76% of Britons have taken part in bondage play in the last 6 months.

Naughty Brits are turning to kinky bondage to beat the recession blues, a new survey reveals today. UK couples are shrugging off the shackles of conventional love-making and spending more time in the bedroom with handcuffs, blindfolds and even tie-up bondage gear.

The survey of 2,000 men and women by online sex toy retailer LoveHoney.co.uk found that 76% of Britons have taken part in bondage play in the last 6 months. 58% of couples use it as a special way to spice up their love lives, while 16% use kinky accessories every time they make love.

68% have used restraints such as handcuffs and ties, while 18% have used a blindfolds to enhance their lovemaking. 7% have even used unspecified household objects in the bedroom!

75% of people who had never tried tying up their partner said they were keen to give it a go.

The new Tracey Cox Supersex Beginner's Bondage Kit is the perfect way for naughty couples to get started in tie-up sex games. It includes a silky soft blindfold, four fake-fur lined ankle and wrist ties, and an exclusive guide to bondage play written by best-selling sex author Tracey.

“While I certainly wouldn't suggest going to an S&M party for most couples, playing 'tie-up' privately is a definitely a great way to add zest to anyone's sex life,” says Tracey. “When one of you is tied-up, you’ll tend to try new things in bed, straying away from your predictable love-making path – it’s this unpredictability that is the biggest turn on!”

Tracey’s Five Top Tips For Safe Kinky Sex

• Don’t be scared to have a laugh. It’s normal to start giggling nervously when trying anything new. Just keep going and it should pass.

• Set boundaries before you start. Is there anything that’s off limits?

• Have a ‘safe word’ – a word both of you know means ‘Stop right now’ and always stop when it’s uttered, without demanding an explanation first.

• Never – no matter how funny you think it would be – leave someone tied up alone in a room. This isn’t the time to pop out for a carton of milk.

• If you don’t entirely trust your partner, don’t go there. If trust is missing, it just isn’t going to work.
