How to Choose a Small Dildo

How to Choose a Small Dildo

Editorial Team |

The mighty dildo is a fun, sexy toy, and using one can genuinely refresh things in the bedroom. But not all dildos are created the same; dildos come in a great variety of materials, shapes, and sizes. Often overlooked for their bigger counterparts, small dildos usually come in lengths of less than five inches. While this may seem small to many, small dildos are fun, versatile, and sexy and are a fantastic introductory toy when looking to get into using sex toys.

Let us discuss small dildos and how you can select a small dildo that will satisfy your needs and wants. Before we continue, we must note that small or slim dildos are often referred to as mini dildos, and these can be an excellent way to introduce sex toys to vaginal and anal play.

What is a Small Dildo?

Any dildo that is less than five inches is in the group of small dildos. The smaller the dildo, the easier it is to use, and the more uses you can find for it. For example, you can use it for vaginal and anal stimulation even if you are a complete novice in sex toys.

Another possible use is for men who wish to explore things with anal play but don’t want to be overwhelmed by a larger model. A small dildo is excellent for teasing during foreplay and for masturbation, and you can even discretely carry it in your bag when you travel.

Small Dildo Types and Models

Small dildos look almost the same as their large cousins, the regular and large dildos. That means a small dildo has a shaft that can be realistic or non-realistically designed; it has a glans, a set of balls, a suction cup base, and other features. Still, these come in a variety of colors, textures, and shapes, and you have a lot to consider when selecting a small dildo:

  • Basic Small Dildo: a regular, phallic-shaped dildo with no additional features; these are best suited for vaginal penetration;
  • Slim Small Dildo: usually thinner than other models, the slim dildos are intended for anal training, and most come with a flared base to ensure they don’t wander too far inside. Usually, these are the perfect size for prostate massage.
  • Small Suction Cup Dildo: these look the same as their bigger counterparts but have a diminished size. Their base is a suction cup that sticks to most flat surfaces and allows hands-free use, making these suitable for teasing.
  • Double-Ended Small Dildos: These are novelty items that are exciting and fun to use. Intended for simultaneous vaginal and anal stimulation, these can be used solo or shared with a partner.

How to Select a Small Dildo?

Selecting a small dildo is the same as selecting any other sex toy; the main difference here is the size, as all the other features are almost the same. So, when it comes to selecting a small dildo, you need to note things such as the material of the dildo, the texture and flexibility, lube compatibility, and extra features.

Small Dildo Size: The small dildos range in length, but the maximum size to be considered a small dildo is five inches. The most common small dildo sizes are:

  • Very small dildos - 2 to 3 inches in length
  • Extra small dildos - 3 to 4 inches in length
  • Small dildos - 2 to 5 inches in length

Material: when selecting a small dildo, you need to look for a model made from body-safe materials that provide the experience you like. There are models made from silicone, glass, metal, rubber, PVC, and Cyberskin. Each material provides a different user experience and has different flexibility and textures.

Added Features: there are small dildos with extra features like a suction cup base, and there are also some models that can vibrate for extra stimulation.

Small Dildo Benefits

Small dildos come with several exciting benefits. Users who have never used a dildo before can feel intimidated by the size of an enormous dildo, so a tiny dildo is a better option. Also, if a novice tries to use a model that is too big for them, they might be turned off by the experience and even get hurt during the experience. However, a small dildo is more comfortable to insert, and it needs less effort.

A small dildo is also very suitable for G-spot stimulation for the ladies. The G-spot is only a couple of inches in the vagina, and a small dildo may be the perfect way to stimulate it. The same goes for P-spot stimulation for the guys, as a small dildo is easier to insert in the anus and stimulate the prostate. Many small dildos have a thinner diameter, which takes less effort to insert.

Small Dildo Safety Considerations

You should be careful when using a small dildo, the same as you would other toys. However, using a small dildo means you should be careful when inserting it, as you don’t want to shove it too far and risk losing it inside. That is why you should opt for a model that has a flared base that is safer to use.

Another consideration is the lube compatibility. Always use a lube that is compatible with the material your small dildo is made of. We suggest you stick to a quality water-based lube that is compatible with all dildo materials.

If you want to experiment with your dildo and use it for vaginal and anal use, we recommend you use it with a condom, as it will help keep everything more sanitary and easier to clean. Please note that you should always thoroughly clean your small dildo like you would any other insertable sex toy.

Using a Small Dildo

You can use a small dildo in almost any situation. They are fantastic for solo play in both vaginal and anal stimulation. The benefit of small suction cup dildos is that you can use them anywhere around the home; you only need to stick them to a smooth surface.

If used with a partner, the small dildo can be a fantastic introduction to double penetration without feeling any of the pain you might encounter from using a larger model. Because they are often thinner, small dildos won’t be too invasive in the anus as your partner focuses on the vagina, for example.

You can use a small dildo that fits a strap-on harness and use it for pegging a male partner or pleasuring a female partner. Please use your imagination to make the most of your small dildo.

Cleaning and Storing a Small Dildo

You need to take care of your small dildo just like you would any other dildo. Cleaning it depends on the material your small dildo is made of, and since most small dildos are waterproof, you can easily wash these.

Using antibacterial soap and warm water will do the trick with most dildos, especially non-porous models made from silicone, glass, and metal. If your small dildo is made from porous materials like TPE or PVC, you should be more diligent when washing it, but an antibacterial sex toy cleaner should do the trick. After it is washed and dry, store it in a lint-free sex toy storage bag, away from heat and direct sunlight.

FAQs

Will a small dildo deliver a less satisfying experience?

Not at all; this is down to the personal preference. If you are new to dildos, you will most likely find you have a much more beautiful experience than if you chose a larger one too soon. Work your way up until you find the perfect size for you.

 

My partner has a small vagina. Will a small dildo fit on a harness?

As long as the dildo is designed to fit into a strap-on harness, then there’s no reason why you can’t please your partner using a small dildo. The attachment will most likely be of a standard size, and it’s the size of the insertable length and girth, which will be smaller. It also means you will need to push closer to your partner for fuller penetration, but this can deliver a more intimate experience, too.

 

What is the difference between a small dildo for a vagina and one for anal stimulation?

The main difference will be the addition of a flared base or a pair of testicles to master the realism and safety aspect of the toy. These factors will prevent a small dildo from being inserted too far. Avoid pushing it too far, and always have a good grip on the base.
