Mouth gags are a mainstay  in the bondage and BDSM world as they add to the feelings of helplessness or control that the submissive or dominant partner seeks. Despite being commonly seen in the movies, gags are ineffective at actually silencing the wearer but obviously prevent talking.

A common idea is wearing a gag for humiliation purposes. One person preventing another’s coherent speech or causing them to drool uncontrollably shows their power over them.
