The Complete Dildo Buyers Guide

 

Which is the Best Dildo?

For quality, safety and price you can't go past the Tantus O2 range. Two of our favourites are the Adam (16.5cm insertable) and the Luke (14.6cm insertable). They are so incredibly lifelike, and the fact you can choose your size means there's something here for everyone (we cover these in greater detail in the next section). The dual density design means you're getting a firm yet flexible silicone core with a lifelike silicone coating that moves in your hand just like real skin. The core stops at the tip, where the dildo ends with a plump and squishy head. The balls have an incredibly realistic feel and give you a good grip. Tantus uses only the highest quality silicone in all its dildos so you know your purchase is going to last you a long time and be completely bodysafe as well.

Introduction

Before getting further into the dildo buyer's guide, you'll notice that we use the words "dildo" and "dong" interchangeably throughout this guide. There isn't really a difference, they both refer to a device that can be inserted either vaginally or anally (or both) to provide sexual stimulation. But if you want to get technical, a dildo is designed to look and feel like a real penis while a dong will be made from something like glass or metal and is not made to look phallic. Dildos are a way of spicing things up with your partner, showing them how you prefer to be penetrated and then letting them have a turn. You can use a double dildo to double the fun and even buy a vibrating option to turn things up a notch. If you're engaging in solo play, a dildo can be used to replicate a human penis or you can use a double dildo to experience anal and vaginal penetration at the same time. There are endless uses, endless styles and a huge variety of dildos on the market for every individual desire.

Comparison of Top 5

Let's get right into it with a detailed look at the top five highest selling dildos in Australia. You'll see that each has a unique list of features, and some of these features might be more appealing to you than others. There's no right or wrong dildo, you just need to choose what works best for you.

The Realistic Cock Ur3 by Doc Johnson

Doc Johnson has spared no expense in creating a truly lifelike dildo. From the defined veins to the textured balls to the head that has such awesome definition you'll be able to get pinpoint clitoral stimulation. Choose from a 15cm (6") or 20.3cm (8") insertable shaft, with balls that feature a suction cup on the base for hands-free play. The UR3 in the name refers to Doc Johnson's signature realistic finish - a bodysafe elastomer blend. It's free of latex and phthalates (those nasty chemicals used to soften plastics that have been linked to some serious health conditions). It warms to the touch and doesn't have that horrible smell of rubber. The realistic length is not overwhelming and the suction cup means you can put it on any hard surface when you're engaging in solo play. The balls mean there's no risk of penetrating too far, so it's great if you aim to include some anal in your session. Use a water-based lube and clean before and after each use with warm soapy water to extend the life of your toy. The soft feel is slightly bendy, which adds to the lifelike experience.

Colours by New Sensation Novelties

Rest easy knowing your Colours dildo is made of 100% bodysafe silicone, so it can come into contact with your most sensitive areas without causing a reaction. It's hypoallergenic, free of latex and phthalates, non-porous (so it won't become a breeding ground for nasty bacteria) and able to be sterilised in the dishwasher (top rack, no detergent) or with boiling water. Now for the fun part: the Colours range comes in sleek and stylish black or fun and playful hot pink. Choose from a petite 12.7cm (5") or longer 20.3cm (8") model, and enjoy the 5.1cm girth on offer. It's incredibly lifelike, and has a nice weighty feel in the palm of your hand. The high quality silicone has a slight flexibility, and the squeezable balls allow you to get a good, firm grip. The suction-cup base means you can stick it to any hard surface and it warms up the longer you hold it. Being completely waterproof means you can even cool it down in icy water for a thrilling new sensation.

O2 By Tantus

Meet the boys of the Tantus O2 range: Mark (14cm), Luke (14.6cm), Mikey (15.2cm), Adam (16.5cm) and big-boy Max (20cm), Each one comes in a different insertable length, just like in the real world, and you can pick and choose to suit your needs. Tantus has become synonymous with quality thanks to its dual-density finish. Each dildo is made from 100% bodysafe silicone, with a firm core covered in a soft, velvety skin. It's flexible without being squashy, and intricately detailed with veins on the shaft more for aesthetics rather than adding texture. The head is smooth and shiny, while the shaft has a matt finish so there's a lot of lovely sensations to be experienced from just one dildo. The entire range is harness compatible, and perfect for either vaginal penetration or anal play. Mikey is short and stout, while Luke has been designed with an emphasis on complete and utter realism. Adam has a bendy shape that's great for targeting G-spot, while Max is ideal for women who enjoy a lot of length. Tantus' eco-Friendly dildos are completely hypoallergenic, free of latex and plastic softening agents and you can bleach them, boil them or throw them in the dishwasher to clean.

