How to Choose a Dildo

Realistic dildos

Choosing the dildo sex toy can be quite overwhelming. Basically, it boils down to a matter of preference. Dildos can be found in many colors, materials, shapes, sizes, styles, and textures.

Virtually all dildos are made out of the following materials: cyberskin, jelly or elastomer, metal, silicone, wood, or acrylic or glass. Just like any other sex toy, you'll find benefits and drawbacks to each material. Therefore, the more you know, the more likely you will pick the right dildo for you.


A tough and durable plastic, acrylic is obvious and looks like glass. The fabric is very strong and it is almost indestructible. Lots of people prefer acrylic since it is less expensive than glass and isn't porous, making it simple to clean.


Cyberskin is a blend of silicone and plastic, which ends up in the most realistic skin and flesh feeling material. This material becomes warm with use. Cyberskin's main disadvantage would it be is porous. So, it is sometimes complicated to clean and disinfect. When the sex toy is not looked after properly, it will become sticky and loose its realistic feel.


If you are looking for something hard, then glass is a great option. Since these adult toys are really firm, a lot of people go with a slightly smaller size. Most glass dildos are handheld only. Glass dildos are really simple to clean and last for quite a long time because they are not porous. Also, they are excellent for temperature play.


Jelly dildos are produced from a flexible rubber based material, and are smellier, stickier and not as smooth as silicone. They are also porous making them more difficult to clean and disinfect.


Metal is yet another excellent option if you prefer a hard dildo. Most metal dildos are made of medical-grade stainless steel. Like glass, these are easy to clean, are certainly not porous and are good for temperature play.


Dildos crafted from silicone are the most popular because of silicone's flexibility and skill to quickly adjust to body temperature.

Only buy 100% pure silicone dildos since they're non-porous and hypoallergenic, can be simply cleaned and disinfected, and are quite durable and will last for a very long time.

Silicone dildos appear in many sizes and shapes. Many of them are smooth and non-phallic looking, while others, like the realistic dildos, look similar to penises. Dildos can come with ridges or nubs for extra pleasure.

If the dildo carries a wide flat base it can be used in a dildo harness or for anal play. If you're planning on using a harness together with your dildo, please note that about ½ inch in the length will taken up by the harness.

Hand-held dildos are designed to be used for solo play (especially G-spot stimulation) or for people who like penetration but aren't interested in using a dildo harness.

If you need added stimulation, some silicone dildos will comw with with a bullet vibrator, which vibrates throughout the entire toy.


If you want a hard dildo, a wood dildo is yet another excellent option. NobEssence makes the best wood dildos since the wood they use arises from sustainable forests which is finished with a medical-grade polymer coating. Like glass and metal, wood dildos are really simple to clean, are not porous, and so are excellent for temperature play.


Curved dildos are excellent for G-spot or prostate play. If the toy has ridges or bumps, it will be too big and uncomfortable for anal play since anus is much more sensitive as opposed to vagina.

Double dildos allow each partner to be penetrated as well. Doubled-sided dildos can be used with or without a harness.


Dildo dimension is very important. If it is too small, then it won't hit the proper spot. If it is too big, it might be too intimidating so you probably won't use it. One easy way to gauge what size dildo you think works for you is to consider a partner's penis or possibly a toy that has proved helpful in the past. However, since even the most aroused penis becomes firmer and softer during sexual intercourse, it's only a rough estimate.

If you're still unsure in what size might work for you, consider how many fingers it is possible to comfortably insert into yourself or maybe your partner.

Now that know more about dildos, you'll be sure to find one that strikes your fancy. Enjoy yourself!
