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 :)
Yes, you have asked for it! A strappado! Look what you did to poor Anahí!! It is very medieval to pull someone’s arms up like this, you can not do anything when you are in that position! It is really a lot more uncomfortable than it looks!
And the Irish 8 cuffs behind the back make sure Anahí will never escape this position, even when I leave her alone in the room. Which is exactly what happened. Again :) Lol, we just like to leave each other in trouble! Well, it’s my revenge! And I’m sure that she will get me back for this one!
Anahí is now on the site allllll the time :) LOL, I guess she has become a cuff girl too! Maybe I will update the header picture to include her soon, because some of you are really big Anahí fans!
And I agree: it is more fun doing updates when there’s two of us, because we can do contests! Who will get out the fastest today!? Will we get out at all? We are cuffed in the super hard to escape Irish 8 handcuffs. It is almost impossible to get out of them when you are cuffed behind your back, wrists crossed. They are just so tight on us! Who will win? Or will we have to help each other in the end… again… LOL
Some people have emailed me to say that I will never be able to escape from my Irish 8 handcuffs, wrists stacked behind my back. Well, I don’t see what is hard about that! It is fairly easy to do, and I will show you in this video!
Hmm, now I think about it, it might not be so easy if the keyhole is facing the other way… what do you think? Have you tried it?
I have received some questions about my Irish 8 handcuffs. There are two types in my collection: the snap shut model and the old fashioned reproduction. What is the difference? Well, what better way to explain than to show it to you, with a little help from my lovely assistant Anahí!! These two handcuffs are totally different. Different keys, different way of closing, different ways of escaping. The only thing that is similar is that they keep the wrists very close together and that they are both lady sized. Yes! Lady sized!!
OUCH! This one seriously hurt! Another brilliant fan suggestion… in theory… Me and Anahi are hogcuffed, but in an even more extreme way than usual: our wrists are crossed behind our backs with a pair of Irish 8’s and our legs are cuffed with ankle cuffs. This means we need two different keys each. The four keys are on the OTHER side of the room (like you always ask for in emails), so me and Anahi will have to get to the keys somehow, and then try to free ourselves. Who will win? Will anyone win??? Carpet burn here we come!!
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…
I received some questions about my Irish 8 handcuffs, so I decided to show them again in a webcam video. I love these cuffs so much, I actually want to get a second pair. They are very heavy, but comfortably smooth. But the most important thing about them is: they snap shut so quickly! It’s click and you’re screwed! No ratchet, no adjusting. Of course, you have to get the right size for your wrists (I have the lady size, LOL I’m a lady). I will show you how to lock them on yourself, and escape again. It is harder than you think!
Did you know there are big Irish 8 cuffs for your ankles!? I did not know that! You could have told me :) Anway, I love the KUB Irish 8 handcuffs, and now there are ankle cuffs too! Here is me cuffing myself and trying to get out again! Okay it was not that difficult because I already know the Irish 8 handcuffs (but they can be very hard for someone who has not tried before), so the video is short (and cheap)! What next? Walking in these ankle cuffs? :)
Today I will show you my KUB Irish 8 cuffs, I like them very much. They are smooth and comfortable, and they snap shut without warning LOL. The only problem is putting them on yourself. In this video diary you will see two takes, because I could not get the cuffs to close while sitting at the table. So I moved to the floor and did a second take. It’s easier when I can use my knees to snap them shut. I really love these, I have to get more pairs, so I can really immobilize my wrists completely! I wonder if I will be able to close multiple pairs on my wrists… hmm and what about getting them off again?
‘They’ said this could not be done… Well, they were wrong! LOL! Having received a pair of old fashioned Irish 8 handcuffs, I was told that if I lock my hands behind my back (crossed aka stacked) I would never be able to get out. As you know by now, I simply can not accept that cuffing positions are inescapable. I have to try for myself. This is a really challenging escape, and probably the first time you have seen this on the internet. It turns out that putting Irish 8 handcuffs on behind my back is even more difficult than escaping them… But if you are a fan of tough escapes, you really have to watch this one, you will love it!
