The 5 Best Thigh Strap-Ons for Mobility-Friendly Fun

Rachel Worthington

best thigh strap-on  in test
So, the idea of using a regular strap-on just didn’t do it for you (or perhaps you already own one)? Well, then perhaps you’d be interested in a thigh strap-on! This unique type of couple’s strap-on mounts to your thigh, opening up a bunch of new positioning options and allowing those with limited mobility to partake in the fun. Unlike traditional strap-ons that make it hard to “return the favor”, thigh strap-ons place you in the perfect positions for mutual stimulation. Whether you’re looking for a way to overcome mobility issues while boosting your sex life, searching for more mutual stimulation options, or just want a way to mount your favorite dildo securely to your pillow for stimulating solo sessions, a thigh strap-on is the perfect, low-cost way to make it happen!

Our Rating System Explained

Here at Bedbible, we use a standardized rating system (the “Bedbible Rating system) when assessing new products. Taking the same approach for every product allows us to consistently deliver concise, accurate assessments of new toys that are easy for even first-time readers to understand. The rating itself is based on an item’s performance in three different categories: “Design”, “Ease of Use”, and “Quality”. Ideally, a product will score well in all three of these categories, but it doesn’t necessarily need to receive high marks across the board to receive a decent “Bedbible Rating”. The final rating (which is scored on a scale of “1” to “5”) gives a summary of the product overall, but the individual category scores are listed above the “Bedbible Rating” as well, allowing you to see exactly why that item received the final score it did.

Why Use a Thigh Strap-On? 

Thigh strap-on toys are popular sex toys for seniors, and for good reason: they’re ideal for those with limited mobility! However, the fun isn’t limited to those in the 50+ club. Actually, anyone can use a thigh strap-on and enjoy the wide array of new positioning options that they can offer. While thigh strap-ons (like sex furniture) are technically designed for specific positions, that doesn’t mean you can’t get creative with the positioning. This is especially true for thigh strap-ons, which can be used on anything that they can be securely strapped onto (making pillows great stand-in partner substitutes for satisfying solo sessions)! Unlike traditional strap-ons, a thigh strap-on won’t block access to the genitals, allowing for a mutual pleasure exchange during use.

FAQ

Who can use a thigh harness strap-on?
The beauty of a harness strap-on is ANYONE can use it and enjoy it. Whether you are the giver, receiver strap-ons can be used regardless of how you identify.
How is a thigh strap-on different from a regular strap-on?
Regular strap-ons wrap around the waist, whereas thigh strap-ons wrap around—you guessed it—the thigh!
Can a thigh strap-on be used with any dildo?
No. The size of the dildo you can use with your thigh strap-on depends on the size of the o-ring. You will need to ensure your flared dildo will fit securely in your thigh strap-on.
Are thigh strap-ons adjustable?
It depends: many thigh strap-ons are adjustable, but some use stretchy materials to accommodate different thigh sizes instead.
Which positions can I use a thigh strap-on for?
The most basic options are having your partner ride your thigh, either facing towards or away from you. However, you can also get creative with your positioning (although this may take some getting used to!).

What is a Thigh Strap-On?

Thigh strap-on toys are a unique type of toy that’s suitable for both solo sessions and partner play. Designed to wrap around one partner’s thigh, securely mounting your choice of dildo in place, these toys allow one partner to ride their partner’s thigh while both partner’s hands are free to explore the other’s body. Thigh strap-ons are especially helpful for couples with mobility issues. The thigh strap-ons can often be strapped to a pillow for solo sessions as well. Although these toys generally don’t come with a dildo, they are fairly cheap (especially if you already own a compatible dildo!).

The Sportsheets Thigh Harness is an easy and affordable way to make sex new, fun and accessible! Just slot your choice of dildo into the sewn-in o-ring, strap it on using the adjustable velcro straps and you’re ready to play. Experiment with thrusting or grinding in different positions, all with hands free to allow both partners to explore other parts of the body. You could even go solo and strap-it around a pillow!

The soft, comfortable neoprene (the same stuff they make wetsuits from) forms to your body, meaning you can wear it for as long as you like without scratching or rubbing. The reinforced o-ring can accommodate dildo with a diameter of up to 1.25″ and a flared base of up to 2.5″ wide. It’s perfect for those who are just getting into strap-on play, or simply those who enjoy a slim dildo.

Conclusion

The Sportsheets Thigh Harness is a great all-rounder thigh strap-on, which is why it’s our test winner! It’s comfortable to wear, easy to put on and adjust, affordable, and machine-washable!

However, there are a couple of downsides. Of course, you’ll have to supply your own dildo with this thigh strap-on, and it will only accommodate smaller dildos. If you don’t have one already, check out our guide to the best small dildos here. The other thing to keep in mind is that it isn’t particularly large-thigh-friendly, and is only suitable for thighs less than 23″ around. If you fall into that category, don’t worry — take a look at our other options below.

The compact design of the Bondage Boutique thigh strap-on makes it perfect for travelling. It fits inside a standard-sized purse or backpack. Plus, it’s discreet — it’s easy to pass it off as a medical knee brace!

Of course, the cost of its smaller size is that it only fits thighs between 10 and 20 inches, and it won’t stretch anymore than that. It also won’t fit dildos larger than 1.5 inches, so if you’re a thick dildo fan, you’ll need to keep scrolling!

Ready for some double dildo action? The Sportsheets Dual Penetration Thigh Harness has been specially designed to allow you to experience vaginal and anal penetration at the same time! It has a wide, soft neoprene band that fits around thighs between 17 and 32 inches around, and two sewn-in o-rings to accommodate two dildos simultaneously. The bigger is designed for a slightly larger dildo for vaginal penetration, while the smaller is for a slim anal dildo (though, of course, you could wear it the other way round if you prefer!). Plus, you can also start off with just one dildo and add a second in later — the choices are all yours. A velcro closure makes it super easy to adjust to your fit, and you could even strap it to a pillow for double the riding pleasure.

