Comparing the Best Bondage Tapes

The bondage tapes in this post all look very similar, making your decision making pretty tough! To help, I’ve made it a little comparison guide so you can compare the most important features!

Length

If you plan on exploring some more elaborate bondage projects or using bondage tape often, I recommend going for the Lovehoney Black Bondage Tape as it’s the longest option in this review. It has a Bedbible rating of 4.5 / 5.0 and a quality score of 75 / 100.

Price

There’s not a huge amount of difference in the prices, but the cheapest option in this review is the test winner, the Scandal Lovers Bondage Tape with a Bedbible rating of 4.9 / 5.0 and a quality score of 97 / 100. However, the best value for money when you consider the length compared to the price is the Lovehoney Back Bondage Tape, which is a fraction more expensive than the Scandal Lovers Tape but gives you an extra 5 meters to play with!

All of the tapes are 2 inches wide except from the Scandal Lovers Tape which is only 1 inch wide. It’s good to keep in mind that the wider the tape, the less likely it is to dig in. The Sex & Mischief Bondage Tape and Pleasure Tape, both 2 inches wide, have Bedbible ratings of 4.7 / 5.0 and 4.8 / 5.0, respectively, with quality scores of 99 / 100 each. The Bondage Pleasure Tape also has a high Bedbible rating of 4.7 / 5.0 and a quality score of 98 / 100.

There are many uses for bondage tape when it comes to spicing up your sex-life, but if you’re new to it then you might be unsure about how many wonderful things you can actually do with bondage tape.

Gag

Gag - What can you use bondage tape for?
This is something you should talk about with your partner beforehand, as you will need to lock down a safe action, instead of a safe word, due to the restriction of the mouth.

Don't use duct tape!

Never skimp on safety! When it comes to being safe with bondage/bdsm, don’t go for what you’ve already got in the cupboard as chances are it’s not safe for what you’re doing, and could lead to bodily harm. A common misconception with bondage tape, is that duct tape ‘does the job’- it really doesn’t. Yes, it ties your partner up, but at a cost of losing skin, having a reaction, and sporting a bald patch…

Goodbye, skin...

Goodbye, skin... - Don't use duct tape!
Wearing duct tape on the skin, or intimate areas, for long periods of time will be catastrophic. The longer it’s on, the harder it is to get off, and the more skin you will lose. It will end with the wearer desperately trying to soak the tape off in water, or a trip to the emergency room. Duct tape is designed for heavy duty projects that DO NOT include human skin.

Not easy to remove

Not easy to remove - Don't use duct tape!
Duct tape is not a safe option for bondage/bdsm play for many reasons, but the fact that it cannot be easily removed during play is an absolute no go. If the wearer suddenly wants/needs to stop, it will be a while before the duct tape can be removed, and this is not a situation that anyone should be in.

Adhesive reaction

Adhesive reaction - Don't use duct tape!
When you’ve managed to soak the duct tape off after hours, the worst might not have even happened yet- you might develop a reaction to the adhesive, or the tape itself. Blisters could form, resulting in a trip to the emergency room, and possibly scarring.

Goodbye, hair...

Goodbye, hair... - Don't use duct tape!
Whether you prefer to be hair free or not, doesn’t matter when duct tape is involved; it will take a good chunk of hair, and skin!

How to use bondage tape

Before delving into the exciting world of bondage tape, you should know exactly how to use it! Not only for safety, but to ensure you’re getting the most out of the tape. Remember; never ever leave someone alone while restrained, and always have a pair of safety scissors available when using any bondage restraint.

Experiment with different styles

Experiment with different styles

One of the most exciting things about bondage tape is the versatility; you can make lots of sexy body wear with it, and there is no sticky adhesive in the way either! Try binding your hands or feet first to see if you/your partner likes it; you can always move up to more advanced bondage when you’re more familiar.

Communicate

Communicate

In any act of bdsm, communication is vital; be sure to let your partner know what you’re comfortable with, and listen to them- do all this beforehand, or there is a risk of wires being crossed during sex. Always have a safe word/action for when you reach your limit- decide this beforehand.

How to clean bondage tape

If your bondage tape is reusable, you should ensure it is clean before you use it again. If it is not reusable, be sure to dispose of it and use new, clean bondage tape. Some bondage tape is waterproof, while some is not, and so it is important to check the packaging and specifics of your tape. If your bondage tape is waterproof, you should take a clean cloth with warm water and antibacterial soap/toy cleaner, and wipe the tape down. Do not get the tape sopping wet as this may interfere with the quality of it! Be sure to thorougly dry your bondage tape with a clean towel- do not leave to air dry. If your tape is not waterproof, take a dry cloth and add a little bit of toy cleaner/ antibacterial soap mixed with water and gently wipe down the tape- do not get the tape sopping wet. Dry immediately with a clean towel- do not leave to air dry.
