X = X-cross





The St. Andrew's Cross, Crux decussata, X-cross, X-frame or saltire cross is a piece of equipment in BDSM dungeons. It typically provides restraining points for ankles, wrists, and waist. When secured to a saltire, the submissive is restrained in a spreadeagle position. The only problem remaining is obvious. 

Shall I give you a tour through the house? This is the living room, the kitchen and our master bedroom. Oh, the X-cross? Well we use that for tying and flogging... Now I have found a site "Foxy Furniture, hidden in plain sight" that solves this problem. Look what they did to this:




After removing the metal plate and you fold the four parts of the cross, put it on a pedestal, put a decorative column on top of it, hide the mounting bar with a display shelf and it looks like this:



Isn't it great? It is so simple, it is one of those things, you say to yourself, now why didn't I think of this myself? It is not so difficult to make yourself, but of course if you like this mahogany wood it goes with a perfect assemble manual. 

So, who knows, maybe one of our wishes may come true after all...

    1. Being bound to the cross is a special feeling Cat, it gives you no room at all to avoid that what is coming, and most of it you don't see coming... It is the helplessness that makes the X-cross so special.

      But different tastes for different people of course,

    1. It is very stable because where the display shelf is mounted, there are holes to secure the cross against the wall. The problem with the X-cross not mounted to the wall is that most of them are indeed not very secure at all...

      It is a wonderful idea...
      Glad you think so too,
      Han
