Fifty Shades Darker Adrenaline Spikes pinwheel 

Prickly business

Sensation play is a kink I’m quite keen on, as both a receiver and a giver. I’m no ‘pain slut’ but I appreciate mild pain as going hand in hand with pleasure. Having tried a pinwheel before and feeling somewhat disappointed by its lack of bite, I decided to try the Fifty Shades Darker Adrenaline Spikes.

My spiny wheel of torturous delight was swiftly dispatched from Orgasmic UK, a company I have used a couple of times. They don’t have an affiliate scheme, but I’m hoping they will start one up, as they do some really good deals on Fun Factory toys, which aren’t necessarily the cheapest toys. 

The Fifty Shades Adrenaline Spikes pinwheel arrived in the black and dark midnight blue slimline cardboard box, with a silky drawstring bag and instruction leaflet. The pinwheel itself is made from nickel-free metal, with a 5 1/2 inch handle, which has three deep horizontal grooves along the front and back from the outer edge and into the first 3 inches of the handle. The head of the wheel has the Fifty Shades DARKER logo embossed on it. 


There are 22 spikes radiating out from the head. Touching the tip of a spike is reminiscent of a nail, poised and ready to pierce. Normal contact pressure however will not damage skin. It does deliver tingles across the flesh as it is drawn along limbs and torsos. Figure of eight patterns are pleasing to have traced upon the skin with this wheel. There is the hint of an edgy bite to this wheel, but it is subtle and enticing. 

As a prelude to more intense sensation play such as wax play or harder impact play, the Adrenaline Spikes offers a titilating experience. You will want more of the same, and with such a striking instrument of pleasure, it would be rude not to! 

The Fifty Shades Adrenaline Spikes Pinwheel is currently on sale for £13 at Orgasmic.
