I love seeing a woman tied up with scarves. I particularly love seeing a woman gagged with a scarf. When I talk about scarves I am referring to silk (or silk-like) scarves. I prefer square scarves over the oblong or long scarves. Although any scarf of any material is generally better than no scarf. My love of scarf bondage isn't because scarves are the most effective bondage material. [Arguments can be made either way on the effectiveness of scarves.] It isn't because they can be colorful, although I do like that. It isn't because it is a softer way to bind a woman. Suggest that to a woman who has a scarf tightly tied in her mouth and she would disagree. Others may suggest these as the reason for scarf bondage, but these are not the primary reasons I love scarf bondage.
Scarves are (primarily) a woman's fashion accessory and the only one that is ideally suited for bondage. It can be used for tying or gagging. It is readily available draped over or tied on the woman's neck. over her head, used as a belt or tied (or carried) in her purse. She is actually wearing something that can immediately be used to tie her up or gag her. If she isn't wearing a scarf, it could be hanging on a hat rack in a hallway, in a dresser in her bedroom or in a closet. There is always a logical reason for a scarf to be handy.
Although not as personal as a lady's panties or even perhaps pantyhose, scarves are still a personal item, often worn next to a woman's skin and carrying her scent. It was something personal that was bought for fashion that is suddenly one of her processions (that she probably paid for) being used forcibly to keep her restrained or quiet against her will. I find that very erotic. I find it even more erotic that a woman would use her own scarf to bind or gag another woman. [I know, I know taking off her panties and stuffing them in the other woman's mouth is extremely erotic, but what if she secures those panties with her own high end scarf?...wow.] A piece of tape slapped over her mouth or even a rag that suddenly appears tied in her mouth just doesn't have the same impact for me...doesn't mean I don't prefer or like the cloth gag, just not the same impact.
Not surprisingly, ladies scarves tend to be very feminine, which does incorporate the softness and the colors, but also feminine patterns (flowers, scenes or geometric patterns that women find pretty) that a guy would never wear. Being bound and/or gagged with those scarves, forcing her to wear these very feminine fashion accessories in a manner that is not feminine, but can still look very feminine. I find that erotic.
When some bondage authors write stories often they try to satisfy everyone (much like some bondage companies). They use tape of various types, cloth gags and of course, often a scarf is thrown in, all in the same story...apparently they have never heard of a MO...someone tying people up is going to do it mostly one way only. Back to the point. "She was gagged with a scarf"...means nothing to someone interested in scarf bondage. Perhaps saying 'she was gagged with duct tape" is all the tape folks need. Those interested in scarf bondage want details including the design, type of material, etc.
"He pulled the designer scarf from her coat pocket. The display of the gentleman rider and hounds racing after their prey showed in a vivid display on a creamy white background surrounded by a ruby red boarder of the large square. He twirled the triangle of thick silk into a rope of silk and approached her. The lady was in no position to protest being gagged with the scarf as her satin panties were already tucked away in her beautiful mouth adding a flavor she tried not to think about. As her red lips wrapped around the soft silk she regretted her last application of her favorite bright red lipstick, which would now mar her favorite scarf. A $300 scarf at that. The sexual sounding moan that escaped from her mouth as he pulled the expensive silk tight was her realization that she had lost all control for the first time in her life, a prospect that surprisingly excited her." Perhaps this is an extreme example, but still the erotic aspect of scarf bondage is in the details.
Details are also important in photo sets and videos featuring scarf bondage. Where did the scarf come from...was the heroine wearing it? I don't like it when bondage materials simply materialize, like they so often do on TV. Scarves have a reason to be in a scene as a fashion accessory so they should be used as a plot device. I once saw a show (Six Million Dollar Man) which had a woman wearing a bandanna headscarf. Did they gag her with that bandanna? No, they gagged her with another bandanna! I admit it was neat seeing her wear one bandanna and gagged with another, but wouldn't a crook just grab the one off of her head? It just wasn't logical.
While scarves are my favorite type of bondage, particularly for gags. I also love rope, pantyhose and various types of cloth gags.
