A Great "First" Strap-on

Overall, this is a great product for beginners. The New Comers Strap-On Kit offers a comfortable harness that can be adjusted to fit up to 60" hips. The dildo is small (3/4" diameter) and purple, so intimidation becomes a non-issue. If you're looking for your first strap-on, this toy is a wonderful, inexpensive way to take that first step.

extremely useful review

Use

As it states in its name, the New Comers Strap-On Kit is a good choice for beginners in all sorts of strap-on play. My partner and I use it for vaginal sex, but as you can see from other reviews, it can definitely be used for anal sex as well.

The harness itself is comfortable and easy to use. All of the straps are adjustable, making it perfect for those in relationships with someone of a different size than themselves if you'll both be using it.

The dildo included is silicone, and as EdenFantasys recommends with waterproof silicone toys, it's best to soak this toy is warm water before use to warm it up. I learned first-hand that being penetrated with a cold dildo is rather uncomfortable. Also, be sure to use a water-based lube when using silicone toys.

Advanced users would likely be displeased with this toy due to the small size of the dildo, as it is only 3/4" in diameter and 5" long.

Material

The silicone dildo is one of the great selling points of this kit. Although this is the first sex toy I ever bought, I had done my research and knew that silicone is the safest material. Although I only use this toy with my partner, I like knowing that it can be completely sterilized. The dildo itself is smooth and somewhat flexible. There are no visible seams on this toy. These qualities in addition to the help of a water-based lubricant make penetration very comfortable.

The harness is nylon, so it is also hypo-allergenic. The straps feel soft, and are not abrasive during wear. You can easily pull the straps tight and not worry about feeling the fabric itching or digging into you like a harder fabric might.

Design / Craftsmanship

The harness seems well-made. The strap around your hips is adjustable on either side where you can pull the straps tight, and the leg straps also have this feature on the side. The 4-way adjustable straps make this easy to adjust when first putting it on and during wear if necessary. The o-ring is not interchangeable, but it is compatible with toys up to 1 1/4". This harness cannot be worn with a double-ended dildo because it has a piece of soft fabric behind the o-ring. I personally think this is better for beginners as it makes the harness more comfortable for the wearer.

I'm very glad I picked a double strap harness rather than a g-string harness. I find this design very comfortable, and I think most people would agree. The straps are a bit long, but that's necessary if it's going to fit such a wide range of sizes of people (up to 60" hips).

The dildo is purple silicone, and it is nicely shaped. It has a slight curve, which can stimulate the g-spot. The diameter is 3/4" and length is 4 1/2" insertable, 5" total. Although the diameter seemed like a perfect fit for my partner and I, we both agree that we wish the dildo was a little longer. This dildo is not at all intimidating and can make "first times" more comfortable for both men and women.

Size / Fit

I'm rather petite and my girlfriend has been blessed with more wide-set hips, and this harness has plenty of room to spare when on either of us. The straps are long, so it can adjust to fit all body shapes. Keep in mind that the maximum hip size is 60".

It fits comfortably on both of us, with the leg straps resting on your upper thighs right under your butt. We each had a little trouble adjusting the harness the first time in order to get the dildo to sit where we wanted it/where we thought it should be, but I think that's more of a problem with us than the harness or kit. We're both completely new to strap-on play, and overall found this product easy to wear.
    • Adjustable
    • Fits comfortably
    • Will fit most body sizes and types

Performance

The harness was great, easily adjusted and comfortable to wear. Neither of us had any problems putting it on or taking it off. The provided dildo itself sits securely in the harness and stays secure during use. We haven't tried it with any other toys yet, but if we do I'll be sure to mention that in my follow-up.

For performance, I was more pleased with the harness than the dildo. We had a bit of trouble with the dildo because of it's size. Although both of us think the 3/4" is perfect for us as beginners, the length left a bit to be desired. The dildo often comes all the way out, even when you don't mean it to, and in order to avoid that you have to restrict your movement to shorter strokes. We had to get a little creative with positioning as well, but with practice this isn't a huge problem.
    • Comfortable during use
    • Easy to put on
    • Holds toys very well

Care and Maintenance

The harness is nylon, and the packaging says it's machine washable. I get a little worried about washing it that way often because I don't want to wear it out, so I typically hand wash it after use and only machine wash after a handful of times.

The dildo is silicone, so you can boil it or put it in the top rack of your dishwasher to fully disinfect it. Because I live at school and don't have a dishwasher, I typically just use soap and hot water. I've found that dust clings to this toy, so make sure you clean it before using it as well as after.
    • Easy to clean

Packaging

The strap-on and dildo were packaged together. The front of the pink box has a photograph of an attractive heterosexual couple with the woman wearing the strap-on. The outside of the box lists the feature of the product:
- 4-way adjustable strap-on
- Please silicone dildo
- Fits up to 60" hips
- Machine washable

The back has the same list of features, adding that this kit is "perfect for beginners or pegging" and that the o-ring accepts dildos up to 1 1/4" in diameter. The instructions are minimal, also listed on the back of the box, simply explaining how to put on the harness.
    • Recyclable

Experience

I think all I have to say is be patient. My partner and I were really hesitant the first time we used this, I broke out into giggles, we got frustrated, and it wasn't a very pleasant experience. With more practice, it becomes obvious that this is a good product. The dildo really is the perfect size for beginners, and the harness is easy to wear.

I've also found that the bonus of this product is that even when my partner isn't around I can take the dildo out of the harness and use it alone.
Follow-up commentary
I should clarify. I like it, but that doesn't mean it is still perfect for me. I'm just ready to step it up a bit. The dildo that came with this strap-on kit is completely smooth and only 3/4". Since the O-ring can take up to 1 1/4", that'll be my next purchase. I want something a little thicker, a little longer, and with some more texture.

That said, I do still enjoy using this toy, both the dildo and the harness together and the dildo alone. I'm glad this was my first strap-on.

    I'm glad to see that there are harnesses out there for the non media definition of Beautiful. I get so frustrated with everything being for the skinny ladies. I myself like the more curvy women. I too had to laugh at the wide set hips comment. Thank You. We were going to be getting this one soon.
