Sex Toy Review for the Fetish Fantasy Series Chopstick Slapper written by Ness
This flagellation device is similar to a birching rod in how it is made from two pieces of bamboo bound together. This rod isn’t as harsh as an actual bamboo cane, but still has a very satisfying impact.
The rod is 24 inches long and is reasonably light. The bamboo is bound with rope and is designed to have an oriental look that resembles chopsticks. It is the perfect accessory for those intending to have a Japanese themed bondage session, especially if shibari rope is involved. The bamboo is very smooth; though I did find a few splinters between the two pieces of wood, because these are situated between the wood, they are unlikely to cause your submissive any harm. The handle is very easy to grip, and adding security is a rope wrist loop. It easily glides through the air making a gentle swooping noise, and when swung with more force sometimes the bamboo shafts will clunk together.
When using the rod, it causes a moderate stinging sensation even when swung at full force. The main advantage to this device is the impact noise. The bamboo makes a very intimidating slapping sound, which is enough to shock your partner into obedience. Pain is not always needed when dominating your partner; appearance as well as sounds play a massive role. Even though the rod is milder than a riding crop, it still left some very satisfying welts that took over an hour to fade.
So far both I and my partner have used the rod with various forces applied. The rod seems to be stronger than I had expected. I was worried that the bamboo would easily split, but this has not occurred.
Overall, I like this chopstick style rod. Even though I find the appearance and strength of the toy to be rather mild, the impact noise is able to startle even me at times.
