It's easy to understand why dildos are one of the most popular sex toys in the world. They boost your confidence and provide immense pleasure; I mean, what more could you ask for in a sex toy? But with so many different designs and materials of dildos to choose from, it can be a bit challenging to know which dildo is your perfect fit. 

So, what are dildos made of? And which one is best for you?

In this article, we detail what dildos are made of and explore the very best materials for dildos. 

Let's get sex-educated!


Things to Consider When Choosing a Dildo

#1 The Material

The material is an essential factor to consider when choosing a dildo, as not all materials are safe to use on your body. Some unsafe materials can lead to irritation, allergic reactions, or even infection. Choose body-safe materials like silicone, glass, stone, wood, or glass. We will get more into detail on the best material for dildos later in this article. 


#2 Porosity 

This is another important factor to consider when it comes to choosing your dildo. Porous dildos have small pores where dirt and germs can build up, making them unsafe for intimate use. It can also make the cleaning process challenging when a dildo is porous. So when choosing a dildo, make sure it is non-porous, easy to clean, and body-safe.

Silicone 

This is one of the most popular materials used for dildos. The material is soft and flexible, making it very comfortable to use. Make sure that your silicone dildos are made of medical-grade silicone. The soft material feels amazing when used against the body. This makes it great to use on your erogenous zones, such as your inner thighs and under your arms. 


The Best Lube to Use

The best lube for silicone dildos is water-based lube, as other lubes may damage the material.

  • Glass dildos are hard, so they may not be for everyone.

Stone

Stone dildos, as the name suggests, are crafted from stone and have a history that stretches back for ages. The oldest stone dildo is thought to hail from the Ice Age and is around 28,000 years old. This highly polished siltstone phallus is 7.8 inches long. 

Granite is the most frequently used material, although marble and other stone varieties are also popular choices.

Stone dildos are smooth and hard and can provide you with intense sensation as well as stimulation. Some stone dildos are porous, so you will need to look for a body-safe, non-porous stone dildo. 


The Best Lube to Use

You can use any lube with a stone dildo, but because it's so hard, you may want to look for a lube that is thick to reduce friction and make it more pleasurable.

Disclaimer

  • Stone dildos are hard, so avoid dropping them on your foot. 
  • Because stone dildos are hard, they may not be for everyone.

Metal Dildos

Metal dildos are, as the name says, made from metal. They are typically made from stainless steel but can also be made from titanium or aluminum. People enjoy the smooth, firm feeling of the metal as it's something different compared to the squishiness and softness of the silicone dildos.


Temperature Play With a Metal Dildo

You can heat up a metal dildo or cool it down, whatever you prefer. Heating up your metal dildo can help your muscles relax and create a new sensation while cooling can numb the area and make things more sensitive.
