RodeoH Fans!

This is a very comfortable, easy to use alternative to traditional strap on harnesses! At it's very affordable price, this is a great option for beginners to strap-on play who want a comfortable, high quality harness that's not at all intimidating and very easy to use! For veterans, you may find yourself ready to toss your traditional leather strap jock or g-style harnesses, or at least pack them away because this harness functions at least as well without the mood-breaking strap fumbling.

Use

This is a super comfortable, sexy strap-on harness that's simple, easy and convenient to use. It's a great option for beginners and advanced users alike. As is true with most harnesses, it's designed to fit an anatomical female but should work fine whether being used in lesbian sex or straight pegging sex and could be an excellent option for transmen for packing and play. I assume there are also uses biological men could find for such a product. It fits well under clothing and is extra comfortable even for extended periods of time. It accommodates any flared base dildo up to 2" in diameter and even has some extra bonus features. The design is very unisex with a tend toward the masculine tempered slightly by the low rise cut, making it ideal for butch women and transmen without alienating the girly girls. I, personally, prefer the style of my lace RodeoH Panty Harness (see my review on that item HERE, but this harness is actually my girlfriend's harness and she loves it, and I love it on her!

Material

The material is a slightly heavy cottony stretch fabric with a wide, tummy flattering elastic waistband. The fabric is very soft to the touch, just a bit thicker than most underwear. It smells about like most fabrics, nothing especially noticeable. I wouldn't recommend using this in the shower/bath/pool since the fabric is likely to become water logged and less stable when wet, though a little moisture doesn't affect it. Moisture from lube and natural sex fluids seems to have no real effect. There is a firm o-ring sewn into the material in the front, not just a cut out in the material, which lends to the stability of the harness.

Design / Craftsmanship

This harness is shaped like a pair of men's brief underwear with a low rise waist. The center panel features the built-in permanent o-ring to hold a dildo. The waist band is wide and flat with the Rodeoh name in very subtle, grey block lettering. I can't find a single flaw with the craftsmanship. The stitching is all solid and good quality.
There is a black panel behind the o-ring. I believe this panel is flexible enough to accomodate a strapless (Feeldoe, Share, etc) strap-on dildo but I haven't tried it.



The o-ring is 2" and is not interchangeable. My 1 1/4" diameter Tantus Acute dildo fits just fine with a little wiggle room but not enough to greatly affect stability. My girlfriend's larger Tantus O2 Mark, at 1 1/2" diameter, fits a little more snuggly. The thicker base on the Mark adds a bit more stability. Overall, we prefer the O2 Mark over the Acute with this harness. We also own a Tantus Pack 'N Play 2, which is more play than pack, really, and is very similar to the 02 Mark, just more flexible but very similar in size and we love this dildo in the harness as well.



Because it's fabric, there is some give to this harness, especially when withdrawing. If your partner is tight or is using their muscles to squeeze the toy, the material will tend to give so the dildo doesn't pull back with you quite as well. This leads to decreased pressure on the wearer's clitoris and decreased feeling. See more in the "experience" section on this.

The interior panel behind the o-ring translates into a pocket which I tried to show in the above photos that extends below the o-ring to the seam in the crotch. This panel is PERFECT to fit a clitoral vibrator. See the "performance" section for more on this.



This harness not only looks like underwear, it can be worn as underwear! My girlfriend will sometimes wear this harness when we go out if we're anticipating using it later when we get home. It makes it easy to get right down to business. The design of this harness makes it easy to put the harness on and then put the dildo in it, in contrast to traditional strap harnesses that usually don't offer enough stretch to allow the dildo to be added once the harness is in place and adjusted. This also means that, in addition to being able to wear it under clothes, she can put it on in the beginning of a session before or during foreplay and add the dildo when the time comes so the dildo isn't in the way until we want it to be. This is less of a mood break for us. Plus there's no straps flopping around or getting caught or tangled.

Size / Fit

This harness fits my girlfriend perfectly. The wide, flat elastic waistband is very tummy flattering and is very comfortable.



The cut is also very comfortable. The variety of sizes available should mean that most body types can find a size that will suit their needs and be comfortable. It runs very true to size and shouldn't require ordering up or down in size. It is not adjustable so it won't work for sharing unless you happen to be exactly the same size as your partner. My girlfriend and I are very similar in size and can't share.
As mentioned above, it works great under clothing. My girlfriend says this harness is actually more comfortable than most of her underwear. She loves it so much, she wishes she could find underwear that are the exact same cut and size.



