There has been much written about what in essence is a few boot laces tied to a wooden handle or dowel, I did a similar thing for a while called a Lita'net, named after the beautiful lady that designed and ordered it, I sold a few but not many.
About 6 months back I had time to experiment and made something much more elaborate and beautiful, more in keeping with an Essentia design. It has this past few months been put through it's paces in a professional studio and passed rigorous use with flying colours, soon I will take better pictures with a real camera rather than my camera phone and will offer it for sale on the essentia floggers web site.
Keep checking back I have currently on test a whole range of Hybrid whips designed especially for the scene, and a couple of performance whips also, as well as that my take on some recently new to the market style of floggers....
A martinet is a short, scourge-like (multi-tail) type of whip made of a wooden handle and between 4 and 10 lashes, relatively short length. The lashes are usually made of leather, but sometimes soap-stiffened cords are used in place of leather. It is a traditional instrument of physical punishment for children in France and other European countries.
The martinet was often applied on the calves, so that the children did not have to disrobe. Otherwise it was usually applied on the bare buttocks, adding humiliation to the physical pain, like the English and Commonwealth caning, birching, naval boy's pussy, American paddling, et cetera.
It is generally considered abusive to use it for spanking children in modern times.
- The martinet is also used as an implement in erotic spanking scenes, like a flogger but more severe.
