The Dodil

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

FAQ - Product & Technical

What is the Dodil?

The Dodil is a completely new invention in the world of adult toys. With it you can create your own custom dildo, repeatedly.

By having a body-safe silicone layer covering a heat sensitive core it can be heated and become moldable. When cooled it stays in the shape you have made. And to make a new design you simply reheat and repeat the process.

Use it as a g-spot massager or thruster, or make a bend, bulges, ripples or whatever you like - with every new shape you make - there is a world of sensations to explore.

Is the Dodil safe to use?

The Dodil is coated with an exterior layer of high quality medical grade liquid silicone which is completely body-safe.

Also the inside of the Dodil is 100% non-toxic and body-safe. The core thermoplastic has since long been used in surgery and internal medicine.

What is the firmness of the Dodil, i.e soft/hard?

The Dodil outmatches any other dildo in flexibility once in a moldable state, making practically any internal spots within reach.

In its rigid state the Dodil is hard, like a glass dildo with a thin, yet soft and smooth, silicone cover.

A hard dildo comes with a lot of extras a soft dildo can not match, such as:

Gives more of a "filling feel"

Easier to maneuver and pin-point

Texture, like bumps and ridges, are easier felt

 

Does the Dodil come with a vibrator?

The Dodil is off-line and non-powered but at the same time extremely hi-tech and innovative thanks to the awesome power of transformation.

Even without a motor it is possible to, in your hands, design it to the world's best personal massager, making that internal orgasm within reach.

Is the Dodil harness compatible?

No, at least not in this version. We have such a feature on the "wish-list" along with some more stuff. Stay tuned.

Where is the Dodil from?

We are a Swedish company founded on friendship and a great idea. We have offices, workshop and a warehouse in Sweden as well as an office in Cologne, Germany.

The Dodil was invented by our COO and head engineer Richard Almgren during the fall of 2016.

In October 2017, after almost a year of enhancing and developing the Dodil, we launched our very first product - the Dodil (dildo).

You can read more about us and our story here.

How is the Dodil biodegradable?

About 90% of the dildo (weight) is made out of a thermoplastic also known to be in the group of bio-plastics.

The plastic does not release any micro-plastics 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 carbon dioxide, water and organic (carbon based) mulch.

The plastic will not biodegrade as long as it is covered by the silicone layer.

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.
