Strap-Ons 101

Strap-Ons have gained immense popularity as both men and woman are realizing some of the advantages that they can provide. There are a number of styles and formats available and even more dildos that can be used with them. Strap ons offer the unique opportunity to add an extra, hands free toy into your sex life.

Strap on toys can be used by both men and women for both men and women. Men use the strap on usually to add length or girth to their natural size or to facilitate in double penetration. Woman use the strap on when in a two women relationship or on their male partners who would like to explore anal penetration as well. For women using a strap on there is a sense of control over the sexual act that can bring out an untapped arousal and enjoyment.

The anatomy of a strap on is pretty simple. The majority of them are made from a harness that is adjustable that secures around your pelvis with a base that has an O ring that is used to secure a dildo in place. The arrangement of straps can vary from an underwear like style to a corset style and determining the most comfortable one for you and your partner just takes a little research and possibly some trial and error.

These toys mimic the natural angles and or position of a penis so that the wearer can thrust and penetrate their partners in the most life like way possible. Many of them offer penetration or stimulation for the wearer as well with either a double sided dildo, anal stimulation or a vibrator built into the harness. The thrusting motion also often provides movement and friction in areas that enhance arousal of the partner using the strap on.

Because many of the harnesses can accommodate a variety of dildos, they can be customized for a variety of play. Hollow dildos can be used by both a male and his female partner which makes it a very versatile option. G spot dildos provide both stimulation to the g spot or can be used to hit the prostate on a man. Many of these are also offer vibrations that can help stimulate both parties.

Not all strap ons fall under the above mentioned description and I wanted to take a minute to touch on a couple other options in the world of strap ons. One is that not all of them are made to penetrate a partner. There are some strap ons designed to strap on a woman and provide hands free vibration to their clitoris. These do not provide penetration and are made to be used by a woman with little or no help from a partner.

Another category of strap ons that do not fall under the traditional format are ones that don’t strap onto the pelvis. Some strap to a thigh or even your face, providing penetration for your partner from other parts of your body. Having a strap on whose location can be adjusted has quite a few benefits including the ability for hands free stimulation your partner without needing to be in the traditional ‘hip to hip’ position required with traditional strap ons or a real penis. One other form is a new type of strap on that doesn’t strap on. These are made for a woman to wear and are held in place by her using her PC muscles on a bulb inserted into her vagina. This can offer a more ‘natural’ feel to strap on sex because there are no straps in the way and can improve control because it feels more like a part of your body.

Playing with strap ons together with your partner can be lots of fun and offers new experiences both for the wearer and the receiver. Both partners can explore and enjoy strap on play so don’t be shy!
