Cuffs made of metal offer more of a “realistic” look & feel, especially for role-playing personas (cops, security, etc.). They can provide a cold and uncomfortable element to the wrists/ankles depending on how they are used and are often available in a range of colours in addition to silver.

Door jam cuffs provide a fun & unique way to try different positions & activities - oral for example - all while standing up! While the tube part sits over the top of a closed door, the cuffs (and the person in them) remain attached and unable to move from their spot against the door. Thanks to their easy setup and takedown, explore all of the fun that can happen behind your closed doors!

Bed Restraint

Bring the fun of cuffs & restraint play right to your bed with a bed restraint! Attaching to a central restraint “system”, the cuffs are sometimes removable so that they can be moved and arranged in different ways. Once you’re all strapped down & ready to go, that’s when the fun begins!
