Bondage Flogger Buying Guide

Wield a flogger as you strike your submissive partner. Welp in orgasmic pain as you feel the tassels brush against your bare skin. Whatever the fantasy, a flogger is a great addition to any bondage set. The tool will allow you to inflict as much pain as you’d like. As a bondage item, there are so many options available to you. You can literally pinpoint the exact sensations you want to create! Plus you can experiment with different ones for different forms of play. The choice is yours!



What is a Flogger?

A flogger is a handle with multiple tassels also known as tails or falls. Different floggers offer different sensations. There are two broad sensations, ‘stinging’ and ‘thudding’. Stinging sensations are more painful and sits on the skin, likely to create welts, grazes or even cuts. Thudding is more of a deeper striking sensation, which is more likely to create bruises instead of welts.

The broad rule with any impact play is the thinner the surface area, the more of a sting it will give. A larger surface area creates more of a thud and a louder sound.

When you’re looking to get your special piece of equipment, look at the tassels themselves. A flogger with thicker or wider tassels will create more of a thud. You can decide between you and your partner what type of sensation you're looking for. Or maybe experiment with a few.

If you’re a beginner you’ll want something with a high number of thick tails. It’ll create a softer sensation within play, as the impact is spread about among the tails. Perfect for first time play! You can then build up your preferences as you learn what you like.

Beginner/Sensation Play

In Terms of Material: Floggers come in all sorts of materials. Popular ones include latex, leather, leather look, suede, satin and metal. All have unique characteristics and will give you a slightly different experience.

Beginner/Sensation Play
Satin- There’s nothing quite like a satin flogger to introducing you to flogging. It’s also great if you like to mix up play with lighter sensations. Satin provides a nice biting sensation. The fibres have an almost seductive feel to them. You’re also less likely to mark the skin which is great for after care.
Suede-Now this material looks the part. Suede floggers have this brilliant vibrant texture to them that makes a fantasy come to life. Like Satin, the fibres are perfect for sensation play. They’re bound to leave that ultimate biting sensation.

Advanced/Impact Play

Latex- Will bounce off the skin. It’ll give you a fantastically strong sensation that can mark or break the skin. Plus get that rubbery smell for any rubberists out there!
Leather-One of the most popular types of flogger! Leather floggers provide a strong sensation for serious impact play. They have a leathery sound and an iconic feel that can be a favourite for many. Plus their a lot softer than latex with a unique consistency to the material.
Metal-This is probably the most hardcore flogging materials out there. You should only use it if you are experienced with floggers. A metal flogger provides a strong cold sensation that’s bound to leave heavy impact on the skin. The sound of metal chain is rather exciting and they’re a rather great watch to notch it up

Overall Flogger Experience

A great addition for any flogger experience is to get yourself a soothing gel for aftercare. It’ll give you a cooling sensation that’s all part of the fun. We’d recommend the Bound to Excite Soothing Gel which cools and calms marked areas after a scene.

The Look:
Your fantasy is your fantasy. So getting the style right can really improve the mood. Floggers come in pretty much every colour and there are all sorts of handle styles. So if leathers your thing, spice it up with a traditional leather handle. Or what about wood? Short or long? Your choice.
