Best Small Dildos

Written by: Angela Watson | Updated: July 8th, 2021

When I first started experimenting with dildos and sex toys, I didn’t jump into the largest products on the market or even look at the unusual products like dog knots or dragon dildos. I just wanted something small and simple that could go into my vagina and simulate penetration.

I have to say, this is what makes small dildos so great. I still use my small dildos today as some days I just want a simple more relaxed masturbation session without worrying about shoving something large inside of me.

At the same time, these small dildos are fantastic for people who are new to the sex world and are looking to try toys out.

In this review, I’m going to be looking at a few of the most popular small dildos out there and talking about what they offer and how you can use them. Whether you are experienced or not, there is a lot you can learn about small dildos, so don’t throw them away just yet if you feel it’s time to move on to bigger and better things.

Why Should You Use Small Dildos?

I mentioned the main reasons above, but I’m going to elaborate a little more to help paint a better picture. If you’ve been reading some of the other articles on my website, you’ve probably seen me talk about some of the largest and most obscure dildos out there.

These are things that are great for experienced users as not only are they mentally prepared for using the dildo, but their vagina is also capable of handling these things.

I totally understand that not everyone is looking for a massively long dildo or one that is quite girthy. They instead are looking for something that can introduce them into the world of sex toys in a slow and comfortable manner. This is where small dildos come in.

These are marketed specifically to help out those ladies and men who are looking for something to insert into their bodies, but want to do so in a relaxed manner. Small dildos can still give you a ton of pleasure and can still help you reach awesome orgasms, you just need to get the right techniques down.

Bigger doesn’t always mean better either. I’ve had sex with a few men in my life, some with large penises, and some with smaller penises. The saying it’s true, it’s about how you use it. I’ve been satisfied much better by men with smaller penises because they know what they are doing and they know how to make it a good time for me. If you have this mindset that a bigger dildo is going to give you a better orgasm, then I’m sorry to say that you are simply wrong.

The other reason why you’d want a small dildo is to simply give your vagina a break. There are days where I’ve either had a lot of rough sex or been using a large toy and my vagina simply says it’s had enough. It’s tough to listen to it though, especially when your body is crying out for more pleasure. 

Small dildos are a way to really target the sweet spots of your vagina without spreading it apart too much. When I said earlier to keep your small dildos, I mean it as you’re going to have a few days where you are really craving them. Now that I’ve covered the main reasons as to why you would want to use small dildos, let’s start talking about the products shall we.

Top 6 Best Small Dildos

#1. Doc Johnson The Slim Silicone Dildo - Best Overall Small Dildo

I still have my Doc Johnson Slim Silicone Dildo and I plan on keeping it around for as long as I live. There are plenty of reasons as to why I love this thing and list it as the best small dildo on the list.

For starters, it’s made of silicone. Silicone is completely body safe so you don’t have to worry about any infections or problems when inserting it into your vagina. It’s 6 inches in length so it’s not too small, but it’s not too large either.

The girth of the dildo is 3.5 inches and I find that’s a nice number. It’s still going to give you a good pleasurable masturbating experience if you have been using dildos for a while, and it’s not gonna fill you with a ton of pain if you are new.

The dildo can also be used for both vaginal and anal play, allowing everyone to find some use for it. It allows you to test the waters and discover your sexuality in a way that is fun and not too intrusive.

Overall, that is why I have to say this dildo is my favorite. It’s a great toy for those of you who are looking to learn more about sex toys, but it also has a ton of different uses if you have been using dildos for a while.


#2. Lifelike Lover Dildo 6in - Best Realistic Small Dildo

While the Doc Johnson small dildo is great, the one thing it doesn’t do is have a realistic look to it. Design plays an important role and many people go out and buy a dildo simply based on how it looks. If realism is a thing for you, you are going to enjoy the Lifelike Lover small dildo.

While the dildo is 6” in length, it has an insertable length of 5”, once again a nice small amount that is great for beginners.

Because the dildo is realistic looking, it’s going to have the defined head and tip that a penis has, and this actually helps pleasure you when you are inserting it in and out of your vagina.

If a penis feels good inside of you, it makes sense to design a product that looks and feels exactly like one.

The other thing I loved about this dildo was how flexible it was. When I was using it, I was able to easily bend the shaft and get it into any angle I wanted.

This made it incredibly easy to hit my G-spot. If you are looking for anal play, that bending ability is going to be your best friend. Hitting the P-spot is going to be easy with this small dildo and it is going to feel amazing.

Once again, this is a small dildo that is great for beginners as it goes for a realistic design and small size to help them ease into sex toys. Make sure you lube this thing up before you dive in.


#3. Lelo Ella Double Sided Dildo - Best Versatile Small Dildo

I have always loved Lelo products, so when I saw this double sided small dildo, you know I had to buy it to try it out myself. It has 5 inches of insertable length which does put it on the small end. But oh boy, does it pack a punch.

The main selling point of this dildo is that you can use both ends to get the best masturbation experience possible.

The first end is going to have a flatter tip, this is going to allow you to gently massage your G-spot and deliver ways of pleasure into yourself.

This end of the small dildo is not about power and force, but instead delicacy, finding the right stroke, and finding the right location. Once you have gotten the right angle on this thing, you are going to be moaning and screaming for more.

