What is bondage

The bondage is an erotic practice based on the partial or complete immobilization of the body. The word bondage comes from the French word bondage , which means captivity or bondage.

The excitement that immobilization causes comes from submission, the pleasure of being at someone’s mercy, or of possessing a defenseless person. To achieve a total submission effect, ropes, bandages, handcuffs and many other elements are used.

Bondage as part of BDSM

When we consider what bondage is and what its practices are like, we have to refer to the group of BDSM practices.

The acronym BDSM comes from the words Bondage, Discipline, Domination, Submission, Sadism, Masochism, it is about alternative sexual practices, but related to each other.

BDSM practices are based on domination, submission and obedience, although each one has its own peculiar characteristics.

Bondage is one of the most popular BDSM practices, in fact, most couples admit to having carried out bondage-related practices at some point.

Where do bondage practices come from?

To know what bondage is, we must know its origin. The history of bondage as a more or less regulated sexual experience arises in the United Kingdom, during the Victorian era, in the middle of the 19th century.

The English discipline, practice based on submission, introduced restraints as part of sexual relations, the purpose was to create an erotic situation based on immobilization, thus effectively nullifying a person’s ability to move.

Since the mid-19th century until now, bondage has changed little, but today we have dozens of products that make bondage a very exciting experience for groups and couples.

Tips for enjoying bondage

Now that you know what bondage is, we review some tips for you to enjoy as a group or as a couple.

  • Trust is vital. Being at the mercy of someone, without the ability to move or decide, is very exciting, but it is essential to have confidence, after all, your movements will be reduced.
  • Have you talked before starting? It is essential that all parties involved are clear about what is going to happen, what the limits are and what the other person expects from the bondage experience.
  • Think of different roles to create a game. Bondage is much more fun if we create a story around the situation.
  • Beware of ties. To immobilize a person it is not necessary that the ties are very strong, it is enough that they are in places such as legs or arms.
  • Decide on a keyword. Many couples include cries for help and similar phrases in their bondage relationships, yet they are part of the game. The keyword is used precisely to identify a dangerous situation and stop the game.
  • Be careful with the neck, it is the most delicate area when we make bondage bondage, in fact, it is recommended that we never, in any situation, include ropes in this area.
  • In bondage, and in general in BDSM, there are few rules, each couple must use their imagination to create situations and enjoy them, but as in any sexual practice, the important thing is the safety and enjoyment of all the people involved.
