Gateway kink for vanillas!

Advanced players will feel a bit underwhelmed by this toy- it's soft and pretty, but it's not very intense for tickling or sensation play. Beginners may enjoy it more as a non-threatening way of exploring new types of play in the bedroom.

Pros:

Not intense enough to excite me

Don't get me wrong, there's nothing wrong with being vanilla, it takes all kinds. But there is a certain category of toy that is marketed as kind of non-threateningly kinky for curious vanilla folks that I just find a little, well, boring. I am a very sensual person, but I also like intensity, and this toy didn't deliver much in that regard.

I play with a submissive who enjoys being restrained and tickled. I hadn't played with feathers much in the past, so I purchased this, curious to try. Surprisingly, this toy isn't actually that intensely tickle-inducing. It is soft, and feels nice, but it's not something that elicited enough of a reaction from my bottom to get pulled out of the toy bag a second time. My fingers work a lot better in that regard.

There are definitely situations where I can see this useful- during a long, teasing, sensual massage, or for sensory play while warming somewhat up for impact play (alternating hard and soft strokes). But even then, I think a fur lined paddle might be handier for that.

It might make a cute accessory for a French Maid costume? For what it's worth, it is pretty and nicely designed. The long handle offers a convenient reach, and the feathers are very soft, glossy and good quality (not sure what bird they come from, or how the bird would feel about its feathers being re-purposed as a kinky toy!) It comes in a nice variety of colors and is inexpensive enough to be worth trying if it appeals to you. I will probably pull it out on occasion, but usually I find myself wanting something a bit more potent.

This isn't a bad toy, but it's just not a great toy for me. I need a stronger sensation for sensory play and teasing. So I would say this is fine for vanilla folks who want to "spice things up" but aren't quite ready for the rabbit skin flogger.
Follow-up commentary
Honestly, this thing pretty much never leaves my toy box. It just doesn't do enough for me. Maybe I'll give it to one of my friends who has a cat?

    Yeah I hope that the feathers were taken in ethical ways, but then again I ate turkey for dinner last night, so...
