How to Choose the Right Panel Gag?

When choosing the right panel gag, it’s important to keep safety and comfort as the key features. Also, the design of the gag should fit the atmosphere and the style you want to achieve. Luckily, there are plenty of different styles and patterns to choose from.
But what exactly should you look for in a panel gag? Here are some tips:

Material safety: The area around the lips is very sensitive; when choosing a panel gag, look for soft and smooth padding on the inside. Faux leather, leather, and polyester are the most common and safe materials for panel gags.
The best material for ball/dildo gags is silicone or ABS plastic. However, many of them are made of rubber, which is also okay as long as this is non-toxic rubber.
Size/diameter: If you are a beginner, we do not recommend going for a big ball from the start. It can be uncomfortable for your jaw, but also it can cause a gag reflex if you are not used to this type of play. Just start slowly, take some time to try it out and get used to the feeling and listen to your body.
Adjustability: Make sure to look for a panel gag with buckles or velcro straps to fit place the gag comfortably around your head.

FAQ

How long can I wear panel gags for?
When starting with gags, we recommend wearing them for 10-15 min max. It’s important that you start slow and get used to the feeling and not overtire your jaw and mouth. It’s a good idea to agree on a time limit with your partner; it makes everything clear and safe.
What is the best material for panel gags?
The best material for panels is leather, faux leather, or polyester. If you want more comfort around the lips, look for additional padding or plush on the inside. When it comes to balls/dildos- silicone is always the best; ABS plastic is a bit harder but also body-safe. Avoid PVC at all costs! It’s not body-safe and can leech harmful chemicals into your body.
How to make a panel gag?
We do not recommend making your own gags because it is a choking hazard. There are many very cheap and safe gags you can buy everywhere. It’s way easier and safer for everyone!
What is the difference between ball gags and panel gags?
The ball gag allows the wearer to see all the facial expressions and drooling, and they can still make indiscernible noises like moans and grunts. While panel gags are normal gags with a panel that covers the whole area of the mouth, making the wearer quieter and more discreet. The facial expressions and drooling are hidden.

What is a panel gag

It is the type of gag that is meant to cover the mouth. It usually features a wide panel (typically leather-like) and a rubber ball or a dildo gag on the inside. The designs of panel gags vary from more delicate mask-like to heavier and wider panels or hoods. The purpose of the panel gag is to add more speech restrictions and to mute more sounds from the sub. It adds sensual deprivation of lips and mouth that can heighten the sensual experience. The panel also covers any drooling that is typical for other gags and hides most of the facial expressions

A face mask with a dildo may look innocent but it’s very practical. Whether you would like to try gags, but you don’t want to commit or you would like something more discreet and easier to hide, this is a good choice. It could also be an accessory for wearing secretly in public.
The length of the dildo is 2,5″ making it perfect for beginners to try. This mask is super easy to wear, it has adjustable strap fastening that will fit everyone.
On the safety side, the dildo is made of nontoxic rubber, however, it may still be porous, so keep that in mind when cleaning it.

I am not a big fan of the material of this gag. The rubber claims to be non-toxic, but keep in mind that it can still be porous.

This product will be a great choice if you like a heavy gag that gives your sub a helpless look.
I really like the strong design, and it is comfortable to wear, but it may be a bit too massive for smaller faces. The silicone dildo is bigger than usual, it will please more advanced users, but I would be extra careful if you are a beginner. The padding on the inside is smooth on the skin and very easy to clean.
Overall, the look of this gag is heavy and powerful, but in reality, it’s quite comfortable for a gag this size and easy to wear and maintain.

We have prepared for you an extra section for more intense muzzles with gags.
If you want your sub to be super quiet with some extra mouth occupation during BDSM sessions, you will be satisfied with our founds.

Gag Safety

With gags comes big responsibility. BDSM can be very fun as long as everyone keeps all the safety measures. Gags bring the risk of choking, so you have to be extra careful when choosing the right size, material, or fit. NEVER forget about choosing a safe word (in this case safe signal) and ALWAYS respect it. Never put anyone in danger just for your own pleasure. Here is a little reminder on the most important gag safety rules.

Comfort

Comfort

Comfort

Make sure that the gag sits properly on the face. Not too loose, not too tight, just right to breathe easily and to enjoy the further play with no discomfort.
Also, be careful with the size of the gag and how deep it goes, choking with a gag on is not a pleasant experience.

Safe signal

Safe signal

Safe signal

It can be blinking, a special sound, kicking the air, or dropping a specific object from your hand. Choose anything that will be easily noticeable by your partner.

Time

Time

Time

In general, gags are not supposed to be worn for a long time, especially for beginners.
Try to set a short time limit at first to avoid any discomfort or jaw pain.

Never leave your sub alone with a gag on!

Never leave your sub alone with a gag on!

This point is extra important. Gags have a high risk of choking, so never leave your sub alone with a gag on. Even if it’s just for a moment, don’t put anyone at risk, it’s better to take it off for a moment and give the mouth and jaw a little break.

How to Use Panel Gags?

Panel gags are simple to wear and maintain. You can use them in many ways, as a punishment for a submissive, wear them with other restraints to enhance submission, or wear it to stifle moans as you play with your sub. Some of the gags can have an extra ring for other attachments like leads. Experiment with panel gags as much as you want, but remember to be extra careful! It’s important that a wearer feels comfortable and there are no breathing issues.
Here is a short to-do and don’t list for panel gags. Whether you are an experienced gag wearer or a beginner, it’s important to make sure you follow all the rules for maximum safety and comfort.

Don’t even start putting a gag on, if you haven’t chosen a safe signal. Safety first. Don’t put anyone at risk, always have respect for safety and react to a safe signal right away!

Cleaning

How to Use Panel Gags?

Clean your sex toys after every use! Bacterias spread fast in warm and moist environments, just like the mouth. We recommend sterilizing the gag each time.

How to Use Panel Gags?

How to Clean Panel Gags

Just like any other sex toy, remember to clean your gag after every use. You can use hot water and fragrance-free soap. When it comes to panels, simply follow the instructions provided by the producer because different materials require specific care. If you have a leather panel gag, remember not to clean it with soaps or detergents, rather use a clean, soft, damp cloth. Let it dry naturally, not with hot heat. Also, do not store leather in a plastic bag; we recommend using a cloth bag instead.

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.
