I was really surprised when I received my post from Uberkinky three weeks ago. Not surprised because I’d received a parcel from them . . . after all they ARE my favourite, first-choice on-line supplier for all things Kinky . . . but surprised at the size of the item inside as I unwrapped the bubble-wrapping.
I knew I’d ordered the UberKinky Leather Slapper Paddle, and I had read the measurements information . . . but I obviously hadn’t visualised those measurements correctly because as the Slapper Paddle emerged from it’s wrapping I was surprised at it’s length, and it’s width at the . . . slapping end.
Don’t worry though, my surprise was one of excitement and definitely not disappointment . . . and I simply couldn’t wait to try it out.
So that very night I ordered my No.1 submissive to disrobe and “assume the position” bent over the edge of the bed. And I’m happy to report that neither of us were really disappointed and it has quickly become a regular starting point for all of our sessions since.
Just a “starting point” I hear you ask? Well, I will explain . . . but first more about those measurements and the Paddle itself.
The leather of the strap, or the slapping part, is actually like a long folding loop with each half, if you like, about 2mm thick. The leather is lightly textured . . . feels lovely when you rub the softness of your finger over it . . . and quite firm and rigid, and yet quite supple at the same time. The length of the strap is 15 inches from the handle to the fold of the loop (so that is 30 inches of leather before it is folded over and secured back into the handle).
As you can see from my photographs the strap tapers out from it’s narrowest point of one and a half inches at the handle to an impressive four and a half inches at the end where it folds over and runs back to the handle again. And it is that folded element of the design that gives it such a wonderful, springing (stinging?) smack . . . and a wonderfully loud whacking sound, which I absolutely love, as it smacks against soft skin. Obviously the air moving between the two folds of the strap as you swing is what gives it that wonderful, and addictive, slap!!!
As you can probably tell, I love using the Leather Slapper Paddle to warm-up my submissives . . . and get us both into that special energy and excitement-rush of an impact session. The wide leather leaves a lovely warm and rosy glow on the subs bum cheeks, without the welts or stripey marks that my Uberkinky Cane does. And my subs, on whom I have administered it, seem to love it too . . . as the sensation is, apparently, a stinging and pleasant pain without the intensity of some of my other implements.
But . . . and there is always a but isn’t there . . . it is the handle that for me is my one area of disappointment and the one reason I can’t keep using it for too long during a session. If you look closely at my photographs you will see that the handle is not really rounded. Perhaps because of the practicality of the production process, or to make the moulding and stitching of the handle into the leather strap, the handle has a flattened edge on each side as you grip it. And I found that makes it quite uncomfortable to use for any length of time because it seems to judder, and jar more against the palm of my hand each time I make a strike. And the harder I swing and smack, the more I feel it jarring against my grip. So although my submissive might be begging for harder and more extreme smacks, I find it becomes more painful and uncomfortable for me, the longer and harder I try to use it.
So, although every session is meant to be a combination of pleasure and pain . . . and I definitely enjoy the pleasure of hearing those loud “smacks” and seeing those rosey cheeks becoming redder and redder . . . I just find that I can’t wield it for as long as I (or my subs) would like.
Hence the reason why I said earlier in this review that the Slapper had become my regular “starting point” for one of my impact sessions. But, of course, we all like to change our positions . . . and change our implements as each session progresses don’t we, so aside from my reservations about the handle, I simply LOVE the Uberkinky Leather Slapping Paddle and would highly recommend it as the perfect addition to any dommes punishment box.

The UberKinky Leather Slapper Paddle was sent to me, free-of-charge, by UberKinky for an honest and un-biased review.
The Modesty Rider:
I realise, of course, that there are already thousands of long-established Sex Toy Reviewers and Review sites . . . most of whom will be far more adept at explaining all the technical details and specifications of things. But for me, sexy clothes and lingerie, sexy toys . . . and even sexy books . . . are all about adding a little fun and excitement to things. So that is how I tend to approach my reviews and videos!!! Just to explain “how it was for me” in a fun, and light-hearted, way without taking things too seriously! Chances are that if something makes me giggle and tingle and feel good, it will score higher on my Modesty Rating.
