EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT BDSM MASKS

Limiting a person’s view is a part that occurs in many BDSM scenes. In most cases this is done using a BDSM mask. However, many types, sizes and materials are available. Read all you need to know about BDSM masks here!

What can you do with a BDSM mask?

Exercise control and relinquish it

One of the main functions of a BDSM mask is to gain control over the person whose vision is limited. In a Dom-sub relation, a Dom can put the sub on a mask, so that the view of the sub is limited. A submissive must then fully trust the Dominant.

Stimulate the senses

In addition to the control that is exercised on the sub, senses can be stimulated additionally. Because the view is hidden, other senses are strengthened. This way, the focus can be placed even more on other sensations. This is especially an important aspect in SM, where tormenting or feeling pain plays a prominent role.

Different types of BDSM masks

BDSM masks are available in different shapes and sizes. Depending on the goal of the game, a suitable mask can be chosen.

Eye masks

An eye mask only covers the eyes, so that only vision is limited. An eye mask is very suitable for novice BDSM’ers. Even for couples who want to experiment a bit more with kinky sex, without wanting to study BDSM too much, an eye mask can be used perfectly. Because the entire face is not covered, the Dom is not completely relinquished.

Bondage hoods

These are masks that are completely pulled over the head and appear in different variations. There are hoods where openings are made for the eyes, nose, mouth and ears, but also hoods where these openings are (partly) closed. Depending on the type of hoods, one or more senses can be taken from the sub. They are therefore also called (sensory) deprivation hoods.

Breath Play

BDSM hoods where the opening to the mouth and / or nose is closed, are very suitable for use during Breath Play. This game limits the oxygen supply to the sub to increase erotic pleasure. Because the brain of the sub receives less oxygen for a short time, substances are released which makes the sub feel euphoric. Temporarily reduced oxygen can also result in a particularly intense orgasm.

By means of a BDSM hood in which the mouth and nose are closed, the power is in the hands of the Dom to determine the oxygen supply.

Animal Play

Animal masks are also available, which are ideal for role-playing, such as at Animal Play. The sub often dresses and behaves like an animal, which the Dom is in charge of. This kind of game is characterized by a clear balance of power, punishment and punishment and humiliation.

The maintenance of a BDSM mask

  • A mask should never be cleaned in the washing machine. Soap can remain in the material, which may irritate the eyes with subsequent use. It is best to air the mask dry for some time after the game.
  • A leather mask is best cleaned with a microfibre cloth.
  • Always remove body fluids such as semen, saliva, urine and blood as soon as possible after use. This prevents it from pulling into the mask.
