Pocket Crop

The Jack’s Flogger Pocket Crop

Vendor: Jack’s Flogger

Construction

This crop has a traditional riding crop design, but with its overall length just short of 400mm is considerably shorter than riding crops for sporting purposes.

Like almost all impact toys from Jack’s Flogger the handle is covered with braided leather, almost like a flogger handle. There is a tiny knot at both ends; the lower one houses a ring for easy storage. The shaft is made out of fiber glass and 145mm long. Most of it is covered in braided nylon but a bit of the upper part where leather of the slapper is sown around it. The 90mm long swat itself is made out of stiff, 4mm thick oil-taned bridle leather. 2/3 of it are 27mm wide and sown and glues together while the last third tappers up to a 12mm wide slapper.

Detail of the Swat

Playing with the Pocket Crop

Usually riding crops are used for quick, precise “long-range” punishment or encouragement like motivating a sub licking boots or goad him without having to get up. Being shorter the Pocket Crop allows for new kinds of play. It is short enough to be feasible for over the knee, hitting a sub strapped to a spanking horse while maintaining body contact or bastinado. The compact size makes it ideal for bringing life into toys which have lost their bite during a scene like clamps or suction cups. Simply hit them a bit and the sub will certainly feel them again.

Detail of the Braided Handle, End Knot and Ring for Storage

Like every riding crop the premiere sensation is stingy. The intensity can easily be adjusted from tapping over just flicking to full energy blows. While just hitting with the tip is a bit less intense because it has some give, hitting with the lower 2/3 is intense. The stiff leather in combination with the hard fiber glass turns all impact energy into pain. Like the different pain sensation, the coloring of the two sections is very different. The slapper leaves almost no marks but hitting with the entire swat quickly reddens the skin and leave bruises. While it will not break the skin easily I would recommend not hitting body parts with frail bones like the hand for example frequently and with high intensity. The same applies for CBT: Tapping or light flicking on the ball or the glans make the sub squirm. But full blows or hard flicking can lead to bruises or serious injuries so please be careful.

Even though the crop is quite short, it is not really jacket-pocket short. But it fits well into briefcases and became quite popular with BLUF friends of mine. They attached the crop to their belts or put it into their boots because it was shorter than traditional crops and thus not as cumbersome.

Conclusion: Short and powerful riding crop for an incredible price.

Sets of Delrin and Teflon Canes

Two Sets of Jack’s Floggers Canes
Top: Delrin; Bottom: Teflon

Vendor: Jack’s Floggers

Construction

Today I am going to take a look at two sets of canes made by Jack’s Floggers which I have bought this summer. All canes are made the same way: At the bottom there is a grip section covered in braided black leather with a small knot on both ends so they look and feel a bit like a flogger. The bottom knot houses a steel ring so you can store the canes easily. The cane itself is a round rod with a rounded, deburred tip so there is no risk of unintentional injuries. The canes come in diameters of 6mm, 8mm, 10mm and 12mm. The delrin canes are black and 70cm long while the PTFE (more commonly known as Teflon) are white and 50cm long. The white fluoresces under UV lighting so accordingly lid play spaces this effect adds some extra visual drama to the scene. Sadly Jack’s Floggers only offer the canes in the mentioned length and does not offer short or longer ones even on request.

Detail of the Braided Leather Handle with the Hanging Loop

Playing with the Canes

The rule of thumb is: The thinner a cane, the stingier the impact sensation will be. However the two materials invoke a bit different sensations. The delrin is quite stiff and thus even stingier. Their sensation is closer to the one of “traditional” natural canes made out of rattan or wicker. Teflon on the other hand is way denser yet more flexible so the blows tend to be thuddier. The 70cm length of the delrin ones are a standard cane length which is ideal for playing with a bit of distance between the sub and the top ranging from the sub being fettered to a spanking bench to standing positions like on a St. Andrews Cross. The shorts Teflon ones are made for more intimate play like over the knee caning. The shorter length makes good targeting more important, especially when you want to hit both cheeks, thighs or sole of the feet. Since canes transfer a lot of kinetic energy onto a very small area, this kind of toy should be use with caution and experience and only on through muscles and fat tissue well padded body areas. Especially when doing bastinado (caning of the feet) or hitting hands (a practice commonly done in schoolboy scenes) do not use too much force. You might break the small and thus fragile bones. When it comes to marking both materials are in no way inferior to rattan or wicker.

