strapless dildo

Many women, men and couples are interested in exploring strap-on play together as a way to open up erotic possibilities in their love life.

Strap-on play is an erotic activity that couples can do together that builds trust, opens communication, fulfills fantasies and creates new ways to explore their orgasmic experience.

This guide was designed to help you get  educated about strap-on play, so you can try out new ways to explore sexual empowerment and pleasure together.

While strap-on play is not for everyone, it is becoming increasingly popular among heterosexual  couples who want to try out role reversal and male prostate pleasure.

 

What is Strap-on Play?

strap on play

Strap-on play is the use of a strap-on dildo (or faux penis) worn by one partner to sexually penetrate the other partner.  Strap-ons can be worn by anyone regardless of gender or sexual orientation but are usually worn by women to penetrate their partner either vaginally or anally.  Female to male strap-on sex has a specific name called pegging.

Why Use a Strap-on?

There are many reasons why a couple may want to use a strap-on for sexual play. These include:

Female to Female Sex:  Strap-on play is a popular way for same sex women to achieve intercourse together with over 50% of queer-identified women taking part in it as a regular sexual activity.

Pegging: Strap-on play between heterosexual couples is also on the rise as well, with more than 50% of straight men admitting they enjoy anal sex with their female partners.

Erectile Dysfunction: Hollow strap-ons can be worn by men who have difficulty getting and/or maintaining an erection in order to facilitate penetrative sex.

Longer Lasting:  Strap-ons can also be used by men to last longer in the bedroom and give him more stamina, thus prolonging intercourse and giving their partner more stimulation.

Oral Pleasure: Some couples enjoy simulating oral sex on a strap-on dildo, which can be visually stimulating.

Role Reversal: Some couples like role-playing with power exchange and/or role reversal (gender bending) in which the female takes on the active role of a “top” and the male takes on the receptive role as a “bottom”.  For men this allows them to be more receptive, vulnerable and to give up control in the bedroom. For women they can enjoy being in the seat of power and giving pleasure to their partner.

What is Pegging?

Pegging is a sexual activity where a woman penetrates a man anally using a strap-on dildo.  Pegging allows couples to explore their sexual boundaries and fulfill their fantasies for deeper intimacy. 

women sex toys

For men, pegging can be a highly erotic and orgasmic experience because it involves stimulating the prostate gland or male g-spot, which can lead to more powerful, as well as multiple orgasms.  According to Rubie Ryder from Pegging Paradise, “Pegging can provide him with orgasms 10 times more powerful that he has ever experienced with a lot more ejaculate.”

While pegging may seem like a new thing, it has actually been fairly popular for quite some time.  In fact, in 1998, the first “Bend Over Boyfriend” instructional video on “pegging” was released and since then interest in pegging has grown.

The term was popularized in 2001 when Dan Savage and his readers of "Savage Love" recognized that there was no name for the act of female on male strap on sex.  Thus, “pegging” was born.

These days pegging has become even more popular due to greater awareness of the male prostate, more open views about sexuality, and couple’s willingness to explore a variety of sexual practices and power exchange scenarios together.  The act of pegging has become a “thing” now, and has been featured in pop culture TV shows and films.

 

What and Where is the Prostate Gland?

The prostate gland (or p-spot) is a sexual gland, about the size of a walnut, located just inside the anus 2-3 inches.  It is positioned beneath the bladder at the base of a man’s penis, just in front of his rectum, above the perineum.

It is responsible for “secret[ing] a slightly alkaline fluid” and “contains some smooth muscles that help expel semen during ejaculation.”  The prostate is highly sensitive and can be stimulated by pressing up into the perineum (externally), or by penetrating the anus (internally) with a finger, anal toy, or dildo.

Why Would a Couple Want to Engage in Pegging?

couple communcation

There are plenty of reasons why a couple may want to try female to male strap on sex.  The foremost reason would be that it is pleasurable. For the man it provides a way to stimulate his prostate which can lead to very intense as well as multiple orgasms.  Women can also get pleasure from pegging as well, by using a strapless strap-on like Cloud 9s new Strapless Dildo, in which she inserts part of the dildo in her vagina to pleasure her G-spot.

