Use

These handcuffs are a fairly standard, basic pair of metal cuffs lined with fur so that they are comfortable to use and allow you to play out some light bondage fantasies. You can cuff your partner's hands together and then have your wicked way with them as you watch them squirm.

You can also tie the chain between the cuffs down to another object so you can further restrict their movement.

The fur sleeves on the handcuffs can be removed if so desired, and they can then be used simply as full metal handcuffs if that's your preference as well. Of course without the fur padding, they are much more uncomfortable as your wrists are entirely against the bare metal, but it's nice that the option is there as well if you prefer a more "realistic" feel to your BDSM fantasies.

Design / Craftsmanship / Material / Size / Fit

This set of handcuffs is made to fit people with small to average sized wrists. Basically they will fit wrists that are up to 2" thick and up to 2.75" across, and they do tighten down to accommodate much smaller wrists just 1.5" across. If you have larger wrists than those maximums, then you may want to look elsewhere for a different product.

The two cuffs are connected together by a 3" length of chain, and the chain is attached to each cuff by a "spinner" type fitting which allows the chain to stay straight and not kink and twist on itself.

The cuffs weigh about 4 ounces in all and the build quality is what I'd describe as medium quality. I've seen cheaper novelty types of cuffs, and these are definitely a step above that but they are nowhere near a professional quality set of handcuffs that would be used by actual police or security forces. If you really wanted to I'm sure you would be able to break them with some rough jerking and twisting of your hands but again these are meant for light bondage play and not hard core and intense BDSM sessions.

The cuffs come with 2 keys supplied and even if those aren't readily available you have a safety release on each cuff within easy reach of your fingers which gives you a quick and safe way out if your session starts to get uncomfortable for any reason. I haven't had any problems with the releases jamming so far in the times I've used the cuffs.

The cuffs fit well and are easily adjustable and have lasted well so far, although I have only used them very occasionally. You have to take into account that they are a light bondage item so treated as such...they should last for many sessions for most individuals. If rougher play is done with these, I'm almost certain they would quickly break as they aren't made for rough play and heavier BDSM play.

There are no offensive smells noticeable with this item which is a definite plus as so many toys can have smells and odors that are turn offs just when you are trying to get turned on.

Performance

In usage, these cuffs have added to our bedroom fun. I haven't used them often but in the times we have they have stood up well. They were actually purchased on a whim and weren't intended to be an everyday usage type of item so for the occasional times when we have used them they have served their purpose well.

Whether I was handcuffed in front of my body or behind, they were comfortable for me with the layer of faux fur used to line them providing a soft layer between my wrists and the hard metal of the cuffs themselves. Without the fur liners the cuffs are definitely uncomfortable to wear for more than just a few minutes as they have flat metal edges, so I wouldn't recommended using them in that way. With extended use they may get uncomfortable for some if they are too tightly clamped on so keep in mind not to over tighten them when you first put them on.

If you combine these cuffs with a simple blindfold, which you can either make up yourself or purchase, you have a great start for some light bondage and sensory play. A simple tickler or a light crop/whip can make for some fun times as you treat each other to some soft or painful pleasures all the while being securely constrained by the cuffs.

You can loop rope through the chain between the cuffs and tie it to a headboard or other object if you want to further restrict movement, and I did this with my partner with great results. You can let your imagination be your guide as you come up with interesting ways to taunt and tease your partner while they are being securely restrained by the cuffs in various positions.

Care and Maintenance

The cuffs are easy to care for and clean. The faux fur cuff liners can easily slide off the cuffs and be thrown in the wash. To me the material is similar to furry plush seat covers, so if you are familiar with that type of material they would be similar to wash and dry as those. The fur liners dry easily and stay fluffy after washing and seem to hold up well. Our set is lined with red fur so I'd put them in the wash with darker colors just in case the color might run. The liners slide back on easily and take literally seconds to replace again.

You can simply wipe down the metal cuffs with an anti-bacterial disinfectant or a toy cleaner spray and they clean up very easily. The metal hasn't rusted or dis-coloured yet but as these aren't high quality stainless steel I wouldn't leave them wet for an extended period.

The handcuffs can be stored in a drawer or box along with your other toys. Of course being faux fur, you will want to keep them away from some of the soft jelly-like vibes and dildos which seem to love to pick up lint and particles from everywhere and act just like dust magnets.

Packaging

The packaging for the cuffs is a simple cardboard box design with a clear plastic window in front to view the cuffs through. Upon opening the box you get the cuffs with the two keys attached on a key chain ring onto the chain which links the two cuffs together. There were no written instructions with the set I purchased (although maybe some versions do have tips and instructions) but it's rather straight forward how to use them anyway.

The packaging is mainly cardboard so it can be recycled, but the packaging itself is too bulky and not really a good storage solution for the cuffs after it's been opened. It's much easier to just add the cuffs to a toy box or drawer than to keep the bulky packaging that they come in.

Personal comments

Playing with simple restraints like these beginner's handcuffs can help open up new areas of pleasure and sensory delights. This set allows you to try out some light BDSM play at a low cost.

Yes, the handcuffs could be constructed to a higher and more durable standard but for the purposes of light bondage play they work well, and if you explore and enjoy the experiences you have with these, you could then move up to leather restraints or other more high-end and better quality BDSM restraints.

Experience

My partner and I have both tried the cuffs and played around with being restrained by them and they've worked well as light constraints. If we get into heavier bondage we'd certainly get stronger or more durable constraints, but for our purposes they have worked well and have added to the fun in the bedroom by enhancing the variety of foreplay we can have. Being constrained and then blindfolded can be a very stimulating experience because you never quite know what is coming next. The mystery adds to the experience and having the feeling that you are constrained and not able to resist as things are being done to you is a stimulating experience for us.
