A Double Dong Introduction – Fun Tips Today

Your garden variety sex-shop double dongs are usually made out of rubber and/or vinyl, but most quality double dongs are made out of silicone.  

Although the silicone double dongs are generally a little more expensive, they feel great, as well as being more durable and easier to clean than other materials.

Jelly double dongs are made of soft, translucent rubbery stuff and come in bright colors. They’re economical and cute, and good for beginners, but can pick up lint.

Cyberskin and Ultraskin double dongs give a soft, life-like feel, some come with “skin” that moves creating that I’ve got balls feeling.

They require careful handling but can be worth it for the realistic sensations.

There are also double dongs available in materials like glass, stainless steel and acrylic, all of which make for a good hard…use your imagination here.

All the above said double dongs fall into a few basic types and below I’ve made a short list of these types to help guide you through the often bewildering selection.
Realistic Double dongs

Realistic double dongs rate amongst the most popular of all the types on the market today.

As the name suggests in general, they will look something like a penis, although some of them bear very little resemblance to any guys giggle stick that I’ve ever seen but…I digress.

If you’re looking for really realistic then you have a variety of options and materials open to you.

Cyberskin and silicone are probably the best materials when it comes to achieving that almost realistic feel if that’s what you are looking for.

Many porn stars are now lending their best assets to the world of double dong making and if you really want to experience John Holmes in all his glory, but without the ego then you can.

There are even double dongs that are modelled on animal genitalia available although I can’t see either Katie or myself testing these in this lifetime.

How realistic you think these double dongs are varies greatly from manufacturer to manufacturer.

Generally, the smaller companies or partisans will create the most life-like double dongs and one of my particular favorites is the “Realistic” which is pictured above.

In general, the more expensive the double dong the more attention to detail will have been paid to making it realistic.

Many of the double dongs on the market bear no real resemblance to actual penis, and personally I tend to prefer them that way.

This type so double dong come in many different shapes, sizes and some extremely funky colors.

Many are made from jelly, which has the advantage of being slightly pliable, others are molded to include ridges for maximum sensation, while others are so far removed from what you would normally consider a double dong to be, they are almost scary.

Many of the non-realistic vibes are made specifically for g-spot stimulation, such as the stimulator which is pictured above.

Technically balls are double dongs because they are not attached to a motor or actually powered by exterior source.

One of the most commonly known type of balls are Ben Wa Balls.

These consist of two large ball bearings that are designed to be inserted into the vagina where they rub against one another and reportedly cause some intense sensations for some women. 

Although others like myself find them more irritating than anything else.

Another type of ball is the duotone ball. Like ben wa balls these are inserted into the vagina, but they are made of of a softer substance such as silicone and the ball bearing is inside of the balls themselves. 

Duotone balls and their variants are generally connected by a cord, which helps make them easy to retrieve, something that is important I’m sure you will agree.

Beads have a wide appeal and are popular when it comes to anal play. Generally, they are a series of silicone, jelly or plastic spheres strung together on a cord.

Often the spheres will be graduated, getting larger at one end. Beads are slowly inserted into the vagina or the anus and then gently pulled out, which in turn creates pleasurable sensations.

Anal double dongs as the name suggests are specifically designed for anal use.

The thing that makes them different from all other double dongs is that they have a flared base or cord, so they don’t get lost.

It’s amazing how many people end up in ER rooms each year with double dongs that weren’t designed for anal play stuck where the sun generally doesn’t shine.

If you don’t want to be one of those casualties, then make sure you ONLY use a double dong specifically designed for anal play

A double headed double dong is a double dong built for two.  

Typically, a little more than twice as long as a regular double dong, both ends can be inserted. If it is long and flexible enough, you can use it on yourself for both anal and vagina stimulation.

Some double dongs have a suction cup base to be attached to a surface for a solo ride, or to simulate a three-way. 

Double dongs with flared bases can be worn in a harness, although some double dongs with balls may not fit. 

Leather or nylon harnesses work best as they hold things in place better and don’t stretch out like elastic. Plus, the leather looks hot. 

There are double dong harnesses that men can wear that will accommodate their dick and balls and allow for double penetration of a woman. 

Other harness-type devices allow a double dong to be mounted on the wearer’s face, allowing for a close-up view and oral opportunities.

Other double dong gizmos include dongs with built-in or insertable vibrators, inflatable or squirting double dongs, bendable and posable double dongs, even light-up double dongs. 