Strap-on Sex for Stimulating the G-spot

Women can enjoy g-spot stimulation and cervical stimulation with strap-on play as well.  Interestingly enough, the g-spot which is also called the female prostate is located in the same area on a woman as the prostate gland is in a man, just beneath the urethral sponge.  It is an erogenous zone located 1-3 inches inside the vagina on the front (anterior) wall.  Stimulation of this area can lead to powerful orgasms and sometimes female ejaculation, in some women.

How to Talk to Your Partner About Strap-on Play

With the increase in popularity of strap-on play becoming more mainstream, men, women and couples are becoming more curious about this new erotic adventure they can explore with their partner. 

couple talking about sex

Talking to your partner about strap-on play, or pegging for the first time can be intimidating and rather uncomfortable.  This guide provides tips for broaching the subject.

Long before couple’s first engage in pegging they should talk about it first.  Pegging is not something you want to surprise your partner with in the middle of a heated encounter.  Rather, it should be discussed out of the bedroom first to avoid placing pressure on either partner. Your partner should never be pressured into trying something so intimate, and it may take them time to warm up to the idea, if they ever do.

Good communication about your sexual preferences results in higher relationship satisfaction and better sex.  Discussing new ways to keep things spicy also prevents bedroom boredom or a lack of desire and low libido. For those reasons, healthy communication about sex between partners is important and it is also beneficial to talk about new activities before diving right in.

Tips for Talking About Sexual Intimacy with Your Partner

  • Make Time for Meaningful Conversationpegging
  • Don’t Assume You Know What They are Thinking
  • Ask Questions
  • Be Honest About Your Boundaries
  • Practice Active Listening
  • Take Turns Expressing Your Desires
  • Compliment Each Other on What Your Like
  • Don’t Judge Your Partner
  • Don’t Pressure Your Partner into Something They Don’t Want to Try
  • Give Your Partner Time to Think About a New Activity Before They Answer
  • Use “I” Statements and Take Responsibilities for Your Own Emotions
  • Keep the Conversation Light and Playful
  • Remember That Open Communication Leads to Greater Intimacy

Some Obstacles to Your Pegging Fantasy

While pegging is becoming more mainstream, there are still lots of people who are just not into it.  For a man, having anal sex, even with their female partner penetrating them, still carries a lot of social stigma.  He may worry that the act itself is “gay” or that he could be “gay” for wanting to try it. This is simply untrue. Being gay is a sexual orientation and has nothing to so with what sexual acts you may want to engage in.

Your partner also may be worried that it is going to hurt.  As long as you are empathetic towards your partner and follow the rules for anal pleasure: go slow, use lots of lubricant, keep in constant contact, and use proper hygiene; anal play via a strap-on should be very pleasurable and ultimately orgasmic for the guy.

Remember it is important to communicate open and honestly, and if he is not into it, then “no pressure”.  There are lots of other passionate sexual activities you can explore together.


How to Use a Strap-on

Communication: We already talked about communication, but it is so important, it really is the first step in getting started.  And, don’t forget that communication should be taking place before, during (especially during) and after the experience as well.

Anatomy:

For women, it may be difficult wielding a strap-on for the first time, because it is not a part of their physical anatomy, so they have no reference on how to use it.  Also, a strap-on has no nerve endings, so the wearer can’t feel the layout of the anatomy of who they are penetrating. For this reason, it is important to get the lay of the land, so-to-speak, by using your fingers first to penetrate your partner’s vagina or anus and feel around for their g-spot or p-spot first.  The anal canal is curved so doing this will give you an idea of the angle you will need to use for penetration. Once it is located, you will then have a mental image of where it is so you can find it with your strap-on dildo.

Practice Solo First:

Another way to get use to sporting a strap-on is to wear it for a while before you intend to have sex with your partner, to get use to the feeling of it attached to your body.  Trying walking around with it on, or practice thrusting and moving your hips. For strapless strap-ons this is especially true because part of the dildo is inserted in the wearer’s vagina, which needs to be held in place by squeezing the vaginal muscles.  Wearing a strapless dildo beforehand will help increase stamina and build expertise. Plus, it will make you much more comfortable and less self-conscious when you do go to use it for real.

