There are certain rules and principles that all devoted bondage enthusiasts
stick to. Little known rules that are never mentioned, but both participants
go by. An experienced bondage fan knows how far he can go with their slave
without harm and knows what NOT to do and for how long a person can be
kept tied in different items. It is imperative that a beginner also know,
so that he or she does not do harm - either inflicting or receiving.
Hold it! Yes, I know. Some of you old timers at bondage are saying, "We've had overnight sessions." Yes, I agree! But, if a person is to be tied down overnight the way it should start is thus: Subject tied up good at first, gags and all. Pretend he or she will have to spend the night this way. (Don't leave the room!) Before retiring take blindfold and gag off slave. NEVER, EVER leave a gag on overnight. An hour is the maximum a gag should be kept on ANYONE. Leaving a blindfold on overnight is really up to both parties. I'd like to hear comments on that! I personally think that it a blindfold is put on, it should be done loosely so that after you leave, slave can wiggle it off.
Now, for overnight subjects, legs should NOT be forced up behind them
or to any position that would cause cramping after a while. Legs should
be tied straight out, either to bedposts or whatever. Hands should not
be tied behind the back for the whole night. They should be positioned
at the sides or cuffed together at wrists. Our hasp cuffs are good for
this as they lock. A rope, chain or strap should lead from the wrist cuffs
to the foot of the bed so the subject cannot lift their arms upward. Bed
straps should be put around upper torso to guarantee slave can't get off
the bed or bend. Some devotees would use a locking neck strap attached
to the front of the bed, leaving the feet secured and top of the body
so he has no way of reaching top or bottom. This is debatable (using neck
strap) as you want to take all precautions that your slave will not hurt
himself the 8 or so hours he is tied alone. An overnighter should be made
as comfortable as possible. No matter how comfortable you tie him, he
will still be sore in the morning. Spike heeled shoes or boots tied on
to feet will be just enough to make him uncomfortable but not painful.
A couple of rubber or leather straps around shoulders and arms should
These are only a few of the basic precautions, use your common sense
of safety when trying something or someone new to you.
