The Bad Kitty Leather Paddle is a very well made and large paddle sure to suit your needs. Sure, its stiff, stingy and it means business but it has a softer side too. That softer side is just what you need for a good warm up of whats to come, or for those who are more inexperienced with paddling. The fur pads it so it takes quite a bit of force to make it hurt. Its firmer side is completely the opposite though. Just a flick of your wrist will get your point across!
