GREAT STARTER GAGGING TOY

1. DOMINIX Deluxe Silicone Open Mouth Lip Gag

Gag Material:
Silicone
Gag Size:
1.5”
Strap Material:
Faux leather
Length:
23.5”
Fastening:
Buckle
Additional Features:
Accentuated lips

This open mouth gag is made from super flexible silicone. The squishiness makes it really comfortable for both dom and sub.

The wearer can actually close their mouth to swallow if they really need to, which makes it a great starter gagging toy.

It’s probably too tame for the BDSM veterans wanting stricter restraint though. 

The inner rim of the mouth gag fits neatly behind your subs teeth…keeping them nicely out of the way.

The material doesn’t have much ‘slip’ though, so use a little lube to slide your cock in.


BEST RIGID RESTRAINT

2. Bondage Boutique XL Silicone O-Ring Gag

Gag Material:
Silicone
Gag Size:
1.5” (outer diameter)
Strap Material:
Leather
Length:
21.5”
Fastening:
Buckle

This oral gag provides a more rigid restraint. The sturdy O-ring is completely coated in smooth silicone, so no damage to your sub’s teeth if they try to bite down. 

One disappointing thing with this piece is the mislabeling as XL.

If you have an average size cock or larger, then you’ll struggle to get more than the tip through the o-ring. 

So, not the best option for forced oral. 

BUT it does look super kinky and it still has a decent mouth-stretch to have your sub soaking in saliva no time. 


BEST FLEXIBLE OPTION

3. Scandal Silicone Stopper O-Ring Gag

Gag Material:
Silicone
Gag Size:
2”
Strap Material:
Silicone
Length:
26.5”
Fastening:
Buckle slider
Additional Features:
Plug on a chain

This open mouth gag is made entirely of silicone. The mouthpiece, the straps, and the stopper that plugs your sub’s mouth.

That little extra is great for stifling their moans!

The O-ring measures 2” in diameter, giving a slightly wider stretch than the Bondage Boutique gag.

But, this one is more flexible so if the stopper is removed, the wearer can bite down to avoid jaw ache.

The silicone strap with the buckle slider can get a bit fiddly though and doesn’t stay in place as a buckle with pin fastener would.


4. DOMINIX Deluxe Silicone O-Ring Gag

Gag Material:
Silicone
Strap Material:
Silicone
Length:
22.5”
Fastening:
Buckle
Additional Features:
Lockable strap

This O-ring gag is covered in medical-grade silicone for a velvety smooth feel. The added comfort makes it suitable for wearing in longer scenarios or during rougher play. 

But there are two things that set this mouth ring gag apart: its lockability and the metal connecting rings.

The latter gives you more options for power-play fun. You can attach leads, reigns, or straps to restrain your sub even further.


5. Stockroom O-Ring Gag

Gag Material:
Silicone
Gag Size:
S: 1.75″ / M: 2.125″ / L: 2.5″
Strap Material:
Leather
Fastening:
D-ring buckle

This sexy little number is a simple metal O-ring gag wrapped in leather. The straps are also made of soft subtle leather. 

They fasten to fit any sized head by looping one of the straps through the D-ring buckle. 

While leather does look proper badass for bondage, it’s extremely porous meaning nasty bacteria can settle inside it.

You can ‘clean’ it with mild soap and water, but it won’t be sanitized completely. 

If you want an open mouth gag you can share with partners, then go for a silicone gag.


6. Fetish Fantasy Extreme Spider Gag

GAG MATERIAL:
Metal
GAG SIZE:
1.5”
STRAP MATERIAL:
Faux leather
LENGTH:
21”
FASTENING:
Buckle
ADDITIONAL FEATURES:
Spider legs

This simple spider gag makes closing your mouth practically impossible. The thin metal ‘spider legs’ extend from the metal O-ring gag, forcing your partner’s mouth to remain open. 

The legs wrap around the cheeks, and the metal is cool to the touch, adding an element of temperature play.

These types of gags are not for beginners. 

They can inflict some pain which is great if your partner is into that, but not so great if they’re not expecting it.

Take some time to train with a regular ring gag before trying something like this.


So, you’ve seen the goods now it’s time to figure out which type of open mouth gag you fancy.

Here’s what you need to know to make your choice: 

What Is An Open Mouth Gag and Why Use Them?

An open mouth gag is exactly what it sounds like…a sex device to hold the mouth open! 

It’s a great way of adding extra kink to bedroom bondage, BDSM scenes, role play, humiliation, and power play. 

For the wearer, an open mouth gag can enhance arousal by making them feel even more submissive. And for the dom/domme, it can turn them on by reinforcing their dominance. 

Some fetishists also love the drool that is part and parcel of open mouth gags.

Plus, BDSM mouth gags just look HOT!


Types Of Mouth Gags

There is a whole world of gagging toys out there to explore. Open mouth gags, or O-Ring gags, are just the tip of a very kinky ice-berg! 

The most popular oral gags are:

Ball Gags: Come as a solid ball or a hollow ball with holes for easy breathing. They are great for restricting verbal communication and swallowing. 

