In this guide we’re looking at the best silicone dildos. Some people are worried about skin irritation or pain after use with some types of dildos, but actually, you will find that silicone is one of the best possible materials for this type of product, and that some of the models we’ve listed make it incredibly unlikely that any skin irritation will occur meaning that using your toy can be pure pleasure.
In this guide, we’ve looked at a lot of the top features that silicone dildos should have and how you can judge one from another. Both the circumference and the insertable length have been considered so that you can choose the size you want, as well as the o-ring diameter for sticking the dildo places, and the color and design. Whether or not the dildo is waterproof, and how flexible it is, have also been considered.
This has a striking pink design, but isn’t just in the list because of how it looks. This is a large silicone dildo which is designed with the texture and swollen head you would expect. It’s great for insertion at up to 5 inches, and has a 4 inch circumference, too. A lot of people have said that the pronounced head is one of the most pleasurable aspects of this dildo.
It has a suction cup that lets you stick it on the wall, or anywhere else around the house! It will stay secure in place so your hands are free to do what you wish! This is a waterproof model so you can put it in the bath or shower if you want. It can be used with a harness if you get a model with a 1.75 inch O-ring for insertion.
If you don’t want absolutely huge dildos and are happy with pretty big, then this is a good option, it is also very realistic in feel and can be used with your favorite types of lube with ease. It works with a harness and the suction cup allows further versatility so you can put it wherever you want.
This is an all-round model with plenty of features that help it to the top of our list.
What are its best features?
Very flexible and versatile.
Can be used with a harness.
Easy to stick to the wall with a suction cup.
Realistic feel with soft silicone.
What could be improved?
Suction can cause this to slide around on some flat surfaces.
Some people are looking for a bit more of a slimline and less intimidating model, and as well as being a great option for people who don’t want anything with too much girth, the Lovehoney Slimline Silicone Suction Cup Dildo is also very affordable, making it a really good choice for beginners.
The silicone used is very smooth, and designed to be kind to your skin. It is also waterproof so you can use a lube and you can ensure that you are fine to use in the bath. It has a flare at the base which makes it perfectly safe as one of the top silicone anal dildos.
The curved shape gives something a little different to many of the other options and allows for some new sensations. It is also possible to use this with a harness and it has a 1.25 inch diameter for an o-ring.
If you are one of the people who is a bit intimidated by the idea of the girthier models then this could be for you. Its curved tip can find G-spots, but the soft hypoallergenic silicone and thinner design mean that it isn’t too big for those out there worried about this. It’s still very flexible and has an impressive insertable length of five inches.
Why did it make our list?
Curved design can find G-spots.
Suction cup means you can mount this to flat surfaces.
Who knew that huge silicone dildos and soft silicone dildos can be the same model? This brilliant curved model, the Lovehoney Earth and Fire Curved Silicone Suction Cup Dildo, looks great and feels even better. Though it has a big insertable length of 6.5 inches, it is affordable and still manages to stay soft as a medical grade silicone dildo.
As well as being cheap this is suitable for all sorts of solo and couples play, and you can use it with a bullet vibrator which can be placed inside the bottom of the suction cup and give some more bedroom buzz.
It’s totally waterproof and very flexible, plus the suction cup can reliably stick on tough surfaces. Lovehoney even recommends a specific design of vibrator that can be used in conjunction with it. Neither are particularly expensive.
This is harness compatible and you can use an o-ring of 1.5 inches to attach this to your harness for couples play and pegging.
Be warned that this is a pretty huge model, so for those who have never experienced this size and girth before, you might want to use plenty of lube. In general, it is tough to get such a well-designed, flexible dildo for such a good price.
Why did it make our list?
Can be used with a harness or in conjunction with a bullet vibrator.
The Desire Luxury Weighted Curved Silicone Dildo is an exceptional model for people looking for a curved dildo which can help to find the g-spot. Some people might see the nine inches and be worried about this size, but don’t worry, four to five inches is the insertable length.
It offers flexibility in design, as well as being curved it has one bigger, bulbed end and one slimmer end, with a weighted metal interior to help you to reach areas to bring new pleasure and new sensations into your life.
This is waterproof, so you can use it wherever you want, in the bath, for example, but it doesn’t have the same functions as some of the best silicone dildos we’ve already mentioned as it cannot be used with a harness and it doesn’t have a suction cup to attach to anything. This is definitely a good idea for people looking for something a little bit different from their toy and to reach new and exciting pleasure zones.
You can use either end of this, just put some lube on the tip and you will be ready to go. It has a rigid design which is different from some of the others, but don’t fear, the silicone still has a smooth and velvety feel to it so you don’t have to worry about roughness or chafing.
