A spreader bar is a bondage item mainly used in the BDSM scene. It is a rod, often made of metal, which ensures that you can force the submissive partner, orin a position where he or she has spread legs or arms. A spreader bar is also often referred to as a spreader bar, a term that came over from England.
The rod can be used in combination with other SM articles such as boeien or bondage rope. The submissive is forced into a position that gives the Master or Mistress complete controlover the body of the one who is tied. This can create a power game , both between the Dominant and the submissive and between two bed partners.
What can you do with a spreader bar?
You can use a spreader bar in many different ways. This means that you can mainly use it to force your partner into different positions. But you can also use the bar for different purposes. One of those goals is to exercise control . This is mainly the case in the BDSM scene. But you can also use a spreading bar together with your partner to experiment in the bedroom.
The bondage bar is an accessible SM article that can be used very well during a BDSM scene. The Dominant can exercise very good control with this bar. The bar ensures that the submissive is literally forced into a certain position. This can be a sitting, standing or lying position . As a Master or Mistress, you can expose the intimate parts of your sub or restrict someone's freedom of movement . With the bar you can spread both the legs and the arms.
Spread the legs - You can spread the legs with a spreader bar by tying it at the ankles or between the knees. If you fasten the bar between the ankles, your sub can no longer walk. If you clamp the bar between the knees, you force your submissive into a bent position . Spreading your legs, whether sitting, lying, or standing, will help you reach your partner's intimate areas. This allows you to reward him or her with a way of gratification, for example with a sextoy or through oral sex. You can also choose to punish your sub in this position, for example by using an intimate clamp or a speculum.
Spread your arms - You can also spread your arms with a bar. This is especially helpful if you as a Dominant don't want the sub to touch you with his or her arms, only when you say so. You can spread the submissive's arms wide apart and allow the submissive to assume an uncomfortable or uncomfortable position. This puts the muscles to work extra and your partner hurts a lot.
In combination with cuffs or a bondage rope
You almost always use a spreader in combination with a bondage rope or cuffs. Some models already have cuffs that are attached to the bar with rings. Other models have rings at the end to which you can attach a rope or a pair of hand or enkelboeien. This way you can also vary with how tight you tie someone. For example, with a rope you can secure your partner as tightly as you want. In addition, by using a rope in combination with the bar, you can also tie other body parts. A bondage rope is often 5 or 10 meters long.
A bar to spread the legs or arms is not only a handy tool that you use during a BDSM scene. Even if you want to experiment with your partner in the bedroom , you can use a spreader bar together . You don't have to be a Master or Mistress to dominate someone. Maybe your partner likes to dominate you from time to time and keep control of you. Or you like being tied up.
Also for beginners
A spreader bar is an accessible SM article that is easy to use . It cannot harm a person quickly and a spreader bar can be expanded with cuffs or bondage ropes. Bondage rope may not be something you might soon be using as a layman in the SM field. But a pair of handcuffs, especially the models with Velcro , are easy to attach to a rod and also easy to use . If your partner does not like to have no freedom of movement, you can quickly remove the bar again. Always agree on a safe word and respect each other's boundaries.
What different types of spreader bars are there?
There are different types of bondage bars . We distinguish the following models and describe what they can be used for:
X spreader bar - A bondage bar in the shape of an X is a bar that allows youto tieyour hands and feet to the bar at the same time . This model has four rings on both ends to which you attach cuffs. You can tie your submissive's hands and legs on the back, but you can also strap your sub while standing in a bending position.
Adjustable bars - An adjustable bar is very suitable if you have different goals with your bondage game or if you want to get someone used to a restriction of freedom of movement . You can adjust the bar to the desired width that you want. This way you can decide for yourself whether you want to secure someone very narrow or wider.
Cuffs with cuffs - The standard spreader bar often has an O or D ring to which you can attach cuffs or ropes with or without a carabiner. But there are also models that already have buoys so that you do not have to buy them for example. Almost all cuffs are easy to adjust by means of a buckle or Velcro . So they fit everyone.
