The faux snakeskin is beautiful and would make a fabulously fashionable addition to any toybox.

The cold metal and locking feature definitely gives these cuffs a more serious feel, but you also have the added safety of knowing you can use the quick release levers, making these great for anyone who loves the thrill but still wants an escape route! The cuffs are joined by a short metal chain that cannot be separated so they can only be used for restraining the wrists and not with other sexual restraints or for tying your partner to something, so keep that in mind. The metal can be a bit uncomfortable and a rub your wrists, especially if you are moving around a lot, so these aren’t going to be the most comfortable, but that adds to the experience for some people! The satin storage back is also a really nice touch that gives these cuffs a more luxurious feel.

The cuffs are quite wide and comfortable to wear and the corset design looks very sexy when on. The chain in the middle isn’t particularly strong and you can easily get out of them if you want/need to, making them well suited to bondage beginners or those who don’t need strong restraints.

I think the Saffron Gauntlet Cuffs are a great step up in the bondage game for any intermediate to moderately experienced kinksters who are looking for more spice! Covering a wider surface area, the gauntlet cuffs also make the wearer feel significantly more restricted and limits their ability to move their arms independently. This particular model is made of high quality vegan leather. It’s malleable enough to feel comfortable and secure around your arms but also firm enough to feel quite restrained. They look great, and allow for a lot of different positions (because of the adjustability), and the overall price and quality make for a product available at good value.

I love the concept of this Sportsheets Under the Bed Restraint System. This way you can explore full body bondage without too much fuss. It’s easy to set up, easy to put away and clean, and it’s ideal to bring with you on trips!  The design is super adjsutable, which makes it versatile, more widely accessible and just very easy to use. One thing I will say, is that this system is probably not suitable for super heavy duty bondage. If you already know that you’re going to be needing something that is super durable, then you might want to level up to another product.

What to Look for in Handcuffs for Sex

Okay, so the task of finding the very best handcuffs for sex can be overwhelming. There are so many different types and designs to choose from. So, let’s go over some of the main features, I think you should look for when trying to find your new favorite pair.


MAterials - What to Look for in Handcuffs for Sex
Of course, handcuffs for sex in different materials are meant to provide you with different sensations. A lot of that is up to your personal preference, but as a bare mininum, you should make sure that the materials that your cuffs are made of (especially on the inside) will not irritate your skin or cause an allergic reaction. Perhaps you should also consider whether or not you can handcuffs for se that are easy to clean throughly, like the Quickie Cuffs, or you would rather have that leather-buckle look but then only be able to wipe down the material to clean it.


Adjustability - What to Look for in Handcuffs for Sex
This might not be the case for everyone, but I always think it’s a good idea to find handcuffs for sex that are adjustable. Not only that but that they also should be highly adjustable and accessible for a lot of different sized wrists. Velcro will often provide good adjustability but less security. Cuffs with buckles and plenty of holes for adjustability can provide both lots of restraint and accessibility.

Flexible coupling points

You might want to pay attention to the connector between the two cuffs. Is is a metal chain? Is is rope? Silicone? How long is it and how sturdy? Is it removable? You will most likely want the coupling point between your cuffs to be flexible, removable, and long or short enough for the level of restraint you want.

Good locks and extra keys

Good locks and extra keys - What to Look for in Handcuffs for Sex
If you’re looking for handcuffs with a lock, you’ll definitely want to avoid all the flimsy locks that will break as soon as you tug on it.  You want to look for something with a durable lock and preferably with 2 keys included. It’s always good to have an extra key for all of your lockable bondage gear! Additionally, you might see the enefit in having your handcuff keys look slightly different from any other keys you have. A unique design may help you get to the right one if you in a pinch.

Attachment potential

Whether you find it on the flexible coupling point or on D-rings on the handcuffs themselves, you might want to look for some fastening points on your handcuffs for sex where you can add some other kinky attachments, like nipple clamps with chains, BDSM collars, or other types of sexual restraints.

Can You Make Your Own Bondage Cuffs?

That depends on your definition of the word “make”. If you are a diligent and talented seamstress, then yes, there are multiple patterns online that teach you how to DIY your own bondage cuffs. However, if you are hoping to convert something you already own into usable cuffs, it gets a bit trickier. One of the main problems you need to consider is that some fabric is not so grippy on itself, so it could tighten uncomfortably during playtime. For example, silk scarves tend to slip, which could be pretty dangerous.

Sew Your Own

Sew Your Own - Can You Make Your Own Bondage Cuffs?
This option is probably the easiest that will still allow for some quality, professional-looking cuffs. There are many patterns and tutorials online that you can check out, but basically, you will need to measure your wrists and then cut out the correct length from your chosen fabric. You will also need to decide if you want buckles, velcro, buttons etc

Silk Ties

Silk Ties - Can You Make Your Own Bondage Cuffs?
If one of you has a silk tie lying around this can be a fun and sensual option to DIY bondage. However, as mentioned, silk tends to slip and can get dangerously tight, so keep in communication with your partner and ensure that you have safety scissors nearby if necessary.


Rope - Can You Make Your Own Bondage Cuffs?
This is perhaps the safest and easiest option. Rope’s coarse texture allows it to cinch against itself, so you can safely and securely bind your sub’s wrists, ankles etc. However, we suggest that you keep those scissors handy, just in case.


