Dildo Buyer’s Guide for Beginners - A must read

Beginner's Buying Guide: Dildos

Shopping for a dildo seems easy enough – a piece of silicone, shaped to your desire, and that’s it! But what happens when you’re faced with hundreds of the jiggly prospect? Our guide will walk you through the wonderful, and intimidating world of dildo options.

How to choose the right dildo for you:

Dildo Size

Keep in mind, the average vagina is 3-4 inches deep, and when aroused, does expand to anywhere between 5-7 inches. As a vagina owner, if you’re entirely unsure about your own size preferences and are worried about what you can and can’t take, then use a toy to insert (at maximum arousal) and while it’s inside you, note with your fingers where it hits the outside of your vagina. Measure that, and there’s your maximum insertable length for dildo shopping. If you find yourself choosing between two sizes, go on the bigger side – you can always hold back on a too-big dildo, but nothing blue-balls you quite like a dildo that can’t quite reach that spot.
As for girth, consider how many fingers you insert, the girth of previous toys, and what you overall prefer. If you use toys already, then measure what you like the most, or hell, measure your partner!
 

Dildo Material

While there are other substances available such as jelly, cyberskin, and plastic, we have 2 very sexy options made from body-safe, hygienic, and non-porous materials…
 TANTUS Silk Medium SILICONE DILDO

Silicone

It’s the body-safe standard, especially in realistic dildos & dongs. Perfect if you’re looking for something completely safe & hygienic but with the natural squish & pliability of the real thing. Try COLOURS Dual Density 8 in. REALISTIC SILCONE DILDO for the ultimate realistic feel and our favourite Tantus Collection for a quality silicone experience.
 ICICLES NO. 28 - PINK TEXTURED GLASS DILDO

Glass

Glass may seem like a rigid, unpleasant substance, but it provides a whole new experience in pleasure. Glass dildos are great for anal pleasure, as well are zeroing in on the G-spot and prostate. Temperature play, non-porous, and sheer beauty; there really are no downsides to a glass toy!

Stainless Steel

If you thought glass was incredible, then metal will crank that pleasure to eleven. Cold to the touch, warm when you want it, and so much control that you can choose as much or as little pressure as you wish.
 

Dildo Shape & Type

Dildos come in all shapes and sizes, but here are a few popular categories to get you started…
COLOURS DUAL DENSITY 5 IN. REALISTIC SILCONE DILDO

Realistic Dildo

If it’s real dick you crave, you might consider one of our ultra-realistic dildos, complete with veins, testicles, and the right amount of squish - everything for a lifelike sex substitution! TANTUS Adam Super Soft REALISTIC SILCONE DILDO used the most premium silicone that feels exactly like the real deal, or Femme Funn TURBO BALLER 2.0 fun and veiny, realistic pleasure to your experience.

G-Spot Dildo

Zero in right on the sweet spot with G-spot targeted stimulation, like with Fun Factory’s thick, G-spotty FUN FACTORY Magnum SILICONE DILDO, which is great for this purpose, like the ever-famed Njoy Pure Wand - Stainless Steel Dildo, with its sharp G-spot curve in rigid and cool stainless steel.
 
Strap on dildos

Strap-On Dildo

If you’re planning to use your dildo for strap-on play, there are a few things to take into consideration. First, the base will most likely need to be flared in order to fit into a standard hardness like the Tantus “Bend Over” Beginner Strap-On Harness, or you may need a Vac-U-Lock compatible hole for a Vac-U-Lock Dual Density Starter Set
If it’s going to be used for pegging, then keep your partner’s preferences in mind – he may or may not want the girth to be on the smaller side, so talk about that first. Also for pegging, try to go for a dildo with a curve, allowing certain prostate stimulation in every thrust. We recommend the FUN FACTORY Limba Flex S FLEXIBLE SILICONE DILDO or the TANTUS Silk Medium SILICONE DILDO.
UPRIZE RISING 8 INCH VIBRATING REALISTIC DILDO - joujou.com.au

Vibrating Dildo

Looking for that full experience with a little something extra? No need to sacrifice one for the other – we have the best names in vibrating dildos! Real Feel Deluxe No. 5 line will keep you buzzing with their realistic look and suction cup base, while the FUN FACTORY Big Boss G5 XL VIBRATOR wants to give you a much more unreal experience.
