Is Sophie Riding Red Riding Hood? Food For Thought

If you worry that most products like this are a one size fits "most", fear not as the harness fits the bigger sized person. I highly recommend this to just about anyone: beginners (like me) harness-wise, intermediates, and experienced alike.
This is great in all aspects.
None at this moment.
Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review


This is Sophia's Red Rider Harness and dildo set, useful if you're planning on sharing the evening with a third or fourth play partner, or even if it's just the two of you wanting a night made for exploration. It can be used both vaginally and anally, but if you choose to switch areas you need to wear a condom on it, as well as when you're sharing the pleasure with other players. It's great for girl on girl, girl on guy, and adds excitement to the bedroom.

The dildo is made of a lightweight material called PVC. It's water resistant, and demands very little care. It's easily washed with antibacterial soap and hot water, or you can use a toy cleaner or it. The harness can be cleaned the same way, being made from Neoprene and Nylon. It has no taste but has an extremely strong smell; the first time I smelled it right out of the box it gagged me because it was so strong. I will be setting the dong out for another sniff at a later date and it will go on the follow-up review.
    • Mixed materials

Design / Craftsmanship

The straps on the harness have one going completely around your hips, with two more hanging down and attaching to the sides of the harness so you can step right into it. It has four plastic buckles so you can shorten or lengthen it for your comfort. It has padding in the front where you insert the dong, for comfort for the wearer. It can easily be used by anyone: beginner, intermediate, and advanced users alike. The O-ring that holds the dildo in place is a permanent fixture.

It has a small slit in the top of the harness for you to put a bullet vibrator (not included) for extra stimulation.

I'm glad that I chose this as my first strap-on, with its comfort and the ease to put on and use. I believe the harness will last a very long time. I think I'll be replacing the dildo before the harness.
    • Fits many size toys

Size / Fit

When inserting the dong in its O-ring, the flare that it has on its base fits rather snugly. The O-ring size is 1 3/4" thick so anything with a base end of the 1 3/4" size will fit in the harness.

I have 44" hips and the harness fits wonderfully and it has buckles to tighten or loosen it up. It's basically one size fits a whole lot of people, which I really like. It fits up to a size 52" in the hips, and has a light weight of only 1 pound, which the dong is most of.

The dong is a really nice 7" in length, with the head on the dildo measuring 3" around, and the base of it that rests on the O-ring is 4".
    • Adjustable


I bought this at 30% off for the simple fact that my main Dom wanted to play with another, and he wanted to watch for a little bit. So I threw a condom on and gave her what she assured us that she wanted. Come to find out she's wasn't as much of a sexplorer as she let on (disappointment). The strap-on harness was easy for me to get both on and off using its buckle straps, the dildo was simple for me to insert behind the O-ring, and the slit for the vibrator holds it in place perfectly, but I had to place the bullet in the slit before I put the harness on. Everything did wonderfully and I honestly couldn't have asked for a better set up.
    • Bulky
    • Difficult to put on

Care and Maintenance

It's made with 3 different types of materials: PVC, Nylon, and Neoprene. The cleaning for the three is all the same; antibacterial soap and hot water. Always use a condom with this product if you're planning on sharing or if you're using the dildo anally because of the germs that can attach to it, and always clean it after each use.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store


I received the package the other day while I was at work. Receiving a call that it had indeed come in, I took my lunch break went home to admire this new oddity to my collection (as I've never seen one close up). I was upset and confused at the initial inspection. The brown packaging was crushed and cut open, and whoever did it tried to re-close it using clear tape. After the confusion as to why I would receive something in that state of disarray, I checked the box within, which I found open (of course). Upon calling EF about it the woman explained that sometimes their alarm gets set off by something, which is understandable, like the O-ring being made of metal. I checked closer on the objects being held within, and they had not been tampered with; the seals were still sealed nice and tight. The lady that I spoke with was very helpful when I described the disarray of the shipment, and even offered for me to return it. It's been checked by two people and we both came to the same conclusion that neither the harness nor the dildo had been molested in any way.

Getting to the box, it's not discreet at all since it's showing the model with the harness on, but you can keep it to store the harness set in, over and over again.
    • Good for storage
    • Not discreet

Personal comments

I'm just tickled pink with its purchase.


It was awkward at first trying to get the harness on but I got use to it, and now it's one of my favorite toys.
Follow-up commentary
The more I use my strap-on, the better that I like it. At first it was awkward with me never having used one before. I got the hang of it, and I've used it on both male and female with a condom over my cock. There are no obvious signs of breakage. I just wash the black cloth part with a damp rag since it can't be put into the washing machine due to the metal on it. I'm very pleased that I received this as a review product and would recommend this to anyone.
