  • Strap-on sex can be a very enjoyable activity that can be shared between two people, and it also is a fun way to experiment with having different-sized dildos and genitals. A strap-on also allows the wearer to go on and on for as long as the wearer’s energy will last as a dildo will not orgasm or become soft. Strap-on harnesses also allow for an aspect of fantasy play and the ability to try out a gender that the wearer is curious about. Many women are surprised by the “power” they feel once they put on their strap-on harness and dildo.

 

  • Choosing a strap-on harness, while not difficult, does require some forethought to make sure that you purchase the strap-on harness that will be best for you:

 

  • Step 1: Your Fantasy: The first step in deciding what strap-on harness to choose will be whether you are looking for a strap-on harness that goes on the hips or on other body parts. Other harnesses can fit on the thigh, the wrist, the foot, the chin, or elsewhere. Decide whether you want to do penetration from the hips or if you’d like the penetration to occur elsewhere on your body.

 

  • Step 2: Your Current Set-Up: If what you need is a hip harness, you’ll need to keep in mind whether you have a penis or not. Penis-owners can wear made-for-female strap-on harnesses, but it may press uncomfortably against the testicles and penis. If you have a penis, you’ll want to look into the strap-on harnesses specifically made for men while, if you have a vagina, the made-for-female strap-on harnesses will work well for you.

 

  • Step 3: Choose your Style: If you want a strap-on harness that goes around the hips, decide what style of harness you’re looking for. There are three main styles: g-string, jock-strap, and panty. G-String harnesses have one strap that runs between the legs while jock-strap harnesses include two straps that run underneath the butt cheeks. A panty style harness is just a full-coverage panty that also includes a ring in the front to hold the dildo you’ll be strapping on.

 

  • If you want to be penetrated or have your partner touch your genitals while wearing the harness, the jock-strap style harness is your best choice. If you want something that’s easy to slip on and get straight to pleasure, a panty-style or g-string harness will be your best choice. Jock-strap style harnesses tend to have the most stability for your strap-on dildo if you want something that is the most stable.

 

  • Step 4: Choose your Material: Once you know what style of strap-on harness you want, pay attention to the materials in your strap-on harness. Some harnesses are made of leather while some are made of vinyl or nylon. Decide which material will feel best and also will accomplish the “look” you’re going for. (Black leather tends to look the most “kinky” while pink or sparkly vinyl could look more playful)

 

  • Step 5: Choose your Size: Finally, look at the options available in your body size. You want to make sure that the harness you purchase will work for your body. Harnesses come in many sizes, so studying the sizes (most go by the hip measurement) and making sure it will fit is an important step in this process. For plus-size bodies, many of the g-string and jock-strap harnesses are offered in plus-sizes. The panty-style harnesses are not offered in plus-size as often, but a couple of harnesses do exist.

 

  • Step 6: Now that you’ve narrowed down your choices, pick out which one of the harnesses works best for you and your budget! Happy strappin’!
