How to Use a Dildo for Beginners

Traditionally, a dildo is a phallic shaped item used to simulate penile intercourse.

What is a Dildo?

Dildos are available in a wide variety of materials. Earlier models were usually made of some sort of rubber in order to create a more lifelike, realistic feeling. However, most reputable manufacturers have moved away from the jelly/skin material as it is more likely to degrade quickly and impossible to completely sterilize. Dildos are now available in stainless steel, glass, and medical grade silicone.

Starting at 4” and smaller girths for beginners, to the “great American challenge,” a 2.5’ long dildo that’s commonly bought for use as a party favor, dildos are available in many shapes and sizes. They are also available in every shade of the rainbow, from a variety of flesh colors to psychedelic tie-dye.

Dildos by definition do not vibrate, but ‘vibrating dildos’ commonly refer to vibrators that appear realistic. Although commonly they are made to look like realistic penises, as dildos become more in demand and the market expands, it’s becoming more common place to find insertable toys meant for penetration that are brightly colored and hardly recognizable as phallic. Some brands even make dildos that are very intentionally shaped for those with phallic aversions – they instead are shaped more like fingers or soft curves.

How much are Dildos?

Dildos are available for every type of budget. As with everything in life, you get what you pay for. You can find inexpensive dildos starting around $15-20 but the material may not be body safe and isn’t recommended for long term use. For serious users, extremely realistic high quality silicone toys and sterling silver dildos can go up to around $150 – these luxury toys are considered investments, however, since they will last for a lifetime.

How to clean a Dildo?

Always clean your sex toy using hot water and mild soap or anti-microbial Toy Cleaner. Medical grade silicone toys are non-porous so they are easy to sanitize. Glass dildos can be boiled to sanitize – some are even dishwasher-safe! It’s important to clean your toy before and after each use. Anti-microbial boxes and bags are the best way to store them.

Who invented Dildos?

Archeologists found the ‘world’s oldest known dildo’ in a cave in Germany that is dated to the Upper Palaeolithic era 30,000 years ago. Ancient Greeks and Egyptians also used dildos made of items like stone, tar, and wood (as can be seen in some ancient vase art.) The Greek comedy Lysistrata mentions ‘leather’ dildos several times; and Herodas’ wrote a play in the 3rd century BC that explicitly calls the dildo by name.

Throughout history, humans have always found a way to fashion phallic items out of any available resource. Mentions of dildos continue to appear in literature throughout history, from Shakespeare’s The Winter’s Tale to William S. Burrough’s Naked Lunch. Although we can speculate that humans have probably been using these devices for sexual stimulation throughout millennia, they have also been used as objects of reverence and worship as in fertility rites.
