How to Pick the Right Dildo

Choosing a dildo is not as easy as it may appear. As many first timers eventually realize, the differences in the size, shape, material, color and type of dildo actually matter quite a lot – and if you want to pick the right one you need to take quite a few factors into account.

How to Pick the Right Dildo

Some of the factors that are going to play a part in choosing the right dildo include:

  • Size

Of all the factors that you need to consider when picking a dildo, size is probably the most important. Contrary to popular belief, bigger is not always better – and if it is too big it can hit the cervix or cause vaginal tearing. On the other hand if the dildo is too small – it won’t hit the spot.

At the end of the day only you really know the ideal size – something that you may be able to gauge from past experience. In general the girth of the dildo is more important than its length – so long as it is long enough you can control how much of it is inserted.

  • Material

Different materials have a different feel on the surface and also vary in flexibility. Most people are initially more comfortable with the authentic-feeling materials such as softskin, or even rubber, silicone, and jelly – all of which are also fairly flexible.

However rigid dildos made from glass and metal are fairly popular as well. Because they are smooth they tend to be easier to insert and require less lubricant. It is also worth noting that different materials require different types of care and cleaning.

  • Type (and shape)

Nowadays dildos come in numerous varieties – and tend to vary depending on how they are intended to be used. In general smooth dildos are designed to allow for easy insertion and penetration, whereas curved dildos are designed to help stimulate the G-spot.

Another key point to consider is whether you want a dildo that vibrates or not. If you do then you should pay attention to where the vibrations are coming from as it will help you to gauge their intensity. Assuming the vibrator is built into the dildo it should have a strong vibration, whereas if it comes from a small segment at the back then it will be a bit more muted.

Once you go over all these factors, you should be able to find a dildo that caters to your specific needs. Make no mistake all of this is still just scratching the surface – and if you feel adventurous you should certainly explore some of the more exotic and specialized dildos out there and see whether you’re interested in trying them out.
