Use

The Passionate Paddle by Eden Toys is used for exactly what the name implies. Paddle your partner into submission, whether for a punishing or rewarding experience. This paddle is great for those wanting to get into heavier BDSM play, and can be used by beginners or more advanced users for spanking their partners. Whether you're in the bedroom or at a play party, this toy is easy to take with you as it is very travel friendly. While it's clear what the paddle is used for, it can easily fit into your luggage flat if you're not easily embarrassed should TSA check your bags.

The paddle can be used for impact play on the breasts, buttocks or thighs, and is just slim enough to be used on the genitals if you'd like.

Design / Craftsmanship / Size / Material / Features

The design of the paddle is like any other paddle. The paddle end is rectangular in shape, which tapers into a thinner rectangular shape that forms the handle, rounding off at the other end. There is a hole at the end of the handle which the wrist strap is looped through. This wrist strap is large enough to fit most hand sizes through, and can also be used to hang the paddle when not in use. The paddle itself is lightweight, and overall the design of it is well-constructed.



The paddle is constructed from two pieces of polyurethane and vinyl sewn together, and has a slight chemical scent when first removed from the packaging, but there is no taste (I tested this). This scent quickly dissipates, and is not overly annoying to the senses. The feel of the material is smooth to the touch, but you can feel the raised geometric shapes of the decoration on the red side of the paddle. The paddle is sturdy and it does not bend without a fair amount of pressure being applied to it. This is a great vegan option for users who are looking for a cruelty-free option for their BDSM practices.



The paddle measures 12-1/2" long overall, and 2-1/2" in width on the paddle portion. The portion which provides impact is 6" long in total. This paddle will last a long time if properly cared for, and should not be left out in direct sunlight as it could cause the materials to crack.

Performance

The toy performs well, and it feels sturdy and secure when you have the wrist strap around your wrist. It holds up with use and hard paddling, and does not bend much, even with harder whacks to the skin. The sensation of each blow is stingy, and leaves a cool stinging on the skin even after a few minutes of stopping. If the paddle is used with a heavy hand, the paddle could create lasting marks and bruises. Paddle to the desired effect and then stop.

The wrist strap helps immensely when using the paddle and keeps it from slipping out of the hand if you happen to get lube or other fluid on your hands while paddling your partner. Always use safe words in the bedroom or at a play party and always play with a partner you know you can trust. Never paddle someone in sensitive areas, such as around the spinal column, on inflamed skin, around the kidneys or on the butt when a harder toy is inserted, as this could damage tissues.

Care and Maintenance

The paddle shouldn't come into contact with any fluids when used, but in the circumstance that it does, it can easily be wiped clean with a damp cloth. Users should consider this item fluid bound if this occurs, as the material the paddle is made from is porous. It can be wiped down after every use and should allowed to be air-dried out of direct sunlight. Storing it is simple as it has a wrist strap, and it can be hung in a closet or laid flat in a drawer after play. Do not place the paddle in an area where it will be bent or pressure will be applied on it.

Do not leave the paddle in direct sunlight as this can ruin the faux-leather. With proper care and storage, this toy should last for many years to come.

Packaging

All items are discreetly shipped to you and there aren't any worries of the packaging stating what is inside of the box. The items are shipped in a plain, brown cardboard box and the shipper's name is also discreet and does not say "Edenfantasys" anywhere. Inside of the box, the toy packaging is nestled under air pillows to prevent it from shifting around during transit. A packing slip is also included, in case the user has any issues with their order. The cardboard box was in perfect condition when it arrived on the doorstep, but it will vary between orders and mail carriers, as mine always has.



Underneath the air pillows, the toy's packaging sat. The paddle comes packaged inside of a minimal cardboard box that has the same design on both sides. It features the paddle's top geometric design on the box and says "Luxury Fetish" in large lettering. Underneath the "Luxury Fetish" title, it states passionate paddle and beneath that has the company logo. All packaging is minimal and can be recycled if the user would like. If gifting the toy, the paddle's box can be wrapped easily with wrapping paper, or you can slip it into a nice gift bag.
    • Good for storage
