Use

Looking for that first experience of being tied down and teased to the edge over and over? Curious of your lover's reaction to being blindfolded, restrained and pleasured? Here is the perfect place to start at a price that anyone can afford. If you've ever had a bondage fantasy, but aren't really sure how into it you (or your partner) are going to be, it is smartest to start with something basic like this kit. The cuffs are easy enough to wiggle out of, but soft and tough enough to restrain you during a sensual soft first-timers session of bondage. Personally, I am not into the super hardcore BDSM scene on a regular basis, I prefer a lighter version, making this starter kit perfect for me. Add in a few of your other favorite toys, maybe a couple candles, and just throw a kink in your usual sexual routine. A blindfold, cuffs, and perhaps a sexy new outfit could cause endless new sensations to be added into your sex life. Perhaps you will discover a love for bondage, but at the very least you can experience a sensual, sexy new game with your lover.

Design / Craftsmanship / Material / Size / Fit

Sportsheet products are one of my favorite as the quality of the kits they produce is usually very high considering their low price point. As a newbie to bondage, I was looking for a few things in this product. Below are a list of these things and the way this kit met them.

1. I wanted comfortable cuffs. Sportsheets Beginning Bondage kit certainly provided the comfort I wanted. The Velcro close limb straps are made of a soft faux fur that doesn't rub too hard against my ankles or wrists.

2. I wanted something that I would be able to get out of quickly. More traditional BDSM kits have these scary, intimidating fastening systems. As a beginner, that was not only intimidating but pretty freaking scary to think about being stuck, especially if I was at all uncomfortable with what was going down. Velcro closure makes for a quick escape, as well as a quick tie down. Also, if you don't have a ton of privacy where you live, or if you are experimenting outside of your home, a quick escape may be more than a little desirable.

3. I wanted something adjustable. With this product, you tie the knots in the 44" of straps. This allowed a lot of freedom in position and in tightness of the restrained. The Velcro closure on the limb straps is also adjustable. Meaning, if you are really unsure, you can restrain your wrists loosely the first time, allowing you to wiggle them free if you get uncomfortable, or if you want to attack your partner with some moves of your own.

4. I wanted a product that was high enough quality that it would hold up to me using it consistently if I fell in love with bondage, but I wanted something cheap enough that I wouldn't feel like I had wasted money if I hated it. I have had my kit for a little over two years, I have used it as a light bondage kit (which is what it is designed for), and it still looks like new. It doesn't look cheap like some of the more reasonably priced products. However, if you plan to get a little more intense with your bondage fantasy, please read on to the performance section.

5. Finally, I didn't want to be able to see through my blindfold and ruin all the excitement! I was fairly impressed with how well this product managed to block out the light. The soft faux fur in dark black allowed me to really enjoy being blindfolded instead of being able to see out the bottom or the corners like some of the more cheaply made blindfolds.

Performance

The Serious Positives:
1. Sportsheets Beginner's Bondage Fantasy kit is easy to use. No instructions are necessary.
2. It will hold up incredibly well with light use (which is the intention for the product).
3. There is no user size that restricts the use of this product.
4. A relativity quick set up process means you can pull this baby out at any time of the day.
5. The cuffs roll up nicely for discreet and simple storage, taking up minimal space.
6. 44" of length and comfy faux fur material with Velcro closure makes for a comfortable and safe fit.

The Great-Most-of-the-Time Features:
1. You tie your knots, therefore you are in control of tightness and positioning. Why this is sometimes a bummer: if you don't tie good knots, you're gonna be bummed, and if you don't have something to tie onto, you are also going to be bummed.
2. It's easy to get in and out of the restraints. Great if you want to get out. Not so great if you wiggle out in pleasure on accident.

The Drawbacks:
1. If you get too hot and heavy, really pulling and straining against your own knots, they are going to get really tight. Meaning, good luck getting them untied. This product isn't designed for you to really struggle and yank against it.
2. If you don't have bed posts, you might be needing to invest in extra rope, a new creative idea (like a chair!), or a different toy. This kit is really best suited to be used in a bed with bedposts. However, there are ways around this little problem. I have extra rope tied to the frame of my bed and I just keep this there, tied, ready for use. The ropes aren't even seen as I store them between the mattress and box spring of my bed. Before I thought up this nifty trick, I used this kit to be tied to a chair or other creative places.
    • Comfortable during use
    • Easy to put on / use
    • Holds up to use well

Care and Maintenance

No mess involved in this toy. Storage is simple, and care is simpler. Just roll up your cuffs and store for next use. Consider getting a cute little bag and pairing up your cuffs and blindfold with a few other favorite toys, a feather tickler, a sexy outfit, and maybe a good CD and you will have a travel kit ready for whenever the mood to be a little naughty strikes you!
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store

Packaging

Sportsheets products generally arrive in plastic packaging, and this kit is no exception. The packaging pictures a girl tied up to a chair, which may give you a few outside-of-the-bedroom ideas for your new kit! However, the packaging is not much more useful, so I'd just recycle it and pick up a cute little bag for storage.

Personal comments

I suggest this product to anyone who has ever had the tiniest fantasy about bondage. This is a sensational place to start experimenting, and it can be an incredible sensual experience for you and your lover that can add a fresh spark. Plus, ladies, you know your man would love if you brought this home as a new toy. Who doesn't want their lover all tied up and ready for lavish attention?

Experience

All positives from this user and her partner. We both love the sensual and sexy addition to our toy box.
Follow-up commentary
This beginner kit is still holding up to all the use it gets. It's perfect for fulfilling my light bondage fantasies. I am so in love with how awesome it is!

Over the time that I have owned it, I have come up with all sorts of different ideas on how to make it better. I think that my favorite modification is keeping extra rope in the little storage bag I bought for it. It's very discrete and can travel with me.

One time, my man surprised me with a vacation and was able to grab the bag I store this in (extra rope and all) and have it all set up in the bedroom at the beach. It made for quite the surprise and quite the evening! I guess that this would be my greatest suggestion; get a bag, get some extra rope so your man doesn't have to think through grabbing some, and have an amazing vacation like I did.
