8 thoughts on “Silicone Dildo With Suction Cup

  1. Do you own a sex toy and what is it? How often do you use it?
    For women, it usually starts and ends with a vibrator or a vibrating apparatus. With different shapes, sizes, textures, and colors, I would assume that far more women have purchased or own a sex toy than compared with men.

    Please don’t say that your sex toy is your cellphone that you just put on vibrate and ask your friends to call you over and over because that would be super…hot!

    • I have quite a few, but then again, I also have a blog dealing with sex and sexuality, so that might make more sense (as I occasionally review toys on there and generally hare more interest in them than just for private, personal use).

      My absolute favorite right now, that I use almost everyday, is my Tantus G-Force- a long (11″) black silicone curved dildo with a bulbous head and textured grip handle; its length and curve make it perfect for me, who wants thrusting penetration, but doesn’t like using her hands to do it (I can position it on the bed so I can literally hump myself onto it, leaving my hands free). I also use my Rabbit vibrator often, since you really can’t reproduce the sensation of those vibrating bunny ears- the way they sandwich your clit in is quite intense and makes other vibrators seem kind of weak. I have a small Tantus dildo called the Acute or Swirl or something like that for anal masturbation, but it’s not amazing or anything; any small, good-quality silicone dildo would be just as fine. Oh, and I have an inflatable dildo (I believe it’s called the Inflatable Black Stud) that I enjoy using every now and then when I want a stretch, although I do have some issues with it (its rubbery smell, too firm core, and too much length are all negatives to me).

      Those are toys I use regularly. I also have purchased or won (I entered a sex toy contest for $1000 giveaway and won) some black rope for shibari, BDSM goggles, black latex elbow-length gloves, a set of glow-in-the-dark vibrators and jelly sleeves, a small (too small!) glass dildo, a massive pink suction-cup base jelly dildo, an OhMiBod vibrator (that absolutely sucks!), a G-Swirl (that was too small *and* whose motor quit on me in like a month’s time), a smallish velvet-touch twist-cap black vibrator, a bright red Feeldoe double-ended dildo in “stout” size, a thigh harness, a battery-operated vibrating Fukoku glove, a massage candle, a tongue-shaped anal vibrator, a waterproof bath vibrator in the shape of a sponge, a really gross-smelling, grody-looking buttpl*g that I just don’t want at all, vibrating nipple pasties, a Nexus prostate massager (wanted for the anal, not because I have a prostate, obviously), some ben wa balls (that I absolutely cannot keep in- weak p*ssy!), a flexible anal vibrator that I’ve really been wanting to try but for some reason haven’t, a Zeus Electrogasm e-stim toy, and a soft, small silicone packing d*ck that I never use but love knowing that I own. At least, I think that’s all I have- I might be forgetting something.

      Of course, I still have a wishlist a mile long of other toys I want- right now I’m thinking of buying the Nobessence Romp buttpl*g (which would set me back $110 . . . but I’ve been disappointed with cheap ones, so maybe going luxury is the best way to get something good for me).

      Hope that answers your question!

  2. Is there a particularly recommendable dildo brand?
    Looking to get a toy and just want to make an informed decision.
    I’ve considered the adult store option, thinking that there would surely be one in town. But no, the nearest one is like an hour away. Not really worth the price/gas IMO. It left me with reading reviews for the products on amazon. But not all of the toys have reviews. Gah I’m so lost.

    • Certainly- there are lots, in fact! Here are some things you might want to consider:

      * Material

      - Feel. What do you want your toy to feel like? Dildos come in a variety of materials now, from hard, solid materials like plastic, glass/lucite, ceramic, wood, metal (light-weight aluminum or heavy stainless steel), to firm or medium-firm silicone, to soft, squishy flexible materials like jelly, rubber, or elastomer. Beyond hardness/softeness and flexibility, “feel” may also be important- do you mind if it feel rubbery, or would you prefer it felt like real skin, the way Cyberskin and Vixskin can?
      - Cleanliness/Storage. Some toy materials like jelly are porous and cannot be sterilized or cleaned easily, meaning they are not good if you want to share the toy with someone else or use it for both vaginal and anal play. Others, like silicone, can be easily sterilized. Storage is also important- some toys’ materials make it easy to toss it into a drawer and be done with it, while others need special care- jelly toys should not touch one another, lest they potentially chemically react with other toys and leach their colors or even “melt”, and cyberskin needs to be kept dusted with cornstarch.
      - Toxicity. Some materials are known to contain phthalates, plasticizers which are toxic- to what degree is not known for sure, but if you want to be safe, you should use such toys with a condom, and potentially avoid them altogether.
      - Compatibility. If you love silicone lube, you might want to avoid getting a silicone toy- you won’t be able to use them together without possibly melting the toy. It’s always a good idea to check what your toy material can and cannot be used with, and make sure that isn’t a problem for you.
      - Other. Other concerns may include longevity (a stainless steel dildo is going to last far, far longer than a cyberskin one), durability (you can toss your silicone dildo across the room, no harm or foul, but a glass dildo is going to need more care and consideration), sensation maximization (glass and stainless steel can allow for temperature play), friction (a drop of lube is often all you need for very smooth materials like glass or metal, while silicone is going to need more), and so on.

