Masks serve a variety of functions in BDSM activities and are used by Dominants and submissives alike. While a masks specific role varies by type and scenario, all masks help their wearer to separate their everyday self from their role in the BDSM scene and can provide their wearer with the illusion of anonymity. Masquerade and Eye Masks are a perfect example of this function. Other masks, such as the Love Mask and Solid Gas Mask provide the wearer with some degree of sensory depravation, which increases the intensity of a BDSM scene. Others, like the Rubbers Secrets Mask, hide the wearers face completely. These types of masks serve to separate the wearer from their identity and are common in humiliation and objectification play.
