I was delighted when Lovehoney sent me some RodeoH strap-on underwear to review. When the harness arrived I was eager to try it on, but unfortunately I had been sent the incorrect size; L instead of the XS. I was still curious to see how well the Large would fit me, as essentially the band on the large is a similar size to my hip sizing, and as these are designed to be low-rise underwear I thought I might be able to get away with this size. Regrettably they were still far too big for me, meaning that they sat too high up on my body, making the O-ring positioned just under my belly button, rather than in the centre of my pubic mound. After emailing Lovehoney, they very quickly arranged for the correct size to be sent to me for my review.RodeoHs arrive in a soft fabric drawstring bag; this is perfect for discreetly storing the underwear while not in use. There is a label attached to the bag, with a small amount of information regarding the product. For some reason the label states ‘Do Not Eat’. I’m guessing that this is meant to be humorous, as seriously, who would try and eat a strap-on harness? Inside the bag you will also find a metal dog tag with the brand name engraved into it. Personally I doubt I’ll actually be using the dog tag, as the metal seems to scratch easily, although I do know some people who rather like the fact it comes with the dog tag, and proudly wear it.The underwear comes in a range of sizes, starting from a XS UK 8-10 with a waist band of 25-26 inches, up to a XL UK 20-22 with a 36-38 inch waist band. I think Lovehoney have done an excellent job in working out the UK sizes for this product; when holding the XS against UK size 8-10 briefs the proportions are almost identical. They are made from a soft material which is 95% Cotton and 5% Elastane – the fabric is surprisingly soft, has great elasticity, and isn’t too thin, meaning that they are likely to last a while. The waist band is very thick compared to those you would find on most female underwear, being 1½ inches wide. The elastic in the waistband is pretty strong, and can be stretched a good few inches without warping the band’s shape. On the waist band you will also find the brandname printed, which gives the product the look of designer underwear. RodeoHs are design to appear similar to male Y-fronts, using blocky red and black colours outlined by a light grey fabric. I really like the masculine aesthetics of the RodeoH strap-on; it somehow makes the strap-on appear more user friendly when compared with the standard buckle style harnesses. You can easily use the RodeoH for packing during gender play or as a harness during pegging. At the centre of the Y-fronts you will find a strong 1½ diameter O-ring sewn into the fabric; the stitching feels pretty secure. The O-ring is flexible, but isn’t overly stretchy. Behind the O-ring there is a slit for threading your strap-on compatible toy, or packing cock, through.Wearing the RodeoH is extremely comfortable; I’m able to wear these under most clothing and still perform daily tasks, and even exercise. This means that I can use the RodeoH either for packing when desired, offering a packing cock plenty of support and making it sure it stays in place, or placed under my clothing so I’m ready to go if I and my partner wish to use it spontaneously for pegging. I have noticed that the underwear doesn’t work under some fabrics as the O-ring can occasionally show through, but these are often very thin fabrics such as silk. I was a little worried that the RodeoH’s strong elastic would mean that the harness cut into my skin, but I’m pleased to say that I haven’t experienced this.When placing a dildo into the harness, you are able to thread it through the slit at the front into the O-ring. This can sometimes be a bit tricky, depending on the size and flexibility of the toy. After trying out various sized dildos in the harness, I found that ones with 5 inches of circumference and below generally worked well. If you are a fan of larger toys, sadly the RodeoH O-ring is just too small to accommodate them. Depending on the weight of the toy you may experience some droopage, but I’ve found the elastic keeps the toy in position better than some other forms of strap-ons.When choosing a lubricant to use with your RodeoH, I recommend one which is water based and doesn’t stain fabrics.When using the strap-on with my partner I found that it gave excellent control during insertion. While thrusting, I found that sometimes the harness would pull away from my body, meaning that the base of the dildo used would sometimes cause discomfort to my pubic mound. I feel that this is partly due to the weight of the toy we were using, alongside the motions used while thrusting, as it doesn’t seem to happen all the time. The majority of the time I had excellent control. During use, I enjoyed how I was able to feel my partner’s body when it brushed against the fabric of the RodeoH. This made me more confident when using the harness, and was sexually arousing. The aesthetics of the harness also made my partner feel more confident and aroused. I feel that as the RodeoHs were comfortable to wear, and this made me more comfortable and confident, this helped my partner relax more during use, as he could tell I was relaxed. When removing a dildo from the RodeoH I found that it was easier to take them off completely, as it felt a little uncomfortable trying to thread the toy out of the pocket. Unlike other harnesses, this is very simple, as you don’t have to worry able fiddly straps.The RodeoH’s fabric dye does have a slight synthetic scent to it, but it does fade after washing. I recommend handwashing the RodeoHs, as the dye does seem to fade, albeit slowly. This will also help maintain the elasticity of the harness. Overall I really like the RodeoH harness. It isn’t intimidating in appearance, and it’s extremely comfortable and easy to use. I look forward to seeing more products from this company in the future.Thank you to Lovehoney for sending me the RodeoHs harness for my review. You can purchase it Here.
