Strap, thank you, but you are no match for my man's hands

I like his hands on me better than I like using this strap, which requires his hands to be touching nylon, not me. We don't feel like the strap had anything more to offer our sexual experiences, so this is best for couples who can't already go rough and deep using their hands and bodies. I guess it'd be useful for someone. I can't say it's not fun sometimes to use it with my rear in air though.

Use

The 'I like It Doggie Style' strap is overly obvious as to what it's designed to do -- aid in your doggie style sex. This sturdy strap is gender friendly since it's not specifically a female or male product. In our situation, since my male partner is the only one doing any penetrating, we use the strap under my waist. However, it can be used the other way around. In other words, no matter what you're carrying downstairs, you can use the doggie style strap as the holder or the wearer.

This is a simple padded "belt" that's placed under the receiver of penetration's waist and the nylon straps are held by the penetrater.

What it's supposed to do, besides give the penetrater something to hold onto besides your body, is allow for deeper penetration. For the wearer of course. The doggie style strap can be used to sort of lift your partner while penetrating as well as for deeper, rougher thrusting. While its main purpose is for doggie style intercourse, it can be used in missionary position, provided you put the strap under the receiver's lower back. This actually does work for deeper penetration in missionary style as well. I will talk more about these things momentarily.

With this belt wrapped under your waist, you on all fours, the description on the box basically says that it will give the receiver more comfort since their partner's hands won't be digging into their love handles. Of course Sportsheet's words it differently, but that's the other purpose of this strap, which for us, isn't anything we worry about. I personally wouldn't recommend someone to buy this just for that purpose because well, if someone's hands aren't grasping your lovely flesh, the strap certainly mashes your flesh up, so it's not going to add any comfort in that department.

It's also said to "compress the vaginal canal". In other words, ladies, having the strap around your waist and your partner slightly holding you up, it'll make your vagina feel "tighter" to him. If you truly think your vagina needs work, do kegels. They work for tightening your vaginal muscles and your health, so don't expect this to truly make your vagina feel tighter. We notice no difference anyways.

Of course this is made for a couple. I don't think you'd have much luck using this strap alone. It'd make a mighty funny thing to watch I'm sure, but it'd be tough to use this on yourself.

And besides using this as its intended purpose -- to wrap around the waist and use for thrusting doggie style, I doubt there's really any other use for it. Unless you want to suspend the strap from the ceiling and create a mini-swing for your hamster.

Design / Craftsmanship / Material

My normally long, extremely detailed review here is very different from what you may be used to. Then again, you may just be dang relieved that my big mouth finally doesn't have a million things to say (write). This is due to the product being a simple black strap. I will still give as many details as needed though. Thought you were getting off easy, huh?



*Yes, that is a kitty paw in the photo. That's Patsie's paw and arm. She decided to stretch out on my bed and try to attack the straps mid-photograph*

The strap here is thicker in the middle, with light padding. The straps are only simple, but sturdy Nylon straps with plastic sliding adjusters. If you truly don't have a clue what these straps (not the actual part that goes around the waist, the straps) feel like, think back to the good ol' school days. Remember the adjustable straps on your Lisa Frank back pack? That's exactly what you have here. These straps are not going to fray or snap. They're sturdy and will hold a lot of weight.

The padding area that rests on the lower abdomen is made of a softer material, which is not stated on the product page or on the packaging or on Sportsheets website. And it also has a strip of the Nylon (remember, back pack like strap) material running through it for super ultra heavy-duty sturdiness. The padded area actually isn't all that padded, just enough to give you more comfort than you would if it were just all nylon. It seems to have a simple lining of foam sewed inside. It's sturdy as well because even if the strap gets folded up under clothing in drawers, it doesn't come out all warped and less foamy than before. Just don't expect to feel like you're floating on a puffy, velvety cloud or anything.

Neither the foamy like material or the nylon straps seem to absorb liquids too terribly much. Things have to sit before really absorbing, which is a plus.

The entire waist belt is plain ol' black. The only thing on it that's not black is the tiny "Sportsheets" logo tag on the padded part. Nothing overly sexual though, so that's appreciated, but I'd so have gone with the pink had it been available at the time.


Measurements:
Total Length: 36"
Length of pad: 14"


Handle holes: Pictured above. Fully adjustable. Adjusted up to: 19 1/2" If you happen to want no handle slots, simply slide the adjuster toward the end of the handle and it'll eliminate a hole, but it's much easier to use the handles.
Width of pad: 4"

This little dude is a "one size fits all". It's more than likely going to "fit" about all sizes without snapping or damaging, I would think.

The material isn't uncomfortable or anything, but I certainly wouldn't go giving it such a nice label as "plush." It's just as I described, a thin bit of padding. Nothing extravagant, but just fine. There isn't any removable covering to the waist belt, it's not a Liberator for Pete's sake.
    • Smooth
    • Well made / sturdy

Performance

Honestly, this is just a strap and it's border line useless. It's not something that enhances sex or positions so much that I even care to use it. It can make penetration deeper sometimes it seems, nothing so drastically different than not using the strap at all. Also, there are some things I felt that the strap just got in the way of, perhaps it's just our personal preferences though. For instance, in most cases, him using the little handles on the strap didn't actually allow him to go faster or have more control. Instead, it kind of messes with our rhythm if that makes sense. It makes it more work when trying to go fast and rough. It will elevate me a little and allow for somewhat deeper penetration, but he finds it easier and less work with his hands grasping my waist and holding me up. The strap also puts more distance between the two, making it more work than holding the receiever with your hands, and if you like a hands-on experience, it takes some of that intimacy away. In all honesty, the strap doesn't really give anything extra or make anything easier for us than just using our hands and bodies! Perhaps it'd be more useful for someone that has a hard time holding their partner up?