Crystal Jellies Classic 8 Inch Dong by Doc Johnson

This is a Doc Johnson classic, and has been a consistent top-seller over the years with very little changes. Why mess with a winning formula? Made from jelly-like PVC and transformed into an antibacterial device thanks to the addition of Sil-A-Gel, it's got the flexible properties of a real penis. Once inside, it will bend and mold to your curves, giving a perfectly tailored fit every time. Veins criss-cross the entire length of the 13cm insertable shaft, before coming to an end at the smooth and glossy tip. Use it on yourself, let your partner watch or get them to use it on you while you lie back and enjoy the lifelike sensations. For best results you should use a water or silicone-based lube, because the jelly rubber isn't as firm as a silicone dildo so it can be trickier to insert. There is a noticeable smell when you first open the box, but this will fade over time. When you're finished remember to wash with warm soapy water and allow it to air-dry. Choose from three fun feminine colours and relax knowing the Sil-A-Gel material is free of latex and phthalates. Be aware that this is a porous material, which can harbor nasty bacteria if not cleaned properly so we recommend use of a condom if you have sensitive skin.

Real Feel Toyz No.2 by PipeDream

Turn things up a notch with this 20.3cm (8") vibrating dildo. Coming in three lifelike colours, you'll get 13.8 centimetres (5.5") of insertable shaft wrapped around a powerful vibrator. The clever waterproof design means you can even take it in the shower or bath. PipeDream's patented FantaFlesh is made to feel like real skin by incorporating TPR (Thermo-Plastic Rubber). It's porous, so be sure to clean properly before and after each use with warm water and antibacterial soap or simply slip on a condom for full protection if you have sensitive skin. It's free of phthalates, those nasty plastic-softening agents that have been banned in some countries. Pick your speed from the dial located on the base of the dong, grab hold of the balls and slide it into either your pussy or your ass, depending on your mood. The soft, squishy balls add to the lifelike feel and also stop you from penetrating too far and causing discomfort in the middle of a session. The soft finish is incredibly lifelike, with a firm core and the added bonus of powerful vibrations. Don't forget to grab yourself a couple of AA batteries before you start because they don't come included.

Cal Exotics

Before Cal Exotics came on the scene, adult toys were loud, made of cheap materials, marketed purely towards men and available in a choice of two colours - black or white. Susan Colvin changed all that. The former General Manager, and now President, brought a breath of fresh air to the industry with a team led by women who knew what women (and their partners) wanted when it came to dildos. The Colt range was cast using real-life porn stars and celebrities like Carlo Masi and Luke Garrett, and there's everything from gyrating and vibrating dongs to studded, glow in the dark and glitter jelly versions.

The Different Types of Dildos

Now that you're familiar with some of the popular brands and the high-selling devices, it's time to think about the other features you want in a dildo. Are you looking for something that looks like a real penis, something that vibrates or perhaps a dildo shaped like a fist? It's exciting to see how many options are out there, and you might even want to ask your partner what turns them on if you're intending to share the fun.

Silicone dildos

Silicone

Silicone is a great all-rounder because it's not only an affordable option but it's flexible, warms to the touch and is completely hypoallergenic. Silicone dildos are made to last, and because they can be cleaned and disinfected you know they won't harbor any bacterial nasties. Silicone is versatile and can feel incredibly smooth like the Fetish Fantasy Elite Series "Fat dildo" or it can take on realistic qualities, like the New Sensations Colours range. It can be firm or soft, depending on your choice. Just be aware that not all companies use 100% medical grade silicone, and some will use a blend that also incorporates porous materials. So check the details before you buy, especially if you have sensitive skin.

