Flogging Techniques/

Tips Don't try and do all the work or fight against the flogger. Simplify the motion of the stroke as much as possible. Use the weight of momentum and the leverage of the arm/flogger combination as much as possible. In other words let the whip do the work. You can also lean forwards and backwards during the course of a stroke to put your weight into the stroke or to take some of it out.

 

If the tails of your flogger tend to splay out too much on impact you can slightly twist the your hand halfway through the stroke to help bring the tails into line with each other.

 

For a lighter stroke, you can slow the speed of the flogger as it reaches the top of it's arc, and let the tails fall gently on the bottom.

 

Generally, the more directly the tips strike the bottom, the thuddier the sensation is. When the tips of the flogger tails brush against the bottom, and do so quickly, the sensation is often stingier.

 

The tips of the flogger, as they strike, convey the greatest force of the stroke. Thus, when one is flogging heavily, it is helpful to strike in such a way that the tips land first, this will also help avoid wrapping, which occurs when the middle of the tails strikes a good area, but the tips (which land later) wrap around to strike over the shoulder, around the torso, etc. This is generally considered bad form.

 

It's difficult to judge what strokes and floggers to use on a bottom at a particular time if you don't know the bottom very well or if your just starting out in flogging. The key is to ensure proper communication beforehand (negotiation), and proper feedback verbal and non-verbal during the flogging (hence you might not want to use a gag when starting out or with someone new). But as with most things BDSM related. GO SLOW. I know we all want instant gratification nowadays but going slow will pay off in the long run. And it will show as well.

 

Most references and teachers will tell you to swing from the shoulder. But another technique can be used. Instead of grasping the flogger at the balance point, hold onto the knob at the rear of the handle -- and proceeded to spin the flogger, mostly using her wrist. It has a nice fluid motion, and seems to have a lot of control and flexibility without waving your arm all over the place. I've been told that the wrist was never meant to be worked that hard, and I've noticed many people's wrists gets sore very quickly when they use this technique. But it certainly looks nice, and I still play with it from time to time... you might want to do the same. But may have to use it sparingly to avoid wrist injury.

 

Flogging Strokes

Okay lets get to it now. Flogging strokes (how to throw the flogger) can allow for an artistic flair, if your so inclined. The following are a collection of some common flogging strokes.

 

One basic stroke is the Overhand Stroke. It consists of striking overhand, with the palm toward the bottom. Throw the flogger back over the shoulder of the arm your holding the flogger in (be sure to grip the handle, don't want a flogger flying off behind you somewhere). Holding your elbow higher at this point can help increase the arc and speed of the flogger but isn't necessary. Now throw the flogger forward in an arcing motion by straightening your arm at the elbow and allowing the weight of the flogger to carry it down. This is a great motion to use to allow the tails to gently splay across the body. But if you increase the speed of your arm it can become a very powerful stroke. You can continue this stroke in a windmill fashion by rotation your arm when it reaches the lowest part of the arc (pointing at the floor) and continuing up around for another stroke.

 

Another basic stroke is the forehand stroke. It's much like using a tennis racquet. It consists of a sidearmed stoke with the palm toward the bottom. Starting with holding your arm out to the side and bring your arm across the front of your body. This naturally leads in to the next basic stroke.

 

The backhand stroke. This can consist of an overhand backhand stroke or a straight backhand stroke. The overhand backhand stroke consists of striking overhand with the palm towards you. With the flogger over the shoulder of the opposite arm your holding the flogger in. Throw the flogger forward in an arcing motion by straightening your arm at the elbow and allowing the weight of the flogger to carry it down. Keeping the elbow high will help increase the arc and speed of the flogger but personal preference should prevail. As in all cases.

 

The straight backhand stroke is very similar but instead of starting with the flogger over the opposite shoulder it merely starts out across the opposite side of the body your holding the flogger in. With the palm towards you straighten your elbow in the direction of your target and allow the tails to come around to the other side.

 

The underhand forehand and underhand backhand strokes are merely a variation of the forehand and backhand strokes. By starting with the flogger handle pointing down to begin with and bringing it up. These strokes take more skill and strength than those above and can require lots of practice to get them right.

 

The punching or flicking stroke, which may be overhand or backhand, but includes flipping the wrist to provide more of a sensation of the tails going straight into their target, rather than striking them obliquely. This is commonly perceived as thuddier than other strokes, and is valuable for providing a different sensation, as well as allowing strokes in body areas (especially lower ones) that might otherwise be difficult to strike. It is often easier to learn the punching stroke if you use your non-flogging hand as a guide for the flogger tails as they begin their motion. Draw the tails of your flogger through your free hand and snap the piece like you did towels in that high school locker room.

 

The figure eight stroke is a combination of strokes on each pass. Forehand and backhand, overhand and overhand backhand, etc. You'll find it works your muscles more evenly and is a bit easier for longer flogging sessions...plus it has a certain fluidity and flair to it.

 

Start with a normal forehand as you've already practiced. As you come down towards your target, however, don't go straight down; instead, cross in front of yourself. Rather than bringing your flogger down along your right side, bring it down to your left (for the right handed person). Now swing up on the left and cross back; you'll find your palm naturally turns for a backhand shot. Swing down and back to the right, then repeat the eight.

 

This one will probably feel awkward at first. One key is not to travel back as far as you do for a forehand or backhand swing alone. Just let the flogger follow a gentle figure eight in front of you. With practice you'll find you can hit the same spot with the same intensity on both the forehand and backhand strokes.

 

As you're practicing the various strokes, keep an eye on the target and what's happening to it. Are you seeing marks that extend from the center around the edges, a clear sign of wrapped tails? Be careful to watch how your tails land and adjust accordingly.

 

While not exactly a stroke spinning or pinwheeling a flogger can provide a gentle breeze, a fast caressing touch, or a barrage of stings. The technique is simple: hold the flogger's handle firmly, and whirl the tails around in a tight circle using your wrist. At first you might find it easier to get the tails spinning, then move them into contact with your target.

 

You may find you have lots of problems with spinning; don't blame yourself until you try a different flogger. Some just don't seem to want to cooperate, tangling their tresses around the handle or twisting around each other. Thicker, softer tails seem to exhibit this problem the most.

 

The line stroke is also a combination of strokes on each pass. Forehand to backhand (a side to side motion), and overhand to underhand (a up and down motion). In both the stoke merely moves in a straight line from one stroke to the other.
