Looks wise:

Dildos are traditionally formed to resemble an erect penis in size, shape and appearance.

Vibrators come in a variety of different shapes and sizes including vibrating bullets, eggs, pocket rockets, magic wands, vibrating cock rings and the oh so famous Rabbit Vibrator. Think Sex and the City ladies and you’ll know exactly what I mean!

Dildos can be used for vaginal or anal penetration. Dildos can also be attached to harnesses, used for erogenous massage, g-spot stimulation and double ended penetration with partners.

Vibrators are battery-operated or electrically powered devices that vibrate. Initially created for massage, vibrators now offer various internal and external functionalities due to their shape and size. Small bullet style vibrators are best for direct clitoral stimulation, whilst love eggs offer internal pleasure. But hey why stop there when you can be satisfied simultaneously by the likes of the Rabbit vibrator which offers clitoral stimulation through the bunny ears and internal massage and penetration through the shaft.

Dildos come in various materials depending on the type of intimate feeling you wish to achieve. If you’re looking for a realistic dildo it will most likely be made from jelly rubber which looks and feels very similar to the real thing. Other materials include glass, silicone or metal which offer different sensations and experiences.

Vibrators come in various different materials although the most common is silicone as it is extremely soft and easy to look after.

Top Tips and information:

  • 1. When choosing a vibrator or dildo think about what kind of stimulation you want. E.g. If you want to work your G-Spot then you may want a longer phallic-shaped toy with a curved tip. Likewise if you’re choosing a vibrator consider things such as the intensity of sensations, noise levels etc…
  • 2. Read the instructions before using.
  • 3. Only use a flared based dildo for anal play.
  • 4. Clean your sex toys thoroughly with anti-bacterial cleaner or hot soapy water.
  • 5. Avoid materials that may give you an allergic reaction e.g. latex or jelly rubber.
  • 6. If you plan to share your sex toy or are using a porous material we recommend you use a condom.

Whilst there are a lot of similarities in size and shape with these sex toys, it will ultimately come down to your own personal preference as to which toy you prefer as all women require different types of sexual stimulation. For some the vibrator is the best way to reach climax whilst others prefer the intimacy of penetration in a dildo.
