Couple Bedroom Sex Pegging

 

Strap-on and harness-style dildos and vibrators open up a whole new world of sexy possibilities for couples, and there are so many to choose from! To help people just starting out, we thought it would be super-handy to put together a guide for beginners.

 

It’s hardly a secret that there are tons of different ways that dildos and vibrators can be used with a partner for some sexy fun. You can tease, tickle, thrust, rub, and slide them in and out and all over, but the catch is that most of the time you’ll have at least one hand occupied when you do. Isn’t there some way to have some serious dildo & vibrator action with your partner and free up both hands for squeezing, stroking, and caressing at the same time?

 

YEP! There sure is. It’s called a strap-on, and they are, without question, some of the most balls-to-the-wall awesome sex toys ever. If you’ve ever considered using a strap-on or are perhaps a bit apprehensive about how they work and what you can do with them, then this article is for you. We’ll explain everything that strap-on beginners need to know, and show you some great examples of strap-on dildos and vibrators that our customers LOVE.

 

So, if you’re ready to discover what strap-ons are all about, then it’s time to strap in!

What is a Strap-On, Exactly?

Quite simply, a strap-on is a dildo or vibrator that has been attached to a wearable harness. Sounds pretty basic, right? Well, it is, but there are so many different combinations to choose from, it can be a little overwhelming to figure out which one is the best choice for the style of sex you’re shooting for. Fortunately, strap-ons can be grouped in to a few common categories to help make it easier to sort through the delightfully massive array of wearable cocks.

What are the Different Types of Strap-Ons?

For starters, the most common and popular type of strap-on uses a harness that looks quite similar to a rock-climbing safety harness, although with slimmer straps and without all the hooks and chalk bag (thank goodness!). They have a series of adjustable straps connected to a central mounting area, which is where the dildo or vibrator is attached.

 

While some strap-ons come as a complete kit with a dildo or vibrator included, you can also purchase the harnesses separately if you want to make your own custom strap-on combination. When looking for a dildo or vibrator to go with it, you’ll need to make sure that you select one that is compatible with strap-on harnesses. These dildos usually have a wider, flatter base or extra molded pieces at the bottom to help secure them to the harness.

 

Most of the strap-ons that you’ll see are designed to be worn by women, but there are also types that are specifically designed to be worn by men. These often feature a hollow dildo that is worn over top of the cock, adding length, girth, or both. Some have textures, ribs, or nubs to add a different type of sensation.

 

There are also strap-ons with a 2-for-1 cock combination that are perfect for anyone craving some double penetration action. You can even get strap-ons that are designed to be worn on the chin. For those who want to really get up close and personal and have some face-time with their sexy strap-on activities, there’s nothing else quite a chin strap on!

 

Of course, that’s not all. You can choose from funky colours, vibrating dildos, interchangeable attachments, skinny straps, wide straps, underwear-style harnesses, and way, WAY more. Close your eyes and let your imagination run wild, and whatever you can think of is most likely already in existence and ready for you to try out.

 

Many people like to have more than one size or style of dildo to go with their strap-on harnesses, since it gives them options to suit their particular mood. Most strap-on harnesses will be compatible with several different sizes and shapes of dildos and vibrators, so you can easily have a wide variety to satisfy any urge or craving that might come your way.

How Do Most People Use Their Strap-Ons?

Now that we’ve covered the basics on what the different types of strap-ons are, you’re probably wondering about all the hot & sexy stuff you can do with them. Well, you won’t be disappointed, because there’s PLENTY of things to enjoy about using a strap-on. Whether you’re a woman with a woman, man with a man, or woman with a man, you’ll absolutely have a great time playing around with the sensations that come from using a strap-on.

 

For women having sex with women, strap-ons are a great way to free up both hands while you go at it with vaginal penetration, anal sex, or both at the same time. Just don’t forget to take turns so that you both get to experience the wicked pleasure! Lube ‘em up, and have fun!

 

For women having sex with men, you can use a strap-on to have some pegging playtime. Pegging is when the woman uses a strap on to give the man anal pleasure. For pegging, you’ll need plenty of sex lube, so be sure to have some of your favourite slippery stuff close at hand.

 

For men having sex with men, strap-ons are fantastic for taking your anal sex play to the next level. If one or both partners want bigger and/or longer cocks, simply strap one on and go to town! Like pegging, you’ll definitely want to make sure everything stays nice and slippery with your favourite lube.

 

For men having sex with women, strap-ons can be a great way to enhance what you’ve got and give your partner even more intense pleasure. Whether you’re looking for length or girth or both, there’s a strap-on that will definitely deliver the size you and your partner want. When you’re lubing up the dildo, go the extra mile for the girl and use some warming or female-enhancing lube to dial the pleasure to 11.
