As college students, Simon and I don’t exactly have a whole lot of money to spend on our sexual pursuits (If the school can spend our tuition on university logo-emblazoned m&ms, we should at least be getting more free condoms). Our low budget is what drew us to the Sportsheets New Comers Harness and Dildo Strap-On Kit when we decided to try pegging, and we can report we are mostly pleased, with a few reservations.

 

 

 

 

The Dildo

This was not the first thing to ever venture into Simon’s butthole, but it has become one of his favorites. At 5 inches long with an .875 inch diameter, the size is great for beginners like us, or as a warm up to be preceded by something larger. It is a textureless, inoffensive looking guy that is just a little something more than a finger. It is made out of body-safe silicone, and the surface has a glossy finish, which unfortunately is quite the lint magnet. You’ll need to clean this thing before you put it in any hole, as well as lube it up with some water-based lubricant.

Using the dildo in the harness definitely has a learning curve for someone new to thrusting motions. We began with Simon on his back and me on top in a sort of missionary position, but with his legs raised. This position was great to allow back and forth communication and reassurance to a nervous but excited Simon, and also left his hand free to provide manual stimulation to his penis. Plus, he claims looking at me while I’m pegging him is quite the turn-on. What I didn’t expect was how difficult thrusting would be at first. There is definitely some skill and precision to the motion and my clumsy glutes and thighs were not ready for the strain that left my poor legs running out of steam all too soon. In addition to the purposeful breaks I had to take, the size of the dildo provided us with a few more breaks than we’d have liked, especially at first. It’s petite five inches is just a bit too short to maneuver in between Simon’s pillowy buttcheeks with ease. The dildo in fact flat out doesn’t work when he is on top in a sort of cowgirl (cowboy? cowperson? We need a gender neutral term for this position.) because it just won’t stay in. Although we’ve mostly got the hang of it now in our original position, it continues to fall out with an occasional overenthusiastic thrust, which can be quite a bother if he’s anywhere close to orgasm.

The Harness

The strap-on harness is made out of nylon and plastic hardware and fits waists up to 60” (Sportsheets also offers a plus size set similar to this for more voluptuous humans, although despite my research I can find any that come with dildos. Hm.) With some initial finagling it is easy to put on, and uses the “jock” style harness, with a belt around the hips, and a little leg belt for each thigh. This leaves my vulva and butthole exposed for other types of play, and I’ve found my favorite pairing is wearing an anal plug during pegging and experiencing the lovely clenching from it moving around ever-so-slightly while I thrust away.

Sportsheets harness close-upMy complaints about the harness lie in the ring that holds the dildo in place. First of all it isn’t silicone, but nitrile, which is porous and not body-safe. If you’ve ever looked down at the end of a pegging session you’ll know that it isn’t exactly a tidy sight. The porous material of the ring makes me worry that it won’t be safe for long term use, and although it doesn’t go inside the body, it touches up against something that does, and bacteria in and around sensitive areas is something that we all should avoid. In our case, I don’t think we will be using this harness much longer regardless of it’s body-safety. In just the small amount of time that we’ve had it, we’ve already pretty much outgrown it. That ring is not only potentially unsanitary, it’s too small to accommodate anything larger than one inch in diameter. The set claims to fit dildos up to 1.25” in diameter, but really I think it would be quite the struggle to get something that large into that little ring. In addition to this, unlike many harnesses that feature interchangeable rings, this one is sewn into the straps of the harness, so the whole harness can only be used with very small dildos.

 

The Nitty-Gritty

If you’re dipping your toes into the waters of strap-on land but not totally sold, at around $30 this harness is probably the lowest-cost way to test those waters out. However, I would recommend spending just a bit more and purchasing a harness with an interchangeable and more sanitary ring so that you can upgrade to different dildos if it does turn out strap-ons are your thing. At Shevibe you can find the Sportsheets Latigo Leather Strap-On Harness, which is similar to the New Comers set, but features an interchangeable ring (although no dildo is included). Another option is the RodeoH harness briefs, which offer an underwear-style fit that can be used with many different sizes of dildos, no rings required. Harnesses from Tantus include the Bend Over Beginner Kit and the Sport Kit, both of which come with pockets in the harness for vibrators.

Thus far into our anal adventures, Simon likes the feeling of motion in his butt and hasn’t been too big of a fan of the immobility of anal plugs, so kudos to this little set for helping us discover that! We hope to find some slightly larger and more curved dildos (hello Tantus Sport and Slow Drive!), and definitely see a new harness in the near future.
We purchased our Sportsheets New Comers Harness and Dildo Strap-On Kit from a local sex shop, but you can buy your own here, or purchase just the dildo here.
