Open and Alert

I really like the Scandal line from Cal Exotics. The twenty items in this collection are all stylish in red and black, and mix and match wonderfully. This month, as part of Cal Exotics’ Sexpert program, I received the Scandal Open Mouth Gag With Clamps for free to review.

collarboxThe Scandal Open Mouth Gag with Clamps comes in a large cardboard box, with a picture of the product on the front and back, each picture showing a different way it can be used. The back of the box also contains product information in several languages. Inside the box are the gag, clamps on chains (the chains protected by wrapping), and an extra ring for the gag.

The stitching is secure all around. There are two strap pieces to the gag: the adjustable side, with 8 holes, is about 13 ½” long, and the buckle side (including the buckle) is about 13”.  With 8 The hardware on the straps is nickel-free iron, and the buckles are a nickel-free alloy.

The rubber ring is best if you want to be able to close your mouth or aren’t used to the hardness or size of the metal ring. A smaller ring can also be used in place of the rings provided.

With the included rings, the gag can be adjusted from about 19 ½” up to about 23 ½”, so you should be able to get a comfortable fit. Additionally, if you want to remove the gag, it can be dropped down onto the neck as a loose collar.

The chains for the clamps are about 23” long, and are easy to attach and remove from the gag. The attached clamps are about 2 ¼” long, and are made of nickel-free iron. The tips are padded with phthalate free PVC, and the clamps open to about ¾”, so they will work on larger nipples.  Each clamp also has an adjustable screw to change the degree of tightness when the clamp is used.

The gag itself can be cleaned with a damp cloth if necessary, and it can also be washed in a lingerie bag on the gentle cycle in the washer and line dried. The pieces can be stored in the box, but can also easily be stored in a bag or flat in a drawer.

So, Did It Work?
This is a fun set! As I’ve mentioned in previous reviews of the Scandal line, I love the color combination – red and black, for me, is classy and erotic – as it goes with so much of the lingerie I have.  The gag is adjustable, and once we figured out the best angle, it was easy to secure in place.

collaroutofboxI love that this comes with two rings, and that other sizes of rings can be used. While I often think I have a big mouth, the metal 1 ½” ring is just a bit large for me to wear comfortably for long periods of time. Shorter periods I can do, but it’s great to have the option to use a smaller one. The rubber ring I also liked, as it let me close my mouth when I needed to, when the play wasn’t as rough.  This was easy to use as a loose-fitting collar as well, and no problem to get it back into position as a gag.

I’ve never had a gag that had attachments for anything, but being able to have the nipple clamps attached (or not, as the mood strikes) is something else I like about this set. The chains aren’t too heavy to make wearing it uncomfortable, and I particularly like that the clamps can be spread wide to accommodate my nipples – I often have trouble with clams on sets because they are too shallow or don’t open wide enough for me to use.  These were comfortable to wear for long periods of time, stimulating, and, since they’re detachable, I can use them with other collars.

Thank you to Cal Exotics for sending me the Scandal Open Mouth Gag With Clamps to review! This is a great addition to the Scandal line, which includes a Hogtie Set, Collar With Leash, Bed Restraints, and many more pieces, and it’s one I’d recommend if you like open-mouth gags and also enjoy using nipple clamps.
