Spanking Paddles

An impact play toy at its most versatile

Spanking paddles can't be beaten!

If you're after an impact play toy that has plenty of variables and can cover all imaginable bases, you can't go wrong with a good old-fashioned spanking paddle. They come in leather, wood or acrylic; padded in suede for a softer touch or spiked with metal to add an extra bite; drilled through with holes to help them pack a punch or double-layered for a truly impressive sound upon impact. They're small, easy to take out with you, highly personalisable, easy to learn how to use and often inexpensive. As a piece of starter kit, paddles can hardly be beaten - but they keep their appeal long after someone isn't a beginner anymore.

What is a spanking paddle?

Spanking paddles come in all shapes and sizes but they all have a handle to hold and a flat surface designed for spanking, mainly buttocks but also can be used to spank other fleshy areas of the body.

How do you use a spanking paddle?

There are different types of paddles that give all different kinds of spank. The heavier the paddle, the more caution needs to be used when hitting. Lighter paddles can be used with more force. All paddles are used by holding the handle to swing the paddle back and forth to impact on a sub’s flesh.

Spanking paddle safety tips

Paddles should only be used on fleshy parts of the body such as buttocks, thighs and with caution, breasts. Regularly check wooden paddles, to be sure there are no splinters or chips before play. Be sure you have plenty of room to swing your paddle before using, so not to accidentally hit someone else or hurt yourself by hitting a wall etc.

What to look for in a spanking paddle

Wooden spanking paddles need to be varnished, especially if they’re to be used on multiple partners. Wood absorbs liquids if not varnished. When picking the perfect paddle, be sure the handle is comfortable in your hand, that it doesn’t rub, and it isn’t too short. You need to have a good grip to give a good spank! Check the intensity of the spank; some paddles can be thumpy others can be stingy. Find a spanking paddle that delivers the kind of pain you want.

    Similar to Spanking Paddles

    Spanking is probably the most famous kinky activity of all, and millions of people the world over have indulged on occasion. It's generally done with a bare hand; while plenty of people also enjoy getting spanked with a paddle or other tools, this is more often referred to as 'impact play'. Spanking is sometimes used to describe striking someone with a convenient object, such as a belt or a bedroom slipper. Most commonly spanking is aimed at the buttocks, and while other fleshy areas of the body (such as the thighs, breasts or in some cases genitals) can be a lot of fun to spank it's best to stick to fleshy areas. As with all things, do a little research to make sure you're being safe and have a clear negotiation with your partner beforehand to establish what they like, what they want and which safeword they'll use.
    Many people enjoy the sensation of flagellation, and a lot of submissives will tell you that the flogger is their preferred method of impact play. They come in an enormous range of weights and materials and can be as harsh or as sensual as you fancy. They can take a bit of getting used to from the perspective of the wielder, so it's well worth doing a little advance practice and honing your flogging technique before you begin. The gamut of floggers runs all the way from soft suede to sharp-edged leather, meaning that there's something for everyone - no matter what your preferences and pain threshold.
    In the words of the immortal Rihanna, "sticks and stones may break my bones - but chains and whips excite me". Whipping isn't quite as common a BDSM practice as the uninitiated might imagine (whips are unwieldy implements and difficult to use well; crops, canes, paddles and floggers are all far more usual) but it definitely has its fans. Bullwhips are occasionally to be seen in fetish clubs, and masochists who enjoy sharp sting-type pains are likely to have fun at the end of them. Enjoy the cracking noise when you hear it--it's a sign that you're breaking the sound barrier!
