FAQ

What is BDSM?
BDSM is a sexual activity and sometimes lifestyle; it stands for Bondage and Discipline, Dominance, Submission and Masochism. It involves pain, pleasure, dominance, submission, bondage, and lots more consensual practices.
I’m a beginner: should I try a metal or a plastic pinwheel?
We would recommend starting with a metal pinwheel that has blunted spikes, but the choice is up to you: there isn’t any “right” way or “wrong” choice! Metal gives the overall 'luxury' and BDSM aesthetic, whilst plastic can appear a little cheaper looking depending on the brand and price- of course, it's all about what you prefer!
Are there any risks associated with using pinwheel BDSM toys?
No. Beyond the possibility of drawing blood (which means you must clean and sanitize your toy afterward), there aren’t any risks associated with using pinwheel BDSM toys. Be mindful of the pressure that you put on the toy, especially if you or the person receiving the it does not want to feel any sort of pain.
What are the best places to use my pinwheel toy?
The neck, chest, arms, legs, and inner thigh are all great places to start, but each individual will have their own 'sensitive spots'!
Are there any areas I should avoid?
No, you can use a pinwheel on most body parts (though obviously not the eyes). However, if you’re using a pinwheel on the genitalia, take things easy, taking care not to damage this sensitive skin.
What happens if I draw blood?
This happens sometimes: not to worry! The only issue is if your partner doesn’t want you to press down that hard. Always communicate about what you both want, and what feels good and doesn't. Consent is everything! If they’re fine with it, all is good! However, you should bear in mind that drawing blood increases your risk of sharing bloodborne diseases, so ensure that your pinwheel is sterilized if blood is drawn and you're using the toy with multiple partners. Also, remember to clean any broken skin to help further protect yourself from pathogens.
What is a wartenberg pinwheel used for?
Originally starting out as a medical tool used to assess neurological sensory function, a wartenberg wheel is used to stimulate the skin and the nerves during sexual scenarios. By rolling the toy along the skin, the nerve endings become more responsive.
Who can use a BDSM pinwheel?
Anyone with the desire to increase sensitivity can use a pinwheel! If your skin is very delicate or thin, be extra cautious with the amount of pressure that is put on the pinwheel, as it could easily cause tearing or bruising.

What is a Pinwheel BDSM Toy?

A pinwheel BDSM toy (also known as a Wartenberg Wheel) is a toy designed to stimulate the nerve endings of the skin by poking it with individual spikes. These toys are a favorite amongst the medical fetish, as they originally started out as medical devices used to assess sensory function. Using a BDSM pinwheel is completely safe, as long as you and your partner(s) have communicated preferences beforehand; you should never put heavy pressure on the skin when using a pinwheel (unless your partner has enthusiastically expressed desire for this and consented), as this could cause bruising and bleeding. If you or your partner bleed due to the pressure, be sure to clean the pinwheel thoroughly and your skin. Be aware that bleeding can cause transmission of bloodborne pathogens. Some favorite places to use a pinwheel are, the inner thighs, neck, chest, arms, and legs- if using on the genitalia, you shouldn't put pressure on the pinwheel as the skin around this area is very delicate. For beginners, we recommend a blunted metal pinwheel for experimentation, or of course, you can use a plastic pinwheel- it's all about preference!

Although visually intimidating, this Wartenberg wheel BDSM toy is actually perfect for beginners! The spikes themselves are thin enough to provide the ideal amount of stimulation (which is helped by the weight of this toy) without actually being so sharp that they easily puncture the skin. This makes this BDSM pinwheel toy perfect for newcomers who want to try sensation play on their most sensitive areas—such as the nipples—without needing to worry about cleaning up blood afterward. Equipped with 22 spikes and easy to use, introduce yourself (or your partner) to sensation play with this “Fifty Shades Darker” licensed Metal Wartenberg Wheel Pinwheel BDSM toy!

Conclusion

If you’ve never tried sensation play before then you’ll probably want to stay away from razor-sharp pinwheels at the beginning. Although they look like they’ll cut right into you, the spikes used on this toy are relatively dull, making them perfect for first-timers. At approximately $20, they allow people to introduce themselves (or their partners) to pinwheels without making a significant investment. Of course, this does come at a cost, which fortunately is a fairly small price to pay. In terms of quality, it could be better, as the toy may come apart over time and the wheel tends to squeak when in use. Still, these are easy fixes and—for the price—aren’t really much to complain about. Along with the pinwheel, you’ll also receive a branded drawstring bag, which we thought was a nice touch.

Complete with a single line of 22 individual spikes, this toy is a great way to explore sensory play across your body without needing to worry about accidental injuries.

