best Sex Collar in test
There are plenty of sex collars on the market to please the fantasies of any sub or dom, it can be difficult to know just which one to choose. We’ve scoured the market and whittled it down to the best seven out there. Through detailed research, we’ll take a look at which are the best value for money, which are better for beginners to BDSM or advanced players, materials, versatility, and—of course—the all-important kink factor!

The Secret Behind Ranking the Best Sex Collars

There really isn’t much of a secret: you just need to be honest, unbiased, and conclusive! Every collar we’ve selected represents its own category, meaning it outperformed other potential contenders. However, unlike our regular lists, these toys aren’t meant to be directly compared to each other by the reader: each one serves a particular purpose! You should first determine the type of bondage collar you’re looking for and then look at the potential options (and how well they scored) to make your decision. Each product has been individually scored in Design, Ease of Use, and Quality. Every product has also received a conclusive “Bedbible Rating”, alongside the “User Ratings” score (which represents the average consumer experience with that particular product). With so much information in the palm of your hand, we hope it will be very easy to find the best sex collar for you!

The Secret Behind Ranking the Best Sex Collars

Types of Sexual Collars

Although most people just think of a leather collar as a sexual collar, there are actually a wide variety of options available (though you can certainly get a leather collar if you desire!). Here are a few of the most common variations you’ll see and the benefits they provide.

  • Padded – Being padded, these collars are perfect for long-term wear. While your sub will be completely under your control, they won’t be suffering from a sharp collar digging into their neck!
  • Posture – Unlike padded collars, posture collars aren’t built for comfort: they’re built to hold the sub’s head/neck in the perfect position! By restricting the neck’s movement, your sub will be forced to look straight ahead at all times.
  • Lockable – If you’re worried about your sub “escaping” (or just want to add an extra layer of domination into the mix), using a lockable collar will ensure your sub can’t take it off without permission.
  • With Leash – As the name implies, these collars simply come with an included leash. Popular in puppy and pony play, you’ll enjoy leading your sub around, basking in their shame.
  • Harness – Incorporating the collar into a larger design, a harness not only has a grip around your sub’s neck but around their body as well!
  • With Restraints – These collars use restraints in their design, often allowing you to restrain your sub’s hands behind their back (or in front of them) for your pleasure. Designs vary widely, so the restraints often extend beyond a hands-only approach!
  • With Nipple Clamps – These collars come with chained nipple clamps attached, allowing you to enjoy a bit of nipple play in addition to dominance.

FAQ

Are sexual collars only for subs?
No, doms can wear them too! Even if you’re not into powerplay, they can be used. And they should, they’re a lot of fun!
Are sexual collars uncomfortable?
Most sex collars will sit comfortably as long as you adjust them to the right fit. Not too tight, not too loose.
Can sexual collars be dangerous?
Sex collars are not dangerous, as long as they are not too tight, they are perfectly safe to use. If you are worried about safety being an issue during playtime, make sure you have a safety word or safety action so that you can signal to your partner that it’s time to stop.
Can I wear my sexual collars in public?
Yes! They can be a great fashion statement.
Do I need to wear a sexual collar if I'm a sub?
You don’t *need* to wear a collar if you don’t want to. While they’re certainly a common accessory, whether or not to include a collar in your roleplay is between you and your dom!

What Is A Sex Collar

A sex collar is a choker-like accessory that is used usually in BDSM play, worn by the submissive as the ultimate power symbol between a sub and a dom. Generally, these collars are used to symbolize the progress a sub has made in their D/s relationship, but many people choose to wear them simply as a fashion statement. In addition to regular collars/chokers, many subs may wear more advanced collars that incorporate muzzles, leashes, clamps, or locks into their design.

With other accessories

With other accessories

Invest in some accessories to add to your sex collar. Think restraints, leads, cock-rings, nipple clamps. Most collars will come with at least one accessory, but it doesn’t hurt to build up that collection!

How To Clean A Sex Collar

It’s important to give your sex collar some TLC and keep it nice and clean so that stays looking as good as the day you bought it. If your collar is made from leather, invest in some leather cleaning products. Clean the metal parts of collars with warm soapy water. If it’s made velvet, you can use warm soapy water too but make sure to be gentle. If the collar is made from lace, use a gentle detergent that you would use for lace underwear or other delicate items and handwash the collar. All can be patted and hung out to dry. Then put them in a safe place, ready to be used next time.

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.
