Hey all. My girlfriend has mentioned flogging in the past and I was curious about a few things. What would be the best “starter” flog to get? What do I look for in a quality flog? I’m somewhat familiar with the technique but what are some good resources for learning? Thanks in advance.March 3, 2015 at 4:16 am #3074
I’ll see your CrankyOldBastard and see you a Sovran, especially his TopShelf models. 😉 But seriously, if you want quality, there are many a fine maker out there, but in my experience, cheap ain’t good, and good ain’t cheap. Ask folks in your local groups or functions you may attend to give you pointers on learning, and makers, and types…most folks who love flogging will be more than happy to go on at length about their favorites and share proper techniques to study. Just be sure you look, but don’t touch their floggers without permission first!March 3, 2015 at 4:18 am #3075
I see you are in BDSM Mentors group. i found a local guy who mentored me when I was learning, it was a great help. There is also a book named “Flogging!”, by Joseph Bean you may be interested in. Explains some of the “science” behind it and more.
Also, I started a joke group named Floggers Anonymous which ended up having over 150 members. Flogger addicts and makers alike. Come check it out if you like. If this post isn’t appropriate, please feel free to delete it admin.March 3, 2015 at 4:20 am #3076
I would recommend a mixed fall flogger. They have the most versatility, well balanced and preferred by most- experienced and new. with elk and a dense cow hide. The cow falls can be cut slightly shorter to reduce sting or opposite to increase.
I may be able to further assist you in regards to what sensations you may enjoy more than others. I performed a study over the past year to see how people feel stimulation differently than one another. This helped me learn how people explain a sensation or what simple sensation feels like to them to further help me tell what type of flogger they would probably prefer.
Feel free to send me a private message at any time if you have any more questions.

I just had a lesson. It was a trip. I’m very good with my hands, like using tools, have good dexterity etc., it is NOT an easy thing to do right. The main issue is “wrap around”. It is surprisingly difficult (at least for me) to get the right technique, control the weight of the blows and to hit the target correctly. Some of it is non-obvious. I am planning to get more instruction and supervision before doing it on my own. The last thing you want to do is mess it all up, hurt and scare your partner because if they don’t have a good time it could be a downer. Also I strongly suspect that there is a learning curve for the person receiving.