Conclusion

Like the model listed above, the spikes on this toy could be sharper, but they do have a bit more piercing potential than the previous model. This pinwheel also has a bit more weight, meaning the sensations it provides should be more than adequate without needing to actually push down on the toy. However, if you do decide to apply a bit of extra force, this toy is sharp enough to pierce the skin eventually, so that’s something you’ll want to keep in mind. That said, whether or not this is a good thing ultimately depends on personal preference, and for less than $10, we think this pinwheel is a good buy. That said, we’d recommend finding a way to lube the wheel itself since it’s prone to being squeaky out of the box!

Does metal seem like too much for you? Why not try this plastic Mini Sensation Pinwheel instead! 20 spikes are spread evenly around this pinwheel, pointed and ready to apply some sensory stimulation without the risk of accidental punctures. Its small size means you can easily take this toy with you anywhere, and the fact that it’s made of plastic means you won’t have to worry about being on the receiving end of any awkward questions at the airport. You don’t always need to take huge risks to have a great reward, so why not spend the $9 to try out sensory play and see if it’s right for you?

Conclusion

As a model designed specifically with the beginner in mind, there is little—if any—risk of injuring yourself while using this toy. Both the pinwheel and the handle are made of plastic, which is about as sturdy as you might expect. For first-timers, this toy should provide adequate stimulation, but for more experienced users (or just people who want to apply a lot of pressure), it might be best to avoid this toy. The plastic is relatively cheap, meaning it’s likely to bend or even break if you apply too much pressure. Still, this pinwheel is meant to provide a light, enjoyable introduction to sensory play, and for that purpose, it checks off all the boxes!

Are you ready to take things to the next level but aren’t quite ready for a truly piercing experience? If so, this Three Wheel Metal Wartenberg Pinwheel toy from Doc Johnson might provide the perfect middle ground. This model offers three rows of independently spinning spikes for added stimulation, but also allows you to experiment with pressure safely thanks to the blunted-pin design. Of course, if you want a truly piercing experience, you can still enjoy one! A big step up from the single-row pinwheels but safe enough for less-experienced users, this pinwheel balances visual appeal with functionality at a low price point of only $25!

Conclusion

Whether or not this toy will meet your needs depends on what you hope to achieve with it. While you can definitely pierce the skin using this pinwheel, you’ll need to apply a lot of pressure to do so since the pins themselves have blunted ends. However, this could be a fun challenge! Alternatively, intermediate sensory play enthusiasts can use this as a way to increase the intensity of their sensory play without much risk of accidentally penetrating the skin. Considering the overall design and low price point, this is definitely a Wartenberg wheel BDSM toy we can recommend to most people!

So, you started with a plastic pinwheel sex toy, moved on to a metal one, upgraded to a triple-pinwheel toy, and yet, you still don’t have enough spikes to satisfy your sensory needs: what now? Well, thankfully for you, there’s the Master Series 5 Reel Pinwheel by HUSTLER! Made from high-quality stainless steel, this pinwheel toy has five rows of independently rotating spikes ready to fulfill your sensory desires. Since stainless steel can retain temperatures, you can easily heat or cool this toy for added fun! With five rows of spikes and a long handle to grab, apply as much (or as little) pressure to yourself or your partner for maximum enjoyment!

Conclusion

At $45, this pinwheel is easily the most expensive toy on this list so far. To be fair, it also offers the most in terms of spikes and performance! The five rows of spikes stretch 1.5 inches across your skin, providing the maximum sensation possible for a truly stimulating experience. While other models likely can also be used for temperature play, this model specifically mentioned temperature play in their listing, meaning the steel used will effectively retain your preferred temperature. While the spikes do look sharp from far away, a closer examination reveals that they are semi-blunted on the ends, so you won’t need to worry about drawing blood from the get-go. They might be a bit more expensive, but if you really love sensory play, we think this pinwheel is easily worth the asking price!

Pinwheel toys are already pretty personal, but it turns out that you can actually get every closer to your partner. Enter, these Cat Claw Pinwheels from Rouge! Easily slipping onto a single finger, these pinwheels are placed directly at the end of your finger, allowing for precise placement and pressure of the pinwheels on your partner. Run the spikes over their neck, chest, legs, and other body parts to drive them wild, all with only a single finger! Since this toy only takes up one finger, you can even wear them on multiple fingers for even more sensory entertainment. Just remember: don’t touch your eyes!

Conclusion

These pinwheels are unlike anything else on this list so far. By placing the pinwheels directly on your finger, the design allows you to be much more precise while driving your partner wild! Still, the price point could be debatable, especially considering how small the item itself actually is. At $30 per finger, it would cost you $150 to do an entire hand! Of course, since this item is only available in one size, you wouldn’t be able to do that anyway, and that brings us to the main issue: will it fit? You can measure your individual fingers or find out when it arrives, but either way, you might not be able to fit these pinwheels on your preferred finger! It would be nice if these were adjustable or available in multiple sizes since not everyone has the same size fingers. Still, if it fits, this toy can definitely be fun!

