Definition - What does Tape gag mean?
Kinkly explains Tape gag
Some submissives may be forced to wear a tape gag as a type of punishment, especially during humiliation play. A tape gag can also add authenticity to a roleplaying scene, such as a kidnapping or break-and-enter scene or a rape fantasy.
Tape gags are popular because they are inexpensive to obtain, readily available, and easy to apply. However, tape gags can be easily removed if the wearer blows on the tape or wiggles their mouth around. Their effectiveness can be increased if made from a strip of tape long enough to wrap around the wearer’s head. A gag that runs underneath the jaw, from ear to ear, can also be very effective as it restricts jaw movement. Tape gags are most effective when combined with stuff gags, although this also increases the safety risks as the stuffing can pose a choking hazard.
It’s important to note that tape gags may irritate the sensitive skin of the lips. Tape gags may also inflame dormant fever blisters or cold sores. When tape gags are wrapped around the head, they may tear out hair when removed. The safety concerns surrounding tape gags are increased the longer the gag is left on.
