Derived from a term for slavery, Bondage has come to mean sexual slavery, particularly dealing with the simple practice of restraining one's parter to beds, posts, from ceilings, etc. Usually entails either rope (asian forms) or leather, chains, and other equipment specially designed for the purpose (western.)
Bondage considered a fetish, as enthusiasts generally prefer the thought or presence of a fully-clothed restrained partner to a fully nude and unrestrained partner.
Bondage is not to be confused with the more specific practices of B&D
, the practice of restraining and then dominating, or humiliating a partner, or S&M
, the practice of hurting one's partner in order to achieve sexual climax. Bondage enthusiasts generally prefer the more docile forms.
