Review: Premium Hush Locking Silicone Ball Gag

When your otherwise fairly vanilla partner expresses interests in seeing you in a ballgag, what’s a dominant girl to do? Well, if you’re me, you go looking for one right away. Hell, I’ll drool all over myself every once in a while, it could even be fun. I’m no stranger to being on the receiving end of kinky toys even when I’m not a submissive and, if the unthinkable should happen and I can’t stand it, I can use it on other people. However, picking out a ball gag was a long process for me. Admittedly, this is my own fault. Not everyone makes spreadsheets when comparing sex toys and deciding what to buy, but I do. I decided if I was going to take the plunge, I’d need to do it right.

I wanted to find a gag that was gentle on my mouth. I like to think of myself as having a relatively solid pain threshold, I can take pretty vicious smacks with a paddle or flogger, but I’m an absolute baby about mouth pain. Dentist visits are a nightmare and I still get flashbacks to some intensely traumatizing incidents with my Orthodontist when she was putting on my braces around age 12. For someone as big-mouthed as I am, I also have a relatively small mouth and I can’t open my jaw especially wide. So, I needed a baby ballgag.  Something relatively small and gentle.

If that wasn’t enough, it also needed to have a silicone ball. The idea of gross-smelling rubber toys is bad enough but actually putting them in my mouth for extended periods of time? No, thank you. I was interested in a leather strap but it had to be gentle on the corners of my mouth, so I was looking for something that didn’t have these big square straps on either side of the gag. I didn’t want a dildo gag, a breathable gag, or a gag that covered my mouth or other parts of my face or one that had attached nipple clamps. Oh, and it had to be black.

Now that you’re caught up on the absolute ridiculousness of my requirements, let me get to the actual product. The gag I ended up choosing is this Premium Hush Locking Silicone Ballgag offered by Extreme Restraints.

I’m glad I was picky. This gag is worth it.

The specs: This gag has a silicone ball that is 1.65 inches in diameter and adjustable leather strap that can be opened from 16 to 22 inches. The strap and ball are both black and it has silver metal fastenings. It’s manufactured by Master Series.

When I saw this gag it immediately went to the top of my list of gags. The main feature that attracted me was the fact that the silicone ball is attached to the straps differently than most of the gags I had seen. Rather than the ball being strung on leather straps directly, the silicone ball has two pieces of silicone built-in during casting on either side. This means that the leather strap only connects along your cheeks, not on the delicate sides of your mouth, which makes the gag extremely comfortable to wear.

Another awesome feature I wasn’t looking for but enjoyed nonetheless is the fact that this ballgag is lockable. The buckle in the back has a small loop in the metal tongue which you can put a lock through to ensure that the leather strap cannot be undone unless the entire thing is unlocked. One wasn’t included but I picked up this super cute heart-shaped padlock from Extreme Restraints at the same time that I placed this order so I had one on hand, but really any padlock will do. The locking mechanism works well and seems sturdy, which is always good. ball2

Of course, you don’t have to wear it with a lock and even without the lock on I found I couldn’t spit out the gag without undoing the straps at the back of my head. So, unless your bratty sub has a really big mouth, the gag should stay put without the lock. Still, the option to lock it makes the toy that much kinkier and more versatile, which I appreciated.

Speaking of wearing, the small ball means that even with my relatively small mouth I was able to wear the gag for an extended period of time, an hour during my initial testing. It withstood me biting down on it, lots of drool, and even a bit of tugging as I tried to remove it like a champ. The ball isn’t squishy, per say, but it has enough give to be kind to my teeth. When I took the gag out I didn’t have extreme jaw pain and only a bit of stiffness which was worked out within a few moments. If you have a larger mouth than me you’ll probably need a bigger gag, but this was absolutely perfect for me and I imagine it’d be great for most beginners.

The entire thing is also simple to clean, the leather wipes down easily and the silicone can be given a basic cleaning with some toy cleanser or mild soap after each use. The silicone isn’t a particularly big lint-magnet but since you’re putting it in your mouth I would also recommend a basic rinsing before each use. If you would like to share your gag, silicone can be sterilized (but I would stick to wiping with a weak bleach solution rather than boiling it to avoid damaging the leather.)

My only complaint with the gag is that there is a visible seam on the silicone ball. It’s not huge and in wear it goes completely unnoticed but I thought it was worth a mention.

In summary, I loved this gag. It was possibly one of the most well-researched purchases I’ve made for my BDSM kit and it really did pay off, I don’t have any major complaints and it’s proved to be very fun to use. If you would like your own Premium Hush Locking Silicone Ball Gag, you can purchase yours here on Extreme Restraints for 30USD (although, at time of writing, it is on sale.)

Oh, and since I know someone will ask, yes, my partner did enjoy it. Possibly for the kink factor, possibly because now they know a gag will, in fact, get me to be quiet.
