Review: Oxyd Creations Bike Tube Harness

If this was the unconventional material challenge on a sex-nerd Project Runway, the Oxyd Creations harness would take it, hands down. That program (sadly?) doesn’t exist, but this kick-ass harness made out of recycled bike tubes does, and it’s impressive.

If the L’Amourose Prism VII has taught me anything, it’s that it is really fucking hard to measure the distance from one’s vaginal opening to the clitoris! It’s not a measurement I was curious about until reading other reviews of this dual stimulation vibrator where the reviewer’s clit is left looking down at the VII’s external arm like “are you even trying?” As more of a stump than an arm, I see why, and yet this clit stump works for me.