Detail of the Rounded and Deburred Tip

I intentionally chose synthetic canes over natural ones for three reasons: First, synthetic ones are love maintenance. While you have to water or wax natural canes before playing to keep them flexible, I can spontaneously grab the synthetic ones in a scene and just use them. Second, unlike rattan they are completely smooth and have the same degree of flexibility on the entire length. Rattan’s internodes can effect flexibility and create a hard bulge in the middle of the cane which can inflict unintended and hard to control pain. Third and most important there is the saver sex aspect. Through the large amount of kinetic energy hitting the body, tissue fluid and in intense canings blood will cover the area in addition to sweat and abraded skin. Even polished and waxed wicker has a somewhat rough surface making it ideal for bacteria and viruses to linger and grow. So a natural cane should only be used on a single sub. Synthetic canes on the other hand can easily be sanitized and quickly be used again on a different sub.

I also chose the materials intentionally. Synthetic canes are made out of a number of different materials. Metal ones especially in combination with e-stim or heat/cool play are fun but in a high intensity scene hard to dose; they can actually shatter bones. Fibre glass or acryl can break in half or “just” spall causing nasty wounds which in case of fibre glass in some cases will never heal.  Delrin and Teflon are basically unbreakable and will last you a lifetime.

Conclusion: Well made and easy to use and maintain cane set.

ToyTortures Top 10 Toys: DeTails Flogger Set

The different colored handles of my flogger set.

Flogging is one of the most intimate and artistic yet difficult form of BDSM play. Quiet easy to learn its basic it takes a long time to master it and develop ones own style. Each set of flogger thus represents the personal preference of the top. Depending on if he likes it more stingy or thuddy, wants to meditate or punish, flogs single-handed or Florentine, the flogger are made differently. So each set tells a story about its owner. What all high-quality, individually made flogger tell is the story of craftsmanship with their braided knots and countless styles of woven handle covers.

My flogger set from DeTails

When I purchased my set from DeTails I chose the company for their value for money: Fitting my student budget I coud get exactly the flogger I wanted. Due to needing the right space and right play partner I rarely use my flogger. That saddens me because feeling and using this work of art is exhilarating. But when I do, I know it is going to be a mind-blowing experience.

When subbing none of all the toys in my collection makes me quiver in anticipation, pushes me to cry out of ecstasy or catharsis or give me an endorphin rush or give me an endorphin rush that even hours  after the scene keeps me from falling asleep like this set of flogger. When topping none of all the toys in my collection lets me physically and mentally connect with my sub. That’s why I love these flogger.

The price of a flogger depends on the tail’s hide, length and number. So it is best to talk to DeTails what you want and – especially when you are new to flogging – need before ordering. To learn about my set, read the in-depth review here.

Carbon Fiber Pain Stick

Vendor: Mr S

The Mr S Carbon Fiber Pain Stick

Construction

The Carbon Fiber Pain Stick’s basis is a 39cm long carbon rod with a diameter of 2.7mm. Unlike most other carbon fiber rods it is a solid one with a deburred tip. The former minimizes the risk of breaking or splintering, the latter prevents it from causing involuntary cuts. The lower 10.5cm of the rod is covered in isolating rubber with vinyl tips on both sides. Through the bottom tip runs one a nylon string loop.

Detail of the Beburred Tip

Playing with the Carbon Fiber Pain Stick

Carbon is a mean material for an impact toy: Lightweight, stiff, yet flexible. So the blows delivered by it are very stingy making the Pain Stick a delightfully devilish toy which needs to be handled delicately. Just a light tapping on the same spot can cause irritating pain, several blows will leave a welt. Because of that this is a great toy for mindfuck-scenes: The top doesn’t induce much force yet the sensation felt can be intense. The small size makes it an ideal for lightweight toy bags when going out to a bar or for precise targeting. But always keep in mind that this toys isn’t made for warming up the skin so adjust the ramping of the scene accordingly.

