So, what actually is a dildo, anyway?

Ok, if you’re thinking of buying a dildo you probably have some basic idea of what it is and what it can do. But lets take a moment to quickly introduce what a dildo actually is and what may soon become you’re staple sex toy go to.

Put simply a dildo is a sex toy, often shaped similarly to a penis and primarily designed for penetration. Originally dildos were designed to stimulate only internal spots, (G spots and P spots). However dildos now come in a wide range or shapes, sizes and textures with a variety or sensations to stimulate internally and externally, leading to some seriously mind-blowing blended orgasms. Whether you’re craving something sleek and smooth for a gentle glide, or textured and tantalising for those extra thrills, there’s a perfect dildo out there just for you. And the best part? You’re in complete control.

Why do people use a dildo?

People use dildos for a multitude of reasons, and boy, are they good ones! Some folks aren’t attracted to penises but still enjoy the sensation of penetration. Others love the freedom to pick the perfect size, color, shape, and sometimes even the speed or rotation settings of their plaything. With a dildo, you always know where it’s been, who’s been using it, and how recently it’s been washed – no surprises there! Unlike penetrative sex, you have total control of a dildo and just the way you like it. Dildos also come with a ton of perks: they don’t require emotional labor, don’t have expectations of you (even if you’ve spent the day lounging in your comfiest pajamas!). They don’t complain, they don’t cheat, and they certainly don’t come with performance issues. (Sorry, rant over. Wait, not quite, they also don’t whine about the size of previous dildos you’ve used. Rant over). When you’re done, just toss your trusty dildo into the sink with a spritz of Simply Toy Cleaner, into the bedside drawer, and call it a day. In short, dildos bring pleasure by the truckload without the hassle, making them a fabulous addition to anyone’s bedside table!

Are there different types of dildo?

You betcha. The world of dildos is as diverse and exciting as the people who use them. Whether you’re looking for something classic and straightforward or a bit more adventurous, there’s a perfect dildo out there for everyone.

Let’s dive into the many types of dildos available and discover what each one brings to the table (or the bedroom).

How (the heck) to use a Dildo.

Using a dildo, seems pretty self explanatory right? For the most part yes, but if you are new to the wonderful world of dildos, or simply want to make sure you’ve got all the knowledge to get the most out of your new purchase, here are few pointers to help you on your way.

Setting the Mood

Creating the right ambiance is key. Dim the lights, light a scented candle, and put on some sultry music. Make sure you’re comfortable and uninterrupted. Lock the door, lay down a towel if needed, and maybe even pick up your favorite erotic book to get things started. The goal is to make this time all about you.

Choosing the Right Dildo

The world of dildos is vast and varied. From sleek steel and colorful silicone to beautifully crafted glass, there’s something for everyone. Consider what you enjoy: if you love hard stimulation, go for glass or metal. For extra sensations, a vibrating dildo might be your best bet. Size, shape, and material are all personal preferences – the right dildo for you is out there!

Don’t Forget About Warmup

Before diving in, warming up is essential. Start with manual stimulation, using your fingers or a smaller toy to get things going. Use plenty of our organic Simply Lube to increase comfort and pleasure. Once you’re aroused and ready, your dildo experience will be even more enjoyable.

Techniques for Maximum Pleasure

Here are some techniques to elevate your dildo play:

Go Deep: This technique involves thrusting the dildo along the entire length of your vagina. It’s intense and deeply satisfying, especially with a textured dildo.

Short n’ Shallow: Focus on the first third of your vagina, where the most sensitive nerve endings are. Short, rapid strokes can be incredibly pleasurable and easier on the wrists.

Rocker: Instead of thrusting, try rocking the dildo back and forth. This can apply pressure to different areas and provide unique sensations.

Add a twist: Rotate the dildo inside you for a different kind of stimulation. Some dildos are specifically designed for this motion, but most will work.

G-Spot Serenade: Drag the top part of the dildo across your G-Spot as you pull it out, then push it against the top of your vagina as you slide it back in. This technique is perfect for rigid toys.

Fingers Feeling: Sometimes, just keeping the dildo inside while stimulating your clit can enhance your orgasm.
Temperature Play: Warm or cool your dildo for a new sensation. Just make sure the temperature is safe and comfortable before use.

Anal Play: If you enjoy anal stimulation, your dildo can provide incredible pleasure. Remember to use plenty of lube and clean your toy thoroughly afterward.

Double Penetration: Combine your dildo with another toy or your partner for an exciting double penetration experience.

Put On A Show: Use your dildo techniques to put on a show for your partner. This can be incredibly exciting and a great way to share your pleasure. Perhaps you want your hands free and opt to use a suction cup dildo on a vertical surface?

Mix It Up & Experiment: Try different techniques and positions to discover what you enjoy most. Variety is the spice of life!

All About The A Spot: Don’t forget about the A Spot, located near your cervix. Applying constant pressure here can be extremely satisfying.

Position Perfect: Experimenting with different positions can help you find what works best for you. Lying down, facing down, sitting, or even riding a suction cup dildo can change the sensations and make playtime more enjoyable.

Cleaning Your Dildo: Why and How

All good things must come to an end, and after a satisfying session with your dildo, it’s time to clean up. Proper cleaning is essential to maintain your intimate health and ensure your toy is ready for your next adventure. Here’s why and how to keep your dildo in top condition.
Why Cleaning is Important
Cleaning your dildo is crucial for several reasons. First and foremost, it ensures hygiene. Bodily fluids and lube can harbor bacteria and other microorganisms, so cleaning prevents infections and keeps you healthy (thrush absolutely s.u.c.k.s). Additionally, regular cleaning helps maintain the integrity and durability of your dildo, ensuring it lasts longer. Finally, a clean toy is a fresh toy. Proper cleaning keeps your dildo smelling and feeling pleasant, ready for the next use.

How to Clean Your Dildo

Luckily, cleaning your dildo is a straightforward process, especially with our Simply Toy Cleaner spray. Here’s a simple step-by-step guide:

  1. Start by rinsing your dildo under warm water to remove any immediate residues.
  2. Then, spritz your dildo with our Natural Love Company Simply Toy Cleaner. Its unique antibacterial, water-based formula makes the job easy and effective. Allow the cleaner to sit for a moment, giving it time to work its antibacterial magic.
  3. Next, rinse the dildo thoroughly under warm water to remove any remaining cleaner and residues.
  4. Finally, pat the dildo dry with a clean towel or let it air dry completely before storing it away in its TNLC cotton drawstring bag.

Why Choose Simply Toy Cleaner?

Our Simply Toy Cleaner is designed to make post-play cleanup a breeze. It ensures your toy is free from harmful bacteria, thanks to its antibacterial properties. The water-based formula is gentle on your toys, preserving their material and finish. And it’s incredibly easy to use – just spritz, wait, and rinse. It’s that simple.

Final Thoughts on Using Your Dildo

Ignore the Instructions – Use your dildo in whatever way feels best for you. Experimentation is key to discovering what brings you the most pleasure. What If You Don’t Like It? – Not every technique will work for everyone. Your preferences can change based on various factors like your menstrual cycle, stress, or fatigue. Keep experimenting to keep things fresh and exciting.

Using these tips and techniques, you can maximize your pleasure and enjoy every moment of your dildo play. Happy exploring!
