Collection: Impact Play

What is impact play? Impact play is the act of using specially-designed kink toys to hit your partner for their pleasure. We know, we know. That's a dry definition. But just think of sexual spanking! Spanking is a type of impact play in BDSM. Not only is it an intimate and vulnerable activity to share with your partner, but the act of spanking releases those feel-good brain chemicals called endorphins which can heighten all of the other sensations during your sex session! In order to do this impact play, we use impact play toys which allow us to create different sensations.

First, let's talk about paddles. A paddle sex toy (like this one!) is a long, flat, sturdy toy that can be used for spanking. Most paddles are rigid, but there are a few exceptions that are softer and more-flexible in design. A sex paddle is a great beginner's start to impact play because it's so easy to handle. A paddle sex toy strikes where you want it to without requiring much practice. The sensation from a sex paddle can range from "thuddy" (which is more of a deep-tissue sensation) to "stingy" (which is more like a skin-surface sensation like being slapped).

A riding crop for sex is our next beginner-friendly type of impact play toy. What is a riding crop? A riding crop is a long, flexible stick. On one end of the stick, there's a handle for easy-gripping. On the opposing end of the stick, there's a small piece of rigid fabric. The user grips the handle and aims for the tip of the riding crop (with the rigid fabric piece!) to strike the area they want to strike. Like a paddle for sex, a BDSM riding crop is relatively easy to aim, and it lends itself well to a beginner's exploration of impact play toys.

Next, let's talk about floggers. What is a flogger? Floggers (like this one!) are strips of a fabric material attached to a handle. Floggers are designed to be swung with the "ends" of the flogger whip hitting the area where you want to hit. The sensation of a flogger can range from "massaging" all the way up to "painful". A flogger can take a tremendous amount of practice to gain proficiency at wielding one, and it's generally not the first impact play toy we recommend to beginners.

Of course, that isn't where the kinky impact play tools end! Slappers are like paddles - but designed more for making large amounts of noise (for the mental reaction) more than the physical sensations. A whip is like a flogger - but has a fewer number of "tails" and can be much harder to control. A tickler is a toy designed for "tickling" your partner, but it can be used for impact play as well. Looking for a specific type of impact play implement? Use the sidebar and select "Type" in order to easily sort our impact play selection by your choice. You can short by all six of these different types to easily figure out which impact play toys you're interested in.

Our curated selection of impact play tools offers a wide selection of ways to enjoy spanking sex and BDSM with your partner. We have beginner-friendly impact play toys, like paddles and riding crops, and more advanced implements as well - like whips and floggers. We especially recommend our beginner soft paddle, our vampire gloves, our starter BDSM kit, our slut paddle, our whip necklace, and more. With prices that start at $14, we have an impact play tool for everyone!