Another method of using the Pain Stick is pulling the tip back and flick it. This will induce extremely stingy pain which intensity depends on how far you pull it back and if only the tip or the entire rods hits the sub’s body. When you pull back the rod far enough blows can even be felt through thick leather! On bare skin bruises and welts are likely to occur. Since a lot of force is transmitted this way the target areas should be chosen carefully: On thin skinned body areas like the glans the skin will most likely break, delicate body areas like the balls serious bruises or injuries of the spermatic cord can lead to a visit of the ER.

Detail of the Rubber Covered Grip Section and the Loop

Carbon is a conducting material. So if the bite of the stick itself isn’t agonizing enough, it can be connected to an e-stim power box using a pole connection clamp. Since the e-stim sensation should be felt at the impact point, I recommend using a mass-rich counter pole. When playing on the ass or using the Pain Stick for CBT a metal anal electrode is the best option but a conductive rubber loop around the balls or base of the dick also works. For hitting the nipples a pad electrode attached next to the nipple is the safest option.

Since using this toy extensively on a sub can lead to contamination through sweat, interstitial fluid and blood, proper disinfection is important. Luckily carbon is a very low maintenance material in that regards. Simply wash off the residue with warm soap water, let it dry and spray a sanitizer on it. As robust and flexible carbon is, it sadly can break or splinter. So after ever scene, inspect the rod if it is still perfectly smooth. If not, replace it with a new one. The injuries cause by breaking or splintered carbon fiber are very serious and hard to treat.

Conclusion:  Small delightfully devilish toy with huge pain potential.

Uberkinky Silicone Core Whip

Vendor: Uberkinky

The Uberkinky Silicone Core Whip

Construction

The design of this toy is a standard single tail leather whip one with an overall length of 63cm. At the bottom there is a 17cm long grip onto which a 13cm long loop is attached. There are knots at both ends of the 12cm long and 2.5cm thick grip section making it secure to hold onto even with large hands. Out of the grip comes the 46cm long tail which tapers from 27mm to 11mm until ending into a 40x18mm large tip.

Detail of the Handle

The core of the Uberkinky Silicone Core Whip is made out of strong and sturdy silicone. It is covered with stiff yet flexible red and black leather in a herringbone pattern.

Playing with it

This is one of four Silicone Core Whips Uberkinky recently introduced. There is also a 94cm one with a thickened tail eng and a five foot and five foot five inches “classic” single tail with a whistler style cracker. While these are great toys for large play spaces most kinksters tend to play in their bedroom or have – like me – a rather confined play space at home. So I chose the shortest of the four leather whips. The compact form factor of this whip enables intimate play. It is short enough to hit a sub’s ass who is strapped to a whipping bench and still have body contact.

Detail of the Thickened Tip

The throwing of the whip takes a little bit to get used to. While the leather covering the silicone core can be broken in a bit to fit your individual whipping style the core despite being flexible has a certain preferred direction it wants to be thrown. This is even more intensified by the thickened tip which pulls the tail once thrown. Both these factors make this whip especially good for beginners because the core guides you and allows for pretty accurate targeting after a short time. Whip masters who are used to break in their whips will have to adjust a bit. Despite the thickened tip the Uberkinky Silicone Core Whip is well balanced allowing for longtime whipping without tiring out the wrist.

Detail of the Holding Lopp

The impact sensation can be best described as a medium-severe sting with a thuddy afterglow. The impact of the thickened end stings quite a bit but not nearly as much as a cracker of a leather whip would. After the sting spike after the impact a thuddy sensation spreads out from the impact point and takes some time to fade away depending on the impact’s force. The marks this leather whip is leaving are bruises rather than welts and it never broke the skin during the testing.

Like all leather whips cleaning is a bit difficult. As always I recommend letting it hang in the sun for a week and let the UV radiation take care of the germs.

Conclusion: Compact whip with medium-sever pain sensation.

