Beginner's Guide To Restraints

By Ekaterina Mironova

Even the best of the best always start from somewhere. As you admire the ease with which some people suspend their partners and the videos of a submissive in a complicated restraint, know that it takes tremendous practice and slow growth to get there. If you are interested in beginning your journey into the world of restraints, there is one fundamental thing you need to be constantly aware of; safety first.


Before the session starts, always discuss your safe word. This ensures that you are both on the same page in case of any difficulties. Once the safe word is uttered, stop immediately and carefully release your submissive from the restraints.

Always ensure that the restraints are not too tight. Once you have the restraints in place, always ensure that you can run two fingers under the rope comfortably. If not, loosen the restraints until that is possible. Always leave extra room around the rib cage to ensure the maximum lung expansion for comfortable breathing.

Never tie up any person with a heart condition, a respiratory problem or a circulation problem. They are prone to attacks at any moment or the restraints may aggravate their already weak body functions.

Do not put pressure on joints, veins and nerves. Applying undue pressure on joints causes tremendous pain, and in the case of suspension may even lead to dislocation. Cutting off the veins leads to disrupted circulation, causing numbness and oxygen deprivation of the affected cells. Nerve damage is a great risk when it comes to restraints with permanent damage if it is not detected fast enough.

Always have a pair of flat scissors on hand to quickly cut the rope and restraints when your submissive is in distress. The longer you take, the greater the damage so always ensure that you always have their wellbeing as the first priority.

Once your submissive is in restraints, never leave them unattended at any moment. They are helpless and if any accident may occur while you are absent they would have no way of helping themselves. Always untie them before leaving the room.

In various positions, numbness is bound to set in. Never leave your submissive tied up for long periods of time as the longer they are in restraints the more likely it is for circulation to slow down and numbness to set in especially in the extremities.

Never attempt suspension techniques if you are unfamiliar with the technique or are inadequately trained to handle the complexities that come with it. Always take restraints a step at a time, slowly advancing through the levels so as to familiarize yourself with the rules and the various ways of handling the complexities of the techniques.

Types of Bondage Restraints

There are various forms of restraints, all designed to serve a different purpose and for different levels. With each type of restraint comes a set of guidelines to ensure that you understand how to include the restraint safely in your session. For beginners, the recommended restraints include;

  • Wrist Cuffs

Made from comfortable material, the wrist cuffs are a great way to start you off. The cuffs have a set of keys and an easy release mechanism to ensure that you can still let off your partner without the key. As a starter, the cuffs will be great to ease your partner into the play and gauge if it is something they would be interested in or not. Always make sure that you do not leave them cuffed for a long time, always checking for circulation throughout the session.

  • Rope Bondage

This encompasses a wide range of techniques, each one more complex that the next. With rope bondage however, there are basic techniques designed for beginners that ease them into the play and help them familiarize themselves with the whole game. A medium sized rope is always recommended as it is easier to manipulate and a whole lot safer than thin ropes. Always ensure that you follow the rope bondage beginner’s guide before starting out.

Restraints are great for BDSM play and the great number of techniques and toy incorporation possibilities ensure that your imagination will be exercised greatly. However, always keep safety first and foremost to make your sessions always pleasurable and with little incidence.
