Use

Ever went for a neurological exam in the 1900's? Wonder what your nerve reactions are like? Your pizza cutter just died?

The Fetish Fantasy Series Wartenberg Wheel by Pipedream is there for you! More suited for beginners than for advanced users, this pizza cutter... *cough* Wartenberg pinwheel is perfect for light, sensory, play. With blunt and short pins, drawing blood will almost be impossible with this device, unless you press really, really hard.

So, turn off the light, light up some candles, use the provided mask or some restraints, have a bowl of ice cubes ready and enjoy yourself. The metal wheel will retain cold or hot temperatures, perfect for temperature play.

This product can be packed in a suitcase easily, but I wouldn't risk bringing it in the plane: they could see it as a weapon.

Design / Craftsmanship / Material / Size / Fit

The pinwheel: Since this is made of an unknown metal, I would advise people with metal sensitivities to pass on this one: since it has a mobile piece, it would be harder to coat the whole metal part with clear nail polish. It if helps, magnets stick to the metal, indicating the possibility it might contain iron, cobalt or nickel. The metal doesn't taste or smell like iron, however. The handle is made of regular plastic.

The design of this toy in itself is a bit odd. The wheel itself is one flat piece of metal shaped almost like a sun, with short blunt pins. It is attached to the metal body of the thing with something that resembles a stud. The piece is large enough to allow movement, but a bit too large in the sense that it makes metallic noises when in use. The metal body in itself is weird: it is a spoon-like extension of the handle. I have no idea why they chose to put a cavity in the metal body, and I honestly think it looks ugly.

The handle is red plastic: rounded, soft, with no seam line but a very small one at the very top, it could even be used for a bit of insertion teasing.

Beginners will like the fact that is is almost impossible to hurt someone with this thing. Advanced users will probably prefer a meaner version of this toy, with pointier pins.

The provided mask: The mask is, in fact, pretty cheap. Made from an unknown type of black synthetic fabric which reminds me of a windbreaker jacket and a small elastic. I had more luck with this one than with the mask provided with the Breathable ball gag I reviewed earlier. It did not break yet, but it's very tight around my husband's head and even on mine, and I have a very small head. However, you cannot see the light through this mask, and even if it smells a little bit like petrochemicals, I'd probably use it.

Performance

This product really pleased me as a first Wartenberg pinwheel. Its blunt pins allow clumsy hands to feel more secure: I don't think accidental blood play is common with this product. My husband being very accident-prone, I am thankful for that. I do like blood play, but I would prefer for it to be planned, since my husband has a bit of a blood phobia.

The sensations this toy offer are very light, like insect legs running all over your skin.

The only point that I disliked: the wheel is a bit noisy when ran across the skin.

Care and Maintenance

To avoid any rusting of the unknown metal, dry correctly before storing. Any kind of lube can be used with this toy, plastic and metal being pretty much compatible with any lube.

Do not use harsh chemicals like sodium hypochlorite to clean this toy. Not only is this useless, but bleach can etch certain metals. If *really* needed (read: I went REALLY too rough and got massive amounts of blood on my wheel), you could dip the metal end in boiling water and hold it so the plastic never touches the boiling water, but I would avoid that as well in case the plastic softens too much. The best solution would be simple toy cleaner, or antibacterial soap. You shouldn't be able to draw blood with this toy anyways.

The box it came it can very well be used for storage. If you find it to be a bit too bulky, just cut off or fold the flap on top of the box.

Packaging

The packaging is a white box made of stiff cardboard. It's around the size of a toothpaste box, with a flap on top to allow the suspension of the box in a shop. The box depicts the product being in use. There is also a life size picture of the product on the front of the box. The box contains no information about the toy aside from a little background history. Inside the box, both the mask and the wheel are wrapped in some kind of plastic bag.

    I didn't really understand the point of this when I saw, but now I do! Thanks I agree that its totally not an attractive toy... in fact it looks more like a tool or something.

    Good review. I considered this wheel, but I didn't think it would have enough "bite", so I opted for the Stockroom pinwheel. I guess medical professionals still use pinwheels, albeit disposable plastic ones. My husband is diabetic and sees a podiatrist. Since diabetes can harm nerves and cause numbness in the extremities, the podiatrist uses a pinwheel to check his feet for nerve sensation.
