Construction

These sling stir-ups are made out of three 20cm long and 6cm wide bridle leather belts are perpendicularly attached to an O-ring using sturdy rivets. The lower and the middle straps feature thick and not too soft padding under soft nappa leather; the un-padded top one features a welded D-ring.

Playing with the Padded Sling Stir-Ups

This sling accessory is made for power bottoms who do not want to lay down in the sling but actively work with the top during anal play. The padded perpendicular strap keeps the foot from slipping out of the stir-up when the bottom stems into them. By lifting his ass up and having the support he can push is ass towards whatever is in front of his ass allowing to increase the speed or the depths of the pounding. Once the sub stems into stir-ups the not uncomfortable stiffness of the straps form around the foot, giving it great support for really active engagement. Yet due to the comfortable padding they are great for extended scenes with bare feet.

The support through the tightness comes with a price. Since the leather doesn’t really get broken in they are a bit hard to get the feet into them on your own. Also they are rather confined. Not too bulky sneakers up to size EU47/UK12/US13 are no problem but most kinds of boots are simply too bulky to fit in.

Conclusion: Unique stir-up design for the active power bottom.

Construction

The basis of this toy is a 13cm wide wrist restraint. It is made out of latigo leather onto which a rather firm and thin padding with soft leather cover is sowed. The restraint is closed with two latigo leather belts equipped with roller buckles. Onto the body a long strap of latigo leather is riveted. Through several rivets it has an h-shape with a welded D-ring on each vertical part and carrying a brushed stainless steel grabpole on the horizontal part. The leather is high quality and the manufacturing is spotless. Yet due to the materials used it takes a little bit longer to break them in. The restraints come with a standard steel carabiner which as always I recommend to switch for a climbing carabiner.

Playing with it

If this restraint lives up to its name depends on your play style. Through the stiff body the wrist is kept upright and well supported. Yet the padding is way firmer than on that restraint so I would not recommend the weight of a body resting on the lower bones of the hand. So a suspended sub would have to hold onto the grabpole which is essentially the stress bondage. Some testees found that scenario incredibly hot! Personally I prefer the 4 buckle style – at least for suspension.

In different play scenarios I really love these restraints. Because the D-rings are centered above the hand you can really stretch a sub into a spread eagle. Also in a hogtie the bounding force being an extension of the arm feels more natural than pulling perpendicular on the wrist like when using a D-ring attached to the side of a cuff style wrist restraint. This more natural flow of force is also good in many other play situations, p.e. when fettering a sub into a sling. I used these restraints into a fisting once and the sub used the bars to lift him up and really thrust his ass onto my fist.

Speaking of position these restraints are good to compensate for the shortcoming of most crosses in play spaces. There are good reasons to put a St.-Andrews-Cross into a play space yet for flogging in combination with cuff style restraints they are not ideal. The arms get stretched up leading to tensed up shoulder muscles. If you use these restraints the arms can hang easily so that the upper arms are in line with the shoulder leading to relaxed muscles.

Conclusion: High quality heavy duty bondage belt
