Having restricted movement will intensify the senses and make for very sensual loving. Handcuffs are an important accessory for a cop costume but also can be a lot of fun in the bedroom. Keep in mind, handcuffs used in sex play are made to be comfortable and safe so don’t borrow your buddy’s police issue. Silk scarves that are worn on a daily basis can have a dual meaning when used during sexual play. Imagine sitting at dinner and caressing the silk scarf around your neck as your partner watches you, anticipating how it will be used after dessert.
Communication is important in every relationship. Openly talk to your partner if you are thinking of “trying something new”. Don’t freak them out by whipping out handcuffs in the middle of the moment. Use handcuffs specifically designed for bedroom play. Visit your local adult toy store together to pick out a nice pair and feel free to ask questions to the trained/knowledgeable staff. Only use handcuffs with someone you completely trust. If you decide to any kind of role playing situation, consider designating a safe word in advance to be used when/if the situation becomes too uncomfortable.
Silk scarves are a fun and sexy substitute to handcuffs but the same advice applies. Being physically restrained can be a very deep and passionate experience but always use safety and open communication.
