Cat Claw Review
By Carnal Queen.
Raindrops on bodies and whispers on neck flesh
Long sensuous massage and curves worn in black mesh
Bright coloured sex toys and all the fun that that brings
These are a few of my favorite things …
And now you can add this cat claw from Affordable Leather to that list too!
I’ve lusted after a cat claw skin scratcher for what feels like forever, but I’ve never got around to getting one. So when I was asked what I’d like to review from Affordable Leather, and I spotted this on their website, I was delighted. It was a no-brainer … a cat claw would finally be mine!
Affordable Leather are a UK company, based in Hampshire. As the name suggests, they specialise in affordable leather goods, but their website is full of scrumptious bondage goodies. So if you’re in the market for some new BDSM gear, from beginner right up to the more advanced, be sure to check them out!
The cat claw arrives wrapped simply in protective packaging, no fuss, and no over the top wrap to dispose of either, which is fab. I was only interested in the claw anyway! You can get these claws in four sizes from Affordable Leather, which is something not all retailers of these scratchers offer. The measurements are all listed on their website, but to be honest, it’s not something that has to be exact. The recommendation is to go for a claw which is a little bigger than you need, so we went for the XL (22.1mm/size Z &1/2). Because of the double ring design, you can keep a hold of it by just bending your finger slightly. We decided the biggest size meant we could both wear it, and on whatever digit too.
Scratch Me Please
I couldn’t wait to try this, and within moments of it being unwrapped, it was on CK’s finger and beginning its maiden voyage across my skin. It was love at first touch. It’s such a simple thing, but it’s beautiful and I wouldn’t be without it now.
I adore touch, of the right kind … always have, always will. One of my favourite things in the world is to be tickled – no, not ha ha tickling, sensual, soft tickling. The cat claw adds a whole new dimension to this kind of sensory play, and I’m hooked.
For me, tickles go one of two ways. Sometimes they lead to sex, because my skin is alive and my arousal is undeniable. Other times, I completely zone out and they send me to sleep. It relaxes me so much, and off to the land of nod I go. The cat claw now ensures they only ever go one way – because I find it so erotic and there’s no way I’m drifting off during a session!
No Pain, Just Gain
You’d be forgiven for assuming that these cat claws are just scratchy and ouchy – they look sharp and pointy, after all. But that really isn’t the case. The versatility surprised me actually, they offer more than just one type of sensation.
CK can control how much I’m aware of. With ordinary, finger only tickles, I can sense where he’s about to touch on my body. Even if I can’t see what he’s doing, I can detect his body heat. Wearing the cat claw, and holding his other fingers back in a fist, I’m left wondering. There are no tell-tale feelings of warmth. On the flip side, if he relaxes his other fingers, I can still catch glimpses of heat, which can really add to the anticipation and build. Which is one of the things I love about this kind of contact.
Sometimes, he even allows his other fingers on the same hand to run across my skin at the same time. The soft, gentle caresses in contrast to the harder, more definite stimulation messes with my head, in totally a good way. It doesn’t hurt, it’s not sharp, BUT IT COULD BE, and just knowing that gets me buzzing.
I think that’s the appeal for me with this cat claw. Used gently, it feels lovely and I do find the sensations relaxing. I was addicted to drawing around my fingers with a pen as a child, and nothing has changed. Anything being trailed across my skin feels lovely. But it does have pointy-ish tips, and it can scratch a little and be sharp, if pressure is applied.
Because the tips are chamfered, a down stroke moves quite smoothly, but upward strokes can catch more. It’s delicious! It keeps me on edge, and I really do love to be there.
Be nice, be mean … the choice is yours. Use it on the back and arms, on the legs and thighs, across the feet … nipple play feels fabulous, as does genital stimulation. I don’t think you’ll ever get bored, I know I certainly won’t.
I love how my skin feels hyper sensitive after we’ve used this. It seems to heighten my senses, and I get more benefit from anything else we go on to do.
A simple piece, that’s sturdy, well made, comfortable to wear in use, and a total bargain. If you enjoy any form of skin play, I think you deserve to treat yourself, because this has become a little kit essential for us, that will never be far from reach.
