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

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.

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!

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.

Mr S Nasty Rubber Stick & Nasty Lil’ Rubber Paddle

Vendor: Mr S

Mr S Nasty Rubber Stick & Nasty Lil' Rubber Paddle

Mr S Nasty Rubber Stick & Nasty Lil‘ Rubber Paddle

Construction

As the name of these toys already states they are made out of rubber. While the scent is not as intense as on a piece of rubber clothing they have a faint, for most rubber fetishists stimulating tire scent. The stick is 46cm long, has a diameter of 1.9cm and weights approx. 150g. The main body of the paddle measures 18x8cm and has a 12×3.5cm long grip. The paddle is 1.2cm thick and weights 250g.

Both toys have a hole drilled through their rear end through which with leather string forms a strap.

Playing with it

A friend of mine from Chicago calls the Nasty Rubber Stick his “ouch stick” and right he is. Despite the considerably high weight for an impact toy, the little give in the material makes them stingy as hell! I recommend approaching the max. impact power very slowely cause the blast they deliver is intense and even a mild to medium continuous tapping can be agonizing. Naturally both toys color a sub very quickly. Even a medium blow will leave a red mark on the skin that will stay for some time. When you put real force into the single hits and concentrate on one area bruises will inevitably occur!

Detail of the Leather Strap

Detail of the Leather Strap

If you want to get a somewhat mild impact sensation out of these toys I recommend snapping them. Being very flexible the snap back not fast and thus the sensation is a mild thuddish sting.

Rubber conducts temperature very well. So as the cheeks of the sub begin to turn red and warm the paddle will get warmer. Of cause this also works in the other direction. For an interesting twist stick the paddle in a bucket of ice water. This effect isn’t as strong as with metals and due to begin frail when frozen don’t put the rubber toys into the freezer before a scene. For that I would recommend aluminum impact toys.

A big advantage of these toys is the material: When you play with different partners at a play party simple spray disinfection spray on the toys and rub it off. The rubber will take no damage from it. While you can use silicone oil or lube to make these toys shiny like rubber gear I would not recommend it. The silicone will make the toy slippy then hitting the sub and create a film on the impact area. So if you switch to another toy it will pick up the silicone lube.

Conslusion: Sever and low maintenance impact toy.

Christmas Gift Tip I – Kinky Ornaments

Mr S Reindeer Muzzle & Leather Santa Hat

Mr S Reindeer Muzzle & Leather Santa Hat

It is only four Sundays until Christmas so the annual tradition of Christmas gift ideas for the discriminating kinkster who has everything starts again. Today will be all about kinky ornaments to put onto or use with a sub.

The perverts at Mr S really put some thought into this year’s Christmas season. They took their popular leather Woof! Muzzle and turned it into a reindeer muzzle. I could imagine that at the next pup mosh some pups might be interested into a reindeer. And they also thought about the handlers who want to get into the Christmas spirit with creating a leather Santa hat.

Oxballs Jingle Balls Cockring

Oxballs Jingle Balls Cockring

If you fear you might loose the sub at a the Christmas gangbang the new Jingle Balls Aluminum Cockring from Oxballs might be the right thing to get him. It comes in three classic holiday colors: green, red and silver. What sets this cockring apart is a sleigh bell mounted at the bottom so you can hear where the sub is moving. This might be especially interesting when you put the microphone of an e-stim box next to the bell…

Mr S Leather & Neoprene Stockings

Mr S Leather & Neoprene Stockings

If the pup, sub or even the top has been nice all year long they might be in for a treat on Dec 6th. And what more stylish and appropriate way than to exchange the old knitted socks with either neoprene or leather stockings from Mr S. Depending on your preference you can get them either in black or red which might be a good way to subtly tell your dom whether you want an XXL plug or rather a single tail for Christmas.

