Materials used in Dildos Manufacturing

It is recommended to only buy Body-safe material made Sex Toys especially those with which you have to penetrate yourself. The safest materials you should buy Dildos in are Silicone, ABS-Plastic, Wood, Metal, and Glass.

Any other material including jelly, Latex, PVC, TPR/TPE, or Cyber-skin made Dildos can be highly contagious and cause allergies or infections due to their porous material. As pores can not be cleaner=d properly and bacteria can colonize in those pores.

How Do Dildos Work? 

The working of Dildos varies with each type. If you are looking forward to clitoral stimulation by using Dildos then it might come as a little disappointment to you as the Dildos do not have more to offer than an actual penis in clitoral stimulation.

But as a vulva owner, using Dildos can fulfill your sexual desires and gain sexual pleasures. You can rub the Dildos on your vulva and use a vibrator at the same time for clitoral stimulation. In this regard, vibrating Dildos can prove very helpful. You can use it for clitoral stimulation as well as used it to grind yourself by hitting G-spot and reaching the climax more intensely.

Anal Dildos are also available for those who have fetishes about anal penetration or anal play. The diverse range of sizes, kinds, designs, and shapes make the whole process of anal sex more pleasurable and intimate.

Shortly put, Dildos are not vibratory (except Vibrating Dildos) and one has to thrust and grind it as much as deeper they want to go and at their own pace. Dildos are perfect for G-spot, P-spot, A-spot, and vulva stimulation if you will do it properly. But do not forget about thrusting Dildos which you can control by just a single press of the remote button or single touch on your mobile screen.

How to use a Dildo?

Using Dildos might seem intimidating at first because you are your own controller if engage in Solo sexual pleasure. But in partner play, it all depends on your partner how he/she will turn you on with these artificial penises.

  1. When using the Dildos, the most important first step is to lubricate yourself.Use the material compatible Lube in a generous amount. Use the lube on your vaginal area as well as on the dildo to heighten the sensation and make the whole penetration process more comfortable and easier.
  2. When you are done with the lubrication, don’t directly thrust the Dildo inside the vagina as it will give you no pleasure but pain. Instead, start patiently with slow strokes. Rubbing the Dildo up and down your vulva before inserting it in can prove helpful and elevate the feeling of an orgasm building in the body.
  3. When you are naturally wet enough, the muscles of your vagina are now ready for the penetrative process. So, slowly start inserting the Dildos inside. Keep it slow at first and then you can build up your pace as much as you want.
  4. If you aim to get pleasure by anal penetration, always choose Anal Dildos because these have a slightly larger base at the end to hold it while stroking. Because unlike Vagina the butt hole has no ending and your dildo can get lost inside. Also, use lube in a generous amount on both the anal area and on Dildo. Keep the strokes slow initially and when you are stimulated enough you are free to increase the pace as much as you want.

How to Clean, Care, and Storage a Dildo?

After-play care is highly important in the case of Dildos as when not cleaned properly can cause STIs and genitals infection especially if these are in use of more than one person (Like two partners sharing the same Dildo).

  • To properly clean your Dildo, nothing is a better choice than an anti-bacterial soap or lathers especially made for Sex Toy cleaning.If your Dildo can be washed directly under water then don’t hesitate in doing so. Rub and Scrub the toy thoroughly underwater and also clean it with soap or whatever lather you have.
  • If using battery-powered Dildos,you can’t wash it directly underwater, you can use Sex Toy cleaning Sprays or use the wet cloth to clean the excess after usage.
  • Drying is most important. So, tap dry your Dildos with a dry toweland leave them on a dry surface to further let the moisture evaporate from the toy.
  • When completely cleaned and dried, store the Dildo carefully in the packaging it comes in or in a dry safe place where it is inaccessible to anyone, especially children.

How to choose the best Dildo for you? 

Choosing the right sex toy is always difficult as lots and lots of options can confuse you and search through them seems like a daunting task. That’s why it is important to talk with your partner about things before purchasing one.

1. Think about your needs and desires

Think about what you want? What kind of pleasure you are looking forward to experiencing with the Dildo you are going to purchase?

2. Looking forward to Anal Stimulation?

If yes, then always go for Dildos with a slightly pointed end and a larger base to make the handling easy during penetration.

3. Do you want the Dildo to feel like a real Penis or it doesn’t concern you?

Are you the kind of person who wants a realistic touch to the sex toy you are using? Then shop for Realistic Dildos available in different sizes. These look like a real penis and resemble them a lot as it comes with a pair of testicles and veins popping underneath the skin.

If you just want something to just penetrate yourself with a penis-like toy, a little stretchy but still hard, and “Realistic” is something you don’t care about then go for Silicone-made Dildos. As the Silicone material will give the firmness and softness just like penises.

4. Want all hard and Smooth penetration?

Then opt for Glass or Metal made dildos as they are completely firm and hard. Some people find this hardness a turn-on. So, if you are one of them, don’t hesitate and buy these luxurious-looking Glasses and Metal made dildos.

5. Want to handle the Dildo yourself or a strap-on or Thrusting motor is necessary?

Also, decide the handling of Dildo! Do you want to thrust the dildo on your own? If yes then go ahead and buy regular dildos but if no, then there is always a choice of Thrusting dildos for you which comes with the in-built motor to mimic the real penis strokes during penetration.

In partner play, using a harness or strap-on can be a major turn-on for your partner. Or if you want your partner to use Strap-on then you have multiple options available on the internet as well as in your sex toys shop to opt for your desired one.

6. Want Vibrations for clitoral stimulation too?

When using the first time, don’t buy huge dildos. Always buy small dildos first to get used to the feeling and usage of these sex toys. When you are comfortable and knowledgeable enough about using Dildos, upgrade to the larger size and keep fulfilling your sexual fantasies.

Safety precautions for using a Dildo

  • Don’t go harsh and fast in partner play especially when you are not at the receiving end. Keep communicating with your partner and ask them if they are comfortable with the pace and depths of the strokes.
  • Don’t use Porous material made-Dildos like Latex, PVS, TPR, etc. as it can accumulate bacteria and cause serious infections to your genital and anal area.
  • Don’t use Dildos without the material compatible lube. And apply the lube in a generous amount. Because the wetter it would be down there, the easier, comfortable, and pleasing it would be to experience the Dildos penetration.
  • Don’t use huge dildos if you are a beginner.
  • Don’t forget to clean your Dildo before and after usage to prevent any kind of infections to occur
  • Don't use the non-anal dildos for Anal penetration as the proper base is necessary for proper hold on anal dildos. Otherwise, it can go all inside because the anuses have no ending like vaginas.

Homemade & DIY a Dildo and Safety Considerations

If it's clean and safe to use material, then a homemade Dildo is safe to use. There are kits available on the internet which you can use to mold your own Dildo. This can be a creative way to explore your sexual fantasies and satisfy your sexual desires.

But don’t use any non-sterile material as a makeshift Dildo because you don’t know what kind of germs the surface of that object holds. Even when cleaned properly, you never know if the material is compatible and safe enough to go inside your body. 

Like we always said, anything which feels like it can fit inside your vagina doesn’t mean it is meant to go inside your vagina!

But again, your imagination is the limit in case of gaining sexual pleasures and you are allowed to explore your body and desires. If you do want to use homemade items as Dildos, don’t grab something sharp, pointed, and which has surface pointers. Grab a smooth and non-porous object and make sure it is properly cleaned before use.

Bottom Line

Now it's all on you and your imagination to get benefits and pleasures from these magical little sex toys.
