DIMENSIONS & BUILD

There are many aspects of dildo sizes, dimensions and build. In this section we cover them all.

Dildo sizes, dimensions and build.

Exploring the obtainable jungle of dildos can certainly be a quite intimidating experience, as there apparently are a lot of different dildo-sizes in stock.

And to no surprise, the average dildo size is much bigger than the average penis. 21% longer in fact. But there is a lot less difference when comparing the circumference.

Now, you sure might wonder whether it is the buyers or the industry which are obsessing about dildos larger than a penis. Well, one obvious detail is that the dildo needs to have some extra length or space for a maneuvering hand. And is it that, in lack of much other competitive advantages, the industry goes for size.

Still, as much as some people are fascinated by big butts or boobs, for others there is a fascination in large dildos (and penises).

Ultimately, there are no best dildo size nor girth. It all comes down to personal preferences and what facts to consider before you get yourself the best dildo money can buy.

Full Or Insertable Length?

The length of a penis is measured from the pubic bone to the tip of the gland, simply because you cannot insert more of it than so. 

The length of a dildo can be a little more confusing than that. There is most often an advertised length which does not necessarily correspond with how much of the dildo you can insert. 

Basically, there are two measurements.

Full or overall length. Full length is usually the measure shown or labeled in an ad or on the packaging. 

Insertable or usable length.
The usable length in a dildo is the full length, not counting the base, scrotum or handle as they steal a few inches.

Length is only one dimension to a dildo, as you have to keep the design in mind, in combination with texture and girth.

One important thing to remember is that it is easier to hold back a long dildo than adding length to one which is too short. But a too long dildo (over 7 inches) can also risk hitting your cervix.

Dildo Girth Or Width?

There are bountiful of dildo sizes for people who enjoy, or have trained themselves to get satisfaction from, using a dildo with more girth.

Others prefer a thin dildo to pinpoint a specific spot like the g-spot, just as some find pleasure from texture, like ripples or bulges with differing girth.

However, dildos that are rigid can have a ”thicker” and more ”fulfilling” feel to them than the softer ones. And while being rigid they are also easier to control and are therefore more suitable for both thrusting and spot-stimulation.

And, to keep in mind, softer dildos are better when going really large. The really floppy ones are a lot more difficult to control other than when used for riding or "bouncing" against.

Circumference On A Dildo

Circumference is the full lap around a tube or circular object. And most common is to measure a dildo at the section which holds the maximum circumference.

Measure yourself

When you are about to buy a dildo and you are unsure what will work, you need to first try what might be comfortable.

This is easiest done by testing with your fingers inside you and find what is most pleasurable. Then you measure the circumference around your fingers with a measuring tape.

Tips: If you don’t have a measuring tape you can cut a strip of paper and wrap around your fingers, make a mark where it does a full lap, unfold it and measure with a ruler.

Width Or Diameter On A Dildo

Sometimes you will come across shops or manufacturers describing the girth by using diameter or width (also translates to the widest part or section of a dildo). Simply use the same trick, testing with your fingers and measure, but this time divide the result with Pi = ~3.14.

The Weight Of A Dildo And Its Impact

A commonly overlooked statistic for a dildo is the actual weight. A large rubber dildo can be heavy on your wrists and therefore exhausting to use for thrusting. Larger dildos are by such best for bouncing or riding on, usually attached to the floor or a wall. However, rigid or hard dildos usually comes with a lower weight and by that easier to control and comes easier on your wrist.

The Base Of A Dildo

The base of a dildo can differ from being either extremely distinct to non-existent. There are mainly four types of a base in a dildo. As presented below:

In Conlusion - Dildo Sizes, Dimensions And Build

Length:

  • Full length is not necessarily the same as the insertable length
  • Too long dildos (+ 7 inches) can hit your cervix but a too short dildo can not become longer, so a slightly longer dildo is better if you are unsure

Girth:

  • Can be either circumference (the full lap around) or width (diameter)
  • Testing out a comfortable girth can be done by inserting your fingers and measuring around them

Weight:

  • Big dildos hold their limits in general as they are quite heavy on your wrist when seeking thrust and g-/a-spot stimulation

Base: 

  • Scrotum and/or flared bases are safe for anal and can mostly be used in a harness
  • Straight dildos (that cannot be bent) needs to have a separate stopper, like a cock ring, to not get sucked up into your rectum
