Buying Your First Dildo

Sun, 07/15/2012 - 14:15 -- kylerichtig

Have you always wanted to buy a dildo, but been afraid to make the leap? Making your first purchase means more than just grabbing something off the shelf. Know what you like before spending too much money.

Where do you shop?

Dildos are available at adult only stores. You may find them at stores that specialize in adult videos or lingerie. There are three major options:

Local store - not always the easiest for shy people.

Store on vacation - if you are worried that your friends and neighbours may see you purchasing a dildo, visit an adult store when you are in another town.

Online - there are definitely the most options for dildos online. It is difficult to judge quality online unless you have purchased from the vendor before.

Length

When choosing a length of dildo, think about how deep you like penetration. Make sure your dildo is long enough to satisfy you. Because you control the depth of the penetration yourself, longer dildos do not have to be painful. Do not judge your dildo based on how you have experienced long penises. They are harder to control.

Width

Dildos can be used for anal or vagina stimulation. Consider what you plan to use your dildo for when choosing a width. Unlike dildo length, the width cannot be controlled in use. A dildo with too much girth will be a waste of money if you cannot use it. If you have chosen a size that is too large, do not force yourself. It is better to have wasted your money than injure yourself. Be conservative when selecting the width of your first dildo.

Material

Dildos are available in different materials such as glass, rubber, silicone, and plastic. Choosing a material can be as difficult as choosing a size. Glass, silicone and plastic options are favorable for cleaning, as they are all non-porous materials. Rubber dildos are porous and can harbour bacteria, but often tend to be the cheaper options. Whatever the option, be sure to clean your dildo between uses.

Dildos have existed since at least the upper Paleolithic (30,000 years ago). That there is one perfect dildo that works for everyone. Make sure you are realistic about your own body's ability to accommodate your dildo. Starting with a smaller item will give you a chance to find out what you like without wasting your money.
