What Are Hollow Strap-Ons?

While they may not be as well known as other types of strap ons, hollow strap-ons are not a new invention. Additionally, many users are unsure about how they are used, or in fact why they are used.

Hollow strap-ons are primarily for male use as they are hollow for a reason. This is a home for a penis and is used for penetration. You may wonder why anyone would want to sacrifice the feeling of intercourse and replace it by thrusting with an appendage where they enjoy no feelings at all. There are reasons for this, and all will be explained in the following sections. Actually, one of the main features of a hollow strap-on is that it can be used while the man is in an erect state or not.

From a device that on paper seems to have no real purpose, there are several reasons why these are so popular. What they do allow for is so the man may satisfy his partner at times when he is unable to perform, or has if he’s performed and finished too early, as examples.

Different Types & Styles

It might appear to be a letdown when it comes to types of hollow strap-ons, mostly because there are only really two varieties you can choose from. With this being said, there are plenty of variations on these two types to cater for (almost) all tastes.

You can find extra large ones that deliver eye-watering stimulation to the receiver, or you can go for a few shades darker than your average white male, if that floats your boat. There are also a few thinner models that are used for specific purposes too.

With this in mind, here are a few types you will find:

Double penetration strap-ons – These have a second penis appendage which sits under the hollow part. These are used for double penetration on a female partner.

Regular strap-on dildos – These are your regular, phallic-shaped, hollow dildos. They come with bulging veins but without added testicles as they are already in place. These vary in size from small enough to fit, all the way up to 12 inches and above.

Vibrating strap-ons – These have the inclusion of bullet vibrators that deliver titillating vibrations that can please the wearer and the receiving partner, be it female or male. Some cheaper models come with wired remotes, but models from reputable suppliers come with wireless remote controlled systems.

While all of these are designed for men, there are some women who have taken to wearing them and inserting vibrators into the hollow section of the shaft. This does allow for very different sensations than just a bullet vibe sat in the end.

How to Choose a Hollow Strap-On Dildo for You

There are limited choices when it comes to styles, so when you’re buying one of these hollow strap-on dildos, there are other factors you need to think about too. First, though, there are plenty of cheap models that appear to be suitable. However, these are not likely to be made very well and will quickly deteriorate. It’s better to stay with a reputable brand name and seller.

At the same time, you will need to consider your harness. Nylon and fabric are the more common types. You can get leather, but these are hard to care for when compared to nylon that can be slung in to the washing machine.

When you are looking at size, there are two considerations you need to make. There will be the wearer and how large the internal size is to accommodate the penis, and also the receiver, and how large a penis size they can comfortably accommodate. This may also be different if the hollow strap-on is intended for vaginal use or for anal penetration.

There are a large number of men who’ll purchase a hollow strap-on to make up for the lack of size of their penis, among other things. Not all partners like a huge large sized dildos, so you will need to see what they are comfortable using.

Once you’ve found out what the right size is, you’ll need to consider material. Glass and steel are out of the window, so you have cyber skin or silicone. Cyber skin can tear if rough use is undertaken, so be aware of this when using this type.

Other things you should note are the strap and the O-ring. These vary in size and may likely be on the larger side to accommodate the thicker base. Be sure your harness allows for the O-ring to be changed to a larger size, or you could have a hollow strap-on that won’t be of any use.

What Are the Benefits

There may only be one or two types of hollow strap-ons, but there are a few areas these deliver benefits. Here are a few, below:

Anal sex and prostate massage – There are thinner models of hollow strap-ons that are made with anal sex in mind. These are ideal for prostate massage if the partner is male. Not only can men receive stimulation from all the nerve endings that are in the rectum, but they can receive the benefits which come with having their prostate massaged too.

Erectile dysfunction and impotence – There are many sufferers of impotence around the world, and this can take its toll, mentally speaking. Wearers of hollow strap-ons can now have intercourse with their partners without the worry or stress of not achieving an erection. With repeated use, they can often get over their fears and start to get an erection on their own.

