Strap On Question

Wearing a Dildo under your Clothes

By

My partner and I recently invested in a strap on (and it's amazing!). On The L Word season three Shane goes to see Cherie with a strap on under her pants. It'd be awesome to surprise my girlfriend with it like that, but I know you have to clean it regularly and was wondering if this would be safe to do? If I cleaned it before would that be enough or would I have to clean it before it was actually used?

Great question. I’m happy you’re enjoying your new sex toy. And I’m even happier to hear that you’re concerned about keeping it healthy and safe.

I suggest carrying a condom with you and slipping that on the dildo before you use it with your partner. Use a water-based lube to reduce friction. Also, be sure to clean the dildo with warm soapy water and change condoms whenever you switch between each other.

Here are some more safe sex tips for lesbians and bisexual women.
