Note – The photographs in this post are of paddles that are very similar to the one that I experienced but are not exactly the same as the actual paddle that was used on me
I do not own one of these paddles but have recently had the experience of being spanked with one at the hands of Meesteres Cela, who is a real challenge to play with and I would say a very well worth while opponent for the experienced but beginners beware. The paddle itself is a simple, shaped piece of varnished wood with a work boot style sole glued to one side.
During a very hard spanking session I was shown the paddle and asked which side I wanted to try. On one side was the work boot sole and on the other was smooth varnished wood, similar to but not as thick as a normal American wooden paddle. I am not a great fan of American paddles but have been spanked with them before and so I played safe and chose the smooth side, which gave the same brutal, all enveloping pain that a normal American paddle would. But after this I was informed that I was now going to be on the receiving end of the boot sole side of the paddle. The result was a pleasant surprise to me. This was still not a lightweight toy, it gave a lot of pain if not quite as much as an American style paddle. The type of pain was very different though and did not feel as brutal as the plain wooden side. I am presuming that this is because the pattern of the tread gave the flesh of my bottom somewhere to go, on impact.
I have seen paddles like this in shops before and was very critical of them, dismissing them as a worthless novelty. But now, having experienced one I am tempted to go out and buy one of my own. I would say that it is a high end of painful toy with an interesting and enjoyable sensation, well worth your time if you are seeking a hard but satisfying spanking.
If you are ever shown one of these and asked to choose which side, I recommend the boot tread side 🙂
