I love shopping at Target. I know not why. As I typically hate shopping. But there is something about Target that soothes the soul. Perhaps they pump some kind of relaxant into the air?
Perhaps it was the beautiful Conair “Naturals” hairbrush I recently stumbled upon at Target and immediately purchased, while marvelling at its low-cost and rich wood. It is a lovely deep wood with boar bristles. The brush is a perfect flat-backed oval number, made of exotic Pagoda wood and reasonably priced at about $20.
It’s the finest brush I have seen, short of taking out a loan to acquire an overpriced Mason & Pearson brush from the UK. However, I have yet to test this Conair model on a naughty hottie over my lap–any volunteers? 🙂
There is something terribly exciting about the hairbrush — to me, it symbolizes the entire spanking fetish. It’s an icon of our kink. And there was something amazingly exciting that day about buying a spanking implement at Target — a regular shopping excursion suddenly turned hot and erotic. It’s interesting that a common domestic object is so wonderfully and delightfully ‘pervertable.’ Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar, but a hairbrush….is never just a hairbrush.
Considering that I am a bit thin on my dome, and there is no reason why I would ever buy a brush, I wonder if the cute cashier had any inkling about my purchase that day.
There’s a relatively new player on the scene, an intriguing company called Cane-iac, which makes all sorts of naughty spanking toys, including custom paddles with snazzy graphics — even a custom one for this blogger.
Some of their bottom-sizzling products feature the delightful erotic artistry of artist, blogger and writer Patty.
Patty told CRR: “I have a whole collection of their canes, and their nifty little otk slip on palm protector paddle is diabolical. Their quality is exceptional and their mission is high quality at affordable prices.”
Retro-fueled and vintage-inspired Rosy Bottom continues to impress and delight with fun, whimsical yet practical products for 2008, including this cherry-themed set. Their gift packages are perfect for that special sub, or Top, in your life. (New hairbrush designs are in the pipeline as well.)
According to the site: “I love cherries! Don’t we all? This pretty hand painted bucket comes filled with our most popular Spanking Spatula, a Square Spatula and Wooden Spoon. These are great implements for spanking and are made of a hard wood that is 1/4″ thick. They come either decorated in roses or plain. They are sure to leave a very Rosy Bottom….”
The London Tanners makes top-of-the-line, hand-crafted leather straps and other spanking implements of all styles with a massive selection. One of their latest products is this flogger/strap/whippy-type implement pictured below.
Ian informed CRR with the latest news from The London Tanners:
“I am very excited to announce two new members of The London Tanners team. Firstly we are really pleased to have one of the worlds top spanking models Bailey, of Spanking Bailey fame, join us as our official spokesmodel and customer service liaison.
“Secondly we have taken on an apprentice to both help make and learn the craft of making leather disciplinary instruments his name is Tyler a young man in his twenties who is proving very talented with his hands and a fast learner.
“We are working on a couple of new items for 2008 including a copy of a Belgium piece which is a double 3 tailed tawse type flail/slapper, also a very fine tapered strap we have affectionately named the Rats Tail. Both of these will be especially liked by Lady tops as well as their male counterparts because of their slim shaped handles.”
