Wrist cuffs by PHS International

Fresh was a flop

For those more experienced with bondage, rougher, or with metal allergies, I would recommend passing on these. The metal pieces sit on the skin while the fake leather stretches too much to make these safe. If you are in the market for something pretty and fairly sturdy for lighter play, then these will be fine, but in the end there are better options.

Use

These are a pair of fake leather bondage cuffs in pink and blue from PHS International. They have a foam core and fleecey lining that make them very comfortable to wear. The downside of these is the fake leather. We used these on a Saint Andrew's cross and encountered some problems. All the stitching and metal pieces held up, but the fabric stretched when they were put on. This caused them to be too tight which can be a serious problem during bondage.

Overall, I would recommend these to beginners who aren't looking for any kind of heavy play as long as they are aware of the concerns.

Design / Craftsmanship / Material / Size / Fit

As far as aesthetics go, I am very pleased with how they look. The colors are super bright, and they are shiny. The rings are placed well for restraints. There are two issues with the design. The first and more minor of them is that the fleece material that they are lined with stuck to my skin which made them chafe a little. The second, and more important in my opinion, design issue is that they have the metal rivets actually go through the lining as well. I have a metal allergy which makes these impossible to wear without addressing. I painted over the metal with a coat of white nail polish, but you could also put in a lining on them if you still want them but need to take care of that.

As far as craftsmanship is concerned, I was pretty impressed with these. I am very, very hard on restraints as a submissive. I fight them hard. I struggled with these both outside of play and on the cross. There is no way to tell that I was trying to rip these off of a cross for an hour with all my strength, so I have to give it to them there.

The material has a huge issue for people who play harder. The faux leather stretches which made them go on too tight. By the end of our scene, my hands were turning colors. Then, because the fabric stretches, it was hard to get them off. My dominant was extremely upset with them.

The size it great. I have a 7.25" wrist, and I was in the middle of these. They will go smaller or bigger.

Performance

I thought these were great once I fixed the metal issue until my dominant was trying to get them off of me, but you know, when you are in a scene as a submissive, you don't always know what is going on with your body as well because you are getting so many different signals. After he explained to me what happened, I was pissed as well. You can't have a cuff that goes on too tight like these. It restricts blood flow and can cause serious damage.

They stood up to me pulling and fighting with them, but they aren't safe to use for rough play.
    • Comfortable during use
    • Does not work well
    • Holds up to use well

Care and Maintenance

These are like most cuffs; you can wipe them down with soap and water or alcohol, but your not going to be able to sanitize them. That being said, they are super easy to store. Just keep them in a cool dry place.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store
Follow-up commentary
I let a friend use these, and they had problems with them being too tight and stretching oddly. These are show cuffs not for serious bondage. They are just not safe.

    Good thing I didn't order these before reading this
  • geekkink
    Yeah it took like a good fifteen minute hand massage to get her hands warmed back up after just about thirty minutes on the cross, I was greatly displeased with the way these stretched on her.
