Why Use Whips With Spikes?
Using whips with spikes can be an exciting addition to your current dungeon setup. These tantalizing toys open up a wide range of sensations for you to enjoy, from the subtle scratch of spikes across the skin to the intense, sharp pain that comes from a hard lash.
Different toys are made with different intentions in mind. Whereas some steel whips could be used for lashings and impact play, others are meant mainly for temperature play.
Some whips can’t be used for temperature play at all, but have sturdy designs that mean they can hold up to heavy impacts much more than their counterparts.
It’s important to consider the options (and limitations) of each whip with spikes when you’re testing it out for the first time. However, the addition of spikes definitely adds a few more items to your “to-do” list!

The 5 Best whips with spikes in Test
Spiked Chain Whip
The first whip with spikes we’ll be looking at today is the Spiked Chain Whip from Nasstoys!
This iron spike whip features a flexible chain that’s adorned with spikes for the ultimate blend of pain and pleasure.
Whether you want to tease your partner or punish them, this whip will let you enjoy the experience to your heart’s content!
Being made of metal, this whip is also extremely responsive to temperature changes. Whether you decide to drop it in some hot water or leave it in ice to chill, your sub surely won’t expect what’s coming next!
This iron spike whip is a fairly simple device, yet it somehow manages to be a multipurpose device. Of course, the obvious option is to use it as a whip. Depending on how hard you decide to use it, the receiver will be feeling anything from mild discomfort to severe pain (so use caution!).
However, all of the spikes on the whip also make it excellent for tickle play. You can run the spiked whip down their legs, across their back, and anywhere else you’d like to drive them wild.
Lastly, this whip is useful for temperature play. The only issue you’re likely to run into comes from heavy use. As some users on Amazon have noted, the whip does not hold up well to most impactful use. For this reason, we’d probably suggest sticking to lighter play like teasing with this toy.
Ultimate Spiked Chain Whip
Our next metal whip is very similar to the previous whip, but with an upgraded handle for better control.
Measuring 7.25 inches long and made from a combination of wood and PVC, this upgraded handle will give you the precision you need to arouse, excite, punish, and reward your sub.
Beyond the handle is where the real fun begins! 16 inches of spiked chains lay menacingly from the handle, inspiring both fear and excitement from whoever lays their eyes upon it.
If you’re looking for an easy way to make sure your sub will submit to your every whim, it’s easy to ensure obedience with the Ultimate Spiked Chain Whip!
This whip with spikes is nearly identical to the previous spike whip, so which one should you choose? Well, it really comes down to which style of handle you like better. Both are made by the same manufacturer, and both are suitable for the same types of play (light to moderate impact play, temperature play).
Like the previous model, we wouldn’t recommend this one for heavy impact play. Although it’s possible that the whip may break during use, there’s also the strong possibility of injuring your partner (should the whip not break).
Overall, we’d recommend—when choosing between these two whips—you just go with the one that has the handle style you like more.
20" Thong Whip w/ Spiked Tails
Our next whip with spikes goes a little bit heavier on the leather (and a little lighter on the spikes).
Sounds like a drawback? Think again! The inclusion of more leather means this spike whip will be able to handle harder impact play.
Don’t worry though, as you’ll still be able to tickle and tease your partner by running this spiked chain whip across their skin for a tantalizing effect.
Made with genuine leather and designed to excite, the 20” Thing Whip w/ Spiked Tails is definitely one you’ll want to add to your dungeon!
If you’re looking for an all metal whip then this spiked whip isn’t it. However, if you’re looking for something that’s a bit more heavy-duty for rougher impact play, this spiked whip is a worthy contender.
The 4” handle is a bit short for our liking, but it does come with an integrated D-ring, which will allow you to add your choice of wrist loop to the toy. The falls of the whip itself measure 16” a piece, tipped with silver metal spikes for that extra bit of sting with each swing.
Really, our only complaint with this whip is the price. At nearly $80, it’s not exactly the most budget-friendly option around. Even so, if you’re planning on using this little baddie every day, we’d argue that it’s still worth the investment!
Metal Oval Spike/keel Crop
This metal whip is a bit different from the others on our list. Rather than being a full-sized spiked whip, this spiked whip is a riding crop (that just so happens to have tiny spikes at the end!).
Perfect for those who prefer a stingy sensation, the design of this crop is perfect for sharp, pinpointed pain.
A simple riding crop alone is enough to cover your sub’s body with sharp, stingy sensations. This crop simply adds to the fun with the addition of tiny spikes placed around the head of the crop!
Although this whip with spikes is a bit different from the others, we really liked it. This model uses stainless steel, as opposed to the iron often found in alternative options. It also uses genuine leather, which is a nice change from the faux leather we’re all slowly getting used to.
When it comes to downsides, there’s really only one: the price. If you can find this crop on sale then we think it’s a great deal. However, when it comes to paying full price, we think it’s worth it only if you plan on using the crop a lot.
Fortunately, since the crop is made out of high-quality materials, it’s fair to expect it to last for a long time. As such, if you do decide to pick this toy up, you should be able to enjoy it for a long time!
Edge Spike Flogger Whip
The last whip with spikes we’ll be looking at today doesn’t feature a spike whip; the spikes on this spiked chain whip are purely decorative!
This makes it an excellent option for those who want the bragging rights of owning one of these devices (but aren’t actually interested in being stabbed by one!),
Although this whip isn’t made using real leather, it is vegan-friendly, which allows a wider range of BDSM enthusiasts to enjoy its sharp bite.
Looking for BDSM on a budget? Stop your search; you’ve found the perfect item right here!
Made from durable vegan leather, this spiked whip should be fairly durable, making it a good contender for heavier impact play. The spikes featured on the handle don’t offer much beyond decoration, although you could tease your sub a little bit by using them to scratch their skin.
One of the biggest strong points about this whip is its overall length. At nearly 29” long, this whip can definitely pack a punch!
Overall, we’d recommend this whip to someone who doesn’t mind purely decorative spikes and is more concerned with overall performance.

