Have I mentioned before how much I love the Tantus silicone paddles? I think I may have boasted about it once or twice in my Thwack review, and if that one wasn’t enough to cement my love for these malicious little paddles, then how about my Tantus Pelt review? I’m on a mission, like a Pokémon fan girl I want to collect them all. I want every single Tantus silicone paddle in my collection to create a silicone paddle army. They may all be made from silicone but they are all very much different. Each one has its own charms, its own particular skill that makes owning them all not only practical but also a necessity.
Like both the Thwack and Pelt paddles, the Wham Bam is made in its entirety from silicone. This is what makes it so perfect. Due to their non-porous nature, silicone paddles are ideal for some bondage situations; it can be sterilised after each use and used between partners. This is my third Tantus silicone paddle and, of those three, it’s the most difficult to manoeuvre. Measuring 15 inches in total length, it’s far more flexible than the Thwack and Pelt. The spanking surface has a length of 9.8 inches, a width of 2 inches and a depth of 0.2 inches.
Due to the length of the Wham Bam, I found it difficult to master, initially. But with a little bit of practice, I was soon wielding this thing like a professional. What I love about the Wham Bam is what I first found troubling: the length! At first, when using it, I felt awkward swinging it – my finishes wasn’t as flush on the arse as I’d have liked them to be. But then, as if by magic (sheer determination and practice), I managed to get the perfect balance with the top of the paddle hitting her left arse cheek and the rest of the paddle following through over to her right, almost instantly. It was glorious, and the sound it made was music to my ears. The next thing was using it on her thighs, this time the opposite way, so that the spanking part closest to the handle hit her first with the rest of the spanking surface following through, and somewhat wrapping around the side of her thigh.
It wasn’t long before she decided that it was no longer my turn to play with this thing, it was hers. You see, my bondage partner isn’t overly keen being on the receiving end, she’d much rather be dishing it out. That’s not a bad thing, because as much as I like to be on the giving end of a good spanking, my arse craves to be spanked.
I really enjoyed having the Wham Bam used on me. Like I said, what I loved most about it is the length. The surface area is longer than the other Tantus paddles that I have. This enabled my partner to be able to ‘punish’ both arse cheeks at the same time. While I did love this aspect, it’s also a be a bit of a draw back. Whenever the OH smacks my arse, I remind him that I have two cheeks and it’s rather rude to leave one of them out. He huffs and puffs about this, and then I get what I want, another smack. I won’t be able to get away with this kind of teasing dialogue, using this paddle *Sigh* So, there’s that. However, this paddle does sting, so maybe one decent smack will be enough.
Who am I kidding? One will never be enough.
I found that I really liked the sting received from this paddle, but it managed to leave me wanting. Of the three Tantus paddles that I own, I expected this one to bring about the most pain. I was shocked to discover that wasn’t the case. While the Wham Bam does sting my arse something fierce and leaves it a beautiful shade of red, it doesn’t seem to go under the surface and give me the deeper stinging sensation that the Pelt paddle delivers on a regular basis. I can only put this down to it not being as chunky as the Pelt.
Although the Wham Bam didn’t bring me as much stinging sensation as the Pelt paddle does, it feels bloody fantastic and it sounds amazing. This paddle really gives you a loud smacking sound, and that sound can be heard through the walls; so if discretion is needed you might want to try something else. But, if sound isn’t an issue to you (it seriously sounds glorious), then I’d highly recommend giving this a try. As with all the Tantus Paddles, I wouldn’t really recommend them for a beginner as they can be quite brutal, but I do feel (judging from the ones I own) that the Wham Bam would be the one to start out with, due to it being a lot tamer than the others.
