What to Keep In Mind When Buying a Thrusting Dildo

Dildos are fun and all, but what if you want something with a little more oomph? Well, that’s where a handy-dandy thrusting dildo comes into play. But with so many versions and style variations on the market, how do you know which to spend your hard-earned money on?

Well, in this article, we will break down all the essentials.

THRUSTING DILDO VS VIBRATORS


This is pretty self-explanatory. We have dildos, which are just hunks of silicone and you have to do all the work. Then there are vibrators with lovely motors inside to make you happily squirm. Finally thrusting dildos have a different kind of motor with a push/pull mechanic inside. Whether they have a vibrator as well depends on the model.

Which you choose depends on how much control you want to have over your thrusting, or even how sensitive you are. For example, women who find penetration painful might want to avoid thrusting dildos.

Budget can also be a factor. Most thrusting vibratos aren’t cheap.

PRICE POINTS TO CONSIDER


This brings us to our next point. For the most part, in the sex toy world, you very much get what you pay for. So, if you shell out pennies for something, don’t expect it to blow your mind. However, that doesn’t mean that a $200 toy is going to automatically be your best friend.

You’ll need to look at a few design factors alongside how much they cost.

That being said, anything with body-safe materials will START in the $50 to $60 range.

THRUSTING DILDOS – MATERIALS & MECHANICS

Okay, here is the bread and butter of where you’re going to make your big decisions. Let’s break it down into steps…

  • Is it made from body-safe silicone? If not, take a hard pass. And no silicone blends.
  • Does it look fairly easy to clean? If there are odd nooks and crannies it might need a bit more attention after you use it.
  • Also, is it waterproof or just splash-proof? It’s always better to be waterproof! Even if you don’t use it in the bathtub or shower, it still makes things easier to clean.
  • What is the shaft’s “give” structure? This means the section of the silicone that stretches and recoils as the toy moves in and out. Some have an accordion-like design. Others just have a normal sheath that stretches.
  • Where is the accordion section located? This is important for anyone who has a beautifully ample labia. If the “give-structure” is located near the base of the toy, it might pinch your lovely folds. If so, best get something with the accordion part near to top or one that stretches.
  • Do reviews say the toy is “firm” or has some flexibility? Usually, people prefer toys with at least a little “give.”
  • What do reviews say about the motor(s)? Is it strong enough or falls flat like a poor lover?
  • How long is the thrust?  Is it just 1 inch or 3? There’s no right or wrong. It depends on how deep you like it.
  • Are the buttons in an easy place to press?
  • If there is a g-spot bump, does it look comfortable? (I saw a toy with a bump that looked painfully high, but some might love that).

TRUSTING DILDO BELLS & WHISTLES


There are other lovely add-ons that might be worth the few extra dollars. 

  • Some toys have a rabbit end to massage/vibrate the clit.
  • A few come with vibrators so it’s easier for you to change settings (rather than blinding reaching for buttons or you can give it to a partner).
  • If this is a toy you want to use anally, make sure it has a FLARED base!
  • A few have suction cups so you can attach them to a flat surface and have a hands-free experience. But if you do, make sure reviews say it’s got a good suction. Far too many have crappy bases.
  • Some toys have gone super high-tech. You can control them with your smartphone from any distance. You could be in one country while your partner is in another. Or the toys can sync. This means that whatever one toy does, the other one will react.

THRUSTING DILDO END THOUGHTS


Another wonderful thing about these toys is that they are infinitely cheaper than a sex machine. They’re also great if you and your partner are in the middle of a hot session but one of you needs a break and the other is still raring to go (hey, there is ZERO shame in that!).

Now that you have all the facts, keep them handy whenever you do your next shopping run. Go over reviews carefully (including online video reviews) and check off all the boxes of what’s vital for your own purchase. After all, it’s not going to be a cheap one.

And, if you find one that you fall in love with, but the price tag is a bit steep, don’t worry! Bookmark it and wait for special occasions like Black Fridays or Christmas. There are always sales!
