Riding crop by Spartacus - review by Carrie Ann

Giddy-up

Spartacus makes a good quality, nicely priced basic BDSM basic. The wide tipped crop is delightfully slappy and easy for even the beginner to use while still providing enjoyment for the experienced.

Affordable, well constructed, nice wide keeper, flexible shaft.

Back when I was a single submissive, I decided it was high time I started buying my own toys. I was tired of having to depend upon others to have my favorites, tired of sharing, tired of not providing anything toward my own kinky pleasures.

So I started buying stuff to stock my own small toy bag; a gag, a crop, some cuffs and a paddle, clamps, a cane and a flogger I liked. The basics, you know?

I bought a lot of it from Spartacus because their stuff was affordable and good quality.

This crop is no exception. Another affordable, well constructed, quality piece from a dependable company.

The crop itself is 21 inches long with a braided body, a silver tipped handle and a wide rubber tip. I liked the wider tip because it makes it easier for even the unskilled to hit where they are aiming.

I do NOT like to be hit with the whippy, often cane-like shaft of a crop. I want to be hit with the leather or rubber keeper that you're *supposed* to be hit with. This one is wide enough that it's fairly easy to do; around 2 - 2.5 inches wide as opposed to the tiny half inch keeper on some crops. The wide surface area of the keeper makes a nice slapping sound when it contacts flesh and feels both slappy and stingy.

I particularly enjoyed this crop for the slapping of tender regions; breasts, vulva, nipples. Because it's rubber, however, I would suggest not sharing if you're going to get bodily fluids on it. Rubber is porous and can be wiped down with soap and water but can't be sterilized.

The crop is flexible yet firm and very well constructed. Mine lasted right up until Taylor decided to take it apart and use the handle for something else. But that is another story...
Follow-up commentary
I've wanted to write a follow up on this for a good, long time. It haunts me, sitting there, undone, in my list.

But, alas, Taylor modified the toy and... um... I really can't follow up on the original.

It was good while it lasted, though

    Great review, very good description of the feel and sensation.

    But...Ok, spit it out sister - I am distracted by wondering what Taylor did with the handle! And I noticed something only your dear editrix would pay mind to, you wrote "you know" instead of "yanno"...hmm, is this really Carrie Ann? Winking

    He attempted to attach it to a broken fishing rod that he liked to whack me with.

    Thankfully, the whole mess broke. *nod*

    Cuz... yanno... fishing rods suck. Tongue out

    I actually got in to the habit of typing how I'd talk in a bar with buddies because of my blog. People felt closer to it, to me, when I dumbed down a little and talked super casually. When I would type everything out absolutely properly, without the silly words and oddly structured sentences, I came across as stiff and snobby.

    I never even thought about NOT doing it in my reviews, I've been doing it so long.

    Oy.

    Where has my education gone!

    I totally don't see you as a sub! Are you more of a switch or dom now?
  • Carrie Ann
    Nope, Lauren, I live a 24/7 Owner/property dynamic and have for 8 years. I'm submissive in my relationship, however, not to the world. Smile

    OH my, I never thought of you as a sub. It's cool to know you are. I am too, but more slave to my Master. Keep up the great work.