The cut of this harness is slightly different from my lace RodeoH panty harness. The panty has a slightly more femm-y cut with a little lower waistband and a bit more feminine cut to the leg opening. While I'd still say the brief is "low rise" it sits slightly higher on the hips and the leg opening isn't cut quite as high.

    • Fits comfortably

Performance

As I mentioned in the design section, a clitoral vibrator fits perfectly in the little pocket created by the backing panel behind the o-ring. We have a Mimi 2 which fits perfectly. We use it with the buttons facing down so the vibrations are more concentrated on my clit and also cause the base of the dildo to vibrate which then stimulates the receiving partner too.



When worn, the pocket holds Mimi very comfortably and doesn't move around too much or slip. I was worried that it would push the dildo out too much but instead it actually seems to add stability and isn't uncomfortable or too snug at all.



The harness does have slightly more give than a traditional style which means the dildo will pull slightly away from the wearer during withdrawal, especially if the receiving partner is tightening their muscles or is naturally retentive. Because the anus is typically more retentive than the vagina, those using it for anal sex or pegging may have more of an issue with this. For us, this really doesn't pose too much of an issue. It decreases pressure of the base of the dildo against the wearer's clitoris slightly but the vibrator in the pocket helps minimize this effect. Lube also helps reduce drag which also minimizes the problem.

Care and Maintenance

The harness comes with a black drawstring pouch, suitable for storage and travel.
Cleaning is pretty simple. It can be run through the washing machine. I'd recommend gentle detergent and a gentle cycle. A lingerie bag might be a good idea. Hand washing is also an option. It's recommended that you hang it to dry. I have kitty cats that fur all over everything so I have to lint roll after it dries. Like any cloth this won't last forever but, according to RodeoH, good care will extend it's life.

Packaging

The harness comes wrapped in cellophane inside the cloth pouch. The pouch has some limited information on it about the harness.
The harness also comes with the dog tag with the Rodeoh logo on it.

Experience

We simply LOVE this harness. Between this and my RodeoH lace panty harness, I'm not sure either of us will ever go back to a traditional strap style ever again. True, the versatility is minimized with this design but the sexiness, the comfort, the ease of use, the pocket for the vibrator, all MORE than make up for this fact. Frankly, I've always been a little funny about sharing my harnesses. Weird, when you think about it, since my partner and I share our dildos and vibes all the time, but harnesses have always felt more like underwear, and we don't wear each other's undies. (Unless it's, like, a laundry emergency or something!) So we aren't too perturbed by the fact that we can't both wear the same harness in this case. The "butchier" styling of this one is perfect for my girlfriend while the lace panty style is much more my speed! Prior to using a vibe in our respective RodeoH harnesses, neither of us has ever had an orgasm from topping with a strap on but this feature has allowed both of us to do so which is very hot!
The brief style of the harness is way less bulky than strap-style harnesses which allows for a more close, intimate experience. It also makes the whole process of strap-on sex a lot sexier since you don't have to take time to adjust straps and fumble with buckles which always slightly kills the mood.
We used this harness first with a Tantus Acute dildo. Then we tried with our Tantus 02 Mark and the very similar sized and shaped, slightly squishier, Tantus Pack 'N Play 2. The Acute has a much smaller, thinner base which makes it a bit less stable. The smaller diameter of the Acute also makes it a bit wobbly. It's by no means unworkable though and I probably wouldn't have any complaints at all with the Acute in this harness except that the Mark and the Pack 'N Play 2 are so much better. The bases on the latter two are thicker and wider and the diameter is bigger which makes it much more stable.
The harness worked equally well with MiMi in the pocket and without it. It was very comfortable either way.
When withdrawing, if there is drag or the bottoming partner is holding on to the toy with their muscles, the base of the dildo pulls away from the wearers body because the material has a good amount of give to it. This isn't really too much of an issue and doesn't seem to cause problems in use. When first using this harness though, it feels a little strange compared to traditional style harnesses that hold the dildo very firmly against the wearer's body. For those that like constant contact of the base of the dildo, this harness might not work for you. For me, it didn't really affect the vibrator in the pocket, so it didn't detract from the stimulation I was getting.
I would highly recommend this harness to anyone looking for a comfortable, easy to use, sexy strap on harness give this or one of the other RodeoH's a try!
