Blindfolds make for a wonderful addition to virtually any bondage scene. Slip one on your submissive to have him/her pay attention to every detail of their bondage. Tight rope will feel suffocating, cool metal will feel frozen and sharp finger nails will feel like razor blades. If the bondage session turns punitive, your submissive will probably find the anticipation of your next action worse than the action itself. On the other hand, if you’re willing to let your sub sit, even for a few minutes, it will seem like hours to him/her.
The Latex Blindfold
Our favorite blindfold is the plain latex blindfold. Because is is very thin, it makes you completely blind, proves to be very discrete, is comfortable to wear and will fit with nearly any other form of bondage headgear, be it a hood or a gag.
Although virtually no sex toy retailers distribute these types of blindfold, they are very easy to make and very inexpensive.
You will need the following items:
- A latex bathing cap: You will be able to find these for a fair price at any sports shop. You will want one that is black with no logo. If you’re on the hunt for a better price, ebay has many latex bathing caps for sale. The quality of the cheaper ones is dubious at best. We would recommend one along these lines.
- A pair of scissors.
In order to turn the bathing cap into a blindfold, all you have to do is cut off the top. This will turn the cap into a latex band which can be slipped over your submissive’s eyes. The taper on the bottom of most bathing caps will also help close the gap beneath the eyes and the way latex typically sticks to skin will make the blindfold nearly impossible to remove without hands.
The final result will look something like this:
It is important to note that the blindfold could slip down and obstruct breathing. Please take this into consideration when using this type of blindfold.
