Amaurophilia is a fetish for a blind or blindfolded sex partner. People with amaurophilia, known as amaurophiles, are sexually aroused by sexual partners who are unable to see them. This might be due to religious guilt about nudity and sex, low self-esteem or feelings of inadequacy. Amaurophilia can manifests itself by using blindfolds or having sex in total darkness. Many people are uncomfortable having sex in bright light. Also, tactile stimulations reach greater sensitivity in semi or total darkness.
