BDSM Product Review: Beautiful Sensations Embers Flogger

Slowly but surely Joy and I are working our way through the plethora of fun new items that St. Nick brought us over the holidays. And slowly but surely I’m working on reviews of the products. At the rate of 1 per week that I’m currently traveling, I ought to be caught up by about Halloween!

Today’s review is of the Beautiful Sensations Embers Flogger, our new favorite “good girl spanking” tool. For those who are not aware, Beautiful Sensations is owned and operated by the illustrious blogger Conina, and each of the floggers she sells is handmade by her. We purchased a lovely red-and-black model, and after having test driven it a few times now, it far surpasses the previous commercially-made product we owned previously.

For more detail and to see a picture (the flogger is gorgeous), please take a look at the full review. And in the meantime, I’m going to go open up the toy chest to see what it may have in store for Joy tonight…

Enjoy Yourself,

Jake

BDSM Product Review: Spandex Hood with Blindfold and Mouth Hole

Slowly but surely I am continuing to work my way through reviews of the new BDSM products we added to our collection this past Christmas. Today I posted an evaluation of the Spandex Hood with Blindfold and Mouth Hole, which is basically an incremental improvement over our previous lightweight bondage hood. This new one has a blindfold built right in, which solves a problem with Joy being able to see through the thin spandex.

A hood isn’t appropriate for every adventure–in general, I’d far rather see Joy’s face when we’re in a scene together! However, sometimes a touch of anonymity and de-personalization is in order, and in those cases, this is our new favorite hood. Check out the review for more detail.

Enjoy yourself,

Jake

Holiday Shopping Guide

Yes, I’m afraid it’s that time again…time to start shopping for the holidays! Now, I’m not typically much of a shopping kind of guy–I leave that to Joy–but when it comes to bondage equipment, toys and other naughty items, well, that’s another story. I have lots of fun scouting out web sites and searching for something new or better we can add to our toy chest. So, while looking for a new sweater for my mother-in-law or something acceptable we can take to a dinner party may leave me cold, selecting some new lingerie that would look good on Joy, a nice, new paddle to minister to her tender bottom, or some wicked bondage restraint that will leave her gasping and helpless makes me really rather hot.

Of course, visitors to this blog may have similar interests when it comes to holiday gift-giving, and with that in mind, I’d like to present Leather Cuffs and Silken Bonds’ second annual Holiday Shopping Guide. The guide summarizes the “best” BDSM-themed items we’ve found and breaks them out by category of interest. The goal is to make it quick and easy for you to find something suitable to place under that special, naughty Christmas tree…you know, the one with the gifts that Santa would never dare to bring!

All products listed have been strenuously tested (some more strenuously than others) by Joy and I and meet with our personal stamp of approval. For those readers who may be just starting out in their exploration of BDSM, or for those who have not yet begun to experiment but are considering surprising their significant other with something really “unexpected” in their stocking, I’ve also noted items we consider suitable for beginners.

Of course, our full BDSM product reviews library remains available if you’d like to check out other options that didn’t achieve a “best” rating. And if there’s nothing listed that catches your eye, I’ve included links out to merchants we like so that you can browse from a wider selection. Full disclosure–we have an affiliate relationship with some of the merchants we recommend.

I wish you luck on your search for the perfect holiday gift! As for me, I’m going to check in with Joy to see if she’s finished her Christmas list yet. Generally, I let Santa take care of the “good girl” gifts. I tend to concentrate on the naughty girl side of the equation…

Enjoy yourself,

Jake

BDSM Product Review: Je T’aime Sept Traditional Vibrator

Joy and I have recommended the Waterproof Turbo Glider Raspberry Crush as our “best” traditional vibrator for almost a year. However, during that time, we’ve had to replace the Turbo Glider twice. Something in the twist on/twist off controls keeps breaking, leaving the vibrator inert after awhile. While it’s still great fun while it’s operational, this lack of durability made me decide to look around to see what other options I could find.

After a fair amount of scouting and research, I decided to make a purchase. Joy and I have been using the Je T’aime Sept Traditional Vibrator together now for more than a month, and based on it’s performance, we’ve now officially designated it as our new, official “best” traditional vibrator.

Why is it best? Well, first, because it’s vibrations seem to be uncommonly powerful compared to other vibrators in its class. And second, because the control scheme solves a couple different issues that tend to crop up when using a vibrator for couples play.

If you’re interested, please take a look at the full review. And if you’re in the market for a vibrator, especially one that you will use together with your partner, this one’s definitely worth considering.

BDSM Product Review: Vac U Lock Hung Black Dildo

Do you like big cocks? I mean, really BIG ones? I’ve just posted a review of the “Hung Black” strap on dildo from Doc Johnson. This dildo forms the upper boundary of what Joy is able to handle, and it is not for the faint of heart. However, if you want to feel really, utterly and completely full, look no further. If you’re intrigued by this idea, check out the full review

By the way, last day of the spanking challenge! I’ll provide final scores in a day or so to allow contestants time to send me their last few updates. Hope everyone has had as much fun spanking their way around the house as Joy and I have!

Enjoy yourself,

Jake
