When it comes to bondage, rope is one of the first things many of us try on those early kinky forays before getting hooked. It’s easy to come by, everyone can tie a basic granny knot and it’s satisfyingly effective. From these humble beginnings, with a little time, patience, dedication one can explore the amazing art of Shibari – the ancient Japanese technique of rope bondage. Part art form, part fetish, a medium for the skilled to display their knot work and constrain their subject in strict bondage.
One of the first things you learn when first attempting some basic Shibari knots, is you need a lot of rope. A lot of long pieces of rope. Our early bondage attempts revolved around four 2m lengths to tie one another down spread eagled on the bed. Such lengths simply won’t get your far with Shibari, where you often need lengths of at least 10m. Which is exactly where this Pipedream Fetish Fantasy Japanese silk rope comes in. Submitted for review by ÜberKinky and aimed squarely at beginners, (from a presentation point of view), it’s a box with a 10.5m length of black silk rope inside, 8mm thick (that’s 35′ long, 1/4″ thick for you old school readers). Perfect to get you started. But where do you start? Unfortunately no helpful guides are included with this Pipedream rope. However you can find a great Rope Bondage Guide over at ÜberKinky with some great first knots to try and some important safety advice.

I’m not even going to talk about the Fifty Shades of Grey novels that this item is based upon. If you’ve no idea what they’re about, never caught any of the media storm that surrounded them, never had one fall out of your packet of Special K flakes, or even stumbled upon any of the multitude of authors trying to mimic E L James’ fame and more specifically her fortune, then I salute you! But I do question how you found this website.
As with any successful piece of media, it’s the brand that really carries the marketing clout, everything from the movie spin offs to the themed toys. It is these latter items that are the focus of todays review. Here we have a Beginners Bondage Kit, inspired by Fifty Shades of Grey and officially endorsed by E L James.

There are a few under bed bondage restraint kits available on the market. They are popular as they give you something to attach your submissive’s cuffs to when you are lacking strong anchor points. Handy if you don’t have a metal frame bed, can’t install wall hooks or staying away in a hotel where they rarely have a proper head board. In all instances, these are an effective and cheap solution to some great bondage scenes.
This under bed kit is very simple, comprising of just two lengths of webbing that cross under the mattress and come up at the corners to restrain your submissive in a spread eagle position. Construction is very quick and easy, and the parts required can be picked up cheaply at a local haberdashery, hardware store or online. I found these items very cheap, in bulk from some ebay sellers.

When it comes to bondage, restraint is key. Tying up your submissive to prevent them using certain limbs or stop their whole body from moving, rendering them completely helpless and putting them at the mercy of your desires.
The basis of any good bondage is a set of cuffs to tie your submissives’ wrists and ankles together. Just tying their hands behind their back can change your submissives’ perspective completely and plant them firmly in the head space for a BDSM scene.
This howto guide will show you how to make your own quick and easy restraints from very cheap materials. Although basic, they are surprisingly effective and comfortable long periods.
