The 50 Shades Darker No Bounds Collection Paddle is a part of Lovehoney’s line of sex toys inspired by E.L. James’s infamous series. You’ve probably seen the little trailer that was posted on the internet not too long ago.
Honestly, I haven’t read the books, nor have I seen the movie. The only erotica series that I’ve ever read has been The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty series by A.N. Roquelaure. You also might know her as Anne Rice. She made that small book series called “The Vampire Chronicles”, in case you didn’t know.
Okay, the sarcasm is turning off now.
Anyways, so that’s the only erotica series I’ve ever read. And despite how a lot of people give the 50 Shades series a ton of shit, I’m not gonna use this post to promote any negativity. Not because I love the series, because as I said, I haven’t read it yet, but don’t hate on something you haven’t read/seen for yourself yet.
Also, after watching one of [Sunny Megatron’s] videos discussing the impact of 50 Shades of Grey, I somewhat have a little bit of respect for the series and it’s impact on our culture’s openness with sexuality and kink.
Also, the 50 Shades of Grey sex toys looked fucking badass.
And after using this paddle, I have to say that this is a pretty badass tool too.

The 50 Shades Darker No Bounds Collection Paddle comes in this beautiful black velvet storage pouch with the words “50 Shades Darker” embroidered on the lower right corner of the flap.
I guess it’s embroidered, I’m not quite sure which technique they used to get it on there. Derp.
- There are two different textures on both sides of the paddle: 1- smooth leather, 2- soft suede
- This paddle has a nice little strap that you can wrap around your wrist; no one wants to drop their paddle while giving a good wallop
- I just like the classy aesthetic; that’s one thing I love about the 50 shades sex toys and this is no exception
- This toy is also very firm and steady, which makes it easier to control
- Since this paddle isn’t made out of a material I’m used to dealing with (such as silicone), this might require a bit more maintenance; I’ll have to do some research on what is good for cleaning leather and suede
- The leather side of the paddle provides more crisp stings
- Whenever I use the suede side, the sting seems more “muted”; in other words, each strike is more on the “thuddy” side, not as crisp/sharp as strikes with the leather side
Overall OpinionOut of all the paddles I’ve tried so far (and believe me, that’s not many), I have to say that this might just be my favorite.
Unlike other paddles I’ve used, I’m not stuck with just stinging or thudding sensations. I can choose either, depending on the mood I’m in. I do like to start out with the leather side, then switch it after a series of quick thwacks.
When my skin is sensitive enough, I’ll switch to the suede side of the paddle, which will provide me with enough thwack, but not to the point where it’s overwhelming. I can hit the paddle against my skin a number of times before I feel that I have to call it quits, which is freaking awesome.
Overall, I think this paddle would be perfect for people looking for high-quality impact-play toys. If you’re looking for something that will deliver on both the “thud” and “sting” sides of the sensation spectrum, then I would definitely check this one out.
Special thanks goes to the people at Lovehoney.
