As we live in more ironically tight-lipped times, you don’t need to carve your favourite sexual activities into the city’s walls or have your local sculpture create you a phallic friend to enjoy these pleasure aids pioneered by our forefathers.

Now to find your perfect Tool Belt.

The best part about strap-ons is that there is truly one for everyone, no matter your sexual orientation, gender, or erotic fantasy. Whether you’re a novice or a regular sexpert, all you have to do is choose one that works for you.

Types of strap-Ons

1.Classic Strap-Ons

Easily the most common type of strap-ons is those with a harness strap around the waist with a looping strap around each leg. This style of strap-on similar to a jockstrap provides you with the most support as their adjustable fastenings fit securely on your body to allow you to easily control the dildo during intercourse.

As the straps are adjustable on most of these types and usually secure with Velcro or clips – you can not only share the strap with your lovers but know that they are a long term investment that will always fit just right.

These harnesses usually have a backing plate that fits between your body and the toy which holds the O-rings in place. These O-rings are used to secure the toy to the harness, fitting around the base or suction cup of the dildo.

Ideally, you would need to find a strap-on harness that has multiple interchangeable O-rings to ensure it is the right size for your dildo.

Several options have small pockets on the inside of the backing plate which can hold a bullet vibrator for the wearer to get additional clitoral stimulation. The jockstrap style also means there are no straps in the way for penetration for the wearer, either from another partner or sex toy.

The straps of these types of harnesses are made from a variety of materials ranging from neoprene, leather, pleather, or even denim. It is important to choose a material that will provide the most comfort as chafing might be a major turn off while you are trying to feel “at one” with your new phallic friend.

2. Strapless Strap-Ons

This style has risen rapidly in popularity over the last couple of years. The undeniable appeal of having a dildo peeking out of the lips of a vagina with no fuss of a harness gives these toys an enhanced intimacy as the skin contact between lovers is unhindered.

The wearer uses her pelvic muscles to hold in place one end of the double or “pony” on her vagina while the protruding dildo is used to penetrate her partner either vaginally or anally.

Although this sounds fantastic, it does have a downside as toys are often heavy and can be difficult to hold into place. Therefore if you do choose this style you would need to be prepared to practice and spend some time understanding how the toy works with your body to learn which positions and angles allow you to hold it in place during your lovemaking.

When it comes to pegging, this style is definitely for the more advanced as the sphincter muscles are far tighter than those of the vagina. With a lot of Lube and practice these devices can be used for heterosexual couples to enjoy anal play but will definitely require some patience while you get into the ‘swing of things’ so to speak.

There are both vibrating and non-vibrating options in this category and are usually crafted out of silicone or rubber. It’s best to choose one with a larger bulbous end for the wearer to clench onto as it makes it a little easier to keep in place.
