My Experience With Sportsheets Beginner's Bondage Fantasy Kit

My Personal Experiences with Sportsheets Beginner's Bondage Fantasy Kit

Trying Something New

Let me start by saying that the wife and I really stretched ourselves with this bondage kit. Neither of us have ever fantasized about tying up or being tied up, but were excited to try something new and have fun together. I volunteered to be the first to be restrained as I was curious what she had in mind once she had me tied down (and as my wife reminded me, this was all my idea to try, anyway). We placed the cuffs around my wrists and ankles and I sat in a chair to start. Not wanting to be completely bound, I opted for her to wrap the straps around the chair legs and tuck them under the rear feet. She placed the blindfold over my eyes and I was now secure. To finish things off, she placed headphones over my ears and turned on some music.

Alone and “Tied Up”

At this point I could see and hear nothing and realized she might not even be in the room. I was left slightly uncomfortable, feeling alone but knowing she was most likely preparing something good! When she finally came back, she started teasing and caressing me all over. The inability to anticipate where she was going next made each touch sizzle. My discomfort with being bound was gone and I enjoyed every minute from here out. Once she removed the blindfold and headphones, the sight I beheld was amazing. I was correct that she had been preparing something special and the eye-candy was worth the wait! From this point on, you will just have to use your imagination, but I’ll leave you with this: My wife has a performative streak, loves to dance, and enjoys driving me crazy with her touch.

Relax and Have Fun

It didn’t take very long for me to be comfortable with being lightly bound and, in fact, we both enjoyed it. We’ve only had a couple occasions where we had time to really use this kit, but it’s been a lot of fun trying new things and finding new ways to please each other. This kit is absolutely something we will continue to pull out once in a while to add some spice to our evening.

Design

Sportsheets Beginner's Bondage Fantasy Kit Design

Sportsheets' Beginner's Bondage Fantasy Kit is a basic entry level bondage kit and its design reflects that. The soft cuffs are functional, comfortable, and close with simple hook-and-loop. The straps are simple nylon webbing without any adjusters or latches. The blindfold is a single layer of black felt with an elastic band sewn on. The elegance of this kit is its simplicity.

Ease of Use

Sportsheets Beginner's Bondage Fantasy Kit Ease of Use

Using Sportsheets' Beginner's Bondage Fantasy Kit is straightforward: Wrap the cuffs around wrists and ankles then tie them off or secure them otherwise. For those who may be hesitant to be fully restrained, the straps may be tucked between a mattress or under a chair leg, allowing the bonded the option of freeing themselves without help. To attach them more securely, the straps may be tied together or to a chair or bed post.

Quality

Sportsheets Beginner's Bondage Fantasy Kit Quality

The Sportsheets Beginner's Bondage Fantasy Kit is priced to be an entry level kit and its quality reflects that. I wouldn't expect this kit to be around for years but that's not to say it's cheaply made. The blindfold is a single sheet of felt with a simple elastic band sewn on and I wouldn't expect this to last long, at all. The cuffs and straps, on the other hand look and feel well-made and will definitely make it through a sexy week's getaway (and beyond!).

Price

Sportsheets Beginner's Bondage Fantasy Kit Price

At just over $25, the Sportsheets Beginner's Bondage Fantasy Kit is perfect for a sexy vacation or date-night but don't expect to have this kit around for years to come. For an entry-level experiment and light use, however, the price is fair.

Performance

The Sportsheets Beginner's Bondage Fantasy Kit performs its role very well. It's a playful, sexy set that will allow a couple to have fun while building trust and excitement. It's great for sensory play and acting out exciting fantasies without being intimidating. For us, they give the illusion of bondage without the claustrophobic feeling of actually being tied up and brought out the tiniest naughty side from my wife when I was the one being bound.

Packaging

Sportsheets Beginner's Bondage Fantasy Kit Packaging

The cardboard box that contains the Sportsheets Beginner's Bondage Fantasy Kit is simple, elegant, and a bit risque. It has minimal plastic and other packaging materials so there's not a lot to throw away and most of it may be recycled.

FAQ

Can I use the Sportsheets Beginner's Bondage Fantasy Kit if I'm afraid I might be uncomfortable being restrained?
Yes, if you are careful about making sure the straps feel secure but can still be pulled out by the wearer. This is a great way to feel the thrill of being bound without the panic.
I got the cuff coated in lube, what do I do?
Gently wash the cuff in warm water and hang to dry. They claim to be machine washable but I'd avoid using a washing machine or dryer if you want the set to last.
What kind of things could you do with someone restrained with this kit?
I would suggest talking about this with your partner beforehand. See what excites them and do that. Some things you could try would be sensory play, temperature play, role-playing, sexy dances, and teasing...use your imagination!
