Sportsheets Paint Brush Whip

The whip

The Paint Brush Whip is a small flogger/whip by Sportsheets that is sold by FunWares. The whip is about thirteen inches long, and at the widest point, it’s about three inches in width. The handle is made from leather while the tails of this whip are made from rubber. The toy is suitable for all skill levels with impact toys. This toy DOES contain latex which may cause an allergic reaction if you’re allergic to latex.

The packaging is pretty basic. It comes in a plastic bag that is meant to protect the whip from harm or messes during shipping. The whip itself comes with a little tag that says “Paint Brush Whip” on it, and it is actually one of the neatest little tags that I’ve seen on a product. It looks cute. It’s easy to remove as well.

As you can tell, this whip is supposed to resemble a little paintbrush. It actually does a great job of that! It it had real bristles instead of the rubber tails that it had, I would actually believe that this was a paintbrush. The handle of the paintbrush is made from layers of leather instead of wood or plastic, and the “brush” is made from rubber tails that are about five inches long. The brush includes a hanging strap at the end of the handle. This strap is a hanging strap and not a handling strap as it isn’t large enough to really be a handling strap.

The whip is well-made as well. The handle seems to be made up of about three of four different layers of leather that are sewn together with strong stitching towards the outer edges of the handle. The handle is thicker than most impact toy handles, but it’s not uncomfortably so. The Sportsheets logo is etched onto the handle of the whip, and the rubber tails seem to be sewn onto the handle through two rows of stitching. I’ve had no issues with any of the rubber tails falling off, and I’ve tugged on them for testing quite a bit. You’re more likely to break a rubber tail in half by tugging too much than you are to have one fall off which is a testament to the good quality of this item.

The tails of the whip

It handles really well. It’s not heavy, but it’s not uncomfortably light-weight either. You can definitely do nice flicks of the wrist while using this. The handle easily fits into your hand (much like a paintbrush would), and it’s easy to grab onto. When handling, you do have to be moderately careful to avoid getting a slap-back from the rubber tails when hitting someone with it though. The slap-back can definitely be painful, and the tails are long enough to do it if you draw the flogger back to your arm or to a part of your body after you swing.

It definitely is stingy! If you’ve ever used one of those rubber floggers, this handles about the same way. It is stingy! If you hit with the middle portion of the rubber tails, it’s not nearly as bad, but if your strike tends to land with the edges of the tails on the skin, it’s going to be very stingy. It could possibly break the skin if you are being really rough with it and depending on how you hit. Obviously, using a quick flick of the wrist is more likely to hurt than just using it with half of the strength of your hand. You can make it sting less by taking wider, slower strokes where you just let the tails “fall” upon the person rather than doing an intent strike.

The bristles of the whip

The interesting thing about this sensation is how it’s set up though. Most floggers have all of the tails in a circular pattern which means that it reaches a smaller area. However, with the flogger set up in a horizontal-like fashion, it reaches a much larger area. It’s like comparing a circle to a large rectangle – the rectangle is going to cover more area in this case. This gives you a brush-like motion to strike your partner with, and it actually can cover a surprisingly large amount of area. The tails do tend to travel as a group, though, so you don’t have to be wary about some of the extra tails striking out.

Cleaning this whip is pretty simple. You just need to use some warm water and antibacterial soap on the rubber tails, but do be careful about the leather. Leather dislikes soap, so you should just use a slightly damp washcloth on the handle of the flogger. Try to keep this away from bodily fluids to preserve the life of it, and for best results, it should be hung up. Try to avoid putting it somewhere where the tails of the whip are bent as the rubber can retain “memory” of how it is stored.

Overall, the Sportsheets Paint Brush Whip is an easy-to-use whip that is definitely stingy, but the technique of how you use it makes all the difference. The whip itself is of great quality, and this is something that’s going to last you awhile. I would, however, make sure that you’re okay with a slight stinging sensation before you purchase as it can be a bit stingy. Thanks to FunWares for providing this bondage and restraints item for my Sportsheets Paint Brush Whip review.
