  • love a stingy sensation

  • need a suitable flogger for very heavy-duty impact play
  • prefer genuine leather

Fifty Shades of Grey Bound to You Flogger is sleek and elegant medium-sized flogger made of faux leather. The slim falls give your lashings an unexpected stingy feel rather than the thuddy sensation you could often expect from a flogger of this size. A perfect option for adventurous beginners and intermediate kinksters who need a flogger that will teach their sub a lesson or two.

If Goldilocks Had a Flogger

When I unboxed the Fifty Shades of Grey Bound to You Flogger I was pleasantly surprised by the size and feel of it. It was a bit bigger than I had expected but not too big. At the same time, it seemed pretty lightweight! Even though I don’t have a membership for any sex clubs in my area (yet), my first thought was that it would be great to bring with me to any kinky scene! All in all, it seemed not too big, not too small, but juuuust right! However, in the beginning the falls were a bit crooked. The faux leather isn’t quite as flexible and heavy as real leather, and they had temporarily taken on the shape they had been packaged in. Although, I just hung it upright for a few days, and the falls were nice and straight after that!

Surprised by the Sting!

Since there aren’t that many falls on the flogger, it isn’t particularly thick. Those falls are also pretty slim. This makes for a flogger that actually delivers a more stingy sensation upon impact than a thuddy one. When I first ordered the flogger, I was definitely expecting something thicker that delivered some thuddy yet firm lashings. Although, I’m actually not disappointed! I didn’t know that I was going to like the sting so much! Testing out the flogger on myself, I quickly got the feeling that this little tool would be a bit more intimidating to me than I had initially expected. To me, that was kind of a good thing… A new addition to my collection that can actually make my inner sub shake at the knees a little bit. That seems healthy once in a while, right?

I really like the overall design of the Fifty Shades of Grey Bound to You Flogger. The criss-cross design on the handle is pretty cool, and I think the small brand logo on the bottom of the handle is nice and subtle. I personally don't love it when the brand takes up too much space visually. Again the falls are pretty slim (just about 0.2 inches or 0.5 cm in width) and this really plays a part in the stingy feeling the impact has. Although the flogger isn't "too" thin or flimsy. It looks pretty big and sturdy, but feels a bit more light-weight.

I think floggers in general take a little bit more getting used to than riding crops of spanking paddles. You just need to practice a few times to get the right angle, speed, and intensity. The Fifty Shades of Grey Bound to You Flogger is no exception but I will say that it's actually a bit easier to handle than some other floggers. Compared to a "regular" leather flogger that's thicker and heavier, this light-weight tool is much less intimidating and easier to use!

The Fifty Shades of Grey Bound to You Flogger is pretty good quality item. While all the seams look quite neat and the crooked falls did straighten out after a few days, I wouldn't say it's the most durable thing in the whole world. I don't know if I see it holding it up too well for long-term heavy duty use, but for milder punishments that serve a little sting, I think this is a pretty great flogger. Especially for a faux leather flogger that doesn't have that weight to it, it still has a good size and feels relatively sturdy!

I'd say the Fifty Shades of Grey Bound to You Flogger is available at a very reasonable price point. Obviously it's not the cheapest option on the market, but I believe price, quality, performance, and practicality all meet in the middle here. You're getting a good quality faux leather flogger that delivers relatively intense sensation, and is easy to bring with you on the go!

The Fifty Shades of Grey Bound to You Flogger definitely surprised me in terms of the actual sensation on impact. Then it also impressed me in terms of intensity! I feel like I don't have to put much effort into my lashings for them to have the desired effects. It also feels really nice and ticklish when used for light sensation play! The sturdy, long handle is comfortable to hold as well.

The packaging for the Fifty Shades of Grey Bound to You Flogger was simple yet impressive! A simple paper bag with the flogger inside of a satin-y storage pouch. Some sex toys that really should be in a storage bag will often come without one included, so I'm used to being a bit disappointed here. Although, I definitely wasn't expecting something like a flogger having a storage bag included in the packaging. This also makes it even more practical to bring with you on trips!

The Fifty Shades of Grey Bound to You Flogger is made mostly of PU leather. It can easily wiped down with a damp cloth for cleaning. While it is splashproof, I would avoid getting it too wet while you're in the heat of the moment! You can store it in the incuded drawstring pouch so it's safely tucked away from any dust (or curious eyes) but I actually prefer to lay it out flat or hang it to avoid the falls from becoming crooked again.

  • Light-weight and easily portable
  • Loop handle for secure grip
  • Powerful stingy sensation
  • Classic BDSM aesthetic

  • May feel more intense than expected
  • Not suitable for heavy-duty impact play

I really like the Fifty Shades of Grey Bound to You Flogger! I think it's perfect for beginners who want to take things up a notch from smaller, flimsier floggers in terms of size, aesthetics, and intensity. I also think intermediate users would still get a kick out the sharp, stingy sensation that this little torture device can provide! It looks and feels like it would belong in any kinky BDSM dungeon. However, I wouldn't recommend this to any advanced users who are looking for something to leave a big mark or deliver very intense pain. It's a bit underwhelming if you're already used to using larger, heavier, genuine leather floggers. But for me and my flogger needs as an adventurous intermediate, it's a good quality piece that's pretty affordable! I was a bit surprised by how sharp the stingy sensation is upon impact, but also a bit surprised that I like it!

There aren’t any instructions available on how to use the Fifty Shades of Grey Bound to You Flogger. Although, it’s not a very difficult toy to use, once you’ve gotten the hang of it. For a more detailed guide on floggers in general, check out our blog post on “How to Use Whips & Floggers“!

The short answer is: yes. Floggers are obviously often meant to hurt. This one, however, is a bit more painful than I had expected. It feels slightly more intense than other floggers I've tried to so far even though it's lightweight! Keep that in mind.

The PU leather is easy to wipe down with a damp cloth when you need to clean!

I'd opt for the larger, more "meaty" areas of the body, like the buttocks, thighs, or sometimes the back. Not only will these areas be easier to target for impact, they'll make the impact feel a lot deeper and, well, impactful, without necessarily feeling too intense! These areas are also safer to target if you're engaging in some serious impact play.
