I’m Having a Ball with my Scandal Ball Gag!

Why Reach for a Ball Gag?

how to use a ball gag for bdsmPeople like using ball gags for different reasons. For those who enjoy being submissive in the bedroom, feeling helpless can be a huge turn on. When we give up control and place it in the hands of our partner, the vulnerability and trust required often makes us feel closer to that person. For others, a gag may be the perfect accessory for a captor/prisoner role play.

I don’t normally consider myself submissive, I usually like to be dominant in bed. Then why, oh why would I ever enjoy wearing a ball gag? Is “I don’t know, it’s just HOT!” a good enough answer? Alright, let’s dig in a little deeper . . .

First of all, just because I consider myself dominant most of the time doesn’t mean I can’t dabble in submission a bit. Think about it this way– if omelettes are your breakfast food of choice, does that mean you have to eat them every morning? Of course not. You can still find it refreshing to indulge in an occasional pancake. It really isn’t any different for bedroom activities.

Sometimes in bed when I partake in the occasional pancake . . . erhemmm . . . ball gag, I do it because it’s refreshing to give up control sometimes. Other times it’s because I find disabling my mouth makes other parts of my body feel more sensitive and alive. Sometimes I don’t need a concrete reason, it just feels HOT! Besides, who says wearing a ball gag is always a submissive act? I can certainly command my lover to “get down on your knees and put that ball gag in my mouth, now!” After all, it’s not the toy that makes you dominant or submissive, it’s how you use it.

Why is the Scandal Ball Gag My Favorite?

The bottom line is, I don’t like being uncomfortable. When it comes to gags, many have complicated straps made from rough material, scratchy buckles, or stiff Velcro closures. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had a gag get caught in my hair or pinch my skin. It also isn’t uncommon for gags to become irritating after they are drenched with saliva. For me that usually results in red, irritated cheeks. That’s not sexy at all!

The straps on the Scandal Ball Gag are unbelievably simple and stay put perfectly. The gag is a basic silicone ball suspended on a wide ribbon. Yes, a beautiful, soft brocade ribbon is as complicated as it gets. It doesn’t scratch or irritate. Also, because it closes via a simple hand-tied knot, the gag fits perfectly every time. It’s such an excellent design, I’m not sure why more gags aren’t made this way!

The silicone ball on the Scandal Ball Gag suits me just right. First of all, it’s very important you know what the material your gag is made from. I have purchased gags in the past that had a horrible taste and smell. Some left my lips and mouth with an uncomfortable burning sensation. The Scandal ball is made from 100% pure silicone, meaning it’s non-porous, hypoallergenic, and taste and smell free. It’s supple enough to comfortably dig your teeth into but not too soft as to crack or come apart.

Secondly, size matters when it comes to ball gags. A ball that’s too big can overextend the jaw and cause discomfort. My mouth runs on the smaller side– it’s not uncommon for me to come across “standard sized” balls gags I can’t even fit into my mouth. The Scandal ball nestles in my mouth nicely without putting unnecessary stress on my jaws. On the same token, it’s not too small either, making it the ideal all-purpose sized ball gag.

When to comes to gags, I’m done with complicated straps and overly fancy designs. The Scandal Ball Gag’s back-to-basics design works perfectly for me. Scandal also just released quite a few new kinky items, I can’t wait to get my hands . . . and other parts . . . on them!
