The first leather blindfold I have for you is the Padded Leather Blindfold. Hand-sewn and made of high-quality leather, this leather blindfold mask is perfect for sensory play at any level. It only comes in one size, but thanks to the elastic band on the back, it should easily and comfortably fit on most sizes of heads. If the all-black look just isn’t for you, there’s also a red version available as well. Available for cheap despite being made of premium materials, the Padded Leather Blindfold could be just what you need to jump-start your sensory play journey!

Although I had quite a few options to choose from, I ended up choosing the Padded Leather Blindfold as my “Test Winner”. Ultimately, it boiled down to simplicity and pricing. While leather blindfolds aren’t very complicated by design, sometimes—especially when trying something for the first time—you just want the most basic design possible. The  Padded Leather Blindfold perfectly fits this description. The blindfold leather is hand-sewn, giving you a level of quality that’s honestly unexpected given the low price point of this accessory. Most importantly, however, this blindfold is comfortable to wear. This means you’ll be able to truly enjoy trying sensory play for the first time, without the distractions that come along with discomfort. Affordably priced, well-made, and easy to use, the Padded Leather Blindfold is an easy item to recommend!

Ouch! BITCH Blindfold

 Ouch! BITCH Blindfold

  • Love the lettering
  • Enjoy power play
  • Are new to sensory play

Ouch! BITCH Blindfold

  • Prefer genuine leather
  • Don’t like the lettering
  • Want an adjustable strap

Next up is my “Cheapest” pick, the Ouch! BITCH Blindfold. Unlike the first option, the blindfold leather on this blindfold is faux leather, meaning people who don’t want genuine leather can still enjoy using this blindfold. The main appeal of these leather blindfolds is the bright red lettering, which faces outwards, perfectly labeling your sub and putting them in their place. Contoured for comfort and elastic for the perfect fit every time, the Ouch! BITCH Blindfold is a great option. Not only is it extremely affordable, but it’s also simple enough that people of all levels can enjoy adding it to the bedroom!

  • Cheap
  • “BITCH” lettering on front
  • Elastic strapping
  • Easy to clean

  • Not for head diameters exceeding 9.5”
  • Faux leather
Ouch! BITCH Blindfold
MaterialsFaux leather, elastic
Diameter (internal)Up to 9.5 inches
AdjustableNo (stretches to size)
Colors AvailableBlack

The exterior lettering and the low price point are the main two reasons why I think a person would consider picking the Ouch! BITCH Blindfold up. It’s made from faux leather. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but some people prefer genuine leather, so this really comes down to personal preference. The overall design is fairly basic. Still, a faux leather blindfold doesn’t need to be complicated, and the basic design of this leather blindfold mask should be more than suitable for basic sensory play. The strap is elastic and stretches up to an inner diameter of 9.5 inches. As such, it should fit most people, although those with especially large skulls may find it a bit small. Still, this blindfold costs less than $15 and does everything you’d expect a blindfold to do. I really can’t fault it, so if you like the “BITCH” lettering then I’d say this one is worth adding to your collection of bedroom props!

Doc Johnson In A Bag Black Blindfold

 In A Bag Black Blindfold

  • Are vegan
  • Are new to sensory play
  • Need something budget-friendly

In A Bag Black Blindfold

  • Prefer genuine leather
  • Want color options
  • Don’t like velvet

Another option worth considering is the Doc Johnson In A Bag Black Blindfold. As the name implies, this item is, well, a blindfold in a bag! This is a vegan leather blindfold, meaning people of all lifestyles can enjoy using it without worrying whether or not the product is vegan-friendly. Although seemingly simple, this faux leather blindfold mask actually has velvet on the inside for an extra level of comfort against your skin. Fitted with an elastic band that allows the blindfold to fit most, the Doc Johnson In A Bag Black Blindfold is an excellent pick for anyone looking to purchase a simple blindfold for some sexy sensory play!

  • Vegan-friendly
  • Velvet interior lining
  • One size fits most
  • Affordable

  • No color options
  • No genuine leather version offered

MaterialsVegan leather, elastic, velour
Length8.5 inches
AdjustableNo (stretches to size)
Colors AvailableBlack

As a simple, straightforward, and vegan-friendly item, I think the Doc Johnson In A Bag Black Blindfold is perfect for the “Beginner” mention on this list! True, the faux blindfold leather won’t be for everyone, but I think this is a relatively minor detail. The real MVP of this blindfold is the velvet interior. Not only does this add a sense of luxury to an otherwise budget-minded item, but it also increases user comfort. This is especially important for long play sessions, where having your skin pressed up against leather—faux or otherwise—can quickly grow uncomfortable. My only real “complaint” with this is the lack of design. They put more effort into designing the bag than they did into designing the blindfold itself. Still, this is definitely a nitpick and won’t really affect the leather blindfolds themselves. On the plus side, the exterior does at least look like genuine leather, which should fit alongside your other BDSM equipment nicely. All in all, I think the Doc Johnson In A Bag Black Blindfold is worth checking out if you’re a beginner on a budget.

