Different Types of Dildos for Different Pleasures

different types of dildo

Dildos are as diverse as the people who use them. From the classic to the creative, there’s a type of dildo for every desire. Let’s take a closer look at some of the most popular types.

Classic Dildos

The classic dildo is the quintessential sex toy. Often shaped like a penis, these types of dildos are designed for straightforward, satisfying penetration. They come in a variety of sizes and materials offering a range of sensations. Some have a semi-realistic design, some come in cool colors and shapes! If you’re new to the world of dildos, a classic model is a great place to start. I would recommend going for a good quality silicone dildo that is non-porous, 100% body safe and waterproof.

Realistic Dildos

For those who crave a lifelike experience, realistic dildos are the way to go. These types of dildos are designed to look and feel like the real thing, complete with veins, ridges, and often a pronounced head. Some of them are even dildos with balls for an extra touch of realism!

G-Spot Dildos

These dildos are specially shaped to target the g-spot, that elusive area of pleasure located on the front wall of the vagina. With their curved or angled tips, g-spot dildos make it easier to reach this sensitive spot and explore its orgasmic potential.

They come in a variety of materials, but firm materials like glass, metal, ABS plastic or firm silicone are often preferred for g-spot play. The firmness allows for more precise pressure and stimulation, which many people find necessary for achieving g-spot orgasms.

Double Dildos

Double the pleasure with a double dildo! These types of dildos are designed for simultaneous penetration, making them perfect for couples play or solo sessions that require a little extra.

Double penetration dildos also allows you to enjoy the pleasure of total fulfillment for solo play or strap-on play. Whether you’re exploring double penetration or sharing the fun with a partner, these dildos offer twice the excitement.

Anal Dildos

Anal dildos are designed specifically for backdoor bliss. They typically have a flared base for safety (to prevent the toy from getting lost) and are often slimmer than regular dildos. Whether you’re new to anal play or an experienced enthusiast, there’s an anal dildo out there for you.

Cuved anal dildos are also great dildos for men since they are angled to massage the prostate!

Vibrating Dildos

Why settle for just penetration when you can have penetration with vibration? Vibrating dildos combine the fullness of a dildo with the buzz of a vibrator, leading to a whole new level of pleasure. With various speeds and patterns to explore, these types of dildos are sure to shake up your playtime.

Vibrating dildos often come with a built-in motor that powers the vibrations. Some models feature multiple motors for added intensity or targeted stimulation. The vibrations can be controlled via a remote or a control panel on the dildo itself, allowing you to adjust the intensity and pattern of the vibrations to suit your mood.

You can get vibrating dildos with a suction cup base or look into g-spot vibrators with a thicker (and more realistic) shaft for some enhanced angles.

Strap-On Dildos

Strap-on dildos are designed to be worn, usually with a strap-on harness, for partner play. They’re great for couples of all orientations and can be used for vaginal, anal, or oral sex. With a strap-on dildo, you can switch up roles and explore new dynamics in the bedroom.

Any type of dildo with a flared base is compatible to use with an o-ring strap-on harness, like these two below. So when you’re looking for a strap-on dildo, I would say the most important purchase is the harness itself. They come in many different styles and sizes!

Try out a realistic strap-on dildo if you’re looking for that lifelike look and feel. Go for a more non-representational, non-phallic dildo if you don’t enjoy that realistic aesthetic. Once you’ve chosen your preferred strap-on harness, you have your pick of dildos that go with it!

Don’t want to bother with a harness? You’re in luck! Strapless strap-on dildos are a thing! These types of dildos are designed to fit snugly inside the wearer during penetration with the dildo, you’re supposedly able to get some strap-on action strap-free! Keep in mind, that this is more difficult than it looks and for extra security, you may want to wear a harness with your strapless strap-on anyway.

Metal Dildos

For those who crave a firm, weighty sensation, metal dildos are a fantastic choice. Made from materials like stainless steel or aluminum, these types of dildos offer a unique combination of hardness and coolness that many find incredibly pleasurable. Plus, like glass, metal dildos can be heated or cooled for thrilling temperature play. They’re also non-porous and easy to clean and sterilize, making them a hygienic option. They’re also compatible all kinds of lube!

Glass Dildos

Glass dildos are a thing of beauty. Not only do they look stunning, but they also offer a unique sensation similar to that of metal. Glass is firm, smooth, and can be heated or cooled for temperature play. Plus, they’re non-porous, making them easy to clean and safe to use.

One major difference between glass and metal is that metal is significantly sturdier than glass, should you accidentally drop it on the floor (they can get slippery with lube!). However, when intact, both of these materials provide firm, weighted, and temperature responsive stimulation. Although, with clear glass you get the bonus of some transparent visual stimulation!

Dual Density Dildos

Dual density dildos are all about perceived realism. These types of dildos are designed with two layers of material – a firm inner core and a softer outer layer – to mimic the feel of an real life erect penis. The result is a dildo that’s soft to the touch yet firm enough for satisfying penetration. If you’re looking for a dildo that offers a lifelike experience, a dual density model might be just what you need!

Squirting Dildos

Looking for a dildo that delivers a little extra? Squirting dildos might be just the ticket. These dildos are designed with an internal reservoir that can be filled with a liquid of your choice (often a ‘cum-like’ substance is used for added realism). With a squeeze of a bulb or a press of a button, these dildos can ‘ejaculate’, adding an exciting dimension to your play.

Monster Dildos

For those who like to push the boundaries of pleasure, monster dildos offer an exciting challenge. These dildos are larger than average – both in length and girth – and often feature exaggerated, fantastical shapes. Ever wanted a roll in the hay with tentacle beasts or supernatural canine or equestrian creatures? When it comes to monster dildos, your own imagination is the limit!

Whether they’re modeled after mythical beasts or simply supersized versions of the real thing, monster dildos are sure to make a big impact. Remember, if you’re playing with a monster dildo, take it slow, use plenty of lube, and listen to your body.

Finding the Perfect Type of Dildo For You

With so many types of dildos to choose from, finding the perfect one can feel overwhelming. But don’t worry! The key is to think about what you enjoy most in your sexual play. Do you prefer thick dildos or thin dildos? Are you interested in g-spot or prostate play with curved dildo? Do you want to experiment with temperature or texture? By considering these questions, you can narrow down your options and find a dildo that’s just right for you.

Remember, there’s no right or wrong choice when it comes to dildos. It’s all about what makes you feel good. So, don’t be afraid to experiment and try something new. After all, the journey to pleasure is just as fun as the destination!

Safety First For All Types of Dildos!

No matter what type of dildo you choose, safety should always be a priority. Always use a generous amount of lube, go slow, and listen to your body. If something doesn’t feel right, stop.

I recommend making sure that your body is also in an adequate state of arousal. If you’re feeling all hot and heavy before you use your dildo, you’re more likely to have a comfortable and pleasurable experience!

And remember, cleanliness is key. Always clean your dildo before and after each use to keep it in tip-top shape.
