Strap on Dildos 101 | Your Guide to Finding the Best Strap on Dildo

Strap-on sex is the ultimate way for adventurous couples to experiment with something different in the bedroom. If you're curious about the best strap on dildo sex, read on to discover tips techniques and ways to customize your harness and attachment to perfectly match your erotic desires.

Customize? Yes! The advantage of purchasing a penis toy and a strapon harness separately is that you're never restricted by pre-made kits and collections. You are free to choose from a vast list of features such as a big attachment for hardcore fetish fun or small silicone probe for backdoor pegging experimentation.

Pick from more color options not limited to only white, brown and black. Select from several interesting top rated features such as vibrating, double sided and small sizes. Choose popular materials like silicone and/or a dick that looks and feels ultra realistic. Some are hollow for men with erection issues, but also a popular choice for lesbians (“strapless” is the key term tailor made for lesbian partners).

Okay, so this can be confusing to someone who's a total newbie, but don't worry! Your Sexpert at hand, Mayla Green will guide you through the beginner essentials such as whats a strap on, how to choose the best strapon dildo along with some advice on ways to make it truly your own original creation for fantastic experimental and playful sex (the best kind of sex, in my opinion!)

Strap on Dildos Best for Beginners

First timers will always visit the top level category page of strap ons for sale first. Here lies a set of collections and kits that contain both the harness and the dildo attachment together in 1 convenient pack.

Even though this category lists over 60 strap on dildos, the selection is not as vast compared to the category that separately lists the dildo harnesses for sale, (the harness that attaches to the body without a dildo) and the separate subcategory of all dildos that fit a strap on harness.

By looking within these 2 separate subcategories, you can narrow down to the exact size and color that you and you partner want. A quick mathematical calculation will result in thousands of possible combinations instead of the 50 pre-set kits as seen in the top level category.

Now this means 1 of 2 things: Either it will make your decision easy because you can locate a combination featuring your exact specifications, OR it will make it more confusing because there are TOO many options to choose from!

Indecisive? Don't fret. I'm here to guide you through the finest strap on dildos for first timers, so let's take a look at the following products that beginners enjoy most. Keep in mind that these are suggestions both suited to heterosexual and lesbian couples, the strap-ons are unisex meaning both men and women can wear them.

SX Realistic Strap-on Penis

SX Realistic Strap on Penis has a strapon with silky straps that feel more comfortable against the skin in comparison to the typical nylon straps which can be harsher and feel “scratchy”.

I'll call these all “medium” size since this is what the majority of couples prefer. Sure some are hot sellers that are huge and thick, but considering the average reader is the average person, chances are you won't want anything overly outrageous anyway.

Cleaning & Care

As with any other adult toy that inserts into the body, it's essential to employ proper cleaning techniques to prevent a buildup of bacteria that can lead to infections and all sorts of gross stuff. It's the reality of it – sex toys need to be properly cleaned and stored to keep them not only hygienic and safe, but also to maintain their structure during long periods of storage.

Washing your strapon dildo should be done with each part separate. First of all, follow the instructions on cleaning a dildo here. Secondly, the harness itself should be hand washed only. You can use sex toy cleaner, soap or hand wash laundry detergent.

If the harness has a thong style back, be sure to pay extra attention to the strap that goes between the butt cheeks to wash away yucky butt germs. Pay close attention to the part near the vagina as lubricant and bodily fluids must be completely washed from the fabric. Make sure to rinse well with warm tap water.

Lay the harness flat to dry. If you shove it in the box right away, it could develop a permanent kink or bend in the material as it dries. Leave it out to make sure it dries completely before storing. Putting it away in the box wet can cause mold to develop, so proper air circulation is essential when preparing your strap-on dildo for storage.
