Restraining bench

Recently, on Dan's fine blog, my mention of a bed-top, D.I.Y. restraining device prompted multiple requests for a look. As such, this morning I slid the sucker out from under the bed where it's kept and took some long overdue photos. And......here it is:


Initially the device collapses into a somewhat portable state, allowing it to be stored under a standard bed.



But all it takes is a gentle lift to position the cushioned fulcrum to whatever height is required or desired.

Another angle shows the multiple straps used to secure me into it, preventing me from being able to move, voluntarily or involuntarily.

There are also very easy to click open or click shut restraints for the ankles.

Here you see the various notches which allow for the position to be raised or lowered. The metal clasps are there to quickly secure wrist cuffs.

A rear view showing the cushioned (pool noodle covering a dowel) fulcrum and the straps for my thighs. The ankle rests and restraints are also easily seen at the base.  

I threw a pillow on it to give an idea of how it works. Imagine the pillow is me from shoulder to butt. My wrists would be secured to the clips in the lower right corner of the picture and my thighs immobilized by the straps you see below the pillow.

The entire thing is basically pine 2X4s , dowels, and smooth plywood. It is very sturdy. Its main drawback is that, while portable, it s a bit ungainly. Yes it can be set up by one person, but that person can't be a frail one. Also, as you can imagine, the victim can manage to help secure themselves with a number of the available restraints, but it does make it easier if the disciplinarian helps.

Once in my own body weight, secured to the already sturdy frame, makes escape and even movement impossible. The strap near the fulcrum alone does an amazing job to keep me still.

Admittedly this device is not needed for most spankings. But it is very good for special situations. I particularly welcome the immobilization if I'm going to be punished with the A&G "White Lightning" switch.




A pretty nasty synthetic "switch/cane".

Feel free to make one of your own......but please don't ask me for specs. The pictures show pretty clearly how simple this is and the dimensions for this one were tailored for me, and I'm 6'3". It's really just a 2X4 frame with a pivoting  plywood platform. Also, I never bothered to stain or paint mine, but it could be something worth doing at some point. But if you really want a portable, yet sturdy restraint at a pretty low cost, this one is hard to beat.

  1. Very interesting and useful. I have an idea. You should be secured to it and with a couple of women one on each side of the bed they can spank you together. I think you know what two I'm talking about. you would end up with a well spanked bottom

    1. That idea has occurred to me on a few occasions......but you'd be surprised at how hard it is to get even willing people together to play.

    2. Yes I can imagine it would be hard to get them together. What I would do is suggest it to both and let them figure out how they could do it. By then setting the date and time would make you more submissive.

    3. It's something to consider. Unfortunately right now is not a good time......but it's a definite possibility for the future.

    1. If I had a nickel for every time I heard that about something I made, I would be very well off. LOL The thing is my time is worth more to me than what others would be willing to pay to compensate. Besides.....look at your own forum! Restraints are not very popular even among a crowd that you'd think would be interested.

    2. Yeah, that's true. But, as I said in this week's post, I seem to hav driven off many of the BDSM-ers. So, my blog may not be indicative of your target market!

  3. Very intriguing though I am not sure my wife would like such a device. Does look fairly simple to build.

    1. Things like this are often a matter of preference. I think it would be even less appealing to Rosa had I not made it easy to store.

  4. Thank you. I have been looking for this for some time. When I retire next year, it is my first project.

    1. Welcome, Barrel. I retired a few years ago....early. Going early made finances more tricky, BUT, it is the best decision I ever made! Enjoy it! And post back when you finish your version of the bench.

  5. What a clever device! You really should patent it. Have you thought about going on Shark Tank? That would make even Mr. Wonderful blush!

    1. Thank you, dear. But no need to patent something so basic. It's no different than a couple of outdoor chaise lounges I made this year.....except they raise up incrementally at the back to raise one's head instead of popping up in the middle to elevate a butt.

      I'm not sure what Shark Tank is other than the place at the local aquarium that gets the most visitors? LOL, Actually, I have heard it mentioned in passing and assume it's a TV show? I have no idea what it's about though. Hopefully going on it would be a good thing? ;-)

  6. Thanks for taking and posting pictures. I think the design is great, since it is adjustable, sturdy, and easily foldable. Well done!
