Oh Yeah Baby, I'm Daring!

This product made my first venture into animal friendly land worth it -- I may just continue to by nylon in the future! It's almost just as sexy and sturdy as leather, but just almost.

Use

Hmm.. the best use for this harness is well, I do believe it's to fuck people with! And that service it doles out quite nicely. I love wearing this over a pair of black lacy undies, but it looks great on its own as well.

It's a wonderful beginner's harness, but I wouldn't particularly recommend this for more advanced users because it's not as sturdy or made of as smooth of material as other, more expensive harnesses are. This simplistic G-string harness, though, is pretty hard to come by, and this one serves its purpose quite well considering the price and simplicity of it all. It's best for people who're just curious about strap on play and want to dip their toes in the water. I can see this showing wear pretty soon, so if you're looking to add something to your collection that you want to keep for a long time, I suggest you look towards one of the wonderful leather alternatives EdenFantasys has up.

It really is compact -- it'll pop right into your bag for a lunch date. Whether you're using this for anal play, vaginal play, packing, or otherwise, you'll really get your bang for your buck with this little lady. I've heard from others that this guy is compatible with the Feeldoe, which is pretty dope because I know that guy tends not to stay in place as well as one would hope and needs a cute simplistic harness. It's pretty hard to find a harness that could work for the Feeldoe, though, so I'm pleasantly surprised at that. A+ Sportsheets! Thinkin' ahead.

Material

The harness is made from nylon and metal, both EXTREMELY safe substances. Since it's nylon, it's of course waterproof, just be sure to let it dry in the sun or use a hairdryer to make sure all that water doesn't get trapped in there.

I'm a leather freak, so I was a bit hesitant to try this harness. Nylon doesn't bring good thoughts to my head. All I think is that scratchiness, ugliness, and unpleasantness abounds. Turns out, thank the Lord, this is not the case at all! The nylon is soft as silk, which caught me off guard. It doesn't chafe on me at all. I was shocked! It's really the most comfortable harness.

The other great thing about this harness is that it's animal friendly. I've been wooed into vegetarianism by my housemates and lack of funds due to college-kid status, so I'm at least trying to be more conscientious towards animal rights, even with my sex toys.

My house gets really cold at night, and we don't pay for a heater, so if you leave this in a cold place, the metal o-rings WILL get cold and they WILL stun you. I've taken to holding it between my thighs for a bit before play, but you can also use your hands if you have this problem.

One last note on material -- I've used and cleaned this a few times, and I haven't noticed any kind of color bleeding yet, which is a good sign.

Design / Craftsmanship

It's not intimidating. I love that. It makes it so much easier for people to lose their inhibitions and feel at ease trying something new. Well, I guess unless you get a change of O-rings and strap a 2" diameter cock in there. Anyway, I think this is a dainty and quite convincing way to introduce anyone to strap on sex.

My biggest con about this product is that even when you get the fit perfectly right, it still tends to slip around on your body. I tried tying knots like another reviewer suggested, but they didn't really work too well. I'm still not quite sure how to fix the problem other than cinching myself in, but I was trying to buy a harness, not a one inch corset that just makes me look like a muffin top.

I do love the fact that it's so light. I feel like I'm wearing nothing except for the dildo! I like not having the feeling of wearing armor.

It's made well.. for the amount you pay. It's only $18.99 and that's what you get. I can see that this harness will last me a few good runs within the course of a year, but I doubt it'll stay tight around me anytime after that. Every time I wear the Bare As You Dare harness, I can feel it becoming easier and easier to slide off. However, if you can find a way around this, the rest of the harness is extremely sturdy. The nylon isn't going to fall apart and the snaps can withstand a great amount of tension.

I actually don't have any 1 and 1/2" toys, although I will be getting one soon, so I bought another package of o-rings. It's really easy to change out the rings, just pop open the snaps, replace the o-ring, close the snaps, and you're ready to go. It would've been cool if Sportsheets could've made the front ring 1 and 1/2" and the back ring 1 and 3/8 or 5/8" thick. At least there would've been some room for versatility. ::Hint hint guys!::

Size / Fit

This harness has three straps that all join at two 1 and 1/2 inch o-rings at each end. One strap sits on each hips, with one running from the butt to the front. There's not really any "front" or "back" as it pretty much looks as fits the same way whichever way you try it on, but I think it's best to step into it whichever way you find it easiest to adjust the straps. There are three adjusters, one for each strap. Wherever the nylon bends over on itself to anchor to an o-ring or adjuster, there sits two flat round studs.

