A Beginner's Guide to Picking the Right Size Dildo for You

 

At Betty's, we carry a lot of dildos. The variety can be frankly mind boggling if you don't know what you want. We also hear from a fair number of folks who have bitten off more than they can chew (so to speak) when purchasing a dildo online. So, we've put together this handy guide to help you find a size that will be just right for you. 

LENGTH AND INSERTABLE LENGTH

We try very hard to make sure all our toys have measurements attached. You should see the length and the insertable length listed. Length is the size of the toy from top to bottom, which often includes the suction cup, or base. Insertable Length is the amount that you can put inside you, taking into consideration the base and the testicles which are not insertable. The Real Feel Deluxe #12 12 Inch Vibrating Dildo pictured here is 12 inches top to bottom but insertable 10.6 inches (still the length of my forearm, by the way)

 

 

 

 

In case you've forgotten your high school geometry, here's what you're looking at with girth. Circumference is also called GIRTH when you're dealing with penises. Diameter is usually called WIDTH. 

 

There are no hard and fast rules when it comes to dildos but you can usually assume that when you start to get over 7 inches in insertable length, that dildo is going to be pretty wide. There are also some shorter dildos that are made to be stout, like the Vixskin Randy 5.75 Inch Silicone Dildo. While the insertable length is about that of an average erect penis, it boasts a 2.25 inch girth - a full 3/4 of an inch wider than the average penis
