• In all sorts of exciting colours, shapes and sizes, dildos are designed with ergonomic curves to stimulate all the right spots - the fact that they don't vibrate doesn't lessen their potential to give pleasure.

    To find the perfect dildo, you need to think first consider what you're going to use it for. For example, if you want a dildo for G-spot stimulation you may want one made from a firm material like glass or metal, with a slight angle or curve. If you want to use a dildo anally then you’ll need one with a flared base made from an easily cleaned material.

    Once you’ve figured out what you want, we’ll show you how to select the right dildo for you.

    How to Choose the Perfect Dildo

    Pay careful attention to the product details and you'll find the perfect dildo for you. While you won't be checking out how many speeds and patterns the toy has or which batteries it takes, the size, shape and materials of a dildo will make a huge impact on how well it can reach the right spots.

    Dildo Details

    Some dildos also have special features, like a suction base or compatability with a dildo harness, that you might want to keep an eye out for.

    Shape

    Lovehoney Waver Orgasmic Glass Dildo 8 Inch

    When purchasing your first dildo, it's probably best to go for a small, smooth dildo to get used to handling it. If you like the look and feel of realistic ridges and veins, a realistic dildo that's sculpted like an actual penis could be just the ticket.

    But what if you want something a bit more erotic? Curved dildos, such as the Lelo Ella Dildo, are the real deal when it comes to hitting your G-spot bang on. Because of their angled heads, these clever dildos get to your sweet spot in double-quick time and will produce some amazing orgasms.

    Twisted, contoured or 'special feature' dildos, such as the Lovehoney Waver Orgasmic Glass Dildo are ideal for both partner play and solo fun. The unique shapes will satisfy your wildest dildo fantasies with ease!

    Length and Girth

    Homo Gigantus Giant Dildo

    Think about length and girth - do you always feel like you're craving more, or do you cringe at the mere thought of a good stretching? We sell small dildos for those just starting out and have a full scale, right up to the most enormous dildos you have ever seen!

    If you like the full-up feeling of a really huge dildo but find insertion difficult, then you might like to go for an inflatable dildo that can be pumped up once it's inside.

    Check and double check the size measurements in the product descriptions - some really are massive (like the Homo Gigantus Dildo pictured) and even though we offer free 1 year returns, it's better to get it right first time and avoid disappointment.

    Material and Flexibility

    njoy Pure Wand Stainless Steel Dildo

    Finishes, materials and flexibility make a massive difference to the results delivered by your dildo. Rigid toys like glass, metal and silicone are great for working the G-spot or P-spot. They're also smoother than real-feel, rubber or jelly and so are easier to insert and require less lube.

    Glass and metal dildos are often cast in sublime shapes for entirely new internal sensation. Metal and glass dildos can be warmed or cooled for extra variety to your play.

    Silicone dildos are firm yet flexible, warm quickly to body temperature and are easy to clean. Silicone is a brilliant choice for an anal dildo.

    Realistic feel dildos are made to feel as close to real skin as possible. If you're looking for a dildo that feels like a real penis, you want to look for a realistic feel (not just realistically shaped) dildo. To check, the material will say 'Realistic Feel' and the particular formulation of real feel material will be given in brackets (e.g. Cyberskin).

    Dildo Bases and O-ring Compatability

    Adam and Eve 8 Inch PleasureSkin Dildo

    Last but not least, don't forget to give some thought to the base of your dildo. A balled end will give you total control over a glass dildo if you're looking to thrust hard against the G-spot, while a dildo with a suction cup will let you attach your dildo to any surface for a hands-free ride.

    Flared bases are essential for anal dildos, to stop them going anywhere you don't want them to. A flared base also means you can slide your dildo into the O-ring of a dildo harness for strap-on sex. If the dildo is harness compatible we state it and also let you know which O-ring diameter the dildo is suitable for.
