Definition - What does Buck Hammer mean?

A buck hammer is a medical tool used to test myotatic and cutaneous reflexes. Buck hammers are typically used by medical professionals evaluating patients. They are also commonly used by couples who enjoy medical play, especially members of the BDSM community.

A buck hammer may also be known as a buck percussion hammer.

Kinkly explains Buck Hammer

Buck hammers are typically made of surgical steel. Each side of the hammer’s head is usually tipped with rubber for the comfort of patients or submissives.When used for sexual pleasure, buck hammers are a useful tool for sensory exploration and percussion or impact play during medical role play.

“Patients” may be blindfolded to enhance the sensations created by the buck hammer. While the person playing the doctor or nurse may use the buck hammer to strike the knee, as a doctor would, they may also use the hammer to touch, caress, or strike any part of the patient’s body. Using the buck hammer on erogenous zones like the buttocks, thighs, upper back, and calves is particularly effective. You could even use a buck hammer on the genitals or breasts, so long as you didn’t apply too much force.

As buck hammers are typically used externally, they need very little maintenance. However, they can be cleaned with antibacterial dish soap and rubbing alcohol.
