Buggywhip is a term for a type of whip that is used in BDSM scenes for flogging another person or for self-flagellation. A buggywhip is a single thong whip, similar in design to a bullwhip, snake whip, or stock whip. It has a tough, rigid core and a flexible cracker at its end. It gets its name because it is similar in design to the whips once used to drive horses-drawn buggies.
The name buggywhip is sometimes written as two words: buggy whip. A buggywhip may also be called a coachwhip.
