Mmm, there's something about leather that really just flat does it for me. The smell of the supple material, the sound of it slicing through the air, the jingle of the buckle as he takes it off, the way it sounds as it strikes the flesh. It just sends shivers up my spine. It is by far my favorite spanking implement. I have to admit that the belt is my absolute favorite, but the strap, tawse, crop, and leather paddle also have a place near and dear to my heart.
