Did you know you can get handcuffs and shackles on Ebay?

Just sayin'.

(We writers have to know these things . . . )

Uh-huh, writer's research is what it's called now, eh?

No cuffs here; I could lend you some silk scarves though...

Just sayin', huh? ;) I think you can get almost anything on ebay!

Thanks Scotty. I'll let Gary know you offered. :)

Rhubarb--I kind of knew that, but thought finding this particular item so easily attainable was funny (and a little disturbing).

In truth, I was doing a reality check with respect to a villain's mode of controlling their victims using these, (how easy they'd be to get, etc) evil villainess or not.

A quick google (If anyone ever checks my search history, I'll have a lot of explaining to do) revealed that it's not at all difficult to get your hands on this kind of thing. I was most amused to discover that you can buy them on ebay for less than $20.00.

Who knew . . .

We've upgraded our restraints, so I'll sell you our old ones for... oh, you're not actually in the market for them?
