Dildos don’t always get the appreciation and recognition they sometimes deserve. They’re often overlooked by their sex toy brothers and sisters like the Vibrator and the Bullet. However, these bad boys can offer a whole array of pleasures for just about everyone, and when we say everyone, we literally mean everyone!

So, what is a dildo?

A dildo is an often-phallic shaped sex toy that can be inserted into the vagina, anus or mouth for sexual gratification. They come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes and are typically intended to penetrate your g-spot or p-spot (prostate).

Does the size matter?

We all know that each of us have different sized and shaped genital’s, both men and women know this fact. So yes, size can really matter as you want to get the right sexual satisfaction. Some of us might require a smaller penis or sex toy as larger ones can be uncomfortable, other people like them big so they hit the right spots. It’s about knowing yourself and what brings you pleasure; you might already have discovered what you prefer from previous sexual experiences or other sex toys. Dildos offer a huge flexibility in terms of size specifically for this reason; they can range from 5 inches to an enormous 18 inches.

Keep in mind, it’s not just the length to consider; the width of your dildo is just as important. If you get a dildo or a sex toys that’s too thick it can hurt and cause friction. It’s always recommended to use lubrication no matter size or shape dildo you choose.

Are they used specifically for strap on’s?

It’s strange actually how many people think this is the main and sole purpose of a dildo, while it’s a great one it’s not all they are intended for. You should know that you can’t use just any dildo in a strap on so if you’re looking to, make sure you get one that is harness compatible.

It’s also recommended for beginners to opt for Silicone dildos as they’re easier to insert and provide more comfort than some of the others available. A top pick of ours for newbies would be the Solid Love Premium Silicone Dildo 5 Inch Black
