During sex play, blindfolds can be used to heighten a partner’s senses. They’re frequently used in light bonding situations. By forcing one partner to rely on their other senses when their vision is taken away, sex takes on a new dimension. Furthermore, the partner who is blindfolded is submitting to the partner who is not blindfolded, which many people find enticing. If a male partner is prone to orgasm, a blindfold can help to alleviate the problem by removing visual stimulation, which many men find particularly exciting. Because partners are forced to rely on verbal or tactile cues rather than visual cues, blindfolded sex play can result in better, more varied communication.
