Oscuro Bullwhip from Latex Leather & Lace

Latex, Leather & Lace are a friendly UK independent online shop selling lots of kinky kit, and I was lucky enough to be sent the Oscuro Bullwhip for review.  Oscuro is Latex Leather & Lace’s own brand of bondage goodies.

 

Well, I say lucky, but that’s probably not the adjective most would use.  You see, everything about the Oscuro Bullwhip is a little bit menacing, a little bit serious.

I mean, it’s 5 whole feet of black leather.  Add in the nylon tassel at the end and it’s more like 6 whole feet.  It’s a heavy, serious piece of kit that one could quite easily imagine Indiana Jones swinging across the abyss from.

The handle is thick and long, big enough for 2 hands, although if you decide to do that you really will miss the beauty of the Oscuro Bullwhip.

 

The beauty starts at that handle, crafted into what feels like an indestructible leather baton; it is firm, comfortable and altogether really rather awesome. There is a wrist strap, similarly robust, if a little on the small side for my bear-like wrists; it was no problem for M.

The quality continues down the length of the whip; the first foot or so is largely inflexible, but as the girth of the woven leather lessens, the whip becomes more flexible, before ending in thick knotted string.

 

Ok, so you’ve gathered that this is a top quality piece of leather kinky goodness, what’s it like to use?

 

The two words that spring out are tricky and ouch.

 

I’ll deal with the trickiness first.

 

This isn’t a paddle or a crop or cane that will strike with 95% accuracy, this is a long length of material, and with that comes a higher degree of difficulty. You can make a sequence of identical body movements, and the Oscuro Bullwhip will give you a different result each time.

This doesn’t mean it’s a bugger to use – in fact quite the opposite – both M and myself got that inimitable whip-crack on our first try.   What you absolutely will want to do though is practice.  Not just on getting it to crack, but on the best way to hit the target you want to hit and not yourself.

Yes, you read it right, a couple of times M managed to whip herself. She was trying an underarm flick, and the nylon cracker just clipped her side.  She was trying underarm since we were in the bedroom with only a little space.

 

So we duly relocated to a room with more space – the lounge, enabling M to utilise the more stereotypical overarm whip crack.  The key point here is that at over 5 feet long, you’re going to need some significant room to play around with this.  Whipping around is probably not the best idea if you live in a shed with a zillion ornaments on the shelves.

So, yeah, the Oscuro Bullwhip is the type of impact toy that you can really build your skills up on.  It’s a lot of fun to whip it round, for both myself and M – if you can avoid hitting yourself that is.

 

To be on the receiving end though, is not quite the same type of fun.

It doesn’t take a genius to expect the Oscuro Bullwhip to hurt.  And that expectation plays such a massive part in play.

Since the whip is long, M has to stand quite away from me to whip me.  This means I can see her from my peripheral vision, and anticipate the strike of the whip.  I don’t even need to see the whip – you can hear it coming.  This really does get the senses whirring before anything even happens. Anticipation is very much Ms friend when it comes to our BDSM play.

 

I was genuinely scared of the Oscuro Bullwhip first time out, and M agreed to be gentle. I stood in the corner of the living, room, she in the centre. I bent slightly forward and braced myself against the wall.

 

The first strike actually wasn’t too bad, it was just an upward flick from the whip trailing on the floor, the fronds tickling up my calf and snapping at the top of my legs.  It resulted in a greater reaction than it merited – the anticipation creating mystic tingles.

There was a pause before the next impact.  M was taking it easy as promised.  I’m not sure if this was a good idea or not, since the anticipation was building again.  A nervous excitement intermingled with fear.  I saw from the corner of my eye that she was moving to whip me.  The impact was more meaty this time, creating proper sharp sensations itself.  A bit like the sharp sting from a flick of nails over your bare skin.

 

Another pause.  Again I see from the corner of my eye, a more exaggerated movement this time, I tense, almost shying away from the forthcoming impact.  Then it comes, a sharp intense sting, across the top of my rump.  The taking it easy is lessening, it would seem.

 

M whips me a few more times, the sharp sting becoming more and more intense every time.

 

As she increases the intensity, the strikes of the whip becoming slightly more sporadic – whereas with low intensity she was hitting my rump and bottom every time, with more effort she was hitting further up my back.

One strike hurt a lot more than any others – the whip had struck me where the nylon is woven into the leather – wow that’s some painful sensation.

She paused longer, sensing that the pain was high.

I motioned that it was OK to continue.  She did.

 

Before too long, the anticipation was replaced with fear – the Oscuro Bullwhip wields fear with ease – if you’re on the end of a decent whip, it delivers a whole plethora of feelings.  The top note is one of extreme hurt – the immediate pain strikes hot and sharp, and that’s what sticks in the mind.  Look beyond that though, and you get a slight tickle as the nylon fronds slide off your skin.

 

The real genius with the Oscuro Bullwhip is that I, as sub, get all this overwhelming sensation, but M is actually putting very little physical effort into the whipping – the bullwhip does that for her.  I am loath to think about what it might feel like if she put a lot of effort into those strikes.

 

So, the Oscuro Bullwhip. Fucking Ouch.  I’m wondering if Latex, Leather & Lace actually hate me!
