The Best Dildos in 2024 [Anal, Realistic, Thrusting, Silicone] Sex Toys For Men & Women

By: JC Ways

The best dildos are almost as old as the natural penis itself. One of the first dildos, the Hohle Fels Phallus, was carved from stone and put to use 28,000 years ago.

Since those times, dildos have only gotten better and better.  Today there’s thousands of styles and shapes to choose from, so many that it can get a bit overwhelming.

So in this guide, I’ve rounded up the best dildos humanity has come up with so far. From standard silicone dildos to anal dildos, realistic penis dildos, and even ejaculating dildos… we’ve got A LOT to cover.

Let’s get to it!

The Best Dildos in 2024, Reviewed

Looking for some more detailed roundups of the best dildos? Here we look at 10 of our favourite dildos for men, women, and everyone in between.

Let’s get to it!

NJOY Pure Wand - Best Dildo For Any Gender

Our Lord and Saviour

Before I go to buy a sex toy, I always like to check the customer reviews on websites like LoveHoney. My favorite customer review for this toy had the headline “Have you heard of our lord and saviour the Pure Wand?” and you know what? They’re onto something there.

Njoy Purewand

If you’re a sex toy aficionado, the NJOY Pure Wand is hailed as one of the best dildos ever made. The one dildo to rule them all. 

This metal dildo is made from high-grade stainless steel and comes in a curved shape with 2 bulbous ends of different sizes. There are 8 inches of insertable length in total, with the widest point of the Pure Wand measuring 5.5 inches in circumference.  The unusual shape of the Pure Wand is designed to reach your G-spot or your P-spot (i.e. prostate), providing intense body-shaking orgasms like you’ve never felt before!

Trust us. This is hailed as one of the best dildos of all time for a reason. It’s even in our Sex Toy Collective logo.

Pros:

  • Unisex, easy to clean, intense orgasms for men and women, G-spot stimulation

Cons:

  • Expensive (but worth it!)

RealCock2 - Most Realistic Dildo Ever

The most realistic dildo ever created

With a very steep price tag, the RealCock2 is out of most people’s price ranges, but it makes a great addition to a professional sex dungeon, porn studio, bathhouse, or the boudoir of someone with Christian Grey-level wealth.

This astounding creation uses 3 layers of silicone and special Sil-Slide™ technology to make a realistic-looking and realistic-feeling dildo which has soft, slidey skin.

It’s almost a little scary, to be honest!

RealCock2 Review

I think the detailing on the dildo itself is impressive – there are the throbbing veins that you find on a lot of cock-like dildos, but also smaller veins and blemishes on the skin and balls that really give it that realistic feel.

They’ve even gone to the effort of creating realistic balls which “float” and can be played with like real balls.

I mean, if you’re going to make a realistic cock, you might as well make realistic balls too.

Pros:

  • Incredibly realistic feel, 8.5-inch length, different skin tones available, sex machine and strap-on ready

Cons:

  • Very expensive

LoveHoney LifeLike Lover - Cheap Realistic Dildo

A good standard silicone dildo.

Sometimes you just want a cheap, decent dildo. No tricks, no frills, no fuss. If this is you, the 6-inch Lifelike Lover from LoveHoney would like to say hello.

Complete with a suction cup base, thick shaft, vein/glans details and suction cup base… this is just an exceptionally good (and affordable!) silicone realistic dildo.

I am honestly struggling to come up with any major downsides for this one. If you want a decent dildo that won’t break the bank… get on it!

Literally.

6-inch Lifelike Lover Realistic Silicone Dildo

 

Pros:

  • Cheap, solid silicone dildos, realistic design, vein details, flared base, suction cup

Cons:

  • Too small for some

Lovense Hush 2 - Best Anal Dildo Vibrator

If you’re looking for one of the best anal dildos that can also work as a remote control butt plug vibrator… allow me to introduce you to the Lovense Hush 2.

Available in 4 different sizes depending on your experience, the Lovense Hush 2 has a flared base, so it’s super safe for anal play.

Controlled via the Lovense Remote app, this unique anal sex toy connects to your phone (or your partner’s phone) via Bluetooth, leading to some VERY interesting scenarios in the bedroom or in public.

Let your imagination run wild!

