From the Fifty Shades of Grey Official Pleasure Collection comes the Fifty Shades of Grey Sweet Sting Riding Crop.
As with all the other FSOG items it comes in a nicely presented cardboard box, which doesn’t make the item look tacky in any way. In fact I love the packaging on the FSOG collection; it looks extremely elegant and tasteful.
How it looks
I have to admit, I really do like this riding crop. It’s strong, flexible and does really look quite stunning with its black and silver design.
The riding crop has a lovely handle with silver metal fittings both above and under it. The handle itself is made from rubber and is 4.6 inches in length; which makes it incredibly easy to hold and wield.
Attached to the handle is a leather wrist strap, this has a length of 6 inches. Sewn into the wrist strap is the Fifty Shades of Grey merchandise tag with the name of the books wrote on it in silver. This makes it a must have item for fans of the book hoping to add a little bit of spice into their bedroom. If you’re not a fan of the book, don’t worry; the tag can be easily removed; without reducing the quality in any way.
The stem seems to be made of some kind of braided elasticated rope; although I’m not entirely sure of the actual material used. This comprises of 11.2 inches. The stem is extremely flexible due to the material it is made with.
And then there’s the important part; the silver coloured leather tip that rubs you, teases you and gives you just the right amount of sting; this has a surface area of 2 inches in length. Giving you just that right amount of ouch factor.
I have to say I absolutely love this item, and was so excited to receive it. The Sweet Sting toy comes beautifully packaged, and at first I was shocked by the sheer size of the box. It is bigger than I expected, but this didn’t put me off at all it turned out to be a great length. The box itself looks very elegant, but is nothing compared to the elegance and beauty of the crop.
When I pulled out the inner box to revel the riding crop, I was taken aback by how beautiful and elegant it looked. And then that was it I couldn’t wait to get started and took it out of the box, gave myself a few test smacks before my other half promptly removed it from my grasp and advised me that this is his toy to use and not mine! Well, as upsetting as it was to have my new toy taken away from me, the OH soon made up for it as he put it to good use.
As it’s brought down against the skin it makes the most amazing whacking noise. Which I have to admit is as much of a turn on as the whooshing noise as it’s being wielded. It also felt amazing being dragged up and down my body making it perfect for teasing.
Cleaning the crop couldn’t be easier. Just wipe it down with a damp cloth after use.
All in all I believe this is a fantastic riding crop and that it would suit both experienced users and beginners. The Sweet Sting Riding Crop is available at SexToysUK
