Stylish Restraint - Passionate Wrist Cuffs

For a beginner, or someone who does not want tight cuffs on their wrists, these are great. Also, if you want ankle cuffs, these would definitely work. If you want something a bit easier to use or tighter on your wrists, I'd look elsewhere.

Use

Want to put your partner in a bind? Look no further! These handcuffs are great for a beginner in the BDSM world - I would know, I am one! ;) They are fairly self-explanatory; put them around the wrist or ankle, insert the strap into the buckle, and tighten. If it is difficult to tighten, and still not tight enough, you may need to guide one side of the cuff under the other.





When I used these on my partner's wrists in front of her body, her hands did not slip out once the cuffs were as tight as I could get them. However, it is hard to get them very tight. So, if you want that really snug feeling, you may be disappointed.

Just for fun (that's what we are here for, right?), I tried putting them on myself. This was... a bit of a challenge. I didn't have any luck getting them secured myself, so you'll probably need a friend to help get them on. ;)

Design / Craftsmanship / Material / Size / Fit

The cuffs are stylish and well stitched. I like the red and black contrasting pattern. The exterior material used is shiny but supple - a high quality, synthetic leather.




However, as mentioned above, they are difficult to get tight on the wrists. This is primarily due to the way that they fasten. One side of the cuff tucks under the other. To get it nice and tight, it requires some fiddling and we found that the ideal fit was between two settings. The black chain in the middle is great and seems to be very sturdy.

Performance

The cuffs were not tight enough on my partner's writs. They were not in danger of slipping off, but I wanted them to feel more snug and so did she. When I put them on her ankles, they fit great.

They are fairly thick with padding so they were comfortable for her to wear. The edges were also rounded which helped as well. When the chain is attached (which it usually is), the tension is spread evenly throughout the cuff and does not feel like it's pulling from a single point. The metal links where the chain attaches are solidly built and seem like they would take an unusual amount of repeated force to break. That sucker ain't coming off!
    • Comfortable during use
    • Difficult to put on / use

Packaging

The packaging is very simple - the cuffs sit freely in the box. They are not padded so they were bouncing around a bit. I love that it's frustration free and ready to be worn as soon as I opened the box. =)
