Rubber, leather or latex - here's what you need to know about masks

Animal masks or kinky gas masks - you decide!

There are thousands of ways to work masking into your kink. Gas masks, for example, are a relatively common fetish; the look and feel of wearing one is highly evocative, and they have a wonderful way of making you feel cut off from the outside world. Gimp and latex masks are iconic to many kinksters, and leather masks are a versatile go-to for all kinds of people in the BDSM community. Other prominent options are medical and animal masks, which each belong to its own fetish play. Masquerade ball styled events are pretty standard in BDSM clubs, and there's something sexy about the allure of a good mask in many contexts!

What are the best masks for BDSM?

It depends on the purpose for it. Some are used for preserving anonymity, others are used to dehumanise the wearer. Any mask that covers a good amount of your face is good for the first purpose but for dehumanisation something more specific such as a gas mask, animal mask or gimp mask would be best.

What is a gimp mask?

Also called a bondage hood or bondage mask, they are designed to dominate, depersonalise and sexually objectify the consenting wearer. They are often made of rubber or leather but can be other materials such as spandex and often are worn with a full body suit. They are synonymous with BDSM as they are often use in movies and TV programmes to indicate someone is kinky.

Why are masks so often used in BDSM?

They have multiple uses, some can be used for bondage, such as hoods, others can be used for breath play like gas masks. And others just enhance a role, puppy and kitty masks for example. And of course, they help to preserve anonymity which can be very important to some kinksters.

Do Dominants wear masks?

Although masks are often worn by submissives for a variety of purposes, Dominants can wear masks too. Often it’s for a special occasion such as a masquerade party or to hide their face at parties or in photographs. If a top wants to wear a mask they can do so, they are the ones in control after

Looking for Fun
Slim, average height, 25 y/o looking to meet/hook up with people, share some pics and have fun. I'm more of a Top Dog, but I'm happy enough to play the bottom role, as well. I use Kik to share pics. Feel free to drop me a message. I'll always be up for vanilla stuff. Kissing, cuddling and topping others. My kinky side involves some petplay, masks, costumes and roleplay with some BDSM mixed in; and I'm willing to explore most other fetishes as long as it isn't too dirty, dangerous or extremely painful. I'm okay with some light pain-play; I have my own limits but I'm also willing to hurt others to their own limit. I WILL NOT DO: .Baby-Play .ABDL .Diapers .Scat

Similar fetishes and kinks to Masks

Gas masks are a common sight in fetish clubs the world over. On the surface, it might seem like an odd choice. Why pick a symbol of war that isn't even bondage-related? The more you think about it, though, the more sense it makes. For one thing, a gas mask looks a little like a human face - but is completely anonymising and dehumanising. For another, the breathing tube allows for intense breath play controlled entirely by whoever is holding the other end. There's also a more obvious aesthetic appeal. These masks play into a specific alternative 'look' that many people find appealing. Whatever your reason for wanting one, make sure you find one without filters intended for wearing rather than as a relic - and do a little research to make sure you're getting one with all the features that interest you.
Animal play is also known as pet play and involves a submissive person taking on the role of a particular animal. Most of these roles are pets such as puppies, kittens and ponies but rarer animals can by imitated too. A dominant who looks after a person during animal play is known as an owner or a trainer. They may get their pet to accept treats from their hand, crawl on all fours or wear a lead for example. It all depends on what kind of animal their pet is.
Pretty much everyone has some kind of clothing that they're turned on by, whether when worn by them or when worn by someone else. For a lot of people that clothing is a little risque: maid-style outfits, or pleated schoolgirl skirts, or stockings and suspenders. For some it's a whole other fetish in its own right, such as PVC corset and latex catsuits. Whatever your preference, there will be something out there that turns you on - so get shopping! Our magazine section has plenty of articles on how to find clothes you love, even in sizes that are sometimes difficult to track down or styles that aren't always super common.
