Impact Play And The Best Gay Whips Try Unleash Your Inner Dominatrix!

Spanking and whipping for sexual pleasure is not anything new. The first recorded occurrence of impact play is depicted in the Etruscan Tomb of the Whipping,  dating back to the fifth century B.C. Another reference is found in the work of the Roman poet Juvenal, which dates back to 1-2 A.D. and the work of Petronius.

Different anecdotes of people being flogged or whipped during sexual activities exist from material dating back to the fourteenth century. Mezzotint and print media from the 16th century describing and depicting these activities have also been discovered, and some exist in museums today.

In spite of all these,  once upon a time, BDSM and sexual fetish practices could earn one jail time for indecency,  and even a few decades ago, it was something that was spoken of behind closed doors and practiced with a great deal of secrecy. With enlightenment, increased exposure, and globalization came a lot of changes, and at the forefront of these changes was sexual liberation.

Books like Fifty Shades of Grey and the works of Anaïs Nin also played their part in demystifying sexual appetites and tastes that deviated from the normal. The queer liberation movement also played a role in this. As a result, words like ‘kink’ and ‘BDSM” can now be used without much fear of being locked up of getting shamed on the front page of a newspaper.

As a consequence, more people are able to discover the different methods that satisfy their sexual appetites and are more open to discovering, pursuing,  and discussing their fetishes and kinks. A sexually repressed society is volatile, so this is undoubtedly a great development.

What Is Impact Play And Erotic Spanking?

An example of a kink is impact play. Impact play is a form of human sexual practice in which one partner is struck repeatedly by the other for the sexual gratification of both parties. It may be practiced within the context of a BDSM or D/s (dominant/submissive) relationship. Alternatively, otters could also be a sexual preference enjoyed by non-BDSM (also known as Vanilla) partners.

An impact play kink is usually accompanied by a fetish for whips, paddles, floggers, and similar items used in the practice. Impact play can be broken down into different classes, usually depending on the title equipment used, as well as the types of strokes.

 In erotic spanking, the sub is struck on the buttocks either with the top’s open hand or a rigid implement such as a paddle, cane, or riding crop. In the latter case, the activity is often referred to as paddling, caning, or cropping.

Erotic flagellation involves the sub being struck with a flexible implement, which could be a whip or belt. In some cases, braided silk rope or cotton cord may be used. The later items should, however, only be used by experts, as they may be harder to use correctly. Whips can be classified by how many falls they have:

Whips with single tails, such as a bullwhip, have a single fall. The associated activity is referred to as single tailing. Floggers, such as a cat o’ nine tails, a whip which traditionally has nine tails and was historically used for corporal punishment, have many falls. The associated activity is referred to as flogging.

Whatever your tool of choice and however you choose to practice it, impact play can be pleasurable if done safely and with consent. Gay men can also enjoy this kink with a little bit of knowledge and practice. The choice of toys is important, and this is a guide to help you choose your very first impact play toy.

Paddles are the most basic and most straightforward class of impact toys. They are also the easiest to use, as there are no thin, flexible parts that can cause injury. A  paddle is a toy that consists of a flat, hard surface attached to a handle. The handle is usually grasped, while the paddle is used to strike.

Some paddles may have cutouts or raised areas, which serve to intensify the sensation,  as well as create patterns on the skin, which may be arousing to the dom or whoever is doing the spanking. Makeshift paddles can also be made from slippers, pink bonk pallets, hairbrushes, etc.

A whip is one of the more complex impact toys. It usually consists of a narrow, flexible length of material – or in the case of multi-tailed whips, several lengths – that can be used in kink play. Whips can be made out of different materials, including leather, rubber or latex, plastic, raffia, chains, horsehair, and rope.

They come in different variations like single- vs. multi-tailed, braided vs. not, long vs. short, etc. Although one of the more iconic features of the whip is the cracking sound it makes as it moves through the air, it is highly discouraged to attempt that on a human body, as that noise means that the whip is sure to cause undue harm.

Instead, the whip should be applied firmly but lightly to avoid any serious bruises. Cheap whips or whips not made specifically for kink play should be avoided. It’s also a good idea to take lessons from experts and practice with inanimate objects before attempting to whip a person.

Gay Whip


A strap is similar to a whip, but while a whip usually tapers off at the end and is thing enough to crack, a strap is usually the same width from tip to base and is wider than whips.

It is usually made of leather and can be substituted with a belt. Just make sure that the belt is a real leather belt, amend be sure to use the side without the buckle.


Crops are also classic impact play tools,  and the image of a tall, statuesque Dom dressed in gear and wielding one threateningly comes to mind when you think of them. A crop is made up of a long, stiff handle, called a tress, attached to a flexible, flat, or looped end. The latter is called a tongue, while the former is called a look.

The tress may be made of wood or plastic, while the other end is usually made of leather or cord. The flat end may be shaped like a heart, star, or palm, which will cause patterns on the skin when it is used. Crops are smaller than paddles yet easier to control than whips. This versatility makes them great for focused striking on places such as the feet, the insides of the thighs, the breasts, etc.; the shaft could also be used as a cane.

When you’re buying a crop, check for finished edges on the tress, tight sewing, and a tress covered in smooth, flat braiding.

A cane has a long, thin, somewhat narrow, and rounded shaft. It can expect to be more malleable and almost whip-like,  and it can also be stiffer. A cane could be made of wood, plastic, acrylic, and even metal or glass. The latter ones are usually reserved for BDSM experts. It could also have a handle wrapped in leather to expedite gripping.

Sticks and branches directly from trees also fall under this category, but it is not advisable to use them, as they may carry dirt and germs, which may lead to infections. Instead,  purchase a BDSM cane made specifically for this purpose. Canes also require some level of expertise to use, so consult a veteran practitioner and ask questions before attempting to use one.

These four are the classes of impact toys, but there are a few, more niche toys that are best described as a hybrid of one or more of the above. These include tawse, quirt, slapper, baton, and scourge.
