50 Shades of Grey Bondage Kits Explained

Bondage kits are a great way to get starting on your BDSM collection. Rather than going out an buying multiple toys and restraints, bondage kits tend to come with a collection of toys and tools to get you started. The Official Pleasure Collection contains two different 50 Shades bondage kits, each with their own specific purposes. Let’s have a look at these two sets to help you decide which is the better option for your budding BDSM stash!

50 shades bondage kit

50 Shades Beginner Bondage Kit

This bondage kit contain three very basic elements – a four piece set of restraints, a paddle, and a eye mask style blindfold. While the eye mask and blindfold are rather self explanatory, the restraints should be looked into a bit further.

These restraints are a double-sided satin ties with two D-rings sewn into the bottoms. This style of bondage restraint is very portable – you can use it on the bed, in a chair, outdoors – anywhere you wish to have your session. The D-ring system is easy to use, and anyone with this style of belt should be familiar on how to tighten and loosen this set of bondage ties.

This set is slightly more expensive than the other 50 Shades bondage kit, but does contain the spanking paddle.

50 Shades Bed Bondage Kit

While the 50 Shades Bed Bondage Kit contains one less item than the beginner bondage kit (no spanking paddle in this one), it is still a great kit for those who are building their BDSM collection.

This bondage kit is specifically made for the bed. Four cuffs are attached to a strapping system that is placed under the mattress. The weight of the mattress, as well as the submissive, keeps the bondage set from shifting while in use. The cuffs themselves are much more “heavy duty” than the satin ties system used in the Beginner Bondage Set, but are just as simple to attach and remove. The cuffs themselves are attached to the strap systems via clips, so they can actually be removed and used with other clip-and-ring systems such as spreader bars.

“I’ll agree to the fisting, but I’d really like to claim your ass, Anastasia. But we’ll wait for that. Besides, it’s not something we can give into,” he smirks at me. “Your ass will need training.”

“Training?” I whisper.

“Oh yes. It’ll need careful preparation.”

Fifty-Shades-of-Grey-Something-Forbidden-Butt-Plug-300x300So what exactly was Christian Grey talking about when he mentioned Ana’s ass needing training? Anal training is something a lot of submissives go through when they first enter the lifestyle. Some train their back side in order to be able to accept toys like butt plugs and dildos, while others like Ana look to be able to have anal intercourse with a penis with as minimal discomfort as possible.

The most basic tool needed by those going through anal training is proper lubrication. Which kind of lube you choose depends on a number of factors. If you are using silicone toys or latex condoms, you’ll need to use a water based lubricant as silicone lubes will break down the materials in those items. (For those looking to keep in the Fifty Shades theme – there is an official 50 Shades anal lube!) The up side to silicone lubricants is that they last longer and tend to be thicker. There are also anal lubricants that contain ingredients that help numb the anus, so discomfort is minimized – although this is not always the desired effect when doing anal training in a BDSM relationship!

The next part of anal training to take into account is what toys and tools you will be inserting. The key is to start very small and gradually work your way up as and when the trainee feels comfortable. Some couples bypass anal sex toys altogether and just use their fingers and penis to train the ass, while others use anal training kits that contain increasingly larger dildo sizes.

Some couples enjoy a cleaning ritual within their anal training. For some, this involved enemas and anal douches before starting the anal training session. While this isn’t completely necessary (unless you have recently suffered from any bowel issues like diarrhea or constipation), it does eliminate any concerns about possible messes.

It is also important to keep a few items for aftercare around. Going slow and steady with your anal training shouldn’t result in any tears or bleeding – just general discomfort after the fact. If you do find yourself with small tears after a particularly vigorous session, you can use baby wipes to clean the area to prevent any infection. Menstrual pads can be worn to prevent any blood from getting onto your clothes. This bleeding should not last more than an hour or, so. If it does, or you have an excessive amount of bleeding, you should consult a doctor.

The best advice when it comes to anal training – always maintain completely open communication to ensure that both the trainee and the trainer get the most out of the experience.

Glass Dildo Basics For Sex Toy Beginners

50 Shades Glass DildoGlass dildos like the Fifty Shades of Grey Glass Massage Wand are the hidden gems of the sex toy world. These elegant glass sex toys bring a number of qualities to the bedroom that you don’t get with your typical jelly or silicone sex toys. What is so great about glass dildos you say? Where are the best places to get glass sex toys? And what is temperature play anyway? The Pleasure Collection is there to give you all the details you need on this beautiful sex toy.

