You don't need an entire "red room" kitted out with gear to spice up your sex life. These seven top buys will open a new world of pleasure...

1. Bondage kit and card game, £14.99
Want to explore your BDSM fantasies but not sure how you're partner will react to you installing a bondage chair in the bedroom? Try making a game of it. The Bound by Love Bondage Kit and Card Game is a fun way to try out some kinky scenarios without pressure.

2. Complete soft bondage kit, £28.99
This starter kit contains everything a bondage beginner needs – including a blindfold, small ball gag, soft flogger, and adjustable wrist and ankle cuffs. Remember to introduce a "safe word" with your partner early on. Things can get heated quickly and you need to develop trust before trying more advanced turn-ons.

3. Discreet under-bed restraints, £34.99
When you're ready to move on to the next level, invest in some professional-looking under-bed restraints. More heavy duty than most, they allow you to bind both your partner's wrists and legs and are sturdy enough to survive being pulled on, while the Velcro cuffs offer easy release – at least for the one in control. The system fits under the mattress and can be adjusted to the required length.

4. Leather and suede paddle, £15.00
Any self-respecting bondage kit requires at least one paddle or flogger. Start with the soft suede side for gentle slaps and build up to impressive thwacks with the smooth, matte leather side to leave your partner's bottom blushing.

5. Tease flogger, £14.99
If a paddle doesn't hit the spot, introduce your lover to the delights of The Tease Flogger. The non-intimidating whip is an ideal choice for first time spanking, delivering everything from delicate tickles to spine-tingling lashes.

6. Collar and lead set, £9.99
Ready for some BDSM play? It's time to introduce a collar and lead set. The padded collar connects to the strong lead with a quick-release clip for secure, safe play that opens you up to a whole new world of S&M fun.

7. Nipple suckers, £11.99
If you're new to nipple play, these soft silicone nipple suction pumps are a safe choice. As you get more advanced, or need stronger stimulation, there are vibrating nipple pumps.
