A dragon's tail is a kind of whip used in BDSM play consisting of a long, stiff handle and a single lash - usually made from leather or suede. The lash is a triangular shape (like a dragon's tail or tongue) with the wide end partially wrapped in a cylindrical shape protruding from the end of the handle. The thin pointed end of the triangle makes contact with the recipient’s skin upon striking.
With its shorter length, a dragon's tail whip has great accuracy. Because of this, it is easier to use than a classic, tail whip. Leather whips can also include beautiful details.
A dragon's tail whip is less commonly known as a dragon's tongue whip.
