    I've been DESPERATE to buy myself a flogger- and I think I've discovered which one I want- well, it's down to the last two, but going over the various item pages on LH, they've got lovely pictures of these floggers- against a completely white-out background. And apart from not getting a real sense of size from these pics (yeah, a 9 inch one looks almost identical in shape to the 30 inch one...), I dont think they give a real impression of how the flogger feels.

    In my opinion, something of this sort of bondage nature- a flogger in particular, has to really feel correct in order for it to work.

    I'm just wondering, if anyone who has brought a flogger agrees, and possibly if you have any pictures you've already taken. I'm not wanting to look at provocative or explicit pics, just the flogger itself in the real world, in a real situation. Just something which gives a feel of the whip itself. The Lelo brand I know has a set up 'real world' pic, which is quite good, but I'm wondering if there are any proud owners who want to show their floggers off?

    Ahhh, thanks!

    Hmmm, yeah, okay so no piccies in threads does make things a little difficult. I was wondering though, if people do have a flogger/flogger photos on their profile, they could say here if they do?

    I mean, I've trauled through a couple of dozen accounts based on reviewers of floggers, and only come up two people who have ever photographed them. You cant tell from the outside if people have pics uploaded on their profiles, let alone what they are.

    But thanks, Ork- I'll keep a look out for that!

    I think I have this one- http://www.lovehoney.co.uk/product.cfm?p=15708 in purple.

    I would have taken a pic for you but I've misplaced it somewhere. It's very well made and bigger than I assumed.

    Is there anything that you want to know or is it purely the visual aspect? The reviews are quite good with general info and how it feels.

    Also, I'm sure MM doesn't mind (hope not) but she has some pictures of them in her profile. They show off the same flogger very well. http://www.lovehoney.co.uk/community/members/masquerademinx/

    I went and took a pic of ours, only to realise that it's not available anymore! It's a Bondage Boutique one and we love it. Here's the pic anyway, with cat for scale!

    Ah, I found it- Bondage Boutique Luxury Steel-Handled Suede Flogger Whip&reviewid=26634#customer_reviews

    Shame it was discontinued. I love the combination of suede and the metal!

    Thanks. =)

    Ps. You're not a bad reviewer at all.

    Yeah, that is one of the two that I'm dying to have. I'm a little unsure about getting it in red or black- I'm very much into bright colours if I'm going for a coloured anything, so I think that purple might not be for me. But thats one of the things I'm trying to figure out. I have this kink for a whip- which hasn't been proven or acted upon yet, so I'm actually trying to figure out exactly what I want. I think a red might be lovely and bright and eye catching, yet when I fantasise about a whip or anything involving one which takes my interest, that tends to be black. And it 'feels' like it should be right in a black.

    I'm also after a long flogger. Both from a practical POV, and also primarilly visual POV. It doesnt look right for me if it's not long and threatening! However, of course as a novice, I dont want something that is going to be inapropriate for a newbie- I'm not into pain- in fact, I have the worst skin-pain threshold you have ever seen! Which sounds completely riddiculous for someone on the hunt for a whip, but that's why I'm taking so much time going over this. Tis why I've actually for now ruled out the BB hog-hide flogger, and the Cat 'o 9.

    No, I've whittled it down to two floggers by BB:

    Velvet flogger W PVC handle - http://www.lovehoney.co.uk/product.cfm?p=15708 (Prob black, poss red.)
    Luxuary XL flogger - http://www.lovehoney.co.uk/product.cfm?p=15735 (most likely in black).

    If you want a brighter colour then the red/black option may be the best. I think the red also adds the element of danger and passion into it too. I really like the purple one. I found it really pretty but not too bright, if that makes sense.

    You don't have to worry too much about pain either- with floggers they can be used subtley and more for sensory play as well as a beginner's intro to the element of whipping and pain.

    As for those 2 options you linked- I see a clear difference in size. The PVC handle one is bigger than the luxury one. Also, depends on whether you prefer studs or PVC.

    I got my flogger in the Bondage mystery bag but was happy with it. I think I'd prefer a smaller one though.

    That looks stunning. Love the handle. How much was it?

    @shellyboo- yeah, I think I remember that one when I first joined LH. BTW, love the feline! I bet he enjoys watching that thing get trailed around- not that you'd want any of those suede tails shortened any by him!

