Self Bondage for Beginners
New to self bondage? Don’t worry you have to start somewhere and it is better to do it right than to do it wrong and be stuck in self bondage.
Self Bondage for Beginners
For those who don’t know what self bondage is, it is tying yourself up. People do this for different reasons, most people do this because they have this desire to be tied up and for whatever reason they tie themselves up rather than getting someone else to tie them up (which is perfectly fine, don't worry).
If you are new to self bondage and know what it is then you need to work out what you like. For example: do you like being tied up with rope, metal cuffs or leather cuffs and if you like: pain, pleasure or discomfort. Once you have worked out what do and don’t like you can then plan out your self bondage session.
For example if you like leather cuffs then you would need a release mechanism that is applicable to getting tied up using leather cuffs. I’d say the safest way to get the key for the cuffs would be the ice release (below is a couple of links that explain each release mechanism). Please note leather and metal cuffs use the same release mechanism as they both use keys, it is the feel of the cuffs that makes them different.

Out of the five selected I would say the ice release and the can release is the two safest and easiest release mechanisms for self bondage because it is pretty hard for it to muck up.
However if you liked rope more than cuffs then you need to have strong scissors or a knife as a release mechanism, most people will have the scissors within reach at all times during self bondage with rope, so it is harder to do strict (waiting for release) self bondage with rope. One of the main reasons people don’t use a release mechanism with scissors or a knife is because a lot of them involve the scissors or the knife hanging from somewhere and if something goes wrong the scissors or the knife could cut you real deep and in the end you could die from a loss of blood.
This is not meant to scare you out of doing self bondage but rather show you that self bondage can turn from innocent fun into a life threatening situation in seconds if not done correctly. That is why you have to plan self bondage sessions careful no matter how many times you have done it or how experienced you think you are.
Now that we have gone over self bondage release mechanisms we can look at how to enhance the self bondage session. The three main things that I will be covering will be: pain, discomfort and pleasure.
If you are the sort of person who needs pain in their self bondage then you need to remember that if this is your first time your body will ache from the bondage. So I suggest that you stay away from pain till your body gets used to the bondage and you get used to not being able to move or have limited movement.
A good and very common way to add some pain to your self bondage is put a pair of nipple clamps on your nipples (this can be done by both males and females) but please be careful as skin can rip.
Another way you could add pain is to get tape and uncooked rice, you then add some of the rice to the tape and place the tape over a part of your body. When pressure is applied to that area the rice starts to hurt. To increase the pain place it over knees and elbows.

Most of the discomfort you get from self bondage will depend on the position of your self bondage but to add more discomfort you have to be careful so you don’t over do it and create any unwanted pain for yourself.
The hogtie for example, when done badly can cause serious discomfort, numbing limbs and blood not being able to get to where it should. When done correctly it is extremely restrictive in movement and you get this awesome feeling as you realize you can’t even move till the release kicks in.
Pleasure in self bondage can be created in a number of different ways, a very common way to increase pleasure in self bondage is to just a vibrator to your private bits (whether you are a male or a female).
However this is when pain and pleasure can become a blurred line if you are into pain as that would be a sort of pleasure, you have to try out what you do and don't like.
