The Kiss of Leather

Anyone who reads here regularly probably already knows I'm a wood girl. I love the wooden hairbrush and the wooden spoon. The wood paddle Musicman made is absolutely magical in my opinion. I did cover one side of the paddle with some lovely soft suede and the contrast is quite amazing.

That suede left me with a desire to try leather. I've read about many subs loving the belt. The belt is a huge trigger for me and if he ever came near me with one it would not be pretty. So off to Edenfantasys I went, looking for something leather. I've not had the best luck in the past making purchases from the internet and have been very pleasantly surprised with how easy they are to deal with.

Since I do love wood so much and was still a bit anxious about trying leather, I didn't want to spend a ton of money on something I might not like. I also realized when I was looking at the leather paddles that I found them a bit intimidating. I didn't want anything that even remotely looked like a belt. They have some with studs, they were quite eye catching. But maybe not such a great choice to start with.

So I browsed the selection and finally decided on this one

Bitch impressions paddle - Paddle They have several different ones in this style with a choice of words or symbols. I picked this particular one because this word has a particular meaning for Musicman and myself.

It arrived a couple weeks ago, we've used it several times since we got it. As a spanking implement, I wasn't too impressed. I guess when I want a spanking I prefer the bite of wood. I did tell Musicman it would be good for a warm up prior to the paddle, but he isn't much for warm ups or using multiple implements.

I did discover that it is heavenly when used elsewhere on the body. Do ya like breast spanking? I do and this paddle is lovely when used on the breasts. Do ya like pussy spanking? I do, the width of this paddle is just right to be used on the pussy. It's pretty effective when applied to the insides of the thighs too.

Musicman is quite adept at applying it to all those places. It lights my fire when he drags it slowly across my throat, or my face or down between my breasts. It feels cool and somewhat soft and soothing when used in that manner. He has the unerring ability to read the relaxation in my body and at just the right point lifts the paddle and begins to apply it more forcefully.

The fact that he never seems to follow any kind of pattern keeps me a bit off kilter as to where the blow will land. Will it be on my breasts, or my pussy or maybe the inner thighs? Doesn't really matter where it lands, I like them all.

I suppose at some point we should try it again as an actual spanking implement. Maybe I will learn to like the kiss of leather on my backside, maybe not. Even if I don't, this paddle was worth the price since I definitely like the kiss of leather on other areas of my body.

Just a quick update, shortly after I posted this Musicman was in the mood to play. I know he hadn't read this post yet, so he must have read my mind. He used the leather paddle to spank me. I think I'm really gonna like it used for that too.

    1. Thanks Spanky, so far it has been a positive experience dealing with them. Maybe someday I will get that studded paddle, it sure is pretty :)

  2. Have you thought about a leather flogger, these can be very sensual or intense dependent on how hard obviously and are versitile enough to be used all over.

    Hope you enjoy the new paddle.

  4. I'm one of your friends who is a big leather fan. I am a fan of the belt, but then I have no history with it other than with Nick. I recently ordered a wide leather strap with holed that has become my current favorite, well that and the dogging bat.

    I'm glad you're trying different things and enjoying them.

    Hugs,

    1. I do seem to find myself in the minority when it comes to preferring wood to leather. I'd say the leather is starting to grow on me, lol :)

  8. I love my leather rose paddle from John, Leatherthornpaddles.homestead.com. Haven't tried anything from Edenfantasys.

    Love,

    1. I looked at that site, they have some beautiful things. It would have been a shame to get one just to find out I didn't like leather. Since that doesn't seem to be the case I will have to give them another look. I do have a birthday in the not so distant future, lol ;D

  9. We have a Leatherthorn paddle as well...they are really well made and not at all flimsy/floppy.

  11. I'm a belt fan, but I've been so very curious about a leather paddle. Might have to bug spanky for that Eden Fantasies discount code...

  12. I am one of your friends that loves lather too, the belt, paddle, strap and doggin bat. We have always had good success with Eden Fantasies.

    Glad you learned to be leather's friend too.

    1. I wish I didn't have such awful memories associated with the belt, it would make things easier. Unfortunately, I do, so I'm happy I found a way around it to experience leather too :)

  13. Sounds like a wonderful addition

  14. I got ours from cane-iac.com, good workmanship, reasonable prices, nice selection, fast shipping. Daddy is a fan of wood. And most of my pre-Daddy toys were wood, lexan and delrin. We'd been talking about leather and so for his birthday I got him a double razor strap, a studded strap, an otk belt and a gorgeous piece that's braided without having been cut - wild. I like leather a lot :)

  15. I'm generally spanked with wood too, but I'm curious about trying a leather paddle. Sounds like you're warming up to it -- no pun intended ;)

    1. I'm definitely warming up to the leather :) Though I still ike wood best, lol. All puns intended.

  16. We have a leather paddle but I feel it's a little on the large side and a bit cumbersome. A smaller 'something' may be called for. Saying this, Mitch prefers the wood too. Something Sara said in one of her posts a while back along the lines of "minimum effort, maximum effect" - yeah Mitch really got stuck on those 4 little words lol!
    We rarely use the belt, not because of any past emotions about it, but I don't know, it's the one thing that I'm aware of that I have a tiny uncomfortable feeling about.

    1. I like the size of the one we got, perfect for many, many things, lol.

      A belt will never be in our arsenal, but as much as I love wood, I'm learning I kinda like leather too :)

  17. My husband usually uses his hand when spanking me. He has teased me playfully with a spatula and a wooden spoon in the kitchen as I am passing by but usually it is just his hand. He has tried my wooden hair brush (and I admit blushing I have used it on myself when I feel my needs aren't being met and I need to fulfill my own needs). He has also used his belt a couple of times and I love the feel and there is a leather paddle from Leather Thorn paddles that has a rose on that I have dreamed of since I first shared my secret with my husband several years ago and have hinted to him to buy it for me but I am still not in possession of it. I may just have to purchase it for myself. Then I just have to convince him to use it. :-) I think anything he uses on me is going to be mild in his hands. His hand can bring a mighty sting though, which I like. :-)

    1. I've never thought about self spanking, not sure I could do it. Then again, I don't masturbate either.

      The leatherthorn paddles are very pretty, now that I have tried leather and like it I may have to get one in the future. Till then, what we have works quite well :)

    2. I don't often and I wouldn't at all except that I think my husband has a lower labido than most the men out here...and once a month isn't enough for me to feel truly connected to him...

    3. Oh Honey, that wasn't a judgement, in fact I often feel like I'm the odd man out for not doing it :)

    4. thanks...I guess I am still a little shy talking about sex and still a little embarrassed at my need for being spanked, even at 39...thanks for making me feel it is ok to say anything and be myself... :-)
