I am like you, i love to be flogged. I have recently found that i absolutely love dragon tails as well depending on how they are used. The only one i have experienced was leather. I am not brave enough to venture out to cable ones and honestly im abit to scared for those. Im sure there are different materials such as suede or leather that you can use. Its alittle different effect thana flogger. It has more of a sting to it, but like i said it all depends on how its used.
As for as finding one or making one, im not sure. I have been looking for one for awhile now and havent found one that i truly like yet. It would be interesting to see what others have to say about things too. 🙂
