Babeland Beginners' Strap-on Kit
How you used the toy:
The toy's claims:
A "Beginner" strap-on kit with a leather harness, a "smooth" silicone dildo, and a bullet vibrator.
What you thought:
I had experience wearing a strap-on but my partner didn't.
The harness went on easily; the straps were intuitive to adjust and had a lot of extra room--almost too much, with more than a foot of extra strap dangling off of me. The dildo was bigger than expected for the "beginner" label. I was pleased that the nylon harness straps were comfortable and didn't cut into me, but I wish they had been leather as the product suggested. The harness had a little pouch for the bullet vibrator, and though my partner appreciated feeling it vibrate the dildo inside of her, I found it pretty annoying--it sat too high on my pelvis for me to enjoy, and pressed into me a little bit in a bad way.
While partner was wearing:
I was happy the harness was comfortable enough to give her the range of motion she needed for several different positions.
What your partner thought:
Because it was her first time wearing a harness, she still really appreciated the novelty of having a penis. Her main complaint was the vibrator, which cut into her a little. Her biggest compliment was that the harness kept the dildo in place and required very little fidgeting.
While her partner was wearing:
She wished the ratio of length to width had been more even, and that the dildo had felt a little softer during use.
Would you use this again?:
Yes, with some modifications.
All told, it was a lot of fun for both of us, and a great excuse to change-up what we normally do. Beginners may want to start with a smaller dildo. — Feb. 11, 2014
