Fantasy By Cara Sutra Beginners Bondage Kit – Pleasure Panel Review (Minxy Mischief)

Fantasy By Cara Sutra Beginners Bondage Kit Review

by Pleasure Panel reviewer Minxy Mischief

I’d like to thank Cara for sending me the Fantasy By Cara Sutra Beginners Bondage Kit (Black) to test and review.

The Fantasy By Cara Sutra Beginners Bondage Kit comes with everything you need to delve into the world of bondage. The 8 piece kit comprises of wrist cuffs, ankle cuffs, collar and leash, blindfold, breathable ball gag, 10 meters of bondage rope and a flogger. Also included is a print out of hint, tips and advice from Cara to help you on your way to some amazing fun! The kit is designed with beginners in mind but that doesn’t mean those who are already into bondage can’t get full use from the kit too.

The Fantasy By Cara Sutra Beginners Bondage Kit comes in a nice sturdy box that you can use to store the items when not in use. Each piece in the set matches and there is some lovely attention to detail with the buckles. The quality of each piece is really nice. I checked the box to see if it was real or faux leather but it doesn’t say and you would be hard pushed to tell the difference. The quality of the faux fur that lines a few of the items is really nice and very soft against your skin. Very little of the fur shed, some is always expected with new fur items. Each piece of the kit has a specific purpose. They can be used individually or together. The only thing you need to add is some imagination and some scissors but more about those later.

The wrist cuffs are made from a nice soft, supple leather-like material lined with nice quality faux fur. I really like the buckle detail on them. I have very small wrists and often find normal sizes for wrists are too big. I didn’t have too much if an issue with these. Fastened on the last hole which makes the cuffs about 7 inches which made them nice and snug on me. I was able to wriggle free of the cuffs but I do have small wrists. They didn’t just slip out, I did have to try. Good to know I could wriggle free in an emergency if I had to. The cuffs do have several holes so you can get a snug fit no matter your size, I measured they could go up to around 10 inches. The wrist cuffs come with a fully detachable short chain with spring clips on each end. The chain including the clips measures around 6 inches. You attach these to the D rings on the cuffs. I found the wrist cuffs super comfortable to wear, the fit was snug and the fur lining made sure I didn’t chafe at all while wearing them. At no point did they dig in at all and they left no marks on my wrists. I felt restrained and never uncomfortable. The possibilities are endless when playing with the cuffs.

The ankle cuffs are identical to the wrist cuffs except the ankle cuffs are slightly longer, the smallest size they go is 8.5 inches which is on the last hole up to 12 inches on the largest size. Also included is the same chain that comes with the wrist cuffs and it attaches them together also measuring 6 inches. Again the ankle cuffs were a great snug fit, I had them as small as they could go. Again no chafing or marks left on my ankles. Very comfortable with the faux fur lining, I happily wore them for quite a while. I don’t want to repeat myself as they are the same as the wrist cuffs, only slightly longer.

The collar is very similar to the wrist and ankle cuffs, only a slightly more chunky fastening and each hole is reinforced with an eyelet. It features a nice sturdy D ring in the middle of the front of the collar that you can attach the matching leash or some rope if your imagination should take you there. Again it is lined with the faux fur making it extremely comfortable. I have a small neck, 14 inches and the collar on the 2nd last hole (couldn’t get it to fasten on the end hole) was snug and comfortable. The collar goes up to about 17.5 inches so will fit a range of people comfortably. Having my partner place the collar on me made me feel very submissive which got me into the right head space for some bondage fun . The detachable leash is made from the same leather like material as the rest of the kit but it does feel thinner and slightly flimsy in quality compared to the rest of the kit however It really doesn’t need to be more heavy duty than it is. It attaches to the D ring on the collar with a swivel trigger snap hook clip and including the clip measures about 41.5 inches long which provides plenty of length for your partner to lead you around as they like.

The blindfold is sturdy and well made. Lined with the same faux fur as the other items and an elastic band to go around the back of the head, it provides a comfortable fit. The elastic band measures around 13 inches. It does stretch a little but I found it a great fit. The blindfold is one of the better blindfolds I have had, it blocks out about 99% of light which is great. Using the blindfold you are able to heighten the other senses making it an essential part of the kit. I found it was also a great blindfold to get a good nights sleep!

The ball gag is in the same matching leather like material and has a matching buckle like the rest of the items. The hard plastic breathable ball measures about 5.5 inches in circumference. I was unable to wear the ball gag for any length of time due to risk of dislocation but this is down to my medical condition and not down to the quality of the item. I had the gag on at the smallest fitting possible. There is a 7 inch difference in adjustment from the shortest to the longest fitting. I was disappointed I wasn’t able to test the ball gag out further as it is very well made and sturdy too.

The bondage rope measures approx 10 metres. It comes with small pieces of tape on the ends to stop it fraying but I took these off and whipped the ends of the rope with some cotton thread which is easy to do. The cotton rope is great quality and long enough to do a range of different ties on your partner. If you have never used a piece of rope to tie your partner before then you can easily find lots of how to videos online. Always make sure you have a pair of sharp scissors on hand in case of an emergency. A pair of EMT shears are ideal and not expensive. The cotton rope feels fantastic against your skin. It is a great activity on it’s own and I felt like it was ideal for some bonding time as there is a lot of communication in rope work. It doesn’t have to be hard or complicated and it’s very easy for a beginner to do some simple ties and knots. It’s a lot of fun! I also really enjoyed the sensation of the rope being removed, I found it very erotic and it can leave some pretty rope marks on your skin.

Finally the flogger! Again in the same leather like material it is extremely well made with a generous sized ring at the end so that you can hang it up if you so wish. The flogger is quite light weight which we think is ideal for a beginner. The handle is wrapped in the leather like material making it very comfortable to hold. It measures approx 6 inches and the falls, of which there are 15, are approx 13 inches long. Combined with the blindfold sensation play with the flogger was great, the blindfold really helps to heighten the senses. Feeling the soft falls trailed over your body feels great, very erotic. I enjoyed the sensation of random flicks with it too. We also tried the flogger with a bit more force on my bottom and it had a nice sting to it but not too much that it would put a beginner off. I think if it had been more heavy duty then someone without experience could possibly do some unintentional damage. For beginners the flogger is perfect.

Overall the Fantasy By Cara Sutra Beginners Bondage Kit is a fantastic set for beginners. It gives you a taste of lots of different aspects of bondage and because you can use each item on it’s own or a number of items combined it makes it ideal to get you started and enables you to explore what you like and maybe don’t like about bondage. None of the items are scary or off putting at all. It is a tasteful kit that has been well thought of. All that is needed is some imagination and a pair of scissors! My partners favourite items were the matching wrist and ankle cuffs and my favorites were the collar and the rope. It is lots of fun trying each thing in turn and then thinking of ways to combine different items. Countless hours of fun can be had with this kit.

The Fantasy By Cara Sutra Beginners Bondage Kit is well made and well put together but there are a few very, very minor things that we feel would have made the kit even better and given it the full 10/10. Matching eyelets on the wrist and ankle cuffs like the collar has to prolong the life of the cuffs, studs on the edge of the eye mask to reinforce where the elastic attaches, the leash being slightly heavier possibly similar to the strap on the ball gag and the ends of the rope whipped instead of the tape it does have. These are personal opinions and feel like we are being extremely picky with these things. Compared to similar bondage items and kits on the market the quality is far superior and definitely more high end.
