Product description

Love to make an impression? Then this is going to be your new favorite toy. This high-quality, stitched leather slapping paddle by Sportsheets is simultaneously stylish AND very kinky. It is fairly firm and features a split (double-layered) paddle that delivers super-loud, satisfying slaps and thwacks to your sub. Slap hard enough and they’ll get everything they deserve, plus you get to have the satisfaction of seeing them branded a SLUT too, thanks to the cut-out leather logo design. The leather wrist loop on the handle means you won’t lose your grip during punishment sessions either.

Pros

  • Fantastic quality
  • Good for BDSM beginners
  • Very satisfying thwack and pain range
  • Convenient size

Cons

  • Can be tricky to achieve the 'SLUT' imprint
  • Some find it a little small
  • A little expensive

Conclusion

A good choice for BDSM beginners, the Sportsheets Slut Slapper is sure to make one hell of a noise during paddle slapping, but is also fairly easy to regulate the amount of pain dished out with each stroke. Those more advanced will delight in the imprint it leaves behind during rougher play.

  • Want the choice between soft and hard spanks
  • Are buying your first spanking paddle
  • Like your toys to look stylish
  • Get turned on by feeling different textures on your skin

You should NOT buy the Fifty Shades of Grey Twitchy Palm if you...

Product description

Part of the elegantly sexy Fifty Shades of Grey collection, the Twitchy Palm Spanking Paddle is a firm favorite with beginners and light bondage play lovers who find that this toy gives them the variety of play that they are looking for. The design features two different sides. Turn this BDSM paddle one way and you are presented with a lightly padded side covered in creamy soft silver satin. Use this side to caress and titillate the body in between strokes to increase sensation, and to soothe and reward your sub after a session. If you want to progress to more sting in your spank, flip the Twitchy Palm over to the less-forgiving, black faux leather side. This side gives a much firmer thwack that will have your playmate writhing and begging for more. With an ergonomic design, this paddle feels comfortable when held, and has a wrist strap to keep it secure no matter how hard you spank.

Pros

  • Ideal for beginners
  • Versatile
  • Well made
  • Luxurious design
  • Ergonomic and easy to hold

Cons

  • May have a slight initial odor
  • Not for hardcore pleasure/pain seekers

Conclusion

If you have any other products from the Fifty Shades range, this spanking paddle is fabricated to the same high standard and will be a fantastic addition to your collection. Those searching a more intense spanking experience may find the Twitchy Palm Spanking Paddle doesn’t provide, but couples who like to tease and play without causing their partner too much pain (but still giving plenty to get hot and horny about) will find that it spices things up in all the right ways.

You should buy the Fetish Fantasy Rubber Paddle if you...

  • Already have some experience with spanking paddles and BDSM
  • Enjoy texture play
  • Like a less flexible paddle
  • Desire intense sensations

You should NOT buy the Fetish Fantasy Rubber Paddle if you...

  • Prefer a larger paddle
  • Are new to heavy impact
  • Prefer a thudding spank over a stinging slap

Product description

Made from a firm yet slightly flexible rubber, the Fetish Fantasy Rubber Paddle may not be the prettiest spanking paddle on the block, but it sure is one of the meanest. The double-sided design looks a bit like rubber tire treads and features a range of different textures. There are nubs and bumps everywhere, although they are less pronounced on one side to ensure a good, solid sting, whereas the other side is covered with longer, spikier nubs for more severe sensations all over the body. Holes in the head of the paddle minimize air resistance, which means your stroke won’t be slowed down and the pain to your sub will be direct. The textured handle gives amazing grip, and could also be used in other ways during play.

Pros

  • Features varied textures
  • Easy to use
  • Durable even during rough play
  • Value for money

Cons

  • Too stiff and hard for some
  • Can have an initial odor
  • Could be bigger

Conclusion

If you’ve already experimented with gentler paddles and you’re looking to up your game, there’s no doubt that this rubber spanking paddle will please. For intermediate and seasoned players, the Fetish Fantasy Rubber Paddle will guarantee that your sub will get so much sensation out of your punishment sessions that they won’t be able to sit down for days without being reminded of them. Why? Because they hurt so good…

You should buy the Fetish Fantasy Extreme if you...

  • Want a precise aim
  • Like a severe spanking
  • Get off on a slap that really stings

You should NOT buy the Fetish Fantasy Extreme if you...

  • Don't like more intense pain
  • Prefer less stinging sensations
  • Like a more rigid spanking paddle

Product description

The Fetish Fantasy Extreme is made from super springy silicone with a somewhat heavier weight than some of the other paddles for spanking in this review. The extra weight, combined with the long, thin spanking surface, allows for some severe sensations. Firm yet velvety to the touch, one side of this spanking paddle is smooth for an intense, deep sting. The reverse side has a raised diamond texture which bites into bare skin and leaves a very rosy glow indeed. Another advantage of silicone is that it is extremely resistant to temperature, so you can even heat up or cool down the Fetish Fantasy Extreme and add the erotic dimension of temperature play during playtime. It’s also waterproof, so don’t hesitate to indulge in some spanking sexy kink in the tub or shower.

