not all it's cracked up to be

One topic I'd definitely like to address on this site is toys. I think talking about toys can be really helpful and can give people ideas about what they might like to try and what they might like to avoid. And on that note, let me tell you about the Nexus double-headed dildo.

A few years ago, in a previous relationship, my partner and I started playing around with the strap-on and decided to try out one of these here double-headed dildos. We were both into experiencing the penetration and this seemed like a great way for us both to be stimulated at the same time.

For those of you unfamiliar with this contraption, I'll explain. Most harnasses have a patch of padded material behind the O-ring (which is what holds the dildo in place) to protect the wearer's bits from getting squished against the pressure of the pouding. To use the double header, you remove that material so that the O is completely open. Then you slip the pointy-outy side of the dildo through the O to penetrate your partner (the receiver), leaving the pointy-uppy part in a prime place to penetrate you (the wearer). Harder to explain than to show, but I think you get the picture.

Anyway, we bought it right before our "honeymoon" (yes, we were married -- that's a long story I'm not going to tell right now) and we saved it for that "romantic" weekend in a cabin in the San Juans. Pretty much everything about that romantic weekend was a bust, including this toy. It sucked. The angles were all wrong for both of us, it didn't feel good to be the giver or the receiver, and it was otherwise just deeply disappointing.

Unfortunately, it was also expensive and for almost four years now I've been holding onto this pricey but useless piece of silicone, waiting to find some good use for it. Well I finally did. Yesterday I put it on the kitchen counter and sliced it in half with a butcher knife. Where there was once one monstrosity, there are now two somewhat small but perfectly useful cocks. The slice-job I did wasn't perfect, it's a little crooked, but I think it'll work fine in a harnass if we choose to use it, not to mention the slender, straight one could be perfect for anal.

But we'll talk about anal later.

P.S. Thanks for stepping up with the comments! As I suspected, you guys ROCK!

P.P.S. Sorry for the shitty quality of that dildo image, I couldn't find a larger file to steal off the internet. This was the best I could do.

Hi! Found this blog via RSG and I think it's great. My wife and I have the toy you showed and we love it, although there are definitely positions were it works better. Plus, she is disabled and often just can't physiologically tolerate penetration at all, but we still enjoy the hell out of it! We've been talking about strap ons, but I'm a pretty large woman, and would worry that I couldn' find a harness to fit. Maybe one day...

hey grumpy granny, i'm glad you found this site and like it. that makes me really happy. and thanks for the input on that toy. i know some people really love them but i couldn't get into it. if you don't mind my asking, how have you used it if you haven't used a strap=on? i'm curious...

oh, and also gg, i know they make plus-sized harnasses -- if you're in portland you should call up It's My Pleasure and ask for info. meanwhile, i'll do a little research myself and get back to you.

Thanks!

There are definitely plus size harnesses out there! Try Aslan Leathers.

I too was intrigued by Nexus but we tried it once, maybe twice and it just sits in the play drawer. Taking a knife to it might be a good idea. Also not quite as important a goal after all....
