Material

This harness is made out of Nylon. Nylon is a synthetic (petroleum-derived) material that was originally created as an inexpensive alternative to silk during WWII. It is lightweight, strong, and durable. Also with nylon, there is no need to worry about water, lube, and juices ruining your harness because the fibers in nylon are non-absorbent and are not harmed by chemicals. But beware: at high temperatures nylon can melt so watch open flames of candles and such. Read more: Facts About Nylon

With the non-absorbent material you should be able to wear this harness in the shower or pool. (But not a hot tub due to the damage heat may cause to the straps). I have not been able to try this out myself. And I would love to hear from anyone who has tried this harness in water.

The woven nylon straps are soft and comfortable on the skin. As best I can describe them, they seem to be similar to camping type material or back pack straps. They are very thin 1/2 inches wide and 1/16 of an inch thick. I love to feel the nylon on my skin tightening up as I use this harness. It sort of gives you a bondage type feeling that makes me tingle with pleasure all over. The straps are soft yet firm at the same time. Moreover, they do not leave marks or abrasions on your delicate areas. The nylon strap wraps around the crotch, splitting your vulva in half is an extremely nice feeling in my opinion.

Is nylon really an animal friendly Vegan material? Based on information found on Kidbeam.com nylon is a great clothing choice for an animal friendly life style.

Furthermore, when I received my harness.. it had no odor or taste.

Design / Craftsmanship

The design of the bare as you dare harness is similar to most harnesses with the exception of being a g-string. This one strap fits firmly between your vaginal lips and around your anal area to hold your dildo firmly in place. Being a g-string, the harness is extremely sexy and stylish with a look similar to a nice kinky g-string bought from a lingerie store.

I personally love the g-string style harness for its look and feel. But mostly because, I can slip it on while playing and not have to take a time out or anything. This really helps us to be in the moment and not worried about the mechanics. Honestly, I can put an anal friend in this harness and put it under my pillow. If the mood strikes for anal play, I can use the dildo with my hand without the harness straps getting in the way. Then latter if I want to wear the harness, I can discretely and easily slip it on while pleasing my partner orally. Having this option with a harness really makes my experience with one more comfortable and not awkward moment.

It features three adjustment plastic pieces like those found on back pack straps. Two are located on each hip and one on the g-string area. Thankfully the design of the harness lets that adjustment piece be located next to the back o-ring right below your tail bone. This way it does not cut into your sensitive areas. When I use the harness I can't even feel these pieces.

The o-ring included with the harness is 1 1/2 inches diameter and has a visible weld. These types of o-rings are hard on your harness since the weld leaves a ridge which the straps rub across and fraying over time. When I tested my straps on the o-ring I could feel a slight snagging. Therefore, I suggest purchasing non-welded marine rings to ensure your harness has a long and happy life. Also, although I have not tried, rubber o-rings can be used with the harness.

oring and snaps

The adjustable snap closures in the front allows you to change o-rings to fit your favorite toys. Therefore, most dildos or vibrators that have a flared base, o-ring compatible, and have the same diameter can be use. Also, it has been reported in other reviews that these types of harnesses which have no back panel behind the o ring can be used with Feeldoe double ended dildo. Also when choosing a toy to use with this harness, I found that those with a thinner base are less bulky and therefore, more comfortable. Another factor to consider is the length of your dildo. I discovered that those that are about an inch or two longer than you would normally use or consider using are much easier when using to comfortably reach your partners backside. Picture that you are thrusting into something, smaller dildos may not go as deep as you'd like.


base comparison


Beginner anal kit
With this kit we used the purple piece which is 4 inches in length for our first experience using the harness. It was easy use and reached the area easily while its thin base sat nicely on my pelvic bone. In contrast, the 3 inch black piece did not reach my husband without me struggling to stay in the proper position.

Elements Theta With a length of 5 ¾ inches using this toy with the harness was more comfortable when thrusting than the other ones we tried. Although the base is thicker and a bit uncomfortable I wore it in my harness for about three hours without any real discomfort at all. It felt very comforting to me and sexy while I wore it.

Anal Starter At a whopping 6 ½ inches, this toy reached with no problem but with the extra inch.. I had to help it go in about half way to keep going in straight in place and not missing my target. Also the thin base was comfortable.

