Rouge Garments Stainless Steel O-Ring Collar Review
By Tim Cash
As my girlfriend is a big fan of collars, or anything around her neck, we jumped at the chance to try the very nice looking Rouge Garments Stainless Steel O-Ring Collar for Cara Sutra’s Pleasure Panel.
The packaging of the Rouge Garments Stainless Steel O-Ring Collar did not look very nice when it arrived. The plastic was battered, and the backing card was not eye-catching or inspirational at all. The collar and the Allen key looked like they were just thrown into the packaging. If I had seen this on a shelf in a shop, I would probably have just walked past it. It would have looked better if there was no packaging at all, just the metal collar.
After we had gotten into the packaging, and disposed of it, we were much happier. The steel has a lovely solid feel, with a comforting weight. It was very cold to the touch. The metal was smooth, with no manufacturing marks.
The supplied Allen key easily removed the tiny bolt, allowing the Rouge Garments Stainless Steel O-Ring Collar to be opened. It was very stiff, which made placing it around my girlfriends neck rather difficult. After her sudden shock at the cold of the metal against her skin, I tried to close it and bolt it up. After dropping the bolt, and nearly losing it, I decided to spray with a bit of metal lubricant. This improved the collar so very much. I could put it around my girlfriend’s neck with so much more ease. It also helped putting the bolt in and tightening it securely.
The Rouge Garments Stainless Steel O-Ring Collar looked amazing, and my girlfriend loved the feel of it. It warmed up to skin temperature very quickly. It was very secure, and she could not get it off easily at all, without help. This is a collar that can be yanked on and pulled around with no risk to the collar, and without causing excess discomfort. It gives a good feeling of control when it is grabbed, and using it to move my girlfriend around. It has potential to be used with a leash, or to tie someone to the bed. We used it with some rope to make a little chest harness. This collar has many possible uses in the bedroom!
We didn’t get the collar very dirty, but it should be nice and easy to clean. It is stainless steel, but it is recommended that it is dried properly after cleaning to stop any corrosion.
It is worth noting that when I tried to put it around my male neck, it was uncomfortably tight. Unless you want something very tight around your neck, and your neck is not too slim, it would be worth checking the measurements.
We loved the Rouge Garments Stainless Steel O-Ring Collar. It feels great, looks amazing, and will be used a great many times. After lubricating the hinge, we could find no faults with it. It has a completely different feel to the soft leather and fabric collars that we own, which works well for the different levels of kink. I am not looking forward to the day that I lose the bolt or Allen key, though!
