Definition - What does Collar and Lead mean?

Collars and leads are among the most popular accessories designed for bondage play and BDSM. Designed for both men and women, the collar is normally worn around the neck to indicate their status as a submissive or slave. A lead can be slipped into the collar for the Dominant to lead their submissive around the house or even in public places. Collars and leads come in a variety of fabrics including satin, leather, vinyl, PU, and polyester.

Kinkly explains Collar and Lead

People involved in a more serious BDSM relationship may also have formal collaring ceremonies where the Dominant officially places a collar and lead around the submissive’s neck. Most BDSM collars come with a metal D-ring to accommodate the leash. However, some models also include a built-in leash that is directly attached to the collar.

For added discretion, some submissives also choose to wear a piece of jewelry like a choker necklace instead of a regular collar. Symbolically, the leash represents security and protection for submissives as they surrender complete control of their bodies to their Doms.
