Blind Jockey Blindfold by Leatherbeaten

This is not a blindfold to be taken lightly; it's intimidating, hardcore, rough, and not "pretty" like many other blindfolds out there. It's definitely made to go in a dungeon. Even though it does have a plush inside for comfort, it blocks out all vision from the wearer. Leatherbeaten's Blind Jockey Blindfold is a great, well-made blindfold for people of any type, though I do recommended it to people who enjoy harder, rougher BDSM.

How it's used
Blindfolds block out a person's vision; that's what they're made to do. When one sense is taken away, all of the others are heightened, intensified, and made stronger. When wearing a blindfold, a person might have an increased sense of smell, or touch (generally, the sense of touch is the one that's most heightened).  Wearing blindfolds can be great for sensitivity play or teasing a partner.

With the Blind Jockey Blindfold by Leatherbeaten, simply adjust the elastic band at a really loose point, making sure that it's loose enough to fit over your partner's head with a bit of space. Once it is placed on your partner, tighten the strap so that it's a snug fit.  Adjust the blindfold as you need to, making sure that they're comfortable.


Personally, my favorite thing to do with blindfolds is use floggers or ticklers (like my metal chain tickler, freshly taken out of freezing cold or boiling hot water) and lightly run them over my little girl's bum, back, or thighs. Whips work well for this too. There are many ways to tease and please a partner while they're wearing a blindfold, by either using implements or using your body. Add wrist and ankle cuffs, and you'll have a lovely time.

Design/Craftmanship/Material/Size/Fit
The Blind Jockey Blindfold by Leatherbeaten is a very straight-forward, no-games sort of blindfold.  Leatherbeaten has another blindfold design, a silk, less-intimidating, more pretty blindfold that's a complete contrast to this design.  The blindfold has a nice, soft, plush fleece inside with a high-quality, great smelling leather outside to give it a comfortable, but intimidating look.  It's extremely well-made, with only one personal aggravation making it a bit awkward.


One thing that many people will agree on is that the design of the over-the-nose arch in blindfolds is a must for any good blindfold, comfortable blindfold. The absence of one is something that many people don't like (unless it's a satin or silk blindfold—even then, though, it's preferred to have at least some sort of cut-out)—I personally don't at all.  This blindfold by Leatherbeaten does have that comforting cut-out piece, which makes this product a lot easier and comfortable to wear.

Each of the eye pieces are very popped-out and when worn come away from the face, making a sort of cone shape. Though this doesn't bother me personally (it's actually quite functional and makes it so that they do not irritate your eyes), it might be unattractive to some people. Also on the eye blinds are four seams, two on each eye. They are what make the cone shape. On the seams, the threading looks similar to a corseting style and is done very beautifully. What I don't like about the seams, however, is the overlap. On both the inside and outside of the blindfold, there is an overlap at the seams that can brush against the eyes and be uncomfortable when worn.


The Blind Jockey Blindfold is adjusted to fit by an elastic band. It accommodates a wide range of sizes, since the elastic not only can be adjusted, it's also very stretchy and gives a lot. At its smallest and biggest, it can fit sizes of about 17" to 25", not stretched. Since it is a very stretchy elastic, it's very comfortable on the head and movable, not creating any discomfort.

Care, maintenance, and how to store
If any sweat or fluids get on this blindfold, simply wipe it down with a damp cloth with maybe a bit of soap rubbed into it. Of course, this goes for both the fleece and leather sides. After wiping it down and drying it out completely with a towel, leave it out by either hanging it up or setting it down in the open.

Since it is made of leather, it needs breathing time. Let it out for a bit of air every now and then, especially before use, and do not keep it in damp places (like under a sink).

Packaging
The Blind Jockey Blindfold comes in a plastic packaging with a paper insert that says,
"INSPIRED BY JOCKEY MASKS, THIS GREAT LEATHER BLINDFOLD ACTUALLY STANDS OFF THE EYES, MAKING IT IDEAL FOR WEARERS OF CONTACT LENSES, AND EVERYONE ELSE!"
Under this is an Asian-inspired piece of art with a woman wearing the blindfold, laying on a horse, and a man making love to her doggy-style.


Extra comments and performance
The thing that I love most about this blindfold is how much it blocks out. You literally cannot see anything when you're wearing this! It's absolutely amazing. Though it's not pretty or cute, like some of the silk blindfolds that I linked earlier, it's definitely one to be used many times. It looks like something you'd see in a dungeon (my dungeon, in this case).
