5 Best Sex Bed Straps for Sexual Restraining

   Isabelle Uren
I can say without a doubt, my bed restraints are by far my most-used restraints, and I want to help you find the perfect sex straps for you! As well as my favorite set from Sportsheets, I’ve compiled a list of the best sex bed straps tested by our review team. Most are relatively beginner-friendly but I’ve also included a more advanced set for those who crave a bit more from their bondage!

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I love these bed restraints. Ever since I got them, they’ve been a permanent fixture on my bed, ready to go anytime the moment strikes! I really appreciate the plain black design as I much prefer something simple and unobtrusive. It’s also great that they simply tuck under the mattress when not in use. I’ve worn these for extended sessions and been extremely comfortable in them. I’ve found them mostly secure, although the attachment straps can move around slightly if you squirm a lot. For regular restraints, I tend to prefer buckles over velcro, but in this case, I actually really like it because it’s so quick to get the cuffs on. I also love the moment my partner tightens the straps… that’s when the real fun begins!

At under $30, these have to be some of the cheapest bed restraints they are! While I wouldn’t say they are the strongest, they certainly get the job done! Although our reviewer, Moe, and his partner hadn’t really explored bondage before, they found it “a lot of fun trying new things.” He also commented that “It didn’t take very long for [him] to be comfortable with being lightly bound.” He liked that the “soft cuffs are functional, comfortable, and close with simple hook-and-loop.” I would say this is makes this a very beginner-friendly set. Although he said the blindfold felt a little cheap, he was surprised by how the “inability to anticipate where she was going next made each touch sizzle.” The main difference between these sex straps and the others in the review is that you need to tie them to restraint points, like a bed frame. While I like that this makes them more versatile (you can tie them to anything you like), it does mean they take a little more time to set up each time.

I think the silver design and velcro cuffs of the Fifty Shades of Grey Hard Limits Bed Restraints make them a great, un-intimidating beginner bed restraints set! Our tester Rachel, who describes herself as a bondage beginner also agrees! She tested them out with her partner and found them to be “a fantastic introduction to the world of full-body restraint.” She loved that the set is “relatively easy to install” and “strapping someone into the restraints is also very easy.” However, she also noted that on their slightly bigger than queen size bed, the straps “were extended almost to their longest point” but still worked comfortably. This is worth keeping in mind if your bed is bigger than queen size. While she enjoyed using the set, Rachel “would have preferred plain black” restraints, and I have to say I agree. The silver design isn’t for me, but that really is a matter of preference!

I chose to include the DOMINIX Deluxe Leather Under Mattress Restraints as it’s high quality restraint set that’s more suitable to advanced or heavy duty bondage. The leather buckling cuffs are more secure and require a higher level of trust and vulnerability that’s more suited to those with some bondage experience. Britnee, tested them out for us and “absolutely loved adding this to play time,” commenting that they will “will definitely use it again!” She loved that the bed restraints were “easy to assemble, versatile, and portable” and that the “soft leather of the cuffs were comfortable.” This set also stands out to me as being more versatile, and Britnee enjoyed that the multiple “rings and carabiners allow for many different positions.” The real consideration with these bed straps is that according to the Lovehoney website. it’s only designed to fit up to a double bed, which is limiting.

I think these are a great intermediate level set of bed restraints. They are still intimidating in design but the buckle fastenings give them a bit more security. Our tester, Cassie, “absolutely adore[d] the reversible feature in the cuff design” and really liked “the that the buckle fastenings on the cuffs make for a more advanced BDSM experience” compared to velcro. She was also impressed by “how easy it is to install, and how lightweight, portable, and versatile it is.” She was also impressed by the size inclusivity of the cuffs, commenting that she “really appreciate[d) the multiple levels of adjustability in the cuffs and the strap” The versatility of these sex straps also stood out as big pro as it has “four optional fastening points, two additional connecting chains” that give you more bondage opportunities than other sets. While Cassie was overall very happy with this bed restraint kit, she commented that the higher price felt a bit like “paying for the brand moreso than the value of the product.”

Types of Fastening Mechanisms on Sexual Restraints

The choice of fastening mechanism can drastically impact your BDSM experience. Again, some mechanisms are much ore suitable for beginners, while advanced users crave extreme solutions. Let’s compare the most common ones!


  • Pros: Ideal for beginners. Velcro restraints are easy to adjust and remove. Comfortable to wear.
  • Cons: May not provide a strong sense of restraint, less durable.


  • Pros: Buckles offer a higher level of security and stronger sense of restraint. Authentic BDSM aesthetic.
  • Cons: Can be difficult to adjust and remove in the moment, higher level of restraint can lead to potential discomfort.

Lock and Key

  • Pros: Provides a very strong sense of restraint, can add a psychological element of control.
  • Cons: Potential for accidental lock-ins, can be difficult to remove quickly.

Under Mattress vs Over Mattress Restraints

When looking for some light bondag options that involve tying your partner down to the mattress, you have the option to retrain them above or below the mattress. Under-mattress systems are great since they can be used on any type of bed (even those without bedposts), whereas over mattress setups require bedposts or a bedframe to tie your BDSM restraints to. If you’re using ropes to tie up your partner, the process will be significantly more time-consuming than using under-the-mattress sex bed straps. However, some people enjoy learning and executing new types of knots! Also, by tying the restraints yourself, you will have more options to work with than you would from using a pre-made set of sex straps. Ultimately, which option you should choose depends on your bed & the level of time you’re willing to spend restraining your partner.

