How to Use A Double-Ended Dildo

Fancy a dildo but don't want to leave your partner out of the fun? Then hop on board a double-ended dildo for twice the pleasure, or use it solo for mind-blowing penetration.

If you've always wanted to enjoy double penetration or you and your partner want to try pegging play, then a double dildo could be just what you're looking for!

Quite simply, a double-ended dildo (also known as a double dong) is a long dildo with a moulded head at each end for penetration.

While size is most definitely a factor when buying a double dong, you also have the choice of different colours, textures and materials too. There are even vibrating versions, too.

Choose your perfect match

There’s a smorgasbord of double-ended dildos to pick from. With a range of textures, sizes and functions, the best question to ask is: whose end is it going into?

If you’re keeping both ends for yourself, in the hopes of having a double-penetration-party, a flexible dildo, like the Hoodlum Tapered Double Penetration Realistic Double Dildo, is easier to get to grips with. It might feel wobbly and unwieldy at first, but by bending and twisting it you'll find that it becomes much firmer. Choosing one that has a slimmer end makes anal penetration easier for beginners.

However, If you're playing together, then you'll want a double dildo which is a bit firmer, such as the Doc Johnson Veined Double Header Dildo 18 Inch. The rigidity of the dildo allows you to push against each other and really create some friction.

If you’d like to up the ante on your double-decker-pleasure, look no further than a double-ended vibrator. These double dildos have a short stunted end that sits internally and a longer end which sits outside the body. The vibrations come from a small bullet vibe located in the base, which benefits both partners.

How to use a double dildo on your own

To start with, it's important to cover each end with a water-based lubricant, then position yourself ready for action. Either:

  • Lie on your back, with a cushion or two under your hips, and spread your legs comfortably. Insert one end of the double dildo slowly, then bend the other end of it up towards you to use as a handle and to guide the thrust of it.
  • Bend the dildo into a 'U' shape and rest it against a surface with each end facing upwards. Squatting over it, gently guide one head into the anus and the other into the vagina. You will then be able to bounce on the dildo and achieve full, fulfilling double penetration!

Double up with your lover

Balance and positioning are the main issues when using a double dildo with a partner, so experiment to find out what works for you.

You might like to try having both of you kneeling on all fours and backing on to each end of the double dildo, one at a time. This allows you both to take the dildo at your own pace.

Alternatively, sit facing each other then bring yourself on to your hands and feet in a semi 'crab' position. Slide the double dildo between you and insert it slowly. By intertwining your legs, you can both enjoy the full length of the dildo as you thrust forwards and back, while still maintaining eye contact.
