What is Hogcuff?
Hogcuff is a variant of Hogtie bondage that restricts the movement of hands and legs using handcuffs and leg irons. Traditional Hogtie bondage uses a rope to tie the limbs together. It is originally intended for pigs but later on used by some law enforcers to subdue criminals.
The used of Hogcuff Bondage is often observed in consensual BDSM plays. The feeling of helplessness produced from being immobilized can give sexual arousal to the submissive, while the feeling of control and power over someone can give an erotic kick to the dominant partner. This is the most common type of bondage used to exert authority and show dominance. It is typically applied in Discipline, Sadomasochism and Master/slave plays.
Hogcuffs can cause painful muscle strain and tension. This pain can trigger a release of endorphin, a kind of a feel-good chemical naturally produced by the body. The awkward position of the submissive in Hogcuff may also induce postural asphyxia, which can give people with Autoerotic Asphyxia the stimulation they need to reach orgasm.
Dos, Don’ts & Tips
- In Hogcuff bondage, the submissive’s hand is bound by handcuffs while the ankles are kept together by leg irons.
- The handcuffs and leg irons are then tied together using a second set of handcuffs.
- There are times when the leg irons are directly tied around the handcuffs in the wrist.
- This variant of hogcuff can give a more painful or pleasurable experience, but also has a greater risk of postural asphyxia.
- Using handcuffs instead of leg irons is not advised because it carries a higher risk of over-tightening which can cause tendon damage.
- Leather bondage handcuffs are the more preferable choice in doing the Hogcuff bondage.
- Metallic handcuffs that are not designed to be used in BDSM can damage the nerve and tendons if applied too tightly.
- Keys should always be on-hand so that the submissive can be immediately released of bondage in case of emergency.
- A safety word or action should also be agreed-upon before engaging in the activity.
