Sometimes, kink toys have a deceptive simplicity. A small toy that’s functional and versatile can yield wonderful, sexy moments when used properly. This axiom certainly describes THE CLAW from MEO, which Ms.Pomegranate and I recently tried out.
A word about sharps and sensation play
Sharp and pointy sensation toys tend to fall into one of two categories. Either they are mild and not very pointy, or they are severe enough to be considered as edge play. The trick is to find a sensation toy that strikes a balance of being sharp enough to elicit reactions from your bottom, yet not too sharp to elevate the intensity of a scene too high. I tend to like toys that are versatile and I suspected THE CLAW may work well for that purpose. Ms.Pomegranate wanted to experience a sensation scene on a recent outing to our local playspace and gave me a great opportunity to test THE CLAW.
Construction and Utility
As stated, THE CLAW is all about simplicity. It’s two steel points connected by two rings. The construction is stainless steel which is polished smooth, with good welds. There are no jagged edges, which speaks to the quality we’ve come to expect from MEO. The rings allow you to place THE CLAW on your finger and use it almost as an extension of your digit. The actual claw points are curved slightly, to make manipulating them a bit easier. It isn’t too long, so it’s not unwieldy. A user can wear only one, or wear more, turning the entire hand into a sensation toy. At a price point of $27.00, it’s easy to own several, comparable to the price of a quality vampire glove.
I was happy to discover that THE CLAW was made from stainless steel, which means it can be disinfected properly. The steel construction also means there’s no chrome to chip away and degrade the toy. For any type of abrasion gear, being body safe is a must, THE CLAW certainly meets this criteria.
THE CLAW falls into the parameters I described earlier. It’s sharp enough to be severe and sadistic, yet subtle enough to be used in lighter sensation scenes. Used on one finger, it’s a precise instrument. On multiple fingers, THE CLAW is a savage scratching tool. One safety note, this is an abrasion toy designed for dragging or pulling motions. Don’t try pushing THE CLAW, you will puncture the skin. (Although pressing with the curve of the claws will create delicious pressure for your bottom).
There are two different ring sizes available. I wore the larger size and it accommodated my fingers well, which was nice since I have large digits. I didn’t try THE CLAW on my pinkie, since I felt using it that way would be a tad awkward. The toy was secure without being tight.
Getting to the point
With Ms.P blindfolded and ready, I started our scene. I placed a CLAW, on the index finger of each hand and began to make broad strokes on my partner’s breasts, shoulders and tummy. The learning curve is fairly easy for THE CLAW, to the degree that I felt comfortable scratching my partner’s upper chest and her neck. Since this was the prelude to a sensual sensation play, I kept my stroke light, since I just wanted Ms.P’s skin to become flushed and and warmed up.
I moved on to teasing Ms.P’s inner thighs in the same fashion I had her breasts. As I neared the end of our warm up I used a single CLAW to gently caress her labia, which elicited a smile from my partner. (As always, my partner’s smile and her directions are my indication that I’m doing the right things). It’s a testament to the smoothness of THE CLAW’S stainless steel construction that when used on Ms.Pomegranate’s most intimate parts, she didn’t have to worry about unpleasant, jagged strokes.
For a final bit of sensation, I placed two CLAWS on the fingers of one hand and gave broad, final strokes once again to Ms.P’s thighs and breasts, although this time I stayed clear of intimate areas. She was well warmed up for the sensation I provided with my hands, and the following scene was incredibly enjoyable.
THE CLAW is another quality offering from MEO. It combines versatility and quality into an affordable package. It meets the criteria of being body safe and falls within a price point that makes it a must have for a kinkster’s toybag. THE CLAW allows users to offer a heavy dose of sadism while affording the dexterity necessary for intimate sensation work.
Have a perverted itch that needs to be scratched? Try THE CLAW and keep it kinky (Pun intended).