In like manner, the back o-ring looks sassy and cool. And can also be used to hold a dildo for your own personal penetration while wearing the harness. However, the back o-ring is not interchangeable. I found when slipping on the harness it is best to check this back piece to ensure that it is not folded under but rather laying flat. Once when using the harness I slipped it on during our play time and had no idea that the o-ring was not laying flat; I could feel something a bit different than previous times but not painful. When I went to take off the harness I discovered the flipped o-ring.

The harness is well made, sturdy, and can be used for extended periods of time comfortably. I have worn this harness during play time for about 3 hours at one time with no adverse effects that made me not like this product. It did not pinch or rub raw any area of my body, even my most delicate parts where left feeling great afterwards.

Size / Fit

The harness is supposed to fit those up to 60 inches. I wear a size 12 with a 34 inch waist and I had no problems wearing this piece comfortably and after adjusting it to fit there was a little over 13 inches left hanging in the back.

The measurements for each section of this harness should really help when deciding if this particular one will fit you properly. Therefore I took measurements of each and every part of the harness…

Side Straps:
Long section goes from front o-ring to the back 22 ¼ inches
Short section goes from back o-ring to front 9 3/8 inches

Crotch Straps:
Long section goes from front o-ring to back 17 ¾ inches.
Short section goes from back o-ring to front 1 ½ inches.

Performance

Curiously, I put on my jeans and walked around with it on for a while. Doing this was very stimulating and erotic. Just knowing what i had on underneath and that no one could tell got my juices flowing and fantasying about what was to come later that night.

After a while, I snuck off to see if the Doc Johnsons Anal Starter would fit the o-ring. Opps, the o-ring was too big and did not even come close to fitting. Thankfully, we have some extra stainless steel o-rings which we picked up at a boat repair shop to use for our rope play. I really like these type since there is no weld in the ring therefore, the rope or in this case nylon will not snag causing it to fray.

Changing the o-ring was real simple just unsnapping one at a time and re-snap it onto the new one. I did this very slow to make sure I did not get confused on which straps went where. It fit like a glove on our Doc Johnson. All of the sudden I realized I have a penis.

Needless to say my Hubby walked in on me trying to fit the dildo in and he grinned from ear to ear. With the curiosity of a sneaky cat, he wanted to see and feel the harness. It was such an erotic sensation to have him running his hands along the nylon straps, I felt like I was breathless. He was teasing me just a bit more in anticipation of what was to come of the night of love. I couldn't wait for more.

Care and Maintenance

Since this harness is not made out of leather but rather nylon cleaning is a snap. It can be spot cleaned with cool water and mild anti bacterial soap. Or it can be washed in the washer by removing the front o-ring and placing it in a pillow case. Nylon is sensitive to heat and should be washed and dried at cool temperatures or hung to dry to ensure your sexy harness will last for years.

Storage is easy with this piece. You can simply ball it up and place it in a drawer or your toy box. I choose to keep mine in a zip lock bag inside my toy box so I can keep up with it better. But, no matter which way you choose to store your harness there is no need to worry about others accidently seeing it and knowing what they are looking at. Since it is so small and simply nylon straps, in my opinion, no one would ever think this was a sex toy.
    • Easy to clean

Packaging

As always, EdenFantasys shipped my product in a plain cardboard box with nothing at all on the outside of the box or the return label that would hint as to what is inside. Rest assured, when your mail man delivers your box, it will not be an embarrassing moment. Also, EdenFantasys packs their boxes with care to ensure that there is no damage to your products during shipment.

The Bare as You Dare harness was packaged in a rectangluar cardboard box that a bit bulky and is not discreet at all. The front displays a model wearing the harness with a dildo. Also along the side in bullets the features of the harness are listed. The back on the other hand is a bit more infomative with insturctions and photos of how to put on and adust your harness.

Easy to put on. Adjusts in seconds.
1. Step into the strap-on placing the non-adjusting center webbing in the front.
2. To adjust: pull the webbing through the hip ladder locks until fit is secure.
3. Then pull the webbing through the "tong" lander lock.

