Classic Leather Tawse for SH!

The Classic Leather Tawse is my first delivery from Sh! Womenstore, so it was a lovely surprise to find, within the plain jiffybag, a beautifully wrapped package.  Well, this is what Mistress has said anyway; I just wanted to see the Tawse!

 

Within our beautifully wrapped package was the red version, in all its resplendent leather and suede and shiny stainless steelness.

A tawse is the name given to a split paddle, most commonly seen to split away like a viper’s tongue; this Classic Leather Tawse is actually rather cunning in deSH women store tawse (5)sign.  You see, to the casual glance, it looks exactly like a paddle, but upon closer inspection you notice that the paddle surface is split into 4 strands, doubled in thickness.  These strands are a stiff leather on the outside and a luxuriant suede on the inside.

 

I wrote recently about how I like sensory play; and the Classic Leather Tawse is right up my street; from the second you open the packaging, that real leather smell teases, excites the senses – it is plainly clear that this is an extremely well made piece of impactwear; and backed up by the SH! 1 Year Guarantee.

The impact surface is nicely hand sized, on holding it out it droops slightly, showing off both the weight of the leather and the potential momentum which can be built up during a swing.  The handle is flat and wide, and a decent shape for getting a good grip, although it does favour a slightly larger hand, the wrist strap is simple but adequate.

Due to its size, this is a close impact toy; making it ideal for an over-the-knee spanking, or some spanking action during intercourse; or of course whatever other scenario you have planned.

 

So what of those impacts?

They’re pretty loud, but then this is a broad paddle; not only is it a broad paddle, it’s a double layer, so you get leather hitting skin, and then leather hitting leather, so yeah, the noise is relatively noticeable.  So if you are after an impact toy that delivers auditory sensations too – the Classic Leather Tawse is ideal for you.

Noise score: 9

 

The tingle you get from the impact is immediate, reasonably intense and, as it covers a broad area, quite long lasting.  The harder the stroke, the more pronounced these effects.  It had my skin responding with goosebumps immediately, and it was great fun to watch them come up after just one (relatively firm) strike.

Tingle score: 8

The pain from the tawse is immediately intense, but very soon dies down, I found it was also possible to withstand many consecutive strikes without feeling too much pain; broad paddles spread the energy over a wider area, so to be expected really.

Pain score: 4

 

The tawse was really effective at leaving my skin red, although the tenderness soon abated, and there was no long-lasting effect, I was really pleased with the short-term colouration that matched the tawse itself.

Redness score: 6

The Classic Leather Tawse is comfortable for my regulation man-hands, but Mistress found the handle slightly too broad for lengthy use; but this just serves to encourage her to chop and change the impact implement she is using, so it’s all good.

Comfort score: 5