It fits nicely on my hips, although I've noticed that on smaller people, such as myself, that the straps tend to fall freely and graze my thighs and the back of my butt. The adjuster for the strap under my butt sits on top of my butt so the free nylon dangles right there. I still can't tell whether I actually like it or not. It may bother some people, but others might actually find it quite arousing.

This harness expands to fit however you like it; it goes up to a fifty four inch waist and sixty inch hips, so lots of differently shaped people can try it on. I don't suggest it for men however, because I can definitely see that the middle strap might cause some pinching or chafing. However, I haven't actually found a willing male victim who'll strap this gorgeous baby on and tell me, so it's always worth a try.

The really great thing about this G-string harness is that you can adjust the thing EVERYWHERE. This means that the o-ring can sit as high or as low as you'd like, which not a lot of harnesses can do. Just be careful to allow for enough room for your skin to breathe unless you like having red chafing marks.

It's easy to wear this both under and over clothes, so whether you're planning to wear this all day for some spontaneous lovin' or planning to put this girl on over a sexy XXXmas outfit, you're golden. I've worn this harness out all day, and I can safely say that it's very comfortable to wear, even for more than five hours.

The design is G-string, you're bound to have the harness rub your clit. I didn't find this style to be off-putting, I actually thought it was quite pleasurable! The material is soft yet firm enough to provide some noticeable pleasure. I had a few "Oh!" moments during play. It was a nice little addition to the usual session. Some people don't really like the sliding this harness does in the butt and between the lips, but again, different strokes for different folks. You can always try to wear underwear underneath, but you'll still get the pressure from the harness. Again though, I really loved it with and without underwear.

Performance

I really like this harness for the most part. I was interested in just having a go with it, and it served its purpose really well for the time being. I felt comfortable in it, even if it came a little loose at the end. It's so easy to readjust so it didn't really bother me.

It only comes with one o-ring, and it's 1 and a 1/2" diameter, but that's a pretty good average size. It's not difficult to get another set of o-rings on EdenFantasys anyway. They only cost about $8, I believe. Getting toys in and out was even simpler than changing o-rings. Between this harness and the 3 ring package, you can fit virtually ANY toy from EdenFantasys into this harness. It's versatility is really astounding. I definitely did have a learning curve with this harness, though. It can take some time to get how to adjust the harness and set your toy in this one, but after a few tries and some practice, it'll be second nature and you can get this baby ready in a split seconds notice.

It never treated me wrong and chafed me, but it did give me an orgasm once or twice, the sneaky fucker! It rests so perfectly on my clit that I couldn't help but give into the rhythms and give myself up to the Bare As You Dare harness. You can also, as I stated before, set this dildo as high or low as you like. If you set it low, it can provide even more stimulation. Aye aye aye what a good experience this twenty dollars was!

Care and Maintenance

This product is really easy to clean. Just throw it in the wash or wipe it off with a damp cloth and antibacterial soap. Be sure to dry it, though, whether in the sun or with a hair dryer; you don't want all that water to stay caught in there. You can't sterilize the nylon, which is too bad, so you probably don't want to use this with a whole bunch of people, alright kids?

Oh! And try to be careful when you wash this guy.. I tried throwing it in the wash once and it got all tangled up. I just hand clean it now, but if you're game to spend an hour trying to figure the thing out again, machine washing's still there to try.

You can store this in your toy box all by its lonesome or in the packaging. It's not a dust attractor, so it's pretty safe to leave around the house. You can also store the metal and nylon separately, but that's only if you're super paranoid or just have wayyy too much time on your hands. It may take some time to figure out how to put the damn thing together again if you take it apart completely.
    • Easy to clean

Packaging

The packaging is not subtle AT. ALL. The package is pink and white with a lady trying way too hard to look like Megan Fox wearing only a bra, this harness, and a purple dildo. It has "STRAP ON" emblazoned all over the damn thing, which instructions featured on the front. It says "Stylish 3-way adjustable thong style strap-on," "Fits up to 60" (152cm) hips," "Machine Washable," and "Replaceable O-ring." On the side of the box, the girl is shown from the back, with no bra, bending over. The other side has the features repeated in 8 different languages. The back of the box shows a mannequin wearing the harness with instructions on how to wear it and other features.

You don't really need a box to store this because it's so easy to keep clean, but if you're a neat/germ freak like I am, I suggest it.
