What Are the Different Types of Dildos?

Did you know the oldest recorded dildo is almost 30,000 years old? Humans have been pleasuring themselves (and others) with dildos, and since before historic records began!

It's natural and healthy to use sex toys to enhance your pleasure, either with sexual partners or solo. And lucky for you, you don't live in prehistoric times, so there are many types of dildos to choose from.

No matter your sexuality or gender identity, if you want to try using a dildo, then there are options for you. They are available in all manner of sizes, materials, shapes and can come with lots of exciting extra functions!

So, let's take a look at the different kinds of dildos so you can choose the best dildos for your needs.

Vibrating Dildos

This is one of the most popular types of dildos, the type that vibrates. There are vibrating dildos for both anal and vaginal use, and they can add an extra layer of sexual sensation.

For those with vaginas, you may want to try a dildo popularized by Sex and the City: The Rampant Rabbit. This vibrating dildo has an add-on that looks like rabbit ears, and they stimulate the clitoris.

You can buy realistic-looking dildos or smooth silicone ones. They often have different levels of intensity and types of sensations. Opt for a rechargeable, waterproof vibrating dildo to help save the planet and make your showers more enjoyable.

Realistic Dildos

Realistic dildos are those that resemble real-life male genitalia. They are often flesh-colored with veins, and some have testicles, too. Realistic dildos with testicles are the safest option if you want to use them as an anal sex toy.

If you are buying a dildo that looks realistic, be mindful that some of them are hyper-realistic. This means they are often far larger and have more girth than average penises. Don't let owning an unrealistic-yet-realistic dildo stop you from appreciating the real deal. 

Fantasy Dildos

Does your imagination know no bounds? Do regular dildo options not do anything for you? Then it will please you to learn there are plenty of fantastical dildos for you to enjoy.

Dildos in the shape of tentacles and alien creatures from other worlds are popular. But, some dildos can replicate your favorite film character's members. 

For example, you can get Edward Cullen from Twilight dildos. They sparkle, and if you put them in the fridge, you can experience what it might be like to have a cold-blooded vampire penetrate you. Hey, no one is going to kink shame you here!

Strap-On Dildos

Strap-on dildos are an amazing invention. They allow people without a penis to have penetrative sex with their partners, which is a huge deal for many (no pun intended). 

Imagine wearing a pair of underwear with a dildo attached, and that is pretty much what a strap-on is. If you are in a same-sex female relationship, for example, you can penetrate your partner by wearing one.

Or, if you are in a heteronormative relationship, you can fulfill your pegging fantasies by using a strap-on, too. You can either peg your partner or get pegged yourself. Strap-ons offer you a lot of opportunities to be experimental!

Dildos With Bases and Suctions

Realistic dildos with testicles are the safest option for anal use because anal dildos always need a base. Whilst dildos cannot get "lost" inside a vagina as the cervix is too small to allow anything through, they can get stuck in the anus.

So, that is where dildos with bases and suction cups come in. These parts of the dildo stay outside of the body, ensuring that you can experience sexual sensation in a safe way. 

People of all genders like using dildos with suction cups, too. This means you can attach them to floors, walls, or sturdy furniture and enjoy them hands-free. You can relax, close your eyes, and imagine whatever sexual encounter gets you off.

Double-Headed Dildos 

There are two different types of dildos with two heads. The first type is a double-headed dildo for two people to use at the same time. This could be two people using it as an anal dildo, as a vaginal dildo, or one person using it for the former and one for the latter.

There are tons of possibilities with a double-headed dildo! They're a great way to experience sexual pleasure at the same time as your partner.

People with vaginas are more likely to use another type of double-headed dildo than those with penises. It offers dual anal and vaginal penetration, and you can use it as a solo toy or get your partner to penetrate you with the toy. 

You can use most dildos as a solo or couples toy if that's where the mood takes you.

Non-Phallic Dildos

Some people don't like the look or feel of realistic dildos or anything phallic-shaped. And that's okay! 

Wand-style dildos are smooth, and they often curve to help those with g-spots hit them better. You can also get ones with a beaded design for a ribbed sensation.

And if you fancy getting your 50 Shades of Grey on, there are even dildos with whips on the end, so you can excite and punish your partner if that's your thing.

DIY Dildos

These are the most niche, one-of-a-kind types of dildos for those who enjoy their own or their partner's penis so much that they want a sex toy version of it.

Yes, you can make your own penis into a dildo. Use a penis casting kit to create a mold of the penis. Then, fill the cast with the material you want to make your dildo with, and hey presto, you have your own unique dildo.
