Another item from the DOMINIX Deluxe range by Lovehoney; I received this item as a lucky dip item and I felt very lucky indeed it’s so cute! I know, I know Bondage items should not be classed as cute, but I can’t help it. However just because I class it as cute don’t be deceived; it is cute but it does pack a sensational punch.
There’s no messing around when it comes to the DOMINIX Deluxe Leather Heart Slapper Paddle. The packaging itself is simple it comes in a polythene bag to protect the item, and that’s it. I mean it’s a paddle; it doesn’t really need any other form of packaging.
How it looks:
With most of the items from the DOMINIX Deluxe range it is genuine leather, the leather itself has a Matte finish, which I do like as I don’t really like the look of shiny leather. With it being genuine leather you get that gorgeous leather smell. It can’t be only me who finds that smell such a turn on and the fact the smell was coming from a paddle made it even better.
The length of the paddle from tip to the bottom of the handle is 12.1 inches, the length of the handle is 5 inches, however there seems to be some of long cylinder shaped item inside the handle which gives the whole handle a length of 7 inches, 5 of those inches you’re able to grip. That then leaves a 5.1 inch spanking surface 6 inches if you want to use the tip of the handle, the width of the spanking surface is 3 inches which further spreads the sensation.
This paddle has a split effect essentially that means that there are two spanking surfaces attached at the bottom to each other, giving it loud ‘slapping’ effect when brought down against your skin; the surface also has a cut out heart shape detail on both sides.
Attached to the base of the handle is a loop, this can be used to wrap around your hand when in use or alternatively hanging you paddle up after use. It can be removed if it’s more of a hinder than an asset though.
All in all this has to be the cutest and smallest paddle I own; it’s also the only split and cut out designed paddle I own too.
I actually really like this paddle, it may be cute and small but it does have quite a whack to it when used and the heart detail really adds something to it.
I love the smell of it. What can I say? I have issues and the smell of leather is such a turn on, and then you have the sound of a paddle making contact with your skin which is also a turn on; it’s like a double dose with the smell combined with the loud smacking as it hit my thigh and backside it sounded and felt amazing.
The leather isn’t really that soft so it doesn’t give the quilted type of blow that some paddles may give, if you’re used to a more softer blow then you may be surprised by this paddle as it’s more the stingier sensation. Considering the paddles size it is rather surprising at the sensations it can create, you can get everything from light spankings and slaps depending on the force used. And the heart with enough practice and using the right amount of force you can actually leave behind this little heart on your lovers or subs backside which gives it somewhat of a naughty reminder of things done..
All in all it is a great little paddle and I really look forward to receiving little hearts on my arse after being punished. It really brings fourth the ‘I punish you because I love you’ sentiment.
