All About Strap-On Harnesses

A strap-on is any combination of a harness and dildo. People of all genders and orientations can - and do! - enjoy strap-on play.

While harnesses and dildos are most commonly used for penetration play - for g-spot or prostate stimulation - they can often used as part of power play, gender play, and roleplay.

Picking out the right strap-on harness is all about finding a combination of fit, comfort, material and style that works for you. If possible, try on a harness you’re considering purchasing to ensure a good fit.

Harness Considerations

Most strap-on harnesses will accommodate any flared base dildo up to 2” in diameter but some harnesses may fit a smaller range of toys. The material you choose for your harness matters! While some strap-ons are waterproof, leather harnesses are not. Try to select a harness that feels both comfortable and secure on your body. Just like any sex toy, what works for someone else may not be what suits you.

Harness Styles

Harnesses traditionally come in either g-string (one strap, thong style) or jock style (two straps, sometimes called a ‘texas-style’ harness). There are also harnesses that can secure a dildo to a hand or thigh!

  • G-string harnesses can provide a snug-fit and provide a handy way to hold a dildo or plug in-place for the pleasure of the wearer.
  • Jock style harnesses have two usually adjustable straps that fit around the buttocks.
  • Underwear harnesses typically come in brief-style and are made of some combination of cotton and spandex.
  • Body harnesses can be attached to a hand or a thigh and can be made of a number of materials.

Harness Materials

Harnesses are made of a wide variety of materials - just like any kind of clothing - but the most common materials for harnesses are leather, rubber, nylon webbing, and neoprene. Some materials like nylon and neoprene are waterproof and exceptionally easy to clean, while harnesses made of leather require more delicate handling but are often more durable and come with lifetime warranties.
