* In some of the [[http://archiveofourown.org/series/255733 fight that will give you the right]] fics, d'Artagnan has been wearing shackles for several months, and for some of that time he's wearing versions with dull spikes inside. He has scars for the rest of the series.

* TruthInTelevision: As many police officers will confirm. Whether it is, like the ''{{Friends}}'' quote, just because they've always seen it done on TV and do it automatically, or the reassuring psychological effect of being bound and released, or just that handcuffs itch a bit, most perps will do this once the cuffs get taken off.

* When Darrel Conway of ''FanFic/RWBYReckoning'' is shackled to a chair, upon his release, the first thing he does is massage his wrists. [[UnstoppableRage Given that he thrashed about in anger when he first woke up]], it's understandably justified.

** Seriously, have someone put you in cuffs for 20+ minutes and try not to do this afterwards, it's impossible.

** There are some anecdotes that suggest the reason they do is is because handcuffs are sometimes closed as tight as possible (which is kind of the point). On bare skin, cuffs or zip ties can chafe and cause minor abrasive irritation. When not properly placed, they an also put an unpleasant amount of pressure on the bones of the wrist. Both of these concerns can be alleviated in the short term by rubbing the affected area.

* Played completely straight in ''Film/PokerNight'', both the automatic rubbing of wrists and how there are no after-effects of the bondage.

* Sort of averted in Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire books, where being tied up or chained up can be extremely painful, but also sort of played straight, since a couple of characters survive being restrained in ways (like being strung up dangling by their wrists for extended periods of time) that would probably kill them or at least permanently disable them in real life.

* ''Literature/NickVelvet'': Nick does this after he released from being [[ChainedToABed handcuffed to a bed]] in "The Theft of Nick Velvet".



* ''{{Friends}}'': Simultaneously subverted and lampshaded. Chandler's been handcuffed to a chair. Upon being released he does this. Rachel asks if it hurts. He responds that it doesn't, but people always do it in the movies.

** In ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeagueUnlimited'': "Grudge Match" Black Canary rubs her wrists after being released. It should be noted her wrists were badly burned and she had been ''wearing the cuffs over them''. Ouch.