“Wheel of Pleasure” might not be the most accurate description. We’d probably rename it the “Wheel of Pleasure and Pain” instead! Featuring ten rows of prickly, razor-sharp pins, this pinwheel definitely isn’t for the faint of heart. You can easily break the skin with this toy, but if that’s what you’re after, then you’ll quickly fall in love with the “Wheel of Pleasure in Black”! Priced to sell, this pinwheel offers sharp spikes, a large handle, and a level of visual intimidation not before seen on this list. If you’re ready to take your sensory play to the next level, then this is surely a pinwheel you’ll want to add to your shopping cart!

Conclusion

Finally, we’ve reached pinwheel toys that are best suited to more experienced sensory play enthusiasts! Offering ten rows of prickly spikes within only 0.75 inches, this is definitely a toy that can easily pierce the skin if you’re not careful. On the other hand, if that’s what you’re after then this toy will certainly do the trick! Although having the potential to draw blood could be good or bad depending on your personal preference, there’s one drawback we can all agree on: you’ll definitely cause some pain if you don’t use this pinwheel in a straight line! Whereas all the aforementioned pinwheels placed each row of spikes on a separate wheel, this model has all of the spikes connected to the same wheel. While this could open up some extra stimulating options for partner play, it would have been nice if each row had its own wheel, rather than sharing the same one.

You won’t need to apply much pressure for this toy to work its magic, and your partner is sure to go wild!

Conclusion

Last but not least on our list, the Scandal Pleasure Wheel from CalExotics isn’t an amazing product, but it’s not the worst either. While it’s made of zinc alloy (rather than high-quality stainless steel), it nonetheless has a good design with spikes that should satisfy most casual users. The handle is long enough to be easily gripped and manipulated, which can be a problem on similarly priced models that are small in size. We especially like the fact that it’s covered by a warranty: while it’s unlikely the pinwheel would break during this period, it still shows that CalExotics have enough faith in their product to back it up, despite it being made from a lower-quality material. On the plus side, the zinc alloy used is nickel-free, so those with sensitive skin won’t need to worry about getting unwanted rashes or negative reactions when using this pinwheel toy.

The History of the Wartenberg Wheel

Origins

Origins

Origins

The Wartenberg Wheel was originally a medical device used for neurological testing. It appears to have originated in Europe, and although it is named after Dr. Robert Wartenberg, the device was introduced to him, not created by him. While he did not create the device himself, he did help popularize its use in the United States. The exact inventor of the device is unknown.

Usage

Usage

Usage

Although originally intended for use as a medical device, Wartenberg pinwheels are commonly used today in BDSM. The pins on these devices can be used to stimulate the skin, making them an excellent choice for sensory play, pain play, and medical roleplaying scenarios.

How to a Pinwheel BDSM Toy

They seem simple to use, but is there a “right” way and a “wrong” way to use a pinwheel BDSM toy? Let’s find out!

How to a Pinwheel BDSM Toy

Using a Pinwheel

Using a Pinwheel

Pinwheel toys are extremely easy to use: you simply run the pinwheel over your partner’s skin, applying more or less pressure to achieve the desired effect! While this is simple in practice, getting your technique just right will take a bit of practice, although you’ll certainly have fun learning more about your partner’s most sensitive parts in the meantime. While pinwheel toys can be used alone, many people add blindfolds or other props into the mix.

How to Clean a Pinwheel BDSM Toy

Both plastic and metal pinwheel toys can be cleaned using antibacterial soap and warm water (you can also use toy cleaner). After you’ve washed and scrubbed your toy off using a washcloth, make sure to pat your toy dry with a towel and leave it out to air dry before storage. Failing to allow your pinwheel to completely dry could result in unwanted bacteria growth! Metal pinwheel BDSM toys can also be sterilized. The process is very simple: boil some water, drop your pinwheel into the boiling water, leave it there for at least three minutes, and then remove the pinwheel and follow the recommended drying steps above.

Soft plastic, hard plastic, jelly, rubber, Cyberskin are all porous materials, meaning that small particles and bacteria can penetrate the surface. This makes it impossible to completely clean these types of materials.

Therefore, it is recommended that you use a condom with these types of toys, especially if you are sharing them. Clean these toys with mild soapy water and dry gently with a towel. These materials are more easily damaged, so be sure to be gentle and make sure your toys are completely dry before storing.

Non-propous
materials

Silicone, glass, stainless steel and some hard plastics can all be washed using a mild soap (like you would use on your body) and warm water. Just be careful if your toy contains electrical parts.

components
