Flogger Case Regular and XL by FYN

1 comments
To make an easy-to-read comparison, I'm reviewing the two flogger cases, the regular size and XL, by For Your Nyphomation. They're both well-constructed and great for carrying or transporting floggers, kink products, or even vibes to play parties, on trips, or wherever you may need a lockable case to keep your things. I personally love both of my cases, and I'm so glad that I bought them.

The two flogger cases, for size comparison. The XL is open.

Some things that they both have that are notable are the elastic on the flap, the little velcro hanging slots, and the lock. The elastic is almost useless in the regular-sized case, because it's doubtful that anything too heavy will be held in there (unless you have some steel or glass pieces that you are transporting). In that case, it's very helpful. However, in the XL, it was almost a necessity for me. When I put heavier floggers, like my barbed wire or Sparticus loves Cleo floggers, they fell off of the velcro loop (the velcro isn't the most heavy-duty velcro), so I had to pull them through the elastic bands. (Shown below are the velcro, left, and the elastic, right. Also the lock and tag.)

Each of the cases has a lock, which honestly is not the safest lock around. I have no problems with it, because no one is really trying to break into my things to see what I'm hiding, but I know that for people who do have this sort of thing happening, they might want to invest in a different lock. It's very small, and can be easily picked or snipped apart.



Let's start out with the smaller version, since that's generally what most people buy. It's 22" in length, 3½" wide, and 3" tall. It fits shorter floggers, the beloved Hitachi and Fairy wands, gags, my new Viper Tongue, and much, much more. Surprisingly, for its size, it holds a ton of things (perfect for play parties, in particular). I put some cuffs in there, a couple pairs of nipple clamps, and a number of other things essential for my idea of a "good time." And I certainly had one.

Sadly, it couldn't fit my rounded paddles or longer riding crops, but if I had wanted, I probably could have fit my chain or feather ticklers. It simply isn't wide enough to fit a round paddle (but my Angelic Dreams Spank Her paddle did indeed fit, which is good enough for me).

It's really easy to hold for me because of its small size. Being 5' 1" (yes, I'm only 5' 1"), I could use the nylon shoulder strap and put it across my chest (after loosening it, of course), or hold it by the regular hand strap on the side. It does become slightly heavy, considering how much it has the capability to hold, but it's nowhere near unwieldy. The case could definitely be taken to a party or hotel room (not to sound creepy, just being realistic).



Now for the XL. The XL case is great for longer floggers, like my roses flogger. It's not bigger in the width/height department, so the only thing that makes it "XL" is really its length. It's 42" in total length, 3" in height, and 3½" in width. What's great about that though is that for those of us who have longer floggers, whips, or any form of equipment, we can easily store it in those cases.

So what could I fit in mine? I could fit two floggers, some nipple clamps, a spreader bar (probably two, if I really wanted), and a handful of other miniature things. Where the XL case really shines is in its ability to hold longer impact implements. I personally have quite a few longer floggers, canes, and riding crops, and these all fit in the XL flogger case. There is elastic on the case's cover, so I suggest putting your heavier floggers through the elastic, as the velcro on the inside will not hold it in place.

I will say that the XL case is a bit unwieldy, to be fully honest. Especially at my height, it looks a little ridiculous if I try to put it across my chest. However, in transportation and in holding, it's perfect for when you're needing to either pack more, or pack things that are longer. If need be, it could be seen as a double regular-size case, so that you have twice the storage area.


Comparison of the Two Cases

So here are two lists of the two cases' specifications and some notes about what they're good for. Hopefully, this makes it easier for you to know which one will be a better purchase to make for your style and needs.

It's that time of year again...you know, when it's time to start getting gifts for everyone, including yourself or a special, special loved one. Winter holidays time! I'm going to share with you the Red Diamond Princess, a traditional, compact-sized vibrator made of velvety smooth plastic and with a turn-dial base.

Edenfantasys sent me this adorable vibrator for the holidays around Christmas time last year, and it's a perfect little stocking stuffer for people both new to and experienced with vibrators. It comes packaged adorably in a sweet tin case, and its design is attractive and pleasing to the eye. The color is very nice, too. If you want to read my entire review of the Red Diamond Princess, follow this link.

Inflatable Position Master by Pipedream

This is the Inflatable Position Master by Pipedream. From Edenfantasys for only $27, you can make one of these your own in order to make positions easier during sex (or even to rest a laptop on). I really love mine, it's just an excellent addition to my growing collection. It has handles on the side, as you can see, and its velvety texture is pretty smooth and doesn't feel too rough. And since it's a plain black, it should go with most room setups, regardless of design.

