Vampire gloves are a tool used by some couples during BDSM play. These distinctive gloves have small metal spikes or tacks set into their palms and/or fingers. These spikes help enhance the feelings of sensation and percussion play.
Most vampire gloves are wrist-length and made of leather. Vegan versions also exist.
Vampire gloves are often called vampire mitts or spanking gloves. However, some products marketed as spanking gloves are not covered in such distinctive spikes.
