IMG_3951Prior to receiving the Bondage Boutique Silicone Bit Gag for review, I’d only ever used one gag. I won it in a giveaway, it was a simple plastic ball gag. I was pumped, so I used it, and by the end of the session the corners of my mouth were bleeding. I did find it fairly hot, but that doesn’t change the fact that gags shouldn’t pinch and cut my mouth.

So I was looking through Lovehoney’s site and saw this gag, sent the folk over at Lovehoney an email, and they kindly sent me one for review.

The Bondage Boutique Leather and Silicone Bit Gag provided me with an entirely different, significantly more pleasant, experience.

The bit design means the edges of the bit, where the rings connect, sit far outside my mouth. This is what caused issues for me with the ball gag; the leather would pinch my mouth where it went through the ball. Having the bar means it doesn’t. There’s absolutely no uncomfortable pinching or scratching. No sliced up mouths are created as a result of using this gag.

The silicone bit has some give that is really great to chew on. It feels nice in my mouth, I can bite until my heart’s content, without leaving any marks, and without getting sore teeth or jaw. Thanks to it being made from silicone there’s no unpleasant rubber taste. I can push the bit out of my mouth very easily, and I can swallow around it. If you like the drool look, it’s just as easy to let it flow on out around the bit.

I have a big head, and the straps easily allow for it. I haven’t measured it myself, but the stats on the Lovehoney site say it goes up to 25 inches. It buckles easily and, miraculously, I don’t even get my hair stuck in it.

The straps are very slightly stiff, but I expect them to soften with use. It’s not a big deal, actually very minor, as it’s not stiff enough to be uncomfortable. If you’re looking for soft, supple leather to begin with, then that’s not what you’ll get.

One downside is that, as far as I can tell, the bit isn’t removable. I’m no leather expert, I can’t even guarantee it is leather, but I don’t like to get it wet. Thanks to the length of the bit, it’s a little easier to clean despite not being able to take it apart. I put some soap on a face washer and rub it down, then carefully rinse it with warm water.

The Bondage Boutique Leather and Silicone Bit Gag is extraordinarily comfortable, looks damn good in use, and is suitable for every level of player. I’d wholeheartedly recommend it, particularly to beginners, as it’s much comfier and forgiving than a classic ball gag.
