Intro

The dildo is the most ancient sex toy to grace us with its existence with its origins tracing as far back as the end of the Paleolithic age.

Entering the modern age, while being as simple and straightforward as it gets when it comes to sex toys, the dildo comes in more variations than any other type of toy.
And understandably so since vaginas and bums are as varied as people are.
So it's quite easy to get lost with all the choices available today. 

To make things even more complicated, most dildos come in unsafe, porous & straight-up toxic materials.

But you shouldn't get discouraged since I didn't earn my nickname in vain.
And as always, Jim the Dildo Dealer is here to save the day!

So if you're having a hard time deciding on the perfect dil for you or a friend, by the end of this article, you should be up to speed with everything you need to know to make an informed decision. 

Before anything, if you're planning on using these for anal sex, make sure that the models you go with come with a base or a suction cup.
This is because a lack of any sort of stopper can put you at risk of losing your sex toys in the depth of yourself.
And that always makes for an embarrassing visit to the ER!


Also, make sure to see our guide on what lubes to use as well as how to clean your toys to avoid any complications.


Standard Dildos

best dildo guide standard

If you couldn't care less about all the bells and whistles the modern age has blessed us with and just want something nice to squeeze on, nothing beats a good old standard dildo.

These can be either realistic or abstract and if you're quite the size queen, there are plenty of large options as well.
So no matter what your sexual or aesthetic preferences are, there's an option for you.

Being relatively simple to make, there are also plenty of great indie toy makers making beautiful and unique dildos that borderline on fine art like Uberrime, BS Atelier, Funkit, and Split Peaches, amongst many others. 

This also means that if you're infinitely picky or crafty, it's not impossible to make your own dildos from home as well.

Silicone may be the standard body-safe material for dildos, but there are still plenty of affordable & classy glass options to be found.

But don't worry about them shattering on you since they're made out of the same resilient material used in Pyrex kitchenware.
So unless you like mixing getting off and extreme sports together, you should be fine.

Most of the run of the mill dildos usually come equipped with a base.
So they're almost all safe to be used anally as well as being compatible with most strap-ons and universal sex machine adapters as well.

Additionally, while they can't be mounted to walls and floors like their suction cup counterparts, Toy holders are a great option for those looking for some hands-free action.

 


Suction Cup Dildos

best dildo guide suction cup

A good suction cup dildo is the classic choice for hands-free pleasure.

But before we get started, it's worth noting that any suction cup dildo works best on smooth surfaces like tiles, glass, metal or plastic.
The better the suction cup dildo the more it'll be able to stick to more textured surfaces. But in any case, the smoother the better.

Pressing hard when securing your dildos to surfaces also makes a world of difference. This is especially true for trickier suction cups.

If you're running out of comfortable smooth surfaces to use, there are a few options available to you. 
Some people use books or DVD boxes with glossy covers in bed to give them a comfortable surface to ride on.
This is particularly useful for people who love being intellectually stimulated as much as sexually.

Another way to Macgyver surfaces into usable ones is to stick a square of packing tape over an incompatible textured spot of your choosing. And now your suction cup dildo is much more likely to stick! 
If the surface is especially bumpy, you might have to layer extra squares to get the desired result.

Otherwise, the very affordable Tom V2 Suction cup dildo mount works great for doggy style and performs ok when used riding cowgirl as well.
And if you want something even more versatile, the Love Arc is the best suction cup dildo mount we know of.

 

Affordable Suction Cup Dildos

If you're into realistic toys, the more rigid and textured Colours, as well as the squishier Coloursoft & Colours dual-density dildos, are all great affordable toys with plenty of color choices.

suction cup dildo

And while not that aesthetically realistic, the natural feeling Realnude dildos by Blush have some of the best suction cups found on any dual-density toys.
Which is surprising coming from such an affordable option.

Otherwise, for those who prefer less realistic dildos, the beautifully designed Avant toys, as well as the vibrating Nude Impressions, are both pretty hard to miss.

 

High-End Suction Cup Dildos

If you have a taste for the finer things there are no shortage of options for you either.

