Blindfolds

Blindfolds possess unique fetishistic potential. They are particularly potent when used to experiment with the sensory deprivation of a pliable submissive within a BDSM context. There is a key fetish connected to the use of blindfolds in which the exploitation of sense pleasures is especially important. It is termed Amaurophilia and it refers almost always to the blindfolding of a woman.

For Amaurophiliacs, having sex with a compliant woman who is already wearing a blindfold or who puts one on during the act itself represents the summit of their particular fantasy. This may also include the preference for having sex in complete darkness which only increases tactile sensations and sensitivity. Wearing a blindfold increases the other lover’s sense of power. Eye-contact can be avoided completely, contrary to normal social protocols, which enables the seeing lover to take more liberties with his or her need for voyeuristic satisfaction. The thrill for the wearer of the blindfold rests in them knowing that they don’t have to do anything themselves.

The ways in which vision can be slowly, but safely, restricted are many and varied. They can range from scarves to items from an 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.

    Venus O’Hara’s Cover Shots

    I used to love going to the nearest kiosk to buy Spanish GQ so that I could see my monthly column in print. It was even more of a thrill when I had an article in the pages of Primera Linea. Nothing quite prepared me for seeing a rack of magazines wit […]

    I’m writing this text in little pieces. It is easier to add to it in between doing bits of housework. The housework is a way to distract myself so I do not keep thinking about tonight. I am excited but it is still early and there are hours to g […]

    English for Perverts Cover Shoot (Blindfold)

    The publishers of English For Perverts were waiting for me. I was under pressure to deliver a really powerful image of myself wearing a blindfold. It was necessary to try a second photo-session to find the killer shot because the results of the first […]
