Paddle with Black Faux Fur

Showing the paddle

The 12″ Flogging Paddle with Black Faux Fur is a paddle manufactured by Spartacus and sold by Vibrator.com. As could be guessed, the paddle is a foot long and about two inches in width. The majority of the paddle is made from leather, and there’s a hole at the end of the paddle for the hanging strap that’s also made of leather. The fur on the front of the paddle is faux fur. The fur covers everything except the handle.

There isn’t any specific packaging for this paddle. There’s just a small tag attached to the hanging loop of the paddle. The inside of the tag gives you the features of the paddle. The hanging loop works great for storage up on a closet doornail or something.

The paddle seems to be made of some pretty good quality. It looks like two pieces of strong leather have been tied together to make the body of this paddle. The stitching seems strong and none of it is coming undone. The outer edges of the leather have been nicely sanded to make the edges pretty smooth. (Your fingers will notice certain bumps, but it won’t scratch the skin at all.) The only thing I’m a bit disappointed about is that the faux fur layer is just a layer that’s sitting up on top of the rest of the layers. It’s a very thin layer – just about 1/5 of the width as the other two leather layers. However, the fur does appear to be stitching on as well as glued, and while a bit of the glue is giving out on one spot on my paddle, the stitching is still holding that spot amazingly well. I have no doubt that the faux fur is going to end up staying on the paddle with no problem. As a note, the hanging strap of this paddle does tend to leave some fuzzies the first couple times you run your hands over it, so be aware for that.

This paddle handles really nicely. Because the paddle is so light-weight and small, your wrist is not going to get tired from wielding this one. The handle of the paddle is small enough to be comfortable in your wrist but still large enough to make the paddle easy to handle. I have large feminine hands, but smaller hands as well as male hands should find this paddle extremely comfortable in the hands. SInce this paddle is made of so many layers of leather, there is absolutely no flexibility when it comes to swinging the paddle – it stays completely firm. This works amazingly for control, and if you swing the paddle, it’s basically always going to end up in the spot that you aim for which is always a good thing.

This paddle can basically have two different sensations. You can easily use either side of the paddle to strike your partner which makes this paddle versatile for both beginners and advanced players. When you are a beginner, you can lightly use the fur side, and when you crave a bit more sting, you can use the no-fur side to get that extra sting along with it.

The fur side provides a pretty heavy sensation. Since the paddle has no flexibility, it lands with quite a bit of a thud and actually could cause bruising if used really firmly or with strength for multiple strikes. However, for most moderate use, it won’t cause bruising. It doesn’t end up feeling stingy at all, but instead, it ends up feeling strong and heavy. It would cause a soreness easily without leaving any marks which is always fun.

The non-fur side definitely spices things up a bit. Since there isn’t any fur to soften the blow, each moderately-struck blow ends up leaving quite a bit of sting behind. The sting itself definitely can be a bit harsh because the paddle hits so roughly and in such a small area. If the user includes a slight flick of the wrist, the area can get really red with just a couple hits. Plus, if there’s quite a few different strikes with this backside, it can also leave bruising and plus it ends up with a stinging sensation long after the actual striking is finished.

As for cleaning, I’d try to keep this away from bodily fluids. Because faux fur doesn’t sterilize, if this gets near bodily fluid, it’s now a fluid-bonded toy. The leather should just take a damp washcloth to wipe it down as well as the faux fur. (Make sure to dry off the fur before you put it away for storage though. It should be completely dry or the fur won’t be as soft anymore.) For storage, you can store it anywhere where the fur won’t get flattened. For best storage, I recommend using the hanging strap to keep it up somewhere.

The neat thing about this paddle is how easy it really is to use. Because of the small shape, you can use this paddle for a long time without hurting your wrist which makes it great for people who do have wrist trouble. The physical size of the paddle means that your strikes will cover at least one butt cheek of your partner and could possibly cover two. Because it has two separate sensations on each of the sides, you can easily use this as a Beginner and after you get experience which makes it a great investment.

Thank you for the very honest review. I think I prefer a light sting over a little wider area so maybe this one isn’t for me. You put so much into these reviws they are really classic and a work of art.
