How these silk blindfolds were tested
I didn’t just go into writing this review blind! No! What I did is I talked to the people who have actually used these silk blindfolds. And there are plenty of them out there! I questioned them about what their thoughts on the silk blindfolds were. I then headed over to BedBible’s shamazing sex toy testing team, who looked at all aspects of these blindfolds. And as the cherry on the cake, I even rated them in several key areas to make my review extra understandable – even at just a glance!
Silk vs Satin Blindfolds
I often hear the question, ‘what is the difference between satin and silk blindfolds?’ Well, the answer is pretty easy to explain, and doesn’t need overthinking! Silk is the fiber, whereas satin is the type of material. You can have satin made out of silk, but you can also have satin made out of polyester too. It’s that simple!
What are silk blindfolds?
Silk blindfolds are a kind of S&M device that goes over your eyes. That's right - they stop you from being able to see! Don't worry, though; it's not a bad thing! In fact, it's a lot of fun! If you can't see, then you don't know what's coming next. Silk blindfolds really help add some teasing tension, and they're a great starter item to help you get into harder BDSM stuff!

Fantasy Fetish Limited Edition Blindfold
Create thrilling sexual excitement with this beautiful Fetish Fantasy Limited Edition Satin Blindfold. Try it on your lover, or use it as a nightshade for yourself. When you put it on your partner, it softly covers their eyes, keeping your lover in a pleasurable state of darkness and anticipation that heightens their sexual desire. The mask stays comfortably in place with an elastic fabric strap. Heightened sensory awareness can lead to extraordinary love sessions for both you and your partner.
If you want a blindfold that’s relatively simple to use and gets the job done, then might I suggest the Fantasy Fetish Limited Edition Blindfold? With its two long ribbons, you simply tie it around the back of your (or your partner’s) head. The actual blindfold part itself is large enough to cover both eyes comfortably and will block out any light from getting in, meaning that just wearing it is a sexy tease. Some people might not get on with the ribbons and may find tying them to be a bit of a letdown, but it’s not the worst thing in the world, and I certainly think they do a fantastic job.
Lovehoney Oh! Satin Blindfold
Ideal for bondage beginners and aficionados alike, this super-soft and luxurious blindfold can also double up as an eye mask for the lighter sleepers out there. Silky satin and faux fur make it as sensual as it is practical. A must-have for sensory deprivation, its elasticated straps give a snug fit to stop any cheeky peeking, and the fur lining means that it’s still comfortable when worn for long periods of time. Whether you want to tease or be teased, this versatile black mask is your new best friend.
The Lovehoney Oh! Satin Blindfold is a fantastic option if you’re after an affordable but highly effective blindfold. The satin feels fantastic, and the faux fur lined inner section feels comfortable against your skin. It may get a little warm during extended periods of wear, but there are worse problems to have! With its elasticated strap that goes around the back of the head, this one is a simple to wear and highly effective blindfold. And of course, the best thing about the Lovehoney Oh! Satin Blindfold is that it comes at such a low price. You certainly won’t break the bank with this bad boy!
S&M Enchanted Starter Kit
The Enchanted Starter Kit by Sex & Mischief is perfect for exploring sensory play. It comes with a satin blindfold, a feather tickler, and satin tethers. Blindfolding your partner can enhance all their other senses, like touch, smell, and hearing. Tie the satin tethers to a bedpost and tie your lover down. These tethers can also be used on any furniture in the home, such as a sofa or chair. Use the feather tickler to arouse them. Experience total blindness and heightened sensations together.
I’d recommend the S&M Enchanted Starter Kit if you’re looking for more than just a simple blindfold. Sure, a blindfold is included, but there’s so much more than that! The tickler and the restraints are all great additions that make this kit extra worthwhile. Price wise it is slightly higher, but that’s due to the fact that you get a lot more in it. You get a whole mix of materials in the S&M Enchanted Starter Kit, from Polyester and PVC to rooster feathers. All of it feels great, though, and serves a sext purpose. If you’re after just a blindfold, you might want to look elsewhere, but otherwise, I’d give this kit 2 thumbs up!
Fifty Shades of Grey Satin and Lace Blindfold
The Fifty Shades of Grey Satin and Lace Blindfold is one of the most sexily sensual blindfolds out there! Not only is it made of a soft and cool feeling satin, but the lace sections really add a little extra pizzazz to this blindfold. It has an elastic section for around the head to hold it firmly in place, and it will feel amazing as you wear it. But it’s not just the wearer that gets to enjoy it – the partner will also get a kinky kick out of the way the Fifty Shades of Grey Satin and Lace Blindfold looks while being worn. I’d put this at the top of the pile when it comes to silky blindfolds!
Lovehoney Silky Black Blindfold
Enhance your lover’s senses and increase arousal and satisfaction during intimate play. Made from dual-layered silky black fabric and finished with a hidden-wire frame, tailor it to fit any face shape for the ultimate in sensory deprivation pleasure. This blindfold has been crafted to suit beginners and experienced bondage enthusiasts alike. Its sumptuous style with extra-long ties makes it non-intimidating and a welcome addition to any toy box, while being an effective tool for blackout play. Tie the ribbon at the back or side of the head for a tailored fit, and press the wire frame against your partner’s face to ensure no light seeps through.
Does the Lovehoney Silky Black Blindfold work? Yes. Does it feel good? Yes. But I’d say that this blindfold is one that’s on the lower end of this review scale. The materials are not premium, and despite the low and affordable price, it still seems like you could do better. Don’t get me wrong, you can still have a lot of fun with the Lovehoney Silky Black Blindfold, and if quality and things like that aren’t high up on your priority list then this blindfold will do the job perfectly. But if you’re wanting something a little more premium and exciting, then you may want to look elsewhere.

