Leather Cuffs and Silken Bonds reviews BDSM-related online retailers by placing actual orders and making actual purchases, without the retailer being aware that they are being reviewed. Our experiences with each vendor are noted and compared with other, competing vendors, and a “best in category” is selected based on this comparison. Vendors who were not chosen as “best” are nonetheless reviewed and listed under “other options”. In the event that we try a new vendor and find them superior, we will make the new vendor “best in category” and move the former “best” to the other options list.
Note that all reviews are conducted by Jake, Joy or both, and a certain amount of subjectivity can be expected! However, we do our best to be as objective as possible, and to write down the reasons why we consider a specific retailer to be the “best” so that you can consider them. In some cases, Leather Cuffs and Silken Bonds may have an affiliate relationship with a vendor. We do our best to not let that influence our review, and will disclose that affiliate relationship in the review so that you are aware.
If you have thoughts or questions on vendors or suggestions on other online retailers for us to try out and review, please submit them in the comments area.
