Ignore the BDSM Rules

The Japanese Silk Love Rope Plaited Flogger is a very, very soft flogger. This is one of those floggers that will not hurt your partner no matter how hard you try. It's soft, sensual, and you don't have to worry about technique. I love it.

The Japanese Silk Love Rope Plaited Flogger is a flogger produced by Topco. This flogger is made from the same silk rope that goes into the rest of their Japanese Love Rope series including the cuffs, hogtie set, and bondage rope. The flogger comes in a soft, silky red and is a total of two feet long. There are ten tails on this flogger - all made from the plaited silk rope. There is a metal ring on the end of the flogger that allows for it to hang.

Basically, how this flogger is made is that rope was pulled through a metal piece and looped over until the two sides matched each other in length. From there, the smaller rope was tightly bound as the handle to keep the rope from slipping back through the metal pieces. The manufacturer's then unbraided some of the plaits of the rope and there you go! It's a flogger now.

This has probably the neatest packaging I've ever seen from a flogger. Instead of just coming in a plastic baggie like other floggers and BDSM toys do, this comes in a nicely-made plastic bag that snaps shut on one end. It's meant to be kept, and if you don't want to hang this up, the bag will work great for storage since it's strong, durable, and will keep the water out of the bag.

The flogger itself is relatively light. Because it's all made from silk rope, (aside from the metal pieces), this is extremely light-weight and easy to handle. From a top's point of view, the rope as a handle works extremely well. It provides an interesting texture that keeps the flogger in your hand. The handle should work well for all different types of hands. My female hand fit on it fine, but it provided lots of room for a male hand as well. The metal o-ring on the top is removable by a clip, so you don't have to worry about being hit with it during play.

The neat thing about this flogger is how it feels. It really does feel like silk. The feeling of the unbraided silk rope is something that really isn't replicated in any other type of flogger. Because of the light weight of this flogger, there isn't any sort of a thuddy feeling during use. It just feels like someone is lightly brushing the tails against your back. I put everything I had into it, and this didn't produce a sting on his skin, so if you are a beginner, seriously - this is perfect. It's soft, luxurious, and is soft no matter how you wield it. This one really doesn't require too much practice for aim nor do you really have to "obey" most of the no-hit zones because there's no way this thing is going to hurt anyone. (I still wouldn't hit someone in the face with it though.)

The boyfriend says that this feels quite a bit like being stroked with a soft feather, even when I was attacking him full strength. This is not a sadist's flogger. This is easily meant for those who want practice or don't want to take their time to practice aim before playing with a partner. He said there was absolutely no pain involved, and it felt much more like a sensual toy than any sort of kinky, painful flogger - which is always nice.

The only thing I'm concerned about is the plaits from the rope. As you can notice, they unraveled the rope half-way up the rope strands to make all the free-falling pieces. From what I can tell, there was no sort of knot or special treatment to keep the rope from continuing to unravel all the way up the strands. Which would severely disappoint me because half of the "control" of this flogger comes from half of the strands still being intact. Without that, it'd be too light-weight to control. So, basically, my strands haven't unraveled all the way, but with lots and lots of use, I'm afraid it will. For the sake of you, lucky reviewers, I'm going to use it without any modification to see if it does happen and notify you in a follow-up. However, if you want to prevent this problem in your own toy and not take the chance, clear nail polish keeps threads from unraveling.
Experience
So what would we use this for? I mean, I'm totally a BDSM-lover; why would I want such a soft toy? Because it's soft! Really. That's it. With this, I don't have to worry about form or safe spots because it isn't going to hit. Kidney? WHAP. Toes. WHAP. (Hitting with this on the feet makes him giggle.) This will not work as a warm-up flogger since it's too light to prep the skin for rougher use, but it's just a fun, playful toy that could work great for teasing if your partner is wanting something rougher or if you just want to take out some aggression without harming your partner. This is definitely going on the "Wall of Floggers" for us for frequent use.
Follow-up commentary
Surprisingly, I still like it. I would have imagined it would have become less loved as we kept it, but it didn't. I still enjoy it quite a bit. Instead of using it on the boyfriend, I dubbed it the "subbie flogger" since when he wants to pretend he has a Dominant bone in his body (Really, it's hilarious), I'll let him play around with it. (He ends up hitting himself more than anything else - hence the need for a light, soft flogger.)

In the original review, I expressed concern over the tails. I'm not sure why, but they haven't actually unraveled themselves despite multiple uses. It's odd. I assumed they would sense nothing seems to be holding them braided, but they haven't seemed to come apart at all.

The flogger itself also hasn't tangled nor crinkled. We keep it hanging on the wall by the O-ring, and it looks as good as new. Definitely one of the favorite floggers.
