The Shhh blindfold by Bijoux Indiscrets is a simple, subtle, satin blindfold. Black, with the words, "Shhhhhh!" or "Ooooh!" written on it (depending on what side you've got facing outwards), this is a great intro toy to those looking to experiment with sensual or sensory play.

It's made of 7 feet of black satin, with a small portion gathered in the center where it's meant to be placed over the eyes. When I received mine, there was a long piece of thread sticking out from over the nose piece; that was easily removed with a pair of scissors and has not affected the wearability or quality of the toy--I only note it here because of the fact that, even when I pulled on an apparently broken thread, the toy lost no integrity. That shows quality workmanship.

It is long enough to be be incredibly versatile; you can utilize it in many different ways. First, it can be tied traditionally, with knots in the back and the rest of the blindfold hanging down. It can also be tied traditionally and then looped around so that it covers the eyes again, and then follows around to the back to be knotted there--this makes the blindfold incredibly secure, and if you're concerned that you or your partner will be able to see through the blindfold, with three layers of fabric to get through, a visual will be unlikely at best! The third option is to tie the blindfold traditionally and then use the remainder to bind your partner's hands; I was able to have the blindfold tendrils wrapped around both wrists and then tied securely around a bedpost. The only caution I'd recommend with this one is that if the tied-down partner struggles you may run the risk of ripping just because of the nature of the fabric, so if you're going to tie them up it should be with the caution that they should struggle gently.

Even when I had this mask tied traditionally, I was unable to see through it, and there was no gap where I could see light or people moving around me. If you have problems with vision not being completely blocked, though, you could tie it around the eyes twice to make it more secure.

The packaging of this toy is beautiful--a small, discreet box that would be great for gifting; it has no overtly sexual connotations about it and could just as easily be a sleep mask as a blindfold.

The toy is satin, though I'm unsure as to whether or not it's silk or polyester satin, so your best best for washing would be to handwash in tepid water and line dry. Even after being tied, there is no real wrinkle to the toy, though if you were a stickler you could probably iron it--on low heat, very gently, taking care not to singe it.

I found that the red writing ("Ooooh") has already started to crack, like the beginning stages of when screen-printed t-shirts peel, while the white/silver writing ("Shhhhh") appears to be fine. This might be due to that particular side of the blindfold being folded more or might be due to the ink. Either way, it's not noticeable from a distance and can only be seen from up close.

It's a very sensual blindfold that would be perfect for those on the fence about wearing a light deprivation mask; the soft material makes playtime sexy and sensual.
