As beautiful as this BDMS leash is, there are definitely a few things to consider before getting this studded wonder. Since the rhinestones also cover the faux leather loop on the leash, the handle itself may not be super comfortable to hold – especially if you’re tugging and pulling on your sub with any significant force. On that note, the O-ring fastening on the collar is quite delicate and might not be suitable for attachments meant for any heavy duty use. The rhinestones also make this leash a bit harder to clean than other leashes. But this collar and leash set really does fulfill some visual pleasures!

If you’re looking to up your leash play a tad, you might want to take a look at some different ways to put your most precious parts under (delicious) duress during your leash play!

Yes, that is indeed a cock on a leash. The penis-owner’s answer to the “pussy tugger” above. Put your sub’s cock and balls on a leash for some intense dominance. This leash is not only for tugging and pulling purposes. The “collar” doubles as a cock ring to help maintain stronger and longer lasting erections.

Bondage Sets with Cuffs and Leashes

Your leash will most likely be compatible with most other bondage restraint kits or sets out there. Adding a leash to some bondage sets with multiple points of restraint can further elevate your kinky experiences and allow you to try out some new restraint and pleasure combinations!

BDSM Leash Safety

It’s so so important to educate yourself about the basic guidelines for safe leash play before actually trying it out.  Basically, it’s always a good idea to be familiar with the basic BDSM safety guidelines in terms of (open and on-going) communication, (freely given and reversible) consent, and (agreed upon) safewords or safe gestures to stop any play immediately. When it comes to playing with collars and leashes, there are few extras points I would like to make in terms of safety basics.

Never too tight!

Never too tight! - BDSM Leash Safety
Collars are simply put not safe if they’re too tight. Make sure you research the sizing range of your collar beforehand so you don’t feel like you have to squeeze into something you actually can’t fit. A good rule of thumbs is that you should be able to fit two fingers under the collar comfortably. You should definitely still be able to breathe, swallow, and move your head side to side when wearing it.

Type of Collar

Type of Collar - BDSM Leash Safety
Be careful of any sharp edges, studs, or spikes on your collar. Not that you shouldn’t use these types of collar or leashes – you just need to be extra careful not to hurt yourself or your partner unintentionally! Also, even if you’re not sure of what type of collar you want or whether or not it will fit or you will like it, you should start out with something with velcro. This way you can get a good fit and easily abort mission if you need to.

No yanking!

No yanking! - BDSM Leash Safety
When using your leash on your sub you can of course use it with however much force you have agreed upon. But one important this is never to quickly yank on the leash. Whatever level of force you choose to use, it should be in more a constant or gradual pressure and never by rapid sharp pulls! This can cause damage to the muscles in the neck or to the spine.

Never for suspension!

Never for suspension! - BDSM Leash Safety
As obvious as it might seem, it’s still neccessary to mention that a leash should never be used a way of suspending a sub as part of some kind og suspension rig. Suspending someone from this point will likely interfere with breathing and circulation and make your sub choke.

How to Use A BDSM Leash

So, we’ve been over the basic safety rules of any leash play. You’re ready to be totally safe and consensual. And you’re eager to pamper your sub with some fun on a leash. Now we can go into all the fun ways you might actually use your brand new bondage leash! Let’s dive straight into some of the best ways I think you could really enjoy your leash!  

Performing Oral

Performing Oral

A leash is a great way to control even the smallest movements in your partner’s neck. That’s why it is ideal to use it to add some spicy power play while your sub is performing oral on you. Keep them in place or tease them by keeping them out of reach. Or use the leash to force them to look at your while you perform oral on them!

Doggy Style

Doggy Style

Ah yes, the classic position for penetrative leash play. Tugging safely on your subs collar while penetrating them in doggy style is a great way to enhance the sensation of power play. First of all, you can influence their ability to breathe and make sounds, as well as controlling the placement of their head and upper body. Second of all, it’s no wonder as to why doggy style is a great position to engage in some naughty puppy play…

Standing From Behind

Standing From Behind

Pretty much the same concept as doggy style with a leash. Although standing up might provide some more room for more intense sensation. Playing with a leash while standing up also adds some literal suspension to the act. Tugging or pulling (safely!) on your subs collar, pulling their head and neck backwards while you thrust into them from behind pushing their body forward is also a great way to create some mild predicament bondage with the sensation of being pushed/pulled in different directions.

Parading the Pup

Parading the Pup

Imagine using your leash to walk your sub around your house or perhaps even at some kind of kinky party or event. Show off your sub (and your dominance) by parading them around the room, controlling their direction, speed, and perhaps even their breathing. Of course, this is also an ideal puppy play activity (both for a sexual and non-sexual setting).

Static Teasing

Static Teasing

Attach your leash to your sub’s collar and tie the leash around something sturdy. Now your sub is stuck at the length of your leash and static. You’re free to tease and torture them physically as well as psychologically. Taunt them with something they desperately want (a sex toy or sexual act of some sort) and keep it just out of reach from them. “You can have this right now, if you can reach it or make it over here”… There’s so much fun to be had with this kind of leashed teasing!

How to Clean a BDSM Leash

Depending on the material of your leash, the cleaning and maintenance process will be different. Genuine leather might enjoy some saddle shampoo and leather conditioner once a while to maintain the material. But common for metal, faux leather, genuine leather, PVC, and even nylon is that it will do well with some spot cleaning with a damp cloth after use.

FAQ

Yes, they are very safe - provided YOU use them safely! Always be sure to ensure constant consent and comfort during any bondage play. If you use your common sense, you're off to a good start. I've included an extra informational section about leash safety further down in the post. Check that out for some more information about how to use BDSM leashes safely.

This depends a lot on what you would like in your BDSM leash. Would you prefer leather, fabric, vinyl, or metal chains in your leash? Do you want a specific texture or pattern adorning your new piece of equipment? Do you want a collar attached or do you already have one? Do you want some extra attachments, like nipple clamps or a ball gag? You should consider these things when looking for a BDSM leash. Generally, I would say that it's a good idea to look for a somewhat sturdy leash that can withstand some actuall tugging and pulling.

Anyone who wants to use a BDSM leash can use them! You don't need to be a seasoned kinkster to be "allowed" to play leashes. You just need to be aware of the basic safety precautions before you start pulling at someones neck.

You can easily fashion a BDSM leash out of ordinary household items. Dog leash? Perfect. A piece of thick rope? Sure. A long belt? Great. Of course, you should exercise some basic caution when making your own DYI BDSM leash. We do not recommend making your own sex toys and always recommend that you purchase purpose-made sex toys from a reputable shop. We are in no way responsible for any harm caused due to the use or sharing of these DIYs. You are 100% responsible for the outcome should you choose to make your own sex toys.

What is a BDSM Leash?

BDSM leashes are not that different from any other regular leash. It's simply a long piece of sturdy material that can be attached to a collar around the neck of your partner, to be used to restrict or control their movements. They come in all sorts of different sizes and materials. Some are more heavy duty leashes, others are more ornamental. No matter what kind of BDSM leash you are using, it's always important to be aware of some basic BDSM safety rules to avoid any discomfort or injury during use. I've included an informational section about leash safety at the end of the post.
