Tips for Sleeping in Bondage

Posted on March 24th, 2010  ♥  Tags:   sleeping bondage   ♥  2 comments

Sleeping bound for me is one of the best experiences I have in self-bondage. First, the feeling of having successfully bound oneself in such a way that it will be impossible to get out for several hours. Then waking up having successfully completed the session the next morning.

For many (myself included) the preferred bondage is as strict as possible. Strict bondage however is hard to sleep in, because you will probably wake up several times during the night uncomfortable – which might be fun every now and then but for casual sleeping like during the work week you still need a good nights sleep. Here are a few tips I have come up with over my past few years of sleeping bound.

Keep It Simple.

For sleeping simple ties are better than complex ties for two reasons; getting in the bondage, and getting out of it in the case of an emergency. I tend to wait till I am really tired before I go to bed, so it has to be simple enough to get in with half a mind.

Keep It Easy.

When you sleep your heart rate lowers, and with lower heart rate generally lower blood pressure. A tie that might not normally cut off circulation during a day session while you are hot and bothered just might at night, especially if you sleep on it wrong. Keep ties looser than “normal” both for comfort and safety.

Bound To Self.

I have found when I tie me to myself instead of to objects, its easier to get quality sleep. For example I would prefer to tie my wrists together and to my waist, than to tie my wrists to the bed posts. I think it is because it allows movement to adjust pressure and posture easier, and if can be done without waking up.

Ropes rather than Chains.

Chains get cold and always wake me up when rolling over them. They are also fairly noisy.

Air is good.

This should be straight forward. Do not gag yourself, you need to breathe. The only thing I allow on my neck are leather collars because they cannot tighten more than how it was put on. If you do use a collar follow the above rule and put it on looser than normal, its pretty easy to pass out from lack of blood flow to your brain. Also avoid camping sleeping bags or other things you would tie up over your head to be contained in a bag. After a while you will use up all the Oxygen inside, also not good.

Sleepsacks specifically designed for bondage should be safe for the most part, as that is what they were designed for. If it has a hood just be sure you can breathe through it or through holes in it.

Overestimate your release time.

If you have work in 8 hours, make sure your release mechanism happens at most after 6 hours. You can only use excuses like “I had to stop at the petrol depot” so many times to explain why you are late for work. It is hard to sleep if you are worried about your release not releasing in time.

What are your thoughts/concerns on sleeping wrapped in plastic? I assume circulation could be a problem, air flow, etc... Tho I've done it before in a room w/ A/C and woke up maybe 4 hours later in a pool of sweat. Never gone longer.

    I also have tried but have never made it very long from uncomfort. I'd have water nearby and of course no plastic on head. I have had far fewer circulation problems with plastic wrap than i have ropes since its like a 2nd skin if wrapped right.
