Why A Blindfold Works – Tips & Tricks
The first time I was blindfolded by a partner was an eye-opening experience. Well, not literally of course, but by taking away my sight, I had to ‘see’ with my other senses – sound, touch, taste and smell more fully and intensely. It made me experience a whole new range of exquisite sensations and feelings. Which then allowed me to have mind-blowing sex.
How can such a simple trick have such a dramatic effect? Well, besides your other senses being sharpened, there is an element of sexual anticipation. You just don’t know what to expect which can make a whisper or a simple touch -fingers brushing your inner thighs, for example- feel simply electric.
Also, a blindfold fires the imagination. Without any visual distraction, it is much easier to lose yourself in your sexual fantasies. Body shame or shyness? A blindfold makes you much less inhibited!
And last but not least, like Kim Bassinger in 9 ½ Weeks already proved: damn woman, you look seriously sexy with that blindfold on!

- Stimulate your sense of taste

Marlies Dekkers, the cult Dutch lingerie artist, launched her new book ‘Unlock your potential’ on February 27th in the Dream Hotel Downtown, New York City… And what a night it was!
Crowned Queen of Scotland at only nine months of age, proud Mary Stuart (1542- 1587) was off to a flying start.
