The Ultimate Guide to Bondage Masks (Beginner to Advanced BDSM)

The Ultimate Guide to Bondage Masks (Beginner to Advanced BDSM)

Bondage masks are a common BDSM item. Often made from leather, rubber, silicone, lycra or neoprene, masks will differ in terms of feel and fit. Each material and product varies in terms of what features it provides or denies the wearer, for example, a cotton mask may feel more comfortable than a more restrictive latex mask and a hood with no holes (for your eyes or mouth) provides more sensory deprivation than a hood with holes.

A bondage mask doesn’t have to be intimidating. Horror film culture has marred how we may view masks in general, often the crazy axe murderer uses a mask to conceal his identity. In this context the person wearing a mask will likely be giving or receiving intense pleasure but still may be wielding a sword of their own! A bondage mask can be something as simple as an eye mask, only slightly changing the way the wearer looks whilst being a great provider of sex appeal.

Here's everything you need to know about bondage masks.

Why would someone wear a bondage mask?

Often the term “unmasking” is to do with someone revealing their true self. We can think of bondage masks as a paradox, where instead someone masks them self to channel their inner sexual desires through a different persona. The most common use is to do with masks representing the role of the submissive (sub). Wearing a mask allows the user to let go of their everyday personality and become a new carnal character under the mask.

A mask allows the sub to let go of previous inhibitions holding back their fantasies, as with the mask on they are someone else. It also gives the dom visual recognition that the wearer is the submissive and aids them in identifying that the sub is the object that will uncover their wildest sexual fantasies. Objectification is okay in certain scenarios involving bondage masks. But this should never be taken overboard!

The mask doesn’t only have to be used by the sub, the person playing a dominant (dom) role can wear one too. The denial of facial expression can be a huge turn on. A straight faced dom represents relentless pleasure for the submissive who awaits in anticipation for their next command.

Accompanying roleplay is the bonus of heightened sensory stimulation. Like blindfolds which heighten stimulation through the denial of sight, masks have the option of denying the other four senses. This makes for the ultimate sensory experience; the wearer cannot help but enjoy the heightened pleasure they'll receive as it's close to the only feeling they will be receiving! Different masks will vary in what senses they can deny, while some will have the option through zippers. Adjust a mask to meet your preferred sensory cravings, or to whatever your dom allows!

What are the different types of BDSM masks?

Below are six different types of bondage masks you can get, each type of mask suggests a certain level of comfortability. This is to do with how comfortable one may physically feel with tighter fitting masks with more sensory denial but also reflects how comfortable one is with roleplaying a submissive or dominant persona.

1. Bondage Eye Masks

For any beginners who want to easily slip into a more sexual personality but aren't quite ready to leave their day-to-day disguise. This bondage eye masks come in an array of colours and are a great entry-level option.

2. Blindfolds

Blindfolds are a great place to start for bondage exploration and unlike some other bondage items, they’re a lot less intimidating. They’re a comfortable way to introduce bondage into a relationship as well as being literally comfortable! Usually made of soft adjustable material.

Another awesome feature of blindfolds is their ability to boost sexual confidence! Constantly during sex, we are sending feedback to each other saying, "hey that feels good!" But sometimes during intense passion we may feel embarrassed about the facial expressions we make, and that natural communication might become moderated.

With a blindfold the worries of such expressions being seen are nullified and the non-wearer can put all their unobstructed energy into pleasuring their partner. The wearer on the other hand can lay back, relax and enjoy the heightened sensual pleasure. They’re easy to use! Compared to other bondage items which may take a bit more preparation time. Blindfolds are as easy as putting on a pair of sunglasses.

Finally, they’re not going to break the bank; the size of blindfolds often reflects their price. More pricey blindfolds will contain higher quality material or a certain cosmetic aesthetic. If you’d like, use a cloth or tie at home as a substitute first, to check if you’re into it.

Blindfolds differ in terms of material, design and size. No matter the variation, if the wearer is blacked-out, sensual pleasure will be enhanced. Some blindfolds feature beautiful designs that dazzle in the darkness. These designs can be the perfect complement to your favourite set of lingerie and will always be a delightful touch to your birthday suit!

3. Masquerade Masks

Masquerade parties became popular during in the 17th and 18th century. Often being used to celebrate marriages or other prominent events they were... I'm just joking, let’s get down to bondage!

Masquerade bondage masks are sought after because of the artistic difference they provide compared to other bondage items. These bondage masks mix the beauty of history with sensory play to create a promiscuous pageant in your very own room. These masks assist in bondage play in more ways than you may think. Seeing your partner in a masquerade inspired bondage mask shrouds them in erogenous elegance. Bondage masks can be used simply as a visual stimulant like you would with any accessory.

Sometimes hiding the identity of your partner otherwise known as depersonalisation is the source of pleasure for many. Usually associated with dom and sub play with the use of fetish hoods, masquerade bondage masks are a lighter and more luxurious take on depersonalisation and sensory play in general.

Hoods can be a big step in bondage masks. They are transformative in terms of look and are great at turning one into a sexy slave!

Tips for using bondage masks

As with any bondage products, make sure you're using them with someone you trust!

It's advised that beginners should start out with less confining masks to begin with. Eye masks or less impaired hoods still allow partners to see each other and are important in keeping communication open during introductory stages. Unless it's really what you’re lusting for, wait until you and your partners sexual trust is well established before moving on to the harder stuff.

Communication is just as important for more experienced users! It's vital to distinguish between when your partner is roleplaying pleasurable discomfort or experiencing actual discomfort.

Be sure to identify a safe word with your partner to quickly put a stop to any displeasure!
