How To Put Yourself In BDSM Restraints

With more and more relationships taking place online these days, submissives are finding themselves doing many of the things their Doms usually do. Putting themselves into wrist and ankle restraints is often top of the list. So here’s a quick tutorial to show you how to put yourself in wrist and ankle restraints.

What You Need

You don’t need to spend a lot of money or purchase a complicated setup. A set of wrist and ankle cuffs with two chains, two connectors, and rope are all you need to get started.

Prepare Your Rope

I tie my rope to the legs of my bedframe. You can tie it to headboard and footboard if you have one, or if you’re lucky enough to have a four poster bed, tie it to the posters. Whatever you tie it to, you will need to make sure you have the correct length. You want it just long enough to reach the top of the mattress. I recommend starting with a piece of rope twice as long as you think you need. Tie an overhand loop knot in one end.

Using the overhand loop knot makes it easy to add and remove the rope from the bed. Wrap the rope around the leg of the bedframe and pull the end through the loop and tighten.

Once you know how long you need the rope, tie another overhand loop knot in the other end of the rope. You can cut off the excess rope, but I recommend leaving some extra until you have used it a couple of times, in case you need to adjust the length. You are now ready to put on the cuffs and put yourself into restraints.

Attaching the Restraints

I attach the chains and connectors to the ropes so they are easy to keep up with. The chains go on the wrist ropes and the connectors go on the ankle ropes. I use clothespins to hold the rope to the bed, otherwise the ropes will slip off to the floor. Just clip the rope to your sheet or mattress right behind the knot and it should hold in place until you need it.

Putting on the wrist cuffs takes some practice, but it will get easier. The biggest problem is holding it still while you buckle it, since you have only one hand available. It helps if you rest the wrist being cuffed on top of something, the bed or your leg, pressing down so the cuff is squeezed between your wrist and whatever to hold it steady. Velcro cuffs, while not as pretty as the leather cuffs, are even easier.

Once you have all four cuffs on, position yourself in the bed so that you can reach both sets of cuffs. If your ropes need adjusting, now is the time to make the adjustments. You want the ropes to have very little slack in them. The idea is to restrict your movements, so make sure they are not too long. Once you have them at the correct length, clip the connectors to your ankle cuffs.

Now it’s time for the wrists. The main thing to remember is if you can get into bondage, you can get out. So have fun and don’t panic. No matter how much you pull on the chains, you will be able to unclip them.

Start by unhooking the chains from the ropes and clipping them to a ring on each cuff. Make sure you keep the rope attached to the bed with the clothespins. Next, using your dominant hand, clip the chain on the cuff of your non-dominant hand to the rope, then remove the clothespin. This leaves your dominant hand free to do the tricky work. The length of the chain will allow you to bend your wrist and and grab the clip. Carefully clip the chain to the rope, the remove the clothespin. You have successfully cuffed yourself!

I hope this has been helpful. I enjoy bondage and being able to put myself into bondage for play has greatly added to the enjoyment of both me and my Master.
