Are you in a couple? Dig in, ‘cuz exploring the world of dildos is going to show you why they are a great sex toy for you both — without a doubt one of the best couples’ sex toys.

Let’s admit that some sex toys are very specific. If you’re not the proud owner of a clit, you might pass by a clit tickler toy. If you’re rocking a vulva, you might not be tempted by a cock ring.

Dildos, on the other hand, are something all couples can equally enjoy, kind of like the sex toy equivalent of a democracy sausage. In the same way that everyone can vote and happily chow down a snag, everyone in this wide brown land can get turned on by a dildo.

So, the top five reasons dildos make a great couple’s toy are:

Just for starters, consider our many categories of dildos, and please, explore them all to find some you like:

Reason 2: Versatility

In the wonderful world of dildos, there is literally something for everyone, whether you’re female, male or non-binary. Dildos are an amazingly versatile sex toy and couples can share dildos. They can be used in any orifice, and are peachy for all kinds of sex play, whether oral, anal or vaginal. There are dildos for all variations of couples and are an ideal toy for whatever kind of sex tickles your fancy.

There are dildos that you can use together (harness and double-ended), and dildos that are great for solo play.

Reason 3: Size

There is more variation in size when it comes to dildos than in almost any other sex toy. This is very useful for many couples and opens up room to have a range of toy sizes that suit each of you best.

Are you a beginner? Small dildos and probers are slimmer in girth and are more comfortable to use when you’re starting out. They’re also useful if you’re smaller-framed.

Many of us begin our sexual exploration with our fingers, but, as delightful as those digits are, they are no match for the size of most dildos. So, if you want something with more meat on it, realistic dildos are a good choice.

Let’s state the obvious – dildos work. They do a great job at making you toey, lighting your fire and getting you to the finish line.

Where a wang might give up the race before you’re ready, a dildo is an ultra-marathon athlete that won’t stop until you break the tape.
