Forget The Tar, Feather Me Right

This item isn't worth it because it is only for light play, not for anything too rough, serious, or kinky. It's not that exciting, and there are way too many products like it on the market already, so it's hardly anything to get excited about. However, for beginners, it is a great starting point into the world of "tie me up, tie me down" - a great way to get your feet wet or just... get wet.

Use

These are great for just a little kink. You can lock your partner up or they can lock you up; either way it's fun for both parties. The warden gets all the fun of a buffet without the fuss of the meal interfering with your appetites... and the prisoner gets the pleasure of being pleasured without any of the work except for a little bucking.

A few warnings, though:

1. Warden, make sure your prisoner's legs are shackled (tying works fine too) because when you get all worked up, you find plenty of ways to get creative with your legs and toes. Stay away from the mouth unless you like a few lovebites and nips on the neck or somewhere a little more sensitive. This is good for beginners just playing at a little kinky bondage, some light roleplay or (my favorite use) the "sex buffet." It's fun to get to play with someone and do anything you like; it's also fun to be played with and have no say in the game.

2. The pleasure might get too intense or things might get too rough, so even if you're just having light fun, I'd pick a safeword - plus sometimes you say "Stop" but you mean "Keep going."

3. Watch out for allergies; feathers can aggravate them.

4. Even if you don't have allergies, the "tickle factor" might be too much, as well as the fact that these can become itchy, especially if you plan on wearing them for a night of marathon sex.

5. Some guys or even girls might find them too feminine, so remember when you buy any toy keep your partner in mind and buy something they would feel comfortable wearing and enjoy as well.

6. These handcuffs are flimsy, so if you're looking for something more intense, you might wear these out quickly or break them. For ADVANCED users, I'd suggest something much more durable. Although the feathers are good for minimizing chafing, you might find them itchy - so even advanced users might want to find a sturdy pair but wrap a couple scarves around each wrist to prevent pain. Again, for advanced users or adventurous beginners, even though the feathers give you a nice ticklish sensation, sometimes pain in smaller doses can be nice - a little pain can make your pleasure more intense - so if you like pain, even just a little bit of pain, I'd pick something built without comfort in mind.

I'd say this isn't something for your serious BDSM user but for someone just looking to try something new or to dip their toe in the kinkier waters. It's fun and not too serious, but if used right, can be used for either pleasure or pain, 'cause flimsy or not, once you cuff them you'll have at least a little time to inflict some pain without wearing the cuffs out completely or a lot of time to give your partner pleasure. These can last you a long time if you treat them gently and use them as intended.

Design / Craftsmanship / Material / Size / Fit

The design is nice if you're looking for something cute and innocuous-looking. The product is adequately made: not the sturdiest but not the flimsiest product out there. The material is nice if you're looking for a sensual tickle and some comfort, but it can also be itchy, which can make it uncomfortable, so it goes both ways (pun intended). It has a nice furry feel. I can't comment on the smell since I wasn't smelling it. It seemed to fit fine for me so I'd say it should be okay for the average user. I didn't notice any special features that made it from most other products.

Performance

It worked fine for light play, but it's not good if you intend to use it in more intense sessions. It met my needs and expectations because, when you buy handcuffs like that, you don't expect them to be built for anything more then light play without too much kink involved. However, if you are creative, you can find plenty of ways to be kinky even if your partner is only lightly tied down; just get creative with your partner's body and household items. Fingernails are also great for a little light pain, plus it gives your partner a good playful sensation to match the cuffs. I used them only as intended but you could take the cuffs and rub them slowly up and down the body for extra sensory play.
    • Chafes
    • Comfortable during use
    • Does not work well

Care and Maintenance

I just store the cuffs in my special drawer. I don't see why you would have to come up with any other place to store it.
    • Easy to store

Experience

It's a fun little experience to take control over someone. It gives you a little power trip and it really excites me to be able to do whatever I want to someone; for me, that's a major turn-on. When used on me, I'm not very good at relinquishing control; however, if your partner is generous, it's well worth giving up a little bit of freedom. And that's coming from a control freak who is claustrophobic: I can only take so much, but it's worth giving up a few personal liberties for the pleasure you can receive.

One major tip I would give: this should only be done with someone you trust implicitly, as you don't want someone to have control who could abuse it. (Sorry, not trying to be all "public service announcement," but there are people who take advantage of our weaknesses, so make sure you can get out and you'll be fine.) Have fun and reach for that big bang, bright stars in your head, an amazing powerful orgasm.

Follow-up commentary
Though I enjoy feathers and have gotten some use out of these, I'll never be a fan of the feather love cuffs. Mainly because I'm usually the one doing the cuffing as opposed to being cuffed and if I tie them up I want them to stay that way! If you're not careful these are way too easy to break and relatively easy to get out of. Having said that, with the proper care and not overextending their use there is no reason why they can't last you a while. A few tips; be careful of moisture water or wetness (as the case may be) are never good with feathers. Like oil and water, they just don't mix. Don't put too much strain on the cuffs and if you're the wearer always keep the key handy!!!

Obviously these aren't one of my favorite or most used products.I do tend to use them when I'm being cuffed, but then that's just because I don't like giving up control. I know that, key or no key, these aren't too hard to get out of. I guess that is a good selling point for beginners.I haven't grown more attached to these but if you are just looking for something light then these are for you.