BDSM Safety: What to Know Before Using Whips With Spikes in the Bedroom... or BDSM Dungeon
You have all of the BDSM furniture in place, the atmosphere’s right, and your partner is ready for some fun: now what? Well, even if you and your partner are familiar with BDSM, it’s always a good idea to discuss boundaries before trying a new toy.
Make sure to discuss any concerns, limitations, or topic(s) of interest about your new whip with spikes before testing it out. As these types of whips are definitely capable of inflicting injury, it’s vital that you establish a safe word!
With that out of the way, you’ll simply need to start light and work your way up. Light play could include temperature play, teasing, tickling, or light impact play.
As both you and your partner get used to the whip, you can work your way up to harder impacts. We’ve mentioned above that some whips don’t take well to harder impacts (so be sure to keep this in mind if you want your whip to last!).
Although the average whip with spikes won’t feature razor-sharp spikes, it’s still important to be aware that these devices can easily puncture the skin. As such, you should avoid striking any high-risk areas where bleeding could pose a serious issue.

How to Use a Whip with Spikes
Using a whip with spikes can be intimidating, especially if it’s your first time using a spiked chain whip. However, if you’re feeling unsure about the process, you can simply refer to the steps below to ensure the experience goes as expected!
Talk to Your Partner
Before using a spiked whip, it’s important that both you and your partner are on the same page. Discuss any limitations, goals, or other relevant factors before bringing out the whip.
Once you actually start using your whip with spikes, it’s always best to start out light. This will give you time to get used to handling the spiked chain whip itself, but also allows your partner time to get used to the sensations before they increase in intensity.
Work Your Way Up
Once you’re both feeling comfortable, you can start to increase the intensity of your swings. Of course, impact play isn’t the only way to use these toys: a spiked chain whip can also be used for teasing and temperature play! Experiment and enjoy your new toy with your partner.
How to Clean a Whip with Spikes
Whips are daily simple devices. As such, they’re also extremely easy to clean! Using antibacterial soap and warm water, clean your whip off. Next, wash the whip off using only water. If your whip is made from genuine leather, you may want to consider using saddle soap—which will treat the leather—instead of antibacterial soap. Once the whip has been cleaned, pat the whip dry and leave it out to completely air dry before storing it away. This will help prevent bacteria from growing on the surface of the whip.
Soft plastic, hard plastic, jelly, rubber, Cyberskin are all porous materials, meaning that small particles and bacteria can penetrate the surface. This makes it impossible to completely clean these types of materials.
Therefore, it is recommended that you use a condom with these types of toys, especially if you are sharing them. Clean these toys with mild soapy water and dry gently with a towel. These materials are more easily damaged, so be sure to be gentle and make sure your toys are completely dry before storing.
Silicone, glass, stainless steel and some hard plastics can all be washed using a mild soap (like you would use on your body) and warm water. Just be careful if your toy contains electrical parts.
Silicone and stainless steel toys without any electrical parts can also be boiled for sterilisation.
If your toys contain electrical components, be extra careful when cleaning them and always check the instructions provided with the toy. You can use a gentle cloth and soap to wipe or sex toy cleaner or cleaning wipe to down your toy, making sure that no water comes into contact with the electrical parts.
What is a Whip with Spikes?
A whip with spikes is a type of BDSM whip that features spikes somewhere along the length of the whip. While some whips may have spikes on the falls of the whip (where they can provide direct stimulation to the sub), others may include spikes on the handle for purely decorative reasons.
