The use of dildos is quite widespread, and a recent survey in a monthly magazine, Glow, reported that 20 percent of young professional women between the ages of 24 and 35 wear a dildo most of the time. Masturbation has been shown to have health benefits and can be used to improve sex lives through self-discovery.
What is a dildo www.mytoyfirst.com/realistic-dildos?
There is some controversy about what a dildo is. The general consensus is that a non-vibrating device that resembles the shape, size and overall appearance of a penis is a dildo. Women are now more likely to associate vibrating devices with this definition. Prosthetic aids or penis extenders can also be included, as can sex toys/anal penetration aids such as butt plugs, although not everyone associates them with dildos.
The Development of Dildos
Believe it or not, the use of sex toys can be traced back through history. The oldest dildo in the world is a 20 cm siltstone phallus found in a cave in Germany, dating to 30,000 years ago. It is believed that ancient Egyptians began using dildos more than 2,500 years ago.
Early dildos were made of wood, leather and pottery. In the 1940s, technology stepped in thank goodness, PVC and rubber were introduced, and steel springs were introduced to increase hardness.
Now, we girls have silicone dildos that are easy to keep clean, inexpensive and perfect for first time use. The latest material to gain traction is Pyrex glass, which is expensive and inflexible, but some women just like the feel of it.
How to use a dildo
Dildos have many uses, but the most common use, besides vaginal/clitoral stimulation, is for fetish purposes. Partners can use them for foreplay and run them over their skin. They can be used for anal penetration and even for oral penetration if they are the right size. People often use them as a form of artificial oral sex.
The wonderful world of dildos
There are so many options for dildos to come in all sorts of shapes that can even be twice as fun as double ending in the right setting. There are inflatable dildos, dildos with balls, horn based dildos, and even dildos with suction cups for control (which can be placed on inanimate objects).
What should I look for when buying a dildo?
The three main aspects to consider when buying a dildo are shape, material and color. Women want something that looks and feels good in their hands. Most dildos are made of rubber. Even with rubber, there are different types; jelly rubber is popular and comes in interesting colors.
Silicone is better quality and has the added benefit of retaining body heat well, it is flexible, non-porous and can be boiled and sterilized. Silicone also feels great when vibrating and is great for clitoral stimulation. Silicone comes in a large range of sizes, shapes and colors, so you can really find something that works for you.
Hard plastic dildos are inflexible and many women just don’t like the feel. If women use these, then it is often only for a short time. I would suggest that hard plastic is really only suitable for more experienced dildo users.
When buying a dildo, really think about what you want from them and it is better to start small than to go for a dildo that is too big. Dildos aren’t cheap and they certainly aren’t returnable, so a jelly rubber dildo might be the ideal starting point for a novice.
