How to choose a dildo? Wow, this is a difficult question to answer. With so many dildos to choose from, this can be overwhelming!
As described in different types, dildos come in various shapes and sizes. They have different styles and designs that can grab your attention in all the right places. They don't have to vibrate for fun.
To find the perfect dildo, you must first ask yourself, "What do I want?" Do you want to try something that can stimulate your G-spot? Then, you should try to use glass or metal material with a slight angle or bend, so as not to easily touch the G point. If you want anal sex with a penis stick, you need something that is easy to clean, and a flared base prevents insertion.
After you determine the conditions you need, you can choose from the following additional conditions:
If you like the feeling of fullness, then I suggest you start with 1.5 inches at most. If you feel like the feeling of it hitting a certain spot and especially if you’re a beginner in sex and sex toys, just go for the ones with the 1 inch or 1.25 inches diameter.
In choosing the perfect dildo, the material is important. Yes, the sex toy market has been creative with their dildo-making business. But most dildos are made from four main materials: jelly or elastomer, silicone, softskin or acrylic or glass. Each kind has its own advantages and disadvantages. The more you learn about each one, the easier your choice will be.
Jelly or Elastomer
Jelly dildos are cheap which makes them an affordable option for those who’ve never tried dildos before and would like a “tester” version. They vary in quality and price. The downside is that they’re very difficult to clean since they’re quite porous. As such, it is highly recommended that you use a condom every time you play with a jelly or elastomer dildo. Aside from this, they’re also too flexible and you might be the type who wants it rock solid inside you. This kind of dildo also smells strongly of plastic when they’re new. But of course, that would go as soon as you’ve used them enough.
They don’t last that long, though. Thus, they’re the perfect choice for you if you’re looking for something that won’t last forever and you want something inexpensive. They’re really just “tester” dick wands.
If you want to choose a realistic dildo, softskin is the one for you. As what its name suggests, this is made from remarkably realistic material and it feels frickin’ amazing. It’s got the right blend of firm and flexible similar to a real penis. So it really feels like a real dick.
Cleaning it is a different story, though. Like the jelly one, softskin is hard to clean. It is porous, so you really need to use it with a condom. And even after you wash and dry it, it gets sticky. To deal with this, you have to store your softskin dildo in a plastic bag or you can dust it with cornstarch.
If you opt for cornstarch, the easiest way is to put the dildo in a paperbag and put a spoonful of cornstarch then shake it up. Just be sure to wash it off before using it again. Cornstarch absorbs lubrication and it gets gritty. You don’t want that in your pussy, girl. Another word of advice: Never use talcum powder as a substitute for cornstarch. Talcum powder has been linked with ovarian cancer.
Silicone dildos are definitely the most popular type of dick wands. They’re flexible and quickly adapt to body temperature. They also come in different shapes and textures from simple ones to curved, bumpy or vibrating.
Its popularity also comes from its easy-to-clean feature. Unlike the other dildos, silicone ones are non-porous and hypoallergenic. It is also quite durable. So even if it’s a bit pricey, it would last long if you use it and maintain it carefully enough. Make sure that the surface doesn’t get punctured. Once that happens, the rip will spread until your toy falls apart. Buh-bye thousand pesos. Make sure that you keep your toys away from sharp fingernails, edges of counters and yes, pets!
To clean your silicone dildo, soap and water will be okay. If you want to bring it up a notch, you can put it in boiling water for 3-5 minutes. You can also use 10% bleach in cleaning it for 15 minutes. Please know that no matter how easy-to-clean silicone dildos are, wiping it with alcohol or hydrogen peroxide will not disinfect it.
Glass and Acrylic
If you’re like me and you like some good hard solid dick inside your vagina, then choose a glass or acrylic dildo. It is the perfect one for you. Glass or acrylic dildos are really firm. Thus, many people prefer the slightly smaller size because the firmer it is, the bigger it feels. As much as you think you want it big, you don’t wanna wreck your vagina, amirite?
Most acrylic or glass dildo are handheld only. They don’t have a wide base, they are not mountable or you can use them with a strap-on, So if you’re feeling lazy, maybe you should try another type. If you have a partner though, then this is a great choice. They’re also very easy to clean like silicone ones. Soap and water are good enough for this kind of dildos. However, acrylic ones can’t be washed in warm or hot water ‘cause it can cause micro-crack on the surface and may cloud the toy. On the other hand, glass can take the heat. This means they can be boiled or put through the dishwasher and they’re really durable and resist breakage.
Once the required dimensions and materials have been determined, the shape can be determined. Do you want the dildo to hit the G spot? Your dildo should then have a curved tip. Do you want larger or thinner shapes? Or do you want to bend or straighten the shaft? Figuring out what you want a dildo to do will help you determine which shape you should choose.
Just as you prefer a textured condom, so is a dildo. Some dildos are smooth. They can be easily inserted without the help of a lubricant. However, some people prefer a textured dildo. They exude a different kind of pleasure. Textures include ripples, swirls, bumps, ridges, veins and more. If you think you can improve your experience by adding some extra textures, choose a dildo with ridges and small pieces or other textures.
It may not seem significant at first. But the base of a dildo can affect how you use it. If your dildo doesn’t have a flared base then you can’t use it for anal penetration or with a strap-on. Many dildo users also swear by the good handhold provided by a flared base. Better handhold means harder thrusting capabilities. Other dildos are completely hands-free via suction cups. It would really depend on how you’re planning to use it.
What have you decided?
Dildo comes in all shapes, sizes, colors, materials and designs, whether imaginable or unimaginable. So how to choose a dildo? Well, you can think carefully about the list of conditions we mentioned first! Indulge in the various dildos on the market, letting you indulge in the strangest fantasy. You can use it for solo or with your partner. However, no matter how you plan to use the dildo, always remember to start safely and start slowly.
