Erotic & Bondage Blindfolds

Blindfolds and Bondage 101

Blindfolds are great for beginners looking to get into BDSM. At first glance, it may be difficult to see what a Blindfold can bring to the bedroom, but those accustomed to using them for pleasure will tell you they are a must-have in any nightstand. Imagine surrendering your sight and diving into that world of darkness under the command of your partner, one who wants to dominate, pleasure, tease, or erotically torment you while you squirm with anticipation. That’s just the tip of the iceberg of what kind of kinky stuff couples can unlock in the bedroom with the help of a simple little blindfold. Blindfolds are great to get you fully into subspace because there is no assembly required. All you need to do is slip it on, have your partner do the same, and let your other senses take over. The fear or curiousness about what will happen next will show just how willing you are and much you’re willing to trust your partner.

Is a Blindfold a Sex Mask?

Yes. It is perhaps the most basic version of a sex mask. A blindfold is a piece of fabric that is fastened around the head to prevent the wearer from being able to see anything. One of the best things about Blindfolds is they work great for beginners but are still used by experts. They really are the perfect kinky accessory to add some flare to your sex life, allowing you to turn off everything else around you and relax. The joy of giving the keys to someone else and letting them drive your car is the bliss of submission.

Why Do People Insist on Using Blindfolds During Sex?

Some might wonder, ‘Why would I want to wear a Blindfold during sex?’ This is understandable, especially if you or your partner spent money on other forms of roleplay like nurses’ outfits, candle wax, and whips. It makes sense, you shouldn’t be bumbling around your room blindfolded with a lit candle. Blindfolds aren’t meant to be used every time or even for the whole session (although they can be) but they are better used for precise moments in a long night of lovemaking. Arguably the number one reason men and women love using Blindfolds while lovemaking is that by taking away the sense of sight, their other senses become heightened. A simple touch on the arm or soft kiss on the neck becomes amplified and even more intense with the lack of sight. For those who like things rough, the pressure of nipple clamps becomes explosive in the best possible way when you have no idea what’s happening right beside you or what’s coming up next, but you can feel it.

Is Using a Blindfold Considered Bondage?

It’s not likely to be the number one thing on everyone’s bondage list, but wearing a Blindfold during sex is still considered to be bondage. Since wearing it has surrendered one of their senses, they are at the mercy of their partner. The person not wearing the mask is the dominant while the wearer is the subordinate.
