Our First Harness, But Not Our Last!

Thankfully, my girlfriend and I decided not to let this harness dissuade us from pegging. We did purchase another brand and style that she is much happier with. If you have one shot at impressing your partner, go for a product that can be adjustable to the individual.

We gave the product two stars because it is reasonably priced and there wasn't a lot of discomfort.

Use

This harness, I believe, is best suited for advanced participants in pegging, strap-on play due to the material. My girlfriend looked extremely hot in the Grrl Toyz harness even without the dildo. The O-ring can be changed out with a larger or smaller size. She didn't have any trouble putting on the boy short–style nylon panties. She did have a slight issue with getting the straps tightened. She was excited and nervous, and she tightened two of them so that the snap on the O-ring came undone. The dildo also wasn't in an erect position and was more like a semi-erect penis.

Material

The nylon material was soft against her skin. It was very nice not to have anything pinch her as this was our first time with a strap-on. Before she put the Grrl Toyz panty-style harness on, I rinsed it out. The fabric bled for a long time with warm water, so I then decided to use some detergent to help bleed the material. We then put the harness in the dryer (minus the rubber O-ring), and it held up nicely in the dryer.

The material is thin and, as stated above, didn't hold the dildo upright. It gets minus points for that, as well as for the fact that she stated she didn't have much control and needed to hold on to the dildo through much of the pegging.

Design / Craftsmanship

I thought she would enjoy the panty-style harness, but I was wrong. The dildo was sitting higher than she would like, and she didn't get as much clitoral stimulation as she should have. She stated that if it were lower, she would have been able to orgasm while pegging me.

The legs were a little tight, and the waist was loose. This didn't help the situation as she had now lost control of the dildo and was forced to hold it in place many times during our twenty-minute introduction to pegging. Since it fully covered her lady parts, when I had the opportunity to reach around, I could only rub my finger against the panty. I would have liked to have been able to have her pause in her thrusting so that I could finger her a little bit.

Size / Fit

As stated above, the leg holes were tight on her, and the waist was a little large. I know ladies have more trouble shopping for clothes than men, but the fit wasn't perfect for her. The only adjustments are in holding the dildo. It is not possible to adjust the waist, and the sizing really doesn't work well for women. The sizing is listed as the following ranges: small (21"-36"), medium (27"-44"), and large (31"-52"). Having a range of 15 inches is too much for a product like this.
    • Can be worn under clothing
    • Ill fitting

Performance

The nylon material was comfortable; however, since the waist was a little roomy, there was too much give when she was pegging me. The panty-style harness slid and didn't want to stay on her in the proper position; hence, she spent a great deal of time holding the waistband and/or the dildo.

If there had been an adjustment around the waist to help keep it snug, we wouldn't have looked for a replacement as soon as we decided that we both enjoyed pegging.

Care and Maintenance

Before stepping into the harness, wash it well. If you will be putting it in the dryer, make sure you remove the rubber O-ring so it doesn't melt.

This garment will bleed if not washed thoroughly, and it is machine safe. We had stored the panty harness in our toy drawer (that is until the replacement arrived).

Packaging

The packaging was a cute, thin cardboard box. It was probably a little bigger than it needed to be, but I understand the advertising rules of packaging. There weren't any instructions included inside, just the statement on the box that basically said, "Step into the shorts, insert the dildo, and then tighten up the straps."

Personal comments

While we both enjoyed our first time pegging, we decided that the panty-style harness wasn't suited for her. The dildo sat too high and wasn't standing at attention, and it flopped around like a semi-erect penis will do. The waistband wasn't snug enough for her to devote all of her attention to what she was doing to me, and it kept trying to slip off of her.

For the above reasons, I don't believe this would be a good first-time harness. And I don't believe that people who are experienced at pegging would put up with the above oddities of this product.
Follow-up commentary
We attempted the Grrl shorts harness once more time. The fit still wasn't comfortable. Compared to the Joque Harness we find the Joque to be a better harness, fit and comfortable for the both of us. I am glad my girlfriend still wants to peg me after the not so great attempts.

    Thanks for the great review! I particularly like that you gave the waist size range for all the sizes, not just the one you reviewed. Any idea as to the leg size range?
