Knowing the Differences Between Dildos

Knowing the Differences Between Dildos

Believe it or not, the dildo is not a modern concept. As a matter of fact, its origins are as old as civilization itself. When the ruins of Pompeii were in the process of being excavated, archaeologists were surprised to see that many murals pictured many depictions of phalluses, which the Romans considered a sign of good luck and fertility. And while their materials and styles were somewhat limited, it does prove that even one of the greatest empires in history was adept at loving itself in a multitude of ways. 

While you might be familiar with the concept of a dildo, you might not be aware of the several variations that exist. Made from silicone, glass, plastic, and even metal, it’s time to do some exploration of our own. 

The Varieties of Ecstasy 

Representational & Non-Represtentaional – These two subgroups classify a great many dildos. As you can probably tell by the name, the former of this kind is meant to mimic the erect penis in size, scope, and feel. Many that have been made today are quite intricate in their details. The latter of these two categories, while still influential in the realms of providing pleasure, have a shape that’s not meant to look life-like. 

Vibrating – As the name suggests, vibrating dildos have the advantage of being able to penetrate and stimulate. No matter what your mood might be, you’re guaranteed to be satisfied.

Suction Cup – Ideal for anal play when you’re having a night of flying solo. These can be mounted on walls, allowing you to back up or go face forward into the heights of self-induced pleasure. 

Strap-On – This is where the fun really begins to ramp up. If you’re looking to take on a dominant role with a willing participant, the step-on dildo will endow you with the advantage of having a member. Also wonderful for willing boys who don’t mind being pegged. 

Double-Ended – While many depictions of the double-ended dildo in pornographic films feature its use between two people, this can also be used solo to penetrate two orifices at the same time. Talk about a win-win situation!
