Vaginal Dilators

Updated: FEBRUARY 10, 2021

A vaginal dilator is a device that is commonly used to stretch the inner vaginal area. Dilators can be used in an erotic or medical context.

These devices are usually available in different sizes to enable someone to start off with a smaller one before moving on to a larger dilator.

Dilators have been known to intensify orgasms by rendering the vaginal walls more elastic and responsive.

In some cases, these devices are used to treat conditions such as vaginismus or eliminate penetrative pain after cancer. They are also recommended to people who experience bodily changes from menopause.

A vaginal dilator can be used to reduce other conditions such as the involuntary contractions of the pelvic muscles. People who experience penetration difficulties can also use dilators to slowly and gradually render the vaginal canal more elastic while increasing sensation during sex.

Dilators are made from various materials such as PVC, rubber, steel, and plastic. While some designs are textured, most dilators are smooth to facilitate penetration. Since they increase sensation, they are commonly used as sex toys.
