Blindfolds just might just be the sexiest thing you can bring into your bedroom. Whether you’re looking to spice up your sex routine or create deeper trust and intimacy, blindfold sex might just be your answer.
1. Blindfold Sex Spices Things Up
Having sex with a blindfold on is kinky—but not so kinky you couldn’t tell your friends. Blindfolds are hardly the gateway to hard-core S&M action, but they’re not exactly standard fare in your bedside drawer, either. If you’re looking to spice up your sex life without getting too crazy, a blindfold might just be the baby step you need.
2. Not Being Able to See Can Reduce Inhibitions
Worried about extra-intense bedroom faces? With a blindfold on, you won’t care. Forget about worrying about your “O” face—when you can’t lock eyes with your lover, you’re less likely to wonder how you look. And when you’re not concerned over your Cirque du Soleil-like face contortions, you can really let go, which can lead to a stronger orgasm.
3. Shutting Down One Sense Intensifies Others
A simple touch—his fingers brushing your thighs, for example—goes from standard to electric in two seconds flat when you can’t see it’s coming. Without your vision as a crutch, you’ll focus more on his breathless moans, the flavor of his ChapStick, and the scent of the aromatherapy candle you lit before you tied on his necktie. When you can’t see anything, all the sensations you feel, the scents you smell and tastes you encounter will become so much more intense.
