BDSM toys

Maybe Fifty Shades of Grey or Netflix’s 365 Days piqued your interest. Maybe your lover (consensually) spanked or bit you a little harder than usual and you savored the sensation. Maybe you’ve never enjoyed the vanilla side of things and always leaned on the kinkier side in the bedroom. Or you have a hard-on for sex toys and hardware.

Whatever the reason, you’re welcome. Let’s get started on helping you kick up your kink with BDSM toys that will help enhance the power dynamics during bedroom play.

What Does BDSM Toy Mean?

BDSM sex toys are a class of sex toys that have been specifically designed to enhance humiliation play, bondage and other sexual activities enjoyed by BDSM couples. These toys are typically made to physically restrain a partner (the submissive partner or sub), gag or blindfold a partner, or tease a partner while they are restrained and unable to move. These sex toys are intended to increase the pleasure and pain experienced during a BDSM scene.

BDSM gear is made from sturdy material, such as latex, leather, steel or satin. The material plays an important role because the toys should be capable of withstanding wear and tear of rough BDSM play.

Types of BDSM Toys

BDSM Restraints

BDSM restraints and bondage are the most common form of kinks that BDSM couples indulge in while having sex. BDSM restraints come in all sizes and shapes and the popular ones are:

  • Bondage rope – These are versatile and the submissive party can be easily tied to the bed or in a submissive position. Ropes are used to restrict the movement of the sub and can be combined in different types of BDSM and vanilla plays. You can achieve various bondage methods using ropes, such as breast bondage, hogtie bondage, Western bondage ball tie, bondage rope harness, suspension bondage and so on. Shibari bondage is the most traditional bondage style that originated in Japan. This is a decorative bondage style that does not aim to hurt the sub.
  • Spreader bars and yokes – These are designed to spread out subs in one way or another. The most common are arm-spreading bars that force a sub’s arms to be spread out over the head, leaving the genitals and torso vulnerable. Leg-spreading bars are also common and this forces the sub’s legs to be spread wide open.
  • Collars – Collars are the ultimate symbol that you own your sub, and you can drag your sub around by the collar. They’re great for dom/sub power exchange and pup play. Collars come in various styles, shapes and materials. Some even come with a ball gag attached to them so that the sub cannot speak.
  • Anal hooks – These have a ball/s attached to the end, which is inserted into the anus. The main length of the anal hook sticks out and you can attach ropes onto the hook or other pieces of bondage gear to keep your sub in line.
  • Arm binders – Arm binders take BDSM bondage play to the next level by not leaving any wiggle room for the sub. By using these, you can entirely bind your slave’s arms and give them no room to struggle or move when you are teasing their body.
  • Gags – Gags are a huge turn on for both dominants and submissives. Also, those who are into extreme pup roleplay. Gags are available in myriad sizes, shapes and materials to suit both beginners and advanced BDSM couples. Some of the popular types of gags are bit, ball, butterfly, cleave, over-the-nose, funnel, harness, muzzle, pecker, spider and tube gag. A gag is one of the most preferred bondage toys.
  • Tape – Bondage or pleasure tape is designed in such a way that it only sticks to itself. So, when you wrap it around your sub’s body, it creates a strong bond without sticking directly to their skin. This is a professional bondage tape that is made for BDSM play.
  • Blindfolds and hoods – These are some of the most powerful devices to incorporate into your BDSM bondage and restraint play. These cause sensory deprivation by blocking out one or more senses. Blindfold blocks vision and that heightens one’s senses of taste, smell and sound. Hoods, on the other hand, target different senses based on their model.
  • Cuffs and straps – Bondage straps and cuffs are gateway bondage items for beginners and pros. They are the easiest way to tie someone up.
  • Body harnesses – These are a staple of wearable bondage. The rings and straps found on the harness are easy to use, and the legs and arms of the wearer can be restricted from moving. Body harnesses can be used on its own or in conjunction with other types of restraints.

Impact play tools

Impact play is a common form of BDSM, involving hitting with hand or some kind of BDSM equipment like, a flogger, whip or paddle. Lots of people find impact play deeply arousing as it crosses the lines between pain and pleasure. A lot of people like to see the red bruising that their spanking or hitting has caused on their sub’s bottoms. Also, some subs like to be physically punished for something that they have done or not done. For impact play, the popular toys are:

  • Floggers – Floggers are liked for their versatility. For instance, you can use a long leather flogger with several long strands for whipping your sub and also for sensation play. Floggers are available in leather, rubber and even steel. Enthusiasts of S&M toys consider floggers as a staple kink toy.
  • Paddles – Compared to floggers and whips, paddles evenly distribute the impact. When you use paddles to spank your sub, their ass is bound to be red after a couple of hits. Leather paddles sting more than wooden ones.
  • Canes – A lot like whips, canes strike fear into subs. They have a small impact area and are extremely stingy. Canes cut through air like a hot knife through butter, and therefore, one must exercise caution while swinging.
  • Riding crops – These are fun to use and their impact zone is small, which means that they are more on the stingy side of pain. As they are aerodynamic by design, one should be careful when using them.
  • Whips – Whips are designed to inflict pain on your sub and instill fear. You can use it to strike the skin and cause pain or just scare your sub by lashing it out to the ground. Whips come in various sizes and styles, and some of the popular ones are dragon tail whips, bullwhips and cat o’ nine tails. Whips are considered to be the most dangerous of BDSM devices and are only used by the pros.

