About spanking devices

Flagellation and spanking are the main BDSM constituents; they have vast range of action - starting from light stroking with flogger and up to bashing with whip or punishment. BDSM, as SM, is not limited by spanking alone, there many other actions. But, it is hard to imagine BDSM relationships without specific fetish armory of spanking tools. Such devices are different not only in appearance, but in the type of action, they can be of three types - hard, flexible and manoeuvrable. Hard devices are made preferably from wood, plastic and stiff leather. These devices include paddles, spanking rackets and others. They are designed for rough and short-term impact on large body areas, mainly on glutes. Manoeuvrable devices include spanking gear manufactured mostly from natural soft leather, equipped with hard handle with moving soft tail. More ofter they are floggers, stacks, various whips and rods. Such devices are designed for long soft impacts on practically all areas. Flexible spanking tools are elastic bodies which always come back to original position. They are predominantly crops, rods or stacks. They are made both from natural and synthetic materials, often fitted with handle. These devises are designed for sharp actions of various intensity. Regardless of their purpose, all devices interacting with human body have to comply with appropriate requirements of quality, reliability and safety. Primarily, when choosing a device, you should pay attention to its comfort. If a device is fitted with handle, it should not be smooth to avoid its slipping out of arms and injuring a partner, a stopper is desired. The handle diameter has to be convenient to wrap it entirely. It should be noted that non uniform cores and irregular braid may compromise quality. Spanking device has to be soft and well band in any direction. Reliability of a device may be tested by grasping its handle and make a circle around its axis, if the tail drops smoothly and vertically and the angle does not change, that means you`ve chosen safe and reliable tool. Second key aspect is the efficacy of a spanking device. For deep action it is important that a device is heavy enough but not so as to injure internals. The third feature that should be mentioned is the surface of device. Textured and stiff leather with rough surface or rigid knots may leave marks on a partner`s body even at small amplitudes and force of impact. Deep action on subcutaneous tissues and muscles without leaving marks requires definite experience and skills. For the finale we wish to inform you on the safety from medical point of view and specify areas suitable for flagellation under proper approach and correctly selected device: Areas of safe impact are buttocks and upper of the back, the widest and thickest muscles, which protect human organs and bones from hits and injuries. Areas of selective impact. Such areas also have thick layer of muscles, but subcutaneous layer is pretty loose, so impacts with hard devices are inadmissible. Impacts with flexible tool must be effected with great care only by experienced experts. Areas of dangerous impact are loins, waist, belly; there are vital organs in these areas which are poorly protected by muscles and bones. It is better to completely refrain from experiments with these areas. But slide impacts with soft devices are admissible. Areas of sexual targeted impacts are crotch and breasts. Due to extra sensibility and poor protection of these areas it is recommended to use only maneuverable soft devices. Areas of critical impact are zones and points, strong impact on which may lead to irreparable consequences up to need of emergency medical aid. There are no compromises, any impact of any force with any devices must be eliminated. Such areas include internal surface of elbows and knees, thigh area near crotch, internal sides of forearms and armpits, areas of collarbone, neck and head.
