You won't want these hugs and kisses.

The blush paddle won't make your "cheeks" blush. This is a very lightweight paddle that barely provides any stinging sensation, which a paddle of its shape should. It could be great as a prop to a costume but its performance as a paddle is mediocre at best.

Use

The blush paddle by Sportsheets is marketed as a paddle, therefore it is used to spank various fleshy parts of the body.

The blush is an especially lightweight paddle that might cater more to the beginner in BDSM due to its cute pink color and hugs and kisses pattern. Since it is lightweight it is less intimidating in terms of the intensity of the blows it can administer.

Perhaps some advanced users might enjoy this paddle simply for its looks, as it is very feminine and cute. It will probably not satisfy those who prefer moderate to high intensity in their spanking.

Design / Craftsmanship / Size / Material / Features

The design of the blush paddle is very similar to the design from the impressions paddle line. However there are quite a few differences.

The paddle is 12 1/2 inches long and 2 inches wide. It is made of faux leather material for both the back piece, which is completely black, and the front piece, which is a nice light shade of pink.

Between these two pieces of material there is a foam insert so as to make the paddle somewhat padded. Also there is a piece of shiny black patent leather behind the xoxo cut out. In the middle of the paddle going from one tip to the other is a flattened rod that is either made of plastic or wood. It moves very easily inside the paddle. The material is very smooth.

The paddle comes with a metal ring with a string attached to it to allow the owner of the product to hang it if they choose to.

The paddle is very flimsy and flexible.

Performance

In use the blush paddle administers very light sensation. It is much weaker than bare hand spanking.

This paddle is much too weak for any paddle play, even for beginners, except if the beginner is extremely intimidated by other paddles. If you are a beginner and you enjoy bare hand spanking, this will not be a gratifying toy as it is very light. It is sort of thuddy - it will not sting very much, even if more strength is used to wield it.

We tried to use it lightly to slowly bring my skin to a glowing pink and we never got there. The stick is quite annoying in use, it is very obviously felt. Perhaps this paddle provides a mild version of caning, however we have never tried caning before so we cannot compare.

Also, the xoxo impression does not come out all that well compared to the impressions paddles.

This paddle can be a cute decoration in a girly type of dungeon.

Care and Maintenance

Since it is not made of real leather, you can use water to wash it if you wish to do so. It probably isn't a good idea to submerge it under water as there is foam inside and if it gets wet mildew may develop inside, which is not very sanitary.

We have not gotten it dirty all that much but we wiped it down with a wet cloth that had a bit of sex toy cleaner on it.

Experience

I think the blush paddle is very cute but it is way too light and flimsy to do a decent job at paddling my butt and thighs.

Personally I think it would make a cute prop or accessory to a costume, something of the like. In practice this paddle is less than ideal. Perhaps Sportsheets wanted to create something for the beginner but I think even beginners start with bare hand spanking. Bare hand spanking is a lot more intense and gratifying than this paddle.

Unless you have never felt the sting of your partners hand on your butt and you are scared to death to try more intimidating paddles, do not order this. If you are looking for a cute prop to add to your girly dominatrix character, this is great but only as an accessory, not for use.

I give it two stars because it is marketed as a paddle. If it were marketed as a cute prop I would probably give it a higher rating.

    Nice review. It's a shame that someone might buy a paddle expecting to get something stronger than a hand.

    I guess I also see this as a decoration rather then a real tool. By the looks, I thought it would deliver more.
    Great review!
