Spider gags are very similar to a lot of other gags on the market, aside from the fact that the materials can differ – with most being metal or coated metal. We understand that for some, a spider gag can mean taking sexual play to the next level – and it’s important that you’re buying the best product for you and your sexual desires. It’s also important to mention that gags work with so many other accessories and outfits, here are a few for you to look at:
We’ve put some suggestions below for you to consider before making a purchase, as well as a detailed FAQ to answer any burning questions that you may have.
There are a lot of materials out there, but the most commonly used materials in spider gags are metal, faux leather and real leather. There are some silicone options out there, but overall metal is the main component. Most of the metal of the gag will give you some breathing space, but it’s important to note that metal, particularly if it comes into contact with your teeth can be harmful if you have sensitive/protruding teeth in any way. Take this into consideration before making your purchase. The positives of having a metal gag is that you can play around with other toys such as horse dildos, as well as try out a number of different sexual positions. You could even try positions related to your zodiac sign!
There are a number of clasps that can come with gags, the most notable being buckles or clips. It’s important to note that if you’re looking for adjustment, you need to ensure that your material works with this. For example, silicone will be more prone to breakage over time, whereas faux or real leather would hold up better.
What is a Spider Gag?
A spider gag holds the mouth open. There are many unique designs, but many are metal using a ring which goes from the mouth and curved metal pieces which hold the lips from the way. All these are blended with a buckle or strap which can be fastened around your head.
The spider gag has hooks on the sides to prevent the wearer from turning the ring in their mouth. Contrary to the ring gag that may be easily flipped, a spider gag is practical and non-decorative. Ordinarily, these gags have interchangeable rings to accommodate both the wearers’ mouth and the magnitude of any item which may be inserted via the ring.
Since a spider gag puts metal contrary to the teeth, care has to be taken not to damage your teeth when wearing the gag.
Are spider gags safe?
Like most sex toys and accessories, they are all designed to be as safe as possible, providing you can use them in the right way. Not only do you need to clean them after each use, but make sure that you store them in a safe place so they don’t get damaged. When using spider gags or any other gags, make sure that both you and your partner have established safe words and a comfortable environment. Don’t do anything that you feel uncomfortable with, and be mindful that some gags contain metal – so be careful how much pressure or pain you want to exert.
Spider gags aren’t made to be used with any lubricant, so you may find that using a lubricant may end up being quite uncomfortable. However, we do recommend thoroughly cleaning your gag after use as there will most likely be a build up of other fluids as you use it. Make sure it’s an antibacterial cleaner.
What is the purpose of a mouth gag?
Mouth gags are used to prevent the mouth from closing. They can come in varying shapes and sizes and are often used as a form of dominance in BDSM. What makes mouth gags so popular is they can be used in roleplay, as well as during foreplay and intercourse. They are made to look sexy and often, restrictive – and can be used in a number of ways. There are many different types of gags on the market, and spider gags are slightly more garish – but still, incredibly popular.
How do I clean a spider gag?
Spider gags are fairly easy to clean, as the shape isn’t that complex overall. You can use a sex toy cleaner or an antibacterial wipe. With leather, you may want to use a leather cleaner separately as water or antibacterial chemicals may not work, and could end up damaging the leather in the long-term.
