The Home BDSM Dungeon

The practices of BDSM are highly diverse in their nature, and offer lovers the chance to express themselves in new and exciting sexual ways.

BDSM is almost as much an art form as it is a practical means for kinky sex, and has taken so many different forms since its obscure and loosely defined origins.

There have been numerous cultures in the history of human evolution who have thoroughly embraced BDSM practices, both erotic and non-erotic, and each respective cultural instance of BDSM has had its own distinct features and methodology.

 

Creating Your Own BDSM Home Dungeon

On the note of medieval BDSM origins, it is important to realize that this medieval era of BDSM’s evolution actually played a prominent role in shaping what we know as modern or contemporary BDSM.

This is true especially in the realm of BDSM home dungeons, which essentially function as areas of a living space wherein certain BDSM activities can be conducted in the comfort and privacy of one’s own home.

These home BDSM play spaces can be great places for experimenting with new techniques and practices, since they offer participants a controlled zone that is free from external judgments and also from the kinds of unintended consequences that can arise when engaging in BDSM activities with people you haven’t known for very long.

There are many different tips and suggestions to consider when preparing to build your own BDSM home dungeon, and some of these helpful bits of information will now be introduced.

One of the first things to determine when beginning to set up your own BDSM home play area, is the exact room or location in which you plan to have your BDSM home dungeon.

It really is completely up to the individual to determine which area of a home would be most preferable for a BDSM home dungeon, and in actuality, any area or room inside a home would probably suffice.

It is advisable that BDSM home dungeons be located somewhere inside of a home where outsiders will not be able to see in, since certain BDSM activities can appear very dangerous or sinister to individuals who either have no real knowledge of BDSM, or to young impressionable children who may accidentally witness BDSM activities and be upset by them.

Often times, BDSM enthusiasts who are seeking to construct a private dungeon in their home will opt to use a garage or basement area for their activities. Converting a garage or basement area into an attractive and functionally impressive BDSM dungeon is actually much easier than it may seem, and usually it can be done for considerably less money than many BDSM enthusiasts would expect.


After you’ve selected the space in which you will build your home BDSM dungeon, the next step in the process is basically to determine the color scheme and over themes of your BDSM play area.

Often times, BDSM enthusiasts will opt to use a lot of blacks and reds when designing their home dungeon themes, since these colors convey the kind of dark energy that is often being expressed in different BDSM activities and practices.

While these do tend to be the most often used colors in BDSM home dungeons, they are only a basic suggestion and a relative starting point for brainstorming processes.

Some BDSM home play area designers will use brighter colors for their home dungeon, depending on the feeling, mood, or theme that they would like to cultivate in their very own BDSM dungeon area.

Blues, greens, and purples can be much softer color schemes for your BDSM home dungeon area, which can be perfect for those BDSM enthusiasts who aren’t quite as aggressive about their BDSM practices and activities.

Once the colors and overall themes of your BDSM home dungeon have been selected and put into place, the next thing to do is to consider which types of BDSM furniture and appliances you might want to have in your BDSM play area.

Every BDSM enthusiast tends to have different preferences pertaining to the different types of activities available out there, and therefore certain BDSM furniture and utility items are going to be more relevant for different people and interests.

While binding via rope knots and hitches, spanking and hitting, and general submission activities are some of the more standard practices, there are certainly those BDSM activities that are less conventional in their nature.

For this reason, certain BDSM dungeon builders may consider putting some kinds of BDSM equipment in their home dungeon that is rarely used or much different from the “standard” BDSM activity equipment.

If you are someone who is more on the conventional end of BDSM activity, then all of the bonding racks, St. Andrew’s crosses, restraint benches, and other frequently used BDSM equipment is probably some of what you will be working with when equipping your BDSM home dungeon.

Many BDSM enthusiasts who decide to build their own home dungeon will simply buy the equipment they need from reputable sellers, but another option to consider if you are on a tight budget is the option of using everyday items in your BDSM activities.

This can actually impart a sense of realism to some BDSM participant’s experiences, since using everyday items can serve to heighten the realistic nature of any BDSM activity.

For example, some BDSM home dungeon builders will decide to use objects like pet kennels or cages in their home dungeon area, since these objects can be cheap ways of obtaining creative and fun restraint mediums.

Another great idea for home BDSM dungeon builders who are on a budget might be the use of an old futon rack, or any other sturdy wood frame, for the purpose of using it as a restraint rack.

Using a wood frame like this, a BDSM home dungeon builder can attach it to the wall, creating a highly functional restraint rack which is capable of accommodating multiple BDSM participants all at one time.

Once the equipment and aesthetic themes for a home BDSM dungeon have been established and put into place, it is time to think about what kind of BDSM toys, if any, you would like to store and feature in your personal BDSM dungeon.

Having fixed hangers on the walls of your BDSM home dungeon can serve as a convenient and highly practical way of storing all of the floggers, whips, gags, masks, and other types of basic BDSM toys that many enthusiasts use on a regular basis.

Having hangers for all of these various toys and devices can be handy not only for storage purposes, but they will also serve a very practical and health related purpose as well.

For example, whips and other toys made out of leather will tend to dry out much faster if they are left in the open air after use.

A final element to consider when setting up your home BDSM dungeon is to make certain that the area in question is climate controlled. This is for comfort purposes, but also for safety purposes as well, since extreme heat or cold can pose a real danger to participants engaging in BDSM activities.

After all of these tips and suggestions have been completed, you can now enjoy BDSM activities in the privacy and comfort of your own home.
