I was completely intrigued by this toy, so I thought I'd find out a little more about it.
Apparently this is classified as a "medical play" toy. I had no idea. So I looked up a little more information, and it is actually a medical device, used to test nerve reactions. Huh.
I have to admit, though, I was pretty intrigued to try it out for myself. :)
It's what you might call "deliciously pokey".

The pinwheel is pretty sharp, sharper than I thought they would be. On the Stockroom site, it says it won't puncture skin unless excessive pressure is used. I'd say that's accurate, although I have a propensity for painful stimuli and I could see myself pushing the envelope a little bit.
But if you were to push really hard, you could seriously hurt someone. So a gentle touch and using with care is absolutely recommended.
Rolling it across my own skin was pleasant and fun. I'm intrigued with the idea of using it with a blindfold as well. Not exactly knowing what's going to happen next is a turn-on for me. I tried it out on my boyfriend, and it seemed to affect him in a shivery sort of way. I'd kind of like to roll it over ticklish areas... that might be really hot.
Look, it made me smile! I say that's a good thing.
The pinwheel is reasonably priced, and pretty sturdy. It's all solid metal with the exception of the wheel and the one screw that holds it in.
Another bonus is I imagine you could take the screw and pinwheel out for easy cleaning, should it turn you on so much that you cum all over it with wild abandon. And if that happens, you had better send me pictures!
The hits: Well-made, inexpensive and delightfully prickly. A great way to explore new sensations and experiences with like-minded sex partners.
The misses: It's not for everyone. It doesn't hurt but it is quite intense, and might be too much for some people to handle.
Final grade: A
I'd definitely recommend this as an addition to any good slut's arsenal of BDSM devices.
I'd consider this a nice starter device for people who are interested in trying out a little bit of pain with their pleasure. :)