Mister B Seagrass Flogger

Mister B Seagrass Flogger

In northern Germany we have a little own tradition when it comes to Saint Nicholas day which is Dec 6th. Instead of hanging stockings onto the mantel piece we put out polished boots in front of our doors. The people who have been nice all year get their boot filled by Saint Nicholas with candy and small presents (remember: the larger the boot, the more space for stuffing). But the people who have been bad just get bundle of twigs from Knecht Ruprecht. I haven’t found a bundle of twigs I would recommend for impact play but I once saw a guy playing with this seagrass flogger from Mister B which comes fairly close to a bundle of twigs. The good thing is that it is a really good toy which leaves a lasting impression so hopefully the bad boy will remember to be better next year.

Construction

The construction of this toy is fairly simple: 15 2mm thick plastic strings with a 3mm thick bead ever 4mm are glued into a flexible plastic tube for approx. 16cm usable length. At the end of the tube is a 20mm long and 17.5mm thick dome-shaped grip so the toy can rest between two fingers a bit like a flogger. At the end of the toy there is a key ring for easy and convenient carrying around everywhere.

Detail of the Tubes with Beads

Playing with it

The key ring is a nice touch because this really made to be carried around by a dom at all times. Despite the small size and the flexible tubes this toy can hurt! Depending on the energy you put into the blows it can deliver up to an intense sting. The small size makes it perfect for immediate punishment. I lent it out to a friend of mine who carried it around in the inside pocket of his jacket to hit the finger tips of his sub in training every time he reached out without asking first. Due to the small size and light weight it takes some practice to control this toy when winding up for big blows like in a spanking session. I had a bit of fear that the glue would fail me in intense scene but this toy hasn’t let me down.

But to be honest this toy isn’t really made for large impact play scene. It is a delicate toy which is ideal where finess is needed. I surprised a sub quite a bit who didn’t expect an impact sensation on his nipples. When it comes to CBT a word of warning is in place: Yes, due to the small size and the sting it is ideal for beating wall and shafts. But if the dick is really throbbing hard and the guy is uncut or has frail skin, don’t put too much force into strikes onto the glans because the movement energy will concentrate into the small beads and it can break the skin which you don’t want on an organ with blood jammed into it.

Like most multi-“tail” impact toys you can use the stinger whip also as a sensual toy by just letting the tip of the tube travel over the sub’s body. If you have a elastic band at hand, bind the tips together which will create a different sensation.

A nice thing in my opinion is that this toy nearly doesn’t color. Of cause some battle marks after a scene are always nice but if you use it like my friend and an educational instrument leaving no marks is a good thing. And since it is made out of plastic cleaning is very easy so you can quickly use it on different partner.

HML Isolation Hood

MA66If the Mr S Asylum Gear I featured yesterday are not an extreme enough bondage sensation ake a look at the HML Isolation Hood.

Detail of the Ear Padding and Face hidden behind the Front Zipper

Detail of the Ear Padding and Face hidden behind the Front Zipper

The hood is made out of soft black hide that hugs the subs skull. Above the ears thick padding is sowed between the two layers of leatehr so when you lace the hood tightly around the victims head all noises that reach the subs ear muffled at best. The front of the hood features a zipper so when it is closed the person wearing it can be turned into a leather gimp. Once opened it is revealed that the sub’s eyes are covered by piece of leather making him blind even when the zipper is opened. However, the mouth is still accessible so it can be used, fucked or abused without the sub seeing who is giving him pleasure or pain making this hood ideal for (literate) mind fuck or humiliation scenes.

The hood costs 495€ and can be bought at HML in Bremen or through their web shop.

Uberkinky Rounded Handle Leather Flogger

Vendor: Uberkinky

The guys from Uberkinky send me this flogger from their flogger collection to review and I took it as a welcomed invitation to get some decent flogging action again after a stressful semester.

Construction

The first thing you notice when you unpack this toy is the rich smell of leather. It comes for its 24 tails which are about 55cm long and are angle cut at the end. They are made out of two-tone calf leather. The bottom is made out of soft red suede while the top is a little bit harder black calf hide which for my taste is a bit over-dressed. But this is just a personal taste: If you like a bit more sting let it stay this way. If you enjoy a bit more natural and softer touch just carefully (!!!) use some leather oil on the surface of the tails.

