"Screeching at your own ass is a valid strategy!"
This spoopy "My neck, my back, my anxiety attack" pounder is around 36cm long, and 269 grams of nice, and is made from ethically sourced plantation pine timber. This particular beastie is a lovely purple with a pink handle, and has been decorated with the words "My neck, my back, my anxiety attack" in black with a white outline. To the right of the text, a hand-illustrated pair of skelletons dance about, bones have been added along the bottom of the text and diamantes have been accented throughout!
While a lot of my paddles are sassy, snarky or tongue-in-cheek, I'm a firm believer in the power of education and change through conversations about lived experiences, and helping others realise they're not alone. Humour has always been a coping mechanism of mine, and I've struggled with anxiety and depression for close to two decades, so I feel like I have a responsibility to start the conversation about mental health, how to get help, how to recognise it, and finding a sense of solidarity between those that experience it - also while been a little cheeky. You'll occasionally see paddles like this pop up in my store, where they poke fun at experiences, not people, and this is why. I never create designs that I don't personally have experience with when it comes to this style of humour, because I firmly believe that having that lived experience is the difference between laughing at the thing that impacts us (or having a laugh at myself), rather than laughing at someone impacted by it. Normalising the discussion around mental health is the first step in making sure people know there is help out there, and that it's okay to not be okay.
Small and unassuming, but holy bajoly will this little punk pack a punch! Pounders feature a wide grip handle for ease of use, are lightweight and comfortable for long-term swinging. Their impact tends to be a much broader thumpy sensation when comapared to the thinner Diddle Sticks, and is good for those who prefer thuddy to stingy sensations. They make a good intro to impact play due to their more 'entry friendly' sensations, and control offered to the user.
This item is a hand-illlustrated custom design. Subsequent productions of this item may differ slightly in appearance from the picture above as a result of the creation process. As a hand made item, there are minor imperfections, scuffs and bumps, as pictured.