Suction cup dildoVixen Creation's Vixskin Dildos are probably some of the best dual-density toys out there, and they make a few models with suction cups as well.
While their suction cups can be a little tricky, and usually work better on horizontal surfaces, the simple fact that you get to enjoy Vixskin toys hands-free is a big plus in our book.

The models in question are the Maverick, Mustang, Tex, Vixskin Randy, as well as the non-realistic Raquel.

Otherwise, if you'd rather have a vibrating toy, the Luxe Touch-Sensitive Dildos are another great alternative.
With these rechargeable toys, the deeper you stroke, the stronger the vibrations get, which results in a strangely organic and pleasurable experience.

 

The Tantus Suction Cup

The removable suction cup by Tantus is made to fit into almost any vibrating bullet hole that can be found on a variety of dildos and butt plugs.

One of the best features is that it is made of medical grade silicone, so it can be fully sanitized along with your other body-safe toys.

Suction cup dildo

And while vibrating Tantus' toys are the logical option to get along with this attachment, there are a ton of other compatible dildos to choose from.
But speaking of Tantus, there's a special place in our heart for their beautiful dual density O2 toys.  
And you'll be happy to learn that SamAlanJohn Doe and the non-realistic Duchess all come with Bullet holes.

Otherwise, If you like your toys as realistic and detailed as humanly possible, some Fleshjack dildos come with bullet holes, suction cup included!
It's not clearly stated if it is indeed a rebranded Tantus suction cup that is included.
But if it is not the case, it's a near perfect copy.

While they are not made of dual density Vixskin, Vixen creations also have a few models with Tantus compatible sockets.
And don't be mistaken, their basic silicone is still great silicone and it'll give you more of a squish than most other brands. 
The compatible toys are the Leo Vibe, Mistress Vibe, Woody Vibe, Champlette Vibe, and the great Tristan 1 & 2 butt plugs.

Of course, there are a ton of other toys with bullet vibe holes and it would probably take a whole article to go through them.
But these quality options should get you started on your merry way!

Vac-U-Lock Suction Cup

The Vac-U-Lock suction cups from Doc Johnson are a bit hit and miss. 
Being a bit too rigid, they'll only work on very smooth surfaces, like glass, tiles, metallic surfaces and plastic.

suction cup dildo

The real advantage with going with Vac-U-Lock is just the sheer amount of accessories and toys that you can get for the system.

You can choose between their basic small suction cup that comes included with most kits or the larger model ( seen above ) that is supposed to work better with bigger toys.

Just avoid their deluxe suction cup, since it's a pretty flimsy and ineffective build. A real shame since, if done well, this could've been a great attachment.

And while the basic suction cup usually comes in boring old white, depending on where you shop, you can get a Black or Red suction cup as well!

If you want to learn more about all the silicone toys that are compatible with that system, makes sure to read all about it in our dedicated Vac-U-Lock article.

 

NYTC's Double Sided Suction Cup

Oh New York Toy Collective, how you never cease to bless us with outstanding goods for the bedroom.
And their double-sided suction cup is no exception to the rule.

suction cup dildo

NYTC's Double-Sided Suction Cup is meant to be used on almost any standard dildo with a flat base. 
So as long as they have a surface of more or less 2.5 inches in diameter and up, you should be fine. 

This cheap silicone suction cup can be fully sanitized and can support up to 3 pounds in weight.
So of course, if you enjoy dildos on the larger end of the spectrum, this suction cup might not be enough.

Like most suction cups, it sticks best to smooth surfaces and it'll have a hard time with more textured surfaces. But our packing tape fix mentioned in the intro should help in most cases.

 


Vibrating & Thrusting Dildos

best dildo guide vibrating and thrusting

Oh electricity, how you make almost anything better.

Yet, strangely enough, compared to their body-safe equivalent, toxic and porous dildos have tons of vibrating and thrusting options to choose from.
Which is a shame really, since most of us wouldn't want to trade health for fun.

Well, ladies and gentlemen, I'm here to tell you that you can have your cake and eat it too.
And while there isn't as much choice as we'd like in that department, there are still plenty of hidden gems at your disposal.