Composite material dildos

Composite Materials

A composite dildo will be made from a blend of materials. A silicone composite only needs to have 10% silicone to be marketed using the word "silicone", so don't be fooled into thinking it will be 100% body safe. Some toys are made with a hard ABS plastic core and a silicone coating, or they might be a blend of TPR (Thermo-Plastic Rubber) and silicone to give a more squishy, flexible feel. If you're unsure about how bodysafe the dildo is, you can always use a condom.

Double dongs

Double Dongs/Dildos

A double dildo, or double dong as it's also called, will have two penis-shaped shafts on one base, instead of the traditional single head. The idea is that it can penetrate two different people simultaneously, so it's great for couples (vagina to vagina, vagina to anal and anal to anal). Check out the Doc Johnson Natural Double Penetrator Vac U Lock to see what we're talking about. The beauty of this style is that it can also be used for solo play, because a woman can use it to penetrate her vagina and anus at the same time. Try it alone or with your partner watching, or you can even choose from a newer style that is commonly known as a double-ended dildo. This features two heads at either end of a bendable shaft. Make sure you talk to your partner before introducing one, and find something that will suit both your needs.

Penis-like dildos

Penis Shaped

If you're looking for a realistic dildo, the world is basically your oyster. Long, stout, thick, thin, bent, textured, smooth, firm, flexible or floppy - you name it and there's a penis-shaped dildo out there to match. It's really just down to your preference. Some will come with testicles, some without. These can help you get a better grip on your dildo, and some are even quite dangly so they slap against you as you get into the swing of things. Many penis-shaped dildos will have a suction-cup base, like the Basix Dong with Suction Cup, so you can stick it to a smooth surface for hands-free play. To add an even more realistic dimension to the fun, you can choose a dildo that is harness compatible, like the Doc Johnson Ballsy Super Cock. This transforms it into a strap-on device for use with a partner. There's even a fun range from Doc Johnson called Super Hung Heroes, which are penis-shaped dildos with a twist. Choose the bright green, heavily veined Incredible Hunk or The Caped Cock, a sleek black dong with an uncut head and a textured bat engraved along the shaft.

Other shaped dildos

Other Shapes (Fists, Hands, Probes, etc)

Whether you've tried fisting before or you are just curious, a dildo shaped like a hand or fist can be a fantastic way to indulge in the experience if you're alone. It can also be a great way to replicate the sensation of your partner's fingers and hands if they are out of town. Fisting is not typically for beginners, and can take some getting used to, so buying a dildo can be a good way to ease into the experience. Famous porn star Belladonna has released a range of dildos in conjunction with Doc Johnson that are molded on her hands. They're incredibly realistic, right down to the skin folds. Her Magic Hand Dildo is angled into a shape reminiscent of a duck bill, with the thumb positioned underneath her outstretched fingers. This is a great place to start if you are trying fisting for the first time, as you can ease the hand in and angle it to fill yourself up in all the right places. Once you are hooked on the sensation, you can look at something like Belladonna's Bitch Fist, which is quite a large dildo designed to stretch and fill your internal walls. Remember to buy a good quality lube before use.

Things to Consider When Buying a Dildo

Now that you have created a wish list for your ideal dildo, it's time to start thinking about the practical stuff. Sure, it's not as fun as choosing a shape or a colour, but it's extremely important to take these other features into consideration. A dildo is designed to be used internally, and therefore the type of material you choose matters. The price of your product is also important, as you might not want to spend a lot of money but you need to be aware that this generally means you're getting a less durable dildo that might need replacing sooner. Take a look at these considerations to help you decide which dildo is right for you.

Materials/Compounds

There's no two ways about it - a dildo is designed to rub up against your most sensitive areas. Whether it's your vagina or anus, these parts of the body are notoriously delicate and will absorb harmful chemicals, so the material you choose is extremely important.

