Sex and Mischief adjustable handcuffs by Sportsheets - review by TJtheMadHatter

  • Christmas shipping schedule

Top drawer of the nightstand material!

I like these cuffs. They're really easy and quick to put on. Though they're not much to look at, the black is very gender friendly. These are great cuffs because of how fast I can put them on my partner and I use them quite a bit. I would recommend these to anyone looking to start out in BDSM.

Use

If you're wanting to try bondage, this is a great place to start. With its soft cuffs, nylon straps, and the fact that they're easy to escape from, it's a safe way to try something new. If you're a more-advanced BDSM player, I would go for something more heavy-duty. Though, because of the lack of metal, they won't set off any metal detectors! I love that I can take them anywhere and don't have to explain gouges in a headboard.

Design / Craftsmanship / Material / Size / Fit

While they're not the most awe-inspiring cuffs, they are very comfortable and soft. I found them to be very sturdy. What really made me happy about them was that they fit! I have rather large wrists and finding something to fit them is not an easy task. As to the sturdiness of the adjustable handcuffs, I did a stress test by putting one foot into one cuff and pulled as hard I could. They held up with ease. The strap does have some flex to it, but very little. I do not suggest suspending someone by them.

The polyester cuffs: 9" length, 2" width.
The velcro on the cuffs: 1" width.
The nylon/plastic strap with buckle: 19" length, 1" width.

Performance

They worked great! The cuffs were large enough for my husband's wrists, and he felt comfortable wearing them. Knowing that he could easily get out of them kept him at ease. The strap did no damage to our headboard (it's wood), and since the strap isn't very long, his arms were held in a comfortable position. They can be used without a headboard, by just holding the strap above your partner's head. Though we didn't use it for ankle cuffs, we did find that they would fit, snugly.
    • Comfortable during use
    • Easy to put on / use
    • Holds up to use well

Care and Maintenance

Hand wash or simple machine wash, hang dry. Since it's not big or bulky, these adjustable cuffs are very easy to store. I keep mine rolled up and in a mesh bag, with my blindfold.

Packaging

The box had a black and white photo of a woman in sexy lingerie sporting the cuffs. Very PG-13, no provocative poses or nudity. The back has very little info on the back, but I chalked it up to the fact that the cuffs are rather self-explanatory. The box is rather large for the size of the product. The product comes in a sealed plastic bag.

Personal comments

When I first started to look at restraints to try in the bedroom, these caught my attention first. I was looking for something rather specific. The cuffs needed to be big enough with a little bit of extra room (as I have large wrists), I didn't want anything that would damage my headboard (it's wood), and the price. These cuffs hit all of those markers. I had to have them. They're great to keep in the nightstand, since they're very quick to put on.

Experience

When I brought them out to my husband, he was rather wary. He didn't like the idea of being restrained by me. When I showed him that he could get out of them while in use, he relaxed. I did use them with other things (blindfold, Wartenberg wheel, vibrator) and he didn't budge. It wasn't until I was on top, and he wanted to participate, that he "escaped". These are more of a suggestive form of bondage. They're a great stepping stone for more intense bondage, since it's all about trust.
Follow-up commentary
I still like these cuffs. We don't use them as much anymore because I'm not a fan of my husband being able to escape. He likes them because he can. It's a nice middle ground for us when we're in a playful mood. So, they still have their place in the top drawer of my nightstand.
