I used to covet jawbreakers when I was a kid. Like a lot of children I was a sugar fiend so I had as much as I could whenever I could. I remember going to a candy shop in Skagway and getting Alaska Jawbreakers (which were larger than the Texas ones, of course) and I would rub my tongue raw licking at those things for days on end, storing it in a plastic bag when not slowly eroding at the hard surface with my tongue.
My bygone fondness for jawbreakers compelled me to pick up the Kinklab Jawbreaker Gag, which Good Vibrations calls Sweet Lips Candy Ball Gag. The gag comes with a little cellophane wrapped around the candy ball ensuring freshness, which I have yet to take off, actually. I like the look of the cellophane, making it reminiscent of any little hard candy, and I figure that will keep the gag fresh for longer, instead of eroding at the big sugar ball.
Anyone who has seen the movie Jawbreaker will know about the hazards of sticking a jawbreaker in someone’s mouth. Due to the straps on either side of the head, however, there is little to no risk of the sugar ball getting lodged in someone’s mouth or throat, but there is still a risk of choking. There is a sticker on the jawbreaker that says: “WARNING! CHOKING HAZARD! By breaking the package seal and opening this product’s package, you acknowledge that you have read this disclaimer, and that you accept and understand that you shal (sic) be bound by is terms.” Basically, the company is covering their asses.
They have more in-depth information on what exactly the danger is in the Terms and Conditions and Disclaimer of Warranty: it will “produce more saliva than a regular gag and create a choking hazard if the person is unattended or inverted for any reason.” There is a bit of this same hazard with inverting especially for all other types of gags as well as special consideration to be taken any time there is potential obstruction to air flow as solid gags will do (as opposed to open mouth gags or special “breathable” gags). All I’m saying is: be aware of the risks and be as safe as possible.
The gag itself is quite comfortable, with a ridiculously wide adjustable length of nine inches it should fit most heads, and the vinyl strap is not scratchy but rather quite soft. The ball is a little on the large side for ball gags, nearly two inches around, I have a wide mouth so I didn’t have any problems with it but I have friends who would. Also due to the jawbreaker aspect of the ball itself there is absolutely no give to it and I would advise against doing any sort of impact play or anything that might make the wearer impulsively bite down while the gag is in, the massive amount of sugar will cause more than enough damage on your teeth without adding chipping to the mix.
While I definitely prefer other gags to this one for regular use, the Jawbreaker Gag is a unique experience that any gag-loving sugar fiend, current or former, will definitely get a kick out of. Much thanks to Good Vibrations for sending me the Sweet Lips Candy Ball Gag to review in exchange for my honest opinion!
