MBS Spanko Brunch #339

Hello again, dear friends. Summer is a time for projects, and that is the theme for our conversation this week.

Have you or your partner created your own spanking implements? If so, how did these projects work out?

The guidelines for brunch are the same as always. You are invited to share your response in the form of a comment below. Once everyone has had a turn, I will post an edited summary.

two come immediately to mind......

one was a rope flogger I made.

I remember being a little frightened of the finished product until Sir used it on me - and truthfully I found it very disappointing. It was more a sensual implement and didn't come close to meeting my "masochist" needs. Being a bright sort I decided to add a knot to the end of each fall.

Still too sensual ..... I then added two knots to each fall........

Still too sensual .... I then added one more knot (grand total 3 knots per fall ) and much like the Goldilocks story - discovered it was wayyyyyyyyy too hard.

That nearly ended my toy making career.

However a few years later we went shopping for a nice wooden paddle ("Board of Education") and the prices for wooden paddles were outrageous.

I went to the local commercial cooking store and bought a HUGE ladle - approximately two feet in length and used to stir massive huge pots of food. I sanded it down - and put a couple of coats of stain on it..... and for the total cost of $10.00 had myself a really neat paddle.

But again like Goldilocks - the damn thing was too hard (because of the size and weight - it packs quite a whallop) !!!

Truth be told - now - some 5 - 10 years later the rope flogger is back to being more sensual than painful - and the wooden paddle - wellllllll yeah - it is still too hard - but is great for mild whallops..... gets my attention you can say

The hand is our favorite implement, the one we use all the time. So, no, we do not construct implements for our use.

Yes, we made 2 tawses by slitting several old belts in two, longitudinally (one into 2 fingers, the other into 3) to see if we liked the effect before buying a professionally-made one. And they were okay, but we did go on later to buy a two-finger tawse from Leather Thorn, which was heftier and more satisfying.

We also made a multi-strand flogger from a large, flat piece of thin suede. We roll into a cylindrical shape when we use it. This one is lightweight and good for erotic play.

I once made a leather strap out of a doubled-over leather belt from a thrift shop. It was a fun project. Ron used it from time to time but didn't like it because it was too floppy and he couldn't control it well. We discarded it in favour of commercial leather paddles and straps that are thicker and stiffer.

reneerose~closetgirl said...

Not yet, but on my to do list is to make one of Conina's floggers!

Ana said...

No, we are boring and stick to the same small number of implements that we already have. :)

ronnie said...

We've only ever made one which was a leather strap (or P did) made from a belt. He cut off the buckle, doubled over the leather and glued both sides. Works very well.

Love,
Ronnie

Bas said...

No, our only implements just grew on my body.

Fondlers Anonymous said...

BIKSS made me a flogger. It's the first flogger either of us has ever owned :)

Conina said...

I have made about a dozen floggers of different weights and sizes and types of rope. They range from incredibly sensual to OMG what WAS I thinking? I love them, and my husband uses most of them quite frequently.

Bella said...

I made a rope flogger that is just delicious! He likes use it on him too - on his back. It's not used as much for spanking as we though it would. It's more of an erotic toy.
We also have an old belt cut into a tawse. Haven't used this yet, but I think it will be stingier than the belt!
Then of course, we use common every day items as implements: wooden spoon, bread board, slotted spatula...

Julia said...

We have made a loopy johnny out of window screen rope and duck tape.
I haven't reviewed it yet on my blog because we have only tried it out twice in the closet, but it is very stingy and very silent.

Spanky said...

We have not made any spanking implements. I did once make a spreader bar that works pretty well though. A flogger sounds like a nice project, but I have too many thumbs to pull it off I think.

Christi @ Beautiful Trust & Submission said...

Nope, not yet at least. My husband has a well-worn belt I am eyeing to turn into a strap though. :)

Spankedhortic II said...

Yes I've made loads of stuff, some of it is documented in the blog under the "Toys Are Born" tag. These include my only major kinky DIY failure of attempting to build a spanking machine. I think that the favourite of my home mades is my Wet Chamois Flogger because you just cannot buy one of these, no matter how much money you have to spend. It feels good too but does tend to spread a lot of water about the place.

