Let’s Get Kinky: Flogging

Flogging, also called whipping or caning ,  a beating administered with a whip or rod, with blows commonly directed to the person’s back. It was imposed as a form of judicial punishment and as a means of maintaining discipline in schools, prisons, military forces, and private homes.

from Encyclopedia Britannica

Flogging was touched on briefly in our very first “Let’s Get Kinky” post but let’s whip it some more. Cue Devo! If you’ve ever watched a porn scene or browsed a pictorial that featured a dude slapping the shit out of another dude’s back (or other parts) with one of those multi-stranded leathery punishing tools – that’s flogging!

Some dudes get a charge (and a boner tipped with pre-cum) from getting welts raised on their bare backs by a “Sir’s” flogger. Why? We’re going to let Manhunt member peacefulmichael tell you after the JUMP!

peacefulmichael on flogging:

“What turns me on about it is the intensity of it. On the outside, it looks scary to watch because it looks painful. It just looks like someone is being beaten but once you’ve had it done to you, you see it differently. The impact is really to get your body to go into the “fight or flight” response and to get the adrenaline rush from that as well as the endorphin surge. When done correctly, it really isn’t about pain at all and it leaves your body feeling so relaxed, energized and fully alive with tingles.”

“Once I discovered how amazing it felt as a bottom, I knew I had to help other guys feel that. My favorite thing is to introduce it to guys who are afraid of it (through lack of first hand experience) but willing to explore it and to see them writhing in pleasure and loving the sensations.”

“Yes, flogging can be a very painful and an intense thing if that’s what you are after but it doesn’t need to be that way. It’s all in the skills of the top and the desires of the bottom. When I do it to guys it leaves them feeling highly stimulated and yet completely relaxed. Add erotic stimulation to the experience and it can be orgasmic.”

Thanks, peacefulmichael! We gave him a week of Unlimited Manhunt free for helping us out! Got a fetish or kink you’d like us to write about? E-mail us at daily@manhunt.net!

Oh, and I realize the last pic isn’t flogging. It’s a really nice butt receiving a wedgie. Which brings me to ask – anyone find wedgies erotic? That may sound ridiculous to some of you, but I can recall receiving them from pals when I was a youngin’. On one hand – humiliating and painful. On the other, less talked-about hand – they could sorta feel good? Hey, different strokes and all.

  • joeat

    That is truly one gorgeous ass.

  • I have a flogger and was with a B&D S&M group for a while where we learned how to properly do a lot of stuff. It was fun from time to time but really helps when you trust the person or people your with and definitely need a pre-agreed safe word to stop.

  • Duno

    That guy looks like Fraser Jacs from UNM.  Is that him?

  • equalove

    Don’t get it but whatever blows your skirt up, I guess.

  • Deafeevee

    Flogging, whipping, and caning are three different things, in order of increasing intensity and decreasing tails/flexibility of the tool involved.

  • Thanks for this Dewitt but I agree with Deafeevee, in the BDSM world those are all very different things and each has its own tools. A flogger is what is in the picture I’m attaching. They are primarily used for the impact (or thud). These aren’t meant to draw blood or deliver sting. Whips are about the sting. Caning is using a single “stick” for spanking. All very different things. I’m only about the flogging (just to be clear). Whipping and caning are good and fine, just not my bag.

    Perhaps using the Encyclopedia Britannica was not the best choice for that definition. Might I suggest http://www.urbandictionary.com for future Kinky posts.

    Deafeevee and Michael! are correct.  All three of these are forms of impact play, which also includes spanking and paddling, as well as more obscure things like bastinado.  The different tools produce very different sensations for the sub; some like one and not the others, while other people like them all.  

    Flogging can be extremely relaxing–I’ve had guys compare it to a good massage. It can also be an intense emotional release for the sub. The physical pain sometimes helps the sub deal with emotional pain that he’s been carrying around and not acknowledging. So the dom needs to be sensitive to the sub’s emotional state as well as his physical state.
