Your First Dildo: 5 Tips for Choosing the Right One for You

If you have started exploring the idea of bringing some sex toys into the bedroom, then a dildo is a great one to start with. Even if it's your first dildo or first time using a dildo, you will not feel overwhelmed by the task as dildos are pretty much fail-proof.

More so, according to the Kinsey Institute, 70% of women need some kind of clitoral stimulation to orgasm. Vaginal penetration alone doesn't do it for some. 

That doesn't mean that there's anything wrong with you. Not at all. It's just the way your body's built.

So now that you are ready for the joys of sex toys, let's see take a look at five tips on how to pick a dildo that's best for you and your needs. 

1. Size Definitely Does Matter

The question of whether size matters or not has come to an end when it comes to dildos. When picking a dildo, the size will definitely be a prime consideration. 

The average dildo has a diameter of 1.5" and a length of 7". But you might have a different preference. Longer? Thicker? Choose the one that fits your desires and needs.

2. Pick the Material You Like the Feel of

Dildos are made of many different materials. If you are going to sterilize your toy (if used with several different partners), then you would want something non-porous, like silicone, glass, wood, or stainless steel. 

If you want something bendy or pliable, you would want PVC or silicone. It all depends on what you are looking for. 

3. Don't Forget About Clean up After

Every toy will have to be cleaned up after. It's a given with all the ooey-gooey juices on it. So remember that you would want something easy to clean, without a lot of nooks and crannies.

You don't want to spend all your post-orgasm time cleaning up a sex toy. It would totally kill the mood.

4. Think About the Base of the Dildo

The base of the dildo is far important than most people realize. A flared base is something a lot of people swear by. It's easier to hold on to, and if you are using a strap-on harness, it's easier with a flared base dildo. 

5. Add-On Features for the Win

Buying your first dildo? Hurray. It's a great step forward for you because buying a dildo also implores you to start asking some important questions about your pleasure needs.

What are you most interested in? Do you want a dildo that's hands-free? Or one with a lot of vibrations settings? These answers will dictate your first dildo buying experience.

A First Dildo Is a Great Growing up Moment - Savour It

The first dildo that you buy is something you will remember forever after. It's like your first kiss or your first orgasm. 

With online stores galore, there's nothing you need to worry about. If you are uncomfortable walking into a store, online options will do you just fine. They even ship to you with a generic package, so no one knows what you've bought.
