The best dildos to add to your collection.
Dildos are the duct tape of sex toys. No, not because they’re sticky (they’re not!) ), but because they’re versatile. In fact, Lisa Finn, a sex educator at sex toy mecca Babeland, calls them “the most versatile type of sex toy on the market.”
“Dildos can be used in solo sex, partner sex, multi-partner sex, anal sex, vaginal sex, strap-on sex or studded sex, and double penetration sex play,” she explains. You can also use certain dildos to package – that is, to create a bulge or the illusion of a biological penis on the front of your pants – to stimulate blowjobs or masturbation, and more. Also, some dildos can be vibrated or inserted, and can be used like any other buzz buddy. But “whether the dildo vibrates or not, you may be surprised by the new sexual and sensual sensations the dildo allows you to experience,” Finn says.
“Dildos come in different sizes, colors, textures and have different functions, and you can buy one specifically for any orgasmic need or desire for pleasure.” Says certified sex coach and sex educator Davia Frost. Of course, since this level of diversity can be exciting, it also means that finding the best dildo for you can be a bit overwhelming.
To help you out, we asked sex educators to share their recommendations for 11 key categories of dildos – including best realistic dildo, best non-realistic dildo, best peg dildo, best glass dildo and more.
Best Hookup Dildo: Fun Factory Limba Flex S.
Looking for a dildo that’s perfect for first-time penetration? Look no further! At 4.7 inches long and only 1.1 inches wide, the Limba Flex S is one of the smallest and thinnest dildos on the market, making it perfect for the first duo heading south for the first time.” The dildo also has a tapered tip that allows for easier anal penetration,” Finn says. (Got a question about nailing? Check out this beginner’s guide to pegging ).
The best part of the Limba Flex S, however, is that it has a poseable core. What does this mean? It means you can bend it! So instead of buying a dildo and running it through your fingers, it will work with the contours of your body and “you can shape this dildo to best target your internal hot spots.”
It’s worth noting. the Limba Flex S is also a perfect dildo for packaging and play (meaning, literally, you can use it for packaging, as explained above, and for actual solo or partner play. There are some dildos just for packaging.) “Its size and bendability make it perfect for people looking for a small packaging and play dildo,” Finn says.
Best realistic dildo: Shilo, the New York sex toy collective.
Your search for the best realistic dildos is over – it really doesn’t get any better than New York Sex Toy Collective’s line of realistic dildos, which features Shilo, Mason, Carter and Leroy (arranged from smallest to largest).
“All New York Sex Toy Collective dildos are made of dual-density, realistic-feeling and looking silicone,” Frost says.” And they have poseable cores so you can bend the dildo to your preferred curve.”
All four dildos are vaginally and anally safe, so which one you get depends on your size preference. (They also come in all different skin tones – plus some fun colors, like this bright blue.) At 6 inches in insertable length and 1.6 inches thick, Shilo is the best dildo for packing and first-time anal. And at 9 inches long and 2.5 inches thick, Leroy is the best for those who enjoy fullness and fisting.
The best realistic dildo on a budget. Colours Dual Density Dildo
“The Colours Dual Density Dildo is one of the best realistic dildos for a low budget,” says Finn. The dual-density silicone (firmer on the inside and softer on the outside) gives it a realistic feel, while the skin color and vein-y details give it a realistic look. (Or you can choose this pink option for a pop of color.) “Veins can also add to the feel of the insertion process, which some people find very sensational,” she says.
Finn adds that the Colours dildo has an A+ suction cup.” For hands-free solo penetration play, this is a great option,” she says.
Best Glass Dildo: Icicle Octopussy
Role-playing idea: You’re Ariel and your Muppet is Ursula. Ursula is trying to lure you away from Prince Eric and use her evil smile and …… tentacle dildo into the wonderful world of lesbianism. If you’re feeling frisky, consider the Octopussy. Even if it’s not hot, you have to admit: this thing is very pretty.
