Okay, you can stop laughing now. Fine, I’m loving each and every second of "research". I am seriously considering going to this kinky event I heard about on Fetlife to see what I’ve
been missing. There’s this rope bondage training thingy that takes place every weekend that I’m working up the nerve to go to. And you should see my toy box. Actually, I need a
new one. I’m thinking one of those big medieval trunks.
Anyway, if you wanna know more about my toys...well, darlin’s, you’ve got to read my books. Everything I’ve used is mentioned at some point! For those who have read my books, think sane stuff. And just to throw you off, I mean sane by my standards.
All right, all right, I’m done teasing. Ready for my review of my very first whip?
Here you go:
necklaces. The flogger itself—another thing, it’s
labelled a whip, but I think it’s a flogger—is small and elegant. Perfect for beginners because there’s
nothing scary about it. Whether you’re roleplaying or training a new sub, man or woman, super strong or tiny, this dainty piece will not intimidate anyone. Which could be a problem if that’s your intention, but really, if you’re ready for
that level of play, you know how to shop for your sex toys and tools.
One of the things I really loved about the Sensua Suede Whip is the suede. If you don’t like things made of animal skin, you probably won’t understand the appeal, but for me, the second I picked it up I stroked the tails, then brought them up to my nose to savour the rich, leather scent. The handle is nicely balanced, so I imagined that would made for some nice, even strikes.
And here’s where the flogger goes from five stars to four. Other may have a
different experience, but I found that no matter how hard you try, the tails
striking your flesh does little more than sting. I might not be the most experienced person in the world, but I’ve gotten spankings with a hand and a belt. I’d hoped this would up the intensity a little, but it didn’t.
The good thing about the flogger is it makes for a nice, sensual warm up. You
can build up anticipation, maybe even switch things up spontaneously to catch
your lover off-guard. Don’t get what I mean? Think about it:
Facedown on the bed, she moaned as the flogger swept across her bottom, rising up to meet teasing strokes that seemed endless.
Oh, more! More!
The soft tails trailed between her legs, caressing her damp heat. Deliciously sensual, but...
Sharp pain exploded just below her hip. She threw back her head as moisture trickled down her thigh. Endless, lulling pleasure, and now...
“Ah!” Tears stung her eyes as fire danced up her other thigh. Again the flogger teased her, but this time, she tensed every time it touched her. Anticipation drew her attention away from everything else, from her worries, from the world. In tune with every sensation--blazing pain, sizzling pleasure, all one and the same—she found herself sobbing, begging as her entire being devolved into a thing of pure need.
Of course, some skill would be required to bring a woman to that point, but practice makes perfect. And sorry, but I don’t consider that cliché in this case. You really must practice. Repeatedly if necessary. Several times a day.
