The Best BDSM Whips For Hardcore Fun

Written by: Don Watson | Updated: April 12th, 2021

There are plenty of ways to enjoy yourself in the bedroom, some of them seem strange to us, some of them seem extreme, some of them might look fun to you.

Regardless of what you think. The bottom line is we should be getting comfortable with our sexualities and never feel coerced or compelled for what we are doing or not.

Taboos and everything aside, it’s time we all just enjoy what we do and forget what people have to say about it.

Being an avid sex toy collector, my partner and I being very open with each other quickly found ourselves trying new things.

One of those things being BDSM a type of BDSM being “impact play” play. Impact play has varying levels for beginners to experts, and uses all sorts of tools from Ticklers, to floggers and whips. You don’t have to be a hardcore BDSM expert to get a whip or flogger ivolved in your sex life. As Rihanna simply puts it “whips and chains excite me” so let’s jump right into what you can use to spice up the bedroom.

What is Impact play and why do people enjoy pain?

Impact play is the BDSM practice where one partner strikes another with their hands or a toy for sexual gratification. Typically toys that are used involve Ticklers, floggers, whips, and canes.

It can sound really scary and intimidating but it doesn't have to be extreme and it's always between two consenting adults. that's one of the most important parts of it is that it is between two consenting adults and it can go a long way in building trust and intimacy.

It may seem really strange at first why people enjoy this kind of sexual act.  but the fact of the matter is that love, sex, pain, and violence all stimulate the release of very similar chemicals and hormones in the human body.

During painful experiences, endorphins are released in the brain and sometimes they can be perceived as pleasurable.  the release of epinephrine and norepinephrine in pain can also cause a pleasurable “ Rush”.  This is a completely normal biological human response between pain and pleasure which we see reflected in other aspects of life, such as a runner's high.

Levels of Play

As mentioned before, there are different levels of impact play  and pain is always optional not a necessity.  End impact play we use a couple different types of toys let me explain a few of the options to you.

Ticklers

These toys are intended purely for light playful fun and do not cause pain. They are most often made from feathers or some other very soft material. The lightest level of impact play is running your hands or toys along your partner's body.

This can cause a tickling sensation and just because it's light doesn't mean you can't find a torturous way to use it.  if you find a ticklish spot on your partner you can definitely take advantage of that just make sure they're still having fun.

Riding Crops

A short flexible whip with a loop of leather around the end instead of a lash. Traditionally used on horses to make them run faster, the riding crop has been repurposed as a sex toy and is used to arouse and whip men and woman into obedience instead now.

Floggers

Floggers are made up of a “handle” and “falls”. The “falls” are the pieces of leather, rubber, or other material that falls at the end of the handle and makes contact with your partner. Typically speaking, floggers  with thicker “falls” lower the intensity of pain,  whereas thinner “falls” cause more of a stinging sensation when they hit the skin.

The type of material the flogger is made from also has a significant impact on the level of pain experienced. Leathers come in varying softness and harnesses that change the intensity levels and rubber is even more intense than hard leather. Floggers are a great place to start moving up in Impact play.

I feel they are a great  versatile option as they can still be used for very light play and can be stepped up for a little bit of pain. This is a great choice for beginners to experiment a little more and dive a little deeper into impact play.

Whips

Whips are the most intense toys for impact play that I will put on this list. As mentioned before test out your pain tolerance and preference with floggers before buying a whip. ALL WHIPS HURT, AND THEY STING A LOT. Whips come in all sorts of materials as well as varying numbers of tails such as the cat’o’nine tails, similar to floggers.

Top 6 Best BDSM Whips On The Market

#1. Bondage Boutique Wide Leather Riding Crop (My Top Pick)

This riding crop is 27 in long, and the loop of material at the end of the crop is made of leather.

This riding crop is extra long  and is as traditional as most riding crops go with a sculpted handle and a wrist strap. This particular riding crop is designed for anything from gentle smacks to to impressively stinging strikes.

The reason this is my Top Choice is because the riding crop is most synonymous with BDSM and is a great place to begin an adventurous journey. This riding crop is The perfect choice if you're looking to dip your toes into the world of bondage, BDSM, end impact and sensation play.

It is an inexpensive item that will help you discover new things in your sex life if you're willing to give it a shot. and if you find that you don't really enjoy it,  you can always use it to chase your partner around to get the chores done,  that'll teach them to slack off.  

I'm always a fan of products that could introduce new and curious individuals to a niche Hobby,  it's riding crop being one of those items I highly suggest giving it a shot.


#2. Thong Whip with Spiked Tails

This terrifying looking flogger is 20 inches long and made of  12 black leather lacings with silver metal spikes attached to the ends. The handle length is 4 inches and the falls have a total length of 16 inches.

The handle has a D ring affixed letting you attach it to your outfit of choice when not in use. This flogger is made for the more experienced impact players and is definitely on the more painful side of toys due to the metal tips.

Terrifying as it may look, floggers have short handles and don't generate too much energy on the swing, no nearly as much as longer handles on whips do. The design of this flogger is very reminiscent of the cat-o-nine tails, used in the Navy and Pirate life. It fits the mood for sexy pirates or sailors who misbehave and need to be punished.

