This post will not appeal to everyone.
Indeed it may not appeal to many.
Perhaps only to those with a desire – mildly inquisitive or burning – to learn a little about this faded Dominant’s art. In my last post I suggested I might reveal the contents of my famous black briefcase – or at least of its far more nondescript successor. And so it shall be. For the squeamish it might be, as they say, time to look away now.
I will start with the ‘bindings’
Four hand-crafted black leather cuffs for ankles and wrists.
They were hand-made by a man who usually crafts his wares for the gay community, but made these to the measurements I provided for him based upon Rebecca. Somewhat smaller than his usual products, they have sturdy buckles and useful D rings which can be used with ropes, or the connectors described further below.
A collar, from the same source.
It has a detachable chain leash with a leather loop – which can be used as in impromptu whip.
Various lengths of thin rope
The ends were carefully taped at some stage by Jenny to stop the strands from fraying.
A spreader bar
Home made by me in a rare venture into handicrafts. Constructed from wood with various steel eyes to allow connections to cuffs, ropes etc in a variety of creative ways.
A leather blindfold
A velcro fastening makes for an easy but secure fitting
A length of black velvet
Also used as a blindfold, but the sensual feel of the material allows for pleasure too.
An over-door suspension strap
An ingenious device that can be fitted over the top of a door. Once the door is secured it provides a ring at almost ceiling height as a point to connect to. The context is best explained here.
Half a dozen steel clips and connectors
Unromantic fixings which allow all of the elements above to be connected together
A ball gag
I hardly ever use it – I would rather hear the sounds of pleasure and pain. But sometimes….
And now she is secure. I will unpack the instruments of pain …
