When it comes to sex toys, there is just about something for everyone. If you aren’t interested in the shape or color of this toy, that one on a shelf across the room that will make you feel all tingly in your pants. Same goes for harnesses – some folks dig the glitzy apparatus with all the glitter and embossed leather, while others are just looking for a simple kit to keep their dick strapped on tightly. Today simple is what we are talkin’ – with Aslan’s Simple Harness, from Shevibe.com.
Usually known for their superior leatherwork, Aslan Leather has branched out to include vegan harness options. Along with offering up rubber and vinyl models, Aslan also brings a totally paired down version made of durable nylon webbing, sturdy plastic snaps and adjusters and a rubber ring with a little give. Simple is as basic as you can go, yet maintains the same integrity and quality as Aslan’s fancier toys.
While the Simple harness may look like just another cheap harness you could get at the porno shop down the street that sells jelly rubber toys in on the back wall, don’t let its unencumbered facade fool you. She may be plain, but her high quality materials, expert engineering and specific touches bring her worlds away from that cheap crap that will end up falling to pieces after a few uses. I like to think of Simple as the Toyota of dildo harnesses – she may not have the sparkle of a BMW, but you’ll still be riding her 20 years later, with nary a maintenance break. Seriously folks, Aslan is good at what they do.
What makes me love the Simple harness so very much are, really, the simple things that they’ve done that make it so superior to other nylon harnesses I’ve seen and tried. First up, they use nice and thick webbing that would be really hard to mess up, even if you tried. While I admit that it is not perfect, I will say that the seams on the webbing are a lot less jagged than other ones I’ve played with. I still might take a nail file to the sharper edges just to dull them a bit so you don’t get scratched. When it comes to the snaps, I am so freaking excited that they made this with plastic ones. Seriously, I don’t know if you’ve ever used a harness with metal snaps, but they are not only cold on the back, they rust when you clean your harness, which is totally counter-intuitive and super annoying. I’ve been thinking about plastic snaps for a while, and this is the first time I’ve actually seem them. And I can’t forget about the adjusters, which are made with strong teeth that keep the straps tight and your dick perfectly placed.
Along with the plastic snaps and strong teeth, I’ve got to say that I really like that it comes with only one ring. Sure, I am not be able to fit all of my cocks into that size ring, but I’d be lying if I said that I had any idea where any of the other extra rings I have actually are in my house. The last thing I need is another toy with 50 million parts to keep track of – and yes, I even mean a charger. But if it did have more than one part, Simple does come with a cute little storage bag to keep it safe and clean between uses, so I would keep everything together in there.
Another stand out quality of the Simple is that while it comes with two straps to wear as a jock strap harness, you can actually take one off and use it as a g-string harness. Talk about versatile! I love that I have that option and don’t have to think about buying a second harness to get a different experience. Oh, and speaking of straps, the hit strap is a lovely 56” long, so folks of many sizes can use this harness. While that may not be a big deal to some folks, I identify as a fat person, and if a sex toy doesn’t fit me, it kind of puts a damper on the experience.
