How to Put On a Ball Gag Harness

Putting on a ball gag harness can be a little trickier than putting on a regular ball gag, namely because there are a lot more straps involved! You’ll probably find your favorite way after a few tries, but here are some tips to help you:

  • Loosen all the straps first, but don’t undo them all the way. If you unfasten the buckles on your harness gag but keep the straps pulled loosely through the loops, you won’t have to figure out which strap goes through which buckle.
  • Fit the ball gag first. Find a comfortable position, with the right amount of tightness, before fastening the rest of the straps. You can always adjust later if you need to.
  • Have someone else help you. It can be difficult to fasten straps that you can’t see, so have a partner that you trust fasten them for you. Make sure you establish a safe signal so you can let them know if it’s too tight or otherwise uncomfortable.

FAQ

How is a harness gag different from a ball gag?
A ball gag harness is simply a ball gag with a head harness attached to it. That means that, as well as the strap around the head for the gag, there are more straps around the head to further restrict the wearer. They may be across the face, below the chin or even on the neck. Some ball gag harnesses also have blindfolds for further sensory deprivation.
Are ball gag harnesses suitable for gag beginners?
Generally, harness gags are designed for more advanced players. They offer more restriction, and therefore don't allow for the same range of motion as a gag on its own. If you're totally new to ball gags, we recommend starting with a plain, small ball gag rather than a ball gag harness.
What is the difference between a ball gag harness and a muzzle?
While some ball gag harnesses and muzzles look very similar, the general difference is that a muzzle doesn't have anything that opens the mouth or goes inside of it.

What is a Ball Gag Harness?

A ball gag harness is an accessory used during BDSM play to give the wearer a real feeling of restriction, and sometimes sensory deprivation. They come in various designs and styles, from a simple harness gag with one or two straps around the head, to some with straps over the face, and some with blindfolds attached. There are also some with different themes, like pony or pet designs. The style that you choose will depend on your level of experience, as well as how a severe an experience you're looking for!

If you crave total restriction, then this Ball Gag and Blindfold Harness from Stockroom really fits the bill. It’s a full-head harness made from soft and flexible leather that’s long-lasting and comfortable on the skin. On the front is a blindfold that leaves your sub unable to talk or see. The metal buckles and rivets and the black leather also give it an irresistible look, while the ball gag itself is made from rubber, so you can bite down on it as you moan and groan.

This harness gag is fully adjustable on around the head and mouth, the top of the head and the chin. That means it fits all kinds of sizes and shapes, but also that you can control how much wiggle room your sub has.

At first glance, this ball gag harness from Strict may seem very similar the one above. And, in some ways, it is! This Blindfold Harness and Gag also has a red rubber ball gag and a blindfold, all in one leather-and-metal-look package.

There are some subtle differences, though. The ball gag in this Strict harness is slightly bigger, at 1.65 inches in diameter. That’s quite big, and is most suited for those with bigger mouths and more ball gag experience. It is, however, still nicely biteable. The chin strap is also a bit further back on the head, and the whole harness is made out of faux PU leather instead of the real thing.

Conclusion

This affordable harness gag is ideal for those who want a full-on kind of harness to plunge the wearer into sensory deprivation. It’s best suited to those who are looking for a more extreme experience, since the ball gag itself is large and in charge!

Of course, since it’s cheaper, there is a trade-off when it comes to quality and potential longevity. The harness straps are made from plastic leather and the gag from TPE, both of which are likely to degrade more quickly over time.

The Stockroom Trainer Ball Gag is here to help keep your sub in line and totally obedient! It has a panel gag style, with a ball that sits well behind the teeth, filling the mouth. The full-head harness keeps the wearer locked in, with straps over the top and behind the head, and under the chin. Plus, every buckle is lockable, though you’ll have to buy the locks separately.

What’s extra special about this ball gag harness is the dildo ring. In the front of the mouth panel is a metal O-ring that allows you to attach a dildo to your sub’s mouth and do with it what you will. Strap in any dildo with a flared base (suction cups and dildos with balls count!), and get face fucking or riding while your sub moans and squirms.

