I have a good collection of impact toys now, and I can say without a doubt that the dragon tail is my favorite stingy instrument. I use the handle for a little thuddy sensation occasionally, but the stinginess of the thin and tapered end is deceptively intense. The pain doesn't register sometimes until the 5th or 6th hit. Then it burns like fire with each consecutive strike. The marks are also very distinctive, so you know where they are getting the good feels when you have a nice series of marks to guide you. I once thought I lost my Precious and was sad to see it was sold out. Luckily, it returned to me as if it has a will of its own. I may have to buy a backup or two... just in case.
I love this thing! Great quality product overall and AMAZING customer service from Tantus. IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m a bratty sub and wanted to see how this would work for funishments / punishments. Definitely didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t disappoint. The slap sound is addictive and the tip adds a mean little sting. I havenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t tried inserting it (yet) but I can tell IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m going to get a lot of fun and discipline from my dragon tail.
Thinking about naming mine The Salty Papercut or something. Works so efficiently that it's hard not to use it too, well, hard (at least as a beginner). I showed it to some friends of mine who are pretty hardcore and they were all impressed by how devilish this little snapper is. Floppier than it looks, but not too floppy. The silicone is firm but flexible and not too thin. The handle end is even more potentially vicious as an impact device (but felt good in my butt). Love the way it fits in my hand (should be noted I have fairly small hands, even for a lady).
Looking forward to trying the Pelt next, which will likely be more my husband's speed as well. We're used to leather floggers (which are basically ticklers, especially compared to silicone) so filling out our collection with some higher-level stuff is very exciting!
TL;DR: Last reviewer was dead on... this thing has no "gentle" mode ;)
This toy is not for beginners. Well, at least it wasn't for me since I'm too new at impact play. It has two main ends for impact playÃ¢â‚¬â€œthe tail part stings a lot. Even using the softest of hits, it packs a really good sting. I personally haven't tried out the insertable end, but I will as I explore impact play just a bit more.
