You then simply attach the suction cup to the o-rings on the harness and slip yourself into it, and you would then be ready to peg and play with your partner. So Strap ons are a very versatile sex toy that can be used by anyone.

What is a strap on?

A strap on is a type of sex toy that is designed to be worn either with a harness or without. Strap on dildos without a harness are usually called strapless strap ons or strapless dildos. Strap ons that require harnesses and dildos are made from a wide variety of materials, and often have various different shapes and sizes that can all be attached to a harness. There are different ways in which harnesses are attached to the dildo, with the most common one being via a O-Ring. Strap ons can be used in many different ways including for vaginal sex, oral sex, mutual masturbation and anal penetration.

What are the different types of Strap Ons?

There are many different types of strap ons, all of which are designed to stimulate different erogenous zones and also to be worn by different people. Below is a brief list of the different types of strap ons:

Strap On Dildos

Strap on dildos are some of the most popular types of strap ons. They either feature a realistic dildo or non-phallic dildo. Non-phallic dildos are ones that do not resemble human genitalia so are very popular types of lesbian sex toys. Strap on dildos are often used for pegging. Pegging is a sexual practice where a women performs anal sex on a man by penetrating his anus with a strap on. Pegging has become more and more popular as the taboos around male anal stimulation drop.

Strap on dildos are joined to a harness in many different ways, this may be by a two-strap, three-strap, corset or even a vac-u-lock system. All of these are different types of designs that allow the dildo to be held to the harness.

Strap On Vibrators

Strap on vibrators are just like strap on dildos, however they have an additional function. This is that they vibrate. The additional vibration provides even more stimulation to both partners erogenous zones. If a women is wearing the harness she will be able to feel the vibrations on her vulva, whilst her partner will also be able to feel the vibrations. If her partner is female then she may be able to feel the vibrations on her clitoris, or g-spot. If her partner is male then the vibrations will travel through his anus, and may even stimulate his scrotum.

There are a variety of different styled vibrating strap ons. In fact, many harnesses feature a pocket that allows you to put a bullet vibrator in to it, which will turn any strap on dildo into a vibrator. Other strap ons may feature a rabbit vibrator design to provide clitoral and even more internal stimulation to the receiving partner.

Strapless Strap Ons

Strapless Strap Ons are a type of strap on that does not require harness. Strapless strap ons usually feature a bulb at one end that is designed to be inserted into the wearers vagina. These bulbs often feature vibrators giving the wearer even more stimulation. The other end of the strapless strap on is longer and is designed for vaginal penetration. So fundamentally a strapless strap on is a type of double dildo that allows for the wearer to thrust easier into their partner, mimicking sexual intercourse.

Strapless dildos are great fun, however they do require strong pelvic floor muscles in order to keep it held in. In order to strengthen your pelvic floor muscles you should do regular kegel exercises with love eggs.

Hollow Strap Ons

A hollow strap on is a sex toy that is purposefully designed to be worn by a man. A strapless strap on usually features a hollow dildo that allows for the man to put his genitalia into it. Hollow strap ons are great for men who suffer from erectile dysfunction as it means that they can give their partner a full erect feeling by simply strapping in. They are also great for men who want to give their partner a little bit more in the length and girth department.

Some hollow strap ons will also feature a vibration function which gives both partners even more sexual stimulation than usual.

Dual Penetration Strap Ons

Dual penetration strap ons or double penetration strap ons are usually two dildos moulded to the base of a harness. One of these dildos is for vaginal penetration, and one for anal penetration. The harness would then also feature a dildo allowing for the wearer to experience stimulation whilst their partner also experiences a thrusting sensation.

How do you use a strap on?

You use strap on’s in a variety of different ways. Depending on the type of strap on you own will depend on the way the strap on is used. Most strap ons are very straight forward to use and require you to tighten the harness to your waist. Strapless strap ons require you to gently insert the bulb into your vagina and then gently penetrating your partner. If whilst using a strapless dildo you find that the bulb keeps falling out, then try making a hole in a pair of tights and pushing the long shaft through the hole. The tights will then support the bulb, helping to prevent it from falling out.
