Home' LOTL : October 2005 Contents ABOUT DILDOS
A dildo is a solid object that is designed
for either vaginal or anal penetration. The
difference between a dildo and a vibrator
is that a dildo doesn’t vibrate, and it
usually has a flared base so it is easy to
use by hand or to strap into a harness. A
dildo is safe for anal penetration.
Dildos are the oldest known sex toy.
Historically there are records of dildos in
many cultures made from stone, wood,
marble or leather. In modern times
they are made from various materials
including silicone, latex, cyberskin,
acrylic and glass.
Dildos may be sculptured in a variety of
shapes. We recommend silicone dildos in
the main, because they are non-porous,
safe, easy to clean and warm to body
temperature when being used. In the
search for beautiful, practical, funky
designs, we decided to make our own
silicone toys, and D.VICE silicone dildos
have a 10 year guarantee against faults.
Dildos may be used solo or with a
partner. They can be hand-held or
strapped into a harness or held in place
with pelvic floor muscles for a hands-free
WHO WOULD USE A DILDO?
Dildos are used by people of all
sexualities and ages. They are excellent
for self-penetrative pleasure and women
often combine their dildo with a vibrator
for clitoral stimulation. You can use
your harness to strap the dildo to a chair,
bedhead and many other things for ride-
on fun. Dildos are perfect for a woman
to pleasure another woman and great for
people with limited use of their bodies or
for the disabled.
WHY USE A DILDO?
Dildos allow a different experience of
penetration that can be focused on the
receptive person’s pleasure rather than
the penetrator ’s. Strap on play allows
and encourages a variety of positions and
sensations. With dildos and harnesses it
is possible to give oral stimulation to a
woman at the same time as penetrating
her. When you use a dildo you have your
choice of size and shape and dildos allow
you to have double penetration without
introducing another sexual partner.
STRAPPING IT ON
Strapping a dildo on allows for hands
free action. Harnesses are usually made
from leather, webbing or vinyl. Women
can strap on to pleasure another woman
vaginally or anally. Many women find it
very arousing to be the insertive partner.
Use a thigh harness as an alternative to
the traditional front harness. They are
great for prolonged action, excellent for
people with limited use of the lower body,
and encourage you to try positions that
are simply not possible with a traditional
TIPS FOR PENETRATION
Use lubricant! It makes things more
pleasurable by enhancing sensation. It
also means you can have harder and
faster penetration for longer, and lubricant
is essential for safe sex and anal sex.
Make sure the receptive person is fully
aroused before penetration. For anal sex
stimulate the anus externally to relax
Communicate: let your lover know what
feels good to you, and ask questions so
that you can feel confident that you are
doing the right things. Be aware of the
receptive person’s pleasure.
Combine either clitoral or anal
stimulation with penetration – it feels
Practice penetration that is just for the
receptive person's pleasure (a dildo
is great for this). Experiment with a
vibrating ring, this can be slipped on a
dildo to stimulate both partners.
Make penetration a treat for both of you.
Choose positions that are comfortable
for both of you. Out of apparently 600
potential positions for penetration these
5 are the most commonly practiced.
They can apply to either vaginal or anal
- Receptive person on top
- Rear entry or doggie style
- Face to face while sitting or kneeling
- Side by side
Swings and slings can be fantastic for
penetrative sex, as the receptive partner
is suspended and comfortable. Also, the
swinging motion reduces the need for