  • Silicone - If a company says their dildo is made from 100% medical grade silicone then you know you're getting a good quality product. Keep in mind that a dildo only needs to include 10% of a material for it to be marketed as that material, so if something is a "silicone blend" it might only have the minimal amount of silicone in it and the rest could be something porous like rubber. If you're buying a 100% silicone dildo it will be hypoallergenic, latex free, free of phthalates (a controversial plastic softening chemical that has been linked to serious health issues and even banned in some countries) and non-porous (bacteria won't get trapped in the pores). It will be odourless and easy to clean with soapy water, and you can bleach it, boil it or sterilise it in hot water (or the top rack of your dishwasher). Silicone is also very versatile, and can be made to have a firm finish or a soft lifelike feel. You'll generally pay more, but we feel it's worth the money as silicone dildos are built to last. Tantus dildos are an eco-friendly company that only uses the highest quality silicone so you can't go wrong with a Tantus.
  • Composites - As we mentioned above, some dildos will be made from a few different materials combined. A silicone blend might only have 10% silicone and the rest could be TPR or TPE. It might also have an ABS plastic core with a silicone skin coating for a realistic feel.
  • Rubber - Rubber is cheap, flexible and can be dyed in a rainbow of fun colours. It can be firm or hard and is usually translucent. Rubber dildos will often have quite a strong smell, which can be off-putting for some people, but it will generally fade over time. The material in rubber dildos can be given a lot of different names - elastomer, PVC, cyberskin, softskin or jelly are the common ones. Some will be free of latex and phthalates, which is a good thing. If you're at all concerned, just slip a condom on before use. Jelly rubber is a porous material, meaning dirt and bacteria can get trapped in the surface pores. You can't sterilise rubber so if you're planning to share a rubber dildo remember to use a condom.
  • TPE - TPE will generally be more expensive than rubber, and is free of latex and phthalates so it's a lot more bodysafe as well. TPE dildos are good quality and we do stand by them. It stands for Thermo-Plastic Elastomer and it's a good flexible material.
Compounds used in dildos
Types of dildos

Type of Use

The way you use your dildo is up to you. You might enjoy the feeling of fullness you get from inserting it into your vagina or you might want something you can use anally as well. Perhaps you'd like to use it on your partner, or get them to use it on you. It's important to always talk with your partner beforehand, and make sure you get something that's right for both of you. If you're going to be sharing the dildo, it's wise to use a condom - especially if your dildo is made from a porous jelly rubber that can't be sterilised. Always wash your dildo thoroughly before and after each use, following the manufacturer's instructions carefully. If you're planning to use a dildo for anal play, remember that no object is too long to get trapped in there. If you push something too far, your sphincter will close up and it can become very painful (and sometimes expensive!) to have it removed. Choosing a dildo with balls is a good way to stop it from going too far. If you're after something that will hit your G-spot, look for a curved dildo and perhaps one that vibrates as well.

Hypoallergenic & Sensitive Skin

Don't take any risks when it comes to the most sensitive areas of your body. If you're prone to allergies, have ever had a reaction to latex or you have experienced a burning sensation when using a particular type of dildo then it's best to either use a condom or stick to 100% medical grade silicone. We know it's expensive, which means some people simply won't be able to afford it. But in our honest opinion, it's the best choice you can make for your body. Silicone is free of latex and phthalates and it's non-porous. You can sterilise it, bleach it, boil it and use it over and over. If you have sensitive skin there's just no point risking it with a cheap jelly rubber product. You should be able to enjoy your toy without worrying about breaking out in a rash or experiencing discomfort. A condom is a great way to keep things sterile and clean if you're on a budget, just remember to change it if you're moving from the vagina to the anus.

Sensitive skin consider hypoallergenic
Sizes of dildos

Size & Shape

The size of your dildo is important. If it's too big you'll be too nervous to relax and enjoy it, and if it's too small you won't get that sought-after "full" feeling that dildos are famous for. Most dildos are measure by their girth, and if you're not sure what girth gets you going then it's a good idea to have a little experiment. Pop into the kitchen and grab a zucchini or a cucumber, and play around with different sizes. You can shave bits off the side until you find your preferred width then measure it up and away you go! When it comes to dildos, bigger isn't always better. So if you're buying it for a partner it might not always be a pleasant surprise if you haven't consulted them first. If it's too big it can hit a woman's cervix and cause pain, or men and women can even experience anal tearing. Don't get confused between the terms "diameter" and "circumference" when reading the measurements of your dong. Diameter is measured from one side of a circle to the other, the circumference is the measurement all around the outside.

