What shape is your pleasure?

Just as much as there is fun, excitement and anticipation in creating your own dildo there are different types of designs, which all have their advantage. Or simply put - in every new creation there is a new sensation

1.       Heat the Dodil.
A:  Heat the dildo for 30 minutes in hot water to make it completely moldable. Let it bathe in our thermos (included in the complete kit) or in a pot or pan at low temperature.

B:  Heated for half that time, 15 minutes, in hot water will make about 50% of the outer section of the dildo become soft (as it heats from outside and in). 

2.       Shape it using your hands.
You have about 10 minutes. Knead or squeeze the Dodil. Zap it with cold water and have the whole dildo set (become rigid), or splash a section to still keep part of the dildo moldable.

3.       Bind it using the included string.
Tie the string either in the top or at the handle and turn the Dodil to create create ripples, bulges and more. Again, finish with a quick rinse or dip it in cold water.  


Adding texture to an existing design:

Make your own dildo creation with a little more texture after nailing that perfect bend or length. This trick works for any dildo design.

  1. If it isn't already, let your design cool off entirely. Leaving the dildo in cold water (~10 minutes) until it sets is the quickest way.
  2. Heat the dildo again for ~5 minutes. This will make the outer section become moldable
  3. Add the texture you want. Make a rippled dildo using the string or tilt the head or add bumps using your hands.

Working with the string (or cord)

Our string is an excellent aid when you want to make your own dildo with texture like ripples, bulbs and bumps. Our previous version of the string was experienced to be a bit slippery, but as we changed it, it is now easier then ever.

  1. Simply tie or wrap the string a few laps around the tip or the handle.

  2. Spin the Dodil instead of trying to work the string, this will give you a better control of the distance and depth.

  3. Finish off by tying or wrapping any excess string where you want to finish.

Go for several ripples or just make a large bulbous head. As you like it.

FAQ - Shaping & Design

How does the dildo become moldable?

By putting the Dodil in hot water either using our thermos (bought as a complete kit) or a similar vessel, or by letting it simmer in a saucepan or pot, it takes about 30 minutes for the dildo to become fully moldable.

But you don't necessarily need it "fully" moldable to add a ripple, bulge or change the shape of the head. 15 minutes, half of that time, makes about 50% of the dodil moldable (from the outside and in).

NOTE: The reactive temperature needs to be above 160 degrees Fahrenheit/70 degrees Celsius for the Dodil to become moldable. 

How does the Dodil "stay in shape"?

After the dildo is heated and is moldable you have about 10-15 minutes before it starts to cool down and set. But, by rinsing or dipping it into cold water it will become rigid within just 1-2 minutes.

By such, you can make a design in under 5 minutes.

If the dildo starts to set and become hard - stop shaping and reheat it if you need. 

How long time does it take to make your own dildo?

The process to make your own dildo is to simply heat the Dodil in hot water, shape it and then cool it to become hard again. This process varies in time (minimum 20 minutes, maximum 50 minutes), depending on what you want to do.


DETAILED TIME TABLE

Heating to become completely moldable (to the core): up to 30 minutes

Heating to become partially moldable (leaving a curve or bend intact): 10-15 minutes

Moldable state before it cools: ~10-15 minutes

Recommended cooling under or in cold water: ~1-2 minutes

Note: All it takes is 3-5 minutes in hot water to make the Dodil moldable again, this is if you immediately after cooling it down should feel that the result is not what you wanted. 

Is it hard to make your own dildo?

Most of our customers and reviewers have nailed the perfect dildo in 1-3 tries.

Most importantly, if you are a beginner in what size and design you want in a dildo, you might want to experiment some. The Dodil is made to be playful and is a way to explore and try different creations until you find what works best for you. 

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

Relax, you can take a steaming hot bath with the dodil since the reactive temperature for the inside thermoplastic to 'melt' is about ~70 degrees Celsius or ~160 degrees Fahrenheit.

No matter how hot you are, you won't melt it.

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 does not have a flared base or scrotum and if you anyway decide 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 dildo for it to not get sucked in. 

Another precaution that can be done 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 outside (not inserted). Should there be an accident you will at least have a chance of pulling it out by tugging the string.

The Dodil can be adapted to some extent for anal play, but if you're not 100% sure, just don't use it as an anal toy.

Is there a risk of breaking the Dodil?

If you use and take care of your dildo 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 dildo in a solid state will not break it, you could however damage the silicone cover, so just don't.

We also recommend using the included cord for a smooth experience. Read the instructions about what to think of while shaping (basically it's common sense).

Is there a risk of damaging the silicone?

The covering layer of silicone is very flexible and durable. However, there are some limitations and common sense to how to treat the Dodil. 

Do not stretch or pull the silicone with force. And do not hit or drag the dildo against anything with a hard or sharp edge. And finally, should the dildo start to turn hard before you are done shaping, simply stop and reheat it for a moment (2-3 minutes) to get it moldable again.

FAQ - Cleaning & Care

What lubricant should I use?

As the Dodil is made of silicone, any sex toy lubricant works. 

How can I clean the Dodil?

After use you can clean it off with soap and water. 

Remember, every time you heat the Dodil to make a new dildo design you automatically sterilize it.

How can I store the Dodil?

If you have the complete kit with the thermos flask it makes an excellent house for the Dodil. Longer or quirky designs might however not fit, but just rest the lid on top.

Otherwise we recommend a dry and cool place. And it can be stored with other silicone dildos, since it's... a silicone dildo.

Can the Dodil be damaged?

Yes. As any other silicone dildo a small rip or tear will slowly grow and thus compromise the dildo. So keep it away from fingernails, cat claws, bird talons and other sharp or hard edges.

And, don't worry. If your Dodil breaks, just e-mail us at [email protected] and we will help you out.
