Looks can be deceiving! The Sportsheets Saffron Ping Pong Paddle looks elegant and simple but is a must for any impact play. It is described as a paddle for Sadists and Doms, but Subs will enjoy it too. The soft exterior provides a warm, gentle touch, and the paddle's sturdiness allows for a powerful spank that will leave a relaxing sting. The paddle portion is wide enough to cover any size rump and sized just right for giving soft pats all over the body.

The First Swing

This spanking paddle made me feel powerful and naughty at the same time. My first impression was “This is pretty!”. It’s neatly stitched and soft on the skin. It’s also the right size to pack in my bag and travel with. I played with this paddle at a BDSM party — the first scene was me being a top (the person who assumes control or who is doing the activity). I paddled a woman’s body, and the paddle made it more intense. First, I patted her body soft and fast, warming her up for the “swing back slap”. It was fun using this on someone, but even more fun having it used on me!

The Next Swing

In the next scene, I received slaps and punishments. I’ll set the scene for you: I’m only submissive to one Dom, and I allowed him to control and coach me through the painful pleasure. While bent on my knees with my butt in the air, he gave me 3 soft hits to prepare me for what was to come, adding more force with each swing. With each swing he added more power, leaving me with a tingly sting and trophies on my body (the marking on the skin after impact play) for us to admire later.

This paddle is so beautiful that I didn’t want to use it! I admired the paddle the moment I saw it, and fell in love the moment I felt it. It has a soothing appearance. The color is a bold maroon, and though the description says red, it’s darker than that. The wrist hook is also simple and comfortable. The stitch pattern is neatly stitched and gives a classy look. This is a simple well designed must-have for impact play.

The Saffron Ping Pong Paddle has a comfortable wrist loop on the handle that adds security when used during play. During each scene, you should warm up the body first to prepare your partner for spankings and intense paddling. The handle is convenient for holding the paddle but, in my opinion, it could have a better grip. Swinging the paddle during play may seem easy but sometimes you have to practice your swing, so you don't appear sloppy and do not injure your partner.

You might have noticed the word sturdy mentioned several times throughout this review. 'Sturdy' best describes the quality of this paddle. There are many words associated with sturdy, such as firmly built, unlikely to break, solid, durable, and many more. I rate the Sportsheets Saffron Ping Pong Paddle as great quality. The bold color gives it an elegant and stylish appearance. You will feel like royalty with this in your hand!

Based on the quality and texture of this paddle it is well worth the price. It is priced at around $24, which is very reasonable compared to other paddles. I have bought paddles that break easily, and so far I believe that this one is made to last and, if well-maintained, it could last a long time.

This is a well-covered, convenient-sized tool to add to any BDSM collection. I used it on multiple people doing multiple things, as well as having it used on me. The online description says it delivers a sensual swat and I agree. It was during disciplining play when I felt its impact, it was soft on my flesh and gave my behind a lasting sensation. I enjoyed playing with it and would suggest it to all my kinky friends!

The package for this paddle was basic. It came in a clear plastic bag, which was not discreet. There was nothing attached to it and no writing on the plastic. It also doesn't come with its own storage bag, so you'll have to supply your own.

This paddle is unique because it is vegan-friendly. It is lightweight and is made from soft faux-leather wrapped around a strong paddle. The whole paddle is body-friendly and water-resistant, but should not be left in water for long periods. It is easy to clean — the best way to do so is with soap and a damp cloth and allow it to air dry. It did not come with a storage bag, but since it's small, it's convenient to store in the most discreet locations.

I love this product so much that I bought one for my partner so he would have his own paddle to play with. It is an amazing paddle — I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys BDSM. Whether you are Dominant, Submissive, or just enjoy spankings, this paddle was made for you.

There is no user manual available online for the Sportsheets Saffron Ping Pong Paddle but it’s quite simple to use. Check out my How To guide above for ideas

Yes It is. Impact play is any things sexual involving hitting or being hit with an object.

Impact play is popular in the BDSM community. But it’s not just for that. Impact play can be used by anyone.

You want to avoid the lower back. Hitting this area can cause kidney damage. The neck, stomach, joints and body parts that experience chronic pain.

Safety and consent are very important during impact play. A safe word is used instead of no or stop. Having a safe word is a clear understanding of when to quit or hit softer. Some people choose to use stoplight words. Green: is a way for the person being spanked to express pleasure or give them more impact. Yellow: means it might be a bit too much. Red: means stop everything.

It all depends on your pain tolerance. It can be painful and to some a pleasurable feeling.
