Dildo | How To Choose A Dildo? 

What Is A Dildo?

A dildo is a type of adult toy that has a phallic shape and appearance. It’s intended to be used for sexual penetration – either vaginally or anally – to heighten one’s sexual pleasure. And it can be used both during masturbation or with a partner. The history of the dildo is touted to date back to Germany, 28,000 years ago in Hohle Fels cave. Archeologists found a penis-shaped object in the cave and were uncertain if it was, in fact, a dildo. Some scientists believed that the 20-centimeter siltstone phallus was simply used by prehistoric people to make hunting tools. Nevertheless, since it was explicitly phallic in appearance, it may still have a sexual connotation. On the other hand, scientists also debated the usage of “phallic batons” as one of the first dildos. These phallic objects were used in “defloration” rituals to penetrate young women. While its usage is widespread now, some conservative countries still view it as taboo. Hence, people prefer buying sex toy Malaysia via online sex shops for their convenience. In today’s blog post, we’ll explain all there is to know about dildos, from their sizes, shapes, and materials used. And you’ll be on your way towards choosing a dido that suits you best!

The Size Of A Dildo

Let’s begin with the size of a dildo as it’s the most important aspect of a dildo. If it’s too big, it’ll be uncomfortable. On the contrary, too small and it won’t even be pleasurable. Two measurement metrics that you need to pay attention to are the length and the diameter of a dildo. Length refers to how long the dildo really is. We recommend a dildo with a length of about 7 to 9 inches if this is the first time for you to use one. Remember that on average, the vagina of a non-aroused woman is about 3 to 4 inches deep. And it usually expands during arousal and hence, can accommodate another 3 to 4 inches. So, a sex toy Malaysia with a length of 7 to 9 inches provides just enough pleasure without any pain. Also, if you’re planning to use one for anal penetration, it’s an absolute must to choose a dildo with a pronounced flared base or a stopper. This is for safe anal action and to prevent the dildo from being stuck in the anus. As for the diameter, it simply refers to how wide the dildo is. A dildo with a big diameter simply means that it has a large circumference or girth. On average, the diameter of an erect penis is 1.5 inches while the girth spans about 4.5 inches. If you or your partner enjoys the feeling of vagina walls being stretched, then choose a dildo with a diameter of 1.5 inches. Go for a slimmer dildo of about 1 to 1.25 inches for more precise G spot stimulation.   

The Shape Of A Dildo

Next to size, the shape is also another important aspect of a dildo. Most dildos are cylindrical and replicate the shape of a real penis. These toys also usually have a uniform diameter lengthwise. On the other hand, they also come in a slightly curved shape for intense G spot or prostate stimulation. Another variation to the shape comes in the form of the suction cup. Some dildos are designed with suction cups so that users can attach it to the floor or wall. Users are then free to use their hands to stimulate themselves. If you want versatility in your sexual play, then the addition of a suction cup allows you to use your dildo in many ways.  

The Material Of A Dildo

When it comes to choosing your dildo material, take heed of the two most important criteria. These are feel and sanitation. Some materials like rubber, PVC, and jelly are not hygienic as they encourage bacteria growth. These materials are porous and become a breeding ground for bacteria. It’s important that you choose a dildo that can be easily cleaned like silicone. As for the feel, it refers to the hardness (or softness) of a dildo. If you prefer hard dildos, choose dildos made of either glass or acrylic. There are also body safe metals like aluminum, titanium, and stainless steel. Silicone checks both boxes for hygiene and feels as it’s non-porous and can be easily cleaned. It also is a close replicate of the penis. We all have different preferences; hence, it’s important to choose a dildo that’s comfortable.
