Review: Bondage Boutique Beginners Soft Ankle Cuffs for Lovehoney

OK, so I was sent these Bondage Boutique Beginners Soft Ankle Cuffs recently by Lovehoney (in exchange for this review) and, well, they’re not at all bad.

Ankle-1

I’m always a little sceptical about toys, particularly BDSM products, on the lower end of the market, but I thought I’d give these ones the old college try as I enjoyed reviewing the Dominix Deluxe Adjustable Spreader Bar recently and quite liked the idea of being tied down again.  And they’re not bad! They’re the cheapest in the Bondage Boutique range, but for their purpose (for introducing a partner to bondage) they’d be just fine.

Ankle-2

For instance, the plastic that the lobster clasps are made from is quite weak. I haven’t tested them to breaking point, but I know I could easily break them if I wanted to. Now you may be thinking “why would I want anything so flimsy?” but if you’re a beginner then this might be exactly what you want. If it’s your (or your partner’s) first time being tied down, it might be nice to know you can safely and easily break out if you need to, without relying on your partner. So, under those circumstances, you may not want stronger ankle cuffs, with steel clasps.

The cuffs themselves are synthetic and have a nice padded feel. I was a little worried that these cheaper cuffs would be uncomfortable, but they feel great.  To be honest, once they’re tightly on, they feel just as comfortable as some of the more expensive leather cuffs I own.

Using them is easy.  The clasps can be easily attached to a spreader bar, hog-tie & many other bondage restraints.  Attaching them to your ankles is easy too, and quick, as they’re fastened with Velcro.  Now you might think that Velcro is the kind of stuff used by pensioners to fasten their trainers, but it’s good stuff! It’s unbelievably strong and very quick.  Although buckles look awesome on cuffs, Velcro is a lot easier to use, so it’s up to you if looks of function are your top priority.

Ankle-4

Other than that, there’s not much else to say.  I was expecting these to be average, but I was impressed.  I’ hesitant to recommend some items like this unless the user is unsure as they can need upgrading quite quickly.  It’s often that the best course of action, if you think you might like them, is to buy something more expensive, that will last you.  These cuffs aren’t like that, though  They’re not just cuffs to use a couple of times before needing to upgrade.  You could feasibly buy these and not need to upgrade at all. Unless you decide that you do indeed like to struggle, in which case by something with stronger clasps!

You can pick up the Bondage Boutique Beginners Soft Ankle Cuffs here from Lovehoney for £9.99.  Thanks again Lovehoney for sending them to me!
