Ready to cuff your sweetie’s ankles securely and safely to sweeten to your play session? Then look no further! These cuffs are part of Stockroom’s new limited-edition line with Spectrum Boutique’s Zoë Ligon. The garment leather on these cuffs is soft, supple, and comfortable to wear, while easily strong enough to hold up to the best efforts of even the squirmiest sub. In comparison to other ankle cuffs, this one has a vivacious, bold femme quality that we expect when we think of everything the dildo duchess, Zoë, has done. The mint-green just adds a pop of color in the world of BDSM, where the choice is always between black and pink. These ankle cuffs comes in two sizes: S/M and M/L. I would recommend that anyone under a size 14 should try the S/M first. In general, these cuffs should sit comfortably around your ankles. Anything too tight or too loose will not allow you to fully enjoy the feeling of being a submissive sub.

How to use Ankle Cuffs Safely

When exploring erotic bondage, it is important to remember some safety guidelines.

Trust, Trust, Trust

Trust, Trust, Trust

First of all, and above all, never do bondage with someone you don’t fully trust! Once you are restrained, your movements are very limited and this person can do anything to you. Please explore the world of bondage with a long-term trusted partner. In addition, never leave a restrained person alone for any reason!

Communication is KEY

Communication is KEY

Before continuing, make sure you and your partner know each others health issues that could most likely impact bondage play. Proceed with caution if you have diabetes, heart or circulatory problems, epilepsy or seizures, or joint injuries. When in doubt, ask your doctor if bondage is safe. Another thing is to create safe words e.g. green can be to continue, yellow to slow down, and red is to stop.

Keep in mind

Keep in mind

If you or your partner are restrained, and the hands or feet start to tingle or get numb, please tell your partner immediately! This usually means that the restraint is cutting off blood flow or pressing on a nerve. Let your partner loosen (or cut if it is an emergency) the restraints slightly, so that the tingling feeling goes away. So, always keep a pair of scissors and  never use a lock that requires a key.

How to clean your ankle cuffs for sex

Similar to handcuffs, different ankle cuffs will have different cleaning instructions. It all depends on what material(s) they are made of. With most solid cuffs, they can be easily cleaned by wiping them down with a clean cloth. All in all, always check the manufacturer's instructions first. We don't want you to destroy your cuffs.


Nowadays, you have a number of choices on where to buy ankle cuffs. However, that doesn't mean that all sex shops are reputable and trustful. Thankfully, we always work with sex toy stores that we trust and know, so in the end you will be getting safe ankle cuffs to enjoy with your partner.

Similar to handcuffs, ankle cuffs can be used to restrain your partner and limit the use of their legs. Usually, it is combined with other types of restraints for bondage play or with other sexual activities such as intercourse or outercourse.

Normally, purpose made ankle cuffs (like the ones in this review) are the safest option as there is a risk that you can accidentally interfere with your or your partner's circulation - something that we can all agree on that it is not fun! If you don't have access to that, you can make some ankle cuffs using a belt, rope, or some scarves you have laying around. Again, just be careful as a material like silk can easily tighten itself.

Simple answer? To explore power play! Bondage alters the balance of power and what better way to help create a feeling of submission, than having your partner wear ankle cuffs and preventing them from getting away as you tease them.

What is ankle cuffs for sex?

Ankle cuffs for sex are physical restraints used on the ankles of a person. They can be used to bind a person's ankles - limiting their movement or preventing them for pleasuring themselves. Additionally, they can also be used to restrain your sub in a certain position or location while you tease them endlessly. A great thing about ankle cuffs are that they can be used by both beginners or those more advanced in the world of bondage and BDSM alike.
