I have finally mastered this technique and find it fascinating. I would be interested in the thoughts of subs who have been on the receiving end of Florentine flogging and how in their opinion the feelings and sensations compare to the traditional one handed technique.
what type of floggers are you using, mine have Handles and i find it complicated
so i ordered 2 new floggers better suited for Florentine, these new floggers have a ball instead on the normal handle
I suspect once you get comfy with the rhythm then you’ll find it won’t matter to you as much what kind of floggers you use. When I was first trying to learn it, it felt like the least little thing could throw me off. Once it was down pat, it got so I could probably use a baseball bat in one hand and a feather duster in the other, and it still wouldn’t matter. It’s just something the brain needs to wrap itself around.
In case the insight helps, I find the greater the mass or length of the flogger, the more you substitute wrist for arm motion… basically just expand the radius of the rotation. And how you strike is also related to the radius.. the smaller the flogger, the easier to concentrate on a small area, larger, the easier to expand the strikes over a larger area. At least that’s been the case for me.
I felt Florentine flogging for the first time Sunday (it was with fire though),and found it was almost hypnotic with the rhythm. Now, since it was fire floggers, they make noise, so music would have been worthless, but with regular floggers music helps me get to subspace… even better if there are NO words.
