This flogger is made of genuine horse hair (from the steppes of Mongolia no less - not kidding). While it feels very lightweight, the sensation it provides is very distinct - loved or hated quite strongly by those who have felt its caresses !
Horse hair provides a mid-range sensation - much more intense than its overall weight suggests - which is mostly stingy. To me, it feels like a thousand little scratches when you are being flogged with the very tips of the falls.
This 'pony tail' of horse hair is finished with an elegant turned handle.
