Thank you for a great instructible.

I have made about 6 of these just for fun. It's quick, easy, and fun. If you like tying knots. I use them to keep stray animals away from the house. I DON'T HIT THEM. Just swing it through the air and frighten them away. I recommend tying a blood knot on the ends of the falls. Gives great weight to the swing.

Nice instructable. Who says it has to be an "adult" instructable. It could be a very nice cheap way to make some film props. Props for a rennaisance fair....etc.
Sometimes peoples minds need to think "outside the box" of only adult toys.
Thanks for making this.
Thanks!
This is exactly what i was looking for! although i might think of adding some kind of dowel down the center of the handle for added sturdiness.

I'm all for adults doing what they want in the privacy of their own home and what not, but this is a family site.  The instructable is cool, but the link to your blog is not really appropriate, I think.  I know I wouldn't want my 11 year old stumbling across it.

Again, this isn't a thing about what is right and wrong for adults.  It's about kids being on the site.
While I'm sure others have responded to your post in regards to the Flogger however, since I am here for this instructable specifically, I don't feel it necessary to read the rest. I have wanted to make a whip of similiar design (but of leather untill reading this) for a couple of years. For the record, I am a decent young (27 years) man with only positive, consentual, recreational uses of such a device. Be them sexual, or not, is irrelevant to you or any other readers. While I don't speak for other users or on behalf of the site, its custodians or this instructables author, I strongly disagree with all you have too say. EVERYTHING. Firstly where does this site state it is for family enjoyment purposes? I don't have one. Secondly, since this is an all-access site geared to no specific sub-population, its content reflects appropriately just that. The content in this submission has one detrimental point to my case and that is the advertisement of the submitters personal website. On that note, I will be reporting this as a violation to the site administrators. Regardless, the internet, with its vast amounts of information, is not a tool of which does not require mentorship, training, education and MOST CERTAINLY NOT CENSORSHIP. Should you so choose to allow your children to access this wonderous resource without due chaparoning, that is your choice and I choose to respect your choices. If you haven't noticed, the wide-eyed curious youngsters of today have little interest in this sort of thing due to media influences and social pressures. I prefer the policy of education rather than disassociation. The end result can produce a well rounded being rather than an unwise fool. Some of the sickest people I've known have come from families of sheltered bliss and closeted comfort. Judge not yest ye be judge good sir. While the world can be a harsh place, it's also the most beautiful and surreal in the galaxy. Show them what you need too and the world will show them what it does. Keep the shelters for the homeless. Kids are intelligent and even more adaptable to todays world than you yourself are. I hope you have a wonderful 2010 Winter Solstice
I think you misunderstood what I was saying. I have no problem with what you do in the privacy of your house. If you're into this, and you enjoy it, good for you.

This site, however, is not geared towards adults only, and a good part of the population of this site is young teens. In my opinion, this type of post doesn't belong on a website with a mix of adults and "pre-adults." You wouldn't, for instance, advertise an adult magazine on the Disney Channel. I view it as the same thing..

That being said, I marked this as inappropriate almost a year ago, and it's still here. So, the community, or at least it's moderators, must think it's OK. I've stated my opinion, and I'm fine with the final outcome.

PS: I don't actively monitor my kids activity on the Internet because I have setup a content scanning proxy server their web traffic goes through, and it filters out the stuff they shouldn't see. Some day I'll have to come up with a better plan when the figure out things like portable software and live Linux CDs. But I'm safe from that for now.

You used a pretty horrible metaphor for your case. As RadicalJad stated, this site has no target audience. So comparing it to Disney Channel is a poor metaphor because Disney Channel has a taget audience. I am 15 myself and was looking around here and am perfectly fine with this. I would actually like to know how to make something like this in the future. I know that you have a certain safety for your kids and want what is best for them, but that doesn't mean that they shouldn't at least know what this is for. Also, my understanding is, is that kids have an insatiable curiosity. So if you try to make it forbidden then they will keep wondering, "Why isn't my parent letting me see this? I wonder what could be so bad about this that they don't me to know what it means." The forbidden fruit tastes the sweetest. That is why kids have sex at a younger age, because it is forbidden, because they know they aren't supposed to do it. If I had kids I would want to shield them from the really nasty things until they are old enough to handle them, but I would let them fuel their curiosity.

my parents never sheltered me from anything sex related they talked to me about it from a young age and i came out a fully functioning member of society who can have healthy relationships if you are worried about your children and sex talk to them about it because they will find out about it one way or another.
Hey! Eleven year olds might have an obnoxious younger sibling that could use an attitude adjustment. This would be perfect for that.

I Apology's for my blog's I have Added a warning to My link.... Hopefully that will help your concerns.
A warning isn't really enough. If you say "my blog" it's an easy job to find it, if a person wants to. Having been there looked at recent stuff (and thought, that looks like me!) - no way should you be posting a link to that sort of content here.

L
Thanks for that.  Like I said, I don't have a problem with the site, or the lifestyle, just the link in front of minors.
omnibot mrmath4 years ago
A family site? That sounds a little bit bigoted, I mean we are talking about a site which openly explains how to make dangerous chemicals, high-voltage devices, explosives and spy gear. A BDSM blog seems like a minor problem in that context.
Kiteman omnibot4 years ago
It is not inappropriate for children to see or know about those projects, and they can only attempt them with their family's knowledge.

The blog link, however, contains material which is inappropriate for minors to see.

This site is known for its family-and school-friendly content.  I know a number of teachers (including me) who use projects from this site in their lessons, or who direct their pupils to the site as a resource.  Imagine the consequences for those staff if parents found their children's teacher had directed their child to look at NSFW materials!

don't forget to melt the ends so they don't fray. and if you're feeling adventurous, you can put small weights of beads on the ends ;)
Its a cotton rope. And melted ends can cut.
That's part of the fun!
exactly what I was thinking :D
never mind then
EGT19844 years ago
 What I did with mine was tie a double knot on the end to stop fraying and add some more weight. BTW I used a polyester rope with agreeable results.

Nice instructable! And nice compromise with the blog link. Yes this site is browsed by children - but adults far more often! A non-clickable, warning-accompanied link is more than appropriate.

Kudos :)

Last one up The Old Sea-Dog get's a lick of the cat'.
This is a variation on the old cat-o'nine-tails I guess?
Nice knotting.

do you just work in rope...or do you do leather as well? (i'm at work so i'm not going to your blog)

at the risk of being spammish, you should check out Leatherworker.net it's a user community of leatherworkers from across teh globe and there's a lot of info about stuff like this
Morethanjustknots (author)  crapflinger4 years ago
OK I'm sorry about the link, and the content on my site...
FYI... I just Removed the link to my site... so there is no direct link from instructables to my site, if any one want to go through the trouble to see my site they now have to copy and paste.
I hope this helps, and i hope you see that I'm trying to accommodate as much as i can.

i wasn't complaining about your link....children on the internet will find anything they want to...with a direct link or not

just saying if you're interested in leatherwork...that's a great place to go

I also think you should remove the Link from the instructable.  Not only is not appropriate for a "family friendly" site, it is also nsfw.  Clicking on a link and having genitalia pop unto my screen is unsettling at work, and I repeat a violation of this sites policy.
Very cool. 5 stars.
