Review: Heart 2 Heart Wrist Cuffs

June 21, 2010

Heart 2 Heart Wrist Cuffs $35 from Babeland.com

BDSM play of some sort has always been involved in my sex life, even before I lost my virginity. Usually my desires contain being restrained or restraining someone for one reason or another. It’s just hot and adds to the foreplay. While this is easily accomplished and played out with your cheap thin fleece and velco closure cuffs I’ve always been left lusting after a higher quality visually appealing cuff set. Desire no more! The Heart 2 Heart Wrist Cuffs have ARRIVED! *bad superhero pose*

I bet you’re curious as to the sizing. The Heart 2 Heart cuffs will fit 5″ to 8″ diameter wrists/ankles. They have seven holes spaced a half-inch apart. My wrists are 6.5″ around and I have to use the third hole from the end if that helps put it into perspective at all. No? It doesn’t? FINE! Try looking at a soda can. If your wrists or ankles are any bigger around then you cannot wear them. Sadly I don’t have a comparison for the minimum width aside from “cock ring size”, but I’m sure any adult width size under the above will do fine.

Maybe I just have high expectations but I wasn’t completely wowed by these black and red leather beauties. Sure they are made of a nice quality leather and feature a buckle closure, but the velcro cuffs preform just as nice. There isn’t much of a difference aside from being a bit harder to take off, the material, and the visual appeal. I made a list.

Why they R0X0Rs0X

  • Light leather scent with a soft feel.
  • Black and red = visually appealing.
  • Buckle closure.
  • Durable and holds up to struggling well.
  • Harder for the restrained to release themselves.
  • Can be locked with a small padlock.
  • Easy to clean and hard to wear out.
  • Strong D-ring.

NI! “Ecky ecky ecky ecky pakang zoom boing” *

Otherwise known as Cons.

  • Requires a cuff connector, rope, or creativity in order to be used as restraints.
  • Can possibly rip if struggled hard enough against due to the seam running down the middle of the red strap.
  • D-ring can be felt through the leather on the wrist.

According to my list there are more pros than cons which really is the truth. If you can afford the cheap price offered from Babeland for these beauties go for it. They help set a mental and visual mood and just seem more ‘serious business’. However, if you’re a bit low on cash and don’t mind being able to do quick releases I’d go with Tickled Pink Restraints. In the end it’s totally up to your preference as both types of cuffs do the same job.

    Babeland sent these to me to review too, and I love them. So comfortable and sexy. Leather just feels more “serious” than cloth/velcro to me. Plus red + black = hot.

    Me too! It was the smell that did it (in a good way!) for me. Didn’t think I’d like it, but it grew on me within a few minutes!
