gags are a popular piece of BDSM gear that can add a new level of excitement and sensation to your play. In this article, we'll go over the different types of gags, how to choose the right one, and safety considerations to keep in mind.
Different Types of Leather Gags
A gag is a device that is placed in the mouth to prevent the wearer from speaking or making noise. It is typically made of high-quality leather, combined with medical grade silicone and is designed to be comfortable and durable. There are several different types of gags available, each with its own unique features and benefits.
Ball gags are the most common type of gag. They consist of a ball that is placed in the wearer's mouth and is held in place by a strap or harness. Ball gags come in a variety of sizes and materials, but leather combined with silicone is the most popular because of its durability and comfort. The size of the ball can vary, with larger balls being more difficult to breathe around and smaller balls causing less pressure on the jaw.

A bit gag is similar to a ball gag, but instead of a round ball, it has a bar or bit that is placed in the wearer's mouth. Bit gags are often used in horseplay or ponyplay scenes. They can be more intense than ball gags, as they put more pressure on the mouth and jaw.

a bone gag is similar to a bit gag, but the the bar is bone-shaped and are often used as pupplay gear or during human puppy roleplaying games.
An open-mouth gag is a device that holds the wearer's mouth open, usually with a ring or a bar. This type of gag allows the wearer to breathe and make noise, but prevents them from speaking coherently. Open-mouth gags can be used for humiliation play, as the wearer is unable to control their mouth.
A panel gag is a device that covers the wearer's mouth with a flat piece of material, such as leather or rubber. Panel gags can be more comfortable for the wearer than ball or bit gags, as they distribute pressure more evenly. They can also be customized with different designs or shapes to fit specific scenes or fantasies.
Choosing the Right Gag
When choosing a gag, it's important to consider several factors, including size, material, and design. The size of the gag should be appropriate for the wearer's mouth, not too small that it causes discomfort or too big that it could cause choking. The material should be high-quality leather or rubber that is comfortable and durable, and the design should be appropriate for the type of play being engaged in.
The size of the gag is crucial for comfort and safety. A gag that is too small can cause discomfort or pain, while a gag that is too large can be difficult to breathe around and can cause choking. It's important to measure the wearer's mouth before purchasing a gag to ensure the proper fit. A good rule of thumb is to measure the distance between the wearer's teeth, from the left to the right side of the mouth.
Leather is the most popular material for gags because it is durable, comfortable, and body safe. It's important to choose a high-quality material that is safe for the wearer and won't cause irritation or allergic reactions. Always make sure the that gag part that is in the mouth is made medical grade silicone, as this is is the only material that is body-safe (non-toxic) and won't damage the wearers teeth while being comfortable to wear.
The design of the gag can vary, depending on the type of play being engaged in. Some gags are designed to be more intense, while others are more comfortable and suitable for longer play sessions. It's important to choose a design that fits the specific scene or fantasy being explored.
As with any kinky BDSM adventures, safety is paramount when using gags. It's important to ensure that the wearer can breathe properly while the gag is in place, and to establish safe signals or non-verbal cues for the wearer to communicate if they need the gag to be removed. Here are some additional safety considerations to keep in mind:
- Never leave the wearer unattended while wearing a gag.
- Ensure that the wearer can breathe through their nose while the gag is in place.
- Check the fit of the gag regularly and adjust as needed to prevent discomfort or choking.
- Use a safe word or signal to communicate if the wearer needs the gag to be removed immediately.
- Clean and disinfect the gag before and after each use to prevent the spread of germs and bacteria.
- Avoid using gags if the wearer has any dental or medical issues that could be aggravated by the use of a gag.
- Remember that communication is key in any BDSM activity, and it's important to establish clear boundaries and safe signals before engaging in play.
