Different Types of Dildos

People often get confused about the difference between a dildo and a vibrator. At Sh! we distinguish simply;  Any toy with the primary purpose of penetration, we call a ‘dildo’. It can sometimes vibrate, but internal pleasure, rather than vibrating thrills is its main job spec.

Stroked in and out, a perfectly shaped and sized dildo will stimulate the sensitive nerve endings that surround the vaginal and anal entrances and further inside there’s the G-Spot  and Prostate to explore. These female and males ‘sweet spots’ offer orgasmic potential that is quite different to clitoral and penile orgasms.

But with so many different types of dildos,  which is right type for you?

Silicone Dildos

Sh! dildos are hand-poured in super safe silicone and come in a range of over 30 fifferent sizes, meaning there's a perfect dildo, whatever your preference!
Sh! dildos are hand-poured in super safe silicone and come in a range of over 40  different sizes, meaning there’s a perfect dildo, whatever your preference!

Whether for solo or partner-play, Sh! Silicone dildos are the best, most versatile dildo you can buy.

Yes, we admit we’re biased! But our artisan range, which is  hand-poured in our London studio, using pure silicone means there’s a bespoke, ethically-made dildo for everyone…

 

Body-safe, sensual and very easy to clean, they can be held in your hand or worn in a strap on harness.

Their wide bases also makes them totally safe to use as dildos for anal play.

Buying a dildo is a very personal choice, of course.  ‘One size’ most definitely does NOT fit all and that’s why we make almost 40 different sizes of silicone dildos from petite upwards.

Only you can know if you, or your lover would prefer a short dildo, or a long dildo, a  slim dildo, or a wide dildo, but we can give you the following dildo buying advice:

 

What Size Dildo?

  • Width is the most important measurement to get right, as a dildo that’s just too ‘girthy’ will not please.
  • Length is less important, as you can always control how far to put it inside.
  • If you plan to wear your dildo in a harness, however, you should opt for a longer one than you may think as a couple of usable inches are lost when a dildo is ‘strapped on’

If this is you are a first-time buyer, read up on how to choose your first dildo.

 

 


 

Dildos For Two

Double Ended Dildos
Double-ended dildos are extra-long, with a dildo at each end for each partner to enjoy…

Double dildos  come in two types: traditional and strapless.

Traditional double-ended dildos are extra-long dildos designed to use with a partner.

There’s a shaft at each end for each of you to enjoy, either vaginally or anally.

You move the double dildo between yourselves using a pull me/push me motion.

A double dildo offers simultaneous voyeuristic and physical pleasures as you both get to see AND experience penetration together.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Strapless dildos are designed for strap-on style sex without a harness
Strapless dildos are designed for strap-on style sex without a harness

Strapless dildos  are designed for strap on-style sex with a partner, without the need of a harness.

A U-shaped double dildo, featuring one internal (egg-shaped) and one external (longer) dildo.

The “operator” grips the internal dildo inside her (using her PC Muscles) whilst she penetrates her lover with the external dildo.

A strapless dildo is best for subtle moves, rather than wild thrusting, as it doesn’t offer the same security of a dildo worn in a harness.

 


 

Dildos To Strap-On

 

Starts Manufacturing Artisan, Hand-Made Silicone Dildos & Strap-Ons

A dildo worn with a harness offers more security & adaptability than a strapless; the harness holds the dildo securely to your body, meaning you can move more freely.

The other advantage is that you can interchange the dildo, up or down-sizing as the fancy (and your dildo collection) takes you…

One partner wears a dildo ‘strapped-on’ , either onto their hips, with a regular Strap-On  Harness or onto their leg, using a Thigh Harness.

The dildo is then ready to offer her partner penetrative pleasure, either vaginally or anally.

A Strap-On is a classic lesbian sex toy,  but it’s becoming increasingly popular with straight couples who are discovering the delights and orgasmic potential of pegging.

Dildos worn in a harness must have a flared/wide base to prevent them slipping out of the harness.

A flared base on a dildo is also crucial for safe anal play.

All Sh! silicone dildos are harness compatible and anal safe.


 

Dildos For Sensation

Glass G-Spot Dildo £37
Hard dildos, made of glass or steel offer amazing sensations that the G-Spot & Prostate particularly enjoy…

Dildos made from glass or metal offer a delicious weightiness that other dildos can’t…

It’s a weight and firmness that the G-Spot & Prostate respond to really well.

These dildos also feel super sleek and sensual. With just a touch of lube, they simply glide inside with unbelievable ease…

They can also be gently warmed, or chilled, to offer different temperature sensations.

Glass and metal dildos offer unique penetrative pleasure which is very different to a regular dildo and most of our customers who try them, rave about the exquisite sensations they deliver.

Designed to be hand-held, they cannot be worn as strap-on.

 

 

So that’s our run down on the main different types of dildos, but we have loads more advice about choosing and using a dildo

Q&A

Q&A: Man Using a Strap-On for Double Penetration?

