Guide to buying floggers

Affordable Leather Products’ Guide to Buying Floggers

There are many different types of floggers on the market today, such as Braided Leather Floggers, Straight Tail Suede Floggers, Heavy Duty Loop Tail Suede Floggers and even Suede Thong and Horse Hair Floggers, so we are often asked "What sort of flogger should buy?"


Well here is a guide to help you decide...


I’m a newbie to Impact Play, what’s a good flogger for a beginner?

Light Weight Suede Floggers Heavy Suede Loop Tail Floggers

If you are new to floggers, we’d recommend starting with one of our Straight Tail or Thuddy Loop Tail Suede Floggers

The suede floggers have a softer, more thuddy impact rather than the "whip" of a Riding Crop or the "slap" of a Paddle or Tawse, let alone the hard sting of a Braided Flogger or Cane

The "straight tail" suede floggers have a bit of a "flick" on the end of the tails which does sting a little, but the "loop tail" floggers are almost pure thud, they have a deep impact which penetrates down into the skin and muscle rather than the impact of a cane or crop which has more effect on the surface of the skin.

These floggers can have a very sensuous feeling as the impact tends to radiate throughout the surrounding tissue and muscle, hitting with a soft thump, but not causing bruising unless applied vigorously.

I want a flogger that’s good for warming up

Black or White Horse Hair Flogger

For a tingly sensation and something that’s good for warm-ups we suggest one of our Horse Hair Floggers

Horse Hair has a unique sensation and is amazingly versatile. You can start off by gently brushing it across the skin with a soft caress, then start to build up very slowly, just sweeping the tails across the body. This starts to make the skin tingle and is excellent for warming it up as it brings the blood towards the surface and encourages the brain to create endorphins (the body’s natural pain killers) which allows greater enjoyment of strong sensations.

Once you’ve got the skin warmed up you can flick the ends of the tails back and forth or use the length of the tails for a more solid hit.

Horse Hair Floggers are by far the most versatile piece of Discipline Equipment we sell and we’d recommend them for any fetishist’s toy bag!

I’m fairly experienced with floggers and want something more intense

Suede Thong Flogger Black Red Purple Leather Cat o Nine Tails

For the more experienced players (or people who want some sting) there are the Suede Thong Floggers or Cat o’Nine Tails

Suede Thong Floggers are a medium step between Horse Hair and the Braided Floggers, they’ve got a noticable "flick" on the end and certainly sting, but not as hard as the braided floggers (see below).

Cat o’Nine Tails come in different varieties, for instance our ones have thin, medium or thick leather tails depending on whether you want a fun, flicky sensation, a medium sting or a hard impact!

I’ve had a lot of experience with floggers. What have you got?

Braided Leather Floggers with Tabs

For the really experienced players (or those who like a lot of sting in their tail!) there are the Braided Leather Floggers.

The Braided Leather Floggers are thin and whippy with a very noticeable sting to them and are akin to the Cat o’Nine Tails. The Braided Floggers with Tabs in Black or Red are actually slightly (but only slightly!) more forgiving than the Straight Tail Black and Red Braided Flogger because the tabs on the falls cause them to flutter slightly through the air, slowing them down a little and cushioning the impact a bit, however don’t let than delude you into thinking that these are not serious toys!

Whichever of our floggers you buy, don’t forget to keep your play Safe, Sane and Consensual!
