Pretty Purple Pounder

If you are looking for a good all round harness this might be a good bet for you. It is made out of nice leather, has a soft suede inside, adjustable hips and legs, two different sized O-rings, and large backing. This harness is a bit on the larger side. This harness has no fancy bells or whistles, but it is a nice practical harness that is great for someone starting to explore strap-on sex. Overall a good choice.

Use

La Strap On by The Stockroom is exactly as the name sounds. A strap on harness. So you need a dildo with the harness. It is designed for the female anatomy in my opinion. Male harnesses tend to have somewhere for their genitals to go. This harness does not. It can be used for both female on female play or female on male play. I personally only have experience with my girlfriend using this on me and it worked great, but I see no reason why it would not transfer to female on female play just as well.

This harness would work well for beginners. It has lots of adjustment, lots of harness and will give you a lot of control. The only deterrence for beginners would be the price. It is made out of leather, so it is more expensive than some of the other harnesses you can buy. That being said it will also last a lot longer.

The harness does only come in one size, so there are some limitations based upon the circumference of your waist. It is rated to go up to a size of 42 inches. I cannot comment on how accurate that is though.

Material

The harness is made out of leather. Leather is a material that comes from animals and it made from their hide. It does not specific what type of leather this is, but I would guess it is cowhide.

Leather is a porous material, so you cannot sterilize it. That being said, you can give it a good cleaning. I only have a single partner, so I do not have problems with wanting to share this toy. You could share this toy though. It would not be 100% safe, but if you clean leather properly it is fairly safe to play with non fluid bonded partners.

This toy has two types of leather on it. The outside is a patent leather. So that is just a leather with a shiny finish to it. The inside of the toy is made out of suede. You get suede by cutting leather a specific way. Suede is softer, but also more prone to damage and therefore does not last quite as long.

The suede inside of the toy feels quite nice when wearing this toy. Overall it is a nice feature. The leather seems to be pretty average in terms of thickness. I think it is likely a good balance between keeping the leather flexible and having good durability on the toy. Leather is definitely not waterproof and you should avoid getting water on it, as much as possible.

Leather does smell like leather, but this fades quickly over time. I found this toy barely even had much of a leather scent when I opened it out of the box.

Then the toy has metal O-rings and rivets on it. This do not come in contract with the skin so you do not feel them. They are metal and should likely last a long time. I do not know what metal they are made out of. If you have a nickel allergy you might want to send stockroom an email before buying this harness as that is a possibility.

Design / Craftsmanship

This harness is a low rise style harness. This means the harness hangs closer to where a penis would actually hang. So you are not thrusting from your belly button you are thrusting from your pubic bone. The point of this is so that you get a more authentic feel of what it would be like to have a penis. It is also meant to ride over top of your clitoris and vagina and provide some stimulation by lightly rubbing against your genitals.

The harness has two straps that run from the front to the back of the harness. They run along the inside of your legs and come around to the back where the hug your each one of your buttcheeks. There is also a very wide strap that runs along the back to provide extra support for the harness. This helps to keep it on quite securely.

All of the straps are adjustable. So there are two straps that can be adjusted on the portion that runs around your hips. And then there is a strap on each of the leg straps. The waist can be adjusted from 28-42 inches. Remember this is a lower rise harness. So your measuring point should be just on top of your hips. The straps adjust just like a belt. So there are holes and then you just buckle on the desired tightness of your choice. The are comfortable when wearing the toy. They do poke out a bit though, so if your boyfriend/girlfriend is on top of you (cowgirl/cowboy) then they can push into his/her legs a bit. This can be easily remedied with putting a towel on top of it though.

One of the nice design features on this toy is the adjustable O-ring. The toy comes with two O-rings. One that is 1.5 inches and one that is 1.75 inches. This allows you to choose that ring that will best fit the dildo of your choice. I like this because it creates a more secure and tight fit for smaller dildos. There are three buckle straps on the front of the harness that can be un-buckled and let you choose the ring of your choice. I quite like this design feature as it is relatively unique. The rings will fit a dildo anywhere from 1 inch in diameter all the way up to 1.75 inches, but nothing larger.

