DIY BDSM – Part 1 (Save Money – get better experience)

I used to have a blog a long time ago on DIY BDSM. This was at a point where I regularly mentored up and coming doms and subs. I had even delivered such teaching in group settings and even at events. I will re-create some of that now in a series.

Lube – Stop buying this!

Most Lubes you can get from an adult store are petroleum based. Meaning that $17 10oz bottle you got is DESIGNED to wear out and need re-application frequently. Want to get the most from lubrication? – two choices are best

  1. Something you will find in most kitchens – Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Will keep you slippery for hours and hypo-allergenic.
  2. Best option – Organic Coconut Oil. You can find it easily online or from your local organic food store. It looks solid and feels solid when you scoop some out with your fingers, but start rubbing it in your hands and the warmth melts it into the most wonderfully slippery substance that will last a really really long time. It also makes the best sounds of slipperiness on the planet along with it being really great for your skin. I live in state where there is little humidity, Coconut oil prevents that. It is also good to lather on a body before rope or hard leather bondage.

Under the bed restraints systems. PASS!

OMFG – 5 years ago you would pay almost $100 for the same cheap-ass Velcro systems you can now get for $20-$60. Amazon has helped a ton in bringing down the costs – however – almost all of these fail for intense activity – and the cheap Velcro wouldn’t hold a sub of mine. Simple solution?  Cargo Tie Down straps! Yes – the things you use to lock down cargo on top of your car or in the back of your pickup. There are way more durable, come in any color now (versus 5 years ago when it was all fluorescent orange), Run average $10-$20, and hold TIGHT.  I personally like the ones with crank tighteners, as the sound of the latching down and tightening is an extra auditory excitement for a sub. Added safety of quick release is a bonus as well. “Be smart, shop S-Mart.”

Bondage Cuffs – My favorite secret

If functionality is your need over aesthetics, I can give you great value at a fraction of the cost. Additionally – quality of my solution will outlast any amount of play and will eliminate chaffing and other common problems with most adult store bought cuffs. (Including extended use and the occasional “dye” rubbing off onto the skin from cheap colored leather cuffs).

Solution: Search for “Ankle Cuffs for Cable Machine”.  Yes – thank you Fitness Industry for this commercial grade product. You will find cuffs (good for all four extremities) at a better cost and so so so much better quality. A personal favorite brand of mine is Harbinger with soft sheeps wool inside of the well crafted commercial use cuff. It will never break and never mark and keep your sub oh so lovingly restrained and – for about $24 (at the high end) , you will have a set of four that will last many lifetimes.

Adult Baby Diapers – Re-Taping

Nothing is more disappointing in ABDL then cheap tape or tape that no longer sticks (usually because you touched the sticky part with greased fingers). This Daddy’s easy solution (and oh so Wicked fun) – Duct Tape. Oh yes – simple Duct tape. Additionally – Duct tape now comes in every color and even prints like animal or cartoon characters. Duct tape – always have some handy. If my Little is Bratty, I wrap it once all the way around for best results. No pouting Little One!

More to come in part 2 soon – if you have some DIY BDSM tips yourself, please add a comment – if you have a question on how to find best value for ANY adult product – send me a message and I will address in next part.
