Use

Snap Strap from Tantus is a silicone paddle that's designed to take your play time to whole new levels!

This isn't your fluffy, soft, beginner's paddle; this paddle can deliver thuddy whacks that are sure to excite even the heavy players! Great for any type of relationship, no matter what gender you are; this can easily fit into anyone's BDSM collection. Whether you're in a Dom/Sub relationship or just enjoy a good spanking, this paddle delivers!

This paddle is a little on the long side and works best when used near your partner, but is more difficult to deliver a heavy whack when you're too close. Slap your partner's butt, breasts, back, genitals, thighs; anywhere you normally would give a good smack. Just make sure that your partner has given you consent since this paddle can cause some discomfort to someone who isn't wanting or doesn't care for that type of play.

Since this paddle is made out of silicone, there's no concern about getting bodily fluids on the it. It's easy to clean and can even be brought into the shower with you for a totally new experience. Adding a small amount of water-based lubricant or getting the paddle a little bit wet will also cause the the slaps to have a little more sting to them. This can be a real positive for someone who's more advanced in this type of play, but might feel like a little too much for someone just beginning.

Meant to be used by a couple or in a group setting, this item is a little more difficult to use if you're on your own. Even those who enjoy 'self discipline' or 'self spanking' may not be able to manipulate this paddle to suit their needs. This also isn't the most attractive piece to use if you're looking for a prop for a boudoir shot or to bring along with you to a play party.

Though this paddle is a little on the long side, it's still easy to store and travel with. The slender design makes it easily fit into most backpacks, suitcases, and is flexible enough that it can be bent to fit into purses and other smaller areas. The nearly flat paddle also works fine for dorm life/roommate situations since it doesn't take up much space laying inside a dresser drawer underneath clothes or in similar areas. It's simple to hide, which makes it a great choice.

Design / Craftsmanship / Size / Material / Features

This paddle is made entirely out of silicone. Silicone is rated a 10/10 on the Eden Material Safety Scale for being made from food-grade material, for being hypo-allergenic, latex free, non-porous, and phthalates free.

The surface of the paddle is very smooth, is black, and has a matte finish to it. It's not sticky or tacky and glides easily over the skin. Though it's very smooth, it does pick up a fair amount of lint and dust, but is easily removed with your hands or a wipe.


The business end of the paddle is in the shape of a long, rounded rectangle and the handle starts off thinner and ends in a rounded tip. The entire paddle is one solid piece, the handle isn't separate from the rest of it. Since it's thicker than the rest of the paddle, it feels nice and solid in your hands and during use. Unlike some other paddles, this one doesn't stick straight out. When you hold it by the handle, the top part of it droops down and is very limp. It easily flops around, but can be controlled when you go to use it. The material isn't stretchy in any way, but can easily be manipulated when you try.



On top of the handle has the only real marking on the piece. It says 'Tantus' in raised letters toward the top of the handle and at the base is a small hole. The hole has a thin cord running through it when it first arrives. It's large enough that it could be hung on a hook, but not wide enough to put around even a thin wrist. Should you wish to have a longer cord that would go around your wrist, it would be easy to remove the one that's there and replace it with another one. Aside from those areas, there is a seam that goes around the entire perimeter of the paddle. You can only slightly feel the seams, but they don't stand out when you're using it and it isn't a problem.




The material feels really high quality and should last a lifetime if properly taken care of. Even with heavy use, it doesn't seem as though it will cause any type of wear. Unless something punctures the material or it's exposed to a similar material or any lubricant other than water-based, there's really nothing to worry about.

The toy is a decent weight for this type of play. It's weighted enough that it feels good in your hands without ever feeling heavy. I would imagine after continuous whacking it could start to feel a little heavy, but it's going to depend on how long you're using it for.

The length of the toy makes it difficult to use when you're engaging in intercourse since it's so long, but is a great item to use if your partner is tied up on the bed and you're standing over them.


When first removed from the plastic, to my surprise there was a little bit of a funny smell to it. It almost reminds me of a rubbery scent even with the material type.

Performance

Snap Strap Paddle works really well for its designed purpose. It's not the best choice for a beginner since it can deliver some pretty powerful blows, but for a loving, adventurous couple it should work okay.

My husband and I aren't into heavy BDSM, but we like little things here and there. I enjoy the feel of a good smack every now and then, and this paddle works really well! You can control the power behind the slap by the force in which it's delivered. The heavier the hand, the harder the slap. Some marks do show up depending on how hard the hit was, but they don't stick around and should fade away within an hour or so depending on the force behind them. Either way, unless the slaps are extremely hard, it won't leave a mark on you that will show up the next day.

The slaps can easily be heard through a closed door unless you're being extremely gentle; which pretty much defeats the purpose. Because of the sound level, it's best to use this toy when roommates are out of the house unless you want them to know what you're doing.

My biggest complaint is that it's harder to manipulate during intercourse and when you and your partner are close together. The whole paddle is too limp and you can't get a good enough impact that way either.

Care and Maintenance

Since this paddle is made entirely of silicone, it's very easy to clean and sterilize your item. For regular clean up, washing with antibacterial soap and warm water or using your favorite sex toy cleaner are the best options. For a much deeper clean, this toy can be boiled for up to three minutes, or put on the top rack of your dishwasher.

If you're planning on using this toy on an area that might have lubricant on it, always make sure that the lube you've used is water-based. The surface of the paddle could become damaged and take away from the quality of the piece if it comes in contact with any other lubricant type.

Likewise, this toy shouldn't be stored near any toys that are made of a similar material. This toy doesn't come with a storage pouch, but can be bent and put inside a plastic gallon sized Ziplock if you need to store it in an area where there are other toys of concern. Since this paddle is so nice and flat, it does work well to lay it in the bottom of a drawer underneath some clothing if you're looking for a hidden way of storing the toy.

Packaging

This Snap Strap Paddle comes in a thin, clear plastic bag. There's no information included on the outside of the bag and it can be easily torn off and recycled since there's no reason to keep it.


The only information included with the paddle is on the tag that's attached with a clear cord to the bottom of the handle. It has a frosted, clear tag that seems like it's made out of a rubber or silicone and it simply says 'Tantus' on the bottom. This tag lays over a white tag that gives the only information there is to know about the paddle.
Follow-up commentary
I still love how high quality and unique this paddle is, but unfortunately, it doesn't really fit into our play very well. It's not difficult to create quite a smack with it, and doesn't take much to accidentally take it a little too far with a partner who doesn't love pain.