Here you can see the handles, and the rubber piece where you blow it up from.
My hand fits quite nicely and easily. Also, it comes with a little nylon blindfold.
This is the packaging for the Position Master (not discreet, but hey, what can you do?)

The Positions Master's great because it can fit a wide variety of people (it states that it can hold up to 300lbs.). It is inflatable, however, which isn't to some people's taste. In that case, you can always purchase another piece of sex furniture from Edenfantasys, like something from Liberator or Love Bumper.

Bottoms Up edited by Rachel Kramer Bussel

0 comments
The book Bottoms Up was a book that I had been lusting after for the longest time. I mean, come on—what person who loves spanking wouldn't be interested in a book with a red tush on its cover and the words "bottoms up" perfectly framing that round ass? Edited by Rachel Kramer Bussel, this is a collection of short stories all about something that I personally love: beating some sweet bottoms.

Bottoms Up - BookWith a total of twenty stories (yes, you read that correctly—twenty stories), you're bound to find something that you enjoy (hopefully you'll find more than one, though). These include different dynamics of relationships and people of different sexual persuasions (polyamory included). There are many heterosexual stories, a few homosexual stories, and stories with people living out their long ignored fantasies and desires.

Some of my favorites included Prime Time by Teresa Noelle Roberts, Stuffing the Ballot Box by Andrea Dale, and Flaming by Jean Roberta. Out of all of those, I really loved Prime Time the most. It was about an experienced BDSM couple, female submissive and male Dominant, where the Dominant in the relationship was a math professor. Since I'm a math professor, I could heavily relate to the man in the story and it was quite amusing to see how similar his character was to mine (making the submissive count the strikes, thank after each one, etc.) The sex was good, too.

Stuffing the Ballot was another one with a male Dominant (sorry, I didn't particularly like the stories with female Dominants, though I will note some that were written well later). The woman in the story is a senator, a woman of high regard and status, who needs time to "relax" and let go of herself when she's home. Her Dominant allows her to do this by giving her the much needed pain and control that she craves.

And last but certainly not least, Flaming is about...well...people who are flaming. Silly title, I know, but hey, what can you do? Two gay men, one who is a painter, another one who lives in the same apartment complex, help each other out. The painter needs a model for his painting, and the other man, Matthew, has had a crush on the painter for a very long time. They get together, Matthew gets spanked by the painter a bit. The reason why I liked it is because I thought that it was very cute, how Matthew dresses in drag.

Some other titles that I thought were good but were not favorites were:
  • A Firm Understanding by Elizabeth Coldwell (involves polyamory)
  • Ass Worship by Jerry Arthur (female Dominant)
  • Lonnie's Licks by Tenille Brown (male Dominant, but a nice message about addiction)
  • Confessor by Craig J. Sorensen (female Dominant)
  • Helping Those in Need by Gwen Masters (male Dominant)

As you can see, many of the stories were enjoyable (even to me, a sadistic little bastard). There were some others that were alright, just not tasteful in my opinion, so I am not listing them. As an entire collection, however, these were well-picked stories and they were, for the most part, well-written. They catered to a wide audience, with a wide range of stories (both for the more vanilla spanker and the more experienced). So if you like spanking and you love reading erotica, Bottoms Up is a wonderful book to have on your shelf.

If a book about spanking isn't your thing, you can check out all of the other books that Edenfantasys has to offer. And for a bit of a discount, enter my partner code B5P in order to get 15% off your entire order when you shop!

Rose Riding Crop by Ruff Doggie Styles

2 comments
Wanting to give your lover a sweet treat? From Fascinations, I bring you the Roses Riding Crop, similar to the Roses Flogger, made by Ruff Doggie Styles. It's made completely of high quality leather, and has a beautiful little rose bud on its end as the riding crop's tip. It might look like a cute and sweet implement, but it can be used devastatingly. For an excellent riding crop, I highly recommend this new piece of mine.

The entire riding crop.
As you can see, its rose bud is a beautiful red color (though it also comes in a few different shades), and the shaft and leaves are a light to deep shade of green. It gives it that true rose-like coloration, which makes it more realistic and aesthetically pleasing. It's also extremely unique—I mean, honestly, when have you ever seen a red and green riding crop, save for this one? I haven't, and if I did, they were custom made.

The handle is the same hue as the rose: a beautiful scarlet red. And to accent it, the wrist or hanging strap is the same green as the riding crop's shaft. Pretty neat, no? Ruff Doggie Styles really paid attention to detail with this beauty, as they do with all of their products.

