I'm still buzzing about the review I did for the Liebe Seele Wine Red Collar & Leash Set. It blew me away in terms of its quality and levels of finish.
When Liebe Seele, a Japanese manufacturer and retailer of fine BDSM products, got in touch with me, I was delighted.
"I love the look of these cuffs on sub'r'. I also love their effect on her when I fit them to her wrists and ankles. She becomes putty in my hands, and it is a lot of fun to restrain her in different positions before using wands, dildos or strap-ons for some light entertainment."Joanne
They sent me the collar and leash set together with their wrist and ankle cuffs from the same Wine Red collection. I have had some time playing with them with sub'r' and now feel qualified to give them the review they deserve.
So let me tell you all about the Liebe Seele Wine Red Wrist & Ankle Cuff Sets.
It isn't often that I get an e-mail out of the blue from a BDSM manufacturer enquiring as to whether I would be interested in reviewing some of their products.
It always makes my day though when it does happen. So, when Liebe Seele from Japan got in touch, I had a massive smile on my face. Their products looked fantastic on their website, so I jumped at the chance to evaluate some.
"I have lots of different collars, but none of them holds up to the quality and craftsmanship shown in this one. I love the colour combinations of the wine red main sections and the black leather highlights. The smell of the leather is strong, and that gives me all sorts of warm comfy feelings."sub'r'
Sometimes, the reality of what it is like to use a product doesn't live up to your expectations. But, "spoiler alert", that is most definitely not the case with this great collar and leash set.
So please sit back, get comfortable and let me tell you about this collar, its leash and of course Liebe Seele themselves.
I must admit to being impressed with the service and products from Passion Craft Store (PCS) in Ukraine. They sent me some fantastic Jute Rope to review recently, and this stunning BDSM Whip with tassels also arrived for me to review.
I love my BDSM play and have quite a collection of impact toys but nothing quite like this whip.
"Having used it on sub'r' in several sessions now to get a good feel for it, I found it easy to wield and versatile. You can deliver some extremely painful blows with it if you so choose, but at the same time, it is capable of very light touches that almost caress the skin."Joanne
I have had lots of fun putting it to good use together with my new spanking bench and both sub'r', and I love it.
So let me tell you about this devilishly good impact play toy from PCS.
I was delighted when Betty's Toy Box got in touch, asking me if I would be interested in reviewing some of their products.
I jumped at the chance, of course, as I have had my eyes on Betty's Toy Box for years now but never expected them to get in touch as they have their headquarters in Canada (but they ship globally from their warehouses in the USA).
"A collar means different things to different folk. My submissive, the delightful sub'r' loves wearing a collar as for her, it re-enforces her submissive role. Just wearing it is a constant reminder of her place. Wearing a collar is also a huge turn-on for her, and she does look good in one if I do say so myself"Joanne
As a female-founded store, I love that they focus on sex positivity and body-safe materials, both subjects close to my heart.
They told me that they would be sending me some BDSM related products, and I knew I would have a lot of fun with my submissive, the delightful sub'r' when they arrived. So let me tell you all about the first product: the Saffron Collar and Leash Set by Sportsheets.
Well, truth be known sub'r' almost dragged me there when she saw the amazing display of floggers, whips and paddles. She does enjoy her impact play and of course, so do I, and so I didn't need much persuasion to introduce ourselves to them.
"The marble is just so beautiful to behold, and as you rotate it in your hand, the different patterns on it just look amazing. The marble handle is smooth and heavy in the hand, and it has a nicely rounded tip."Joanne
They kindly took some time out from making business contacts to give us the lowdown on their range of fantastic BDSM products. I am very thankful for that as we got to learn so much about their range in a short period of time.
We loved handling all of the floggers and whips, and one stood out for me, and that was their Fifty Times Hotter Marble Handle Flogger. They graciously let me take the one on their stand home to review, and we have had a log of fun putting it through its paces. So let me tell you all about this unusual little flogger.
