How to Pick a Strap-on Harness

There are three main components to most strap-on harnesses: the harness itself, the dildo attachment point, and the dildo you use it with.

Harnesses are often adjustable, but it’s always good to double-check their measurements to make sure they’ll fit just right.

Too tight and they can rub and chafe, too loose and thrusting might become difficult and unwieldly.

Style options determine how the dildo is kept in place on your body and include jockstrap, thong, and underwear.

Jockstrap-style harnesses connect with straps around the waist and legs, thong-styles go around the waist and through your cheeks, and the underwear-style harnesses fit just like regular undies do.

The dildo attachment point in most cases is an O-ring that sits around the base of the dildo and holds it in place during use.

Brief Harness

Some harnesses have the O-ring or dildo permanently attached, while others feature removable O-rings in varying diameters so you can use them with multiple dildos of different sizes.

The type of attachment point you opt for will determine what kinds of dildos you can use with your harness.

O-ring style harnesses are compatible with almost any dildo, as long as you have the right sized O-ring and the base of the dildo is flared (wider than the shaft) so that it doesn’t pop out of the harness.

The first step in deciding which strap-on harness you need is deciding how you’ll be using it.

Keeping this in mind will help you determine which options best suit your needs.
