The Irish 8 contest

   

I proposed a little game to my Mexican friend Anahí: we both cuff ourselves with Irish 8 handcuffs, wrists stacked in front. Winner is the one who can escape fastest. Loser has to wear BOTH handcuffs stacked in front for THREE hours :D Simple!

Video diary: the mysterious cuffs

A parcel arrived containing some mysterious looking cuffs. The two halves can be locked together using a tiny padlock. All I know is they are medieval looking and they are probably rare. I don’t think there is a lot of demand for these, so not a lot will be made. Here is a webcam video of me showing you these new cuffs, they are very hard to lock onto yourself!
If anyone knows what type of cuffs this is, or maybe a name for them, please let me know!

Outdoors in my heavy Clejuso cuffs

I took my heavy Clejuso handcuffs out for a nice walk! Sometimes you have to spoil your handcuffs by taking them outside, showing them some of the great outdoors! I found this nice sandy area where I tried to do a kind of fashion photo shoot in Clejuso handcuffs! Well, kind of… I just enjoyed the great weather and the feel of the super heavy cuffs on my wrists ;-) I hope you like this set, please comment if you do!

Neck cuff trick

   

This neck cuff trick will be very hard for some people. It depends on how flexible you are! Suppose you have cuffed yourself in a position where your neck is attached to your wrists, arms under your legs. It happens. Easy enough to get out if you have a key. But what if you left the key on a table? Then you will have to get your legs through your arms to free yourself! Can I do it? Warning: VERY funny update :)

Video diary: showing the ASP handcuffs to Anahí

In this video I am showing Anahí my ASP handcuffs. She wants to know the difference between the chain and the hinged handcuffs, and she is curious about the double locking. We lock each other in the cuffs, and we made this video so you can learn something too ;-) LOL! Everyone visiting my place just goes straight to the pink ASP handcuffs, they just ignore the rest, there is something about pink cuffs! I will try to find more colors (or more pink, who knows!).

Escaping ASP zip ties

   

So I have these weird plastic yellow things that are actually handcuffs. From my favourite brand ASP (well that is because they make pink cuffs, LOL). I have seen these used by the police during riots. And now it is going to be a riot watching me try to escape from these things. There is no key, so I will show you how to use a flat piece of metal to do this trick. If I can do it…

Video diary: another very bad idea

Sometimes you guys have very bad ideas! LOL :-D You tell me to try cuffing my elbows in the heavy Clejuso handcuffs, but you don’t warn me to keep someone around to rescue me… because it is IMPOSSIBLE to get out! It doesn’t matter where I put the keyholes, as I found out my forearms are longer than the distance between the cuffs… grrr… So I did this on my webcam, alone, and after a few minutes of struggling these cuffs started to HURT because of the restricted blood flow. Hands tingling, I had to quickly find a neighbour to get me out… thanks guys :-p

Anahí is a bitch!

   

We were just playing around with my collection when Anahí suddenly told me she had an idea for a little game. I had to lie down on my stomach and just relax… Just relax? I had a bad feeling when Anahi started hogcuffing me. She is not very good with cuffs yet, but somehow she learned about hogcuffing (probably from our contest) using a pair of legirons and a pair of hinged handcuffs.
Then she told me she was going to do some shopping and leave me there for 2 hours! TWO HOURS!! I started screaming and yelling at her. I may have called her a few things I shouldn’t have. It was no use, she just left, thinking it was very funny. What happened next? Watch the video to find out! LOL

Video diary: Neck cuff, handcuffs, thumbcuffs

Here is a very difficult challenge I received by email! I have to cuff myself in my neck cuff, handcuffs, and thumbcuffs. And try to get out. Well… it would not be so hard if I hadn’t decided to make all cuffs (including the neck one) very tight. Especially thumbcuffs are hard when they are tight! And to make things worse, I thought it would be a good idea to put all of the keyholes on the wrong side, now that is hard!!

Straitjacket

   

Okay, it’s not cuffs. Not even metal. But some of you would like to see me try a straitjacket, so I did! I thought it would be easy to escape, so I tried to make an escape video. I will not give away the result here (just watch the video to find out!), but I can tell you it is harder than it looks! I like the feel of the straitjacket, but I would prefer cuffs any day! Still, it was fun to do, thanks for the request!

