Editorial Team |

The dildo is the oldest, most-used sex toy in the history of the world; today, the dildo offer we have for you is staggering: stainless steel dildos, glass dildos, silicone dildos, and so much more. Our experts here discuss all you need to know about how to ride a dildo for maximum pleasure. We also discuss safety tips when using a dildo and share some tips and tricks that will help you uncover hidden delights when riding a dildo.

Before You Start Using a Dildo

Riding a dildo will be far more enjoyable and thrilling when you prepare. So, to help you, we have prepared the following steps that can help you prepare for a deeply satisfying dildo play:

1. Create the ambiance

Setting the right mood and preparing always makes for better sex. Turn down the lights, turn on your favorite tunes, light some candles, put on some seductive lingerie, and maybe even apply some sexy perfume. Basically, do whatever gets you in the mood for some sexual play!

2. Choose the correct dildo

We urge you to review your needs and wants, do your research, and select the dildo model that is most appropriate for you. We are talking about getting a dildo in the perfect size from a body-safe material and one that will be a long-lived, sexy toy you'll be happy to use.

3. Don't skip the foreplay

Foreplay is essential for any satisfactory, sexy play, and devoting enough time to foreplay pays off immensely. It allows you to warm up your body and prepare it for masturbation, and we suggest some plays like:

  • Give your clit, nipples, and other erogenous areas a sensual massage;
  • Play with vibrating toys that can help with arousal, like finger vibes and bullet vibes;
  • Take your time and get to know your body before reaching for the dildo.

4. Be generous with the lube

Don't forget the lube when it is time to use the dildo. Even if you feel you are aroused and wet enough, we still advise you to add a dollop of lube to yourself and the dildo, as it will ease insertion and be more pleasurable to ride. Always use a lube that is compatible with the material of your dildo, or stick with a water-based lube, as this is compatible with all sex toys.

5. Clean the dildo and yourself after use

After you enjoy the afterglow, we urge you to thoroughly clean your dildo and other toys you've used. Follow the manufacturer's instructions on cleaning, and make sure you use antibacterial sex toy cleaner, dry your dildo well and store your dildo in a proper sex toy storage bag.

How to Use a Dildo

You can use a dildo vaginally in various ways, but it mainly depends on the design of your dildo and your preference. We advise you to slowly insert the dildo along the entire length of your vagina, feeling the stretch of your inner muscles and enjoying the sensations. Then, you should try shorter strokes and see what you like best; focus on how your body moves and do the moves you like.

If you choose a rigid toy or a highly textured model, you can feel the pressure on your vaginal walls, and if you get a soft or bendable dildo, you will feel fullness without too much pressure. Try aiming at your G-spot, as this is the place on the front vaginal wall that is full of nerve endings that, when properly stimulated, can bring immense sexual pleasure. If you wish to specifically target the G-spot, we advise you to get a special curved G-spot dildo that has anatomically correct curves for easy maneuvering.

How to Ride a Dildo

Riding a dildo is a great way to explore your body and learn your preferences, and it is also excellent practice for the real thing. Using a dildo by yourself can help you understand the positions and angles that you enjoy the most and try something new that you've been thinking about. You can also use the dildo to demonstrate how you want to be pleasured by your partner.

Here, our experts cover the main ways you can ride a dildo, but if you need more tips, please browse our blog, where we offer a wealth of knowledge on choosing and using different sex toys:

How to Use a Suction Cup Dildo?

The suction cup dildo is the best option for riding, especially for hands-free riding, as you can stick this to different smooth surfaces and ride it to completion. If you stick the suction cup dildo to the floor, a chair, or a smooth table, you can sit down on it, grind down, and control the depth of penetration. If you like sex from behind, you can stick your suction cup dildo to a wall, the shower wall, a door, your fridge, or even on a mirror and push yourself back on the dildo. It will allow you to control the angle, and you'll have a free hand to tease your erogenous zones.

How to Use a Vibrating Dildo?

There are some excellent vibrating dildos that look like a regular dildo but perform as a vibrator. These are great for people just starting with sex toys and don't yet know what they would enjoy. The vibrating dildo allows you to use it as a regular dildo, but you can also engage the vibrations and enjoy dual stimulation. Use the vibrating dildo to tease your erogenous zones, like your nipples, clit, or perineum, or simply ride it as you please. An expert tip: rude the dildo with the vibrations off, and engage them when you need that extra push over the edge for a deeply powerful orgasm.

