A couple of decades when most people were into BDSM, they were into all three pair of the acronym: Bondage & Discipline, Dominance & Submission and Sadism & Masochism. People like me who just enjoy play (back than called “work”) without any aspect of being disciplined or submissive were the minority. This strict hierarchic attitude also reflected in the gear worn: One had to graduate from brown to black leather. Also there were different models for masters and slaves, the latter being equipped with anchor points for bondage. Especially in the last couple of years harnesses – especially chest harnesses – became a kinky fashion accessory (which despite not having the torso for it am also guilty of doing). I am definitely not a slave but I was always intrigued by the functionality of a slave harness.
So I got really excited when strolling through HML Fetish’s small yet exquisite store in Bremen I stumbled over a harness with D-rings. It follows the design of a traditional “slave” harness with jockstrap like straps around the ass and over the crack so the slave can only wear the harness and still be somewhat clad in leather. But what is more important for me are the D-rings: With one each on the shoulder and on the side on the level of the chest and the thigh the harness is an effective tool to bound a sub to a bed or just attach restraints when standing or walking in a bar. The many different fettering possibilities inspired me to combine a bunch of other restraints into a straitjacket-like bondage setup.
The HML Fetish Bondage Harness costs 295€ and comes in sizes from skinny to extra beefy. To learn all about this special piece of bondage gear, read my in-depth review here. If you want to do the all leather look as a slave/sub take a look at HML Fetish’s leather chastity harness.
