Muzzles in BDSM culture signify submission and humility when worn by submissive at the command of their dominant. A muzzle functions similar to a gag, except that the wearer is silenced by the jaw being restrained from opening, instead of an item being placed in the mouth. Muzzles can be more comfortable for submissives to wear, as it does not involve extending mouth and lips open or causing the mouth to drool by having foreign objects inserted. Fetish bondage muzzles consist of a material (usually leather) harness being fastened over the face, covering the jaw and tightened to the point where the mouth cannot be opened easily. A muzzle impedes speech less than a mouth bit or ball gag, the wearer can usually be understood (though words will be muffled).
There are only a few bondage muzzles displayed in this section. If you do not find what you are looking for, you may wish to search our Hoods and Goggles section, under the Hoods category. Here we have a great many hoods that also function like muzzles.
