What are Dildos?

Dildos are any sex toy designed for penetration. Most dildos come with a tapered tip and smooth shaft for easy penetration. But there are plenty with curved tips for your G-Spot and ridged shafts for extra stimulation. There are anal dildos for men and double dildos for lesbians. You can even find realistic dildos with penis-shaped tips and pairs of life-like balls too! And if you want extra stimulation, you can even find vibrating dildos for a thrilling buzz!

How to Buy Dildos

Now that you're familiar with the most popular kinds of dildos, it's time to do some serious shopping. Here's what you need to know about these sex toys before hitting the Add to Cart button.


Dildo Materials

Start With Materials.
Smart sex toy shoppers always start by picking a material for their dildo. The material influences how you use your sex toy and even how you care for it too. If you want something soft and flexible, get a dildo made with silicone, TPE or TPR. Glass and metal are good materials for dildos if you want something firmer that you can use for decades.

Dildo Budget

Plan Your Budget.
There are dildos out there for all types of budgets. You can buy a basic TPE dildo for a few bucks. Or you can spoil yourself with a giant vibrating dildo strong enough to rattle your bed.

Dildo Size

Determine the Size of Your Dildo.
This is one time when size really does matter. Before buying any dildo make sure to check its insertable dimensions. This is especially important if you're interested in giant dildos. You won't believe how many people order one of those and then send it back after seeing how big it really is.

How to Use Dildos

It's finally time to try out your new sex toy! Here's what you need to know before you get down and dirty with your dildo.


Using a Dildo

Get Ready.
Wash your dildo before using it for the first time. Then, find a comfortable place where you won't be disturbed so you can focus on enjoying your new sex toy.


Get Set.
Once everything's ready, apply some lube to your toy and yourself. Dildos aren't very good at foreplay, so even women need a little lube to get started.


Let's Go.
It's generally best to start out slow when you're breaking in a new sex toy. Gently tease yourself with the dildo, before focusing in on your pleasure points. After getting used to the toy, you can pick up the pace and go all out!

Cleaning & Caring for Dildos

Cleaning sex toys isn't nearly as bad as cleaning out the garage or washing the car. Here are three easy-to-remember rules to make cleaning and caring for your dildo even easier.


Dildo Cleaner

#1 Clean your toy before and after each use.
The easiest way to do this is by spraying it with antibacterial sex toy cleaner and then wiping it off with a lint-free towel. If you've got a vibrating dildo, you don't have to worry about damaging the motor.


#2 Stick to water-based lubes.
Water-based lubes are completely safe to use with all types of dildos as well as condoms. Other lubes can cause chemical reactions with some materials like silicone or rubber.


#3 Don't let your dildos touch.
Some materials can react badly if they come into contact with each other. It's best to keep your dildos in their own storage bag so you don't have to worry about your anal dildo bumping into your double dildo and becoming damaged.
