The use of dildos is quite widespread and a recent survey in a monthly glossy magazine reported that 20% of young professional women between the ages of 24 and 35 carry dildos most of the time. Self-indulgence has been shown to have health benefits and can lead to a better sex life through self-discovery.

What Are Dildos?

There is some debate about what dildos are. The consensus is that non-vibrating devices, resembling the shape of a penis, size, and overall appearance are dildos. Women more often now associate vibrating devices in that definition. Prosthetic aids or penile extensions may also be included as can sex toys/anal penetration aids, although not everyone associates this with the term dildos.

Development Of Dildos

Believe it or not, the use of sex toys goes back in history. The world’s oldest dildos are a 30,000-year-old 20cm siltstone phallus found in a cave in Germany. It is known that the ancient Egyptians used dildos more than 2,500 years ago.

Now today we girls have silicone dildos that are easy to keep clean, cheap, and great for first-time users. The newest material to gain a following is Pyrex glass which is expensive and inflexible but some women just love the feel.

How Dildos Can Be Used

There are many uses for dildos but the most common uses are other than vaginal/clitoral stimulation such as for fetishist value. Couples can use it for foreplay which runs it over the skin. They can be used for the anal penetration or even oral penetration if of the right size. People often use it as a kind of artificial fellatio.

The Beautiful World Of Dildos

There are so many dildos to choose from, they come in a variety of shapes and can even be doubled in ends making for twice the fun in the right environment. There are inflatable dildos, dildos with balls, flare-based, or even those with suction cups for easier control (can be placed on inanimate objects).

What To Look For When Buying Dildos

The three main aspects of buying dildos are shape, material, and color. Most dildos are made of rubber. Even with rubber, there are different types of rubber jelly that are quite popular and come in attractive colors.

Silicone rubber is of better quality and has the added benefit of retaining body heat well, being tough, non-porous, and can be boiled for sterilization. Silicone also feels great when it vibrates and is great when used for clitoral stimulation. Silicones come in a variety of sizes, shapes, and colors so you can find something that works for you.

Hard plastic dildos are not flexible and many women don’t like how they feel. If women use this then often only for a short time. I would suggest that hard plastic is only for more experienced dildos users.

When buying dildos think about what you want from them and it is better to start a little smaller than to go for one too big. Dildos are not cheap and they are of course non-refundable so for beginners rubber jelly dildos can be an ideal starting point.
