Strapless
     Strap On

A fairly recent introduction to the sex toy market, strapless strap on dildos have become very popular with both lesbian and hetro couples who enjoy the thrill of penetration but don't want the fuss of attaching dildos with straps. Apart from being much more elegant and aesthetically pleasing, this type of toy offers both stimulation and direct feedback to the wearer and results in a much more pleasurable and natural penetration for their partner. As an added bonus, they're also a great (but gentle) workout for your PC muscles!

There's a limited range of models on offer in the UK and many of them are extremely expensive so we've scoured the top sex shops to give you an instant overview of who sells what and for how much.

Vibrating Strapless Strap On

Also known (quite amusingly) as the Bend Over Boyfriend, this excellent value vibrating dildo from Toy Joy is by far the most popular strapless strap on in the UK. Made from flexible and comfortable jelly rubber, this little wonder is about as much fun as you can have with a strap on and boasts a powerful four speed bullet in the tip and a wonderfully textured bulb that ensures a good (and stimulating) fit in the vagina. As a little added bonus there are also three nubs on the top of the shaft to stimulate the clitoris whilst in use.

The shaft is a most respectable 7 inches insertable and is nicely textured but the key to this toy's enduring appeal lies in the size and shape of the other end. The real make or break factor for all strapless strap ons is how well they stay in the vagina, if they fall out or slip around the whole effect of the toy is lost and this is where the Bend Over Boyfriend really stands out. The head is large enough to fit very securely in the vagina but small enough not to be uncomfortable and its textured for both pleasure and practicality. Crucially, the neck below the bulb is very narrow, so the natural tendency is for the toy to be squeezed into the wearer rather than pushed out and makes for one of the firmest and most comfortable fitting models available.

We really love this toy and think it performs much better than many others costing more than twice as much but don't just take or word for it, have a look at the many positive reviews at Lovehoney.

Non vibrating model also available
If you're not looking for vibrations with your penetration then the non vibrating version of the Bend Over Boyfriend features the same great design and materials but without the bullets and control box. Personally for a few pounds more we'd go for the vibrating model as you can always turn it off if you aren't feeling in a vibes mood but this version does remove the trailing wires and control/battery box which could be a benefit for some users.
Avaliable from Bondara for £18.99 and Passion8 for £24.99



Infinity Waterproof Strapless

The silicone Infinity is a good alternative if you want some vibrations but don't want any external leads or control boxes. Like many of the models on offer, the vibrations are provided by a bullet that inserts into the base of the toy which is easy to use and offers three speed settings. Whilst the vibrations in the shaft are not quite as strong as in toys with the bullet in the tip, this position creates more sensation for the wearer and is totally self contained and in this case waterproof, by virtue of the rubber seals in the bullet.

The toy generally has a nice feel and the silicone is firm but forgiving and the female bulb is well shaped to stay put whilst the bumps on the top of the shaft stimulate the clitoris very nicely when in use. We also found this to be quite a good beginners toy as the shaft is fairly slim, tapered for ease of entry and not too long at 6 inches (insertable). Its smooth finish also offers less intense anal stimulation than the heavily texturing shafts found on some models and makes it perfect for curious but nervous hubbies and boyfriends!

Strapless Strap On with Anal Stimulator

Now this one is a little different! If you feel that anal pleasure is better when shared by both partners - this could be the toy for you. Those naughty folk at Fetish Fantasy have pushed the strapless strap on concept a bit further by adding an anal stimulator to their already pretty sexy standard model (see below). With comfort in mind, the vaginal insert has a smooth, non contoured finish as you'll be feeling quite stimulated with the anal beads and at the business end of the toy we have a very heavily textured corkscrew effect shaft designed to thrill at every thrust.

The toy is made of firm jelly rubber and looks fantastic with its smoky dark grey finish giving it a classy feel. Vibrations are delivered by virtue of a bullet at the tip of the shaft and is controlled by a button in the base which avoids trailing wires.

There are a couple of negative points to this toy however. First is the length; at only 5.5 inches insertable this is pretty modest but could be totally ok for beginners but at 5 inches circumference the girth of the shaft is not so beginner focused, basically it's short and fat which leads to a lot less flexibility than long and thin. Secondly it is rather heavy; Fantasy Fetish make very good quality toys and you can feel this in the weight of them - this is normally great but in this case it makes it more difficult to keep the toy in place. Surprisingly this isn't helped by having it inserted anally too because the bead style anal probe is narrower towards the tip so the natural tendency is to push it out, rather than with a bulbous headed butt plug shape that naturally is pulled in.

We think this is a good toy, it has a powerful bullet and looks great but to be honest for around £45 we think you can do better.

Standard non anal model also available
For those not interested in extending the anal fun to the "wearer" of the toy, there's also a standard model available without the anal probe. Also gone is the heavily contoured shaft, which is replaced by a nicely shaped but smooth finish whilst the vaginal bulb goes exactly the other way with the addition of a pleasant and stimulating spiral contour to keep you happy.
Available from several retailers, the cheapest being Bondara at £39.99 and Sex Shop 365 at £45.60
