What is it about handcuffs that so intrigue people who engage in kinky play – and even those who don’t?

It seems like every time kink is brought up in mainstream discussion, it’s handcuffs that are inevitably bought up. The image of handcuffed wrists, even if not in a kink context, often elicits remarks and self-conscious giggles in vanilla company. Why are they such an ubiquitous symbol of BDSM iconography?

Do you play with them? What do you like about them? How do they make you feel, either as a Top or a bottom?

Is play with them part of a larger roleplaying scene, or are they just another implement in your kink arsenal?

Are you ready? Let’s Get Our Kink On and talk about handcuffs!
