Editorial Team |

Let us talk about strap-on kits, an exciting kit you can get and enter the fantastic world of strap-on play. You can have so much sexy entertainment with a strap-on, and you only need to know what type of toy to get. Lucky for you, here we cover all the bases on how to choose a strap-on kit that you and your partner can have hours of fun with.

What is a Strap-On Kit?

A strap-on set is a kit that contains all the parts you need for strap-on play. It includes a strap-on harness, one or more O-rings, and one or more harness-compatible dildos. You can find these in many designs that fit users with varied needs, wants, expectations, and experience levels.

So, as you can see, there are several parts of a strap-on kit; thus, you should consider several facts when selecting a strap-on kit.

Strap-On Kit Types

Because of the nature of strap-on kits, you get a broad range of various models. Each of these brings its own features, and you and your partner can really enjoy exploring different fantasies. Here are several strap-on kit models:

  • Beginner Strap-on Kits: these are designed with beginners in mind, and the strap-on harness is comfortable, and the probe is a beginner-size that you can safely use;
  • Pegging Strap-on Kits: these include a strap-on that a woman should wear and a specialized pegging dildo designed for pegging;
  • Vibrating Strap-on Kits: these contain a strap-on harness and a vibrating dildo or a separate vibrating bullet that you can place near the base of the dildo so both partners can enjoy the vibrations;
  • Vac-U-Lock Kits: these include a strap-on harness and a Vac-U-Lock attachment base that fits all Vac-U-Lock dildos and probes;
  • BDSM Sets: the BDSM sets come with more variety, as these usually include a strap-on harness with all the bells and whistles, but also have other sexy elements like handcuffs, a flogger, or something else;
  • Double-Penetration Kits: these are intended for double penetration, so you get a strap-on harness where you can either place two dildos for DP or have a dildo/probe and your partner’s penis;
  • Body-Dock Kits: The body-dock kits are fun and sexy, as these can fit all suction-cup base dildos, and the kits usually come with one or two models you can play with.

How to Select a Strap-On Kit?

When choosing a suitable strap-on set, you must focus on the type of harness you desire and the dildo it comes with. However, other aspects, like the material, waterproof properties, vibrations, etc., are vital in how your chosen strap-on kit will serve you. Here are the main things to look out for:

  • Harness Type: Finding a comfortable harness is essential, as you’ll want to use it without fear of it falling off or wiggling during use. Some people may prefer a thong-style harness, which is less comfortable but more accessible. Others may opt for extra-secure harnesses with straps around the waist, hips, legs, and even shoulders for more extensive control over the strap-on dildo. We have to mention the underwear-style harnesses that are very nice and beginner-friendly.
  • Harness Material: The harness material is essential, especially if you intend to wear the harness for a prolonged time. Leather harnesses are great for visual appeal and usually feel nice on the skin, but they may irritate you after a while. We suggest you choose woven nylon harnesses for convenience, as they’re often waterproof and easy to use. However, you need to ensure the straps are not too tight since more vigorous movement can cause unnecessary chafing and even cuts.
  • Dildo Attachment: Strap-on harnesses offer two options: a dildo that’s firmly attached to the harness and can’t be removed and a removable dildo with either an O-ring attachment or a suction cup base that allows you to use your harness with different probes. The first option is usually less expensive, but the others allow for more extensive diversity, so most sex toy users prefer a harness with a removable dildo.
  • Extra Features: Extras in a strap-on set can be everything from multiple dildos, different O-rings, vibrating probes, and bullet vibrators you can use in the internal harness pockets. The price of the strap-on set usually increases proportionally with the extra features it includes; however, you can easily find good-value products that feature the best of both worlds.

Strap-On Kit Benefits

You and your partner can experience so much excitement when you introduce a strap-on kit in your sexy games. One of the primary benefits of a strap-on kit is that you can enjoy various sexy fantasies that would otherwise be challenging to do.

You can partake in double penetration scenarios without inviting a third person in your bedroom; you can peg your man with ease and style; you can spice up a stale sex life with ease, and much more.

Strap-On Kit Purchase Tips

Here we share several essential tips that we’ve prepared for you, and we think these will help you to select a strap-on kit that you will find easy and pleasurable to use:

  • Check the size of the strap-on harness, and ensure you get a model that will fit your body. It would be best if you looked for an adjustable strap-on harness that you can adjust to a perfect fit;
  • Check the dildo/probe size and material, and only select body-safe materials like silicone or TPE. Also, ensure the probe is a size you (or your partner) can comfortably manage;
  • Check lube compatibility and get compatible lube, as this is essential for comfortable play. We recommend using a quality water-based lube to help things slide easily and work great with your chosen strap-on kit.

Strap-On Kits Cleaning & Storage Tips

Cleanliness is essential; you should be very careful when cleaning and maintaining your strap-on kit. We suggest you get a strap-on kit with a nylon strap-on harness and a dildo/probe made from body-safe materials like silicone. The woven nylon is easy to clean; you can often wash it with soap and water. Silicone is waterproof and easy to clean and maintain, allowing you to wash it with soapy water or a sex toy cleaner.

After you wash and clean every part of your strap-on kit, make sure you store it in an appropriate place. We suggest you store your strap-on harness in an underwear drawer and store the dildo/probe in a specialized sex toy storage bag that will keep it away from prying eyes and direct sunlight.