The Lovehoney Satisfy Me Curve Silicone Dildo is another curved design with two ends, but it is a bit smaller than the model above. It has a 6.5 inch insertable length, though, which is pretty sizeable. In truth, most people use one end or the other. For some, the bulbous end is preferable and for others the thinner end is ideal, it depends on your personal preference.
This is an affordable dildo that still offers plenty of functions and features. The silicone is good quality though it isn’t quite as smooth as some of the other models. It deliberately has some textured areas for a different sensation.
While some of the other bendy models of dildo don’t have any flexibility at all, this has quite a lot of give. Its two ends give a totally unique feeling and while they can’t be used easily for couples’ play, it is great for a night on your own.
As with a lot of the other models it is totally waterproof, but it cannot be stuck to any surfaces, it doesn’t have an o-ring or a suction end to allow you to stick it in one place for hands-free play. Overall, the Lovehoney Satisfy Me Curve Silicone Dildo is a good option for those on a budget who still want to find the G-spot with their dildo.
The Vixen Mustang VixSkin Bright Realistic Suction Cup Dildo gives a realistic (yet large) feeling, perfect for those looking for a large dildo that gives the human touch. It has a loud and multicolored design and though not easy to subtly store at 8 inches, it has a lot to offer if you’re looking for a bigger insertable length.
This can also be used with an o-ring with a diameter of 1.5 inches so it is good for couples’ play. The waterproof design makes it ideal for use in the bath or shower and it has a solid feel.
The incredibly lifelike VixSkin material that Vixen has become famous for gives a realistic feeling and allows you to appreciate all those little details and textures.
This model is the incredibly cool unicorn design, but there are flesh colors and more realistic tones available too, if you would prefer.
The shaft is slightly curved for a further realism, and this is responsive to temperature, so no more cold dildos giving you a shock.
If you want small and inexpensive then you might want to look elsewhere, but for a large model with all the realism you could wish for then the Vixen Mustang could be the best option for you, with the raised veins and authentic head.
The Rainbow Silicone Realistic Suction Cup Dildo with Balls is designed to celebrate everything LGBT! It should be used with pride.
This is another dildo designed for a realistic feel. The textured feel and the balls attached at the base of the shaft make it great for use in either vaginal or anal penetration.

One of the best things about it is the super-soft silicone which allows for smooth insertion. You’ll still need lube but this is a great model for those looking for texture that goes along with a smooth feeling.
The firm and flexible model feels nice and rigid but also flexes to your movements. The best of both worlds.

Excellent, loud and fun design.
Great for vaginal or anal penetration.
Super soft silicone for simple and easy insertion.
Which disadvantages must you keep in mind?
The balls at the bottom of the shaft could be bigger to protect you when inserting fully.

Gives a very unique texture and feel.
Very big and represents value for money.
Can be used with a suction cup.
What negatives must you be aware of?
A lot of girth, too much for some people.
Things to Consider
Are you looking to buy a dildo but just not quite sure of what features you should be looking out for? Maybe it is your first and you aren’t sure about what size to go for, for example. Our guide can provide you with more information on silicone dildos. Why would you choose the silicone material?
In this guide we’re aiming to answer all of your questions about silicone dildos and which is right for you. As well as our silicone dildo reviews above, we’ve gone into a lot of the different features.
Silicone dildos – pros and cons
Why would you go for silicone? What are the positive things about silicone dildos when compared to other types, and in what ways are they left lacking? There are pros and cons to every different type of sex toy, of course.
Silicone dildos are relatively inexpensive compared to some of the other styles.
Silicone dildos can be both firm and flexible, whereas other types of dildo will either be rock solid, or a bit too bendy for a lot of peoples’ likings.
Silicone is a great waterproof material meaning that the vast majority of silicone products can be used in the bath, especially if they do not have any sort of vibrating function.
Many of the silicone models have been made with a suction cup at the end, this is easier for silicone models and they are light enough to stand upright even though they have a
Silicone is a good substance for people who suffer with sensitive skin and allergies. It is non-toxic and a lot of the silicone models are made to be soft on skin, with no latex within.
They can’t be stored together unless you wrap them individually as silicone will have a bad impact on other silicone products and can cause it to melt.
Silicone can pick up lint pretty easily so you might end up with a buildup unless you store within a bag. You can buy specific toy bags which are both subtle and protective.
You must not use silicone lubricant with your toy, make sure you are using water-based lubricant, as most is nowadays anyway.
Features to consider when choosing a silicone dildo
So, what are the features to think about when you are buying a silicone dildo? What have we looked into when creating our reviews? How can you ensure that you have a dildo which is exactly what you are looking for rather than end up disappointed?
