A submissive wearing a zentai and a full-faced leather bondage hood or "gimp mask" that features a ring attachment at the nose and barely visible nostril openings.

A bondage hood (also called a gimp mask or bondage mask) is a fetishistic hood.[1][2] It may be made from rubber, latex, PVC, spandex, darlexx or leather. Full-faced hoods are typically used for the practice of head bondage, and to restrain and objectify the wearer through depersonalization,[3] disorientation and/or sensory deprivation.[2]

The use of bondage hoods can be hazardous if breathing is impeded.[2]

Bondage hoods are frequently referenced in popular culture,[4][5][6] most notably in the film Pulp Fiction.[7]
