How to Ease Customers Into Kinky Play With Blindfolds

What’s one of the easiest ways to turn a sexy encounter into a toe-curling scene to remember? The premise is simple: suppress one or more of someone’s senses and the others become enhanced. By manipulating touch, taste, smell, hearing or sight, couples can magnify the senses left intact.

Whether your clientele is into hardcore BDSM scenes or simply want to spice things up, blindfolds should be a recommended kinky tool. There are so many varieties and styles to choose from; they run the gamut from simple and utilitarian to all-in-one sensory deprivation tools. When assisting customers, don’t overlook the role that eye cover can play in their sexy adventures. Be prepared to illustrate the variety or functions and styles blindfolds come in. They are so versatile, they can be incorporated into almost any scenario.

Covering the eyes is simple but so incredibly sensual. It can instantly amp up the eroticism during a tryst for several reasons.

Sensory deprivation allows couples to disengage from typical sources of stress and anxiety. It’s a form of relaxation; like spas with sensory deprivation tanks, blindfolds in the bedroom block out external stimuli and enable couples to let go. Sensory deprivation is also well suited for those exploring dominant/ submissive power play. A blindfolded person must depend on their partner to navigate their surroundings. This sets the stage for one partner to give direction that the blindfolded person must follow, and can put one in the very vulnerable state of having to trust a partner completely. This emotional dependency fosters intimacy and can make couples feel more connected. For those into BDSM, getting into this kind of headspace is an ideal pathway to psychological play.

Exploring Blindfolds

For those new to sensory deprivation, it’s best to start off slowly. Only manipulate one sense to begin with. Since most of us are so dependent on sight, it’s the most natural and impactful place to start. There’s quite a variety available when it comes to simple blindfolds, mainly due to comfort factors. Basic styles provide ample coverage without hindering the nasal passages, and typically feature soft lining so it’s comfortable for newbies and for longer-term wear. Some blindfolds may irritate those who wear eye makeup, false eyelashes, or contact lenses. In these cases, suggest styles that don’t hug the eyelids tightly.

Getting the Most Out of Blindfolds

Once the blindfold is on, what comes next? Sensation play can complement and enhance the sensory deprivation experience. Sensation play involves rubbing a partner’s skin with hands or toys. It is most effective when you use opposing types of touch like hot and cold, soft and rough, or firm and gentle.

Removing or distorting other senses also amplifies sensation. Suggest to curious shoppers the use of a pair of earplugs or headphones to alter the sense of hearing. Bondage restraints can restrict touch. Including these things will further intensify every caress, spank, or kiss, and those ready for advanced play can level up their blindfold game and use more full-coverage headgear.

Advanced Gear

Full-face masks are considered intermediate- level gear. In addition to being an eye cover, such a mask completely wraps around the nose as well, which makes this piece of equipment perfect for those willing to take things a little further but who may be concerned about claustrophobia. This type of gear is usually reserved for BDSM enthusiasts. Many wearers say that, upon putting on this type of fullcoverage hood, everything changes for them psychologically. They go into a very submissive headspace, and some even start to flow into subspace. This piece may also make the wearer feel even more disoriented.

When you’re helping customers find new toys, remind them that blindfolds can enhance any type of sexy scene. They are also perfectly suited for curious novices and experienced kinksters alike, making them an ideal upsell. Eye cover also pairs well with so many other toys and accessories. A blindfold purchased with a dildo can be the basis for a kinky adventure, just as a sensory deprivation hood can make a dungeon scene larger than life. Blindfolds are versatile play tools that can be used in any way your imagination takes you.
