Review: Bondage Boutique Hog Hide Twelve Tail Flogger Whip

04Oct12

This was the item I was most excited about from my recent Lovehoney spree. Until now, we’d been playing with this smaller and gentle suede flogger – it was a fantastic starting point for us, and it really bridged the gap between a little bare-handed spanking and more serious, more intense scenes. But after getting a thorough thrashing from a big brute of a flogger at a play party, we both felt the need to upgrade to something a bit meaner.

And with this twelve-tailed leather flogger, it’s very much a case of ‘be careful what you wish for’…

Bigger, longer, sturdier, heavier and rougher than anything we’d played with before, the Hog Hide Flogger isn’t for the faint of heart, or delicate of arse. It is mean. But before we get to the fun part; the basics…

The black was out of stock so we got the red; a nice change from the rest of our all-black kit. It’s real leather — thin strips are braided into twelve individual tails; secured at the bottom with thread. The very end of each tail has loose ends – this contributes to the sting in the tail! The handle is a wooden dowel with a wrapped leather finish, and a handy arm strap/hook at the top for storage and extra security. It’s 31 inches long in total, so it looks sufficiently menacing.

But what’s it like to play with? I asked my resident Dom how it handles.

He was playing Minecraft. In between planting cactuses, he said that it was fun, but he had a few niggles. It’s a bit too light, and could do with more heft – it delivers a stingy slap, but thuddy pain is not really achievable with this flogger. Being accustomed to the smaller suede flogger and using his hands, he didn’t like the distance between us when using the Hog Hide Flogger. The tails are so long that you need to stand way back to aim it properly, he says, but this is probably something he’ll get used to in time.

On the plus side, it’s versatile. The fringed ends allow for light stings, while the braided tails deliver a meaner thwack. It’s long enough that it can be doubled over for a more thuddy impact. It’s “big and scary looking” and it makes great noises when it’s swung, he says.

In fact, all of the positives of this one seem to be in how I react to it. The sound of the leather flying through the air gives me butterflies, and the sensation on impact is stingy and complex. The braids, although they’re flexible and made of soft leather, do scratch in a delicious way. The pain intensifies after each swing into an overall heat that takes a while to go away.

In short, it packs a mean punch… actually, more of a bite than a punch. And it makes me squirm to look at it. Which is probably the best thing you could say about an impact toy like this.

The verdict? It’s a good quality, good value product at just under €25 with free delivery. He’s still looking for something that can do a bit more damage, but I love it – I think it’ll make a great addition to our arsenal of evil, even if it’s not quite our ideal flogger.