Conclusion

Double penetration is a fantasy for many people, and this easy-to-use thigh strap-on makes it more accessible than ever before! This Sportsheets harness can be used with one or two dildos in sizes up to 1.75 inches in diameter, and fits a large variety of body sizes.

The thing to be aware of, however, is that the angle of the two o-rings is very flat. Since both will be sitting flush with your thigh, you may prefer to use a curved dildo in the anal o-ring to allow for the angle of your body. Two straight dildos might be quite difficult to ride simultaneously!

Our final pick of our favorite thigh strap-ons looks a little different from the others, and it’s perfect if you’re looking for something super secure and customizable. Each strap of the Inclusion Thigh Harness can be adjusted separately using the secure ladder clips, so you can find your best ever fit. Then there’s the o-ring, made from solid metal that holds your dildo sturdily in place. If you want something a bit bigger (or smaller), you can easily swap it out using the snaps — it’s truly the most versatile thigh strap-on!

Each harness is handmade by a Canadian trans activist, and the proceeds of each sale go towards creating safe spaces for queer and trans folks in schools in rural Ontario. If you weren’t already enamored, then knowing that your money is doing good might just do it!

While there’s lots to love about the Inclusion harness, the shining star is really the fact that you can use any o-ring with it. This gives you truly unlimited options when it comes to dildos — as long as it’s got a flared base, you’re good to go.

For Those Who Love the Leather-Look

More Accessible Strap-On Harnesses

Thigh harnesses are far from the only way to enjoy strap-on play! Traditional strappy harnesses aren’t the best option for everybody, but there are all kinds of harness available these days. Whether you find pelvic thrusting difficult, can’t adjust lots of different straps, or just want something new and fun, here are some of our favorite alternative harnesses…

Thigh Strap-On Positions

The Leggy Cowgirl

The Leggy Cowgirl

The Leggy Cowgirl

Cowgirl (or cowboy, or cowperson) is a perennial favorite position, but can be difficult or impractical for a number of reasons. Try it out with a thigh strap-on and have your partner ride and grind on your thigh instead.

The Chair Champion

The Chair Champion

The Chair Champion

Sit in a chair with your thigh harness strapped on and have your partner ride or grind on your leg. They can face away and have their feet on the ground, or (if it’s a bigger chair) have them face you and kneel on the chair with one leg on either side of yours.

The Height-Adjusted Doggy

The Height-Adjusted Doggy

The Height-Adjusted Doggy

If you and your partner have a bit of a height difference, finding positions that match up well can be a challenge. Make positions like standing doggy easier by wearing a thigh harness so you can thrust away without straining your legs trying to squat down!

The Rise and Grind

The Rise and Grind

The Rise and Grind

Thigh strap-ons are also great solo companions. Go for a ride on your own by wrapping your thigh harness around a pillow (or couple of pillows) for a super quick DIY dildo mount! For extra oomph, incorporate a bullet vibrator or butt plug.

How to Use a Thigh Strap-On Harness

How to Use a Thigh Strap-On Harness

Find the Correct Size

Find the Correct Size

While most thigh strap-ons are adjustable, you should still make sure that the strap-on you have your eyes on will fit you correctly. Depending on what it’s made from, it will stretch more or less, but too tight and it will pop right off, or worse, constrict blood flow to your leg.

Attach Your Dildo

How to Use a Thigh Strap-On Harness

Its usually easier to attach your dildo before you put on your thigh strap-on. Make sure the dildo will fit the o-ring of the harness, and that it has a flared base that will act as an anchor to stop it coming out.

How to Use a Thigh Strap-On Harness
How to Use a Thigh Strap-On Harness

Lube Up

Lube Up

Once you’re ready to ride, don’t forget to lube up! Lube prevents unwanted friction, and is great at stopping discomfort and injuries. If you’re using your thigh strap-on anally, lube is imperative! And finally, ensure that your lube is compatible with your dildo — silicone dildos, for example, should only be used with water-based lube.

How to Clean a Thigh Strap-On

How you clean your thigh strap-on harness will depend on the materials its made from. Many neoprene harnesses are machine-washable, but should not be tumbled-dried or they'll shrink and/or deform. You can place them inside a mesh laundry bag when machine washing them to protect them further, and stop your other clothes getting caught on the velcro. If your neoprene strap-on isn't machine-washable, use lukewarm water and a mild soap and lather it up gently. Leather harnesses are a bit different, and you should follow the care instructions from the manufacturer. Generally, they should just be wiped down with a damp cloth and conditioned with leather conditioner every so often.

Porous
materials

Soft plastic, hard plastic, jelly, rubber, Cyberskin are all porous materials, meaning that small particles and bacteria can penetrate the surface. This makes it impossible to completely clean these types of materials.

Therefore, it is recommended that you use a condom with these types of toys, especially if you are sharing them. Clean these toys with mild soapy water and dry gently with a towel. These materials are more easily damaged, so be sure to be gentle and make sure your toys are completely dry before storing.

Non-propous
materials

Silicone, glass, stainless steel and some hard plastics can all be washed using a mild soap (like you would use on your body) and warm water. Just be careful if your toy contains electrical parts.

Silicone and stainless steel toys without any electrical parts can also be boiled for sterilisation.

The toys with electrical
components

If your toys contain electrical components, be extra careful when cleaning them and always check the instructions provided with the toy. You can use a gentle cloth and soap to wipe or sex toy cleaner or cleaning wipe to down your toy, making sure that no water comes into contact with the electrical parts.
