Gags are often used during BDSM roleplay. They are used to humiliate and silence the sub or slave. The sound of a submissive struggling to speak, drooling, and grunting are sexually arousing for some Doms. While the submissive is under the Dom’s control, their sense of helplessness increases, which is considered a turn-on for some. A gag is a device worn inside the sub’s mouth and is usually buckled around the head. Penis gags, medical gags, penis gags, and ring gags are just a few of the different types of gags available.
What is a Ring Gag?
A ring gag is a gag with a hollow ring that allows access to the mouth. The ring holds the mouth open and prevents the wearer from speaking or closing their mouth. If the ring is large enough, the wearer can perform oral sex. While wearing a ring gag, the wearer will drool, which is arousing for some. In BDSM roleplay, the ring gag is worn by the submissive or slave. For those who are new to wearing a ring gag, pick one of a smaller, more comfortable size and gradually upgrade to a larger one once the submissive becomes more familiar with gag wearing. Ring gags may be made from leather or a mix of stainless steel, leather, and silicone. Silicone is preferred for the ring as it is easier to sanitize between uses.
There are several different types of ring gas to consider:
- Spider gags: The ring has metal “legs” that help to hold the mouth open wider
- Ring gag hybrids: Ring gags may have nipple clamps or leash attachments
- Regular ring gags: The ring is made of silicone or metal and under 2 inches in diameter
- Deep throat gags: The ring is large enough to allow for deep throating and also has a second ring that will make oral sex more comfortable
Safety Considerations of Ring Gag Wearing
First, as with any BDSM roleplay, ensure that your partner is consenting and desires the use of an o-ring gag. Communicate with each other openly about limits and how long the sub will remain with the ring gag inside their mouth. Safe actions, physical gestures, or grunts can communicate when to continue and when to stop. The sub may also choose to hold an object in their hands and drop that object once their limit has been reached. Gags should not be used on anyone who is ill or who may have breathing issues. The gag should never fully inhibit a person’s breathing. The sub wearing the gag should never be left alone. Vomiting and choking are a real possibility when wearing a gag. Instructions on how to use a gag are specific to the type of gag purchased.
As with all sex toys, ring gags should be sanitized between uses. Cleaning can be done using a toy cleaner, warm water and soap, or an alcohol wipe. Some gags may be boiled in hot water or can be cleaned in a dishwasher. Pay careful attention to any ridges, holes, or crevices where fluids may become trapped. Follow the care instructions given by the gag manufacturer for cleaning and storage.
