3. The Splitting of a Bamboo
How you do it: Blindfolded, the woman places one of her legs on her lover’s shoulder and stretches out the other leg (you can alternate as you go if you’d like). He kneels, straddling her outstretched leg. Hence the name “splitting of a bamboo.” Get it?
Why it’s especially awesome with a blindfold: The large amount of skin-to-skin contact will deliver big-time sensation. “Any of the Kama Sutra positions could work with a blindfold, but the best ones are those of a more tactile nature,” says Eland Sparklers, author of Kama Sutra Connect-the-Dots.
4. X Marks the Spot
How you do it: “Have your partner lie spread eagle on their back on your bed,” Van Kirk says. “Blindfold your partner. Begin various licking and kissing all over his or her body. Then break out silk arm restraints and use them to tie wrists and ankles to the bed. Switch up between oral and penetration. To really change sensations, include other props like feathers, ice, sex toys and even food.”
Why it’s especially awesome with a blindfold: “There is something about lying this open and vulnerable,” Van Kirk says. “This will create a smorgasbord of sensation that your partner wouldn’t have experienced relying on their sight.”
