An ornate and original spin on the dragontail whip, this offering from Sex and Metal is
a gothic orgy of intricate design.
The short handle starts menacingly, with a weighted
spur attached to the steel ball. Traveling up the thin shaft are tight coils
of braided steel roping to its faux flower petal guard which culminating below
the four small spikes where the fall meets the handle.
Mimicking the curvature of a lily,
the soft leather is folded cylindrically, terminating in a flat end with two eyelets. Attached
by two chains is the cracker, a long, single, scorpion-tailed piece of
leather that delivers a punishing sting - a lasting reminder to let sleeping dragons lie.