4 Luxury

NS Novelties Bondage Couture Blindfold

 Bondage Couture Blindfold

  • Like the dark blue coloring
  • Love metal accents
  • Need something nickel-free

Bondage Couture Blindfold

  • Prefer elastic straps
  • Want genuine leather
  • Don’t like the metal accents

All of the leather blindfolds I’ve shown you so far have used an elastic strap to stay securely in place, but that’s not the case with the NS Novelties Bondage Couture Blindfold. Instead, this blindfold uses an adjustable buckle, which—when paired with the nickel-free accents—gives off a much higher-end look than its elastic counterparts. It uses faux blindfold leather, making it suitable for those who hate genuine leather. Colored in a dark blue, accented with bronze-colored nickel-free hardware, and costing less than $25, the NS Novelties Bondage Couture Blindfold is perfect for people who hate elastic straps!

  • Nickel-free
  • Adjustable
  • Dark blue coloring
  • Metal detailing

  • Not offered with genuine leather
  • No color options
  • Lacks additional padding
Bondage Couture Blindfold
MaterialsFaux leather, nickel free metal
Length26.81 inches
Width2.87 inches
Height0.39 inches
Colors AvailableBlue
AllergiesNickel free

Being fitted with an adjustable strap and featuring metal accents, the NS Novelties Bondage Couture Blindfold easily earned the “Luxury” mention on this list of leather blindfold products. Still, despite being my “Luxury” pick, this leather blindfold mask is still competitively priced, costing less than $25. Aside from the buckle, another thing that separates this leather blindfold from the competition is its unique coloring. The dark blue of the faux leather pairs nicely with the shine of the metal studs and buckles, giving it a more premium look than the other options I’ve shown you so far. Really, the only thing I can complain about with this blindfold is the lack of padding. Whereas a few of the other blindfolds featured additional padding on the inside, this one does not. This likely won’t be an issue for shorter sessions or cooler areas, but the lack of padding could lead to discomfort in certain situations. Still, I think the NS Novelties Bondage Couture Blindfold is a great buy overall. If you prefer buckles over elastic straps and want something that looks premium on a budget then I definitely recommend picking this blindfold up for yourself!

5 Aviator

Foam Padded Aviator Blindfold

 Foam Padded Aviator Blindfold

  • Prefer genuine leather
  • Want extra eye padding
  • Already own other Stockroom gear

Foam Padded Aviator Blindfold

  • Are allergic to nickel
  • Have a small budget
  • Prefer having a single covering

If you love aviator glasses then this next leather blindfold mask is just for you. Introducing the Foam Padded Aviator Blindfold! Made in-house by The Stockroom’s dedicated leather team, this leather blindfold mixes fashion with functionality to produce the perfect sensory deprivation experience for enthusiasts of all levels. The back of this leather blindfold features a buckle and look system, allowing the blindfold to easily fit on a variety of head sizes. The front, however, is where the real magic happens. Each eye covering can be individually adjusted, giving you complete coverage every time! If you don’t mind spending a bit more for an item that’s hand-crafted by the experts then the Foam Padded Aviator Blindfold is definitely worth picking up!

  • Individually covered eyes
  • Adjustable IPD
  • Padded interior
  • Buckle system

  • Contains nickel
  • No color options
Foam Padded Aviator Blindfold
MaterialsLeather, foam, nickel
Length27 inches
Width3 inches
Height2.5 inches
AdjustableYes by 8 inches
Colors AvailableBlack

The Foam Padded Aviator Blindfold is unlike any of the other leather blindfolds on this list, but I don’t think that’s a bad thing. All things considered, this blindfold actually offers quite a few advantages over the competition! To start, the inside of the blindfold leather is padded, ensuring you’ll be able to wear the blindfold in comfort for extended periods of time. Each eye can also be adjusted individually, allowing you to precisely adjust the padding to perfectly cover each eye. Like many other items from The Stockroom, this blindfold is made from genuine leather, which could be a plus for some consumers. However, there is one downside you’ll want to be aware of. Unfortunately, this product contains nickel. This isn’t ideal and could make the product unusable if you have a nickel allergy. For some reason, this seems to be especially common with products from The Stockroom. That said, I would still recommend Foam Padded Aviator Blindfold as long as you’re not allergic to nickel. It does cost a bit more than the competition, but considering the perfect coverage you’ll get from the individually adjustable sides, I’d say it’s worth it!

