The Hearts Leather Thong Whip is your basic flogger, just smaller. It is all leather and has a small metal D ring at the top. There is no wooden or plastic rod inside the handle; instead, the falls are folded in half (with the D ring placed in the middle) and more strips of leather are wrapped around the top to create the handle. Because the handle is flexible, it does take a bit to get used to swinging the flogger with precision and force, but it is easily mastered. Though small and simple in construction, the flogger is well-made and sturdy and can easily withstand light or heavy play.
The leather has a delicious light scent to it and only a small amount of shedding (when being handled, and some in the plastic bag it came in). There is no handle strap on the flogger; however, the small ball chain that attaches the tag to the D ring can be used for hanging the item. Though small, flexible, lightweight, and soft, this toy does pack quite the punch (or sting).
The flogger is 16" total in length; the handle is 4" long and 5/8" in diameter, and the falls are 12" long and 1/8" in width.
Don't let the Hearts Leather Thong Whip's looks deceive you. This little baby produces quite a bit of sting! Because the handle is flexible and the toy is lightweight, it does take a little bit of practice before one can produce the desired effects with this flogger, but it's worth it. Those who prefer thuddier whipping might be disappointed with this flogger; it is thin and light, so it really doesn't produce that type of sensation. However, aiming the tips of the leather falls at your desired body part produces amazing stinginess, even when swung lightly. Swinging the flogger harder will definitely provide quite a bit of sting and pain...and welts.
Again, don't let this product fool you: its simple construction is sturdy and can withstand whatever you throw at it, or whatever you throw it at.
No care instructions are given for the Hearts Leather Thong Whip. It is a leather product, so care should be taken to keep lubricants and body fluids off of it. If needed, wipe with a damp rag, or use a leather cleaning product, and allow to completely dry before storing. Storing a wet or damp leather product will cause it to mold. Because of its small size, it can be easily stored where desired, and it can also be traveled with easily.
The Hearts Leather Thong Whip has very minimal packaging; a sealed plastic bag and a tag attached via ball chain.