Warm Up:

Whether you are engaging in vaginal or anal strap-on play, engage in lots of foreplay and warm your partner up first.  For anal play, it is a good idea to begin with an external massage of the buttocks and anal opening first, to prepare your partner for penetration.

Lubricant:

Use lots of lube when engaging in strap-on play.  The anus doesn’t self-lubricate like the vagina, and sex toys can be can be dry and cause friction without lube.  Cloud 9 Novelties Paraben Free Water Based Personal Lubricant is safe to use on any sex toy material.

Relax: 

For anal sex it is important for the partner who is being penetrated to be very relaxed.

couple bath

The more relaxed they are the easier it will be to open up.  Many couples enjoy taking a bath beforehand to relax and clean themselves thoroughly before anal sex.

Positions: 

Try various sex positions.  This is rather obvious, but some sex positions will be easier than others when using a strap-on.  For pegging, doggie style is the most popular, but you could also try missionary with his hips propped on a pillow and legs raised, and spooning may be a comfortable position to try as well.

Go Slow: 

The anus is not like the vagina. It doesn’t stretch as much and isn’t as resilient.  So, begin slowly. Start with simply rubbing the tip of your dildo over the opening of the anus until your partner gets used to that and begins to open for you. When they are ready, you can slowly insert just the head of the dildo.  If this feels good, continue, slowly inserting the dildo one inch at a time, until your partner becomes accustomed to it.

Feedback: 

Get feedback.  This is very important when you are having any type of sex, but in particular for strap on sex and anal sex.  You can’t feel with your dildo, so it is hard to know how deep you are thrusting, or at what angle or how that feels to your partner.  In addition, with anal sex the one being penetrated should be in control over the depth, force and speed of the penetration, so their feedback is important.  Watch for body language and ask for feedback on whether what you are doing feels good or not. Stop if your partner experiences any discomfort or pain. This means stop moving right away and wait to get instructions from your partner on whether you should continue or withdraw completely. 

Control: 

Use your hand to hold your strap-on and to position it better as well as for more control during thrusting.

Hygiene: 

Cleanliness is very important when engaging in anal play because the anus harbors bacteria.  You may want to consider using an anal douche to clean the rectum before engaging in anal play.  Never insert a toy into her vagina if it has been in the anus without thoroughly sterilizing it first.  Anyways clean and sterilize anal toys before and after use. Only use nonporous anal toys for anal play.  Porous toys can harbor bacteria and STIs even after cleaning and can not be sterilized 100%. The Cloud 9 Strapless Dildo is made out of high quality silicone and can be sterilized for safe use and hygienic anal play.

Use Protection: 

You can use a condom over a strap-on during strap-on play if you plan to engage in both anal and vaginal sex, or if sharing the strap-on with multiple partners, to avoid cross-contamination of bacteria. For oral sex dental dams work for both cunnilingus and rimming (oral to anal sex).  Gloves are also a good idea for fingering as well.

Types of Strap-ons

There are several different types of strap-ons available on the market today.

Harnesses

Harnesses feature straps that straddle the waist and thighs and usually have removable dildos held in by an O-ring.  Harnesses are usually sold separately, unless they come in a kit. Unfortunately, harness strap-ons do not offer internal stimulation for the wearer.

Strapless Dildos

A strapless dildo, is a strap on designed for women to wear without the aid of straps or a harness.  Ideal for lesbians or heterosexual couples, the strapless dildo is made similar to a double dildo in which the woman holds the smaller bulb part of the dildo inside her vagina by squeezing her PC muscle and uses the longer end of the dildo to penetrate her partner. 

strapless dildo

The benefits of using a strapless dildo is skin-to-skin contact and the wearer is able to feel the thrusting movements better which eliminates the disconnection that some women experience with a standard strap-on.  Also, the bulb massages the wearer’s G-spot as she holds it inside, giving her pleasure during the experience as well. If vibration is included, this offers the wearer additional stimulation. The Cloud 9 Strapless Dildo features a large vibrating bullet (above) that fits inside the bulb of the dildo to ensure maximum pleasure.

