Dildo Buying Guide

With all the easily accessible resources online for sex toys, such as She Bop and Vibrations Direct, as well as the amount of options, it can be really overwhelming to decide what dildo to buy, especially if it’s your first time buying. In an effort to make this experience less daunting and potentially disappointing, we’ve put together a short guide.

First of all, I would encourage you to try to keep an open mind and be patient with your body. You may not really know what kind of stimulation you want. That’s okay! And if you buy something that doesn’t immediately knock your socks off, that’s okay, too. Often new toys take some getting used to, some experimentation.


You know the saying, “you get what you pay for”? That’s definitely true of most sex toys. Be prepared to spend at least $40, give or take a few bucks. Depending on your budget, this may seem like a lot to spend on stiff object to stick in your holes, but it’s totally worth it to get a good quality sex toy that you won’t need to turn around and replace in a few months. Also, these toys tend to be made of materials that you can sterilize, making them versatile and safe for continued use. There are exceptions, of course, but approach with some skepticism.


Visual attractiveness is not always indicative of a product you’ll love — the Hitachi Magic Wand and the Eroscillator come to mind — but it helps if you find your soon-to-be sex toy appealing. Look over your options and try to pin down what you immediately find attractive. Do you find yourself turned on by the realistic, flesh-toned dildos? Do you prefer the dildos that look more geometric and colorful? Or perhaps some version in between? Does a certain texture look sensationally interesting? I wouldn’t pick a dildo on aesthetic alone, but it certainly helps to be aware of what you find attractive.

Size / Shape

Just as preferences for style vary, so do preferences for size or shape. Some dildos are long yet slender, others are short and wide. There are many variations. It’s probably not wise to select a particularly large or wide dildo if this is your first one, just because you may find yourself unable to use the dildo pleasurably. However, depending on your sexual experience, you may know that you prefer smaller or larger than “average” sizes.


It’s really important to consider what functions you want this dildo to serve. Do you want it to vibrate? If so, obviously you’ll want a dildo that vibrates. Do you want it to be able to stimulate your g-spot or prostate? If so, then you want to look for a curved dildo with a bulbous tip. If you want to be able to use the dildo anally, without a condom, or possibly share it with partners, then you should buy one that is made of 100% silicone*, glass, or aluminum. These materials can be boiled in between uses to sterilize the dildo. Also, in the case of anal insertion, please look for a dildo with a wide base, such as the Tantus Curve. (You wouldn’t want to lose anything in there!)

There you have it. The basics. I hope this little guide helps you decide on which dildo to buy. Remember to keep an open mind, trust your own desires, and read product descriptions thoroughly for dimensions and material information. Happy hunting!

*Silicone toys need to be used exclusively with water-based lubricants. Silicone lubricants will destroy silicone toys.

G Curve Dildo

Undressed REviews G Curve

G Curve Dildo by Tantus provided for review by Babeland

We received the G Curve months ago, after I saw several other reviews for it and thought it looked promising, despite the fact that I typically prefer dildoes made of hard materials. A few immediate things going for it:

1. It’s made of silicone.
2. It’s a dildo curved for g-spot stimulation.
3. It has a wide base so it could be used anally or in a strap-on.
4. It’s a wonderful shade of purple.

Still, it took us awhile to start using it. When a dildo of some kind was needed, I went for my spaceship. The first time we used it, I was not particularly impressed with it. It stayed in the drawer longer, unused. Finally, as the necessity for a review approached, we started using it more and it has grown on me as I’ve learned more about it.

As with most sex toys, the G Curve offers a particular sensation. The g-spot stimulation I experience with the G Curve is not pointed and intense, as it would be with a finger or a slender, bulbous ended toy, but rather a general (well-directed) pressure. The G Curve offers a sensation of unstrained fullness, and when my body is mid-orgasm, clenching around this smooth silicone toy, I definitely feel like there is something there to grasp.

Aesthetically speaking, the toy is really attractively designed. The dark, metallic purple silicone makes this one of the more sensual-looking dildos I’ve ever seen.

