If you think all dildos are the same, think again! Like every other sex toy, dildos come in a wide variety of styles, colors, shapes, sizes, and materials. For anyone who enjoys penetration — anal, vaginal, or oral — and wants a sex toy to make it happen, the right dildo makes all the difference.
If you’re not sure what kind of dildo you want, check out these seven types. You’ll find one that will work best for your biggest sexual desires and fantasies.
Dildos made of silicone come in every size, shape, and design. They can be made to look like a real penis or like something from out of this world. When made with high quality silicone, these dildos tend to last a long time. They’re also easy to keep clean and offer the most versatility for use. If you’re sharing your sex toy or want something that will last as long as possible, look for silicone.
Glass dildos are very popular with dildo lovers and for good reason. It’s easier to clean and use. Even better, it holds onto temperature very well which allows you to add a bit of fun and sensation to the moment. Run your glass dildo under hot water for a few minutes or put it in the refrigerator for a while, and learn whether you prefer hot or cold on your most sensitive parts.
One of the most common options, realistic dildos give you everything but the partner attached. Depending on the style you choose, that dong will have balls, veins, and whatever flesh tone you love most. But if you really want a candy-colored dildo, many are still made to feel as real as possible. This lets you fantasize and add a touch of realism to the moment.
There’s nothing wrong with being a size queen or king, especially when you can just buy whatever size you like most. Huge dildos can be intimidating if you’re not used to them, but for those who love them, they’ll fill you up, stretch your body to new limits, and give you a challenge to overcome. Just remember to add plenty of lube and take your time when you play with these big toys.
Porn Star Dildos
Porn is supposed to be pure sexual fantasy, so it’s no wonder that plenty of us are happy to imagine our favorite adult stars while we get off. With a porn star dildo, you can take it a step further and actually pretend you’re the one under or on top of your favorite adult star. Most of the time, these dildos really are made from molds of the person you’re lusting after, so it’s as close to the real thing as you may ever get.
Almost any dildo can be a strap-on dildo, but if you’re looking for a way to penetrate your partner, you need a dildo that’s right for their body. For anal sex or pegging, start with smaller, thinner dildos at first and work up to larger sizes. For vaginal penetration, use whatever your partner loves best that will fit in the harness. If you’re new to strap-on sex, look for kits that include both the harness and dildo to get started.
While not a common type of dildo many people buy, hollow dildos definitely have their place in the penetration line-up. This is especially true if you’re someone who has to deal with erectile dysfunction or any disability that makes it difficult or impossible to get an erection. Instead of skipping penetrative fun, a hollow dildo is made to fit over your penis so you and your partner can have the kind of sex you’ve been missing. Make sure you have lube for yourself on the inside and for your partner as well. Neither of you should have to deal with unpleasant friction in the name of penetration.
Dildo lovers don’t usually stop at one or even two dildos in their sex toy collection. Because different dildos create different sensations and fulfill different needs, it’s not unusual to have multiple styles, sizes, colors, and types. Whether you’re new to buying dildos or you’re looking to grow your collection, understanding what your options are helps you find exactly what works best for you.
