I find Flogging to be cathartic and as soon as MrH tried it on me I was hooked. The feel of the falls hitting my back, the thud or the gentle tickle. Within minutes I’m relaxed and the outside world fades away.
We have a pair of poi leather floggers and a solid handled suede one. In all honesty I prefer the suede one. The leather one has a scratchy feel that keeps the main sensation leaned towards pain not pleasure.
MrH tends to flog my shoulder area and I do prefer impact on my bottom. My derrière is fleshier than my shoulders. But that’s not to say I dislike it. After all if I didn’t want it I could say no, or ask him to limit his attentions to my backside.
We attended a flogging workshop by the amazing Aemilia Hawk who incidentally made our poi floggers. Her tips on safety were excellent and while she made her point well she kept it light and entertaining too. MrH did a lot of research on safety before he ventured into impact play and so already knew most of what she said, especially with regards to impacting on unprotected parts of the body (essentially below the rib cage front and back). If there’s no bones to protect the organs you can cause serious harm.
If you ever have the opportunity to see her I highly recommend it.