Pros:

  • 4 different sizes, anal dildo with flared base, remote control vibrator, phone app control

Cons:

  • Pricey

Lovense Sex Machine - Best Thrusting Dildo

300 strokes per minute of pure pleasure

Okay, so the Lovense Sex Machine is FAR from cheap, but if you’ve got cash to splash and you like the idea of an automatically thrusting dildo, this is the crème de la crème of the Best Sex Machines.

You can angle this baby at multiple different positions, slamming that huge silicone dildo into your quivering pussy or butt at up to 300 strokes per minute.

Imagine pure fucking at that speed for HOURS. It’s bliss. They even include the dildo for free.

Pros:

  • Automatic thrusting dildo, 300 strokes per minute, multiple positions, app control

Cons:

  • VERY expensive

Crystal Twist - Cute Glass Dildo

Almost too beautiful to put inside you!

The Aurora Borealis Crystal Twist dildo is more of a décor piece than a dildo. This unique twisted glass design features a genuine Swarovski crystal element at the tip, the color of which is customizable according to what’s in stock.

One of the best glass dildos on the market, the twisted shape gives your nerve endings some unusual stimulation as it plunges deeper and deeper inside you.

Crystal Twist

I know some of you associate glass with cracking/shattering and think “there’s no way I’m putting glass in my vajeen”, but you needn’t worry.

Like most of the best glass dildos, the Crystal Twist is made from borosilicate glass which has been treated so it’s resistant to thermal shock. Basically, it’s very strong glass and it’ll glide in and out of your vagina like a charm!

Borosilicate glass is actually what Pyrex dishes were made from before Pyrex switched to a cheaper alternative.

Pros:

  • Opulent design, unique twisted glass, genuine Swarovski element

Cons:

  • 5.1-inch insertable length is a bit small

Doc Johnson “Bust It” - Ejaculating Squirting Dildo

If you love cum, you’re in the right place.

If you didn’t know, the best squirting dildos are dildos that have a system that allows you to squirt “cum” through the tip on demand.

The “cum” is usually recommended to be lube, for obvious reasons.

Complete with suction cup and strong silicone construction, the Doc Johnson “Bust It” is a brilliant introduction to ejaculating dildos if you have a bit of a cum fetish!

The testicles also give this dildo a flared base, so it’s safe for anal use!

 

Pros:

  • Silicone, veiny, flared base, ejaculating squirting dildo!

Cons:

  • Takes some practice

Carter Posable Dildo - Great Dildo for Men & Women

Say hello to Mr. Carter!

Although I don’t think the Carter posable dildo is the nicest looking dildo in the world, this toy is made from a special silicone which is designed to be soft and yet firm, helping the user to pose this toy in their favorite position.

This can make for pinpointed G-spot and P-spot stimulation!

Carter Posable Dildo

There are 4 different skin tones available to purchase, as well as a bunch of non-skin colors like “Rose Gold” (although ironically it’s not the color of Rose Gold) and “Seafoam” too.

The material is body-safe and non-porous, so it’s also really hygienic and easy to clean. The Carter posable dildo is ideal for strap-ons and fuck machines, as well as men and women who know exactly what they like up their ass.

It’s girthy, posable, long, and easy to clean… what’s not to love? Just don’t tell Beyoncé you’ve been playing with Mr. Carter.

Pros:

  • Posable, girthy, 7.5 inches of insertable length, flexible yet firm

Cons:

  • Not the most aesthetically pleasing

NJOY Eleven - Big Steel Dildo

11 inches of stainless steel pleasure!

The Njoy Eleven is not a toy to be messed with! This long and heavy stainless steel sex toy weighs in at nearly 3 lbs, making it one of the heaviest dildos I’ve come across. Many reviewers describe the Eleven as feeling like a weapon, and I can see why!

If you’re in the market for a sex toy that can double as a self-defense weapon in your home, look no further. Burglars beware!

Joking aside, this thing comes with 8.5 inches of insertable length and a unique shape which is great for internal stimulation, especially when coupled with some decent water-based or silicone-based lube.

