I’ve mentioned blindfolds a few times already. Blindfolds can be brought into pretty much all types of play. They heighten the other senses, create suspense, and help to create that erotic atmosphere. the also don’t have to be expensive.
Ideas for blindfolds:
- A scarf
- A sleep mask
- Utilise your partners clothing by pulling it over their head
- A tie
- A traditional blindfold (still fairly cheap to buy)
- Luxury material
I’m sure you can come up with many more ideas. Personally I use a purposely brought blindfold, its red and black to tie in with the erotic/sensual atmosphere. Mine also feels silky on the inside to heighten senses and give that added feeling of luxury.
Blindfold can be used in foreplay, impact play, electro-play, used with restraint, during teasing, as well as during sex.
Ensure that you check on the position of the blindfold, if it slips during play you need to make sure that it can be removed to prevent harm. Also never leave a blindfolded partner/sub unattended. This is the same as with restraints, I will cover this in more depth in another post. Communicate with your partner and ensure they are ok with what you are doing whilst blindfolded, Light sensation type play is normally ok, but it is particularly important to use safe words when involving impact play or painful stimuli.
