Female Orgasm There are many different kinds of dildos (also known as dongs) available on the market today. We break them down into different categories and recommend the best for you.

Dildos are conceptually very simple -- they're a replacement of (or improvement on) the penis. Dildos are used for vaginal or anal penetration, sometimes in conjunction with a vibrator, sometimes solo.

If you aren't sure what type of dildo to get, do your research up front. Due to perfectly reasonable hygienic laws and guidelines, you can't return dildos. Even if you wanted to.

(Can you imagine being the second owner of a dildo? The thought gives us the shivers.)

Dildo Buying Guide

Yes, size really does matter. If your dildo is too narrow, you'll want more. If it's too big, then congratulations, you've just purchased an expensive paperweight. Width is more important than length because you can always control how much of the dildo is penetrating you.

The best way to figure out the right width for you is to use your fingers or hand to penetrate yourself during masturbation, when you're really turned on. Then take your free hand and wrap the fingers around the thickest part of your other hand that penetrated you -- you'll have a circle of fingers. Measure it and bingo, that's the width of dildo you should look for.

If you have trouble determining the right width of dildo for you, stick with inexpensive dildos like the Ballsy Super Cock until you figure out the right size. Then you can invest in a higher-end model.

Dildos come in an array of shapes, from incredibly realistic (Cybercock) to the slightly less anatomically correct Stud all the way to surreal, alien sculptures (Organix or Love Prism).

The advantage of penis-shaped dildos is that they have a head - a flared end - that can stimulate the sensitive outer portion of the vagina. And some women like sex toys that are vaguely reminiscent of anatomy. Other women prefer to have less representational shapes. It's mostly a matter of preference.

Some dildos are bent or curved to allow G spot stimulation.

Silicon is the preferred material for dildos, despite its expense.

  • non-porous, can be disinfected
  • boil or pop in dishwasher to clean
  • long-lasting
  • holds body heat well and warms up quickly
  • melts if used with silicon lube

Generic rubber is the most affordable option.

  • porous and cannot be disinfected
  • do not boil - wash with antibacterial soap
  • may contain chemical softening agents that can be harmful to your health

Vinyl is another lower-cost option.

  • porous and cannot be disinfected
  • firmer than rubber
  • may contain chemical softening agents that can be harmful to your health

Cyberskin is the latest material used for dildos and vibrators. It feels uncannily like real skin.

  • use cornstarch or talc after washing or cyberskin becomes sticky
  • clean with antibacterial soap and water
  • contains chemical softening agents that can be harmful to your health -- use a condom
  • do not use with silicon lube
  • browse cyberskin dildos

Lucite, glass, acrylic and metal are all used to make dildos as well. They are by far the most durable of the options outlined and also the easiest to keep clean.

  • non-porous
  • metal and glass can be boiled
  • glass becomes super-slippery with a little lube
  • metal and glass can be chilled or warmed for your desired effect
  • browse glass dildos
