Game night in Irish 8s

Not sure why these cuffs are called Irish 8s, but me and Anahí are tightly cuffed in them on our game night! As far as wrist closeness is concerned, these cuffs are the top of the line! Your wrist are so close together, you have to do everything with 2 hands at the same time. And that’s not easy when you are playing a game where you have to move little balls around a board!
Me and Anahí are really training ourselves lately to be able to spend more time in these Irish 8s. We haven’t done 24 hours yet, but maybe we will try that soon! It is so hard to move around in these! Any suggestions for Irish 8 challenges are very welcome!
Boring video? Not at all if you are interested in Irish 8 limitations! But in case you think so, I have made this one very low priced :)

Overhead cuffing: flexible Anahí!

   

I received a picture in my email inbox, suggesting that I should try this position! It involves cuffing one arm overhead and the other one behind the back. You have to be really flexible to pull that off! First we tried with a regular pair of handcuffs. I couldn’t do it (I’m probably too muscular lol), but the amazing Anahí could! She was totally stuck like that, so we immediately loved this position!
Next, we tried it with thumbcuffs. You would think that is harder, because thumbcuffs are shorter, but it is actually easier because your thumbs can be closer together than your wrists when you are doing this position. Eventually even I could do this! And I have to tell you, this is a really hard position, there is no escape and there is a lot of strain! Definitely not a good position for losing the keys! Enjoy this educational picture set and video clip, but don’t try this at home :D Lol!

Video diary: cuffed to the table

Remember the TimeBond device? It is a black cylinder with another black cylinder inside. You fill it with water, pop it in the freezer and then you can use it for timed escapes. So me and Anahí handcuffed ourselves to the table using a very heavy chain. The TimeBond is suspended from the ceiling and we have about 1 hour to talk and wait for the key to drop…
Or at least, that’s what we thought… for some reason, this time it took almost FOUR hours for the key to drop!! I don’t know why it took so much longer, but we literally spent 4 hours chained to my desk. There was nothing we could do to speed it up, and there was no backup, because usually Anahí is my backup and she was handcuffed right next to me! It was an incredibly long wait, and we both had to go to the toilet really bad! Next time, we need to test this a little bit more before doing a video diary with no one there to help us…

Blast from the past! Blindfolded escape!

I found some videos from 4 years ago! They have not appeared on my blog yet :) In these videos, you will see a very young and inexperienced Chrissy with short hair (with purple highlights!)… LOL!! I’m just kidding, I was already very good at escaping 4 years ago! Just check out this video of my attempting a blindfolded escape, hands cuffed in Hiatts Ultimates behind my back, keyholes away from my hands!
I start by moving the handcuffs to the front, which was easier 4 years ago ;) Then I use my mouth to unlock the cuffs, it is the only way to do it! Only when I escape from the cuffs, I am allowed to take off my blindfold!
