But are you getting the most out of yours? When was the last time you tried something new with yours? It’s never too late to teach an old dildo new tricks.

For something so simple, there are so many ways to enjoy a dildo. Everyone needs different stimulation to get off, and without the right techniques, you can be left feeling disappointed with your dildo, but that’s all about to change! Here are my top tips to go from dildo disappointment to dildo delight!

This guide will focus on how to use a dildo for vulva owners, but if you have a penis, we’ve got some fantastic dildo tips and techniques for you as well!

 

How to Use a Dildo for the First Time

 

Using a dildo for the first time

 

  1. Set the mood. Light a candle, play some music, and set up your space. This is also a good time to give your dildo a clean and make sure you’ve got some lube on hand.
  2. Get yourself aroused. Fantasize, watch porn, listen to erotic audio, or read some erotic fiction. Massage other areas of your body, like your nipples or inner thighs.
  3. Apply some lube to your dildo and rub it on your clitoris, nipples, and around your labia.
  4. When you are fully aroused, apply more lube to the dildo, making sure to cover the whole shaft, and then slowly insert the tip of the dildo into your vagina.
  5. Slide the tip in and out slowly. It may help to use two fingers on your free hand to gently spread your labia apart.
  6. When you feel ready, slowly slide more of the shaft into your vagina. You can also do this by rocking your hips back and forth, as you would during penis in vagina sex.
  7. Remember you don’t have to insert the whole dildo. Only insert as much as feels good to you. Your g-spot is only a couple of inches inside your vagina, so you may find that shallow penetration feels better for you.
  8. Experiment with different movements and speeds. Thrusting, twisting, grinding can all feel fantastic. 

 

How to Properly Use a Dildo – Techniques to Try Today!

So we all understand the basic premise of using a dildo, but slight changes in movement, angle, and speed can really make a difference when it comes to getting the right type of stimulation. You might also discover a new sweet spot you never knew existed!

 

How to Use a Dildo for G-spot Stimulation

G-spot location

G-spot stimulation with a dildo can take a bit of practice, so remember to be patient with yourself and enjoy the process. The G-spot is usually found 2-3 inches inside your vagina, on the front wall. It’s a little bit different for each person, so you’ll want to take some time to explore the area to find your sweet spot.

First of all, it’s really important to spend some time getting yourself aroused so your g-spot swells and becomes easier to find and stimulate.

Take your dildo and insert the first 2-3 inches. Angle it upwards towards the front wall of your vagina. You can then rock or rub the tip of your dildo back and forth over your g-spot. Vary the strokes and speed until you find what works for you.

Curved dildos with bulbed ends are the best option for g-spot stimulation as they make it easy to reach your g-spot and save you from getting the dreaded hand cramp!

 

How to Use a Dildo for A-spot Stimulation

A-spot location

 

The a-spot, or anterior fornix erogenous zone, is found deeper inside the vagina, near the cervix. Stimulating the a-spot can give you a big boost of natural lubrication and can even lead to an A-spot orgasm!

Long dildos with a curved tip will allow you to stimulate your a-spot. The A-spot responds best to pressure, so once you find it, use your dildo to press on the area, moving it in circles or side to side. You want to be careful not to thrust too hard as you don’t want to hit your cervix as this can be pretty painful.

 

Just the Tip

The opening of your vagina is full of sensitive nerve endings that can be stimulated by inserting and removing the tip of a dildo. This works really well with a realistic dildo with a sculpted head, like the Lifelike Lover Luxe. While you are unlikely to orgasm from this type of stimulation, it can really build arousal and is a great way to warm up for other types of stimulation.

 

Ride Your Dildo

Riding your dildo cowgirl style gets your hips in on the action. Many women find that rocking their hips actually helps them to orgasm. A suction cup dildo is perfect for this as you can suction it to any flat, horizontal surface and you are ready to ride! Another fantastic option is the BonBon sex toy mount from Liberator that holds your dildo in place while you ride yourself to orgasm. Both options have the added bonus of leaving your hands-free to add in some clitoral stimulation.

