Blindfolds possess unique fetishistic potential. They are particularly potent when used to experiment with the sensory deprivation of a pliable submissive. There is a key fetish in which the exploitation of sense pleasures is especially important. It is termed Amaurophilia and it refers almost always to a woman being blindfolded.
For Amaurophiliacs having sex with a compliant woman who puts on a blindfold during the act itself represents the summit of their particular fantasy. The fetish works its magic because the simple fact of a lover’s visual restriction increases his own sense of power.
The ways in which vision can be slowly, but safely, restricted are many and varied. They can range from scarves to even something from your underwear drawer; the longer it takes to manufacture a DIY blindfold the better. The male fetishist maintains strict visual-contact with his subject while she works on covering her eyes.

Blindfolds are a great way to start experimenting with BDSM and you can use almost anything to make one. When you’re wearing it you can be really lazy and stay still while your partner does all the hard work .Then, if you want, you can change places and keep all the control for yourself; it’s up to you.
When I’m blindfolded I can hear everything, really clearly, and the TV in the background seems so much louder. It’s feeling vulnerable that really works on me, though. I can stand there and know that someone else has the complete freedom to look me over without me realising.
If I didn’t know that you were standing nearby and you just breathed on me, on my neck especially, I would be scooped out by the rawness of the moment and how charged up it would make me. My body might be slow and heavy but my mind would be totally alert.