Most sex toys these days are made from jelly, plastic, or silicone. These materials are inexpensive, easy to source, and can last a few years if taken care of properly. They are your basic mass produced sex toy, and great for those who are just beginning to create their sex toy collection. Once you’ve established what kind of dildos, butt plugs and other insertion toys you like, you should start to look for longer lasting toys, like those made from glass.

Glass sex toys are durable (the ones from Touch of Glass have a lifetime warranty), hypoallergenic, and super easy to clean. Glass dildos are best for those who like a stiff toy – there’s no give with glass sex toys! While most glass sex toys are made for vaginal insertion, there are also glass butt plugs, glass ben wa balls, and even glass vibrators. Unlike many other types of sex toys, they can be used with either water based or silicone based lubricants. Glass dildos with flared bottoms can even be used in some O-ring based strapon harness sets.

Cleaning and caring for glass toys is very simple. Since they’re made from the same style of glass used for cookwear, they can be placed in the top wrack of your dishwasher for a complete clean and sterilization. If having your sex toys with your dishes isn’t too appealing of an idea, you can also wash them with warm soapy water, or a specially designed toy cleaner. Most glass sex toys come with a cloth sack to keep them in, and that’s how I store mine.

One great quality that glass sex toys have is that they can be heated up or cooled down for temperature play. Warming up or cooling glass dildos is a relatively simple process, and Fifty Shades Playroom has done a great job showing exactly how it’s done in their Temperature Play With A Glass Dildo post. (No, it’s not as simple as sticking it in the microwave or freezer!) Take the time to do it right for a new sensory play experience.

One thing to note about glass sex toys – there has been a serious flood of the market in the last few years with cheaper quality toys that are mass produced. These toys are made from lesser quality glass, and don’t have the hand-crafted attention to detail that other retailers have. Glass dildos are one of those sex toys that I tend to pay a bit more for from retailers I know have hand crafted and high quality products. After all, this is my vagina’s care we are talking about!

Ben Wa Ball Basics for Beginners

50 Shades ben wa ballsThanks to Ana’s innocence and Christian’s Grey’s forward thinking, ben wa balls have become one of the most popular sex toys featured in the 50 Shades novels. Two innocent spheres, some with cords and some without, are inserted into the vagina for an intense sensory experience. But how do ben wa balls work? What makes the Fifty Shades ben wa balls different than your standard issue ones? And how do you get ben wa balls out if you are using the style without retrieval cords? The Pleasure Collection is here to answer your questions!

In a nutshell, ben wa balls (also known as love balls,pleasure balls and duotone balls) are a pair of spheres that are inserted into a woman’s vagina. For sexual stimulation, ben wa balls move around slightly, causing a woman’s inner muscles to contract around the balls. Some love the “full” feeling that ben wa balls can give, while others enjoy that slight feeling of movement. For a number of women, this is as much as they can handle. A few more adventurous women keep them in while having sex!

benwa balls

Ben wa balls can also be used for exercising your more intimate areas. The pelvic floor muscles that ben wa balls stimulate inside the vagina are the same muscles that surround a penis during intercourse. Tightening these muscles through exercise can help create a tighter feeling. They also help with bladder control, as all these muscles are interconnected.

Before using your ben wa balls for the first time, it’s important to be sure that both the balls and your hands are thoroughly washed with soap and water. We also suggest you use the bathroom before you start your play session. Insert one ball at a time, using a bit of water based lubricant if you need the additional moisture. If you’ve ever inserted a non-applicator tampon, the process is quite the same. Once they are in, close your legs and tighten your body around the balls to set them in place. Most ladies start off by wearing their ben wa balls for only a few minutes at a time, increasing the duration as they become more used to them.

Most pleasure balls come in sets of two unconnected balls. These are the traditional style, but aren’t the preferred type for beginners. The 50 Shades ben wa balls are a slightly different style, with the two balls being connected by either a silicone shell or a retrieval cord. The 50 Shades love balls are as easy to remove as pulling out a tampon.

If you are using the unconnected love balls, there are two methods you can use to remove them. One is inserting a clean index and middle finger into your vagina, hooking them around the ball, and slowly pulling them out one at a time. Other women prefer to bear down with their PC muscles and push the balls out, similar to having a bowel movement. Most women use a combination of the two. Its important not to go into “panic mode” when trying to remove benwa balls. You can’t “lose” ben wa balls internally, as there is only one way in and out of that part of the anatomy. The more you relax, the further down the ben wa balls will descend, and the easier they will be to retrieve.
