Scarves are versatile tools for all kinds of kinky fun in the bedroom. After building up a basic collection of fetish gear, however, I was hoping to finally return my scarves to their original purpose as a fashion accessory after buying this Sex & Mischief Satin Blindfold.
At first glance, the blindfold’s packaging looks nice, except the photos don’t portray the blindfold accurately. With no way to see the actual product inside before purchase, I was buying… ahem… blindly, so I was dismayed when I pulled out what appeared to be a flimsy sleep mask similar to something you might get for free on an airplane. The stitching and seams are even and well done, but there is absolutely nothing special about this blindfold. When bending the mask, you can hear the thin layer of crinkly foam padding inside. Meager bands of elastic strap the mask to your face, and although the bands can stretch far enough to slip over a larger sized head, it is uncomfortable – Dradyn endured this mask for about ten seconds before he asked if we could just go back to the scarf.
This is not the quality I expect from a brand like Sportsheets. Since I don’t yet own anything else from their Sex & Mischief product line, I’m hoping this isn’t the standard for this sub-brand. If you’re looking for something better than a cheap drugstore sleep mask to blindfold your partner, keep searching for a nicer product, or just stick to a good old scarf.
