Turns out dildos have been around for a lot longer than any of us could have imagined! In fact, they have been around since prehistoric times! Archeologists have discovered some of the earliest dildos made from stone that date back to 28,000 BC, which is approximately 7,000 years before humans started writing! This means that our prehistoric ancestors had already discovered the joys of a good dildo twelve thousand years ago!
And if you think about it, it makes total sense. Our ancestors were as much of sexual beings as we are today, so why would they not have explored their options? It may have been used in early ritual ceremonies as a fertility aid, or even just to bring some extra pleasure during intercourse. And if you think about it, these primitive dildos were probably a lot better for them than the often unsafe and uncomfortable materials we use today, like rubber or plastic.
But, while these dildos were being used in prehistoric times, the word ‘dildo’ itself was not actually invented until much later. The word ‘dildo’ comes from the very old English term ‘dilldow’. This was used to describe a huge wooden phallic object, often used in the popular comedy ‘Merry Wives of Windsor’ which was written in the 1700s.
It wasn’t until centuries later, during the 20th century, when sex toy manufacturers began to mass-produce dildos designed for pleasure. We’ve come a long way since then, as technology has allowed us to experiment with different shapes, sizes, and materials. Now, not only are dildos made with more comfortable materials, but they are also becoming more interactive and innovative with modern features like remote control, vibration settings and turbo boost.
So there you have it, dildos have been around a lot longer than any of us would have expected. And from the start of this journey, we have evolved and progressed so much. Who knows what comes next?
Well, as the world of dildos is constantly changing and evolving, it’s no surprise that they have become even more popular in recent years. Unlike before, most people are no longer scared to experiment with sex toys. Many people now own a couple dildos for whatever use they see fit, whether it’s solo pleasure or spicing things up in the bedroom with a partner. Even retailers are offering a wide range of specialised dildos, at affordable prices.
This is a great thing, as dildos do have many different uses. For example, they can be used for clitoral and G-spot stimulation, something that can often be hard to do without a dildo. Some can even be used to stimulate deeper erogenous zones that are often overlooked with just fingers and tongues. And for those between partners, dildos can make great little vibrating, waterproof substitutes.
Also, cleaning and maintaining your dildos is super easy. With the right materials, such as antibacterial wipes and toy cleaning solutions, cleaning a dildo is just a few seconds of your time. This is great news!
While dildos are a great way to spice up your sex life, they do come with certain responsibilities. Being aware of which materials to use and how to keep them clean is essential. Making sure that you have a good lubricant and taking care when using a dildo (especially anally) are also important considerations. Essentially, be smart, and stay informed. This way, you will always have the best dildo experience possible.
