If you’ve not yet dipped your toes into the font of sexual pleasures that are strap-ons, you could be forgiven for thinking “What is the point of a strap-on?”

Maybe you think having a penis mitigates the need for a strap on. Here at passionbugs we want to set the record straight.

Whilst is may be tempting to associate strap-ons and harness play with certain sexualities, gender roles and identities, the truth is, strap-ons are far more versatile that they are often given credit for. Which is why their popularity continues to rise as they quickly become one of the best-selling sex toys on the market.

What Does a Strap-on Do?

Strap-ons can be worn, or received, by both people with penises or vaginas. They can be used for both vaginal sex, anal sex, blow jobs, and even masturbation.

If you’re reading this thinking strap ons aren’t for you, think again.

Let’s take a look at some of the erotic possibilities that strap-ons can provide, and answer that question “What is the point of a strap-on?”

  • Pegging
  • Experience penetrating a partner in a new way
  • An opportunity to experiment with different girths and sizes
  • Double penetration
  • The illusion of a threesome
  • Role Reversal

Using a Strap-on for Pegging

Pegging was first termed by the prominent American sex columnist, Dan Savage back in the early 2000s. Back then the term referred to the activity whereby a woman uses a strap on dildo to penetrate a man anally.
Nowadays, it is widely accepted to mean anal sex using a strap on. This can be between lovers of all genders and identity, and all sexualities. Straight couples do it, gay couples do it…possibly only asexual people don’t do it. But one thing is for sure, more and more of us are welcoming strap-ons into our sex lives.
And why wouldn’t we want to…. These marvellous sex toys reach the sweetest spots we have including our g-spots and p-spots making for stronger orgasms.


Penetrate Your Partner in a New Way

Strap On

We all know that sex can sometimes get a bit “samey”. The addition of a strap-on means you can explore new sensations and new ways of penetrating your partner.
Strap-ons come in all shapes and sizes meaning you can experience different sizes, different girths and different textures without the need to change your lover.
Those with vaginas can get turned on by role reversal and the power that can be felt by penetrating someone who has a penis. And people with penises can enjoy getting penetrated anally because this can hit the golden prostate gland.


Using a Strap-on for Double Penetration

What Is The Point Of A Strap On

Double Penetration is the act of penetrating 2 different orifices at the same time. This can be highly arousing for both the giver and the receiver but isn’t possible between 2 people without the help of a strap-on. Double penetration isn’t the exclusive property of porn movies, it is a real act that thousands and thousand of us enjoy regularly as every day, normal folk.
DP can be achieved using a double dildo strap on or by a penis with the addition of a strap on.
Double penetration is also a way of creating the illusion of a threesome without the need to bring another person into your relationship. Threesomes are common fantasy for many people. Using a strap on can help to bring those fantasies to life.

Strap-ons Don’t Conform

Still not sure what is the point of a strap-on? Let’s talk taboos….

There is a well-known saying that every girl likes a bad boy and whilst this saying is probably a little dated, the essence is still true. The thought of something naughty is a turn on. Let’s face it…Taboos are hot.

Just as anal sex was once frowned upon as being something dirty, using a strap-on is also out of the norm. Role reversal and breaking down gender stereotypes sticks a finger up a straight laced society meaning you can instantly feel a little more naughty. Strap-on sex can feel out of bounds which in turn makes it all the more tempting for those with a mischievous lust for the taboo.
