I got this as an alternative gag because frankly, i find ball gags to be pretty unsexy.
Every time the hubby and I would play with a gag, I always felt really unattractive with this big ol' ball sticking out of my mouth...Mental images of a pig at a luau with the apple in its maw come to mind... NOT SEXY
The first thing he said when I pulled it out of the box was... "That looks like a horse bit." Thanks hun, another farm animal!
The straps on this gag really impressed me, from the picture it looks like they could be wimpy printed polyester, but in actuality they are really nice embroidered damask! Go figure!
The bar itself is a little larger than I would have liked (and in keeping with the horse bit feel). Now I've never been told I have a small mouth, but it was JUST SLIGHTLY larger than I was hoping it would be. There is also no way to secure it other than the ties, which for a lady with long hair and a ponytail is a rather constant problem when it comes to gags.
Overall this really won me over as far as quality goes, and I would recommend this as another option for anyone who wants a non-ball gag. It's still not perfect, and we're still not fully off-the-farm, but definitely getting closer!
