What Is A Dildo & How Do You Use Them

If you’re new to the world of using toys for the act of self-pleasure, then you might be unfamiliar with what a dildo is. That is unless you watch early seasons of South Park and various films of the pornographic variety. Fear not, for Jack and Jill Adult is much more than an emporium of goods for the discriminating adult, we believe in educating the masses on all matters of the flesh, pleasure, pain, and everywhere in between. So, if you’ve ever been curious about what the dildo is and what its proper uses are, you’ve come to the right place. And yes, we mean that in both ways.

Humble Beginnings

The storied history of our phallic-shaped friend is not one that begins in modern times. No, the story of the dildo stretches back thousands and thousands of years. While the exact origin of the masturbatory device is still unknown, a recent archaeological find in Germany found a siltstone phallus dating back upwards of 30,000 years ago. While it might be hard to think of sexuality in terms of prehistory, it’s always been a part of human evolution and the experience that accompanies it.

During the excavation of Pompeii, several phalluses were found, carved upon walls, and murals depicting the object were quite commonplace. This is not a surprise to historians and experts of Greco-Roman history. The phallus didn’t have the stigma or taboo ever associated with it, and a depiction of an erection was considered by many to be a sign of good luck and fertility. Finding one displayed in such a public manner would be contentious today, and these findings speak to the puritanical mindset that evolved as civilization expanded.

Dildo: A Definition 

Now that the brief history lesson has concluded, we’re now able to provide a proper definition. In short, a dildo is a phallic-shaped object that can either have a void-less shape, or a cylindrical likeness with little to no detail. However, some people aren’t fans of the abstract in their art, and descriptiveness is needed to have a more intimate meeting. To this end, dildos can have great detail, including the head, shaft, and testicles being made to look as life-like as humanly possible. 

Purpose

A popular definition and one that’s most associated with the dildo is that it’s a tool for self-love. Or, if you prefer, we can be more direct in our phrasing, and it’s an item used for masturbation. However, this is only part of the equation. Yes, using the dildo in “she-bopping” (or masturbation if you prefer). However, like most toys that are used for any form of foreplay or intercourse, the dildo can be used by partners of either sex. The object is not exclusive to one type of activity or gender. While its most common use is vaginal, the dildo can be used for anal penetration as well.

The main point we’re making is that it’s used for pleasure. And like most forms of art or theater, the best uses are entirely subjective.

What Are They Made From? 

Much like the many uses that dildos can be utilized for, the material made to construct these pleasurable objects can vary. The most common material used is silicone or plastic. However, some people prefer their phalluses made from materials such as metal or glass. However, you take it is also subjective, just like how you prefer to use it. 

What’s the Difference Between Dildos and Vibrators?

This question is two-tiered, similar to a two-headed…you know. The short answer to this question is that dildos are objects made to remain stiff and erect, and are usually made entirely up of a single compound, while vibrators are made from mechanics and elicit vibrations. But, to answer this inquiry with slightly more depth…and yes, we intend that pun, here we go…

A dildo’s primary function is to simulate intercourse, be it vaginal or anal. And while a dildo has a variety of functions and uses, a vibrator is usually strictly used to stimulate the female clitoris and g-spot. Now, there are some dildos that elicit their own vibrations, so the definition isn’t always so cut and dry. Vibrators are primarily used for external use. 

Misconceptions of These Statuesque Erections

Just like anything else that we encounter in this world on a day-to-day basis, the dildo has some misconceptions about it that have found their way into the ever-widening lexicon of popular culture. Let us dispel them the best we can…

The biggest misconception is that a female who uses one will grow tired of, or is intent on replacing their partner. This couldn’t be further from the truth. Any masturbatory act is never meant to replace the importance of human interaction and the intimacy that comes from a partnership. The person who came up with this most likely has some issues they had to work out. 

The second biggest misconception is that they’re painful. Again, this is false to a point. Like many other things, dildo use depends heavily upon the person who uses it. Know your limitations and be sure to use a decent amount of lube to avoid any pain that might subside from penetration.

Clean After Use 

Let’s be honest—after any sexual activity, we have the need to clean ourselves up. Dildos are no exception. While there’s no definitive guide for cleanliness, it’s best that they get cleaned after every use, especially if you have multiple partners and plan on using it in multiple locations on yourself or others. This is a hygienic necessity that shouldn’t be ignored in any way. 

Most Importantly…

Enjoy yourself!