Belts - Can You Make Your Own Bondage Cuffs?
If you enjoy the aesthetic and sensation of leather and metal buckles, then a modified belt could work for you. You will either have to punch a new hole in your belt after measuring your wrists or ankles, or you can try to wrap the belt around your sub’s limbs until you can line the buckle with a hole. This can be fiddly and can also lead to loose binding that your sub might wriggle out of.

What to Consider When Buying Bondage Cuffs 

Bondage cuffs themselves are fairly straightforward items, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t a few things you should consider before deciding on a set. Keep these specifications in mind while searching so you can get the perfect cuffs for you the first time!
  • Size – Many bondage cuffs are adjustable, but that doesn’t mean they’ll fit everyone. You should make sure your wrists will fit into the cuffs by measuring them and comparing your measurements to the manufacturer’s specifications. If you’re planning on using cuffs on your ankles then you’ll want to measure those as well. Although it’s possible to find a pair that will fit both, you might find having two pairs is more exciting!
  • Material – This comes down to personal preference. Remember, the material you choose will be restraining your wrists so if you prefer a more “gentle” experience, metal might not be the best choice. Fortunately, there are plenty of softer materials like silicone, leather, or faux leather to choose from! The material used will also control the amount of “give” your cuffs have so it’s definitely a factor putting some thought into.
  • Fastening – How rough are you planning to be in these cuffs? If you’re mainly planning on using them for some light bondage with your partner then stretchy silicone cuffs could be a suitable option. For a more secure fit, velcro straps or ropes are an option. However, if you want to be unable to remove the cuffs yourself, we’d recommend considering cuffs with belt-style straps or metal handcuffs. If you want the look & feel of handcuffs without the inability to remove them yourself (or if you’re worried about your partner losing the key!), don’t worry: most BDSM handcuffs have a safety lever!
  • Lockable – As we mentioned above, most bondage handcuffs have a safety lever that can be used in case you lose the key or want to remove the cuffs yourself. For some people, the ability to remove the cuffs themselves might take away from the experience. If that’s the case, you may need to look for “professional grade” handcuffs. That said, bear in mind that “real” handcuffs won’t be removable without a key, which means you cannot lose the keys!

How to use handcuffs for sex

Each cuff works slightly differently, depending on the fastening mechanism but there are some common guidelines to follow to make using your cuffs simple, safe, and sexy!

Test them first

Test them first

Both partners should familiarise themselves with the fastening/ release mechanisms before using the handcuffs for sex. This is especially important for locking cuffs.

Put the cuffs on

Put the cuffs on

Place your partner’s cuffs inside the cuffs and adjust so that the cuffs are tight enough that they don’t fall off but not so tight they will interfere with circulation. If you are using rope, tape, or fabric handcuffs, you should be able to insert a couple of fingers between your partner’s wrists and the handcuffs.



Once you have the cuffs on and your partner in position, it’s time to play!

How to clean your handcuffs for sex

Different handcuffs will have different cleaning instructions, depending on what material they are made of. Most solid cuffs can be wiped down to keep them clean. If you have fabric cuffs, you might be able to wash them in the washing machine, but always check the manufacturer's instructions first.


You should always shop at a reputable, trusted sex toy store to make sure you are getting safe handcuffs for sex. We only work with stores we trust so you can shop safely using any of the links in this post!

No, they shouldn't hurt you beyond your stated limits. The aim of the game with bondage cuffs is to keep you restrained and held. The restraints are often firm and unforgiving but the materials they are made of often allow for comfort. You want to enjoy yourself after all! If you feel any pain or discomfort then stop immediately and let your dom know.

Handcuffs can be used to tie your partner to the bed or other furniture, to limit the use of their arms and hands, or combined with other types of restraints for all kinds of bondage play. Usually, they are combined with other sexual activities such as intercourse or outercourse.

Anyone! If you and your partner want to try bondage cuffs, then go for it! As long as you communicate with each other and understand each other’s limits then you should be absolutely fine. Keep it safe and have fun!

Purpose made handcuffs for sex are the safest option, but if you don't have access to that, you can make some handcuffs using a belt or some scarves. Just be careful when using fabric or scarves, especially if it is silky, as this can tighten by itself. Always make sure your restraints are loose enough that they don't interfere with your circulation.

It depends on the product. Most bondage cuffs with Velcro fasteners, buckles, or pull ties are adjustable. If you want an adjustable one, don't forget to do some research about the product you are eyeing before buying.

Handcuffs for sex are often used to explore power play. They help to create a feeling of submission, as the person wearing them has some of their power taken away from them and put in the hands of their partner. They also prevent the person from pleasuring themselves or their partner using their hands, meaning they have to use other means or rely on their partner.

Yes! They are all tried and tested before they are safe for use! All products go through rigorous testing before they are produced en mass, and you can be assured that everything is body-safe as can be! You can also read through the product's reviews to see real-life experiences with the cuffs.

What are handcuffs for sex?

Handcuffs for sex are restraints that are worn over the wrists or sometimes the ankles. They can be used to bind a person's wrists together behind their back or above their head, limiting their movement or preventing them for pleasuring themselves or they can be used to restrain someone in a certain position or location while you tease them! Handcuffs are often the first bondage tool people experiment with, but they are used by beginners and advanced bondage players alike!
