DOMINIX Deluxe Silicone O-Ring Gag
Test Winner & Beginners
DOMINIX Deluxe Silicone O-Ring Gag
Due to the small ring size, this o-ring gag also secured the title of ‘best o-ring for beginners.’ However, that does mean that penises with a diameter larger than 1.5 inches will not fit through the ring.
With soft silicone straps and silicone-covered o-ring, this ring gag is comfortable to wear while also providing some thrilling restriction.
With your mouth held open, you give control to your partner to play with you as they please.
If you want to up the ante, you add a padlock to the buckle to make sure your sub is truly locked in or even add some other restraints to the additional o-rings on either side of the gag.

This is a fantastic price for a comfortable and well-made gag. While comfortable might not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think of being gagged, the silicone gives the straps a slight stretch, so they don’t dig in, and the silicone coating on the gag is softer against the mouth and teeth than a metal ring.
This is a smaller ring, which is suitable for beginners, so it probably won’t be appropriate for penetrative oral sex but is great for power play.
This is a great price for a high-quality ring gag, and as the whole thing is made from silicone and metal, it is super easy to clean.

Gags can be a thrilling and fun way to explore power, domination, and submission and add some visual kink. In any form of sexual interaction, it is important to establish some safety guidelines to protect both your physical and emotional wellbeing. This is even more important when you give someone else control over your body or where the boundaries between pain and pleasure are blurred. Here are some top tips for enjoying ring gags safely.
Both you and your partner need to familiarise yourself with the fastening on the gag and be able to remove it quickly and easily should anything happen. You should also make sure that you have the key to any padlock you use on hand and have a spare.
We have all heard of safewords in BDSM play. A word that quickly and clearly gets the message across that you are not comfortable with what is happening and you want it to stop. This is important as words like no and stop aren’t always clear in a BDSM setting. However, when you have a ring gag in your mouth it can be pretty tricky to communicate your safe word clearly. This is where you can establish a safe signal that doesn’t rely on a spoken word. This could involve a hand gesture, stamping your foot three times, having something in your hand to drop, or any other pre-agreed signal. It is important to think of a signal that is easy to perform, especially if you are restrained in other ways, and will not be confused with anything else.
Consent is crucial to all sexual interactions and must be respected at all times. It is important to understand that consent can be withdrawn at any time, even if the person has already said yes. Withdrawing consent doesn’t always have to be a no. It might also sound like ‘I’m not sure,’ or ‘I’m not ready.’ Consent also means that the person giving consent must be fit to do so and not heavily influenced by drugs or alcohol. Lastly, the consent must be voluntary, and the person giving consent mustn’t feel pressured, coerced, or bribed into doing so. Again, you might want to establish a signal for consent to allow your partner to assess ongoing consent while you are wearing your ring gag.
By discussing what you do and don’t want to happen and setting clear boundaries beforehand, both people can go into the experience feeling comfortable and confident. Again, although you can set clear boundaries beforehand, ongoing consent and respect of safe words and safe signals are still crucial as your feelings can change in the moment.
As wearing a gag inhibits your ability to swallow, there are some choking risks involved. This could be from saliva, vomit if the person’s gag reflex is triggered, or anything else that is put into their mouth. Therefore, you should never leave a person wearing a mask unattended and always pay close attention to their breathing and signals. It is also a good idea to keep the individual in an upright position.
Aftercare is a great way to tend to both partner’s mental, physical, and emotional needs after practicing BDSM. Aftercare can involve practical things such as looking after any physical injuries or having something to eat or drink. It can also involve emotional care such as cuddling, talking, or giving reassurance. There are so many mental and physical changes that go on during the body during both vanilla and BDSM sex that can benefit from aftercare.
Worn over the mouth as opposed to in the mouth, muzzle gags muffle the wearer’s voice and limit the movement of their face.

Most ring gags are between 1.5 – 1.75 inches in diameter and sit behind the teeth, making the open diameter even smaller. Given the average diameter of an erect penis is 1.46 inches (calculated from data from Medical News Today), it is unlikely that most ring gags can be used for full oral sex. You may be able to achieve this if you have an extra-large ring or smaller than average penis. You can, however, experiment with inserting the tip of the penis, if possible, or using your fingers.
