Handcuffs PDF Print E-mail

HANDCUFFS: Narrow metal cuffs with a pivoting hinge and a ratcheted locking mechanism, connected to each other by a short length of chain and often used to restrain people's wrists together. Commonly used by law enforcement and security personnel.

 

Commentary: Handcuffs are not always safe to use in BDSM scenarios, particularly if resistance play is involved, as their narrowness and hardness can cause injury to the wrist if the restrained person pulls or struggles against them.

HOGTIE; also, HOG TIE: A bondage technique in which the bound person's ankles and wrists are bound together, usually behind the back; then the ankles are bound to the wrists wile the person lies on his or her stomach. Also, verb to tie in a hogtie.

 

The hogtie is a bondage position involving the tying of a person's wrists and ankles together behind their back using some form of physical restraints, such as rope or cuffs.

Some people derive erotic pleasure from the hogtie itself, by seeing a person in a prone submissive position; but more commonly the hogtie is used as part of a BDSM sexual bondage play, and in association with other bondage equipment.

Typically, hogtie bondage involves putting a person who is laying face down into some form of physical restraints, with ankles and wrists bound together behind the back. In BDSM play, however, a hogtie is any position that results in the arms and legs being bound behind the person.

 

The hogtie is a bondage position involving the tying of all the four limbs together. It differs from a balltie, which involves tying the limbs together in front of the person. They both differ from the spread eagle tie, which seeks to fully separate the arms and legs. Otherwise, the objective of these ties are the same, which is to immobilise the limbs and to render the tied person accessible and vulnerable to a range of sexual play, such as erotic massage or tickling, or sexual stimulation. The ability of the tied person to interfere with play is severely limited especially from the front. As with all bondage plays, the free partner is regarded as being in the dominant or controlling position, while the tied partner is regarded as being sexually submissive, though in some plays the tied partner may control the situation verbally.

 

Many feel the only proper way for a person to be hogtied is with bare feet, as the upward facing soles show vulnerability, subservience and sexuality. The hogtie is especially suited to tickling plays as the bare feet are exposed and easily accessible to the free partner. Though the person may be fully or partly clothed, as can be the case in strict bondage not involving BDSM activities, it is often preferred that they are nude.

A variation of the hogtie is the open hogtie, which is a form of frogtie on front position, when corresponding wrists and ankles are tied together, leaving the buttocks and anus exposed for sexual play, such as erotic spanking.

 

 
Hood PDF Print E-mail

HOOD: Any covering designed to go over the head, often partly or completely covering the face as well.

A bondage hood (also called a gimp mask or bondage mask) is a fetishistic hood. It may be made from rubber, latex, spandex,  or leather.

Bondage hoods are most notably used in BDSM, their function being to objectify the wearer as well as providing sensory deprivation, and thus reduce them to the status of a sexual toy, rather than a sexual partner, as part of a scene. A rigid, tight-fitting hood (which typically means leather or latex) greatly reduces a gagged person's ability to make any noise at all.

A hood can also serve the function of disguising someone's identity when desired, for example at play parties.
