Beginner Dildo Recommendations? (Silicone/Glass)

ineedscissors61 ineedscissors61
Hello!

I'm pretty interested in getting a dildo for the first time, but am not quite sure where to start. Here are a few things I do know though:

*I'd prefer it to be in silicone or glass

*I like smooth textures (ridges/bumps feel "off" to me)

*since it's my first one, I'd prefer it to be under $50

*will be used vaginally only

Annnd that's all, I think! Recommend away!

My first dildo was the Silk Small. 100% silicone, perfectly smooth, and small enough that just about anyone could handle it. It also comes in Medium and Large if you're already aware of what size you'd like. Another popular silicone one is the Ella, though it does have some very mild texture (a slight ridge on top of the thrusting end) and produces more drag than the Silks. As for glass, my first glass toy (and one of my favorite toys overall) was the Bent Graduate. Like the Ella, one end is for G-spotting while the other is for thrusting. If thrusting is your priority (as opposed to G-spotting) and you don't like texture, you might want to skip that one for now since the thrusting end is bumpy. All of these are under $50 (the Ella and Silk Large are $40).

Hope I at least gave you some ideas. Happy shopping!

My first silicone dildo was the Vibrating Leo from Vixen Creations. It is very simple, although I found it a bit too long for me and the large head to sometimes catch on my pubic bone (but that can be overcome with positioning). As for other smooth silicone dildos, I also like the Tantus O2 Cush (very soft!), Vamp, and Silk Large. These are all kind of "multi purpose", for pretty much any kind of thrusting or g-spotting you can imagine. The Lelo Ella, I have found as previously mentioned, is good for g-spotting, but not so much for thrusting.

As far as glass toys, a lot of them are not without at least a bump at one end. You might look into ceramic as well, although there are not many brands who manufacture them right now. I really like the Icicles No. 8 for it's subtlety, though.

Although it's over your price range, you may want to check out the Alumina Flow by Tantus sometime.

The Lelo Ella was my first dildo ever, and I still love it! One end is a fantastic G-spotter, and the other a regular thrusting end. I think it's a great beginner dildo because it gives you experience with both types of stimulation. I think it is smooth and not textured, and very comfortable to use.

I second the Ella. It is silicone (and Lelo) and smooth. Plus, you can use either end which is a plus over other silicone dildos that will have a base.

Here are a couple of nice glass ones for a beginner:

My first glass dildo was Midnight Twist. The older version had a fair bit of texture, but the new version they produce now is pretty much completely smooth. It has a few very small nubs on one side, but they are not bothersome in use. (And I say this as a person who HATES nubs on glass toys, I mean HATES!)

Another nice glass dildo is Gold Laced G. It has some slight texture to it, but again it isn't bothersome at all, especially with it being so slim. And the handle is AMAZING for thrusting.

In silicone, my absolute favorite dildo is the Tantus Boss, which is the exact same toy as the Tantus VIP, the VIP just comes in different colors. (But I really liked it in black.) It's not as small as some of the others, but that curve is GREAT for g-spotting, and it doesn't have any texture. The VIP is just barely out of your price range, but if you can gather some points together, you should be able to cover the difference.

The other options that have been listed are also wonderful! Hope you find one you like!

I made you a comparison list of some of the toys that should meet your criteria. Hopefully it will help some, at least you'll be able to see plenty of the options available to you!

The first toy that came to my mind when I read your prerequisites was the Lelo Ella. I can't say much more about it than the other folks here have already said. If you want to get a good idea of what it actually looks like, go to the Lelo Ella page on Eden, and under the picture, click on "View actual product size".

I would highly recommend the Ella. I didn't get it until much later but it's one of my favourites.

I'd say the Silk, the Ella, or one of the many smooth glass wands we've got. Very nice.

Wow,thank you all so much! I think I'll start out with a silicone one (possibly the ella), but I'll keep tabs on all of the ones mentioned for future use.
