This is a great toy for an entry level beginner, but if you're looking for something that will truly "leave a mark" then you may want to keep up your search.

Use

The Blush XOXO Paddle is a spanking tool, meant as an entry toy for BDSM play. This one is definitely geared towards beginners, and those who are looking for an occasional foray into spanking, flogging and sensation play. It's perfect for those who are nervous about trying BDSM or who are trying to get their toes wet without falling into the water.

Design / Craftsmanship / Size / Material / Features

Made of faux leather, this is one paddle that PETA won't flog YOU for having. There's another material used that I suspect as being vinyl or even plastic, but that's not listed in the description or on any of the info provided by Sportsheets (it's the black under the pink, which gives the XOXO its colour). It's vegan approved and phthalates free, so it's definitely safe for bodies. The manufacturing and craftsmanship is okay, but could definitely use some improvement. The stitches all look clean (and the black on pink is a nice look) but the letters aren't all glued together properly, so the v of each X is flapping free. In line with that, the spaces between letters aren't glued together, so they can be moved and pulled. The faux leather is nice, and feels like pleather, rather than a better imitation of real leather. The handle is very lightly padded so it's comfortable to hold.

It also feels like there's a plastic rod running from the handle all the way to the end of the paddle, providing stability. It can be bent, so it won't crack with pressure, but I wouldn't try to fold it in two.

Performance

I came into this toy with open expectations, and what I got was a little disappointing for that. I literally could NOT make this toy hurt with any intensity; the most it provided was a sting that lasted two or three seconds. Even more disappointing (and perhaps for the same reason) I was unable to get the XOXO impression to show up on skin. However, for use on sensitive skin (breasts, testicles, etc.) this is the perfect flogger, since you won't ever go TOO far with it, so it's not a lost cause.

Care and Maintenance

The faux leather of this toy means it's super easy to clean; a quick wipe with soap and water will get daily residue off with ease. Toy wipes or baby wipes are also perfect for a quick clean, and will work for all but the sternest stains. You shouldn't do any deep cleaning, nor should you submerse it in water, but the low price tag means that if you spill your soda on it, you won't be bereft at having to purchase a new one.

Packaging

This one doesn't come with any packaging, but does include a tag with the name of the paddle (Blush XOXO Paddle) and some info about the manufacturer.

This one is easy to store; since it's only 12.5" long you can stick it in a drawer with ease and forget about it. You can even put it in some knee high socks for extra protection against snoops!

    This would be a great piece for us since we would want to start with something not too painful. I really am not a fan of the way it looks though. tHanks so much for the review!

    Thanks for reading!

    Stkb, if the colour isn't a draw for you, this may not be your best bet. Maybe you'd be happier with the interchangeable crop system?

    Considering how many times I've fallen on my ass on skates, you probably could have made it hurt me.

    I know it's kinda random irrelevant, but my friend stores the paddle in her stockings, and it keeps the stockings stretched out. Anyways, great review. I would only get a paddle like this so I could get the marking.

    Huh. I don't wear stockings, so I never would've thought of that one. I'll have to think about that as an option for future paddle/flogger storage!
