A hallmark of BDSM is the vast array of toys and implements that tend to be considered an embodiment of the lifestyle. As illustration, one constantly sees depictions of dungeons, fully stocked with whips, canes, floggers, paddles, and countless other glittering accouterments. But, as you’re probably aware, such quality items don’t come cheap, especially in these “dire economic times” (ahem). It can be tiring – especially when you’re low on funds — to be constantly bombarded with representations of BDSM that seem to be just beyond your financial grasp.
Perhaps you’ve had experiences, though, where all the tools and trimmings were in place but the scene felt thoroughly hollow. Regrettably, all the toys in the world can’t compensate for an utter lack of chemistry and/or communication – even when it would be very convenient for them to do so. What good is a $300 whip if you don’t want to kiss the hand that wields it? In fact, I have found that the most erotic and fulfilling scenes are often those with a minimum of outside trappings.
Certainly we can all appreciate the artistry and aesthetic appeal of the paraphernalia so closely associated with BDSM. But at the end of the day (or session), your submissive is the only toy that really matters! Putting your twisted minds together — especially when accessories are scarce — to conjure up a creative solution will yield a truly memorable scene, guaranteed.
