What's your fantasy?

I recommend the fantasy kit for anyone who is curious about bondage but doesn't really know what exactly it is that they want to do with it. This kit gives you a lot of different options and combinations of restraints to work with. It's also comfortable which is a nice way to try out restraints without being turned off by scratchy or hard cuffs.

extremely useful review
I found this set to be a great starter set for someone who's interested in a bit of bondage play and really isn't sure what exactly they're looking for. When setting out and trying this set we knew that we wanted some restraints but weren't really sure if cuffs or tethers would really be our thing. We had dabbled in bondage play before with some bondage ties, but those proved a bit too easy to get out of and therefore weren't really sufficient for giving the experience that we were looking for.

This set comes with two tethers with a clasp on each end of each tether, a leather blindfold and then two sets of cuffs. Each set of cuffs was the same size, so while you can use them for ankles and wrists there's no distinction between the two. The set is well constructed and can hold up to a lot of force against it and still remain extremely comfortable to wear. The set I got was the black and purple set. The purple is dark yet bright and really stands out against the black. Each piece is labeled with the sports sheet logo but is otherwise free of decoration, which we really liked. I wanted something simple that wouldn't really stand out in our room.

Only the blindfold is leather, which was nice because I'm not a big fan of leather. The blindfold doesn't have any smell to it either. While that's a pro for me, it might be a con for some. The blindfold works very well by blocking you from seeing any light at all. It's thick enough that no light seeps in through the blindfold which was excellent for eliminating the sense of sight all together while using this blindfold. It was extremely comfortable to wear too, I like that it's shaped so well, it allows it to just cover the eyes and not much of the bridge of the nose at all, unlike a sleep mask.

The rest of the pieces are made from nylon and stretchy padded foam for comfort inside the cuffs. The cuffs have a long strip of heavy duty velcro on them that secures them extremely well. No matter how I pulled on them they would not come loose. The cuffs will fit a wide range of sizes since the padded area is pretty large. Even if you needed it larger than the padded area you could still close it with the velcro, it just might not be as comfortable in the spot that had velcro touching the skin. Each cuff has a ring attached to it and then one cuff from each set has a clasp. I don't know what this style of clasp is called, but it's the same type that they put on dog leashes, these stay together very well but are also easy to get off when it's time.

I think the easiest way to take care of this set would be to hand wash the pieces. I think that the tethers and cuffs could withstand going through the washing machine, but I'd wash them alone so that fibers don't get stuck in the velcro and also I'd use the machine on the delicate cycle. I can't see these items getting so dirty that a hand washing wouldn't get them clean though and I think that's probably the safest bet and that's what I'll be using to clean them.
Experience
We found a lot of uses for each piece in the set but we would have liked if there were more tethers just based on how we ended up using it. We decided it would work best for us if we could put the tether under our mattress and then attach a cuff to each end. This didn't work out for us since we have a king sized bed and a thick mattress. When we took each tether and adjusted it to its longest length we could clasp the two together and that would cover the span of our bed, but it did not also give the slack to handle the thickness of the mattress and allow us to cuff me to each end. If you have a queen sized or lower I think it would work out fine like that.

What we ended up doing instead was securing a tether to each side of our headboard and then clipping a cuff to each side. The tethers were easily secured with the clasp on each side getting clipped around the tether itself. It was then easy for my husband to tighten the tether until my arms were spread wide and I was held in place. I like the idea of being restrained but I like knowing that I CAN get out if I really have to. With these I could not get out of the cuffs themselves but I was able to reach back and fiddle with the tether until I could loosen it and once I did that with both sides I could bring my arms into the center and release myself. Once again..this was a good thing for us but others might not like that ability.

This was when another set of tethers would have come in handy. I would have liked to have another set to attach to the foot board so that we could have restrained my legs, putting me in a spread eagle position. As it was, we ended up just cuffing my ankles and putting them behind my husband's neck while he thrust into me. Still fun, still hot and sexy, but we would still like to have the option of restraining the ankles so we might need to go out and buy another set of tethers.

You can also do many other positions and types of restraints with this set. The ones I detailed above were only the ones that we personally wanted these for. You can hook all the cuffs together to create a hogtie positions (and you can use the tethers to allow for added comfort if you're not flexible enough to reach with just the cuffs alone) and you can put two cuffs together to create a collar. That's not really our thing but I did try it just to see how well it works and it worked well and was pretty comfortable. Really the possibilities are just about endless with the set. You're only limited by your imagination...ok and possibly by only having two tethers instead of four!