Up close images of the tip of the riding crop.

Its total length is 24½", the tip being 2" and the handle 6". The wrist/hanging strap is a substantial size to both fit around the wrist and be hung on a hook. If you have a riding crop shelf (these shelves usually have slots that will fit the handle), the handle's end is a perfect size that will sit comfortably and easily without being too tight, letting you take it out without a struggle.

As with all of their products, Ruff Doggie Styles makes their Rose Riding Crop out of high quality, good smelling leather. This not only means that it will last for an extremely long time, but it also means that you can be sure that you're holding a top-notch riding crop. Since it is formed like a rose, it's not really made for equestrian play, but it is good for people new to using riding crops (since it's not very intimidating) and for those particularly sarcastic sadistics (well...I find it amusing, at least).

Pictures of me holding the riding crop and of the handle close-up.

I was pretty surprised to find out just how good this riding crop is. It actually works really well and doesn't fall apart; the force with which it makes contact with the skin is quite stingy and quite painful. The rose isn't too firm, but it's not too floppy either, giving enough swing in it to make a nice slap on the tush, thighs, or breasts if you so please. My personal favorite places to hit are the bottom and the thighs. Even though I've started to become more accustomed to my floggers recently, I have re-found my love for riding crops with this one.

The Rose Riding Crop can give marks anywhere from a light pink tinge to some heavy bruises. So anyone who doesn't like too much pain but loves riding crops would be safe with purchasing this one, so long as they're careful with how they use it.

If I've gotten you even slightly interested in this piece, you can purchase your own over at Fascinations for a low price of $35, which is pretty good for a well-made crop. If it's not the sort of thing that's your taste, you can check out Fascinations' website for tons of other products, ranging from vibrators to cock rings to sex furniture!

A special thanks to Fascinations for sending me this riding crop, free of charge, for my honest review. Thank you!

A Flogger and a Bar

0 comments
Just as I said—a flogger and a bar. These are pictures of the Sparticus Loves Theo flogger, made by Ruff Doggie Styles, and the Spreader Bar with Triangle Rings, made by Spartacus. They're both lovely additions to my ever growing collection, and they're both excellent pieces. I put them together in one post because I was honestly too lazy to make another post (I know, I deserve a spanking). HA! But regardless, here they are for you to feast your little eyes upon.

My flogger and my bar, together in harmony.

First, I'll show pictures of the bar, since I did not take many. It's an excellent bar with a plastic piece between the leather, making it stiff as anything and great for use for even the most squirmy of submissives. It doesn't bend or break, which is very much needed for a multitude of reasons. It also has seven triangle rings, meaning that you can use it in many ways and also spread your partner at different widths. The bar is about $75, which I am surprised to say is a good price. It's most definitely worth it.

Showing a little vanity shot on the left, and me with it attached to the bar. Yeah, I know, you can laugh.

Now, here are images of the Sparticus Loves Theo flogger. What that means in particular, I honestly have no idea. But it's a great flogger, extremely heavy and giving a nice, hard thud when used. The tails...boy, the tails are so thick, I was astonished. I've never owned a flogger with such thick tails, and now that I do, I'm amazed at their strength and am very pleased to own it. Another pretty thing about the tails are the rounded edges. But that's all in my review here. Let's just get to the good part, shall we?

The handle and wrist/hanging strap of the flogger.

Showing the thickness of the tails, how it connects to the flogger, and the rounded edges.

So there you have it. A flogger and a bar, a bar and a flogger. Two great BDSM products that I'm extraordinarily happy to own. You can purchase your own here at Edenfantasys. They're not currently carrying the flogger (such a shame), but hopefully they will soon, and when they do, I will most definitely update you all on the details, pricing, and all of that.

Rainbow Nights Silver Paddle by Ruff Doggie Styles

I bought this paddle a while ago from the lovely Edenfantasys, and I've really just fallen in love with it. Truly, I have. This paddle has brought me even closer to the realization I had a while ago—that Ruff Doggie Styles is an excellent company that makes extremely well-made BDSM products. I have not disliked any product that I've received from them, and that's saying a lot (especially since I'm so picky about my things). I'm really glad that I own the Rainbow Nights Silver Paddle, and that's why I'm showing it to you today! To read my full review, check it out here.

If you're interested in this paddle, you can purchase it for just $50 over at Edenfantasys. Want to get 15% off? Enter my partner code B5P at your checkout to do so. This one not to your taste? Then you can check out a whole lot of other spanking or BDSM implements there too.
