5 Unconventional uses for a Dildo

There is so much more to dildos than we give them credit for! They’re not just veiny hunks of rubber anymore; these days, toymakers create all sorts of elegant dildos out of glass, wood, metal, and stone, just to name a few. And while they feel wonderful when used as intended, there are several other ways to use them as well. Here are some little-known potential functions of your favorite dildo…

Practice oral sex on it

If you’re less-than-confident in your fellatio skills, practicing on a dildo is a perfectly valid way of improving them. It can boost your confidence in your abilities while also letting you get used to the difficult sensations of, say, deepthroating, so that you’ll be able to blow a partner’s mind more easily the next time you go down on them.

If you’re in a long-distance relationship, perhaps your partner would appreciate being sent a video clip of your next “practice session”!

Use it as a massage tool

You’ve heard of massages being administered using hot stones and other firm implements… Why not use a glass, metal, or stone dildo for the same purpose?

When properly lubricated with luxurious massage oil, the round ball at the end of a glass dildo can be used to work out knots of tension in your neck and shoulders, for example, while the cool texture of a smooth stone dildo can feel divine rolled along one’s back. No need to buy fancy massage equipment if you’ve already got a gorgeous implement in your nightstand drawer!

Improve your condom usage skills

Condoms are a non-negotiable part of sex for many of us, but it can be tricky to put them on correctly, especially in the heat of the moment. But practice makes perfect, so why not whip out your favorite dildo and use it as a penile stand-in?

By the way, you can do this even if you have a penis yourself. Condoms are meant to be applied while the penis is erect, but you won’t necessarily be able to maintain a full erection the whole time you’re practicing – so a dildo could be just the prop you need.

Massage your pelvic muscles

A firm dildo with a curve can be used for gentle massage of the pelvic floor, G-spot, and surrounding areas. Pelvic massage is a recommended line of treatment for pelvic pain, bladder problems, vaginismus, and various other conditions. Typically this treatment is administered by a professional, but you can also do pelvic massage yourself at home. (Do your research and be gentle, please!)

Display it as a work of art

Maybe not if the in-laws are coming over for dinner, but… some dildos are so beautiful, they deserve a place of honor on the mantelpiece!
