Tucked away in the corner of one of our rooms is a purple suitcase, not a big one but one of the small cabin sized ones. Looks can be deceiving because it contains no clothes, just lots of goodies we’ve picked up over the years.
It hides our magic wand away and it hides lots of hitty things, floggers, a mini cricket bat, nipple clamps etc. anything my partner can lay his hands on to tease and torture me really. Alongside all of those there are several blindfolds, nothing fancy, just the ones you get handed out in flight packs along with those tiny toothbrushes.
And yet they never get used. Why? Well I think I have the wrong shaped face for blindfolds. If he pushes them up high enough so I don’t see over the top I still manage to spy what he’s up to by peering down along my nose. Likewise if he pushes it down so I can’t see down my nose I can see what going on above my head. Even the ones with a fur lining don’t have a better coverage and invariably I get poked in the eye with a bit of fluff!
Not only that but if I get an itchy nose, which is inevitable if my hands are tied out of reach, a couple of little twitches and the blindfold has wiggled its way up, or down, my face.
Having my sight taken away always scares me, not enough too put a stop to using blindfolds, it’s something I like to push through. It heightens all my other senses, I listen hard to see where in the room my partner is, what it is he may’ve picked up to use. What we really need is a blindfold that actually covers my eyes properly.
All this talk of blindfolds has made me remember something. Last year during Eroticon I had a conversation with my partner *looks to see if he’s listening* about blindfolding me and getting me to describe different sensations. I mean really describe them using all my senses, other than sight obviously, it may just help me improve and give me some more confidence in my writing by making me think in different ways.
So there we go, blindfolds may have their uses but I wouldn’t class them as a kink of mine, or at least, not until we can find one to fit my face.
