The London Tanners catalog of several years ago designates this little gem a Boudoir Paddle. It was presented to me by a friend, who had the D, for Devlin or possibly Dragon, embossed on it.
If you will notice, there is no-nonsense stitchery around the outside edges. This is not for decoration–it took some serious-business twine to hold the several layers of thick leather together, and it is this heavy-duty sewing that ultimately gave the paddle its Dragon cognomen.
And, yeah – that arnica is not there for nothing when this little number has been at work, girls. Trust me.
The implement pictured in use here is not, strictly (!) speaking, the Dragon Paddle, though it is a similar, somewhat larger model.
As you can see from this moment-of-impact shot, the edges of the paddle make full contact with tender bum skin. And as you may note in the top picture, those twine-y stitches form a sort of crosshatch pattern.
The result is that after twenty or thirty – or a hundred – sharp smacks of this very handy implement (it fits my jeans’ back pocket perfectly except for the handle) a girl’s bottom has these lovely red, pinpoint arches that look, for all the world, like small but definite dragon bites.
So if any of you girls feel the need for dragon bites on your bum that don’t actually rend and tear, your best bet is a Boudoir Paddle from London Tanners – wielded by someone who knows what he’s doing.
That is all,
