Couldn’t pick a dual density sex toy out of a line up? You’re in good company.

For one, ‘dual density’ is an umbrella category that encompasses many types of toys, not just one single type of sex toy.

Secondly, you’d be hard pressed to identify a dual density sex toy by sight alone, as this category of sex toy has got less to do with the visual aesthetics of a product and more to do with the mind-blowing sensations it can deliver!

To find out what makes dual density sex toys so damn irresistible, read on.

What is a dual density sex toy?

What makes a sex toy dual density you may ask – well, the clue is in the name. Dual density sex toys combine two distinct types of density. Your toy will typically have two distinguishable layers, an inner core and an outer layer.

The two layers often mean that dual density sex toys have more girth to offer than their single density counterparts.

The inner core will be firm, and the outer layer will be smooth and satisfying to the touch. In order to achieve this silky feel, most dual density toys you will find on the market will be made from silicone.

The benefits of dual density sex toys

If realism is what you seek, then dual density sex toys are right up your alley!

The smooth outer layer of your dildo or vibrator is designed to mimic soft skin, while the firm inner core works to replicate the feeling of a rock-hard erection. This rigid core means the lucky user can enjoy intense targeted stimulation if they should so wish.

Some people who dislike single density dildos end up being fans of dual density models, and this is largely because dual density dildos tend to have more give around the tip of the shaft.

This information is all very well and good, but what do dual density sex toys look like in the wild? Well, this author recently got to grips with two exceptional dual density toys with the selfless goal of informing this article. Ok, my motivations weren’t entirely selfless, but can you blame me? Get a load of these toys and then try telling me you wouldn’t jump at the chance to include them in your collection.

Lifelike Lover Classic Dual Density Ultra Realistic Dildo

The Lifelike Lover Class Dual Density Ultra Realistic Dildo is 8 inches of smooth, authentic gratification.

Fans of realistic, flesh-toned dildos will be pleased to see that the Lifelike Lover features both veins and balls, as well as a mighty suction cup for thrilling hands-free or harness-based play. I don’t tend to gravitate towards anatomically inspired sex toys, but with its silky-smooth outer layer and its stiff inner core, the Lifelike Lover was definitely appealing to my primal nature.

Initially, the whole ‘8 inches’ thing was a bit intimidating, but I was pleased to discover the Lifelike Lover has an insertable length of 6.5 inches (which is more my speed). This dildo was also very flexible, which gave me instant peace of mind.

I was sceptical about the strength of the suction cup, but I am happy to report that it defied my expectations, sticking securely to a variety of surfaces. I did not use the Lifelike Lover for anal play, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t!

Happy Rabbit Realistic Dual Density Rechargeable Rabbit Vibrator

For those who dislike realistic-looking dildos, but still crave that lifelike sensation, the Happy Rabbit Realistic Dual Density Rabbit Vibrator is the answer!

Not everyone is down with flesh-toned phallic toys, and this cheerful, hot pink Happy Rabbit is right down the other end of the spectrum. While the head and shaft exhibit some anatomical realism, the iconic rabbit, complete with its famous ears, really made this girl feel right at home.

The two buttons are simple to use, which is great because the last thing you want is to feel like you have to reprogram a spaceship just to get your rocks off. There are 15 different functions (that’s 3 ear vibration speeds, 3 shaft speeds and 9 vibration patterns) so I was spoilt for choice.

The soft silicone gives this Happy Rabbit such a luxury, decadent feel. The shaft, with a circumference of 5.25 inches, certainly felt girthy and a generous amount of lube served to further enhance the rabbit’s good vibrations.
