What Makes A Great Dildo?

Just about every type of dildo out there is designed for a specific purpose. While dildos are generally made to provide penetrating pleasure, the way in which they do that varies. Dildos have different shapes, are made of different materials, and vary in size to provide specific stimulating sensations.

There are many different types of dildos so make sure that you read reviews and testimonials from others so you know what you’re getting yourself into. For hygienic reasons, you often won’t be able to return the dildo once you buy it, so be sure to do your research before purchasing. We recommend checking the length and size of a dildo as a basic precaution before buying. It’s also a good idea to check to see what material the dildo is made of and if you had any particular irritations with that material in the past.

We support the need for all dildos but Velvet specializes in something special, thrusting dildos.   In the 80s, 90s, 00s these were sex machines..big bulky and scary looking.  Sex tech these days has given way to powerful little batteries that have the same power punch as when you used to have to plug it in....enter the category of our speciality - Thrusting sex toys.

The 8 Different Types of Dildos

Now for some basics.  Each of the following dildos have their pros and cons and specific ways they can be used to maximize pleasure. If you are new to trying a certain type of dildo like an anal dildo or giant dildo, make sure you are aware of your comfort zone and start off slowly.

  • G-Spot Dildos

Curved dildos are designed specifically to hit the g-spot. These dildos combine a realistic feel of a curved penis shaft with the right angle to rub the g-spot. It also works well as a strap on to help stimulate your partner just right.
  • Glass Dildos

Glass dildos offer a different type of style that delivers a gliding feeling with a heavy weight to them. If you’re looking for extra stimulation, these dildos can also be warmed up or cooled. They are considered among the easiest materials to clean.
    •  Vibrating Dildos
    These types of dildos combine the benefits of vibrators. They are great for anyone looking for additional stimulation, and who enjoy a more realistic sensation. You can always switch off the motor to use the dildo by itself. The Velvet Thruster collection features dildos that not only vibrate, but also thrust 2.5 - 3 inches.
    • Anal Dildos

    These dildos are often similar to a regular dildo, but with smaller girth. They are designed for anal and prostate stimulation. If you plan on using this for both anal and vaginal penetration, make sure to clean it thoroghly between use.
    • Double Dildos

    These come in two different types of dildos styles: the double-headed dildo that has a shaft with a penis head on each end, and the double penetration dildo which is a U shaped type of dildo designed for double penetration. The double-headed dildo is longer for deep penetration and can be used by two partners at once. The double penetration dildo is typically molded so that it is easier to penetrate the vagina and anus at the same time.
    • Clone Dildos

    Clone dildos are molded to match the shape of a particular person’s penis. They’re made to be as life-like as possible. These are great for couples who are in long-distance relationships. There are several kits on the market today, making it easy for any couple to make one. You can even choose a dildo modeled after the penises of real adult film stars, to feel what it would be like to have your favorite performer inside of you.
    • Giant Dildos

    You can buy a large penis replica in any size you can handle - 10, 14, 18 inches, or more. The wide girth (up to 2 or 3 inches) may fill you up in a way that other types of dildo styles can’t!. We recommend working your way up to the extra-large sizes. It’s also a good idea to use a bottle of lubrication that’s compatible with your dildo’s material
    • Realistic Dildos

    These dildos have a life-like design and a higher quality of rubber to add realism. There are different types of realistic dildo styles so that they can meet your fantasy or so that you can role play with your partner.