It's not often that a BDSM starter set comes along that really grabs my attention and also my imagination. But, that is what happened when Honour.co.uk asked me if I would be interested in reviewing theirs, as you can imagine, I jumped at the chance to try it out.
Often beginners sets are filled with low-quality products designed to work for a short length of time, so you need to replace them.
"The amount of equipment you get in this set is fantastic but more importantly, it is quality equipment, and it makes a brilliant way to experiment with some light BDSM play."Joanne
This set is different, totally different in fact and as you will see from this review, I am quite taken with it.
This is the first product ever to get a 10 out of 10 from me so let me show you why this is "the set" to get if you are looking to dip your toes into the kinky waters of the BDSM scene.
Anyone who reads my blog and reviews regularly knows how much I enjoy wearing collars when enjoying some BDSM play time.
I was delighted to be able to review this Puppy Play Spiked Leather Alpha Dog Collar, yes that is a bit of a mouthful. While collars are one of the mainstays of BDSM play they are a necessity for puppy play.
"I love having it fitted around my neck, being locked into it really gets my juices flowing and is a big turn on for me. I like my collars, and I loved running my fingers across all those spikes around my neck."Joanne
This is where the wearer acts and plays as a human puppy or pup for short. They get to enjoy tummy rubs, serving their owner and playing on their hands and knees or just romping around.
This is a collar designed for puppy play, but it would equally suit anyone looking for a butch collar for regular BDSM play too. So read on to find out what I thought of it.
Now I love my impact play, but the thought of being on the receiving end of a cat o' nine tails terrified me. The legendary punishment implement used throughout history for its extreme and cruel efficiency.
When I was asked by Meo if I would review one for them I must admit to a little trepidation but, you know me, the thought of an excuse to get my backside out for some corporal punishment was too good to miss so, of course, I said yes.
"I just bit my lip and waited for his order. He told me to stand and go into the dining room where he forced me to bend over the dining room table exposing my buttocks."Joanne
So for anyone unaware of the history of the Cat o' nine tails, it is an implement synonymous with punishment in the Royal Navy and other institutions. People often didn't survive its use, but I had high hopes of doing so.
The Cat was going to be something special, and I couldn't wait to get started with it.
As you can imagine I was delighted when Bondara got in touch with me again, this time asking if I would be interested in reviewing a leather paddle for them.
Well, the thought of a new impact toy and a leather one at that had me squirming in my seat and so I, of course, agreed to review one for them.
"When swung, it requires minimal effort to make a loud slapping noise as it strikes home and it leaves good blade shaped marks on the skin when it is withdrawn."Joanne
They sent me this Lair Leather Sword Slapper Paddle for free in exchange for a fair and honest review, and I couldn't wait to put it to the test.
Now the Master of all things swingy and ouchy is my Stunt Cock, he can swing a paddle or flogger like no-one else, and so he was roped in again to use this paddle on sub'r' and myself so that we could both give our thoughts on it. So read on to find out what we thought of it.
I love receiving BDSM products through the post to review, there is something incredibly pleasing about opening a box having no idea what is inside to find something you think might be just up your street.
That is how I felt when I opened my latest package from AdultShopIt a UK online retailer carrying a dizzying array of sex toys and BDSM implements.
"Wearing it was a lot of fun, with the strap pulled very tight the ball portion of the gag forces your teeth open and the penis extension sits on your tongue giving your mouth a very full feeling which I loved."Joanne
They had sent me a penis ball gag, and I couldn't wait to have some fun with it. I had always wondered how they feel and I was going to find out. I knew that sub'r' would also be delighted to put it through its paces too.
So we went to a dungeon and put it to the test, having used it numerous times now I feel confident that I can do it justice in this review so here we go.
I have an old and slightly tatty ball gag that I have been using so I jumped at the chance to get a shiny new one when Bondara sent me a unique discount code for my readers giving 10% off their Obey range.