Premature ejaculation – There are two ways a hollow strap-on can benefit here. Either a couple has sex to the point where the male partner ejaculates and then he wears the hollow strap-on to please his partner until they climax. Or he wears the hollow strap-on first until his partner is ready for him, and then they can both climax together.

Penis enlargement – Some men wear a hollow strap-on as a means of enlarging their penis for their partner's benefit. This can be like being with another person without the risk factors involved.

G-spot stimulation – Some of the hollow strap-ons are slightly curved and can angle up to the G-spot better than a regular penis, and are used in the hope of delivering more G-spot stimulation to their partner.

Some Safety Considerations

There are a few things couples need to be careful of when using hollow strap-ons, including a lot of the regular safety concerns about sharing sex toys between partners. All those are the same for this toy as they are for others.

The wearer needs plenty of lubrication on the inside of the hollow strap-on in case his penis begins rubbing on the inside of the tube. This can lead to friction and chafing with thrusting actions.

The wearer should also be careful of the size of the hollow strap-on, especially if his penis is a snug fit before being fully erect. Here, he might find (once he has a full erection) that his penis becomes constricted which can also lead to pain and possible circulation problems.

Some of the main areas of safety are for the receiver. The wearer of the hollow strap-on will have no sense of what they are feeling because of the inability to sense feeling. This needs communication between both partners so each can inform the other if they are in pain or discomfort, or if the wearer of the hollow strap-on needs to stop.

Lubrication of the hollow strap-on is vital, especially in the case of anal penetration, and this is because the anus doesn’t produce any natural lubrication. If the hollow strap-on becomes dry, this could lead to lots of discomfort.

Where Can You Use a Hollow Strap-On

Hollow strap-ons can be used in all of the same scenarios as regular strap-on dildos can. However, they will give a very different experience to both the wearer and the receiver.

Rather than feeling any sensations, to begin with, the wearer will actually be going through the motions. This is a great way for partners to prolong their lovemaking and is one of the reasons why they are so popular with men who suffer from premature ejaculation too.

One area that is not very often mentioned is the use of a hollow strap-on for temperature play between women. It is possible to fill a hollow strap-on with water and to freeze it before strapping the strap on into a harness. After this, performing penetration with a cold, hard, phallic object can send icy shivers up any receiver’s back, be it vaginal or anal intercourse.

Men can also heat up the hollow strap-on in warm water to introduce warmer sensations, but he does need to be careful sliding his penis into something that is hot in temperature.

These hollow strap-ons are a great help for men who suffer from impotence, and in some cases, it can help them overcome the problems which cause it. If their problem is psychological, wearing a hollow strap-on can help them to overcome any fear they have while achieving penetration with a strap on. In time, they can find they achieve a full erection too.

Cleaning & Storage Tips

Any hollow strap-on should be made from a great quality material like silicone. This is the most recommended material because of the durability, and also the lifelike feel it gives. For the harness, this should be nylon as it will be the most comfortable to wear and the easiest to clean.

After use, the strap on should be removed from the harness and checked for any lacerations around the base, before checking the rest of the surface. Although silicone is durable, it can become nicked or cut accidently. These small cuts or scratches can be the ideal places for bacteria to grow, even though silicone does do an excellent job at hindering its growth.

After checking, it can be washed under warm water using a good antibacterial soap. This can be dishwashing liquid or bar soap. The main thing is that they both contain antibacterial properties.

The hollow strap-on will need a good wash on the inside. Also, this is even more important if the man has ejaculated inside. It can mean scooping around with fingers to make sure all traces of semen are removed. Wash everything thoroughly, including your hands.

The harness (being nylon or similar) can be placed in a bra bag and tossed into the washing machine with the rest of the laundry. However, they should never be dried in a dryer because the material may melt from the heat.

The hollow strap-on can be towel dried as long as the towel is lint-free, and then it should be sprinkled in renewal powder that can be purchased. The coating of the silicone will become silky smooth with this coating and thus loses the sticky touch it can get after washing.

Once dry, you should keep the hollow strap-on in a protective bag, and make sure it’s placed in a cool, dark place.
