A Trip Down Memory Lane: The History of Double Ended Dildos

Believe it or not, double-ended dildos have been around for centuries. Back in ancient times, the Greeks and Romans used them for sexual pleasure, and they even showed up in artwork from that time period. In the Victorian era, double-ended dildos were popular among lesbians, who used them for mutual masturbation.

However, while double ended dildos were previously thought of as a toy exclusively for lesbian couples, times have changed. And so have our attitudes towards sex and sexuality. Nowadays, people of all genders and sexual orientations are exploring the possibilities of double ended dildos.

"Double ended dildos are like the Swiss Army knives of sex toys," says sex toy expert, Dr Samantha Jones. "They offer a variety of ways to use them, whether it's for solo play or with a partner. And the best part? You get twice the pleasure."

Double Ended Dildos 101: A Simple Users Guide

Put simply, double ended dildos are special sex toys with two dildos attached to each other at the base. This creates an extra-long sex toy with two insertable ends.

Double ended dildos can be used for a variety of sexual activities, from solo masturbation to partnered play. One of the most popular uses for double-ended dildos is for simultaneous penetration, with each partner taking one end of the dildo. This can be a great way to explore new positions and sensations and can lead to mind-blowing orgasms for both partners.

Double-ended dildos can also be used solo, with one end inserted vaginally and the other end used for anal stimulation. This can be a great way to explore your own body and discover new sensations.

The Joy of Sharing: Double Ended Dildos for Couples

One of the most popular ways to use a double ended dildo is with a partner as it provides exciting new sexual opportunities and is also a unique way to connect with your partner on a deeper level.

You can use any combination of sexual positions and orifices with each partner working together to find the right rhythm. This can take a little experimentation and a lot of communication both of which are perfect for bringing couples together and having fun.

"I love using a double ended dildo with my partner," says Jenna, 28. "It's such an intimate experience, and it feels like we're both experiencing the pleasure together. Plus, it's a great way to switch things up in the bedroom."

Double Ended Dildos for Solo Play: Because You Deserve Twice the Pleasure

If you're single or prefer to play alone, double ended dildos can also be a great addition to your sex toy collection. 

As Adam, 34 explains: "I love using a double ended dildo for solo play," says Adam, 34. "It's like having two toys in one, and it really allows me to explore my body in a way that I can't with other toys."

But using a double ended dildo for solo play can also be a bit of a challenge, especially when it comes to positioning.

Luckily, Dr Jones has a simple solution: "I recommend using a pillow or cushion to prop up the toy. This will help you find the right angle and allow you to get creative with your positions!"

Finding the Perfect Double Ended Dildo: What to Look For

The first thing to understand when it comes to choosing a double ended dildo is that the size of the toy really depends on your personal preference. If you're new to using double ended dildos, it is usually recommended to start with a smaller size and work your way up. 

But it's not just about size. Material and texture also play a key role in finding the perfect double ended dildo. Many people prefer toys made of silicone because they're easy to clean, are nice and flexible and feel great. Other people prefer softer materials like jelly while others like the firmness of glass or metal.

“As always, explains Dr Jones, “the best thing is to experiment and see what works for you!”
