Gas masks

A gas mask is a mask worn on the face to protect the body from airborne pollutants and toxic materials. The mask forms a sealed cover over the nose and mouth, but may also cover the eyes and other vulnerable soft tissues of the face. Some gas masks are also respirators, though the word gas mask is often used to refer to military equipment.

The meaning of gas masks in BDSM can vary. It can be for fetish, punishment, rewarding or style. Generally the gas mask is used in combination with a latex outfit. Fetishists may like gas masks because of their shape, breathing sound, mystery look, enclosure, identity privacy, protection feeling.

Gas masks are very versatile gear in BDSM. They can be used for identity privacy on plays, enclosure punishment together with other bondage equipment, dehumanization / decharacterization or can be used in breathplay to alter the air supply of the wearer. If it covers the eyes and the eye holes are then painted or covered, it makes an effective blindfold.
