My top likes to beat me, and I like that too. They punch me in the thighs and chest, they punch and slap me in the face, they throw elbows and I catch them. Punching is tough on the hands, and you can break the small bones in the back of the hand pretty easily if you make a mistake, so I got them some boxing wraps for protection — but boxing wraps are no good if you don’t know how to use them. This video shows you how. 

Incidentally, here are a few things you need to know if you’re looking for good wraps. Length: 180” is good for large and medium hands, but you can cover small hands with 120”. The best wraps are the semi-elastic ones known as “Mexican wraps,” because the stretch offers good, flexible support and helps to keep the wraps from slipping. My favorites are TITLE hand wraps, because they’re lightweight and don’t bunch up too much between the fingers. (I don’t make any money from that link, btw.) Happy punching!
