Learn the basics of how to choose and use dildos and dongs with our guide below:
Find the toy that suits your preferences. Since there’s such a wide variety of dildos and dongs available, you’ll have an easier time finding one if you consider what you like in a toy first, then find the toy that most closely matches it:
Girth: Most people with vaginas tend to buy an average-sized dildo, but if you like extra fullness, there are plenty of girthy dildos on the market.
Hardness: Silicone is the softest and most lifelike. If you prefer harder pressure, consider a stainless steel or borosilicate glass dildo.
Realism: Dildos and dongs range from lifelike penis replicas to sleek, colorful phalluses to even more fantastical shapes.
Versatility: Some dildos come with extras like suction cup attachments for even more fun. You can also use them with strap-ons for partner sex.

First, test out different speeds and depths of thrust, then try rocking back and forth (especially if you have a suction cup dildo) or specifically stimulating your g-spot. Don’t forget to try different positions!
Learn how to use your dildo or dong with a partner. Deep, satisfying double penetration is a fantasy you can make real with a single partner when you have a dildo or dong handy.