P.M. Body Leather Genital Flogger

The P.M. Genital Leather Flogger from Uberkinky

Vendor: Uberkinky

Construction

The basis of this toy are three 45cm long and 2.5cm wide pieces of flexible yet hard leather. The lower 11cm are slightly tapered and riveted together to form a grip. Around the bottom of the whip a leather piece is sowed and riveted which houses a d-ring which is handy for attaching the whip to a belt loop with a carabineer. Above the grip each piece of leather is cut into 4 straps making a total of 12 tails. The leather out of which the whip is made is sourced in Europe so is meets EU standards in regards of Chromium-6 and other possibly harmful substances. So it is safe to play with this whip even if it should leave some scratches.

Detail of the Grip with the attached D-Ring

Playing with it

When it comes to the play I personally find the product name “flogger” a bit misleading. Due to the “tails” not knotted together but riveted parallel the tails can’t be thrown but always fly parallel to the grip. Looking at the form of the leather pieces the toy is like three very long Tawses riveted together.

Detail of the 12 Tails

If you look at the toy, see a Tawse and wield it that way the toy makes more sense. The tails are long enough for properly spanking an ass, thighs, soles of the foot or even shoulders when the bottom is bound to a spanking bench. As for the genital part, the long tails properly work well on “flat” and “wide” area a vagina is (I don’t have females in my test panel) but for a dick the tails are too flexible and thin and thus evade the target.

The sensation of the tawse is a medium to sever sting. The rather hard and sharp tails are quite abrasive so after hitting the same body area multiple times there is a nice burning sensation. Though the tails are not severe enough to create some lasting marks beyond some red stripes. The abrasive qualities of cause mean being a bit cautious when hitting soft-skinned body areas like the glans.

Handling wise I am a bit torn: The flexible leather of the grip transmits a bit of the impact so you get good feedback on how well each stroke was. But even for me with a glove size 7 ½ the grip is too short and too thin. You have to cling a bit which can tire the hand.

Conclusion: Nifty and nasty compact impact toy with little ergonomic problems.

Ballistic Metal Viper Paddle

Vendor: Uberkinky

The Ballistic Metal Viper Paddle from Uberkinky

The Ballistic Metal Viper Paddle from Uberkinky

This Ballistic Metal paddle arrived just in time as a review sample from Uberkinky to be taken with me to Folsom Europe. Being a little bit like the Duracell Bunny on play at such events I was lucky to get enough play experience with it to write the review rather quickly because there were quite a lot reader questions for painful Spanking and Caning toys recently.

Detail of the Viper Paddle's Grip

Detail of the Viper Paddle’s Grip

Construction

The grip of this toy is made out of two tapered brushed aluminum plates. The shape makes for a secure comfortable grip while the material is light enough not to tire the wrist yet heavy enough for a good balance and counter weight when paddling. Two screws are keeping both plates together. Between those two the impact material is fettered. It is made out of 5mm thick flexible black rubber like material with hard edges. One side is somewhat smooth like very fine sand paper while the other side has a chevron texture with 1mm deep grooves. The viper’s “tongue” is triangular starting width of 4.5cm and converging to a tip over a length of 27cm. Like snake’s tongue it is split in the middle.

Sadly like the other Ballistic Metal toys I own there is no way a loop could be attached securely so you have to store the toy lying.

Detail of the Viper Paddle's Tongue's Two Surfaces

Detail of the Viper Paddle’s Tongue’s Two Surfaces

Playing with the Toy

This toy is not for the faint of heart! With a light tapping the sensation is not too intense yet an experience player will get to notion what this toy has in store. Put a little more force into it and you will quickly produce some intense sting sensation. Unlike other Spanking and Caning implements the Ballistic Metal Viper Paddle can create serious pain with little force. Most pain pigs I have used this paddle on could not stand a full set of full blows. This is due to the split tongue which dramatically reduces air resistance. Due to these properties this toy is not made for warm-up.

With that being said the paddle is extremely good for intense pain scenes or mind fuck. Once a sub is accustomed to this toy just let the rough chevron side travel lightly over the body and he will tense up with anticipation. The two sides also come in handy when you want to increase the intensity of a scene quickly. I drove a sub close to the edge with the smooth side and when he asked for more finished him up with the rough side. The abrasive friction of it adds a new quality and intensity to the sting. An even sharper sting can be created when you just flick the tips against the body. I have used the Ballistic Metal Viper Paddle in flogging scenes to add intense sting or in tit torture sessions for excruciating reactions. Due to the sharpness of the material I would not recommend hitting body areas with thin skin like the glans. From a more sensual point of view run the smooth cool grip over the hot and reddened body areas in the cool down periods.

