St. Andrew's Cross

The St. Andrew's cross is a cross consisting of two beams in the shape of an X. The name St. Andrew's cross comes from 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 is also used in other areas of life as a warning sign of danger. Therefore, it is a familiar term to most people, but only a few associate it with its use in BDSM.

The St. Andrew's cross is the bondage cross in the domina studio.

It stands freely in the room or is firmly mounted on the wall and consists of 2 beams in the shape of a cross with eyelets at all four ends. Here the sub is bound and tied with all fours spread so that he feels at the mercy of the top. These crosses belong to the classic BDSM equipment, are made of wood or metal, partly decorated, padded 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.
