Luxurious Bliss Leather Bat – Sex Toy Review
For whatever reason, I don’t do a lot of impact play. It’s not because I dislike it, I think it might be because I am terminally lazy. I kind of want to just lay back and wait for the orgasm with minimal effort on my part. I’m honestly surprised my sexual partners put up with me, seriously… I make them do all the work (have I watched Netflix while my partner works furiously at giving me an orgasm, yes, yes I have) … I simply am the worst person (but I won’t apologize for it, because hey, I gotta be me). But I can admit it, so that makes it okay. I’m a sexual Queen who deserves tribute in the form of orgasms. Many, many Orgasms.
But, you know what? It is pretty darn amazing what the right accessory will do to a person. There is that quote floating around on just about every lady’s Pinterest board that goes something like “give a girl the right shoes and she can conquer the world.” Well… give a person the right impact toy and they can…uh… conquer… many butts? I don’t know, my thoughts kind of fell apart somewhere in the middle there… but you get what I’m saying? Right? As soon as I picked up the Luxurious Bliss Leather Bat I was ready for some serious spanking action (also, having lived in Kentucky I also momentarily fantasized about being a race horse jockey at the Kentucky Derby)! Holding this beautiful leather crop brought out the inner Domme in me and I was ready to be fierce.
When Luxurious Bliss contacted me, offering me one of their leather items, I was pretty stoked. I had been on the look out for some more BDSM type items to add to my collection, so their email seemed rather fortuitous and I quickly asked for them to send the Leather Bat my way. Since Luxurious Bliss is a new to me company (and likely knew to you as well) let me do a quick run down on who they are and what they do, because I like to know who/where my sex toys are coming from! So, Luxurious Bliss is a Canadian owned and operated company that produces a collection of quality leather, wood, and lace products. According to the email I received from them, items are made in house, so that is pretty cool! I am only a hop, skip and a jump away from being in Canada…so this is almost like shopping local for me. Hooray Canada!
The Luxurious Bliss Leather Bat looks pretty much what you would expect a riding crop type spanking implement to look like. The shaft of the toy is about 20 inches long and is wrapped in a thin braided cord material and is somewhat flexible, the handle is black and feels like rubber while the bottom ‘swatting’ portion is fashioned from 1.5 inch piece of black leather. The entire toy is incredibly well made! With similar yet cheaper crops I have run into fraying or unraveling of the shaft material or glue coming loose around the handle, but even though I spent a lot of time looking for flaws and attempting to pick and pull apart the materials of the Luxurious Bliss Leather Bat everything held fast and strong!
Compared to the last impact toy I reviewed, the MEO HurtMe Deluxe, the Luxurious Bliss Leather Bat is so much more chill, I am far less intimidated by this swatter than I was of the HurtMe Deluxe (I mean… even that name is a little bit terrifying, isn’t it?). Crop in hand, it made me feel more like a Femme Fatale, a mysterious, seductive Domme something the HurtMe Deluxe did not quite do. Which just shows, the style of an impact toy can really change the mood and character or a scene/play time!
Personally, I am not the biggest fan of heavier impact play, I don’t mind a swat or spank now and again but the big walloping impact toys give me some pause… so to me, the Luxurious Bliss Leather Bat is nearly perfect. I very much prefer sexy sensation experiences over straight up pain, give me a tickle and light swat or a firm spank over a butt beating any day! Don’t get me wrong though, in the right hands, this toy can really pack a wallop. It is truly a versatile toy, build up your partners anticipation by running it lightly over their body, use the shaft of the toy to caress the inner thighs, get the blood (and other juices) flowing with some gentle tapping then cap it all off with a firm thwack and a snapping sting! Oh, what fun! And wielding this toy is a dream! The shorter shaft size and grippy handle make it easy to give carefully aimed, precision swats. I can discipline with just the leather flapper or make contact with a bit of the shaft as well if I want to leave more of a welt. It is also very light weight making it easy to hold and swing for longer periods of time.
Another thing I really like about the Luxurious Bliss Leather Bat is the color. If you take a look around you are bound to notice that the current BDSM market relies pretty heavily on one color scheme… black. Black leather, black rubber, black latex… if you are lucky maybe you’ll find a little red or white thrown in for contrast, but for the most part… if you are at all into the BDSM scene, I hope you like the color black. So when I saw that Luxurious Bliss was making a riding crop in purple (which is a color that is one of my favorites and totally on brand for me) I pretty much flipped my ever lovin’ shit. I was so excited to have an impact toy with a fun pop of color!

It is also possible to pick up the Luxurious Bliss Leather Bat in the BDSM standard black, but you can also find it in red, green, blue and of course the already mentioned (and pictured in this review) purple. Love it.
I have only one complaint about the Luxurious Bliss Leather Bat… just one… and that is I wish the handle of the toy came with either a loop or a hole for me to add a loop too so I could both hang the toy up when not in use, but also keep it attached to my wrist while playing. This is totally a minor thing though… and really doesn’t change the quality of the toy or affect my enjoyment of the toy at all. Over all this is a truly solid toy, well done Luxurious Bliss, give yourselves a pat on the back (or a swat on the butt)!
So, if you are in the market for a new impact toy, I really can’t say enough good things about the Luxurious Bliss Leather Bat, not only is it a quality toy, but the price is pretty attractive as well. At about $20.00 (USD) this toy sits perfectly within my budget, it’s nice to know that a person can find quality BDSM toys without breaking the proverbial bank. If you are looking for a less intimidating impact toy that is still versatile enough to leave pretty purple bruises I can definitely recommend the Luxurious Bliss Leather Bat.
