Beginner's Guide To Wartenberg Pinwheels

Every BDSM tool bag is likely to involve this lovely yet formidable tool. The Wartenberg pinwheel was invented for medical purposes, but like every single medical fetish toy, it found its way into the bedroom scene. Starting off with the Wartenberg wheel requires that you focus on the safety measures that ensure you have an easy time without the inconvenient and often preventable consequences.

Beginner's Guide To Wartenberg Pinwheels


Although it is an essentially inexpensive toy there are those who cannot help but share the toy. If you have multiple partners ensure that you sanitize the toy before use by either using an antibacterial toy cleaner and/or alcohol swabs.

If you think any blood is going to be drawn, always ensure that you take the necessary measures to ensure that you protect you and your partner against blood borne diseases.

Wartenberg Pinwheel Design

The Wartenberg Pinwheel has a simple yet effective design. The front of the toy consists of a wheel whose surface is lined with spikes. These sharp spikes are evenly spaced all around the wheel to ensure that the pressure exerted is uniformly felt.

Attached to the wheel is an ergonomic handle, ensuring that the pinwheel comfortably fits in the hand for an easy execution of the intended pain or pleasure. Pinwheels differ by the number of wheels and the length of the spikes.

With a single pinwheel, you get a more concentrated sensation as the surface area covered by the wheel is minimal. With the multiple wheel pinwheel, the surface are covered is greater, making the play span a wider area. This ensures the pain is felt at a higher level on a bigger area.

When it comes to the material composition of the Wartenberg Pinwheel, always ensure to carefully check the exact material. Most Wartenberg Pinwheels are made of stainless steel, making them easy to maintain and keep sterile. However, some of the Wartenber Pinwheels are actually made of chrome plated iron. These look like the stainless steel pinwheels when they are new and may be different to differentiate.

The chrome plated Wartenberg pinwheels are likely to rust over time, so always check them carefully before every session to ensure that you do not unnecessarily cause your partner harm.

There are also plastic Wartenberg Pinwheels. The material does not make them any less formidable. To make them even better, they come in a variety of colors. This versatility allows you to collect them and match them to the outfit of the day or session.

Using a Wartenberg Pinwheel

The greatest part about the pinwheel is the way the wheel freely rolls. Use this ease of movement to roll the pinwheel over every part of the body as you so desire. The multiple pressure points provide a tingling sensation over every part of the skin the pinwheel rolls over. Whether it is the back, neck, thighs, breasts or butt, your partner will feel every single sensation, depending on the applied pressure.

For those looking for a soft and pleasurable experience, little or no pressure is required when rolling the wheel against the skin. If you are looking for a bit of pain with the session, increase the applied pressure and this will have your partner duly reacting to every pressure as the spikes hit the skin.

The diversity of the Wartenberg pinwheel spans into the electro stimulation scene. To make the electro stimulation session even more interesting, the tiny pinwheel spikes are duly used to deliver sharp and concentrated sensations wherever they are placed. Some pinwheels are designed specifically for the purpose of electro stimulation. With these Wartenberg Pinwheels, the handle is fitted with a socket that you connect to your favorite power box. If you have a violet wand or a body contact, use these with the pinwheel to deliver the stimulations as you desire.


Likely to cause itching; always ensure that you have an anti-itch cream on hand to help alleviate the itch by applying it on the intended area. If there is any blood drawn, make sure to clean the area and wipe with a swab to prevent any infections. Furthermore, sanitize the pinwheel to ensure that the blood is thoroughly cleaned up and the toy is safe.
