With more and more people getting involved in BDSM, the market has replied by offering up hundreds of options of related sex toys. It’s hard to sift through all of the options, so this collection of reviews aims to simplify things a bit, looking at the 10 best spreader bars and cuffs for couples. Read on to find out more!
This spreader bar by Bondage Boutique is clearly well thought out. The bar is metal, making it sturdy and durable, and it packs away into 3 easy pieces should you wish to travel with it. It’s adjustable, and with some simple metal pins, can be stretched from 18 to 26 inches, to truly test your partners flexibility.
Even the most organised of us lose things, and to help with this they’ve included 4 padlocks and 8 keys so you’re never caught short for options.
With cuffs which can be adjusted from 7.5 to 12 inches in circumference, you can tighten them up so they fit just perfectly. A solid option for a good price!
These simple yet highly effective leather cuffs are highly versatile. The wrist straps, with a 9 hole buckle fastening system, can be adjusted from 5-9 inches, the ankle cuffs from 8-14 inches.
With strong nylon bed straps, if you’re travelling with these they should fit any double sized bed you come across. With easy seatbelt style clasps, unfastening the restraints has never been easier, should you need a quick break for any reason.
This also means you can leave the straps adjusted to fit your bed, making the fitting process much simpler!
This option from Sportsheets is simple but effective, and comes in at a very competitive price. The bar is a fixed 16 inches, but the neoprene and velcro cuffs can be adjusted from 6 to 14 inches, which is more than some of the other options on this list.
The bar is coated to keep things quiet if you’re in a shared house or hotel, making this a great, simple travel option. It doesn’t pack down though, which might make it tricky to pack in smaller bags.
A slightly more versatile version of the one reviewed, this offering from Sportsheets is both adjustable and can be packed easily in 3 compact pieces. The bare metal aesthetic is clean and exciting, the feel of cold steel on the skin exciting for some.
The velcro cuffs are simple yet effective, and easily removable when need be. The spring loaded pin is quick to adjust and offers a wide variety of widths, simply line it up with the appropriate hole and hey-ho you’re ready to go.
This spreader bar from Bondage Boutique is serious stuff. You can adjust it from 23.5 to an impressive 35.5 inches, enough to stretch even the most flexible of partners.
While it can reach impressive sizes, when packed down into three pieces, the longest is only 15.25 inches, making it easy to store or pack. It doesn’t come with cuffs, so is more suitable for those with a bit of bondage gear already rather than someone just getting into it. For those looking to expand (literally) their collection, this makes a great option.
This padded spreader bar makes a wonderful choice for those entering into the world of bondage. The padded and comfortable cuffs can be adjusted from 13 to 20 inches, making for a precise and enjoyable fit, offering quick and simple release when you want.
Not just for beginners, this well made spreader will suit experts looking for a less serious session, or a nice extra to add to their arsenal of toys and straps! One of the cheapest options on this collection of reviews, why not give it a go – there’s nothing to lose.
You’re probably getting the picture by now – this review loves most things that come from bondage boutique, and this offering is no different. With simple and strong O-ring pins to adjust the bar from 25 to 36.5 inches, and strong n safe velcro on the cuffs (which open up to 14 inches in circumference) there’s really nothing this set of bar and cuffs could need!
It breaks down into three pieces for easy packing and storage, with no unwieldy bars left over. A great option, which comes highly recommended!
While this set isn’t adjustable, that’s about the only bad thing about it. Inflatable and velvety soft, this is a truly exquisite little set, and brilliantly priced as well! When deflated, it packs down incredibly small, with no rigid bars getting in the way.
When inflated, it’s a solid 29 inches, which should be a great intermediate size for most people. The blindfold is a lovely addition, and the quick release clips on the cuffs make for quick and safe escape. The O rings are also compatible with other gear should you like to combine equipment.
This bar from Scandal is beautiful, bordering on a piece of artwork. The strong metal bar is padded in a decorative material to reduce clanking, and the bar itself is truly sturdy.
With 8 different holes for adjustability between 24 and 36 inches, this will be a good option for most people, though it doesn’t come with straps so might not make a good choice for beginners just getting into bondage.
It is however compatible with most cuffs, making it a great addition to your collection.
Have we saved the best till last? What can’t this set do is the big question – the answer is, not much! With two bars, you can either restrain arms, legs, or both together, in whichever combinations of sizes and angles you like.
The long bar is 24 inches, the short one 10 inches, and it comes with 4 adjustable neoprene and velcro cuffs for easy and comfortable restraint. A nice thing about this set is that it includes a storage bag, so you can keep all the bars, cuffs, padlocks and keys together.
It also comes with a free blindfold and detachable collar! This would be a great first set to get into the world of bondage, maybe a kinky present for a special partner!
Spreaders bars and cuffs are the perfect toys for branching out in the world of BDSM. From larger, sturdier constructs to compact builds that you can hide in a draw, there’a all sorts of fun to be had that won’t cost you an arm and a leg!
