FAQ

Who can use bondage ticklers?
Bondage ticklers can be used by anyone who wants to effortlessly step into the world of BDSM, or for users who want to engage in sensation play.
What is sensation play?
Sensation play is a domination technique in BDSM, that involves stimulating the five senses of the body. It usually does not involve pain/punishment at all, rather it focuses on the different ways you can stimulate individual senses for sexual pleasure. It's perfect as an introduction to BDSM for beginners, a way to improve foreplay, or for advanced users, as a break from the extreme practices.
Can I combine bondage ticklers with other toys?
Absolutely yes. If you aren't keen on exploring the wild side and you are just looking for interesting additions to your sex arsenal, consider bondage ticklers as novelty sensations that only improve on the sensations your favorite toys give you.
Are bondage ticklers good for beginners?
Yes! Bondage ticklers can be a great option for beginners, as they are non-intimidating and can be a great entryway into sensation play. Of course, bondage ticklers don't have to be an 'entryway' and can be your go-to play device for sex, no matter when!
What material is best for a bondage tickler?
The best material for a bondage tickler depends on how you want to use it, as leather/faux-leather straps are great for flogging as well as teasing, while feathers are perfect for teasing and tickling.

What is a Bondage Tickler?

A bondage tickler is a sensation specific sex toy, which is intended for caressing and tickling the external erogenous zones of the body; they are also great introductory items for bondage play. Perfect for beginners, they feel best when paired with other BDSM items such as blindfolds, rope, cuffs, etc, as these items increase sensitivity and sensation play. A bondage tickler can come in many different desingns and materials, such as feather ticklers and leather straps; they can also come with extra features such as dildo handles, and an attached flogger. Bondage ticklers are great when paired with other toys as this can add to the sensations, for example nipple/clit suckers, blindfolds, clit clamps, glass toys (warming and cooling elements).

The on-a-budget bondage tickler by Lovehoney is the perfect way to build anticipation during foreplay. Made with a dense feather poof for maximum pleasure, the feather tickler feels soft against the skin and makes bondage foreplay a breeze. The Oh’s only setback is the short handle and small stature, which some users may find offputting, however, considering the low price and dense feathers, this is a tolerable “flaw”.  An excellent budget-friendly bondage tickler for solo explorers, who want to amplify the sensations during masturbation with a vibrator, or couples looking to channel their inner kinkiness.

Hogtie paradise

Hogtie paradise

The best part about bondage ticklers is that they can be combined with virtually any other sex toy. During your bound tickling session, ask your dom to be hogtied and gently tickled — while having a magic wand vibrate against your vulva. The orgasms are instantaneous and you will be begging for more each time you try this technique!

How to clean bondage ticklers?

Depending on the material of the bondage tickler there are several methods that you can use to clean your tickler toy. For natural or faux feather ticklers, we do not recommend cleaning often as it can lead to material damage. Using lukewarm or slightly cool water, and mild baby shampoo cleanse and rinse the feathers ever so gently. Wring out the water with a lint-free towel as gently as possible, then dry upside-down until water stops dripping. After this use a low-speed hairdryer to fluff out the feathers. Leather or PU leather ticklers can be cleaned with dedicated surface cleansers.

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.
