Review: Bondage Boutique Raspberry Pleasure Leather Blindfold

Bondage Boutique Raspberry Pleasure Leather BlindfoldAfter I received the Ankle Cuffs to test, I wanted to complete the set. I ended up purchasing the Wrist Cuffs and the Blindfold. I decided against the collar on this occasion. I am not a huge fan of pink typically, but I actually really like shades of raspberry and this one is lovely. It makes a nice change from all the black and red bondage items that we have in our collection. Dark pink is quite rare in bondage too, as it’s mostly light, sissy pink that is used.

It arrived as all Bondage Boutique products do, in simplistic packaging. Just a clear, plastic pouch with a tag attached. I don’t think any other packaging is particularly necessary, but it would be nice with lovely items such as this one.

When I opened up the packet, I was greeted with the raw scent of leather, which is a scent that I adore. It resonated for several weeks following the purchase too, which was great. I later noticed how well made it appeared to be. The leather is of a high standard and feels delightfully smooth to the touch. I wasn’t really sure what to expect considering the low price tag, but it’s just as luxurious as some of the items I have from the Dominix range, which are considerably more expensive.

Bondage Boutique Raspberry Pleasure Leather BlindfoldWe have several blindfolds to our name, but this was our first buckled experience. The others that we had either fastened via a satin tie or a simple, elasticated strap around the head. I was worried that I might be able to get this fastened tight enough, as my partner always insists that I have a small head, but there are nine holes of adjustability and luckily, the ninth one was perfect for me. It was slightly loose still, in that I could put two fingers underneath the strap, but it didn’t fall down and/or off.

In regards to how much light it blocks out, I’d say most. If it has been fastened tightly enough, then I can’t see underneath it, nor can light get in. It does sneak in through the nose gap though, regardless of how tight it is. It’s not light enough that I can clearly see everything that my partner is doing, but it does remove some of the suspense as I can get the gist of what is coming next. I think for that reason, this is a product that is best suited to beginners.

Overall, I’d say that this is a nice blindfold. It is comfortable to wear, although it does dig in around the nose slightly when fastened tightly, and it has been made well. I would feel happy to recommend this to beginners who don’t want to be in complete blackout, but still want the experience of some sensory deprivation. If you’re an intermediate/advanced user, then you might find that this just isn’t dark enough for you.