The circumference might be a polite way of saying the “girth” of the silicone dildos. Some people are looking to find products that are thinner than others, while some prefer a thicker feel. Some of this will depend on personal preference. If you are looking to get a product that has a lot of girth then go for something like the Lovehoney Earth and Fire Curved Silicone Suction Cup Dildo, which has an impressive 4.5 inches. Be warned you might need more in the way of lube for this sort of dildo.
A lot of people look first at the insertable length as this is what they will actually be using with their dildo.
The dimensions might be different from the insertable length.
Whereas the insertable length is the area intended for use, the rest can be made up of balls or a suction cup.
The dimensions should come to mind when you consider storage, if you are looking for something that is easy to store in a subtle way then you might not want to go for a big model like the Desire Luxury Weighted Curved Silicone Dildo which is nine inches long.
Flexibility is another consideration, as you will likely want the dildo to have some flex and give when it is in use. Most people who are looking to buy a silicone dildo are looking to get a product that can flex and give a little. Some have a specific look and feel to them. The Lovehoney Satisfy Me Curve Silicone Dildo is an example of a product that is flexible. The Desire Luxury Weighted Curved Silicone Dildo is a very similar dildo in terms of the fact that it is bendy and flexible, but the Desire Luxury Weighted model doesn’t have this same flexibility.
Do you want a model that is waterproof? There are a lot of reasons for getting a waterproof dildo. First and foremost, you should look to get a waterproof model if you want to be able to use it in the bath or in the shower, but also if you are looking to make it easier to clean. The models on this list are all waterproof, but be careful if you are looking to get models which vibrate as they can potentially have electronics within so may not be waterproof.
Water-based lubricants can also be used with waterproof dildos. This is very useful as you cannot use silicone-based lubricants on a silicone dildo.
Design and structure
A quick look through our list will show you how many different designs there are on the market. There are bendy models, straight ones, and a variety of different textures. The structure is normally pretty flexible if you are looking to get a silicone dildo instead of glass or another material.
Some are designed to be realistic, and have the veins and bulbous head that can replicate the natural look and feel of a penis.
Color isn’t the main thing that you should make your decision based on, but it is still cool to be able to get a dildo that looks good. The editor’s choice, for example, the Lifelike Lover Luxe Realistic Silicone Dildo, is a great option for people who are keen on pink! Other designs have LGBT themes, whereas some are meant to be sleek and simple.
One of the other key features is whether or not the dildo can be used within a harness. If it can, it will have an o-ring size mentioned allowing you to put this on a harness around your waist.
Naturally, the suction is another key feature, many of the models feature a suction end, which allows you to attach it to the floor, wall, or other surfaces for hands free fun. This is great if you are with a partner and you want your hands to remain free.
Other features include storage bags and carriers, which can be a good way to ensure that the dildo doesn’t pick up lint or come into contact with other silicone items, too.
You shouldn’t take any risks when it comes to cleaning your dildo. The fact that a number of the dildos on the market are totally waterproof makes it easy to rinse them, but we also recommend using sex toy wipes, which are specifically designed for cleaning items such as dildos.
A dildo should be cleaned after each use whether you are the only person using it or you use it in couples play. You need to be cautious with silicone as some of the things you can wipe it with may stick to the outside, so specific sex toy wipes are the best option for cleaning in the majority of cases.
A vibrator is designed to give pleasure by…well, vibrating. They can give clitoral stimulation as opposed to being inserted. Some can do both, and while most dildos are designed for penetration, some can be used in conjunction with a vibrator. Due to the design not having any electronics, dildos are more likely to be waterproof.
Most people use lubricants with silicone dildos, but make sure you are using a water-based lubricant as silicone-based lubricants are not suitable. This can get confusing! Luckily, there are a lot of water lubricant options out there for you to choose between. If you are using a particularly big dildo or you plan to use it for anal penetration then you should definitely use lubricants to be on the safe side.
Although there aren’t specific health restrictions, you shouldn’t experience any pain and if you do then it is time to stop and work out what is causing this pain. On top of this, if you have any specific allergies or know that there are substances that irritate your skin then you should be wary of these. Always keep your dildo clean and wash it after use, too.
Next on the list is the Lovehoney Slimline Silicone Suction Cup Dildo. This is better for people who are not looking for something with loads of girth and makes a good choice if it is your first dildo. We’ve given it a rating of 9.8/10, with the suction being particularly impressive.
The Lovehoney Earth and Fire Curved Silicone Suction Cup Dildo is another model which is pretty large, but it does a good job if you want to use it in a harness, and it has a realistic feel to it. If you’re happy with the size then this is one of the best silicone dildos out there. We’ve rated it 9.8/10.
