I can honestly say that no sex toy website (That I’ve come across thus far) excites me more than the bondage selection of the MEO website. They have such a varied and beautiful selection that I have an incredibly long wish list of things that I want from there. Whilst I do love the website because the items are amazing, the pictures are seriously NSFW – so I’d highly suggest not browsing it until you’re alone or around people that either aren’t bothered what you’re looking for, or that you’re not embarrassed about. I’ll admit, that sometimes the pictures on the website aren’t the most flattering and I’m not a fan of the video pictures depicting the product being used; at all, but I assure you, the quality of the bondage items is amazing.
Everything that I’ve received from MEO has been incredibly well made, aesthetically pleasing and fit for purpose. I expect all of the items that I have from MEO to last a life time with proper care, and the two paddles that I’m reviewing now are no different.
I came across these two paddles and instantly I wanted them. In so many ways they’re basically the same paddle – yet they’re both incredibly different. The design of both paddles is similar, they’re both the exact same size, made from the same materials, the handles are both coated in black silicone and the spanking surface has the same thickness and length. The only difference between the two paddles is that one has strategically placed holes throughout it. Thirteen to be exact, one of the paddles has a completely smooth spanking surface; and the other has thirteen ‘bullet holes’ that each have a diameter of 0.6inches.
I’ve owned paddled made from a variety of materials over the years, but the HURTME Bulletproof paddles are the first paddles that I’ve had that are made from plastic. Because of this when the paddles were used on me I was initially surprised at the sting that is produced by them. I have no idea why, but, I expected the paddles to have less of a sting than some of the wooden paddles I own. This wasn’t the case at all. The HURTME Bulletproof paddles are lightweight and flexible meaning that depending on the force used behind them, they can really pack a punch and it leaves your arse beautifully red within minutes.
As previously mentioned both paddles are the same size, they have a total length of 17.6inches and a spanking surface of 11.2 inches in length, 3.5 inches wide and a thickness of 0.2 inches. Both handles are made of plastic and are coated in a high gloss black silicone; this is not only functional because it enables you to have a good grip on your paddle and stops it from slipping, but also I think it makes them look pretty smart too. The HURTME Bulletproof paddles are amply named due to the fact that they’re made from the same plastic that’s used to make bulletproof windows. However, I do laugh at the irony of a paddle being named the HURTME Bulletproof paddle with holes, because let’s face it, how bulletproof can a holy paddle actually be? I have no desire to find out.
So, what’s with the holes? Well, the idea behind the holes is that when swinging a paddle air can get trapped behind the spanking surface, this slows down the force at which a blow can be delivered, thus the pain inflicted is not as severe as one may like. Holes placed throughout the spanking surface limit the amount of air that can be trapped behind it, thus increasing the sting that can be received. Also, the ‘bullet holes’ add a little more to the pain factor as the holes end up in a way digging in to the skin which in turn produces more pain, and an even redder and welt filled arse.
When I first received the paddles I have to admit, I was more than a little concerned about how durable they would be. I had images of them cracking against my rather large arse when my partner was delivering the harder blows. Thankfully that so far hasn’t been the case, and I’ve stopped fearing that it will be. The website claims that these paddles won’t shatter or crack like plexiglass or acrylic paddles could.
Both paddles have the ability to leave my arse incredibly red – the smooth paddle whilst it is able to create a fantastic sting, it obviously doesn’t leave my arse as red or nearly as tender as the HURTME Bulletproof paddle with holes does. I do however love to have the smoother one rubbed against my tender backside during and after use.
I’ve found that I actually enjoy using both paddles at different times. There are some days where I want to receive a little bit more pain than others, and other days where I want a sting without the welts, which is when I’d reach for the Bulletproof paddle without the holes.
I really enjoy both of these paddles, and I expect that they will see some regular use. The only downside is the price, whilst both paddles are incredibly well made and durable the HURTME Bulletproof paddle has a price tag of £67.31 (at the time of writing this) and the HURTME Bulletproof paddle with holes has a price tag of £84.35 (at the time of writing this) which in my opinion is pretty expensive. Though, I have seen smaller paddles than these have price tags of almost £40, so they are in line with what other similar items are priced at.
I have to say that both of these paddles have exceeded my expectations, they’re easy to use, and comfortable to hold which makes using them a dream. As with most paddles, they have the ability to produce softer blows, and depending on the force used behind them far stinger blows. Of the two paddles the holey paddle does inflict much more pain. One of my favourite things about these paddles is the fact that they’re transparent, this way when I’m inflicting pain I can see the welts forming and the reddening of the arse whilst it’s still in use. What can I say? I’m a bit of a sadist.
