Review: Sh! Red Rose Flogger

The Red Rose Cat O Nine Tails Whip is pretty. Unbelievably pretty. And it inspires great jokes. And by “great” I mean terrible. I’m sure you already know what I’m talking about, alluding to roses being a gesture of love and all that. These roses are a gesture of pain. Lovely lovely pain.

I already had a rose crop that I reviewed ages ago. Unfortunately it broke mid use and I haven’t yet purchased another. It sparked my love of impact play toys that look like something else. Using roses, hearts, stars, etc. to hit people with is immensely fun. Seriously.

It’s a cat o’ nine tails in that it has… wait for it… nine falls or “tails” or individual braids of leather that you can hit someone with01. It’s really a type of flogger rather than a whip even though it is referred to as the latter. A whip is generally something with only one flexible striking point rather than multiple. Of course, this varies depending on who you talk to.

This flogger is sturdy and fairly well balanced even with its ridiculously long falls. At the end of each fall is a pretty red leather rose. The only thing I would change is to make the “stems” and leaves of the roses green, keeping the handle black and the roses red, though they also carry a purple version that is equally gorgeous.

The Red Rose Cat O Nine Tails Whip is a little unpredictable without sufficient practice. The sensation varies from ridiculously stingy to thuddy and delicious depending on how it’s thrown. I suggest much practice on a pillow before just jumping in with it because of how different the swings are. Of course, practice will only get you so far so a good communicative bottom is the next place to go. Personally, I really love the thud that the roses themselves produce and am not that fond of the stingyness that occurs when the braided bits of the falls02 get involved. YMMV03.

Onyx, who has been the primary but not sole wielder04 says basically the same thing: “Using the rose flogger requires a certain amount of technique recalibration. The heaviness of the rose-petal ends means it balances very differently from other floggers I have used and so it felt somewhat “off” in the beginning. I had to re-learn how to swing it properly to use it to its full potential. Despite this learning curve it is very fun to use once the technique is mastered, and has a very delightful thuddy slap when it connects properly.

Once you get used to using it, though, it’s amazing. Especially for those who love thuddy toys. It is likely to send you to wonderful thuddy heaven. Love! Thanks so much to Sh! Women’s Erotic Emporium for sending me a Red Rose Cat O Nine Tails Whip.

Review: Fur and Leather Flogger

furandleather

For some reason I expected this to be longer, but it’s really quite short. I know it says on the product page that it’s mini, but I still imagined it to be the size of the other rabbit flogger I have, which was the inspiration for me wanting this flogger. It’s short, which isn’t bad, because that means you don’t need full swings to get at places, and it works well on just about anywhere large or small.

Like I said, I have a rabbit flogger, which is nice and soft and is “impact caresses” as Onyx and I have phrased it. The rabbit-only flogger is wonderful for those who don’t like pain at all, or when you want to be nice, or just for giving a soft massage of sorts. I like the feeling of fur flogging but was interested in having a bit more oomph to the sensation as well, so when I saw the fur AND leather flogger I knew I had to try it.

The leather definitely adds sensation. It’s not super stingy, as said above I would give it a one out of three for stingyness, so there’s definitely a little bite to it but hardly any at all. The impact caressing of the rabbit fur added to the slight stingyness of the leather creates a unique sensation. I really love the juxtaposition of this flogger against the other long suede flogger that we have and against the rabbit-ONLY one as well.

It’s not super fancy, but it definitely is unusual. While it doesn’t have any fancy braiding on it the flogger itself is well made and while the price may seem a little much for a small flogger it will last you quite a while. It would be perfect for sensation sluts as well as a great warm-up flogger for pain sluts. Overall I highly recommend it!

Review: Black Large Rubber Whip

black rubber whip

Between Onyx and myself we have a good amount of impact play toys, though there are so many out there I always am interested in new and different kinds of floggers, canes, paddles, and etc. to include in our play.

When I saw the Black Large Rubber Whip was available for review I was intrigued. Onyx and I had actually just been to Babeland not too long before I got it and had looked at their bdsm gear section. While it’s not extensive it does have a good amount of quality products, and this Rubber Whip is no exception.

It’s a very basic design, two knobs and a piece of plastic piping with dozens of strands of rubber looped through them, anchored on the other side by the wrist strap. They actually have two other whips almost identical to this one, the difference is color and length, the Pink Medium Rubber Whip and Red Mini Whip (the latter would be wonderful for whipping close sensitive areas like breasts or genitals).

I’m not really sure why it’s called a whip rather than a flogger. In contemporary usage, as far as I know, the term whip is generally reserved for single-tail whips–like what Indiana Jones uses–while the term flogger is actually used as a somewhat catch-all term for something with multiple tails (usually leather but also rope, rubber, or etc.) and a handle. That’s what I’ve found others to say as well. Though another distinction could be along the lines of the thuddy to stingy continuum, such as the thuddy toys are floggers while the stingy toys are whips, but this isn’t as widely used since floggers and whips can produce a wide range of sensation depending on how and where they are used.

That query out of the way let’s get to what you’re actually interested in: how it feels to use and to take it! ‘Cause the information about the toy itself is only useful if you know it’s going to do what you want it to.

Well, what I really like about the Black Large Rubber Whip is that it has a good amount of versatility to it, though most floggers do. It can be light and teasing, trailed softly across sensitive exposed skin. It can be soft and thuddy, launched lightly at a bare bottom to evoke pleasure more than pain. And it can be harsh and stingy, snapped quickly to make the tips lick at tender flesh.

This range of sensation isn’t rare in the stingier end of floggers especially, that’s part of why I love floggers so, because one toy can be so versatile. As a poly queer switch I’m all for versatility.

Because it has such a range, also, it can be useful to beginner and advanced kinksters alike, making it a nice addition regardless of skill level. Due to the material of the strands, rubber as opposed to a harder or thicker material, it is rare for it to leave marks of any kind. Now, this could be a negative for those of us who like marks (myself included) but there are times when you don’t want to have marks on your thighs, ass, and lower back or wherever else you are wanting to use it. This toy is especially nice for great sensation and impact play without the worry of getting marked up in the process.

It’s lightweight and the handle is easy to hold on to while using it. While the handle is smooth plastic there are knobs on either side so there was no slipping in my hand while I used it. It’s also affordable, and while it is simple it’s good quality. Overall I’d say if you’re interested in a versatile and affordable flogger to add to your collection, this is a good one to consider.

Much thanks to Babeland for letting me review the Black Large Rubber Whip!
