Last year I was fortunate to have been able to review some of the fantastic offerings from Liebe Seele in Japan.
I love their range of bondage equipment, and so you can just imagine how excited I was when they got in touch again to ask if I would review some more kits for them.
"What flicks my switch the most is having the padlock fitted to the back of the collar. Knowing that it is locked in place has a huge psychological impact on me, and it gets me into a very submissive mindset, ready to serve."sun'r'
I was over the moon and beside myself with excitement as the Wine Red Collar we reviewed was my all-time favourite collar, up until now.
We were sent five items to review, and this is the first of those reviews. I am starting with the new Deluxe Curved Collar from the Wine Red Collection.
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 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.
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.
For any of you not in the know Honour is a UK company that has two physical shops in Watford and Waterloo and they supply some incredible BDSM products to kinksters all around the world.
They are a company that I have had my eye on for a while, and so I was delighted when they got in touch with me out of the blue to ask if I would be interested in reviewing some of their HNRX Extreme Suppression Bondage System range of BDSM restraints.
"The smell of this rubber is fantastic and it gets me very turned on."Joanne
This range of restraints was launched to celebrate their 30th birthday, and I didn't have to think long and hard before sending a resounding yes back to them. I love BDSM fun and games, and their products are fantastic.
I was sent a lovely rubber collar a pair of rubber wrist restraints and a pair of double snap hooks to review, and we had so much fun putting them through their paces. So read on to find out what we think of this range of products.
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 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.
Anyone who reads my reviews knows that I am a sucker for a beautiful BDSM collar. I am a gal who loves to feel that form or restraint around my neck while getting up to all sorts of kinky fun.
You can imagine my excitement when the kinky boys at meo.de asked me if I would be interested in reviewing another collar for them. This time one of their black and white leather bondage collars. Naturally, I couldn't refuse such an offer, and here I am about to fill you in on the details of what I thought if it.
"Meo always impresses me with their Meo branded products; they take the time to source the best materials and artisans, I can say with my hand on my heart all of the products that I have reviewed for them have been first class. I just love reviewing for them, they are so kinky, and their product range has to be seen to be believed."Joanne
This collar is from the same range as the black and white leather bondage wrist cuffs that I recently reviewed from Meo.de, and it looks fantastic.
I have been reviewing products from Meo.de for about four months now, and I am always impressed by their service and the range of products on their site.
These German guys know their stuff when it comes to BDSM, and their equipment is fantastic. I consider myself to be very submissive and so I always love it when they send me a collar to review.
When I wear it I am owned, I am his property, and I will do anything for him. It sets me into a very submissive mindset, and that is something I love.Joanne
To a submissive a collar of one of the most important pieces of BDSM equipment that you can own. Its significance is very deep between a submissive and their Dominant.
The latest collar that they have sent me to review is their Lady MEO - SLAVE collar in gold, and it's a beauty. It was sent to me for free in exchange for a fair and honest review.
This year I've been lucky enough to have already reviewed a metal collar and I was over the moon when MEo.de sent me their Euphoria collar for free in exchange for an honest appraisal of it.
I really enjoyed reviewing their lockable metal collar and so I was really keen to see how this one would measure up against it.
Collars have huge significance in the BDSM community and metal collars are often used for Kajira training or dungeon play due to their unyielding properties.
I love the cold feel of steel when it's against my skin and this one delivers that feeling well. It's also quite substantial and so you really know it's there, its weight and hardness are a constant reminder of its presence and that is one of the things that I really like about it.Joanne
I could hardly contain my excitement whilst waiting for it to arrive. I, Joanne the submissive was very excited to be getting to try on and evaluate another metal collar. So what do I think of this one? Read on to find out.
It isn't often that I get to review jewellery but this is no ordinary piece of jewellery. It's actually a very cleverly designed kinky BDSM play device.
Inspired by the legendary feisty female explorer and pilot Amelia Earhart this beautiful necklace has a double use.
I love the fact that I can wear this in public and just touching it brings back so many sexy playtime memories. It is also nice to be able to hand it over to a play partner and have them tease me with it.Joanne
It isn't often that you can get away with walking around with a BDSM toy hanging from your neck and so I just love the concept of this piece of jewellery.
I was sent this stunning metal submissives collar by the guys at Meo.de in exchange for a fair and honest review.
I have a few collars that I enjoy wearing when having a little BDSM play but so far these have only been leather ones. This is my first metal collar and I was a bit worried about wearing it for reasons I will explain later in the review.
For anyone not aware, collars in the BDSM community have huge importance and are a sign of ownership. Submissives gain a lot of strength from collars and they are treasured items. My past collars have all been earned and presented to me as a sign of respect from my Dom. A new collar is a big thing and I relished the thought of putting this one to the test.Joanne
Meo sent me this collar along with lots of other BDSM goodies and I have really enjoyed using them all. This collar though stands out and I absolutely adore it. But why is it that I like it compared to my leather collars?
