My master has recently bought me a rubber ball gag, and I love it to bits. It's my first 'proper' one, and prior to this I've usually only been made to wear a scarf of some kind tied around my mouth, or more often have my mouth taped shut. I am generally fine with this gag, but one drawback I've found is the fact that my mouth fills up with saliva, and with the ball in place, this is extremely difficult to swallow down. On one occasion I was finding it difficult to breathe as a result, and when I tried to swallow it down, I choked on it. This was understandably scary, especially as my master had to be in a different room at that moment. He came straight back to me the second he heard me choking, and luckily I had recovered by the time he reached me, but it was still pretty frightening. Has anyone else had any similar experiences, or can you provide any advantages and disadvantages of other types of 'proper' gags?
