It has been wonderful having so many guests writing the introductions for the last few prompts and this one is no exception, however she didn’t volunteer, I asked her. Strap-on’s has been on my list for ages but it is not something I feel very confident about and so I decided to ask someone with a lot more knowledge on the subject than me to write the introduction. To say Ruby Goodnight delivered perfectly is a huge understatement!

Like many other aspects of sex, the buildup for strap-on play is as delicious as the act itself. The metal-against-leather sound the harness makes as it’s removed from the toy chest. The slow delight of watching your lover slipping it on and buckling it up. The firm tug against the fabric as you test the give of material against the dildo. Admiring yourself in the mirror, your new appendage standing proud. Leaning over, lubing up, and slipping in for that first plunge into pleasure.

For many, strap-on sex is about transformation and pushing boundaries. You’re creating a part of yourself that was not there before. It may be an introduction into the taboo, a taste of a forbidden pleasure that you’ve finally allowed yourself to have. It can also provide opportunities for penis-havers with erectile dysfunction to once again penetrate their lovers in ways they may have thought long gone. Blurring the lines between the masculine and the feminine, giving and receiving, control and release – it all can come into focus for strap-on play.

For others, it’s as routine as washing the dishes and walking the dog – it’s just another form of penetration, after all. Or is it?

This week’s Kink of the Week is about strap-on play. We’re looking for your experiences, fantasies and philosophies. Are strap-ons part of your everyday sex, or something you wish that was? Do strap-ons make the wearer masculine? The receiver feminine? Are you a strap-on ‘switch’ or do you stick to the giving or receiving side? Pick up your favorite bottle of lube and let’s slide into this week’s Kink of the Week – strap-on sex.


*Don’t forget Kink of the Week is not just about personal experiences and tales, you can also share you fiction here too. So why not pen me a dirty ditty, a torrid tale, or a steamy story around the current topic.*
