The 10 Best Sex Bed Straps for Bedroom Bondage
The Testing Process
At Bedbible, we use three different methods to assess products: personal testing, reading manufacturer information, and scouring through real-user reviews. Hands-on testing is always the best option (if we’ve tested a product you can read about it by clicking on the “Read full review” link!). However, even if we can’t get our hands on a product, we can still fully assess a product by comparing manufacturer claims to user experience. As well all know, manufacturers love to talk about how amazing their product is, but those claims don’t always translate to real-world results. By using a variety of trusted online stores to collect and analyze customer reviews, we can compare the claims to the reality, allowing us to highlight the pros and cons of each product. With all this information conveniently gathered in one place, it should be easy for you to decide which set of sex bed restraints you want!
Under Mattress vs Over Mattress Restraints
When looking for some light bondage options that involve tying your partner down to the mattress, you have the option to retrain them above or below the mattress. Under-mattress systems are great since they can be used on any type of bed (even those without bedposts), whereas over mattress setups require bedposts or a bedframe to tie your restraints to. If you’re using ropes to tie up your partner, the process will be significantly more time-consuming than using under-the-mattress sex bed straps. However, some people enjoy learning and executing new types of knots! Also, by tying the restraints yourself, you will have more options to work with than you would from using a pre-made set of sex straps. Ultimately, which option you should choose depends on your bed & the level of time you’re willing to spend restraining your partner.
What are sex bed straps?

Get All Tied Up
Sometimes we are not ready for a full sex bed straps kit to restrain our partner (or get restrained).
Sometimes the only thing that we are looking for is to spice things up a bit and give a small turn in some new things to enhance our pleasure.
Or, if you have already a sex bed strap kit that you use to restrain your partner and you are looking for an extra attachment, then take a look at the next product!
Not everything is sex bed straps, maybe you are an intermediate or advanced user that is looking for something else, or perhaps sex bed straps are not appealing to you and you need something else to get adventurous.
Below I’m going to show you two options that are going to blow your mind and you will be wanting to do a test drive!
Are you inspired by Fifty Shades of Grey?
When Fifty Shades of Grey came to light with the first book, everyone (mostly women) were out of their minds.
Fifty Shades of Grey came in a popular way to show that BDSM is not that bad after all and that we all have our kinks, especially if you are super-rich (pun intended).
If you are like me, and you have read the books, or maybe not like me but you have watched the movie, or even totally different you haven’t ever watched the movie or read the books, but you know about the topic, at least for “common knowledge”. Then you must admit there are some good and bad things about it. Below I will list a few things from my perspective about the subject.
What is it about?
Fifty Shades of Grey is a novel that nowadays has a movie also about a 21-year-old student called Anastasia who begins a relationship with a 27-year-old man called Christian Grey, who is a successful, powerful, rich, businessman, who later offers a non-disclosure agreement to her for a private sexual relationship where she is going to discover some of the kinks of him, mostly BDSM.
Is it actually BDSM?
Well, that depends on your conception of BDSM, for many it can be, for others it is just a joke, and many others can consider it as a vanilla BDSM, personally, I consider this last one as it is a fictional story targeting women from all ages and all cultures, so real BDSM would be a bit too much for a public audience.
Is it an interest story then?
Well, I think it is, actually what I most like it is was to see the perspective from a woman since I’m a man, I think it is something we as men are always interested in, as for the sexual parts I think it was more like a “general” women dream while the character of Christian is a stereotype many men wants to be.
So if you ask me if you should read the book, perhaps you should, there isn’t anything wrong as long as you keep it as fictional, but you have to keep your mind open knowing it is not true BDSM and if you move the story to a real-life can be a very scary, manipulative and sexual abuse story.
Is there anything good about it?
I believe so since the story came out, it has been one of the best sellers and the movie was very welcome, but you might be wonder, what’s good on that if you are not even appealed to know about it? well, persons who read the book are starting to be more open about those subjects, which, in case you are into it, it might be good because you can find easily a partner that might want to try at least a soft BDSM. But on the other hand, if you consider the story from a real perspective it is not much than sexual abuse, harassment, and violence, which is a totally different concept from BDSM.
Restraints and BDSM
So most likely, if you are alone and looking for a partner in crime, you might found actually women that have read the book or seen the movie that wouldn’t think it is weird to use a set of sex bed straps to be like Anatasia and Grey or even some other BDSM toys, like these, so, the activities in the book might be a vanilla BDSM for some, but the truth is that it has open opportunities for some others to explore, and who knows, maybe your new partner could like it more than you expect!
Just please bear this in mind!
The story is fictional, if you hear this story without knowing it you can be sure it is a story from a violented woman who needs help ASAP, Christian the male character, is abusive, possessive, and violent, Anastasia, on the other hand, sounds like a woman who can’t stand against a man like him. In BDSM this never happens, in order to have a relationship of this kind, you must speak with your partner, communication is everything as well as respect.
So what do we need to have a BDSM relationship?
In order to have a proper BDSM relationship, you must know there are healthy and ethical ways to combine pain and pleasure. A BDSM relationship requires communication, self-knowledge, being emotionally stable, mature, self-awareness, trust, and independence. It’s not just about harming other ones in order to have pleasure, but to take care of your partner and both get pleasure from the same things, or would you like to get violated, harmed, or even raped just to give pleasure to others? Don’t get misled, a fictional story is going to be always fictional, learn to separate good things from bad things. What will always help you is to put yourself in the other one’s shoes with something you don’t like (or you are not sure if you like it or not).
