Put all the BDSM toys in a box in your attic.
With your new partner, buy a couple of new toys, ideally ones you'd like to add to your arsenal anyway.
After a suitable period of time, if you feel it won't squick out the new girl, take out the box (obviously while she isn't there) and say "Check out all this cool bondage gear my leather daddy friend gave me when he moved out of the country."
If you think she'll be squicked out that it's used even if it wasn't by a former partner, you can get rid of it or leave it in the attic.
It's cheaper, it's only a white lie, and you're honoring the tradition of one BDSM enthusiast passing toys along to another one. (Although that part will be backwards--Younger, less experienced you will be passing toys along to an older, more experienced you.)
