Review: Twisted Love Ties

twistedloveties

When I first received the Twisted Love Ties from Sportsheets I was a little wary of them. The first thought I had about them was that they remind me of large bread ties, Marla had the same reaction. I could already see the convenient use of them as a fast light bondage item which would be rather versatile, so I was also excited to try them.

The Twisted Love Ties easily slip around wrists or ankles, and can be wound around multiple times or crossed over themselves, attached to themselves or to other objects, all sorts of combinations. They basically feel like foam wrapped around a bendable spine with a fabric cover.

They seemed overly stiff at first and while they were somewhat easy to mold they just didn’t seem like they would be that comfortable. I experimented with them right away and wasn’t too impressed so didn’t end up actually using them during play until quite some time later.

Every time I used the ties by themselves they were rather uncomfortable. Although they bend rather easily by hand they are not easily bent when already around a wrist or ankle, which made it difficult to have them on for long periods of time as moving the limbs around at all wasn’t easy. Although the idea of bondage is to restrain movement the bottom generally tends to squirm and wiggle within the bonds, the ties were too difficult to put perfectly around to restrict movement within the ties and were too uncomfortable to use on their own.

Where the Twisted Love Ties really shine, however, is when coupled with a hard object, specifically I used them with a spreader bar. I think they work so well combined with a hard object because the hardness of the spreader bar makes the slight stiffness of the ties feel soft in comparison. They slipped easily through the loops on the end of both spreader bars I tried them with, and were great for using the spreader bar on knees specifically as well as ankles.

While I wasn’t impressed with the ties by themselves I know I will be using them over and over again with my spreader bars. All three of us are impressed at how well they work.

Much thanks to Sportsheets for letting me review their Twisted Love Ties!

Review: Cuffies Freestyle [Fun Factory Week]

Fun Factory Week continues with a new and slightly unusual FF item!

Did you see the start of Fun Factory Week with the Boss (Lady) review yesterday?

Note: I recently had to slice the RAM of my computer in half, because of that my video isn’t recording as nicely as it used to. Some of the video is extremely choppy, and I apologize, but I think you get the idea.

Cuffies are a new Fun Factory item that I think are absolutely adorable. They are meant to be light bondage items with the cuffs being fashionable and discreet enough to wear with an everyday outfit but with hoops on them to attach the included aluminum chain. Fun Fatory actually has a few different designs including Hippie which are brown and turquoise and close with cufflinks, and Freestyle which are the ones I’m reviewing today and are black/grey and orange and close with ribbon.

The cuffs themselves are made out of rubber, which is something I’m actually disappointed about. The rubber means that the cuffs have no breatheability whatsoever so they end up getting your wrists sweaty even after a short period of use. This kind of defeats the idea of being able to wear them casually for long(ish) periods of time or even wearing them for long periods of play time, especially in the warmer months. I would imagine I would enjoy wearing them more in the cooler months, however.

Other than the breatheability issue I think they are cute and definitely serve their purpose. They are definitely not a heavy-duty item but they can withstand a small amount of resistance and would be extremely fun for quick bondage especially in public. I imagine quick and dirty park sex with wrists bound by the chain of these cute babies, maybe behind the back with the penetrating partner holding onto the chain… or any other quick fantasy. That is definitely what these cuffs are made for and where they shine.

Being able to wear them discreetly is also a plus, as they can be a focal point for power play if used correctly, since they are bondage items that don’t really look extremely kinky or out of place. A jiggling of the chain in the Top’s pocket or a simple touch or tug on the cuffs themselves from the Top can remind the bottom that s/he is subject to be bound at any given time. There are really many possibilities to the use of these adorable cuffs.