How to Use Glass & Metal Dildos?

The glass and metal dildos are rigid and are perfect for deep massage of your vagina. You can also use these for milking the G-spot, as the firm shafts don't yield but press and stretch your inner tissues and are unforgiving when it comes to targeted stimulation.

But metal and glass dildos are excellent for temperature play, as they conduct heat perfectly. You can keep them in a bowl with warm water to warm them or keep them in ice water to cool them down. Try temperature play, as it adds another level of sensation to your sexy time. Make sure the water is not too hot to avoid burning your nether regions.

How to Use a Thrusting Dildo?

The thrusting dildo looks like a real penis, but it also has a thrusting feature, imitating the up-down motion for sex. Different models can also vibrate for some more sensations during use. You can use a thrusting dildo solo, guiding it with your hand, or you can get a model that has a suction cup base that you can stick on any flat surface and use hands-free.

Another way is to give the thrusting dildo to your partner and have them pleasure you with it. If you want a really advanced, hands-free option, you can also take a look at thrusting sex machines, which provide a whole other level of pleasure.

Positions to Ride a Dildo

We touched on some positions you can use with your dildo, but here we list some more options that you can try. The most comfortable one is to lie down on your back, bend your knees and lift your butt a little, to find the best angle of penetration. You can guide the dildo with your hand between your legs, or you can reach from under a leg and try it that way, or even give the dildo to your partner and have them penetrate you with it.

Another pose is to lie face-down, reach underneath your body, and guide the dildo. You can also reach behind your back and guide the dildo, and this pose is incredibly comfortable for male dildo play, as it facilitates P-spot targeting.

Try sitting and playing with your dildo. For this, we advise you to sit on the edge of a chair or your bed, spread your legs, and guide your dildo. If you are feeling daring, lean against a table or a wall, spread your legs, and guide the dildo where you need it. Try this pose in front of a mirror for some visual stimulation or in front of your partner to drive them and yourself wild.

Tips for Playing Solo with a Dildo

If you like to use your dildo solo, then here are several options to try:

  • Missionary – as we described this pose above, you lie on your back and guide the dildo between your legs.
  • Doggy – this is America's favorite sex pose, and it is perfect for playing solo with a dildo. You can control the dildo with your hand, or you can stick it to a flat vertical surface and use it like that.
  • Squatting – attach your dildo to a secure surface and squat down on it; you get to control the depth, angle, and movements and enjoy hands-free play.

Tips for Playing with a Partner and a Dildo

When you engage your partner in your sexy playtime with a dildo, the possibilities are endless, and you are llimited by your imagination. So, here are a couple of expert tips:

  • Blow & Bounce – this refers to bouncing on the dildo while you perform oral sex on your partner. You get to control how you move over the dildo while simultaneously giving pleasure to your partner. For a mix-and-match playtime, you can perform oral sex on your partner while they guide the dildo in and out of your body.
  • Spoon – lie on your side and have your parther lie behind you and have them guide the dildo in your vagina. Or, if you are feeling adventurous, you can lie on your side and guide a dildo in your vagina while your partner penetrates you anally.

Men & Dildo Use

Dildos are not only for women; there are a wide array of male dildos that are specifically designed for male anal play. The male dildos are designed to target the P-spot or prostate that is on the front wall of the anus. When stimulated, the p-spot heightens arousal and causes intense full-body orgasms, something you have to experience to believe.

When using a male dildo, use a lot of lube and start by slowly inserting the dildo in the anus. Relax, breathe, and listen to your body's reactions. Don't push too hard, but slowly and carefully locate the P-spot – you will instantly feel it when you hit it. Then, gently rub this place with the dildo and enjoy the sensations.

Final thoughts

Finding the perfect dildo can be a challenge, but we hope our guides are helpful and informative. Also, you can get several different models and experiment with them, finding the ones you like best so you know your likes and preferences. When you use a dildo, don't be shy, but experiment with positions and approaches, and remember that there is no wrong way to play, as long as the result is a good time.
