It was only yesterday that I was lamenting the restricting elements of being a plus-sized woman in a world that, for the most part, seems to want to ignore the existence of larger individuals. Clothes shopping can often make a plus-sized person feel like they’re not meant to have nice things, and yesterday I basically had to make a U-turn upon entering a lingerie shop that was clearly, from first glance, not for me.
The range is admittedly small at the moment but it includes some lovely harnesses as well as the object of review for today—the Sportsheets Plus Size Doggie Strap. And, I have to say, this strap makes me incredibly happy that the adult product world gets me a lot more than the ‘normal’ world does.
The Sportsheets Plus Size Doggie Strap
On the surface the Sportsheets Plus Size Doggie Strap may not seem like much. Essentially this product is a padded belt with adjustable straps, designed to enhance pleasure during the ‘doggie style’ position.
Position enablers can often get an underwhelming reaction, as people wonder if they couldn’t just replicate the product themselves with a DIY or makeshift version. However, I can honestly say that the Sportsheets Plus Size Doggie Strap is excellently designed for the job at hand—to the point where jury rigging something instead of just buying this strap would be doing yourself a disservice.
The padded belt of the Sportsheets Plus Size Doggie Strap is made of polyethylene foam covered in a soft polyester fabric which feels like a hybrid between fleece and felt. The handles are made from polyethylene webbing, with adjustable buckles made from ABS plastic. All of this is body-safe and makes for a very comfortable ride.
The polyester fabric felt soft and comfy on the stomach (with help from the padding) while the polyethylene straps make the Plus Size Doggie Strap feel sturdy and gives a sense of security. Mr. Peaches found that gripping this strapping was incredibly easy and at no point did either of us feel like we were going to break the Plus Size Doggie Strap, despite my larger figure.
The measurements of the Plus Size Doggie Strap have also been adjusted to fit larger users. The Plus Size Doggie Strap has been made 7 inches longer and 1 ½ inches wider than the original Sportsheets Doggie Style Strap. In total this makes the padded section of the Plus Size Doggie Strap about 21 inches in length and 5 ½ inches in width. For me the Plus Size Doggie Strap fit perfectly into position, so I was thankful for this added length and girth.
Now, while I wouldn’t say that the Sporthsheets Plus Size Doggie Strap has ‘revolutionized our love life’ (or anything so similarly over exaggerated) I do feel like the Plus Size Doggie Strap adds a very enjoyable new element into our doggie style escapades.
The Plus Size Doggie Strap makes it so that my partner can easily and confidently get a grip on something during doggie style and, subsequently, can get much more ‘in the moment’. As such the Plus Size Doggie Strap allows us both to be more vigorous and daring while in this position.
Sportsheets claims that the Plus Size Doggie Strap compresses the vaginal canal to create tighter sensations and allows for deeper penetration. Both Mr. Peaches and I can agree with these assertions. For me using the strap made Mr. Peaches’ penis a lot more prominent and I could feel him getting increasingly deeper through his spirited thrusts. Meanwhile Mr. Peaches found that the strap allowed him the freedom to lean back further, which let the head of his penis rub strongly against my vaginal walls. This feeling is something that we both thoroughly enjoy and it’s not as easy to achieve without the Plus Size Doggie Strap.
Mr. Peaches also commented that he was happy that he didn’t have to grab onto my sides and could, instead, use the strap for leverage. While this has never bothered me Mr. Peaches has had worries about leaving marks in the past, so the Plus Size Doggie Strap helps eliminate this worry. Anyone who is conscious of their figure might also find this beneficial—as you don’t have to worry about your partner grabbing hold of areas that you personally find undesirable.
Any issues my partner and I have with the Plus Size Doggie Strap feel more like nit-picks rather than actual downsides. Like any fabric item, the Plus Size Doggie Strap can pick up lint, hair, etc. so the strap needs a bit of a dust off before and after use (esp. if you own a pet). There also aren’t any cleaning care instructions provided with the Plus Size Doggie Strap, which is a bit of a downer.
One thing my partner and I did consider is that the polyethylene webbing might feel a bit uncomfortable or rub for some users, but we didn’t personally experience any problems with this.
Overall I adore the Sportsheets Plus Size Doggie Strap. It’s a product that has sincerely added something to our sex life—providing deeper, closer, and more intense penetration while doing doggie style. The dimensions of the Plus Size Doggie Strap seemed to fit my larger frame perfectly and made for a comfortable experience.
If you’re a larger individual looking to get deep down and ‘ruff during a doggie style session then I can’t recommend this product enough.
Plus sized people wanting to explore doggie style.
People who want a deep feeling during.
People who are self-conscious.
Do Not Recommend to:
People who dislike doggie style.
People who have sensitive hands (for the strap holder).
People who aren’t plus-sized (instead, check out the original Doggie Strap).
