Many BDSM explorers enjoy making their own implements to use for BDSM Scenes rather than purchasing from BDSM Vendors.

Types of Crafting

Crafting BDSM specific items often draws from several different skill sets such as:

  • Sewing and Weaving
  • Leatherworking
  • Woodworking
  • Blacksmithing
  • Copper and Brass Smithing
  • Machining

Consider reviewing some free resources on these subjects here.

Why Craft?

Reasons for doing so usually include one or more of the following:

  • Economy Making one's own toys can often be less monetarily expensive than purchasing a product from a merchant.
  • Customization Many crafters prefer to have special materials or other customizations that will personalize an item for the user.
  • Spiritual Many who utilize Spiritualism as part of their BDSM practices will wish to imbue their items with a bit of personal touch or energy.

“A man who works with his hands is a laborer; a man who works with his hands and his brain is a craftsman; but a man who works with his hands and his brain and his heart is an artist.” ~Louis Nizer[1]
