I love my Beginner Ball Gag from Tantus. This is a wonderful ball gag for beginners for several reasons that I highlight in this review. I really liked that the gag is made of Tantus Silicone that’s tasteless, odorless and body safe. This product is not only easy to use, it is also easy to clean. The silicone ball detaches from the leather straps via two metal snaps, and the straps velcro behind one’s head.

As a newbie to wearing gags, I appreciated that there was some give with this product, meaning I could adjust my mouth if needed. The silicone ball was somewhat squishy, and so I could bite into it when I wanted to. I could open or close my jaw depending on what felt the most comfortable–indeed I found myself alternating between fully opening my jaw and biting down onto the stem. I appreciated having this freedom.

Another aspect of flexibility comes with how adjustable the velcro secures behind my head. It can be kept somewhat loose or snug and it likely fits around a range of heads. The only drawback with the fastener being a thin velcro strap was that it can come undone easily if I pushed the ball out of my mouth. I was able to pop the ball out regardless of how tight the straps were secured around my head. This might be considered a benefit to beginners, because at least they know they can spit it out right away should they want or need to.

I really enjoyed wearing this gag because it is rather comfortable. I liked having some freedom with adjusting my mouth, although I still appreciated the inability to communicate through speech. I swallowed my questions while wearing the gag, which forced me to be more present to the adventure at hand.

Here are the ball gag’s details:

  • Gag Material: 100% Ultra Premium Silicone ball gag
  • Diameter: 1.6″
  • Length: 2.5″
  • Color Options: Black, Red, Pink
  • Strap Material: leather strap with velcro

At this point in time I see myself preferring this ball gag over any other larger, firmer ones. A benefit of a larger ball gag would be the more restrictive experience with having a ball in one’s mouth and not being able to adjust one’s jaw. But, I’m still a beginner with gags and I find even this beginner gag tests my comfort levels. I think if there was one feature of this product that I might change it would be to create straps that can be fastened more securely. Additionally I think I would love a gag with a phallic shape.

As a final note, this gag is made of silicone like most of Tantus’ other products. This silicone is hypoallergenic and free of phthalates. The ball gag is also boilable, bleachable, and dishwasher safe. If the leather strap needs to be cleaned, it can be spot cleaned with leather cleaner.

Update: As a follow-up to the last time I wore this gag, somehow I accidentally bit a hole into it. I hadn’t realized this occurred at first, but apparently one can bite too hard onto this ball gag.

A big thanks to Tantus for sending me this Beginner Ball Gag in exchange for my honest review. xoxo
