Use

This flogger's main purpose is for use in impact play of those who like to engage in mild to heavy BDSM. It can be used by anyone, whether couples or solo to inflict mild to moderate pain on the intended areas you strike. The flogger can be used as a form of punishment, or as a reward to your partner/sub who misbehaves in the bedroom or at a play party, and is great for beginners to advanced users alike. Depending on how hard the person wielding the flogger strikes, it provides various amounts of sensations, whether light or heavy, both resulting in stinging blows. Add in a blindfold, some cuffs, and a gag, and you've got your own little party in the privacy of your home.

Use the flogger on bigger areas, such as the back, thighs, buttocks, legs or breasts/chest, as the falls are made to cover wider areas, and aren't the best for pinpointing smaller locations. If you decide to use this on the genitals, use caution as to not damage sensitive tissues, and know your partners limits. Always come up with a safe word or some kind of signal when engaging in BDSM. Do not flog your partner roughly near or on the genitals if they have metal or glass toys inserted, as this could cause both external and internal bruising in the area.

Design / Craftsmanship / Size / Material / Features

The Calf Leather Flogger is made from leather and rates a 7 out of 10 on the Eden safety scale for being a porous material. The flogger is well-made and extremely sturdy, even after rough use. On the product page it states that the flogger is 28 inches in length, but the one I received measures to 29 inches in total. There are 36, 5-16ths of an inch falls in total and they're grained leather on one side and soft suede-like on the back. The smell of leather is present from when you first open the package, and can be detected from a distance, so those sensitive to scent may not like it, but the smell of the new leather should dissipate over time.


The braided loop, the falls details, and the wrap holding the flogger together


Compared to a standard ruler and the Soft Touch flogger by Eden

The handle is made from braided grain leather, and is really flexible. A large hand can fit through the loop without problem, and it provides a wonderful grip. Below the handle, there is a leather wrap around the bottom of the handle just before the falls where it holds the flogger together. It's well-wrapped and doesn't look as though it will come loose anytime soon. The flogger is lightweight, so the user's arm won't tire after consistent use, and makes it easier to swing the falls.

The falls are springy and when pulled, they extend out more, but spring back to their original form when let go again. The ring itself has a herringbone pattern and if worn on the wrist is very comfortable. It doesn't pull hair or pinch the skin when encircling the wrist as some leather might. While the flogger doesn't have any special features, it is a wonderful flogger for the price. Users should consider this flogger fluid bound when used, as the material is highly likely to soak up any bodily fluids it comes into contact with.

The color is gender-neutral as it is all black and will appeal to almost anyone who is looking for a well-made flogger for play.

Performance

When brushed lightly over the skin, this flogger offers a lovely tickling sensation with the combination of the grainy and soft sides of the falls. It is perfect for teasing your partner while blindfolded or bound, and adds to the anticipation. Light flogging snaps against the skin and creates light stinging sensations that electrifies the skin in a subtle way. Heavier flogging creates a harsh sting, that feels delicious as it leaves small red marks on the flesh. With a heavier hand, this will create bright red marks along the skin, but may not last for long on the skin, and usually dissipate over a few minutes.

This flogger does not leave bruises on the skin, even with the roughest of play, but this is a wonderful flogger for even the more advanced arsenal. The falls when swung, move as one, but can entangle with one another easily. A quick shake and running your fingers through the falls will untangle these. It is essential that you have a lot of room to swing this flogger, as it does not perform well in tight spaces as more compact ones would. Users should be mindful of their surroundings if they have a wide range of motion as to be careful not to break anything when flogging their partner.

The sound of this flogger when hitting the skin makes a thudding sound combined with the slapping sting of the ends of the falls. If this flogger makes contact with a smaller limb, such as an arm or leg, the falls tend to wrap around and sting more.
    • Good for teasing
    • Might leave marks
    • Stingy

Care and Maintenance

Caring for leather items can be a little tedious and high maintenance if you're not used to it. This flogger requires good care in order to extend the life of the leather. Dirt and fluids that collect on the leather can be wiped down with a damp cloth and some mild soap, and after thoroughly cleaning allow to air dry flat on a hard surface. Do not soak leather thoroughly, and do not add harsh detergents or soaps to the surface as this can dry out the leather and cause it to crack. Do not leave your leather out in direct sunlight or heat, as this can also cause damage to the leather, and result in drying/cracking.

Leather tends to dry out on it's own with multiple uses, so you may want to invest in leather wipes that can help condition your flogger, keeping it looking new. Store your leather flogger in a cool, dark place such as a closet. When storing your flogger, always hang it from the braided loop on the end, or lay flat to prevent the falls from crinkling and distorting in shape. If the falls get tangled during use, always untangle them when storing the flogger as this can also distort them. In order to hang the flogger you can use large s-hooks, shower curtain rings, or coat hangers for a quick organization in your closet.

Packaging

The flogger was shipped discreetly inside of a plain, brown cardboard box. There weren't any indicators as to the contents of the box and it only had the addresses of where they were shipped from and to. EdenFantasys was not listed anywhere on the packaging. Once the box was opened, there were air pillows and the receipt inside. The flogger itself was wrapped in a plastic wrapper, and had a barcode sticker on the package for inventory purposes. There were not any instructions on cleaning or use, but none were needed with the flogger.

All of the packaging can be recycled if you'd like, as none of the packaging can be reused for storage. If gifting this item, you may wish to purchase a gift bag or box to pack it in, and should always tell the person you are gifting it to that it is an adult item in case they are easily embarrassed.
