What is a dildo?
A dildo is a sex toy that is used for sexual penetration. Traditionally it is used for vaginal penetration, but it can also be used for anal penetration. There are various types of dildos, but they are mainly realistic, phallic looking objects. However, non-phallic dildos are becoming more and more popular around the world. There are many different types of dildos, including realistic, double ended, large dildos, and glass dildos. Below we will go in to a bit more information about the different types of dildos, one of the most popular types of sex toys.
Dildos are primarily used for solo masturbation, as a substitute for the human penis. Dildos can be used for pegging as many are harness compatible, and they can also be used vaginally and anally. You can also get vibrating dildos, which also fall under the vibrator’s category. If you are interested in vibrators, then browse our full range here.
Different types of dildos:
There are many different types of dildos, below we list these types, and what makes them different from other dildos.
These are dildos that are made from…you guessed it…silicone! Silicone is a very popular material for not just dildos, but sex toys in general. This is because silicone has a very strong chemical structure and is compatible with bodily fluids, meaning that it won’t upset your biological chemistry. Due to this silicone dildos can be used for pretty much anything.
Cleaning silicone is also extremely easy, and they are easy to maintain in tip top condition. You can clean a silicone dildo with warm soapy water or specifically formulated sex toy cleaner. Here at Loving Joy, we strongly recommend you wash your dildo before and after use.
People like the uniqueness of the look and shape of glass dildos, they also like the hard texture that the material has. Glass dildos can be used for vaginal and anal stimulation, also because glass has no taste or smell they can be used for oral stimulation. Due to glass being quite heavy, glass dildos are not best suited to being used with a harness as they can fall out easily.
These dildos are made from borosilicate glass which is extremely smooth making it very easy to clean. The material also means that you can use it with any type of lubricant.
Stainless Steel / Aluminium Dildos
Like glass, these dildos are extremely solid and make a delightful sex toy that can be easily enjoyed. They can be used for vaginal, anal, or oral insertion. Remember to clean you dildo before use. The good thing about metal dildos is that they are usually dishwasher safe. Make sure to check the product instructions when you receive it to confirm this.
A great thing about metal dildos is that they do not retain any bacteria so are extremely hygienic. Remember to always clean before and after use regardless of this.
Latex, PVC and Rubber Dildos
These dildos are firm, however they are also flexible giving a more realistic feel compared to other glass or metal dildos. This is the material that many first generation dildos were made of. As research into materials progressed it was found that latex, rubber and old generation PVC retained bacteria, which can upset the bodies natural chemical balance resulting in infections. Modern PVC is much higher quality and retains much less bacteria. We still highly recommend washing any dildo that you use before and after use to be certain. Please note that some people are allergic to certain materials, including latex.
TPE (Thermoplastic Elastomers) Dildos
TPE is a very flexible material that feels very life like. Many of the realistic sex dolls that are also made from TPE as it feels realistic, but is also cheaper than silicone. However, TPE is also porous, so we strongly advise to always clean before and after use.
Dildos in general give the user a high level of sexual arousal and stimulation, and the type of material it is made from can significantly influence the sensations it creates.
