by Jiz Lee on / Sex Toys

It’s like SharkWeek, but with more action.

International Strap-on Week (or #strapweek, because Twitter) is up on us with a week full of events, promotions, and hot images of strap-on sex. For example, watch straps-in-action and worn by all genders at, see my strap-on sex against the wall with Lyric Seal in Going Here, and in my gay porn-inspired Genderflux shoot for Nikki Hearts. And then of course there was that one time when Bianca Stone and I shot for Strapped Dykes 2. Straps on Straps on Straps.

Wanna get in on the fun?! Post a #straponselfie and enter to win prizes from Spareparts Hardwear and Pleasure Works. The contest is judged by myself and fellow sexies: Q-Tip, Sophia St. James, and Queerie Bradshaw. Read more or check out the press release below. Show me how you strap it!


SAN FRANCISCO—Good Vibrations is ready to help customers “Harness your pleasure! Strap it on!” as they celebrate International Strap-On Week, June 16-22, with free classes, in-store and online promotions, and an entertaining #straponselfie social media contest.

Strap-on sex can be enjoyed by people of all genders. Most recently, Good Vibrations has seen a rise in the number of heterosexual couples who are interested in exploring sex where the man is on the receiving end of the strap-on. Cisgender male penetration can be an intimate and incredibly enjoyable experience, especially if the prostate is stimulated safely, as highlighted in The Ultimate Guide to Prostate Pleasure. Good Vibrations has led the way in sexual education and promoting not only lesbian and transgender strap-on use, but also the act of “pegging,” made famous by the Bend Over Boyfriend series starring Good Vibrations’ staff Sexologist, Dr. Carol Queen.

Good Vibrations celebrates International Strap-On Week with online and in-store events. On Wednesday, June 18, a sex educator/sales associate will lead a free Humpday Happy Hour workshop on Strap-on Sex at Good Vibrations’ Polk Street store. Store shoppers who want to strap one on can enjoy 50 percent off a Pleasure Works dildo with the purchase of any harness retailing at $50 or more.

Online visitors can read up on strap-on topics such as “How to Choose a Harness,” “How to Choose a Dildo,” and [targeted to cisgender heterosexual couples] “How to Have Strap-on Sex with a Male Partner.” Strap-on Harness Comparison Charts help show the differences in a side-by-side view. Good Vibrations prides itself on educating customers so that they can make an informed purchase and find the best toy for them. Online shoppers will also enjoy a 20 percent discount on any strap-on dildo with the purchase of a harness during Strap-On Week.

In the age of the selfie, why not strap it and snap it? Good Vibrations, in the spirit of light-hearted fun, encourages the community to participate in our first ever #straponselfie contest.
