When you think about BDSM, uneasy thoughts of whips, ball gags and collars spring to mind, but while BDSM can include all of those things and more, it doesn’t have to be scary. The beauty of BDSM is that you can take it as far as you are comfortable with going, whether that’s a little bit of spanking or some light bondage. And, hey, if your idea of kink is just wearing an easy-to-remove blindfold, that’s fine too.

BDSM is coming out of the shadows. According to Saskia Michel, commanding officer at  “Since 50 Shades of Grey hit the market, people have been way more interested in exploring bondage and kink. We’re seeing people becoming more and more adventurous with this: simple whips and handcuffs are no longer cutting the mustard. People now want full latex clothing, masks and leather body harnesses (which we are also seeing in high fashion overseas). People are definitely becoming more open-minded, curious and kinky.” Time to explore your limits and have some fun.

To help you on your journey (and if masks and latex clothing are a bit too much too soon), we’ve selected the best BDSM toys to gently introduce you to the world of BDSM. Go forth and get your Fifty Shades of Grey on.
