The Nest Relationship Olympics: Challenge #15

Try bondage in the bedroom (or wherever).

Bronze:

Blindfold him -- or have him blindfold you. “That’s perfect for first-timers,” says relationship expert Patty Brisben. The dominant partner is allowed to have his/her way with the submissive partner until he/she allows the blindfold to be removed. No peeking until then!

Silver:

Have him tie you up, or vice versa. Hit up your local sex-toy shop for bondage tape (“the tape only sticks to itself, not hair or skin,” says Brisben) or a pair of furry handcuffs. Whoever is tied up must submit until the dominant partner says the game is over. No “calling uncle.”

Gold:

In addition to the aforementioned restraints, the dominant partner uses ticklers and whips to tease/please the submissive partner. “Use the feathers for a tempting tickle and the whip when you’re feeling feisty,” says Brisben. No calling uncle!

Come back and tell us: What medal did you earn on challenge #15?
