Marilyn Manson and his girlfriend Dita Von Teese like to indulge in a variety of activities to keep their romance alive - including beating each other with whips.

Controversial rocker Manson and the sexy burlesque dancer have been dating for over two years, and Von Teese admits she often keeps a little black whip close to hand to keep her man in check.

Von Teese, who says she doles out beatings to her man with the deadly stick "when he needs it", adds, "We both know how to wield the whip pretty well. He's a good boy generally, so it's okay."

The brunette beauty admits her other favoured sexy accessories are feathers, black stockings, garter belts and extremely high heels.
