BDSM on a Budget

Having an extensive collection of BDSM paraphernalia is all very well. But, what if you do not have the convenience of a well-stocked fetish boutique where you live? And, if you do have one nearby, what if you simply do not have the courage to set foot inside it? Online shopping can often lead to disappointment and frustration because of misleading product photos and inaccurate descriptions. 

 

There is a more obvious solution for shy, discreet and penny-pinching fetishists. There really is no need to worry at all because you can find almost everything you are looking for at your local shopping centre. You will not have to compromise on quality either. In some cases, it is even better. 

 

Pharmacy

 

If you want an effective blindfold, then sleep masks that can be found at your local chemist come highly recommended. Forget the lacy ones that you tend to find in an erotic boutique. They might look good but you can never be sure that your sub is peeping. 

 

This is also the preferred port of call for foot fetishists. Emery boards, nail polish, foot care kits and moisturising lotions of all kinds are readily available. 

 

For tickling enthusiasts, I would suggest checking out the selection of makeup brushes, hairbrushes and combs. They are far more effective for the purposes of tickling than the flimsy feathers that can be found in sex shops. 

 

Pet Shop  

 

This is an excellent establishment to source generic BDSM accessories such as collars and leashes. Some of the designs – with metal studs – have a distinct BDSM flavour about them. It does make you wonder if their producers had the requirements of kinksters in mind. Dog bowls are a particular favourite of mine. You can write your sub’s name on it and then cross it out after. You can use it to serve up some cold leftovers for them.

 

If you are genuinely into puppy play, you might want to consider sourcing a kennel. Don’t forget to keep a supply of doggie biscuits to reward good behaviour. 

 

Hardware Store 

 

This is always a great place to source sturdy rope if you are into bondage. Clothes pegs can stand in for nipple clamps. Duct tape is always useful for making gags or for the purposes of general bodily restraint.

 

Sports Shop 

 

Head straight to the equestrian section. There you will find an amazing display of riding crops to choose from. Really good ones come in at a fraction of the price of those found in sex shops. They are perfect for spanking. If, however, you prefer pony play then you will be truly spoilt for choice. You will be faced with leather saddles, riding boots, helmets and jodhpurs of all kinds. 

 

Other areas of interest may include the scuba section for rubber kinksters and the dance/ballet department for legwarmers, a fantasy accessory for many foot fetishists. 

 

The advantage of buying your kinky supplies from a variety of vanilla suppliers is that you can hide your habits in plain sight. You can spread your purchases out among several different shops. Your erotic tastes will remain as private as you wish them to be and you can also camouflage your perverse purchases by arranging your vanilla shopping in and around them. 

 

Not only will you save your money, but you will also save yourself a good deal of embarrassment.
