Maintaining the cleanliness of your dildo will ensure the lifespan and shelf life of your toy. Cleaning your dildo is easy! We recommended investing in a natural foam sex toy cleaner to avoid those scary chemicals and phthalate residue. There are tons on the market, but generally, you’re going to want to try to pay attention to the type of material your dildo is as this will determine the means and measures for cleaning. Glass, metal, and silicone dildos are usually nonporous and can be cleaned just fine with soap and water or a toy cleaner. Squirt a few pumps onto your toy, rinse with warm water if your dildo is waterproof, or wipe down with some baby wipes or a clean damp cloth. Never submerge your dildo fully in water if it’s not waterproof! Remember to clean your dildo after every use to prevent the buildup of bacteria and to also prevent infections.
How do I choose the right dildo for me?
Choosing the right dildo for yourself all depends on what you are seeking out for your pleasure! Will you be using this dildo for solo masturbation? With a partner? As a strap on? It’s also important to consider the type of stimulation you are looking to experience. Are you focusing on G-spot stimulation? Anal stimulation? Maybe you're choosing to stimulate the P-spot around your prostate or even add some clitoral stimulation into the mix as well. Once you decide the type of stimulation and experience you are seeking with your dildo, you can start to browse Wet for Her’s selections! Wet for Her carries strapless, squirting, G-spot, anal, metal, and glass dildos as well as a variety of strap-on dildos for you to choose from!
What materials are dildos made out of?
From silicone, vinyl, glass, metal, crystal, latex, and even jelly rubber, dildos come in a variety of materials, all of which mostly determine the type of sexual play you’ll be engaging in. For example, glass dildos are great for anal play and G-spot stimulation thanks to their smooth texture and easiness to clean.
Are there any materials which are better than others?
It’s important to note that dildos are porous or nonporous depending on the type of material they are made from. Porous materials, such as latex, jelly rubber, or vinyl dildos carry microscopic holes which penetrate the material. They can carry residue and bacteria even after being cleaned, which is a huge no-no! Some materials also contain phthalates, or a group of chemicals added to toys to increase flexibility. Don’t let them fool you! Just a warning, phthalates are inherently toxins to the body! Add a dildo that is also porous and you’re asking for a visit to the doctor.
On the flip side, non-porous materials, such as glass, metal, or silicone, do not carry these microscopic holes and are safe for use even after cleaning. They do not pose a risk to body health if cleaned regularly after every use. This is why Wet for Her offers dildos made from these quality materials, such as 100% medical grade silicone to ensure all products are phthalate-free while providing a silky texture that is easy to clean and maintain.
What size should I get? How do I choose a size?
Using a dildo can take some getting used to, especially if you don’t have much experience in penetration. We suggest beginning with something on the smaller side to make insertion a little less strenuous. Dildos can range in sizes as little as 4 inches and as large as 18 inches. It’s important to pay attention to the measurements of the product before you buy your new dildo. If you’re still not sure what you’ll be working with, use a ruler or a sizing guide to test things out. We recommend starting off with about 5 inches to get a feel for it and move on from there!
Whether you’re focusing on some solo play or incorporating a partner into the fun, there are so many benefits to using a dildo!
They are incredibly versatile and they can be an awesome addition to foreplay and sex. Dildos help to get you aroused before penetration. Having sex with a dildo can be incredibly pleasurable, especially if you prefer internal stimulation. Did I mention they are versatile? Many dildos come with a suction-cup base which makes them ideal for hands-free play and some can be used with a strap-on harness if you prefer to get hot with your partner. No matter what you’re using them for, dildos can provide a whirlwind of fun for the first timer.
So you’ve invested in yourself and bought your very first dildo through Wet for Her. Now what? Well, the answer is pretty straightforward, but we understand that trying out a dildo for the first time can be quite intimidating. No worries! We are here to help!
It is wise to take things slow and easy at first. This means starting with a dildo size that won’t be too intense. We want a wow not an ow, right? We recommend starting with a small size and building your way up as your experience with dildo play grows.
How to insert a dildo:
Step 1: Lube up!
You want to make sure you're ready to receive your new dildo by being sexually aroused. You can start by lubing up your dildo by putting lube on the tip of the shaft and working your way down with your hands.
Step 2: Take your time and explore
Start slowly and allow yourself some time getting used to the dildo around your genitals. If you are planning on using it in your vagina or for G-spot stimulation, try some external stimulation before penetration by rubbing the dildo gently along your labia and against your clitoris. This will “warm you up” by increasing sexual arousal and blood flow to your genitals. As for anal penetration, also begin with slow stimulation around the anus, butt cheeks, and perineum. This will help to prepare the anus for penetration. Don’t forget your lube! Some pro tips for safety: make sure your dildo has a tapered end, you’ve used the bathroom beforehand (trust me on this one), and avoid using your sex toy on any other area once it has been inserted into the anus. And for the love of all that is pleasurable, don’t forget to clean your dildo afterwards!
Step 3: Insert your dildo and start exploring some more!
Insert your dildo into your vagina or anus one inch at a time by spreading your labia or your buttcheeks gently. If your partner is around, feel free to ask them for assistance! Remain curious and start exploring to see what feels good. Take things slow and build it up gradually by inserting more of the dildo as you progress. Remember this is your time to shine so don’t be afraid! To get some awesome results with your new dildo, try thrusting it in an angle against the front wall of the vagina once you’ve gotten the rhythm down to stimulate your G-spot. Or alternatively, for those of us with prostates, you can try to stimulate the front wall of the anus in the same manner. If anytime throughout your playtime you feel yourself going dry, don’t hesitate to add more lube!
