  1. How to Choose a Strap-On Harness

    Strap ons are a great sex toy for both mixed- and same-sex couples. They allow you to penetrate your partner, while keeping your hands free for other fun. Hooray!

    The majority of strap-ons come with a strap-on harness that sits around the wearer's hips to give greater control over the toy during use.

    But which harness should you choose? Our guide has all the details you need.

    What's a Strap-On Harness?

    To help you choose the best strap-on, it's important to understand how a harness is put together.

    What is a strap on?

    A strap-on harness is made up of three main parts:

    1. Harness

    The strap-on harness itself, which usually has a padded front section and a series of adjustable straps that you step into and then adjust at the waist and/or the legs.

    2. O-ring

    Either a fixed hole to put dildos through, or a flexible ring that attaches to the harness.

    3. Dildo

    A dildo that fits the hole or O-ring (a harness usually comes with at least one dildo to get you started).

    If you're new to pegging, we suggest buying a kit from our Strap-On Harnesses & Kits section that will give you a harness and a compatible dildo - everything you need to get started!


    O-Rings Explained

    O-rings dictate how girthy or slim the dildo you're using will be, as they slip over the dildo and hold it against your body.

    Lots can be switched out, allowing you to move from smaller beginner strap-ons to larger, more advanced ones as you grow more comfortable.

    They're measured in diameter, so make sure your O-ring matches the diameter measurement of the dildo you want to use.

    If you go for a harness with an interchangeable O-ring, you'll get even more versatility.

    If you've already got a harness and want to buy a compatible dildo, check out our Harness Dildos section and give our guide on How to Choose a Dildo to Fit Your Harness a quick read.


    Strapless Strap Ons?!

    Lovehoney Double Delight Vibrating Double Strap On

    If you’re more experienced, there’s also the strapless strap-on to bear in mind. With one of these, you can get a greater sense of closeness as there are no straps to get in the way.

    The larger bulbous end is worn in the vagina and the longer end is used to penetrate the other partner. A strapless strap on is great for vaginal penetration, or for those experienced in anal play, as they’re often quite large in length and circumference.

    Strapless strap-ons can be found in our Strapless Strap Ons section.
