My girlfriend and I aren’t new to bondage play, but some of the paddles and whips we have tried in the past have been too harsh for us to use them consistently. We were both looking for a paddle that we could use on each other playfully. I was particularly concerned with not being able to use too much force and end up hurting her and ruining the mood.
When we got this paddle in the mail I was particularly pleased with the padding on both sides of the paddle. As the name suggests, the padding is quilted on and is made of a leathery feeling material. The quilts and the paddle are heart shaped which gives it a more playful mood.
We first used the paddle on her. Because of the surface area of the paddle it is difficult to swing it too hard without meaning to. The padding on both surfaces also reduces the sting upon impact, but still makes a satisfying sound. With enough force I was able to get it to connect enough to sting while refraining from causing her pain.
When she used it on me she had similar issues with swinging it with enough force, however she wasn’t able to get it to connect to the point that either of us were used to. She quickly resorted to simply using her hand instead.
Ultimately, we found the paddle to be a great experience overall that allowed us to better train ourselves in how we are using similar toys. It didn’t pack enough of a punch for us to want to use it consistently though.
This toy is great for couples who are new to bondage play, but for more seasoned couples you will likely need something stronger.
