Flogging is different from spanking, it’s not as sharp and the sensation is different thanks to the tails of the flogger, you can customize the type of flogging you’re going to deliver, soft and tantalizing or sharp and rememberable. There’s also an art to flogging, being able to tease someone with the device is something that isn’t as easy as it looks, it can be very arousing if done properly which if you learn your tools, you can master.
What Is A Flogger?
A flogger’s definition can’t actually vary tremendously, it’s all dependent on the type of flogger you buy but in general, on a whole, a flogger has a rigid handle and several tails (fronds) that are attached to this handle. Holding the handle you can use the tails to flog and whip your partner. Most people enjoy the flogger on their ass but some like to use across their legs, breasts, genitals, back, and chest. The sensation of a flogger is erotic, the sharp sting sends some people into a horny frenzy, some people like it soft, some like it hard and some like a surprise, it’s all dependent on the person.
The Best Floggers I’ve Ever Used
As always I didn’t want you to now go searching frantically and stumbling across floggers that just aren’t up to scratch. I have tried and tested my floggers and by now I can pluck out a bad sex toy among the bunch and so below I have included all my favorite floggers and some information on them so that you can be sure that you’re buying something that you will actually enjoy.
My Fav Rubber Flogger
The rubber fronds on this rubber flogger make it ideal for beginners and even more experienced flogging connoisseurs. As a beginner, the rubber fronds are softer than the traditional material, they give you a soft yet satisfying prick. Something else I love about this flogger is that it’s not massive so it’s easy to store or even travel with, it’s also not too ‘in your face’ like some sex toys, it’s a humble sex toy with an incredible tantalizing secret.
Dildo Flogger (A Teasers Dream)
If you like getting your money worth this glass dildo flogger is ideal. One end of this flogger is a temperature-responsive dildo that will invigorate your senses once submerged in warm water or popped in the freezer, use your new dildo internally or even externally and revel in new sensations. Once you’re ready to play with your flogger, tease and spank your partner however you wish.
Beginner Paracord Flogger
The faux leather material of this flogger is invigorating, it oozes sadism and erotic adventures. It’s smaller than the others we have seen, making it easier to control and pin-point locations on your partner’s body that you wish to flog. The faux leather handle allows you to really grip the handle and control those spanks, whether you want to keep it soft and slow making your partner’s body more sensitive or whether you want to make it sharp and hard, it’s easy to do whatever you wish.
The Best Leather Flogger I’ve Tested
With 9-inch tails (fronds) this faux-leather flogger is popular amongst all types of flogging experts. Using faux-leather isn’t just for the conscious among us, it’s also for those who can’t be bothered with the upkeep of real leather, this stuff looks and feels like the real thing. The textured 6-inch handle gives you plenty of grips and allows you to really experiment with your lashings and allowing you to control your speed and force.
Silicone BDSM Flogger
Made from 100% silicone this flogger features 4 silicone fronds with bulbous weighted tips to really deliver quivering sensations. This isn’t the best bit, the handle is also insertable, the shape is perfect for those who want some internal stimulation as well as some flogging stimulation. It’s a little different than my other floggers but the premise is the same, it just doubles up as a dildo!
How To Flog Someone
It’s not hard to learn how to flog however I do believe there is a slight art to it that must be mastered in order to be an exquisite professional at flogging. I have listed some tips below that will help you on your way to becoming a master of flogging, just remember practice makes perfect.
- Have a safe word – It’s very important to have a safe word, I have seen people not have one and things can get ugly fast, which totally spoils the mood and usually puts you both off for life. Having a safe word is super easy, pick a random word, any word, for example, ‘pink’ and when you or your partner has had enough of flogging or any sexual experimentation you may be embarking on your immediately stop. Some people like to have two words, for example, amber meaning ‘it hurts so slow down a little’ and red for ‘stop that hurts’. Having two gives your partner a chance to correct what they’re doing without ruining the mood.
- Warm up the part you want to flog – If you’re new to flogging it’s a good idea to make sure you get yourself and your partner wet and/or hard before flogging. Really set the mood and bring to life the area you are planning to spank, for instance, if you want to flog their ass play with their butt and get the area sensitive and excited, it makes things much more fun and gets you both nice and horny before liftoff.
- Run the flogger over your partner’s body (make them tingle) – Flogging isn’t all about spanking your partner, you can use the fronds to tickle and tease them too. The sensations are electrifying if the area is nice and sensitive and it builds anticipation as to what is to come. Running the fronds over the bare body and gently stroking them with the fronds feels amazing and really sets the tone for me.
- Start gentle and build-up – It’s true, don’t go straight in for the kill, especially if you’re not used to flogging or spanking in general and if your partner isn’t used to it. It’s a bad idea, instead start slowly, light, soft spanks is a nice way to ease into flogging, eventually build up to sharper more intense sessions but don’t rush into it.
How To Make A Flogger (Diy Flogger)
There a few ways to make a homemade flogger, for the money I would always just buy my own as you know it’s safe and you don’t have to waste your time making it, however, if you do want to do this yourself, there are some ways.
You can cut up an old piece of leather, things like a leather skirt, a suede shirt, you can pick these up cheap in charity shops, cut a few narrow strands into the materials and then wrap this around a handle of sorts, you can use something like a broom handle, secure the material in place with nails or strong glue and enjoy your new flogger.
For the fronds, you could also use a clothesline (which is super cheap to buy) and other clothing materials cut into strands and secured onto a secure makeshift handle.
I also came across this video which gives you a nice tutorial on how to make an at-home flogger.
