Heavy Duty Steel Handcuffs

Sex toy review or law enforcement manual? Don’t worry this is definitely a sex toy review, though with these heavy duty handcuffs you could probably do a little bit of freelance policing in your spare time if you want to.

Many years ago we bought a pair of handcuffs for play in the bedroom. They are perfectly OK but they definitely fall into the novelty variety because despite being made of steel  they came with girly, fluffy covers and would not withstand a concerted effort to unlock them from a determined captive.

So when we were sent these heavy duty steel handcuffs we were interested to see exactly how sturdy they are.

The handcuffs are pressed from steel sheet, riveted together and in the case of the ones we received are nickel plated. For those of you with nickel allergy (like Suze) you can get the same cuffs in a black finish. The cuffs are joined by a two link welded chain attached at each end on a pressed steel swivel. The construction is the best of any handcuffs I’ve seen except for police issue Smith and Wesson.

Importantly you get two keys, just in case and to ensure your captive is secure and safe these handcuffs double-lock . For Smith and Wesson style cuffs this is essential and I would always advise you buy double-locking cuffs. Without the ability to lock the cuffs in one position you risk them tightening on your captive and risking an embarrassing call to the emergency services, or worse injuring them.

You double-lock these cuffs by pushing the small lug on the back of the key into a hole in each cuff. When locked in this way the handcuffs are unlocked by first turning the key anti-clockwise to release the “safety” and then clockwise to release the ratchet.

Because of Suze’s allergy I got to be the guinea pig for this particular piece of bondage equipment. The cuffs are quite small but luckily I have slim wrists so they fit, if a little snugly. If your man has broad wrists you might not be able to use these cuffs on him.

Suze had me kneel and cuffed me behind my back. It took a little fiddling to double lock the cuffs as that part of the mechanism isn’t the easiest to use in low light.

As soon the cuffs were in place I felt myself pushed firmly and not too gently onto the bed and Suze slide down next to me. She lay on her back and spread her legs, then she pulled one of my arms indicating I should pay attention to her pussy. With one of her hands on my head and the other grabbing my arm just above the cuff she held my face against her pussy. It was awkward and did not allow me to use my hands as I would normally but being controlled and guided in this way adds a new dimension to this sort of play and it certainly worked for Suze. She loves it when she’s in control and the moistness of her pussy indicated this. The mapping of my tongue and sucking of my mouth played its part but she enjoyed subjugating me and turning me into her own personal pleasure machine. It was the closest I’ve ever come to bringing her to clitoral orgasm with my tongue.

Suze’s high state of arousal meant that although we would have liked to take things further with me restrained she needed more, to be precise a good fucking. So with one wrist released and the other sporting a rather heavy nickel plated bracelet I gave her what she wanted.

I can still feel the weight of the handcuffs on my wrists and the pressure they placed on my skin. It’s an odd sensation to be able to feel the effects of the restraints after they have been removed, even though there are no visible signs that I was ever wearing them.

Oh, and just so you know, it is possible for the wearer of the cuffs to remove them with the key. Not such a bad thing should your captor be unable to do so for some reason. And with a little skill the cuffs can be picked, though it took me a few minutes to do so – I just had to try 🙂

If you want a good quality pair of handcuffs that are a cut above the novelty variety these could be the ones for you. They are tough and feel the part. I have no doubt they will take a lot of heavy use without letting you down. Just be aware that you should pick the black finish if you have a nickel allergy and if the intended wearer doesn’t have slim wrists you may find them a little snug.