When using this flogger my partner was sure to take it easy on me. It started by dragging the metal over my body slowly. It is such a strange feeling of excitement and anticipation. It feels so intimidating to have such a vicious-looking toy gently pulled over your body in a terribly teasing fashion. Once we got a little more into it though I found it was not nearly as painful as it first appeared. That being said I know my partner was easy on me and this is definitely not a toy for beginners.


#3. Black Dragon Tail Whip

I’ll start by saying this is by far the most extreme whip and sensation on this list. The Black Dragon Tail Whip is made of 1 continuous piece of Italian Leather upholstery to ensure durability and integrity after prolonged use.

The spiral handle design has an oak core and the exterior is wrapped with a leather lace cord for grip. The leather lacing is made of kangaroo skin which is very durable and will not deteriorate or loosening over time. The bottom of the handle carries the Dragontailz signature dragon jewelry logo and completes the look of the whip.

Not only do I think this whip is too intense for beginners I also think it’s more of an intermediate luxury item. It is very nicely made and definitely makes a statement just being held in hand. This whip is an advanced toy for impact play and I found it very painful delivering exactly as advertised.

When it comes to sensation play, it isn’t always about just the physical touch, the other senses play a role too, such as sound. Let me tell you, the whip being made of leather has an amazing sound when it cracks. It is terrifying but arousing at the same time. I enjoy a bit of pain when getting naughty but I found whips to be a little strong for my taste. Overall, I would recommend this to any seasoned players of the game and anyone looking for a step up from to a higher level of play.


#4. Victor Tella’s Snake Whip

This beautifully made hand-crafted whip is made from Grade A kangaroo hide for incredible quality. The Snake Whip has a single piece of leather that extends from the braided portion of the whip handle to the tip with the removable cracker.

These snake whips are medium-sized whips so they come in 3 and 4-foot variants. The medium-length whips are a little easier to control and keep in line. They are not so long that they get tangled under feet and get in the way.

My experience with these whips was mostly for show, admittedly I’m not very skilled with them but they do look intimidating and I can still be threatening and teasing with it. This Snake Whip is tapered at the end and has a very fine tip, allowing for extremely painful stings when hit.

It has a super satisfying crack to it as well. This is a great choice for anyone looking for a precise and painful toy. It is very accurate and can cause a lot of hurt. If you are looking for something at the higher levels of impact play this is it. Stay away if you are new and if using this whip please be careful as it can cause serious injury.


#5. The Performance Hybrid Whip

This whip is the biggest and baddest one on this list and the most iconic whip that comes to mind thanks to its appearance in some movies.

This traditionally looking whip is made of 12 plait braided nylon paracord thong attached to a flexible 16 plait handle capped with a Turk’s head knot. This is the real deal when it comes to whips.

While we are discussing these toys in a fun and kinky way, these whips are capable of serious damage and harm and are meant for performers but we are commandeering them for more fun activities.

So unless you are interested in playing sexy Indy and the Raiders of the lost eyeball, I recommend starting small and working your way up.

A hybrid performance whip is a combination of 2 different styles of whips being bullwhip and stockwhip. They are widely considered the best types of whips for beginners because of their versatility and ease of use. Cracking a whip is significantly harder than it first appears and the design of these whips makes it easier for beginners to get the satisfying crack more often.


#6. Sportsheets The Motivator Leather Bondage Crop

Jumping down in intensity back down to the bottom is The motivator leather bondage crop. This crop is 20 inches long and is also made of leather similar to our first option. This crop however has a larger 7-inch split leather spanking surface.

This larger surface area in comparison to our first crop means the smack will be a lot more spread out and far less painful than anything pinpoint. This crop is more reminiscent of a hybrid between a paddle and a crop.

Not only is there more surface area but the handle is shorter allowing less momentum to transfer into the hit. It comes with a simple rubber handle and is very inexpensive compared to some of our more intense options.

This is once again a great toy to start adventuring and experimenting with because of the simplicity, intensity, and price.

Unlike the whips on our list, this toy is super easy and fun to use allowing all the control and precision you want, compared to the power of whips. It’s small and compact and adds some flavor to the bedroom without getting too intense. I love whipping (excuse the pun) out this crop for a few correctional slaps to get my partner in line.


Stockroom

All of these items can be found through online retailers and places like Esty but I recommend using stockroom.com to order all your sex toys from. I have been using stockroom with my partner for some time now to order from because they have a fantastic selection of categories to choose from. Some sex store sites have one or two items in a category and don’t offer much choice.

Stockroom.com offers a diverse amount of products since they have been selling sex toys and BDSM products for over 30 years. Stockroom describes itself as the original source of quality sex toys, bondage gear, and restraints online for over 30 years. I especially love that whenever I order over 99 dollars worth of stuff, which let’s be honest, is easy to accrue when shopping for sex toys, I get free shipping to anywhere in the states. It’s fast and discreet and my mailman doesn’t know that he just delivered me the tools to whip my partner.
