Beginner Kits for Under $50 – Beginner Bondage Restraints

If you’ve ever looked online for bondage equipment, you’re probably aware that you can easily spend three figures when it comes to building up your toy and tool collection. Even the basic kits that include things like rope restraints, gags and other BDSM gear can cost $70 and up. So what if you’re building up your bondage collection on a budget? Here are four basic bondage tools you can get that will cost you less than $50. Sure, you may want to get a few more pieces as time goes on, but with these four you can have a very satisfactory bondage session!

Bondage Tape – price range $11 to $15

You may look at this and think, “Eleven bucks for tape? Why not just use duct tape?” Some experienced Dominants and submissives do, once they understand the mechanics of using it. For beginners, tape made specifically for use on human skin, like the Sex & Mischief Bondage Tape is a much safer alternative. Most bondage tape doesn’t actually have any adhesive and uses the qualities of the materials that it’s made from to stick to itself. This also means it is reusable, saving money over time. Bondage tape can not only be used to retrain the body, it can also double as a blindfold or mouth gag.

The most basic restraints there are consist of a length of cloth, sometimes using two different textures of materials for either side of the tie. Moving beyond what you can get at your local craft shop, tie restraints like the Black Rose Rosie Restraints incorporate loops into their design so you don’t need to worry about tying or untying knot. This lets you concentrate on other aspects of your session, as well as leaving the scissors behind!

Handcuffs – price range $8 to $30

Your stereotypical metal police handcuffs are usually found in almost every BDSM kit around. Even “vanilla” lovers sometimes have cutsie versions with pink fur and plastic rings. Pastic cuffs are great for bachelorette parties and gag gifts, but not so much in the bedroom when using them for actual restraint. If you’re looking for something with a bit more ‘oomf’, the Fetish Fantasy Handcuffs have the standard key and lock setup, but also have a quick release switch that way if the kids come knocking, untying Daddy is a quick job.

Blindfold – price range $5 to $20

This is one area that we think that you don’t necessarily need to buy a “bondage” styled item in order to get good value for money. You can pick up a standard sleeping eye mask at any department store for a few bucks. One of our writers has a whole collection of them at home from goodie bags on trans-Atlantic flights! If you do want to splash out and get something a bit more durable, Adam and Eve carry an Animal Blindfold that has a rather wild design on the front. Leather lovers may appreciate Fetish Fantasy’s Leather Love Mask, albeit at a higher price than the standard sleep masks.