Pros

  • Nice size, weight, and feel
  • Can be wielded with little effort
  • Choice of textures
  • Good quality

Cons

  • Expensive
  • Handle could be more comfortable
  • No wrist loop
Features Fetish Fantasy Extreme

Conclusion

This is a simple, yet very effective spanking paddle that is sure to make its mark. It’s nicely weighted and flexible enough that even inflicting an intense spanking session on your sub won’t tire you out. It’s also fantastic quality and surprisingly versatile. We highly recommend the Fetish Fantasy Extreme Silicone spanking paddle, but it is a toy for the more experienced and should be used with caution.

Product description

Are you ready for intense erotic electro sex that will transform your bondage play? Experience ecstasy like never before with the ElectraStim Bi-Polar ElectraPaddle. Even at first glance this BDSM paddle already looks exciting. Its sleek, stitched black leather construction screams quality, and it has a smooth, wide paddle for incredible teasing smacks and resounding whacks. But this baby has another sting in its tail. Turn it over and you’ll see three metal electrodes that can be hooked up to an E-Stim power pack to deliver highly charged sensations wherever you choose on your partner’s skin. Keep the current low to get them tingling, then crank it up for intoxicating pleasure and explosive orgasms. Don’t forget to apply the special conductive gel to maximize every sensation and be sure to only use the ElectraPaddle above the waist.

Pros

  • Provides unique sensual sensations
  • Top quality
  • Makes for very versatile play

Cons

  • Very expensive
  • Cables can be inconvenient

Conclusion

This spanking paddle essentially performs two jobs, delivering pounding punishment with the smooth side, or electrifying sensations with the other. We found that the electric charges are easier to feel when the paddle is used to stroke and tease delicate areas such as the genitals or inner thigh. For the most blended experience, alternate between spanking with the smooth side and applying the other side to titillate your sub by zapping or tingling sensitive areas.

Product description

Do you want a lot of sting per swing? The Sportsheets Saffron Acrylic Spanker will give you the goods. Made from firm yet flexible acrylic, this spanking paddle has a total overall length of 13 inches, and a whopping impact surface of 8 inches in length. This generously sized impact surface is made of durable transparent acrylic and has 13 holes cut into it which reduce air resistance, allowing you to strike harder and faster for maximum effect. Depending on the severity of your punishment, the holes can also mark the skin in a sexy dotted pattern. The clear acrylic allows you to see right through to the action, to see the skin of your sub tremble and redden as you make contact. The design also features a 5-inch, smooth PVC handle complete with a handy wrist strap so you won’t lose control of the paddle when your sessions get wild.

Pros

  • Allows for fast, hard strokes
  • Satisfyingly severe

It’s of fantastic quality, and the long impact surface coupled with the added speed and swish will give a damn good spanking to bad girls and boys. Although this spanking paddle is easy to use, it can be quite severe, so it is probably best left to those who know their way around a paddle a little already.

Product description

If you want erotic sensory play AND impact play all rolled into one, look no further than the Panamorphic 3-in-1. Cleverly designed, this black, faux leather spanking paddle features one wide, smooth side for when a straightforward, good hard spanking is necessary — but the opposite side is another story altogether! This side gives the option of interchangeable pads for different sensations and styles of play. The first pad is covered in velvety-soft faux fur for phenomenal foreplay or soothing sore buttocks between smacks. The second is studded with 11 devilish spikes for extreme discipline as required, or if Dom is feeling generous, some tantalizing temperature play or even gentle (or not) massage. Your imagination is your only limitation when it comes to this versatile spanking paddle.

Pros

  • 3 paddles rolled into 1
  • Fabulous for sensation play
  • Attractive, clever design

Cons

The Panamorphic 3-in-1 offers something for everyone, from beginner to advanced. The only minor niggle we have with this design is that changing the velcro pads in the heat of the moment might be a little fiddly, but I guess that’s just part of the fun!

Product description

Every serious spanker or spankee needs a wooden spanking paddle in their arsenal, and this one by Stockroom is our weapon of choice. Handcrafted from sturdy cross-grain plywood and with a whopping 6.25-inch width, it sure packs a wallop! The handle is wrapped with soft, supple leather that looks and feels luxurious, plus provides a secure grip, and there is a wrist strap to ensure you don’t miss a beat when dishing out discipline. The round shape provides more of a thud than a sting, but if you prefer a paddle of the same quality, but with a little more bite, Stockroom have also created a rectangular version of the same design which you can check out here. This is a beautifully crafted paddle for spanking which will last a lifetime if used correctly.

