Whips


Whips

Whips are similar to paddles in such a way that they’re also used in impact play. But compared to paddles, whips are thin and send quick and sure hits on the targeted skin. It has a flexible end that you lash at exposed skin to instill fear and discipline in the sub. Simultaneously, the whip can leave a “sting” that can bring out trepidation and excitement on the sub. Depending on how you use it, it’s a great addition to an advanced level of BDSM play.

If you’re a complete beginner in BDSM, whips aren’t really advisable for you. They can be dangerous and risky. You can injure your partner if you have no idea what you’re doing.

However, if you’re somehow a seasoned player, it will depend on your style and the sub’s pain threshold. There are light impact whips that you can use if you’re starting out on whip play. There are also whips called “riding crops,” which have more surface area at the tip than a whip. There are so many options to choose from, so it’s important to talk thoroughly and do your research properly before buying one.

History of Whipping

Whipping, also known as flagellation, has been prevalent in ancient times. One of the earliest depictions of whipping is found in the Etruscan Tomb of the Whipping from the fifth century BC. Several literature pieces have also shown people enjoy erotic whipping, such as the sixth book of the Satires of the ancient Roman Poet Juvenal (1st–2nd century AD.)

It didn’t end there as more erotica started to unravel in the scene, one of which is John Cleland’s Fanny Hill. Published in 1749, this book features a scene wherein the lead was engaging in flagellation.

The people’s interest in whipping followed into the next century, with the early 20th century being considered the “Golden Age” for flagellation. Tons of novels have popped up, showcasing the sexual side of spanking.

Eventually, flagellation has become popular with the mainstream crowd. Couples started using whips, and other impact play toys in their sexcapades. And with the popularity of BDSM-themed movies, whipping has become a common sexual act rather than a deviant one.

Common Types of Whips

When picking a whip for your kinky plays, it’s vital to learn about the common types of whips. This will ensure that the one you’re getting fits your skill level, as most whips are designed for professional kinksters.

Let’s start with the type for beginners, the flicker whip. It’s usually designed with a long handle and has a crop or strings at the end of it. What makes it suitable for beginners is that it’s reasonably easy to control, and you can master it easily.

Next is the bullwhip. We have this type in the shop, which is the Valentina Whip. Now, this type may look easy to use, but it’s actually hard to master— this is suitable for experienced doms only. Using this whip requires proper technique and timing, similar to casting a fishing line or throwing a baseball.

Last on the list is the signal whip. It’s pretty similar to the bullwhip but has a shorter length to it. Most whipping enthusiasts like this because of its short and sturdy build.

Care & Maintenance

As for whips’ general cleaning process, you can wash it off by wiping it with a damp towel with soap. For an easier and quicker clean, we suggest using a sex toy cleaner. Never submerge your whip in water; it will absorb the moisture, damaging its rigidity and texture. You should also never submerge your whips with oils.

As for special treatments, the only whip that needs conditioning is leather whips. Make sure to use a leather conditioner regularly to keep your toy in good shape.

Another thing to take note of when cleaning your whips is that you need to handle them carefully. Don’t excessively bend your bullwhip and signal whips. It could break the toy and may not be as strong as it was before.

Once you’re done, wipe it with a dry towel, then let it air dry for a few minutes. Store it inside a satin pouch/bag to minimize exposure to dust and dirt. Keep the bag inside a dry, cool, and secure spot.
