Beginner Flogging Workshop – Oct 16

The first time that I saw floggers being used, it seemed like such a mysterious activity. The flow of the flogger tails through the air, the almost dance-like reactions of the top and bottom, the ritualistic appearance of it… these were all things that impressed me.

Now I had the opportunity to learn about flogging from Contessa Alura, a true expert! Her workshop offered invaluable instruction regarding safety, communication, and enjoyment of flogging.

What struck me in particular was how these three aspects actually blend together and complement each other. There needs to be proper communication in order to ensure safety, which in turn leads to greater trust and a feeling of being able to ‘let go’.

We received amazing insights into what happens on an emotional level during this type of play. After learning so much, we had the opportunity to practice the techniques that Contessa Alura had explained. Although we were all beginners, we all started to develop our own ‘styles’.

Glovedsub served as a great demonstrator and excellent target practice also! Indeed, he had his own perspective with his own experiences which was interesting to hear also.

Is flogging any less mysterious to me? Not at all… I just have a deeper appreciation of the mystery of this kind of play, and of play in general.

  1. Hi
    Well I was not the only target practice that day. The door handle, the chairs, the snack machine and even Contessa Alura. But only her and me gave our consent…lol. A great workshop.
