Curved or Straight? Why Dildo Shape Matters

 My First Blush Posted by My First Blush on


It’s quite common for everyone’s first sex toy to be a dildo. Whether you’re a male or a female, a dildo can provide hours of pleasure and entertainment, that’s for sure. And the good thing is that there’s so much variety! When it comes to this type of toy, there are a multitude of different options from which to choose.

If you’re just a beginner, you may want to check out a smaller dildo before you work your way up to the large dildos. And then, when you begin to look at other features, you may find that you’re interested in realistic dildos, so you can feel like you’re working with the real thing, or you may like the cool, sleek feel of a glass dildo. And this is when you’re just getting started! Like we said, there are all sorts of different types of toys that you can work into your bedroom “fun time” routine. When you’re ready, you can even go with a product that you can suction to a mirror or the wall, so that you can go completely hands-free, how about a double-ended dildo? Are you seeing the possibilities?

But one thing that is of great importance when you’re selecting your new plaything is the shape. That might sound weird to say, but what we mean is the curve of the product. In straight talk, do you want your special toy to be curved or straight? Some may think that it’s a matter of preference, but when it comes down to it, there are quite a few different reasons as to why it’s best to go with one type or another. First, before you even start to look, think about the reason why you want to use a dildo? Are you a male or a female? What kind of action are you hoping to get into? Let’s take a look!


The Age-Old Question

Of course, whenever you’re selecting a sex toy, most people are drawn to what turns them on. For example, do you like the color pink? Do you think it’s sexy? Do you like a toy that feels like the real thing, or are you going for something completely different?

When it comes down to selection, most consumers do one of two things:

  • They go with something that they know - People want something that is familiar, that makes them feel safe and comfortable. Plus, if a particular size or shape is working for you, then… well, we’ve all heard that saying about not fixing something that isn’t broken.
  • They go with the exact opposite of what they know - If you’re used to something a little on the small side in real life, then you may be yearning for a little more size. If you want to get deep into role play and fantasy, then you might want to select something that’s a little out there, so you can really step away from reality.

The bottom line is that most people know what they want, and they know what turns them on - or they know about “the idea” of what turns them on. But sometimes, there’s also a physical reason why one type of better for certain situations than the other.


Curved

As you might have already imagined, a curved plaything is designed in such a way that it will reach certain parts of the body a little better than something that is straight. In other words, if having a mind-blowing orgasm is the purpose of using this toy, then you’re probably going to prefer a curved one.

Real Skin WhoppersA curved toy can really hit that G-spot or the male prostate, which can create all sorts of sensations. So, it’s definitely a preferred playmate for both males and females. The curve can come in different places, but it’s usually right at the tip or it may curve in a natural line around the middle of the toy. Many women use a smaller dildo curved at the tip to hit the clitoris, too, especially if it comes equipped with a little vibe action as well.

If you’re feeling a little overwhelmed with all of your options, then here are a few suggestions to help you get started.

Straight

Since a curved toy may be best used for a climax, it may have you wondering why exactly people would prefer a straight dildo. Well, of course, a person can certainly orgasm with this type of product, too, but it can best serve another purpose. Have you been hoping to take in larger toy, or perhaps a body part, like a fist, or a penis for anal penetration? A straight toy is great for this type of “size training.”

You can even start off with a smaller product and begin working your way up to a larger size, until you hit that plateau that you’re looking for at the time.

One thing is certain: There are all sorts of toys from which to choose.
