Bondage Kits for Beginners: Sets for n00b Lovers

When you are just starting out with bondage, your eyes may get big in excitement and you’d want to acquire as many bondage toys as possible. Don’t! If you haven’t done much bondage, you might not actually like some of the practices or toys you fantasize about. Instead, get a bondage kit, a set of sex toys assembled specifically to cover a wide range of bondage-related activities for those who are just dipping their toes in bondage. There are quite a few bondage kits for beginners on the market; we’ve put together this roundup to guide your choices.

Things to Know About Bondage Kits for Beginners

One great advantage of buying a bondage kit is that you pay much less for all the items in total than you would if you bought them individually.

While contents differ between beginner bondage kits, most kits include a blindfold, a ball gag, a collar, two sets of cuffs (for wrists and for ankles), a flogger, some rope (usually a 15-foot cut).

No matter what your chosen beginner bondage set contains, items will be designed for planned obsolescence. Think about it: for about $15-$25, the price point of most adult bondage kits, you can get anywhere between three and eleven toys.

Bondage for Beginners - Good Vibrations

A beginners bondage kits is just that, a set of toys for beginners. It designed not to last but rather to introduce you to bondage to see if you like it. As you continue on your bondage journey and figure out your preferences, you’ll want to replace whichever items you and your partner enjoy with a more durable one of higher quality.

As with all bondage and bondage-related activities, the key is to experiment and to remember that there is no overall best bondage kit, just the one that’s perfect for you and your partner.

If all goes well, you’ll outplay it quickly anyway.

Small Bondage Kits for Beginners

Most beginners bondage fantasy kits contain at least half-a-dozen items, but you can find smaller ones out there as well. We recommend these three.

Scarlet-Red Passion Bondage Kit

Beginner Bondage Set Red - ER

Just so you don’t think every beginner bondage set comes in black, we’ll start with a red one.

This is a true beginner bondage kit. The satin-padded blindfold takes away your partner’s sight for heightened anticipation.

Restrain his wrists and ankles with two pairs of satin cuffs featuring adjustable Velcro closures and metal eyelets and snap hooks to connect the cuffs to each other or to other bondage gear. Black lace decoration provides a touch of class for your bedroom play.

Principles of Lust Couples’ Set

Bondage Kit for Beginners - Babeland1
This black bondage kit is part of the Fifty Shades Darker co-branding craze. It comes at a corresponding price, at about twice what you would pay for bigger sets on Amazon. Though we’re no fans of Fifty Shades, we still feature it here because it is the most different of all the sets.

The only thing it has in common with the others is the blindfold. Instead of cuffs restraints you can tie your partner up with a pair of silky soft strips of cloth; a knowledge of basic knots is essential.

Unlike any other bondage starter kits, it contains a small feather tickler and an adjustable cock ring.

But it is the finger vibrator that justifies the higher price point. Slip it over your finger to tease your restrained partner out of her mind.

Fur-Lined Bondage Set

Beginner Bondage Kit Fur-Lined - ER

This is the highest priced set here: it’s the (faux) fur and (real) leather! It’s also the most solid.

Fur-lined ankle and wrist cuffs are double layered so they’re more secure and will last longer. They close with a rolling buckle and a lockable (with a padlock) clasp. And they come with D-rings for easy attachment to each other or to anything else; note that snap hooks are not included in the package.

The collar, too, is leather, fur lined, and equipped with D-rings.

6-Piece Bondage Kits for Beginners

The 6-piece beginners bondage sets add impact play into your bondage adventures. The most common toy, which goes for the 8- and 10-piece sets as well, is a flogger.

Bondage Adventure Kit

Beginners Bondage Kit - ER

This is a 6-piece kit.

Like all kits in our roundup, the Bondage Adventure Kit includes two pairs of cuffs, which are two inches wide and made of black synthetic leather, lined with faux fur, reinforced with an adjustable strap, and come with D-rings. These cuffs also come with removable 20-inch-long chains.

As does the collar, whose 22-inch-long chain leash ends with a wrist loop to walk your play slave.

Finally, a flogger with a wrist loop and twenty 21-inch strands will help you introduce flogging into the bedroom.

7-Piece Basic Bondage Kits

Sylvia QE S&M Kit

This is one of the most affordable couples bondage kits on the list. For less than $15, you get 7 basic sex toys  to start out your adventures in bondage:

  • Faux-fur lined ankle and wrist cuffs with a short chain? Check.
  • A collar with a leash? Check.
  • A blindfold? Check.
  • A 20-inch-long flogger? Check.

Here’s where it gets interesting, as with all the bigger basic bondage kits. The Sylvia kit also contains a ball gag and a 15-foot-long piece of rope (knot instructions not included).

All in black (a red variant is available), with just one drawback: It’s all PVC (except for the cotton rope). But for the price, it’s unbeatable.

The Bepety bondage kit is nearly identical to the Sylvia, except it’s more expensive because it’s made from synthetic leather (except the rope, which is cotton).

If black and pink aren’t your thing, the Free Feet kit is a red-and-black variation called enticingly the Red Zebra.

Lined, faux-leather cuffs for both wrists and ankles, a ball gag, a blindfold, a collar with a leash, a flogger, and a paddle will get you well on your way in both bondage and impact play.

8-Piece Beginner Bondage Sets

Mamiya S&M Kit

The 8-piece, mostly faux-leather, Mamiya bed bondage kit contains some of the usual suspects: a blindfold, a flogger, a ball gag, a 15-foot length of rope, and a collar (beware, it’s not lined).

What this super-affordable kit lacks in a pair of ankle cuffs (it only comes with a pair of wrist cuffs), it substitutes with a small, faux leather-covered paddle and a pair of nipple clamps.

Ussastore Bed Restraint Kit

As you may have guessed from perusing the Bondage Is for Lovers website, we love colors black and red. Which is why Ussastore kit is the most attractive to us.

The fur and the leather may be faux, but red adds just the enticing dash of color into your bedroom. Cuffs for both the ankles and wrists, a blindfold, a ball gag, a collar, a piece of rope, a flogger, and nipple clamps come in a sexy palette to spice up your play (just as it has ours).

10-Piece Beginner Bondage Kits

A 10-piece bondage restraint kit will pretty much cover all your beginner bondage fantasies. If you can’t decide between a smaller and a bigger adult bondage kit, go with the bigger one. Price-wise they’re comparable and the additional bondage toys for couples will extend your play to additional territories.

More Better One Bed Kit

This 10-piece bedroom bondage kit comes with

  • a blindfold;
  • a ball gag;
  • a collar with a leash;
  • two pairs of chain-connected cuffs with snap hooks;
  • a flogger;
  • a tickler;
  • rope;
  • a pair of nipple clamps; and
  • a hogtie restraint.

This is the most versatile bondage 101 kit we have found. It’s the hogtie that sells it, but it’s also super-affordable.

Ussastore Restraint Love Kit

Compared to the previous kit, the Ussastore beginners bondage set substitutes a paddle for the tickler. Rather than a more sensual, teasing experience, the combination of the paddle with a flogger opens up more impact-play possibilities. It’s up to your preference.

What ultimately sold us on this kit over the More Better One kit is the color scheme. As we said (and as you can see throughout the Bondage Is for Lovers website), we love to mix red in with black.
