During Mayumi's first bondage party,
she experienced the unforgiving grip of metal shackles
and a heavy steel cage

was Mayumi's first bondage party, and I was surprised
that she even showed up at all. Most women would
feel unsafe attending their first bondage party alone, however
I'm an honest and
and considerate person
- and I assume that Mayumi just trusted me and my alluring invitation.
The party was a lot
of fun; forty or so people showed up for an evening
of bondage play, kinky conversation, and a great
potluck dinner. I never asked Mayumi if she enjoyed
herself, but I assume she had a good time because
there was so much to see and do.
As the party progressed, Mayumi became more comfortable with everyone, and soon discovered that kinky people are just like everyone else. They are warm and friendly. There was bondage happening in every room of my house, including the kitchen! Between all the bondage gear I had and the gear that other people brought, there were plenty of opportunities to give bondage a try.
One thing led to
another, and later that evening I found Mayumi
and some of my guests in the play room, where a heavy
steel cage was just waiting to be occupied.
discovers that being shackled and locked inside
of a steel cage isn't that bad after all. As a
matter of fact, it's quite comforting - under the
cage is one of my favorite toys because it's
so damn heavy and intimidating. It's made
of solid steel, weighs over 200 pounds, and
has an extremely heavy door a giant sliding
bolt lock. If you ever became stuck in this
cage because someone lost the key, you would
be in BIG TROUBLE.
The cage has a soft padded floor which allows
someone to be confined for hours, or even
overnight - but I don't know anyone who would
want to to do that.
I asked Mayumi if she would like to experience
being locked inside the cage, and without
hesitation she climbed inside, leather pants,
boots, sweater and all. I suppose, as the old saying goes, nothing ventured nothing
gained? I only wish I had been invited
to a bondage party like this when I was first
exploring the BDSM scene.
proceeded to gather my locks and chains, metal
shackles, leather straps, and double-lined
leather helpless mitts. I enjoy using a lot
of extra gear to secure someone once they're
inside the cage. I already knew exactly what
position I was going to restrain Mayumi in,
because I had secured myself in this very position
in the cage many times before. I often feel
jealous because I would rather be restrained
in the cage myself than give someone else the
First, I secured
Mayumi's lower torso to the cage by threading two
thick leather straps between her legs and another
strap around her waist. These straps ran through
the bars of the cage, pulling her torso up against
the back end of the cage. As a matter of course,
I always use tight leather straps between
women's legs when I'm tying them up.
then shackled her booted ankles to each side
of the cage, and with bigger shackles I was
able to suspend her thighs from the overhead
bars. This creates a wonderfully helpless
and vulnerable feeling.
legs were secure, I attached a metal collar
around her neck, and secured it with three
chains - to each side of the cage, and to
the rear of the cage. This prevents Mayumi
from moving her head to far in any direction,
as she might try to dislodge her blindfold
by rubbing it against something in the cage.
I slid the double-lined leather helpless
mitts over her hands, and locked the metal
shackles around her wrists preventing her
from removing the mitts.
These thick leather mitts keep her fingers
out of mischief, and provide her with a more
intense feeling of helpless. Personally,
I love the feeling of the helpless mitts
when I wear them myself, don't they look
intense and scary?
last step was to suspend her wrist shackles
from the overhead bars of the cage. This
keeps her hands and arms up and away from
her body, so she can't protect herself from
I have to pause here for
a moment and point out that metal bondage
gear is just so darn delightful to play with.
Unlike leather, metal has a very unforgiving
and unyielding feel. It's definite, and a
bit harsh to the unacquainted. Metal bondage
gear also makes a wonderful sound when it
clicks and clanks - reminding you of your

bondage, she started to twist and squirm.
I think the tight leather straps between
her legs were having the desired effect.

of their helplessness, and increases the
enjoyment as well!
the room became very quite. We were each
in our own private world of thoughts, imaging
what it would feel like to be in Mayumi's
position. We were also imagining what we
would do to Mayumi if nobody else were in
the room. It would be so easy to reach in
between the bars of the cage and fondle her
breasts and thighs. (Mayumi told me later
that she was having these same thoughts)
All too often people shy away from having
extraordinary experiences like this because
of fear, but in this case Mayumi wanted our
attention as much as we would liked to have
given it to her, which is why she volunteered
to try the cage.
of hair fell over Mayumi's soft leather blindfold.
Her lips told us of her thoughts. We could
hear her breaths, and she could hear ours.
She was indeed under our control, and we
each felt a sense of responsibility and caring
for this beautiful and helpless caged woman.
Our sexual desires tinted our vision, we
stood spellbound, unable to take our eyes
off this unusual site. There might not be
another time in our lives that we would see
such an attractive and sexually mature woman
be so vulnerable, shackled and locked inside
of a steel cage like an animal. This seemed
like a strange dream.
"How are you doing?" I
whispered. Mayumi didn't answer. She was
far, far away, experiencing her own emotions
- emotions of a newborn child, and at the
same time, emotional bliss. I have seen this
look many times before, and I've experience
it myself. Mayumi felt safe, wanted, cared
for, and no longer responsible for herself.
We are touching the essence of her childhood
experience would normally be frightening,
but Mayumi was among friends. You see, people
don't usually experience this odd mixture
of feelings: loss of control, sexual vulnerability,
and at the same time - warmth and safety.
While Mayumi was restrained
in this intense bondage her mind could only
relax, because there was absolutely no way
to escape. The bondage is simply overwhelming,
and the feel of the unforgiving metal shackles
is a constant reminder of no escape. At the
same time Mayumi is comfortable and safe,
and in no danger. This allows her to slip
into a wonderful emotional space of calmness
and bliss - experiences of a baby or young
seemed content in her temporary home. Were we all
dreaming? Was I dreaming? I wanted to leave her
in the cage and pretend she was mine. I wanted
to own her and use her as I pleased - I wanted
to keep her as my mate, and as my pet. But most
of all, I was hoping that she was enjoying her
bondage experience as much as we were!
