Choosing the right sized mouth gag for your needs
When it comes to size, there are a few measurements that you need to know about. First of all, don’t worry about the straps too much because they are usually adjustable and can stand firmly on almost every person’s head. Rubber masks are stretchable, so you can easily fit those as well. Next comes the diameter of a ball. Figure out how comfortable you are with having your mouth is open wide during your fetish play and start from there. Small balls are usually the best for beginners, but if you are experienced, you can select the big mouth gag. Dildo mouth gags have various dildo sizes attached to them, the most usual being around 5 or 6 inches, while others are sold smaller. Open mouth gags are usually made from stretchable materials such as silicon they can be adjustable too. There are also dog bone gags, and some rind gags have wider, while others have only smaller openings.

Almost all sex toy sizes depend on your comfort and experience levels, so start from there.
Choosing the right material, shape and texture
There are several materials used in the making of mouth gags, and different parts are often made from different materials. For example, the straps are almost always made from leather. As we already mentioned this, leather mouth gag provides the most reliable material, but it can also serve for esthetic purposes. The balls can be made from silicon, but you can also find ones that are from steel. There are also breathable balls, and some bible parts can be made from leather as well. Open mouth gags are made from silicone since they provide the feel of a real mouth that stretches and that is soft. O-ring gags are more often made from steel rather than silicon. They serve the purpose similar to a cock ring, but they do not stretch so you might want to start with adjustable ones in case you are not sure about the right diameter. Gag dildos often use the same material just like the regular dildos. Open mouth gags usually look like the real human mouth, and the colors of them are either pink or red. There are also some red gag balls, but you can find them in a myriad of colors really. As far as the texture goes, the balls are almost always smooth, while dildos tend to mimic the look of a real penis.
