One Heck of a Strap-on

This is an awesome toy for many kinds of couples. It has strong vibrations and a perfect curve for G-spot or P-spot action. It has an easy-to-use remote to find a vibration or pattern you and your lover with both love. The major downfall to this toy is the tiny leg straps. I suggest measuring your thighs before ordering.

Use

The Love Rider Strap-on is one heck of an invention. It comes with a dual sided vibrator attached to the harness straps. I consider this a dual sided vibrator because the shaft vibrates as well as the bumpy surfaced base, which is rounded outward to stimulate the wearer's clitoris. This strap-on has a corded remote that controls the vibrations and patterns.

The attached vibrator cannot be removed from the harness. In order to remove it, you would have to cut off the straps, which would damage the toy's integrity and lovely looks.

Material / Texture

The vibrator and the attached straps are made of silicone. Silicone has a rank of 10 on the Eden safety scale because it is nonporous, lacks phthalates, and also for its ability to repel dirt and bacteria. For those of you with skin allergies, this toy is also latex free and hypoallergenic. As a general rule, silicone toys should only be used with water based lubricants.

The shaft of the vibrator does have a bit of squish to it, but for the most part it is solid. I would not describe this toy as being sticky, but it does have a bit of drag and manages to pick up hair and dust if left out in the open.

The straps, also made of silicone, are somewhat stretchy. There are plastic pieces attached that hold the ends of the silicone straps together and allow those straps to be adjusted for better sizing.
    • No odor
    • Not porous at all
    • Smooth

Design / Shape / Size

The attached vibrator is 7 1/2" long, but 1 1/4" of that is a clitoral vibrator for the wearer's pleasure. The person being penetrated only gets to enjoy 5 3/4" of this toy. The clitoral portion for the wearer has six rows of seven nubs on it, for as much vibration as possible. These nubs are each around 1/4" long. The shaft was given equal attention for its design. It is 4 1/2" around and has two curving upraised lines. This shaft is awesome for G-spot action since it does have a slight curve at the tip.

This toy has two straps: one on each side for your legs, and then one strap to go around your waist, all made of the same silicone as the toy. At its absolute widest, without the ends being pulled through, the waist is 44". While that will fit many waists, the thigh straps are much smaller. They are 19" each, and I highly recommend measuring yours before ordering.

This toy has a very effective G-spot curve, but only in the missionary position. I found that this curve was uncomfortable for the person receiving the penetrative portion of this toy in other positions. If missionary is your and your lover's favorite position, I see this being great for you.

Another thing I should mention is the length of the cord, which is exactly 20". This should give any person wearing it enough room to use their hands while making love, while still enabling them them to control their lovemaking experience. This lengthy cord also enables the person being penetrated to control the vibrations, should the couple so choose.

Functions / Performance / Controls

This toy is operated by a 3"x1 3/4"x1 1/4" wired controller. The back panel of this controller slides open to reveal the battery lodge that will hold your 2 AAA batteries. The front side of this controller has two buttons. The bottom button is the power button, and it is clearly labeled with the power button symbol you see on everything from cellphones to the Wii remote. It is a circle with a line jutting in the top of it. Above this button, you see three black dots leading to another button. These dots light up red when turned on, and light up in sequence with the pattern the toy is set on. This upper button has a picture of a squiggle on it, and it cycles you through the settings. At any point, should you want to turn the toy off, you can simply push the power button. When turning it back on, it does not save the setting you were on.

When you first turn the power on, it is on the first of three, incrementally growing stronger, steady vibrations. Pressing the waves button turns it up, and leads you to the fourth setting. The fourth setting is a pulse of high vibration, then nothing, and is very rapid. The fifth setting makes a noise like you would hear as a space ship was landing. It's a pulse that gradually grows stronger and stronger until it starts over again. In words, it goes up and down, while still increasing. It's a very intense setting, if I do say so myself. The sixth setting is another pulse. It has a 1 second burst of high vibration followed by a brief pause. The seventh and final setting is a pulse that goes, 1, 2, 3, fooour. Four bursts of vibration, with the fourth being drawn out. It then cycles back through.

The vibrations carry well throughout the shaft, all the way to the tip. The strongest vibrations, however, can be found on the wearers end in the clitoral hub.
    • Easy to use
    • Lots of variety in function
    • Strong patterns

Care and Maintenance

Cleaning of the Love Rider is fairly simple since it is made of silicone. Contrary to the Eden material page for silicone, it would be a very bad idea to boil this toy. While this toy is waterproof, the heat from boiling may harm the internal mechanisms for this toy. To clean Love Rider, use warm water and antibacterial soap, or a toy sanitizing spray or wipe.

Storage is pretty easy as well. It does seem to attract hair and dust, but not nearly as much as a jelly or TPR toy would. Whatever you do, keep it separated from other silicone toys, for silicone toys should never be stored side by side. You can leave it in its packaging, but that's not exactly discreet. I recommend either purchasing a storage pouch from Eden or buying a large zip lock bag to store it in.

Packaging

The packaging of this toy is far less than discreet, with a clear, partial mannequin wearing the strap-on on both the front and rear of the box. While this mannequin is just from the neck to the mid way of the thigh on the human body, it is clearly understandable as to what is inside. The left side of the box tells you in five languages the major perks of the toy. The right side panel gives you contact information for California Exotics. This box is recyclable and should be set out as such should you choose to toss it.

Inside this box, your new strap-on is wrapped in a thin, styrafoam-like bag. The controller's cord comes neatly wrapped up with a little tie. Batteries do not come included.
    • Good for storage
    • Recyclable