Pros:

  • 8.5 inches of insertable length, stainless steel, comes with leather tote bag

Cons:

  • Quite heavy & expensive

Vixskin Maverick - Best Silicone Dildo

7.5 inches of flexible suction cup fun

On the surface, this looks like your average suction cup dildo, but it’s actually made from 100% platinum silicone which makes it non-porous and body-safe. The material of this dildo means that it warms up and matches your body temperature once it’s inside you, helping to make the experience realistic and comfortable throughout play.

Vixskin Maverick

The non-porous silicone construction of this toy means that you can boil it for 3 minutes to achieve thorough sanitization. If that sounds like a lot of effort, good ol’ soap and water is nearly as good.

With 7.5 inches of insertable length, the Maverick is perfect for size queens who like a nice big cock inside them. The only real downside to this toy is its softness – it can feel like a semi rather than full erection. Personally, I want a raging boner inside me… not a semi. Still, if you prefer a less-rigid realistic dildo then the Maverick is a nice and comfortable sex toy for him or her.

Pros:

  • 7.5 inches of insertable length, flexible silicone, strong suction cup

Cons:

  • Feels more like a semi than a full erection

Finding the ‘Best’ Dildo

When it comes to the shape and size of a dildo, the best one is pretty subjective.  Everyone has slightly different anatomy and preferences, and it can take some experimenting to find your ideal dildo.

However, there are dildos you should definitely avoidDildos made from melted plastic, usually labeled as jelly, TPE, TPR, are considered risky.   They leak toxic chemicals, smell awful, and have a porous surface, so they are tough to clean.  Porous dildos will absorb bacteria, dust, and fecal matter, and get gunky after a few months.

Choosing Your Dildo’s Material – Why Are Silicone Dildos So Good?

Sex toys aren’t regulated in most countries, including the USA, so shady companies can get away with using unsafe dildo materials.  This section will help you learn how to tell the good dildos from the bad.

Jelly Dildos: A Toxic Material to Avoid

Jelly dildos are created by melting plastics like PVC (aka Vinyl) and then mixing in chemicals called plasticizers to make it rubbery.  After the mixture cools, you get a flubbery Jelly material.  You’ll sometimes see these dildos labeled as just PVC.

One common jelly dildo ingredient, Phthalates, is banned in children’s toys because of its toxicity and long term effects.  Because there are no regulations on dildos, some shady companies sell them as “novelties” not intended for internal use, even though that’s clearly what people are buying them for.

 

Jelly Dildo Characteristics

How To Identify a Jelly Dildo

  • Shiny appearance
  • Strong chemical smell
  • Moist, leaves an oily residue on whatever it touches
  • Melts over time, especially in warm temperatures

 

Jelly Disadvantages

Jelly Dildo Disadvantages

  • Can cause chemical burns and rashes
  • Smells bad
  • The surface is porous and harbors bacteria, dust, and dirt.  Impossible to completely clean.
  • Only lasts a few months before tearing, warping, or getting icky with bacteria.
  • Starts to melt in warm temperatures

 

Jelly Advantages (Not much)

Jelly Dildo Advantages

  • Cheap (But there’s other prices you pay- see disadvantages)

I don’t have any Jelly dildos I can recommend with a clear conscious.  This dildo material is shockingly bad in almost every way.  The fumes alone make me feel sick, not to mention the nasty oily grease it leaves on your hands, and in your body.

TPE, Cyberskin, UltraSkyn, and TradeMarked Materials

If you look for dildos on Amazon, you’ll see some labeled as TPE and TPR.

TPE stands for thermoplastic elastomer, and TPR means thermoplastic rubber.  They both mean the exact same thing and can be used to describe the exact same dildos.

Really, TPE/TPR is just a fancy word for a rubber made from a mix of melted plastic and additives.  Almost every rubber dildo that isn’t silicone is a type TPE.  For example, the Jelly dildos I mentioned above fall under the category of TPE.

Can TPE dildos be safe?

It’s possible that some dildos can be made of bio-plastics using organic body-safe plant oils as plasticizers.  However, this is unlikely because of the higher cost.  Even if a TPE mixture is completely body safe, it is still very porous and impossible to clean.

Trademarked dildo materials

You’ll sometimes see materials like ‘Cyberskin’, ‘Ultraskyn’ or ‘U3′.  These are the company’s’ name for their TPE recipies,  all the actual ingredients in their recipies are a secret unless a lab test is done to determine the exact ingredients used.

