Every CP enthusiast knows that genuine canes, at least as far as British fetish is concerned, are rattan – be that either Dragon cane (rattan soaked in oil) or normal rattan.
But what about other type of canes?
I have recently had some people enquiring about lighter and easier to take varieties such as bamboo canes (empty inside so it stands to reason they would be lighter and most likely easier to take). The primary purpose for these canes is gardening, but I’m sure together we can give them a much more interesting life!
The bamboo canes do feel lighter than standard rattan canes, but they are less flexible so sadly the lovely swishing noise is greatly reduced.
I know that those of you who have fetish for authenticity or harsher punishment will not see the appeal of bamboo canes – no worries I’m still very well equipped with traditional canes – but I think they might be an interesting solution for those who find real canes too much or look for a gentler introduction to caning. Hopefully, they will work well as a reasonably authentic substitute in such cases.
They are also seem quite good for bastinado and punishments of other, more sensitive, body parts like thighs, where rattan canes sometimes prove too sharp.
There are different thicknesses available, ranging from about 6mm to 9mm.
Now…who do I try them on?
