*Disclaimer* I was contacted by Bondara recently requesting a fair and honest review of their Black Leather Flogger Whip which was provided free in return.
The Leather Flogger Whip is an eye-catching statement flogger with its 7-inch chrome handle and striking (pun intended) array of leather tassels. It boasts an impressive 40 tails at a 17-inch length which is the most numerous now in my ever growing collection of thuddy things. It came packaged discreetly in an unmarked jiffy bag in which the flogger was contained within a simple stiff plastic bag without any tags or cardboard display aside from the above-pictured Bondara tag on the chain handle. Out of the bag, the flogger was pleasingly (for me) not too overwhelming in relation to leather smell. The leather chain body restraints from Bondara I reviewed earlier in the year took over two weeks to have their leather smell calm down before we could use them, so this was a relief to us – Mister has a senstive nose!
The handle is a little crude in design in my opinion. The welding spots in particular on the bulbous end gave it a rather industrial feel to it and the screw that attaches the chain loop to is a touch unsightly.
The tails themselves are lightly coarse to the touch, having a smooth side and a rougher underside you might just be able to pick up on in the pictures here, but they fall in a flexible manner, not being stiff in movement. They have a great ‘dry’ sound to them as you move the flogger slowly, letting the tails float in the air. The bulbous end to the handle is a nice addiction in allowing your hand to ‘anchor’ itself at the end of it as you use it to gather a momentum.
When we tried out the flogger for the first time, Mister found the chain loop to be quite cumbersome and removed it immediately. We, of course, put the flogger through its paces almost as soon as I unpacked it and Mister had me kneel on out leather armchair with my elbows on the back of the chair. Trailing the tails across my back felt absolutely delicious, the cool leather lightly catching at my skin now and then. Sound once again played heavily with my appreciation of this flogger as the dry noise of the tails on my back was a new experience for me. Mister began lightly to tap the tips of the tails on my lower back with little flicks which warmed me up and wriggle in response wanting to have more of a bite and sting with his next step.
Mister said he had no difficulty controlling the flogger and enjoyed the swooshing sound it made through the air. From my position, I loved the swish! He teased me by having it smack against his hand a few times to prewarn me of the sting it may have. I think the length of the flogger and the leather material led to it having a good ‘thud’ to its impact on my bottom which was very satisfying. I recall I only yelped in real dislike when Mister aimed a little off and he caught my pussy with a lash of the tails – one pain I really do not enjoy.
Then things got interesting.
Caught in the mood, Mister decided to…err…give me a tasselled tail. Very slick from getting hot and turned on by his floggings, he gently pushed the handle into my pussy making me moan rather nicely. I do love getting screwed. It was only after we finished that I wondered if a chrome handle was really the best thing to shove up there…My resulting conclusion after inspecting the flogger the morning after is: Probably not. Foolishly and to my discredit, I didn’t clean the flogger’s handle until the morning after and by which time I noticed what appeared to be a number of small rust spots, pictured below.
Upon questioning Mister, he said that chrome shouldn’t be something which corrodes like this and so I emailed Bondara with my embarrassing but necessary query to which they swiftly replied:
” The handle of this whip has quite a thin chrome plating on it but it does seem on this occasion that you’ve got one with some imperfections in the plating that have let moisture collect. Your partner’s right, it shouldn’t rust normally. We’ve been and checked the rest of the stock (in the ever-changing humidity of the warehouse) and these are all fine, so I can only assume that this is a one-off defect with the chrome plating. “
So that’s me told. Don’t get fucked with a chrome-handled flogger.
Aesthetically, this flogger is hit and miss with me. I love the look of the tassels and the colour is of a ‘nearly black’ that I find pleasing. The handle, unfortunately has let it down with the welding spots, unsightly screw and lack of imperviousness to my wetness (the latter being a personal fault perhaps) although the bulbous end redeems it with giving it a good purchase when swishing the tails when aiming. In action, the flogger is a firm Ooh yesin reaction to the thuddy impact as well as the more sharper stinging lashes.
