We use the silk tie-ups/blindfolds instead. They're more versatile, store easily, and are a little more discreet if discovered.

We've got a pair of metal ones (similar to the ones you're comparing), and I really do prefer them over soft/fuzzy ones. Handcuffs are for the pain as well as the restraint. There's something sexy and naughty about seeing welts or bruises left behind after play.

I like fuzzy occassionally but they can get very itchy with sweat, so metal can be better for longer term wear

IMO, this set from Sports Sheets is the best starter set, and it works for experienced people as well.

It's less likely to cut off circulation, and cause pain of the wrong kind.

She preferred fur, though the sport sheets cuffs are even more of a hit. Plus the lack of cold metal meant more options and less unintended suffering.

From those two choices I'd go with metal. Fuzzies are a little too cutesy to me. But my favorite way to be restrained is with rope.

I am on my second pair of cuffs. I have the red feather ones now. A step up from what I had. The all metal ones for sure. But metal if pulled against will cut into the skin. I like being locked up but I don't want the possiblity of marks lasting more then a few hours. Moving to the sports cuffs.

Absolutely metal. I've never seen a pair of "fuzzy handcuffs" that can stand up to hard play. Any pulling or struggling will usually break them and most come with a release latch to let yourself out. If you are just looking for something playful they may be fine but if you want bondage spend the extra for a good pair of metal locking cuffs.

Speaking as a slave... (yes, I'm female)... I'm just not into anything fuzzy.... let alone PINK... LOL

Our current metal cuffs are standard police issue cuffs. Call me creepy, but these were actually my father's PD cuffs.

We also have the nylon/velcro cuffs. These are very good for creative restraint scenarios... and regardless of what some say, if you put them on correctly, you're not going to get out of them quickly. Believe me, I've become quite the escape artist and I can't get out of them without a lot of time, and wiggle room.

I'd love to get some leather cuffs, in the future.

I love my metal cuffs, I have a pair of really heavy metal German cuffs, and two lighter pairs that are jointed in the middle. Irish handcuffs can be quite nice too, depending on the shape of the wrist, but have to be sized correctly.

Many BDSM'ers use the term "play"....

Fuzzy would fall into the "play" catagory.

Metal, REAL metal cuffs is not play. It's serious. You pull on them and they hurt. You pull on them and you're not going anywhere. It's reality.

So, yes... Metal... ALL THE WAY!

*smiles*

We don't play. We're very serious about what we do. But we do it with smiles, tears, and at some point---- pain. If there isn't some pain, somewhere..... what's the point?

Not terribly, though that depends on how long you're wearing them (also depends on your personal threshold for discomfort). I find them to be more of a hassle than I feel like dealing with in the moment. I hate the quick release because they come off too easily. At the same time, I dislike not having it there because if/when you lose the keys you're sort of stuck until your partner finds them (not always a fun time). My bf and I have found we like nylon rope the best. It's soft, you can configure it however you like.

We tried them once and I didn't like them, but I'm also kind of a wimp with kink things and don't like being tied up in general, so I think I might be a bad judge.

Metal is a little uncomfortable, but it will be the least of your concern. For those that want metal cuffs but have a nickle allergy, they do make colored metal ones and the enamel acts as a shield for some and you wont react.

Metal cuffs can be very uncomfortable, and they can cut off circulation. I really hate them. Mind, most furry handcuffs are crap too. May I reccomend either of these?
Vegan Jaguar Cuffs

or

Fresh Wrist Restraints

They're more expensive than the ones you've got listed, (though the fresh ones are only just over 30 bucks). But it's *really* worth it.

Prefer metal, fuzzy ones are too cutesy and I don't see how they would be much more comfortable. Metal ones can be uncomfortable, depending upon how long you wear them and the position you are in. If you want comfort go with leather cuffs.

For me they are. Handcuffs aren't my favorite even with fuzzy covers. But, that's just me.

I have used them on others but not on myself. My partner who was wearing them had no problems with it and didn't say anything, so even though I imagine it wasn't the most comfortable, it didn't seem like that was the point.

It depends on what is uncomfortable for YOU during sex. If something cutting into you thrills you, metal might be good for you, but if not, try something comfier. If you want something more comfortable I would get something like the fur lined soft ones that don't have the locks. There are some that are really well put together and hard to get out of while still being soft and comfortable unlike the ones with any metal. That fur is still covering metal, so they may still cut into you.

Not that that uncomfortable, but I had a partner who didn't know how to comfortably move me in them. Really hurt!
