Gags Used In Bondage

What kind of gags are used in bondage

BDSM enthusiasts use gags for different pleasures. Some enjoy keeping screamers quiet during impact play or torture. Some prefer the feeling of control or humiliation. Gags won’t make your sub completely silent but they certainly muffle sub’s voice. Besides, there are gags designed to keep the submissives’ mouths open for various reasons. In either cases, there’s a gag type suits you. We’ll go through the common types of gags used in bondage.

ball gagBall Gag & Bit Gag

Ball gags and bit gags are most popular for beginners and among the common gags used in bondage play. The bit or the ball fits easily and comfortably between teeth and won’t require you to keep your mouth wide open. They do a great job of muffling your subs’ voice and limiting their ability to speak clearly. The erotic moaning and mumbling add all the expected excitement and are very arousing for both partners. Their shapes also make them drool uncontrollably, adding a strong sense of humiliation.

Ring gagRing Gags

In some scenarios, you don’t want to restrict your bottom’s speech, but rather to have full access to their mouth for oral or medical play. Shaped like a ring, ring gag is velvety-smooth and gentle on the teeth. It doesn’t cover the mouth but keeps it open, thus taking away the ability to speak. This type of gag allows you to enjoy BDSM restraint along with sensational oral pleasure, adding versatility to your playtime. Other open-mouth gags include tube gags, spider gags, Whitehead gags and, Jennings gags.

Tape Gags

If your purpose is to keep your sub completely silent, tape gags are the best choice. Your subs will be deprived of the ability to move the lips and can only whimper from their throats. Duct tape is a popular choice, but we won’t recommend. Because the glue on it may badly damage the skin. Masking tape or bondage tape is a good choice. Beginners can give scarves, bandanas or muzzles a try. Pay attention! Tape may restrict breathing, so always make sure that your sub’s nose is free of obstructions.
