Do you really need muffler gaskets for slip ons?

I decided to purchase some dan motto slip ons for now and when installing then noticed that it wasn't air tight when i tightened the muffler band. When the bike is on i could feel some exhaust escaping from the joint. Bike runs fine, sound loud (which I like). What are some of the drawbacks of not having a gasket there. Would appreciate some feedback.

Some muffler/exhaust putty should seal that up.