Bit Gags: Similar in style and effect to the ball gags, they are a solid bar styled on a horse’s bridle. 

Inflatable gags: These are usually in the form of a small rubber ‘balloon’ which can be inflated by a hand pump.

Penis gags: This is kind of like an adult pacifier shaped like a penis! It’s strapped into the sub’s mouth, forcing them to suck. They can also have an external dildo attachment for face-fucking fun!

Tape gags: A quick n easy way to gag your sub is with tape.

Muzzle gags: For kinksters into pony play or animal play, muzzle gags are an over-the-mouth gag that resembles a muzzle used on animals. 

Medical gags: Medical and dental gags like the Jennings gag or spider gags are metal devices that hold the sub’s mouth wide open for longer periods of time.

Spider gags: These gags feature extra arms that extend from the O-ring and wrap around the cheeks. They’re designed to make it impossible to close your mouth and are on the more extreme end of open-mouth gags.


What To Watch Out For When Buying Your Open Mouth Gag?

Size 

If you’re just starting out on your BDSM journey, then start small and build up. Even the most experienced porn stars have trouble wearing open mouth gags for longer than 20mins. 

Go too big too soon, and you risk painful jaw ache or worse, lockjaw.

If you have trouble opening wide enough even for the smaller o-ring gags, try a bit gag. They are much less stressful on the jaw but will still leave you drooling.


O-Ring Material

Your main choice when it comes to O-ring material will be metal or silicone. You also have metal o-rings covered in silicone or leather. 

The two things to keep in mind when making your decision will be… 

  1. your teeth…careful of chipping on metal; 
  2. ease of cleaning…silicone and stainless steel can be sanitized, leather can’t.

One more thing about leather… wearing an open mouth gag makes you drool. A LOT. 

Leather doesn’t do so well in excess water. It has some resistance, sure, but over time it will become stiff and lose that lovely soft supple texture.


Quality & Adjustability Of Straps

The strap material, thickness, and fastening will all have an impact on the look and feel. Silicone is great for the mouthpiece itself, but not the most comfortable when it comes to straps. 

Soft leather or faux leather that won’t chafe the skin will be your best bet. 

Also, think about how easy the straps are to adjust. An ill-fitting gag can really hurt if too tight, or just become pointless if too loose.

A strap with holes and a buckle usually gives the best overall fit. 


Cost

There’s a ring gag to suit practically any budget. 

If you’re looking for something simple, it’s possible to find good-quality gags for as little as $20. 

The more features you add, the more that price will increase.


How To Wear An Open Mouth Gag

Before you even think about putting a ring gag on your partner, set aside some time to talk about any expectations, limitations, and safety measures that are important to each of you. 

Enthusiastic consent is what we’re going for here!

Since your partner won’t be able to speak, you’ll need to agree on a safe gesture (or a non-verbal safe word). Make sure this gesture is clear and easy to identify.

The beautiful thing about gags, especially open mouth gags, is that they introduce a new level of trust and intimacy into your play. Wearing a gag like this can feel very vulnerable, so make sure you respect that trust.

Once you both feel safe and comfortable, you can get into enjoying yourselves! 

Double-check that the harness is secure but not overly tight, and check in with your partner to make sure it’s comfortable. 

If the wearer is new to these toys, start with a smaller ring. The last thing you want is to cause an injury by going too big too soon.

In any BDSM play, aftercare is integral

After your play session, check in with your partner to offer them care in whichever way they need (and you can provide). 

Again, it’s a good idea to talk ahead of time about what the aftercare should look like since expressing needs while coming out of sub space can be nearly impossible for some people.


How To Clean An Open Mouth Gag

This all depends on the material of your gag. For metal and silicone gags, it’s as easy as using mild soap and warm water. 

For leather straps, clean them carefully with a damp cloth but make sure not to get them wet as this will damage the leather in the long run.


Where To Buy Open Mouth Gag

My personal favorite online retailers for open mouth gags are Lovehoney and Stockroom. They’re both reputable retailers with impressive returns policies and great customer service.

Try to avoid shopping on Amazon or Ebay since there’s very little recourse if you have problems with your purchase.


FAQ

Can I Use Open Mouth Gags For Oral Sex?

This all depends on the size of the O-ring and the size of your penis. 

Most open mouth gags aren’t designed for this since holding the jaw wide open for long periods of time can be painful or even cause lockjaw. 

However, if your partner is experienced or is willing to train, it’s possible to use a wider ring for oral sex.


Are Open Mouth Gags Safe To Use?

If you use them correctly and listen to your partner, they’re safe to use. 

For the safest experience, limit the time you’re using the gag, and favor soft materials like silicone that won’t risk chipping teeth or causing other injuries. 

If you’re the dom, make sure you’re always accompanying your sub while they’re wearing the gag. 


How Long Can I Wear An Open Mouth Gag?

There are no hard and fast rules to this, but 15-20 minutes seems like the sweet spot. You can take breaks and then try again if the wearer is ready. It’s also possible to train for longer sessions as the wearer gets used to it, but this should be done with patience.
