WHAT DOES THIS FLOGGER FEEL LIKE?

We do our best to describe each flogger accurately, in terms of 'feel'. We do this on the basis of material and weight as this will affect the general 'feel'. However, the specific 'feel' is extremely variable and based on the recipient and how it is used.

STINGY VS THUDDY: EXPLAINED

Sting is a piercing, cutting stripe of pain, a burning blaze of heat, largely felt in the surface of the skin. Sting is usually left by a fast blow with a small impact area. When marks are produced, they tend to be thin lines or welts to the skin. In patches it can leave a tingly sensitive sensation in its wake.

Thud is a deep, penetrating blow, felt deep in the muscle and flesh, less so in surface of the skin. Thud is made by a heavier toy, usually a slower moving blow with a wider impact area. When marks are produced, they tend to be larger pink, red, or bruised areas.

ABOUT OUR ROPE

It’s a synthetic bondage rope; this means it has a very different level of tooth to that of a natural fibre rope. It’s very smooth, with almost no tooth. Which means, a lot less friction, making it a slicker, faster rope.

DO YOU MAKE CUSTOM ITEMS?

Yes and no. We can on occasion make custom orders. Although, it is not guaranteed that we will be able to fulfil your request. We are often able to make something similar to an item you have seen which we may have sold, rather than designing one from scratch. However, do not hesitate to get in touch if you have something specific in mind and we will see what we can do.

If you are interested in purchasing one of the ‘massive floggers’ please get in touch via our contact form or our socials. We can then discuss specific requirements and arrange a deposit based on the final cost.

SUEDE VS LEATHER

Suede is inherently less resistant to UV light and also will tend to pick up dust and dirt more than grained leathers.

Typically, suede makes for a softer feel on impact. Leather can too but when it is more supple and soft to begin with.  However, leather can also 'break in' meaning it will become softer and therefore less stingy over time. Whereas suede is more likely to maintain its original feel.

Despite all of this, natural materials can be all behave differently based on a variety of factors. 

WHAT IS NUBUCK LEATHER?

Nubuck is top-grain cattle leather that has been sanded or buffed on the grain side, to give a slight nap of short protein fibres, producing a velvet-like surface. It is resistant to wear. Please note, oils may stain this material.
