Ever since I watched my boyfriend ooo and aaah at a pair of cushioned leather restraints at last year’s sex show, I knew a pair would find a way into in our life eventually.
However, my excitement to finally have a plush pair of leather cuffs like this Berlin set from MEO was killed by the realization that they didn’t come with the D-hooks to tie them together (not sure if D-hooks is the right term, but it’s what I got). So my restraints were really just… cuffs. I was a little annoyed, but I did go to the hardware store and drop a couple dollars on this staple so that I get could started.
The cuffs are of great quality – they’re my go-to restraints and have yet to show any wear whatsoever. This is pretty admirable considering how tightly we have to pull them shut. Unlike the Affordable Leather Hogtie, these were designed with huskier folk in mind, and will definitely fit up to a rather large wrist & ankle size. But for someone like me who, no matter how much weight I gain or lose, maintains tiny wrists & ankles, they take two hands to buckle. Worst case scenario, I COULD slip out of the smallest setting, but it takes work, and it’s a little nice to know I wouldn’t be SOL if my significant other decided to be a dick one day and just leave me there.
The leather is very soft and of course, well padded; the padding with the leather has changed the entire way we’re able to tie each other up. No more “no, not there. That’s my bone… could you turn it the other way?” – just fasten, and it’s automatically comfortable no matter what award position you’ve found yourself in. There are a couple loops on each cuff so you have a few options on how to buckle them to each other (or to something else). The beauty is that these can be buckled to anything, so we much prefer to use these with the Hogtie in place of the tiny, unfinished leather cuffs.
Turns out I love having my ankles restrained. Having my hands tied up is great, but I’ve never had that rush of “I have no control” until I had my ankles strapped to the bed. I was truly helpless, and knowing that I could have my legs tied in any way to accommodate his needs is exactly what I want to know.
Overall, even without included D-hooks, these are an amazing deal for genuine leather, padded restraints.
