Reaching New Dimensions of Pleasure: Reasons Couples and Singles Use Strap-On Sex Toys

One of the best ways to make sexual intercourse more pleasurable is with the help of sex toys. These goodies have been present on the market for quite a long and besides the most common toy – the dildo (designed for both men and women), these days you can enjoy the benefits of its improved version – the strapon dildo.

What Is a Strap On Dildo and Why People Use It?

As the name implies, this is a type of dildo that is attached to a harness or vaginal plug and is designed to sit where a penis would be so you can penetrate your partner without hands. Usually, the harness goes around the pelvis, however, some models also have harnesses that can go on your hand, thigh, chest, forehead, foot and so on. These strap on sex toys will improve your pleasure and sometimes lead to orgasm without using your hands. You can use strap on sex toys for masturbation, vaginal penetration, oral sex stimulation and of course anal penetration with a partner of any gender or sexual orientation.

Types of Strap On Dildos

Curved

As the name implies, these harness dildos have a curved design in order to provide direct stimulation of the G-spot in women and the P-spot in men which is also known as the male G-spot.

Briefs

The boxer brief strap-ons have a harness instead of straps and according to users, these types of dildos offer the best comfort. This type of dildo is attached to a pair of boxer-brief underwear which makes it the perfect choice for beginning peggers and penetrators. Unlike the traditional strap-ons that are designed to be attached to the thighs and waist, these ones certainly feel more secure.

Double

Also known as double dildos, the double strap-on dildos have two comparably sized dildos which are designed to stimulate penetration of both the wearer and the receiver. They can also be used for the vulva to anal penetration or vulva to vulva penetration.

Pegging

These strap-ons are designed for the penetrator to anally penetrate the receiver. These types of dildos have a slimmer harness design and are ideal for thinner and more curved dildos.

Hollow

These strap-ons are designed for men so they can insert their penis into the hollow strap-ons for more extended sex sessions. Although these types of dildos were mainly invented for men who experience erectile dysfunction, they are also popular among men who have no problems in the sack.

Strapless

As the name implies, this is a type of standalone dildo that has a vaginal plug on one end in order to provide the user with double penetration (vaginal and anal). These types of dildos are used as pegging devices or by two females for stimulating the vulva.

Removable

Some of these strap-ons come with metal or plastic O-rings that allow for changing different types of dildos according to personal preference.

Vibrating

Strap-on vibrating dildos are similar to vibrators and standalone dildos. They come with a remote that can control the small motor placed inside the dildo shaft.

Unisex

The last but not least type of strap-on dildos are the unisex models which come with adjustable straps and a crotchless design. This type of dildo is designed to fit around the legs and waist and can be used by both men and women.

Note: No matter the type of strap-on dildo you choose, using a lubricant is essential for a smoother and more comfortable experience. When in the search for the right lube, it’s recommended to choose one that will pair well with the dildo’s material.

How to Clean and Store Dildo Properly?

Regardless of the type of dildo you choose, it’s important to keep it clean. No matter whether you use it alone or with your partner, it should be washed and cleaned after each use. This will ensure you stay healthy and do not transmit any STDs and bacteria. Dildos can be made from different materials, but the easiest way to clean them is with water and soap. However, you can always buy a special sex toy cleaning product. Some harnesses are machine washable while others require handwashing and cleaning with warm water and soap. Once clean, lay it on paper towels and leave it to air-dry. If the material allows it, you can deep clean it and disinfect it by submerging it in boiling water for just a few minutes.
