Different Types of Gags for BDSM Play

Ball Gag and Flogger

Sometimes subs just make too much noise. When you need to silence your whiny slave, what type of gag should you use? Here are a few different options the experts at BDSMdate recommended when we spoke with them, and the different purposes each is best suited for in role play scenes.

First an important safety note: Always check in with your sub when they are gagged to make sure they are okay. Come up with a non-verbal safe word or motion that they can still perform without talking.

Ball Gags – The red ball gag is sometimes considered an icon in BDSM. It is usually a ball attached to a strap that can be buckled around the head to silence and incapacitate. The balls come in different sizes and colors other than the classic red. You will want to make sure that it’s not too big for your sub’s mouth because that might result in a sore jaw. Find a great selection of ball gags at the KinkLovers Store.

Bit Gags – A bit gag is modelled after the bits used for horses in equestrian sports. A sub will bite down on a bar which is attached by a chain or strap around the back of the head. Many players use it in pony play, where the sub wears gear and behaves like the animal. A bit can also be a great tool if you want to give your sub something to bite down on during a punishment. Check out bit gags for sale online.

Open Mouth Gags – These are gags which hold the mouth open. Some of them might be dental gags, modelled after tools used by dentists to gain access to the teeth. Others might be a simple ring held in by a strap around the head. These are a great way to gain unfettered access to your sub’s mouth, when you want to slip something sexy in. View open mouth gags at our shop.

Muzzles – A muzzle usually covers the lower part of the face and sometimes the chin to hold the mouth shut. Just like with a dog, a muzzle can prevent a nasty sub from biting others, or just silence them until you’re ready to use their mouth again. See a wide selection of kinky muzzles.

Whichever one you choose, a gag can be a sexy way to enhance your power-exchange play!
