"KEEP THEM FUCKING CLOSED" - BLINDFOLDS, HOODS AND OTHER SENSORY DEPRIVATION

Shut your eyes, and imagine yourself in a place far far away. Yeah, fucking right. I don’t know about you but I am not the sort of person who enjoys the hippie-dippie dreamy bullshit. HOWEVER.


Slap a blindfold on me, or reduce my vision using a gas mask and well fuck me sideways I’ll be quivering in a pool of goo quicker than you can blink. Inevitably when one of our senses are taken away, the rest of them are super heightened and it doesn’t take a bright spark to figure out this also happens during play or sex.



What is sensory deprivation?


Sensory deprivation isn’t just limited to eyesight. As stated above if you remove one or more of a persons senses, the others get super-fucking-heightened and just about any touch or sound or smell can trigger an overwhelming reactionary response.


In BDSM this is a popular tool Dominants can use with their submissives as it not only plays further in the power exchange but also can produce a sense of vulnerability or even allowing that person to focus more on themselves, what is around them and the sensations or emotions they are experiencing. For some people it can even be soothing.


What types of sensory deprivation are there?


So let’s start off with the basics…


Hearing - this obviously means that either the hearing is impaired, such as through the use of headphones possibly playing music or being spoken to through or being completely cut off. This is often done through the use of military style headsets.


Vision - someone’s sight can be altered by the use of masks, blindfolds and hoods or even through the use of gas masks which restrict the extent of vision. Some people use “blinders” similar to what is used on horses. This focuses the vision forwards and can take part of pony or pet play.


Taste - This is difficult to affect but it can be made more difficult by the use of gags, or feeding the submissive something particularly pungent such as lemons or vinegar.

Smell - I don’t know about you but I love the smell of Sir, and as we all know pheromones play a huge part in our arousal. To dampen this sense nose plugs similar to those that are used when swimming can be effective.


Touch - if you want to prevent someone being able to touch and feel and explore your body the best way is to use restraints. There is a myriad of different types of restraint such as ropes, handcuffs, straight-jackets etc. that you can use to your hearts desire.


Which of the senses do you enjoy using the most during your scenes, and which do you like to take control of in a partner? Let me know in the comments below.
