Leather Vampire Gloves Review

December 15th, 09   •   Posted by Mistress Kay   •   12 Comments

Well, I ended up winning a really amazing prize from Naughty Eliot’s contest – Vampire Gloves from Eden’s Fantasy – an adult toy store! I had wanted a pair ever since I saw one at a play party, so it was a really happy win.

They did take awhile to ship, but that is most likely attributed to it being a contest winning. When they got here in their unmarked box, I was pleased to see that they were just sitting in the box with some plastic to keep it from moving too much. Unlike some leather products, there was also virtually no leather smell to the gloves either. I was a little disappointed to see some brown discolouration on one of the fingers of the glove, but it came off easily with some warm water.

The gloves are soft on the outside, but I was actually even more surprised when I slipped my hands into them. The inside of the gloves is very, very soft. It’s just the inside of the leather, but I’d never felt genuine, nicely treated leather before. It’s quite a pleasant sensation, and because of it, it’s actually quite hard to make your hands sweaty while inside of these gloves.

Just a picture to show you the gap between my wrist and the glove.

All of the stiching around the gloves is in great condition and appears like it will hold up to stress quite well. The gloves is quite flexible as well – I can almost ball my hands into fists while wearing it. However, I wouldn’t recommend doing that too often as I would imagine it’s not good for the tacks nor the stitching because the gloves were meant to be firm. At the bottom (near the part where you insert your hand into it) of the glove, there’s a button that can be fastened (quite easily) once your hand is already inside of the glove to keep it from slipping off. When I worked fast food, I wore the “Large” size gloves, and this pair of Large Vampire Gloves, actually left some room inside the glove near my wrist for me, so I’d say that they run slightly larger than size, but nowhere near the point where it would ever slide off. This could be attributed to the fact that I am female and have slightly smaller wrists than most males (their target audience, I would assume, with this product.)

As for the fun part – the actual spikes. When your hands are in the gloves, you can’t feel each individual spike. It appears that they put tacks into the glove then put another material inside the glove to help holder the tacks in place and keep the wearer from feeling uncomfortable with them. Some of the tacks were slightly bent when I received these gloves, but it’s not noticable in the slightest while using them. Doing a general count, there are twenty spikes on each finger (including the thumb) making for a total of one-hundred per glove. I’ve used these gloves quite a few times (mostly for nightly spankings), and they hold up quite well to mostly anything you give them. I’m pretty rough with them, and not a single spike has broken nor (from what I can tell) become bent.

As for how this feels – My boyfriend says it’s quite scratchy if you apply pressure while dragging them on him. If you want to lightly run the gloves over your partner, it will just be an interesting sensation. If you choose to use them for impact, as long as you’re moderately light, you can easily use these for spanking someone. It would protect your hands from hurting, and it takes quite a bit of the effort out of spanking. It also provides a unique sensation for the person receiving the spanking. As long as you do it light, you will not draw blood with these gloves. If you’re a sadist, however, these gloves would have the ability to draw blood if you’re really rough with them.

As for most couples, I’d say the best use out of these gloves would be for sensation. It’s great to blindfold your partner and gently glide these gloves over your partners skin. You can easily use just one finger along her/his spine for a great teasing sensation. However, if your partner doesn’t enjoy pain, I would not recommend spanking or any impact. When you first receive the gloves, however, make sure to try them on yourself so you know what’s a good amount of pressure to apply.

Lastly, these gloves are made out of genuine sheep-skin leather, so clean-up is pretty easy. (Honestly, unless you drew blood or plan on using these on a different partner, there’s really rarely any reason to clean it.) I would recommend you gently dampen a wash cloth with warm water and squeeze off the excess before cleaning the body of the glove. I would recommend a antibacterial disinfectant wipe to generally wipe down each of the individual spikes. I also recommend keeping these away from any bodily fluid or lube. I think both of those would easily be able to get into the seams of the gloves and be impossible to clean out. I think this goes without saying, but I’d say these are definitely something you should keep away from the genitals and never, ever use for insertion.

All-in-all, great gloves with great opportunities for use in the future. (Also one of my favorite toys for bedtime spankings.) They appear to be well-made, and I expect them to be holding up quite well in the future as well. You can get your own pair of vampire gloves from this really great sex toy shop.

I recently got a pair also, and while I’ve only had a couple of opportunities to use them with a partner so far I’m very pleased with them! They’re sturdy and comfortable, and I was surprised by how little pressure is needed for them to be effective. Maybe my partners and I are just lightweights, but I found that scratching with them quickly becomes too intense, even if it’s done gently. My preferred use (so far) is to wear one of the gloves while wielding a flogger with the other hand, and switch between flogging her back or ass and pressing the gloved hand into the same area. :-) I haven’t tried wielding a flogger with a gloved hand, but I’d be hesitant to do so for fear of damaging either the glove or the handle of the flogger.

My only complaint about them is a very minor one. When wearing both gloves it’s a bit tricky to take off the first glove. Mine fit quite snugly (though comfortably), so I have to carefully pull at the fingertips to loosen the glove before removing it. Trivial detail, though. They’re great.
