“Will you restrain me and punch my balls through post-orgasm torture, please, Mistress? Like, keeping rubbing my cock with a silk scarf and also punching my balls? Please?”

I met Mr. CBT at a play party in Philly this past summer. I wasn’t expecting to pick anyone up, let alone a grimy, little pain pig. I’d been to this party before, and had been nonplussed the other two times I went. However, I’d hit a point where I felt like I’d outgrown my current skill set, and was ready for a new challenge. My friend Victoria Veil and I happened to meet “Magnum” and his friend Ed at the party. Magnum and Ed were possibly the two most vanilla-looking people I’ve ever met at a fetish event. I judged them to be tourists looking for “wild girls.”

I was wrong. Ed was a mannerly visitor to the kinky side, and Magnum was a something-fucking-else down-dog sub dressed in nondescript clothes. He pulled me aside and quietly said that no one, including Ed, knew he was “into this stuff.” He then confided in me that he used to date a well-known local Domme who once told him she’d never seen anyone take an ass-beating like he could. I wasn’t sure if I should believe him, but we exchanged numbers because I let my guard down.

Flash forward to a month later when Magnum is bound and gagged with the hot pink NS Novelties Sinful wrist cuffs and ball gag I received for review. Oddly enough, I didn’t actually have either of these things in my cache of toys then, so I was excited to finally get a feel for what I like and didn’t like. (I do have a beautiful dental gag for when I play Mean Dentist, mind you. Come see me for a cleaning.) In short, Magnum and the Sinful toys were very similar-they delivered what they said they’d do and rose to my expectations. However, all could use a little work too.

Between the two items that I reviewed in the Sinful line, the wrist cuffs were my favorite. They’re more durable than I expected, to be honest. I restrained muscular Magnum with them during various cock and ball tortures, and the cuffs withstood his numerous attempts to break out of them. They’re made from shiny, patterned hot pink vinyl, black neoprene, and nickel-free hardware. I’m very into the smell and texture of leather, but I am pleased with how much of a beating the Sinful wrist cuffs have taken without showing signs of wear or strain. The materials are also a plus for an vegans or others who prefer to avoid animal product goods. Additionally, as a person with annoyingly sensitive skin who immediately reacts to nickel in the form of red, itchy patches of skin, I really appreciate the hardware choice.

The only recommendation that I have for the cuffs is that NS Novelties do away with the short connecting chain on the one cuff. It’s not a bad feature, but the cuffs would be perfectly fine without the addition. I’m not quite sure how much the chain can take, but I do know that a simple double ended clip is a convenient way to restrict a sub just a little more.

Overall, the Sinful wrist cuffs do get a pass and a place in my toy bag!

 

Sinful Ball Gag

Now, the Sinful ball gag has a special place in my life for its role in an awkward pervert moment. I had recently used the gag on Magnum and had left it on my towel rack to dry after a washing. I left it there for a few weeks, and the ball gag rested on its brass perch while I went to visit friends in the Dirty South. Upon my return, my sweet, straight-laced dad came to pick me up at the airport and take me home. My dear dad also has a tiny bladder and had to use the bathroom at my house. I quickly ran upstairs to make sure my Keeper and Hitachi Magic Wand were out of sight. It was only after Dad used the bathroom and then headed home that I realized my cleaning error.

HOT FUCKING SHIT. I LEFT THE BRIGHT PINK BALL GAG OUT OF THE TOWEL RACK.

Dad knows now

 

 

 

Thankfully, my dad hasn’t said anything. I hope he either a) didn’t notice it, or b) dismissed it as a cat toy.

And a toy it certainly is. Like its counterpart, the Sinful gag is made with two-toned hot pink vinyl and nickel-free hardware, as well as ABS plastic for the actual gag part. The ball also has holes in it to facilitate easier breathing when the gag is in use.

As far as functionality, the Sinful ball gag definitely works to keep a sub quiet and in high-drool mode. According to the packaging, the Sinful gag is “designed for extended wear.” I disagree. Due to the stiff vinyl and its somewhat rough edges coupled with the metal fastenings on the straps, the gag becomes quite uncomfortable to wear when it’s tightly buckled for longer than a few minutes. As Magnum told me, “The gag digs in and starts to hurt after a while.” Gag aren’t usually comfortable by nature, which is to be expected. However, since this toy seems to cause some not so fun discomfort due to the construction of the straps, I’ll only save it for when I feel like being particularly mean. Otherwise, the gag, lovely as it looks, is best for brief period (no longer than a few minutes, really) use.

Also, be sure to wash and air dry the gag immediately. It will smell like brand new sneakers for a week if you don’t.

The Sinful ball gag also gets a pass, but it’s not the first ball gag I’ll reach for when playing due to the strap issue.

Overall, NS Novelties’s Sinful line looks like a lot of fun overall, and I certainly use the wrist cuffs in the not too distant future (OK, tonight). The gag is OK, but I suggest it for people who are just figuring out what they may like. The Sinful ball gag is a good one to start with. More advanced players may not be as keen on it. Both of these items, as well as the other items in the series, are available in hot pink or in shiny black vinyl.

Another great thing about these toys is that they are affordable and easy to acquire. You can certainly swing by your local adult and sex shop to see if they carry them. For the ease of online purchasing, you can order the Sinful wrist cuffs right here and the Sinful ball gag here.

XOXO,
