First Impression

My first impression of this toy was “This is going to be fun” and it was. The Saffron Tap & Tickle is perfect for impact play, as it gives you the choice between cropping and flogging. I am heavily involved in the BDSM community, I enjoy topping as well as being submissive to my Dom. While playing with the Saffron Tap & Tickle, I was able to experience multiple scenarios. The first scene involved me Topping. My person was positioned on a spanking bench, using the crop end I gave her soft taps all over her body. With each tap, I slowly increased the impact. Her moans were music to my ears, telling me she enjoyed it very much. Next, I glided the flogger against her skin, then I used the flogger to whip her behind. I felt powerful, and if used properly, this toy will make you feel that it too.

An Amazing Experience

Next, My Dom went to work on me! He is a pleaser, so he started by teasing me and lightly tapping me all over. The tapping sensation builds anticipation. I loved hearing the “snapping sound” as the crop hit my skin and the harder he went, the more intense the sounds were. There’s nothing jaw-dropping about this product — it is simple and fun to use. I love this toy because I can use it in many different ways. The crop to tap and whip, and the falls for flogging and to spread against the skin. We initiated a safe word before our scene began but I never used it because it felt so good that I wanted more.

The Sportsheets Saffron Tap and Tickle Crop Flogger is beautifully made. It has a red faux leather crop, a black flexible shaft and handle, and red silicon flogger threads. The color combination gives it an incredible look. Each end gives a different fee. The threads are nicely sewn giving it an neat appearance. It stands out because of its double-end as well as having color and not the common black color for BDSM toys. It is perfectly designed and will add something extra to role-playing.

It doesn't get any easier than this. The Sportsheets Saffron Tap and Tickle Crop Flogger is simple to use. It is fun and easy to control but just remember to avoid hitting any joints or areas with existing pain. Playing with this toy involves gripping and a lot of wrist movement so if you have joint pains in your wrist this might not be the best toy for you. If you are into BDSM, you will appreciate the style, colors, movement, and flexibility of this item. This toy is for all levels of players and will gain the attention of anyone in the room.

The quality is superb. It might be made in a factory but the well-crafted appearance gives a handmade appearance. When used properly it gives a loud snap sound that will catch everyone's attention. It is sturdy and flexible. It is smooth to the touch and the faux leather crop and silicon threads will leave a painful yet pleasurable feeling on your skin. It has an elegant look that demands respect.

The price for this item is $31.99, and I think that it's well worth the price. The quality, the feel, and the look are a few reasons why I believe all my kinky friends will enjoy it. It is unique because you can alternate between the crop and the flogger. You will receive one item with this purchase but the value of what you will receive is much the same as purchasing two items for the price of one.

The riding crop, is a tool used to guide horses but has been adapted into the kink world. Flogging was a means of enforcing discipline in the early years but now is used in the kink world as well. Imagine a world where everything is double the pleasure? that is what you get with this tap-and-tickle toy. The performance allows you to focus on various parts of the body. Online the site describes it as leaving your plaything quivering and anticipating your next spicy stroke and I agree.

The toy arrived in a clear plastic package. It was not discreet but I did not need discretion, so this did not bother me. The only thing on the package was the name of the item. There's not much to say about the packaging because there was not much to it.

The Sportsheets Saffron Tap and Tickle Crop Flogger is perfectly made. The material is 40% Polyurethane, 40% Silicone, and 20% PVC with a looped faux leather crop. It is soft against the skin and the materials are body-safe. It did not come with a storage bag but it is lightweight, thin, and easy to travel with. It is easy to clean, all that is needed is soapy water, spot cleaning as needed and allow it to air dry. The shaft is made with soft rope-like material so I would not suggest getting it soaked but this toy is considered water resistant.

The crop end can provide pain or arousing sensations.

This toy does not have a hanging loop. The best way to store it is in a play bag. Try not to store bending, it could cause the shaft to be crooked or unusable
