Have you always wondered how to do blindfold sex? We got you! Trying something new can be a bit frightening, but it doesn't need to be - especially not a blindfold during sex! Being blindfolded in bed is one of the easiest ways to explore new sensations. Not only are the risks very slim as long as you safely stay on the bed (the biggest risk is that you might irritate a contact lens if the blindfold is too tight!), but removing your vision instantly heightens all of your other senses. You know, like how sensitive your skin is to the touch of your partner's lips or your favorite butt plug. Blindfold sex can be really hot!
Choosing the best blindfold for sex is actually pretty simple. Again, it'll be one of the easiest purchases you make! Just select your favorite blind fold during sex option, and you're set to go! Most noticeably, you'll need to choose between a blindfold with a nose cut-out or a blindfold without a nose cut-out. This is entirely personal preference. A blindfold with a nose cut-out will reduce light leaking in from around the nose, but some people find that the sex blindfolds without a nose cut-out apply less pressure to their eyes.
(If you or your partner wear contact lenses in your eyes and don't want to remove them during blindfold wear, we recommend a tie-on sex blindfold. This allows you to incrementally adjust the tightness of the blindfold on the eyes. The lack of blinking under a tight blindfold can increase contact lens irritation whereas a looser blindfold can still block light while allowing lubrication of your lenses.)
Can both partners be blindfolded during sex? Yes! In fact, we definitely recommend it! It may not be a way you've thought about playing, but removing both partner's sense of sight means both of you have to focus on the non-visual cues of sex. We highly recommend playing in the center of the bed and taking all of your movements slowly (no one wants to be poked in their ear by accident!). Consider this a sensual experiment and a whole new way to experience your lover's familiar body!
