Dildo, Not Dil-don’t: How to Choose the Perfect Dong

How to choose a dong

With the advent of new technologies, the sex toy industry has exploded. The sky’s the limit when it comes to dildo design, and naughty toy makers have created a dildo for almost every desire. With so many options on the market, it’s hard to know which one to get. Here’s our handy guide on how to choose the dong of your dreams.

Identify Your Needs

Choosing the perfect dildo starts with deciding what you want to do with it. Below, we’ve compiled a short list of a few different types and what they’re good for:

  • Rigid (glass, metal): These toys are designed to firmly stimulate your sweet spot. They’re great for men or women, and they can be heated or cooled for an extra layer of sensation. They also come in a variety of interesting shapes, colors, and designs, so they’re just plain pretty.
  • Realistic: These are designed to simulate a real penis; they may come equipped with veins, balls, and realistic “skin,” which come together for an authentic experience.
  • Double Dong: Perfect for couples to use at the same time, these toys are extra long with a head on both ends.
  • Suction Cup: These are designed to suction to the wall, providing you with support and a hands-free experience.
  • Flared Base: A flared base is necessary if you’ll be using the toy for anal, since it prevents the toy from sliding in past the point of no return. They’re also ideal to use with a harness.

It’s also important to consider size and girth. Beginners should start with small toys and work their way up, while seasoned pros may prefer a larger, more challenging toy. Some materials work better with different sizes; small toys should be more rigid, while larger ones should have more give.

Price and Practicality

The less fun part of choosing the right dildo is finding one that suits your budget and your lifestyle. A cheaper toy may be right for your wallet, but it might not meet all of your sexual needs, while a more expensive one might break the bank. Further, it’s important to consider how easy your new toy will be to clean. Non-porous materials, like 100% silicone, glass, and metal are extremely easy to clean with soap and hot water, but porous materials, such as most silicone blends and plastics, will harbor bacteria if not cleaned thoroughly. You can use a condom on them, just to be safe.

This is by no means an exhaustive list of all the different options out there. We recommend experimenting! Try a starter dildo or two from our wide selection to get a feel for the differences. Contact us with any questions about our products, or to get a recommendation from the professionals.
