I hope that you all are enjoying the new BDSM toy reviews I am doing I thought it would be nice to add a little variety. Today’s toy is a 16-Inch Oval Leather Paddle, from Sensual Direct. Despite what it says on their product page, this paddle does not have fleece on one side, it’s all leather. Being always skeptical of the quality of bondage products that come from sex toy retailers, in this case I was pleasantly surprised. It seems quite sturdy and well made.
As far as I can tell, it’s a few layers of heavy leather that have been sewn together. It does not have any sort of rigid core, which is both good and bad. Good because this paddle is supple enough to be used much like a crop, where the flick of your wrist is enough to get a very excellent effect. Little effort required for maximum results.
It’s bad because after extended use, the paddle could become weak and floppy. However, for the price, you’ll get your moneys worth before that happens.
Personally, I am partial to a paddle with a bit of bend. We have a wooden paddle that I absolutely loath because there is no give to it. This paddle certainly packs some ouch, but it seems less intense, at least to start. Maybe that has to do with the leather, I am not sure.
There is also that special sound that leather makes when it meets naked skin. Yum.
Jack used this paddle on me for about half an hour, and I enjoyed it a great deal. You can wield it gently enough for warm up, and then continue on to a harder paddling without having to switch implements.
It’s also not so big that it’s heavy or difficult to handle. I would certainly recommend this item to both novice spankers and the more experienced players. If you want to add a little to the sensation play however, you might want to try out the paddle with fleece on one side.
