Beginner's Guide to Ball Gags

In addition to restraints, you may want to explore the world of ball gags. Keeping your submissive quiet is not much fun if you just tell them to keep their lips sealed and they do. Exercising your control sometimes requires you to make it impossible for them to do something and just like the use of restraints to keep your submissive in a specific position; a ball gag keeps them from talking during the entire play session.

Sizes

Ball gags come in different circumferences and choosing an appropriate size for your submissive is totally dependent on the skill level that you are at. Beginners are advised to use the small ball gags as it only requires your mouth to be open so far, enabling you to get used to the drooling and the ball before advancing onto the next size of ball gags.

Timing

As the ball gag forcibly keeps the mouth open for a period of time, the jaw may begin to ache a bit as fatigue in the muscles set in. To make sure that this does not escalate to pain or muscle cramp, timing the gag period is of ultimate importance. For beginners, keep the gag on for short periods of time to ensure that the whole experience is generally pleasurable, avoiding early quitting by your submissive, or even a painful experience. As you keep practicing, extend the periods in short bursts and watch as your patience pays off in the end.

Material

Ball gag materials are either made from porous or non-porous materials. Choosing either depends on your specific uses, and the number of partners you have playing ball gag with you. Porous materials include; rubber, leather, pvc and rope. These are great materials but the porosity of the material makes them susceptible to harboring body fluids. With ball gag, drooling is inevitable and this seeps into the material, making sharing a hazard risk. With porous ball gags, ensure you only use it on one partner to prevent spreading of contagious diseases.

Non-porous materials include; plastic, silicone and metal. These ball gags are waterproof making them ideal for any water based play sessions you may dream of. The non-porous surfaces are great as there are no fluids trapped in the material, making surface cleaning with an antibacterial cleaner sufficient to keep the ball safe. These balls are ideal for multiple partners, provided you thoroughly clean them before use.

Safety

Safety is of most paramount when it comes to ball gags. Keeping you and your partner safe at all times should be of the greatest importance in every session.

Before beginning, always agree on a non-verbal safe word. From snapping fingers to blinking three times, the non-verbal cue should be obvious enough. Always make sure to watch out for the signal as you progress with the game.

Never gag someone with a cold. The submissive should have their airways clear at all times, and a cold greatly undermines the breathing of the sub, making the gag a great choking risk.

If your partner has a stomach upset, refrain from using gags. The gag may aggravate the situation leading to choking if they throw up.

Always check on your partner periodically during the session, to check on any signs of distress or discomfort and to make sure you do not miss the safe sign.

Finally, you should never ever leave your submissive unattended while they remain gagged. This ensures no time is lost when reacting to any emergency that may occur while they are gagged.

Beginning the incorporation of a ball gag into your BDSM play may seem like an easy step, but caution should be exercised always during you first sessions. Gagging in itself is dangerous and you should ensure that you take it slow, practicing patience to give your submissive time to adjust to the new game. As you slowly but surely progress, keep in mind the safety precautions and only pick out a bigger ball gag when you and your partner are both psychologically and physically capable of handling the complexities. Maintain an open line of communication always and ensure that you respect your sub’s decisions if they feel ill-equipped to handle ball gags.