It doesn't require a high school diploma to use this. As long as you have hands, arms and a willing partner who'll allow you to wrap this around her/him, you should be able to use this without problem. Don't hold me to that though.

There are definitely a few different ways to use the strap and we have fun with it sometimes, although it's never used anymore. Here are a few ways we have used the strap:

*Doggy-style of course.

*Doggy-style with him slightly holding me up off the bed. My butt resting higher up on his lower abdomen. This is more for a g-spot reaching kind of experience and can work, but I can stick my bee-hiney in the air just the same, and he can hold me off the bed easier with his hands alone. This does allow for very deep penetration though, especially if you for whatever reason, cannot get in that position without a products help.

*Wrapped around his backside, missionary position with me holding the strap. That's just crazy. It didn't do anything at all really and we can get rougher using hands, no strap necessary. This position also keeps my hands on the strap and not him.

*Me slightly bending over the bed, resting my hands or elbows on the bed. Him using the handle of strap to hold me up off the ground. Works nicely this way! This was the best use we found for the strap. However, he prefers the standing position while holding me, my legs wrapped around his waist. In this case, the strap cannot be of use.

As for storage, I'm sure you have a drawer or a closet that this will fit perfectly in. If not, there's always a kitchen cabinet.

    • Comfortable during use

Packaging

Weighing only 0.3 pounds, this baby will pack into even the most stuffed luggage, as well as even a medium sized clutch. OK that last one would be stretching it, but if you totally wanted to pack this strap into a clutch and have little room for your makeup or whatever you plan to keep in a clutch, then it would work. Probably. It probably would work.

Would I personally travel with this strap? Not likely. Only because it's not a product I really like enough or one that is useful enough for me to want to take it on a trip with me. We're going to Panama in a couple weeks and guess who ain't invited? This strap. That's who. However, I will let you in on a secret as to who is invited. My Pink Passion Wand. He is invited.

If for some reason this strap came in handy enough for you to want to take it on a trip, you could easily do so. Probably easier than bringing a toy even. Without the packaging (definitely without the packaging!) this strap isn't likely to attract attention even if your bag was left open or someone saw it. If they took a close look and actually held it, their mind might get creative enough to get a hint as to what you use this for, but it's not overly sexual at all.

Now the packaging, it should just be destroyed. Scratch that. It should've never been included looking all nasty like it does. I'd have been happier to include nothing but the strap sitting in my mailbox. The packaging is just downright crude, rude and trashy. Too much nudity and all that junk. I got rid of it asap.

There weren't any extra instructions or information included, thank God because knowing Sportsheets, they'd have made sure they put some kind of nudity on it too.

The box is not good for storage. It's a simple, what you call "clamshell" I think. It's a clear package and the nudity is on a paper insert, so it could be thrown out and you use the clear plastic to store the strap. It ain't worth keeping though. You'll save a whole lot of space by recycling it and storing your strap by its lonesome.

The paper insert has huge text that says "I like it doggie style" and "The best position just got better!" as well as "the doggie style enhancing strap." And don't forget "Finally a sex toy you can get behind." No, that's not overkill at all, right? Then there's tiny text with information on how comfortable and beneficial this simple strap is. It also shows demonstations of different positions to use the strap in.

And most importantly, it comes with a "limited lifetime warranty." Limited, but lifetime!

I like It Doggie Style is made in the USA.

Care and Maintenance

Not to be too critical, but I did wonder if Sportsheets was too busy plastering the packaging with every way imaginable to say "doggie style strap" and perhaps in the midst of all that hard thinking, they forgot to freaking add cleaning instructions. There are none. So Doggy style strap owners kind of have to use their best judgement here. Since it doesn't really get dirty, unless you leak on it, cleaning isn't always a huge deal with this like it would be for an insertable toy. We personally have never leaked on it, but that could be due to tossing it aside most of the times before we're even finished. If you do though, I would recommend using a small dab of an anti-bacterial cleanser and dabbing it with a damp washcloth. I've ran water over it once before with no problems. It didn't damage, but it's possible that mysterious foam material (also unlisted as to what the heck exactly it is) could damage if you continue to clean with a lot of water.

Honestly, if I happened to leak on this, I'd pull out my natural toy cleaner (both anti-bacterial and anti-fungal due to the fabulous properties of tea tree oil) and spray that thing til' the cows come home.
    • Easy to store

Experience

Mostly, we prefer intercourse with him holding me up. He likes to have his hands on me and the strap, he says was just frustrating. I feel the same. I'd much prefer to feel his hands holding onto my love handles. Also, while holding the strap, he's unable to use his hands as he normally does, to roam and caress elsewhere on me. Let's see. Should I hold onto the strap this time or my lovie? Hmmm. Sorry, strap! You get the boot!
