Out of shop Dec 2nd th Have you ever seen someone using two floggers at once in a coordinated fluid motion that lands flashy rhythmic strikes on their target? You were probably watching what is commonly called Florentine flogging.
Florentine is the practice of using one flogger in each hand in an overlapping pattern that has a focused target area. Over the years Florentine has grown in popularity to wrongly be considered indicative of flogger mastery. Shrouded in mystery, hailed as the one and the only path to true flogging bliss, Florentine is surrounded by so much false information that everyone thinks it is much more complicated than it really is.
Learning the pattern takes practice, repeatedly trying and failing, and taking breaks and coming back. I will go over the specifics of the pattern in a bit. As far as the style of flogger, the best style is the one you are most comfortable with. It is possible to Florentine with nearly any style of flogger, traditional, finger flogger, palm flogger, ball handle, etc.
You can do the Florentine motion pattern with pencils if you are so inclined once you get the motion down. Keep in mind, Florentine flogging is only using two floggers in a particular pattern. What I mean by matched pair; two floggers in the same style, made from the same leather, with the same length of how to flog. Usually, people tend to purchase pairs of floggers labeled as Florentine pairs because two floggers made by the same maker at the same time will be more perfectly matched than ones that are not.
Floggers labeled as Florentine Floggers are not different from any other flogger in any way other than they have been made similarly so that they match in weight and length. The answer is the same as above.
Different styles of flogger will change your flogging style slightly. What you do NOT want to do is be trying to adjust to a new flogger style while learning Florentine. Learn with what you are already comfortable with.
This is not to say that there are no legitimate uses for Florentine style, but what I am getting at is that a lot of the how to flog around this style is centered on looking cool. You can be a great flogger top without Florentine. Once you learn the Florentine pattern it becomes an automatic motion, just like riding a bike. This is good because it allows you to focus your attention on your bottom where it should be rather than concentrating so hard on your technique.
Florentine creates a repeating adjustable flow of sensation for the bottom. What I mean by that is you can Florentine softly to warm them up, fast and hard to wake them up or ramp the impact up and down in intensity and speed to create a rollercoaster that has no pauses. The rhythmic nature of it has fewer pauses between strikes. This means the bottom receives a constant stream of sensation that the top can play with. The most common Florentine Flogging stroke patterns are called 4 point and 6 point. Each point is a directional stroke of each flogger. So if you did one horizontal strike with a single flogger, that would be one point.
If you hit twice with one flogger in a figure eight motion that would be two points. Six point is each flogger having three directional strokes. Each flogger as an extra throw in its stroke in addition to the ones in four point.
Below is a video showing four point and six point. The best way to learn in my opinion? Get a pair of floggers and watch this video and try to emulate the hand motions.
Just try to get the four basic hand motions of four point down first. Start with just the first hand motion. Most people start with their dominant hand and the other follows. Four point and six point are the main Florentine patterns and most other Florentine flogging is just adding flourishing strokes to one of these.
Hopefully, you found this guide helpful. Florentine is a great tool to have in your arsenal, but keep in mind that the hype built around it can be overblown. In reality, most people use it for parts of a scene but vary between stroke styles throughout their play.
