All Things Pegging & Strap-Ons: What You Need To Get Started

All Things Pegging & Strap-Ons: What You Need To Get Started

As a society, people are more accepting of things now than ever before, and with this, people feel more comfortable in trying new things so lets talk about All Things Pegging. Pegging has been around forever, with references of the act being described as early as 1795, but the term pegging was coined in 2001 by Dan Savage, beating out names like BOBing and PUNTing, which to be fair, would have probably made this article a little funnier.

Since the inception of the name, pegging has been portrayed in porn, movies, books, and countless other forms of media, and has since become something more people are trying each year. For some, however, taking that first foray into the world of pegging is daunting, being faced with countless brightly coloured and heavily strapped options, all of which look very similar. In this article, expect to be guided into the world of pegging and strap-ons, and explore your sexuality in ways that will change your sex life for the better.

*Please Note* Anyone can use a strap-on, and anyone can be on the receiving end of a strap-on. Pegging implies the recipient is someone who identifies as a man, but regardless of who you plan on enjoying this toy with, this article will help welcome you into the world of strap-ons.

Getting Started:

Before we even get to strap-ons and harnesses, especially if you’re using this toy analy, there needs to be an introduction to toys. There are plenty of articles on this very site about toys to get started, including this one I wrote about good quality but low cost toys. Check it out, and then get back here to continue your journey into the world of pegging & strap-ons.

Okay! Dealt with? You’ve had your foray into toys? Cool! Let’s get into it.

Starter Kits:

As with many things in a sex shop, there’s levels of toys that reflect experience with said toy. Pegging is no different. With plenty of starter kits to choose from, even this first step can be daunting for some. After some deliberation, the Doc Johnson ‘Pegging Kit’ ($250~) from Adult Shops is a great first step to take. It comes with the Vac-U-Lock harness, which is compatible with countless attachable dongs, 3 lengths (and girths) of included dildos, cleaner, powder, and lube, so just about everything you need. It’s essentially a 3-in-1 kit, that also works as a slow build to possibly larger and more intricate toys. It’s made from Premium Silicone, so it’s gonna be a softer feel, but most of the time, especially for a rookie, that’s a good thing.

Something to note about strap-ons is that most dildos that have a base are compatible with most harnesses, so realistically, a harness is the most important piece here. This kit fills this need perfectly. With 3 different sized O-Rings to fit any size attachment, this set is a great foundation for anything you can imagine when it comes to strap-ons. There are plenty of other harnesses, but I will stand by the Doc Johnson until something blows me away as much as this one did.

The Next Step:

Once you’ve tried out the starter kits, and you and your partner feel comfortable taking more steps into the ever-interesting world of strap-ons & pegging, venture to your local sex shop, and have a browse at some dildos and dongs with bases, and find something you’ll enjoy! This part is the most subjective, but here are some recommendations to spice things up!

Fun Factory Pop!

This one’s pretty funky. To take a step into the uber-realism world, this toy is wonderful. Made from Fun Factory’s medical grade silicone, and coming in multiple colours, the Pop! Has a bulb & hose attached to the base of the dong that can be filled with fake ejaculate. It’s as fun as it sounds, and can greatly enhance the realism of the whole experience. You can buy plenty of fake cum on your favourite sex-shop sites, or make your own! It’s usually a few ingredients you should already have, so make a night of it! Make dinner, make cum, eat dinner, have fun!

LoveHoney UPRIZE

I’ve already written about the wonders of the LoveHoney UPRIZE, so here’s a snippet from the article “The New Wave of Vibrators; and Why They’re What You Need”:

“Are you the kind of person who watches porn for the plot? Do you like a little build up before you get down to business? The Lovehoney UPRIZE is the toy for you. Similar to the Stronic, I was dumbfounded upon my first viewing of this toy. The tester was out of charge, but when I found the time, and after only 20 minutes of charging, I was amazed. The UPRIZE is a remote-control vibrating erecting toy.

Yep. At the press of a button, this very realistic looking dong goes from “rough day” to standing at attention. Coming in (ha) at two sizes, 6 inches and 8 inches, and a pretty impressive girth, this toy is no small (ha) feat to get going. For those turned on by turning someone on, first off, you’re the best kind of person, but secondly, this toy will blow your mind.”

It fits perfectly in a harness, and can really enhance the experience for transfolk and others alike. It’s a great piece of innovation, and has to be seen to be believed, so swing by your local sex shop, and pick one up!

King Cock Range

King Cock is a leading brand when it comes to realistic dongs, so it would be a disservice to everyone if I left this brand off the list. They look and feel real, and are made from premium silicone, and are overall incredible toys. The King Cock range has dongs with balls, without balls, ones that are big, ones that are small, and one for you. Again, it’s completely personal preference, so take your time in deciding which toy you want to add to your arsenal of toys.

Once you’ve explored these ones, take your time in researching toys and finding what’s right for you; if you can dream it, they made a toy for it. Explore your local sex shop, online stores, forums, and even porn! There’s countless companies to satiate your deepest desires, so no matter what, there’s something for you.

Jump Into It:

What are you waiting for? You now have all the knowledge you need to be a professional pegger in no time. Take your partner, lover, or best friend, and open your sex life to a world of fun you’ve never had before. As the man who coined the term ‘pegging’, Dan Savage said “[everyone] should try pegging at least once, as it may introduce them to a new enjoyable sexual activity and illuminate them to the receiver’s perspective in sex”. So give it a go! Good luck, and happy strapping.

All these strap-ons are available at adultsmart sex shop online.
