The Ultimate Guide to Choosing the Perfect Dildo

Whether you’re shopping for yourself or your partner, a dildo provides a range of experiences just waiting to be enjoyed - the only limit is your imagination! There are so many sizes and types of dildos to enjoy. This guide will help you learn the differences and find a dildo suitable to you.

What is a dildo?

These versatile sex toys are phallic like objects that look and often feel like an erect penis. Dildos are designed for penetration and can be used in a number of ways, no matter your gender, sexual desire or preference.

What are the different types of dildos?

Size is not the only choice you need to make when selecting the perfect dildo. You also need to decide on the style, such as a realistic dildo, strap on dildo, suction cup dildo or a vibrating dildo, and also the material, such as a glass dildo or silicone.

Styles of Dildos

As mentioned previously, you need to decide what the dildo will be used for. Designed for penetration, dildos can be used vaginally or anally. Do you want the dildo to look like a real penis, or do you want a G-spot dildo which is curved to provide extra stimulation. Our most popular dildos include:

Realistic Dildos

Realistic dildos feature all of the textures, sizes and colours of the lifelike penises you know and love. Keep in mind, some partners can feel jealous or uncomfortable when using realistic dildos in the bedroom, so have an open discussion about non-realistic dildos as an alternative.

Material Type of Dildos

The most common body-safe dildo materials include silicone, glass and rubber, which are 100% latex free. Which material you enjoy most will come down to personal preference. If you enjoy a silky-smooth feel, you will prefer a silicone dildo, and if you prefer soft, lifelike sensations, you will enjoy the rubber. Others crave the cool solidity of a glass dildo or don for heavier duty fun and games. 

Please see more information on the different material types of dildos below.

Glass Dildos

A glass dildo is made from solid borosilicate glass, ensuring it’s durable against cracking or chipping. G-spot and P-spot owners alike generally love the smooth hardness of glass sex toys, as well as the temperature play. You can place the dildo in a bowl of cold or hot water to ignite sensitive areas. Keep in mind, when experimenting with temperature play, test the dildo against your hand before inserting.

Silicone Dildos 

These sex toys are made from 100% medical grade silicone, a perfect skin sensitive option. Silicone dildos can be firm, but their smooth plush surface feels like sensual body contact. Keep in mind, do not mix silicone lube and silicone toys as the lube can break down the silicone surface of your dildo. View our range of personal lubricants.

Rubber Dildos 

Rubber dildos are a more affordable alternative to soft silicone dildos, and are made from thermoplastic elastomer/rubber. This material provides a realistic firmness, yet flexibility to the dildo’s shaft. Keep in mind, rubber dildos have pores that bacteria can settle into, so it’s crucial to clean after use and use a condom when sharing. Tips on cleaning are mentioned in the following section “how to use a dildo”.

Dildo Sizes

The size of your dildo is extremely important as the longer the dildo, the larger the girth. Some dildos are small for the sex toy beginner and others are big dildos for the sex toy lover. If you’re a beginner, we recommend starting with a maximum insertable length of 6-7 inches, and up to 5 inches in girth.

Keep in mind, before buying a dildo online, measure vegetables for a rough guide on how big your ideal dildo is. Ready to find your perfect dildo? Shop our range of anal dildos for men and dildos for women.

How to choose the right dildo

Now that you’ve read through the different types, materials and sizes of dildos, you need to consider how you want to use the dildo.

  • “I want it to feel like the real thing” - consider a realistic dildo
  • I want to try penetrating” - consider a strap-on harness
  • Sometimes the only way to know is to experiment!

    How to use a dildo

    Here are a few simple steps when using your dildo:

    1. Clean your toy with anti-bacterial toy cleaner and warm water (before and after use). Browse our sex toy cleaners.
    2. Warm yourself up by thinking of an intimate memory, watching some adult videos or stimulating your other erogenous zones, such as nipples and butt plug play. View our range of butt plugs for women and butt plugs for men. If you are preparing for anal play, it is extremely important that you warm yourself up by wearing a small butt plug to prepare your body for the larger toys.
    3. Lubricate yourself and the dildo to reduce friction and ensure a more comfortable, pleasurable experience. As mentioned above, make sure you choose a lubricant that is compatible with your dildo’s material. Waterbased lube is recommended as it’s universal.
    4. Start slowly inserting the dildo, beginning with the tip of the head and then inching in the shaft. It’s ok if it takes multiple attempts to insert the dildo. The good thing about a dildo is it’s always ready for play, and won’t go soft on you.

    Why are dildos so popular?

    Dildos are many people’s first sex toy, allowing you to explore your sexuality in the privacy of your own body. As perfect as they are for solo play, they’re great to share as well.
