Notes from a kinky nomad

toy review — paddles, oh my

Here is another one of those toys that I just melt over — the Fetish Fantasy studded Ace of Spades paddle. The heavy leather paddle is rimmed with metal studs and has the cutest heart shaped cutout in the middle. These are lovely decorative elements but they also serve a practical purpose — the cutout lowers air resistance making this toy easier to swing for harder blows (it also leaves cute, heart shaped, welts). The metal studs leave little round welts when you hit just right, and I am told by the object of my affection that the cold studs are a nice tactile contrast especially on hot bruised skin. I can’t seem to find this specific toy on (maybe Domina can help me?!), but this toy looks very similar.

To be sure this toy is mean. The heart shape is a cruel tease…like so many of my favorite toys, it lulls you into a false sense of security before showing its true nature and making you beg and plead for mercy.

If you are looking for something a little less intense try the fantasy patent paddle by Fetish Fantasy. This stylish vinyl paddle lacks the weight to cause real damage but it’s still stingy enough to leave you smarting. It had a comfortably shaped handle, and a cute two-tone design. The lighter more flexible materials puts this toy squarely in the stingy category. It’s a great warm up toy too if you’re working your way up to something heavier like the Ace of Spades above.
