A pacifier


Contents

A dummy (known as a pacifier or soother in some countries) is a rubber, plastic, or silicone nipple given to an infant or other young child to suck upon. In its standard appearance it has a teat, mouth shield, and handle. The mouth shield and/or the handle is large enough to avoid the danger of the child choking on it or swallowing it.

Adult usage of pacifiers

Adult-sized pacifiers are used by some members of the Adult Baby community as ageplay props. They look like a baby pacifier sized up so that the curvature of the guard matches adult contours, and also have a larger, wider nipple. The nipples are often referred to as NUK5s, after the NUK brand of baby pacifiers manufactured by the German company MAPA Gmbh. If the nipple is coated with soap it can be used as a form of mouth soaping punishment. The guards typically have holes in them, making them easy to covert in order to form a gag as a part of diaper domination or bondage play.

They are sold under the name NUK Medicpro L or NUK Size 5.

Recent studies have also shown that pacifier use among adults may cut down or completely eliminate snoring.
