DILDOS are the classic sex toy – we all know what they are and what they’re good for, but with all the options out there it’s tricky to figure out which is the best dildo for you.
The renowned sex toys are brilliant for heightening sexual pleasure for all genders, whether you’re single or coupled up – so it’s high time you got handsy with the best dildos out there.
But where to start? Whether you go realistic, extra-large, other-worldly, ribbed, textured, vibrating, shower-friendly, double-ended; choose one suitable for vaginal play, anal play, and more, the options really are endless.
Dildos aren’t a new invention either, with reports claiming dildos first reared their heads in prehistoric times, with one discovered ‘sex aid’ predicted to be 28,000 years old.
The first rubber dildos cropped up in the 19th century and centuries ago, dildos – or ‘marital aids’ – were used to help aid so-called ‘female hysteria’ (see: sexual frustration).
Now, dildos are thankfully as diverse as they come – responsible for upping your self-care routine, especially since masturbating and orgasming via penetration can help better your sleep, and even help soothe pain relief. So there’s really no excuse…
Luckily, here at Sun Selects, we are here to help you up your shopping (and pleasure game) by rounding up the best dildos available on the market right now leaving you less overwhelmed, and more orgasmic. O-o-o-o-h yes!
