What is a Dildo?
A dildo is a phallic-shaped sex toy that’s designed for penetration. They can be used as masturbation tools, during foreplay or to spice up sex with a partner. They can be realistic, representing a real-life penis, or unrealistic - made from unconventional shapes, colors and materials.
Dildo sex toys are suitable for people of all sexual orientations, making them a highly popular toy.
Types of Dildo to Buy
There are many different types of dildos, so it can be helpful to understand each variety and why you’d use it.
You’ll see that most of our dildos range in length and width. A 12-incher might make one person squeal with excitement but be a turn off for someone else. You can choose the size based on experience level or what you find most enjoyable.
You can also buy dildos in different colors, including flesh tones, as well as red, blue, purple, black and even color changing!
Most are made from silicone or plastic, but for those who like temperature play, using one made from glass or metal and either warming it up or cooling it down can make for surprising sensations.
Discover the Best Dildo for You
Whether you want to buy a dildo toy for yourself, a partner, or a friend, here’s some advice on choosing the right one for you:
Start With a Small Dildo
We’d recommend that beginners start small (4-6 inches), then work their way up to larger and wider sizes. It takes time and practice to get used to the feeling, so don’t be too ambitious if you’re new to the game.
If you’re unsure what size you need, you could try an inflatable dildo - these are made to be inserted and pumped up to a size that suits you and your body.
Best Dildo for Those That Want a Realistic Sex Toy
A lifelike or real skin dildo is designed to replicate a penis. Many are made with protruding veins, textured testicles, and bulbed glans at the top, otherwise known as the head, which can give additional external stimulation.
To make your experience even more realistic, try a squirting dildo, which is filled with fluid that you can ejaculate when you’re ready.

When it comes to the menage-a-moi, a vibrating dildo can really help you get your rocks off. The vibration stimulation combined with the shape and feel of a penis makes any vibrating sex toy a great addition to your collection. You can even get a thrusting dildo for added oomph. If you’re missing the real thing though, a realistic phallus may be more up your street.
For those of you who are all about hands-free action, you might want to try a suction cup or wall mounted dildo. These can be fixed to any hard, smooth surface (yes, even the shower!), allowing you to experience uninterrupted solo pleasure. Learn more about how to use them here.
Anal play is also made better with our range of anal dildos made for prostate stimulation. They’re often designed with a slight curve and a narrower girth. If it’s your first time using an anal dildo, we’d recommend starting small with a 6-inch dildo and working your way up.
There’s no limit on which types of dildo can be used with a partner - whether that’s watching your significant other use one, using one on them, or using it together - there’s definitely enough to go around!
Double-sided or double-ended varieties can provide an ideal shared stimulation experience for lesbian sex, but these are held in place with Kegel muscles, so they do take practice to perfect.
Strap-ons are another great option for lesbian couples or heterosexual couples who want to try pegging. Strap-on kits often come with a few different-sized dildos to add variety and excitement to play.
