Most strap-on harness kits have either a hole or an O-ring that you slot the dildo into, and usually come with at least one dildo to start you off. Once you discover the joys of strap-on sex though, you'll be hungry to try dildos in new shapes and sizes - or may be be ready to go bigger.
This guide will give you all the information you need to choose the right dildo to fit your strap-on. And remember, with our generous returns policy you can always check your dildo in your harness at home and if it doesn't fit, just send it back.
Strap ons are a great sex toy for couples. They allow you to penetrate your partner, while keeping your hands free for other fun… We've come a long way since dildos on a piece of elastic, so now when people speak about a strap-on, they usually mean a strap-on harness.
A strap-on harness lets the wearer have more comfort and control, ensuring they can give the most pleasure to their partner. Most of the time, you can also switch dildos in and out of a harness so you can experiment with a whole range of toys.
Whether male or female, sex dolls are designed to closely match the shape and feel of a real person, making masturbation as close to sexual intercourse as you can get. Sometimes cheap sex dolls can seemingly come up short in the realism stakes. You can lock your doll away in the cupboard and write off the experience, return your doll using our 90 returns policy and opt for a more expensive lifelike sex doll or alternatively - put in a little work of your own to make the most of your purchase. After all, if sex with your partner isn’t great, there’s always room for improvement and the same is true for you and your doll.
This guide is geared to give you some ideas on how to improve the look and feel of your sex doll. If you find your doll unattractive, then you’re less likely to enjoy them and may even face performance issues. If it feels bad to have sex with a doll, then the purpose of having bought it is entirely defeated. It is possible to upgrade your dolls using things you can pick up here at Lovehoney and this guide will show you how to transform your dud into dynamite.
Sex dolls provide sexual stimulation by allowing you to get hands-free penetration in positions virtually identical to those you would with a partner. They're closer to the physical experience of having sex than handheld masturbators and the experience of sex with dolls is something many people are keen to explore.
To the sex doll virgin, the range of dolls can be confusing and knowing exactly where to start can be frustrating. It's better to do research before buying to avoid a disappointing purchase.
We sell two distinctive types of sex dolls: inexpensive blow up sex dolls and advanced lifelike sex dolls. This guide will help you choose the right sex doll for you.
Sex toys are safe for bodily use, but they can be quite reactive when put next to alike or opposing materials. It is vital to be careful when storing your sex toys. If you mix your sex toys (particularly silicone, rubber, latex, realistic feel and jelly sex toys) you may soon discover that they start to look melted or slightly misshapen.
We can't overstate how important it is that you store your sex toys separately if you don't want a nasty surprise the next time you reach for your favourite toy.
When you want straight-forward satisfaction, you should reach for a dildo. Available in many different colours, shapes and sizes, dildos are designed to provide penetrative pleasure unlike anything else.
Although they may not rotate, vibrate or pulsate, dildos give you the kind of pleasure that you won’t get from anything electrical, so choosing the right one is key.
When you’re starting out with dildos, all you want to do is type ‘nice dildo’ into Google and be presented with a single result which is the perfect dildo for you! Sadly, the world of dildos doesn’t work quite like that, but we’ve devised a category system which should help.
Analingus or rimming is simply using your mouth, tongue, lips and sometimes teeth to stimulate your partner's anus and (in the case of a male recipient) his testicles. As the anus has so many sensitive nerve-endings, it can be incredibly pleasurable for both men and women. Lots of couples enjoy rimming during foreplay, or as a sexy accompaniment to oral sex.
Rimming is sometimes referred to as 'playing the rusty trombone', which is when the person who is giving the oral attention also reaches around to the penis and makes rapid stroking movements up and down the shaft. The mouth-to-bottom coupled with arm actions resembles someone playing a brass instrument.
