Kink Of The Week: Hoods

The first time I ever saw a hood used during sex was in a porn DVD we rented. I still remember the scene, which was in Flesh Hunter 7 : Teagan Presley, who I really liked back then, dressed as a rather provocative Little Red Riding Hood, and the two men she’d have sex with in full leather dog hoods, or masks. The hoods didn’t stay on for the whole scene, but they certainly were striking, quite unforgettable, and added an exciting edge to the action.

I’ve seen hoods many times since, but very rarely the dog ones, and rarely on DVD. Hoods are prevalent on Kink.com and on some of the fetish sites I visit, in all manner of designs and styles. When I worked at an adult store, we even carried a few, although they were pretty basic.

I don’t own any hoods, and I’ve never played with them. I do think there are some that are pretty hot looking (and I mean that in the sexy way, although they’re probably hot both ways). But, that said, I also find them kind of scary. I don’t think I could wear a full one, especially if it didn’t have eye holes or a mouth hole. I’m not sure I’d be comfortable in any of the others, either, although I realize that comfort is not the objective. My partner isn’t interested in trying these, at least not any time soon, either, but if it was something he wanted to explore, I’d certainly give it a try.  I think it might be interesting if he wore a hood as the dominant, though. It might make things more intense if I couldn’t read his facial expressions and know what to expect.

  1. I am now thinking about the masked intruder…

  2. I haven’t thought of playing with a Top in a mask before…an interesting idea. Though the sex porno of sex as red riding hood with men in dog or wolf masks is, um, HOT.

  3. Aside from the animal-themed ones which I find a bit unnerving, I do agree with you that it might make things more intense! 😉
