Who doesn’t have the fantasy of being tied up? And who doesn’t have the fantasy of being taken hard against the wall? Do you recognize yourself in this? Maybe door cuffs are really something for you / yours.
What are door cuffs?
Door cuffs – or door post cuffs – are sex toys that turn any door in your home into a bondage spot. The cuffs are very easy to use. These types of cuffs need to be put over the door and are then held in place by closing the door. Most door cuffs are designed to hold a person’s wrists or ankles. However, there are some that are shaped more like a sex swing.
Door cuffs are usually sold as a set, with a pair of wrist or ankle cuffs, some straps and an attachment. You need to slide the straps over the door to hold a partner’s wrists, or under the door to secure their ankles. Then simply close the door to keep the cuffs in place. They are also just as easy to remove again (open door).
Make sure you use the cuffs on the side that the door opens to (i.e., the door does not turn outward).
The cuffs usually have soft linings with Velcro closures, or buckles. In some cases, the cuffs are connected by sturdy straps that can be adjusted to restrain people of all lengths.
The pros and cons of door cuffs
Although doorpost cuffs are not strong enough for suspension bondage, they are strong enough for regular bondage play.
The main advantage of door cuffs is, they do not require permanent installation. You don’t need to screw bolts into the wall or ceiling. This makes door cuffs ideal for renters, people looking for a portable bondage toy for travel and sleepovers, and anyone who is into BDSM in a discreet way.
A selection of door cuffs
Door cuffs come in a variety of price ranges and really don’t have to be expensive.
Simple door cuffs – for example, as shown here – can be purchased for less than €40. Some of the sets can be expanded later with other wrist or ankle cuffs. If you plan to do so, pay attention to the way the cuffs are attached to the straps. In other words, are the cuffs detachable as well?
