We all know that natural languages can be whispered and we use whispering for several purposes, e.g., to avoid someone unwanted listening, or in order not to disturb a larger audience. But are there conlangs that are designed to whispered and don't have a "fully voiced" form?

I am aware of Dritok and I'd like to hear from more of them!

The Whispering Language is designed for communicating with deaf-mutes -- a language that can easily be lipread.

Ahtialan came to be used as a whisper language.

Xylphika only rarely demonstrates voicing.

Parseltongue seems to be compounded of sibilants and voiceless vowels.
