Try bondage hoods for more kink in your play

In the world of BDSM, bondage accessories may be called toys, but they are surely not meant to be played (or even seen) by children. If you’re looking to expand your collection of BDSM toys and get some new experiences, bondage hoods may be just what you need. Having your slave wear a hood or a mask during play is likely going to bring in new sensations for both of you.

If you’re new to BDSM, you may have a lot of questions about bondage hoods. Keep reading this article for answers to all (or most) of them.

Why Would I Want a Bondage Hood?

Bondage hoods bring an additional element of kink into your BDSM activities by depersonalizing the person who’s wearing them. Leaving them faceless makes you feel like you’re no longer interacting with your partner, but with a sex toy. In addition, you can use masks and hoods to add elements of sensory deprivation, disorientation, or role play to your BDSM activities.

How to Choose a Bondage Hood?

With a lot of sex toys available for purchase both online and in your local sex shops, you may struggle to choose the one that’s right for you and your partner. As a rule of thumb, you go for something simple and not too expensive as your first bondage hood. Rubber, latex, and spandex bondage hoods are all good options because they adjust to the wearer’s head size and facial features, are relatively easy to put on and take care of, and won’t cost you a fortune.

How Open Should the Bondage Hood Be?

Many BDSM people have a fetish for sensory deprivation, so they get a bondage hood that covers the whole face, including mouth and eyes. These bondage hoods provide more “extreme” sensations, and that’s why they aren’t suited for beginners. For your first mask, go with something that has big enough holes for the eyes and mouth so that you don’t have to worry about accidentally tripping over something and breathing.

How to Wear a Bondage Hood?

If your hood is made from one of the softer materials, it should be relatively easy to put it on and get a good fit. However, if you go for leather or PVC, you need to make sure that the hood has straps to help you achieve a better fit or have the hood custom made for the exact measurements of your head. It is also a good idea to check that the eye, nose, and mouth holes all align with your respective facial features before you get the mask.

Wearing a bondage hood to a BDSM club or event may be a very appealing idea, but before you do so, make sure that you’re comfortable wearing it for an extended period of time. Otherwise you may end up feeling very uncomfortable and possibly even asphyxiated (this is particularly true for masks that don’t leave the mouth and/or nose open).
