St. Andrew's Cross

The St. Andrew's cross is a cross in the shape of an X consisting of two beams. The name St. Andrew's Cross goes back to the apostle Andrew, who, according to reports from the 4th century, died on such a cross. Today, the St. Andrew's cross is found in front of railway crossings. But it also serves as a warning sign of danger in other areas of life. Therefore it is a familiar term to most people, but only few associate it with its use in BDSM.

The St. Andrew's cross is the captive cross in the domino studio.

It stands freely in the room or is firmly mounted on the wall and consists of 2 cross-shaped beams with eyelets at all four ends. Here the sub is tied and tied with all fours spread apart so that it feels at the mercy of the top. These crosses belong to the classic BDSM equipment, are made of wood or metal, partly decorated, upholstered or covered with leather and can be found in almost every studio.

It is also known as St. Andrew's Cross. Named after the apostle Andres. Diagonal cross.