How to use sex bed straps

Sex bed straps are easy to use, perhaps, the most complicated part is to learn how to mount them on your bed, but once you figure it out, next time is going to be an easy cake. In any way, if you are finding trouble with this, I’m going to tell you how to use sex bed straps to take advantage and enjoy your experience!

Mount your sex bed straps

Mount your sex bed straps

Most of the sex bed straps come with instructions, it is not that is rocket science but when you can actually see the process it is faster, if you are one of the unlucky ones that got sex bed straps without instructions, as I said before, it is not rocket science, you can figure it out how to sort your problem but it will take more time, just ask yourself if you want to keep the sex bed straps attached to your bed for a lifetime or if you want to remove, so it is easy for you to remember how to unmount it and how to mount it again if you need to do so.

Gather everything you might need

Gather everything you might need

Having handy everything you need is useful so you don’t have to stop in the middle of the experience to try to find something, especially if you are not good at keeping your things in their place. Think about what you might need and ask your partner to be sure nothing is forgotten. Things like any kind of toys, lubricant, wet wipes, towels, paper, and any other thing that might be a tool for your experience are always nice to keep it close.

Set up rules and remember safe words

Set up rules and remember safe words

Rules are often important to make sure, no matter how excited you or your partner are, that there are some things that must not be done or certain limits that shouldn’t be trespassed. Safewords are important too and are an “on-time” sign that something it might not feel okay, is not feeling okay, or that the whole action should be stopped immediately. But what happens if you or your partner are using a ball gag? Well, you find a way to show the other you are not agreeing to do something or to keep going, snapping fingers, tapping something with your hand, even a peace and love sign can do the trick, the important part is to be safe in order to enjoy more.



Something that might add fun and enjoyment to your experience is to know who is going to be tied up and who doesn’t and if there is a chance to swap roles, which often is interesting. Speak about turns, roles, or any other idea that might add fun in order to know when it is okay to change and do totally differently.

Caring is good but showing it is even better.

Caring is good but showing it is even better.

After all the fun, caring about your partner is good in other to show there is respect and that nothing said or done was mean in any way to harm him/her. Even when your relationship could be merely to have fun or even a friendship it is very important to know the other you care about him/her in order to have a healthy and good relationship. If you are enjoying and your partner as well, it would be silly to end up your relationship just because of something small like this. Besides, who doesn’t love to have a lovely moment and be spoiled when both of you are cuddling and just post-enjoying.

How to clean sex bed straps

There is no big deal when it comes to cleaning your sex bed straps, mainly because it is unusual those get dirty, but if something messy happens, you can clean them out with warm water and regular clothing soap. You can use a small brush to brush it and let it dry. Try to avoid wetting the metallic parts of the sex bed straps; otherwise, you get the risk of getting those rusty. As usual, I will show you an infographic with a few tips on "how to clean" certain materials.


Absolutely. Most of them assure you are free of materials that commonly produce allergies, but overall al the materials are safe.

No, it shouldn't do! The aim of the game with bondage straps 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 check you're using it right!

Everyone who has confidence with his/her partner. Confidence is one of the keys to using sex bed straps, so if you have confidence with your partner and both agree and are willing to try sex bed straps then everything should work well.

Yes! They are all tried and tested THOROUGHLY 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!

As long as you and your partner want. Some of the sex bed straps come with cushions and a very comfortable wrist, so it would be fair to say that it is most likely easier for you to get tired and than uncomfortable.

Anyone! That one was easy! If you and your partner want to give bondage straps a go then just do 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!

Unfortunately, the correct answer here is the one that you like the most. I personally like the St. Andrews Cross.

Well, for as long as you and your partner want. Some are cushioned for comfort and offer levels of support, so they're good to go for as long as you are. The best thing to do is listen to your body - if it's telling you you're getting tired then give it a rest and come back to your bondage straps later.

Sex bed straps are ideal for beginners since they use adjustable straps, rather than requiring the user(s) to get good at tying knots. They can also be used with any mattress, meaning your options won’t be limited by your type of bed.

With a bit of creativity, nearly anything is possible! Since yoga straps are relatively stretchy but can easily be pulled taut, they can be used in a wide variety of ways to restrict your partner’s movements. Experiment to see what works best for you & your partner.

What are sex bed straps?

Sex bed straps are an easy and intelligent way to turn your bed into a BDSM playground. Sex bed straps are easy to mount/unmount and can be taken anywhere if you travel a lot, making them perfect for BDSM beginners. These systems provide 2 to 4 restraint points where the wrist and ankles can be held. They are a great option if you don't have a proper space to have this kind of fun or if you are traveling a lot. Sex bed straps are a must-have for persons who love BDSM as well as those who are just getting into it. Bondage straps allow you to restrain or be restrained. They could come in the form of simple hand cuffs or ankle cuffs, all the way up to full body restraints for sexy and powerfully pleasing positioning.

Available in a variety of designs and made from a wide selection of materials, there are bondage straps for people of all lifestyles, sexual deviances, and body types, making bondage both affordable & available to everyone.