Using mystery materials is a gamble, since you don’t know what kind of carcinogens the rubber might contain.  Generally a dildo that ‘sweats’ smelly oils is something very dangerous, and should be thrown away.  Toys that don’t melt will still be porous.

The only rubber material you can 100% trust is platinum-cured silicone from a trusted seller.

Silicone: The Best Dildo Material

Silicone is the queen of dildo materials.  It’s soft, it’s easy to clean, it’s non-toxic, and it can be heated to 400 degrees without damage.  It also retains body-heat and feels more flesh-like than any other material.  The most realistic feeling dildos are all silicone, like the RealCock2, the most realistic dildo ever made.

Characteristics of Silicone Dildos

  • Matte, usually not shiny
  • No smell
  • Density and softness can vary greatly

Silicone Dildo Advantages

  • Comes in different amounts of softness
  • Lasts for years
  • Body-safe, Non-toxic
  • Retains body temperature better than other materials
  • Easy to clean, can be 100% sanitized
  • Can be resold once completely cleaned

Silicone Dildo Disadvantages

  • Can be expensive
  • Not compatible with silicone-based lube

Metal Dildos

Polished Stainless Steel is the smoothest feeling dildo material in existence.  It’s a material synonymous with the company Njoy, which only makes metal sex toys.

My all-time favorite sex toy is metal; the stainless steel Njoy Purewand is an omnisexual sex toy, which means it’s designed for both butts and vaginas.

Glass Dildos

Another common dildo material is glass.  They look pretty, and their ultra smooth surface feels amazing.

Putting glass in your holes might seem extreme, but Glass dildos are made from super-strong borosilicate glass, similar to what is used in pyrex glass cookware.  A properly annealed glass dildo can be dropped onto a hard floor and won’t chip or break.

Wooden Dildos

Like glass and metal, wood has a solid and smooth feel to it.  It’s also lighter, which means your arm won’t get as fatigued while using it.

Good wooden dildos, like Nobessence, are encapsulated in finishes that are body-safe, super smooth, and waterproof.  So you don’t have to worry about any unnecessary roughness.

As far as looks go, wood makes for a gorgeous material.  Each one is unique and comes from different kinds of hardwood.

With wooden dildos you will find twisting winding shapes that might otherwise be impossible to make with materials like metal and silicone.

Ceramic

Porcelain and ceramic dildos retain temperature very well.  You can heat them up and they will stay warm for 10 to 20 minutes.

It’s also a body-safe and easy to clean material.

Stone Dildos

Stone dildos are something you can add to your sex toy collection, and your rock collection.

They are made of highly polished granite and super smooth.  One of my favorite companies is Laid, which uses Norwegian black granite in their dildos.

History of the Dildo

In my post on dildo history, I put together this interactive timeline.  You’ll learn about how dildos evolved over millennia.

Where does the word Dildo come from?

While the exact origins are murky, the most likely source is the Italian word ‘dilleto’, which means ‘a woman’s delight’, and the Latin word ‘diliatare’ which means ‘to dilate or open wide'[1].

In the 17th century most dildos in England were imported from Italy, usually illegally.  One noble, John Wilmot, ordered dildos for his sexual society, however they were burned at customs.  In response, he wrote a poem called Signior Dildo, which pokes fun at how English lovers are so lousy, that women have to turn to dildos to be sexually satisfied.

Best Types of Dildo: Going Deeper

To help you find your best dildo matches, it helps to look in a category that sounds appealing.  I have a different guide a few different popular categories.

Most Lifelike Dildos

The most realistic dildos are meant to look and feel like an actual cock.  The RealCock2 (pictured here) uses three layers of silicone for a super lifelike feel, you can even pinch the skin and squeeze the silicone testicles suspended in a silicone scrotum.  The RealCock 2 is expensive as heck though ($500).  You can get some good realistic dildos for about $30 – $60, too. I list a bunch of choices in my guide to the most realistic dildos.

Unrealistic, Non-phallic Dildos

These are the opposite of realistic dildos.  The first non-phallic dildo was the silicone Venus, created in 1977 as a way for the feminist movement to take back the dildo and make it their own.  (Before 1977, all dildos were veiny and penis shaped)

40 years later, there’s dozens of non-phallic shapes to choose from.  From waves, to vegetables, to buddha-shaped dildos, the world of unrealistic dildos is endless.

