We admit it: when you first set eyes on a strapless strap-on it is possibly one of the most confusing looking couples sex toys out there. But if you're the sort that relishes a challenge, wants something different to play with, or you dislike the clunky feel of a strap-on harness, then read on, because you may have just discovered a new treasure and we'll show you how to get the most out of it.
What is a strapless strap-on?
First, what's it for and who can use it: a strapless strap-on is a sex toy that offers couples an alternative to using a strap-on harness and dildo during penetrative intercourse. Designed to be worn by a female and held in place with her pelvic floor muscles (sometimes called Kegel or PC muscles), strapless dildos can be used by lesbian lovers that want to enjoy simultaneous stimulation and women that enjoy pegging men.
Sorry chaps, there's no way for you to wear these gadgets, so it's very much one for the ladies unless you're on the receiving end.
As mentioned they are kind of funny looking, but once you realise what is meant to fit where, it all becomes brilliantly simple, as shown by these diagrams…
The first strapless strap-on to emerge was the patented Feeldoe and Realdoe ranges by Tantus, but since then more double dildo designs have appeared, but they essentially all work in exactly the same way. All of them require the wearer to hold the strapless dildo in place using her Kegel muscles. Some women may find this tricky on their first few experiences with a strapless strap-on and find that it slips or falls out. If this is the case, then start scheduling in some time to do simple pelvic floor routines and invest in a set of Pelvic Toners. These will help strengthen those muscles and make it easier to control, and get the most out of, your Feeldoe.
Benefits of using a strapless dildo
There are several reasons why couples may prefer to use a strapless strap-on in place of the harness, O-ring and strap-on dildo combination. Some obvious benefits of double strap-ons include…
Forget straps and buckles so you can get straight down to play. There's no slipping into a harness, adjusting the waist and leg straps. Simply apply lube, insert and play.
Get more skin-on-skin contact because there's no front harness panel in the way, so your bodies can be even closer, giving a more continuous, natural feel.
Provides simultaneous pleasure for giver and receiver so you can build to climax together. Unlike traditional strap-on play when the receiver experiences the majority of pleasure, the double dildo will ensure both partners are catered for.
Enjoy a more natural angle especially when using Feeldoe or Realdoe strapless strap-ons. Because of how the dildo is held by the wearer, it means the shaft protrudes at a more realistic angle, which leads to greater control and better penetration.
