This riding crop is not only sexy in the bedroom but also hanging on the wall. It is not gaudy or too flashy leaving it simple yet sleek. The crop is made with quality materials compared to other budget crops. The grip is lined with a "velvety" rubberized material allowing full control of the flexible pole and silver end. Being lightweight, it allows to get the job done without having distractions of being heavy, stiff, or loaded with extra material such as fringe that often get in the way or break off. I enjoyed that the end of the crop where impact is made is only about 2 inches wide and 3 inches long giving the receiver just enough to sting.