Detail of the Viper Paddle's Split Tongue

Speaking of reddening: The Ballistic Metal Viper Paddle colors fairly quickly. Especially the rough side will leave some quickly fainting chevron marks if you really put some power into the blow. Despite the hard edges and abrasive surface even in intense scenes this toy has not drawn blood or caused bruises.

Being made out of synthetic materials cleaning this toy is very easy. Simply spray it with sanitizer and wipe it off. Due to the tongue being made out of rubber I would recommend keeping it away from oil and fat. Finally a piece of practical advice: The kinetic energy from the tongue’s impact naturally get transferred into the grip and thus onto the screws which can get loose. So after an intense scene check them and if necessary retighten them.

Conclusion: Vicious impact toy for serious pain pigs.

McHurt Slave Driver

Vendor: McHurt

Construction

Both Versions of the Short McHurt Slave Driver

Both Versions of the Short McHurt Slave Driver

These toys are basically build like traditional all leather riding whips were made before the shafts were made out of polymers. The handle is made out of four layers of English bridle leather which is sowed and glued together. Out of this handle the slapper develops. Depending on the version it is either a 25cm long and 1.5cm wide strap of bridle leather or four 27.5cm long 7mm wide square cut bridle leather straps. At the back end there is a woven knot and a leather loop. Both versions have a total length of 55cm without the loop.

The come in different color versions yet for some weird reason not in all black. I chose black with red accents which I guess will still fit most play rooms.

Playing with it

When I first showed these toys to a friend he said “Well, they kind of look like the child of a single tail and a riding whip” and that puts it really well. Both whips are vicious! Even a light tapping already produces some level of sting that with just a little bit more force becomes intense. Though the single slapper is a little bit less intense than the other one.

Detail of the Handle Turning into the Slapper

Detail of the Handle Turning into the Slapper

I like these toys for their handling. While in single tail terms the single strap one resembles a legree resp. dragon’s toung and the four square cut model is like a whistler, the handle of both toys are stiffer making them easier to control than a single tail. They are also just short enough to be used on a sub bound to a spanking bench yet just long enough to throw at the back of a sub bound to a St. Andrews Cross. Yet in this case most likely the tips only hit the back causing VERY intense pain. If you are more interested in the latter usage scenario there are longer versions of both toys available. Since McHurt doesn’t sell these toys online I sadly can’t tell you the exact length. If you are interested in them, just shoot them a mail.

Both toys mark fairly well and quickly. While the legree like produced more bruises, the whistler like whip can leave welts. A top of my test panel managed to break the skin with the whistler in a long scene. I could not recreate that yet it is something to be aware off. Especially since the leather has not surface treatment and thus is difficult to disinfect.

Fort Troff Aluminum Frat Paddle

The Fort Troff Aluminum Frat Paddle

The Fort Troff Aluminum Frat Paddle

Vendor: Ballistic Metal

Sometimes I wait so long to write a review that the shop where I have gotten the toy stopped selling it. Luckily in this case I found their original supplier which now makes the paddle a bit different. So please read this review careful where I point out the difference and check the pictures of the new store link if that is really the paddle you want to buy.

Construction

This paddle is shaped in the traditional fraternity paddle shape. It is made out of 0.7mm thick aircraft grade aluminum and weights 500g. The head is roughly 30cm by 8.5cm and features three rows of four respective five holes. The handle is 14.5cm by 3.5cm which at my Fort Troff paddle is covered with a rubber sheath for better grip but sadly lacks a hole for a loop. The Ballistic Metal version has three furrows engraved and a t-shape end for better grip. It also has a hole for a loop.