You name it and someone has probably thought of adding it to the double dong wonderland, just be careful with these type of toys as many are sold simply for novelty value.

Double dongs like most sex toys now come in a somewhat bewildering list of materials, from plastic to silicone and everything in-between. 

The reason for this is because each material gives each toy a different feel. If you’re looking for hard and inflexible then plastic for example would be a perfect choice.
On the other hand if you’re looking for realistic then Cyberskin would give you about as close as you can get to the feel feel.

As when choosing all toys the material you choose should be an important part of your decision. 

Mainly because not only does this effect the feel of the toy itself but also it’s care and uses, for example some toys are better suited to sharing with your partners that other.

Below I’ve listed the most popular of the double dong materials on the market today along with their pros and cons to help you with your choice.

Plastic

Plastic is commonly used as the material that forms the outer casing of duotone balls. Plastic toys generally have hard, smooth exteriors and are inflexible.
Cleaning is easy – all you need is a wet washcloth, some sex toy cleaner or soap, or a tissue soaked in rubbing alcohol.

Silicone

Silicone is often referred to as the queen of double dongs and not without good reason. 

It has the ability to absorb body heat and retain it, as well as having an extremely realistic feel. 

Because it is molded it comes in a variety of shapes, colors and sizes. 

Silicone is also easy to clean, requiring nothing more than soap and water, this is because it’s reasonably non-porous. If you felt so inclined, you could also run it through the dishwasher or boil it. 

Another advantage it has over its relatives is that because it’s non-porous it is less likely to spread germs.

Although I would always recommend using a condom if you’re sharing your toys with a partner silicone is the least likely to spread any nasties should they exist.

Generally, silicone is one of the more expensive sex toys, but the extra cost is balanced out because if cared for properly these toys will out last many of its counterparts.

Jelly

Jelly double dongs despite their name are not as flexible as many people would imagine. 

Instead they are soft and pliable, but they still retain some rigidity. 

If you’re looking for something a little stiffer than the silicone above, then jelly maybe the material for you.

Jelly double dongs are close in look and texture to silicone but are not quite as smooth and lifelike. 

Jelly is a great material for people who want the realistic feel of a silicone double dong but don’t want to pay the higher price for silicone. 

Jelly however is more porous than silicone and therefore should not be shared between partners without using a condom.

It’s worth noting that you should also never use rubbing alcohol to clean jelly.

You should also always use a water-based lubricant with this material as oil-based lubes will break down the jelly and we certainly don’t want that.

Because of the porous nature of Jelly it’s harder to clean than silicone and a good sex toy cleaner is a good idea as this will take care of any bacteria that might survive simple washing in soap and water.

Latex

Latex is often considered the poor man’s alternative to silicone or jelly. 

It is a good choice however if you are simply experimenting with the various shapes and sizes of double dongs because it is relatively cheap compared to other materials. 

Most latex double dongs are soft, but less flexible than either silicone of jelly. It is not as durable either and is porous which makes it harder to clean. 

Another thing worth noting is that many people are allergic to latex, if you or your partner are allergic to latex condoms then this is not a good choice for obvious reasons. 

If you plan on sharing a latex toy, ALWAYS use a condom.

The best way to clean latex is simply with soap and water.

Glass

Over the past year or so there has been an explosion of glass double dongs on the market. 

Despite many people’s initial reservations glass makes for a great toy material. Usually these are made of Pyrex glass which as any good cook knows is about as durable as it comes. 

Each double dong is rigorously tested before leaving the factory. 

Despite what you may have been led to believe though glass toys should not be heated in the oven, instead you can change the temperature by placing it in warm or iced water. 

Glass double dongs are not cheap by any stretch of the imagination, but they are beautiful, easy to clean and highly durable.

Cyberskin

Cyberskin rates as about as near to the feel of real skin as any sex toy has come so far. It’s amazing soft and smooth and feels like, well real skin. 

Like Jelly and latex though it is porous, so it’s essential to clean it thoroughly or preferably use a cleaner especially made for the job.

Metal

Whilst metal is not commonly used for double dongs there are some that do exist. Generally made of surgical stainless steel they are extremely hard, [well they are metal!], durable and easy to clean.

Acrylic

Acrylic is actually made from a special form of plastic. 

Often used to make wands, acrylic has the same properties and looks of the more expensive glass double dongs. 

Acrylic is easy to clean and non-porous, it also is extremely durable and with care an acrylic double dong should last a lifetime.
