OTM (over-the-mouth) gag - This type of gag is often described in fiction as preventing the subject from speaking, using soft materials like scarves and bandannas. In practice it does not silence the subject very effectively. The long scarf or bandanna is pulled over the subject's mouth and tied at the back of his/her head.

Cleave gag - A more effective variant of the OTM gag is called the cleave gag. Instead of being tied over the person's mouth, the scarf or cloth is pulled between his or her teeth. While such a gag of thin material is not very effective, a thick scarf can be used to hold his or her mouth open, and the tighter that gag is tied the better it works, although no matter how tightly it is tied, the gagged person can usually spit it out.

Ball gag - A ball gag is usually made of rubber or silicone in the shape of a sphere with a strap passing through its diameter. Ball gags are mostly used in BDSM activities

Ring gag - is a similar device to a ball gag, except that the ball is replaced by a hollow ring. This is both safer from the viewpoint of preventing the risk of choking, and also allows limited access to the mouth. A ring gag will cause the subject to drool uncontrollably, this often being the purpose of the gag.

Tube gag - uses a tube instead of a ring. It allows easy breathing but not much mouth access. It is possible to have a tube through the ball of a ball gag.

Bit gag - bit gag bears a passing visual resemblance to the bit used in a bridle for a horse, and much of its sexual value stems from fetishistic symbolism in human pony play.
