What does dual density mean?
Dual density simply means there is a firm inner within the dildo and a soft outer that encourages comfort and flexibility. Dual density designs were introduced to emphasise firmness. Therefore, to mimic the feeling of real sex, dual density was incorporated into many realistic dildos. Usually dual density dongs are made from silicone or thermoplastic rubber (TPR) or thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) material. They have become the preferred choice by many, yet many people don't actually realise if they have a single density or dual density dildo.
Why should you consider a dual density dildo!
Dual density gives you the closest you can get to a realistic experience. Something that you may have never gave a second though about, is that a penis is actually softer than you give it credit for. The head of a penis is actually quite spongy and acts as a shock absorber during vigorous penetration. Naturally, to keep things comfortable, you want something that mimics this comfortability. This is exactly what dual density silicone dildos provide, the squishy outer layer means that things aren't going to hit the vaginal walls to hard. This is particularly useful for safe anal play!
Silicone is the best!
One material that's worthwhile noting is silicone. Dual density toys are made to be firm and are therefore usually stiff and inflexible. However, toys that are dual density and silicone mix firmness with flexibility. The deisgn of silicone dual density dongs has a firm inner that keeps the structure of the dong firm. Whilst the silicone outside of the dong makes the outside soft and comfortable to hold or insert. Silicone is recommended because it is so hygienic. As long as silicone doesn't have any mechanical pieces, ultra-premium silicone dildos can be sterilised through boiling or washed in the dishwasher. It's also very skin and body safe. Silicone is generally easier to clean than TPR material. This is because silicone is non-porous, whilst TPR is porous. Porous means there are small holes within the material that can potentially harbour bacteria. Therefore, if using a non-porous sex toy, thorough cleaning and keeping it dry is very important. This doesn’t mean you can be complacent with your silicone toys!
Combining densities into a dildo gives the most realistic experience. This is important because you want to be able to get lost in the moment, whether enjoying a solo session or sharing it with a partner. Rather than being distracted by inserting an inanimate object into yourself. This will help you on feeling the sensations, encourages intimacy and increases the likelihood of reaching orgasm.
One aspect you may want to consider when purchasing a dual density silicone dildo is the amount of squish it provides. Truly only the manufacturer can know how much of the squishy layer there is on a dual density silicone dildo.
Using a strap-on
Whenever using a dual density dildo by yourself you are aware of your limits and probably have a fair idea when you need to reapply lubricant. However, when a partner is donning a dildo strap on, they may find it more difficult to control the depth of insertion. This is where dual density dildos are so effective, like a sexy saving grace. The soft outer layer will brace the impact whenever strap on play becomes a bit too passionate. With great power comes great responsibility!

King Cock (thermoplastic elastomers)
A more affordable option compared to Tantus is King Cock. Beginners may want to start with the Plus 6 whilst more experienced users may want to go for the Plus 9. One awesome feature that King Cock dildos have is a suction cup base. Suction cup dildos allow all the variation you need to spice up play.
Ultra-premium silicone dildos, like the ones in the Tantus range are perfectly safe for temperature play. As long as they have no mechanical pieces you can submerge them in cold or warm water to add additional sensation or make insertion more comfortable. Before taking part in any temperature play it's important to gauge whether how hot or cold someone is willing to go. Further, it's recommended to not keep cool or heat up your dildo for too long. Meaning to not forget about it if you leave it in the freezer, setting a phone alarm may be a good idea!
Are you looking for a large or small dildo? Remember to pay close attention to the measurements of each dildo. Some dildos may have less length, but have a wider girth!
