Eye contact restrictions are a BDSM practice where a submissive is strictly forbidden to look directly in the eyes of a dominant. While they can be physically enforced with blindfolds or masks, typically eye contact restrictions are enforced by forcing the submissive to look down at the floor. Dominants may punish submissives who fail to comply.
More About Eye Contact Restrictions
Eye contact restrictions are a psychological activity done to humiliate the sub and emphasize the hierarchy in the dominant/submissive relationship. The point of the practice is to demonstrate that the the submissive is inferior to the dominant and, as such, not worthy of even looking them in the eye. It is important to note that activities such as eye contact restrictions are done only when it is consensual and negotiated.
