the dodil

Technical FAQ

Is the dodil-dildo safe to use?

The dodil is coated with an external layer of high quality liquid silicone which is completely body-safe. Also the inside of the dodil is 100% non-toxic and body-safe. The core material has since long been used in for example internal medicine.

How is the dodil bio-degradable?

About 90% of the dodil (weight) is made out of a thermoplastic also known to be in the group of bio-plastics. The plastic does not release any microplastics upon decay and it will biodegrade with various speed depending on the surroundings. In absolute soil conditions the plastic will biodegrade in only 18 weeks leaving nothing but carbondioxide, water and organic (carbon based) mulch. The plastic will not biodegrade as long as it is covered by the silicone layer.

What should I think of during use and care?

For cleaning we recommend soap and water or an adult toy sanitizer, but remember - every time you heat up the dodil it gets automatically sterilized.

For use we recommend using a lubricant that is oil-free. And since we do not know what additives have been used in (and can not test them all) different silicone lubricants on the market, we recommend using water-based or a hybrid lubricant.

Please read and follow our instructions when it comes to the shaping.

Design FAQ

Is it hard to design your dildo?

Once heated the dodil is very flexible and soft. That does however settle after a while as it cools down and becomes more rigid. Which also makes it stay in shape easier.

Cooling the dodil under cold water (like the cold water tap) will make the dodil become harder even faster - which is something we recommend once you have decided on the shape you want to make.

For more in depth practice we recommend reading and following the instructions for the best results.

Is there a risk of the dodil 'melting' when I use it?

Relax, you can take a steaming hot bath with the dodil since the reactive temperature for the dodil to 'melt' is about 70 degrees Celsius or 158 degrees Fahrenheit.

Is the dodil safe for anal play?

To be deemed safe for anal play a sex toy should always have a 'stopper'. In other dildo-designs that stopper usually comes as a flared base or with an added scrotum.

Since the dodil-dildo does not have a flared base or scrotum and if you want to use it for anal play it is highly recommended to make a bend to the base that has at least a 45 degree angle or an enough clamped section of the dodil for the dildo not to get sucked in.

Another tips is to use the included cord and tie it around the base (wrap it and tie it hard so it doesn't slip off) and leave a few inches of loose string. Should there be an accident you can always pull it back out by tugging the string.

Is there a risk of breaking the dodil?

If you use and take care of your dodil as stated in the included manual, here on the website or through any of our videos, you will be fine.

Applying brute force to try and deform the dodil in a solid state will not break the dodil, you could however damage the silicone, so just don't.

Is there a risk of damaging the silicone?

The silicone have the ability to stretch up to 900% of its original shape and can not break from shaping the product using your hands or soft objects.

Reading our instructions will let you know how to treat your dodil.
