Have you ever been curious about strap-on play, but have no clue where to start? There are a lot of choices when it comes to choosing a harness and dildo(s), and sometimes it can be difficult to gauge what will be the best fit at first. The Bend Over Beginner Kit by Tantus is the perfect introductory toy, as it is extremely easy to use and comes with everything you’ll need to begin bending your partner over!
The Bend Over Beginner comes with a velvet harness that is super comfortable, adjustable, and machine washable. The front pad of the harness sits in the perfect place both for comfortable angling in any position, and for the dildo to apply the perfect amount of pressure to the clitoris of the wearer during sex. For added stimulation, there is a little pocket inside the harness that fits a bullet vibrator that also comes in the kit. The straps of the harness are extremely long, as to fit a myriad of body types. I recommend trying the harness on prior to using it so you have plenty of time to fit the straps to your body before getting down to business. For a smaller body, it might be helpful to trim the straps after measuring them so they don’t tangle or get in the way.
There are two silky smooth, 100% premium silicone dildos in the kit as well. Both dildos are relatively small in size; smaller dildo- 7/8” in diameter and 4 ½” in length, and larger dildo- 1 1/4”in diameter and 5 ½” in length. They’re perfect for safely exploring anal penetration, or for anyone who enjoys the feeling of a smaller toy. Although there are two O-rings that come with the Bend Over Beginner, they can be changed out with a larger ring if you decide you want to use a bigger dildo.
Each kit comes in either Purple Haze (a light, iridescent purple) or Black. I got Purple Haze, and was a little concerned about keeping the light colored harness looking clean. I was delightfully surprised to see how easy it cleaned up in my washing machine, and how well the material has held up from washing so far. Since the dildos are 100% silicone they can be sterilized in a dishwasher, with a 10% bleach solution (1 part bleach, 9 parts water), or (my favorite) by boiling them for 3-5 minutes. Remember: because the dildos are made of silicone, silicone based lubricants will degrade them over time. Therefore, you should stick to water-based lubricants with this product.
The Bend Over Beginner is the perfect toy for anyone of any gender looking to try strap-on play for the first time. If you have already experienced strap-on play or prefer larger dildos, Tantus also has the Bend Over Intermediate Kit; which is essentially the same kit, but with dildos that measure 1.25″ x 5.5″ and 1.5″ x 7″.
