The meaning of a BDSM Collar: why you wear them and where to buy them

These days collars can be just for fun, or because you are someone’s sexual plaything. In this blog post we explore the significance of the BDSM Collar.

In BDSM, a collar can be defined as a device of any material worn around the neck of a person who the dominant wants to signify as their submissive or slave. It is a symbol of their relationship, much like wedding rings that symbolize two people’s vows. Some couples even have “collaring ceremonies”, similar to having a wedding.

Wearing a collar is a public way of showing that you own or are owned by a particular person, while other agreements of submission and ownership can be made over contracts like in the movie Fifty Shades of Grey.

Where To Get Collars
The basics:
You can walk into any local sex shop and find an array of different collars. Pick out your favorite one, or order one from an online sex store. The standard collar is a black leather collar. Some collars have rings where you can put a tag on to mark you submissive, or clip on a leash to take them for a walk.

For fashion and function:
Bait’D Designs makes some pieces that can symbolize your dominant or submissive relationships. The Satin Rope Choker is a elegant way to lead your sub around the room and take control to a whole new level in your relationship. The Gold Anklet can also be worn as a choker to symbolize ownership. You can tie the choker around your submissive’s neck while also using it as handcuffs or ankle ties for extra BDSM playtime.

Fashion:
Since chokers have become a trend in fashion, you can find ranges of different chokers from gothic, to boho, to hipster. Check out your local Forever 21, Urban Outfitters, or Free People to find something that can blend into society without being too noticeable. ;)

Know that you know about the BDSM collar it’s time to spice things up in the bedroom. Whether you are dominant or submissive, giving a collar to your partner is a great way to show how much you care.
