Review: FlogMeBaby.comís Studded Paddle
This is quite the wicked little versatile thing. With one side smooth leather
for a bite and the other with spikes for more of a bite, there is nothing nice
about this paddle. We love it. It's small and easy to travel with. (Easily
tucks into my medium size and larger purses.) It's mean. It's perfect.
I am starting to have a rather wicked fascination with leather paddles. This
is our fourth one at this point, and I am constantly surprised at the range in
sensation they can offer. The
takes all that up a notch with the spiked side. Plus,
spikes are punk as fuck. I basically have to love this.
Flog Me Baby always blows me away by the quality their products have without
the high sticker price. Somehow they are able to offer real leather goods that
are functional and pretty while still being astonishingly affordable. I've
seen fake leather paddles that go for over $25, much less a studded real
In kink gear, materials and attention to detail are the two things that will
set apart an item from the rest. The Studded Paddle is well made with nice,
thick leather, so it has that criteria locked down. The attention to detail
was the thing that really stood out to me.
The handle has a
thin leather wrapping that gives the paddle a solid grip. There's a solid
metal loop for hanging this off of whatever your heart desires. The leather
piece that holds that ring on has pretty points and solid rivets. The red
stitching on the paddle matches the red wrap on the handle. And then, of
course, the wicked spikes feature down the sides of the paddle.
beauty of this paddle is that you can use both sides depending on how sadistic
you feel at that point in time. The blank side offers a nice thwack that leans
towards stingy. The spikey side takes that up a notch with a bite that you
won't forget. I, personally, adore when paddles find a way to utilize both
sides for different sensations.
Everything about the construction and
materials of this feels really solid. There is nothing here that I worry about
falling apart. The leather is nice and thick while still flexible. The studs
are well attached. The stitching and rivets are tight. I am picky about my
impact gear having really good quality, and I can't find anything to complain
This is an amazing
deal on a great little paddle. It's a nice stable that offers options. Plus,
it my the Archduke, Lord of Pants of the Domliest Type happy because it looks
totally metal. This is pretty, functional, and a great price. Who can complain
