Stephen smiled against Adrian's skin. "You are good, really good." It was too easy to give Adrian a choice, to ask what he wanted, but it was too dangerous, it would be too easy for Adrian to slip up.
"The suede builds up and burns," he said, trying to give Adrian an idea of what would happen. "When that happens we switch to a horse-hair flogger. It feels like silk at first, but it builds fast. After that, we'll see." If this had been an experienced sub, he wouldn't have even told him, the surprise almost as good as the pain, but they had never used any of these instruments.
He gave Adrian another kiss before stepping back. He started the flogging again, the tails falling heavy on Adrian's upper back, and then moving down to his arse and ties, spreading the burn through his body.