 

Clitoral Stimulation

Dildos aren’t just for internal play. They also make for fantastic clitoral stimulation, as they can feel like the stimulation is coming from someone other than you. You can rub the tip of your lubed-up dildo back and forth over your clitoris for pinpoint stimulation, or lay your dildo flat between your labia and rub it up and down to stimulate your whole vulva. The Kendall Swirly Silicone Dildo has plenty of texture to stimulate your labia and a sculpted head that’s perfect for clitoral stimulation,

If you enjoy grinding, you can also lie your dildo flat on a cushion and grind back and forth over it, getting some intensely pleasurable clit stimulation.

 

Double Penetration

You definitely don’t need multiple partners to enjoy the intense satisfaction of double penetration. There’s a dildo for that! Double penetration, vaginal and anal, can create a wonderfully feeling and intensity all of the wonderful stimulation by creating more pressure against the vaginal wall. Curved double penetration dildos, like the Colours DP Pleasures Double Dildo, are easier to control, but a flexible double-ended dildo will also work.

 

How to Use a Dildo Anally

The anus is another wonderfully sensitive spot. You can use your dildo to massage the area around your anus or insert the dildo to explore anal penetration. Remember, only use dildos with a flared base for anal penetration to prevent the toy from being fully inserted, and use plenty of lubrication as the anus is not self-lubricating. You should never use the same dildo for anal and vaginal play unless you use a condom between uses. A smooth, slim dildo, like the 5-inch Slimline Dildo from Lovehoney, is a good option for anyone new to using a dildo anally.

 

 

Different Strokes for Different Folks

 

Dildo strokes

 

Long, Slow Thrusts

Long slow thrusts can feel fantastic with a ribbed or textured dildo. The raised details rub against all your sensitive nerve endings with each movement, resulting in some delicious internal stimulation.

 

Shallow, Fast Thrusts

Short, fast thrusts are good for working yourself up into a frenzy are more likely to give you some g-spot stimulation. Having a dildo with a suction cup base gives you something to hold onto!

Twisting

Twisting a dildo as you simultaneously move it in and out takes the stimulation to next level. A textured dildo can enhance the sensation, with the raised details exciting your nerve endings with each movement.

 

Next Level Dildo Play

Temperature Play

Dildos made from borosilicate glass or stainless steel can be heated or cooled to add some thrilling sensations to your dildo play. As well as responding to different types of touch, the sensitive nerve endings in your genitals also respond to heat. Simply place the dildo in some hot or cold water for a few minutes before using it. Always check the temperature somewhere else on your body, like your inner arm, first to check that it’s not too hot or cold.

 

Put on a Show for Yourself

A lot of people balk at the idea of looking at their own genitals let alone watching themselves masturbate, but hear me out. Watching yourself masturbate in the mirror or even filming yourself masturbating can be incredibly arousing and empowering. It can also help improve your self-confidence and your relationship with your body!

 

Give Your Dildo a Blowjob

Another one that might sound a little odd at first. I mean why give oral sex to something that can’t feel anything? Giving your dildo a blowjob can feel incredibly sexy. You can use them to help you fantasize or just enjoy the full feeling in your mouth. This is great as masturbation foreplay or as an extra during the main event. Watching yourself in the mirror while you do it can add even more excitement.

How to Use a Double Dildo

Double dildos can be used in many different ways for solo play. Double dildos that are formed into a u-shape and have a smaller end and a larger end are best for double penetration as they are easier to control. Soft, flexible double-ended dildos are great for exploring deep penetration as you can use one end as a handle. In this position, you can also get some added stimulation as the shaft moves over your clitoris.

 

How to Use a Large Dildo

Large dildos are essentially the same as any other dildo, but you’ll want to take some extra time and steps to warm up before diving right in with a large dildo. Start with a lot of foreplay to get yourself wet and ready for penetrative play and then use your fingers or a smaller dildo to open yourself up before slowly inserting the larger dildo. You’ll also want to use extra lube with a big dildo and remember to reapply as necessary.

If your dildo is made from porous materials, such as PVC, soft plastic, jelly, rubber, or TPR/TPE, it’s wise to use a condom with your dildo, as bacteria and mold can grow in the toy’s pores.

The best materials for dildos are silicone, borosilicate glass, or stainless steel as they are non-porous and easy to clean. They can also be boiled for sterilization as long as they have no electrical parts. You should always clean your dildo before and after each use to keep it in tip-top condition and keep you safe.

  4. Use a clean towel to dry your dildo.
  5. When your dildo is completely dry, store it in its own bag or box until next time!

  1. Bring a saucepan of water to a boil.
