Different Types of BDSM Mask

  • Blindfold — These are the most beginner friendly options, but they are also great for more advanced play — they are what you would consider a bondage staple! Remove your partner’s sense of sight and they are reliant on you making them great for all kinds of power play. They also heighten the other senses!
  • Hood — This covers the whole face and head, sometimes with an open mouth for naughty teasing. Some restrict vision completely whereas other allow for partial vision. These are often used to take away the submissive’s identity.
  • Leather Mask — Leather masks come in a wide range of designs from eye masks to full face masks and hoods.
  • Latex Mask — Similar to leather mask, latex masks come in all different shapes and are perfect for anyone who love latex!
  • Pet play — There’s a pet play mask for every type of pet out there, including puppies, kitties, bunnies and more!

What is a BDSM mask?

BDSM masks are usually worn by a submissive partner during power play. They can take the form of blindfolds, ornate face masks, or full hoods. They help the submissive partner get into their role and go deeper into subspace. Bondage masks can be used for sensory deprivation, by blocking out the person's sense of sight for example, which creates a sense of anticipation and allows then to focus more on the physical sensation. BDSM hoods are often used to create a feeling of objectification as they take away a person's sense of identity. They can be made from many different materials from lace to leather to latex and some are designed to look like puppies or cats for pet play!

Pros

Cons

Can let some light in
Conclusion

I really love that this blindfold is shaped around the nose as this gives much better coverage than the bean shaped ones. It does still let in a little bit of light but that’s very difficult to avoid. The thick strap is more comfortable than the thinner ones and less likely to stretch out or snap. Overall, a great BDSM mask at a great price, especially if you prefer more elegant designs.

How to clean a BDSM mask

Many fabric masks are machine washable, but always check the instructions first. If your mask is made from leather or faux leather, you will need to wipe them down with mild soap and a damp cloth to keep them clean.

Porous
materials

Soft plastic, hard plastic, jelly, rubber, Cyberskin are all porous materials, meaning that small particles and bacteria can penetrate the surface. This makes it impossible to completely clean these types of materials.

Therefore, it is recommended that you use a condom with these types of toys, especially if you are sharing them. Clean these toys with mild soapy water and dry gently with a towel. These materials are more easily damaged, so be sure to be gentle and make sure your toys are completely dry before storing.

Non-propous
materials

Silicone, glass, stainless steel and some hard plastics can all be washed using a mild soap (like you would use on your body) and warm water. Just be careful if your toy contains electrical parts.

Silicone and stainless steel toys without any electrical parts can also be boiled for sterilisation.

The toys with electrical
components

If your toys contain electrical components, be extra careful when cleaning them and always check the instructions provided with the toy. You can use a gentle cloth and soap to wipe or sex toy cleaner or cleaning wipe to down your toy, making sure that no water comes into contact with the electrical parts.
