Kinkly explains Tawse
The tawse is a whip that was often used in Scotland and England before it was abolished in the 1980s. This whip is now often used in BDSM. Made of solid leather with multiple tails on one end, it can be used for a flogging during a BDSM encounter. To ensure safety, it is good to discuss comfort and boundaries when using corporal punishment.
