Tawses (pronounced taws) were used as corporal punishment in public schools in Scotland until 1987. The impact of the standard leather tawse can be very intense; even more so in Silicone. The Poly Tawse four tongues, each 3/8 inces thick, 8.5 inches in length. The density is intense. Because it’s Silicone, it transmits energy very effectively and takes very little in terms of strike force. The handle (1.5 inches by 6 inches) is very effective for blunt impact play and as a potential heavily textured dildo for internal use. And, because the Poly Tawse is made from Silicone you can thoroughly cleanse the toy. With a little care, the poly tawse will last a lifetime. Made from a unique formula of 100% Ultra-Premium Silicone. Handle Diameter: 1.48 inches. Tongue Length: 8.75 inches.
