If you’re interested in the wonderful world of blindfolds and all the sense heightening pleasure they have to offer, you’ve come to the right place!

Introducing blindfolds to your relationship can spice up your sex life and is a great place to start if you want to experiment with a little BDSM and bondage.

So, if you think you’re ready to come over to the dark side, this comprehensive guide contains all the information you need to get started!

Reasons You Should Try Blindfolds

Reasons You Should Try Blindfolds

Don’t see what all the fuss is about when it comes to blindfolds? Not someone who likes to be kept in the dark? Well, this particular type of eyewear promises you a blinding time and here are 5 UberKinky reasons why;

Blindfolds - The Look

Keep an eye out for sexy submission and beautiful bondage...

Looking for something to add a little beauty to your bedroom antics? Well, you’d have to be walking around with your eyes closed not to notice how incredibly sexy blindfolds are. The epitome of sensual desire, wearing one creates a beautiful bondage look that is unrivalled by anything else. Additionally, that look of helplessness and submission can be a real turn on. Deviantly decorative, things will really be looking good when you add a blindfold to your play!

Blindfolds - Heightened Senses

Get a really good feeling about blindfolds...

Starting to sense you might like playing with blindfolds? Well, incorporating a blindfold into your play eliminates one sense, thereby heightening all others. Combine this with amazing anticipation, and the intensity delivered surpasses anything else you have ever experienced. Every single touch, stroke, kiss and lick is marvellously magnified and will have you on the climactic brink within seconds, trembling with excitement . Do you hear what we’re saying?

Blindfolds - Submissive Satisfaction

Don’t give up on superior satisfaction...

Don’t give up; a blindfold promises to help you achieve superior satisfaction! Not only does it enable the wearer to slip easily into a submissive role, it ensures their playmate automatically takes a domineering part. It therefore incorporates the dominant submissive element of power exchange role playing, without the intense sensations of heavier BDSM. Not having any say in what will happen and not knowing what’s to come is an incredible thrill. There’s really is no substitute for it!

Blindfolds - Emotional Connection

Get the lowdown on the missing link in your sex play...

The missing link from your sex play! Wearing a blindfold is a form of power exchange and, as such, requires a great deal of trust. Giving up control shows that you have trust in your partner and them taking control shows that this trust is well placed. Watching each other in these different roles will strengthen your connection and make your relationship even better. You certainly won’t be feeling down about it!

Blindfolds - Complete Confidence

Have faith; you’ll be transformed into an UberKinkster...

It’s all about the confidence! A blindfold makes the wearer feel less inhibited, so they are more confident to try new things. This works both ways; the person not wearing the blindfold will be much more confident too, knowing that every single unflattering expression will not be witnessed. Satisfaction is no longer in the bottoms’ hands, so they can simply relax and be confident in themselves. Reduce performance pressure and transform into an UberKinkster. We’re confident you’ll enjoy it!


Safety First!

Blindfolds come in a variety of different styles and materials, so it’s important you get one that’s right for everyone involved. If you’re a naughty newbie when it comes to kinky activities, you might want to start with a sexy, soft satin piece. However, if you’re in to BDSM, then a muzzled bondage hood might float your boat; but ultimately, safety and assurance for the wearer is the most important thing to ensure total gratification for both of you. It’s important that the Top is sensitive to signs of stress or discomfort of the wearer. For those with a tendency to get claustrophobic, wearing a blindfold can be a little unnerving, so total trust is essential. It is vital that you agree on a safe word beforehand, so that the blindfold can be removed instantly if required. In addition, it’s important to discuss boundaries and limits before you get started. Introducing hot wax out of the blue when your partner is completely in the dark probably won’t go down too well. Anything new, be it toys, temperature teasing, a whip or anything else should be agreed beforehand!

Before wearing a blindfold ensure the room you’re in is free of obstacles, a stubbed toe is an instant mood killer for both parties and when you come to remove your blindfold make sure the lights are dimmed – your corneas will be grateful!



  • Choose a blindfold that feels comfortable
  • Ensure the blindfold is tied in a way that’s secure but easy to remove quickly if needed
  • Agree upon a safe word in case the wearer becomes overwhelmed or uncomfortable for any reason
  • Start gentle. A leather blindfold featuring a ball gag and harness isn’t ideal for beginners!


  • Tie the blindfold too tight, it needs to be comfortable for the wearer to enjoy the experience
  • Go walk about whilst wearing your blindfold
  • Use when intoxicated as you could get disorientated and become nauseous
  • Do anything that hasn’t been agreed in advance

Types of Blindfolds

The type of blindfold you use depends on the mood you’re after in the bedroom…or play room! If you want something sensual and gentle to start off with, a satin or fur blindfold can add the perfect amount of sensuality whilst keeping things light-hearted and intimate. For the kinksters out there, you may want to try a leather blindfold with a belted buckle fastener or push the boundaries with a fetish hood with just a mouth hole for the wearer. Every type of blindfold offers a different level of power play and the choice is yours how much power is given…or taken away!