Video diary: showing the fiddle to Anahí

My friend Anahí has never seen the RigidFiddle, so I decide to show her how it works. She is very curious about it, and a little afraid of the big scissor-like thing going around her neck. I carefully explain, and then lock her into it. Of course, I let her lock me into it as well. We discussed some things we could do while in the fiddle, and what would happen if you lose the key :)
A shame I didn’t have 2 fiddles! :)

OMG I love these colors!

Wow I need to get these Hiatt-Thompson cuffs! They now have NINE different colors, and the newest color is WHITE!! White handcuffs, that is so cool, I have never seen them anywhere. I need them now! Cuff me a rainbow! LOL
My top 9 list in MUST HAVE order:
1. white white white
2. red
3. blue
4. yellow
5. purple
6. orange
7. green
8. pink (cause I already have pink ASP handcuffs)
9. black
But forget making lists, I just want them ALL! And possibly even 2 pairs of all colours! :D

Video diary: now let’s try something harder

The pink ASP handcuffs were very easy to escape without a key! So now I will try some very hard to escape cuffs: the Hiatt’s Ultimate handcuffs! They are completely rigid so it is harder to use my hands, but they are also much more secure to prevent picking. Watch how I get on with escaping these cuffs WITHOUT a key!

Self cuffing – on a chair

   

Aaaah a request to cuff myself to a chair again! That is always so much fun to do! I love it! This time I picked a very heavy chair so I can not fall over. I cuff my ankles to the chair and my arms behind, this is a very rigid position, I can not even move!! I used Hiatts Ultimate handcuffs and cuffed my palms out to make it harder.
This is an incredible challenge, especially after I dropped the keys :(

Video diary: escaping handcuffs WITHOUT a key

Until now, I always used a key to escape my handcuffs. But what if there is no key? Or you can’t reach a key? In this video I will show you how to open handcuffs without a key.
I use my pink ASP handcuffs as an example, but it will work for most cuffs. Don’t be fooled by the color, these are real cuffs, and I can open them very very easily. Or do I make it look easy because I practised? LOL! I’d love to see YOU try this!

Neck cuff contest

   

This is fun! Me and Anahi wanted to do another escape contest with the speedcuffs, but this time I decided to make it a little bit more difficult. Anahi has some experience with the speedcuffs now, so to make sure I would win, I connected us using neck cuffs! Anahi has not been neck cuffed very often, so she does not really know it is very hard to open it because you can not see the keyhole. You have to feel your way out :D Let’s see who escapes first!!

Video diary: double Irish 8 behind the back – frustration!!

Here is the most rigid position I have ever found myself in: Irish 8 behind the back, wrists crossed, using TWO pairs of cuffs. The double pair means the rigid area is bigger and since they are very tight I can not move my arms at all!
Worse, these cuffs require you to push the key in and pull the cuffs open at the same time. I am really hurting myself trying to even get the key in, but it is no use, this is an inescapable position.
Ever wanted to see me frustrated? Look at my face at the end of the video, I am seriously disappointed that I will have to go get someone to let me out. LOL, I really was angry…

Video diary: the TimeBond explained

You have been asked me what this TimeBond thing is, where I got it and how it works. So I decided to to a video diary about this self bondage device. It is very nice to play with if there is no one around to keep you locked. It works by freezing (yes really!!) water into a cylinder, and it gives you about 1 hour of fun!

Self hogcuffing

   

Some of you wanted to see how I get myself in a hogcuff position. And I suppose you also want to see me escape again… although I am getting the feeling that many of you would just simply leave me hogcuffed on the floor for hours, judging by your emails :-)
In this picture and video set, I will explain how hogcuffing works. And yes, I have to move on my stomach towards the key first… I know you like that! Hahahah :D

Video diary: Palms out

Here’s another request! Can I escape if I cuff myself palms out? You don’t know what ‘palms out’ is? It is when your handpalms are facing outwards. To do this, you have to make the cuffs very tight so you can not turn your wrists at all. This is pretty hard! :-)
