Maybe it's because there's no reason to restrict them to the usual dimensions of real life. If there's a demand for big toys (and clearly there is) why not make them?

Personally, I like variety. While I wouldn't really want to date a guy who had a penis as big as my biggest dildo, it sure is fun to play with something that size every once and a while.

Not all toys are unreasonably large, either. One of my all-time favorite dildos is the O2 Mark, and it happens to be the same size of my boyfriend's penis.
Lots of toys are made with smaller-than-average dimensions as well. It's a whole spectrum, you can't just focus on the huge toys and think that's all there is out there. Some people like big ones, some people don't, and there's no reason not to indulge the desire for a pornstar-sized wang now and again if one falls into the former category.

They don't need to be natural size or natural shape, so the imagination is free to roam. If you want to try something absurdly large then you can go ahead and give it a go, or if you want something that is bumpy in just the right places you can try that, too.

I do wish they'd make smaller dildoes, but I realize that I'm an outlier when it comes to size.

There are plenty of "smaller" dildos. How small are you trying to get?

Have you tried Eden's shopping tools to refine the choices by length, diameter, material etc.?

Of course, that tool has been a God-send!

I feel the EXACT same way.

No, I usually just go up to the search bar. I don't use the shopping tools often enough, but that's a good suggestion and I'll try it.

Because bigger is better.

Because sometimes you just need something long and thick to do the job... if you can get the "normal" size with a man, then why not get the fantasy on your own?

What everyone else says. but it does make me wonder how many men versus women are involved in design these things and which gender would create the larger dildo when asked, random thought.

I was actually wondering the opposite a few days ago! I was trying to find one with similar size to my current partner, but there aren't that many. I guess I'll have to keep him around!

I think it's the same reason others have mentioned - the designers imagination is the only limitation, so why not have some fun?

But since I tend to have teensy anatomy, I can attest that there are plenty of smaller dildos out there. The Tantus small silk is great, the Happy Valley Slim Jim is quite average, the VixSkin Tex is nice (although too realistic for me - not my thing), and the Sportsheets Sedeux line is all fairly 'average' as well.

I enjoy watching my wife ride a big dildo and her biggest enjoyment is me giving it to her When I tag myself in for the finish I can feel her throbbing and we both enjoy it a lot.

So, I would venture to guess there are several "male" dildo designers as most of us who are very comfortable with our size/partner we don't mind a little fun thrown into the mix.

Supply and Demand. It's the same reason they have dildos that look nothing like penises whatsoever.

It's all about sales. Companies think that's what people want, so that's what they make.

Probably a mix of what everyone's said already: it's what the companies think will sell, it can be fun to go beyond the average limits, and some women genuinely enjoy the larger sizes.

There might also be another aspect at work here: it's still not unusual to find a person who believes that bigger will be better simply because that's what society-at-large believes. Many people don't explore their sexuality and preferences to the same extent that a toy enthusiast will. I used to think I was abnormal for preferring smaller toys, but thankfully I've learned there's nothing wrong with it.

To me it's just proof that 'the size doesn't matter' front I hear so much, is just that, a front. My wife would never admit that she'd like it if I were larger - especially girthier - but when I see the orgasms she has with her larger toys, I know the real story.

I can't do anything about it - I have what I have and do the best that I can - but don't kid yourself - size matters.

Most want bigger in toys otherwise we would just stick with the real thing

In my opinion, the reason some toys are bigger than average is because that's all they have going for them. They have nothing a real man has, and can't do what a man/partner can do, so they have to rely on their size to get the job done. And personally, I do not want a gigantic dildo all the time (it can get painful), so a variety of sizes is really nice.

I think it's because some people really get off on it. So there's a niche.

I think part of it has to do with the fact that most sex toy companies are headed up by men, and men are (in my experience) more likely to hold the mistaken idea that ALL women prefer big penises.

This, I'd imagine, is why female-owned companies (e.g. Tantus) tend to have more of a variety of smaller dildos.

Well. And to be honest there is always the "don't put all of it in" idea that adds to the population buying the toy.

Agree with this, I know they do have smaller ones but not as many. Wish tantus made some softer toys.
