Tell Me How You Really Feel
I would be lying if I said that I wasn’t originally attracted to this Rainbow Glitter Rug Beater because of its pretty-factor. The handle is glittery! That’s my M.O. But for all the admiring I do of this toy’s sparkle, I give it the same attention for its stingy slap and the beautiful marks it leaves. It also rates high on the sex toy as cat toy approval scale [shown above being inspected by a discerning cat].
Material: Vinyl coated cable and vinyl lacing

The Good, The Bad, and the Sting
Rug/carpet beaters are traditionally made out of wicker or metal and intended to beat dirty rugs, but they work pretty great on humans too. This one is made from flexible vinyl-coated, steel cable, which is very stingy, even during lighter use. The flexibility lends to this bite because, similar to the Tantus Plunge Paddle, it takes minimal effort to get maximum sensation. With a small flick of the wrist, this beater already has a good range of motion, so when you add more force, it gets very painful. There’s a visual pay-off as well because the thin wire leaves very defined marks, and when used over a large area, the pattern looks almost like fish scales [mermaid status!].
The handle is vinyl lacing, which brings me back to keychain craft time at some summer camp I never attended in the early 2000s. However, it makes a very sturdy, easy to grip handle that feels comfortable in my hand. Also, glitter, so I will gladly sit down at this sparkly kink craft party. Since the cable is flexible and lightweight, the toy is also easy to store and pack. I’ve never experienced any damage or distortion when smushing it into tight places, although sometimes I have to push the wires back into place if they slide around. All of this vinyl means easy clean-up with soap and water. Say no to sticking this in your body though: vinyl is porous and can’t be fully sanitized, and with all the little crevices, just don’t. If you want a toy to use with fluids, check out materials that can be sanitized like silicone.
