I am very pleased with this whip. It was our first whip, and we couldn't have made a better choice. My husband loves how easy it is to hold it and wield it. I love how stingy it can be and how red it makes my skin after a good session. My only major complaint is that it can't be displayed on our "wall of pain" because it doesn't have a wrist strap. We don't have the biggest apartment, but we still have room to bring out the Fashionistas whip for a good time!

Flogging For Fashion
The Fashionistas line is sumptuous and pleases the body as well as the eye. While the falls are not as sensual as they would be if they were made of real leather or suede they do provide a good stingy thud. It's unlikely it will break the skin but it will get the job done.
A whip for the fashionista in us all. Sleek and sexy in design, this flogger/probe duo is an excellent piece for beginners and collectors alike. When introducing a little kink into the bedroom, you will want this whip by your side.
A whip and a probe! Sexy, great for teasing.
Fashionistas Whip by Icon Brands is multifaceted and fun in every way. With a glass handle that will glide into its subject with such ease and comfort, this is great for beginners who aren’t used to girth quite yet. And with long tendrils sprouting from the handle, they will splay across skin in such a playful, teasing way.
You can use this toy all over the body---across the butt, thighs, back, etc. It can be inserted both vaginally and anally because of the knot piece that connects the strands to the probe.
Design / Craftsmanship / Size / Material / Features:
The black handle is 6 inches in length and has a frosted fishnet pattern on it. This can be felt with your fingers but not during insertion---it adds a very pretty focal point to this piece. Made out of tempered glass, it has a safety rating of 10 and can be used with the lubrication of your choosing.
The faux leather strands are 15 inches long, and there are 24 in total. Each has the complete real leather look and feel, but may fray with heavy use. They deliver a thwack with a nice sting, but nothing a stranger to kink can’t handle. This whip and probe have no smell, even out of the box.
Performance-wise this is the perfect piece for teasing. Being that the probe is sleek and straight to the point, you won’t get much from insertion from this other than being completely turned on. It works well as a dress up piece for a costume, and even some intermediate use. If you are looking for some hardcore whipping, you may want to seek a leather piece.
Care and Maintenance:
Because this is a whip, you won’t have to worry too much about maintenance. With a quick rub down with some wipes, the strands can be easily cleaned. As for the probe, treat it as you would any other glass piece in your collection. A spray or soap and water will suffice; try not to get the strands sopping wet though, as they may wear down.
For the price of this whip, I was completely blown away. It looks incredibly high quality once you take it out of the box. I love that you can use it as a probe and to whip; it made it seem like I was getting 2 toys for the price of one. Though I am still figuring out where I stand kink-wise, this toy made it fun to discover a little more on my journey.
