Spanking Paddles

Who doesn’t like to be spanked? Aside from blindfolds and handcuffs, spanking paddles might be the next most popular BDSM toy. While it’s not incredibly uncommon for a sex toy to pop up in a TV show or movie, Spanking Paddles have been enjoying the limelight for many years. In the cult classic film, “Dazed and Confused” the high school seniors are even seen crafting homemade paddles, and by looking at some of the designs, it’s quite clear what the intended use was for those particular models. And there should be no shame in that, it’s common knowledge that a lot of people, both men, and women, enjoy being spanked sexually. And for those who do, there’s Paddles and Slappers. Men and women alike have both been known to enjoy spanking mainly due to the physical sensation. The person being spanked becomes increasingly aroused as the pain transits into pleasure as it surges through their lower half. At the same time, the person doing the spanking may become aroused from asserting power and dominating their partner. It’s really about mixing the right toys with the right couples to get the best experiences.

Impact Play

Impact Play utilizes BDSM toys like floggers, paddles, whips, and crops. Whether you or your partner want to experiment with some light spanking or test your limits with some rough foreplay, you are engaging in Impact Play. Impact Play can be fun and enjoyable for both parties when engaged in properly.

Types of Paddles

There are so many paddles on the market today intended for erotic use in the bedroom. There are wooden models with large holes drilled out for airflow. Airflow holes are designed to cut back on air resistance allowing maximum velocity, resulting in the perfect swing and connection.

Another popular version is the leather paddle which is similar to both a paddle and whip in the sense that it is flexible. There are combinations of wood and leather, as well as other materials like vinyl and rubber as well. With a bunch of colors and styles to chose from, it’s easy to understand how most people who indulge in bondage often end up with a drawer full of erotic paddles.

For the experienced

Anyone can get spanked or dish out a good spanking but those who are really into it can take it to a whole other level. There are studded paddles available as well as models that have designs and words etched in them. The intended purpose of these paddles is to leave a mark behind, and it’s usually a calling card of more experienced BDSM’ers.

Don’t forget to check in with your partner!

If you and your partner are into using BDSM toys like these, always make sure to check in with your partner from time to time just to make sure everything is good and enjoyable. You may think you’re spanking too hard when your partner may want it harder, or maybe you’re being too rough and need to lighten up a little. It’s just as easy to get lost in the moment and accidentally hurt someone as it is to worry too much about it and ruining the experience altogether. Communicate, experiment, and have fun!

Aftercare

Aftercare is a common word heard throughout the world of BDSM circles. What it means is to check in with your partner post-sex, or active the activity or scene has ended, to make sure you both feel good and secure with what had just occurred. It’s a very important part of any type of sexual or erotic play that involves the risk of physical harm, including impact play, and may require bringing the submissive partner some water and ice for any bruises.
