The terms dildo and vibrator are often used interchangeably, but there are some key differences between these adult toys. In particular, dildo refers to phallic-inspired sex toys that do not contain any mechanical or moving parts. In contrast, vibrators, as suggested by the name, vibrate.

There are pros and cons to both options, and you may want to have a few of each in your arsenal. However, if you're just starting to build your collection by shopping at Club X or a similar shop, here are some signs you may want to choose a dildo.

1. You Don't Want to Deal With Batteries or Electricity

The traditional vibrator is an electric device that plugs into the wall, but over the years, these devices have evolved to be primarily battery operated. If you don't want to worry about finding an outlet or dealing with the disappointment of dead batteries, you may want to opt for a dildo instead.

2. You Want to Rely on Your or Your Partner's Movements

The batteries in a vibrator help it to move at a variety of speeds that can be quite pleasurable for many users. If you want those motions to happen effortlessly or if you want to hit a speed that is faster than you can manage on your own, you may want to choose a vibrator.

However, if you prefer to take things at your or your partner's own speed, you may want to opt for a dildo. Some people find this approach to be a bit more natural, and others simply like the challenge of setting their own pace.

3. You Want to Clean Your Toy in the Dishwasher

Cleaning your toys helps to remove germs and can even make the toys last longer. However, you have to wash vibrators by hand. If you want to make things easier on yourself, you may want to choose a dildo that you can put in the dishwasher. You can safely put stainless steel and silicone dildos in the dishwasher. You can even boil these toys if you want. In contrast, you cannot submerge or dishwash any vibrators due to their electrical components.

4. You Like to Use a Harness

Sometimes referred to as a strap-on, a harness sits around your pelvis and holds a dildo. Men, women and non-binary folks often like the ease of using harnesses in a range of sexual situations, but as a general rule of thumb, dildos work better in harnesses than vibrators.

If you want to try a harness, you may want to choose a dildo. Vibrators can basically shake themselves out of a harness. Note that you need to make sure the harness is compatible with the dildo you choose in terms of shape and style. You may want to purchase an all-in-one kit to ensure compatibility.
