1. How to Use a Vac-U-Lock Strap-On Dildo and Harness

    So you've decided to try strap-on sex. Before you begin, you'll need the right equipment!

    You'll need to ensure your harness and dildo are compatible with one another. But what if you fancy trying a larger or smaller attachment? You might find that your new toy doesn't fit your harness.

    To solve this problem, Doc Johnson have created an ingenious strap-on system. Vac-U-Lock is the world's first fully interchangeable pleasure system which enables you to enjoy strap-on sex, without worrying about O-rings, flared bases and appendage girths.

    All you need to do is check whether the toy is Vac-U-Lock friendly, and you're good to go!

    All Vac-U-Lock products are made from durable materials and chances are once you've bought one, you won't need to buy another for a very, very long time.



    The Essentials 


    1. How does it work?

      Unlike most strap-ons which require an O-ring set up, Vac-U-Lock strap-ons feature a unique plug system which securely holds your attachment in place for penetrative fun. By using a plug instead of an O-ring, Vac-U-Lock harnesses are compatible with all Vac-U-Lock attachments, no matter the size or girth of the attachment you'd like to use.

      Each Vac-U-Lock attachment is designed with a purpose-built hole in the bottom which fits perfectly over the patented plug. To attach your dildo to the harness, simply push your chosen toy onto the the plug and voilà! You're ready to roll.

      Because you don't have to feed the attachment through an O-ring, you won't need to work out whether its girth is compatible with your harness and O-ring. This makes shopping for new attachments online even easier, and gives you the freedom to experiment with different proportions.

      If you like the idea of Vac-U-Lock, but already have traditional flared base strap-on toys, fear not! Doc Johnson have also created a 'Platinum' version of the harness which is compatible with both Vac-U-Lock and flared based toys.

      1. Doc Johnson Vac-U-Powder

      2. The Powder

        Doc Johnson's Vac-U-Powder has two main uses. One is to help with attaching your dildo to your harness, and the other is for toy maintenance. You'll find a free sample of powder in any complete set, but you'll probably want to purchase more for when your sample runs out.

        For application, squeeze a generous amount into the hole on the bottom of your attachment before pushing onto the Vac-U-Lock plug. It will help you affix your chosen dildo and maintain proper suction.

        Made in the same way as renewer powder, Vac-U-Powder can also be used to maintain the real-feel of Doc Johnson's UR3 sex toys. Just add a generous sprinkle after cleaning to keep your toy feeling oh-so-lifelike.
