badgerthorazine @ 12:12 am: Trying to figure out some alternatives...
Bondage is fun and all that, but I've got wonky and fragile ankles. I'd love to have them properly fastened when I'm in the mood to be a bottom, but without issues of spraining randomly, etc. Any suggestions as to what I could use? As for topping, I'm starting to think that some of my arm pain might not be normal, but have no idea where to go with it. I *know* my leg pain comes partially from lipedema and mostly from multiple arthritic joints.

Also, with regards to my lipedema, I'm trying to find out things that will be kinky without my legs being damaged or bruising inner structures that I need to keep intact. (there's also an issue of the lipedema causing my legs to be extremely large, so sometimes ideas that work for other folks don't generally work for me. :P )

I'm 41, bi, poly, pagan, switch, and a hug-a-holic. :)

What are you using for restraints? i have fibromyalgia and diabetes. i bought a set of wrist/ankle cuffs that are wide and lined with soft material that has really helped. The cuffs have velcro and straps like a belt. When first putting them on, they can be adjusted for comfort with the velcro which is wonderful and makes them very comfortable. When i first got into BDSM, we used rope which hurt like crazy and dug into my skin, leaving red marks that didn't go away for a good while. Cuffs come in a whole range of sizes, too. They are well worth the investment! There are also books out for safe play with disabilities but at this moment, i can not remember any of their titles. Maybe google can help with a search.

Generally I have wrist and ankle cuffs from Leather by Danny, which are wide, lined in fuzziness, and all that goodness. The problem is that I fear that my ankles have gotten larger, from all the sprains since then, and I can't afford a new, properly sized, set. The quality is excellent, but I'm on SSI, and don't have much to spend on kink. :P
