Vibrating Strap Ons

What Are Vibrating Strap-Ons?

In many cases, vibrating strap-ons are similar to regular strap-on dildos with a vibrating unit inside. However, there are a few very unique vibrating strap-ons which add a little extra and allow pleasure to both partners. The wearer and the receiver can feel the good vibrations as they are going through their sexual exploration.

A vibrating strap-on can be better than one without this feature, as they do add a little more realism to the proceedings. A regular dildo with strap-on only pleases from the thrusting action, but now, these vibrating models are able to hit the sweet spots much more naturally.

Like strap-on dildos, these vibrating strap-ons come in two parts, with the harness and the vibrating dildo. These will be worn around the wearer's hips and held in position by the tightening of strategically located strapping.

Both sexes can now be titillated hands-free, which can lead to more intense orgasms because the hands are free to entice the partner more. Vibrating strap-ons can be used by males and females, and some are designed uniquely for either gender.

Types of Vibrating Strap-Ons

When it comes to, countless varieties are made to cover all manner of tastes. They are often categorized in groups with regard to the user and the purpose. While there are regular strap-on dildos that vibrate, there are some twists on this, and these deliver a very unique experience to both partners.

Double ended strap-ons – These are either double ended vibrating dildos, or there is a separate attachment which sits inside the vagina of the wearer of the harness. These are strictly for female use.

Double penetration strap-ons – These come with the addition of two vibrating dildos and are used for performing double penetration. These can be used by a woman on a female partner, or they can be worn by a man as long as one of the vibrating dildos is a hollow one.

Hollow vibrating dildos – These can be used as above, or they can be worn solo so they can insert their penis and receive additional stimulation like a penis sleeve, all while they use the vibrating dildo to penetrate their partner.

Vibrating butterfly strap-ons – These small strap ons are for solo use and can be worn by women for extended periods.

All of the above have a vibrating unit that can be built in to the device itself, or they can come in the form of bullet vibrating units that slot into the dildo or into the harness. Most come with a remote control so they can be triggered at specific moments rather than being turned on all the way through use.

How to Choose a Best Vibrating Strap-On Dildo for You

When it comes to choosing a vibrating strap-on dildo, it’s better to stick to reputable brands because the vibrations can take a toll on a vibrating dildo with repeated use.

These vibrating strap-on dildos do take a little more investment than a regular dildo because of their additional features and durability.

Size will be the first thing you consider after your budget, and this is because it will be the factor regarding the delivery of comfort in use as well as pleasure. If you are the wearer, then it will require talking to your partner about what size they can accommodate, and likewise, if you are the receiver, you need to know the size you can comfortably accommodate.

Additionally, there is also the factor of whether the vibrating strap-on dildo will be used for anal or vaginal penetration. These will be very different and won’t really be interchangeable. And please, for safety, never cross-contaminate dildos.

For new users, there are smaller vibrating strap-on dildos, but the more common sizes will fall in the 6 to 8 inch range. If you know the real penis size you are comfortable with, then this can make a decision much more straightforward.

Materials for these vibrating strap-on dildos will be silicone or cyber skin, to deliver a realistic feel and texture. These can come with testicles and bulging veins, as well as different colors too, from flesh colored to black.

Some models forsake the realism and come with added nodules, beads, bumps, and ridges in the aim of delivering added stimulation.

What Are the Benefits

Vibrating strap-ons deliver unique benefits when compared to some other sex toys. In the case of a female wearer, she will receive a body workout compared to using a vibrating dildo by hand.

Vibrating strap-ons can also help to rejuvenate the vagina in women who are going through menopause. When this happens, there can be discomfort from vaginal tightness and dryness, and sex can become intolerable for some women. And if this occurs, some can lose their sex drive altogether. With a vibrating strap-on, these symptoms can be alleviated to an extent, as the elasticity of the vagina and the vaginal walls in particular help with sexual sensations. This, in turn, increases vaginal lubrication.

Vibrating strap-ons can be a real help to men in a couple of areas too. These can be great for men who suffer from erectile dysfunction and find it hard to get a full erection. The added vibrations in a hollow vibrating strap-on may be enough to help them reach a full erection. The other area is for prostate massage. When the right vibrating strap-on is used, the added vibrations can stimulate the prostate without actually finding it inside the rectum.

Some Safety Considerations

A vibrating strap-on dildo will have almost all the same safety considerations as regular dildos. These will include the materials used in the dildo’s construction. If phthalates are contained in the toy’s construction, these should be avoided.

Lubrication is key with a vibrating strap-on dildo because they will shake and lube might be forced off the dildo easier than when using a manual dildo. If a man is wearing a hollow vibrating strap-on, these will need lubrication on both the outside and on the inside to prevent chafing of the penis.

Depending upon the size of the vibrating strap-on, there will need to be communication between both partners, as the wearer will have no idea how the receiver is feeling. While things might sound good, there may be pain creeping in that the wearer of the strap on is unaware of. Communicate regularly during intercourse.

One of the more significant areas to be wary of can be the same for the wearer of the vibrating strap-on dildo as for the receiver. This is numbness or desensitization when the vibrating unit is on full power for too long. The genital areas are tender and are full of thousands of nerve endings, and when these are exposed to the number of vibrations that a vibrating strap-on can introduce, it doesn’t take long for these body parts to lose sensation. This can be more evident if the vibrating strap-on is used for anal penetration.

Where Can You Use a Vibrating Strap-On

Vibrating strap-ons can be used in a wide range of scenarios and situations. However, due to their nature and unless explicitly stated that they are waterproof, they shouldn’t be used in water. They can be used in a wide range of scenarios that deliver lots of sensuality between partners, and for dominant/gender role play too.

There is one scenario where a solo player can benefit from a vibrating strap-on. This may be more apt for females rather than men, but they can also take part, and this is for masturbation purposes. When using an arm or leg harness, these can be fastened to chairs or pillows, and then the individual inserts the vibrating dildo into themselves. This can be vaginal or anal. This scenario gives plenty more stimulation and masturbation opportunities too, rather than using suction dildos which only stimulates through body actions.

Pegging will also be highly stimulatory when a female wears a vibrating strap-on to penetrate her partner. With a regular strap-on dildo, the prostate will need pressure against it to perform this massage. Now a vibrating strap-on dildo will deliver sensations to the entire area, which in turn allows for more comfortable stimulation of the prostate.

Double penetration can go to the next level. This can be through a penis and a vibrating strap-on. Or in the case of a female, the intensity can be raised even higher. With a vibrating strap-on that has the added portion, the wearer can insert it into her vagina, and with the inclusion of two vibrating dildos, both partners can receive the highest levels of stimulation.

Cleaning & Storage Tips

After use, any bullet vibrator should be removed before cleaning, and also, if any vibrating strap-on is rechargeable, the cover should be fully closed before there is an introduction to water.

Washing will involve warm water and antibacterial soap, and if any anal penetration has taken place, then it may require extra cleaning along the bulging veins and under the rim of the dildo head.

While realistic silicone dildos can be sterilized in the dishwashing machine or in boiling water, this can’t be carried out if there’s any type of vibrating unit that is fixed inside the vibrating strap-on. Check the manufacturer’s instructions.

After washing, these can be dried with lint-free cloths before they need packing away. However, the skin of the dildo needs careful checking to make sure there are no lacerations on any part. These may be more evident where the vibrating strap-on sits inside the O-ring, and this is because of the extra force they will endure.

If they are all okay, you can then cover them in renewal powder to stop them feeling sticky, and then store them in their original packaging, and place them in a cool, dry place.
