For more conventional BDSM enthusiasts, the use of wrist cuffs, ankle cuffs, and thigh cuffs can be used. However, for those ardent BDSM partners, some enjoy full-body vacuum beds or suspension rigs. Bondage may also include specially designed furniture to help restrain a partner and keep them immobile.
