Paddle


Paddle

A Paddle is a flat surface made from leather or wood that you commonly use to hit the sub’s body. You use this to discipline the sub when they refuse to be obedient. As a sub, you’re expected to obey the commands of your dom. There are established rules agreed upon before the play. Subs follow the rules and commands. Failure to do so is meted with punishments.

To carry out the consequence of disobedience, a paddle is one of the BDSM tools used. Spanking can go from light to intense depending on the severity of the mistake or whatever threshold the sub can take.

Paddles used for spanking are available in a variety of types, designs, and materials. Aside from that, not all paddles are created equal in terms of function. Some can give you light and stingy hits. Others can give you thuddy blows. That’s why it’s vital to talk with your sub first before buying a paddle. They’re the ones that’ll be hit by the paddle, so they have to be involved in the decision-making. Talk about their pain threshold and the material and design they prefer for the play.

History of Paddling

Paddling, or the act of spanking using a paddle, didn’t start as a kinky thing. It actually has a dark past surrounding it. Paddling originated as corporal punishment for sailors. There were early references in Babylonian times, sharing how sailors breaking the rules are getting spanked by boards used on barrel planks. Eventually, paddling has made it to America and became a popular type of punishment for slaves.

It wasn’t until the late 1700s when some people recognized the sexual nature of paddling. Marquis De Sade, a French nobleman, philosopher, and writer, published two of the most controversial erotic novels of all time— 120 Days of Sodom and Justine. He tackled BDSM-related themes in these novels, showcasing the pleasure one can get from spanking, paddling, whipping, restraining, and other deviant acts. Though most people were still iffy with the stories he had put out, some kinksters still consider him as the one responsible for the birth of BDSM. As of today, paddling is now known as a common kinky act for couples interested in BDSM.

Types of Paddle

Looking for a kinky paddle that can fit your needs? Before you start adding various paddles to your cart, you should know the type of paddle that you’re getting. This will ensure that the paddles you’re purchasing fit your own and your partner’s preferences.

There are two main types of paddle. The first one is the straight paddle. It’s basically the paddle that you’re most familiar with. It’s sleek, straight, and usually has some novelty accessories in it, such as studs. The next type is the slapper. It’s designed to have two paddles that are put together in layers. When you spank someone with this type, the top layer will slap the bottom layer, creating more impact on the overall slap.

If you’re a beginner in impact play, we suggest going a straight paddle first. Slappers tend to be more painful as compared to straight ones. We also suggest opting for a sleek paddle made from wood or leather— paddles that have holes or studs may create extra impact and are more painful than the simpler ones.

Care & Maintenance

Unlike other BDSM toys, paddles are relatively easy to clean. All you need to do is wipe your paddle with a damp towel with soap in it, wipe it with a dry towel, then let it air dry for a bit. You can also use a sex toy cleaner for a more convenient cleaning process. Don’t submerge your paddle in the water, as it can deteriorate the toy’s surface and negatively affect its rigidity.

If your paddle is made with leather, we suggest using a leather conditioner; just make sure to do a discoloration test first (putting the conditioner on a small patch of the paddle and observe for changes). We suggest applying some mineral oil for wood paddles every now and then just to preserve their overall look and texture.

Once you’re done cleaning the paddle, store it inside a satin pouch. This will minimize exposure to dust and dirt. Additional tip: Don’t use your paddle with multiple partners for good measure