Clenching the PC muscle is good for the vagina and libido as it is akin to doing kegel exercises that strengthen the PC muscle.  Clenching the PC muscle aids in sexual arousal and, over time, kegel exercises lead to better, stronger and more intense orgasms.  

Finally, if you need some additional support a strapless dildo can also be used with a harness to aid in keeping the bulb inside the vagina  and for greater control. However, most people find they enjoy the freedom of wielding their strapless dildo without a harness. That way they don’t have struggle with straps in the heat of the moment.

How to Choose a Strap-on

When choosing a strap-on, there are certain considerations you should think about before deciding which one is right for you and your partner.  The following shows you the unique features of the Cloud 9 Strapless Dildo, as well as what to look for when buying a strap-on.

how to choose a strap on

Shape

The shape of a strap-on dildo one of the most important considerations when choosing a strap-on dildo.  A strap-on dildo should have a slight curve in order to facilitate strap-on play for both anal and vaginal penetration.  This allows the user to get the right angle when penetrating their partner, so they can hit the prostate gland or g-spot for more pleasurable stimulation.

Design

Design and quality of a strap-on is also important.  The best designs are those with fewer moving parts or pieces, as there is less to break down over time.  A solid, strapless design is ideal for this reason.

Material

Silicone is the best type of softer, flesh-like material for many reasons.  It is completely body safe, hypoallergenic, phthalate free, and can be disinfected.  Silicone is also firm, yet supple and flexible, so is perfect for strap-on play and penetration.  Silicone also has a long shelf-life and will not break down like other soft materials over time, so will last a long while.

Size

For beginners, size is an important consideration.  It is usually wise to start small and build your way up in size.  However, not all of the strap-on dildo needs to be inserted, so if you take care and use control a larger strap-on is also suitable.  A larger dildo also gives you room to hold it at the base, so you can wield more control as well.

Vibration

While many strap-on toys don’t have vibration, it is definitely an added bonus, especially for the wearer who will benefit from the additional pleasure.  The Cloud 9 Strapless Dildo comes with a larger bullet vibrator for increased stimulation. Most strap-ons don’t include a vibrator, and if they do, it is a much smaller bullet.  Our bullet is longer so offers more stimulation into the dildo for enhanced pleasure.

Pleasure

Yes, we don’t want to forget about pleasure!  After all, that is the reason for getting a sex toy in the first place.  While a strap-on should be pleasurable for the person who is getting penetrated, it is also important that the wearer enjoy pleasure as well, so the experience is more reciprocal. That way, strap-on sex more closely resembles real penis to vagina or anal sex, so both partners enjoy the experience. 

The Cloud 9 Strapless Dildo was built for pleasure.  For the partner being penetrated, it features an upward curved shaft for easy penetration, so it hits those spots just right, and has a realistic veined shaft for additional stimulation.  The wearer can enjoy the specially designed pleasure bulb with added vibration, and four ribbed pleasure points that stimulate the clitoris and vulva during use.

The Cloud 9 Strapless Dildo combines vaginal pleasure, clitoral pleasure and anal pleasure all in one, including vibration!

Shopping for a Strap-on

When shopping for a strap-on it is a good idea to get your partner on board.  After all, you are going to be using it together, so you should also both get to take part in choosing the ideal toy for both of you.

You can make shopping for a sex toy a great “date night” idea, even if you are just shopping online.  Just the idea of purchasing a sex toy together can be enough to get the libido aroused and the anticipation of getting the toy can be pretty stimulating.

When shopping online for a sex toy make sure to watch videos of how the toy works and read reviews to help you in your purchasing decision.  If shopping in person, ask lots of questions and be sure to check out the full range of options.

The popularity has grown steadily ever since.”For his part, Nelson asks all of his new patients to complete an intake form about their experience with various sexual activities, including “anal play.” It turns out that more than half of his straight male clients answer that they love having something in their ass. https://melmagazine.com/weve-reached-peak-pegging-culture-c6c7a2649c09
