Sh! Leather Shaped Spanking Paddle
By Carnal Queen.
As a youngster, I often heard words along these lines, uttered by either my Parents or an Uncle …
“Oi! Stop doing that, or I’ll bend you over my knee and smack your bum!”.
I really wasn’t a particularly naughty child, and they never ever took a hand to me, but when you’re running riot, noisily bouncing a football off the back wall or trampling the flower beds, words like these were always enough to curb my rebellion. Oh how times change. Back then that little bit of fear, born from the thought that maybe it was going to be the first time they carried out their threat, was enough to make me tow the line. These days, words to that effect would be enough to make me push boundaries and try to ensure the fate of my wanton ass. What can I say? I’m a naughty girl now …
Even as an older, more know-it-all teenager, I would never have believed that one day, I’d find just the thought of being spanked even slightly sexual or arousing. Fear was fear. You didn’t like fear, you didn’t want to have it at all. Nowadays, taking a bit of fear into the bedroom with me is fun. It heightens my senses and makes my juices flow, and impact play is a great place to start. I used to collect Myth and Magic figurines and behave myself to avoid the wrath of anyone’s palm – now I collect hitty things and willingly bend over to take my punishment! Where’s the old me gone?
Our collection is vast, but I’m always open to trial other wannabes, to see if they make the grade to hang alongside the greats … so when Sh! Women’s Erotic Emporium sent me this Leather Shaped Spanking Paddle, I was only too happy to let my ass decide if it had the making of a keeper, or if it would be destined for a box up in the loft, where all the other failures spend eternity.
The first thing that stuck me, long before the paddle physically did, was how beautiful it was. We didn’t own a white paddle before this one came along, and it’s so refreshing to have something that’s a little bit different. It’s handmade by Sh!, from soft and supple leather on one side, with deep sumptuous faux fur on the other, and is bordered with shiny chrome studs. With a total length of 12 inches, and a head that’s 7.5 by 5 inches, it’s surface area is more generous than many others. The shape is lovely – it has flowing curves that make it a great choice for ass spanking. It has the perfect mix of looking a little bit serious, but without being too intimidating. It’s delicate, but it has attitude.
I’m not always looking for a heavy spanking session. My pain threshold is as varied as my mood swings, and some days, I just can’t handle anything too heavy. CK goes gently, to be sure I’m happy with his weapon of choice, but the Sh! paddle has kind of changed the rules here in CQ-HQ. It’s a paddle for any occasion. It’s not a sharp, heavy sting delivering tool that will make you feel like your skin is being ripped open at the seams, but instead, it’s a sensual implement that will deliver blows that will make your ass glow and your cheeks redden in pleasure. The sound and visuals are pleasing to even the toughest of Masters, but the thwacks you receive are satisfying, yet relatively soft.
I’m a slave to sensual play. It’s something I adore, and I’ll happily lie there for hours whilst being teased and tormented by numerous different things. From the softest of tickles to the sting of a crop, from pinwheels to wax, I enjoy the assault on my senses. The flip-side of this paddle really panders to my love of touch. I think people often mistake furred paddles as solely for beginners, and this is so not true! The thick covering of faux fur on this Sh! paddle is divine. It caresses my warm, reddened skin in between strikes, and it feels delicious when it’s just gently run over my whole body. If you’ve read my Rookie’s Guide To Spanking, you’ll know about the journey your body goes on when you’re being spanked – this paddle is a really great piece to take along with you for the ride.
It really is a stunning, hand crafted spanking paddle, which has earned its place in my gallery of favourites. The hardware on the Sh! paddle is a great addition too. You have a really generously sized hanging ring, and the studs add a little bit of ‘je ne sais quoi’ to the experience. CK likes how they make little red spots appear, moments after impact. The handle is comfortable to hold, and it feels substantial, yet not unwieldy. Balanced and beautiful.
