Strap-On Guide - What to Know Before Pegging

By Ksenia Sobchak

It's quite possible you have been curious about strap-on dildos and wished to explore them. But, like all humans, you get embarrassed about asking questions and the idea of going into a store that sells sex products and asking a clerk for information. In fact, you almost blush thinking about it!

But there is a better way. Online retailers offer an incredible array of dildos and harnesses, and getting the information you need for the ideal purchase for your needs has never been easier. Or more discreet.

Because they are not restrained by considerations of floor space, online retailers can offer a better range of strap-ons than bricks and mortar retailers. Websites include plenty of information about the products. And because of their lower overhead, the prices are better too.

Dildos

Dildos have long been a staple of sex play. The earliest known one – a 20 cm phallus found in Germany – has been dated to 30,000 BC. Early ones were made of stone, tar and wood. Today a range of materials are used and dildos come in all sizes, shapes and colours. Just a sampling of the dildos online retailers offer include:

dildos made of glass, which are great for temperature play

steel dildos arealso suitable for temperature play, as they can be heated
silicone rubber dildos which are easily sterilized

double-ended dildos that allow two partners can share in the experience
dildos with grips

veined dildos for visual and sensory realism, or textured for more friction
shaped dildos designed to remain inserted

curved dildos for G-spot stimulation or prostate stimulation in men.

dildos with large bases, which make them suitable for harness play
Strap-ons Require Harnesses

Strap-on dildos require harnesses which also come in a wide variety of sizes, with different functions and means of attachment. Strap-ons are used for solo or mutual masturbation, as well as for penetrative oral, anal and vaginal sex.

Like dildos, harnesses come in a variety of types, ranging from 2- and 3-strap models to full corsets with built-in dildos. Most harnesses are designed to be worn around the waist, but again there are variations on this. Some can be attached to the thigh, arm or chin, to enable a greater variety of sexual positions. Others can be attached to fixed surfaces, such as floors, chairs and tables.

Harnesses are made from a number of materials. Synthetic harnesses are cheap, durable and easily cleaned. Leather has cachet and requires more maintenance, but is very popular with fetishists. Cloth corsets are comfortable and can support the dildo firmly. Plastic harnesses can be transparent or coloured, and are very easy to clean. And the ease of molding latex or rubber allows harnesses using those materials to actually incorporate the dildo right in the design, rather than strapping it on.

The options seem endless and underline the great advantage of shopping on line – you have the time and the resources to explore the myriad choices on offer. Strap-ons can enhance your sex life and online shopping makes it easier for you.
