Bottoms Up

My weekly review of a least favourite implement, as expressed by readers.



This week - Paddles.

Dawn from His Spanked Brat writes....


The first is what I refer to as the "holey paddle". 


That thing smarts and not in a good way. It literally feels like being whacked with a block of wood.  It doesn't even feel good over jeans for goodness sake! Definitely should be outlawed if you ask me. I probably shouldn't complain too much though since it does not get used that often...probably because I move too much when it is applied...lol.

The second is the rubber paddle. 




You can't see it in the picture but it has treads on it. Yep just like a tire. That thing burns. I think the real reason I don't like it is the texture. It is not very nice on an already tender bottom. It is also super heavy and a few swats make a huge impact!

It doesn't take much of either of these to improve my attitude/behavior...hmmm...maybe that is why he likes them ;)


Dawn shared more.....

The second one is a otk paddle made of rubber. Smooth on one side and textured block pattern on the other side. I am not a fan of rubber at all so that is why it is not a favorite. Now that being said it is not the worst rubber implement I have ever felt. Some people might like it. I don't care for the texture myself. The Man has a much worse rubber paddle that use to be quite large before he decided to cut it down. It is actually thicker and packs way more of a wallop. The very first time he used it on me we very quickly discovered that it was not for me. I had a pretty extreme, negative reaction to it. But that is what experimenting with different toys is for, so you can know what you do and do not like. To make it more clear, My guy actually does not like rubber. He is a way bigger fan of leather and wood. And he doesn't use it on me any more though he may jokingly refer to it as a warning on occasion. We have a Top/bottom relationship and not in a very disciplinary sort of way. For us spanking is fun and something we both enjoy. Me getting them and him giving that is

The holey paddle does get used on occasion but I am very warmed up first. It's not ever going to be added to my favorite things but I think all relationships are about some give and take. Every spanking is not about me. Sometimes I am willing to take some swats with something only he enjoys just because it makes me happy to make him happy. And he claims he likes that one because it makes me wiggle so cutely...lol.

Trust me. Our spanking relationship is very consensual. And for those actually brave enough to be truly curious about the rubber implements I have this to say.

A.) Only with someone you really trust to listen to your feedback.

B.) Be prepared for a pretty intense burn. Start off slow and you can always build up IF you find you like it. Personally I think only people who truly love hard spankings are going to like rubber implements. 

Thanks Dawn. Can't image what the texture of the rubber paddle would feel like.  


Don't forget, if any bottoms, male or female who would like to do a review of their LEAST favourite implement and why, please email me ronniesoul@gmail.com. I'll keep it secret if it's just for me but if it's OK for me to post it please say so. Pictures are always good.

See you next week for another Bottoms Up.

As mentioned last week I'm not a big fan of paddles anyway but those look terrible. I sympathise with Dawn if they are being used on her. My Mistress doesn't own a rubber paddle (although she may get one if she reads this) so I can only imagine how it would feel but I'm sure I wouldn't enjoy it.

Thank you for sharing.

MrJ said...

These sound like very efficient implements for punishment (much effect for little effort on the side of the Top), more than for spanking for pleasure or relaxation.
What material is the second made of?

kiwigirliegirl said...

Wooden paddles hurt any whichway. ..not a favourite of mine either rubber sounds ok. I've been tempted to get a rubber one.. .one day

PK said...

I'm not dead set against paddles, but that rubber one dose seem wicked. Lighter paddles can be a lot of fun, but even they can get serious very quickly.

Hugs,
PK

Our Bottoms Burn said...

I have to wonder about bottoms that allow anything to be used that is not wanted. We think it should be consensual. This dom/master/hoh can be carried to far. Just our opinion.

Hermione said...

We don't have a paddle with holes, but we DO have a rubber one much like the one in the picture. it is pure evil and I just might consider burying it in the garden.

Hugs,
Hermione

Minelle Labraun said...

I don't think I would like rubber..especially with treads. Major stingy!

Thanks for the info!

Roz said...

Thank you Dawn and Ronnie.

Oh ouch! Don't think I would like rubber either!

Hugs,
Roz

sunnygirl said...

Oh so ouchy looking and sounding. Sorry for you.

Wilma Rubble said...

When I saw the rubber one on Cane-ac I was curious if it would be like our silicone spreader. Which is also EVIL.

ronnie said...

Simon - Don't think I'd enjoy it. Better make sure your Mistress doesn't stop by:) Thanks Simon.

Joey - Thanks for stopping by.

MrJ - I can imagine a top wouldn't need much efforts with either of these paddles. The second one is made of rubber. Thanks MrJ.

KG - Think I'd like to try rubber myself. Thanks KG.

PK - I've always wanted a paddle with holes, maybe I wont bother now:) Thanks PK.

OBB - Everyone involved in TTWD is different and that's what I like. As you know we don't have a dom/master/hoh/slave/sub relationship but I hardly get a choice on what P uses - which I like:) Cheers OBB.

Hermione - Or maybe you could ask Ron to use it next time he spanks you and tell us all about it:) Thanks Hermione.

Minelle - I just can't image what the rubber one would feel like. Thanks Minelle.

Roz - I've had a rubber slipper used so I wonder if that would be the same. Thanks Roz.

SG - If I had a choice, I think I'd go for the holey paddle.

Wilma - I need to try rubber:) Thanks Wilma.

Love,
Ronnie

To Ronnie- Thanks for letting me take part in this. I have been enjoying seeing there other points of view from week to week :)

Thanks for sharing...I think I'll avoid both... :-)

Ami Starsong said...

I wonder if you get tread marks from the second paddle? Apparently some people have paddles like the first one, only with heart shapes cut out of them!

I think I'll stay with my leather paddle!

Hugs

No brainer...I'd run a mile if I saw either darken our bedroom.

I find rubber to be awful and too severe. I'd like the spanking to last a bit and not have me bruised and burned out 5 swats in. Some wood paddles I do like.

Hey there! I understand this is sort of off-topic however I needed to ask.
Does running a well-established blog such as yours require a large
amount of work? I'm brand new to operating a blog but I do write in my diary every day. I'd like to start a blog so I will be able to share my experience and feelings online.
Please let me know if you have any kind of recommendations
or tips for brand new aspiring bloggers. Appreciate it!

Dawn - Really interesting review.Thanks.

Terps - Could be the right decision:) Thanks Terps.

Ami - I've seen the paddles with heart shape. I've wanted to try a paddle with holes. On my wish list. Thanks Ami.

Sarah - There are good and bad paddles:) Thanks Sarah.

Lea - I really must try rubber for experimental purposes:) Thanks Lea.

Anon - What sort of blog do you want to start?

Love,
Ronnie

Anastasia Vitsky said...

Ouch, rubber!

My absolute least favorite implement is the cane, but everyone knows that already. *shudder* I think these least favorite implement posts should come with warnings. :D

ronnie said...

Ana - And the cane is one of my favourites:)

I do like that book cover, Thanks Ana.

Love,
