I was cleaning the BDSM shelves at Babeland when they caught my eye. I stood. The pair of Kookie Cuffs and I were in a stare down, my own wide eyes meeting the ?OO? of their gaze.I?m going to buy my cuffs today, I thought.My first foray into BDSM was when I tied up a former boyfriend with silk hair scarves and blindfolded him with a particularly opaque padded bra. These were pre-Babeland employment days, so I used whatever tools were in my then-meager arsenal: My fingernails, my open palm, and a well-placed bullet vibrator. I remember feeling so thankful that he couldn?t see the occasional panicked expression that passed across my face. I don?t know what to do! And everything that I think about doing seems so silly!He stirred. Mm, that feels great."Shut the fuck up," I offered, wanting to add, "And let me think!" Better yet, let me run into the bathroom with my laptop so I can Google ?how to be a good domme +blindfold ?anxiety." Who put me in charge of this?Oh. Right. I did. Me and the naked man in my bed. We had discussed this night in advance over Vietnamese food, had come up with a safe word, planned and prepped. And there I was, standing over him with a bottle of lube and a bucket of nerves.That night, when all was said and (un)done, he rolled over to face me and thanked me, his eyes earnest. I had been so worried about doing everything the right way that I didn?t even see how much he had enjoyed himself. We never did manage a repeat performance, and less than two weeks later, we had broken up. That look on his face is something I still cherish.I bought the Kookie Cuffs because they are hot. Black leather, soft inside, a nice weight to them. I bought them because they are supremely comfortable, not tight or difficult to undo like my silk scarves. But most of all, I bought them because I deserve them, and I want to have them at the ready the next time they come in handy.Interested in having your own foray into some light bondage or some other fantasy play?
