BDSM on a Budget - Shopping For & Making
By Suzanne SxySadist
Disclaimer! Please be sure that you have a good
understanding of what you are doing and who you are doing
it with, before attempting any kind of BDSM play. People can
get hurt doing this stuff and not in a fun or pleasurable
way! “Let’s be careful out there!”
Reasons for inexpensive or pervertable toys.
Let’s face it .. this stuff can be expensive
and many of us can’t afford everything we want.
You may also want to experiment with substitutes
before buying more expensive props.
Fear of discovery – pervertables can be
innocently & easily explained.
You can be health conscious & safer by using
There can be pride & satisfaction in making
Where to shop?
Department stores, Home “Dom/me”
Depot, Pet & Tack shops, Kitchen stores, Dollar Stores,
You may be surprised by what you can find with
an open mind and a touch of perverted imagination.
For Example: (most of these can be found or
made for under $10.00
- Feather Dusters, lamb's wool dusters, rabbit
pelts and chamois clothes are wonderful for tickling, teasing,
cooling down the body or erotic sensation play.
- Pizza paddles, wooden spoons, cutting boards
and spatulas make great paddles.
- Hair brushes are classic for spanking and
great for sensation play too.
- Clothespins are possibly the original nipple
(and other area) clamps and still very effective and inexpensive.
- Bamboo skewers & chopsticks can be fun
for sensation play also. Tie two together with rubber bands
and use as nipple or other area clamps.
- Bungee cords can be used in several imaginative
ways: bondage, tugging on things or as a light to severe flogger
if you strip the cloth off and bind one end.
- Scarves make excellent blindfolds or gags
and are also readily available and inexpensive.
- Double ended snap hooks have a multitude of
uses!! I have at least a dozen at all times!
- Fishing line sinkers make very effective weights
for a little added tension to any clamp. They vary in price
according to size. Drop an eye bolt in an old bowling ball.
- *Shrimp deveiners make an evil looking but
safe gadget for mock knife play or wax removal. Turkey lifters
& pickle pluckers are also a lot of fun.
- *Closet tie or belt racks are handy little
items for hanging up any of your other toys.
- *Try pet stores for collars & leashes
as well as plastic or rubber curry brushes. They are great
for sensation play & massage.
- *Many drug stores carry sleep masks which
are wonderful blindfolds.
- Go to a tack shop for a cheap riding crop.
Also horse hobbles can make decent cuffs.
- Candles can be amazingly erotic but please
be careful here and be sure you know what sort of wax to use
and how close or far away to hold it! Grocery stores carry
the tall glass candles and the little white Sabbath candles.
- Plastic water filled ice cubes are terrific
frozen treats to use for a bit of sensation play, without
the mess of real melting ice.
- Rope can be fairly cheap. Buy lots and cut
it into handy lengths. You can either bind the ends with tape
or learn to "whip" the ends with string. Nylon or
soft cotton rope, 3/8 or 1/2 inch thickness works very well
for most areas. I like thinner rope, (one quarter inch thick)
for genital areas, and the thicker rope for anything that
will be struggled against vigorously. If you use clothes line,
try to get the stuff without the plastic core, I find it easier
to work with. Please be sure to get bondage lessons from an
experienced person before trying it yourself.
- Safety shears are a must to have if you do
bondage. Think emergency release & get the good ones!!
- Rope or twine can also make a wonderfully
soft, luxurious, inexpensive flogger. The more you use, the
heavier it will be. A large round ring will give you a good
place to anchor the lengths through, and then bind enough
of it together at the top to use as a handle. Unravel the
braided strands to give it a lush softness.
- *Large adjustable "C" clamps with
at least a 6 inch spread can be use to turn a doorway into
an excellent place for bondage. Hook the clamps over the moldings
over the door and tighten. From there you can use them to
bind the submissive's hands over the head. I do not suggest
it for suspension bondage.
- Canes are fairly inexpensive and you can customize
the handles a bit. www.aswgt.com is my favourite source. Also
mini blind rods work pretty well as canes.
- A wooden dowel at least an inch thick and
3 foot wide can easily be turned into a spreader bar. Add
an eye hook at each end; grab a couple snap hooks, some rope
or cuffs... TA DA! You're in business!!
- *Practice golf balls (hard plastic, hollow,
with holes in it) can make good ball gags. Put a rope or thong
through the holes & the sub can still breathe with it
These are just a few examples of the 1000s
of things you could buy to play with or make yourself. Use
your kinky imagination but please be safe!
Do it yourself Book:
There are also several great books that show
interesting ideas and easy things to make for very little
money and nominal effort. If you are even a little handy and
can follow directions, you could easily create some wonderful
playthings. One book in particular that I found to be excellent
is "Kinky Crafts: 101 Do-It-Yourself S/M Toys" compiled
and edited by Lady Green of the Greenery Press.
