The Realities of Using the Sportsheets Saffron Loop Paddle
A Rite of Passage in My HouseholdSo, the Sportsheets Saffron Loop Paddle has found its rightful place in the display of my collection of sex toys and accessories. Naturally, I offer every new guest in my home a brief tour of said displayed collection. It’s a great icebreaker, honestly! Since I’ve gotten it, once the tour closed in on all the toys for sensations play and impact play, every new guest has ventured an: “Oh, and what is that?”, or a “Wow, is that a spanking paddle?”, or even a “This one is so cool!”. Apparently, my friends and I all share a love for this simple yet beautiful design… and a love for spanking, I guess? This reaction always made me reach for the paddle in excitement, so my friends could eagerly try it out for themselves. This always brings out a little laughter and giggles. Therefore, this has sort of become a ritual of some kind every time I give a tour of the display. Light-handed and lighthearted (consensual) spanks for newcomers have become a sort of rite of passage into my home. To conclude the ritual, I then proceed to tell them where they can purchase this nifty little thing!
Thuddy, and Stingy, and Loud, Oh My!When I’ve actually put the Sportsheets Saffron Loop Paddle to use in the bedroom, my experience has been good overall. One thing I find really great about this spanking paddle is that the type of sensations upon impact differ depending on the intensity. Yes, obviously a more intense swing will feel more intense than a light swing. But I’m talking about the kind of sensation here. When using the paddle more lightly, the impact feel more thuddy. As soon as you go beyond a certain threshold of intensity, then the impact turns quite sharp and more stingy. You won’t hear me complaining, though. I do love a good range of sensation. Last but certainly not least, the sheer volume of this paddle (even with lighter impact) is almost half the fun for me! The loop design creates a kind of slapper-style paddle, with an extra layer of material to create some volume with every smack!
Breaking Down the Design
I absolutely love the design of the Sportsheets Saffron Loop Paddle! I've never owned my own spanking paddle before and I always wanted something super sleek, sexy, and on the larger side. My kinky paddle dreams have come true! I really like both the visual aspect and the functionality of the design. To me, it looks like something you would definitely find hanging on the wall of a certain type of playroom. Additionally, the slapper style design delivers that intense sound effect. I also appreciate that its large enough to provide impact to a larger area on the skin.
Assessing the Usability of the Sportsheets Saffron Loop Paddle
The Sportsheets Saffron Loop Paddle is super easy to use. Simply put the small loop around your wrist, get a comfy grip and spank away! Well, of course, you need to test out the impact a little bit before going crazy. There's always a bit of a learning curve to figuring out how a new paddle works for you and your partner. Practice makes perfect - and you won't need much practice to master this bad boy.
The Sportsheets Saffron Loop Paddle: A Test of Quality
Overall, I think this paddle is a good quality product. Just like all the other BDSM products from the Sportsheets Saffron collection, you're getting some beautifully designed, quality products at a pretty great price. Here's my observation: I don't know if the level of quality means that you've gotten yourself a spanking paddle that will last you a lifetime. However, I do know that the level of quality is impressive enough for me to still recommend this product to you as a great addition to your kinky accessories.
A Closer Look at The Price Tag
In my humble opinion, the Sporsheets Saffron Loop Paddle is very much worth its price tag. I'm actually positively surprised by the quality of the paddle compared to it's relative budget-friendly price range. The paddle itself doesn't come with any extra bells and whistles in the packaging or anything. I just think the quality materials, the sleek design, and the impressive performance is what makes me feel like this spanking tool is very much worth its price.
The Performance of the Sportsheets Saffron Loop Paddle: A Review
Let me tell you, the cracking sound that this slapper paddle makes upon impact will impress most people. For someone who's more into the illusion of pain and punishment than actual pain and punishment, this paddle does wonders for me. I also think it has a good size. You have the option to deliver impact on a larger surface area. It's also large enough for the wielder to take a step back from the receiver in order to take a proper swing! In terms of performance, I definitely don't have any complaints.
Unboxing the Sportsheets Saffron Loop Paddle: First Impressions
There's only one word to describe the packaging with: simple. The Sportsheets Saffron Loop Paddle came wrapped in a simple plastic bag with a little tag on the handle. I mean, I wasn't really expecting much else either. Honestly, it might have seemed like a waste of materials if there had been some kind of extravagant packaging for a simple spanking paddle.
Exploring the Materials and Care
The Sportsheets Saffron Loop Paddle is made of vegan PU leather. It's super easy to clean, although not completely waterproof. I suggest using a damp cloth, some mild soap, and warm water to gently wipe down the paddle to remove any residue, liquids or dust after use. Let dry completely before putting it away for storage. Need a tip for where to store your paddle? If it has a wrist loop, you can easily hang this baby on a hook somewhere in a closet or on display!
The loop design is definitely the winning special feature of this spanking paddle! I love the look of it but also throughly enjoy that intense volume it adds to the thwacks! It’s a great option for anyone who has ever used a folded belt for kinky purposes before. This way, you just get to enjoy the comfort of a handle, a wrist loop, and a much wider band than a belt could provide.
