Good Banging For The Buck

If you have a need to try fucking from the other side without emptying your wallet this could be the harness for you. The Simply Sexy Strap-On is easy to use, holds smaller size dildos for the potentially nervous receiver and provides a firm fit. While it's not the prettiest harness out there it gets the job done while still allowing you to get your sexy on.
Published:
Pros:
Sexy minimalistic design, easy adjustment, firm fit for good dildo control and most body sizes.
Cons:
Difficult to clean, crotch strap uncomfortable, cheap plastic buckles and nylon straps.

Use

The Simply Sexy Leather Strap-On is exactly that... simple and sexy! An excellent harness for those interested in delving into pegging play this wonderfully frugal piece of bedroom attire won't break your bank. Designed as a thong style this strap-on is made to fit women as opposed to the jock styles which can also be enjoyed by the male wearers out there. Lesbian partners or straight couples desiring penetration are the main audience for this product and this harness is not for those interested in frills or flash. This is a workhorse, Johnny lunch-pail type cock-holder for those people who want reasonable performance at a low price. The thoughtful designers at Sportsheets allowed for sizing that accommodates larger wearers and made adjustments for a strong fit quick and easy. Pros may not find this harness to their liking as the leather could be firmer and treated better but the black color and rivet construction made this experienced couple feel naughty and appreciate the functional simplicity.

Material

Ahhh, the scent of leather has been turning people on for eons! The front parts of all the leather pieces are treated smooth in a sexy bad-girl black but the back sides have been left raw which makes cleaning more difficult because water and bodily fluids can be absorbed. All leather joints are accomplished with rivet construction that seems quite robust and not prone to tearing with vigorous use. O-rings are shiny chrome as well as the D-rings at the sides of the front panel. The main material concern is the nylon straps used for side hip adjustments as well as the black plastic buckles. While these components make adjustments a breeze they also cheapen the look of the harness.

Design / Craftsmanship

Clearly the Simply Sexy Leather Strap-On was designed with minimalism in mind while also appealing to users craving a tough bondage-type look. Sportsheets managed to accomplish this quite nicely while also keeping the price affordable. The nylons buckles are the friction style so adjustments are as simple as pulling on the straps to tighten and lifting up the buckle end to loosen. Unfortunately the ease of adjustment is made possible by using cheaper nylon strapping but this is only noticeable from the back view. The crotch strap is made from leather and less easily adjustable and more difficult to clean which is strange that it would be the material chosen to be sliding up your cracks! Plenty of material length is available to fit people of almost any size. The front leather panel is thick enough to keep your choice of attached phallus from wandering around too crazily but supple enough to be comfortable and not chafe. An o-ring secured by two snaps is the method of cock attachment and is simple, secure, and effective but the 1 1/2" diameter of the ring means only smaller toys will fit this harness. I recommend investing in a larger ring but we used one of our 2" metal cock rings to hold a bigger dick. The riveting seems durable and at some points is also reinforced with stitching to allow for worry-free tightening of the harness without tearing.

Size / Fit

This harness is built for users up to 60" hip size and those with a smaller measurement can trim off the excess nylon strapping easily to prevent the material from flailing around during thrusting. A wide variety of body shapes can be accommodated and the adjustments are done easily and quickly by stepping into the strap-on and tightening the waist straps to a snug fit followed by the thong strap. Firm pulls of the straps are all that is required to lock your cock holder in place tightly. The positioning of the o-ring in the front panel is low enough to mimic a real dicks place of origin and because of this the harness does ride low on the hips. Unfastening the two snaps releases the o-ring allowing a toy to be inserted and snapped back tightly in place. Toys with a base up to 3" wide can be used in the harness before it would interfere with the straps holding the o-ring. Remember that only small diameter dildos fit the included o-ring and we found that even Slim Jim (by Happy Valley) was a tight fit. We found the hip straps quite cozy but the thong strap dug into my crotch uncomfortably when I adjusted it tight enough for my liking. Comfort is a trade off with control because the looser the thong strap the more floppy the front panel and hence the dildo.

Performance

While I'm certainly not a pegging pro I have been around the block a few times in some other entry level harnesses, both jock style and thong style. I'm very impressed with how little the Simply Sexy Strap-on wanders around during use! If the thong strap didn't dig into my vagina so badly I'd tighten this harness even more but I like to take it easy on my lady bits. From the time I opened the box to having a dildo inserted with the harness adjusted for a firm fit about two minutes elapsed and that included spending some time looking for a small diameter toy to fit the o-ring. I'd say that counts as simple adjustment. The buckles held the straps tightly and never loosened during some pretty vigorous pumping on my husband who, I must mention, is quite enraptured by my sexy look in this harness. Changing out the o-ring to a bigger size was easy and allowed for us to experiment with some larger dildos.

    • Holds toys very well

Care and Maintenance

Because the back sides of all the leather pieces are untreated cleaning can be a mild pain. We use a damp cloth to wipe down the front sides and try to keep water and bodily fluids away from the harness as much as possible. This cannot be thrown in the laundry or immersed to clean! I have worn underwear under the harness to try to keep it clean and eliminate the crotch chafing but it's not my favorite because I think it makes the harness less sexy. The strap-on folds into a very small space and we always ensure it's completely dry before putting it into our toy chest.
    • Easy to store
    • Hard to clean

Packaging

The Simply Sexy Leather Strap-On even arrives in a sexy box with a curvy shape I'm sure is meant to resemble a woman's hips. A bleach blonde porn star clutching her store-bought boobs stares from the packaging while wearing the product but it's surprisingly not too tacky. The features of the harness are described including the easy adjustment, genuine leather construction, and limited lifetime warranty. Sportsheets slogan of 'Keeping Couples Connected' makes quite a bit of sense....
The only included instructions are written on the back of the box and describe in three short lines how to don the harness. The box is too bulky to use for long term storage but the recyclable material is sure to make the garbage man do a double take!

    Good review! Thing style is not my thing for the same reason and besides, I enjoy having genital access that a jock style harness affords.
    I also don't think guys can wear 90% of jock type harnesses, they are primarily made for women.

    This sounds like a good beginner harness. I can't help but want to save up for something fancy though... *sigh*