Master has made a couple of paddles, they tend to be large and heavy. He has also made a yoke type restraining device, made of wood it is very bulky. abby

Bryan said...

I've made a few paddles from 1"x4"s but my best are the homemade straps. I have a 1" wide double thick made from a belt that is murder.

Dear Bonnie,
As a long time lurker , thank you very much on your insiteful posts.
All our spanking paddles, tause, floggers etc are hand made with loving care and attention to detail. They are much better, cheaper and more effective than anything from a store. And there is the satifaction to see a red bottom caused entirely from your own efforts.

faerie said...

I made a suede flogger that I absolutely love. Musicman just made a wooden paddle for me yesterday that I am currently deciding how to finish. We also haven't decided yet whether or not to add holes. Any recommendations?

Like Anon above, I find it very satisfying knowing my flogger was hand made by me just for Musicman's use.

Saoirse said...

We haven't made implements for spanking. He prides himself on creative use of native household objects. I'm in love with the belt. Do the eye bolts in the ceiling beams count?

Mrs. Soft Bottom said...

I have made 2 floggers out of para-cord- one that is frayed with about 60 falls- very very soft and sensual. The other is again out of para-cord and has 10 falls each with a monkey's fist knot at the end.

I have zero talent in these type skills..

i'e made several paddles from wood, one a traditional one 18" long with holes from 5/8" plywood [very effective], another 15" from a 1x2 board with 1/8" holes, has a small sweet spot on the end that will heat ur seat. have a 12" "bun warmer" with a 3x3 square with a 1" hole in the center, it lives up 2 its name. another is in the shape of a ping pong paddle only its 1" thick w/ 4 1/2" holes, has its own unique feel spreads the blush & sting quickly on the cheeks. took a new belt cut off buckle and halved it glued those halves together and have a great strap. all these implements have padded handles and wrist lanyards. i really enjoyed making them but having them put to use on my own bottom is the real thrill. love what u do...buttwed!

We have one implement made with minimal effort and with no cost. Years ago an auto mechanic left a length of rubber hose behind on the floor of my wife's car when it was in for new brakes. Very soft and supple, black, about three-eighths inch diameter, twenty inches long it is perfect. Just added a six inch piece of quarter inch dowel into one end for a handle. Very nice sting, extremely quiet, leaves nice purple parallel traces, can be used for many, many licks. This was especially good for when the kids were little and still at home and we wanted to be quiet but still play hard. The legend of the parochial school I attended had the principal keeping one in his desk and using it occasionally though I never got to verify that. For those who are looking for maximum sting, minimum skin damage, and quiet but effective I highly recommend a trip to your local auto parts store for two feet of brake hose.

Ticcers aloud said...

We haven't quite got there yet, but my old wooden chopping board finally fell to pieces a few months ago..... he said keep it and he would make a paddle out of it.....

Hi Bonnie, we love making our own instruments of BDSM. In the southern hemisphere winter, the cold does not improve us having a little creativity.

In Spanish language we call BRICO-SADO. That I suppose, would be something like DIY of BDSM or Do It Yourself

Recently, there was a special whip, with a bamboo cane and a rubber band tied to the end.

We use it like a common whip, whipping with intensity for a long time.

The result can be seen in the pictures:
Home made whipping

The red marks of Charlotte body last only a couple of hours.

Greetings.

Enzo and Charlotte

Yes, I have made a number of paddles through the years (36) using different wood and thicknesses (including wooden fan blades..lol), often covering one side with leather for a softer effect, but it's hard to beat the old, oft used ping pong paddle. The most deadly is still the Vermont Store brush! My wife's usual preference is a light cedar paddle.

Loki_Darksong said...

Let's see. I have made floggers out of clothesline, suade, and even denim. Also I made a cool paddle by gluing three paddleball paddles together.

I did this way back when purchasing implements was expensive. I am impressed by them and I still have them in my possession.

REDHEAD DAIRIES said...

We have made almost every implement we own, a flogger, leater whip, wood paddle, loopy johnny, taws, leater strap and now we make implements for other people here in South Africa and we enjoy every moment of it. There is something special in making your own toys, and it is more of a joy to know it didn't cost you to much money.
