Good thing she was already blind...

Sensory deprivation play is just so delicious... especially if you play games like "What's in My Mouth?" with your lover. This soft leather blindfold has its good points, but for full visual deprivation, this simply doesn't cut it. If you want a true blindfold, look elsewhere - this one is an almost-blindfold.

Pros:

Use

Blindfolds are fabulous for heightening non-visual sensations. Since sight dominates our senses, removing vision from the equation sharpens other senses, which is great for just about any sex play - especially those focusing on taste, texture, sound, and the element of surprise. Beginners and advanced users alike can access and enjoy a simple blindfold like this one, and the uses in play can be as wide ranging as your imagination & creativity allow.

    • Couples
    • Sensory play

Design / Craftsmanship / Material / Size / Fit

I've got some definite issues with this particular design, but first, two compliments (with constructive criticism):
1. The double straps in the back help the blindfold stay in place well, and are a good design choice.
(They are non-adjustable, but slightly stretchy and seemed to fit our average-sized heads well; however if the wearer is lying down and moving their head against a pillow, the straps will slip and the blindfold will move out of place)
2. The blindfold is made of deliciously soft leather (thanks, Spartacus - well done!) that feels good to wear.
Now for the big issue: You can still see out from underneath if you try. Not so great. The indentation for the nose is too shallow; unless you have a remarkably flat bridge, your nose will push the blindfold out from your cheeks and leave a space for light to get in. Not only does it put a somewhat uncomfortable pressure on the bridge of the nose, but it pretty much defeats the purpose of being blindfolded (unless you have excellent self-restraint and keep your eyes closed the whole time anyway).
I will say, though, that if you have a legally blind play partner (as I do) who must remove their glasses before putting on a blindfold, the overall effect is pretty much the same as having a blindfold that fits.
For those of us who aren't blind - I recommend finding a blindfold with a steeper nose indentation.

Performance

Despite the big flaw in design, my partner and I had a lot of fun with this blindfold (... partially because she's kind of blind). The mere presence of the blindfold allowed her to give over to the non-visual sensations in a way that closing her eyes simply wouldn't have done. We ended up playing a great game of "What's in my Mouth?" which quickly turned to "What's Touching Me?", and had a really fun and sexy time playing with taste and texture. It stayed in place for the most part; though I had to readjust the blindfold once or twice within an hour, as the straps moved when she moved her head against the pillow. We did have fun with it, but at one point she turned to me and said, "So you're going to give this a big fat thumbs down, right?" There are enough flaws to it that I wouldn't highly recommend it, though for our purposes it performed fairly well.
    • Does not work well
    • Easy to put on / use
Follow-up commentary
I don't even take this one out of the toy box anymore - it might be different if I were a leather-lover, but as is, I honestly prefer using a standard sleep mask one might get from a department store.

    Ack seems to be more misses than hits! Still a good blindfold is so hard to find sometimes it's the cheap ones that you'd never seriously consider that fit the best...sometimes it's the way too expensive ones. Thanks for the review!

    Thanks for reviewing. Finding the perfect blindfold certainly is a lot harder than it should be.
