Double Slapper

I wanted something to deliver a smack, a slap, that was travel-size. Many paddles that I’ve seen so far on sextoy.com were bigger than my current toy storage bag could handle (hopefully this will be changing soon – the bag). I liked the idea of the two pieces of leather for an “extra audible sound”

Black Suede Flogger |

When I chose the flogger, I chose it because it is simple. Kinda small, easily could fit into my current toy storage bags. It’s not big and bad, and it’s a material of flogger that I’ve not tried before.

When I first received it, I was a bit underwhelmed. It’s -really- simple. But then I used it. And I looked it over more, and felt it and fell in love with it. Seriously? This is a really great quality flogger.

It is basically 5 strands of 1/2″ wide black suede, folded over a metal O-ring and then the handle is made by the top ummm 10″ I think (lost my ruler) being wrapped spiral-like and then there is a plastic/rubber/ I don’t know “sleeve” over that wrapped portion that is shrink-wrapped I guess, to protect the wrapped end and make for a nice handle. Since the strips are continuous up over that metal ring…they’re not going to ever fall out. This flogger appears to be able to withstand many years of use. It’s affordable, too. I’ve looked at other, more fancy, floggers. They appear to have a handle that is pretty, and the flogger strands are likely glued into that. To ME that seems like it could come apart eventually with heavy use or accidental improper storage. This flogger won’t do that.

I like this flogger. Perhaps a bit too much. I have only tried it out on one partner and while his pain tolerance is certainly more than mine…..well, perhaps it’s not his pain tolerance at fault but my seriously sadistic streak. I really get off on flogging/whipping. Perhaps it’s the fact that my body can really get into it – with the suede flogger I can hit a little  harder. This flogger fueled this fantasy, and if things go my way….it won’t stay fantasy for very much longer. Yes, boys and girls…..my dominant side is rising up more and needs to be sated.

It’s funny….flogging and whipping and paddling are things that I really get into, being on the delivery end. But many other sadistic treasures I just cannot dish out. Why? I’m terribly squeamish. Really bad. Seeing the skin all purple-red while trapped in tight rope bondage and in suspension…gah. Nipple clamps? Can’t look. I won’t even get into the more extreme things like needle play and other skin things. *shudders* But oh….oh my can I get into flogging.

The first thing I received to review for sextoy.com is some bondage rope. I have to point out that on the site, there seems to be two different “japanese silk love rope”, but they are both indeed the same even though the photos differ. They are both Topco brand. One thing that wasn’t mentioned by the manufacturer and therefore couldn’t be included on the site is the width of the rope. If you study up at Twisted Monk’s site, width means a lot. 6mm is pretty ideal and standard, 8mm is wide and results in bulky knots.

The upside to 8mm, which this rope is, is that it’s wider and requires fewer passes over the area. You want the area of pressure to be wider so that it’s not damaging and cutting off circulation or otherwise too painful.

I’m going to assume this rope is nylon, it doesn’t say. It is quite soft and “silky”, but since I am a rope beginner I’m not sure that that’s -great- for rope bondage….wouldn’t there be less friction there, friction needed to maintain the knots? But if the person you’re tying up is sensitive to scratchy things, this would be good. If you’re new to rope bondage, the 8mm would be good also so that you ensure safety and comfort. This is the 16-foot length, and pretty versatile. Hopefully soon I’ll try out more techniques and maybe get photos.
