Mummification Bondage Master Guide -  Learn How to Wrap Safely

 

Mummification bondage can be an exhilarating experience for both the Dom and the sub. However, it’s also a risky kink. Here’s a detailed guide on materials, safety tips, aftercare, and other useful info.

 

 

WHAT IS MUMMIFICATION BONDAGE?


 

Mummification is considered an extreme form of bondage where someone is wrapped up or “cocooned” and therefore completely immobilized. You also have the option of wrapping up one (or several) body parts or the entire body – depending on the comfort and consent of the participant.

 

 

WHY DO PEOPLE LIKE IT?


 

There are several reasons why people like mummification. 

 

  • It can be about completely giving up control to someone else – and enjoying the resulting feeling of helplessness.

 

  • Giving up sexual control, so whatever the other person does is “out of your hands” – this can be liberating and allow someone to enjoy sex without social constructs of guilt from sexual preferences or kinks.

 

  • It can add to sensory deprivation and allow subs to float in a warm, empty space.

 

  • It can include different levels of humiliation – either from the act itself, having the genitals exposed, or through verbal humiliation from the Top.

 

  • The tight wrappings can create a womb-like environment where someone can feel safe and relaxed.

 

 

WHAT DO YOU NEED?


 

Besides a willing participant and detailed knowledge of the risks? You need something to wrap with. Here is a list of possible materials along with their pros and cons…

 

PLASTIC WRAP – Cheap and easy to work with (at least easier than some other materials). No worries about cutting out of it because it costs nothing. However, it can NOT breathe and the person being wrapped could experience overheating and dehydration.

 

ACE BANDAGES – Comfortable and reusable but more expensive. Breathes better than other options but you still need to watch for any overheating. Since it’s stretchy, you can get a tight bind, but it also means it can cut off circulation if done too tight. Can also fold and bunch around the joints.

 

MEDICAL WRAPS – Besides bandages, there are also other medical wraps and tape that can be used. Good for medical play scenes. Will be more expensive. Need to watch for how stretchy and possible circulation problems.

 

PLASTER – Extreme mummification (cannot move at all). Uses wet plaster pieces like you would a cast for a broken leg or arm. Not a “fast” mummification. Needs plastic wrap or fabric over the body to avoid hair being pulled out. High risk of overheating (needs parts of the body exposed to be safer). Harder to remove for emergencies. Great for medical play.

 

BONDAGE TAPE – Safest tape for the skin (will not pull or stick). Only sticks to itself and is washable/reusable. Can be a bit harder to worth with if you’re new to the material. Does not breathe.

 

DUCT TAPE – Cheap and strong but sticks to skin. Needs a layer of plastic wrap underneath or pantyhose. Also does not breathe. Good for “classic” feeling bondage or kidnapping scenes.

COTTON FABRIC – Safest for beginners. Breathes wonderfully and little risk of overheating or dehydration. Washable and reusable but you will need to sew the lengths together to make strips long enough. Can fold and bunch, so needs more overlapping.

 

LEATHER – Expensive AF, but can be stimulating for those who love the smell or feel of leather. Similar to cotton, it will need to be sewn into long strips. Can cause overheating.

 

INDUSTRIAL PLASTIC – Wider pieces of plastic make it easier and faster to apply the final layer of bondage or affixing someone to a pole or piece of furniture.

 

BAGS – Customized sacks mean to fit and restrain the entire body. Easy and fast to get in/out of. VERY, VERY expensive.

 

 

 

TYPES OF MUMMIFICATION


 

There are several things you can do, but my advice (if you’re new to the kink) is to start SMALL. Only wrap a couple of body parts for a short amount of time and slowly work your way up as your experience and knowledge build.

 

ZONE WRAPPING – Only wrap the legs, arms, torso, upper body (with arms), lower body, etc. Less movement restriction but safer and good for those who want to get used to the sensation. Also good if you’re using something that doesn’t breathe that well and your partner has circulation or heating issues.

 

PARTIAL WRAPPING – From the neck to the ankles (can leave holes for breasts and/or genitals). Breathing passages are not obstructed. Mouth free to communicate issues. Can add a blindfold to add to sensory deprivation or control.

 

COMPLETE WRAPPING – From head to toe (with holes or breathing tube for mouth/nose). The most restrictions and psychological effects but also the most dangerous.

 

 

TIPS ON WRAPPING


 

A combination of materials to minimum coverage and maximum restraint.

