LELO INTIMA Blindfold Review
By Cara Sutra
I received the LELO INTIMA Blindfold free of charge in exchange for a fair and honest review. The LELO INTIMA Blindfold is usually priced at £45 and you can buy yours here at Simply Pleasure.
Although I have the black LELO INTIMA Blindfold, it’s also available in red or purple, so there should be a colour to suit both your personal preferences and your sex toys and bondage collection colour of choice.
The LELO INTIMA Blindfold is a beautiful, sensual product, and your journey into the almost decadent feel of LELO luxury starts with the packaging of the INTIMA blindfold. In the award winning way of LELO, the LELO INTIMA Blindfold comes contained firstly in the outer glossy card box, then within you find the subtly branded, lidded black box that you’ll find the blindfold inside. It’s wrapped in branded tissue paper and there’s a LELO card tag which is attached; simply unpin and discard.
The LELO INTIMA Blindfold is easy to figure out; it has the shaped eye mask style front and a ruched elasticated section at the back, all complete and ready to slip over the head and eyes. There are lengthy ties attached to the sides of this main, circular piece – they are tied in a bow over the ruched elasticated section to achieve an elegant look, as well as allowing you to tie the blindfold as tightly as required for a proper, snug fit.
The outer area of the LELO INTIMA Blindfold is black silk and the inner area is patterned silk, like the inner areas of the LELO SUTRA Cuffs and the reverse of the LELO BOA Ties. The consistent design inspires you to collect the set, and for those who revel in sensual, erotic power play rather than hardcore BDSM, the LELO accessories will be perfect.
The LELO INTIMA Blindfold blocks out enough light to leave you waiting in anticipation for your lover’s next move, and taking away your ability to see certainly adds excitement and spice to foreplay and sex. The blindfold doesn’t 100% block out any light, as the fabric sitting flush against your face will depend on your facial contours – and snippets of light may sneak in around the nose area – but you definitely can’t see what’s going on. In a low romantic light of a bedroom environment this doesn’t present any issue.
The small fabric tag proudly declaring ‘LELO’ by the ruched section of the LELO INTIMA Blindfold will delight long time fans of this luxury brand. Even if you discard the packaging and box there’s still no doubt about the manufacturer of this product.
The end of the ties are bias cut to give a better look to a tied bow and the classic ribbon feel. There’s not really much more to say about the LELO INTIMA Blindfold other than that it’s a quality item which suits lovers and those into soft, romantic, sensual play rather than the heavy duty side of BDSM.
If you’d like to own the LELO INTIMA Blindfold, you can buy yours here at Simply Pleasure for £45 (June 2016 update: now on sale for £33).
