The Best Strap Ons in the Biz!

A strap on is a the ultimate lesbian sex toy and in recent years has become an increasingly popular toy for straight couples wishing to explore the delights of pegging.

But back when we started, if a woman wanted to strap-on a dildo to pleasure her female or male lover, she had only two choices; either a ridiculous elasticated affair that twanged back on her every out-stroke, and so flimsy it couldn’t hold up a banana… Or a heavy leather/rubber strap on, complete with studs and buckles and about as comfortable as a medieval chastity belt!

Dildo-wise it was dick shaped all the way…

No wonder these toys turned a lot of people off strap on sex.

For many lesbians , ‘realistic’ strap-ons felt weird – after all,  many had been told for years that either they were trying to be a man (with their short haircuts and ‘manly’ boots!) or all they actually needed was a good seeing to by a man…

For most M/F couples ‘realistic’ strap-ons weren’t right either. Straight men were just beginning to discover the pleasures (particularly prostate pleasures!) of strap-on sex,  but being done by a dick-shaped dildo wasn’t always (or usually!) on their fantasy list.

When we first opened, we searched in vain for descent strap-ons to stock. Whilst innovative and colorful silicone dildos were being made by bespoke producers in the US and NZ, no one was doing it here.

Problem was, as hand-poured, artisan dildos, they were already not cheap, but for us to import them, would make them financially inaccessible to many of our customers.

So, we resolved to make our strap on harnesses and dildos instead.

Silicone is a very tricky raw material to work with. It needs de-gassing to remove all the air bubbles, otherwise you end up with dildos that resemble aero bars!

Silicone is also very sensitive to atmospheric conditions; too hot or too dry and it starts to set before you’ve finished pouring; too cool or damp, and you get permanently tacky sex toys (which is not a desirable unique selling point!).

For the first few months we were producing more dog chew toys than dildos, such was our failure rate. Our exasperation and frustration levels soared as our finances dwindled. Silicone is a very expensive raw material, and as the business started out on £700 and had no financial backing, each duff dildo batch took us nearer to the brink of giving up.

But slowly we learned how to understand and control the sensitivities of silicone and we were on our way.

Meanwhile we had addressed the designing of the perfect harnesses to accompany our  dildos. No longer were the women of the UK going to be forced into uncomfortable, unflattering  and often unpractical strap-on harnesses.

Our strap on harnesses are made in soft leather in easy to wear styles, without pinching buckles and gravity-defying weight.

From our simple 2 strap harness to our sassy corset harness to the inventive thigh harness, Sh! was the first company in the UK to produce quality strap-on’s and offer couples of all persuasions the kind of innovative and stylish sex toys they deserved – and wanted to play with!

We are now the largest manufacturer of silicone dildos and strap on harnesses in the EEC producing 40 unique silicone dildo designs and 10 styles of strap on harnesses in an array of cool colours.

We’re no longer pouring dildos in our shop basement but in a dedicated manufacturing unit.

Our dodgy dildo days are long gone – nowadays our strap-on dildos are requested to star in films, featured in TV shows and reviewed in major mags.

More importantly, long, LONG gone are the days of enforced  comedy strap-on dongs; Sh! strap-on’s have turned them into the cool, classy toys for sensual lesbian sex and pleasurable pegging.
