The Endless Question (part 3)
Very light thin soft wood paddles can succumb to breakage, but don't get your hopes up... They are stingy, and the damn things just never seem to break at the beginning of a spanking. On the other hand, there are thick and heavy hardwood paddles that can only be burned, else they certainly burn your ass.
Our most recent acquisition is what many people might call a 'holy terror' style paddle from Woodrage Paddles. 3/4" of oak that looks a bit scary. Yet to be tried, we'll eventually see just where it fits in the grand scheme of things but I suspect it might be a memorable and effective item.
Oh, and there are far too many wooden spoons in the world and they should never be soaked in a pitcher of ice water before a spanking.
Modern technology has brought our behinds out of the dark ages with Lexan. My first experience with this space age material was with some paddles from Hanson Paddlewerks. Unfortunately, they just won't break and it's not for lack of trying. Some idiot (me) decided to drill holes in one of them... What was I thinking?
Cane-iac now has a very reasonably priced flexible vinyl/polypropylene prison strap-ish looking device that just sooner or later will likely end up as another tool in our collection. Having been both a user and recipient of a similar device a few years ago, I can attest to the nastiness of such a device.
