I would call this an intermediate impact toy, bordering on advanced. As another reviewer said, it is more like a short silicone whip than a cane (though this sort of begs the question, is this the firmest silicone they can make it out of? What would this toy be like if it actually were stiff like a cane?? Inquiring sadists want to know haha). It takes practice to swing it safely, and I absolutely would not try it on a partner until practicing on a punching bag or a pillow or something else that can't be harmed. I am not afraid to admit the first few times I used it my follow through was not up to par and it had a tendency to snap back and hit my wrist.
That being said, once having practiced this quickly became one of my favorite all time impact toys. Stings like a MFer, I have not yet played with anyone capable of handling it at my full force. It leaves delightful little bruise spots wherever the tip lands, and days after use there is a bruis-y constellation on my partners backside that I love. I don't get much use out of the handle as an insertable (except for photo ops, where it makes a darling mousey little tail). But turn it around and use the handle as another impact toy? Boy HOWDY it is fun. So delightful to use, holding the whip part gives the handle good velocity, and it is very very thuddy (almost like a baton on a string, if you can imagine!) This toy is so much fun, and it is one of the very few things capable of actually leaving lasting marks on my fiancÃƒÂ©e!
This is an INTENSE toy! This is not beginner-handling friendly, and it's not particularly friendly if you don't like sharp, stinging sensations. This is not the impact toy to pick up if you really like soft spanks.
It's actually very, very flexible. This is not like your standard "cane". It doesn't hold its form at all. In fact, if you hold onto the handle, the "cane' portion itself will just dangle next to your hand. It's VERY flexible. This is because it's made of pure silicone. Unlike the shots of the Hurra Cane fully straight, this toy doesn't tend to hold that shape unless you nicely arrange it on the ground. There's no underlying support structure, so the toy is very flexible.
With that being said, that makes it more like a whip or a dragon tail than a cane. A very, very ouchy whip or dragontail. Which requires a lot of practice to wield properly.
That being said, the Hurra Cane has some great uses:
a) Its full silicone self makes it perfect for anyone with multiple partners. It can be entirely sterilized.
b) It's basically unbreakable. Unless you do something really, really silly, you're not going to break this cane via regular use. It's impossible.
c) It can also be used as an insertable toy. It can then be fully sterilized after that use.
d) Unique as all get-out. If you do dungeon play, expect lots of questions about what this toy is.
I'd recommend it - just know what you're getting into when you get it and have the experience to use it properly.
