Loving Joy Bound Nubuck Leather Choker with O Ring Review
By Pleasure Panel reviewer Wriggly Kitty
When I saw the Loving Joy Bound Nubuck Leather Choker with O Ring from Loving Joy available for a review, I jumped at the chance. I love collars. They put me into a submissive headspace when I play and look great with my corsets for events.
According to the marketing, “Bound is an elegant and luxurious bondage brand”, so I really couldn’t wait to get this in my hands.
The choker arrived in a protective plastic slip cover and I was really impressed with it from the off. It’s a hefty thing, and finished to a really high standard. The brown leather with brass trimmings makes it stand out in a sea of black and silver, and with the internal padding, it really did scream quality.
It has five holes to accommodate a range of neck sizes, and the clasp has an eyelet, allowing it to be padlocked in place. The o-ring at the front is decorative but strong enough to be practical. I liked that it was sewn into the layers of the collar, so there was no metal back plate against my skin. I was also really happy to see other items in the range; the coordinating leather leash caught my eye as it would look very dramatic when used together and could lead (!) to a lot of fun.
Unlike other collars I own, the Loving Joy Bound choker has been designed with longer wear in mind – extra padding makes it very comfortable. I did wear it the other day, to test the comfort and once used to the feel of it, completely forgot it was on!
However, this does add to the weight, and as mentioned, I was aware of the choker at first. With my favourite collar, it’s a lot thinner and I easily forget it’s there after a minute or two. This one took a lot longer as it does slightly restrict natural movement. For people who are new to bondage or are unsure of pressure on their neck, this may be off-putting. I quite liked it and think that would add to any headspace during play.
I was slightly disappointed with the finish of the loop that holds the tail in place. The edges weren’t smooth and I was a little aware of that at times, as it irritated ever so slightly. That said, I did spend most of the time sitting at my desk and typing, so wasn’t in the same position as I’d normally expect to be wearing a collar in.
My other issue was that the clasp was very offset to the side of my neck once the choker was on. I used the middle of the five holes and only the smallest size-setting allows for the o-ring and buckle to sit diametrically opposite. That said, it’s a minor gripe.
I can’t wait to actually use this choker in play or wear out to an event. I think it’ll be in my toy box for a long while to come!
Loving Joy Bound Nubuck Leather Choker with O Ring rating: 9/10. Gorgeous collar, suitable for wearing for long periods.
