Kink: The Beta Version

These cuffs are perfect for anyone who is looking to add a new dynamic to their sex life by exploring the world of BDSM. The softness, ease of use, and price tag will certainly appeal to anyone who is a bit wary of bondage play- and the no guilt factor makes it easy to upgrade if you find these aren't sturdy enough for you. But, if you are at all seasoned in your bondage play, skip these and look for a sturdier version. They definitely won't satisfy the more advanced user.

Use

Let me begin by saying that I've had these wrist cuffs for probably two years now. Since then, my man and I have definitely gotten much more serious in our bondage play, and these plush cuffs just can't seem to keep up- although they have managed to stay intact. If you are at all advanced in bondage, pass these up and spend a bit more on some sturdy cuffs that will allow for more vigorous BDSM play. Those who are somewhere in the middle also may want to skip on these simply because they don't allow for too much "growing room," if you will. But, if you're looking to add a little spark to your sex life and haven't tried bondage yet, these should be just right for you. They will allow for you and your partner to play out restraint fantasies, but are easy enough to escape from if you decide you'd rather be in control. They're cute, comfy, and won't make your wallet scream in agony.

Design / Craftsmanship / Material / Size / Fit

The Pink Plush Wrist Cuffs are leather, lined with faux fur and accented with metal grommets, buckles, and come with a detachable chain that connects the two cuffs. The connector chain is approximately 5.5 inches long, measured from clip to clip. The D-rings attached to the cuffs are both about .75 inches at their fullest point, so you'll have about 7 inches total of "roaming space" between wrists. The actual cuffs themselves are approximately 7.5 inches long, and have a thin strap that runs along the center with 5 holes which range from approximately the 7.25 inch mark on the cuffs to 10.5 inches in length. The holes are spaced approximately .75 inches apart, but if you find that your wrist is somewhere in limbo, you can easily poke through the leather with a punch, (or any other sharp tool of your choosing) and make your own hole.

These may not be suited for everyone on the BDSM spectrum, but they definitely are comfortable- which is less intimidating for a beginner. No irritated wrists to worry about, which could easily deter a bondage newbie.

The cuffs have little scent to speak of, which can be considered a good OR bad thing, depending on whether you like the scent of leather or not. If you find the scent of leather to be a big turn-on in your bondage play, then I would suggest looking for restraints that will satisfy that need.

I'm honestly not sure what the average woman's wrist size is, but I have fairly small wrists and set these on the third of five holes. I can't imagine that someone with a large frame would be able to fit comfortably into these, and they certainly aren't meant for using on your average man. After all, they are pink and fluffy- so they aren't geared toward most men- but, if you are a man that likes them and can fit into them, by all means- go for it!

Performance

When I bought these, I was looking for cute, comfortable restraints. They certainly perform the task at hand, (or wrist, in this case..) so I'm not disappointed at all in their performance. After about two years of on and off use, they are still mostly intact, so I am pretty impressed in that regard. A little bit of the fur lining has come unglued from the leather, and there are wear marks around the holes that I keep the buckle set to, but that is to be expected.

In my case, they are just a bit too easy to break free from, as I like to be fairly well restrained. I tend to wriggle and squirm, (largely due to my man tickling me when I'm tied up!) so I found myself sliding out of these rather often. One of the clasps on the connector chain has bent upwards and will no longer stay closed from vigorous use, so they get detached from the chain often. If you tend to pull on your restraints at all, you will likely have the same problem and either be looking to buy a new connector chain, some tethers, or perhaps new cuffs. Since the chain has broken, my man and I simply tied what we use as makeshift tethers (they used to be fabric belts for a couple of pairs of shorts I owned, but realized they were more useful for getting tied up!) to the metal D-ring on the cuffs. This method doesn't allow for them to be cuffed together, but they can still be used as restraints.

With that said, these perform beautifully for those who are unsure about BDSM and want to ease their way into it. They are very stylish and comfortable, so no intimidation factor to worry about here. They are probably best suited as a prop in role playing, or for very light bondage play- where the submissive doesn't try to break free from the restraints. In some cases, the act of trying to break free without the actual freedom in the end can be part of the fun of bondage play, but if you don't actually want to break free, you may be a bit disappointed in these cuffs.
    • Comfortable during use
    • Easy to escape from
    • Not for moderate-heavy bdsm play

Care and Maintenance

While I haven't personally washed my cuffs, they can be cleaned very easily. If you have to clean up the leather, simply wipe it down with some soap and warm water. If you have to clean anything out of the faux fur, I would suggest applying some warm water and soap, or even mild laundry detergent, and then scrubbing the area in question with a wash cloth. Simply allow the cuffs to air dry and they should clean up rather nice. Mine haven't gotten all that dirty aside from a couple of dark spots on the faux fur, so that's why I haven't bothered to wash them.

Obviously there is no need to take special care in storing these, but I would recommend put them somewhere out of sight if you don't want anyone to make comments on them- because who can resist saying something when they see pink furry handcuffs? Certainly not any of my friends...

Personal comments

Here are a few pictures of my cuffs. Keep in mind, this is after about 2 years of on and off usage, so they aren't perfect.










Experience

My man has slowly (well.. not really.. only been a couple of years!) lead me over to the dark side, and these are just a bit too fluffy to come with us. But, I'm not disappointed in the purchase we made two years ago, as we've definitely gotten our fair share of use out of them- especially for the price. They definitely turned me on to the idea of bondage when I was exponentially more vanilla than I am now.
