A Guide to Silicone Dildos

By Elena Ognivtseva

Silicone dildos are popular, and for a reason. These firm yet flexible dildos have so many shapes and designs, perfect for any use you might have in mind. The silicone material warms up easily, adapting to the body temperature with relative ease. However, the sheer number of silicone toys available make choosing one something that is almost impossible.

Below are some basics you should have in mind before purchasing one:

A Guide to Silicone Dildos

Silicone Dildos Size

When it comes to anal and vaginal play, the stretching ability determines the size of dildo you can handle. Always ensure that you get a size you can take with ease to avoid having a painful experience.

With anal play specifically, stretching ability is of the utmost consideration as the sphincter muscles are not as flexible as the vaginal muscles. Always ensure that you pick the dildo that matches your stretching ability and level.

Surface Of Silicone Dildos

The finishing of the dildo varies from one design to another. Some dildos have a smooth finish, ideal for those who prefer a slick and smooth slide. Other dildos have textured surfaces, from beads to bulging veins. The textured surface is designed to provide extra stimulation.

The intensity of the sensations you are looking for will determine the surface texture that would be best for you.

Lubrication Of Silicone Dildos

When it comes to silicone dildos, not all lubricants are compatible with the material. Always ensure that you have a water based lubricant close at hand to use with your silicone toy. With silicone based lubricants, the slick may be better but they tend to degrade the toy, reducing the service life of the toy.

Base Of Silicone Dildos

The design of the base of a dildo is something to consider before getting one. Plain based dildos are designed for those who have only stroking needs from the dildo. This is usually for those who plan to use the dildo for manual stimulation solely using their hands to hold on to the dildo.

Dildos with balls at the base are for those who are looking for a realistic feel especially when it comes to deep penetrative strokes.

Suction based dildos are great to stick onto non porous surfaces, allowing the game to take on a more adventurous path. Whether stuck to a wall or floor, these dildos allow for solo play to encompass various body positions like doggy or girl/boy on top.

Flared base dildos are created for those who wish to incorporate their toys with the strap on harness they currently or plan to own. With the harnesses having different sized O rings, always ensure that you measure the base and the O ring to ensure you get a dildo that will comfortably fit in the harness.

Vibrating Dildos

Vibrating dildos have so many varying distinctive features that it may be difficult to choose one. If you are looking for a hands free masturbation session, this is the one for you. However, always ensure that you closely examine the functionalities of the controller and the different functions the dildo is capable of. The controllers may also be wired or wireless, so always ensure you make an educated choice with this.

Some vibrating dildos are compatible with apps for remote control and customization capabilities so ensure that you check out for these features.

Waterproof Silicone Dildos

Whilst most people never take this into consideration, it is very important when it comes to choose a dildo to fit your needs. Some may be partially waterproof, some completely submersible while some are completely not water compatible. If you feel there is a likelihood your session will end up in the shower or bath, choose a dildo that will serve your needs.

Cleaning Silicone Dildos

Silicone dildos are generally non porous, but always ensure that you check for this feature. The silicone dildos are a breeze to clean as all they need is warm or hot soapy water and a toy cleaner of your choice, as long as it is compatible with silicone based toys.

However, if you plan on using the toy with multiple partners, ensure that you use antibacterial toy cleaner or even wipe the toy with alcohol swabs before use. If the dildo has a porous surface, never use it on more than one partner.
