A harness can be the perfect addition to your late-night romantic excitement, whether you’ve experimented with sex toys before or not. There’s something for everyone when it comes to harnesses. If you’ve never tried it before, it might be because you’re not quite sure how to use these helpful tools. Don’t worry — there are hundreds of different styles that can help anyone, from beginners to experts, try out strap-ons for the first time.

Strap-On Harnesses

In general, a strap-on harness fastens using straps around the waist, thighs, and sometimes crotch. Harnesses have a section in the front where you can fit a dildo. This might be an O-ring, which fits any dildo with a flared base, or another mounting option, which will only fit dildos made by that company. You slip in the right dildo and start with your favorite positions.

Some harnesses offer extra stimulation to make sure the person wearing the harness has just as much fun as the other partner. That may include an additional dildo, a butt plug, a vibrator, or a mix of all three. It’s up to you to decide what you want to do. Even if the harnesses don’t have built-in stimulation, any harness with a crotch strap can work to hold in a dildo or anal plug that you choose on your own.

Double Penetration Harnesses

This is a specific sub-section of harnesses that can be incredibly useful if you’re interested in trying out double penetration, but you want to maintain high levels of intimacy with your partner. This style of harness has two O-rings rather than just one. Typically, it’s created for the giving partner to insert the penis into the top ring, then add a dildo in the bottom ring.

Of course, double-penetration harnesses work in a variety of settings. You can feel free to insert two dildos if that’s what works best for you. You can also play around with different dildo sizes and shapes to create the perfect double penetration experience.

Hollow Strap-Ons

A hollow strap-on gives your partner a little bit more girth and length. The hollow sheath, which is usually shaped realistically, goes over the penis, typically offering a few more inches of length and an inch or two more of girth. This is extraordinarily helpful for people who need a bit of a boost in those areas, but that’s not all you can do with it.

Many individuals with erectile dysfunction appreciate the help that it gives them, as it helps maintain an erection even without an erect penis. You can also use it to extend sex if you want to keep going through the refractory period. It’s even useful if you want to go without it at first, add it to cool down a bit, then remove it again once you’re ready to go.

Strapless Strap-Ons

These work especially well for anyone who hates the feeling of the straps around their legs, because they’re made to allow one partner to penetrate the other with no straps required. It makes for great sex without having to stop foreplay to mess with straps and buckles, and there’s no chance of snagging something on the straps.

Another great benefit of strapless strap-ons is that they allow for even more stimulation for both partners. The giving partner can benefit from vibrations and friction, both things that strapless strap-ons often have in spades, while the receiving partner can feel skin against the skin in a way that makes the whole experience even more intimate.


Experimentation is one of the best things about sex — you never have to do the same thing twice, and there are all sorts of sex toys you can use to experiment with your partner every time you want to try something new. Harnesses are the perfect way to take things to another level. Plus, they’re a pretty useful entrance into sex toys, so you can try them out before you start using other toys. With this wide array of harness options, you can choose the one that suits you best.
