A Bondage Riding Crop is useful for many types of play including sensation and impact play. Use it to create a snappy sting sensation or to tease along your partner's body. A Riding Crop will help you fulfil all sorts of sexual fantasies. You can be that strict disciplinarian or tease your partners' inner urges! It will make a statement in any BDSM scenario however it's important to use the correct one for the scenario you're creating.

The Tip

Deciding on the tip of your crop is one of the biggest decisions. Different styles of tips will generate completely different sensations. Maybe you want to try a sharp intense feeling or a soft tingling across the body?

Feather Riding Crop- These are great for forms of sensation and softer play. Experiment with the tingles created from the feathers and explore new scenarios! You can either brush the feathers across the body or give a 'thwack' to increase the intensity. Feather Riding Crops are great to build fantasies, an absolute must for a naughty maid scenario! A Feather Riding Crops focuses on sensations rather than intense impact so are therefore great for beginners also.

Leather Riding Crop- A fantastic addition to any bondage kit. These crops provide a traditional riding crop style and are extremely versatile in their usage. Leather tips provide a tough and durable material to create an intense sensation against the skin. You can use different whipping styles and hit different parts of the body to change the intensity. Leather tips provide a classical style that is very popular in many different strict disciplinarian fantasies.

Style Crops- Styled crops are great extra touches for a Costume. A tip can dramatically vary in style so you can almost always find one that complements your outfit. Remember to look at the different widths of the tips. A wider tip will provide a sensation across a larger area but the intensity will be less whereas a thin tip will create an intense biting sensation across a small area.

The Look

There are different styles to suit different scenarios so when buying a crop you need to be thinking about what fantasy you will be using it in. If unsure, black crops are great for multiple looks. Think about any decoration you may want to include also, ribbons, studs and tassels. On some crops they are just for decoration but on some they can really enhance your experience.

Length and Flexibility

Crops come in various sizes, shorter crops like the Black Velvet & Leatherette Square Edged Paddle will bring you and your partner closer in distance, it is important to recognise distance as it can create different levels of intimacy.

Consider control as well when it comes to length, the shorter a crop the more control over a precise strike you will have. Longer Crops like the Leather Riding Crop with Thread Tail is great for discipline play as it'll give you more control over making an impact rather than impacting a certain area. Whereas shorter crops are great for intimate play.

Flexibility is another factor to consider. A more flexible crop focuses on the wrist action whereas a more rigid crop requires a longer arm length. Both are great for different types of fantasies.

Handle

Smaller details to think about are things like the handle. Having a loop to put your hand through can make it easy to hold and easy to store. For example the handle on the Leather Double Fringe Paddle. This is a great all round paddle with a loop for security and a studded border.

The handle should fit comfortably within your palm, it is important to consider the handle as it can enhance the holders' experience. There are handles designed to fit within a hands grip, soft and plush handles and multi-grip for really throwing around!
