Choosing and Using a Dildo Picking the right one is important!

Dildos only do what you make them do, so picking the right one is important. If you get something too big, it is simply not going to work. If you’re not sure about what size you want, think about the other things you’ve used for penetration, such as fingers, penises, vibrators etc., and buy a dildo you know is a good fit. Read on for tips to keep in mind when using a dildo.

The Right Lube When Using a Dildo

You typically need lubricant for any kind of sex toy penetration, and this is particularly true of dildos. Be sure to put lubricant on the toy before you use it. And, if you are using the dildo for anal penetration, beware that you’ll probably need to replenish the lube at some point. Read: How to Choose a Lubricant for Both Pleasure and Safety.

Anal vs. Vaginal Dildos

Most dildos can be used for vaginal penetration, but only some are safe for anal penetration. Those safe for anal will have a flared based to prevent them from slipping up into the rectum. You shouldn’t use the same dildo in the vagina and the anus, unless you are using a condom and changing it between, or thoroughly cleaning the dildo between uses with sex toy cleaner.

Relax!

Before you use your dildo for the first time, turn yourself on however you would normally. It’s super important to get in the mood because if you’re feeling awkward or distracted, it only makes penetration more difficult and less enjoyable.

Start Slowly

Before inserting the dildo, see what it feels like when you rub it on the outside of your body. Use it to massage and stimulate external genitalia such as the vulva, labia or anus. Once you are comfortable using the dildo, you can experiment with different rhythms and speeds.

Explore With Depth And Angles

Deep penetration can be pleasurable or painful. If you have a long toy, it is possible to reach your cervix with the end, though this can make it sore. If you feel pain, stop what you are doing, and start slowly again after a break.

Kick It Up A Notch

Combine using a dildo with a bullet, rabbit or wand vibrator to take your stimulation to the next level. Simultaneous penetration and clitoral stimulation can be super enjoyable, and may lead to an intense blended orgasm.

Using a Dildo With A Partner

It’s also fun to use a dildo with a partner. They can either use it to penetrate you, or you can go for a harness/strap-on kit. If you’re using it to anally penetrate a penis-having partner, read our blog about pegging first.
