    Safety scissors for precise play

    Bondage scissors are a necessity for any bondage situation!

    You should always have a quality pair of bondage scissors on hand if you’re using bondage in the bedroom, as not only are they perfect for creating your bondage fantasies, but they’re important in case you need to perform a quick release.

    These scissors are specifically designed for a precise and clean cut on your bondage tape/rope/cloth etc, whilst not cutting or harming the skin.

    What can you use bondage tape for?

    There are many uses for bondage tape when it comes to spicing up your sex-life, but if you’re new to it then you might be unsure about how many wonderful things you can actually do with bondage tape.

    Bondage

    Bondage

    Bondage

    Bondage tape is specifically designed to perform an easier, less intrusive bondage, as it is easily removed and non-sticky.

    It’s great for tying your partner’s limbs together, and experimenting with positions.

    Another great use for bondage tape is breast bondage– it can be a great visual turn on!

    Pasties

    Pasties

    Pasties

    No, not the delicious baked goods!

    Pasties can be super sexy for visual turn ons, and teasing; with bondage tape, you can experiment with different shapes, to drive your partner wild.

    For visual, and bdsm play, drive your partner wild with bondage tape clothes which will definitely tease them.

    Gag

    This is something you should talk about with your partner beforehand, as you will need to lock down a safe action, instead of a safe word, due to the restriction of the mouth.

    Don't use duct tape!

    Never skimp on safety! When it comes to being safe with bondage/bdsm, don’t go for what you’ve already got in the cupboard as chances are it’s not safe for what you’re doing, and could lead to bodily harm.

    A common misconception with bondage tape, is that duct tape ‘does the job’- it really doesn’t. Yes, it ties your partner up, but at a cost of losing skin, having a reaction, and sporting a bald patch…

    Goodbye, skin...

    Goodbye, skin...

    Goodbye, skin...

    Wearing duct tape on the skin, or intimate areas, for long periods of time will be catastrophic. The longer it’s on, the harder it is to get off, and the more skin you will lose.

    It will end with the wearer desperately trying to soak the tape off in water, or a trip to the emergency room.

    Duct tape is designed for heavy duty projects that DO NOT include human skin.

    Not easy to remove

    Not easy to remove

    Not easy to remove

    Duct tape is not a safe option for bondage/bdsm play for many reasons, but the fact that it cannot be easily removed during play is an absolute no go.

    If the wearer suddenly wants/needs to stop, it will be a while before the duct tape can be removed, and this is not a situation that anyone should be in.

    Adhesive reaction

    Adhesive reaction

    Adhesive reaction

    When you’ve managed to soak the duct tape off after hours, the worst might not have even happened yet- you might develop a reaction to the adhesive, or the tape itself.

    Blisters could form, resulting in a trip to the emergency room, and possibly scarring.

    Goodbye, hair...

    Goodbye, hair...

    Goodbye, hair...

    Whether you prefer to be hair free or not, doesn’t matter when duct tape is involved; it will take a good chunk of hair, and skin!

    Practice aftercare

    With any act of BDSM, you should practice good aftercare; aftercare is important in BDSM as it shows your submissive love, and care after intense scenes. Certain scenes can make you feel mentally, physically, and emotionally tired, which is why it is important to recharge.

    How to use bondage tape

    Before delving into the exciting world of bondage tape, you should know exactly how to use it! Not only for safety, but to ensure you’re getting the most out of the tape.

    Remember; never ever leave someone alone while restrained, and always have a pair of safety scissors available when using any bondage restraint.

    How to use bondage tape

    Experiment with different styles

    Experiment with different styles

    One of the most exciting things about bondage tape is the versatility; you can make lots of sexy body wear with it, and there is no sticky adhesive in the way either!

    Try binding your hands or feet first to see if you/your partner likes it; you can always move up to more advanced bondage when you’re more familiar.

    Communicate

    How to use bondage tape

    In any act of bdsm, communication is vital; be sure to let your partner know what you’re comfortable with, and listen to them- do all this beforehand, or there is a risk of wires being crossed during sex.

    Always have a safe word/action for when you reach your limit- decide this beforehand.

    How to use bondage tape

    How to clean bondage tape

    If your bondage tape is reusable, you should ensure it is clean before you use it again. If it is not reusable, be sure to dispose of it and use new, clean bondage tape. Some bondage tape is waterproof, while some is not, and so it is important to check the packaging and specifics of your tape. If your bondage tape is waterproof, you should take a clean cloth with warm water and antibacterial soap/toy cleaner, and wipe the tape down. Do not get the tape sopping wet as this may interfere with the quality of it! Be sure to thorougly dry your bondage tape with a clean towel- do not leave to air dry. If your tape is not waterproof, take a dry cloth and add a little bit of toy cleaner/ antibacterial soap mixed with water and gently wipe down the tape- do not get the tape sopping wet. Dry immediately with a clean towel- do not leave to air dry.

    Porous
    materials

    Soft plastic, hard plastic, jelly, rubber, Cyberskin are all porous materials, meaning that small particles and bacteria can penetrate the surface. This makes it impossible to completely clean these types of materials.

    Therefore, it is recommended that you use a condom with these types of toys, especially if you are sharing them. Clean these toys with mild soapy water and dry gently with a towel. These materials are more easily damaged, so be sure to be gentle and make sure your toys are completely dry before storing.

    Non-propous
    materials

    Silicone, glass, stainless steel and some hard plastics can all be washed using a mild soap (like you would use on your body) and warm water. Just be careful if your toy contains electrical parts.

    Silicone and stainless steel toys without any electrical parts can also be boiled for sterilisation.

    The toys with electrical
    components

    If your toys contain electrical components, be extra careful when cleaning them and always check the instructions provided with the toy. You can use a gentle cloth and soap to wipe or sex toy cleaner or cleaning wipe to down your toy, making sure that no water comes into contact with the electrical parts.
