Toy Review: MyPleasure Beginner Bondage Kit

Thanks to Garnet, I recently received a complimentary Beginner Bondage Kit from MyPleasure.com.

This kit has everything you need to delve into some light bondage play. For $39, you get:

  • 2 heart ring tethers
  • 2 heart ring ankle cuffs
  • 2 heart ring wrist cuffs
  •  blindfold
  • rubber whip

Why I Love It:

-The cuffs are faux-fur lined, making them super comfortable

-Both the ankle and wrist cuffs are velcro adjustable, and fit up to 12″ and 10″, respectively

-The rings are shaped like little hearts! Adorable.

 

Why I Don’t Love It:

-The whip is pretty basic and smells like rubber. I’d recommend an upgraded whip while keeping the rest of the kit!

-You need a bed with a headboard and footboard to use the cuffs. This may seem basic, but it’s something I didn’t think of before trying them out. There’s always the potential to cuff your partner to other surfaces, but you should be sure test out the range of motion before getting down and dirty.

-The face mask is pretty small, and doesn’t provide a lot of coverage. You can always substitute this with a silk tie or scarf.

Since I’ve been doing lots of toy reviews lately, I’ve come up with a rating system to help all you MSP readers compare potential toys. So, MSP readers, I present to you, for the first time ever, the newly-patented Sex Toy Scale. And yes, in case you were wondering, I do consider adorability a valid category. Each category has the potential for 5 points.

Price: 4

Ease of Use: 3

Safety: 4

Adorability: 4

Stealth: 5

Total Rating: 20/25

All that being said, the Beginner Bondage Kit is a great starting point for anybody interested in bondage play. It has all the basics, comes in a cute and discreet silk bag, and the price is definitely right.