 Padded Leather Blindfold

  • Want a simple blindfold
  • Prefer extra padding
  • Love leather products

Padded Leather Blindfold

  • Want an elastic strap
  • Prefer other colors
  • Are vegan

Last but not least on this list is the DOMINIX Deluxe Padded Leather Blindfold. These leather blindfolds are largely black, with only the silver buckles for accents. Still, the plain design looks fine and works great, so you’ll likely enjoy using this blindfold. Since it uses a buckle fastener, you can easily adjust the blindfold to perfectly fit your face, eliminating the possibility of any light shining through. Even better? The blindfold leather is genuine leather, giving this blindfold a sense of BDSM authenticity that you won’t find with every blindfold around. Fairly priced, easy to use, and providing complete eye coverage, the DOMINIX Deluxe Padded Leather Blindfold is worth picking up for the next time you want to give sensory play a go!

Padded Leather Blindfold
Length28 inches

The DOMINIX Deluxe Padded Leather Blindfold didn’t place in any particular category in this article, but I included it anyway because it’s a well-made leather blindfold mask overall. The design is fairly simple, but it does feature a buckle fastener for precise adjustments, wide eye covers, and extra padding for increased comfort. Most people report that this leather blindfold is comfortable to wear, at least, after the break-in period. Being made of genuine leather does have its drawbacks, and one of those is that you’ll need to break the leather in before you’ll be able to enjoy the perfect fit you’re after. Still, for less than $35, I think the DOMINIX Deluxe Padded Leather Blindfold offers a good value for money. If none of the other options so far have caught your eye then I’d suggest picking this one up. It might not be the fanciest option around, but it’s definitely functional!

How to Stay Safe While Using Leather Blindfolds: BDSM Safety 101

Although simply adding a leather blindfold into the bedroom might not seem like much, it can actually have a huge effect on the person who’s wearing the blindfold. Remember, sensory deprivation from a leather blindfold mask tends to increase one’s perception of their other senses. That means that impacts might be much harder, and restraints that a person is normally fine with could push them over the edge. As such, it’s best to start with less intense experiences before working your way back up to the bondage experience you’re used to. If things start to get too intense, remove the blindfold and take a break. This might seem like an unnecessary step, but trust me: you—and your sub—will feel much more comfortable in the long term, making it possible to enjoy pushing your limits in the future.

How to Use a Leather Blindfold

Never used a leather blindfold before and want to make sure you get it right? No problem, just keep reading!

Discuss Your Boundaries

Discuss Your Boundaries

As mentioned, sensory deprivation can be quite intense, especially if it’s your first time trying it. For that reason, it’s a good idea to discuss your boundaries, fantasies, and limitations with your partner before trying out your new blindfold. Once you get used to using the blindfold, you can then move on to more “extreme” types of play.

Make Sure Your Blindfold is in Good Shape

Make Sure Your Blindfold is in Good Shape

Even a brand-new blindfold can arrive damaged. Check to make sure your blindfold is in good condition before attempting to use it. While you’re at it, get familiar with the adjustment system on your blindfold (if applicable).

Place & Adjust

Place & Adjust

Loosen the strap (if applicable), then place the blindfold on your partner’s head. Make sure both of their eyes are covered, then tighten the strap. Check again to see if they can see any light seeping in from the top, sides, or bottom. If so, adjust as necessary.

How to Clean a Leather Blindfold

Cleaning blindfold leather is extremely easy, requiring only antibacterial soap and warm water to complete the task. Clean the blindfold once using soap and water, then wash away any leftover soap using water only. From here, pat the blindfold down with a dry towel and leave it out to air dry completely before attempting to store it away. Never store your blindfold(s) away while still wet or damp because bacteria can grow and prosper in any leftover moisture.


The main benefit of using a blindfold is sensory deprivation. After eliminating your sight, you’ll likely notice that your other senses seem to be heightened. As for the leather? That’s just a personal preference.

Generally, no. However, some leather blindfolds do have metal components that contain or are plated in nickel, which could cause issues in individuals with nickel allergies.

Yes, there are plenty of blindfolds made from faux leather that are safe for vegans. Check my “Beginner” recommendation for an example!

Both genuine leather and faux leather blindfolds should last for many years to come. However, the actual time frame depends on a few different factors, including frequency of use and maintenance. Most likely, the strap will be the first part to break.

You definitely can! However, if you’re just on the fence about using a blindfold then I would suggest buying a cheap one first (it doesn’t have to be leather). If you like this experience then you can decide whether to make your own or simply buy one.

What is a Leather Blindfold?

A leather blindfold is a BDSM blindfold that’s made from either genuine or faux leather. These blindfolds are designed to block the wearer’s eyes, eliminating their sight. In turn, this should help them experience their other senses more intensely. Leather blindfolds can be used in every situation from light foreplay to all-out punishment scenarios, making them very versatile items.
