These masks can be made from a multitude of different materials such as latex, leather, spandex, PVC, plastic, and vinyl as well as other variants. Couples may functionally use Sex Masks or instead opt to use them cosmetically as a piece of a costume. Dressing up as favorite characters from TV shows, movies, or video games could add a lot of excitement to someone’s love life. Some people go the extra mile and dress up in entire costumes, like Furries, and don expensive and elaborate masks, while others may dress up as a French maid, a nurse or doctor, or even an uncivilized wild person. Masks can cover the whole face, half the face, or even part of the face. A blindfold or an eyepatch could be considered masks, just the same as a ski mask or the mask of a fictional crime-fighting vigilante.
