Vet wrap is a stretchy, flexible, and self-adherent medical fabric or bandage typically used by veterinarians in the treatment of animals. Vet wrap is also used by the BDSM community and by couples looking to experiment with sexual bondage activities, including light bondage and mummification.
While vet wrap sticks to itself, it does not stick to hair. Its porous texture allows the skin to breathe and does not cause overheating. Since it is hypoallergenic, it can also be used safely by people with sensitive skin.
Vet wrap is available at a number of drug stores and online retailers.
More About Vet Wrap
Many experts suggest couples use vet wrap when experimenting with bondage for the first time, as it does not require any special skills to use. Since vet wrap adheres to itself, you do not need to tie knots to use it. It can be applied quickly and removed in seconds. Vet wrap is also very inexpensive.
During light bondage, vet wrap may be used to fasten a person’s wrists or ankles. It can also be used to tie a person to a chair or bedposts or to create a blindfold or hood.
Vet wrap is especially useful for the specialized type of bondage called mummification. During mummification, the whole body is wrapped up in vet wrap to immobilize the submissive and deprive them of their sense of sight and sometimes touch or hearing. For safety, a hole should be left open for the submissive's mouth or nose, or they may breathe through a breathing tube. Genitals may also be left exposed for sexual pleasure.