How to be safe with Sex Bed Straps?
So let’s think that you have a partner already that likes to play with sex bed straps or that you found a person that connects with you in that way.
How can you make it a safe and good experience to repeat again?
I’m going to write down a list of things I consider to be things you should always do in order to have a nice, safe, and wonderful time with sex bed straps.
One of the most important things to have in a relationship, especially if you are using sex bed straps or you are into BDSM is trust.
Basically, you are submitting yourself to your partner (or your partner to you) giving free will to do whatever you (your partner) want with the other bodies, it is not just about tying up somebody to a bed but to know the one that is not tied up is going to use the confidence to seek pleasure for both without harming or putting anyone at risk.
So if your partner is confident and trusts you and you trust your partner, it means your relationship is on a different level and you are going to enjoy it more.
What do you like and what you don't
It is satisfying to know the kinks of the other one, but it is good to know what your partner doesn’t like as well as you let your partner know what you don’t like.
In this way, none of you are going to get a bad experience and probably an awkward moment and you are going to use your time wiser to get more pleasure, never do anything your partner doesn’t like.
Safewords are a topic that might be silly nowadays for many due to Fifty Shades of Gray as it turned to be a mainstream topic. But beyond that having safewords might actually improve your experience and keep you safe and happy.
We know sometimes we lose control when we are enjoying and we believe often we can give more pleasure by doing something that might not be perhaps the best call, but we are so excited that our brain doesn’t work well and we do it thinking it is something good.
Having safewords will control these situations if there is anything you or your partner doesn’t like, and as safewords are usually something non-sexual related, it is easy to realize you are doing something wrong (or to let your partner know there is something wrong).
Levels are often suggested, one for something you might be aware of but you can keep going, something to be aware it might not be grateful, and the last one when it is totally not okay and you or your partner should stop.
Always have an emergency back up plan
It is unusual to face a situation that turns to be dangerous but sometimes it is just enough to be prepared in case face something it is out of control. One of the accessories it is recommended to always have bondage scissors. Bondage scissors are just medical scissors made especially to ensure this experience can be safe always, especially when using ropes or lockable straps, the scissors will allow you to cut pretty much through everything without harming your partner or yourself in the intent if something goes wrong.
In the end, we both are pleased, it is possible, depending on how rough the session is, to start to feel not okay about something, perhaps physical pain or even psychological remorse. It is totally normal to feel like that, but what can help you both is to understand it was just an experience and nothing that was said or done was intended to harm the other one, aftercare means to let the other understand it is okay to have fun like that but that you actually care for the other one beyond your needs and cuddling is a good way to make this process work flawlessly.
How to use sex bed straps
Sex bed straps are easy to use, perhaps, the most complicated part is to learn how to mount them on your bed, but once you figure it out, next time is going to be an easy cake.
In any way, if you are finding trouble with this, I’m going to tell you how to use sex bed straps to take advantage and enjoy your experience!
Mount your sex bed straps
Most of the sex bed straps come with instructions, it is not that is rocket science but when you can actually see the process it is faster, if you are one of the unlucky ones that got sex bed straps without instructions, as I said before, it is not rocket science, you can figure it out how to sort your problem but it will take more time, just ask yourself if you want to keep the sex bed straps attached to your bed for a lifetime or if you want to remove, so it is easy for you to remember how to unmount it and how to mount it again if you need to do so.
Gather everything you might need
Having handy everything you need is useful so you don’t have to stop in the middle of the experience to try to find something, especially if you are not good at keeping your things in their place. Think about what you might need and ask your partner to be sure nothing is forgotten. Things like any kind of toys, lubricant, wet wipes, towels, paper, and any other thing that might be a tool for your experience are always nice to keep it close.
Set up rules and remember safe words
Rules are often important to make sure, no matter how excited you or your partner are, that there are some things that must not be done or certain limits that shouldn’t be trespassed.
Safewords are important too and are an “on-time” sign that something it might not feel okay, is not feeling okay, or that the whole action should be stopped immediately.
But what happens if you or your partner are using a ball gag? Well, you find a way to show the other you are not agreeing to do something or to keep going, snapping fingers, tapping something with your hand, even a peace and love sign can do the trick, the important part is to be safe in order to enjoy more.
Something that might add fun and enjoyment to your experience is to know who is going to be tied up and who doesn’t and if there is a chance to swap roles, which often is interesting. Speak about turns, roles, or any other idea that might add fun in order to know when it is okay to change and do totally differently.
Caring is good but showing it is even better.
After all the fun, caring about your partner is good in other to show there is respect and that nothing said or done was mean in any way to harm him/her. Even when your relationship could be merely to have fun or even a friendship it is very important to know the other you care about him/her in order to have a healthy and good relationship. If you are enjoying and your partner as well, it would be silly to end up your relationship just because of something small like this. Besides, who doesn’t love to have a lovely moment and be spoiled when both of you are cuddling and just post-enjoying.
How to clean sex bed straps
There is no big deal when it comes to cleaning your sex bed straps, mainly because it is unusual those get dirty, but if something messy happens, you can clean them out with warm water and regular clothing soap. You can use a small brush to brush it and let it dry. Try to avoid wetting the metallic parts of the sex bed straps; otherwise, you get the risk of getting those rusty. As usual, I will show you an infographic with a few tips on "how to clean" certain 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.
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.
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.
