Bondage Furniture and Props

Bondage Furniture and Props

BDSM is often a carefully planned exercise in trust and intimacy. A lot of scene setting can be involved, literally, as BDSM encounters are commonly known as scenes. Scenes require props, and there are many kinds of BDSM props and bondage furniture available for people to experiment with their kinks.

Props for punishment

One of the most popular kinks is wanting to be ‘punished’ by a sexual partner. Or, conversely, wanting to be the dominant player in that scene. Couples might create a bondage dungeon or playroom where they can live out their fantasies, and fill it with BDSM furniture that can be used for a variety of purposes.

Some dungeon furniture takes its cues from historical corporal punishment devices, such as bondage stocks and pillories. Frames and racks are used to stretch out the submissive partner, and of course, there are no hard and fast rules on who has to be submissive. Many couples swap and change, depending on the mood. It’s all about talking it through beforehand. Some racks can swivel, swinging the restrained person around or even upside down, for a new perspective on the erotic encounter. Some are cold steel while others are cushioned for comfort. It’s all about personal preference. Paragraph

Devotion and worship SubHeader

Bondage furniture also lends itself to showing complete partner devotion. Sex chairs and worship seats are used to allow one partner to either sit, recline or kneel while still being restrained. Some of these chairs are designed almost clinically, with bare frames and thin cuffs designed to focus purely on the pleasure in the punishment aspect of the experience. Others are built with comfort in mind. Worship seats, in particular, come in various forms and with multiple supports, including backrests to support the most devoted submissive.

The temptation of technology

When we think of electronic sexual devices, we might think of vibrators and similar. But there are much bigger, more ambitious machines that simulate full penetrative sex either without a partner or with a partner as observer or facilitator. Sexual machines have been around since the 16th century, and there’s even a museum in Prague dedicated to them. Sex machines today come in a wide variety of models and can allow couples to indulge in sexual positions or activities previously considered impossible.

Staying in bed

As well as the more unusual fetish furniture, there are ways of turning a regular bed into some high-class bondage equipment. A bedroom can become a bondage room. Bondage gear can be attached to a suitable bed frame, and specialist bondage beds are now available too. A bondage bed can appear to be a standard bed frame, but with connections under the mattress to attach chains, ropes or other restraints. Other bondage beds don’t hide that they are set up for BDSM sex, with bondage frames fitted with cuffs or manacles. Specialist sheets and bedding are also available. Sex can be wet and slippery, so wipe-clean materials like PVC are very desirable. There are even dedicated PVC mats, some with inflatable sides, for couples who want to take the fun off the bed but keep it horizontal.

Sex swings

One of the most well-known items of sex furniture is the sex swing. A sex swing is a device which suspends one partner and may partially restrain them, depending on the type of swing. Swings are often used to allow couples to experiment with positions that are challenging to achieve without the assistance of the swing. The person in the swing feels almost weightless, as it supports them in just the right places. Traditional swings usually allow the ‘swinger’ to lie back and may have stirrups for the legs or ankles. Door swings are straightforward devices that attach to a door and allow the hands and ankles to be moved into a variety of positions.

There are also body swings, yoga swings and fantasy swings, all variants on finding unique ways to support and restrain the body to enhance sex and pleasure. Some swings can even be upgraded with pillows and props. Some are for comfort and to make a long night of wild sex easier on the body. Others are to enhance pleasure, such as attachable dildos or vibrators.

Sex furniture and BDSM really do go hand in hand, or, as it may be, hand in cuff. Props, bondage equipment and bondage furniture all help bring kinks and fantasies to life, and as long as there are trust and safety, can massively enhance people’s sex lives.
