Gawain Posted December 18, 2017 I whip myself regularly on my bare behind, and it works fine for me. My Profile includes a photo of one of the knotted Whipping Ropes I use. If I start in the right mindset I can get a sort of Spiritual Experience from it, as Herr Krafft-Ebing described in his original book. My Self-Flagellaion Rope designs are historically authentic, though made from plasticky 6mm PolyPropylene rope, as supplied by Homebase / Bunnings here in the UK. Is anybody interested in making similar Self-Flagellation Ropes and trying it themselves? Several designs are possible. You just need to get obsessed with different kinds of knots, and tying lots of them.
