So, in this article, we’re going to tell you how you can properly use your dildo for the first time, as well as tell you how to each different kind of dildo out there, and, of course, tell you about the best dildo on the market!

How To Use A Dildo For The First Time

Using a dildo for the first time may seem a little daunting, even if you’ve masturbated or used other toys in the past. However, there really is no need to panic, you’re going to have a great time, just make sure to follow our tips!

Set Aside Time To Use Your Dildo

Obviously, the first thing you need to do is set aside some time to use your dildo! Although you may want a quickie with your dildo in the future, the first time you use it, you’ll want to take some time to get to know it, enjoy it, and see what really works for you.

We’d recommend setting aside 1-2 hours to enjoy your dildo - turn down the lights, light some candles, get on a spicy playlist on and have a long, pleasurable few hours.

Relax and Don’t Put Too Much Pressure On Yourself

Don’t be overwhelmed by your dildo and don’t put too much pressure on yourself to have the best climax ever or really enjoy using your toy. Breathe, relax, try to enjoy your time, and don’t set any expectations. You’re much more likely to derive pleasure from a sexual experience if you’re fully relaxed, so try not to think of it as a big deal and think of it as simply exploring your sexuality!

Start Small

Unless you’re absolutely certain that you want to enjoy a larger dildo, the best thing you can do is start small - a 7-inch dildo with average girth is the perfect size to start with, and if that’s too much for you, just remember, you don’t have to use the entire length of the toy! If over time you realize that you’d prefer a bigger size or girth, you can always size up!

Use Lube

Lube is a super useful and incredibly beneficial tool to utilize in sexual experiences, especially when it comes to using toys! Lube reduces the likelihood of pain, injury, and dryness, and aids penetration. So, lube up!

If you’re not sure which lube to use with your dildo, check out our article “Best Lube For Sex Toys”.

Make Sure You Are Properly Aroused Before Insertion

Unlike vibrators, you can’t use dildos before you’re fully aroused. Well, you could, but the outcome isn’t going to be a good one! In order to safely use a dildo, you need to make sure you’re properly aroused before insertion so that penetration is seamless and pleasurable rather than forced or painful.

Clean Your Toy Afterwards

Once you’ve enjoyed your dildo, it’s time to wash it - this applies to every time you use your toy, not just the first time you use it! Yes, that’s right, sex toys need to be washed every time after use. However, the way that you should clean toys depends on their materials.

For a fully waterproof silicone dildo, you can take a mild antibacterial soap, fully submerge the toy, and wash. However, if you’re unsure how to clean your specific toy, take a look at our article on cleaning toys!

Important tip: you need to make sure that you set your toys out to air dry and ensure they are fully dry before putting them away, because not doing so could lead to bacterial growth.

How Do You Use A Dildo? The Different Types of Dildos and How To Use Them!

Now we’ve told you how to make your first time with a dildo a pleasurable, relaxing, and safe experience, it’s time for us to tell you how to use different types of dildos - there’s a real variety out there!

How To Use A Suction Dildo

Suction dildos are, as the name suggests, dildos that have suction cups on the bottom of them so you can attach them to the floor, wall, or furniture. These types of dildos are also great for use in the shower or bath due to their suction element.

All you need to do to use a suction cup successfully is stick it to a suitable surface, either vertically or horizontally - if you are going to be using it horizontally, you will want to check that the suction cup is properly stuck to the surface before you use it.

How To Use A Double-Ended Dildo

Double-ended dildos allow two people to be penetrated with the same toy at the same time, or can be used by one person to penetrate both the vagina and the anus at the same time!

To use a double-ended dildo with a partner, you can both sit with your legs straddled, put the dildo between you, and insert it into either the vagina or anus! Then, you can both thrust as wanted!

If you’re using a double-ended dildo alone for double penetration and you have a vagina, you will want to put one end of the dildo into your anusjo and bend the other end of the dildo so it can be put into your vagina.

How To Use A Strap-On Dildo

Strap-on dildos are two-part toys that have a dildo attached to a harness. These dildos are normally worn by one person that then penetrates someone else, but they can also be used alone if attached to an object such as a pillow or a chair.

If someone is wearing a strap-on, they simply need to get into the harness and then attach the dildo to the front of the harness. They can then penetrate their partner or partners with the dildo as if it was their own penis.

If you’re using a strap-on dildo, you can attach the harness to a pillow (pillows are great to attach strap-ons to!), add the dildo, and then get on top!

How To Use A Squirting Dildo

Squirting dildos look like standard dildos, but they have a reservoir inside them that allows them to squirt fake semen from. These types of dildos are typically used alone by people that take pleasure in ejaculation.

To use a squirting dildo, you will need to make the fake semen, which is typically provided inside the product package of a squirting dildo. Once the mixture is made, you simply need to insert the semen into the toy’s reservoir/tubes. When you want the dildo to ejaculate, you will need to push a button/squeeze the pump on the dildo, and it will happen!

How To Use An Inflatable Dildo

Inflatable dildos are a type of dildo that you pump up to inflate the size of it. This can be used by those that like to feel as if they are “full”, as well as those that like wide girth.

To use an inflatable dildo, you need to put the dildo inside you (whether in the vagina or anus), and then start using the hand pump to inflate the toy. Most dildos don’t actually take too long to inflate, so take it easy.

How To Use A Dildo For Anal Penetration

All dildos can be used for anal penetration, so you don’t need to look for a specific type of toy if you’re wanting to use a dildo for this type of penetration. However, we can’t stress enough how important two things are when it comes to using a dildo for anal penetration…

Make Sure It Has A Base

Although you can use any dildo for anal penetration, it’s important that you don’t get the dildo stuck in your anal cavity. Unlike the vagina which will expel toys at a certain point, things can get stuck/lost in the anal cavity. So, either make sure you choose a dildo with a thick base (such as a suction cup dildo) or take great care when enjoying anal penetration with a standard dildo.

Use More Lube

Lube may be useful for vaginal penetration, but it’s absolutely essential for anal penetration. If you don’t use lube, you can easily tear the tissue inside the rectum, which can easily get infected and cause pain. So, when using a dildo for anal penetration, make sure that you use a lot of lube! We recommend Foria Intimacy Sex Oil with CBD since it's all natural & organic, & because the CBD in the oil helps soothe any pain caused from vaginal and anal penetration.
