Are Strap-ons a Good Beginner Sex Toy?

Strap-on dildos can be an excellent choice for a beginner sex toy. They are versatile in many ways such as ease of use, variety of choice and size, as well as appearance.

Most strap-on dildos can be used with or without a harness system, making them adaptable for extra hand-held fun. They are great for solo or partner play, and often mimic the feeling of authentic penetration.

The only downside to a beginner’s strap-on dildo is getting comfortable with the harness system. Don’t worry though, we’ll give you our favorite tips and tricks for using harness systems in just a bit.

Considerations for First Time Strap-on Buyers

First time strap-on buyers might be a little overwhelmed with the number of choices on the market today. Here are a few tips that will help you find the right strap-on dildo for you and your partner.

Material

Material is important. Silicone-based strap-on dildos are the best option for personal hygiene. Try to avoid strap-on dildos made of jelly products because these types of strap-on dildos are porous and may contain harmful bacteria even after cleaning.

Size

Size is also an important factor to consider. Think about what length and girth you prefer. If you are pegging your partner for the first time you may want something smaller in length and width.

Remember, the average-sized penis is 6” in length and 1.5” in width or the equivalent of two fingers when inserted. Always make sure both you and your partner feel safe and comfortable.

Functionality

Also think about whether you are looking for G-spot or P-spot stimulation. Both of these sensations are better achieved with a slightly curved strap-on dildo.

How To Pick a Strap-on Harness

Picking a quality harness system is the key to having a pleasure-filled strap-on experience.

There are several strap-on harness systems that include features such as a padded front for comfort, interchangeable O-ring systems for alternating dildos with ease, and even some that are equipped with a pocket for a bullet vibrator.

Other strap-on harness systems fit like a pair of underwear, but the most popular type has leg straps and an adjustable waistband, generally large enough to fit all users up to a 60” waist.
