My Verdict

Overall, I think that the Scandal Feather Crop is a fun gadget for those who are totally new to the spanking game and want something very gentle. The dual-sided design is a great way to explore different sensations and play around with spanking and tickling however you want. I wouldn’t say that this is the most exciting BDSM gadget I’ve used, and the feel of it could be improved, but given the affordable price, I can’t complain. If you want to add a bit of spice to your bedroom it’s a great toy, but if you like intense impact play, I would look for a heavier and more high-end crop or a flogger.

My experience

My Personal Experiences with Scandal Feather Crop

Using the Scandal Feather Crop was a hit-and-miss for me. There are many parts of it that I enjoy and some that didn’t fulfill my expectations. I don’t have anything against that crop, but it just didn’t give me that spark and excitement I get with new BDSM gear. Maybe that’s because I got the crop after testing the Strict Leather Flogger, which is much more exciting and fun to use.

The Good and the Bad

I think that the design is pretty cool, the 2-in-1 approach is fun and versatile. It’s a great toy if you want to explore and spice things up in the bedroom and want an easy-to-use and affordable start. Look-wise, I am not in love with the pattern, but it adds a bit of charm and uniqueness, it’s the stitching that makes this crop feel less high-end. Also, I wish the crop weighted more, because it doesn’t provide that serious feel for the holder. It kinda felt like I was using a cat toy, but for some that might be a pro! When it comes to the impact play, the Scandal Feather Crop is gentle and easy to handle. It provides a delicate slap, but it can feel a bit stingy if you add more force. But it’s definitely not a toy for pro spankers! I enjoyed using it for more delicate areas and foreplay, but I switch to flogger when in my mood for some serious spanking.

Exploring the Design

Scandal Feather Crop Exploring the Design

The Scandal Feather Crop is all about simplicity and versatility. The dual-ended design encourages you to explore different sensations during your play, which is a big plus for anyone who wants to dip their toes into kinkier scenarios. The crop end is perfect for gentle spanking, and the feathers are cute and fluffy. The toy itself looks okay, but the black and red pattern isn’t really my thing.

Understanding the Accessibility of the Scandal Feather Crop

Scandal Feather Crop Understanding the Accessibility of the Scandal Feather Crop

Using the Scandal Feather Crop couldn’t be easier. The crop is lightweight and quite flexible, and the sensation it provides is light and gentle. You can use the crop part for gentle taps and stronger smacks, and feathers for teasing or tickling. Even though I like the 2-in-1 design, I don’t feel like it’s that practical, I wish there was a wrist loop instead because this crop flew out of my hand a few times.

The Scandal Feather Crop: A Test of Quality

Given the low price of this crop, I wasn’t expecting a top-quality sex toy, but the craftsmanship is surprisingly really nice! The crop end is made with fake leather material, which feels comfortable, yet sexy against the skin, and it’s sturdy, so you can play around with more intense swings without worrying about it breaking apart. Even the feathers are of good quality, although sometimes they leave a bit of fluff behind. But, when it comes to the craftsmanship, it could be better, you can clearly see the crooked stitching, and the crop is so lightweight, that it feels a bit flimsy.

Price

The Scandal Feather Crop is a simple and affordable BDSM gadget. I think the price is okay given the nice quality and the fact it’s a 2-in-1 product. Sure, I’ve seen similar products that are a bit cheaper, but let’s not forget that this crop belongs to the super popular Scandal collection.

Weighing up the Performance of the Scandal Feather Crop

As I mentioned before, the Scandal Feather Crop is really easy to use. The impact it provides is gentle, but you can work your way up to something more stingy. I wouldn’t recommend it to those who love painful sessions, but if you like the thrill of slapping and teasing it’s a great choice.

The Scandal Feather Crop came in basic plastic packaging. It didn’t feel fancy or luxurious, but I didn’t expect anything like that for such a low price.

Materials and care of the Scandal Feather Crop

Scandal Feather Crop Materials and care of the Scandal Feather Crop

The crop is made with PVC, polyester, and marabou. The material on the crop end imitates the feel of the leather, and the feathers are soft and fluffy. I wouldn’t say that this is the highest quality toy, but it’s durable and will withstand many juicy slaps. And if you want to clean it, just a quick wipe with a damp cloth will do the trick.
