Self-bondage is a wonderful thing: a feeling of complete helplessness. Whether you do it because you don’t have someone who will oblige your bondage fantasies, or it’s simply another aspect of your sexuality, there’s a world of support and excitement out there. Read on for my top 4 tips that every self-bondage beginner should know!

The Two Ring Device

One of the most difficult things when performing self-bondage is to get yourself tied nice and tight. Being hogtied (hands and feet behind your back), for instance, is particularly difficult. This is where the infamous two-ring device, pictured below, comes in useful. The special way in which the rope goes through the rings means that pulling one part of the rope will take up the slack and tighten the other; the other half of the rope cannot be pulled back once tightened, so it’s a one way process.

Pull one end to take up the slack; the other end can’t be pulled.

For practical use in a hogtie, the following video outlines how to tie and use one. Combine this with an ice lock, and you’ve got an inescapable hogtie for hours in which to squirm around.

A demonstration on how to tie and use the “Two Ring Device” for self bondage. Supplies needed: Two, 1.5 inch metal rings One, 3 foot 1/4 inch single braid nylon rope Extra supplies needed for simple hogtie: Two, 15 foot 1/4 inch single braid nylon rope One, 12 foot 1/4 inch single braid nylon rope Be careful when using this device in conjunction with cinch knots as it can create inescapable bondage!

This is a simple one I made for testing with a length of dog lead (always useful to have around for kinky play and far more innocent than 20ft of hemp rope), two curtain rings, and a cable tie.

Ice Lock and Key Releases

Once you’re tied up, you do need a way to get out eventually. But how can you time that right, giving a balance between helplessness and eventual guaranteed release? Ice locks are simple devices that can be filled with water, frozen, and when integrated into your bondage are guaranteed to eventually melt, thereby breaking the link and releasing you. Make sure you test the lock beforehand to get a good idea of exactly how much time that will be and have a towel to soak up any dripping water (the ice cold drips can be quite a torture). Ice locks can also be used to hang a key from somewhere inaccessible, but this isn’t quite as reliable, so be sure to weight the key with something else that will ensure it can drop.

The Ice Warden Self-Bondage Time Lock Video

Available at http://www.mybedsidetoys.com The Ice Warden is an ingenious device that lets you enjoy some self-bondage or fun with a partner. Fill the hollow cylinder chamber with water, insert the removable core shaft, and put the Ice Warden in the freezer. Once the water turns to ice, you now have a solid frozen core inside your lock.

 

Here’s an incredibly simple ice lock I made, consisting of a cylindrical pencil sharpener (with the sharpener bit snapped off), and a shoelace tied together with the loops slightly pulled out from the top. You can find far more elaborate plans online, or buy a professionally made metal one for around £50-£100 each.

It’s ugly, but it works. Fill container 2/3rd with water, and freeze

Other forms of ingenious key releases include a piece of string suspended from a computer CD-drive; a timer application on the computer can be then be set to open the drive after a set amount of time, thereby letting the key fall. There’s even a blowjob trainer application, which will only release the key after you correctly perform a number of blowjobs. The app monitors your progress on the webcam, then subjects you to a slideshow of your performance before finally releasing you.

Always Have a Backup

Things can and do go wrong. For some, the excitement of possibly not being able to get out of a self-bondage situation is part of the fun, while for others it’s just the convenience of being tied up when someone else isn’t around to help. Whatever the pleasure you derive from self-bondage, I think we can all agree that you don’t actually want to die from it if the house suddenly burns down, or have the neighbors call the police because they haven’t seen you in a week. So what can you use as a backup?

  • Have a backup key placed somewhere accessible (not downstairs, for instance!). You needn’t make it easy though – try placing the key in a paint tin, so if you absolutely do need to use the backup then the only real damage is done to the carpet.
  • Tell a friend to come round in an hour; if all goes well, you’ll be untied well before then and your friend will be none the wiser. At the very worst, you’ll be embarrassed but not dead. If you have an understanding significant other who will be around in a few hours, then they can be a good backup too.
  • For rope bondage, a pair of scissors to cut your way out is essential; motivation being that you won’t want to ruin the ropes, but the rope is especially dangerous and it’s easy to suffocate or cut off the blood flow, so keeping a backup is even more important.
  • Personally, I just put another weak point into the bondage; a plastic cable tie works well. If you really, really struggle, the cable tie will break before chains or rope will.

Learn More, and Experiment

Like most things in life, the secret is to never stop learning. In the world of self-bondage, these two websites are particularly helpful, with everything from tutorials and DIY instructions, scenarios, software (yes, get your computer involved with self-bondage!) and user forums for help and advice:
