A muzzle gag is a gag that’s typically worn with a submissive partner during BDSM play. It’s named due to its substantial similarity to an animal muzzle, which can be slid over an animal’s snout to keep its mouth shut. Muzzle gags usually have an elastic patch of leather that’s put over the mouth area. They’re held in place by stringing straps which wrap around the rear of the mind in addition to straps which operate beneath the chin and upward over the face area.

As with other gags, muzzle gags may be harmful when misused. It is essential to see a few simple safety rules when using them. For example, make sure that a muzzle gag isn’t too tight it impairs breathing. Nothing ought to be stuffed into an individual’s mouth before a muzzle gag is placed on.
Doing this can’t just impair breathing but can also pose a choking hazard. As an individual wearing a muzzle gag will ordinarily be not able to talk, a safe word alternative ought to be used during play. This may have a string of eye blinks or hand signs to indicate when the submissive is nearing their limits. At length, a submissive sporting any gag should not be left unattended.
Overall, muzzle gags can be a great addition to your BDSM play, as they can increase desire and overall make your time in the bedroom more pleasurable. Knowing where to start with your purchase (particularly if you’re a beginner) can be difficult. Here are a few things to consider!
Ball gag or muzzle gag?
If you have never used a ball or muzzle gag before, we recommend as a beginner starting with a ball as this feels less restrictive on the face as it doesn’t cover your nose, chin or majority of your face. Although they look a bit more intimidating than muzzle gags, they actually are the least restrictive out of the two. You can also pair this with a flogger designed for beginner BDSM play – thank us later.
Not everybody loves latex, and in some circumstances there are people who are actually allergic. If you know that you have sensitive skin, we recommend going with a natural material like leather to avoid any irritation. The only time that you’d have to use a synthetic material is if you were vegan or weren’t comfortable wearing leather on your face. We recommend as a starting point going for a material like leather as it’s soft, easy to clean and is the least likely to pose any irritation.
If you are allergic to latex, and don’t want to use leather – you can always go for other synthetic materials. We recently wrote about the best non-latex condoms, which you can read if you’re looking for inspiration on the best non-latex materials that you can find for other BDSM accessories.
If in doubt, go up a size when purchasing a ball gag or muzzle gag. With larger sizing you can always adjust these to be tighter, but something that is too small can feel restrictive, claustrophobic and uncomfortable. Always follow the product guide when it comes to measurements.
How does a gag work?
A gag works by restraining/stopping someone from being able to speak or move their mouth with ease. It’s used to make one person feel like the ‘dominant’ and one as the ‘submissive’. It’s a form of BDSM play that is raunchy, and can be incredibly effective especially in a role play scenario. Similar to spanking benches, they provide a feeling of power to the dominatrix.
How do you gag someone effectively?
Depending on whether you use a ball gag or a muzzle, the most effective way to gag them is through purchasing an accessory that is correctly sized and will stop them from being able to speak or move their mouth. Please note that to gag someone effectively they should still be able to breathe, and communicate their safe signals or noises to you. You could also use a water based lube to enhance the overall experience.
Which gags are the best for beginners?
We recommend ball gags as these do not completely cover the mouth, and still allow for safe signals to happen with ease.
