Wow what a delight it was opening this up! Double thanks this time Cara; firstly for having created such a great product and secondly for offering it for review!

I first noticed it has a good solid weight but isn’t scarily or overwhelmingly heavy for beginners. The box itself is glossy and beautifully presented and the kit is packaged neatly in a clear re-sealable bag. So neatly in fact that I was worried about getting it all back in the box for storing but it’s not been a problem whatsoever. It’s travel friendly. I mean, I probably wouldn’t take it backpacking but I was happy to sling it in my bag and catch a train to London.

Fantasy By Cara Sutra Beginner's Bondage Kit Pleasure Panel Kali Rose Review-8

A couple of A4 pages of instructions and tips fall out upon opening (as well as a few bits of harmless red fluff) and the information is perfect for a beginner. Straight to the point it delivers all the basic ‘need to knows’ when entering into a bondage experience. From emotional safety to physical safety, language, techniques and tips, this is obviously more than a passion for Cara Sutra, she clearly wants to ensure everyone gets the most out of their experience, so much so that she offers her direct email address for any questions, concerns or feedback (now that’s customer service!) I think for a newbie the sense of trust in the equipment and its creator’s intentions is paramount to a healthy and even therapeutic or transformational fun experience.

I opted for the kit in red, which I love because it’s vibrant and gorgeous but my man said he would have preferred it in black, which is lucky because that’s the other colour it’s available in! The faux red leather contrasts beautifully with the chrome buckles and studs.

The red fluff I mentioned earlier came from the luxurious feeling and super comfortable cuffs, collar and blindfold, all lined with red faux fur eliminating any chances of rubbing or chafing where they sit against the skin.

Collar and Leash

Fantasy By Cara Sutra Beginner's Bondage Kit Pleasure Panel Kali Rose Review-6

The collar itself is quite wide and super luxurious feeling. I have a long thin neck and really appreciate it as I find some collars too thin, but I wonder if it may feel too thick for some lesser-necked individuals. We didn’t really use the leash but it seems pretty standard, it’s a lot thinner and flimsier than the collar, has quite a small hand loop and quick release clip.

Ankle and Wrist Cuffs

Fantasy By Cara Sutra Beginner's Bondage Kit Pleasure Panel Kali Rose Review-2

I have nothing but good things to say about these little beauties. They’re super soft and comfortable to wear, however I might try to make an extra hole for my tiny wrists to feel properly snugly restrained. I’m very impressed with the quality; they are well made, feel sturdy and very durable. Even the chains, that don’t feel incredibly strong, took a lot of my weight from a suspension point. No I didn’t put all my weight on them, as that would have been pushing it!

As the chains are detachable on both sides it means the cuffs can be worn independently just for pottering around the house and doing sexy hoovering up.

The Flogger

Fantasy By Cara Sutra Beginner's Bondage Kit Pleasure Panel Kali Rose Review-1

It has a really beautiful light tingly bite perfect for teasing and caressing and while it has a small sting if you really put your back into it, there is certainly no danger of a beginner getting carried away and doing too much damage with this. It’s different to the one on the picture, which is full red; this one has a red leather (grip-able) handle and black tail and the contrast makes it more athletically pleasing. It also has an o-ring for easy hanging up.

The Ball Gag

Fantasy By Cara Sutra Beginner's Bondage Kit Pleasure Panel Kali Rose Review-5

The ball itself is a good size, it’s quite rigid and has plenty of breathing holes (Or drainage holes for copious amounts of droolage… Very sexy!) The straps are thin, soft and comfortable around the face but with no fur. I take massive issue with the free sliding ball though. While it may work well for some people I couldn’t see the point, it makes it feel less secure and every time I moved my lips (and I moan and groan plenty) they got caught in the openings creating a non-sexy pinching pain which left a tingling on the corners of my mouth even the next day. I’m going to see if I can pad them out somehow as I won’t be using it again until it hurts less. Plus I’m not massively keen on the plastic so I think this is the only piece that lets the kit down. But also super exciting to have in a beginners kit!

The Rope

Fantasy By Cara Sutra Beginner's Bondage Kit Pleasure Panel Kali Rose Review-7

Yum. This beautiful soft red cotton rope is quite thick and the vibrant red looks and feels gorgeous against the skin. It doesn’t feel particularly strong and I wouldn’t try suspending on it, but then it wouldn’t be in a beginners kit if that’s what it was for. At 10 metres there is plenty for a newbie to play with. The ends of the rope are only loosely secured with tape so I may dip them in some red wax or tie a knot in them to avoid any fraying.

The Blindfold

Fantasy By Cara Sutra Beginner's Bondage Kit Pleasure Panel Kali Rose Review-4

This is also lined with fur and is ultra soft and comfy against the skin. It has a one size fits all elastic band and is excellent at blocking everything out. It looks great as it matches the chunky and substantial cuffs and collar.

So in conclusion…

With eight pieces of mostly good quality, thoughtfully designed and ascetically beautiful equipment you get a lot of kit here for your buck! Individually most items in the Fantasy by Cara Sutra Beginner’s Bondage Kit would be worth well over £10 a piece so it’s a massive saving when bought together, not to mention a beautiful matching set! Overall the whole thing is amazing however I think she sells it a bit short with her potential customers; while great for beginners there is stuff in here that I would consider intermediate to advanced, such as the ball gag and rope. I introduced it to one of my lovers who is a beginner and he was pretty intimidated though not as intimidated as he was when I forced him down on all fours blindfolded and gagged 😉

I was not expecting such quality products and overall high standard and have been super impressed with what’s been achieved here. All of the above coupled with her personal touch makes the Fantasy by Cara Sutra Beginner’s Bondage Kit a product I would definitely recommend, not just for beginners, and I look forward to getting plenty more use out of mine!
