Metal dildos are an underrated type of sex toy that many have never tried or even considered. This is partially because of the fact that metal dildos are reasonably uncommon, but they're actually amazing!
Similar to glass dildos, metal dildos are super smooth and make any intimate insertion really comfortable. You can experiment with temperature play, hit the g-spot just right, enjoy the firmness and sensations that the added weight creates, and they can be completely sterilised. Plus they're great for the planet!

So what are the desirable differences that sets metal material apart from the rest?
Metal or stainless steel dildos are sought after by experienced users. This is because of the super intense experience that this material enables. Metal dongs usually pack more weight than realistic dildos for example. This means that upon insertion the weight can pull down or up depending on what positioning your currently in. Make the most of gravity and try out both! When dildos are angled they may stimulate the g-spot or hug the vaginal walls a bit tighter. The greater weight however means their not recommended for use with a strap-on or any dildo strap.

Here are some great reasons why metal dildos are so great...
The g-spot is located two inches inside the vagina on the front wall, behind the pelvic bone. Applying firm, consistent pressure to the g-spot can lead to incredible orgasms and even squiriting, and specialised g-spot sex toys help to stimulate it. A metal dildo has enough firmness to be able to stimulate this area extremely well. Lewand Arch$139.98Shop Now
Some metal dildos can be inserted partially into the anus, providing they have a big bulb or handle to prevent them from slipping in too far and disappearing. Just ensure that you’ve got a firm grip on the other end so it doesn't go in further than welcome. Take this seriously! Read our guide about what to be aware of before using a dildo anally.

One aspect that metal dildos boast is temperature play, which is concept that is mostly associated with glass dildos or certain lubricants. Temperature play involves either warming or cooling down your toy by submerging it in hot or cold water. Metal is very temperable, which is great for playing with variations of nerve tingling sensation.
However, users should be careful with how hot or cold their toy is. If it's been basking in the windowsill on a hot summer's day, it's probably worth letting it cool down before things get freaky. Considering their going to be near some very delicate areas, always discuss with your partner what temperatures they are okay with and what is too extreme. Read our guide on how to get started with temperature play.
Perfect for beginners
Although metal doesn't appear to be the most friendly material at first glance, its cleanliness, smoothness and comfort will rid any worries you may have originally had. Your perception of this material will change from a terrifying trinket to a tempting trophy that’s discreetly standing on the mantelpiece. Metal dildos enable you to really explore what feels good for you and hit all the right spots.
Kink and visual arousal
As mentioned previously, metal can seem intimidating. However, for some this a welcome kink. Inserting something into your body that feels taboo provides visual arousal and heightens the incoming sensation. That's why users sometimes just hold it during foreplay. Simply rubbing the metal on the body of their partner to set the tone for a raunchy session. Lewand Bow$139.98Shop Now
Easy to clean and sterilise
Sex toys vary in terms of how easy they are to clean. Most require a generous helping of sex toy cleaner, a quick wipe down and you’re ready to go.