Colours Wave, a similar shape to the first unrealistic dildo, the Venus

Big and Bad Ass: Best Massive Dildos

It’s amazing what some ass-tronauts can achieve these days.  In this final frontier of dildos, size queens(and kings) conquer monster dildos up to 5 inches wide and 2 feet in length.

Don’t expect to tame a football sized dildo overnight.  It takes years of anal training and stretching to summit an Everest like Patrick the Ogre (shown in the picture).

You don’t have to go that big though. You’ll find plenty of pleasure from the bounty of large dildos in each size range.

In our big dildo guide I list some of the best big guys, sorted by their size and price.

Anal Dildos (for Anal Play)

I also have a guide on anal dildos.  This includes some of the same dildos as the big dildo guide, but includes smaller dildos that are good for anal toy beginners.

I also cover a few tips on how to do anal training.  What kinds of lube to use, how to clean out your rectum, and so on.

To sum it up quickly, anal dildos should ALWAYS have a flared base that prevents them for slipping inside you during anal play.

No one wants a memorable trip to the ER!

Luxury Dildos

Some dildos are priceless works of fine art, shown in museums across the world.

The most expensive is the Pearl Royale, a $1.3 million dollar dildo with diamonds, sapphires, and pearls.  Maybe it’s a bit excessive, but it’s a better use of diamonds than something less fuckable, like a luxury watch.

One of my favorites is the Casanova, only $33,000, it has a Mediterranean style and is an homage to one of Venice’s most iconic lovers.

You can read more in my post about the most expensive dildos.

Immerse Yourself in a World of Fantasy Dildos

Once you immerse yourself in the world of fantasy dildos (or vice versa) you will have an explosion of new creatures to fuck.

There’s dragons, aliens, werewolves, unicorns, ogres, ovipositors, vampires, demons, gryphons, more aliens, and just about every creature you can imagine.

Learn more in my post on the best fantasy dildos.

Best Budget Dildos

Silicone dildos can be expensive to make.  When I make my own the silicone alone costs me $15 for a 6-inch dildo.  Not including all the other materials and tools needed.

You can still find good silicone dildos as cheap as $20, and some glass ones even cheaper.  In my cheap dildos guide I have a list of 20 body-safe dildos under $30.

The Animal Dildo Kingdom

Name an animal, any kind, and its silicone penis is probably somewhere on Etsy.  You’ll find horses, foxes, wolves, deer, elephants, walruses, lions, dolphins, orcas and on.  There are so many sub categories that I made another guide for animal dildos.

A handmade fox dildo from Etsy

Best Hollow Dildos

Before there was Viagra, some men with ED used hollow dildos to satisfy their partners.  These are sometimes called ‘penis extenders’ or ‘cock sheathes’ depending on who you ask.

To use it, one’s cock is inserted into the hollow end and the balls go through another hole in the bottom to keep it from sliding.  Some also have straps to keep things more sturdy.

Hollow dildos like this are the safest and easiest way to increase penis size.  Silicone quickly warms up to body temperature, and stays warm.  And by using special kinds of silicone, they have a fleshy texture.

Colossus VixSkin Dildo (Silicone)

Best Squirting Dildos

With squirting dildos you can cum 24/7. These dildos have internal-tubing and a squeezable bulb.  You can suck up liquid by submerging the tip and squeezing the bulb.  Then jizz to your hearts content.

A good ejaculate to use is Sliquid Silk Lube, which is milky and has a viscous feel.  You can also use water, which squirts a long ways (and is a lot cheaper than lube.)

In my squirting dildo guide, I cover some of the best ejaculating dildos, and their many uses:

  • Artificial insemination
  • Pairing with the best strap-ons for a sexy finale
  • Lube Shooter
  • Watering your plants, of course

The Dildo-Sculptor Tool: Make Your Own Dildos

If you don’t want to buy a dildo you can save money by making your own dildos from scratch.  It’s a lot of fun and not as difficult as people think.  You just need a model, some silicone, and a few tools for putting it all together.

To help create the model, I made a tool that lets you sculpt your own dildos.  You can try it out here.
