The “best” impact implements depend on an individual’s personal preferences and the type of sensation they are looking to experience.
Some people may prefer a flogger for its more diffuse impact, while others may prefer a cane for its more focused impact and we have some who enjoy the riding crop or paddle or just bare hand over-the-knee spanking.
Here are some examples of impact implements that are commonly used in BDSM play
Floggers – these are multi-tailed instruments that can be made out of various materials (leather, rubber, suede, etc) and can deliver a wide range of sensations, depending on the type of flogger and the technique used, In the BDSM scene Dom/sub the Dominatrix will be very skilled in using the items
Canes – these are thin, stiff instruments that can be made out of various materials (bamboo, plastic, metal, etc) and deliver a more intense and focused impact. Again these are used in corporal punishment-type scenarios
Paddles – Paddles can be made out of various materials (leather, wood, etc.) and are typically used to deliver a sharp and intense sensation on the buttocks area. There are so many different types of paddles, from leather rubber to PVC, and studded
Whips – Whips can vary greatly in design and materials, from bullwhips to single-tail whips. The sensation of the whip striking the skin can range from a mild sting to more intense pain.
Crops – These are short-handled whip-like instruments typically used in equestrian sports and BDSM play.
