Self-bondage ideas for sleeping bag/mummification enthusiasts
From conversing with several tugs members who also share the sleeping bag fetish, I realised that only few have found ways to indulge in self-bondage while using sleeping bags.
In this post, I am just going to talk about how I go about tying myself up in sleeping bags and how to go about it in a safe, yet exciting way. Before I begin, I just want to urge readers to use common sense and caution. If you can have a partner help you out, the experience can be even better, but for those who want to try out this bondage method alone, please go about it sensibly. For this exercise, it would be best to avoid mummy style sleeping bags.
- An inflatable mattress
- Ratchet straps or rope
- 3 or 4 of my thickest rectangular sleeping bags
To give you an idea of what I mean when I say "thick", most rectangular sleeping bags on the market weigh approximately 3lbs and have a temperature rating of 7c. The sleeping bags I use, each weight between 5lbs and 7lbs with temperature ratings ranging from 0c to -10c.
Part of staying safe when you play with sleeping bags or cold weather gear, is staying hydrated and knowing when to quit. Unless your room temperature drops to -10c...staying strapped up in multiple sleepings bags for more than 30-45 minutes, is NOT a good idea.
I like to preprare myself by taking a cold shower before I start. This way my body temperature is a few degrees colder than usual. I should also mention that wearing light clothes, turning the AC on (if in summer) and having a glass of icy water at the ready, is very important.
I am sorry for ranting about safety precautions, but it's just so important for anyone doing self-bondage, to do so safely.
Okay, now to the good stuff.
I wear a light t-shirt and pair of running shorts.
I unfold the mattress on the bed/or on the floor and start zipping up my sleeping bags inside each other.
I also like to position a mirror, so that when I am fully cocooned, I can see myself...it adds something special to the experience
When I have all my sleeping bags zipped up into each other, I lift them up onto the inflatable mattress (which is not inflated yet). The head of the sleeping bags need to be near the mattress' air intake valve.
The next thing I do is get in the thick layer of sleeping bags and start tightening ratchet straps around the bags and mattress, at my feet, my upper knees, my hips and my chest. Don't tie/strap yourself tightly! It's not the rope/straps that will keep you bound, but the mattress itself!
I connect the manual air pump to the intake valve above my head and start pumping.
As air begins to flow into the mattress, everything seems to get tighter and tighter (see photos below for explanation).
Before things get too restrictive, I get ready for the final details.
I have an elastic nylon belt that I secure around the matress and around the sleeping bags, at my neck level.
The stretchy belt, keeps the puffy sleeping bags tight around my neck, nice and secure...but also safe, because I am able to stretch the belt and can get out (with some effort) if I need to. Before slipping my arms and hands inside my sleeping bag prison, I disconnect the air pump from the hose that connects it to the mattress and put the hose in my mouth.
If I blow air into the hose, the mattress get's bigger and my cocoon becomes more restrictive...so much so that you can feel everything getting tighter and tighter with each lung full of air you blow into the hose. Suffice it to say...the feeling is VERY arousing.
Before I start blowing air into the hose, I slide down, so that my feet are at the bottom of the sleeping bag prison, I zip the bags up completely and bunch up the neck of my sleeping bags so that my mouth and head are engulfed in the thick loft.
Only my nose and eyes can be seen, the rest of my body remains completely engulfed in a thick layer of insulating loft and silky nylon. Once I feel completely cocooned, I tuck my arms down inside the sleeping bag, so that my hands are on both sides of my hips and I start blowing air into the hose that I keep in my mouth.
Slowly, but surely, my sleeping bag prison get stricter and stricter. My whole body is tightly trapped inside thick sleeping bags and strapped down to an inflatable mattress. Everything get's tighter and tighter.
If the belt keeping my neck pinned to the mattress wasn't elastic, this method would be escape proof! For this you will need a partner...unfortunately for the captive, the captor would get full and complete control of your nose and mouth while you are trapped...hehe
Sorry, couldn't help but tease you.
Back to self-bondage...
After 45 minutes or so, the heat becomes unbearable and I know my time is up. With some effort, I slip my sweaty arms up and use them to stretch the elastic belt around my neck. I just need to slip one arm out of the sleeping bag prison and twist the air intake valve open...immediately, air flows out of the mattress under my weight and the restrictive prison loosens around me.
I hope you have found this idea interesting! If you have your own way of going about it, please tell us!
If you try this out, please post about it here
Have fun and play safe!
