GUIDE TO SEX TOYS: THE DILDO

The word Dildo is believed to have come from the Latin word Odilatere which means to open wide or the Italian word Diletto which means to delight.

The history of the Dildo starts in the Palaeolithic era.  Archaeologists have found items from this era in caves and they believed that they where fertility objects.  But with the shape being of a phallus other people believed they were for another use… Some of the first items found where made from polished stone with rounded heads and measuring around 20cm in length and as such where believed that they had been used as a sexual aid.

Other Phallus shape items have been found made out of wood and leather and olive oil was believed to be used as a lubricant.

Kama Sutra known throughout the world as a book of Indian erotic poetry once informed the reader that they can make their own items for pleasure by using such items as wood, buffalo horn, copper, silver, ivory and gold.

But we have come a long way with sex toys and now the dildo is one of the most popular sex toys to own.

Dildos, also known as Dongs, are still usually in the shape and look of a phallus and are used for sexual gratification through penetration.  They are used solo whilst masturbating or with a partner during foreplay and sex and they can be used vaginally or anally.

Thankfully the materials used today are by far superior to the Palaeolithic era.  Rubber, Silicone, PVC, Silagel, Ceramic, Steel and Stone are the main materials in good quality toys.  With sizes ranging from 6” upwards and every colour you can imagine from the very real flesh colours including white and black to the bright colours of pink, purple and red and more.  You can even get glow-in-the-dark.

Because of the different kinds of materials available they can be used in many different ways.  Firm, soft, jelly and solid makes for unique pleasures.  One is not like the other.

They come in a large range of styles, from very realistic with balls, which can look and feel almost like the real thing,  then you have the vibrating range, these can be with a remote control or wireless.  Then for when you need something stable you go to the suction cups range with the cup on the base so they can stay in place whilst in use.  Also available are double headed dildos which can be used by one person for anal and vaginal stimulation or be used by two people depending on the length for dual stimulation, these are available with or without a vibrating unit.  The majority are waterproof but make sure you read the instructions on the one you purchase before putting it near water.

There are solid and hollow toys available with or without straps and are used by women to penetrate women and women to penetrate men, which is called pegging and also for men with erectile dysfunction or wanting to add a little to their own size. Double dong strap-on’s are for both vaginal and anal penetration simultaneously.  Other harnessed dildos can be worn on the head or chin or can be attached to furniture.

Porn stars like John Holmes, Shane Diesel and David Anthony just to name a few have their penis immortalized for us to enjoy.  There are cast moulds of their penises made into large dongs for when you want something big and realistic.

You can even choose to clone your own penis or your partner’s with a kit that has a special timing moulding powder and a formulated liquid that you pour into a tube.  Add a small vibrating unit leave for 24 hours and you have a mould exactly like you.

Some are especially designed for anal penetration as they should have a flared base so that they are safe for anal play.

Lube is very important to use when playing with toys.  Water based lubes are preferred, but if you have a favourite lube just checked to make sure that your toy is combatable as not all lubes can be used with all toys.  Hygiene is very important so always clean your toys after use and it’s easy with antibacterial toy cleaner and water.

There is a dildo to suit everyone’s needs and desired pleasures.  If you have difficulties finding THE ONE for you, please contact us and we will be happy to help.
