Sophia's red rider

Harness and dildo set by

Add resource

Beginner friendly!

If you're just starting, out go for it. Sophia will always be my first, and it's definitely worth it. From here, I feel like I can graduate to more "advanced harnesses" with confidence. The bright red will also make you feel fun and adventurous, and sometimes even sexy and dangerous.

Use

Sophia's Red Rider is great for couples who are just trying out strapping it on! The adjustable straps are great for all sizes, and the curved dildo hits my g-spot, and my girlfriends g-spot, perfectly every time. One of my favorite features of this harness is the fact that you can take out the ring for the dildo and replace it with a bigger/smaller size to fit your favorite dildo. The padded front is also great when you really get going; it helps prevent any discomfort caused by hard and fast thrusting. The dildo that comes with the harness is also amazing; it can be used in or out of the harness. It has a suction cup base, so you can use it against a headboard, wall, floor, or anywhere you like. For a first time harness, it's a dream.

Material

When you are just starting out, nylon straps are okay. However, as you use it more and more, you might experience some discomfort -- especially if you are a curvy girl. The padding for the base of the harness can get very dirty very easily, especially if you and/or your partner tend to get very wet. The dildo is made of a smooth PVC material that is easy to clean. It can be used in showers and hot tubs with ease.

    • Water friendly

Design / Craftsmanship

The adjustable straps are great; they are very similar to a rock climbing harness. If you're in a hurry, the straps can be confusing. The straps are nylon, so they can randomly unravel. The snaps around the ring are great, because you can easily change out the O-ring to match your favorite toy! The dildo for this harness curves for great g-spot stimulation. The straps don't cover the vagina or anus, so you are free to play as you like.
    • Fits many size toys
    • Multiple ways to use

Size / Fit

First and foremost, I'm a big girl, so I was a little concerned when looking for a harness to fit me and my girlfriend. Red rider delivers with its adjustable straps, and you can wear it high or low, depending on your preference. Its also pretty easy to hide under jeans for some fun gender play.
    • Adjustable
    • Can be worn under clothing
    • Will fit most body sizes and types

Performance

The moment I opened the box, I was excited. The straps were a little confusing at first, but once I got them somewhat adjusted, I was able to easily slip it on and get to work. It can be put on multiple ways where you adjust the straps on your body, and you can also put the dildo on before or after putting the harness on.
    • Chafes
    • Comfortable during use
    • Difficult to put on

Care and Maintenance

The dildo is easy to clean, just like most dildos. Antibacterial soap and water, then pat dry/air dry. It must dry before storing. The harness, on the other hand, is kind of odd. I suggest machine washing, but if that's not an option, hand washing will work. The padding gets smelly easily if it gets wet, and so do the straps around the crotch.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store
    • Hard to clean

Packaging

Nice box -- nothing too special, though. No instructions were included, which was upsetting with the odd straps, being a beginner.
    • Not discreet

Personal comments

To be honest, the bight red color made me giggle at first. I felt pretty silly, but once I got into my own rhythm and really started to get accustomed to it, I completely forgot about the color. It has become a staple for me and my girlfriend.
    • Gender play

Experience

When I first got my red rider, I was in my first serious sexual relationship with another woman. I had wanted to try strapping it on, but I was completely lost. I didn't know anything about size, or straps, or rings. It was a little scary. After about a hour of walking around the only adult store in my town, asking a million questions, and weighing the pros and cons... I made my decision. Putting it on was a little difficult at first; the straps got a little confusing. Once it was on, I was ready to go! Using it the first time was difficult, and I feel bad for my girlfriend. With time, I've gotten much better, and now I am a pro. From the other side of the dildo, it feels amazing. The curved design hits the g-spot perfectly, and it's comfortable and pleasurable in multiple positions. If you are just starting out, this is the toy for you. However, after awhile it gets a little worn down, and it can smell a bit. It will also last you a long time, being a fantastic standby.
