bondage hood

An article of clothing made from leather, PVC, latex, rubber, spandex, etc., worn during BDSM sexual role-play, which covers the head and usually the face. Bondage hoods are meant to dominate, depersonalise and sexually objectify the wearer (with his or her consent or preference). The hoods can be completely closed and the breathing ports zipped, buttoned or snapped shut.
 
Medical issues
Bondage hoods have the potential for fatal asphyxiation that is intimately linked to the device’s purpose of design.
