BDS&M II: Sensory Deprivation

Mariana hurriedly opened the last gift. It was a yellow satin wrap. She looked inside the box to see if it was covering something more expensive but that was all there was to it. For some reason, Mariana felt cheated. “What? What’s this?”

Scott got up from his chair and walked over to his girlfriend. He gestured her to stand up and he stood behind her. “The satin wrap goes around your eyes,” He explained, “what you have there is an ensemble and all you’ll be wearing for the rest of the night. I suggest you hurry up and change. It’s been a month since I last had sex and quite frankly, I’m getting impatient.”

Bondage. Blindfolds. Handcuffs. Rope. I’m sure you all have heard of couples using fuzzy handcuffs and blindfolds in bed. Or maybe you’re one of the lucky couples getting your freak on by doing so. Of course, you have probably seen some people wear what looked like gas masks with only a zipper covering their mouths. Congratulations! You have been exposed to a form of BDSM called sensory deprivation. On the blog, I’ve spoken about sensory deprivation before, albeit briefly (See Sex and the Married Woman: BDSM R US for a refresher). Well, I think it’s time we delve back into that topic.

Sensory deprivation is when you deliberately reduce or just cut off one of the five senses (sight, smell, taste, touch, hear). Sensory deprivation can also be in the form of limiting physical movement, such as bondage. Sensory deprivation heightens the other senses so you’re more aware of what’s happening to you and your surroundings. Let’s say you decide you want to be blindfolded one night. You will be amazed how much your hearing will improve almost instantly. You’ll probably hear creeks and kinks you didn’t know your house had. Next thing you know, you’ll be going over the baseboards to see if they are holding up as they should be.

Even though this might be a little too freaky for my taste...

Scary? Possibly. Kinky? It could be. Hot? Very much so.

Personally, I’m a big fan of sensory deprivation for a few reasons. One, I like being tied up or restricted in some way where I can’t easily move my arms or feet (or even both if the mood suits me). You may think being that restricted doesn’t sound remotely kinky or sexy but trust me on this one. Being tied up and blindfolded while you’re getting fucked is so unbelievably hot, you’ll be wondering why you never did it before.

Two, no matter how many times or different ways you do a bondage act, it’s never the same. That is the one thing I can definitely say about bondage is that it’s never dull. There’s always something new and exciting to experiment. Three, there is something so enticing and hot about trusting your partner (remember a big part of BDSM is trust) to do whatever they want with your body.

Now before I sell you completely on sensory deprivation, there is something you should be aware of and that’s the uncomfortable feeling that you’re not in control. I don’t know about you but if I can’t see anything and only feel what’s being done to me, I’m not necessarily a big fan at first. It’ll take me a while to get used to what is going on. Communication with your partner is key. I strongly suggest you talk it over with your partner on comfort levels first before you proceed with any type of kinktacular sexual activity.

And yes, I just made up a word: kinktacular. I bet you’re saying it right now.

For the next lesson in BDS&M II, we’re going to go a step further and talk about another key factor in sensory deprivation: sensation play. And trust, it will be sensational.

And there you have it,

-V.
