Definition - What does Sensation Bondage mean?

Sensation bondage is a form of restraint which focuses on making the restrained person conscious of their own body and the sensations it is experiencing. These sensations are typically pleasant, but may also include painful sensations if the dominant and submissive person agree to it.

Sensation bondage is sometimes called stimulation bondage.

Kinkly explains Sensation Bondage

A variety of different materials can be used in sensation bondage to create a sensory experience for the submissive person. These materials can include items used to restrain the submissive, such as soft silks and ropes made from various substances, and items used to create sensations on the skin once the submissive person is restrained, such as paddles, floggers, and nipple clamps. The items a dominant person can use during sensation bondage are only limited by their imagination as well as the sub's consent.

Sensation bondage typically focuses on creating pleasurable sensations. This makes it an ideal entry-point for beginners interested in bondage. The submissive person typically experiences pleasure as they move against the restraints, due to the way they are tied as well as when they are stimulated by their dominant partner. While pleasure is often the focus, painful sensations can be a part of sensation bondage if both parties consent.

As with all bondage experiences, it’s crucial for the dominant to carefully monitor their submissive, especially when playing with pain. The restraints should never compromise circulation or breathing. A safe word and motion should be established before play so the submissive can halt the sensation bondage session for any reason.
