In The Dark, You Are Vulnerable

I love the Silk Whisper blindfold. It is clearly well-made with high quality materials and craftsmanship. It manages to block out most light and feels soft and sensual against your skin. It has a classy and elegant pattern that is embroidered into the silk. It is inconspicuous enough to pass as a sleep-aid yet beautiful enough to enlighten your senses with sensuality.

Use

The Silk Whisper by Leatherbeaten is an impeccably well-made blindfold for you to block out the sense of sight. Made of high-quality materials and craftsmanship, this is the perfect blindfold for a great price. The sensual pattern and feel of the silk is enough to send you into sensory overload. If you like the feel of passion, you will love the feel of the Silk Whisper. It is made with a silk outer layer with a fleece inner lining for a lovely and comfortable feeling against your eyes. This blindfold is great for partner play or to be used alone to enhance your other senses. This is a perfect blindfold for a beginner to a more advanced player.

Design / Craftsmanship / Material / Size / Fit

The blindfold is made of silk, cotton, and fleece. It is sewn together very sturdily and will last for quite a while if you use it properly. The silk is black and is embroidered with an oriental/dragon pattern in red thread. The part that touches your eyes is made of black fleece. I find it makes the blindfold really comfortable to wear, and it is not scratchy at all.

The Silk Whisper is made to fit smaller to medium-sized heads. It is secured on by a thick piece of sewing elastic, and it will stretch if you wear it often enough. It is designed really well in that it blocks out most light. If you happen to have a bump in your septum, it may not block out all light. I have a small bump, and it allows light to come through just at the sides of my nose. If I adjust it farther up than is normal, I can manage to get out most of the light.

At first, it was very tight to wear for longer periods of time, but I wore it to bed to block out my husband's reading light, and it worked well for that.

The blindfold is a good choice for anyone. It is great whether you want one for sleeping purposes or for a more intense experience during BDSM play.

Performance

This is one product that will last you a long time. I have used it to get to sleep for about 3 consecutive weeks, and it is still perfect for using during sensory deprivation play. The elastic gets a bit looser the more you wear it, but it will still fit small heads after stretched. My head is very small in circumference, and I find it fits well when you are playing roughly or more intimately.

I have only had to adjust it a few times during active play. During sleep hours when I wear this, I do have to adjust it more frequently due to moving around in my sleep.

It is really exciting to not know what your partner is going to do to you next. I happened to notice his smell more when I had this blindfold on. He smelled sweet and sensual and even more erotic was that he smelled like himself.
    • Comfortable during use
    • Easy to put on / use
    • Holds up to use well

Care and Maintenance

When it comes time to retire the blindfold, I put it away in my underwear drawer. If you don't want it to collect dust from the drawer, I suggest storing it in the baggy it came in.

To clean the Silk Whisper, hand wash in warm water with a mild detergent. It is not recommended to use hot water or throw it in with your regular wash as you will damage the silk. Dry it in a cool place away from direct sun and heat.
    • Easy to store
    • High maintenance

Packaging

The Silk Whisper came in a see-through plastic baggy which is not recyclable. It seems the company that makes this is based 2 hours away from where I live. I noticed this because it was sent to me in a President's Choice baggy, and I didn't think they had that in the States. That was before I read the tag which has the product name on it. There are no user instructions nor are there any care directions. I would have preferred care instructions at the very least.

I would say it's pretty discreet as you could say it's for blocking out the light to sleep. It doesn't say that it is for sexual purposes on the tag.
    • Good for storage
    • Minimal

Experience

So far, my experience with this blindfold has been a great one. I have used it both for sleeping, blocking out light, and blocking out my sense of sight during playtime. I did notice that the elastic that holds it on your head gets looser the more you wear it. I don't think this would be a problem as it is quite small to begin with. It gave me a slight headache the first time I wore it for more than 2 hours at a time. I would suggest wearing it for a little while to start and then increasing the increments of time as you become accustomed to the tightness. Overall, I am in love with this thing. I would highly recommend it to anyone as it will last a really long time.
