The Purpose of Gimp Masks
Believe it or not, the use of the term “gimp” to refer to a sex slave dressed up in full bondage gear only dates back to the year 1994, with the movie Pulp Fiction. There was a single scene in the film that involved a man referred to as “the gimp” who was dressed up in full bondage suit and a mask. For whatever reason, the name stuck, and since then people have called certain pieces of bondage gear as “gimp masks” and “gimp suits.”
Gimp masks is just a general term that’s used to refer to any sort of hood or mask that’s made out of latex or a similar fetish material. Sometimes these masks will cover the entire face but most of the time they have holes for the eyes and the mouth. Some masks combine the best of both worlds – they have zippers over the eyes and mouth so that the wearer can easily be deprived of their ability to see or speak when needed, but they can function normally when it’s more convenient. In gimp masks without any other openings, there will usually nostril holes or a breathing tube so that the wearer doesn’t suffocate.
Gimp masks serve a pretty unique purpose in bondage scenes that no other piece of fetish gear can really replicate. While it’s true that they have some practical uses like taking away the wearer’s ability to see, their main purpose is to symbolize a stripping away of identity of the person wearing the mask. In other words, since the person wearing the mask is essentially faceless, it becomes easier for others to see them (and for them to see themselves) as a sexual object instead of a person.
Since all BDSM games are based an exchange of power between the dominant partner and the submissive one, gimp masks have an important role to play. This can be especially true for romantic couples, who might have trouble separating themselves from their normal relationship and entering the correct mental state for BDSM activities.
