  • Strap-on attachments

What is a strap-on dildo and how to do you use it?

Let's start with the basics. A strap-on dildo is basically a dildo that's designed to be worn with a harness, which is then used for sexual penetration – either vaginally, anally, or both.

What makes a strap-on unique is the different types of strap-on dildos and the different range of activities you can achieve with them.

A strap-on harness is worn around the hips and buttocks, and allows the dildo be be held in place and used by thrusting your hips, just like you would with a penis, during penetrative sex.

What is pegging?

The term Pegging, also referred as "Bend Over Boyfriend" or "BOB" when used in a sexual context, is used to describe anal sex, more specifically a vulva owner penetrating a penis owner anally using a strap-on dildo.

Like most other forms of anal penetration, pegging is completely safe and a very pleasurable sexual activity but it requires preparation and care. Learn how to prepare your body for anal play and read our comprehensive Beginners' Guide to Using and Buying Enemas and Douches.

What are the different types of strap-on dildos available?

Strapless strap on dildos

This is where things get more interesting, strapless strap-on sex toys are curved to provide stimulation to the wearer as it's inserted into the vagina and used to penetrate a partner while providing stimulation for both parties.

Although these strap-on dildos are mainly for vulva-on-vulva sex, they can be used for a vulva owner to penetrate a penis owner anally, but that's for more advanced users as it's difficult to hold them is, so harness strap-on dildos are easier to use for pegging.
