Dildos FAQs

What Are Dildos?

When it comes to sex toys, dildos are among the most popular. They are non-vibrating objects that can be used for penetration and internal massage. They can be anatomically designed to look like penises or they can resemble nothing more than a hard cylinder. They can be made of many different materials, including silicone, glass, plastic, and metal. They are also available in a variety of shapes and sizes, and can be curved to stimulate the g-spot or prostate.

Dildos can be inserted into the mouth, anus, or vagina. They are popular with people of all gender identities and sexual orientations. They can be used for pleasure alone or with a partner, and have the potential to increase intimacy in committed relationships.

Some people are uncomfortable using dildos because they worry that the object will replace their own erection. This is a common concern, but is unfounded as studies have shown that dildos do not reduce oropharyngeal penetration or anal sensitivity.

The term dildo was coined in Renaissance Italy from the Italian word for delight. It was first referenced in Pietro Aretino’s Dialogues, a text widely considered the father of modern pornography.

The popularity of dildos has expanded to include a variety of accessories, such as harnesses (also known as strap-on harnesses). These are devices that hold a packer or dildo against the body, similar to a jock strap or underwear. They can be worn on the thigh, hip, or other parts of the body. Harnesses are often used for anal lubrication or to keep the dildo in place during sex play.

How To Use Your Dildo?

There are many ways to enjoy a dildo, from masturbation to sex with a partner. But before you buy one, consider how you plan to use it, as this will help you choose a type that’s appropriate for your needs. For example, you’ll want a silicone dildo for your first time since it will be easier to clean and won’t introduce bacteria that can lead to infections such as a sore throat or urinary tract infection (UTI).

Once you have your dildo, lubricate it with water-based sex toy lube to make it more comfortable upon insertion. Then, start off with some manual stimulation – caress the anus and clitoris and see what kind of sensations it feels like. From there, you can move on to other techniques such as writhing around with it or running it over your clit.

The most satisfying way to pleasure your G Spot is by gently milking it with the tip of your dildo. But you also can try squeezing or twisting it to see what kind of pressure feels good. Remember that your sensations will vary based on things like your menstrual cycle, health and stress.

You can also play with the temperature of your toy by warming it up and then rubbing it over your anus or clit. This will increase the sexiness of your dildo experience as well as the pleasure it delivers to your body. And don’t be afraid to experiment with different dildo uses – you may find that something your friend swears by doesn’t feel right for you, and that’s okay!

What’s the Difference Between Dildos and Vibrators?

Dildos and vibrators are both sex toys used for pleasure, but they serve slightly different purposes. While dildos are usually meant to be inserted into the vagina or anus, vibrators are designed to be used externally during solo play or with a partner. Some vibrators may resemble penis-shaped objects, while others are shaped like tentacles or flowers. The main difference between a dildo and a vibrator is that the former can’t vibrate on its own, whereas the latter requires battery power for its functionality.

Despite their differences, both dildos and vibrators offer various ways to stimulate a person’s erection. They are available in a wide variety of shapes, sizes and materials to cater to individual preferences. They also come in a variety of colors and textures to add extra sensual excitement. Some dildos have curved ends that make them ideal for thrusting while others are made to be inserted in the g-spot or prostate.

There are pros and cons to both dildos and vibrators, but personal preference is the most important factor to consider. Some people prefer the convenience of vibrators, while others may find a deep sense of satisfaction with dildos. Whatever toy is chosen, it’s worth remembering that owning sex toys doesn’t replace real intimacy in relationships and should be used as an additional form of pleasure.

What’s more, a dildo is body-safe and doesn’t require battery power to operate. They can also be easier to clean and disinfect. In addition, dildos often have a more natural feel than vibrators and can help to increase anal penetration. Moreover, using a dildo can lead to a deeper sense of self-exploration and assist in understanding sexual desires.

How to Play With Dildos Safely?

There are a lot of different ways to play with dildos — they can be used for anal, vaginal, and penile penetration, and come in all shapes and sizes. If you're thinking about trying a new toy for pleasure, it's important to choose the right one for your body and to make sure that you're using it safely. We spoke to a few experts (including Georgina Di Mattos, co-founder of sexual wellness and medical brand iPlaySafe, and Ness Cooper, a clinical sexologist who writes about sex toys for Marie Claire) to get their tips on choosing, cleaning, and using dildos for optimal pleasure.

Start by choosing a nonporous material. The anus and vulva are absorbent, so porous sex toys (like those made from silicone) can hold bacteria, fungus, or other gunk. That's why it's best to stick with a nonporous dildo made from glass, stainless steel, or medical-grade silicone (and only if you shop at reputable retailers).

For extra safety, you should also make sure that the dildo is properly cleaned and disinfected before and after use. You can do this by soaking it in alcohol or boiling water for several seconds, or by running it through the toilet and flushing it afterward.

Finally, you should always add lube before inserting the toy. Not only will this help it feel smoother, but it'll create a barrier between the toy and your skin so that you can wipe it down easily afterward. You can choose from a variety of lubes, but we suggest getting a water-based one because oils could degrade some materials and are also difficult to clean.

What Are Dildos Made Of?

As you browse sex toys online, you’ll find that they come in a wide variety of shapes, sizes and materials. While glass, metal and medical-grade silicone are the best options for body-friendly dildos, many sex toys are manufactured using plastic, PVC, wood, rubber, latex and jelly.