Detail of the Holes to Reduce Air Drag

Detail of the Holes to Reduce Air Drag

Playing with it

This is a nasty and delicate spanking implement! The holes drilled through the head reduce the air drag significantly so there is nothing to lessen the blow. Also, the material has no give so the entire kinetic force hits the sub’s body. So you quickly cross the threshold from stimulating tapping to rather stingy pain which can become excruciating with a lot of force. If you enter this area of pain please be careful. Being made out of metal it can break bones! So I recommend only use the most extreme force on well padded body like the thighs or the ass. And even there please be considerate.

Naturally with such a small handle the paddle is not very well balanced so be cautious when using this paddle not to tire out your wrist.

A nice material property of aluminum is the fact that is quickly takes on temperature. So when the area is nicely spanked red and warm dip the paddle into a bucket of ice water for a minute to let it cool down. The sensation of a cold paddle hitting a warm body area is quite unique.

Conclusion: Sever and indestructible spanking paddle.

Oxballs Ball Busting Paddles

Vendor: Oxballs/ Ballistic Metal/ The Kinksters

The Oxballs Spyro Ball Busting Paddle

The Oxballs Spyro Ball Busting Paddle

Design

The shape of this toy is the one of a traditional ball buster. First there is the handle which is made out of aircraft grade aluminum. It is 28.5cm long and 3.3cm wide. The lover 2/5 of the handle are covered with a rubber sheath for better grip. If you want to feel the aluminum in your hand you can take the rubber off. On the other end a 3.5cm thick silicone pad is attached. It is round with a diameter of 9cm. While one side is plain the other side has some texture on it. The Spyro features a vortex while the Stay has a puppy paw and the Basher a number of spikes.

The entire Spyro ball buster weights 500g.

Playing with it

What first struck me when picking up this toy for the first time was the balance. You can use it without tiring out your wrist for extended periods of time. This balance is good because this paddle offers a wide range of different pain sensations making it ideal for long elaborated scenes. The plain side is somewhat stingy despite the soft material and relatively high weight of the toy. The small diameter delivers the pain in a concentrated area. Because of that as the name says this toy is ideal for ball busting. Simply tie the balls down (best use on of Oxballs many stretchers and rings or for an even more intense sensation a metal ball stretcher) and start gently tapping against the balls with increasing intensity.

Detail of the Plain Backside of the Oxballs Spyro

Detail of the Plain Backside of the Oxballs Spyro

The sensation of the other side greatly depends which of the three different versions you own. The vortex of the Spyro traps air thus creating a cushion which makes the impact sensation a bit softer. With the Stay the initial impact area is smaller so the sting is a bit more intense. Also, it you are good at targeting and your sub is well restrained in place after only a few smacks you start leaving a paw shaped mark that depending on the intensity and duration of the scene will stay for a while. The Basher in my opinion is not really made for impact play. The spikes trap air, they bend and it is difficult to hit precisely with hit because you can slip during the impact. The spikes are more made for sensation play. Let the head travel over the sub’s body to tickle him or give him goose bumps. The sensation can be altered when using lube. Without the silicone is a bit sticky causing a rougher, choppy ride over the body, when using water-based lube is a smooth journey. Please only use water-based lube since silicone lube will disintegrate the toy!

If you have the Spyro or Stay you can grab the top using it as a round handle (due the spikes of the Basher I it hard to grab) to use the aluminum handle as a paddle. Of cause the ergonomics of this toy weren’t really layed out for this usage so your wrist will tire out quickly. Yet the sting of this lightweight, small paddle is intense!

Detail of the Vortex of the Oxballs Spyro

Additionally to the wide range of possible sensation the material makes this toy ideal for play parties. It is somewhat small, not too heavy and can be disinfected easily so you can use it on multiple play partners with just short cleaning breaks without having to worry about transmitting any bacteria.

A disadvantage that really annoyed me was the lack of a hole for a loop. I prefer to have a loop to secure the toy on my wrist so I don’t have to put it down when I check in on a sub which sadly it not possible with this toy. Same problem with storing it: While my other impact toys are hanging ready to grab in a scene I need to open a drawer to get this one. I know, this is a minor thing that doesn’t impact the toy’s performance yet it really annoys me.

Finally a word on availability: Sadly these great toys are a bit hard to come by especially in Europe. So if you are looking for another variety but the Basher you have to order it from the USA.
