Just a short post about gags.
Gags can be used in BDSM in order to show control or to add to restraint.
There are different types of gags available:
The classic ball gag
Exactly what it says on the tin. A ball used as a gag. These are solid balls attached to a harness which goes around the head. They restrict the submissive’s ability to talk and create the feeling of control. These should be fairly safe as the ball is attached to the harness… however as with all forms of restraint, a submissive should never be left alone whilst wearing a ball gag.
The air holed ball gag
Same principle as the classic ball gag, however there are added holes through the ball to help the submissive to breathe.
The open mouth gag
This is my favourite type of gag because it displays control. The submissive will still be restricted in talking. There are further options for play as you can fit an average sized cock through the ring. Or maybe pour champagne into the submissive’s mouths.. use your imagination. But also it is relatively safe to use as the gag itself does not block the airway.
The homemade gag
Be especially careful if using something homemade as a gag (I.e. A scarf). It is still important to ensure the submissive is safe and can breathe to avoid any mishaps. Never force an item deep into the mouth to avoid blocking the airway completely.
