Take a copy of “Justine” with you.

BDSM has been around much, much longer than Christian Grey (Marquis deSade, anyone?). And there’s a lot more to it than a pair of handcuffs. Plus, you don’t need to be rich to explore the world of BDSM. All you need is a consenting partner, a safeword and a few of these toys.

1) Bed restraints

These restraints are adjustable and durable – so it’s safe to say once your partner is strapped in, they’re not going anywhere. Plus they’re made out of nylon, so you won’t have to fear chafing or irritation. Reviews claim the straps are simple to use and since the inner lining features some sort of padding, “rope burn” is completely nonexistent. They even allow users to choose how tight they want to be restrained – it’s all in the quick adjustment of a strap!

2) Gags

You know what they say, talk is cheap. So if you want more of a high-class experience, just throw them a bone! Like this one, that also works as a gag. Since it’s made from silicone, it’s soft enough to keep your teeth from being damaged but strong enough to outlast even the roughest play.

3) Paddles

Paddles are probably the best tool for BDSM beginners. They’re fun, require zero assembly and only cause as much pain as you intend. Plus, they’re super cute! Just look at this one, fit for the Queen of Hearts.

4) Dog collars

Take a walk on the wild side, just don’t forget your collar and leash! Similar to a fashion choker, dog collars provide a restricted feeling to whomever wears it. But if you’re looking for something more than just a tight grasp around your neck you’ll need to attach the leash. Then you can let your submissive self sit back, relax, and go wherever your wildest desires take you…

5) Vibrators

Great for solo play, vibrators become even more fun when your partner is added to the mix. Use them during foreplay or fornication, their versatility works with you – not against you (unless you’re into that).

6) Nipple clamps

BDSM Amazon

As you probably already know, your nipples are one of the most sensitive places on your body – which is why there’s an entire universe of toys out there dedicated to nipple stimulation. And these best-selling clamps are a perfect example of why. The delicately curved clamps are coated in TPR to prevent pinching and the breakage of skin, while still providing ample pressure.

7) Tape

Similar to ropes and gags, tape can also serve as a restricting toy. But not just any tape! Although duct tape is strong and durable it can also leave some pretty nasty gunk behind, not to mention the pleasure-less pain that comes from removing the adhesive. That’s what makes bondage tape so important, it’s designed to be protective of skin and hair follicles.  And it’s more versatile than most – tape them up, tape their mouth shut or just bound their joints together. How you choose to play is up to you, this tape will just help facilitate it.

Get into the swing of things (literally) with this sex swing! It’ll take your romance to all new heights, while providing stable support to your up-in-the-air plans. Designed with safety in mind, this swing is capable of holding up to 600lbs and can be freely spun in a complete 360-degree motion. Plus, once sexy time is over this sweet little swing can be retired to your relaxing yoga retreat.

9) Blindfolds

BDSM Amazon

This may seem like the least adventurous toy of them all, but that doesn’t mean it’s not worth trying. Blind folds work with sensory depravation, which means by taking away one of your senses any number of others can become heightened. So you may feel, smell, hear or taste things more intensely than before, simply because you can’t see. And since you can’t see, you don’t know what’s coming next which makes the element of surprise even more extreme.

10) Harnesses

BDSM Amazon

Harnesses bring a whole new meaning to the phrase “so good it hurts.” After all, overindulgence and too much of something isn’t always a good thing … or is it? Just strap your vibrator into this harness (or have your partner do it for you) and you can decide for yourself.
