The 10 Best Ball Gags For BDSM Play

Why should you use a ball gag? 

A ball gag is a very natural step into the exploration of the bondage and BDSM world. The gag provides the ‘bound’ sensation but also offer very minimal amount of setup or preparation, and isn’t overwhelming for a beginner.

Okay, if you opted for a ball gag with an inflatable dildo inside it (more on that later) then you might think it’s a bit too much to begin with… but if you’re wanting to explore bondage and a submissive/dominant form of BDSM-play, then a ball gag is an incredible place to start. 

 

Are they dangerous to use? 

Like any form of bondage, there are potential safety issues that comes with BDSM play. Most notably, you’re going to be stretching your mouth and jaw, and also restricting the amount you can breathe through your mouth. 

Naturally, if you’re prone to panic attacks or quickened breathing when experimenting with bondage, then the placement of a ball gag can seem like a lot to deal with. 

Also, if you additionally have something like the flu, a cold, or a nasal blockage, then this could also add to an already strained approach to breathing when wearing a gag. Couple this with further bondage, and you can easily see how an issue could escalate. So, how do you stay safe? 

Well, the main aspect of any BDSM or bondage play is to have a safe word. Also, if you’re new to ball gags, we wouldn’t recommend also experimenting with other forms of bondage at the same time. Focus on one aspect slowly, and then expand your bondage horizons once you’re comfortable. 

 

I’m new to BDSM… Should I start with a ball gag?

What do beginners need to know about using and buying a ball gag?

Ball gags are all about control. The more gagged you are, the more submissive you are, and although they are not designed to stop your breathing, they give your lover the feeling of complete submission.

Depending on which one you get, you can wear ball gags around the head or over the head. When your sub is gagged with a ball, communication becomes more difficult, adding to that fantasy that you are even in control of their speech, let alone their pleasure. 

The thing to remember with any BDSM toy is that it is just that – a toy. It is not there to cause any serious harm or damage, so please make sure you have safe words at the ready and a sexual trust built before attempting any of these ball gags.

Prices 

Prices vary massively in ball gags; for example, the mouth gag is only $11.99, but then you look at the dildo mouth gag, which is $74.99. It all depends on what you are getting for your money and the quality of the product; this all contributes to the overall pricing. 

The general rule is you get what you pay for and so although some toys may be costly, think of the longevity of that product and the quality.

Cleaning 

Cleaning your sex toys is extremely important; making sure that you wash them before and after use is also critical, and the general rule is if it goes inside you, clean it. It’s common sense, really, but just don’t get lazy with it and make sure to put as much effort into cleaning your toys as you would yourself.

Cleaning products you could use include:

  • Alcoholic wipes,
  • Sanitising tablets,
  • Good old, warm freshwater.

 

Storage 

Storing your sex toys is just as important as cleaning your sex toys. Many sex toys come in boxes that you can use for storage, but make sure it’s clean and put them not just in a box but consider a bag to put them in, just to keep any dust or debris off the toys themselves.

Also, ensure that they are adequately dried; otherwise, the toys can deteriorate.

Recommended For 

Ball gags are for anyone looking for a new kink to try. Maybe you are new to the BDSM world and want to kick start with a bit of gagging, or perhaps you are a seasoned BDSM pro who is looking for an addition to the collection. Whoever you may be, as long as you are open-minded and willing to give it a try, ball gags are for you. 

Jane said this about the Bondage Boutique Large Silicone Ball Gag with Dildo “My wimp of a husband loves wearing this while I ride his face. He tells me the view he gets when I ride him for all I’m worth is the best ever. Highly recommend”.

Can’t go wrong with that review, thanks Jane… I have to say I agree too. Once your jaw adjusts, ball gags offer incredible options for BDSM play, and can allow you to really take things to the next level.
