The Most Popular Dildo Sizes


Does size matter? Is there such a thing as too big? How big is too big? With so many different sizes of dildos, which ones are the most popular? 6 inches? 10 inches? 13 inches? 17 inches?? If the average penis size is 5-6 inches, is a 20 inch dildo really that necessary?

We put that question up to the internet, and collected data on the average monthly search volume in the United States for dildos of all sizes Here are the top 5:

Measuring Dildo Size

First things first: what do we mean by Dildo size? We typically compare dildos based on their length and girth. The average penis is 5-6 inches in length and 1.5 inches in girth. Yet some of the most popular dildo sizes are greater than 6 inches. The reality is that many realistic shaped dildos are quite large and are much larger than most real-life penises.

Dildos can be quite expensive, so choosing a size you’ll like is important. Often times it’s hard to size up the dildos from the pictures online, so the more you know beforehand, the better. The two measurements we use to size dildos are length and girth.

Length - When we talk about length, we’re either talking about the total length of the dildo which may include the flared base and testicles, or how much of the dildo is insertable. A dildo with a large base and testicals may be listed as a certain length, but only some of the dildo may be insertable.

Girth - The girth of the dildo is either listed as diameter (the width of the shaft), or the circumference (the distance around the shaft). The vast majority of dildos have a diameter that is between 1 and 2 inches. For reference, the average penis girth is 1.5 inches. Depending on the dildo’s material, you may feel more or less of the listed girth.

Bigger is Not Always Better

The most popular dildo sizes aren’t meant for everyone. Dildos can have many purposes and you may be looking for something more than just how deep it can go or wide it is. Both the G-spot in a woman and the prostate in a man are located only 2.5 to 3 inches inside. Although long dildos may be more popular, they are not always the most pleasurable and what people desire. For this reason, Velvet Co.’s collection of vibrating dildos deliver 2.5 to 3 inches of powerful vibrating thrust, depending on the model.

Finding the Right-Sized Dildo for You

Whether you’re a beginner and you’re looking for your first dildo or you’re more experienced and looking to fill yourself or your partner, dildo size can make a huge difference.

Generally, beginners should opt for slimmer, shorter models, and then work their way up to larger models. If you’re more experienced, then you can add to the girth or length of the dildo you already have, choose a stronger or harder material, or choose a curved shape for greater arousal.

If you have a partner (that is open to getting measured) then you can compare what dildo size you or your partner would like with the real thing. You can also measure your carrots, cucumbers, or zucchini to get a good idea of how much length and girth is right for you (but please don’t use them as a dildo!).

Keep in mind that if you feel like the dildo you ordered is not big enough, you can always purchase a “penis sleeve” which can add length or girth to your dildo’s size

Using Bigger Dildos

Would you like to be stretched and filled to to expand the sensations? You may want to consider adding more girth to your dildo. Adding more girth may mean more stimulation.

If you’re testing out a bigger dildo for the first time, it’s best to use a lot of lubricant and start slowly. Be sure to listen to what your body is telling you and add more lubricant as needed. If it gets to the point where you’re still uncomfortable and it hurts to continue, you should consider going down in size and getting a dildo with smaller girth and/or length. Remember that if you start with a smaller dildo, you can always add on penis sleeves to increase the size of the dildo.
