31-05-2019 - Written by Jett Oxy - Follow on medium 

What self-bondage is all about is the voluntary entry into a restraint system of your choice, while leaving another person with the power to release you or not. The danger of this type of play stems out of the fact that you are alone for the most part,leaving you with no one to call on in the case of an emergency.In this piece, we will take a closer look at how you can practice self-bondage safely without missing out on any fun as a beginner. Read on!

Methods of Self-Bondage


Let’s take a quick look at the various options of self-restraint.

  • Rope – The rope offers a unique feeling against your skin, and you can enjoythis by practicing various legs ties, body harnesses, and similar rigs onyourself. However, it comes with the risk of injuries, especially if you are new

  • Chains – The feel, sound, and weight of chains on the body is a huge turn-onfor some people. Chains offer a hardcore and fun experience, although yourchances of escape are almost zero.

  • Plastic Wrap – What is used here is the same wrap you use to cover yourleftovers. However, it is your body instead of the leftovers in this case. Thematerial gets you sweating because it doesn’t breathe, and if it gets extreme orclose to your face, you may suffocate. Despite its flexibility and delicatenature, you will never get out of a plastic wrap easily.

  • Tape – Either an electrical or duct tape, it restrains and pulls at your skin,thus serving you that unique feel of pain and ecstasy. Getting out is difficult!

  • Handcuffs – Also made of metal, these devices offer some ecstatic feel to thebody, both the cheap and expensive ones. However, you should watch out foryour circulation while in one

  • Leather – Leather can be beautiful and appealing. However, you will need tospend more on the nice ones.

  • Latex – While most people will not consider this as an outright self-bondagedevice, you will be amazed at the level of the illusion of restricted movementyou get from Latex. It is not suitable for people prone to allergies.

  • Rubber – Almost like the latex, but with reduced chances of allergy. It iscostlier than the latex but is far more durable.

  • Straight Jackets – This is sort of a strange option on the list, considering thatthe restraints are always behind the back. However, if the hands are in thefront, it can do a good job on self-bondage.

  • Bags and Sacks – These things will keep you warm, with sufficient space androom for movement – more like a mummy body suit.

Dangers Associated with Self Restraint


As said earlier, this play obviously comes with significant dangers, including;

  • Blood circulation – caused by tightness of the bondage, and which may causesevere damages.

  • Suffocation – As exciting as autoerotic asphyxiation might appear, it could befatal in some cases.

  • Tissue and nerve damage – Items like rope can cause serious bruising on yourbody if you fail to put safety measures in place.

  • Dehydration – By sweating more than the usual, chances are higher that youwill get hydrated if the session lasts longer than usual.

Crucial Safety Tips



1. Always Plan!

The importance of planning cannot be overemphasized. Come up with a good plan after thorough research. Then try out your favorite self-restraint style on your legs for a very short while. You can increase the intensity and drive to the upper parts of your body – waist, and torso – while your arms are still free. Every part of the session must follow a plan – the duration, intensity, and the escape route in the case of emergencies. For instance, if you have a preference for a dark environment, you should put measures in place to get light easily whenever you want it. It may seem like this is not a problem. However, you must consider and have a solution in place. Also, keep all the useful materials close, including cell phone, timer, bolt cutters, safety scissors, and water.

2. Understand how your lock works


There are a couple of options here, including:

  • Electromagnet – Usually complicated, it is not advisable for beginners

  • Timer – Using a box or lock box with a countdown timer is safer, especiallythe plastic models. They can be smashed if you have to.

  • Combination – Never gamble on the opening combination of your lock. Ifpossible, write it somewhere near you.

  • Padlock – Have several spare keys to your padlock or handcuff, and keep themclose enough.

3. Escaping during Emergencies


Escaping is an art you must master, considering that it is always immediate. Hereare some useful tips;

  • Always keep your emergency keys close by.

  • Medical scissors are must-have and must be by your side.

  • Keep your bolt cutters close if you are playing with chains

  • Paint key – Rather than keeping your spare key in a paint can to make it a bitmessy when you reach for it; you can try honey or something less difficult.

  • Ice – You can keep your key in ice, but with a “timed release,” which you musthave tested before the session. Alternatively, you can keep the key in bottles,stockings, or bowls.

  • Lastly, you can keep the key to your lock with someone who understands whatyou are into and is always close by to step in when you need them.

4. Other safety tips include:

  • Always have backups in place for your backups

  • Avoid taking too much liquid before the session, to reduce your need to pee

  • It is okay to leave your arms free

  • Keep your neck and head out of restraints

  • Keep off drugs and alcohol during self-bondage sessions

  • Watch out for any unusual change in your body, especially numbness

  • Start with a lit environment before heading to the dark spots

  • Start slow, increase the intensity slowly, and be watchful of the limits

  • Work with a time frame and stick to it

  • Endeavor not to fall off things, so that there is no additional damage

  • Avoid gags and do not tie yourself to fixed objects

  • Adhere to all RISK and SSSC practices


Finally, keep in mind that all we have discussed is only for the beginners. You will
need to learn more as you progress in the realm of self-restraining.


Have fun, but stay safe!

Selfbondage is the only kind of bondage I’ve been able to enjoy in all my 64 years of life. Anyone who tells you that you can find a girlfriend or wife or even a Mistress who will do that for you is a lying s.o.b. or is high. Actually I did have a girlfriend once who liked and wanted to do that to me, but I was foolish enough to let her get away from me, and I’ll go to my grave cursing myself for doing so.

I have tried every form of self restraint imaginable, but in the end none are self fulfilling and i have made it as difficult as possible to release myself. Even a mistress I served , after a period she always released me, never satisfied I’m afraid

Need to add this to plastic wrap !!! for using it safely.
Be very aware that plastic wrap can roll very easily and form a thin and nearly unstretchable cord which does not stretch and can not be broken. It can cut in, cutoff circulation much like rope.
