A dildo is a sex toy, often explicitly phallic in appearance, intended for sexual penetration or other sexual activity during masturbation or with sex partners. Dildos can be made from a number of materials and shaped like erect human penises. Dildos are meant for insertion and normally don’t vibrate—but there are available dildos with vibrations. While they are sometimes meant to feel like a penis, they don’t have to look like one. They come in all different materials, shapes, and sizes. Some dildos are curved in order to stimulate the prostate or g-spot. Dildos can provide internal stimulation to the g-spot, prostate, or other parts of the vagina or anus. They can also play a psychological role in arousal and sex play.
Most dildos are intended for vaginal or anal penetration and stimulation, for masturbation on oneself or by a sexual partner. Dildos have fetishistic value as well and may be used in other ways, such as touching one's own or another's skin in various places, often during foreplay or as an act of dominance and submission. If of appropriate sizes, they can be used as gags, for oral penetration for a sort of artificial fellatio. Dildos, particularly specially designed ones, may be used to stimulate the G-spot area.
How to safely use a dildo? To make the most out of the dildo experience, first, you have to choose the correct size dildo. The size is important so choose carefully and determine according to the girth and length. Unless you know you prefer a wide girth, start small and work your way up. Secondly, consider the material of the dildo. Choose a dildo made with non-porous materials such as body-safe silicone, glass, or metal. Thirdly, use plenty of lubricants, but avoid using silicone lubricants with silicone toys. As most Dildos are made of silicone, start with applying a generous amount of water-based lube to your vagina. Then insert the dildo gently and then you can gauge what type of pace you want to have with it. You may also refer to the manual included with the toy to learn further instructions. Lastly, use a condom if the dildo is made from porous materials and if you’re using it with multiple partners. It is also an important dildo rule that can be applied to all sex toy use that if it's that's just been in an anus, do not put it in a vagina or mouth. The bacteria that live in/on one body part can be transferred to other body parts, which can lead to an infection. That's why it's important to fully clean a dildo before using it for different purposes or with different partners.
