Strap In To Pleasure

What is a Strap On?

Strap on's are a sex toy ensemble that typically includes two parts; the harness which is comfortably secured around the waist or hips of one partner, and a compatible dildo. They can be used to provide fun and hands-free penetrative pleasure for all couples, allowing you to try out a variety of positions and use your hands to heighten intimacy. Other perks include shifting power dynamics, playing out your pegging fantasies, or enjoying a new sensual experience. 

What Does Strap On Sex Feel Like?

When we say ALL partners can try out strap-ons, we mean it! As the giver, they can be used as an extension or substitute for whatever is compatible with your body parts. For the receiver, pegging stimulates the anal or vaginal canal. The prostate, stimulated through back-door play, is a major erogenous zone that many are unaware of! Stimulating the prostate has been compared to stimulating the G-spot. Fun fact: it’s even been given its own name - the P-spot

3 Beginner Strap On Tips

1) Communicate what you want. If you are unsure of exactly what you want, talk about what you want to feel and experience. 
 
2) Take it SLOW. With new experiences, it’s important to not rush into anything. This will also prevent injuries.
 
3) It might be awkward...and that's ok! Whether you’re trying something new, or doing it for the hundredth time, there can be small mishaps that might ruin the mood for a second. Roll with the punches. If you are discouraged during a session, don't worry. Try it again later when you and your partner are ready!
Now remember, finding the right fit is important! When choosing a harness and dildo to use, consider the size, shape, materials, and other features that can help you feel best in your own body.
