Turns out those collars, cuffs, whips and cages are hard to come by.
“We always found it annoying that the items we were looking for were either unavailable in terms of quality or not available altogether,” say the founders of SM-factory, an online store dedicated to providing high-end, handcrafted adult playthings.
Lusting after some orbital cuffs that not only serve as the perfect bondage tool, but double as an eye-catching sculpture? Or how about a stainless steel “neck corset” complete with lock and key? You can find them all, and more, at SM-factory.
How good is SM-factory? It recently took home the 2008 Best Bondage Toy Store award for its designer collection of weights, whips and gags. (Needless to say, it beat out some stiff competition.)
The site also features sundry items like wall plates — known in industry parlance as the “slave parking space.” SM-factory’s crown jewels are its “furniture pieces.” Nope, these aren’t sofas, tables and sideboards. They’re steel cages with names like “The Chameleon” and “Small and Nice But Bitchy.”
Equipped with 20 double-hinges, The Chameleon quickly converts into an unobtrusive decorative partition, so you needn’t worry when your mother-in-law arrives unannounced. (Unless, of course, she’s into that type of thing.)
The best part about SM-factory is that everything it sells is lovingly manufactured on site.
The worst part: it doesn’t offer punishment cages. SM-factory files down the metal and smooths out the edges on all its cages, sadly depriving the hard-core S&M aficionado of that truly cutting-edge experience.
Oh well, guess we’ll have to keep scouring the internet for that one.
