STEP ONE - GENTLE WARM UP: You want to try and increase blood flow to an area to make it as sensitive and pleasurable as possible, our Studded Handle Flogger is a great way to lightly tickle over the skin, creating a pins-and-needles sensation.
STEP TWO - TAKE THINGS UP A LEVEL: Once you feel ready, try moving on to some light spanking. Our Stitched Flat Paddle is ideal for this as it absorbs some of the spank to prevent full impact on your lover's skin.. just yet.
STEP THREE - WORK OUT THE SWEET SPOTS: Spanking is about drawing blood to the surface of the skin, making it sensitive. A spank followed by a tickle is going to feel much better than the tickle on its own. A great place for this is the 'thut' - the magical spot between the bottom of your bum cheeks and the top of your thighs, so it's the 'thut' - the thigh-butt. Try using our Tawse Paddle to stroke around this area before spanking.
STEP FOUR - START LIGHT AND BUILD UP: Set up a safe word before progression and remember to communicate and read your partner's body language. If they seem to be enjoying it, keep going while increasing the pressure. We recommend using a traffic light system. Green for harder/faster, amber for continue with caution/close to the limit and red for everything to stop.
STEP FIVE - MIX THINGS UP: Variation is key. Try to not concentrate on one area as even the lightest stroke in one place repeatedly will become tiresome. After all, it's all about trying new things.
