Not Quite Riding Off Into The Sunset..

This riding crop is an affordable option for a beginner testing the waters of light BDSM and makes a great photo prop. It's vegan friendly and pretty easy to care for. The compact size makes it easy to hide and can be taken with you on the go. Heavy players will find this to be a comical piece since it's not durable enough to last though even one session. Great entry level piece, but you'll need to upgrade to something higher quality for more advanced play.

Use

Sex and Mischief Riding Crop is a beginner's BDSM item designed to give your partner a little whack when they need it most. This is a great item for light play and is a non-intimidating piece to introduce this type of play to your partner.

Best used with a partner, this toy provides a light smack and can be paired with a set of cuffs and a blindfold to turn your playtime into sensory overload. This crop can be used on any area of the body and can be used by any gender. The black color of the piece doesn't make it gender specific and should match a lot of other BDSM gear. Whether you're using this to 'punish' your partner, are engaging in some type of fetish play, or are simply using it as a sensory piece, this crop is sure to get the job done.

The length is awesome since it requires you to be fairly close to your partner when you're using it on them. If they're blindfolded and you're trying to be stealthy about where the whack will be delivered, there's enough length that you can stand next to the bed, or a short distance away from them (wherever they are) and they wouldn't be able to sense where the crop would connect with them next. On top of that, it's also short enough that you could use it on your partner during intercourse. The length is truly great, no matter how you're using it.

Solo use is a little more limited with a piece like this. You certainly could use it on yourself in a similar manner, but not everyone enjoys that type of play. This piece is super sexy when taken along to a play party and is the perfect accessory for a boudoir photo shoot.

Do keep in mind that this is for beginners and those who prefer lighter forms of BDSM. Heavy players would probably break this crop in the first use because it's simply not durable enough to withstand the abuse an advanced player would put on it. This is best left to the light players, used as an accessory, or as a part of your decor.

Design / Craftsmanship / Size / Material / Features

The crop is made of three material types; ABS plastic for the stick, Poly Vinyl Chloride and Polyester; making it a vegan friendly toy since it contains no leather.

The design of the crop is very basic but works well for its designed purpose. The top of the crop is the end that connects with your partner's body. It's a very thick piece of fabric that's folded over and stitched around the bottom. The way it's stitched creates a loop at the top and though it isn't floppy, does have some movement to it. It then narrows and is stitched on either side of the plastic piece and also has a tag that says 'S&M' on it. The plastic is only slightly flexible and has a little handle on the bottom that is only a little wider than the plastic and is fitted to the piece. It's not glued down or anything like that and can be pulled off pretty easily. There's no wrist strap on this toy and no way of hanging it up. It's a simple handle for a simple product.




There's no specific texture to the piece, though the top sort of resembles leather in appearance and feel. The handle is shiny and has a rubbery feeling to it while the plastic area isn't as shiny, but is totally smooth. All parts of the piece are black other than the stitching on the tag which is done in silver.

The quality isn't great on this piece. The stitching isn't even and the fabric for the top isn't lined up very well. There are also a few loose threads which is sad considering how there isn't much stitching on the piece. For the price, the less than perfect quality isn't surprising and was actually expected, but it's still a little annoying. The threads don't seem like they would come loose, but the crop should not be used by heavy players unless the point is to break it during use. If anything were to happen to the crop, I would imagine the plastic area would snap, but that should only happen if being used for heavy play. Though the quality isn't great, this should last a long time as long as you're not going crazy with it. With proper care and use, there's no reason to expect this crop to break on you.


The crop is quite compact considering what it is. This item is small enough that it can easily fit inside a suitcase, backpack, briefcase, or even larger purses without taking up much room. The total length of the crop is 12 1/4"; 5 1/4" for the entire crop top, 3 1/2" for the handle, and 3 1/2" makes up the exposed plastic area. The widest area is at the top where the crop would connect with the skin. It's 2" wide and the stitching is about 2 1/2" from the end. It's very slim and would tuck easily between folded clothes without anyone even noticing.


Should someone see this item, it would be hard to pass it off as anything other than a sexual product, especially with a tag that says 'S&M' on it (which you could cut off if you so desired). It isn't high quality enough that someone would assume it's a real crop and would be even more obvious if you don't have any animals. Fortunately because it's such a compact size, it's easy to tuck into a dresser or nightstand drawer; out of sight from others.

There was no smell to the toy when it first arrived, which is always appreciated.

Performance

This crop can get the point across depending on how much force you put behind it, but won't ever cause actual pain. There's a beautiful sounding 'WHACK' followed by a light sting that lasts for only a couple of seconds, even when using a heavy hand. A light pink mark might show up, but it's very faint and won't last longer than a few minutes.

The way this crop preforms just goes to show how great this is for a beginner. It delivers the awesome sound that can be heard even through closed doors, without having to worry about inflicting pain. It's easy to use, looks attractive, and is a great item to start out with.
    • Good for teasing
    • Stingy

Care and Maintenance

Cleaning this crop is fairly simple. You want to try to avoid getting liquids on it if possible and never put it under running water. If lube or bodily fluids happen to come in contact with the crop, you can spot wash it with soap and water on a washcloth or by using a wipe. The handle can easily be wiped without any concern because of the materials it's made from.

Storing the toy is simple since it's slim and compact. It should fit into most toy boxes, nightstands, etc. without taking up much room. It could even fit in your underwear or sock drawer without anyone knowing about it.
    • Easy to store

Packaging

This crop doesn't come in a box or bag, it simply comes attached to a piece of cardboard. There are four very small holes in the cardboard piece and the crop is attached using small plastic tags. The cardboard is very minimal, but nothing about the way this toy was packaged is discreet. The crop itself is in full view, it says 'Sex & Mischief' on the top and 'Riding Crop' on the bottom. The background looks like a wrinkled gray sheet. The back of the cardboard gives you a very brief idea of what this can be used for and includes three 'sexy games'. However, it seems like they put the wrong game ideas on the back of this because it keeps mentioning the 'Whip & Tickle' and doesn't say anything about the riding crop. The bottom of the back tells you the materials and gives the company information. Nothing about this piece of cardboard is important to keep, you can recycle it as you would other cardboard items.




This would make a cute addition to an intimate gift basket. There are tons of other S&M gear from Sportsheets that are designed for beginners as well. Give it to your lover, as a bridal gift, or to a good friend, but avoid giving it to someone who's easily embarrassed.

Experience

This crop was about as high quality as I was expecting considering the price point, but it's not a horrible piece. I really like the fact that my husband and I can be really close to each other and not have the length of the crop be awkward to use. I love the sound that it delivers, but was hoping it would give a little more of a sting than it does. My husband doesn't like being whacked, and is always nervous about hurting me, so this was an okay compromise.

For a beginner, this is a really great, affordable item to try out, but for someone who's had a little experience with impact play, this will do you absolutely no good.

    Awesome pictures, and wonderful inspection of the build quality! Great review all around, but I don't think the length of this would work for me at all!
