How We Test floggers

We’re a team of 265 sex toy testers and 13 sex toy experts.

To find the very best floggers, our testers tried and reviewed 138 different products in this category.

Bad or even just mediocre floggers didn’t make the list!

In total, we’ve thoroughly tested and reviewed 801 toys over the past 6 years.

We even lab-tested some to get objective data.

How Did I Test the Best Floggers

Things to Consider 

Buying a BDSM flogger seems simple enough, but there are actually a couple of different factors that you’ll want to look into! Here are some things you should consider (and why they matter!).

  • Number of Falls – If you’re after a “thuddy” sensation then you’ll want to opt for a flogger with more falls. For a “stingy” sensation, fewer falls are better. The final sensation is determined by the overall weight of the toy as well as the swing itself.
  • Width of the Falls – Wider falls will weigh more, allowing the flogger to feel “thuddy” with less effort. “Stingy” sensations are still possible, but they will require a lot more force. Floggers with very thin falls won’t be able to feel “thuddy”, instead being limited to providing “stingy” sensations.
  • Tips of the Falls – Many floggers simply have plain tips, but you can also buy ones with tip designs. Different tips will change how the flogger feels, often adding a certain sharpness to each swing.
  • Braided – Braided floggers have braided falls. Since the falls are held together, this prevents them from accidentally spreading out when swung, ensuring the falls hit exactly where you’re aiming!
  • Handle Size – It’s important that you can easily hold onto your new flogger. Aim for a handle that’s big enough to control but not so large that it’s hard to hold in your hand. Remember, different materials will feel differently in your hand so you’ll want to consider that as well!

A Closer Look

Bigger and bolder than our intermediate suede whip, the extra-long tails on this flogger give a wider range of impact for increased sensations. Added weight also increases the intensity of each swing, varying your lover’s cries from a whimper to a scream. Trail the tails over bare flesh to excite the nerve-endings and make them super-sensitive, or bring the pain and swing that whip against the fleshiest parts of their body for a deliciously different feeling.

Pros

  • Studded handle
  • Wrist loop
  • Nice and long

Cons

  • Too soft for some
  • May feel overly long

Why I Chose It

The Bondage Boutique Advanced Extra Long Suede Flogger is a great all-round flogger for a variety of reasons. Not only does the suede feel fantastic and soft, but the tails of the flogger are nice and long, allowing it to have a good ‘swish’ to it. It also has a studded handle, which feels great in your hand and ensures that you get a good grip on it. The wrist loop at the bottom also helps keep it in your hand, so you don’t drop it. Some may find the Bondage Boutique Advanced Extra Long Suede Flogger to be a little TOO long, especially if they want a flogger that they can control more directly. Other than that, though, I can’t really see too many downsides to this beauty of a flogger!

A Closer Look

Are you seeking a luxurious, heavy-duty BDSM flogger that will give you intense sensations and loud spanks? Then the DOMINIX Deluxe Leather Flogger is the perfect toy for you! This exquisite product is made of high-quality leather, and it features a sturdy handle that provides a secure grip, allowing you to control the flogger with precision and confidence.

This leather flogger will adapt to any BDSM scenario, whether it’s a light sensual teasing or more intense impact play; its adjustable intensity allows you to explore various levels of stimulation!

Pros

  • Made with durable materials

Cons

Why I Chose It

In conclusion, the DOMINIX Deluxe Leather Flogger is a really good leather flogger that offers a really high quality for such an affordable price. It’s a perfect size and design for more heavy-duty scenarios, but at the same time, it’s designed to feel comfortable around the wrist, and the impact it provides is not extremely strong. So you are in intermediate impact play, this is a perfect choice, but if you prefer something more extreme, you might want to look at some whips!

A Closer Look

This elk hide flogger is not for beginner users – at 30 inches in length, this toy is best suited to dominants and dominatrixes! The elk hide has been dyed black for that ultra-authentic BDSM look, while the fronds are spongy and thick for maximum sensations upon contact. The intricately detailed handle is made with Nylon cords for a tight grip, while the accompanying leather wristband provides a secure hold during play. Given its formidable length, this flogger is ideal for punishment play and perfect if you love a good thudding noise from your flogger. Certainly a luxe pick for a seasoned BDSM enthusiast, this flogger is also a pretty pricey investment, coming in at under $200.

Pros

  • Thudding contact sound
  • Thick, elk hide fronds
  • 30 inches long
  • Wrist strap for easy grip
  • Available in various colors

Cons

  • Super expensive
  • Very susceptible to damage and deterioration from dirt and bacteria

Why I Chose It

This elk hide flogger is a luxury investment, and best suited to an experienced BDSM enthusiast who wants to add a bit of novelty and variety to their flogger collection. Made with luxury elk hide, this flogger makes for a a gorgeous statement piece in any BDSM dungeon, and is ideal for some fun punishment play with a sub. Given its length, this flogger is not suitable for beginners – it’s so long you’d trip over it trying to figure out how to use it! There are a couple of other things to note with this toy: it’s important to keep leather cleaner away from it to prevent damaging the hide, and it’s important to keep it free from dirt and bacteria, as the material is delicate and can can deteriorate if not properly looked after.

