Rubber, leather or latex - here's what you need to know about masks

Animal masks or kinky gas masks - you decide!

There are thousands of ways to work masking into your kink. Gas masks, for example, are a relatively common fetish; the look and feel of wearing one is highly evocative, and they have a wonderful way of making you feel cut off from the outside world. Gimp and latex masks are iconic to many kinksters, and leather masks are a versatile go-to for all kinds of people in the BDSM community. Other prominent options are medical and animal masks, which each belong to its own fetish play. Masquerade ball styled events are pretty standard in BDSM clubs, and there's something sexy about the allure of a good mask in many contexts!

What are the best masks for BDSM?

It depends on the purpose for it. Some are used for preserving anonymity, others are used to dehumanise the wearer. Any mask that covers a good amount of your face is good for the first purpose but for dehumanisation something more specific such as a gas mask, animal mask or gimp mask would be best.

What is a gimp mask?

Also called a bondage hood or bondage mask, they are designed to dominate, depersonalise and sexually objectify the consenting wearer. They are often made of rubber or leather but can be other materials such as spandex and often are worn with a full body suit. They are synonymous with BDSM as they are often use in movies and TV programmes to indicate someone is kinky.

Why are masks so often used in BDSM?

They have multiple uses, some can be used for bondage, such as hoods, others can be used for breath play like gas masks. And others just enhance a role, puppy and kitty masks for example. And of course, they help to preserve anonymity which can be very important to some kinksters.

Do Dominants wear masks?

    As someone who has been in the Community since they where 21.
    I have been on this learning and passion to understand how to be a great leader. Am I perfect? The answer is no I make mistakes and still today try to be humble enough to grow as a Dominate. As now I grow I have not mastered one single path alone but have much experience to look upon as a whole. I first began as a submissive to understand both sides of a coin one must study both sides of the lifestyle. In my own opinion it has made me a better Dominate. I am Heterosexual after being sexually abused at a young age it has totally turned me off of socializing. I was sexually active up to that point and it took 5 years of being lead by some one with great values to teach me how to be trusting again. I Just came out and told my family less then a few years ago about my sexual abuse after hiding it for almost 40 years. So I must get to know someone is the first step into what I am looking for. I am a Dominate not a person that will pay to play or give you money. The community today is so lost in values its very Insulting. It is one thing If I want to do something nice for you. This attitude of pay me ore else is far from the true Values of why we are here. There is no greater disrespect then subbing from the bottom up. Discipline and respect should be what you truly seek as a submissive. The moment you lose these by being judgmental shallow and picky. Are you putting you best foot forward? Your to old for me or I have to be attracted to that person. I have heard it all but then they find that Finance Sugar daddy or momma but they lack the skills to be a Master/Dominate or they get hurt abused and neglected. Truth is you should be careful there are a lot of pretenders calling them self Dominate or Mistress.

    Similar to Masks

    Gas masks are a common sight in fetish clubs the world over. On the surface, it might seem like an odd choice. Why pick a symbol of war that isn't even bondage-related? The more you think about it, though, the more sense it makes. For one thing, a gas mask looks a little like a human face - but is completely anonymising and dehumanising. For another, the breathing tube allows for intense breath play controlled entirely by whoever is holding the other end. There's also a more obvious aesthetic appeal. These masks play into a specific alternative 'look' that many people find appealing. Whatever your reason for wanting one, make sure you find one without filters intended for wearing rather than as a relic - and do a little research to make sure you're getting one with all the features that interest you.
    Animal play is also known as pet play and involves a submissive person taking on the role of a particular animal. Most of these roles are pets such as puppies, kittens and ponies but rarer animals can by imitated too. A dominant who looks after a person during animal play is known as an owner or a trainer. They may get their pet to accept treats from their hand, crawl on all fours or wear a lead for example. It all depends on what kind of animal their pet is.
    Pretty much everyone has some kind of clothing that they're turned on by, whether when worn by them or when worn by someone else. For a lot of people that clothing is a little risque: maid-style outfits, or pleated schoolgirl skirts, or stockings and suspenders. For some it's a whole other fetish in its own right, such as PVC corset and latex catsuits. Whatever your preference, there will be something out there that turns you on - so get shopping! Our magazine section has plenty of articles on how to find clothes you love, even in sizes that are sometimes difficult to track down or styles that aren't always super common.
