Flog Me Gently

For $10, the flogger is a decent toy for people who want to entertain some light BDSM fantasies without breaking the budget. Simple flaws in design and construction deny this toy a “superb” rating, but it will last long enough to satiate your curiosity about flogging.

Use

With a crack of a flogger, you can show your partner who’s in charge. If you fantasize about this often, you are probably just like me, in the market for multiple floggers. For ten dollars, I made the Sex and Mischief Red Rope Flogger by Sportsheets mine. While lacking stimulation for experienced users, it is an easy to use and budget-friendly beginner’s item to BDSM fantasies.

Floggers are generally used for impact play. Even though this flogger is not heavy-duty, a range of sensations can still be created. To use, hold the flogger by the handle and swing it with the desired force against the surface you wish to strike. The red rope flogger is soft and light. The impact is also quite soft and dull, unless you use moderate to heavy force. The ends of the flogger were left unbraided allowing it to tickle and tease.

Start by tracing the ends of the flogger up and down your partner’s silhouette, working up to a gentle spanking. Gradually enforce heavier strokes that deliver more stingy sensations. The Sex and Mischief Red Rope Flogger is a great, unintimidating introduction to impact play.

Design / Craftsmanship / Size / Material / Features

The flogger is constructed as strings of rope of equal length secured to a handle. Judging from the shine in the pictures, you might conclude the ropes are nylon. The ropes are actually made of very soft polyester. They are dull in color, and almost have a cotton feeling to them. When running hands through the rope, it feels smooth and gentle.


The handle is a light, wooden cylinder wrapped in a polyester vinyl handgrip. The handgrip is glued in a spiral to the wooden cylinder then secured with a rivet at the top of the handle. The material of the handgrip provides a firm and comfortable grasp of the flogger. It’s soft, but not too sleek. I do not know the rivet’s material, but it is nickel-free. This toy is safe for people with nickel allergy.



There’s a wrist strap made of the same rope on top of the handle. You can use this strap to hang the flogger to a hook for storage. Make sure you loop your hand through this wrist strap during use; it will prevent the flogger from flying out of your hand when you exert a lot of force during flogging.


11 pieces of rope of equal length are attached securely to the top of the handle. There is braiding from the base of the rope until 0.5” near the end. The ends of the rope are frayed, making it even lighter and softer than the braided portion.


Fully extended, the flogger is 24” long. The wrist strap takes 5”, the handle 6.5”, and the “tails” of the flogger 12.5”. There’s no weird smell or odor. Overall, the flogger is made with decent craftsmanship. When I try to pull the ropes off the handle, I can feel that they are safely secured. I have no concerns that it will fall apart. However, Sportsheets left the end of the rope unbraided and unsecured. With use, the braiding will eventually come apart, rendering the flogger ineffective.

Performance

The flogger doesn’t hold any shape and there is a lack of structural integrity. This makes it difficult to consistently strike the same area, as it is hard to control the direction the ropes travel. Experienced users or people who want to feel some pain should stay away from this toy.

I tried to hold the ends of the rope with one hand and stretch it taut before swinging the handle. This does not help the accuracy of the strike because the rope would start flailing midair in different directions before hitting the target area.

After hard strikes for several minutes against a table, small bits of rope started to fray. Against softer surfaces like human flesh, the rope would fray less. After all, the flogger is pretty cheap, and works as a novelty toy for light experimentation. Upon extended play (using it for about an hour combined), more parts of the rope unfurled and I decided to just tie up all the ends in knots.
    • Good for teasing

Care and Maintenance

Because of the wooden handle, I would not advise submerging the toy in water or in a laundry machine. To wash the handle, use soap on a washcloth to wipe away surface stains. Any stains or mold on the wood would be difficult to remove. The rope could be washed completely with soap or laundry detergent under running water and then air dried.

The product does not come with a bag or storage pouch, so you could hang it somewhere or tuck it away in a box or drawer. Just make sure it is completely dry before storing it. If there is any mold on the wood, the product is no longer safe to use.
    • Easy to store
    • Hard to clean
    • High maintenance

Packaging

The flogger came packaged in a clear plastic bag. A card attached to the flogger contains the beginning of an erotic story. You can scan the QR code on the card from your mobile device to read the rest of the story. There isn’t any instruction on how to use the product, but if you visit the site using the QR code, the online video suggests the product induces a lot of moaning.

    • Minimal
    • Not discreet

Personal comments

Personally, I think this is a great beginner toy. It mimics the sound and motions of flogging, yet the rope with frayed ends are so soft that you don’t have to worry about hurting your partner. As with all BDSM play, make sure you know you and your partner’s limit. Try testing each implement on yourself before the flogger touches your partner.

Experience

I used this against my boyfriend at first for a few minutes. With soft strikes he did not feel much. With moderate strikes he felt some very slight stinging and with hard strikes at the right places he felt a bit of pain. The pain is not sharp or piercing, it is rather dull and broad. As long as you aren’t expecting much from a flogger in terms of accuracy, longevity or quality construction, the results are decent for a cheap toy.

The flogger performed much better after I tied the ends together into knots. It was more accurate and much more painful when used with the same amount of force than when untied.

Suggestion:
Two simple fixes would make this flogger a lot more effective and easy to maintain, without bumping up the cost. The first is braiding the ends of ropes or tying knots. This would improve the accuracy of each strike and reduce the fraying, in addition to providing more forceful impacts. The second is an all-plastic handle, which would make cleaning a lot easier and eliminate the possibility of mold.
Follow-up commentary
The Sex and Mischief Red Rope Flogger is a great beginner’s flogger. My boyfriend and I have moved on to other floggers, and we rarely use it anymore. We’ve never undone the modifications we made to it because they made the flogger effective.