We definitely recommend using lubricant the first go around (and hey, even each time if you’re about that) to enhance pleasure, sensation, and ease of the toy. Let’s just say it -- lube and dildos are like peanut butter and jelly. You can never have “too much” lube, especially when trying out a new dildo.
Do I need to consider a dildo shape or size?
This depends on the type of sexual play you want to engage in. Ultimately, you’re going to want to find the ideal size for yourself. Dildos range from all sorts of sizes ranging from 4 inches to 18 inches! If you need assistance choosing the right size for yourself or a partner, you can refer to our beginner guide here: https://www.wetforher.com/newbies
As for shape, dildos can come curved, straight, and they can even be doubled! We recommend doing research on the types of dildos you are interested in and go from there with some experimentation. It really is all about experience and seeing what suits your needs best!
Why choose a multi-functioning dildo? (Vibrating, suction, etc.)
To increase variety, versatility, and to help boost fun into your sexual life! Multi-functioning dildos can be used to increase and maintain pleasure in a lot of different ways that your normal dildo can’t.
Suction dildos can be attached to surfaces for riding and vibrating dildos help increase sexual arousal by adding a little spice to your sexual play!

What type of harnesses are there?
There are two main types of harnesses.
Underwear style harnesses, which look like a pair of underwear and range from a variety of styles like boxer briefs, thongs, and boy shorts.
Strap-on style harnesses come with adjustable straps to fit with your body shape. These come in thong and jockstrap styles to fit those with vulvas or penises.
Wet for Her carries a plentitude of harness styles, from boxer brief, thong, jockstrap, lingerie, and boy shorts. Check out our harness selection here: https://www.wetforher.com/all-harnesses
How is a harness supposed to fit?
Harnesses should not fit loosely. In fact, you want them to be as snug as possible, like your “best pair of jeans that make your butt look good” kind of snug. The more well-adjusted your strap-on harness is to your body, the easier it will be to move and control the attached dildo when you're pegging or penetrating your partner.
What types and sizes of dildos can a harness fit?
Harnesses can fit a variety of dildos, from silicone, glass, stainless steel, and pyrex dildos. We recommend using silicone dildos as they are not as heavy and tend to be flexible enough to control for penetrative sex. For beginners who are new to strap-ons, we recommend a dildo that is five to seven inches long and 1.5 to 1.75 inches in diameter. It is always ideal to start off one size down so you don’t get one that is too big. You can also consider texture, so it’s best to experiment with dildos and see which ones you and your partner prefer!
We carry strap-on dildos that vibrate, are curved, suction dildos, G-spot dildos, and even trans* inclusive packers which double as dildos. Check out our strap-on dildos here: https://www.wetforher.com/61-strap-on-dildos
How do I care for a strap-on dildo?
The same way you would care for any of your regular sex toys! Remember to clean them after every use with a foam toy cleanser or by using an antibacterial soap and warm water. To increase its shelf life, we recommend storing it somewhere where it is dry and room temperature, preferably inside of a case or a satin pouch.
Are there any drawbacks to using a strap-on?
No drawbacks! Only more fun ways to explore and have sex!
How do I use a strap-on? What are the general steps I should follow?
The first step you’ll want to take is adjusting the harness to your body. Make sure to adjust it as snug as you can without it being too tight that it’s cutting off circulation or becoming uncomfortable. Next, you’re going to want to insert the dildo into the O-ring, a hole within the harness’s strap which can fit dildos. Make sure everything is well-adjusted.
Afterwards, you and your partner can use lube, with whoever is receiving applying lubricant to themself and whoever is wearing the strap-on applying lubricant to the dildo. Take things slow and be patient and reapply lube whenever necessary. Don’t worry if things start off slow, not everything will remain linear and it is a new form of sexual play, in fact! Remain open-minded and everything should work out great.
What are the benefits of a strap-on?
Strap-ons provide a fun and engaging way to explore new modalities of sex with your partner, especially if one of you would like to provide penetrative sex to the other. Strap-on sex can help improve pleasure for both parties, increase intimacy, and even provide a cool power trip to the one on the giving end. Most couples enjoy strap-ons as they get to see the way their partner’s react to pleasure. Additionally, it’s a great way to stimulate your G-spot, your P-spot or prostate, or your A-spot and anus.
Can a strap-on be combined with a vibrator?
Yes! And that’s one of the greatest benefits of using strap-ons. Some dildos already come with vibrating features and provide even more intensity and pleasure for both wearer and receiver. You are also free to pair your vibrator toy with your strap-on for extra fun. Wet for Her carries a variety of strap-on vibrator dildos for all the wet fun.
Our popular UNION strap-on dildo features an innovative style for both wearer and receiver with amazing vibration: https://www.wetforher.com/union-double-dildo-vibrating-pink.html
We also carry a clitoris ring vibrator you can plug on to your strap-on dildo for even more fun! https://www.wetforher.com/wowhertm-clitoris-ring-vibrator-plug-on.html
Is a strap-on the same thing as a dildo?
Strap-ons are a type of dildo which can be adjusted and fitted to a harness. So in a sense, yes, they are technically the same thing. Some strap-on dildos can be used as regular dildos if you would prefer to do some solo play or use it on your partner without a harness.
