A Beginner’s Guide to Bondage: Using a Ball Gag

If you are new to the lifestyle that is bondage or BDSM, you might be wondering what a ball gag is; you may have heard the term bandied about but are still unsure as to what it actually is. A ball gag is a piece of apparatus sometimes worn during bondage and/or BDSM role-play. Although ball gags are generally associated with role-play involving bondage that is not always the case. The person wearing the ball gag is generally regarded as the submissive one in the partnership and the one without are regarded as the dominant partner.

The truth is that people may wear ball gags for a variety of different reasons. Some gain erotic pleasure from a ball gag, whether they are playing the submissive or being the dominant one. The wearing of a ball gag usually increases the sense of powerlessness within the wearer and also their anxiety level. It is a means of depriving them of a way to influence the sexual activity by removing their ability to speak, which can be highly erotic and enjoyable to them as they are unable to utter the ‘safe’ word.

It should be made quite clear here though, that all sexual conduct involving the use of such toys as ball gags should be enjoyed while implementing the key words of safe, sane and consensual. As the wearer’s ability to talk is reduced, it should be agreed between the both of you (before you start,) what sign will be used instead to say that the submissive person wants the action to stop.  

It's great to be able to buy a ball gag online, so that you can look at the different options from home in a comfortable environment. At least then you will be able to make your choice from the comfort and security of your own home. I would also recommend that the two of you look through the choices together and come to a decision as to which ball gag you would like to buy. And, as with all our products here at Nakees, we use discreet billing and shipping so you can rest assured that your privacy is of the utmost importance.

Most people would consider ball gags to have connotations of punishment and that they are used as a form of humiliation, but if that turns you on, then who can say that you are wrong? In fact there are those who would consider themselves to be fetishists who are sexually aroused by the noises gagged people make and by seeing them drool uncontrollably. Again, this is your choice, just be careful who you consider to be a ‘trusted friend’, before you start telling someone what you are now into. This is one of the reasons why people who are into this lifestyle tend to go to places where they know that everyone has the same kinds of interests as they do.
