Review: Babes n Horny Frisco Harness and Mack Dildo



She Says:

We were very generously sent this fantastic harness and dildo set from the lovely people at Babes n Horny as a bit of a treat a while back. So many of you will have seen the pictures we took originally of them, it has proven to be an extremely popular post of ours, and I'm not surprised; it's an extremely sexy set. So here we are finally getting round to doing the review, but fear not, it was worth the wait...

Stepping away from the traditional sex toy colours we have the Mack in an electric blue and the Frisco harness in red denim (combined with the white shoes and socks I have on it's very patriotic don't you think? I should have done this post for the jubilee weekend!). I absolutely love the colours, often strap-on sex can be seen only as a BDSM activity, but these fun, vibrant colours shout out to the world that strap-on's can be for anyone!

I'll start with the harness first. Frisco was extremely easy to put on, even for the first time. All you have to do is step into the leg pieces and then tighten the straps up by pulling the excess material through the D-rings. I'm not sure what size I got sent, but there is a lot of excess material. For me this is probably one of the only downsides to this harness, I might get round to cutting the ends off and sewing them at some point, but in the meanwhile I tend to just double the straps back over on themselves and tuck them in somewhere so that they're not dangling about and getting in the way. On the plus side, this does mean that this harness will fit a huge range of figures (perhaps up to about a UK 22... don't quote me on that, it's a guess!). There are two ways of wearing the straps, either with them spread wide and going around your bum like a jock-strap (I find this more comfortable) or with the straps closer together at the back, more like a g-string.

Frisco is not only extremely comfortable, but it is by far the strongest of our harnesses.  Mack (the dildo) is absolutely huge, and weighs in at a whopping 800g! The Frisco harness supports it's huge weight effortlessly, without causing any discomfort to the wearer. It is the only harness we own that is able to cope with this beast! Because the straps have no give in them, once the harness is tightened, it stays tightened. If you have used strap-on's before you will be aware that one of the most annoying things is when the base of the dildo pulls away from your pubic area when you're trying to thrust, resulting in a lack of control of the toy and a much less satisfying experience. We've used the Frisco and Mack combination loads of times and we've never had this issue. In fact this is probably our most secure set, it allows me to have much more finely-tuned control over my actions and because of that I find it extremely satisfying to use.

If you decide to buy a Frisco harness you have to make a decision on what size O-ring (the ring that holds the dildo) you would like, as this is permanently sewn in and is not interchangeable. This does mean that it is slightly less versatile than other harnesses, but there are few positives that emerge from that. Firstly, it's much stronger as there aren't any fastenings to come undone. Secondly, it's much easier to use as there's no faffing around changing O-rings. In addition to this it also adds a luxury personal touch, to know that this harness is being hand-made for you to your specification; something which I think certainly helps justify the price tag. Obviously there is also the fact that many of your dildos (if you have a large collection!) will actually fit into the same sized O-ring. However, I would say that a Babes n Horny Harness is a must if you want to get a Mack (or similarly large dildo from them) for strap-on use; but I will talk more about that later.

The Mack dildo itself is an absolute beaut. Like all Babes n Horny dildos it comes with a choice of 39 different colour options! These range from classic primary colours, through to neons, skin tones, metalics and even camo; so there really is something for everyone. I would highly recommend checking out all the colour options on their website if you haven't been there before; it really is very impressive. In addition to this, if you're not too fussed about colour you can save some pennies and opt for the "random colour" option.

As I've said already, Mack is absolutely huge; it's classed as extra large on their website; but if you're not into massive dildos I really wouldn't let this put you off. Mack might be long (roughly 25cm full length) and girthy around the base, but the realistic head is actually quite small, and the top 15cm or so a completely workable size for most people. This not only means that insertion is very easy, but that you can warm up by just thrusting with the top half before taking the plunge for some deeper thrusts. In fact, sometimes I will use only the top part of the dildo for the whole session (only occasionally, normally Alex is begging for more by the time he's warmed up!). The length is one of the factors that make the Mack so fantastic for use when pegging. It can be very difficult for girls to thrust in the same way as our male counterparts, just because of our anatomy; our hips are made in a different way. I find that longer dildos make lots of pegging positions much easier (and would of course do the same for lesbian strap-on sex). So although I wouldn't class this toy as a beginner's option, I wouldn't say it's solely for advanced users either. It is definitely suitable for someone who enjoys a medium sized dildo, but has the added benefit of being able to act as a training tool to get you up to wider girths gradually; as well as being able to satisfy those who are more advanced with their anal play.

