Budget BDSM + Playing in Lockdown!

We are living in a crazy world where the last few years have been full of lockdowns, weather events and uncertainties. Some people might have faced reduced or no hours at work, some people might be immuno-compromised and unable to leave their home or go to supermarkets and hardware stores, others might feel anxious about being around a lot of people! Whatever your situation, that doesn't mean you can't find new toys to play with. Some of our favourite toys have come from making things at home or finding things around the house that can be also used for play!

This list comes from evilmonk.org and might give you some ideas! It is by no means an exhaustive list ... there are always things we can convert to a toy whether it is for impact or sensual play or anything else!
