Pretty but Not Practical

The Black Rose Rosie Restraints by Doc Johnson are pretty but didn't work well as a restraint for us. The sash is too long. You'll need to run it through the bars of a headboard or similar item if you want to actually restrain the wearer. The distance between the restraints is large so without running it through the bars of a headboard the wearer can move about freely, almost as if they aren't wearing restraints at all. They are pretty but not practical.

extremely useful review
The Black Rose Rosie Restraints by Doc Johnson are packaged in an attractive cardboard box. The front of the box has a photo of a unclothed female wearing the restraints and states the product name. The back of the packaging has a brief product description, states a few product features, and the company name and website. The box can be used for storing the restraints but it’s rather large compared to the actual product inside. The packaging can be recycled.

Inside the cardboard box, the restraints are wrapped around a thin piece of cardboard and inside of a plastic bag. When you take the restraint out of the packaging, it just looks like a long sash of material with a small rose at the centre. There are no directions included to explain how to loop the material to turn the sash into restraints.

IMG

The sash is purple and the rose at the centre of the sash is black. The product page lists the material as silk but that’s not what it is. Even the product packaging says that they are silk (how deceiving!). The company website lists the material as a “silky fabric” and a “leather like” material. So basically all this means is that it’s not silk but it’s soft like silk and the rose is faux leather. Not a huge deal to me but this may be a deal breaker for others.

The sash is 34 inches long and just less than 2 ¼ inches wide. The rose at the centre of the sash has a diameter of just less than 1 inch and is 7/8 of an inch in height. There are loops of fabric at each end of the sash. The loops are 2 ½ inches long. These loops are what you use to run the material through to create the restraints.

Since the product didn’t come with any instructions on how to use them, I’m going to try and explain it the best I can for you. It’s actually quite easy but I’m still surprised that the company didn’t include any directions. I’ll explain two different ways of turning the sash into a restraint.

First Way:

1. Take the end of the sash on the left hand side and run it through the loop on the right hand side (it doesn’t matter if you run it upwards or downwards through this loop).
2. Continue to pull the end of the sash through this loop until the loops has passed the halfway point (where the rose sits).
3. Now it’s time to do the other side. Take the loop on the right hand side of the sash and run the left hand side through it.
4. Pull the left hand side through this loop until the loop is past the half way point (where the rose sits).
5. …and now you have restraints.

Second Way:

1. Pinch the material on the left hand side of the rose.
2. Run this material through the loop on the left hand side of the sash.
3. Repeat this process on the right hand side.
4. …and now you have restraints.

IMG

It really doesn’t matter which way you loop the material. The only difference is that the second method looks knotted. Either way, you’ll have adjustable restraints. Since the restraints are adjustable, they will fit any size of wrist or ankle.

The problem that I found with the restraints is that because the sash is so long, the wearer’s arms (or legs) have a lot of space between them for movement. If you have a barred headboard, you could run the sash through the bars to prevent this. Unfortunately, we don’t have a headboard at all.

The material may not be silk but it’s very soft against the skin. The sash is a double layer of material and the stitching is nicely done with no loose threads. The restraints can hold up well to resistance (tugging, pulling, etc). The rose at the centre of the sash is sewn on well but after inspecting it a bit more, it seems to only be sewn around the edges. This means that you could detach the rose from the sash with a seam ripper if you don’t like it.
Experience
...continued


The sash can be hand washed and hung to dry. I’m unsure of the exact material but I would use a gentle soap when washing the restraint just to be safe.

Overall, it’s a cute, inexpensive product but it doesn’t really work for my partner and I. If we had a headboard to run the sash through, it may have been a bit different. The distance between the restraints (so between the wrists or ankles) is far too large. The restraints would be good for beginners because they’re comfortable, inexpensive, non-intimidating, and only slightly restrain the wearer because of how long the sash is.
Follow-up commentary
I wrote the original review not long ago but I'm following up because I am actually going to be giving these to a friend. I'm hoping she'll find use for it. The restraints didn't really restrain at all for us, which makes them pointless.

I realize that the text on the photos is very small. The video I added has me doing both methods of instruction.