 

Vibrating Dildos

Vibrating dildos are pretty appealing for their versatility.

They're obviously geared towards providing internal vibrations during play but they also double beautifully as external toys, allowing you to alternate between the two during masturbation.

best Vibrating dildo guide

For those looking for a standard all-in-one solution, most of the decent choices we know of are from Fun Factory.

The beloved German company has a wide selection vibrating dildos ranging from affordable options to high-end devices. 

Of course, the more you'll spend the rumblier and the more powerful the vibrations will get with their G5 toys being the strongest.

But even their cheapest toys are well worth it for those who tend to be on the more sensitive side of the spectrum.

We-Vibe Rave vibrating g-spot dildo

While a bit more G-spot toy than Dildo, We-Vibe's Rave is just so good it couldn't stay out of this list.

It's straight enough to be used as a dildo and if the need arises, the subtle curve is perfect for g-spot stimulation. 

But the real attraction here is the bone-rattling, rumbly as hell vibrations it provides.

Couple this with the fact that you can penetrate, pry and even rotate the toy ( thanks to its asymmetrical design ) and you've got one versatile powerhouse of a toy.

Body-safe Suction cup vibrating dildos may be the rare unicorn of the sex toy world, but as mention above, there are a few quality options out there.

To save you some scrolling time, we're talking about the affordable Nude Impressions and the touch-sensitive Luxe by Blush.

 

Bullet Vibe Dildos

Finally, where you'll find the most choices is from Dildos with "Bullet Holes".
These usually come with either no vibrators or a lackluster one, but don't fret since they can easily be replaced by powerful bullet vibes.

Tango We-Vibe bullet vibe dildo guide

Dildos with standard bullet holes are spoiled with compatible vibrators.
And most importantly, they can accommodate the universally loved king of rumbles: We-Vibe's Tango.

But if you can't dish out the dineros for it at the moment, you can always get the rumbly and cheap Vooom by Screaming-O and still have a blast.

If you need suggestions for dildos that come equipped with standard bullet holes, just scroll back up to the Tantus suction cup entry where we gave plenty of suggestions.

bullet hole dildo guide

Dildos with Vac-U-Lock holes are a bit less lucky when it comes to compatible vibrators since the hole found on these are larger than most bullet holes.

Still, the previously mentioned Vooom, as well as the powerful and affordable Sensuelle Point and Exposed Nocturnal Lipstick, are all compatible and powerful enough to have the vibrations travel through the silicone of your dildo.

And for those who need all the power in the world, there's also a great Magic-Wand Vac-U-Lock attachment that'll allow you to secure your dildos directly onto your wand.

If you need dildo suggestions to go along with these, make sure to read the dedicated entry in our Vac-U-Lock guide.

 

Thrusting Dildos

When want to prevent your wrists from growing tired or you'd just rather have some machine do all the work for you, you know you can trust thrusting dildos!

Fun Factory stronic thrusting dildo

With their Stronic Line, Fun Factory was one of the first in the body-safe thrusting dildo game.
The way they achieve this is a little different than most thrusting dildos.

More shake weight than mini sex machine, these toys rock back and forth by themselves with no apparent mechanical parts moving about.

This results in a very organic and natural experience ranging from slower back and forth motions to fast, almost vibration-like, pulses. 

They do have a bit of a learning curve to them though.
If you want your Stronic to move around freely, you will have to learn to relax around your toy instead of clenching onto it.
And of course, the less textured the dildo you choose is, the more actual sliding around the toys will do.

best thrusting dildo guide

If you'd rather have more mechanical back and forth motions instead of pulsations, the Velvet Thrusters got you covered.
While they are, in our humble opinion, butt ugly, they are some of the best portable thrusting body-safe dildos for sale today.

These hand-held fuck machines also come in a few realistic and abstract variations, but sadly, you're stuck with only one dated color.

Speaking of Fuck Machines, if you're looking for pure power and if you have space for them, these are absolutely the best way to go about hands-free penetration.
And while most of them come equipped with Vac-U-Lock adaptors by default, plenty of them also have optional universal dildo adaptors for them.

