Why choose a silicone dildo?
Why is it that you just have to choose a silicone dildo? It is somewhat more expensive than the ones made of rubber or plastic and it looks just like that! The reason for choosing a silicone dildo is the much more natural feel. The silky soft silicone is made for sex toys, it absorbs the body's heat best and feels much more natural on the skin.
The relatively new material has invaded the sex toy market in recent years. The reason is simple, it simply feels better and thus also stimulates better. The material was originally developed for the pharmaceutical world, where it has a myriad of applications. One of the places where it is used a lot is with prostheses. Material is incredibly compatible with the skin and is therefore perfect as an intermediary between e.g. leg and leg prosthesis.
When people first discovered how well it blends with the skin, it wasn't long before the first sex toys came with silicone. Fun Factory was one of the brands that was first with the new and particularly good material. Since then, it has gained more and more ground in the industry and well over half of the sex toys sold today are coated with medical silicone.
Silicone sex toys feel better!
The surface of silicone is incredibly soft and does not bite into the skin like rubber can. When you drag a silicone dildo over the skin it feels nice and soft. The thicker the material, the more realistic it feels. Here the difference also comes in the different models, the more silicone that is used, the more expensive they typically become. The material is still relatively expensive to produce, which is why the price of silicone sex toys is also always slightly higher.
The silky smooth surface of a silicone dildo provides a more natural stimulation. It therefore just feels better and more natural. Silicone doesn't really have any disadvantages, except that you can only use water-based lube. A silicone-based lubricant can help to destroy the surface, so it will no longer be as smooth and soft.
Silicone is a flexible material, so if the dildo is made of pure silicone you will be able to bend it even more than a rubber dildo. The surface feels a bit like extra soft silk, which is also why you often hear it described as silky soft.
Which silicone dildo should you choose?
If you have bought a dildo before and have a favourite, you can easily transfer the size and color to your new silicone dildo. It depends on what you like best, whether it should be big, small, thin, thick or have a special colour. The surface is and how soft it should be is somewhat defined by what you are willing to sacrifice.
The more money you want to give, the better product you get. Silicone is divided into different "grades" and the better material you choose, the more expensive it will be. The higher the grade, the softer the surface. In some models, a thicker layer has been used, this also helps to make it feel softer.
