The Saffron Acrylic Spanker is a clear acrylic paddle with rounded edges and a dark straight handle. The circular holes on its thin rectangular spanking surface offer additional flexibility and swing speed to the paddle. It introduces lovely residual imprints on the skin if used to spank thoroughly.

First Impressions

At first glance, I was curious about this toy. Its rigid frame and punched out features caught my eye, and I was eager to put it to the test. I don’t have many plastic impact tools in my toy box, so this one was immediately different in texture, swing and overall feel. I tested it out on myself for a bit, and I was impressed with how much power I can deliver with a simple swing! The shape of the paddle allows the spank to distribute along the skin evenly, which creates a unique experience for the person being spanked. The amount of precision and control you get with this toy is comparable to using your hand, only difference is that you don’t get the residual pain in the palm from certain high impact spanks.

To Spank or to SPANK?

The Sportsheets Saffron Acrylic Spanker quickly became a casual favorite in my arsenal. I love the sound it makes as it whooshes through air before striking flesh. The spanks resound powerfully as well, which alarmed me slightly at first, but my bottoms loved it. I can quickly reduce even the most stubborn brat to wriggles, groans and pants with some targeted swings from this beauty. I was very interested in discovering what kinds of marks this toy left behind. While I did notice a few circular hole imprints on my canvases initially, the overwhelming result after a long session was heated, flushed and tender behinds, with few distinct hole imprints to be found. I was easily able to reach the globes of the ass, upper thighs and upper back with this toy.

Some Special Moves

I enjoyed trying out many ways to use this spanker. Other than the traditional swings to spank, you can take advantage of the Saffron Acrylic Spanker’s rigid flexibility to spice things up. Grip the handle, pull back on the clear paddle, take careful aim and let the pain plane fly! This move is especially fun since you can ramp up the intensity with no sweat. The edges of the spanker are rounded and smooth, making it lovely to press into skin after you have spanked them thoroughly. Trace lines on your canvas, spell out your name! It’s always nice to offer your bottom a new sensation other than finger scratches and pats to soothe them while spanking.

I like how the Saffron Acrylic Spanker looks in terms of design – the acrylic paddle definitely made me do a double take. At the end of the day, it is a plastic implement so it lacks the luxurious look and feel that other toys have. Despite the more basic design, I think this paddle works well and does exactly what you'd expect it to do. Its design is functional and simple.

The Saffron Acrylic Spanker is quite easy to use and has almost no learning curve. It is a great toy for impact beginners and veterans. The handle is straight and has a rubbery silicone grip. I think someone with mobility or grip issues could struggle with this toy after a while. If you also tend to get sweaty hands, there's the chance of it flying out of your grip thanks to how smooth it is. There is a cord on the handle that you could loop around your wrist to reduce those chances.

The spanker looks basic but it feels reliable and sturdy. I haven't had to worry about it breaking yet, but so far it has held up quite well. The acrylic is smoothened and has no cracks or snags.

I think this is well priced. The Saffron Acrylic Spanker is a good inexpensive addition to the toy box and will likely last forever since its plastic!

The Saffron Acrylic Spanker is wonderful to see in action. The 13 die-cut holes reduce air resistance and improve the flexibility so it whistles through the air before creating a loud harsh swat. It also leaves behind some of the hole-y imprints if you're dedicated enough and use only this toy to spank. The grip can get slick if you have sweaty hands, so be mindful.

The Saffron Acrylic Spanker comes in a clear plastic wrap and a card attached to the loop on the handle. It is very standard and classic. The card contains the name of the product, its materials, and a limited lifetime warranty statement. There are no how to use instructions. I'm not a big fan of toys coming wrapped this way but it doesn't need to be wrapped up for storage so I will be lenient ;).
