A big turn-on for subs is not knowing what is going to happen to them. A big turn on for me is using my gear and restraints in non-traditional ways. It also helps keep the sub guessing as to what will happen next. The less information a sub knows about what will happen to him in a scene, the more submissive he will be. Take advantage of this.
Pick out your favorite gear or restraints and think of ways to combine their use in a scene or position. For example, if you are into athletic socks think about using a pair to restrain your sub’s arms or anchor them to something like a cage. There really are a ton off opportunities to take the things you enjoy and use them in new ways. This will keep your sub guessing as to what will happen next.
In a couple weeks I will have a post that will explain a new position I have been thinking through and how I executed it.