A Closer Look

If you love teasing during your BDSM sessions, or if you’re simply just a curious beginner interested in sensation play, this metal flogger is ideal for testing the waters. This spanking toy is amazing when combined with temperature play, as it comes with thin, long metal chains for more intense sensations – dip them in warm or cold water to drive your partner wild and build arousal. This metal flogger isn’t a traditional leather flogger – it’s not a spanking paddle, but it has its place in any BDSM toy box nonetheless. Reserve this chain flogger for the sessions where you feel like playing nice – at least for a while!

Pros

  • Temperature-sensitive
  • Ideal for slow-building arousal
  • Perfect for teasing

Cons

  • Not ideal if you're looking for a flogger for thudding sounds or general spanking
  • Might be on the heavy side, so unsuitable if you have strength issues in your hands

Why I Chose It

This metal flogger might look intimidating with its 150 metal balls, but it’s actually one of the most beginner-friendly toys in this round-up. It’s not a sex flogger designed for pain play or punishment, so it’s ideal for a BDSM newbie to try their hand at temperature play and sensation play. Use this metal flogger by running the metal balls along your partner’s skin either warm or cold – you’ll build arousal and heighten sensations, while your partner will enjoy the smooth feel of the metal balls and the thrilling sensations of sublime submission!

A Closer Look

This Saffron Faux Leather beaded flogger is a little unique: not only is it super lightweight, making it ideal for those with limited hand strength, but the braided fronds make for varied sensations during any lashing or punishment play. The braided fronds are made with soft faux leather, while the sturdy, bubbled handle provides an extra firm grip for those who want a secure hold on their flogger. This flogger is also ideal if you’re looking for a super long flogger: at 24 inches in length, it’s not particularly travel-friendly, but ideal as a long flogger for body tickling and lashing.

Pros

  • Beaded design for enhanced sensations
  • Ideal for punishment
  • Super lightweight
  • Vegan-friendly
  • Long flogger
  • Wrist strap for secure grip

Cons

  • Some users find this flogger too lightweight - you might need to exercise slightly more force to get this flogger to thwack correctly
  • Bubble handle might be fiddly for some

Why I Chose It

This beaded flogger is certainly unique in its design and style, but there are some considerable downsides to this toy. Firstly, the flogger is super lightweight: this might be great if you have limited strength in your hands, but if you’re looking for a heavier “thudding” flogger, this isn’t the one you’re looking for.  Secondly, some find that the fronds are so lightweight that the sensations are limited, whether it’s punishment play or light tickling. Overall, if you’re specifically looking for a braided flogger, this might be your pick. If not, one of the other floggers in our round-up is probably more suited to your needs.

A Closer Look

If you’ve never used a finger flogger before, it might just be your new go-to method for spanking and punishment play! Using a finger flogger means that your movements are swifter and easier, especially if you struggle with sensitivity or mobility in your fingers, or if you struggle to maintain a grip on your flogger. Finger floggers are also great for simply adding flair to your movements! This finger flogger grip by The Stockroom is compatible with all Stockroom flogger heads and is perfect for versatile play. Simply attach your chosen interchangeable flogger head and you’re ready to go! The diameter of this finger flogger is 2 inches, so it’ll fit most fingers with some considerable wiggle room for most.

 

 

Pros

  • Ideal for versatility
  • Great if you have limited hand strength
  • Adds flair to your movements
  • Roomy diameter - space for most sized fingers

Cons

  • Might not fit other brand flogger heads
  • Need to buy the flogger head separately
  • More costly than a traditional flogger

Why I Chose It

Using a finger flogger is a great alternative for those who don’t have the hand strength or grip to hold onto a flogger for long periods of time; it’s also a great way to diversify your flogger collection with various adjustable heads. This finger flogger is comfortable to wear, with 2 inches in internal diameter leaving enough space for most fingers, as well as enough room to ensure that it remains comfortable during play. This toy will add a rapidity to your spanking that itsn’t possible when using your hands – why not put one of these finger floggers on each hand for some hardcore punishment play? One downside to this finger flogger is the price – for the same price (or even for less) you can find traditional with the same quality of design. Nonetheless, if you value versatility and flair, this finger flogger is ideal.

