Greetings,

As a hobby I make dungeon furniture so I have a query.

What are the qualities or functions that make a piece of furniture or equipment especially attractive for S/M play for you? Is it positioning of the client, secure restraints, elegance of design, comfort . . .

As one peofessional said when I asked about dungeon furniture she liked, she said, 'Like pornography, I know it when I see it.' Can you describe pornographic eqipment that gets your imagination working? :-)

Peace,
Pat

Can't argue with "I'll know it when I see it." There are some fantastic benches out there. Functionality as well as comfort are at the top of my list. It should appropriately position the person for the task at hand, as well as allow for the easy and effective use of restraints.

Went across a saw-horse once, hands and feet on the floor, bound to each of the four legs. I liked the position, but the narrow edge of the two-by-four digging into my stomach was too much and compromised my strength. Furniture doesn't need to be perfect, but found I have little tolerance for anything digging or pressing into my stomach.

I agree with the comment that unintended discomfort compromises your strength. It may be counter-intuitive, but comfort for the bottom is important to consider in designing for a dungeon. I also think comfort for the top is as well.

A stone in the shoe is painful, so is bastinado. One is bad, one is good.

Peace,
Pat

Hi Pat,
The pieces of equipment that appeal to Me most are the ones that are more versatile. I always look for eyelets & tie off points. There can almost never be enough. I look at equipment for awhile & think of comfortable positions & then uncomfortable positions. And if I can do both, it's a winner! I also have to consider how big the equipment is. For someone with a smaller space like Mine, I need to make sure the piece is worth the space it's taking up.

Miss Maya,

Thank you ever so much for indulging my little hobby/fetish. You have given me many enjoyable hous of planning and execution. May your recovery continue to progress. May any physical scars only serve to make you more uniquely beautiful and spiritual scars stronger.

Smaller furnishings are difficult to make versatile as the design must confront the size of the human frame. I am currently working on a small side table in oak. Perhaps I will add several decorative tie points in your honor.

Peace,
Pat

Thank you for your well wishes, Pat. Recovery is a slow path but I am healing up much quicker than anticipated. Let's hope it continues.

I am well aware of the difficulties presented when it comes to size of the human frame. And I am sure it is difficult to make pieces that are small and adaptable. Maybe you will look at it as a challenge and it will inspire you smile

Miss Maya,

Your recovery and enthusiam are quite inspirational. I am making a small end table just for you. I believe you will find it useful as place to display things - like ends and other parts. ;-)

Peace,
Pat

Interesting question!

I tend to look at furniture in terms of dungeon design overall - I like to have each space have one standing and one lying bondage position available... I also need to be able to make the bondage extremely restrictive so agree with Maya on tie points - though I personally dislike eyelets.

In regards to actual pieces I look for quality in materials and manufacture - pieces that have been finished properly... I own two pieces from Fetters in the UK and can really see the difference between this quality and that of most other manufacturers - particularly because they use top quality grain leather for upholstery and not vinyl. I actually have another Very Important piece coming from them - it's due to go on a little sea voyage in a week or so!

That said my most used and most versatile piece of equipment is a simple bondage table - but one that was made for me. The height is perfect for caning, it's large enough for someone to be spread-eagled on, and for me to sit up on there with them while tormenting them... One great thing about this piece is that it's on (lockable) wheels so I can easily move it around the dungeon - either to clear the floor so I can use that space, or so I can reposition the restrained sub where I want them.

Thank you for your reply! You are most gracious.

I have resisted working with leather upholstery in a professional environment because of the issue of cleasing and staining. I use a marine grade vinyl for its durability and quaality - but it is certainly not leather.

Size is certainly key. Comfortable caning height is not the same for everyone. If given the option, I like to experiment with positions until we find her optimal strike zone where she has the most control. Then I design around that height.

Because most of the pieces I have made must pass in a vanilla environment, I like to create attach points that are integrated into the design - like a row of drawer pull hardware as a finish element on the supporting rails under the edge of a table.

I have found that the incorporating the ability to stretch or rack their client is appealing to many professionals. What do you think?

Peace,
Pat

Hello,
my fetish is ball-kicking. Is there a simple bondage device, one either portable or resembling furniture, which would hold a sub immobile and vulnerable for ball-kicking, preventing the sub from doubling over in pay or moving out of the way of a kick?

CBT chairs, sorta like this one.

That's just the first link I found. I don't think that particular chair looks too effective. There are other styles that are better. Personally, what I want in a CBT chair is something where I really can push the legs wide and LOCK them into place. I also prefer a chair with a set of straps, esp around the legs, because rope bondage is not really my favorite and I like to be able to make my slave very secure very quickly, so I can get to the fun stuff.
