Definition - What does A-Frame mean?
An A-frame is furniture used in BDSM scenes. It works similarly to a whipping post and a St. Andrew's cross. It is made up of a triangular frame that's around 7 feet tall. It is somewhat concave, such that there is space within the triangle. This is where a person is positioned for bondage and domination. Usually, a submissive's wrists are immobilized through rope or chain bondage. Their ankles may also be secured to increase vulnerability and humiliation.
Kinkly explains A-Frame
Before using an A-frame, it important to guarantee that the base is secure and won't topple over. Some submissives like to struggle. An unsecured A-frame can ruin the moment or cause someone to get injured. Likewise, an A-frame can increase the intensity of the BDSM scene. It may get too hot to handle. Agree on a safe word, and release the submissive when the word is used.
