Prickly Pinwheel

This is a very fun toy to use if you never have. I recommend that people try it. This model is very sturdy, easy to clean, and for $12.99 is an amazing deal. The packaging is nearly non-existent, but that is a small drawback to such a fun toy.

Use

Prior to this, I had never used a Wartenburg pinwheel. I had heard it recommended by a few friends of mine and when I saw it here for only $12.99, I had to try it.

This toy is used by rolling the spiked pinwheel over various parts of the body for stimulation. The Wartenburg Pinwheel was not designed as a sexual toy; it was originally made by Dr. Robert Wartenburg as a tool to test nerve sensitivity. I do not believe that it is still used in the medical practice at all, but it is definitely used in medical fetish play.

Design / Craftsmanship / Material / Size / Fit

This pinwheel is made entirely of metal and has a bit of weight to it. The pinwheel itself is about 1.25" in diameter and has a total length of 7". The wheel is held in place by a single central screw and does not seem to be able to tighten as much as I would like it to unfortunately. However, having the wheel loose like it is allows for a much lighter touch of the toy.
    • Well made / sturdy

Performance

I have been told that this can draw blood, but I have yet to be able to with it. This toy is safe for use on nearly anywhere on the body and can be used for everywhere between light tickling or heavier play. I am very pleased with how this has worked for me. It is amazing for tickling torture, medical play, and many other situations.
    • Holds up to use well

Care and Maintenance

Maintenance of this is very easy. All you need to do to keep it clean is to wash it with simple antibacterial soap and water. The cleaning is a good precaution to take seeing as this can possibly draw a slight bit of blood (although that is not common).
    • Easy to clean

Packaging

The packaging of this is a joke. It comes in a single small ziploc-like bag with no documentation or labels. Although it does not require any sort of manual on how to use it, I was expecting some documentation. When I got the pinwheel in the mail, it had actually already poked quite a few holes in the bag.

    Thanks for the review! I was hoping for a few more examples of how it is used. Very curious device for someone like me that has never tried medical play.

    Good review. Wartenberg Pinwheels are still used as medical devices. When my husband sees his podiatrist, she checks for nerve sensation in his feet using a Wartenberg Pinwheel, because he is diabetic (which can affect nerves).

    It can and does pierce the skin- I have been in many scenes where domme's have used this instrument for blood play.

    It is also still used in medicine.

    In terms of feeling it is mostly a tickling feeling. It is not very sharp; it can break skin, but it will not happen unless you are using quite a bit of force.

    Also, I thank all of you for the input on not only this review, but other info about the pinwheel as well!