So as long as your dildo has a base, testicles or a suction cup, you should be able to strap them on and have a blast.

 


Dual-Density Dildos

best dual density dildo guide

Earlier on, we briefly discussed dildo firmness, but if you want the best of all worlds, you should definitely consider Dual Density Dildos.

Thanks to their squishy exterior and firm inner core, they provide one of the most satisfyingly natural experiences dildos have to offer.

To make your shopping a little easier, we've ordered these by price starting with the cheapest!

best realistic dildo

Blush's Realnude dildos are semi-realistic and extremely cheap for what they have to offer.

With a similar squish to the ever popular Vixskin toys and a stiffer core, they might not be as bendy as the beloved classic choice.
But the suction cup you'll find on these are some of the best in the dual-density toy world.

Dual density colours dildo guide

The Dual Density Colours is another affordable option with great suction cups.
We don't know what the deal is with cheap dual density dildos and amazing suction cups, but we sure won't complain about it!

They're also some of the most textured and realistic of the bunch thanks to their detailed & veiny shafts. These come in two sizes and multiple color choices.
The Colours are also a tad squishier than the Truskyn toys.

truskyn best dual density dildo guide

Doc Johnson's Truskyn is squishier than Tantus's O2 with more flexible cores allowing for a bit more of a bend during play.
And their Tru Curve is probably one of the best G-Spotting dildos around. 

The Truskyn line offers cheaper abstract and semi-realistic toys as well as more expensive realistic dildos.

best dual density dildo guide splendid

Uberrime's Splendid is coming from one of our favorite Indie toy makers.

It has a firmness on par with the Truskyn toys, but it is way more visually appealing than what the Doc has to offer.
The Splendid's realistic shape is balanced with abstract colors and its subtle curve is great for G-spot stimulation as well.

o2 best dual density dildo guide

Tantus' O2 has the firmest outer layer of the bunch and comes with a ton of options to choose from.
These range from Realistic to beautiful abstract options and every model benefits from Tantus' signature minimalistic design sensitivity.

They also have a few options that are compatible with the Tantus suction cup, as well as bullet vibes, being the Sam, Alan and John Doe.

Suction cup dildo

Vixen Creation's Vixskin dildos are arguably some of the most popular and best dual-density toys available today.
It's no mystery why since they were pretty much the first ones in the game, inspiring all these other companies to follow suit.
They also have one of the largest selection of models and colors as well as rocking some of the squishiest outer layers you'll ever find. 

While most of their options are quite realistic, they do offer some abstract and marbled colors to balance it out.
Otherwise, Raquel is probably the only fully Abstract model they hold.

Best realistic dildoNYTC's Dildos all come in a form of dual-density.
Their Pack-N-Play dildos are some of the best G-spotting and Pegging toys around and come with a posable metallic spine as their core layer.

Alternatively, their uncircumcised Ellis and Leroy come with a more traditional silicone core and are beautifully realistic.

Their firmness is closer to the RealNude and Vixskin toys.
And just like Vixen Creations, while their dildos are quite realistic, they offer plenty of beautiful abstract color choices.

Best dual density dildo guide realcock 2

The RealCock 2 by the makers of the RealDoll is probably the most realistic dildo ever made.
And while they call it triple-density, the third layer is really there just for aesthetic reasons, so it shouldn't feel that much different than other dual-density toys.

The Floating balls are also a very nice realistic touch and are a blast to play with.
Realdoll's RealCock 2 comes in two different sizes with the smallest of the two having a Vac-U-Lock hole.

Obviously, the RealCock 2 is also the most expensive of all the dual density toys. 
But for those with money to spare that just love a realistic dildo, it doesn't get much better than this.

Alternatively, if we were to rate these by squish, starting with the hardest, it would probably look a little something like this:

  • O2
  • Truskyn
  • Splendid
  • Colours
  • Realnude
  • NYTC
  • Vixskin
  • RealCock 2.