Features listed are..
1. Thong-style strap-on with 1.5" metal O-ring
2. 3-way adjustable strap-on fits up to 60" hips
3. So small it fits in your purse or uner your clothes
4. Accommodates any flared base toy
5. Perfect for packing
Dildo not included

Inside of the box was the harness with no other bag just a bit of simple tissue paper to help keep the harness from moving aroundinthe box. Therefore, I suggest washing your harness before use. The box could be used for storage but for me I prefer recycling the cardboard and storing my harness in a zip lock bag.

Personal comments

There may be times when you find all the straps are taken off your harness and seeing a pile of straps you wonder well what do I do now...

Here is how I have found to put my harness back together easily.

Hold both o-rings in your hand with the o-ring for the back in the front and the front o-ring ( the one with no straps permatly attached) layered behind. Take one strap in your hand, untwist, and with the outer snap facing away from the o-ring bring the strap around and through the o-ring which you have layered in the back and snap. Repeat this process with each strap.

Experience

Once soon after me and my husband were married many years ago; I was a bit tipsy during our love making rime. And I slipped a finger into his butt. He loved it. The next day when he brought it up I acted like I had no idea what he was talking about. Fingers in the butt and men enjoying it? What does this mean? “Oh no”, I thought. Needless to say the subject was never spoken of again.

In actuality, most men love their prostates massaged but never talk about it because they may think that this type of stimulation is a stereotype of being gay. But in fact, stimulation of the p-spot is a normal type of sexual encounter that can be compared to g-spot orgasm’s. And most of all anal play is quite an adventure for men and women alike.

17 years later....
We hit a middle age crisis and began "rediscovering sex" After being on EF for a while anal did not seem so strange any more. My long ago fears that this was some sort of sign of being gay had long disappeared. One day while searching the forum I stumbled across a post about pegging. It seemed kind of intriguing. My husband was thrilled that after 17 yrs. I had finally opened up to the possibilities of anal play. We ordered a small anal toy that day. And he loved it. A few days after tying anal for the first time I came home to find my husband on Edenfantasys with his own wish list where he had placed all the harnesses and dildo's he thought looked nice. It was too cute seeing him act like a kind in a candy store. I was kind of shocked.

I have to admit at this point I was still a bit drawn back by his requests. But after seeing the pleasure he felt from shallow anal penetration. How could I say no, I was willing to try.

As I looked his long list of choices I decided real quickly that some of the styles available just were not sexy in my option. Such as, the style of harness with large frontal flaps up to the belly button. And if I was going to do this I defiantly wanted to feel sexy. Then I spotted the bare as you dare. It looked like g-string panties. It was very sexy and not intimating at all. They were ordered that night.

The first night we played with our new harness I surprised my husband when I came out of the shower with it and his anal dildo under my skirt and corset. It was kind of cute seeing a toy poking out from under my mini skirt. My husband smiled so big when I flashed him a peek of my newly found member.

We took it slow that night and spent a lot of time warming each other up. It was erotic anticipation on what was to come. I was very comfortable in my harness, it didn’t pinch or pull my delicate areas as we rolled around. Not even my small patch of hair was pulled. The strap splitting my lips was exciting. Before I realized exactly what we were doing Hubby had pulled the crotch strap to the side and his fingers were dancing across my g-spot.

Later on when it was my turn to please him with my new member it was like fireworks. Being able to use the harness and dildo easily to please my husband in no other way I could have before made me quiver with excitment. Seeing his pleasure while I pounded him was one of the most erotic moments we have had togeather. Nothing at all about his moment was awkward or uncomftable. It was not only an enjoyment for Hubby but for me as well.

Since this night we have played several times with our new found piece and toys. I and I have found that it is possible to adjust the straps where the back o-ring sits higher and the front o-ring sits right near your clit, which gives the dildo much better placement when used on my Hubby whey he lays on his back. When I wore the harness this way, I could feel a bit more pulling on the straps around my hips. But it was not anything major and the benefit for my self pleasure was amazing.

All in all the Bare as You Dare harness by Sportsheets is a great buy for the price and extremely comfortable. It is a great way to start your adventure into pegging and strap-on encounters. The pleasure that this brings is indescribable.
Follow-up commentary
Due to the middle strap on this harness I enjoy wearing it above the other harnesses I own. It has held up very well to repeated uses and washing. Also, the hardware has not tarnished or began rusting. I have never received a rope type burn from wearing it. In addition, Hubby likes how he can see my women hood when wearing it. Over all, this is our go to harness for pegging.
