A Bondage Whip is essentially strips of material (usually leather) attached to a handle and is used in the BDSM world by the dominant partner to flog or beat the submissive partner. It is an essential tool in the BDSM enthusiasts toy box. If you haven't yet experienced the sensation of erotic spanking, a bondage whip is a great choice to begin your pleasure/pain adventure. The amount of pain that is generated from a bondage whip varies in intensity and is based on its materials (soft versus hard). The impact of the whipping will vary subject to the velocity inflicted by the person holding the whip. In bondage play, its important to have a safe word, and to communicate with your partner on your boundaries and limitations.
