had a dildo once, NOT as exciting as a vibrator. the dildo didn't do much on its own, where as with a vibe, all you have to do is push a little button and go to town as you see fit. no extra work involved.
I love dildos, vibes are okay, but I only need one or two, dildos, on the other hand, I need in all shapes and sizes for every situation. I might be able to get off with a vibe, but I know I can with a dildo.