A Closer Look

If you own a wand massager, you might already be aware that you can enhance the wand experience with some fun wand attachments. However, you might not have been aware that you can even use your wand vibrator to enhance your BDSM fun with a flogger! Introducing the KinkLab Electro-Whip wand attachment: this BDSM flogger attaches itself to the head of any compatible KinkLab magic wand, providing elctroshock sensations and some serious stinging! This electric flogger isn’t suitable for beginners, so if you’re new to the concept of electrosex, you’ll want to get clued up before testing out this advanced sex toy.

Pros

  • Shocks and stings
  • Compatible with most wands
  • Various intensity settings
  • 10-tail mini flogger

Cons

  • Not for beginners
  • Not recommended if you're not a fan of pain play

Why I Chose It

If you’re a seasoned fan of the classic magic wand, you’ll be sure to enjoy the intense electro-shock sensation from this flogger wand attachment. The good news is that this attachment should be compatible with most full-sized magic wands, so you shouldn’t need to invest in a new wand to enjoy this toy. Note: this is not a beginner-friendly flogger. It’s important to be careful when using this attachment, and I wouldn’t recommend using this if you’ve never used a wand attachment before. Keep this flogger away from water when using it with your magic wand.

A Closer Look

This 20″ Thong Whip with spiked tails is the most extreme and advanced-level flogger in our round-up: this toy is absolutely not for beginners, and should be used carefully! This flogger has 12 strands of authentic black leather and each is adorned with a spiky metal tail – perfect for stinging if you’re into punishment play! If you’re not into pain-play, you can also use these metal spikes to slowly drag along the skin for enhanced sensations. At 20 inches long, you’re sure to have fun with this toy – it even comes with a D-ring which is perfect for adding to a belt for easy access during play.

Pros

  • Metal spikes for stinging pain-play
  • Ideal for advanced-level users
  • D-ring for easy belt attachment
  • Authentic BDSM look

Cons

  • Not for beginners

Why I Chose It

If you’re an advanced level BDSM practitioner, this spiked flogger could provide some thrilling and exhilerating sensation play – but it’s certainly not for novices! You could also use this flogger for pain-play if you’re into that kind of thing – but you’ll need to be careful with this toy. The metal spikes at the end of the leather strands could easily puncture the skin and cause some discomfort if not used correctly – and not the good kind of discomfort! However, if you’re a fan of the authentic BDSM look, this 100% real leather flogger could make for an advanced addition to your flogger collection.

Flogger Materials 

You’ll have a fairly wide variety of materials to choose from when selecting a new flogger.

Here are your options!

  • Leather – Leather floggers can vary in stiffness, with some producing a sharp stinging sensation upon impact.
  • Faux Leather – Perfect for vegans who like the look but hate the product, faux leather tends to provide more “bite” than a bruise.
  • Silicone – Sterilizable and flexible, silicone is capable of inflicting sharp stinging pains and bruising.
  • Suede – Flexible and soft, this material tends to provide more “sting” than “thud”.
  • Elk Hide – Offering both a sting and a thud, this material is relatively soft, though heavier overall than suede.
  • Metal – Hard, stingy, and capable of producing serious injury, this material is best left to more experienced users when utilized in a BDSM scenario. Can also be used for temperature play.
  • Rope – Generally speaking, rope will feel very sharp if you’re on the receiving end, although you can also achieve a “thuddy” sensation if using a thick enough rope.

Choosing the Right Tool

Floggers offer a variety of sensations, determined by the material they are made from, the number of falls, whether they are weighted or not, their handle design, and how thin the falls are.

Which particular flogger works best for you and your play partner depends on a lot of factors: how much “thud” or “sting” sensation you want, how much weight you want behind the blows, whether you have multiple partners, and what each playmate’s pain tolerance is.

To help figure out what will most appeal to you and your play partners, it’s best to visit a shop or venue in person to get a literal feel for the merchandise. However, that isn’t always possible, so here are some guidelines for picking out a flogger:

  • The more falls a flogger has, the more spread out the force of the blow will be. Generally that means more “thud” and less “sting”, though toys like a filament rubber flogger will still have a lot of bite.
  • The stiffer and stretchier the material the flogger is made from, and the narrower and fewer its falls, the more “sting” it will provide.
  • Suede, deerskin and elkskin falls can provide a good deal of “thud” but rarely sting.
  • Rope falls sting more if the ropes are narrower, stiffer or knotted on the ends.
  • Oiled leather, buffalo hide and other stiff leather falls will sting more and possibly leave welts.
  • Rubber falls will sting more than thud, especially filament rubber or stiff, narrow rubber falls.
  • Weighted falls will provide more intensity but are also harder to swing and aim.
  • Rubber floggers are the easiest to clean if you have multiple partners.

Always consider the preferences, needs and endurance of the person(s) the flogger will be used on when picking one out. A big, muscular sub who loves heavy thud will like a weighted, fifty-fall flogger much more than a small, thin sub who prefers lighter impacts or sting.
