People are known to close their eyes as they enjoy something. Whether it’s French kissing or those sweet deep strokes that touch your core, closing your eyes always makes it feel all the better. However, just closing your eyes means that you get to watch whenever you feel like it. Sensory stimulation requires that one or more senses are temporarily blocked for the required period of time. Blindfolds are a great accessory for sensory stimulation and incorporating this simple technique in your sex life will make your playtime even hotter than it currently is. If you need more convincing, here are five reasons why blindfolds are so powerful;
Once your partner is blindfolded, all the power is in your hands. They cannot see what is happening and it is your chance to get them under your spell one touch at a time, getting them moaning and screaming and generally losing their mind as you arouse them endlessly. The court is all yours and you get to take the opportunity to unleash all the tricks that you had stored up. Power can be a very powerful aphrodisiac, making you get engulfed by new found confidence that has you doing some things you wouldn’t do but have always dreamt of trying out.
2. Enhanced sensitivity
Blindfolds take away the visual senses, leaving the body to cope with the remaining four senses. For this reason, the sensitivity of the other senses is immediately heightened to compensate for the loss of one. Manipulate this sensitivity by incorporating various forms of sensory play that will have your partner screaming in delight. With the sense of touch heightened, trail their body with kisses and touches, even incorporating ticklers if you want to raise the stakes. Temperature play will also be more effective as their skin is on high alert, exaggerating every stimulus and having some explosive pleasure sensations taking over their body.
3. Surprise Factor
With every touch and stroke, your partner gets more and more aroused and starts to anticipate the next touch or move. With their sight out of the loop, take the chance to mix it up in totally unexpected ways. Keep your touches and play totally random, making them gasp with every touch as the sensations are generated from different places every time. Adding vibrating toys in the mix will be sure to blow their mind and even have them coming down with an explosive orgasm. Keeping the body on high alert during the whole play is guaranteed to produce a phenomenal ending.
4. Reduced Inhibitions
Getting your partner to do things to you is always great but sometimes changing up the scene makes every second even more worthwhile. If you have ever harbored fantasies of watching your partner touching themselves or having them watch you then you know it is easier said than done. Being completely exposed is something you can never do without some form of confidence boost. The blindfold is a great boost as it prevents you from seeing your partner, making it easier to imagine that you are alone. This therefore opens you right up and you get to indulge your fantasies. There are more sexual dreams that have you blushing that can be remedied just by making sure your eyes are in the dark. Rather than resorting to switching off the lights, blindfold your partner and immediately witness as their confidence perks right up.
5. Enhanced Sexual Experience
Blindfolds add a new adventurous element to your sex life, making each session different from the last. With blindfolds, you get to indulge your wildest fantasies as you embrace yourselves as you are. With the heightened senses, your play gets even better and penetrative sex feels more intense and you can incorporate other toys and accessories to ensure that boredom never sets in.
It doesn’t matter whether you are a pro or a beginner, blindfolds are easy to use and since they have a high versatility, can also be used in literally any scene. However, always make sure that you never leave your partner’s side if they are blindfolded and set in risky positions such as restraints or perched on a high surface.
