Muzzle Gag

What you need to know about muzzle gags

For kinksters into muzzle gags

Muzzle gags are designed to prevent animals from using their mouths - and submissives can benefit from the same effect! Muzzle gags don't usually remove the wearer's ability to speak, but rather cage around the mouth and jaw just like a dog's muzzle. This means they can still communicate, but they're prevented from making their own choices about what goes in and out of their mouths, and muzzle gags are a powerful symbol of being under someone else's control, too. Some are designed with openable 'hatches' that the dominant partner can unclip to slip in some food or drink, a cock or anything else that strikes their fancy. For obvious reasons, they're especially popular amongst people who are into puppy play.

What is a muzzle gag?

We have all seen dogs wearing muzzles but not all BDSM muzzle gags look like that. They are designed to control what goes in to a submissive’s mouth. Many of them are made from leather and are just a panel across the mouth area. This panel can sometimes be opened and closed.

How do you use a muzzle gag?

A muzzle gag fastens like any other gag, but this often has straps that go across the face and under the chin as well as behind the head. Be sure all these straps lay straight against the wearer’s skin. A muzzle gag will prevent a sub/bottom from being able to be heard clearly. Agree a safeword action before play so they can communicate if any issues arise or they’re unhappy to continue. Hand movements, a series of blinks or dropping an item clasped in a hand are all good safeword alternatives.

Why choose a muzzle gag?

A muzzle gag is often the one of choice for puppy play enthusiasts as it is based on a dog’s muzzle. It lets the dominant control when the submissive eats and drinks. It is also good for those who don’t want anything going inside their mouth or stretching their lips wide open. As it fits over the mouth and under the nose, not inside the mouth at all.

Are muzzle gags just for puppy play?

Nope! Muzzle gags can be used for anyone who wants to use a gag but doesn’t want to have something directly inside their mouth.

There are so many kinds of gags, ball, Jennings, soft, hard…there’s a gag for everyone. Designed to keep the bottom, submissive or slave relatively quiet, gags are a popular item for BDSM play. A gag stops the person wearing them from being able to communicate freely, this adds to the feeling of helplessness for the submissive partner and is another way for a Dominant to show their control. It’s very important to make sure the person wearing a gag is able to breathe and is comfortable in the gag, you want to stop their words, not their breath! With careful use, you can enjoy the sexy sound of silence, well, smothered screams and cries if not complete silence!
Gagging a partner (or being the partner who is gagged) can be an erotic experience for many people - and ball gags are the most common type. They're an affordable and accessible way to experiment with gagging, and the aesthetics are iconic enough to add a little extra something to proceedings - especially when combined with bondage and fetish wear. Some people do find, however, that they're a little too easy to push out of their mouths; if you want an entirely incapacitating gag, penis or bite models can be more effective. As with all things, a little experimentation can go a long way!
Bondage is one of the most famous and best known aspects of S&M and BDSM play, and not without reason. Being tied up is a glorious sensation for the right person, and the control inherent in being the person doing the tying can give a dominant partner a heady rush. Ball gags are also commonly used. Sometimes bondage is there primarily to enhance a roleplay scenario; sometimes it's almost an art form, especially when it comes to rope bondage. Other times it's just to make clear the dynamic and have some fun with each other. Whatever your reasons for indulging, make sure you're doing so safely. Learn some knots that don't tighten under pressure and always keep a pair of shears to hand in case you need to release your partner in a hurry.
