Why Use a Dildo?

A Brief History Of Dildos

Dildos are the oldest sex toys known to womankind and have a long, distinguished and global history.

The oldest known dildo was found in Germany. The highly polished stone dildo was 7.5 inch long and over 28,000 years old!

The Kama Sutra, the ancient Indian sex manual, mentions dildos made of gold, silver and buffalo horn.

Dildo's made of leather and wood were worn by actors in classical Greek theatre where they were refereed to as 'oblisbos'.

The ancient Greeks were the first to believe that sexual frustration caused hysteria (literally 'wandering uterus') in women; dildos were thought to be given to women, whose husbands were away at war from long periods, as a cure for hysteria.

The origins of the word "Dildo" are thought to derive from 'dilatare,  Latin for "to open wide" and/or the Italian 'diletto' meaning "delight"!

Why We Don't Carry 'Realistic' Dildos

For such fab playthings, with such a long and noble history, dildos still struggle with a image problem, which swings between the comic and the pornographic.

Most mass-produced dildos are pretty scary representations of the male member in two sizes only; large and extra large.

We don't stock these 'realistic' dildos at Sh! because, quite apart from being ugly and old-school, we know that 'large' and 'XL' most definitely does not fit all!

Our dildos start from as small and slim as a finger because penetrative pleasures should be available to all, whatever your size preferences.
