Dildos are one of the necessities and must have items a person has to have in their littletoy box. You can use a dildo for both vaginal and anal penetration, but you will need to know the difference between the two so you can choose the right one for your activity. There are a great variety of dildos out there so it can get a little bit overwhelming, but as long as you do your research and take suggestions into account, everything should be just fine.
Now, a very important aspect of things will be to decide if you want to use your dildo for vaginal or for anal penetration. I’m telling you this because all dildos can be used for vaginal penetration, but only some can be used for anal penetration. How to recognize if your dildo is safe for anal penetration? Well, it’s easy. Anal dildos are completely smooth and have a flared base. That base is important because otherwise, the dildo can slip all the way to the rectum and you don’t want that.
You can use the same dildo for anal and vaginal penetration, only if you are following safe measures. It’s better to just use a condom with each use; you should never, ever switch between the orifices without changing condoms first. And for extra precautions, you can always boil the dildo between each use.
One of the most important things to keep in mind is the dildo doesn’t have something extra like a vibration, so in a way you can say you are getting what you see. That is why is so important to understand the piece you want to get and be completely sure about it before you get one.
Size is a very important aspect when it comes to dildos. You may be tempted to buy a really big one, but don’t go over the rails! Especially if you’re a beginner, a smaller dildo will do the trick. Trust me, nobody wants to be put in the position when the dildo they just got is too big…just trust me on this one, wink*.
In order to choose a size, just think about the size of other things you’ve used for penetration as a reference, like a finger, a toy or a penis, for instance. If this will be your first time being penetrated, don’t start with the dildo right away: it’s best to try with a finger first or a smaller toy before you move on to the dildo. And don’t forget the lube!
Once you’ve figured out the size, you can pick a shape. There are several models you can choose from. There are some that are just like the real thing, with an identical penis shape and even veins, to others less realistic with just the general shape. You can also pick from different colors; they also come in great varieties ranging from very natural looking colors to bright pink or purple. It will depend on what turns you on, really.
