    I know your expertise on this. I must say we should have an online discussion on this. Writing only comments will close the discussion straight away! And will restrict the benefits from this information.

    Take control, or hand it over to your partner, and feel the pleasure of taking care of your partner. Here are you who set the boundaries and it is common for you to decide on a security word that is used when you or your partner wants to express a stop, pause or change something in common play. https://sexleketoy.blogs.sapo.pt/bdsm-adventures-410

    Have you tested bondage or is it something you’re curious about? This sexual activity has long been something that egged the imagination and allowed people to live like their innermost dreams. The word bondage comes from English’s “ferocious” and aims to limit the mobility of one or more people. This can be done using either ropes, handcuffs, chains, boots or the like. Those who love bondage can testify to an increased enjoyment when they can not move freely and thus trust in their partner or playmate. Bondage has nothing to do with compulsion or violence, on the contrary, the game is about mutual respect and trust. At Mshop you can find the toys and accessories you need to live your fantasies.