Pros

  • Shape and material gives a good thwack
  • Beautifully crafted
  • Anyone can try it

How to Choose a Spanking Paddle

Do you love impact play? Maximise your experience by getting the best spanking paddle possible. When shopping for a spanking paddle, there are a number of factors you need to consider. Check out the list below to find out everything you need to know to make sure you give (or receive) exactly what you deserve…

Experience

First and foremost, think about what stage you are at. If you’re a newbie you’ll want a softer, less powerful paddle to give you the chance to experiment and discover what turns you on the most, as well as how to use a paddle correctly. More advanced? Then you are free to go all out with hardcore options.

Material

Material - How to Choose a Spanking Paddle
Spanking paddles are made from all kinds of materials, including: faux leather, silicone, wood, perspex, and more. Each has its own particular feel. Leather for example, is softer and more flexible, than wood. Perspex and silicone can give a severe sting and leave a mark. Soft textures such as satin or faux-fur are good for caressing and soothing sore skin.

Shape and Size

The size and shape of your paddle can really make a difference. A larger, wider paddle area disperses any force over a wider area, so is generally less painful. A long, thin smacking paddle however, provide much more sting and ramp up the pain. Paddles with holes in reduce air resistance, increasing ease of use and force.

DIY Spanking Paddle

Are you curious about spanking but not sure if you want to invest in a genuine paddle? Or maybe you just get turned on by the thought of being smacked by a wooden spoon like your daddy used to do? Whatever the reason, we’ve come up with a list of household items that double up as effective spanking paddles for your painful pleasure…

Wooden Spoon

Perhaps the most obvious choice, but damn, it can pack a whack. Wood is a very unforgiving material, and the small surface area of the spoon gives a severely pleasurable sting.

Leather Belt

Ok, so this is borderline flogging equipment, but it can be used for spanking too, and it smarts like hell! As a bonus is can also be used as a sexy restraint during bondage play. However, NEVER use the buckle to spank your partner, as it could cause serious damage.

Hairbrush

Use the flat side of a hairbrush just like you would a regular spanking paddle. OR, flip it over and use the bristles for sensory play.

Ping Pong Paddle

A ping pong bat makes a great spanking paddle. It’s made from wood, so it’s going to give a hard smack, but because it is round and wide it is less severe than a wooden spoon, and it’s easy to vary the intensity of your strike.

Slipper or Sandal

A supple leather or rubber sole can give a serious slap, and depending on how they’re made, they can have some significant weight to them too.

Ruler

Live out your schoolteacher and pupil fantasies by using a ruler to train or punish your playmate. Avoid metal, opt for flexible plastic or firm wood instead, they’ll soon be begging to learn!

A Word of Advice

We do not recommend making your own sex toys and always recommend that you purchase purpose-made sex toys from a reputable shop. We are in no way responsible for any harm caused due to the use or sharing of these DIYs. You are 100% responsible for the outcome should you choose to make your own sex toys.

How to Use a Spanking Paddle

There are a whole ton of exciting, erotic ways to use a spanking paddle and bring your partner to heel. But it’s a good idea to follow some basic guidelines…

Communicate

Communicate

Discuss with your partner beforehand about what you would both like from your play session. Agree on a safe word to ensure that there is a way out if the pain becomes too much to bear.

Safety First

Safety First

Pain can be pleasurable, but it’s important to use your paddle correctly to avoid injury. Stick to areas of the body that have a good covering of flesh and muscle, such as the buttocks and thighs, to avoid causing any damage to bones or internal organs.

Strike a Pose

Strike a Pose

Positions for using your paddle are limitless, but it’s best to choose one that it comfortable. OTK (Over the Knee) is a classic, but it is not well suited to longer paddles, which are more effective when used in a bent over position. Have fun experimenting to find the positions that work best for you, your partner, and your chosen paddle.

Warm Up

Warm Up

It’s always a good idea to warm up using hand smacks or gentle taps with your paddle before moving on to something more forceful. It will titillate your partner and intensify the pleasure.

Switch Up

Switch Up

Keep your partner guessing by switching between cheeks and using different levels of intensity when you smack. Consider introducing other types of play along with spanking to vary sensations and ramp up the excitement.

How to Clean a Spanking Paddle

Unlike many other sex accessories, spanking paddles are less likely to come into contact with bodily fluids, but you'll still want to keep your paddle in tip top condition, so cleaning is a must. Depending on the material your paddle is made from, cleaning will be slightly different. Wood and faux-leather can be wiped down with a damp cloth for example, whereas perspex or silicone paddles are waterproof and can be submerged in water for a more thorough clean. Take a look at our infographic below for tips on how to keep your sex toys clean as a whistle.
