I popped into Ann Summers on a recent weekend trip to Oxford. I don’t typically venture into Ann Summers as it is primarily lingerie and I’ve found the toys to be relatively tame.

However, I made an exception, and was actually pretty impressed with their range of BDSM restraints – clearly they’ve upped their game in this department since I was last in there.

I was drawn to the Femme Fatale Luxury Thigh to Cuff restraint (view at Ann Summers) – a thigh and wrist four-piece faux leather restraint set in off red with gold metal trim. For £40 it was reasonably priced, and I purchased it along with a matching collar and leash for £20.

My thoughts on the Ann Summers BDSM thigh to cuff restraints

Here’s what the set looks like:

I’ve purchased thigh restrains from Ali Express in China before, but they were thin and the quality wasn’t great. This Ann Summers set felt sturdier, and even though it isn’t real leather, it feels more luxurious. The width of the thigh restraints helps them stick to the skin and stay in place, whilst avoiding cutting off circulation.

I also like the fact there are multiple D-ring attachment points on the thigh restraints, meaning I can clip the cuffs to the inside or outside of the thigh depending upon what position I want to put my sub in.

The set comes with a faux leather cross with D-rings at each end. The standard use is to clip the two wrist cuffs and two thigh cuffs to each attachment point, restricting the range of motion of the person wearing them.

Or in front of the body, better for penetration and spanking, or kneeling and doggy positions.

Alternatively I can clip the wrists directly to the thigh restraints and not use the X at all. I like the position where my sub has her wrists attached to the outside of her thighs – there is something very slave-like about this position to me.

I can imagine her just standing waiting for me to give her instructions, and I would unclip the wrist cuffs should I need her to use her hands for something.

I also enjoyed bending her over my spanking bench, inserting an anal hook, and attaching the wrist cuffs directly to the eye of the anal hook for a bit of predicament bondage play whilst I spanked her ass.

The collar in the same style has a nice triangular front, different to the types of BDSM collars I regularly buy.

I can see this entire outfit being perfect for play parties. Lingerie or nothing could be worn underneath it.

Using the restraints

I’ve only done a couple of scenes with this thigh to cuff restraint set so far. Here are a couple of ways to use the set in a D/s dynamic:

  • Bend them over the bed. Fasten the wrists to the outside of the thigh cuffs and have her bend over the end of the bed, her feet remaining on the floor. This position is perfect for spanking, and fucking from behind. Have her spread her legs so you can use a magic wand on her clit, or insert butt plugs and dildos into her. If your sub is male then you might want to have him move away from the bed a little bit so you can reach around to stroke his cock.

  • Household outfit. Have them wear the wrist and thigh cuffs around the house and be naked otherwise. Don’t attach the wrists to anything, and don’t use the X. It’s just hot to see them wearing nothing but restraints.

  • All fours. Have them kneel on the floor and attach the wrists and things to the X, or directly to the thigh cuffs, but to the inside D-ring rather than the outside. The wrists should be in front of the body. This will force their head down onto the floor, raising their ass into the air for spanking or fucking.

Concluding my review of the Femme Fatale Luxury Thigh to Cuff restraint

Would I recommend this Femme Fatale Luxury Thigh to Cuff restraint? I would indeed. I think £40 is a really decent price for this BDSM restraint set given the quality, and it is very versatile to put your submissive into different positions. Hopefully that’s shown in the photos above!

Ann Summers didn’t sponsor me to write this post, and I bought the restraints and collar with my own money.

Do you think they would be ok for someone plus sized? Thank you 🙂

This is a beautiful set. What size do the thigh restraints go to?

This looks good in every position 🙂

You write so well. This is the first review I’ve read by you & I’ve sent it to my Dom. It’s so to-the-point with all important info covered without frilly fillers. The pics are demonstrative while still being tasteful rather than exploitive. You would be an excellent instructor in any topic you found interesting enough to share. And I would like to compliment both you & Moineau on your Podcast. I’m an avid listener & supportive subscriber. Love from America.
