Rubber Spiked Princess Bondage Collar Review 8/10

Black collar with D-ring and rounded spikes.  

I want to start this review as honestly as possible, I already have a favorite collar. It’s old and its worn but it’s mine. The leather has softened with age and molded to me so it now fits the shape of my neck like a glove (or a scarf but snugger and better fitting). Its a collar I’ve fallen asleep in more times than I can count and it holds a thousand precious memories of Chris taking charge – looping his finger through the d-ring to pull my face up to his or down toward his eager cock.

What I’m trying to say is, I’ve always been content with that collar. Unlike with sex toys, I’ve never felt the need to have a collar ‘collection’. I’ve had eyes for only my collar since the day I bought it but when I saw this spiky beauty, things changed. Perhaps there’s room in the bondage drawer for one more collar afterall, my head whispered, and my heart, nodding in agreement, made space for another collar too.

So why did this particular collar manage to turn my head? Well, it’s spiky and shiny, black and bad-ass! It’s a collar I could wear to embody my puppy-play persona, protective, snappy and loyal. And it would still work equally as well as a collar fit for my dom-ly outfits – creating a pulse quickening goth-bitch style. I would even wear this out (if I was feeling super confident) as an edgy accessory to my leather jacket and stomping boots.

But enough with the superficial stuff, how does it work? Can I be yanked across the room by this collar without it snapping in half or tearing off the D-ring? Can I fall asleep in it readily because it’s so comfortable I forget its there?

Lets start with the basics. The studs and spikes are very securely (and neatly) riveted onto the rubber collar (yes you heard me, its not leather – VEGANS REJOICE!). The buckle is strong, sturdy and doesn’t look cheap or tacky. The same can be said for the D-ring at the front too – no amount of tugging or jerking will be ripping it off!

This collar has a fair amount of adjust-ability, with six different holes to buckle into. I have a small neck and wear the collar on the second tightest setting (it fits on the first setting better but I have a pathological fear of things being remotely tight around my neck). The collar will fit up to a 15″ neck – and if you somehow already know your neck measurements I commend you, you organised, collar-savvy human! 

Wearing the collar, I’m instantly reminded that its not as comfy as ‘old-faithful’ but then I’ve already confessed I’m heavily biased! This collar has no inner lining and rubber isn’t as soft and malleable as leather. When I wear this collar its not uncomfortable per say but there is certainly no hope of me forgetting its around my neck. Its palpable and obvious at all times and I’m honestly starting to see that as a positive. When I’ve agreed to be submissive throughout the space of a day, for example, it reminds me of my place (so I don’t forget I’m supposed to be serving my partner and not asking him why he hasn’t given me a back rub yet).

For me this is a ‘day collar’, one I’d wear mostly for show but always safe in the knowledge it’ll withstand anything a dom-ly partner might throw at it. I wouldn’t sleep in it, my three foot length of tangle-prone hair quickly wraps itself around the spikes and I’d worry about poking my partners eye out in the dark!

The only other negatives I can find with this collar is that there’s no loop on the end of the buckle so you can’t easily put a padlock through it. Locking the collar. Although it’s pretty rare that I’ve actually felt the need/desire to lock someones collar in place anyway. If you were determined to lock it and you don’t have the collar on the loosest setting then you could put a padlock through the last buckle hole which will prevent anyone undoing the collar.

So how has this collar faired, knowing its predecessor already had such a firm place in my heart? Pretty well to be honest! More ascetically hot than it is comfortable, this collar has proved to me that different can be great. I like it’s strong, bad-ass design and unerringly obvious presence when worn.  In a way my two collars compliment each other perfectly. Carrying out the same job in two totally different ways so neither encroach on the others use.
