Blindfolds can help you be super present and reduce your hindrances while also making everything seem a little sharper.

The first time being blindfolded is scary. If you're the blindfolder, be super gentle, keep talking so your partner has a sense of where you are, and try to keep a reassuring hand resting on them at all times. Below are awesome positions to try.

1. The mystery hop

They won't be able to see you, but they'll feel you extra. And if you're restrained by an inner critic offering unwanted commentary during sex, a blindfold can stop that shit.

3. Blackout

If you feel like blindfold pros, bust out two of them and try to feel your way into a semi-tricky position. You're on your back with one leg up over your partner's shoulder, while they kneel and straddle your leg. Teamwork but also sensory overload.
