A ping-pong paddle is made of a thin board of wood, covered on both sides with a layer of foam and rubber with a textured surface. The total length, including handle, is about 10 inches (25 cm). The round hitting surface is approximately 6 inches (15 cm) in diameter.
Some people remove the rubber layer for spanking, while others use the paddle as it is. Most manufacturers of BDSM equipment produce a spanking implement based on the ping-pong paddle that is covered in black leather.
Jack Nicholson is said to own one and loves to spank women with it.
Several spanking videos have used ping-pong paddles during scenes of corporal punishment.
