specialized version of bondage, in which
the whole body, including the head (usually a breathing tube is used or
the mouth/nose areas left open)
is wrapped tightly.

Again, the concept is to wrap the material of choice
around and around the entire body, until the bottom
is completely immobilized. Holes may be made for access to genitals and
other areas, as preferred.

wrap, you can use cloth or latex bandages or even leather strips, or
pieces of cloth secured with duct tape or other tapes. You can
get something of the same effect by using sleepsacks and hoods. But
anyone can obtain saran wrap or

irritation may result from contact with the adhesive. Go easy, or apply
it over a barrier material such as vet

absolute comfort is important in creating the headspace which is
to maximize the experience. If you are looking for a sexually oriented
adventure this probably won't do it for you! As part of a scene,
it can be extremely effective, so don't rule it out until you've tried
it. A bottom's headspace is not quite the same after being released

to his or her advantage -- and of course to create an intense

The process of wrapping will cause disorientation, and the loss of all
sense of direction; they will often attempt to push themselves over,
thinking that they are already falling, so you must be prepared to hold
them upright, especially if the bottom is not experienced in this area.
In order to minimize the danger of this happening, make sure the bottom
understands the potential for this phenomenon, and will trust you
to allow the falsely detected fall to happen -- which ironically will

safety precautions in case of emergency - whether it is physical danger

scissors are ideal for cutting off the wrap quickly, since they are
rounded on the bottom so they will not cut the skin.