T-shaped spreader bar - A T-shaped spreader bar is great for tying your partner with the hands by the feet . This way you can tie the legs to the end of the bar and the wrists together in two cuffs on the rings in front. This way you can force your sub into a stooping position while standing.
Which spreader bar do I need?
Which spreader bar you need or can best buy depends on your wishes. For example, are you not at all familiar with bondage articles? Or are you already very experienced in this field? What do you want to spend and what attitude do you want to force your sub into? Those are important things to ask yourself.
Are you familiar with bondage?
Are you familiar with bondage? Then you probably already know what to look out for when tying someone up. You may know what your partner can take and how tightly you can tie someone up. You may also know how to handle a bondage rope . If that is the case, then you buy a bar with D or O rings where you can find handcuffs or bondage ropes of your choice.
Are you new to bondage? Then we recommend that you buy a spreader bar with adjustable cuffs with Velcro . In addition, you can not only attach the feet to it, but also the arms. This model is also relatively inexpensive and therefore very suitable for beginners.
What is your budget?
Wonder what you want to spend on a spreader bar. Prices range from € 60 to € 250. A more expensive model is often made of leather and especially suitable for the seasoned BDSM er . Often these models already have handcuffs. Then there are the models that are made of steel and have adjustable cuffs or rings or can be adjusted yourself. These models are in the middle class in terms of price and are therefore very suitable for men or women who have experimented with bondagemore often and go for quality. Finally, there are the models that are slightly cheaper . These are the rods in a price range from € 10 to € 60 . These are models that are very suitable for beginners because of the price, but also because they are often easy to use and are made of relatively cheap material that does not easily break or leave damage.
Do you want an adjustable model or not?
Depending on your purpose with the bar, you may wonder whether you want an adjustable model or not . An adjustable bar is very suitable to introduce your partner or sub to the restriction in freedom of movement that is imposed on him or her. But it is also an ideal modelfor the Dominant because you can increase the tension and control little by little. Adjustable models are models that are adjustable in length so that you can spread the legs or arms as desired.
How do you use and maintain a spreader bar?
How you use a bar depends very much on what your purpose is and which bar you bought. Do you have a model where the buoys are already included? Then it's a matter of putting your partner or sub in the position you want him or her in and attaching the cuffs. Do you have a bar that you still have to combine with cuffs or rope? Then read the step-by-step plan below:
Have you bought a spreader bar to which you still have to attach the buoys or rope? First check whether the cuffs you have fit on the bar. It would be a shame to start all excited at the idea of tying someone up and then the cuffs aretoo small or too big or don't fit on the bar.
In principle, all cuffs with a carabiner fit to an O-ring . Do you have a rod with a D-ring? Then it is not necessary to purchase buoys with a carabiner. Here you can attach hand or ankle cuffs that have an O-ring themselves.
Do you have a bondage rope that you want to use in combination with the bar? Then you can basically use any kind of rope . Pay close attention to how you attach the rope to the bar. You must use good knotting techniques to prevent the bar from slipping and injuring your partner during your game.
Did you find the right articles together? Then you can get started! Always start by attaching the cuffs to the wrists or ankles to get your sub used to the feeling of control. Especially if it is the first time that you are going to use a spreader bar or do BDSM.
Make sure the cuffs are not too tight or too loose and do not injure your partner by, for example, pinching off body parts.
Are the cuffs or ankle cuffs properly and is your partner used to the feeling? Then you attachthe bar to the cuffs . First force your sub into the position you want him or her in. For example on his or her knees or lying with the arms and legs on the back. It is very difficult to move once the bar is working.
If you have also attached the spreader, you can get started with the BDSM game you want to play. You can now do whatever you want with your partner or sub. Always keep it safe and agree on a code word with your partner. Never leave someone who is tied up alone. In the unlikely event that something pinches or happens, you have no insight into it.
