Cleave Gags VS. Tape Gags

The following topic is one of opinion and just observation. and entertainment purposes only.....

There has always been a long debate regarding what type of gag is better in TV or Movies... I guess we could all ask - What gag is more believable or practical? To answer this question we must analize with visuals and video evidence that I've posted below and look at each ones pros and cons...

Lets start with the CLEAVE GAG...

The cleave gag is a commonly well known gag seen or used in Movies or Television shows. Depending on how thick the material is, it can be believable... A very thin, or loosely tied cleave gag will definately not work as a believeable gag. It doesn't quiet the hostage/captive very well at all. The Raiders of the Lost Arc scene with Karen Allen, although a classic scene, did not produce a believalbe gag..

A more believable cleave gag is shown from the previously posted Combat Killers featuring Marlene Dauden. This scene showcased one of the tightest and realistic gags ever shot in a film. The gag is pulled so tight that it forces her mouth open and pinches the corners of her mouth uncomfortably leaving little unable to get it out of her mouth. Great stuff!!

I place Mz. Dauden's scene at the top of a very long list. A list I will post sometime in the near future, based on my personal opinions and why....

In this video, the girl is cleave gagged so VERY tightly that she cannot utter a word.... You can see how she sells her discomfort by the grunts and mmphs she makes....

Lets analize the cleave gag. Depending on how thick the material is, it can be believable. Commercial Bondage web site feature photos and videos of various types of bondage... I for one collect the type that simulate the claccis damsel in distress that remind me of Moveis and TV.... Some of these sites showcase really great cleave gags and readily accessible... Cleave gags work best with thicker material and a knot tied in the center which is known as a knoted cleave gag.
Knoted Cleave Gag...

The knot fills the mouth more and muffles the sound the gagged individual is trying to make.

NOTE: If a Cleave Gag is tied loose enough, it can be expelled from the mouth with the tongue...

As far as looks go, I prefer the look of the Cleave gag. It's meant for more discomfort in most cases and render speech difficult, and if used right, it can at least keep the boundee busy if they focus on trying to remove it.. But can muffle and quiet the sounds and make speech difficult... But cannot silence anyone from talking completely...

Cleave Gags involving Mouth Packing or Stuffing....
This can be very dangerous and should not be attempted without supervision...

Mouth Packing Cleave Gags are probably the most effective when it comes to Cleave Gags.. Cloth is placed into the mouth and then held in place with a Cleave Gag....

TAPE GAG

Tape Gags... Are also seen in movies and TV. When a damsel is kidnapped and bound, it's common for the kidnapper to tape their hands behind their backs, tape their ankles and tape gag them... sometimes Rope and tape are used together... A single strip of tape covering the mouth will NOT last long at all. The gagged person can simply either get the tape wet from saliva, or open their mouth. For those that swear by the tape gag. The human jaw will over power Tape anyday of the week!!!!!





That's not to say an actress can't make it convincing.. but come on! Really???!! A lot of shows will showcase a single strip of TAPE that doesn't even adhear to the mouth.
 
This will NOT shut anyone up . realistically.. But it can be used to look convincing...
The Duct Tape Wrap around... The following 2 photo are really great examples of well done Duct tape gags... in some cases the captive is more silent than she would be if she were cleave gagged....
 

Duct Tape has been used to wrap around the persons head in TV and Movies and can be very well done and convincing.

This Model "Dixie" has her mouth packed with cloth and then Duct Tape is wound around her head TIGHTLY! rendering her to make nothing but grunts and incoherent sounds... This method is also great and convincing... and can distress the captive much like a tight Cleave gag can..

Additionally, Tape is a great tool for bondage - there's nothing like the sound of a woman being taped up with duct tape... The loud ripping sound as she tries to call out and the tape is wrapped and wound around her hands, feet, and legs.... then she's left to struggle against the tape that secures her tightly.... with a good tape gag.. Check this example out....

All In All... My personal favorite is the Cleave Gag Hands Down.... a tight cleave gag is a more convincing, and believable gag to see in movies or the fetish all together...But a good tape tie and gag won't hurt from time to time...
