The Sexy Science Behind Blindfolds
It's no secret that wearing a blindfold in the bedroom is hot. It puts your partner in control and adds an element of surprise to foreplay. Why is this little piece of black fabric so tantalizing? Blindfolds are a turn-on thanks to the science of our sexiest organ: the brain.
Our brains are constantly processing visual information. When your partner slides a blindfold over your eyes, the part of your brain that processes images is shut down. As the brain rewires itself to maximize any unused processing power, your remaining senses take a front seat to orient the body to its surroundings. In sex speak, this means everything you taste, smell, hear, or touch is amplified once the lights go out. If the science isn't enough to convince you, the endless sexy scenarios will. When your partner slides an ice cube across your skin, or gives you a massage with scented oil, try wearing a blindfold. Your favorite parts of foreplay will come to life as millions of receptors on your skin ignite with every touch.
Cutting the lights is the equivalent of tickling your brain's erogenous zones. Dopamine, a neurotransmitter that floods the brain with pleasure, is released as you anticipate your partner's next move. Without the ability to see, the brain is constantly trying to predict where you'll be touched next. The anticipation of touch mixed with all those feel-good chemicals primes your body for intensified sensation. If you're looking for a quick fix to turn up the heat in the sack, slip on a blindfold and tap into your brain's primal instincts for pleasure.

Congrats to Mistress Kay of My Kinky World for winning best BDSM in our Valentine's Fantasy Contest. Her three-way poolside pegging fantasy definitely left us hot and bothered!
Clang! I pull the name badge off from around my neck and drop it unceremoniously onto the glass-topped table next to my chair. Enjoying the weekend at a kink conference with two of my play partners had been a fantastic idea. Both my submissives, we had enjoyed some spanking and orgasm torture scenes the night before, and we were looking forward to today's activities of relaxation. The room's humidity told me that something besides the leather dress I was wearing might have been more conducive to relaxation, though.
This afternoon, the three of us are enjoying one of the amazing features of this conference: a hotel swimming pool with no clothes required and no rules in place. Various people are strewn throughout the deep water including a couple that's having sex on one of the sides of the pool. A bit adverse to messing up our make-up and hair so early in the day, my female submissive and I sit, clothed, in the poolside chairs while we watch my male submissive swim leisurely around the pool without a strip of clothing on his body.
Congrats to Cheyenne, who packed an amazing amount of Sportsheets products in her sexy entry to our Valentine's Fantasy Contest. Not surprisingly, she won the "Best Use of sex toys award. Enjoy!
My fantasy starts out at home. I'm getting ready to take a shower and I think I heard something in the other room. I go to check it out but nothing is there.
I take my clothes off and jump in the shower. I reach for my Vibrating Mesh Sponge to pleasure myself. I put my foot on my Single Locking Suction Foot Rest, then I begin to feel the power of my sponge. Just as I'm about to shower all over the shower I hear someone again in the other room. Babe is that you? I call out but no one answers. Now I'm starting to get nervous! All my senses are high. I hurry and finish my shower so I can find out what's going on.
Congrats to Elena, winner of the most romantic entry in our Valentine's Fantasy Contest!
Elena was just getting home… thinking to herself – Oh, another Valentine’s Day! Henry probably forgot… being so busy with getting his car detailed and buffed. Hmpt! I wouldn’t mind by buffed myself!
She entered her home and it was dark… She thought: Yep, Henry forgot about our dinner tonight… oh well! Then she stopped – Wait… what was that noise? Did someone break into the house… no… that’s music. Burglers don’t usually put on romantic music!
