Which Dildo Should I Buy?

26 Jul 2016
The humble dildo has been around for many thousands of years and examples have been found in archaeological sites all over the world. Early dildos were carved from ivory, wood or stone and some intended for the wealthy and powerful were even decorated with gold and jewels - Owch!
 
Thankfully however, the dildo has come a long way with regards to design and are today made from a variety of materials – including silicone and glass among others. Modern-day dildos have also evolved from the simplistic cylindrical designs of the past into several different sub-types making the decision to buy your first one a little tricky.

However - don't panic! As always LuvVibes is here to help! We've put together a list of the most popular styles of dildo, and given you a good example to help you out!

GLASS DILDOS

Perfect for use as ether an anal or a vaginal dildo, the glass dildo is an experience everyone who enjoys using sex toys should try. The glass offers an unbeatable smooth texture and many examples of glass dildos are ribbed or covered in pleasurable bumps, some are double ended, while others are tilted to pleasure the G-Spot and P-Spot. Another great feature of the glass dildo is temperature control, simply warm it in warm water or pop it in the fridge for 10 minutes before use for some exciting experiences - always remember to test the temperature on your arm first though!

REALISTIC DILDOS

As you might well imagine, these dildos are extremely realistic, made from a soft rubber which feels like flesh, with veins running up and down the shaft, testicles in the base and a realistic head tip. Some even have a stretchable foreskin for a really genuine experience. They come in a variety of sizes and colours and many realistic dildos are based on moulds taken from male porn stars.

SUCTION CUP DILDOS

Many dildos have a number of special features to help increase your pleasure such as ribbing, stretchy realistic skin etc. Probably the most common of these features is the suction cup which allows you to stick the dildo to most smooth, flat surfaces, freeing up your hands for other activities and letting you use it in a wide range of positions and places.

DOUBLE ENDED DILDOS

Double ended dildos are mostly used by lesbians and occasionally by straight or gay couples as well. They are essentially two dildos joined in the centre which allows two sexual partners to use the dildo at the same time. Some of them are soft and stretchy while others are harder and ribbed, often with different textures at either end.

STRAP-ON DILDOS

Another sex toy favoured by lesbian couples is the strap-on dildo, which again comes in a myriad of shapes and sizes. Many straight couples also use these for a practise known as 'pegging', where the female partner wears the strap on and anally penetrates her male partner. Most strap-ons come with some form or buckle belt or elastic harness which is worn around the waist and buttocks, although some can be worn around the thigh. Many strap-on dildos are removable and some come with a bullet vibrator in the harness to allow the wearer to enjoy the experience as well.
