Back in April 2012 I placed my first order with EdenFantasys, an online sex shop. I bought three products: a Mini Magic wand, the Studio Collection Sexy Secrets Compact with Bullet and a Leather hog tie.
The manufacturer of this leather hog tie is Kinklab. The hog tie is made of food-grade material, is latex free, non-porous and phthalates free. Food-grade material means that when the material comes in direct contact with food, it would not contaminate the food with harmful substances. This of course does not mean that you can consume the material of which the hog tie is made! Phthalates or phthalate esters are added to plastics to increase the flexibility, transparency, durability and longevity (source Wikipedia).
The hog tie can be used to bind the wrists and the ankles behind the back, but also to tie them together in front or to tie the hands to a collar or even the feet to a collar. I think the most common use for these though would be to tie hands and feet behind the back.
The straps on the red leather hog tie are thick and made of a sturdy leather, but they are strong and flexible. The leather straps and the hooks on the straps are heavy duty and the thick O-ring in the middle seems unbreakable.
It has taken quite some time for us to use the leather hog tie, due to some health issues on my side. About three weeks ago my Husband tied leather cuffs around my wrists and ankles and ordered me to lie down on the bed, on my stomach. He told me that I should find a comfortable spot, because soon I would not be able to move. I had no idea what He was planning to do, until I heard steel on steel. Adrenaline rushed through my body as I wondered whether He was going to hog tie me and even though I soon realized that I could barely move with my hands and legs tied together behind me, I felt ecstatic.
Unfortunately the red leather hog tie of Kinklab has been discontinued at EdenFantasys. However, they do have two other products that replaced this item. Both those products are from the manufacturer Sportsheets. The one is called Hog tied – restraints and the other is 5-piece hogtie & cuff set – restraints. There are very little differences between these two products. Both are black, both are made of leather and both have cuffs on them with Velcro closings. The Velcro cuffs can be unhooked from the central piece of the hog tie, which make it possible to use the hog tie with other cuffs too.
On the two black hog ties, the leather straps running from the O-ring in the center are shorter than the red leather hog tie that I have bought from EdenFantasys. On the red hog tie the metal clips are attached to the rings on the ends of each of the straps. The short straps on the black hog ties end in O-rings and metal clips on cuffs can be attached to these rings. The cuffs that come with the black hog ties all have metal clips on them. Just like the red leather hog tie, the black ones are made of food-grade material, is latex free, non-porous and phthalates free. It’s a pity that the red leather hog tie is not available anymore, but reading the reviews on the black hog ties, they seem to be of the same high quality.
Being restrained in such a manner that you have to subject yourself to whatever is going to happen to you is exciting. There’s a lot of fun to be had with our red leather hog tie!
