So you purchased a bed restraint - now what?! Do you need some ideas on how to set up and play with your newest bedroom contraption? Let Stag Shop take you through our ideas on ways to play with a bed restraint system!

1. General Dominant & submissive Play

We say "general" here because there are SO many different ways a Dominant & submissive could choose to play with each other. However, at the most basic level of power exchange, a bed restraint allows you to take control over a partner while they’re restrained and unable to move. What happens next is completely up to you! Use a toy on them, role-play, tease & please, and get creative!

2. Explore different positions

Most bed restraint systems feature points that are to be attached to cuffs, typically in the shape of an “X”. While the cuff may be attached and “stuck” in this specific design, you can still attach yourself to it in different ways such as by not using the cuffs all at once, and/or using it width-wise or “side-ways”.

Alternatively, the person being restrained can switch up positions by attaching to the bed restraint on their back, stomach, knees, etc. Altering positions offers different views and parts of the body begging to be played with!

3. Temperature & Sensation Play

While you have their naked body lying restrained in front of you is the perfect time to add some temperature and/or sensation play! Both are designed for teasing pleasure that can heighten arousal and drive nerve endings wild.

Try heating/cooling a glass dildo or choose a sensation tool such as a feather tickler or pinwheel. If you’re looking for something a little more intense, wax play is another type of activity that can provide both the heat and the sensation which some folks find painful.

4. Impact Play

Take your Dominant & submissive roles even further by incorporating some impact play; either with your hand for a more manual spanking or a toy like a flogger or a crop. Just be sure to stick to the fleshier parts of the body such as the butt, upper thighs, chest, etc. for an impact that really slaps (pun intended)!

5. A Body Massage

Have you ever heard of a Nuru Massage? It’s a specific style of massage that has the giver use their full-body rather than hands to do the massaging. So strip down yourself, oil up, and slip n’ slide all over their restrained body!

6. Incorporate a Positional Aid

Especially if you plan on using your bed restraint system for a longer period of time, it might be a good idea to incorporate some positional aids, like a Liberator! These types of products are designed to provide comfort, new angles & creativity with positions, and extend play sessions.

Try using one:

  • Under the hips (also provides a more elevated angle of penetration)
  • Under the head
  • Under the knees
  • Under the chest

7. (Edible) Body Paint