On the other side of this small dildo, you have an end with a straighter tip. If you are looking for sheer power and thrusting, this is the end that you are going to want to use. 

It is going to satisfy you and your vagina as you pull it in and out. The versatility of this dildo is amazing and I had to put it on the list for this reason.

The final thing I have to mention about the Lelo Ella is the look and design of it. It comes in a nice smooth finish that looks feminine and classy. The clean look makes it easy to store, and people might not even realize it’s a sex toy when they first look at it. Just another reason as to why I love this product.

Note: The Lelo Ella is currently sold out on the US Lelo website. There are several similar G-spot vibrators available on their website. I recommend the Gigi 2. You can use our coupon code "DRCLIMAX" for the best price! 


#4. Rookie Vibrating Silicone Dildo - Best Small Dildo for Beginners

This is one of the larger dildos on the list in length, coming in at 7”, but it has a small diameter of 1.25”. This makes it the perfect dildo for beginners as they have a lot of room to work with inserting the dildo, but don’t have to worry about their vagina being spread to a level where it becomes uncomfortable.

The slim design of this small dildo is the main reason why I have this listed as the best dildo for beginners. You can work into things at your own pace and really find the rhythm that works for you. I almost forgot to mention as well that, as the name implies, The Rookie Vibrating Silicone Dildo comes with a built-in vibrator as well.

If your hands are tired, or you simply just want to go on a more relaxing masturbating experience, turn the vibrator on and move it around inside your vagina to find the right spot.

The realistic tip as well makes it feel like you are actually have sex. Overall, if you are looking for a small dildo that is going to introduce you to the world of sex toys and give you a bit of vibration as well, you are going to want to get this product.


#5. VixSkin Slimline Realistic Dildo - Most Realistic Small Dildo

Now I know I have another product listed as the best realistic small dildo, but I have to say this one hands down is the most realistic.

Most realistic doesn’t always mean better, though. If you are into ultra realism you are definitely going to love this small dildo, however some might be a little put off by the design.

When I say ultra realistic, I mean ultra realistic, and this dildo delivers when it comes to looking and feeling like a penis. 

Once you have inserted it into your vagina, you’re going to get waves of pleasure everywhere and overall you’re going to have a great time. While it might not be a beginner friendly dildo, it sure packs a punch and I loved the pleasure that it gave me.


#6. Siren Vibrating Silicone Dildo

The final small dildo that I want to talk about today is the Siren Vibrating Silicone Dildo. This is very similar to The Rookie in terms of size and girth. When comparing the two, it’s actually slightly shorter, which works out for beginners if they want something that doesn’t penetrate them as much.

What I enjoyed about the Siren small dildo was that it did have a curved design to it, which really allowed me to easily navigate it through my vagina. That curve really helped me hit my G-spot and once I turned the vibrations on, I was loving every minute of it.

When it came to looking at the girth and length of this dildo, I was left wanting a little more, but I understand that I’ve been using toys for years now. This is a toy that is best marketed to beginners, so if you are expecting a girthy dildo, this is not going to be your product.

That being said, there is something quite nice about the vibrations that the dildo can provide. I was impressed with what it had to offer and would definitely say this deserves an honorable mention on the list.

While the Rookie strives to be a semi-realistic looking dildo, this one is not, so if you are a beginner who doesn’t want to have a penis dildo laying around the house, you might want to consider this product.


What To Look For When Buying a Small Dildo 

All of this information is great and all, but if you are looking at small dildos, there is a good chance that you are new to the sex toy scene and are unsure of what to look for when buying one. I’ll give you a quick rundown of things you should look for when buying a dildo, to make selecting one that much easier:

Size - Simply put, you want to get one that you are comfortable with. One that is too small won’t stimulate you as much as a larger one could, but a large one could be painful if you aren’t ready for it.

Material - Please make sure that your small dildo is 100% body safe. The last thing you want to be doing is buying a product that is going to cause damage and harm down the road.

Price - In a perfect world, you could buy whatever you wanted, but that’s not the case. Find something that’s within your budget please.

Cleaning - Find a product that is going to be easy to clean. Fortunately, most dildos are non-porous, meaning you can clean them very easily with soap and water.

To Vibe or Not to Vibe - Some people love getting a vibrating dildo while others like to do the work on their own. There is nothing wrong with either, just make sure you know what you are buying. Vibrating dildos will generally cost more so don’t spend the money if you aren’t planning on utilizing the features. Also, some vibrating dildos are waterproof while others are not. Please check the specs before you attempt to bring it into the shower.

Cleaning Tips

With most dildos, you are going to be able to clean them with basic soap and water. If your small dildo is silicone, then congratulations as you have the easiest toy to clean.

You can either use soap and water, stick it in the dishwater, or boil it for five minutes or so. If your silicone dildo does have a vibrator inside, please don’t boil it, you’re going to ruin the vibrator inside.

With other materials such as plastics, glass, and stainless steel, I typically just give it a good clean with soap and water. It’s generally my preferred method of cleaning anyways, as I only boil silicone after I have been using it for a few weeks to give it a little deeper of a clean.

Closing Thoughts

There is something for everyone on this list, whether you are new to sex toys or have been using them for years. Small dildos are not just for beginners, as the right person can make these things feel amazing during play. Read up about each of them and see what you like best. I love my small dildos and hope you can learn to love them as well.