    @Nymeria Yeah, MasqueradeMinx was the first photo I've found of the floggers- and bloody hell does she have a great collection! I absolutly adore her photos- I think its absolutly great to see an array of toys all laid out in one go. Wow! MM, if you're around.... LOVE YOU!!

    The handle of the PVC BB flogger actually looks quite nice and rugged. I know most of the reviews say that that also feels pretty good in terms of quality- but what are your thoughts. Most other bloggers (apart from oddly enough the one Shellyboo has) have suede handles- but I also wonder whether there is a range in terms of the quality of those, too.

    Oh, crikey, I'm going tdetective now, lol! Definatly do not need to overthink this- there are only two floggers that have the right size and 'softness' I need, both with excellent reviews (inc for quality)- so WHY am I scrutinising this? Ignore me, I type too much!

    @Ork- Looking forward to seeing them!

    Wow, this thread's suddenly gotten busy- thanks so much guys!

    Ok, I have found the flogger! The handle isn't as rugged as you might think, it's just a snakeprint PVC tape wrapped around. It's still a very high quality item though. and the tails are actually really really long. Almost double the length of the handle. =)

    How would you want a photo? lol

    Hmmm, red/black- there's another BB flogger thats both red and black! I can see the attraction there, but for me I think it belongs firmly in the hand of a court jester!

    Yeah, the purple in the picture does look a little garish, I have to admit! Its quite unique because its the only non-red coloured flogger on LH, I believe, so it's nice they've gone for something a little more respectable then florescent colourings! That purple does look really good- more of a colour you'd associate with luxuary; a shade which isn't gonna burn your eyes!

    And ahhhhh, thanks for putting my mind at rest! I know the sensations they deliver is all dependent on how much force is put into the swing, and how they state in reviews and on guides how the suede tails are so much softer for little sting, but it's nice to get some more reassurance. And wow, yeah, I hadn't thought about trailing teh tails, and sensation play. That sounds really fun!

    Yeah, with the size difference, thats another weird thing. They are the two largest suede floggers, but I do keep going back and forth about what length would be my preference. I literally will be leaning towards the PVC handle for a couple of days, and then the next day, I decide it's way to long, and want the luxuary one. And then, several days after that, I'm back to the PVC. I've measured it out with a material tape measure, and gotten a visual for size, but it's just so hard to decide!!

    I absolutly ADORE the idea of the grab bags, I think they are fantastic- have never caught one yet, though. I dont think I'd ever be able to go in for a bondage one, though, because literally the only think I am interested in is floggers. Not really into anything else, clamps, or blindfolds or dressing up. Just floggers. I'd be getting a womans toys one, however, and maybe swap someone for an unwanted flogger, if thats possible? Depends on when they're available again.

    Ohhhh, WOW!!!!!! Okay, wow.... I think I'm drooling!

    Urm... I dont mind- I dont know! Whichever way you think is best! Shit- for someone with a problem of yapping on, you've stumped me there!

    Oh my goodness, I can't wait till the 27th comes round and they have them back in stock!!! At least it gives me enough time to make my decision and stick to it.

    ho, fuck.... thats.... er.... thats wow......

    Shit that really is long.... fuck, thats gorgeous!! I'm seriously gonna have to consider whether I want that length first- possibly a few inches shorter, but theres no doubt in my mind that I'm gonna have to have one of those 27' floggers. The two that I've narrowed down are actually fairly different in terms of appearance and length, I dont see why I cant get both.

    Well, there is one major reason, for now- my budget. Wont stretch that far just now, but sometime in the future, lets hope for maybe more! I'm still working on a student's budget mentality! But, I'm unwavering- I have to get one of those floggers in the next month at least. I'm decided- all those photos- and thank you so much Nymeria, you're so wonderful to take those for me- just really solidify that it's really something that I have to get. Just need to figure it out! And decide on colour! Thanks so much for your help, hun, I appreciate it!

    ps- hey, just curious, but how much does it weigh?

    SN, thought you might be interested in this-

    Sunshine2009 - http://www.lovehoney.co.uk/community/members/sunshine2009/

    In Adopt a Toy thread. It's the same one in my photos (colour and all). Might be a good deal for just the cost of postage.

    As for the weight- I couldn't give a definite answer just that it's not too heavy or light, in my opinion.

    Hmmmmm, great!

    And yeah, I've tried contacting Sunshine2009 several times now, via email and on the forum, but no sucess. I've had a look at their profile- they haven't been active for about eight or nine months now, by the look of it. It's been... incredibly frustrating.
