This thing HURTS. When I first got it, I had a stroke of genius and I smacked my palm with it. I dropped the paddle, held my hand, and walked around hunched over, while muttering insults at myself. That’s how my first thirty seconds with the Plunge Paddle went.
Okay, so the Plunge Paddle from Tantus, is a di-ddle or a pa-ldo. It’s a paddle with a dildo for a handle. On one side you get the pain, and on the other side you get the pleasure. Or at least that’s the idea. The handle is designed to hit g-spots, p-spots, whatever kind of spot spots you can think of. The thing is, it doesn’t. Not for me. I’ve tried and tried, and still nothing. The pain I feel, the pleasure (from the dildo end), I do not.
The paddle side of the Plunge does not fuck around. It takes some experimentation before using it in play. I mean it. Smack (start softly) the side of your thigh with it. You’ll find you don’t have to rear back far, to obtain pain on naked skin. The Plunge Paddle isn’t heavy, at 7.7 oz (Jenna over at Tantus checked for me). It isn’t something to be taken lightly though. The pad of the paddle is somewhat floppy. So when you swing it, it comes forward and adds to the smack. I was able to get a few swings in, on my husband. He wasn’t all that thrilled by the idea, but when I told him I was reviewing it, he dropped trou. After a few light swings, his skin turned pink and started to swell. The same happened to me, when it was my turn. I was only able to handle about 4 medium taps before I had to take a break. After that, he did swing it harder, and as he did, it was harder to bear.
Now for the dildo end of the Plunge Paddle. It’s useless. SORRY TANTUS! I appreciate the offer, I really do. It just doesn’t work for my vagina. It’s not that I can’t/don’t get off with narrow toys. I do. The Acute? Successful. Every time. The Plunge just doesn’t have the angle that I need. It’s as though it starts to, but it’s cut short. For the paddle’s functionality, I’m grateful it’s short. For the dildo side? Yawn. Holding it on the paddle end, to use the dildo end is extremely awkward. I had to try a few different grips before I was able to comfortably hold it, and I was still left underwhelmed. The dildo as a handle is great though. It makes it extremely comfortable to hold. Whether you want to hold it with a tight grip, or lazily hold it by the ball, in between your fingers.
Here are the Plunge Paddle’s measurements:

It’s made of 100% ultra-premium silicone. Which means if you’re into blood play and have trouble finding a paddle that you can sterilize, this may be the paddle for you. If it’s not your style, Tantus has other designs available, made from the same silicone. The silicone is a smooth matte finish that has some drag to it, and is a bit of a lint magnet. It collects it to a certain extent, and then stops. I can wipe it down with a towel after cleaning it, with minimal amount of fuzz on it. The packaging the Plunge Paddle came in was minimal to say the least. The Paddle comes with this tag, an opaque silicone tag with Tantus’ name on it, tied to the Paddle with a plastic tie.
Overall, I love having the Plunge Paddle for a paddle. As a dildo, I won’t be using it again. The shape doesn’t work for me, and the hole in the end collects whatever is in my vagina at the time. Like I said, though, I do love it as a paddle. I can get a harsh sting, if I focus on connecting with the tip of the paddle. Or I can get a strong thud when I connect with the entire paddle. It’s versatile with the types of pain, but one thing is for sure. This fucker hurts.
Thank you Tantus for sending me the Plunge Paddle, in exchange for my fair and honest review!
