Guide to Whips for BDSM Beginners

Whips are a great option if you want to indulge in some spanking fun. You have a lot of styles and different materials to choose from. It is a good idea to be familiar with them before you decide to get one. You will also need to be aware of the safety precautions to take when you are using one.

Whips consist of a handle, the body, and the cracker. Some whips have a fall protecting them. These instruments could be stiff for a straight spank. The flexible ones are handled in a special way for them to work.

If you are a beginner, it is a good idea to go for a sturdier whip instead of a flexible one. You should also get a shorter one and its length shouldn’t exceed four feet.

The stock whip is probably the easiest one to begin with. They are not as diverse and don’t allow much play. Even so they are very easy to handle making them a great starting point to work on your technique. You just need to move it as if you were fishing and so it is as easy as catching fish. The handle is stiff and this allows for greater control over the whip.

The bull whip is designed for people with a lot of experience. So, beginners should stay away from them. The difference between this and the stock whip are the handle and the thong as these are made of the same plait. Effectively the handle continues to the thong.

The blacksnake whip model is similar to the bull whip. But the handle offers a bit more flexibility. They are short, fast, and slippery but hit hard. So, again, it is only for experts.

The quirts look a bit like the stock whip but its tail is forked. It is small, slow and doesn’t hit very hard. If your partner is a bit intimidated with this whole whipping thing then this could be a great choice.

When it comes to materials, the choices are nylon, leather and rubber. The nylon whips can last a very long time and are pretty easy to maintain. Basically you don’t need to do anything extra special to them. They are also easy to control because they are hard. These offer a snappy hit.

Leather whips can also last a very long time. They could even last forever if you take good care of them and maintain the material. You should be aware leather whips offer a very strong hit your partner will definitely feel. Make sure to practice before using it as leather can be a bit harder to work with.

Rubber whips will bounce nicely on your lover’s skin. This is an extreme material. It is painful and can leave some bruises and scrapes, so they are not recommended for beginners. You should only use a rubber flogger if you already have a lot of experience.

Most whips are relatively easy to care for. Be sure to clean them with warm water and antibacterial soap. As an alternative you can also use some toy cleaner. Whatever you do, never soak your whip in a bowl of water because you can damage your toy if you do. Likewise, never put them in oil.

Leather whips need a little bit more care. You need to treat them well because they are prone to dryness. If this happens, then they could lose effectiveness. Don’t use light oils to condition leather whips because they could bring harmful bacteria. These whips should be placed in a dark, dry and cool place to maintain their best condition.
