Bondage Toys

Most couples will delve into the world of bondage (BDSM) even if it’s a small as a blindfold or simple handcuffs. The truth is Bondage play can be very kinky (its limits are completely up to you) but also quite romantic and sensual as well. However, if you are a novice then some parts of the bondage language will be completely foreign to you – which is very common. Some names of bondage toys associated in the Bondage category can take quite a bit to grasp the concept of what it is and what it is you actually do with it. But once you get the hang of it the simple act of being restrained and giving your lover the power offers a new physical experience and a much tighter feel of trust and closeness to you both.

Ball gags

Ball gags are designed to mute the voice of your partner making them submit to you and give you complete control. They can come in an array of styles – mouth hook gags, bit gags, hollow gags and solid ball gags. Ball gags should in no way obstruct on the wearers breathing as its strapped over or around the head and the “ball” part sits inside the lips/teeth. Due to not allowing the wearer to talk communication needs to become more creative so the partner has a better understanding of their partners requirements. (also an idea to have a form of hand signal to let the other person know if you require the gag removed at any point during play) Ball gags will muffle the moans of pleasure and is great for beginners through to the more advanced Bondage enthusiasts.

Blindfolds, & hoods

Blindfolds allow you to remove the sense of sight which in return heightens every other sense – particularly touch! They are available in a array of colours and materials from satin, silk, leather and fur. A blindfold creates a sense of mystery and the wearer who might be a little more coy is highly likely to feel less self conscious about experimenting with their sight hidden allowing you to explore more is fantasies and role play.

Hoods (a more intermediate bondage accessory) covers a little more than your standard blindfold – they tend to cover half the head, the face or all of it. They can have open eyes, nose or mouths and be made from materials like lace, spandex and leather. The purpose of the hood is to change the appearance of the wearer and for more sensory deprivation which in return increases the  sense of anticipation for sexual contact which heightens mental arousal.

Paddles, whips and crops

These are as fun as they sound. Whether it’s a slap or a tickle there’s definitely one to suit absolutely anyone and everyone. They can be made from an array of materials including: PVC, wood, leather and maybe with an added bit of fur in the mix as well as an array of sizes and shapes. Once you experience one you will want to very quickly add to your collection. Whips will tease and tickle your most sensitive areas. Whether it’s a flick or a glide over the skin you will gasp for more. Paddles offer a more audible “thwack” on the skin (hence why it’s used on those more fleshy areas of the body), that noise coming from a paddle offers a sensory play stimulation and accentuates the experience of being spanked.

Crops offer a more sharper sting. It’s worthwhile starting softer and gradually building up to avoid any unnecessary harm to your bed buddy. So whether you’re playing master or servant or just want to see your partner shiver in anticipation and satisfaction, you are sure to awaken all the nerve endings and give that ultimate adrenaline rush in your spanking. The anticipation alone has us quivering!

Collars & Leashes

Delve into your deepest BDSM fantasies by allowing your partner take complete control of you (or over you) with a collar and leash. Submit to their demands. There is a huge selection of luxurious collars available – from plain, supple leather, PVC, Spiked, Jewelled, coloured and furry. Most will have an O-ring at the front that allows the connection for a leash, rope, and harnesses to be attached to them. They are the ultimate accessory that aren’t just worn in the bedroom but can very easily be worn out and about. A collar worn on its own can also be a symbol of ownership (consensual of course) but if you are anything like us they are a “cute” accessory also. Collars offer a more deeper intimacy with your partner  as you both explore the ventures of power play.

Ropes & Restraints

The fun stuff! I don’t think I’ve ever crossed paths with anyone who didn’t get a thrill from either being restrained or being the restrainer. A simple handcuff is truly a necessary part of every bondage toy collection! Simple to use and ultra sexy, the range of handcuffs is endless. Choose from – satin and lace, heavy duty metal, fluffy and furry, leather and faux leather. Ones with buckles and locks, Velcro and easy release. There are so many different variations when it comes to restraints/handcuffs that the possibilities are never ending. There’s standard wrist cuffs, ankle cuffs, bed restraints, under the bed restraints (our top seller), hogties cuff sets, and ones you can add rope through. The first step (and the hardest if you ask us) which one do you start with first!?

Rope is a specially designed item that is aimed for people who find enjoyment in getting tied up. Bondage tape is also another alternative that is self adhesive, and skin-safe. Rope should NEVER be substituted for the ropes that can be found in your DIY stores. These ropes will be much harder and harsher against the skin and can very easily cause harm. The rope you will find at Naughty But Nice online is specifically designed to be soft on the skin and flexible enough to tie intricate knots into. Who knew a simple knot could be so sensual!?

Nipple clamps

Nipples are one of the most sensitive part of your body (for both men and woman!) and due to this is also one of the most responsive. Your nipples are full of nerve endings that react almost instantly to any stimulation (we’ve all experienced that hard nipple feel in the cold…).  this can create an increase in pleasure which can lead to more powerful orgasms.

You could try nipple suckers to keep them hard and erect, clamps that clasp on the sensitive nipple area (some with jewels, beads or chains), ones that vibrate and can double as a clitoral stimulator as well (double the fun!) and just go a plain stainless steel style that you can heat up in boiling water and freeze for more intense sensory play.

Trust, communication and play

Trust and communication is key when delving into the world of BDSM. You are surrendering your control to your partner. So it is highly recommended to have a safety word – you might ask yourself why do I need a safety word, is it really that scary? Well this tells both parties that there is complete trust whatever scenario you get into.

Well we have a safety word in sex in general – which is “no” but during bondage play no can be sometimes be a part of the “playtime” so if you have a word like “purple” or “Pineapple” then things are more likely to stop immediately. Bondage play building a relationship around trust, you’re giving yourself to your partner – this is not just about “sensations” – it can actually be really romantic.
