More About Irish 8 Handcuffs
Irish 8 handcuffs differ from other handcuff styles because they are fashioned from a single piece of metal. This unique design feature helps them hold the wrists more rigidly and securely than other types of handcuffs, including normal chain handcuffs and LIPS hinged handcuffs. This enhances their appeal for both the dominant and submissive partner.
Irish 8 handcuffs have just one locking position, and can only be unlocked using the keys provided. They can be used in any type of activity where the submissive person should be restrained, including feather play, spanking, punishment, and humiliation play.
These types of handcuffs have a vintage appeal which makes them popular with many BDSM enthusiasts.
