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!

- Explore your newly heightened sense of touch
You can use your hands of course, but ask your partner to experiment with some unexpected materials, such as feathers and bits of velvet, silk and linen. If you really take your time, and are willing to surrender, the lightest touch could eventually lead to an orgasm.
- Stimulate your sense of taste
This is actually something I’ve been doing since I was a child. But with a partner, it can become an erotic experience. Prepare a tray of aphrodisiac delights like oysters, figs, honey, almonds, chocolate and champagne… the works! Undress to your favorite lingerie, get blindfolded, and start making a very sexy mess…

As liberal and open-minded as Marlies Dekkers is now, during her childhood she was equally conservative. “Every night, I would be on my knees, praying my Hail Marys.” Still, that period is precious to her; it has shaped her into the power woman she is now.

Governed by NO ONE
Flame-haired, brave-hearted and always dressed to dazzle, Elizabeth the First, also known as England’s ‘Virgin Queen’, is one of the most unforgettable women in history. Her glorious reign is known as The Golden Age ~ a period that saw the birth of Shakespeare, the defeat of the Spanish Armada and the emergence of England as a world power. It lasted almost 45 years; Elizabeth’s legacy as a feminist icon however, has already spanned nearly 5 centuries. “My sex cannot diminish my prestige.”
Only 11 days after he beheaded his second wife (the flamboyant Anne Boleyn), King Henry VIII married a pale, fair-haired maiden called Jane Seymour. Who exactly was this girl, and what had made the king so besotted with her? To this day, historians don’t quite know what to make of her.
