A gag can be worn during some bondage and BDSM role-plays. The person who wears it is usually regarded as being the submissive partner, while the one without it is signified as the dominant one. The value of the gag to the wearer can vary but many individuals simply derive profound erotic pleasure from the feel of one, either in a submissive or dominant role.
Gags have distinct connotations of punishment and control and can be used as a form of physical and emotional humiliation.The type of gag that is employed will depend on the preferences of the parties and on its suitability to the type of role-play scene. Found clothing like scarves or underwear can stand-in effectively as long as safety is always considered.
In the following images you can see me using a wide, theatrical ribbon as a decorative gag. It is softly confrontational yet, visually, it has a huge, fetishistic impact.
