What to consider when choosing a BDSM ring gag
If you’re a beginner considering trying out ring gags, the following factors are important factors for you to consider before getting one.
The materials used in the construction of these fabrics is one thing you want to watch out for. However, most ring gags are simply designed to be safe and non-toxic. The straps are made of original leather coated with silicone material that is durable and strong. The ring is usually made of nickel-free metal, which makes it firm but at the same time designed to be comfortable in your mouth.
Also, keep in mind fabrics being used in the construction of the gag. I find that leather and suede tend to bite less into the skin than one made with rubber straps. A ring gag made from silicone is best because you can easily clean it. The lip gags are made of rubber or silicone. While it may not harm when you incidentally bite on it, you may need to be careful to be when using it because of allergic chemicals such as phthalates that may be contained in rubber which you don’t want in your mouth.
For Optimum safety, the materials are designed to be fully coated with silicone materials, which are considered the next thing to the real human skin. Consider going for ring gags that are made from silicone since they are softer and safe.
The straps that come with the ring gags are usually adjustable, so it fits well for all sizes. The length of the whole strap is generally between 20 – 27 inches. The strap length on most of the items is multi-fit; however, if you feel that you require a larger size you can follow specifications to choose a more lengthen strap.
The rings external measurements are in 3 categories-
Small ring – 45mm

Suppose you’re a beginner, consider experimenting with smaller sized O-ring gags such as the DOMINIX Deluxe Silicone Open Mouth Lip Gag. You can subsequently go for a larger size when you get used to them.
Your ability to be able to clean and maintain your ring gag is substantial to the durability and efficient use of the gag. Opt for ring gags that are water-resistant and can be easily cleaned using water. Gags made with silicone are the best choice when you are considering cleaning.
One important question to ask yourself is about the cost! BDSM ring gags range in prices, the difference usually being in the material used. Gags made from leather are generally costly. However, no matter what your budget is, there is an O-ring gag for you.
What is the difference between a ball gag and a ring gag
The difference between a ball gag and a ring gag is that a ring gag has an open ring-shaped design held by straps while a ball gag has a ball-shaped object help with straps. The ring gag is similar to the ball gag, only that a hollow ring replaces the ball. The ring decreases the possibility of choking and allows access to the mouth. Oral sex may be performed if the ring is big enough. A ring gag will cause the sub to drool wildly, which is often the aim of the gag. A ball gag usually induces choking and is more daring.
Why do people like wearing gags during sex?
The idea of being forced to be quiet or being forced to keep your mouth open sounds fascinating to many bondage sex players. Worldwide, many people find the notion of wearing gags during sex to be very erotic. There are several reasons for this fantasy, but the main reason by far would be domination or erotic humiliation. Gags usually cause a lot of drooling. Alas! That is a major turn-on for most people. It is what causes the majority of the appeal for both the dominant and the submissive.
Other people who engage in fetishes are sexually aroused by gags and the sounds people make during sex while wearing them. BDSM players who are into these facets of BDSM play love the idea of gags because gags have an aura of punishment and control and thus can be used as a form of humiliation. Gags can be used with chains and attachments to form some sort of harnesses, meaning you can quite literally control your sub anyhow you, please. When used in combination with other physical restraints, wearing a gag can increase the wearer’s sense of helplessness and anxiety level within a BDSM scene by rendering them ineffectual to speak during the sexual activity they find enjoyable.
The use of a gag in the bedroom creates a very clear sense of hierarchy: you know who is in charge and who is obedient. Adding this kind of display can be extremely erotic for those in BDSM relationships. To add to all of these, it is common knowledge that a BDSM gag may slightly deprive you a bit of free flow breathing. This small deprivation of air can intensify pleasure during orgasm.

How to use an O-ring gag?
You don’t have to be a Veteran BDSM player to use a ring gag very well. The first key to using an O-ring gag is to position it correctly on the mouth before securing it. The O-ring goes behind the teeth, snuggling with the floor and roof of the mouth, and wraps around the lips if it is a lip gag. Subject to the activities you want to try and avoid avoidable jaw pain for the sub, the ring should be of the right size. Once you get it positioned in the right spot, tighten the straps to the desired tightness. It should not be too tight to be painful for the sub. Secure the straps well enough to ensure that the ring stays in place.
Can O-ring gags be used for oral sex?
Yes! O-ring gags are perfect for oral sex. The sex toy keeps the sub’s mouth open through a ring placed at the center. They have no choice but to take in anything you put into their mouth! Whether you want your sub to suck on you or you want to do the insertion, as long as you can fit in through the ring, they will take it. Whether your sub can really go down on, you might not even be your goal. Just puréeing into their mouths in your hot sexy, nasty plays could be fascinating.
What are the Safety Measures to Take before Trying Out?
Before you even get to the wearing stage, you and your partner should establish a safe signal. Remember, safe words won’t work in an O-ring gag scene. The sub won’t be able to verbally communicate their needs. Therefore, you need to establish some warning gestures that will indicate that it is time to stop if you are becoming too uncomfortable.
The dominant needs to be extra-aware of the sub’s motions and take on extra responsibility for beginners.
The first step is to have a conversation. You can talk about expectations and concerns to be sure that you’re on the same page. You need to find ways to tell each other if it’s getting too intense or uncomfortable. Experts advise that you agree on a specific gesture for when the sub has had enough and wants you to stop or do something else.
An example of said gestures or signals that can be agreed upon is:
- A repeated movement such as tapping three times on the back of the hand or snapping your fingers could mean “the gag is too tight, please loosen it up” or “slow down.”
- Signaling with an object in hand such as ringing a bell or any other item to bring attention can mean “this is too uncomfortable, please stop”
- If you’re trying a ball gag out for the first time, consider allotting a period. You can start with a 10 to 15 minutes time limit. This helps the submissive become accustomed to the feeling of being gagged.
- Finally, remember there might be a lot of drooling, so you might want to keep a handkerchief close.