Detail of the Two Color Tails with Angle Cut

Detail of the Two Color Tails with Angle Cut

The tails are attached to the handle by a classical woven leather knot. The handle is made out of stainless steel and is 17cm long from which 12cm are a simple round bar and the last 5cm are an a bit elaborated round tip. Onto this tip a leather loop is riveted.

Playing with it

When I first used this flogger in a scene I was surprised how well it performed for the price: The tails fly really well and due to all the tails having the same length you can hit precisely. With the medium weight this flogger is quite versatile. From a good sting through the angle cut tail ends to some decent thud this flogger covers a good range of sensation. If you practice a bit (and maybe consult in advance Uberkinky’s Beginner’s Guide to Flogging) you can have an entire scene from warm-up to an agonizing finally with this flogger. The leather is hard enough to leave some very subtle welts that fade within a few hours the longest and colors the sub’s back quite well.

Detail of the Rivet that Attached the Loop to the Handle

Detail of the Rivet that Attached the Loop to the Handle

Such a scene with just this flogger is also possible because it is very well balanced despite the heavy stainless steel. All test tops theoretically flogged extensively and continuously with this toy without tiring out their wrist. Practically what almost ruins this toy for an extensive flogging scene is the way the loop is attached to the handle. Due to the loop being a bit small and inflexible when you put the loop around the wrist and grip the handle bar it limits the movement of your wrist which makes precise flogging very difficult. Another common way of holding the flogger is putting the tip at the end of the handle between either between forefinger and middle finger. The huge rivet and thick leather strap of the loop makes this position uncomfortable. At the moment I am looking at a method to get rid of the rivet and just attach a leather loop around the base of the tip. Because otherwise this flogger is awesome value for money.

Detail of the Knot

Detail of the Knot

Besides the pain inducing aspect this flogger has also some sensual qualities. Once the sub’s back is nicely warmed and red from the flogging just let the cool steel tip of the flogger wander over the lightly bruised skin to make the sub shiver. This effect can be enhanced if you cool the tip in advance a bit with an ice cube. For an even lighter scene let the sub lay down onto his belly, blindfold him and just let the tips of the tails lightly travel over his back.

Mister B Leather Covered Riding Crop

Mister B Padded Leather Covered Riding Crop

Mister B Padded Leather Covered Riding Crop

I came across this toy when I was looking up the link for last week’s review of the Mister B Spanking Ties. As you probably know I am a great lover of thuddy (and thus mostly padded) impact toys. So I was excited to see that Mister B added another padded toy to their collection.

This toy has the shape of a more traditional military style riding whip with one long padded slapper and a long grip. Due to the size is promises to sit comfortable in your boot shaft while walking around and long enough to hit both cheeks of your spankee at the same time. And with a price of 33,50€ it is a good deal for a padded impact toy.

Mister B Spank Ties

Vendor: Mister B

The spank ties twisted for maximum delivered impact

The spank ties twisted for maximum delivered impact

Construction

This toy is basically an 80cm long and 1,5cm thick rod. In its core is a bendable spring which will take and hold nearly every shape you twist it into. This spring is covered by soft, charcoal colored padding. On the end there are black plastic hemispheres so there are no sharp edges.

This toy is sold in pairs.

Playing with it

Like the name implies this is a dual purpose toy: It can be used for bondage and for impact play.

The biggest problem of this toy in both usage situations is the handling: It takes a lot of practice until you can bend this toy in the desired form because the spring is rather stiff. This of cause has the advantage that the ties will stay in the shape once bent.

