Some advice

Following these tips will prove useful when caring for a whip in the BDSM environment. Important to remember that inattentiveness in the usage of a whip reduces its lifespan.

These simple rules will help to ensure the safety of your kinky games:

  • Only with practice will you learn to master your whip.
  • Make sure that there is a sufficient space around for whip swinging, there are no objects to which it can be hooked, causing damage to you or your partner.
  • Do not leave your whip lying around, making it accessible to people lacking experience in using them.

A well-balanced whip can be a serious instrument and is potentially dangerous if used unskillfully.

Observe precautionary measures with everything involving hygiene:

Disinfecting your whip is essential, before applying a used instrument with a new partner. This way, you eliminating yourself and your partner from the potential of skin infections. The best way to go about it is to purchase a disinfectant in your local pharmacy. You can use non-staining solution that kills bacteria, viruses, and fungus. There are medical surface cleaners that do not provoke skin irritations. But check the safety data sheet of the product before applying it to use.

Not to forget to condition your leather whip after the treatment, as the process may leave the leather dry. We use leather conditioner from Jay-EI, but other brands like Pecard or Fiebing’s will also work well.

You should store all whips suspended in mild conditions and average humidity. Important not to allow direct sunlight, because depending on the dye, the whip might change in color. Do not under any circumstances leave the whip convoluted or pressed in for too long. This can deform it and affect its fundamental characteristics. Avoid the collision of a whip with any hard or rigid surfaces or sharp angles. Whips designed for the use on soft tissues and will not maintain well with brutal treatment. Through extensive usage, the leather becomes drier and should be conditioned.
