I have had this little flogger for a while now, a gift from my Benjamin to add alongside my other dymondwood toys (Sasha, Tempest, Scylla and Charybdis), and I have always been undecided on what to name it. However, recently I have been referring to it as “Pooky”, mainly because (like Garfield) I believe it is such a sweet name for something so cute, but also (unlike Garfield) a very ironic name considering that the hard leather falls can pack quite a sting for something so very small and seemingly innocuous.
If it has not been apparent from my gallery or previous blog posts; One of my favorite BDSM activities is impact play. Particularly floggers.
However, impact play can take many forms; Whips, floggers, canes and paddles to name the most common.
Personally, I tend to use paddles as warm-up tools before moving on to heavier impact play like whips or canes, or I will use them as an accent to a session of spanking to save my hand (and claws) from prolonged impact play. I consider the humble paddle to be a very handy addition and ‘must-have’ to any arsenal of BDSM toys.
The Uberkinky Fetish Fantasy Designer Paddle is probably one of the lightest paddles I have ever used. They have opted for a handle which has been created completely out of hard leather and has no wooden or metal core; the reason for its lightness and slightly ‘whippy’ effect when using it heavily.
It’s rounded edges are an added bonus for those who prefer to simply heat the center of each rear-end cheek and while it sometimes feels a little flimsy when in use, it definitely makes an accurate and stingy impact.
The hard leather is of a smooth surface, making it easy to wipe clean and sterilize and a leather cord is supplied for when it is simply needed to hang on a wall or belt for show, as a constant reminder of the last play, or as a visual deterrent for any menials who tend to be a little bratty.
But there is one thing I rate incredibly highly on this item, more than anything else, and that is the sound: this paddle made a wonderful slap which echoed throughout my dungeon.
I have a feeling that I will be using this little toy quite often.