However once you mastered this toy it is a quite nifty bondage device. You fold the rod in the middle and twist it around a rail (a bed post or shower handle for example), than you place the wrist of the sub onto the twisted part and twist the rod again two or three times tightly enough that the hand cannot slip through the loop. It takes a bit of practice to find the right technique to make these twists soling and inescapable but it is worth the effort. I usually have a pair of these with me when I am on business trips because I can ties someone onto furniture in a hotel room without having to carry around large quantities of rope or leather restraints. I especially like tying someone to shower rails (Please check if the rails can handle a wiggling sub without getting ripped out of the wall before you tie someone to them!) because if you tape off the gap between the padding and the hemispheres the ties are waterproof. Of cause the bondage aspect is not limited to attaching subs to furniture. You can also twist cuffs, cockring-ballstretcher-combos and many other things out of these ties.

When being used as an impact toy you need to adjust your play style a bit: Since the core is flexible a lot of the movement energy is lost in the deformation. So I enjoy using this toy especially for beginners either as a straight rod for “caning” or when folded twice or thrice as a “paddle”. For added stability and thus more impact delivered onto the sub’s body fold the rod in half and tightly twist both ends around each other. Since most of the mass of this toy is padding the sensation is still more on the thuddy side. But especially if you hit sensitive body areas like the glans or the nipple with the plastic hemispheres this toy has quite some bite.

Conslusion: Very versatile toy, excellent for travelling but a bit hard to handle.

IKEA Proppmätt Paddle/ Chopping Board

Vendor: IKEA

The IKEA Proppmätt Paddle/ Chopping Board

The IKEA Proppmätt Paddle/ Chopping Board

A couple of weeks ago I was strolling through IKEA with a kinky friend, talking about a spanking scene when we walked through the kitchen department and I started to wonder why there was a wood paddle on display in all the kitchens (yeah, I know, I have a dirty mind). So I picked up one to see how well it performs in the playroom.

Construction

Being actually a chopping board it resembles the form of a traditional one: It has a body which measures 14.5cmx19cm and a handle which is 4.5cmx10.5cm. The sides of the paddle are not straight but have a chamfer which makes it surprisingly easy and comfortable to hold. In the top quarter of the handle there is a hole through which a leather strap can be put for a hand loop.

Detail of the unfinished wood which can be improved by sanding

Detail of the unfinished wood which can be improved by sanding

The paddle is made out of 16mm thick solid glued beech wood and weights approximately 400g. Having been produced for cooking the surface is surprisingly smooth but just to make sure I would recommend using fine sandpaper on it once or twice especially on the chamfer. The wood is also untreated which will make it hard to disinfect and it will easily absorb sweat, lube, piss or other fluids in your playroom. You can prevent the latter by oiling (you can use standard olive oil for it or take other professional wood oils for coloring the wood) or wax it. In order to make it disinfectable you need to put a durable protecting coating onto it for which I would recommend going to your local hardware store and ask an expert.

Finally a piece of advice when buying one: IKEA produces good quality for the price they are asking so take a good look at the piece you are picking up if it isn’t damaged. I didn’t and a bit of wood cracked at the drilling. It doesn’t affect the using of the paddle but doesn’t look as good as it could.

Playing with it

I really enjoyed playing with this paddle. It lays good in the hand and has just the right size to still be able to hit individual body parts like ass cheeks or thighs. The impact sensation has some variety in it: Being on the heavier side of impact toys it can produce some thud when hitting with little force. However having a hard surface and nearly no flex in it as soon as you put some force into your blows it stings as hell. It colors the skin fairly quickly but the red fades away quite soon – if you been modest with your hits. I would call this toy a bruiser because it left some remarkable and one-week lasting bruises on three subs without having the intention of doing so.

The negative side of IKEA quality: A cracked drilling

The negative side of IKEA quality: A cracked drilling

Since this paddle has not been designed to be used as an impact toy, it has some shortcomings. The biggest is that it is hugely imbalanced towards the body. You need a lot of practice and strong muscles to perform an entire impact scene without tiring out your wrist.

Despite some shortcoming I would recommend this paddle especially for people just getting into impact play. It costs less than a coffee at Starbucks and performs surprisingly well if you approach it carefully and take your time to explore slowly the potential of this toy.
