Is there a big difference between a dildo that is 1 1/2 inches in diameter compared to one that is 1 5/8 inches in diameter? Thanks

It's probably too small of a difference to notice. But what it's made of will make a big difference. For example, 1 1/2 inches of silicone feels smaller than the same size in glass or metal.

Why are you making me do math LOL

I think the 1 5/8 is a smidge thicker

It's an 1/8th of an inch difference (1-1/2" = 1-4/8" < 1-5/8"). It's a very small difference and probably not noticeable to most people, but as Nume said, it also depends on the material. You probably couldn't feel the difference in silicone but glass could feel the teensy bit larger to some people.

Is 1 5/8" considered an average sized dildo? I don't want to get something too big or too small for my wife.
Thanks again.

A good bet would be to get something the same size as you or slightly bigger/smaller.

It is pretty girthy. As Dwtim said, a very slight difference of you. And take materials into consideration. Materials with no give feel bigger than what they are when inserted.

For some - small differences can mean a lot. If you're use to 2" toys - you're not likely to notice much difference between a 1.5" & 1.625" toy. But if you're accustom to 1" or 1.25" toys - you may very well notice the difference.

One way to define girth is circumference which is defined as Pi*D where Pi is approximately 3.1415". So a 1.5" D toy has a circumference of 4.71" whereas a 1.625" D toy has a circumference of 5.1" or 0.4" more 'girth' - that equates to about 8.3% greater girth.

Science aside - use what you are comfortable with - some days you may go for something smaller - other days you may crave a 'fuller' feeling and pick out a larger toy.

My wife started with 1.25" toys - but now 1.5" is on the small side. Her average is 1.625"-1.75" with 2" for that full-feeling.

In short: every inch of added diameter requires that the recieving orifice open up about 3-1/8" (the circumference is what counts here). 1.25"-1.5" is the "standard" range for most toys.

It's not that big a difference, depending on the material, and where you are inserting it, of course.

As Gunsmoke pointed out, that would be a difference of .4" in girth. That can be noticed, but in that specific size range, it the larger one should not cause any discomfort. The difference between the two is not drastic.

As a side note, when a woman gets off on feeling "full", that is a major turn-on for me!

Thanks for all the replies. I have a question about the 02 Adam by Tantus. Does the curve make a real difference in comparison to a more straight dildo? I am trying to decide between an O2 Adam or the original by Doc Johnson.

By and large the curve is useful for a small to medium girth vibe or dildo. However, if there is enough girth, you will likely get g-spot stimulation from a larger toy. For my wife if it's less than 1.75" dia the curve is useful - if it's larger, straight will work - hope that helps.
