Being in a relationship has so many benefits. You have someone to share your fears, concerns, and worries with. You have someone to share the highs, the achievements and all the good fortune. You have someone to cuddle up to at night, someone to exchange gifts with and most of all you have someone that really loves you.

That is all great but what if sometimes you feel bored in that secure and consistent relationship? Do you and should you just accept that that is the way your life is and be happy? Relationships need attention, they don’t just stay healthy without input on both sides. Even with an active sex life, it can still become dull and monotonous so it’s really important to always try to keep things alive, most especially in the bedroom. What better way to change things up than to try out some bondage!

Bondage has really come into the mainstream as a result of the commercial success of the Fifty Shades of Grey series and as a result more and more people wish to try out some aspect of it. Light bondage is great for beginners and can be as simple as using a bathrobe belt to tie your partner up. It’s best if you are new to the area to start on something like this and work through other aspects to see what you – and your partner(s) – like and dislike.

This infographic from Carvaka Adult Toysin the UK gives a good starting point for anyone who wishes to try out bondage for the first time. It gives advice on the type of “tools” that are needed, some precautions you should take before getting started and also it highlights some music that you can use to really set the scene… check it out below and good luck!
