Definition - What does Strappado Bondage mean?

Strappado bondage is type of bondage in which a person has their arms bound behind their backs and are then lifted upwards until the person is forced to bend forward to maintain the position. This position can enhance the pleasure or pain inherent in BDSM play as the position can be manipulated to leave the bound individual more vulnerable.

Kinkly explains Strappado Bondage

Strappado bondage can be altered to achieve different styles of this particular type of BDSM play. The different styles include:

  • Legs apart, or spread wide

  • Legs together

  • Head pulled forward by use of rope

  • Head bondage to pull head back

  • Elbows bound together

Due to the stress of this position on the body, it is recommended that this position not be held for extended periods of time.
