The Ruff Doggie Styles Roses Flogger. Not a dozen roses. It's nine. Not only won't these roses die, they'll provide many lovely memories. Made of leather with lovely delicate red leather roses, green leaves and black thorns, it's a work of art.
This is well constructed flogger. The red braided leather handle isn't showing signs of loosening/unraveling. The black knobs at each end of the handle are covered with black leather in a tighter braid. Happily the roses are sewn on tightly with little chance of falling off. Confusing is that there are no thorns on the tails, but perhaps the tails themselves represent the thorns.
The handle itself is about 8-10" long. One end leads to the tails and the other end has a braided loop for extra security (so the flogger doesn't go flying if you lose your grip). Some may find the handle itself too light, but keeping the handle lighter saves fatigue considering the tails are heavier than expected given the extra leather constructing the roses and leaves.
When swung, the roses tend to land in a group making for a very thuddy sensation. If you are someone who enjoys thud more than sting, this is great. Energetic swinging may cause welts that color into spectacular bruises. What makes this a good flogger for beginners as well as experienced players is the extra heft and length of the tails. In total this flogger is about 36". You're going to need some room to swing this. It is an easy flogger to swing once you learn to swing something this long. The thudding sensation is something a novice or expert can enjoy.
I don't recommend this as a multiple-person use toy simply because I love the intense colors and don't want to jeopardize the color by sanitizing it. Use a leather cleaner or a damp cloth to protect the color.
