Silicone Dildos – The Perfect Dildo!

Sexy Lady Holding Silicone DildoLooking for the perfect all-purpose dildo, but not sure which material is right for you? There are so many great options out there, but silicone dildos have become a beloved regular player for both solo and partnered play–really any time you want to get sexy with toys. You can find silicone dildos in a plethora of shapes, sizes, and colors; finding the right soft dildo has never been easier!

Here are just some of the reasons silicone dildos are a great choice:

Hypoallergenic and Easy to Clean

These may not be the first two things you think about when evaluating your sex toy options, but as any seasoned professional has learned (and for once we’re hoping *not* the hard way), there are many materials out there that can cause a negative reaction when inserted into the body, thanks to allergies to the material itself or from bacteria transferred between the toy and its user. A 100% silicone dildo rarely causes allergic reactions. Furthermore, the non-porous nature of silicone makes it very easy to clean thoroughly. Not every soft dildo can be disinfected as well as a silicone dildo.

Fleshy Flexibility

Although it is true that there are other dildo materials out that that are similarly non-porous like glass and acrylic, these materials are very hard and stiff, qualities that can be fun, but are not for everyone, and maybe not for all the time. Silicone dildos come in a wide range of firmnesses–there’s something for everyone! Whether you may prefer a softer, more malleable dildo, or something firm but still flexible, silicone has got you covered. A silicone dildo will also adjust to the body’s temperature rather quickly, enhancing the realistic feeling in a way few other materials can.

All the Colors and Shapes and Sizes, Oh My!

Silicone is a very versatile material, making it a fun and fantastic choice for sex toys. Silicone dildos can be brightly colored, translucent, bumpy, ridged, smooth, or curved–as out there or as true to life as you could want. Although dildos are traditionally more of a manually operated toy, vibrating models are also available. Before you buy, think about the qualities that you find the most important–there may be a single product out there that will satisfy most of them, or you could revel in starting a wildly varied collection of sizes, shapes, textures, and colors.

Harnessing Next Level Fun

Many silicone dildos are manufactured with a flat base, making them perfect for use as a strap on for a little extra fun in the bedroom with your partner(s). If you are considering using your silicone dildo with a harness, please note that you may want to use a longer, softer dildo–the harness will take up a good half inch of length. Be sure the recipient is comfortable with the dildo being used, whether orally, vaginally,  or anally, and depending on the type of play, you may want to consider using a smaller, smoother model.

Toy Care

Water-based lubricants work well with silicone, but steer clear of silicone-based lubes for your silicone dildo, as it will compromise the material and shorten the lifespan of your toy. Be sure to thoroughly clean your toys with soap and warm water after every use. Silicone is very durable and can last a very long time, however, if you see that your dildo is beginning to show wear or has a tear, it’s time to discard it and purchase a new one.

There’s no doubt that silicone will continue to be a favorite material for many years to come (and come again). The next time you shop for sex toys online, consider adding a silicone dildo to your collection. You won’t regret it!
