I had a few requirements for said bed. Some were purely aesthetic. I wanted a wooden frame bed, in a pale wood. I don't particularly like iron bedsteads, and while I like dark woods, I don't think they will go very well in my house. Most of all, I cannot stand "divan" style beds, so they were totally out.
Once I had the "look" out of the way, I turned to thoughts of a more kinky nature. A girl needs a bed she can be tied to. It's as simple as that really. Which means the bed has to have places to tie both arms and legs to. On a slightly more practical note, I also wanted the end of the bed to be high enough that I didn't "not see it" and walk into it constantly. Bruises on bums are OK. Bruises on calves are not that attractive.
Simple list then, palish wooden bed frame, with a decent size head and foot board, and some thing that you can fix a girl to. It was actually quite hard to find, but I managed:
Now all I need is someone to tie me to it and give me a nice spanking!
