Our Search for the Perfect Strap-On

Our Search for the Perfect Strap-On

By Meghan Malcolm + Alice Charles

The search for the perfect strap-on harness has been a ride. (Pun intended, duh.) My girlfriend, Alice, and I tire of harnesses that feel like they were designed without trial. The dildo pops out mid-thrust or the harness keeps loosening and shifting on your body or the scratchy straps leave marks on your skin (and not the good kind of after-sex marks). This is obviously a vibe-killer when momentum is taking you in a good direction.

So, when Shop Fleure asked the two of us if we would like to review some toys, we knew exactly what we wanted to try. We tried out the Universal Love Rider Platinum Harness paired with the Purple Haze Silicone Dildo

Here’s an overview of our experience with each:

Universal Love Rider Platinum Harness

First off, we would like to give this harness a round of applause for being 100% secure. The dildo did not pop out of the harness. Not even once. The harness didn’t slip and slide all over the place. Everything was snug and good. So, thumbs up for that.

The only downside of this harness being so super secure is that it’s a little tricky to get on/off. The straps are held together by d-rings, so it is a challenge to tighten it and to loosen it. Maybe this is just the trade for having a harness you can really get wild with. But, it would be nice to have both!

As for the look and feel of it: At first, we felt unsure of how we felt about the fuzzy interior. But, once it was on, we understood everything. So. Soft. This definitely is the most luxurious harness in terms of how it feels on your body. And, the soft leather exterior means this goes for the person who is not using it as well. There’s no uncomfortable friction for either person during use. It’s reeaal nice and looks great.

Purple Haze Silicone Dildo
It’s *so* soft. Like, so, so, so, so, so, so soft. We can’t possibly accentuate this enough. Easily the softest dildo we’ve ever felt. And, we’ve felt a lot. So, 11/10 rating for the texture of this silicone. Let’s make it a 12 for the vibrant and dreamy colour combo.

It’s a slim, light-weight dildo, so, if you’re looking for something big and girthy, this is not your guy. But, man, is it ever flexible! You can do any position comfortably. We could do whatever we wanted at any angle and it would just bend and sway with us. 

Also, the slant of it with the swollen end = G-spot stimulation. I don’t usually like dildos that are realistic in any way. So, I was a big fan of how this one incorporated balls without it having *balls*. They add that bit of touch and pressure on the perineum that is sooo nice.

P.S. The suction on the end is v strong. So, you’ve got your bases covered if you’re not using it with a partner.
