I thought it would be fun to create a series of mini-reviews featuring some of the more niche and unusual kink items I’ve tried. Today we’re looking at the Dominix Deluxe Cat Claw Skin Stratcher, which was kindly sent to me by the good folks at Lovehoney.
Cat Claw Skin Scratcher
The Cat Claw Skin Scratcher is a sensation play toy from the Dominix range. It is worn on any finger and held in place by two ring loops, and features two sharp scratchy “claws.”
The Cat Claw Skin Scratcher is made of metal and covered in a matte black, tarnish-free powder coating. The look is simple yet sexy, and the Scratcher will fit most fingers. (It’s actually a bit big for me, but my hands are unusually small for a woman of my size!)
What is Sensation Play?
Sensation play is exactly what it sounds like: playing with sensations in a kinky or sexual context. Sensation play can involve playing with pain, but it absolutely doesn’t have to. It can be erotic, soothing, intense, gentle… almost anything you want it to be!
I love sensation play both for its own sake, and as a precursor or add-on to other kinky activities. Sensation play pairs well with bondage and restraint, and can also be a way for
Remember that sensation play can be surprisingly intense. It’s important to check in regularly with your partner and ensure ongoing, enthusiastic consent.
So How Does the Cat Claw Skin Scratcher Feel?
I wasn’t sure what to expect from this scratcher when I requested it for review. It is surprisingly sharp! Just like a real kitty claw, it could absolutely draw blood if you’re not careful.
(I don’t recommend drawing blood deliberately. If you absolutely must, at least practice good hygiene and ensure your Scratcher is sterile.)
I’m pretty into the feeling of being (gently) scratched. Whether it’s a lover’s fingernails or a Wartenberg wheel, something about it is very erotic to me. So I love the feeling of the Cat Claw Skin Scratcher. It’s less stingy-intense than a pinwheel, but a step up from scratching with just nails.
Non-kinky bonus: if I get an itch on my back, it’s great for scratching those hard-to-reach spots!
Where is it Safe to Scratch?
Most places, if you’re careful! Upper backs, butts, thighs, and other muscular or fleshy areas are always good. Breasts and genitals are probably okay if you’re careful. Don’t scratch on or near the face, and be very cautious around joints and bony areas.
