Once upon a time I couldn’t see kinky toys for sale without wanting to buy something. Of course I didn’t have much money and had less discrimination so I bought a lot of not-very-good toys, but still. I still remember the rush of naughty excitement when I bought my first spanking toy.
I bought it at the now-sadly-defunct Magick and Fetish Shop at Sunset Junction in Hollywood. The owner had belts, floggers and all sorts of interesting things (including a combination incense burner and punishment stick) but I gravitated toward the hairbrush. It was a simple wooden brush with black bristles. A true hairbrush, probably designed for a man. I should have had it tested on me first because it also had a series of three or four deep grooves carved into the back. These acted like holes on a paddle and made the brush very painful. While it was my first toy and I was thrilled to buy it, I was less thrilled when it got used on me. In fact I hated it and not in any sort of good way. Fortunately someone else had it tried on them and loved it so I happily gave it to her — with both hands, no-take-backs.
At this past Shadow Lane I bought a small and very pretty paddle for me to use when I spank people. It even came with its own flowered bag. It’s not to be used on me, but rather to be used by me. So far I’ve only used it on Indy (who vouched for it being effective despite its small size). I’ll take a picture of it and post it here someday. Meanwhile you’ll just have to trust me when I say it’s a beautiful thing.
Can you remember the first implement you bought? Were you a better shopper than me? Do you still have it
