the knowledgeable team at Cherry Pink have created this guide covering why both men and women love strap-on dildos.

What is a strap-on dildo?


Before we go any further, you must have a better understanding of what strap-on dildos are. As the name might give away, they are simply dildos that can be worn usually through the use of a harness so that it can resemble male genitalia. They were primarily designed for women, though they have also gained popularity for men for similar reasons, which we are going to explain next. 


For women 


  • Provides a similar stimulation to have a penis


Primarily for lesbians that are keen to engage in vagina penetration, using a strap-on dildo is the very best way that most females can come to experience vaginal penetration with another woman. Although it might not feel the exact same for either party, especially for the recipient that might have experienced real penis penetration previously, the sensation and experience of having a partner penetrate you vaginally is still the same. 


  • ‘Bend over boyfriend’


Also known as pegging, many couples and sexually active females engage in this activity, but what is it? To keep it simple, pegging is a sexual activity which involves the female wearing the strap-on performing anal penetration on a male. There are several reasons why this is a preferred action, starting with that some men like to endure anal penetration for sexual pleasure, which is primarily achieved when the dildo comes into contact with their prostate. 


On the other hand, many women love to wear strap-on dildo’s to assert dominance over their male partner. In this role, the women would likely be known as a dominatrix, as they are showing dominance over their partner by controlling them through verbal actions and sexual activities, such as pegging. 


For men


  • Can make a man feel more manly

Although many women have said different previously, size does matter. For that reason, many men look to use strap-on dildos so that they feel much bigger in comparison. With that being said, even men with average size penises even consider using a much larger strap-on to increase confidence, but also so that they can provide extra sexual pleasure to their partner. 


  • Dual stimulation


If you have ever dreamt about the idea of having two dicks, then wearing a strap-on is perfect. Many strap-on dildos are designed to fit around your waist simultaneously so that the male can have two acting dicks at the same time, enabling for the opportunity for double penetration on females, assuming she is open to that. 


Experimentation


Needless to say, experimentation is one of the biggest factors for why both men and women love to strap on a dildo. There’s always the excitement of trying something new, which is why many couples especially are keen to use a strap-on at least once so that they can see what all of the fuss is about.
