Fashionable Sex Accessory

This is a nice and simple, adjustable leather cock strap. With its silver snaps, it can be adjusted to 4 different sizes and can be used in a wide variety of situations. There's also nothing to say that it has to stay in the bedroom either as it does make an awesome studded wrist band for those with a bit of a punk, goth or metal aesthetic.

Use

The Crave cock strap from Spartacus is a simple, yet functional, piece of kit that depending, on your fashion tastes, can double as an awesome wristband.

With a number of different metal snaps, it adjusts to fit almost any size of man and can be used simply around the shaft or to wrap his entire package in to help heighten and prolong sexual experiences. Suitable for solo or partnered play, it is suitable to be used for masturbation, penetrative sex and just about any other situation you can imagine where an erection is a part of the equation.

As it is devoid of any mechanics and consists simply of a leather strap with press studs, it is incredibly discreet, great for travel, and can be used just about anywhere.

Material / Texture

This cock strap is crafted from a strip of purple leather that is very soft and supple that has rounded ends which don't cause any irritation during use. (Other similar products are cut straight at the ends which can be annoying and a distraction during use) It features 5 silver snaps: 2 female and 3 male. Mine differs slightly from the one pictured as mine has the Spartacus logo on the outside of the female snaps.

The outside surface of the leather is smooth and somewhat silky. The inner surface is quite a bit rougher but not so much as to cause chafing. It isn't afraid of lube and whilst the outside surface becomes quite slippery the rougher inner side continues to create enough friction to keep it in place. There is a bit of give and the slightest amount of stretch. Over time, I have stretched it an extra half inch or so whilst wearing it regularly as a wristband. It's not like anyone realises what it really is.

It is unscented, and there wasn't any odor when I first opened it. Being that leather is a natural product, it can be very porous which makes cleaning a must as leather can often grow bacteria and various molds that no one wants to deal with.

Shape / Design / Size / Fit

The purple colored leather strap is around 9.5" (23.5cm)long and half an inch (1.5cm) wide with softly rounded edges. One end has two female halves of the silver snap closures each with the Sparacus logo carved into them and highlighted in black. The opposite end has 3 male halves of the snap closures which are evenly placed over a 2" area. With this combination of closures, it provides you with 4 different sizes that you can easily adjust the strap to.

It is a simple but effective design that can be used in various situations including solo masturbation, during penetrative intercourse, and virtually any play scene you can imagine. It can be worn simply around the shaft or wrapped around the testicles and shaft in one package. Those who are of smaller girths may find it too big for their shaft alone - just as those who are above average may find it cannot contain their entire package.

The circumferences of the different sizes are: 6", 7", 8" and 9" and whilst they seem large on paper, in practice, I found it would've been good to have a 5" and a 10" size option. However the partner whom I tested this with doesn't like things to be too tight around his scrotum, so others may not have that same issue.

    • Beginner
    • Can fit over both shaft and testicles

Functions / Performance / Controls

This is an incredibly easy-to-use product due to the simplicity of the design, but the fact that is a basic sex toy doesn't affect its performance.

With the simple snap close silver studs, it is incredibly easy to take on and off although tightening or loosening it during use can be a little difficult as the build up of blood does get released as you open the closures to adjust the size. If you like things to gradually become more and more restrictive, this might not be the toy for you.

We found it to be easy to use, comfortable to wear, and most important of all, we found that it performs very well. It doesn't have vibrations. However, we did manage to slip a bullet under the strap on the largest setting which helped to create clitoral stimulation during penetrative sex.

    • Easy to use

Care and Maintenance

When it comes to caring for this product, the most important thing is to ensure that it is dry before storing, and to be sure it is stored in a dry evironment as leather can grow mold on its natural surfaces if left damp or kept in a moist environment. I have lost more than just one leather product to mold.

I have found that it is easy to give it a wipe down with alchohol wipes after use to remove any lube or bodily fluids. The alcohol also helps to kill off any bacteria that might be hoping to take up residence in this natural material. You can also wipe it clean with a damp cloth as long as you make sure it is fully dry before storage.

Please note though that due to the nature of the material, you will never be able to fully sterilise this item, and if using it with a partner for penetrative sex ,you really shouldn't go sharing it in the same way with other partners as there may be a risk of transmitting bacteria or infection from one partner to another. Of cours,e I'm not a Doctor or an expert, but it is far better to be safe than sorry.

Packaging

It arrives in quite minimal packaging: a simple clear shell like container designed to hang up on a wall. It doesn't come with any instructions or extra information other than an insert with the Spartacus logo and company details.

Honestly, it really doesn't need anythhing more than that though. It isn't like it is a multi-function vibrator that requires a comprehensive set of instructions. I weould've liked it to have been recyclable as the packaging isn't useful nor is it needed for storage.

Personal comments

I must admit that I'm not involved in the scene and am pretty illiterate when it comes to BDSM, so I've used this in very vanilla ways whereas someone with more experience might be a little more inventive with it.

This strap has honestly spent much more time wrapped around my wrist than it has spent wrapped around cock and balls, but that's actually something I love about this product. If I was young enough to still go out clubbing and partying, I would wear it in the hopes of finding myself a play partner to use it with. The novelty of it being a sex toy hidden in plain sight is certainly not lost on me and simply adds to the products appeal. The Spartacus logos add to this as if someone were to notice and recognise the logo, it would be a great way to start a conversation with a similarly-minded kinkster. Almost like a fashionable yet discreet little badge!

Experience

During use, we found that it both strengthened and lengthened the intensity and longevity of his erection. The sensations created by having the blood flow restricted heightened his orgasm quite notably. It was a far better experience than the times when we have experimented with stretchy TPR and jelly rings. It is far more effective than that style of cock ring and completely blows them out of the water.

Whilst I do love to wear it around on my wrist, for sexual purposes with my own pleasure in mind, I think I would go for the very similar Spartacus cock strap that features a vibrating bullet: link.

For the price, I'm ridiculously happy with the Crave cock strap.

    Thanks for a great review! We had a similar toy, but discovered we could make a better "toy" with just some parachute cord. AFAIK, that doesn't come in purple, though.

    I noticed this and thought it might make a nice wristband/bracelet--thanks for confirming that, and for the actual measurements! So helpful!
