How to Choose a Hollow Strap On Dildo

How to Choose a Hollow Strap On Dildo

Editorial Team |

Let us discuss the hollow dildo strap-ons – these extraordinary contraptions that primarily allow people with erectile issues to have a regular sex life. But the hollow dildo strap-ons also serve other functions and help spice up a stale bedroom.

The hollow strap ons have risen in popularity, and no matter your personal opinions, the hollow strap-on dildos can be used in various bedroom scenarios. Please read on as we discuss the essential things to note when choosing a hollow dildo strap-on.

What is a Hollow Dildo Strap On?

A hollow dildo strap-on is a firm dildo that is hollow on the inside and is attached to a harness that keeps it in place during use. It was initially designed to help men with erectile dysfunction, as the interior channel can accommodate a flaccid or semi-erect penis and allow the man to have regular sex. However, its use has evolved and now hollow strap-ons have various exciting uses.

Hollow Strap-On Varieties

Before we go into the particulars of choosing a hollow strapon dildo for you, we need to outline the basic versions this toy comes in. There are basically two general varieties, but don’t be let down, as these come in a significant number of options:

  • Realistic Hollow Dildo Strap-Ons: these feature a phallic-shaped hollow dildo attached to a strap-on harness. Depending on the type and model, these come in various shades and sizes, from small-ish to models well over 12 inches in length. Please note that there are vibrating hollow dildo strap-ons that feature the same design but usually have a small bullet vibrator included in the design.
  • Double Penetration Hollow Dildo Strap-Ons: these are very interesting, as they feature a hollow dildo on the upper section where the penis goes and a second penis appendage that sits under the hollow dildo. These are intended for double penetration.

How to Select a Hollow Dildo Strap-On

Unlike the vibrator or dildo sex toy category, the hollow dildo strap-on category is relatively limited in model options. However, that does not limit the selection, as there are hollow dildos in many colors and sizes to satisfy a broad range of users. Thus, here are the key things you must know when selecting a hollow strap-on:

  • Hollow Dildo Size: the hollow dildo has two essential measurements, the internal size that accommodates the penis and the outer size that goes into the receiving partner. Your choice will depend on the intended use, like vaginal sex or anal penetration.
  • Hollow Dildo Material: due to the nature of the hollow dildo strap-on, metal, and glass are not suitable choices. Instead, most hollow dildos today are made from silicone, and TPE/TPR blends like Cyberskin. These are compatible with water-based lubes and offer a realistic feel.
  • Harness Type: The strap-on harness is an integral part of the hollow dildo strap, and the most common choices are woven nylon, fabrics, and leather. The best harness for hollow dildos should have a wide waistband and double straps that go between the legs and outside the testicles. Please note that strap-on harnesses made from woven nylon are the easiest to clean and maintain.
  • Other Features: some hollow dildo strap-ons have extra features like vibrations. A wired or wireless remote controller usually controls the vibrating strap-on dildos and can be rechargeable via USB or have replaceable batteries. Another added feature is squirting, which is an excellent feature to capture the realistic experience.

Hollow Dildo Strap-On Benefits

All sex toys contribute to the excitement, and the hollow dildo strap-ons are no exception. Here we’ll share the top benefits you get by introducing a hollow dildo strapon in your sexy games:

  • Erectile dysfunction and impotence – There are many men with impotence problems, which can be debilitating for the male ego. However, the hollow dildo strap-ons bring the solution, and men with such problems can have regular intercourse with their partners. Sometimes, if the problem is mental, the regular use of a hollow strap-on can help bring their confidence back, and they can start getting normal erections.
  • Premature ejaculation – There are two ways a hollow strap-on can be helpful here. Either a couple has sex to the point where the male partner ejaculates, and then he wears the hollow strap-on to please his partner until they climax. Or he wears the hollow strap-on first until his partner is ready for him, and then they can both climax together.
  • Penis enlargement – Some men wear a hollow strap-on as a way to enlarge their penis for their partner’s benefit. It is a fun way to mix things up and relieve a fantasy of bringing another man into the bedroom without the consequences.
  • G-spot stimulation – There are hollow strap-ons with a slight curve that angles up for better G-spot stimulation. These can provide a deeper stimulation to the female partner.
  • Anal sex and prostate massage – Some hollow strap-ons are made with anal sex in mind, so the hollow dildo is thinner for easier penetration. These are ideal for prostate massage if the partner is male. Not only can men receive stimulation from all the nerve endings that are in the rectum, but they can also receive the benefits that come with having their prostate massaged.

Hollow Strap-On Purchase Tips

Here is a list of the top tips we must share with you that we honed to help you when you go and buy a hollow strap-on:

  • Check the product images to get an idea of the hollow dildo and harness design
  • Always check the harness size and adjustability options; we suggest you opt for harnesses with wide waist straps
  • We suggest models with double straps that cradle the testicles for more comfortable wearing for men
  • Check the inner and outer sizes of the hollow dildo that will fit you and your partner
  • Consider the extra features like vibrations and ejaculation for a more profound, more realistic experience.

Where To Use Your Hollow Strap-On

Hollow strap-ons can be used in all scenarios as regular strap-on dildos, but these provide a very different experience to both the wearer and the receiver. Rather than feeling any sensations, the wearer will actually be going through the motions. It is an excellent way for partners to prolong their lovemaking and is one of the reasons why they are so popular with men who suffer from premature ejaculation.

One area that is not very often mentioned is the use of a hollow strap-on for temperature play between women. It is possible to fill a hollow strap-on with water and freeze it before strapping the strap-on into a harness. After this, performing penetration with a cold, hard dildo can send icy shivers up any receiver’s back, be it vaginal or anal intercourse.

Men can also heat the hollow strap-on in warm water to introduce warmer sensations, but he does need to be careful sliding his penis into something too hot. There are other fun uses for a hollow dildo strap-on, but we’ll leave you and your partner to explore them all.

Cleaning & Storage Tips

We suggest you opt for hollow strap-on dildos made from body-safe materials like silicone or Cyberskin/Ultraskyn blends. These are the most recommended materials because of their durability, and also the lifelike feel they provide. For the harness, your best options should be woven nylon as it will be the most comfortable to wear and the easiest to clean.

After use, if possible, remove the strap-on from the harness and check it for any possible damage. If all is well, then you should clean the hollow dildo per the manufacturer’s recommendations. Most often, you can wash your hollow strap-on dildo with mild soap and warm water or any sex toy cleaner.

Remember to clean the hollow dildo from the outside and inside, especially if the man has ejaculated inside. Wash and rinse everything well, ensuring no residue remains. The same goes for the harness; you should clean it per the manufacturer’s instructions. Most of the quality nylon strap-on harnesses are machine-washable. However, if you have one made from leather, this may be more challenging to clean, as leather can only be spot-cleaned.

Please note that you should store your hollow strap-on dildo and harness in a separate sex toy bag that will keep it protected from the elements.
