Bondage, blindfolds, and human furniture

Once upon a time, bondage was the bread and butter of our kink. That, and blindfolds. We didn’t classify either as BDSM, mostly because we didn’t know what BDSM was, at least not beyond the mainstream media of the 80’s and 90’s – which presented BDSM as the sign of an unhealthy mind. With the invention and spread of the internet all information has been made readily available! Lucky for us, that bad press never scared us. We stocked our drawers with all sorts of goodies, most of which now would be considered pervertables – homemade items used for sex and kink.

Bondage was so key to us, we had long, rope-like scarves tied to our bed posts full time. The scarves worked a lot like those bed restraint systems that allow you to tuck the straps back under the mattress, out of sight from inquiring eyes (usually children). When in use, each limb gets tied toward a corner of the bed, spread eagle style. Mr.R would tie me up, and eat my pussy for hours – or at least it seemed hours. “I can eat a peach for hours,” he would to say to me, grinning. That was also our first playing at orgasm control; forced and denial – though we didn’t know that.

Our bed had four low cut posts with cross bars, all wooden, so the scarves could hang out of sight. Once, however, we moved and forgot to take them off. It turned into an interesting conversation with some of Mr.R’s friends when they helped us load and unload the furniture. … Or should I say a bragging session for Mr.R. But, boys will be boys. 🙂 Not that it bothered me. I never excused our kinks, nor was I embarrassed by them. I was, however, shocked when I found out not everyone did these things.

I can still recall a good friend’s horrified look at me when I was shocked she didn’t and had never used a blindfold at 30-some years old. We had already wore out more than one, pervertablized many other things, and were on the hunt for a better product. How could someone not want to wear a blindfold? She was nervous. It was so basic to me that it never occured to me how much trust you had to have with your partner in order to do that.

Our use of bondage has grown since then. I no longer care for the bound spread eagle position. There’s not anything specifically wrong with it. We’ve just explored it enough. Now, I prefer Master to have a little more … shall we say – access, more control. 

Our bondage equipment consists mostly of leather, pervertables, and store bought systems, some with velcro. I’m super in love with some of the glamorous looking kits you can find on Etsy, especially by S39Gallery, like this beauty. However, when you add up the whole set it gets into the $200-300 range. It’s absolutely beautiful! 😍

Plus, their photos are fucking hot!

I’m sure that’s half my temptation. Hmmm… maybe more.

Mr.R and I have recently begun ‘upping’ our honor bondage. Honor bondage, simply put, is being told to ‘stay’ by your top, and then doing it. Kinkly has a definition, as per usual, but in this case I think their definition leaves a little to be desired. While honor bondage is, as they say, when “the submissive captive is encouraged to hold a determined position using only his or her own willpower,” the examples they give are minimal, and do not capture the essence or best use of honor bondage. Besides just keeping your hands in place, or pretending they are bound together, honor bondage can be assuming a kinky pose with which to be played, staying as told while the top leaves, prepares kinky equipment, or commits other erotic acts in front of the bottom. It can also be human art or human furniture.

Human furniture\art is when a bottom is told to assume a position in the form of – you guessed it – art or furniture. The two aren’t very different, furniture is obviously functional, while art is just a pose that is interesting or beautiful to look at. The challenge is to stay there until released, which will eventually get difficult and probably uncomfortable. The kinkiness of it is in the domination, the erotic humiliation and objectification. It can be quite fun. 🙂 Other things can also be layered in, touching, playing, funishment – especially when given a ask you are destined to fail at. The limits are only within your kinky desires and imagination.

I will leave you with this super sexy photo from wikipedia, which – in my opinion – is one of the best illustrations of human furniture. And super high on my kinky pleasure list. 🙂

  1. That is a stunning bondage set! Honour bondage, or verbal/mental bondage I refer to it as is very powerful and presents a deeper challenge I think, for me anyway! Great post minnie, thanks for sharing x

  2. This is a great post and a lot of what you have written about appeals to me too. Mental bondage is something we do quite a bit and I do find the objectification of being furnture hot although we haven’t done much with it yet. Thank you 🙂