So I quickly grabbed my card and headed over to their site and found this stunning red leather ball gag with its silicone ball.
"When I am restrained and gagged, I can feel my own saliva trickling out of my mouth and dripping onto my breast, I feel humiliated but also incredibly aroused. I am often amazed at the end of a session at just how much I have drooled, and again that little twinge of humiliation can be quite exciting."Joanne
Ball gags are so much fun, and they prevent the wearer from talking and makes swallowing difficult too which is why I love playing with them and so does sub'r'.
So read on to find out what I thought of it once it had arrived.
Forbidden Pleasures is a company that I have had my eye on for a while now, and they carry some very nice products.
They caught my eye on Twitter when they announced a Sunday Market style of event where you could try to barter the price of any sex toys that you were interested in.
"From a submissives perspective actually fitting this harness and doing the ropework is probably one of the sexiest things that I have experienced."Joanne
Always up for a laugh, I had a look through their BDSM section, and my eyes nearly fell out of my head when I saw the House Of Eros Leather And Rope Breast Binder. I had to have one for sub'r' to wear on play sessions.
So I entered into a bartering session in my bestest cockney 'Dell Boy' accent on Twitter and managed to get myself a nice discount. It was a done deal, and I sat back waiting for it to arrive so that I could give it the Joanne's Reviews treatment.
I am a big fan of BDSM play, and one of the most straightforward pieces of equipment that everyone should have is the humble blindfold.
Good for not just BDSM play, a blindfold is a great way to curtail someones primary sense, their vision. This heightens expectation and all of the other senses.
"I think everyone should have a blindfold in their sex toy collection. A blindfold is such a cheap addition, yet they can add so much pleasure to any form of play."Joanne
I saw this lovely example of an adjustable blindfold on sale at Bondara in their Obey range, and I just had to have one.
I bought this one to play with myself and also to use on sub'r', so let me tell you all about it and why I think it's excellent value for money.
Whenever I think of corsets in a BDSM environment, I immediately think of black leather with shiny chrome fittings, and I think leather corsets look so amazing.
So amazing in fact that we had to get one in to review and so we bought the Allure Leather Cupless Buckle and Zip Corset for the lovely sub'r' for her dungeon sessions, and I have to say she looks delightful in it.
"This corset looks fantastic on sub'r', and it has the added benefit of making her feel so sexy and confident too. Having her breasts exposed means that from a BDSM standpoint lots of fun can be had with her nipples and with a little rope some breast binding can be enjoyed too."Joanne
This is a kinky corset that not only looks incredible sub'r' but also is very functional too and sub'r' absolutely adores wearing it at every opportunity. I must say that it has some very eye-catching features as I am sure you will agree.
So let me tell you what we think of the Allure Leather Cupless Buckle and Zip Corset after sub'r' has had an opportunity to wear it for some intense BDSM sessions.
I love it when a product comes along that I tumble head over heels for (no pun intended, but I did smile after typing that). The day that Stunt Cock and sub'r' came in from a shopping trip and showed me what they had procured my heart was a flutter.
I was overcome with what I can only describe a physical lust when I laid my eyes on the sexiest pair of boots that I have ever seen. Now, not being a prude and having been to kinky events and clubs I am not new to the boot scene, but these ones stole my heart.
"If you were to close your eyes and imagine a shiny pair of fuck me boots in your mind's eye, you would probably conjure up an image of these boots."Joanne
The design and materials look just so good and even though I knew that these ones wouldn't fit me as they were for sub'r' I had to try to get them on.
But alas, gutted, but still, with a twinkle in my eye, I grabbed them from sub'r' to take the pics for this review before she got to wear them and to put them through their paces. I cocked those pictures up and have tried taking pictures that would do them justice three times now. What you see on this review are a pair of kinky boots that have been worn to clubs on two occasions and they still look as good as new. But I digress, this review is all about sub'r' and her new found love of kinky boots, these ones in particular.
