I like it doggie style strap - position accessory by Sportsheets - review by married with children

I like doggie, but this strap does not help.

This is built well, but that is about as far as the pros go with it. It is just a hassle to use and wears out my arms during use. It also ties up my hands and keeps them from exploring my wife's body during intercourse. Not recommended by either my wife or I.

Use

This is used to add to your sexual positions, IE doggie, or any positions similar to doggie. IMO this has very limited use in the bedroom, or anywhere else for that matter. This is a one use wonder, so to speak. It can only be used by couples. Not a solo type of toy. It can be used around water, but I would not recommend it. It is very easy to travel with it. As it folds up and will fit in just about any type of bag. This should work for just about any type of relationship, MM, MF, and FF.

Design / Craftsmanship / Material

This like all of sportsheets products, is made pretty well. The nylon straps are sturdy and flexible. The ABS buckles used to adjust the length of the straps are heavy duty. The cushion it soft and flexible, and causes no discomfort. I do wish that the cushion was just a tad bit thicker. It is only about 3/8 of a inch thick. So there is not much padding there. It might be bothersome for some people. The handles can also dig into your hands, depending on how hard you are pulling up on them during use and how long you are using the strap.

The pink on this is "pink". It stands out in a dark room. Just something to keep in mind. If you are at all worried about being discreet with your toys, this one will stand out where ever you hid it if even one little section of it is visible. On the plus side, you have to be pretty much blind to misplace this. So it is really a trade off kind of.

The cover on the cushion is soft and slightly fuzzy. I see this not lasting long. After a few washes, it wont look like brand new. And while this is not waterproof per say; as long as you dry it off after you are done with it, it should not cause a problem getting it wet. I would not want to use it in the hot tub or shower, but getting soaked on the bed should not cause you any problems with your doggie strap.

The straps or cover on the cushion are not removable. I wish they were, as it would help with the cleaning.

Performance

This just did not work out well. First, it takes both your hands to use it. In case you don't understand what that means; it means you don't have your hands free to explore your partners body. Major turn off for my wife and I. Second, any long term use (and I mean 5 minutes or longer) will result in your arms and hands being sore and tired. Third, this can start to cause discomfort for the one on their hands and knees with extended use or excess pressure against their stomach. Remember, you are pulling up on the strap to support your partner; so it is going to press against their stomachs. The harder you are pulling, the more pressure it will be applying to them. We also found it kind of a pain to pull out and try to get in position correctly in the dark. A strap was always twisted, or it was always wrong side up against my wife. It was always something. Plus trying to get the length of the straps just right the first time was a pain. And if this is something you are going to use with multiple people, you are going to have to readjust the straps every time.

And on top of everything else, the only position that we could even use this in with any type of comfort, was doggie style.

Packaging

This shows up in a heavy duty cardboard box. The box has pictures of a couple using the doggie strap. They are in underwear and not nude, but it is still not a box I would want sitting around my house. It is not discreet at all. Everyone who sees the box will know what type of item is inside of it. The good news is that you don't really need a box for storage of your doggie strap. It can be stored anywhere, so you can toss the box as soon as you get it.

The box has the limited warranty posted on the bottom, which makes it easier to take care of your strap should you have a warranty issue with it. It also has the contents of the box printed on the side. That is about all the info you get with this packaging. There is a short erotic story on the back side, but it is just a marketing tool for the doggie strap that you have just purchased. It might work if you where looking at the package in a sex toy shop.

Care and Maintenance

This did not come with any care instructions. Since this has ABS hardware, it could be washed in the sink or washing machine on gentle; but I have yet to try it. I would not dry it in the drier, let it hang to dry over night. Ours has not gotten dirty enough to need a cleaning. But when it does, I will give it a good wipe down at the bathroom sink, and then hang it up to dry. This method will work for us. As we do not worry about sharing bodily fluids. If you and your partner do not share bodily fluids, you might want to wash this in your washing machine on the gentle cycle.

As far as storage goes. You can toss this just about anywhere. We keep ours in the toy drawer or in the closet with the rest of the cuffs and what not.

Experience

This is a ok product if you can find it during a good sale. But for full price, it is just not worth it. We only used it a few times to get a feel for it, so that I could write a review. To tell you the truth, we would much rather pull out our liberator Jazz for some doggie style, then use this. It just did not add much to the doggie style position. I had to hold onto the handles and pull it upwards, which then kept my hands occupied and not free to play with my wife's nipples or clit. This of course is a huge disappointment for me, and for my wife. Not to mention, this would only be helpful for long time use in the doggie position, which of course will wear out your arms from pulling up on the handles for a extended amount of time. So for what it is designed and intended to be used for, it is a lot more work then not using it in the first place. And for that, this is a fail. I don't really see us using this again anytime soon. It is just not worth the hassle.

    Thanks for the review. I agree, the fact that it keeps your hands off your partner is a big con.
