While I’m not a huge kinkster, I do enjoy experimenting with new tools and sensations. I have heard a ton of good things about Whartenberg wheels over the years, so I figured it couldn’t hurt to give one a spin.
This device has actually been appropriated by the kink community from Dr. Robert Whartenberg, who invented it to test nerve responses on the skin. While this isn’t the first and it won’t be the last time a group borrows from the medical community to satisfy their own desires, I think it’s good to know the tool’s origins.
The Whartenberg Pinwheel is a seven inch metal wand that a spiked wheel at one end that measures a little less than an inch in diameter. It works exactly like a pizza cutter and while that may not sound very sexy, it’s the best way to describe how to use it! Running the wheel all over your partner is a fantastic way to tease and torture them. Just try to keep your hands behind your head while this thing slowly moves up your sensitive inner thigh…
One thing I think is nice about this tool is that it’s good for people just experimenting with kink and dedicated Doms. When pressed lightly against the skin, it provides the most delicious tingly sensation, but it also works for those of you looking for a little pain. I’m not so much into it, but I did some “testing” using a lot of pressure and found myself a bit intrigued by the results. While I’m sure this could inflict some damage, I used a lot of pressure without unbearable pain or any fear of breaking the skin.
For under twenty bucks, the Whartenberg Pinwheel is a tool that I recommend for anyone who’s the bit curious. Whether you’re looking to push your lover to the edge or just hoping to kink up foreplay a bit, it’s a pretty rad item.
Ps. It’s also good as a back scratcher if you’re the kind of perv who leaves sex toys lying around on their desk for a week.
