i saw some grimy plastic ones sold alongside 'viagras' on a makeshift stand at the back of rowell road in little india. It was a surreal experience walking through that backlane..

We can attest to these guys - they have great service and we have friends from outside SG ordering from them.

Not sure what's in Australia but there is at least one exception to the stark, large neon sign screaming "SEX Shop" places that look like they belong more on 42nd street than on Orchard or North Bridge road. I think they set those places up to ostracize the patrons.

Anyway this place is Oohtique in Boat Quay, at least it was there a couple of years ago. Probably more of what you are looking for.

Fluffy handcuffs are not welcome in Singapore however! A friend was hauled off to a room for questioning when customs discovered hers on a return flight from a semester in Australia.

She laughs about it now, but the threat of going to jail at the time was very sobering for her! :o

Do they need one? How about looking sideways at a politician if you are an opposition member? :P

Maybe not but they are very pragmatic so this kind of action has to serve relatively important purpose. Hard to image what this could here.

Handcuffs are considered police equipment and prohibited in Singapore without a permit:

According to this blog, applies only to metal handcuffs though -- or at least plastic/leather is unlikely to show up in the X-ray!