Orgasm control and chastity devices

Orgasm control is an exciting way to completely dominate a sub, and the use of chastity devices allows dominants to have total control over their sub. These devices prevent genital stimulation of any kind. While wearing these devices, neither masturbation nor intercourse is possible. You will find both male and female chastity devices.

Male chastity devices come with holes and can be worn for extended periods, but female chastity devices can only be worn for a short period because one cannot go to the bathroom when wearing these.

Nipple clamps

Nipple clamps serve many roles and can be used for breast torture, pleasure and as bondage restraints. Whether you feel torture or pleasure, it depends on the sensitivity of your nipples and also the clamp used. To heighten the sensation during nipple play, you can use vibrating or weighted nipple clamps.

Crocodile and common clothespin style nipple clamps often border between torture and pleasure as they are not adjustable but are quite popular. If you are seeking versatility, you can check out screw clamps. These clamps come with a little screw that can be used to adjust the tightness of the clamps. There are also tweezer clamps that provide sharper pain and stimulation compared to the other clamp styles.

Nipple pumps provide pleasurable suction to the nipples, but they can also be used to torture your sub if you continue to suck the air out of the tubes. As the blow flow increases, the nipples become very sensitive and this makes for an extremely intense nipple play session.

The other two painful and intense styles of nipple clamps are clover/Japanese butterfly clamps and chained nipple clamps. These are mostly reserved for advanced BDSM couples.

These BDSM tools can be wrapped around a post or even through restraints like, cuffs and collars to limit the sub’s movements.

Pussy pumps

Pussy pumps help in heightening the sexual experience of a woman, with or without a partner. These pumps form a vacuum around the clitoris or/and the labia and draw blood into that area. This results in the pussy appearing slightly puffy or swollen. Also, it makes the pussy extremely sensitive to touch.

Cock cages

Man’s cock is his pride, and this is why dominants enjoy punishing a man’s dick. This is where cock cages come in. These come in various constructions, from stainless steel to silicone. They are designed to take away a man’s access to his penis and also prevent him from getting an erection or cumming until the cage is unlocked.

Dildos and vibrators

Vibrators and dildos are the most common type of toys for indulging in kinky BDSM. They can be used for pleasure or during consensual forced orgasm BDSM play. The different types available on the market are given below:

  • Wand vibrators – When it comes to BDSM, wand vibrators are very popular due to their ability to produce vibrations at a higher RPM. They’re very intense and work well for people who enjoy strong sensations on their vulva or penis.
  • Clitoral vibrators – They’re less phallic-shaped and much smaller than other types of vibes. They are specifically intended for stimulating the clit.
  • Rabbit vibrators – A rabbit vibrator is a combination of a G-spot toy and an external vibrator. Its external part resembles the ears of a rabbit and that provides stimulation to the clit. There is also a second attachment that goes inside the vagina and stimulates the G-spot.
  • Dildos – Dildos are BDSM items that are shaped like a penis and meant to be inserted into the vagina. They come in various sizes and made from different materials, from silicone to glass and stainless steel. Beginners are recommended to try the 3 to 4 inches dildo while pros can go for 5 to 6 inches or even higher sized dildos.

Butt plugs and anal beads

Butt plugs are for those who wish to experiment with anal play. They teach the body to accept anal penetration and also train the sphincter to feel relaxed around various sized toys. They help to stimulate the rings of nerves surrounding the anus and are available in different sizes, shapes and styles. Butt plugs are specifically designed to be inserted into the anus.

Unlike butt plugs, anal beads offer the sensation of the anal sphincter opening and closing. The moment the beads are inserted into the anus, the sphincter opens and then closes. There are also vibrating beads that provide the sensation of vibration inside the anus.

Cock rings

Cock rings compress the blood vessels and make the penis sensitive to touch. Also, they make penises appear longer. There are also vibrating cock rings available today that provide the wearer with a buzzy sensation and also of the partner being penetrated.

Submissive and dominant sex toys spice up BDSM play and you can find toys for both beginners and advanced level BDSM couples. You can choose BDSM gear based on your level of play, which can be intermediate, medium or intense. But, always remember to include your imagination as part of your S&M toy arsenal so that you can come up with exciting or scary scenes to play with your partner.
