In case you haven’t noticed, I love impact play. For me, there is just something that’s very erotic about it all. From the leather to the sound and the feeling; oh my gosh, I can get all excited just thinking about it.
Needless to say, I’m always on the hunt for something new to use during our playtime. Because no two floggers are alike, it’s always exciting to try out everyone that I can get my hands on. This has led to us having a rather collection. Unfortunately, not all of them make it into the top shelf of our toy chest. Most of them are nice and fun to play with, but I’m picky about the ones that we use on a regular basis. I think once you get to my level of hording pickiness just comes with the territory. Of the few dozen impact toys I’ve bought only a few get pulled out each and every time we play. That’s not to say we always use them all, I just think it’s better to be prepared just in case.
One of my top 7 tools to have used on me is the Ruff Doggie Barbed Wire Flogger. If you’ve never seen one of these erotic floggers you must’ve been hiding under a rock. Ruff Doggie is well known for their superb handmade floggers. Everything from the design and leather to the quality craftsmanship, this flogger is a work of art.
Not for the novice the Barbed Wire Flogger is just as its name implies. The falls are made up of wide suede strips with rubber covered thin leather strands twisted and fashioned to look exactly like barbed wire. Gazing upon it that hand of a Dominate, is sure to command attention. Not a girly whip, male dominators are sure to feel comfortable wielding it. In addition, the colors are vivid, classy, and appealing.
The handle is wood covered with weaved black and red leather strips; attached to the end is a wrist strap. Comfortable to grip and easy to hold onto, the handle is 8 inches long and 3 ½ inches in diameter. This flogger is weighty in your hand and has a nice down force as you use it. Although it’s not well balanced, it’s still easy to control when you play.
With 36 suede falls the leather is heavy and covers a large area when it strikes your body. As a rule of thumb the wider the strip the thudy-ier the sensation when it hits the skin. True to this, the suede straps are firm and subtle feeling. The addition of 12 leather barbed wire strips adds just the right amount of bite to this flogger. Not for the faint of heart, using minimal amount of force when you play makes a nice sting. Using force when yielding it’s sure to leave bright red marks across your submissive.
Play heavy with the Barbed Wire Flogger as if it were a cat of nine tails. The combination of the large suede strips with the thin barbed wire intertwined within it, works perfectly to create a realistic feel. While giving that hard firm bite and burn, the firm subtle suede soothes and melts your hot skin. For me it is beyond belief. Another appealing aspect of is its heavy leather smell. Even when holding the flogger in your hand you can smell the aroma of leather tickle your nose. Also when you play there’s no transfer of dye to your clothes or skin.
While I enjoy heavy type play, I can’t handle this flogger at full strength. After a bit of warming up, I can handle about half my Hubby’s power. However, remember pain is subject. Any time you play with new tools or partners, be sure to keep the lines of communication open and find that fine line between pleasure and pain.
At 21 ½ inches in length and with 1/3 inch falls, this flogger isn’t for tight and close spaces. Yielding a flogger takes a bit of room to maneuver. This is defiantly a tool for bending them over your knee. During our playtime we’ve found that it works best across to stripe across my back or my breasts. However, remember play safe. Long falls can wrap around the body and accidentally cause pain to organs such as the kidneys. Also, when playing keep in mind that the hardest impact is in the tips of the falls. Should you happen to notice broken skin while playing, stop and cover the area with a bandage to protect the suede from picking up pathogens.
Caring for your flogger is fairly simple. It’s always best to store them hanging to protect the falls from breaking. Also, they can be lusty folded over and the flogger put up. To protect the leather from mildewing, be sure to store it in a well ventilated area free from moisture. Any time that your flogger becomes damp or wet, completely dry the falls before storing.
When we play heavy this flogger is a must have. If it were smaller I would beg Hubby to use it each and every night. It’s really that much fun. None the less, the sheer length of the falls limits our play. We don’t have a play room and our bed room is rather cramped. I don’t let this stop us though. When the mood hits, I get everything ready and make sure we have enough time to play. Then Hubby tethers me to the overhead bar in the corner and…. Oh my, you’ll just have to imagine. One thing is for sure, buy the time our erotic session is over I can barely stand. It’s exhilarating.
If you don’t have one of these in your bag of toys, what are you waiting for?
