The primary way to identify a dildo is that, by definition, they do not vibrate. (Dildos are dildos, vibrators are vibrators.)
Many dildos are sex toy versions of erect penises -- sans the sexual vibration feature. Dildos can be found in a huge variety of shapes, colors, and sizes, may be the ideal choice you are looking for a reliable sex toy for vaginal and/or anal penetration. The best-selling dildos are quite possibly realistic versions of a penis, replicating features like the veins and shaft. Typically, a dildo sextoy is used to internally stimulate the vagina and the anus, not used to directly stimulate the clitoris. They can be made from a multitude of materials, such as ABS plastic, TPR (Thermoplastic Rubber), silky soft silicone, UR3 realistic synthetic ‘flesh’, or even glass.
The beauty of a dildo is that no partner is necessary whatsoever. A phallic dildo can be used in lieu of a partner, or in addition to one. Some alternative options include double-dildos, which are exactly as they sound, used for anal and or/vaginal sex between two partners. Additionally, if you are looking for something extreme in shape or design, you can find it! For example, a 3-Foot tall dildo which would make an excellent costume accessory, or even a mini coat rack! An example of a more realistic dildo option would be the John Holmes realistic cock, modeled after the porn star legend. The beauty of the dildo category is that there is truly something for everyone, and that is a beautiful thing!
