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 Tantus Silicone. Trip 2 Tawse features two very broad tongues, each 1.5 inches in width, 10 inches in length: this allows for long, broad strokes. Because it‚Äôs Tantus Silicone, it transmits energy very effectively and takes very little in terms of strike force. The handle is also very effective for blunt impact play and as a potential heavily textured dildo for internal use. Tantus Silicone also allows you to thoroughly cleanse the toy hygienically.
