Bound by Love: Part 2

These ankle cuffs are a great addition to any toy collection. The Fresh ankle cuffs look cute with their baby blue and hot pink color. They hold up great to a struggling partner, without leaving them feeling uncomfortable or in pain. The liner is padded and covered in a white cloth fabric. I absolutely adore my set.

Use

Do you love to tease your partner, but even when you restrain their hands their legs seem to get in your way? My partner loves to tease me but when I get close to climaxing I push him away. So we decided that ankle cuffs were the next thing we needed to add to our toy box. Since I already have the Fresh Buckle Collar and the Fresh Wrist Restraints it only seemed fit to add the Fresh Ankle Restraints over all the other choices.

The Fresh Ankle Restraints definatly live up to the other Fresh products high quality standards. They are very comfy to wear, even while struggling. Now I must say that while teasing your partner it doesn't matter how you position their legs; either flat against the bed, knees bent with ankles close to their butt, or even feet elevated above their head. However if you plan on having intercourse with your partner while they are wearing the ankle restraints you should make sure that their legs are either bent or elevated. Because with both their legs flat against the bed you will not be able to comfortably insert yourself.

I found that there are quite a few ways to use these restraints:

On the bed:
1.) Legs flat against the bed (either open or closed)
2.) One leg tied to the bed, and the other free to place on your partners shoulder
3.) Both ankles bound at your/your partners butt, knees bent
4.) Legs elevated above your/your partners head (tied to the bed, like a "V")
5.) Ankles tied/bound together, with you or your partner on either their back or stomach
6.) Ankles and wrists "Hog Tied" behind them (while laying on your stomach)

On a chair:
1.) Tied separated to the front legs of the chair
2.) Tied separated to the back legs of the chair
3.) Tied together to the center of the chair

I know that there is an endless possibility of positions when it comes to restraining you or your partner; but these are just the ones that I have tried and experienced so far.

Design / Craftsmanship / Material / Size / Fit

Overall the Fresh Ankle Restraints design is very nice and the craftmanship is what I consider to be high quality. I love how the pink strip is the buckle part, and the blue is the cuff part of the restraints. This allows for the cuffs to be used by people with slightly smaller and larger ankles to use them comfortably. The pink extends 1 1/2 inches (on both sides) beyond the 11 3/4 inch blue cuffs which allows people with ankle sizes from 8 inches (smallest) to 12 inches (largest).

The blue Polyethylene is only on the outside of the ankle restraints, and on the inside is foam covered on a soft white fabric. The white fabric feels kinda like cotton to me, it's very soft and flexible. Since there is foam in between the two layers the cuffs comfortably form around your ankles; making the experience more enjoyable. All three materials, the polyethylene, the foam, and the white fabric are easily cleaned and maintained.

The buckle on these ankle restraints is known as a roller buckle. This means that the side of the buckle that faces out away from the cuff has a small metal cylinder that covers it. The cylinder rolls when the strap is placed through the buckle; this allows for it to be buckled with ease. But it also tightens up around the buckle if the strap is pulled too hard. So when you or your partner struggles the strap will not move; preventing it from coming undone.

*The pink strip is also made from the polyethylene material*
    • Adjustable
    • Fits comfortably
    • Well made / sturdy

Performance

I am very pleased by the Fresh Ankle Restraints performance. They have held up great during, foreplay, teasing, a struggling partner, and even some rough sex. The rivets that hold the pink strap into the blue cuffs hold up great and have not come loose yet; (now let me tell you, I struggle a lot and mine are still like new). They are quick and easy to put on, it may take a minute to get the hang of it but once you do you will have your partner bound for your domination before they know what's happening.

When I got these I already had the matching collar and the wrist restraints so I knew that these ankle restraints would be what I was looking for. And they have lived up to the Fresh BDSM standards of high quality adult toys. They are easily cleaned, stored and used which is a major plus in my book and probably yours as well.

I personally love how they conform to your ankles, which makes them universal and versitile. Each time you take them off the foam returns to the way it was when you first took them out of the plastic box they came in. So they are always like new, always!
    • Comfortable during use
    • Easy to put on / use
    • Holds up to use well

Care and Maintenance

To clean the Fresh Ankle Restraints all you will basically need is a warm damp wash cloth, and some mild soap. For the outer layer of the cuffs simply take the wash cloth and rub the soap and water on the blue and pink sections of the cuffs. Then make sure that they dry before you store them away.

Now if you need to clean the cloth part of the cuffs it will take a little bit longer. You will need to take the soap and center it on the dirty area if you are spot cleaning it; or if you are cleaning the whole area you need to spread it over the whole thing. When rubbing in the soap make sure to use a small circular motion to ensure that you get deep into the fabric. Once you have worked in the soap you can take the restraints and run it under the faucet. Just make sure that the water temp is warm (not HOT or COLD), and that it's not turned up high. A small steady stream will work perfectly. Start washing the soap out from the top pushing the soap down and out the bottom of the cuffs.

After they are washed you can either let them air dry or toss them in the dryer. Make sure that if you put them in the dryer you first place them inside a pillow case and tie the top; this way the buckles won't catch on anything inside the dryer and mess them up.

Now that the cuffs have been cleaned and dried you can store them away. You can store them in a bag, box, or drawer. I choose to store mine flat in my toy box. Also they can be buckled and stored away in a circle, just make sure that you put them somewhere dry. The last thing you want to do is go to pull them out for some BDSM play and have them smell soured and mildewed. YUCK!
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store

Packaging

Like all other Fresh products the ankle restraints come packaged in a plastic bubble pouch, with a back insert that has the name of the product, a brief description and a few pictures. Also on the back there is a small paragraph that reads:

Gotcha! Our fun, stylish Ankle Restraints pair feature D-rings and adjustable buckles for any mood or occasion! Made from hot pink & blue vegan-friendly polyethylene with quality stitching and comfort-backed for added pleasure! Take the fun to a whole new level!

The package says that the ankle cuffs fit ankles from 9 inches to 14 inches, but I found that they actually fit ankles from 8 inches to 12 inches.

You can also use the packaging for storage but I find that for me it takes up way too much space.
