RodeoH Briefs Review!
To tell you the truth, when I first received my RodeoH briefs I was a bit skeptical about whether it’d be able to hold up to my active lifestyle on top of my rowdy love life. They didn’t feel like a pair of the run-of-the-mill briefs that I was used to wearing. They felt kinda thinner, to be honest. I thought there was no way. And then I tried them on.
Simply amazing. They hug my hips and fit like a fucking glove. Easy to hand wash and hold their shape for ages instead of getting stretched out in a day like most underwear. They look good, they feel good. Hell, they ARE good.
Since I’m currently in a long distance relationship, I have not had a chance to test my harness out with another person yet. My review applies mainly to solo masturbation, packing, and day to day wearing.
So far the only real ‘problems’ I’ve had with mine are that the fit is a little off from how I usually wear my underroos, and that the O ring won’t hold some of my smaller pieces as snugly as my larger ones when I’m laying on my back [gravity helps hold them in place when I’m standing/sitting/kneeling]. The fit might be because I bought it a size off or because I’m just really picky with my underroos. As for the smaller pieces, I’ve found that when I’m laying down I can just wear a pair of snug underwear overtop and just pull my piece out over the waistband to let the second pair of underwear help hold the base in place. Easy fix, since I assume everyone that would go for this harness style has underwear with a snugish fit to start off with. If not, it’s a few bucks at the store.
In regards to packing with this harness, I have only had a problem with it once. Getting situated is as simple as slipping your packer of choice into the harness and arranging it to sit comfortably against you and adjusting your bulge as you please. That’s it. Just slide it in and forget about it. If you’re still worried about your packy slipping down the leg hole and out into your pants/shorts/bottoms, you can always place it in the front pouch and [assuming your packy has a shaft of some sort] pull the shaft out through the O ring to hang in front of your harness. Then either pull on another pair of underwear and adjust your packy as before or just pull on your pants/shorts/bottoms and go about your business. Personally, I enjoy the feeling of having my shaft freely hanging in my pants as I walk/sit/go about my business during the day.
The problem I referred to before resulted from a few things working together. First, I’d been wearing the harness for quite a while, and though it wasn’t necessarily loose, it wasn’t as snug and tight as it had been before. Second was that I was getting pretty sweaty from being hot and active at work for most of the day [It’s hotter than it looks in the back of Burger King working on board]. And third was that between the first two my packy had managed to work its shaft out of the leg hole, but still seemed fairly secure so I didn’t bother to rearrange the way it was sitting because I’d have to go do it discreetly somewhere then change out my gloves and wash my hands and all that jazz. So with all three of those things, when I dropped a bun and lurched forward to try to catch it, that was enough for my packy to fall the rest of the way out of my harness [this is all while I had simply slipped my packy into the harness between my body and the material of the front, not while having my packy secured in the front pouch with the shaft through the O ring], though I fortunately managed to keep it in the crotch region of my pants until I could get to a bathroom to deal with the problem. This can be avoided by being mindful of how your packy is sitting [aka just mentally checking in every now and again to be sure it’s still how you like it because this harness does a damn good job at keeping your junk in place when worn properly and kept in good condition] and excusing yourself to adjust your junk if you feel it might be shifting or will become a problem if left alone for too long.
RodeoH recommends buying 1 full size smaller than your measured size [the measurement around your hips in inches is your RodeoH sizing. You can either use a tape measurer to find your size or use a piece of string to measure around your hips and then measure the distance you recorded with the string with a ruler to get your size] for an extra snug fit, which would probably be better for packing and would probably reduce the risk of your packy falling out from minimal to basically non-existent.
I love the way my harness looks, though I wish it came in a few more colors [I’m a huge fan of yellows [ranging from ~yellow~ to golden yellow], purples, and greens, personally], and maybe even a few more styles of harnesses.
I’m quite taken with jock strap style harnesses since I love having my ass uncovered to be touched and for easier access. It’s a bit dysphoric for me when I’m going at it with my partner and if I want to be penetrated I have to either fumble around with the material to pull it out of the way and hope I don’t bust a seam/rip the material or I have to shuck my harness and lose my dick. Jock strap style harnesses definitely provide easier access while still being sexy as fuck and not requiring a bunch of cumbersome straps or buckles just like the way rodeoH is working to recreate the idea of harnesses.
It just so happened that my bullshit ~time of whenever the fuck it wants to fuck with my life~ reared its head while I was wearing these bad boys and not only did I not have any bleed outs/throughs while I was wearing them, they also washed right out with no problem and didn’t stain at all. I assume this came from the material being able to hold up to basic intimate/sex related fluids, but it sure as hell doubled as a way to keep any underwear I wore over them and my pants free of menstrual blood and any other fluids that decided they wanted to hang out in my crotchal region. They seem to do fine with holding up to a light, regular, and maybe even a lighter medium flow. As this isn’t their intended use, I wouldn’t recommend using them as a pad or as your main menstrual flow deterrent [or whatever you personally call what you use during your period to keep blood from destroying everything], but they work fairly well as a back up.
I’m extremely happy with my rodeoH harness. I love the way it looks, my partner loves the way it looks, and everyone that’s seen it [well…those who knew what it was] have given me compliments about how it looks and the great fit. They look like a basic pair of briefs, so it’s easy enough to not draw attention if someone sees you wearing them. I highly doubt anyone would question seeing these bad boys in the wash like they might a puddle of straps and clasps and buckles, so they’re great for if you don’t have a private washing machine [even if you’re only sharing with your family] or don’t have the time to wash them by hand and air dry them.
RATINGS FOR THE BRIEFS:
4/5 for design
4/5 for style/looks
4/5 for function
3/5 for ease of use/avoidance of dysphoria
5/5 for ease of putting on/taking off
4/5 for ease of cleaning
EXPLANATIONS/SUGGESTIONS [lol even more of me talking]
I always say there’s room for improvement. The 3 on the ease of use/avoidance of dysphoria comes partly from my preference for a more open harness that doesn’t require me to remove it to be penetrated [I like being stroked and it really helps keep dysphoria at bay if I look down and don’t see ~my biological junk~ there to confuse myself] and partly from me not having a piece that I’m completely comfortable with that fits snugly in the harness [My favorite is a bit on the small side, but is super smooth and soft and great for masturbating with. Since it’s smaller around the base it has the tendency to spin a bit and not stay sitting the way I like it to. It led to a bit of frustration for me, which in turn led to a bit of dysphoria.]
Another thing I wasn’t too fond of was how narrow the material got in the lower crotch that would go between my thighs. I’m used to that part being a bit wider in my briefs, but I guess that’s just personal preference.
I didn’t have any problem with my harness sagging or slipping down, but I did have it slide/ride up a little, which again might be from me not getting a proper reading for my fit. I tend to have a lot of problems getting underroos with a proper fit anyway, so maybe it’s just my ass to hips ratio that don’t match up to the ~standard~ lol.