If it has a flared base or balls then you'll need to pay attention to the insertable length, rather than the overall length. If you buy a dildo and it's too thin, you can easily buy a penis sleeve to bulk it up. If it's too long why not add a cock ring to the base to shorten it? Unfortunately, if it's too big there's not much you can do, which is why measuring yourself or your partner is so crucial. Something like the Tantus Silk Purple Haze is great for beginners. It doesn't look like a penis, but it has all the benefits. It's smooth, sleek and simple to use so you can get used to the sensation before working your way up to something realistic, like the NS Novelties Colours range. A more experienced user may want something large, like the Doc Johnson Big Boy 12".

Trusted Brands

We don't mess around when it comes to stocking the best dildos available. These products are designed for use internally, and we don't believe it stocking dildos that could cause you damage due to cheap, nasty materials. If you spend a bit more money, you know you're getting a quality dildo that will last a while. The worst thing is buying a cheap dildo that tears or breaks after a few uses and having to go back and research something new. If you want the best, we recommend choosing brands like Doc Johnson, Tantus, PipeDream, Cal Exotics or NS Novelties. This is just a start, and we stock many other trusted brands on our site. If you've got any questions just ask, it's what we are here for.

Should you choose a trusted or known brand?

Vibrating vs Non-Vibrating

If you love the sensation of having your clitoris stimulated, and it's the main way you reach orgasm then it's advisable to stick to a vibrator. The main function of a dildo is not to stimulate, but to be inserted into either the vagina or anus for a "full" feeling. However, you can use a little bullet vibrator at the same time as your dildo, so that you're getting both penetration and clitoral stimulation. If you love the idea of a dildo combined with a little extra stimulation then you can buy one that comes with a built-in vibrator. Doc Johnson's Great American Challenge has two powerful motors that vibrate along the entire shaft (but it's also 15" so beginners need not apply!). The Naturals Vibrating Double Penetrator is a realistic looking and feeling double dong that has a dial at the base for controlling the vibrations. The Fetish Fantasy Elite Vibrating dildo even has a suction-cup base so you can stick it down and mount it for hands-free fun.

Balls vs No-Balls

Balls or no balls. That is the question. And the great thing is, it's totally up to you. Traditionally, dildos would simply be one long shaft with no balls on the end. But as time went by, the style and shape of some dildos evolved to include a set of realistic looking balls. If you're planning to use your dildo for anal play, balls are a natural way to stop you from inserting it too far. The balls will generally be flat on the bottom and give the dildo a wider base so that you can strap it into a harness. If it's got a suction-cup base then you'll be able to put it on a flat surface, like a bath or the wall of your shower (if it's waterproof) and experiment with different positions. This can be great if you like to try and stimulate your G-spot with a dildo. Some of the balls are quite squishy and textured, others are dangly so that they slap against your during play. They're handy for giving you a better grip on your dildo. However, some people find them off-putting or not necessary and prefer to stick with a simple wand. This is often more discrete, and easier for storage.

Balls vs no-balls Dildos
price is often an important consideration

Price

Like anything in life, you get what you pay for. The cheaper the dildo then the more likely it is to break, or be made from a harmful material. If you're just starting out then you might not want to spend a lot of money, which is totally understandable. But it doesn't mean you need to settle for something that's poor quality. Something like the Basix Dong Classic or the Doc Johnson Crystal Jellies range will not set you back a small fortune, but still provide everything you want from a dildo. Once you're used to the sensations, you might want to splash out on something made from a more realistic feeling silicone or cyberskin material. Doc Johnson's Realistic Cock UR3 or Giant Jumbo Jack are good examples. Often you'll find that dildos molded on celebrities and porn stars will set you back a bit as well, such as the Shane Diesel: Big, Black and Realistic model. A higher priced dildo will last longer, so you won't need to replace it as often. This is better in the long run, and you'll most likely be getting a more bodysafe material.

Summary

Now that you're familiar with the sorts of dildos out there (and there are a lot to choose from!) it's time to go shopping. This can be a lot of fun, but remember the information you've read in this guide. Stick to bodysafe materials like silicone and elastomer, and make sure you've got an idea of the size that suits your body. Be prepared to pay a bit more for something that looks realistic, or start out with something fun and cheap to get used to the new sensation of penetrating yourself (or being penetrated with) a dildo. The most important thing is to have fun. Get in touch with our friendly sales staff if you've got any questions.
