The Lovehoney Tease Me Paddle* is a lightweight, easy to use satin and leather paddle for spanking and impact play. The paddle is a foot long with a 6” rectangular spanking portion and a leather wrist/storage strap.
The purple satin side of the paddle is soft and has some sort of padding underneath it, and it works well for stroking and sensitizing the area to be spanked, and when used for impact, it provides a mild thuddy feel and doesn’t leave marks. If you’re new to impact play or don’t like pain, this side is most likely ideal for you.
While the satin side is perfect for light sensation play, don’t let it fool you into thinking this paddle is only for soft-core spankings. If you prefer a harsher, stinging feel, all you have to do is flip it over to find the paddle’s more sadistic side. I was surprised by how much it hurt, considering it looks like a pretty tame beginner paddle, and had to have Jake hit lightly with it at first. Unlike the satin side, the leather side can leave redness, though in my experience it doesn’t last long.
My favorite ways to use this paddle are for over the lap spankings or breast impact play, and I enjoy the contrast of feeling alternating mild thuds from the satin side and the stinging from the leather side. For the spanker, the paddle is lightweight, springy, and easy to hold.
Though the paddle is versatile and easy to use, it does have a few issues. It began unraveling around the seam after only one use, not to the point that it seems like it will come apart, but it’s noticeable. Also,the satin and leather sides don’t match up perfectly, and the satin side stains easily with lube or bodily fluids, and it can’t be sterilized. The only way I know of to clean it is to wipe it down with a damp cloth.
If you want a versatile, easy to use paddle for light thuddy or stinging spanking play, (or both) then I recommend trying the Tease Me Paddle. Since I only have one other paddle, I don’t have much to compare it to, but I’ve enjoyed using it and like it more than my other (which is very mild.)
If you’re looking for a stronger thud, a paddle that will last a lifetime, something for heavy impact play, or a toy you can sterilize, then this probably isn’t the paddle for you, and I suggest checking out some other options. The next paddles I want to try out soon are the new Tantus silicone paddles, which I’ve heard a lot of good things about and can be completely sterilized. (Update: I got one!)
