Leg irons are fetters or leg cuffs that
are designed to restrict a person’s leg movements, as well as make them feel vulnerable. They are usually made
of steel or metal alloy, with chains that bind the ankles closer
together. Some versions of leg irons include chains and belts that
are designed to bind both the ankles and wrists.
More About Leg Irons
In BDSM sex play, leg irons are used to
impose dominance. The submissive partner is incapacitated by
limited movement. A dom can choose to intensify the sub’s
vulnerability through verbal commands, shaming, whips, and other
strategies. The key, of course, is to act within agreed boundaries.
In fulfilling a dom-sub scene, respect should be involved.
Personal esteem and safety remain at the core to the act.
