Spanking Paddles

The most versatile BDSM toys around are spanking paddles 

Paddles used in BDSM play scenarios

We associate spanking paddles with wider impact and ‘thuddy’ sensation, although some of them can and will deliver a satisfying sting. Small paddles will sting, but their larger counterparts deliver deep and ‘thuddy’ pain. This sensation depends on the material it’s made with and size.

Leather is a popular choice for a quality tool. As a natural material, with its smooth, pliable surface and earthy smell, it guarantees to get you in the spanking mood! The resulting sensation will err on the stingy side (depending upon the heaviness of the leather and weight, and the blow delivered).

Wooden or thick fiberglass paddles are the best if you are looking for intense pain with every strike.

Rigid, hard, and often heavy, this unyielding device is best suited to fleshier regions such as the buttocks. It will hit the bottom hard, delivering a real thud that warms and soon turns into a fiery sting.

Safe use and care of your paddles

Check that the surface/edges are smooth and do not have splinters.

Avoid hitting with the edge of your tool.

Never strike the joints (ankles, knees, elbows)

Do not share paddles made from porous materials with multiple partners.

Clean paddles after each use according to materials safety, using antibacterial wipes or wiping with gentle soap and water, followed by drying.
