A Smothering Box is a special furniture used to give oral pleasure.
Also called a "queening stool" or "smotherbox".
A queening stool is a low seat which fits over the submissive's face and contains an opening to allow oral-genital and/or oral-anal stimulation of the domme while seated. In modern BDSM vernacular, the queening stool allows open access to the crotch while seated. The position allows the pelvic floor muscles (PFM) to relax and therefore partly exposing the labia minora to intimate touch. The gluteus maximus, levator ani and puborectalis or sphincter recti muscles, the major muscles of the crotch, can relax and sag allowing easy access to the vagina and anus. The queening stool is also related to a "smotherbox," which also allows the person under the seat to be locked in place, restrained by the neck as in a set of stocks.

A smotherbox gives a more dramatic experience. Smotherboxes are usually custom made pieces of furniture that may have a special significance for their users. They are often made out of precious woods, with leather used for the seat. Many custom smotherboxes are done in baroque style and may look very dignified.
The smotherbox is placed on a stable surface. The cover (top half of the smotherbox) is open while the submissive lies down on their back and places their head in the box. When they are in position the cover is closed. The cover can have hinges or be a separate part. Locks may be used to emphasize the submissive position or the submissive's hands may be fastened above their head to the box.
