We’ve been anxiously anticipating the 50 Shades theatrical debut since the moment it was revealed, fantasizing about the breathtaking bondage scenes that will appear on the big screen in just 148 days (seriously, we’re that excited). While wondering which of our favorite fetish toys will grace mainstream screens, we quickly realized that upon this release, tons of closeted kinksters will very eagerly dive right into the vast sea of leather, clamps, and restraints. The incredible variety of BDSM gear can be overwhelming to a newbie. There’s just so much to choose from! How do I know which toy is right for me? Check out these BDSM essentials to get you started, easing your way into your very own favorite shade of play.
BLINDFOLD: Who knew that something as simple as a sexy silk mask could bring the most intense pleasures to life? Sensory deprivation is an incredibly simple and effective way of increasing the body’s sensitivity, muting one sense to increase the others. Try blindfolding your partner before teasing them with a feather tickler – you’ll quickly see how much more intense your lover’s trembles of satisfaction will become!
NIPPLE CLAMPS: The nipple is one of the most sensitive spots on your lover’s body. In fact, for women, the sensation from the nipple travels to the same part of the brain as sensations from the vagina and clitoris. Logic will tell you that your climax can only intensify if you simultaneously pleasure your nipples along with your genitals. The next time you find yourself at play, add some feather nipple clamps to keep your nipples perked with pleasure, while the super-soft feathers delicately tickle your sensitive skin for even more stimulation.
CUFFS: Consensual restraint is another very simple way to quickly increase your partner’s pleasure. Very much like sensory deprivation, restraining a lover’s arms puts the dominant partner in complete power. Not only is this level of trust as sexy as you can get, but this leaves the comfortably cuffed partner with exceptionally heightened sensitivity as they anticipate what will happen next.