Unfortunately, I have not tried this toy in a strap-on. We are not quite there yet. When we are ready to review this product in that capacity, we’ll happily expand this review.


This thing is freaking pretty. As Mimi said, it is a sensual shade of purple but what she didn’t tell you (and the pictures may not portray) is that is has elegant marbling throughout it as well.

It measures in at 5.5″ x 1.5″ and is rather easy to use on Mimi as well because of the large base and the soft yet sturdy silicone construction. Of course, as with all silicone products, clean up is as easy as makin pasta, though I don’t recommend throwing it at the wall to see if it is done.

Vixen Maverick Dildo provided by Sugar’s Lip Service

Vixen’s Maverick Dildo is 2×7 aka My Favorite Cock

Being a porn performer definitely has its advantages. Like when Undressed Reviews sent me an email asking if I’d like to write a guest review and I told them I’d find time to do it if they could get me one of the toys at the top of my wish list, the Maverick VixSkin Dildo. In Caramel. And then they did — thanks guys!

But before I begin my review, I have a confession… see, I’ve already experienced the Maverick so I knew what I was “in” for. I had experienced a lover who wore Vixen Creations’ firmer silicone version in a hot solid black. It felt amazing inside. I knew then that this shape was good. Recently in the film “Billy Castro does the Mission”, I got topped like a champ by new FTM porn sensation Billy and his cock, the VixSkin Maverick Dildo. And it was good. Very good. From that moment on it was at the top of my list.

Cocks are to be given, taken, and to be owned.

My Maverick is thick, long, and feels both chewy and sturdy all at once. 7″ long and 2″ wide, it is realistic but without balls. A note about balls: there are two camps for strap-on cock lovers — those who like balls and those who don’t. Personally, I’m impartial to either design. A good dick this large without balls is not too common so this is a distinguishing quality for those in the sans testies camp. The flared base is nice and the shaft is wide so check if your harness may require a larger O-ring. Structurally, Maverick has a nice big head and prominent ridge which I like to think looks like it could be modeled after retracted foreskin — works for me! The proud curve of Maverick is fantastic for G-spot (aka Prostata Femalia) stimulation. Being pounded by this cock when it is strapped by a lover can make me ejaculate.

Coming with the Maverick is the hottest thing. I love feeling wetness gush under me when my legs are bent up high and wide. It’s the hottest thing, when riding on top a lover and feeling my liquid cum release over their hips, thighs and belly. And as a solo toy, Maverick is well-suited for grabbing hold of the flat base and pumping the thickness deep inside while letting fantasies spill over. I also like to jerk it off while wearing it strapped; the realistic look and feel of the cock is perfectly packed for masturbation.

Reviews include technical specifics, right? Here’s a little about the material, since this is the reason the Maverick is not a cheap toy — and also the reason why it is worth the price. Silicone toys are hand-poured into molds and individually crafted. Every single base is trimmed with fine scissors to remove excess silicone. The Maverick is part of Vixen’s very own silicone dildo design called VixSkin, which has dual density layers, meaning the dildo has a flexible firm core with a softer smooth outer layer. They are non-porous which makes them a piece of cake to clean (I clean by boiling it for 3-5 minutes), and also safer to share. If well-treated, the dildo will last a lifetime. For lube I recommend a water-based lubricant such as those made by Sliquid Organics.

What else? Ah yes, silicone can be made in almost any color; the Maverick is available in three flesh tones called “vanilla”, “caramel” and “chocolate”. Another great thing about silicone cocks is that the material transfers vibration pretty well, so a vibe held to the dildos or a vibrating cock ring or two positioned on the base of the shaft will add sensation. Silicone warms up to body temperature quickly, which can make fucking more comfortable. And many people will need to also warm up their hole(s) considerably before settling into the toy. For size queens, it is a welcomed addition to the toy chest as it’s rare to find a high quality silicone toy that is this size.

Vixen Creations creates some of the best big toys of this diameter — one of them is the Outlaw which I love though it can be too long for some, making the Maverick my new favorite cock!

Thank you Undressed Reviews for the guest review, and for buckets and buckets of pleasure.
