What is a Lead/Leash?
A lead/leash is a tool used in BDSM play to give one partner control over the movement and actions of the other partner. It consists of a long, flexible material (such as leather or rope) with a handle on one end and a clip or loop on the other end that attaches to a collar or harness worn by the submissive partner.
Types of Leads/Leashes
A standard leash is the most common type of lead used in BDSM play. It consists of a long, straight material with a handle on one end and a clip or loop on the other end that attaches to a collar or harness worn by the submissive partner.
A chain leash is similar to a standard leash, but instead of a material like leather or rope, it is made of metal chain links. This type of leash can add a different sensation and weight to the experience.
A bondage leash is designed to be used in conjunction with other bondage equipment, such as handcuffs or ankle restraints. It often has multiple attachment points, allowing the dominant partner to control the movements of the submissive partner in various ways.
Using a Lead/Leash in BDSM Play
Before using a lead/leash in BDSM play, it is important to establish clear communication and consent between partners. The submissive partner should also be wearing a collar or harness that is comfortable and fits properly.
Once ready, the dominant partner can attach the clip or loop of the leash to the collar or harness and take control of the submissive partner’s movements. This can involve leading them around the room, restraining them in a specific position, or using the leash to control their head or body during sexual play.
It is important to always prioritize the safety and comfort of both partners during BDSM play. The dominant partner should be aware of any physical limitations or boundaries of the submissive partner and be prepared to adjust their actions accordingly.
A lead/leash can be a powerful tool in BDSM play, allowing one partner to take control of the movements and actions of the other partner. By establishing clear communication and consent, and prioritizing safety and comfort, this type of play can be both enjoyable and empowering for both partners.