 

  • You’ll need between 75 to 100 feet of plastic wrap to do a whole body (so imagine how much you’ll need with thinner material).

 

  • It's not a fast process, expect a minimum of 30 minutes to get them cocooned. 

 

  • Make sure you both go to the bathroom before the session.

 

  • Remove all jewelry and other sharp things that could tear the wrappings, hurt the sub, or interfere with circulation.

 

  • How much overlap depends on the material, but joint areas generally need more overlap to stop the material from bunching, folding, or rolling.

 

  • Cut costs on tape by wrapping in plastic (or other material) then reinforcing just above the joints or other areas that need more support.

 

  • If your material is sticky (like tape or plaster), you will need a barrier between the skin and the wrappings – plastic wrap, pantyhose, BDSM gear like spandex hoods), or normal clothing.

 

  • Wrap each arm and leg separately THEN bind them to the torso (no skin-to-skin contact).

 

  • Put a pillow or padding between the legs (especially the knees and ankles) to relieve pressure and discomfort.

 

  • Have the sub take a deep breath before you wrap the torso (so there will be enough room for them to comfortably breathe during your session).

 

  • Leave patches of skin bare to help with overheating – also so you can watch their skin tone for circulation issues.

 

  • Wrap the torso diagonally, not horizontally.

 

  • Wrap the upper body first (while they are sitting or on their knees), then have them lie down to wrap the lower body (no falling risk)

 

  • Wrap the head last so the sub can communicate. The head is also the first to be unwrapped. 

 

  • Once they're wrapped, proceed to the next (pre-negotiated) stage - this can be just unwrapping them, leaving them (monitored) to enjoy it for a pre-determined amount of time, running your hands along their body, play with genitals, using a sex toy, etc. 

 

  • When cutting them out, if possible, put your hand between the material and their skin – creating another layer of protection.

 

 

SIDE NOTE – You’ll notice I haven’t mentioned too much about the steps or techniques on the actual wrapping. The problem is different materials act differently and each person is unique with how they can hold their bodies or how long they can maintain a position.

 

Aside from the basics mentioned in this article, I find that exploration and experimentation (while following safety guidelines), is the best way to learn “how best to wrap” someone.

 

For me, I have to watch my partner’s hands carefully. I would not include them in the arm wraps and only bind them in the last stages (so I can see them clearly).

 

 

HOW DO YOU KEEP SAFE?


 

Since mummification is a HIGH-RISK kink practice, you need to be extra careful…

 

  1. Communicate with your sub on the comfort levels, limits, and mummification experiences.

 

  1. Never do full mummification on someone who’s never done it before.

 

  1. If you are new to wrapping, always start with small areas.

 

  1. Never pull the material too hard and risk cutting off circulation.

 

  1. NEVER EVER leave the sub alone once you’ve started wrapping.

 

  1. Have emergency scissors ready to cut them out.

 

  1. There is falling danger if your sub is standing.

 

  1. Keep communicating with your partner during the session.

 

  1. Be aware of their psychological state – anxiety attacks etc.

 

  1. Watch for overheating or dehydration.

 

  1. Have blankets, water, and chocolate for aftercare.

 

  1. Never allow the air passages to be blocked.

 

  1. Be aware of conditions that could but their breathing at risk (respiratory problems etc.).

 

  1. Avoid wrapping the neck (use a hood instead or extremely loose wrappings).

 

  1. Having a second person to help with the wrapping is useful.

 

  1. Never keep ropes or supports under the armpits (to help them stand), could cause nerve damage.

 

Pay attention for the following, if they appear, remove them from the mummification immediately.

 

  • Blue lips
  • Blue or purple fingertips or toes, nail beds
  • Coughing, gagging
  • Dizziness
  • Excessive sweating
  • Pale skin tone
  • Ragged, rapid, or unusual breathing
  • Red or blotchy skin
  • Shivering, shaking
  • Slurred speech, can’t speak at all
  • Unresponsive

 

 

IMPORTANT AFTERCARE


 

Since the body’s temp will probably be higher, you don’t want it to drop too quickly once they're out of their wrappings. Have a towel ready to wipe away sweat and then wrap them in a warm blanket. Hold them close and monitor their physical, mental, and emotional state until things settle back to normal.

 

Make sure they drink water. Offer chocolate if they need a pick-me-up. A warm shower can also help them acclimate back to the real world and a state of comfort.

 

Since this is extreme bondage, never skimp on the aftercare.
