Realistic dildos
Choosing the dildo sex toy can be quite overwhelming. Basically, it boils down to a matter of preference. Dildos appear in many colors, materials, shapes, sizes, styles, and textures.

Realistic dildos

Nearly all dildos are made out of the following materials: cyberskin, jelly or elastomer, metal, silicone, wood, or acrylic or glass. As with every other sex toy, you will find benefits and drawbacks to each material. Therefore, the harder you know, the more likely you will select the best dildo for you.


A hard and durable plastic, acrylic is clear and looks like glass. The fabric is very strong and it is almost indestructible. Many individuals prefer acrylic which is less expensive than glass and isn't porous, making it an easy task to clean.


Cyberskin is a combination of silicone and plastic, which ends up in the most realistic skin and flesh feeling material. This material becomes warm with use. Cyberskin's main disadvantage is it is porous. So, it is difficult to clean and disinfect. If your sex toy is not looked after properly, it will become sticky and loose its realistic feel.


If you're looking for something hard, then glass is an excellent option. Since these sex toys are really firm, most people go with a slightly smaller size. Most glass dildos are handheld only. Glass dildos are easy to clean and last for quite a while because they are not porous. They're also excellent for temperature play.


Jelly dildos are made of a flexible rubber based material, and so are smellier, stickier and not as smooth as silicone. Fortunately they are porous making them more difficult to clean and disinfect.


Metal is another excellent option if you prefer a hard dildo. Most metal dildos are manufactured from medical-grade stainless steel. Like glass, these are easy to clean, are certainly not porous and are excellent for temperature play.


Dildos made from silicone are the most favored because of silicone's flexibility and skill to quickly adjust to body temperature.

Only buy 100% pure silicone dildos since they're non-porous and hypoallergenic, can be easily cleaned and disinfected, and are quite durable and will last for a very long time.

Silicone dildos can be found in many sizes and shapes. Some of them are smooth and non-phallic looking, while others, like the realistic dildos, look similar to penises. Dildos can come with ridges or nubs for really pleasure.

If the dildo features a wide flat base quite a few in a dildo harness and anal play. Should you be considering on using a harness with your dildo, please note that about ½ inch of the length will taken up by the harness.

Hand-held dildos are designed to be used for solo play (especially G-spot stimulation) and people who like penetration but aren't interested in using a dildo harness.

If you'd like added stimulation, some silicone dildos also come with a bullet vibrator, which vibrates through the entire entire toy.


If you prefer a hard dildo, a wood dildo is an additional excellent option. NobEssence makes all the best wood dildos as the wood they use originates from sustainable forests and is also finished with a medical-grade polymer coating. Like glass and metal, wood dildos are really simple to clean, are not porous, and are excellent for temperature play.


Curved dildos are wonderful for G-spot or prostate play. If the toy has ridges or bumps, it may be too big and uncomfortable for anal play since the anus is much more sensitive compared to vagina.

Double dildos allow both partners to be penetrated simultaneously. Doubled-sided dildos can be used with or without a harness.


Dildo size is very important. If it is too small, then it won't hit the best spot. If it is too big, it might be too intimidating and also you probably won't use it. One simple way to gauge how big dildo you think works best for you is to think about a partner's penis or possibly a toy that has proved helpful in the past. However, since even most aroused penis becomes firmer and softer while having sex, it's only a rough estimate.

Should you be still unsure as to what size might work for you, consider how many fingers it is possible to comfortably insert into yourself or your partner.

Now that find out about dildos, you'll be guaranteed to find one that strikes your fancy. Have a great time!
