How to choose a dildo?
Finding the perfect dildo might be challenging, especially when there are so many options with different sizes, shapes, colours, materials… here is our first tip: think about what you would like to use it for. Different dildos can be used to stimulate different areas and give you different sensations, like playing with temperature. Folks who are buying a dildo for the first time, might consider something small or medium size that can be used in different ways (aka experimenting by trial) for example. If you're looking for G-spot stimulation you could try a dildo made of a firm material like metal or glass that has a curved angle. The same goes if you want a dildo for anal play; to use on a harness; to use with a partner...
One of the most important characteristics to take into consideration when choosing a dildo is the size, if it is too small it won't even hit the spot, too big and you might never use it again. Here is our best tip: think about what you enjoy in penetrative sex. Do you like a deep penetration? Or maybe you like the feeling of being stretched by something larger? To give you some perspective, the average size of an erected penis is 5".
Another thing to consider when choosing the size of your dildo is if you are using on a harness or strap-on. A longer dildo can give you extra options with positions without slipping out.
A phallic shape (aka penis-like) is a very popular shape for dildos, but not the only one. Dildos can have many shapes with different textures that will give you different sensations as you use it. Some dildos have an angle - these ones are great for g-spot or prostate stimulation. Another thing to consider when thinking about the shape is the base of the dildo. Some have a suction base, or balls, or a larger base to fit on harnesses, or don't have anything at all. Some dildos are also double ended.
When it comes to sex toy’s materials, silicone is the most popular of all. Silicone dildos come in various densities, are flexible, normally have a velvety felling, are easy to clean, and are non-porous. But if silicone is not your things, there are other options such as jelly or elastomer, softskin, glass, wood, porcelain or metal.
Jelly and softskin dildos are very porous, which means the bacterias are still there even after you wash it. We recommend always using a condom, specially if you're sharing the toy with someone else.
Here are some of the options available for you to choose from:
They are generally made of soft materials and aim to look and feel as close to real thing as possible. They normally have balls, veins, and even a curvature to look like a real penis. The colours can vary from skin tones to the playful ones, like pink or a rainbow. One of our faves is the 5'' Dual from Ns Novelties.
In the world of silicone dildos, you will find all colours, shapes, and innovative designs, there is no doubt that this is the largest collection.
