The Myth of the Strapless Strap-On

The Myth of the Strapless Strap-On

When I first ventured into the land of lady-on-lady loving I was enamored with the idea of a strapless strap-on. No obnoxious straps. No lost parts. Just yummy direct skin-on-skin contact, mutual penetration and toe curling clitoral friction! What else could a young lesbo dream of?

If you have never seen one of these bad boys, head to a sex shop and give them a look. There are two models that you are likely to find; the Feeldoe and a model by Fun Factory. By inserting and clenching the “the short, curved bulb…into the vagina” Fun Factory says that you will have an “unbeatable sexual experience” completely free of messy straps. If you have ever played with a normal strap-on, you know how difficult it can be; complicated twisted straps make it difficult to get on, clasps suddenly give way moments before orgasm and if your angles aren’t just right that dildo flops around all over the place.

For years, I have dreamt of endless nights of fucking with one of these god-sends. Finally, several penetration-weary partners later, I got my chance! After going heavy on the foreplay and free flowing with lube it was time for the main event.

How dare they call this monstrosity a ‘bulb’! A bulb sounds like the beginnings of a delicate blossom; something tiny and shaped like a sperm. But ohhh no, that is not what it was. Attempting to insert this enormous strangely shaped beach ball into my lady flower felt like I was playing an aggressive game of Tetris with machetes.

Just fuck me alreadyNo pain, no gain- on we go! After thanking the all mighty Sapphic god that my babymaker didn’t rip while getting this thing in, and grateful that my cries of pain hadn’t killed the mood too much, the tapered edge initially kept it comfortably in place while beginning to get our groove on. I must admit that there is nothing more satisfying that playing with this toy. If you are on the receiving end, feeling the tender skin of your lover so close to you and hearing their sighs of her pleasure is incredible. As a giver it is AMAZING! ...for about 30 seconds. With every thrust you get a triple shot of pleasure; the moans of your lover, the contact with your clit and perfect aim right to your g-spot. With that much going on, the moisture level amplifies incredibly… and thus comes the searing pain. Regardless of how hard you try to clench your PVCs, you are going to get dangerously wet and this thing is going to slip out. It hurts going in and boy does it hurts falling out. Worse, noticing that you are slowly losing grasp of this toy as your lover’s cries become sharper and shorter is a tragedy all on its own.

I’ve taken a general poll and it seems that most women I know either gave up on this toy, use it with a harness, or sport a snug fitting pair of underwear to support it. Tragically, I must dispel the myth of the strapless strap-on. Nevertheless, I would strongly recommend you give this toy a try: just with a harness.

    If you happen to have a love for all things pop culture and were thinking of going to the San Diego Comic-con, think again. We at IX Daily hate to break it to you, but the San Diego Comic-con’s dead; the Montreal con, which was held at the Palais des Congres from the 12th until the 14th of September, is the new place to be.  Actually, you’re better off attending any of the smaller conventions, to be more exact. Although the San Diego Comic-con’s one of the biggest comic and pop...

    Having previously joined forces on the massive “40 Cows” last summer, Habstrakt & Megalodon combine talents once again, this time on a new four track EP titled “The Storm”. Released via Never Say Die, home to SKisM and Zomboy, it's an exploration in serious bass weight. “Yabba Dabs” sets things off with syncopated rhythms and dipping bass, extra points for guessing the voice behind the vocal sample too. Title track “The Storm” incorporates big snares and womping lead bass while “Riddim 101...

    This past weekend was Montreal Psych Fest and I couldn't have been more happy to have gotten the chance to go. Osheaga is great and all but sometimes it's nice to be able to see a band without risking suffocation. You could tell most of the people in attendance were familiar with one another, happy to be celebrating another year of Psych Fest. Everyone at the event was clearly out to have a good time and just enjoy the music, no need for bullshit or putting up a front. A redeeming quality...

    Ahhhh... INSTAGRAM! The lovely kryptonite of our beautiful faces and coffee orders; our raison d'être. It is not a capital secret we looove taking photos and uploading them to this app and show the world our creative side. Well, it seems taking photos of almost everything we do has paid off, since now hundreds of Instagram photos have been put together to create a short film by artist Thomas Jullien. Thomas Jullien used over 800 photographs from different users to create a flawless...

    Leave it to Marc Jacobs to take the normcore trend to the next level. His show at NYFW (New York Fashion Week), held yesterday, left beauty editors everywhere speechless when he unveiled his runway look. No make-up, not one drop. “Only moisturizing lotion and that’s it,” said Francois Nars, the head make-up artist for the show. When someone asked if they would blot out under-eye circles, Nars said, “No, we love the under-eye circles!” The models’ skin was left completely bare, however; they...

    Some generations are known for their hip music, crazy hairdoes, or their anarchist ideologies; our generation will be known for giving Justin Bieber a microphone (and an ego) and the selfie T-shirt.  Yes... You read that correctly; it seems our narcissistic, technology obsessed generation lacks in poets what it lacks in humbleness. I mean, the concept of a Selfie-Shirt (created by designer Timur Kim) clearly stemmed from a cultural/societal tendency of self-absorbed 20 somethings....

    Never Say Die sub-label, No Tomorrow Recordings, have been on quite a run this past half of the year. With releases from some of their signature artists as well as an introduction to a few fresh faces, they now return with the first EP of the month from Trumpdisco. Being the first installment of more to come, the THIRD EP is (go figure) a three-track structure of electro house patterns and addictive rhythms. It’s available via Beatport now, so be sure to grab your copy today. Stream the entire...

    I'm a firm believer that style is more than just the clothes you wear; it's how you carry it. And thanks to our image obsessed, selfie crazed world how you pose in front the camera is now an art form. From Duck Face, to Planking and Gang Signs, rocking 'Rap Squats' is a trend on the rise. While the definitive anatomy of the Rap Squat is highly contested; simply put it is a squat pose in front of a camera (or with hopes of being captured on camera) to imply you are 'Hard AF', 'Thug' or a '...
