Out of the hundreds of styles of strapon harness out there, sometimes narrowing down the best one for you and your lover can be a difficult task. Between getting a harness that fits you best, works with your own sex toys, and isn’t impossible to clean, picking out the right strapon harness is a bit like picking out a car! (Thankfully, a whole lot less expensive.) If you’re new to the strap-on world, here’s a brief overview of the basic styles of strapon harnesses.
One-Piece Strapon Harnesses – This is the style that most novices pick up, as they tend to be the most affordable and least complex. A single dildo is completely connected to a harness which can be either taken on and off similar to underwear, or strapped onto your body like a belt. Although the cost is lower and they’re easy to use, you’re giving up any options for variety that you’d find with more complex kits which have interchanging dildos. You want to be very sure that both the kind of dildo – in addition to the harness type – fulfills your needs.
O-ring Based Sets – The most in-demand style of strap on harness are the ones that incorporate an o-ring connected to the front section of the harness, where you can insert your preferred dildo. This style allows you many more choices in terms of dildos go, as long as the dildo can fit into your o-ring and has a flared bottom. Lower priced o-ring style harnesses have singular set rings, while others let you to pull out the “O” and exchange it with others of varied size. Try to get o-ring harnesses that are fitted with hooks, snaps or velcro around of the ring, instead of stitched in rings since they’re the easiest to change out.
Modular Strap On Harness Sets – There are actually an increasing number of adult toy companies making their very own sets that have standardized harnesses, dildos, and other toys for fucking. The most common of these is the Vac-U-Lock brand by Doc Johnson. These types of types of ‘limited packs’, you’re restricted to whatever products come in that certain set, so it’s important to make sure that they incorporate the styles and choices that you are searching for. In addition, they are typically pricier, since the brands know you will have to return to their company for all new parts. But, if you find a style that you and your lover enjoy, that’s not usually a problem.
Strapless Strap-ons – Moving away from your regular harness and dildo setup, strapless strapon are called that because rather than an exterior set, the female who is putting on the dildo basically holds it within her vagina. Strapless strap ons have a penetrative dildo at one end, and a bulb- or hook-like part on the opposite that the penetrating woman inserts into her vagina and holds into position using her PC muscles. Many women favor this kind of strap-on because it also provides pleasing feelings to them, in addition to their lover. Using them takes getting used to, and can sometimes be somewhat clumsy for women that don’t possess particularly sturdy PC muscles.
