I used to wonder what the point of a dildo was. My thinking was: if vibes existed, surely there was no reason for dildos, right?
But they seemed pretty popular, and I got curious, so I ordered my first dildo (the teeny-tiny Silk Small) with my first order from Eden. It was nice, but nothing spectacular. The Ella boosted my confidence with size, and the Silk Medium was the first dildo I really enjoyed without any complaints. Then the Bent Graduate rocked my world, and it's just kind of gone from there. My favorite toy right now (which I simply can't
stop gushing about) is the VixSkin Tex.
I've found that internal vibrations, while nice, simply aren't something I go crazy over. A toy's shape, the feel of the material, and the sensations of thrusting, rocking or grinding are much more important. Motorized parts can alter the way a toy feels or moves, hindering some of these aspects. It's also nice to know that for some of my toys, I'll never have to worry about batteries or charging, waterproofing, loose parts, or anything like that. Most of my dildos should last a lifetime if I take care of them, while even the best vibes will wear out eventually.
