Shut Up

Get your kink on without breaking the bank. This ball gag bucks traditional designs that use leather straps in favor of stretchy cord that will stay on tightly and keep you or your sub blissfully quiet. The adjustment system is its huge weak point, but once that's taken care of, the gag is golden!

Use

If you're a newcomer to the BDSM arena, it's possible that the price led you here, and you know what? That's okay. BDSM can be a pricey kink, and sometimes cutting corners is okay.

That having been said, this ball gag is a little hit or miss. Does it do the job of shoving something in your mouth to keep you quiet? Eahhi hingk iih oehhs (that's ball gag speak for 'Yeah, I think it does'. Sorry, too much?) For you, that might be enough to forgive the somewhat clumsy design. It stays on, it fits comfortably in even a small mouth, and it still allows a little breathing room, just in case.

Design / Craftsmanship / Material / Size / Fit

Traditional ball gags come with a strap that buckles to the head. This design bucks convention in favor of two stretchy silicone cords that attach with an adjustable tube piece in the back. This is where things get a little weird, and I'm not talking kinky-weird. In order to adjust the straps, you must use every iota of strength you can muster to pull at the tube piece that connects the two silicone straps. When you're done swearing at it, go pick it up from where you threw it across the room and tug some more. You may be lucky if it has moved more than a few millimeters.

Holy friction, Batman! Trying to adjust the size so you can fit it over your head is an ordeal in and of itself - just try not to exhaust yourself before you get to the main event. Consider adjusting it before you jump to sexytime, else you ruin the mood by discovering you can't adjust this on the fly. It requires a fifteen minute commitment.

On the flip side, once it is adjusted, the give of the silicone straps allows it to fit snugly over the head. When you/your sub opens their mouth, the straps will even contract a bit, keeping the ball firmly in the mouth, where it belongs. (On that note, the silicone has no strange tastes or odors of which to speak.) Despite the dismal adjustment design, once you have it sized correctly, it fits like a dream (you shouldn't have to adjust it again after) and seems to be pretty well made.

Performance

Surprisingly, once I got past the initial adjustment phase, this worked just dandy as a girl's first ball gag. I have a smaller jaw that tires easily, but I had no issues keeping this in my mouth. The silicone ball has just enough give to where it is comfortable to bite down gently into, and I was pleased to see I could still open my mouth a bit to get a mouthful of air if I felt I needed it. When I needed to be shut up, this black beauty did the trick - and really, could you want more from a gag?

The straps can be a little "sticky" in that they will tend to catch long hair as you try to pull it over your head, so make sure you adjust it well and watch your mane!
    • Comfortable during use
    • Holds up to use well

Care and Maintenance

This piece is easy-peasy to take care of. Wash it in warm water with a little soap or use any silicone-safe toy cleaner. Pop it in the dishwasher if you're lazy!

If, for some reason, you decide you want to put this in places other than your mouth, and you need to lube it up before you do (Please, please, please don't use this for anal! Danger awaits!), water-based lubes are your friend.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store
Follow-up commentary
What can I say? This thing gets the job done, even in spite of its poorly-designed adjustment. It's hard to royally screw up a ball gag, and while this one is by no means a feat of engineering genius, it's also at least done me the courtesy of not tasting like a fresh pile of crap in my mouth. I can't argue with that.

    That does look like a pain to adjust. Very nice review though. Thank you!

    Thanks!

    Zombirella, I actually found that the gag itself was quite comfortable. I have trouble finding gags that fit my mouth without overexerting my jaw, and this one did the trick nicely. Once the straps are over your head, it's not at all a burden.
