• The Big Dildos Sex Toy Buying Guide

    When it's time for straight-forward sex toys lovin', an up 'n' thrustin' dildo is every girl's best buddy. There are shapes and sizes for everybody - all is explained in our Big Dildos buying guide. (It's the guide that's big - and some of the dildos...)


    Dildos were used in ancient Greece and the Roman Empire, so you might say they're a cornerstone of civilisation as we know it. They're all about penetration, and generally speaking there are no singin', dancin', battery-operated throbtastic extra features to distract you. Quite right too.

    When shopping for a dildo, imagine you're shopping for your perfect penis. Think about length and girth - do you want it to be just big just enough to feel, or do you savour that stretch-and-fill sensation? Do you want it smooth and warm, or tough and super-hard? You should also consider how you're going to use your dildo. If you fancy using it in a harness its usable length will be reduced by an inch or so, so you might want to broaden your length limits. But don't get carried away: always make sure it won't bang against your cervix.

    We've' got them long and smooth, short and cute and stubby, black, white or dayglo. You'll be like a kid at the pick 'n' mix.

    Realistic Dildos

    Tantus Diva Silicone DildoWhen we say realistic, we mean "looks like a cock". And some. They can be made out of jelly or rubber, but when you try one of these babies in the divinely touchy-feely silicone (check out the Tantus Diva) you'd be forgiven for ditching the real thing. Not that we'd ever suggest such a thing. As with penises, dills come in all shapes and sizes, from the 5-inch Heavy Metal Dildo to the frankly huge 14-inch Target Practice The Invincible Large Dildo 14 Inch, but they have one key thing in common: they're meant for thrusting. No batteries here, my friend - it's all in your hands.

    Smooth Dildos

    Crystal Lover ProbeWhile a realistic dildo is a turn-on for some, other women find them intimidating and prefer a smoother ride. A beautiful wand-like dildo such as the glass Crystal Lover is truly a girl's best friend - it's simple to handle, easy to insert and doesn't make you feel like you're enduring the invasion of the wobbly jelly uber-dicks. Other good materials for a smoother touch include translucent rubber, metal or - surprise surprise - silicone. That stuff really does get everywhere. Smooth dills are also excellent for anal play, provided you cover them with a condom or give them a good wash afterwards.

    G-spot dildos

    Love Labs Ribbed Glass ProberOn the subject of smooth dills, we must mention one of Honey's all-time favourites, the Love Labs Ribbed Glass Prober. This glass beauty is kinked to hit your G-spot, and you can warm it up or cool it down to match your cravings. You could also try a shaft with large bumps for G-spot stimulation (the Tantus Charmer Silicone G-Spot Prostate Dildo is a great example) to ensure all-round internal stimulation. And don't keep all the fun to yourself, because gents can enjoy G-spot dildos too - simply make friends with his prostate.

    Anal dildos

    X Large Triple Bump Butt PlugYou may not have a prostate yourself, but you can still enjoy wondrous sensations through a bit of anal play - just remember that the anal opening doesn't expand with arousal, so be gentle and lube up. Anal dildos are often called "butt plugs" because they're smaller and nubbier than traditional dills, and they have to be because your rectum is only a few inches long. A good place to start is the small Falcon Butt Plug, which is soft enough to fit to your natural contours and warm enough to reduce the shock value. Higher up the scale you could try the hugely satisfying X Large Triple Bump Butt Plug, or something more playful like the Ribbed Silicone Candy Butt Plug. Bottoms are so this year, darling...

    Double enders

    Doc Johnson Double Header DildoDoes what it says on the tin - gives double the pleasure, however you use it. Twin terrors like the Double Header Dong can, with plenty of lube and a dextrous touch, make you feel like you're sleeping with two men at once - or you and your partner can experience simultaneous penetration. You should probably steer clear if you've never used a dildo before. These things can look longer and scarier than a train ride to Timbuktu.

    Beads and balls

    Oriental Ben Wa BallsAnal beads offer a much less intimidating form of anal play, and they're favourites with everyone from newbies to anal connoisseurs. They can be made of soft material like jelly or firmer stuff like metal, but they all involve five or six spheres on a piece of cord or flexible plastic. To use them you gently insert the string, bead by bead, and leave them there while you orgasm. Just remember to use loads of lube, test the strength of the string - you don't want to lose those things in there - and check the beads for rough spots. Honey also wants to mention her rather larger balls such as Oriental Ben Wa Balls and their vibrating metal equivalent, which are meant for vaginal insertion. Slide them in, get on the bus, and thrill to those battery-free vibe sensations!

    Strap-ons and harnesses

    Deluxe Harness & Triple Dildo Strap-On SetMy nan used to say it's nicer to give than to receive, and strap-on fans would be first to agree. They're not just for lesbian couples: the power-shifting and role-play involved in using a strap-on dildo is arousing for all sexual pairings. Honey's range includes the tough leather Deluxe Harness & Triple Dildo Strap-On Set, which comes complete with a 6-inch jelly dildo, but if you wouldn't know the first thing to do with it, go for the Bend Over Beginner Harness Kit. User-friendly but really rather naughty. For more in-depth tips on strap-on harnesses, read our guide.
