Things You Should Pay Attention to When Shopping for an Open-Mouth Gag
Several things will help you determine if a certain open-mouth gag is the right one for you:
Type of gag: Mouth gags are available in various varieties. A classic O-ring gag consists of straps and a hollow ring that keeps the wearer’s mouth open. Like other gags, this one is usually available in various sizes. Lips gags feature a pair of lips made of silicone or another flexible material. In that case, the gag holds the mouth open and goes over the wearer’s lips. This one guarantees the comfort of the person penetrating the wearer’s mouth. Some O-ring gags are also available in a kit with a plug or a stopper.
Size of the ring: The O-ring's diameter will determine how much your mouth will be stretched. So, go smaller if you’re trying this kind of gag for the first time. Eventually, you can progress to a bigger ring or keep a manageable size if that’s your thing.
Materials: Check out both the materials that the ring and the straps are made of. In some instances, the ring and the other hardware will be made of a metal like stainless steel. Rubber and silicone are other choices that give the O-ring a bit of flexibility. Some people find those materials a lot more comfortable than metal. The straps could be crafted from leather, vegan leather, vinyl, polyester, and others. When choosing, seek comfort, longevity, and aesthetics. The look and the toughness of the open-mouth gag will be determined by the material the straps are made of.
Adjustability: A good mouth gag should fit comfortably. Thus, you’ll need a way to fasten the straps and ensure the tightness is right. Manufacturers will usually list the minimum and maximum diameters that strap adjustments allow. Make sure that the size is right for the intended use. If you believe that more than one person would use your open-mouth gag, choose a product that allows for bigger size adjustments.
Additional features: Now that we’ve covered the essentials, let’s look at a few extras. There are a couple of additional things you may want to consider before buying. Some open-mouth gags give you additional uses. For example, some designs incorporate nipple clamps or a leash for more pronounced fetish or BDSM play. Sometimes, the design is a bit more elaborate to match your style. For example, having spikes on the straps is a nice added detail that many people enjoy. In some instances, an open-mouth gag can have a locking mechanism that further enhances the dominance aspect of use. Even in this niche, you can find subtle product variations that appeal to different tastes.
Ease of cleaning: An open-mouth gag should be easy to sanitize thoroughly. That cannot be easy to accomplish if there are many elaborate bits and pieces. Choosing simpler designs and materials that can be cleaned thoroughly (even machine-washed) helps ensure impeccable hygiene.