There is nothing quite like the feeling of a new collar being fastened around my neck. Make it a leather collar, and I love it even more.
When Bodara asked if I would be interested in reviewing a leather collar from their Bound Rose Gold Real Leather Collection I jumped at the chance.
"This collar for me embodies a kind of decadence as it is so luxurious, the leather is incredibly subtle, and the inside of the collar is lined with an almost fleece-like material that feels so comfortable against your skin."Joanne
I mean, who wouldn't want to try a luxurious gold coloured leather collar with a luxurious lining?
It looks amazing, but the all-important question is, does it look as good after a few hard sessions in a dungeon under a strict Master? Read on to find out.
I have received another fantastic collar from the kinky guys over at Meo.de to review. This one is from the puppy play range, and it features a stunning dog tag which I will talk about later in the review.
This item arrived with some other extremely naughty products, and I am enjoying reviewing them all so watch out for the reviews of such classics as a remote controlled egg vibrator and some kinky puppy knee pads.
"The 'O' Ring at the front as well as carrying the dog tag can be used to restrain your puppy or to put him or her on a leash to better control them, especially in a training environment."Joanne
Meo is a company based in Germany but they ship worldwide, and they have an incredible range of BDSM and other kinky products. I am becoming quite addicted to their range of products and have thoroughly enjoyed everything that I have reviewed for them.
Collar reviews are pretty hard to write as, well basically it's a collar but read on to see my thoughts on this little collar.
In an effort to explore some new kinky play I bought a pair of Black Faux Leather Bondage Mitts from Bondara.
My thoughts were that with a pair of mittens we could explore some pet play coupled with general bondage fun and games. Mittens are great for removing the ability to use your hands, and so puppy or pony play becomes more realistic.
"Put on a pair of leather mittens and a set of kitten or puppy ears together with a collar, and you can get to enjoy moving around on all fours without any of your usual worries."Joanne
I chose these mittens for both their price and also their features. I have enjoyed them but sub'r' has been put through her paces by Stunt Cock using them, and I will let you know what we think of them.
Are they an excellent addition to your BDSM toolkit or are there other options out there?
This is another review of a fantastic piece of footwear from Latex, Leather & Lace. Everyone loves a pair of fuck me boots, and these Pleaser Boots from Funtasma can undoubtedly be described this way as they look amazing.
Stunt Cock took his submissive to visit Latex, Leather & Lace (LL&L) last year and they came away having ordered this fantastic pair of boots.
"The wide heels, I have been told, are perfect for using as handles when giving a submissive a rather hard and fast rodgering in the missionary position."Joanne
If you have never actually visited the LL&L walk-in shop then I can highly recommend the experience, the staff are incredibly helpful and very knowledgeable. With an incredible range of sex toys, lingerie, fetish items and of course footwear to choose from it's a shop to visit if you are in the area (Barwell, Leicestershire).
The whole shop visit was a magical experience for sub 'r', and she still comments about it after six months. So why has it taken six months to write this review, well these boots have been really put to the test.
I was so excited when I laid eyes on this black and gold collar from meo.de. It was sent to me together with some other articles for free in exchange for a fair and honest review.
The Ring of O BDSM Collar is the first one that I am reviewing from this batch as, well, it is gorgeous. I love the high contrast look to it, and the large ring is a real feature. I enjoy reviewing BDSM products as it is my lifestyle choice as well.
"When Stunt Cock places a collar around my neck, I can feel all of my problems and anxiety fall away, putting on a collar both clears my mind and gets me into my submissive zone."Joanne
As a submissive, I seem to be collecting collars though, and this one is right up there with my favourites, and I will endeavour to tell you why that is within this review.
Meo produces some incredible kinky BDSM equipment. Their range of collars is massive, just check out their site to see what I mean. There is something there for anyone no matter what your tastes.