 


Dual/"Strapless" & Double Ended Dildos

best lesbian toys

For those who'd like to invite someone else to play with, these dildos are some of the best toys to "bring people together"

And while Dual/"Strapless" dildos are better suited for lesbian couples and heterosexual pegging, double-ended dildos are perfect for anyone who enjoys penetration.

 

Dual/"Strapless" Dildos

First of all, "Strapless" dildos are NOT made to be used without a strap-on.

This doesn't mean these toys aren't great, quite the opposite. It only means that they're victims of consistent false advertising.

The real appeal of these toys is that they provide stimulation to both the top and bottom during strap-on play.

So if you'd like some good strap-on suggestions that are compatible with these, you should definitely look at Spareparts, Aslan Leather, and Rodeoh.

Also, most of the models offered come with rather bad vibes, so investing in something like the powerful Tango by We-Vibe will go a long way.

With the disclaimers out of the way, here are some of the most popular models:

best lesbian toys

The Feeldoes & Realdoes are so popular they've become synonymous with "strapless" dildos like Kleenex is to tissue paper.
All models are rather rigid, so if hard toys aren't your thing, you might have to consider the other toys below.

The Feeldoes are non-realistic with shiny finish while the Realdoes are a realistic looking alternative with a matte finish.

Both models come in 4 sizes and they offer models with bullet vibes for extra stimulation. 
Just ditch the vibes and get something stronger if you want to feel anything!

best lesbian toys

The Fun Factory Share & Sharevibe are some of the most refined looking double dildos you can get.

The G-Spot end of these double dildos are much larger than most other "Strapless" bulbs. 
So if girth is a problem for the wearer, these might not be the best option. 
Otherwise, if intense G-Spot stimulation is her thing, she will feel right at home.

The ShareVibe is less phallic than the Original, and has a pretty decent Vibe included that is rechargeable and submersible under water.

The big caveat is that the bullet vibe is much larger than standard bullet toys. 
So you won't be able to fit the great rumbly Tango inside of your toy if you need an upgrade.

best lesbian toys

Fuze's Tango has a lot in common with the Sharevibe. It has a similar shape and Bullet placement ( no bullet included this time ) but this time the G-Spot Bulb is much smaller, so it is perfect for a wearer who isn't all about that girth.

But most importantly, as opposed to the Sharevibe, it is compatible with regular bullets as well as the amazing Tango Vibe... which probably explains the name of this great double dildo, now that we think about it.

It's also not too rigid and not too soft, so if one of you prefers hard and the other soft, this is the perfect compromise. 
And compromise is at the center of every healthy relationship!

best lesbian toys

Vixen Creation's Nexus Dildos are the squishiest double dildos on this list.

The insertable end meant for the wearer is also slimmer than any other G-Spot Bulbs on this entry.

They come in 3 different sizes the first two being the Unrealistic Junior and Senior. 
The last size, named the Peacemaker, sports a realistic and large 2-inch dildo on the receiving end.
This large realistic option also comes in Caramel, Vanilla, and Chocolate.
So if you guys dig big toys, well, you're welcome.

 

Double-Ended Dildos

There are very little options when it comes to traditional body-safe double-ended dildos.

I'm not quite sure if it is simply because it has been overlooked by modern toy makers or if they're simply not that popular anymore now that we have plenty of "strapless" options to choose from.

Ruse 18 inch Silicone Slim Double Dong by Blush Novelties - Purple

But if you were looking for more traditional double-ended dildos, the Dorcel Double Do ( 16 inches ) and the Ruse by Blush ( 18 inches ) are some of the only body-safe old school options that we're aware of. 

double dildo vac-u-lock connector

Otherwise, the double dildo connector for Vac-U-Lock toys is another great option if you want to customize each other's ends to your liking.
So head to our Vac-U-Lock article if you want to find out about the compatible toys.

nytc suction cup double dildo
Alternatively, you could go with the cheap Double-sided suction cup by NYTC mentioned earlier.
While originally meant to provide suction cups to standard dildos, it works just as well for sticking standard dils to each other.

So it's a great way to convert each other's favorite standard dildos into the perfect double-ended toy!
