Strap-On Play

Strap It On!


If you are choosing a harness-style strap-on, one of the most crucial elements of finding the perfect one is fit. The harness’ waistband should fit snugly around the hips If it is too loose it will slide during play, especially if used with a heavy toy. Thong style harnesses wear just like underwear and should have a large enough ‘rise’ (the length of the crotch of the harness) to sit comfortably on the hips with the panel squared directly over the pubic bone.


Four-strap harnesses (so called because four straps are attached to the panel to make up the waistband and leg straps) need to be snug at the hips, with the panel centred over the pubic bone, and the leg straps tightened right up underneath the butt cheeks. Four-strap harnesses are ‘crotchless,’ and a great choice for women to wear for easy-access


Harnesses with removable O-rings (which are used to secure the dong in place) can accommodate almost any size toy, so long as the toy has a flared base to prevent it from slipping through the ring. This means you only need to add new toys to your collection when you want to upsize or downsize, and not a brand new harness as well, keeping it cost-effective. Harnesses with sewed-in rings to hold dongs in place can only accommodate the size of toy originally provided with the harness. Harnesses with the toy fastened directly to the panel cannot be changed at all.

Strap-ons are to sex toys what Bluetooth is to cell phones – hands-free fun! Using a harness (or in a select few varieties, the kegel muscles), a dong is strapped to the pelvis and can now act as a prosthetic phallus to tease and please one’s partner. There are a several different styles available, many of which are unisex and can be worn by any gender, and a select few which are designed specifically for women.

Hollow Strap-Ons


Hollow strap-ons are ideal for men with erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation or who would like to enhance their natural size. The strap on is worn like underwear on the hips, and the penis fits directly inside the attached dong. This way, even if the penis becomes flaccid during intercourse, the sex can continue for as long as you’d like. Many colours and sizes are available to suit your individual needs. Make sure to lubricate both your penis and the toy itself before use to avoid chafing from the friction.

Strapless


Strapless strap-ons are designed to be worn by women. They consist of a bulbous end which is inserted inside the vagina and held tightly by the Kegel muscles. The other end of the toy hangs outside the body and creates the prosthetic phallus to be used on your partner. These toys are unique in that during sex both the wearer and their partner will get the sensation of having penetrative intercourse at the same time. They come in vibrating and non-vibrating varieties, and can be used in conjunction with some harnesses if beginners find it too difficult to hang on using their kegel muscles in the beginning.

Pegging


Pegging strap-ons function exactly the same as a regular harness strap-on, except they typically are packaged with a smaller anal dong to start. Because they are designed to be worn by women, they are usually (though not always) a four-strap style to allow for easy-access post-play. The small size dong makes them ideal for beginner couples whose goal is to allow the female to anally penetrate her male partner (a.k.a. “pegging”). You can always upgrade to a larger toy with experience.

Double Penetration


Double-penetration strap-ons are harnesses allow either a male to strap one dong above or below his penis or a female to strap two dongs on simultaneously which allows them to penetrate their female partner vaginally and anally at the same time. Typically the smaller of the dongs is positioned for anal use in the beginning but this can be changed to suit your partner, and many styles allow you to change out the size and shape of the dongs at will. Another version of this toy is the double- penetration cockring which is a stretchy ring worn by a male at the base of the shaft of the penis that has a small dong attached to it. While it does not fit as securely as a double penetration strap-on does, it is an alternative for those who don't like to wear a harness.