      * Design

      - Stimulation. What are you looking for in stimulation? Vaginal or anal, or both? Just for solo use, or to possibly be used on another person, and if so, by hand, or in a strap-on harness? Do you want basic in-and-out penetration, or are you aiming to stimulate the G-spot (or P-spot)? Do you want texture- i.e. stimulation provided by ridges, swirls, bumps, “bloops”, or something straight and smooth? Do you want a dildo that can provide some clitoral stimulation as well, or solely vaginal stimulation through penetration? Do you want a toy you can thrust, or one that is meant to be mostly still inside you?
      - Ergonomics. Some dildos are designed with your hands and wrists in mind, others may leave you feeling like you’ve got carpal tunnel after a long session of thrusting. Some have handles, some have wide, flat bases you can hold, some are shaped to make it easier to use on yourself without any strain. You may want to keep in mind that if both of your hands are slippery with lube or secretions, it can be harder to hold and maneuver certain toys, while others are designed so that’s not an issue.
      - Transformability. Some dildos come with holes at the bases into which you can insert small bullet vibrators- giving you the ability to add some buzz if you’d like. Some come with wide, flat bases so that you can use them inside strap-on harnesses. Some come with suction cup bases, so you can either use them hand-held, or stick ‘em on any surface and plop down (or back that thing up) onto them. In other words, if you want the option to use your toy in more than one way, you do have that option for purchase.
      - Size. Most manufacturers carry a range, but it’s up to you to decide what sort of dimensions you are looking for in terms of length and girth. Some rubber dildos are inflatable, meaning you can pump them up to whatever size you want.
      - Aesthetics. Are you looking for a realistic dildo- flesh-colored with a head, veined shaft, balls, or only one of these features or a mixture of a few? Or are you looking for something semi-realistic or non-realistic? Any preferences for color or design? Some are exceptionally pretty- you could leave them on your coffee table and people would think they were pieces of modern art, while others are pretty clearly dildos.

      Overall, it’s hard to give a good recommendation without knowing specifically what you’re looking for, you know? Suffice to say, some really great brands include:

      * Njoy. http://www.njoytoys.com/
      * Nobessence. http://nobessence.com/home.htm
      * Tantus. http://www.tantusinc.com/catalog/Dildos
      * Vixen. http://vixencreations.com/store/dildos.php

  3. I am looking at getting a toy for anal pleasure and have no idea where to start. Can a experienced person help?
    I have used some toys for a while now but never for anal pleasure. Was wondering if I could use a standard dildo or should I use something different. I mainly want something I can suction to the shower wall or bath tub.
    While I have googled this subject seems there are too many hits to sort through.

  4. When getting a dildo, what should I look for?
    It’s my first time getting one, and I’m not sure what I should get. I’ve seen Silicone ones, Jelly, Rubber, I just don’t know. I also want one that has a suction cup, but I’m not sure. My friends tell me to get a suction cup for showers. I just want to know what material I should get, being that it is my first one, I want to at least make it a comfortable experience. HELP!

    • In terms of safety, pure silicone (NOT TPE), glass, and metal are best — they’re not porous, so germs can’t incubate in them and they’re sterilizable. Acrylic is also acceptable. For a beginner, I’d recommend pure silicone, as it’s the softest and most flexible. Silicone also holds heat really well, which is nice. Never buy jelly, rubber, elastomer, or similar porous materials unless you’re willing to use a condom with your toy every single time you use it (which is like a 50ยข surcharge every time you play with it, assuming you’re not latex-sensitive), since porous materials cannot be sterilized.

      I highly recommend ordering from EdenFantasys (edenfantasys.com) — they make a point of giving you lots of information about each toy they offer, including plenty of user reviews, information on how safe the material is, how to clean it, and what other sorts of materials it can be used with safely. Good Vibrations (goodvibes.com) is also very good, and since you’re in San Francisco, you might be able to visit their brick-and-mortar store — I believe it’s in Berkeley.

      Honestly, I would recommend against a suction cup — they generally don’t work very well, and it severely limits your choice of toys.

      Also, are you sure you just want a dildo and not an insertable vibrator? Good Vibrations sells some very good ones for beginners pretty cheap.
