Fun Ways To Use A Blindfold During Sex
A blindfold is a staple item of any bondage kit, and it’s a simple way to introduce some spicy fun into your love life. You can also just use a scarf, or any other suitable piece of soft clothing, but these may not stay in place as well as a specially designed BDSM blindfold.
Being blindfolded helps to heighten your other senses, such as touch, smell, and taste, so your contact with your partner will have that extra edge of intensity. It also turns the anticipation up to 11, as you are always guessing what is going to happen next.
There are so many creative ways you can use a blindfold to unlock a whole new dimension to your sex life. Before you dive in, it’s important to make sure that both partners are fully consensual and happy with the idea. Discuss any boundaries you do not want to cross, and what you generally do and don’t feel comfortable with.
Make sure that the room you are planning to have sex in is free of any trip hazards, sharp objects, and so on. You may even want to agree a safe word in advance, so that you or your partner can clearly stop an activity at any time.
Play with other senses
Being deprived of sight heightens the other senses, so this is a perfect opportunity to play with smell, touch and taste. Use flavoured lubes to rub on your partner’s erogenous zones, and stimulate them with your hand or a vibrator for some extra intense pleasure. Some people enjoy being tickled with a sensory toy such as a feather tickler.
You could introduce some temperature play, by rubbing ice cubes on their skin, or dripping some wax from a scented massage candle on them (don’t use a paraffin candle as this will be way to hot). Melted foods, such as chocolate or ice cream, are also good, as you can lick them off. Your partner is sure to be tingling with anticipation at what you will do next.
Try something new
If you have trouble letting go during sex, a blindfold can help to reduce inhibitions, because the blindfolded person can’t see your reactions! They may also feel less self conscious, as their mind is busy with anticipation and the novelty of the situation, rather than their own performance or appearance.
This is the perfect opportunity to experiment with something new, such as using a vibrating sex toy together. You could make the most of the situation with some role play, by taking the lead and (consensually) requesting that your partner do things for you. You could tease them with a guessing game by leaving long pauses between each touch.
Try feeding them different foods with a range of textures and flavours, so that they have to guess what they are. This helps to build up intimacy and trust with your partner, as well as being a very sensual experience.