I think when it comes to attractiveness of the set, the pictures speak for themselves. I do feel very sexy in this get-up; that stunning erect angle of the Mack in the harness is just to die for. It really is a work of art.

I have actually used the Mack on myself vaginally without the harness. It was perfectly fine to use, but as it's so heavy it did really hurt my wrist. I continued with the show however as Alex found it incredibly sexy to see me using such an over-sized cock! I know Alex doesn't find the harness that comfortable to wear (it is designed for women after all), but if ever I had a sexy woman to play with I'd love her to try this dildo and harness combination out on me.; I imagine it would be a lot of fun!

If you're considering buying the Mack dildo for use in a strap-on harness, I would strongly advise that you buy a harness from the Babes n Horny range to go with it. Frisco is the only harness we have that is strong enough to hold this bad boy firmly in place to allow for a really fantastic experience. Not only this, it is the only harness we have with a large enough O-ring, we've not actually managed to find somewhere to buy interchangeable O-rings in this size (65mm) yet, though I'm sure they're out there somewhere. I realise the combination of the two products is very expensive, but I can assure you that you definitely get what you pay for. This is a top quality, reinforced, extra-strong, super-luxury harness with a huge hunk of silicone that has been carefully hand-crafted for your orgasmic pleasure. This is my absolute favourite set for use when pegging Alex, we come back to it time and time again and I know that it is a product that is going to last us for years to come. I cannot recommend these two products highly enough.

He Says:

We received these a while ago, but wanted to give them a through testing before posting a review. Which takes a while, as I'm not always up for such an experience. But when I am... Well.

We have decided to review this as a set for the reasons Lucy outlined above, but obviously you could use this dildo with a different harness or vice-versa. But the combination of the two looks striking and stunning on Lucy; the Frisco harness supports the dildo at a delicious angle, and the size and boldness of the dildo definitely excite me. The Mack dildo is a hefty chunk of fairly firm silicone, meaning it maintains its shape well, but there is a little bit of bounce and give in the material so it is not too unforgiving, in that regard at least.

Of course, being silicone means that this dildo can be sterilised by boiling for a few minutes (if you have a large enough pan, we use a jam pan which we also make our dildo soup in), as well as cleaning normally with a sex toy cleaner or a 10% bleach solution. In addition to this the Frisco harness is fully machine washable as it is made of denim, which is a rather brilliant thing as our harnesses often end up covered with a bit of lube (and perhaps on a rare occasion a bit of Santorum - if you don't know, don't ask), and it is pretty tricky to clean leather satisfactorily.


So how is this monster in me? Well, I don't want to worry people but I find it pretty comfortable - dare I say easy - to use. Before you start backing away slowly, hear me out. Despite the massive length, and huge girth at the base, the first few inches are not such an abnormal size. Therefore the initial penetration is not so brutal. You then have the choice of how much you want to take, with the advantage that you have plenty of handle to work with.

I wouldn't really recommend this dildo for prostate play, as it is somewhat difficult to manoeuvre into precise positions. It also simply seems a bit wasteful if this was your main use, as you wont be able to take advantage of the majority of this dildo.

This is similarly the case for vaginal use. It looks absolutely amazing when Lucy uses it, a real show and treat for me, but it seems to me if you are paying for all that silicone you should be able to use it!

It is in a harness that the Mack dildo really comes into its own. Providing you have a serious harness to tame this beast. The length means you can play in a variety of positions, including those such as (anal) missionary that can be tricky with a shorter dildo. Furthermore, if you find yourself in need of a real seeing to, the length and shape make that possible. I have particularly enjoyed this pairing in doggy-style, where I am able to take it to the hilt.

I have tried this harness on myself, and found it not particularly well suited to a man, as the lower straps pinch the scrotum uncomfortably (though less so than some hard leather straps might). This is unsurprising due to the target market, but it is worth noting that Babes n Horny sell a couple of harnesses designed for male use, if this is something you are interested in.

Overall, I think this combination is pretty spectacular. The harness is very sexy, with a very different look to the vast majority of harnesses, whilst being extremely strong and supportive, not to mention the practical benefits with regards washing. The only major disadvantage is the lack of changeable o-ring, though on the plus side you can choose what size you want. Mack is a wonderfully intimidating dildo (available in an array of colour options), but its bark is definitely worse than its bite. I don't think you would necessarily get the most out of it vaginally (but what do I know- pretty much the point of this blog), but it is capable of satisfying a wide range of tastes and moods anally.
