What is a dildo?
Dildos are a favorite of men and women alike, their existence dating back several millennia. When women become sexually aroused the vagina balloons and the uterus elevates; and it is only normal for some women to wish to feel the fullness of penetration. This does not mean that a dildo should be regarded as a surrogate for the penis, as a dildo can take on many different shapes and sizes. A dildo is a sexual toy that is many things to many women. For men, a dildo can offer stimulation of the prostate -a sensation similar to orgasm- when used anally. Both hetero- and homosexual men use dildos for self-pleasure and with their partners.
Why would I want to use a dildo?
Dildos are a completely different form of penetration. They allow the person being penetrated to be in complete control of the range, speed and type of motion as well as the angle of penetration. Dildos have many benefits, only one of which is the pleasure of stimulating the vagina or anus. This section is designed to illustrate the various intriguing aspects of dildos.
Dildos have a certain customized property which is unmatched. They allow you to adjust the size and thickness of the penetration, the preference for which changes depending on the tastes of the individual. Even if your partner’s penis or fingers offer a great deal of sexual pleasure already, a dildo can supplement your typical lovemaking. A dildo can also provide a welcome change when you are masturbating, acting as another source of stimulation. It allows controlled exploration of your body, without fear that a slip or misjudgment by your partner will cause pain or discomfort.
Dildos can also help contribute to better sexual health. Menopausal women can use dildos to help decrease the effects of menopause on the vaginal wall. Menopause often causes thinning of the vaginal walls. Regular use of a dildo will maintain vaginal tone by exercising the vaginal muscles. Dildos can also help lessen the effects of vaginismus. This is a condition where the muscles in the vagina become tense, which often makes intercourse quite painful. A dildo can allow controlled penetration to ease the muscles, readying a woman for penetration by her partner.
How do I use a dildo safely?
You can probably guess that dildos are not the most difficult sex toys to use. Nonetheless, if dildos are not used properly then they can cause harm to both you and your partner. It is important that you enjoy your dildo but it is also important that you use your dildo carefully.
Virtually all dildos are made from a porous substance (i.e. rubber, jelly, wood) and these materials can collect infected semen, blood, urine or vaginal discharge. When a person shares a dildo, they risk sharing infections and STDs as well. Whenever you are using dildos with multiple partners you should cover the dildo with a condom. Change the condom after every partner.
Keeping it clean
If you are using a dildo with a regular partner with whom you feel safe, then the precautions focus on keeping your dildo clean. Washing with soap and water can keep the dildo fairly clean. Silicone dildos do not have a porous surface, and therefore they do have the same propensity to collect fluids. When using a dildo by yourself or with a partner make sure you wash the dildo thoroughly after each use. For maximum safety and ease of use try Vibro Cleanse. If you are moving from the anus to the vagina, mouth or other part of the body, make sure that you wash the dildo well in between uses. The anus contains bacteria that could be harmful to the rest of your body. Warm, soapy water is the best way to wash your dildo. Silicon dildos can be boiled to eradicate any infected fluids.
Keeping it wet
Another must for the use of dildos is lubricant. Make sure that you use plenty of lubricant both on the dildo and in the vagina or anus. This will help you introduce it safely and comfortably, and aid in stimulation. Lubricant is especially necessary for anal penetration because the inside of the rectum tends to be very sticky. Without lubricant you can tear the delicate tissues on the rectal lining or find it difficult to remove. Use Love Gel for anal use and Love Lube for any other lubricating...
Respecting your partner
When using a dildo be respectful of yourself and your partner’s body. During anal play, dildos should be carefully because sudden pressure onto the side of the rectum can cause lesions in the anal cavity. Always take it slow when first using a dildo, speeding up as you feel more comfortable. For safe vaginal penetration, make sure that the dildo follows the natural path of the vagina. If you are using a curved dildo, it is usually most comfortable when facing the pubic bone.
Remember that using a dildo is supposed to be fun and enjoyable. Experiment with a dildo by yourself so that you can determine what part of the dildo you can take delight in. Some people enjoy the multiple stimulation derived from using a number of sex toys at the same time. Try out some combinations for yourself. The best way to engage in dildo use with a partner is to let one partner show the other what he/she finds stimulating by masturbating with the dildo. This will give your partner some insight as to what you enjoy and how gentle or rough you want to be.
What should I look for in a dildo?
Finding the dildo that is right for you can be a very frustrating process. The range of sizes and features is overwhelming. Before you make your decision to buy a dildo, inform yourself of the options that are most appealing to you. The key factors to look for in a dildo are shape, size and the type of material used.
One of the first things to consider when buying a dildo is where are you going to use it. If the dildo is going to be used primarily for anal penetration, then you should look at butt plugs or dildos which have a flange. See our detailed section on anal toys for more on these. Some of the larger dildos may be great for vaginal penetration but you and your partner may find them uncomfortable for anal sex. If you are going to use the dildo primarily for vaginal penetration then you should consider the width. Dildos can range anywhere from 1'' to 3'' in diameter, measured at the widest point. Estimate the width you prefer with your fingers, but the only real way to tell is to experiment. Another common variation of dildos is a suction cup attached to the bottom. This means that you can stick the dildo on the ground, on bathroom tile or on a mirror. This allows you to use the dildo and keep you hands free for other things. An absolutely fabulous example of this is Mr Realistic the ultimate realistic dildo...
Dildos come in all different shapes and sizes. Some look like a penis complete with scrotum and testes while others may be shaped into recognizable figurines. The style of dildo that you choose is all based on personal preference. Some men and women may feel uncomfortable using something that so closely resembles a penis so there are other designs available to you. You can purchase a dildo that has an attachment which will gently massage the clitoris as it is used in the vagina. Watch out for adjustable or "bendable" dildos that have a hard plastic or metallic core. The harder material in the center can break the soft outer layer of rubber or silicon, potentially causing injury.
