Trying to run a professional dungeon and respect my “Consensual Cruelty” ethic can be challenging. It’s difficult to get high-quality gear that is not made of cow skin — but not impossible. (They’re making impressive advances in faux leather. Some feels like the real thing.)
I saw this straitjacket and decided to give it a try:
It has a nice weight. Not as heavy as leather, but satisfying. The leatherette is the soft, supple, buttery kind, so it feels very nice. And it’s lined, so that’s a plus.
It seems to be able to accommodate a 42″ chest/36″ waist/~20″ biceps and still close it. The straps allow to expand out beyond that, so I can probably fit someone larger.
Looking forward to trying this out with some of you…
It’s stainless steel (which I love) and says it can be used for chastity. I’m not sure how that actually would execute for long term wear, but it could be hot. My interest was in using it as a CBT device.
Monkey Dick told me he had his eye on a CBT device and proposed that he send me the money to get it for our sessions. I said yes. While he was at it, he sent extra for me to get something else I wanted. I decided to buy more things for CBT (one of my favorite activities).
I chose more stainless steel because I find stainless steel incredibly sexy.
(It’s also able to be sterilized so you don’t catch any nasties.)
Clockwise from left:
a parachute (I need a replacement), which came with a cute little bucket that I can put things in and laugh as your balls get pulled lower and lower
a ball stretcher with spiked press
a ball sheath with spiked interior
a two-row Kali’s teeth (I have 2 different four-row varieties so I thought this would be a nice addition to my collection)
a cock ring with an o-ring
This is what lies below in the stretcher:
I can stretch you out and then raise up those spikes if I don’t like how you’re behaving. Or just because I love to impale your nuts.
Thank you, Monkey Dick! I look forward to fucking you up in the near future!
I placed an order with Claire of SoCal-based Heresy last week and it arrived today:
Two twin beaters, two small vinyl whips, and two loop beaters.
I wanted more smaller items for genital play and other instances in which I want a smaller area of impact or I’m in close proximity to my victi–I mean, play partner.
I’ve ordered from Claire before and have always been really happy with everything. Claire has fantastic attention to detail, a steal for what you’re getting, and is very professional to deal with. Highly recommended!
I decided to get the upgraded pack which included the Ganzframes (middle top). They have a silicone shield which is designed to keep all light out. I know this will be much more effective to reduce any visual distractions than the other frames, which look like dudebro sunglasses (right).
I would like to incorporate this device into sessions where someone is looking for (or open to) a different kind of head trip. The most obvious way would be to combine it with sensory play. That combined with the audio/visual elements of the device could help produce really HOT and powerful experiences.
I’m going to experiment with it Myself before I add it to My interests page and introduce it into a session.
UPDATE: I just tried one of the programs. It was to slow heart rate and breathing. Very cool! Really looking forward to checking all of them out — and making My own.
As those of you who’ve sessioned with Me know, I have been using a modest, though very pretty, chair as My “throne”. Though I’ve had opportunities to buy something more stately, I always preferred to divert funds into gear and toys for Temenos. A throne was not high on My priorities.
Back in October, slave john expressed an interest in changing this. Obviously, he believed I deserved something better than My current chair. *grin*
In November, he provided a cash gift for an upgrade.
I considered many different options. Everything from the Ubiquitous Domme Throne (which I genuinely like but all the Dommes seem to have), to different shapes, types of wood, upholstery, etc.
I decided I wanted something that was unique and fit with My dungeon decor.
I looked at a lot of things, but finally found one that felt right….
…and it arrived yesterday!
Strong lines but still elegant. Some lovely carvings in the oak. Beautiful deep, red velvet that matches the couch I have in My dungeon.
I bought it from an antique dealer in Ohio. It’s circa 1880 and was taken from a Catholic church in West Virginia. (Oh, delicious blasphemy!)