Sensation Play Tools to Try
Blindfolds are all well and good, but sometimes you need some extra toys to really enjoy the experience! SO here are a few items that it might be worth getting your hands on!
Fetish Fantasy Frisky Tickler
A must-have accessory for any toy box, this luxury feather tickler boasts extra thick plumage for widespread sensation.

Use its soft fronds to delicately tickle your lover, and switch to gentle flicks for more pronounced stimulation.

Move through slow trailing strokes, delicate tickles, and quick flicks to deliver a range of sensations that’ll keep your sub on the edge of their seat with anticipation.
How to use silk blindfolds
Sometimes you look at a sex item and wonder, ‘how the hell do I use that?!’ And for some people, they feel that way about silk blindfolds! So, I’m going to give you a few hints and tips on how to use your sink blindfold! Let’s get to it, guys!
Find the right silk blindfold for you!
There are lots of different silk blindfolds out there, so you need to find one that’ll suit you and your partner’s needs. Some silk blindfolds are bigger than others, and some have an elasticated band around the back, while others have a ribbon. Make your choice! All are good!
Secure it tightly...but not TOO tightly!
If you have a silk blindfold with ribbons, make sure that you don’t tie it too tightly around your (or your partners) head. The idea is to keep it comfortably in place. That doesn’t mean you need to tie it so tight that the top of their head pops off! Just make sure it’s comfortable and isn’t cutting into the skin.
Be smart and stay safe!
It goes without saying, but wearing a blindfold takes away your ability to see. It’s one of your primary senses, and as such you need to be careful when you deprive yourself of it. Don’t go wandering around the room or doing anything unsafe or dangerous, as you may unwittingly end up hurting yourself or getting yourself into trouble!
How to clean silk blindfolds
Silk blindfolds are a lot of fun, but you definitely need to keep them clean! 'But how exactly do you do that?' I hear you cry! Don't worry, I have just the resources for you that will help you keep your silk blindfolds clean, sexy, and sensual!
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.
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.
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.
