Are you in a couple? Dig in, ‘cuz exploring the world of dildos is going to show you why they are a great sex toy for you both — without a doubt one of the best couples’ sex toys.

Let’s admit that some sex toys are very specific. If you’re not the proud owner of a clit, you might pass by a clit tickler toy. If you’re rocking a vulva, you might not be tempted by a cock ring.

Dildos, on the other hand, are something all couples can equally enjoy. So, here are the top five reasons dildos make a great couple’s toy are:

There is more variation in size when it comes to dildos than in almost any other sex toy. This is very useful for many couples and opens up room to have a range of toy sizes that suit each of you best.

Are you a beginner? Small dildos and probers are slimmer in girth and are more comfortable to use when you’re starting out. They’re also useful if you’re smaller-framed.
