So we got a package through from http://www.paloqueth.com/ in fact two packages to review.
The packaging is awesome, it looks luxurious and expensive, within the box is a mesh draw string bag which gives a nice feel to the whole unboxing experience.
Package 1: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00IOIU1ZY
Okay it has to be said that this is very much an entry-level bedroom bondage kit – but its fun, and it manages to avoid feeling tacky while still being a really good price. The blindfold works fully cutting out vision, the fur’esq lining isn’t irritating which many are.
As a sadist it won’t come as a surprise that I looked at the feather tickler with a sense of dismay…however I soon found a way to make it hurt.
There is a “air hole” ball gag in the kit. Now I have a big a problem with these. Saliva and bacteria get into the ball through the holes and there is no way of properly cleaning them out – so for me this item is a bit of a no go and was consined straight to the bin.
Rope: Black cotton braided hollow core rope. Look I am a huge fan of Jute and serious shibari rope, but when I started out doing rope I used rope just like this. It doesn’t give the gorgeous bite marks that Jute or Hemp does, but it has its advantages to. Its soft – and its washable! Jute and Hemp are a pain to wash, and that can be a real issue if you want to be doing crotch ties or getting messy in the bedroom – this room is perfect for bedroom bondage. Would I use it for suspension? Hell no! Will I have fun with it? Yup!
Cuffs ad hog tie link: These are small – if you are a skinny mini that’s fine, but if you have some flesh on your ankles you are going to struggle to get these around them. That said they have a nice feel to them. I am not about to abandon using rope, but cuffs are versatile and let you put someone in a variety of positions easily and move between positions easily. The chains are not going to take you pulling on them massively – but they are not designed for heavy resistant play they are designed for “loving BDSM”, and they tick the boxes here.
Collar: the collar is a high neck collar that limits the movability of your neck and ensures upright posture. I am a bit of a fan of high neck collars, although for comfort you really need them a bit more shaped than this one. I tried the collar on two different people – adjustment wise on one person it was fine – on another it was way to big.
Whip: Okay generally speaking I am not a fan of floggers they often are pretty long making them fairly unusable in a confined space – however this one is actually good fun, its short, light weight and packs a sting.
Overall this kit is great value for money, it is not perfect – but if you are looking for a bedroom bondage starter kit then I think it’s a good deal.
Package 2: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B01LX1FVB1
Okay… we have issues here folks because when paloqueth said they would send me this stuff in exchange for an honest review I said I would give just that…and I hate this. It smells like a new car..you know that really distinctive smell? That’s fine if you have a big thing for new cars but for me it doesn’t bring to mind sexy times. Because of the sizing you end up with the Velcro straps against the skin which doesn’t feel good. Sorry a no from me on this on.
I always have a sense that there is a bit of a con going on when people review things, that companies are only happy with reviews if you say everyhing is perfect. Having posted this review the people at paloqueth got in touch and said sorry I didnt like package 2, and thanks for an honest review. Would I buy from this company? Absolouly – awesome pricing, great packaging – and good attitude.
