• Most strap-on harness kits have either a hole or an O-ring that you slot the dildo into, and usually come with at least one dildo to start you off. Once you discover the joys of strap-on sex though, you'll be hungry to try dildos in new shapes and sizes - or may be be ready to go bigger.

    This guide will give you all the information you need to choose the right dildo to fit your strap-on. And remember, with our generous returns policy you can always check your dildo in your harness at home and if it doesn't fit, just send it back.

    Strap ons are a great sex toy for couples. They allow you to penetrate your partner, while keeping your hands free for other fun… We've come a long way since dildos on a piece of elastic, so now when people speak about a strap-on, they usually mean a strap-on harness.

    A strap-on harness lets the wearer have more comfort and control, ensuring they can give the most pleasure to their partner. Most of the time, you can also switch dildos in and out of a harness so you can experiment with a whole range of toys.

    When you first look at Belladonna's Bitch Fist Dildo, one of two things will come to mind:

    Reaction A - Ouch!
    Reaction B - Wow that looks fun!

    The large length and girth can be very intimidating to those who are new to sex toys, but it can also be very pleasurable, satisfying you in a way no other dildo can.

    Fancy a dildo but don't want to leave your partner out of the fun? Then hop onboard a double-ended dildo for twice the pleasure, or use it solo for mind-blowing penetration!

    Available in many different lengths, colours, textures and shapes, double-ended dildos were once the 'mythical' sex toys only viewable as the grand finale in any lesbian porn film. But since these incredible pleasure products have been made widely available to the public, more and more people are discovering just how stimulating they are.

    If you've always wanted to enjoy double penetration or you love the idea of sharing the pegging fun with a partner, then a double dildo will give you exactly that level of excitement - and much, much more…

    When you want straight-forward satisfaction, you should reach for a dildo. Available in many different colours, shapes and sizes, dildos are designed to provide penetrative pleasure unlike anything else.

    Although they may not rotate, vibrate or pulsate, dildos give you the kind of pleasure that you won’t get from anything electrical, so choosing the right one is key.

    When you’re starting out with dildos, all you want to do is type ‘nice dildo’ into Google and be presented with a single result which is the perfect dildo for you! Sadly, the world of dildos doesn’t work quite like that, but we’ve devised a category system which should help.

    One of the reasons why glass dildos are becoming so popular is because smooth glass plus smooth penetration equals almighty pleasure.

    Even twisted or curved glass dildos with ridges or bumps are smoother than most plastic or silicone dildos. When a little lubricant (water-based or silicone) is added to the smooth surface of glass, it becomes even more slick, making for some great fun!

    The majority of glass dildos are made from high-grade borosilicate glass, which is a durable, safe and sturdy material that is used in Pyrex jugs and oven dishes. It can be heated up in warm water or cooled down in your fridge or freezer for intense variations in temperature.

    With a mix of materials making up their body-perfect forms, caring for a sex doll can seem like a tricky task. With a little care and attention, your favourite love doll will last the distance.

    Because batteries for sex toys can have a confusing number of different names, we always use one name for each type of battery. The names we use for batteries are:

    Whether male or female, sex dolls are designed to closely match the shape and feel of a real person, making masturbation as close to sexual intercourse as you can get. Sometimes cheap sex dolls can seemingly come up short in the realism stakes. You can lock your doll away in the cupboard and write off the experience, return your doll using our 90 returns policy and opt for a more expensive lifelike sex doll or alternatively - put in a little work of your own to make the most of your purchase. After all, if sex with your partner isn’t great, there’s always room for improvement and the same is true for you and your doll.

    This guide is geared to give you some ideas on how to improve the look and feel of your sex doll. If you find your doll unattractive, then you’re less likely to enjoy them and may even face performance issues. If it feels bad to have sex with a doll, then the purpose of having bought it is entirely defeated. It is possible to upgrade your dolls using things you can pick up here at Lovehoney and this guide will show you how to transform your dud into dynamite.

    Sex toys are safe for bodily use, but they can be quite reactive when put next to alike or opposing materials. It is vital to be careful when storing your sex toys. If you mix your sex toys (particularly silicone, rubber, latex, realistic feel and jelly sex toys) you may soon discover that they start to look melted or slightly misshapen.

    We can't overstate how important it is that you store your sex toys separately if you don't want a nasty surprise the next time you reach for your favourite toy.