Hi,

I’m looking for a harness that’s ok for men to wear to give their partner double penetration

i.e. there’s a space for a man’s penis and space for a dildo as well.

Also my partner would like to use a harness for either single penetration or double penetration on another woman.

Any ideas?

Two Strap Harness
Two Strap Harness £42

Hi there,
Our Double Strap Harness can be worn by men, to strap-on a dildo – the whether the dildo is to be used instead of their penis or in addition to it for double penetration.

Just position it above your penis on your lower stomach, slip in a dildo and you’re ready to go.

The dildo will penetrate vaginally and your manhood, anally.

To achieve double penetration wearing a strap-on you’ll need good co-ordination.

You’ll also need good communication, as well as a great connection (both physically & mentally) with your girlfriend and this is as important as getting yourself tooled-up.

All our Strap On Harnesses are designed for women to strap-on a Dildo, either for women’s or men’s pleasure (- or both!).

If the woman who is wearing the harness desires some penetration herself, the Double Strap Harness takes a Dual Tool, a special cuff that slips onto the leg straps of the harness to hold a dildo or a butt plug in place.

We haven’t yet designed a harness for a woman to doubly-penetrate her female lover (ie for 2 external dildos) but if there’s enough of a demand we’re sure the Sh! Workshop designers would be happy to rise to the challenge – so people please, let us know your thoughts.

Strap On Dildos Made Easy

We don’t rate standard sex-industry strap-on dildos, the kind where the dildo is permanently fixed to a harness. We’ve tried elastic strap-ons and suffered dildo twang-back on par with a playground bra-strap snap, only on more sensitive bits. We’ve laughed at monster orange dongs waving around in front of us darth vader-style. We’ve spent time working with an old toothbrush, attempting  to clean the join where dildo is attached to harness. And we’ve been left frustrated by the size-choice of these universally large (6″+) strap-ons:  the standard sex-industry still believes biggest is best.

We don’t rate all-in-one strap-on’s and because we can’t recommend them, we won’t sell them…

However, we have been making and selling our two-part strap-on’s for enough years to know that the trickiest part can be picking your first one. So, we’ve created a new range of Strap On Dildo kits to make it a bit easier.

The full range of Sh! silicone dildos can be overwhelming at first  – there’s a size and shape for all tastes and all sexual pursuits, but determining exactly what you want or which one you will enjoy can be tricky until you’ve tried at least one. Then you have to match it to a strap-on harness, decide on lube…  When all you really want to do is get down to business!

Our kits allow you to pick a perfect strap-on dildo with the minimum of stress.

We’ve combined years of experience and feedback from our customers along with a discount on buying the toys separately, to make a perfect plaything for you and your pocket.

So, if you want to try out a strap-on dildo for the first time, or if you want to buy a complete strap-on set that suits you perfectly, or give one as a gift, we have the perfect solution!

Here’s our Top 5 Strap-On Kit Picks:

Pegging: The Erotic Discovery for Straight Couples

Pegging is mighty popular!

Traditionally viewed as lesbian sex toys, nowadays over 40% of strap-on dildos that we manufacture at Sh! are bought by female/male couples.

The ProstateThe turnaround came in the noughties when men finally lost their hang-ups and discovered the pleasures of the male G-Spotaka he prostate gland.

‘Pegging’ as a term, was born from a sex advice column competition in 2001 to name the act with no name.

Back then, male sexuality was at least prescriptive as female sexuality, if not more so – men had to be the “do-ers” – the ones on top. God help a man if he enjoyed anything more than the missionary position after a few pints and a curry on a Friday night!

And if he enjoyed something up his bum, he had to start questioning his sexuality as “real men” didn’t!

For us the first whiff of change came when FHM journalist Grub Smith (and girlfriend) came to Sh!, as the manufacturer of the finest strap-ons in the land.

Best Pegging Dildo Set
Best Pegging Dildo Set £78

His girlfriend needed to be kitted out with a strap on for a blow-by-blow article he was writing about loosing his anal cherry.

We’re hazy on dates, but it was probably late 90’s, the height of the lads-mags reign.

We were expecting a “Yeah Mate. Tried it. Didn’t like it” article, but what Grub gave the world, and all the lads in it, was a pretty sensitive piece, with all his anxiety – and pleasure – faithfully recorded.

Grub’s article also smashed the widely held view that when a woman pleasures her man this way, there must be role-reversal or submission/domination involved.

Sure, some women do like to get all mistress-like when pegging, and some men enjoying playing the opposite role.

But our experience of selling 1,000 of strap-ons as a straight couples sex toy, tells us that most are simply exploring the sensual pleasures of pegging, not role-play.

Whether a toy for a lesbian sex or straight sex, if you are going to wear a dildo in a harness, as a strap-on, we always advise opting for a slightly longer dildo than you may initially think.

This extra length is essential on the out-stroke to prevent the dildo slipping out of her lover altogether.

The other pegging essential is lube. Never scrimp on your personal lubricant during any kind of anal sex as it’s vital to keeping your moves smooth and anal sex sensual and pain free.
