Crops and Canes

BDSM crops and canes are highly effective disciplinary tools

crops and canes

What kind of sensation would you want from your riding crops and canes?

Caning has two distinct sensations: ‘thuddy’ and stinging. However, there are variations within these sensations, since changing the length and design changes the sensation. While we associate canes with stinging, a heavier and more rigid cane produces a more powerful thud. The weight, length, and diameter of the cane all influence the sensation: thicker, shorter, and wider shafts produce a deeper thud against the skin. The sting increases when the shaft is lighter, longer, and more flexible.

Leather braided canes, braided over a strong or flexible fiberglass shaft, look the part and are an ideal choice for administering severe corporal punishment.

BDSM riding crop is yet another peculiar beast. They’re fun instruments for keeping your partner ‘in line’ during foreplay with gentler strokes. The shaft flexibility of riding crops varies. Consider a less flexible riding crop for a more sensuous game or a more flexible one for a stingier touch. Before striking your partner with a riding crop, remain mindful like you would with most impact toys.

Always remember the safety precautions:

  • hits should be parallel to one another (damage is more severe with crossed injuries).
  • keep your first aid kit in easy reach, complete with latex gloves and antibacterial cleaner.
  • do not use porous canes with multiple partners.
  • clean your equipment.
