More DIY Kink

By Kate Allure

When my DH came home with this beautiful red rope for a home improvement project, my erotic-romance-author brain immediately thought of a better use for it that involved tying someone up. It got me thinking that there are probably many useful items at the Home Depot for bedroom play, so today I went on a field trip.

One thing I quickly learned…tools and tool-belts are hot! This shouldn’t be a surprise to me, given my latest book release, Laying Pipe, which was a #1 Best Seller in Erotica BDSM on Amazon last week. [Woohoo!]

But walking around, seeing all this hard [accent on the hard] -ware, well let’s just say, there is some fun to be had among the nuts and bolts. It only takes a little imagination, and you can outfit your dungeon — or just spice up your sex life — from a trip to the hardware store.

So, I offer these items for tying or chaining, pvc pipe for a lightweight homemade spreader bar (just make sure the ends don’t chafe) or perhaps a short pipe for a bit. There’s multiple colors of duct tape for, well, taping, and nylon ties for restraint, but I prefer the gear ties. They’re surprisingly soft on the skin and flexible, as someone before me demonstrated by braiding them. If you want your slave to kneel in comfort there are soft mats, but if they’re to be made uncomfortable, kept on edge or being punished, then the bristle mats are a must. Doggie play...that’s an option too. If you wish your punishment to elicit only muffled cries, there’s the pvc bit again or show your abundant mercy with a bandana gag.

Or if you are more of a mind to offer a sultry, sensual experience buy 2 bandanas — one for a gag and one for a blindfold. Restraints might be in order too. Then surprise your lover with alternating sharp, lusciously soft, or scraping sensations. The mini-rake is surprisingly forgiving, its tines flexible.

If there’s one complaint to be made, the color orange isn’t high on my list of eroticism, but, hey, I expect to be blindfolded so what does it matter.

If you missed my first article on DIY toys (with everything from household items for spicing up your sex life, to how to make a flogger or crop), you can read it here.

Lastly, might I suggest something from the garden department. Flowers are not only romantic, they’re also erotic. I’m not the first one to say this. Feminine...and masculine. Thrusting. Open and waiting. Ready for sex, just as lovers hope to be. And they smell good too.

So, whether you find your inspiration in the garden, at the hardware store, with readymade toys, or in reading an erotic romance [I can offer a suggestion here...], June is a month for lovers. Don’t let it go to waste!

~ Kate

P.S. Sex play is one of God’s greatest gifts. It can also be dangerous, so I’m reposting last month’s caveat: Safety is one of the most important things to think about. Do the research before trying anything. Negotiate and make sure everyone’s comfortable with the plan. Have a “safe word.” Lastly, always have an out — and I don’t mean leaving your options open in case a better lover comes along. Instead, I mean make sure you have what it takes to quickly release your lover in case...oh, I don’t know, a sudden case of claustrophobia develops (can’t imagine why I'd think of that). But you get the idea. You need to be able to release your partner ASAP in case of any type of emergency. So, keep whatever you need handy, be it the handcuff key (on a ribbon so it can’t fall behind the couch cushions), scissors for tape, or a knife for thick rope. And, as always, this author is not a doctor, sex therapist, nor plays one on TV. I offer this post as entertainment and accept no legal responsibility for any results of anyone attempting to copy the sexual acts depicted in any of my stories or for trying out any tips/suggestions posted herein. Lastly, follow the rule of Safe, Sane, and Consensual.
