What is a strap on harness?

A strap on harness is a penis shaped sex toy that can be strapped around a woman’s waist. It is usually for women who like bringing ultimate pleasure to their female partners, but men can use this toy as well. They can be on both sides of the harness depending on their desires. Whichever the case, couples love a strap on with harness as it can give the pleasure to their partner like nothing else since it can be used without hands unlike a classic dildo or a vibrator. These toys evolved over the years and there are many to choose from on the today’s sex toy market.

Types and main characteristics

There are many types of strap on harnesses on the market. Some are used exclusively by women while others are for men only. For example a male strap on harness is a hollow one so a man can put his penis inside the toy similarly to a penis sleeve. There are also strapless toys that stay on by having a part which is inserted into the user’s anus. Double penetration harnesses are also a popular choice and mouth gag strap-ons are a thing as well. Here are some of the most popular types of strap on harnesses:

  • Hollow – this is a strap on harness for men since it has a hollow part where you can insert your penis. The toy is meant to compensate for the lack of length and girth so choose a toy that’s bigger than your penis.
  • Dual pleasure – a dual strap on harness can bring pleasure to both the user and their partner. It works by having a part that’s inserted into the user’s anus and a classic dildo shaped front part for the partner.
  • Double penetration – A strap on with two dildos attached to it that can be used for vaginal and anal penetration at the same time.
  • Vibrating – Almost all of these types have a vibrating edition. A vibrating strap-on harness works just like any regular vibrator, and it usually uses batteries.

How to choose the best strap on harness?

For you to choose the best strap-on harness you have to get the hang on how these toys actually work. Essentially, there are three parts to this toy:

  • The harness – this is the part of the toy that goes around your waist. It is constructed from a series of belts and straps that are meant to hold the toy firmly in place.
  • The O-ring – An O-ring is a hole in the front middle part of the toy where you can attach the dildo of your choice.
  • The dildo – You can put the dildo you prefer in the O-ring. Some strap on harnesses come with a fixed dildo, while others are interchangeable.

Choosing the right size

This all comes down to your and your partner’s preferences. If you are a beginner in this type of sex play, make sure to not choose a plus size strap on harness right away. Maybe start with a small one instead and see how it feels. If you are an experienced user, you will probably have no trouble figuring this out on your own. For dual strap on harnesses make sure to know how big you like the anal part to be. If you get this wrong and this part provides a painful experience, the toy will practically lose its purpose, and it will be unusable. For double penetration, ones make sure to put a smaller dildo for the part that goes into the anus, and a bigger one for vaginal penetration. However, this can also depend on what your partner likes in the first place, so make sure to figure it out with him or her. When it comes to the O-ring diameters, there are practically four sizes you can choose from 1.25, 1.5, 1.75, and 2 inches. There might also be some smaller or bigger ones, but these are most commonly seen on the market. As for the straps, they are adjustable.

Choosing the right material: shape and texture

There are two things that you should pay attention to when it comes to the material of strap-on harnesses. First of all, the harness itself is very important since it should feel comfortable at all times. Having a comfortable strap on harness means that it stays in place the whole time and that it doesn’t cause any irritation to the skin when you use it. If you have discomfort while using the toy, you can easily put it on your shorts, boxers, or panties. Strap on harness shorts is also an option. The other thing is the main part of the toy – the dildo. Most dildos are made from silicon nowadays as it has been proven to be the best material both when it comes to feeling and maintenance. A leather strap on harness is also an option, and it exists for both hollow and filled out version. Although glass and steel dildos are a thing, they are rare when it comes to strap-ons since they are heavy and not very practical in this type of situation. When it comes to shape and texture, dildos are usually made to mimic the appearance of a real penis. Most of them will have veiny textures and a realistically looking penis head. However, there are some interesting shapes out there that are ribbed, beaded, curved, etc.

How to use a strap on harness?

Using a strap on harness might look a bit complicated, but that’s not really the case. The main thing you will need to know is how the adjust the straps to your thigh and legs, so the toy stays in place, and also how to attach a dildo if it’s not already on. This should not be too hard to figure out since most of these toys come with simple instructions on how to put them together. Definitely, the most important thing for any sex toy user should be the hygiene. The straps are not as important, but the dildo part needs to be cleaned thoroughly for you and your partner to avoid any nasty infections. Clean the dildo with light soap and water or boil it for a few minutes. It is also important to clean the toy afterward. As with most insertable toys, lubrication can always be of great help. Use water-based lube so the dildo can slide right in without causing pain and discomfort. Keep the toy in the package you got it from and made sure it is not exposed to any heat or moisture.
