It's Not Polite to Talk with your Mouth Full!

I considered giving this gag three stars, but to be honest, Spartacus hasn't truly let me down yet. I may get irked at the ability to chew the aparatus like an apple, but it doesn't mean this product isn't the perfect item for someone else a little less aggressive. It's sleek and classic. It's for us queens and kings of BDSM what a strand of pearls was to Audrey Hepburn. For the price and quality, you'll be hard pressed to find a more worthwhile buy.

Use

First of all, I want to take a brief second to apologize for how late this review is. It's taken me nearly two whole months! I usually always review an item one to two weeks after I receive it. I have an excuse, though! I was busy taking the MCATs, like a real grown up, so go me. And now onto the juicy stuff...

This ball gag is appropriate for anyone and everyone. It's not strictly feminine or masculine, but that's not to say it isn't pretty. It's quite gorgeous, in fact, but I'll get to obsessing over the little design details in a bit. Seriously, I'm hard pressed to think of any person who wouldn't be honored to stuff such a beautiful gleaning red rubber ball in their mouth. It's not a complicated supplement to your play time, so I feel confident to say that beginners as well as experts enjoy this product. It's a great way to introduce BDSM into your sexual lifestyle. Strap this baby in and wait naked for your partner by the door. It's also a fabulous accessory. Spice up a birthday present for your man or woman and have an erotic bondage pin up girl photoshoot! Plus, if you're not new to these side of the tracks, this ball gag won't let you down like some other cheap alternatives. It's sturdy and sexy for everyone.

It's pretty travel friendly. It's obviously a ball gag, so if you get stopped by security and pull this out of the bag, you might have some explaining to do to the kids. It's compact, though, and will fit snuggly inside a medium sized clutch alongside your cell and wallet.

Design / Craftsmanship / Material / Size / Fit

The design is near flawless. Objectively, it is indeed perfect. They're made from genuine rubber and leather, two of the most enduring materials you can find in the sex toy industry. The actual ball gag has a 2" diameter. This provides for a good sized mouthful. If you want to make sure that the fit will work for you, you may want to find a small sports ball or fruit around 2" in diameter and see how it feels. I can easily anticipate that some people's jaws will simply be too small for this gag. It's always a smart idea to just try before you buy.

The ball also has a pretty wonderful shape. In all honesty, this is my first ball gag, so I'm not quite sure if this is simply the standard, but on the side of the gag that sticks out of your mouth, it's slightly flattened. They also come in a variety of colours I, of course, a slave to the traditional image, purchased the red one. It was absolutely gorgeous. At first, I thought I would receive a solid red gag, but it's actually very opalescent. It's as if you mixed semen with glitter and stirred it into the plastic used to make the ball gag with a toothpick.

The actual rubber used for the ball is silky smooth. Rubbing your tongue against this material is like licking an angel's pussy. Well, it's pure heaven only AFTER you get over the taste. It's rubber, so of course you're gonna get a big gulp of it. After a short while, it goes away, but the smell is not so kind. That odor will lurk for a long time, my kinky friends. Sorry.

The gag is attached to a 22" leather strap that has 11 holes. It tightens up about another 8 or so inches to accomodate a wide range of heads.

The only thing that sort of sucks about this product is that since it's leather, it's obviously not vegan. If you're uncomfortable with using leather, you may want to keep browsing.

Performance

Ultimately, this gag did it's job. It gagged me, and never once did it slip out. It sat comfortably in my mouth, with my teeth biting down on either side. However, I was displeased with the resilience of the material. I expected to be able to bite down -- hard. Please for the love of god, don't put any effort into chomping down on this baby! My teeth slid right through. I don't know if my teeth are relatively strong, but it didn't feel like it took much to pierce the rubber skin. I suppose my days of prying off beer caps in college came back to bite me in the ass. Just take it as a warning. A light clenching is okay, but if you like to bite down during play or when you cum, you may want to look elsewhere.

I did find that I drooled a bit. Swallowing's a little harder with a ball gag and sometimes shit happens. It's not that big of a deal or particularly even a comment towards this particular ball gag, but something to watch out for in general when purchasing your first gag.

Also, the very last issue I have with this gag is that if you tighten it a bit too much, you might end up with indents from the steal buckles on the sides of your mouth. Those are a bit awkward to explain away at work the next morning, so be sure to watch out for that.

I never felt the cold bite of steel and happens only too often with toys that have metal somewhere in them. I never caught my hair in the buckle or had any trouble with keeping the gag in place. In theory, I'm sure it's more than plausible that these issues may arise, but I've never encountered them, and I feel fairly confident to say that I'm not sure they will. This ball gag simply works pretty seamlessly, disregarding the entire biting through it problem.

Care and Maintenance

Ugh. Rubber. The thing about rubber is that it's porous, and it's a nasty one to keep clean. Sure, it'll last you a long time, but if you don't take care of it, you can unwittingly subject yourself to all kinds of nasty bacteria. You don't want to have this just rolling around your sheets or floating around a drawer. It'll soak up all your lint because rubber's exceptionally receptive to soaking up any electrons it can find when it slides past another material. This causes all your little pieces of food, hair, thread, plastic, and paper to stick to it like little magnets. To clean it, I usually clean it by running warm water over it and letting it air dry.

You can expose the ball gag to silicone and water lubricants, but try to stray from oil-based lubes.

The other part of the gag's made of leather, which isn't nearly as difficult to deal with. It doesn't attract much dirt, but if you get anything on it, just use a warm, damp washcloth and gently wipe away the mess. You can use a gentle soap, as well, but stray away from anything abrasive. Allow it to air dry. Be sure to keep it out of the sun, though, as leather can fade fast.