Most dildos are made by molding, which is safe and efficient for creating a variety of shapes. This type of molding can produce dildos out of not only silicone – the number one most popular material – but also foam, realistic CyberSkin, several varieties of plastic and jelly-like elastomer.

While there are a lot of different options for dildos, the most common shape is a cylinder with a rounded tip. This shape is ideal for stimulating the clitoral hood and vaginal canal as well as the anal canal. Some dildos are designed to be used alone, while others are meant to be inserted into a harness to create a pack or bulge (also known as a “packer”).

It’s important to keep in mind that most reputable sex toy manufacturers want to make products that are safer and healthier for their customers, Fine says. That means that they’re likely only using materials that have been deemed body-safe and are easy to clean, including hygienic plastics such as ABS or polyurethane, which is softer than hard plastics. However, cheaper sex toys may still be made with phthalates-leaching jelly-like silicone and PVC, as well as other porous materials that are difficult to sterilize.

A common material for dildos, glass is incredibly versatile. It can be molded to create a variety of shapes and colors, and it is easy to add fun add-ons like ridge twists or knots. These features can be added to the surface of the dildo or to its interior, adding texture and stimulation to the user. Glass dildos are typically made from boron trioxide and silica, and they are hypoallergenic, reusable, and compatible with all types of lubricants.

While metal is a less traditional choice for dildos, it is a durable, reliable material that can be produced in a very high heat. Similar to how pots and pans are often forged using intense amounts of heat, dildos can be "baked" in specific high-heat ovens to form them into their desired shape and size. The result is a sturdy, resistant to temperature changes and reusable material that can be produced in a wide range of shapes and sizes suitable for both beginners buying their first dildos and extreme enthusiasts looking to stretch themselves with new options.

What Are Realistic Dildos?

Realistic dildos are what most people think of when they hear the term "dildo." They look like actual penises and can be big, small, veiny or smooth, colorful or subdued. Some are even molded after a specific person's cock (which is what many male pornstars use).

There are different types of realistic dildos depending on your needs and desires. Most dildos are made of a type of silicone that's body-safe, easy to clean, and durable enough to last for years. Some also have special features like vibrating options, ejaculating capabilities and/or strap-on harnesses.

Most realistic dildos are safe to use in anal play, but you should always be sure to use plenty of water-based lube. This is because most realistic dildos are made with soft skin that's molded over a hard center, so excessive pressure or aggressive handling could pull the outer layer away from the inner core and expose bacteria.

Some people like to use realistic dildos as oral practice, whether it's because they plan on having sex soon and want to be prepared, or because they're exploring a part of their vagina that's never been penetrated before. It's easy to learn to pleasure yourself with a realistically cock-shaped object in your mouth, and it can be extra fun when you add a little texture.

Some people also use realistic dildos as props in masturbation routines. This can be as simple as kneeling below a camera for a POV blowjob scene, or as elaborate as sprawling out on the bed and affixing the toy to a wall with suction cups for bouncing.

How To Clean Your Dildo?

Keeping your sex toys clean isn’t just hygienic, it’s essential. If you don’t properly wash your sex toys, they’ll quickly become coated in your and your partner’s bodily fluids which can cause an array of unpleasant symptoms including a yeast infection (or, as it’s sometimes called, Bacterial Vaginosis).

Non-porous materials like silicone, glass and stainless steel last longer, are easier to clean and, according to Gigi Engle, certified sex coach, sexologist, sex educator and Womanizer sex expert, help protect you against potentially dangerous diseases such as chlamydia and herpes. Porous sex toys, on the other hand, have microscopic pores which can fill up with lube and microbes. As the sex toy is used, the bacteria from these orifices and lube can then get trapped underneath the surface of the material, which means even if you wipe it down, the bacteria may remain, leading to an STI like herpes or an invasive vaginal infection like BV.

Luckily, many toys are made from durable and easy to clean material such as 100% silicone which is hypoallergenic, phthalate-free and can be submerged in boiling water for three minutes (longer than that and you risk warping the toy) or run through the dishwasher to sanitize. But if your toy has any motor or electronic parts, such as a vibrator or remote control, you need to pay extra close attention to the waterproof ratings – you might not be able to dunk it at all, or even if you can, it might not be safe to put in the microwave.

How Do You Store Your Dildo?

Keeping your pleasure toys clean is important, but it's also vital to properly store them when you're done using them. Doing so keeps the toy in a good condition and prevents it from collecting bacteria or becoming moldy. If you don't have a storage option like a drawer or bin designed for your sex toys, try hiding them in some other unobtrusive spot. For example, many women use the bottom of their sock drawer to keep their smaller dildos and vibrators, as people rarely go digging in there. Some jackets can also serve as a discreet storage place for sex toys, especially those with zip pockets.

If you have a larger collection and want to keep your dildos and other toys out of sight, you can always invest in a specially designed storage solution. There are sex toy boxes on the market that have special coatings to keep the interior hygienic and safe from harmful things like germs. There are even products that have a drying rack in them for after you clean your toys so they can air dry without being seen by prying eyes.

Alternatively, you can try making your own sex toy storage container out of a plastic bin with a lid, or you can look for sex-toy-specific containers like the one below. It's designed to be as discreet as possible, but it still has room for a few dildos and other toys, plus it comes with a lock to keep it secure from those who don't need to see your toys.
