A muzzle gag is a form of gag used in BDSM activities. It is so called because it resembles a muzzle used on animals, with a flexible pad which straps over the mouth, and sometimes also around the cheeks and chin. Muzzle gags are effective since they restrict the movement of the jaw and muffle the sound that comes out of the cheeks.
Safety risks associated with gags in general also apply to this form of gag.
Muzzle gags have a strong psychological effect on some people, because of the association of being restrained in a way generally associated with animals.
A panel gag looks similar but normally has a ball fitted on the inside.
