The New Year is almost here, and as I mentioned in a previous post, what better way to make it festive than with some functional and lovely bondage gear? Cal Exotics’ new Scandal line has a variety of items to mix and match for a sexy, coordinating bondage play time. I love being restrained, and I do love being hogtied. This month, as part of the Cal Exotics’ Sexpert program, I was fortunate to also receive the Scandal Hogtie set for free to review in exchange for an unbiased review.
The Scandal Hogtie set from Cal Exotics comes in a large cardboard box, with a woman restrained with the set on both the front and back of the box. The fabric pattern is shown on both the bottom and on the inside of the box. Inside are four matching cuffs and the hogtie piece, sealed in plastic.
The four polyester cuffs are identically sized. Each cuff is 2” wide and 10” long. The underside of cuff is covered with plush black fabric, which won’t irritate your skin, while the top of the cuff has a pretty red and black lace-design fabric. These cuffs close with Velcro, and a 1” wide strip is sewn down the middle of the cuff front. About 7” of the Velcro is rough, and the smooth Velcro extends 6” off the cuff. This makes the cuff very adjustable, and it should fit most wrists and ankles. If you have small wrists or ankles, the cuff will overlap; if they’re larger, you may have a section of skin that’s only covered by the Velcro strip and not the cuff itself. Each cuff has a black metal O-ring secured to it in the center, and this has a swivel-clip attached. The swivel clips can be used to attach each cuff to the hogtie, as well as to each other or any other ring or apparatus (like a spreader bar).
The hogtie piece is black, with a large O-ring in the center, and four smaller O-rings connected to the center ring by 1” wide black material. The material is securely fastened together by rivets, so it won’t break or tear during use. All of the metal is nickel-free iron (the O-rings and the rivets) or a nickel-free alloy (the clasps).
The cuffs are easy to connect to the hogtie piece, and are also easy to remove.
This is an easy to care for set. The cuffs and hogtie can be spot cleaned, or they can be washed in a lingerie bag and hung dry. The set doesn’t take up a lot of space, so you can store it in a small bag, or even just in a drawer. The box is too large to store the set in, but it can be recycled.
So, Did It Work? This hogtie set is a lot of fun – provided, of course, you like to be hogtied (which I do). The cuffs are comfortable and easy to adjust, and we had no problems connecting them to, or removing them from, the central hogtie piece. Everything seems sturdy, and it was as comfortable as it could be when in the position of me on my stomach. It is possible to also clip the cuffs to the pieces when you’re on your knees, although for me this position is a bit harder to hold. I like that the cuffs completely detach from the hogtie piece as well: they can be attached to each other, a spreader bar, a leash, or other rings as the mood strikes.
Thank you to Cal Exotics for sending me the Scandal Hogtie set for free to review as part of their Sexpert program! The Scandal line has several coordinating pieces, including an under the bed restraint set, collar and leash, blindfold, ball gag, paddle, harnesses and a spreader bar for sexy fun in red and black.
