The New Innovation in Sensual Play? No, it is NOT!

The Palma Harness may be "revolutionary" and "innovative", but practical and convenient it is not. Bottom line, this harness is far more complicated and difficult than it needs to be. This harness was built so that you wouldn't have to hold the dildo to please your partner, but why wouldn't you? Unfortunately, this harness will leave you feeling confused, frustrated, and just plain ol' silly. You are better off buying a traditional strap-on harness that is meant for the CROTCH, not the hand.

Pros:
Awesome bullet vibes.
Cons:
Too complicated, you have to buy it based on size and if you are right or left handed.

Use

Proclaimed as "a new innovation in sensual play," the "revolutionary" Palma Harness is indeed a unique harness that takes the usual strap-on harness into a whole different arena, or, literally, a whole other part of the human anatomy: the hand! It can be used solo or with a partner, for both males and females, and can be usable with or without a toy.

Material

The Palma Harness is made of spandex and polyester. Overall it feels soft and smooth, but rather thick, so at times when worn it feels as if you are wearing a spandex/polyester glove. The material itself can be waterproof, but if you are using a vibrator with this toy that isn't waterproof compatible, I wouldn't really recommend it.

Design / Craftsmanship

Now, I will be honest, the idea of this harness is pretty neat, but unfortunately, it isn't practical nor is it convenient. When I first took the harness out of the box, I really had no idea what to do with it. It comes with a storage pouch, which looked cute and convenient enough, and then when I opened it, inside contained a strap to attach to the buckles on the side, two bullet vibes (with batteries included), the harness itself, and 3 O-ring adjustment pads that are meant for whichever dildo/vibrator/butt plug you are planning to use with it. There is an instruction tag that illustrates how to put on the glove, but it was so confusing and, to be blunt, was poorly done. Step 1, 2, and 3 showed how to clean the harness (I'm not sure how or why that is necessary BEFORE you even use it), and then step 4, 5, and 6 displays how to put it on. Neither step was helpful. It would have been nice if they had WRITTEN instructions, but for some reason they could only make do with the poorly drawn illustrations. The harness itself, I thought looked interesting, but again I was awfully confused. Why are there so many buttons and velco straps? Was it necessary? No it was not. They aren't even used for adjustment, just for show. The harness can only fit on my right hand. I thought the fit was nice and secure (I had a size Medium/Large), but at times I felt like it was too big on me. I inserted the bullet vibes into the two little pockets that rest at the palm of the hand. I thought the bullet vibes are well placed, directly into the palm, where much arousal can happen when rubbing it along the pleasure areas.

The attachable O-ring attachments, I thought, were quite useless and rather unnecessary. Initially I thought that these attachments varied in shape and size, so to make it compatible with dildos of any shape and size, but all of them were the same. I didn't know how to place them in the harness (they didn't illustrate how that is done); after many times trying to figure it out, I gave up and just slipped the dildo into O-ring center in the harness. It was compatible with some of my smaller sized wide-based dildos and butt plugs, but not so well with some of my larger and meatier strap on toys.

Size / Fit

The harness come in three sizes XS/S, M/L, and XL. I have a pretty small hand; I would have been better off with a size XS/S, but the harness fit on me OKAY with a size M/L. When buying this harness, be sure that you are buying the proper size for your hand. You also have to keep in mind to buy a harness that is for the right-handed or the left-handed. It's a shame, though, that it couldn't be a "one-size-fits-most" harness, so to not confuse or baffle the buyer if they discover that it doesn't fit them.

Performance

With such high hopes and anticipation, I was rather disappointed in the performance of this harness. I would NOT recommend trying to use this harness in the heat of the moment. It does take some time in putting it on properly, making sure that the right dildo fits into the O-ring center, and also making sure the bullets are properly in place and that you press the right buttons to turn them on. Taking it off was just as much of a hassle. Again, I really hate that there is so much going on with this harness, with all the buttons and velcro.

Some time was lost in between trying to put on this thing when I could have just simply used another strap on harness, or, better yet, just use my own two hands to fuck myself (or my partner) with my dildo. I didn't mind so much using the harness without a toy, when only the bullet vibes were buzzing and vibrating away; it felt really arousing to rub and glide it along my breasts, my thighs, my pussy, and my clit...and my partner also enjoyed the sensation of the bullet vibes through the harness. The power of the vibration made the entire harness vibrate. The vibration was quite strong and powerful, and had a soft white noise sound to it. I would say that if anything, the bullet vibes are the only excellent accessories to this rather confusing harness.

Once I started attaching my wide-based dildo onto it, and had my partner use it on me, that was when things became...awkward. It just didn't feel natural or comfortable. I sat on the dildo as if his hand were a seat, and bounced up and down on it, with his hand thrusting up and down to the pace of my fucking, but it was neither arousing or sexy. We also tried it with me being in the doggy style position and missionary, and there he thrust the dildo in and out of me with the harness, but again, we just couldn't get into it. It made us laugh. We said to ourselves, "Who actually uses a dildo like this? And why?" We felt that it was easier to HOLD the dildo instead of having it in a harness such as this. For nice, slow, fucking, the dildo was held in place just fine, but when we tried to make it rough and hard, the dildo started to become flimsy in the harness.

After awhile, using this harness became uncomfortable for him as well as he was trying to figure out how to use and maneuver the dildo in the harness. Ultimately, it was quite frustrating. The idea of this harness, I suppose, is "innovative" but in actual use and practice, it was a pain in the ass and made for an interesting, but terribly awkward, experience. The experience was so awkward in fact that we decided to toss the harness to the side and use the dildo the normal way, as it should be intended, either in our own two hands or on a traditional strap-on harness!

Care and Maintenance

The harness is HAND-WASHABLE ONLY. Just wash it down with soap and water, and let it air dry. The harness can be stored in the pouch it comes it.

    A lot of people prefer to clean their items before use. Sorry this didn't work out though. I'd still like to try it.

    Great review! I simply don't see the value or need of this one and too complicated. I own a Spare Parts jock harness which is great so why not use that harness for more ease, comfort and pleasure?
    From reading your review, I can picture your partners hand going numb!

    Great review. The only thing I could see this harness helpful for is for people with disabilities who can't easily hold things. Maybe they should market it like this.

    It does appear awkward to put a dildo or vibrator into a harness when your hand works properly and well.