Overall the toy seems well made. I can find no major flaws in how it was made and I easily expect that toy to last longer than 10 years.

Here is the harness:


Here you can see the large back:


Here you can see the O-ring. Notice there are two. A small and large one allowing the adjustment:


Here are what the buckles look like:
    • Fits many size toys
    • Interchangeable o-ring
    • Well made / sturdy

Size / Fit

My girlfriend's waist is around the 30 inch mark. And this toy fit her. I cannot comment on the low and high end of measurements, but they do seem reasonable. Overall it was comfortable for her to wear and she found the fit to be good.

Overall I think it should fit a wide variety of users as long as they are in the specified limits of the toy. Outside that it might work, but it might not.

The large back strap will be a bit of a controversial point. It provides a lot of good support, but it is larger than other harnesses. My girlfriend personally prefers out Aslan Jaguar harness a bit, just because it is slimmer. However we tend to use dildos that are quite small and do not have a lot of weight. It you had a heavier dildo that large back strap might help keep the harness a lot. Really you are trading off size for support and that will be a personal decision.
    • Adjustable
    • Fits comfortably
    • Will fit most body sizes and types

Performance

Overall this toy performed quite well. The fit was good, it as comfortable, and it help the dildo well. Just make sure you are using a dildo with a flared base that is meant to be used with an O-ring harness. Overall we got this toy for strap-on sex and it worked for strap on sex.

The harness was comfortable. Our sessions tend to be around 20 minutes and during that time my girlfriend had no major complaints. The first time or two the harness is a bit stiff and a bit more uncomfortable, but once you wear it a bit and condition it once then it should become more supple and easy to use.

The toy is very easy to adjust. The buckles are easy to use and there were no problems with it. To put on a harness we always leave the leg straps adjusted where they need to be. And one side of the waist is undone. Then the harness is slipped upwards and that side is done up. This is very easy to do and takes less than minute to put on.

Securing toys into this harness was quite easy. We just throw the toy in just before putting on the harness and this works quite well. If you have lots of adjustment you can also loosen the harness a bit and then throw the toy in. Overall it was easy to insert a dildo into the toy. The harness held the toys quite well. Again I like the fact it comes with two O-rings. This allows you to get a tighter fit on the toys and secure them better.

We used this to for cowboy (so me riding her on top), doggy, and missionary. And it worked well for all of these positions. The one thing this harness does not work well is penetrating her. Because of the low rise this harness covers the wearer's genitals a bit. So if you want an easy transition from her having sex with you, to you having sex with her it takes a minute to remove the harness. It is also harder to stimulate her, but the plus side is the harness tends to do that quite well. We found this harness to be compatible with the Fun Factory Share. So double ended dildos might work with this harness and you.
    • Comfortable during use
    • Easy to put on
    • Holds toys very well

Care and Maintenance

This toy is made out of leather, so it does require more care than other toys. After you use the harness, you should wipe it down with a damp soapy cloth. Do not do this on the suede side though. Just gently wipe that side with a dry cloth. I would recommend either glycerin saddle soap or dish soap to use as the soap. After you wipe it down, you should dry off any excess moisture and let it dry completely before storing it. It should be stored in a place with at least a little airflow. I store mine in a plastic container under my bed and it works fine. Because it is leather, it can dry out over time. So, it is best to condition your harness once every 1 to 3 months. Again this only applies to the patent leather side. This will depend slightly on your climate. Overall, a leather harness is going to take more work than other harnesses, but it will also last longer. I think the care is well worth it. Also, you never want to completely submerge your harness as that will damage it. To extend the life on the rivets of the harness you can actually just use a clear nail polish to protect them from oxygen and oxidizing.
    • Easy to clean
    • Hard to clean
    • High maintenance

Packaging

This toy came with no packaging. It came with a small tag that says stockroom on it, but nothing else. It was just a plain harness in the bag. I do no really think it needs any packaging. The toy holds up fine to the box and it is pretty self explanatory to use.

    You asked on my review if the color is more blue than purple. The harness is quite purple. The blue-ish color is just because of the lighting and the fact its on a cell-phone camera. The picture of the product accurately shows its true color.
