Increasing Sexual Tension: Tips For Using Blindfolds

Even if your sex life seems perfect, sometimes you should bring something new into the bedroom. There is nothing wrong with whatever you are doing right now, but you can’t always do the same things, especially if you are in a long term relationship. Using blindfolds is a great idea if you want to spice up your sex life a bit. Not only that you bring something new to you sexy game, but you get to magnify the sexual tension between the two of you. Having one of you senses inactive makes the other senses more aware and the experience unforgettable.

Also, this is a great idea for shy people. The fact that your partner is unable to see might make you more comfortable with letting out the wildness you keep inside and explore your companion’s body. At the same time, you are building the sexy anticipation for the other blinded one. Your partner will be curious about what you are going to do next and surprised when you are going to do it! How can you not feel extremely aroused?

Do You Trust Each Other…Blindly?

Just like many sexual activities, using blindfolds can be done only if both people really trust each other. Don’t get me wrong, this is not dangerous, but some people might find not seeing a terrifying thing, especially if they don’t have faith in their partners.

The best way to bring this kinky play to your bedroom is to talk about it first. You don’t have to discuss all the details, like when or where to do it because spontaneity is important. Just make sure you are both on the same page.

You Can Plan or Be Spontaneous

As I said, spontaneity is always important for people’s relationships and sexual life. Planning the whole thing might not be such a good idea since surprising your partner is what you are really looking for. “On Sunday we are using blindfolds” is not as interesting as bringing them into the game unplanned.

Also, don’t worry about buying a special blindfold. You can use anything you want, as long as it’s soft and clean. The kitchen towel is not a good idea, but playing with one of your silky ties or her scarves sounds perfect.

Take a Bite, It’s Delicious!

The sexy game can begin in the kitchen or living room and since you are stepping outside your love-making routine, why not take everything further and bring some food out? If food foreplay is not something you have too much experience with, you have to keep in mind that choosing the right elements is crucial.

While vanilla ice cream, oysters, chocolate or strawberries are great options, chilli or cabbage rolls are not very aphrodisiac. So be careful what you bring out of the fridge! You want your game to be sexy, not hilarious or worse, gross!

Also, since your partner is not able to see, everything is about sensations. So, in case you’re out of ice cream to make sure you have ice cubes to play with them in your companion’s body! The small ice cube will have a huge impact!

After you finish your food play, you can clean your partner who’s still having the blindfold on. Be creative and use your fingers and tongue to lick that ice cream off his body. Once you did that you can move to the bedroom!

Trust Me. You Need Me to Knead You

Before jumping on your blinded partner, you can play a bit more. You know what they say: Tease before you please! And the best way to offer pleasure to your companion without having sex yet, is a sexy massage.

As far as I know, nobody can say no to a Nuru massage or a soapy bath massage. And imagine these with a blindfold, remembering how having your eyes covered intensifies your other senses?

So, no matter what kind of massage you choose, don’t forget to use products that smell amazing. Personally, I’d go with coconut or vanilla scented oils. But this is a personal choice. You can use anything your partner fancies.

Bring a Little Kink into the blindfolds Game

Everybody knows that blindfolds are actually considered BDSM toys. I didn’t mention this from the beginning because they can be used like a fantastic way to get close to each other. It is obvious that not being able to see makes you trust your partner and feel every touch, kiss or lick without concentrating on anything visual.

But, you can also have some light bondage play if you are into it. Of course, you can go further and combine blindfolds with other sex toys but that is a completely different story.

Whether you use blindfolds as the only toy or you bring other kinky things to the game, is your choice. But if you talk only about covering the eyes you shouldn’t bring something else, especially if it’s a big deal. For example, you can’t blindfold a man and then surprise him with a strap on, can you?

And since we are talking about men specifically, there is something you should know. Men rely more on visual aspects of the sexual activity. This is why a blindfold can diminish his excitement while having the opposite effect on women.

The positive aspect is that when covering their men’s eyes, many women feel no inhibitions so they can have a fantastic performance. Therefore, the men’s arousal level increases, right?

So, are you ready to bring something new to your sex play? What do you have in mind? Do you have experience using a blindfold and you want to share it? In each case, we are eager to hear what you have to say! So, don’t be shy and let us know by commenting below!