Conclusion

The name of the Trainer Ball Gag is perhaps a bit deceptive, because this is not an ideal harness gag for beginners. The ball is quite large and sits further back in the mouth than traditional ball gags, meaning it creates a very full feeling inside. It also muffles more sounds, prevents drool from escaping so easily, and cannot be pushed out of the way by the tongue to breathe.

However, if you’re more accustomed to these things, then this harness gag could be the perfect match! The dildo ring definitely adds to its allure, too, allowing you to bring some acts of service or humiliation into the mix.

If you don’t own reins yourself, did you know that you can fashion your own out of bondage tape? It’s super versatile and only sticks to itself, not skin or hair, so you can wrap it around the rings on the gag.

Dildo Harness Gags

Nothing puts a sub in their place like strapping a dildo to their face! These dildo gags have all the fun and restriction of a harness, without the ball gag attached.

Looking for a Harness Gag Alternative?

The appeal of ball gag harnesses is actually quite varied. Some like the restrictiveness of the harness straps, while other like the sensory deprivation of wearing a blindfold and a gag at the same time. If you’re more the latter, then did you know that you can DIY a ball gag harness simply by pairing a blindfold and a ball gag? It might even save you money!

How to Use a Ball Gag Harness Safely

Ball gag harnesses aren’t exactly an everyday piece of sex toy kit, and aren’t something you should whip out without some prep beforehand. Like any piece of bondage gear, you should make sure to communicate clearly and openly with your partner before you use a harness gag. You should also ensure that you have everything in place for the wearer to be able to stop the play whenever they want to, even when they can’t physically say so.

Here are some tips for using a ball gag harness safely…

How to Use a Ball Gag Harness Safely

Talk About it Beforehand

Talk About it Beforehand

If you’re interested in incorporating a harness gag into your play, either as a dom or a sub, then it’s important to discuss it with your partner beforehand. Bring it up with them and let them decide if they’re comfortable with the idea, giving them some time alone to think without pressure if necessary. Both of you can then bring up any worries or uncertainties with each other.

Set Boundaries

How to Use a Ball Gag Harness Safely

Take some time to discuss what you are and aren’t comfortable with while using a ball gag harness. This is especially important for the person wearing the harness — what are you comfortable with your dom doing to you, and what do you want them to completely avoid? You can set both ‘hard’ and ‘soft’ boundaries if you prefer, namely things that you know you’ll never be comfortable with, and things you could like in the future but aren’t yet comfortable with.

Establish a Safe Signal

Establish a Safe Signal

Since the wearer won’t be able to speak while wearing the harness gag, you should agree on a safe signal that they can use when they want to stop play and be released from the harness. This could be two claps, three taps on the shoulder, or something else physical that is unmistakable and noticeable.

How to Clean a Ball Gag Harness

Most ball gag harnesses are made from waterproof materials, so they can easily be wiped down with some soap and water if they get a bit dirty. We don't recommend putting your gag harness in the washing machine, as it could damage the harness material. If your harness is made from real leather, follow a normal leather care procedure, using a leather conditioner to keep the material supple and flexible.

Porous
materials

Soft plastic, hard plastic, jelly, rubber, Cyberskin are all porous materials, meaning that small particles and bacteria can penetrate the surface. This makes it impossible to completely clean these types of materials.

Therefore, it is recommended that you use a condom with these types of toys, especially if you are sharing them. Clean these toys with mild soapy water and dry gently with a towel. These materials are more easily damaged, so be sure to be gentle and make sure your toys are completely dry before storing.

Non-propous
materials

Silicone, glass, stainless steel and some hard plastics can all be washed using a mild soap (like you would use on your body) and warm water. Just be careful if your toy contains electrical parts.

Silicone and stainless steel toys without any electrical parts can also be boiled for sterilisation.

The toys with electrical
components

If your toys contain electrical components, be extra careful when cleaning them and always check the instructions provided with the toy. You can use a gentle cloth and soap to wipe or sex toy cleaner or cleaning wipe to down your toy, making sure that no water comes into contact with the electrical parts.
