The 8 Best Handcuffs – Guide

Handcuffs are popular utensils during sex because you have to blindly trust your partner and therefore completely relinquish control. Therefore, the use of handcuffs for couples is quite appealing. But also for a carnival disguise, the purchase can be quite useful. Nevertheless, some important things have to be considered, for example, when choosing the material.

In our checklist you will learn everything you need to know about the use of handcuffs. Maybe you can already make a first choice based on the product recommendations!

Checklist For Handcuffs

Design
  • Which design you finally decide on depends on the purpose of the handcuffs. If you only want to use the handcuffs as an accessory to your carnival costume, you can choose classic metal ones that look like the handcuffs used by the police.
  • However, there are also handcuffs made of leather, latex, or plush, which are mostly used for bondage games. Handcuffs made of plush are well suited for beginners, as they are comfortable to wear. However, there are also special handcuffs for this purpose, which have an inner lining.
Use
  • Among other things, handcuffs can be used for sexual role-playing. Couples sometimes find it very arousing to be able to handcuff their partner and take control of what happens next. However, you should pay attention to your partner’s needs when using handcuffs. Only what both of you enjoy is allowed! Therefore, it makes sense to determine a previous code word with which the game can be ended immediately. Mostly these handcuffs can be locked or opened with a key. Therefore, the key should be kept in a safe place so that no problems occur after the role play. However, some handcuffs also have a click mechanism. So no frustration arises and you can fully turn to the game.
  • However, suitable handcuffs are also suitable for carnival costumes. These are usually not actively used, but instead serve as an accessory, for example, to perfect the police outfit.
Comfort And Safety
  • The handcuffs must be adjustable in size so that they do not rub or cause injuries. People who are sensitive to pain should therefore give priority to plush or satin handcuffs to prevent bruises. These are just as suitable for possible role-playing games.
  • Caution Depending on the position, limbs may “fall asleep” or blood flow may be obstructed, therefore circulatory problems may occur. Short stays, a certain range of motion, and/or frequent changes of position can counteract this. The restrained person should be restrained in front of the body. If things do get a bit wilder, the person concerned can then brace themselves in time to prevent falls.
Additional Functions
  • Meanwhile, even handcuffs with chains are offered. These offer much more freedom, so that the handcuffed person can still move around the room.

FAQ About Handcuffs

What are handcuffs?

Handcuffs are usually used by the police when arresting criminals in order to fix them at the wrist. However, handcuffs are now also used in recreational settings, for example, to perform sexual role-playing.

When are the police allowed to use handcuffs?

As a rule, the police strive to use coercive measures such as restraint and handcuffing as rarely as possible. However, it is important that the person cooperates and does not endanger others or himself. Officers can also protect themselves and their colleagues by using handcuffs.

What handcuffs for sex and BDSM?

The best known type of handcuffs is probably the classic form, which is mainly known by the police. However, for BDSM and sex games, these are only suitable to a limited extent (unless you want to play a police-themed role play, for example). The reason is that the material can lead to pain and injury, as it cannot be applied evenly to the wrists and is overall hard and not flexible. Therefore, leather or imitation leather handcuffs or cuffs are suitable for BDSM and sex games.

What are handcuffs used for?

Handcuffs are primarily used by the police to take away criminals. However, handcuffs are now also popular for carnival costumes or sexual role-playing.

How can handcuffs be opened?

Handcuffs often have a key with which they can be opened. However, some specimens also have a click mechanism, which can be used relatively easily.

How do handcuffs feel on the skin?

Handcuffs fit tightly against the skin and can therefore rub or chafe. Therefore, you should make sure that the handcuffs are adjustable in size, so that you do not have pain in your wrist afterwards.

What material are handcuffs made of?

Handcuffs come in a wide variety of colors and designs. Among other things, they are usually made of leather, metal, plush or even satin.
