When we think about BDSM, playthings made of leather and metal primarily come to mind. While a pair of strong metal handcuffs can certainly do the job, there is a whole gamut of products to explore–including bondage tape. Made of a shiny, sleek PVC material, bondage tape only sticks to itself, not your skin or hair. It's got a nice stretch to it so it can be pulled tight without having to learn how to tie elaborate knots. Tether is Unbound's very own bondage tape. It's great for those curious about BDSM, but it favors the bold or more experienced as well. Because Tether is super versatile, you can explore basic restraint play, bondage as fashion, or adventure into more niche stuff like pony play. We met up with Mistress Couple, Head Mistress at La Domaine Esemar to get her bondage tape tips and tricks. 

Before we start, a few words on safety...

  • Never leave someone unattended if they are restrained.

  • Have a pair of safety scissors nearby in case a quick exit is needed.

  • Check in regularly to ensure the restrainee is able to breathe and move as they wish. If you feel a safe word might be helpful, agree to one beforehand. If you want to just ask them, you can do that too.

  • If your restraint play involves someone being gagged or unable to speak, make sure their nasal passages are clear and you have agreed on a gesture that signals any type of discomfort.  

Tether as fashion:

Tether sticks to itself which makes it perfect for crafting wearable BDSM. A skirt that binds the legs together, a bandeau top that's NSFW but perfect for Instagram–the options are endless. Tether can also be reused so you can play around with a couple different lewks. Each roll comes with 50ft of Tether, but if you're looking to do some full body coverage you might want to stock up on at least two rolls.

Restrain yourself:

Restraint play is an incredible way to exchange power with a partner. Whether you're tying someone to the bed, a chair, or just binding their hands or feet together, it can be a great way to explore desire and anticipation of sensation. Start with a single column tie first, then dive into the more complex ties.

Pony up to the next level:

A versatile product like bondage tape allows you to create more complex BDSM items without the full investment. It can also be useful if you want to explore more niche desires like pony play without outfitting your bedroom with the actual gear.
