Bondage Bow Review

When we received the brand new Bondage Bow from Rare Assembly – we really wanted to give people an idea of what it could do and how it could improve sex lives, so who better to turn to than our ever adventurous Facebook pair, Caroline and Chris, who have great experience of putting adult paraphernalia through it’s paces, so we caught up with them to see how they got on.

Caroline: From the beginning we were excited about receiving the Bondage Bow as it was something we felt was different from other things we had tried in the past. A lot had been made about the presentation of the bow and along with Sh! own presentation style it lived up to the promise. The bow looked divine and rather sensual and in it’s clear packaging, really, very decorative and not unlike a corsage.

Chris: As an item of pleasure for a long time Bondage Tape has been a staple item in our collection and something I’ve recommended to others over the years and so were intrigued so see how it would compare.

How to use the Bondage Bow?

Caroline: First off, I was really impressed that it didn’t in anyway smell of latex, the smell we’ve become accustomed to these days with sex toys. We have put the Bow to good use a number of times as it is so versatile.

Chris: For clarity, Caroline has put the Bow to good use having been on the receiving end of it most of the time.

Caroline: Truly, very guilty – what can I say! At first we tried some

soft play as Chris bound my hands before exploring me. It kept my hands tightly together, I couldn’t struggle even if I had wanted to. What I really enjoyed was the softness of the bow mixed in with how tight it could hold me, the contrast between feelings played on me well.

Chris: Being the restrainer, I really liked that there was so much length to play around with, I could fully bind Caroline’s hands and still have enough left to attach something else, like the bed post.

Caroline: Restrainer? Is that a real thing? Anyway, pushing things further, as we like to do, the next time I allowed him to tie ankles to my hands whilst laying on my back which was rather divine and left me feeling naked and rather vulnerable which is a good thing, especially when you’re with someone you trust. The other great thing I noticed was that sometimes my skin is sensitive to the touch and can find handcuffs or rope a bit too heavy on my skin but the Bow provided the right touch.

Chris: It was quite easy to tie too and it had a little bit of give in it meaning you could stretch it a little to give you a good purchase on the knotting.

 

What else did you enjoy about the Bondage Bow?

Chris: There is so much you can do with this Bow! It really did have us thinking beyond our usual boundaries and using our imaginations from strange places we could attach each other to, to positions we could tie each in or even together.

Caroline: Like some kind game of kinky Twister. Plus then there was the other things you could do with it like the spankings that could be dished out.

 

Who can use the Bondage Bow?

Caroline: The Bondage Bow would be great for a number of people, initially and importantly anyone tentative but inquisitive about restraint or kink play as it would provide a great introduction to the ways of being able to enjoy it without getting into anything heavy, but also give them lots of room to explore other avenues such as using it as a whip, without having to pay out a great amount of money.

Chris: Of course anyone who enjoys soft bondage play is looking for an excuse to add this to their box of tricks right now. What I can say is that it does add something different, new sense of feeling between restraint and soft material but also versatility that many other ties don’t have.

 

How does The Bondage Bow compare to Bondage Tape?

Chris: On the face of it, there is a number of similarities including versatility but they are versatile in different ways for example the tape can stick to itself but the Bow is able to be used as a whip, which the tape can’t.

Caroline: It’s also very discreet, we love having the Tape hidden around the house for just when and where we need it but the Bow is even more discreet. You can literally leave it anywhere without raising any suspicions. Having a number of these hidden around your home for just the right occasion for spicing up a quickie, impromptu bondage session or planning something
knowing exactly where it is. My imagination is working overtime right now.

Chris: The other great thing with the Bow is that there less mess than the tape.

 

Any Downsides to the Bondage Bow?

Caroline: The only thing I would say is that if you enjoy the more kinkier side of restraint and bondage then you may want something harder such as the Sh! Satin Ties with D-Rings although I can definitely see everyone enjoying the idea of being able to use a restraint as a whip. As for the product itself Rare Assembly have done a fantastic job, including the overall design. However, the only thing I would like is it for to be a little wider.

 

Summary

Caroline: I would love to give this to someone attached to the top of a present as an alternative to the usual bows. Not only does it look the part but it’s also got a great use, a lover or friend, a cheeky topper on a Hen Night gift or even a wedding present, you’ll be in someone’s good books.

Chris: Value for money-wise, it’s a fantastic product and allows you to really use your imagination and push your fantasies. Whether you’re new to sex toys or an old hand, you’ll find this brings a fresh new twist to your sexual exploration, coupling it up with a blindfold could really ramp up the stakes. Meanwhile, if I ever get a go we’ll get back to you.

Caroline: We won’t be getting back to you.

 

Chris is a Sex and Relationship Mentor and along with Caroline they are well experience at reviewing sex toys and other such products over the years. You can catch up with Chris at his website which is due to launch soon which houses a number of sex positive and mentoring projects.
