I blame Girly Juice honestly. If I’d never seen her Lexan paddle, I’d never have gotten the idea into my head to get one of my own. But I did see her posts. I read the posts where she rhapsodized over her Kink Machine paddle and I felt a powerful wave of desire to possess a beautiful paddle of my own. So you can imagine how I must’ve felt when I saw her paddle was no longer available for purchase. A great cry went up from my apartment as I raged over the death of Kink Machine, maker of beautiful impact toys. And so I scoured the internet looking for my perfect paddle. It took a lot of looking on Stockroom and Etsy and elsewhere to finally find what I was looking for. My search was ended at last when I finally stumbled upon the paddle of my dreams: The Ethos Leather Acrylic Paddle. It’s absolutely everything I hope it would be: gorgeous, painful and priced just right.
The Ethos Leather Acrylic Paddle is about 18 inches long, including the 6 inch handle. This gives the user plenty of handle to swing with. The paddle itself is 4 inches wide, which seems a little narrow in person, but is actually perfect. The paddle in 1/4 of an inch thick, so it provides a nice weight and paddle blade.
In person, the paddle is absolutely gorgeous. While most of my enjoyment comes from how this paddle performs against my ass, there’s no doubt that the visual aspect plays in to my choosing of this paddle.
The price of the paddle is also more than reasonable, $40 is a more than fair price for the quality of what you’re getting. Many quality acrylic paddles can be quite a bit more expensive, with the Paraphilia Acrylic Paddle at $60 on Stockroom.
The Ethos Leather Acrylic Paddle is exactly what a paddle should be. It has a good surface level bite without being overwhelming. A hard smack with this is enough to get my attention and make me ready for more without immediately crossing my pain threshold. In addition to the initial sting, there’s underlying element of thud. This causes my ass to redden beautifully without making me want to immediately stop the scene. A few minutes of use gets my butt red and tingly, and I can feel the stinging impact for a long time after the impact play has ended. Doing day to day activities with my ass still reverberating really appeals to the exhibitionist in me! Compared to the leather paddle I reviewed earlier, the sensations this paddle evokes are more full-bodied. If the paddles were coffee, the leather paddle would be a blond roast while the Ethos Leather Acrylic Paddle would be a robust breakfast blend.
I love this paddle so much. I’ve found I’ve been using a lot more since I’ve gotten my school girl costume for Halloween, I just love the way I look when I’m taking a beating. The visual of a school girl with her skirt hiked up and her cute round ass getting paddled by such a gorgeous clear paddle is thrillingly hot. This paddle has made me more adventurous with my dirty snaps, much to the delight of my partner. Sending him pictures of me enjoying my paddle and especially sending them where he can enjoy them is also intensely enjoyable to me as well.
Because the Ethos Leather Acrylic Paddle is clear, it can get a little smudgy from the oils your skin secretes. To keep your paddle in top shape, all you need is a little soap and water and a soft cloth to dry it. If you’re gentle with the paddle and make sure not to scratch it, maintenance is fairly simple.
The Ethos Leather Acrylic Paddle is a very versatile toy that suits the aesthetic of many scenes. It feels well balanced, delivers a satisfying blow and it’s nicely priced at $40 plus shipping. I personally love it since it’s beautifully clear, allowing the person topping to see the ass their beating, and it feels perfect in the hand and on the ass. If you’re considering a paddle and know you’re down for more robust sensations, I highly recommend this paddle!
I purchased this paddle with my own money, I just wanted to tell you all about it!
