Guide to Strap Ons

Got a case of penis envy?

Strap on sex toys basically let someone use a dildo like a man would use his penis. A strap on user generally dons a special harness around their waist and legs. Then some mechanism – usually a rubber O ring – is used to hold a dildo securely in place over the user’s crotch so they can use it for sexual intercourse like a real penis.

Also known as plastic penises, strap ons are most often used during role reversal or pegging. A few lesbian couples who enjoy penetration also use strap ons with non-phallic designs. Some men who have difficulty achieving an erection or who are unhappy with their size can slip their cock inside a hollow dildo strap on to still pleasure their partner.

Strap ons are most often sold as kits, so the user gets a harness and compatible dildo at the same time. The major differences are how the dildo attaches to the harness and the dildo itself. Be sure any harness you buy has a sturdy and secure method for attaching the dildo. Otherwise, your sex toy will flip and flop around as you try to use it before eventually falling off all together and ruining the fun for both you and your partner.

There are few specialty strap on sex toys that don’t use a harness. These so-called strapless strap ons feature a special plug on the end that the user can insert into her pussy and clench her Kegel muscles to hold it in place during sex. Most strap on users; however, don’t have the Kegel strength necessary to use a strapless strap on for any extended period of time.