A glass tentacle-shaped dildo with parallel lines of textured dots running down its axis, “Octopussy allows you to try playing with weight and texture at the same time,” Finn says.
What sets this dildo apart from other glass dildos on the market is its looped end, which doubles as a handle. Finn explains. The ring dildo allows you to hold it easily even after lubrication It also allows the dildo to be anally secure.
The most textured dildo: the Geode dildo.
Another interesting textured option: Geode Dildo. made to look like the crystal-lined rocks you might find in a museum gift store, this medical-grade silicone dildo is much softer than it looks in pictures. (Seriously – just look at the GIF of someone squeezing it with one hand.) “Those little ‘pieces’ won’t cut you! They’re not dangerous in any way, they’re just super textured,” Finn says.
She explains that the “shards” are designed to stimulate the anterior vaginal wall (where the G-spot and A-spot are located!) during each penetration . If this sounds intense, that’s because it is.” It’s really not a great dildo or for first-time dildo buyers,” Finn says.” But for those who already know they like the texture, it’s great.” Noted.
Best strap-on set for Pegging. pegasus g-spot and p-spot restraints.
All clear. This was my first time having bondage sex with a harness and a dildo, so I admit I’m a little biased. However, I heartily recommend this kit to anyone having bondage sex for the first time.
Why? Well, for starters, the Pegasus kit comes with a 6-inch medical-grade silicone, non-textured dildo that vibrates thanks to a wireless remote control that can be used up to 30 feet away. It’s also rechargeable, waterproof, and has a suction cup on the bottom, so you have ~all the options~ with this dildo, even when you’re not using it in a harness. (P.S. These other remote control vibrators can work on the other side of the room or the other side of the country.)
That being said, this harness is also awesome. With a strap style harness that adjusts to fit a 67 inch hip, this harness is suitable for all body shapes and sizes. (If you’re in the market for a harness, check out my other favorite, too. SpareParts Joque Harness). It also comes with an extra O-ring (a circle that holds the dildo in place), allowing you to easily swap out the dildo for another dildo in your collection.
Best Stainless Steel Dildo https://www.mytoyfirst.com/double-ended-dildos: Njoy Eleven (Njoy Eleven)
Without a bindable base and too heavy of a binding weight, the Eleven is not your typical dildo. Still, it has some features Size Royalty (that’s a gender-inclusive iteration of Size Queen, FYI) dildo buyers will love. It includes 11 insertable inches, a 2-inch diameter, and a thick, bulbous tip for G-spot or P-spot stimulation.
Sex educator and Lovehoney Sexpert Ashley Cobb says that because it’s made of stainless steel, it’s great for temperature play, easy to clean (with fragrance-free soap and water!) ), and is smoother than silicone.
If price (admittedly steep) or girth is a barrier, check out Eleven’s smaller, cheaper nibs. pure Wand (Buy It, $150, lovehoney.com). (For more on that one, read why the Pure Wand is one of my favorites.)
Best non-realistic dildo: Gala Confetti Dildo.
Cue Ke$ha voice: The party don’t start ’til the Gala Dildo walks in. Realistic in shape and texture, but not color (LOL, obviously), Finn says the Gala Dildo is one of her favorite dildos to recommend.” At less than $70, it’s a very accessible price point and has a super strong suction cup that comes in handy when playing solo,” she/he says.
While most suction cups aren’t strong enough to stick anywhere other than the bathtub ledge, the Gala Confetti Dildo suction cup does. So, you can put it on a dining room chair and put on a show for your loved one. Or, stick it on a bench for some single-rider-on-top action.
With 6.5 inches of insertable inches and a diameter of 1.67 inches, the original Gala Dildo is on the larger side. Fortunately, if you’re looking for a more conservatively sized dildo, there’s also the Gala Mini Confetti Dildo (buy it, $60, at babeland.com), which is only 5.5 insertable inches and 1.5 inches thick.
