Pervertables – Your Introduction to DIY Kink

With all of the hype still surrounding 50 Shades of Grey, and the interest in BDSM (Bondage/Discipline, Dominance/submission, and/or Sadism/Masochism), there has never been a better time to explore your kinky side. Now before you start worrying about spending money on all new toys and props, look around your house. You’ve got a treasure trove of DIY kinky toys already in your house waiting for you to play with. 

Silk Neck Tie

You don’t need to splurge on rope or bondage tape when you have a silk tie hanging around. This can easily be used to restrain your partner in all sorts of erotic positions. A silk neck tie also doubles as an instant blindfold. For an added level of fun, take the tie directly off from your partner, blindfold them, and begin your seduction. Losing their sense of sight will enhance their remaining ones and leave them wondering what you will do next. 

Silicone Spatula

The kitchen is full of great utensils waiting to be perverted. Almost every home has a silicone spatula which means almost every home has a readymade paddle. You vary the sensation of impact on your partner depending on how much force you put behind it. And clean up couldn’t be easier. Your kitchen toys are dishwasher safe and no one would suspect that the spatula in the rack had a hidden agenda from the night before. Hiding in plain sight!

Feathers Fur and Fuzz
Visit your local craft store and go wild. You can easily purchase feathers, fabrics with different textures (burlap, satin, flannel), and synthetic furs. These are great products to use when you have a blindfolded partner. You can run the different items over their skin and give them many different sensations. Another great craft store buy are clothes pins. They easy double as nipple clamps and they’re so inexpensive that you can throw them away after you’re through with them. Also consider buying some Velcro strips.  Be sure to check the internet or the mobile app of your favorite store for coupons too. Shop smart, sexy.

Wiffleball Ball Gag
Looking for a ball gag? Get an inexpensive wiffelball kit from the store. The ball already has holes cut in it so it makes breathing easier. You just need to thread some rope through the holes and you’re all set. Make sure to wash everything first. You don’t know who has been touching that ball. And bonus, the hollow plastic bat can be used as another impact play item. Win-win.

Stair Railing
Looking for somewhere to restrain your partner that isn’t your bed? Look no further than your own stairway. The rungs built into the staircase can double as a mock St. Andrew’s Cross. While you may not be able to restrain their feet, their arms will be restrained. You position them facing forward or backward and secure them with a scarf, neck tie, or those handy Velcro straps you just bought. This can be great while teasing your partner or a fun position for sex. 

As with any sort of sexual play, always remain vigilant about safety. Try to avoid things that have difficult or permanent locking implements. I do not recommend using zip ties or cheap novelty hand cuffs. You want to be able to ‘escape’ from your restrains in a matter of seconds. If you choose to use rope or aren’t skilled in knots, make sure you have a pair of safety scissors near. 

So no matter what your financial situation is, a little creativity can help you ball(gag) on a budget! Have fun discovering new pervertables, and as always, when it comes to sex, everything is OK here.

  1. my husband seems to find a use or nearly every inanimate object, and finds a way for an encounter nearly everywhere. besides the "normal" things, such as handcuffs, scarves, and my assortment of vibes and dildos. we took my kids to a playground, we were the only ones there. the kids were playing, i was sitting on a swing just watching, he came up behind me, and gave me a little push. i was swinging enough that my sundress was blowing up enough to expose my panties. one thing led to another, it wasnt long before we were inside a little fort type thing, panty off, and him inside me, filling me once again that morning.
    at a formal black tie banquet, he lifted my LBD, fingerfucked me under the table during dinner ! late that night wandering the halls of the convention center, we had several brief encounters.
    at our own wedding, we left the county courthouse, and we were headed home, his hand found it's way under my long dress, and brought me to several orgasms, while the back seat passengers had no idea !!
    out with friends at a biker bar, i wanted to show off my new back tat, i pulled my pants down far enough to show it off, somehow my pants ended up around my knees showing off not only my tat but the leather thong i was wearing. i was horny and ready, we went out back of the bar for a quickie!
    in daytona for bike week, a very warm night, we went for a ride, he convinced me to wear the leather skirt and vest i'd bought earlier that day. during the ride he hit that certain speed, and my pussy was tingling, i reached around and grabbed him, held on and rubbed him until i came again. back at the campground, we didnt wait to get in the tent, he took me while i was still on the bike, the smell of sex and leather permeated the air. we finally made it into the tent, we were loud and very dirty much to the delight of our neighbors in the camp!!

  2. early this morning, my husband asked if i'd like to go out for breakfast. i got out the door in my usual yoga pants and flipflops, his harley was sitting outside the garage. he suggested i at least put on some shoes for the ride. i pulled on my tightest jeans, and zipped up my knee high heeled boots, found my skimpiest bra, and lowest cut tank top. i was already getting wet with anticipation as i climbed aboard the bike. damn if he didnt hit just that certain speed, and i was getting more turned on and wetter by the second. as we sat eating, i was trying to control my fidgeting in the seat, but it was quite obvious to him what i had on my mind. we left the restaurant and took the long way home, much to my delight !! as we pulled into the garage, and he shut the bike off, i jumped off to close the door immediately. i started to unzip his jeans, and he helped me off with one boot and wiggle out of mine.. he took me while i sat sidesaddle on the bike, it seemed like forever before he thrusted deep inside me.. i was babbling incoherently,and could barely stand on my own, as he pulled my jeans back on, and helped me with my boot..
    it's gonna be a great 4th of july !!!
