Some people love girth while others prefer the average size. The average diameter of a dildo is 1.5 inches while the average insertable length is 7 inches. If you want something smaller that will not cause discomfort during anal penetration, we recommend a small dildo.
But, if you are not worried about girth and insertable length, you have a variety of sizes to pick. Size matters when it comes to traveling. If you would like to carry your dildo with you on your travels, pick an average size dildo.
This makes it easier to keep the dildo out of sight.
Dildos come in different textures. Some are smooth while others have veins, ripples, ridges, and bumps. Smooth dildos are easy to insert especially during anal penetration. In fact, you can insert a smooth dildo without lube.
Dildos with ridges, veins, and bumps stimulate the vagina. Some consumers swear by the pleasure that textured dildos provide. If you want a dildo that is easy to insert, we recommend a smooth dildo.

Dildos also come in a variety of shapes. You can find colorful ones and realistic dildos. When buying your first dildo, we recommend picking a shape that you find arousing and not intimidating.
A great place to start is an average size smooth dildo. If you are an experienced shopper, you have a huge variety of shapes to pick from. Each is ideal for stimulation. You can find dildos that can stimulate the G-spot, P-pot and other sweet spots.

O-ring Harness Compatibility
Solo plays are great but you can be adventurous as a couple. That means finding a dildo that is O-ring compatible. Harness compatible dildos have a flared base. This means you can slide the dildo into the O-ring for strap-on sex with your partner.
It is important to confirm the O-ring diameter before buying the dildo. You may also come across double-ended dildos. These are also great for couples as you can share. For strapless sex, we recommend a dildo with a suction cup base.
This will allow you to attach the base on any hard surface – glass or tiled wall.
Care and Maintenance

A suction cup dildo is a great addition to anyone’s collection. A glass dildo can be very entertaining as well. You can clean some dildos with mild soap and warm water because many of them are very easy to clean. For others, boiling for three minutes sterilizes the dildo. Sex toys like this can get dirty, so make sure to follow the proper instructions.
This is the quickest and safest way to kill fungus and bacteria. Apart from boiling, you can use rubbing alcohol especially for glass, silicone, stainless-steel and realistic dildos.
Sex toys made from wood need extra care and maintenance. It is important to check the instruction manual in the package. Remember, never boil a PVC dildo. The high temperature of boiling water can ruin your favorite toy.
