I have a love/hate relationship with Valentine’s Day. I really hate the whole Hallmark holiday BS, but ummm… I love candy and presents, duh! Regardless of your relationship with this holiday, there’s another February celebration that I think we can all get behind.
Before Cupid, February 13th – 15th was reserved for the ancient festivities of Lupercalia. Screw the history lesson, let’s get to the good stuff – it’s said that the Lupercalia celebration involved running naked through the streets and spanking anyone around! And the ladies were thrilled to bare their rears, believing that bum beatings aided with fertility and pregnancy.
“Shaggy thongs” – or floggers – were the whips of choice, typically made of animal hides and consisting of a cluster of tails. Though leather is still probably the most popular material for floggers, there are now a plethora of materials and styles that deliver an array of sensations.
Our Fetish Fantasy Series features some great classic flogger styles. Our super-soft suede Designer Flogger is perfect for beginners, as it’s lightweight and features a textured handle for easy grip. The suede falls are great for teasing, tickling, and light lashing. If you prefer a bit more bite on your behind, check out our Beaded Cat-O-Nine Tails. This vinyl flogger features a soft backside on each blade so the lash won’t be too harsh, though the blunt edges still provide a savory sting.
Once you’ve become acquainted with light flogging, you might be craving some more powerful play. Our Fetish Fantasy Elite Silicone Bondage Whip, made from our medical-grade Elite Silicone, is a bit heavier than our classic floggers. The elasticity of the silicone provides a stinging sort of lash, like the snap of a rubber band. If pain is your game, then you’ll love our Fetish Fantasy Extreme Chain-O-Pain. These heavy-duty ball chain falls are easy to swing and pack a serious whack! They’re also great for temperature play and can create electrical sensations when used in a flogging motion.
Want more bang for your buck? Check out our multi-functional floggers. Our Icicles No. 38 has been the talk of the town lately, with rave reviews and a rank on EdenFantasys’ Top 10 Dildos and Dongs. It features genuine bull leather tresses with a unique hand-blown glass handle that doubles as a dong! The elegant textured swirls provide added stimulation and can be easily heated or cooled for tempting temperature play. For more penetrable play, our Fetish Fantasy Series Anal Bead Whip features a handle of five textured beads that turns these thin tresses into the perfect tail! Couple it with our Fetish Fantasy Series Beginner’s Bit Gag for some pretty pony role-play!
