“Fear can be a potent aphrodisiac.”-Kele Moon
A dungeon is more than a place that was developed in the Middle Ages for torments to take place. It has become a modern place for consensual torments as well. It’s where kinky couples store their bondage equipment, and there are also public play spaces that bill themselves as dungeons too. A modern dungeon doesn’t have to be a dark, dank basement as the traditional ones were. Pretty much any room is game for dungeon material. With the right lighting, accessories and accouterments, and furniture, a dungeon could be well on its way.
The reason why many people need to have dungeons if they are kinky is because some bondage furniture doesn’t blend well into the natural environment of the home. The most popular pieces of dungeon equipment include larger pieces like the St. Andrew’s Cross. This is an x shaped frame that makes it easy to bind people to in a standing position. There are also large spanking benches, bondage cages and massage tables with strategically places bondage points that may look out of place in the living room when the in-laws come to visit.
Public Play Spaces
Most large cities have at least one public dungeon, which serves as a space where almost anyone can come and play. When you go to one of these places, you should read up on the rules as they often have different policies as to who can play and when, or the rules of engagement with strangers. You should also read up on their policies for cleanliness to make sure you don’t break any boundaries and offend anyone. If you live in a place with a lot of kinky people, there may also be dungeon spaces that can be rented out for a fee, by the room, by the hour. These are great spaces to get experience with more advanced equipment before you decide to shell out the capital to install them in your own home.
