Many of you may have the big question in your mind: “What is a dildo?’

Answering your doubt, a Dildo is a phallic shaped sex toy that mimics the shape of the human male penis. Dildos have been in the sex toy industry for over a couple of years. In ancient times, females would use wooden Dildos to pleasure themselves when their male counterparts were away.

In the current times, it can be manually or battery operated according to your convenience. They come in a variety of textures like flesh, glass, rubber, silicone or metal, and can be used in both men and women.

Types of Dildos:

With the development of sex toys and the elaborative imaginations of sex toy manufacturers, numerous types of dildos that have arisen in the sex toy industry over the years.

How do you choose the right dildo for you?

Material Matters:

Compare common materials like silicone, glass, and rubber, highlighting their pros and cons.

Similar to every other product we use, body safety plays a role in sex toys too! Most dildos are made of silicone, glass, rubber, and metal.

No matter what you choose, opt for non-porous dildos; meaning, they do not have holes. Non-porous sex toys are safer to avoid the transmission of bacterial infections. Also check to see if your dildo has ASB plastics, free from phthalates.

Size and Shape:

Most dildos are around 8 to 10 inches, with the ability to comfortably hold the dildo during manipulation. Will the entire dildo be inserted? Of course not! The insertion length differs from person to person. For some, this may be just 4 inches, while others can take in 6 inches. And it can change according to the insertion point (vagina or anus).

The shape of the dildo is usually phallic shaped, mimicking the human male penis. This is mostly with a thick shaft, a tapered tip, and a slight curve on the top. This shape can directly aim at the hot spots in your body!

Features to Consider:

Dildos may also have other features such as suction bases, vibrating shafts, temperature-controlled shafts and dual-density dildos.

How to Use a Dildo?


Understanding how to use your dildo is important! Mostly dildos are used for penetrations.

You can penetrate your G-spot and your P-spot depending on your gender. Alternating between speeds and intensities can help you explore what you like. Test out different positions, and also combine your dildos with different toys.

What you feel the first time may not be the same when you feel it the second time. Remember, practice builds perfections and in sex exploration, all we need is perfect climaxes!

No matter how you use your dildo, remember to be safe and secure at all times!  


At Wild Fantasy, our pleasure experts cannot stress the importance of using adequate lubrication when using a dildo! Lubrications or lubes are of various types such as silicone, oil-based, water-based, jelly and so much more.

However, our recommendation to you is the use of water-based lube, as it has a lesser risk of irritation in your intimate areas.

If you are looking for comfort and smoother insertion of your dildo, lube is your best friend! It will reduce friction as it glides inside you, making lovemaking more effortless and pleasurable. Take an ample amount of lube and lather it into your dildo and your insertion point.

Watch as the dildo glides in effortlessly and enjoy pleasurable stimulations!

Insertion Tips:

Now this is a lesson of patience! Using your dildo, whether you’re a pro or a beginner, insertion must be done slowly! Listen to your body and proceed to a comfortable insertion!

Remember that rushing can be painful. Instead, enjoy every session and see how your body takes in every touch, every caress and every inch of insertion of the dildo! If you are using a dildo on your partner, be sure to check on their comfort every now and then!

Experimenting with Angles and Positions:

If you are new to dildos or sex toys in general, remember that shifting positions can elevate your sexual journey. It can give me different pleasures as your internal spots may receive different pressures when you place yourself differently.

Using a dildo can be done by hand (yours and your partners) and can also be done using a harness. You can explore pleasures by sitting, standing, laying down, extending your limbs, curling around, in the baby pose and so much more.

If you are getting into partnered play, you can also use your partner’s support to explore the multiple pleasures a dildo can give you!

How can you ensure safety and hygiene?

Cleaning Your Dildo:

With the different types of dildos we have in the market, we may have to be vigilant about the material it is made, and the possibility of transferring bacterial infections. In general, you must keep all your sex toys clean. Given the insertion techniques used with a dildo, dildos must be 100% clean.

Cleaning sex toys are not done just after the session. Instead, your sex toys must be cleaned before and after use. You can clean your toys in a few easy steps. For that use an antibacterial soap and lukewarm water to later your dildo.

Rinse well and use a lint-free cloth to dry your dildo and store them in a dust-free storage pouch, away from sunlight. If you are too cautious, spray some of your favourite Sex Toys disinfectant!

Dildos can be porous or non-porous depending on the material it is made up of. Most dildos are either silicone or glass.

Glass dildos are non-porous and safe. Silicone dildos can be non-porous, depending on the quality of silicone used. We always recommend that you use non-porous dildos, with ABS plastic, this is phthalate free.

Metal dildos are safe to use as well. Remember, porous means they can contain pores or holes. This can carry bacteria and can cause bacterial infections. So non-porous is always great!

Maintaining your dildo is not just great for your health but also for the health of your dildo itself. Better maintenance means a longer dildo life!
