I like realistic toys, but until recently there weren't any large realistic body-safe silicone toys on the market. I hope that soon there are more options, because fans of realistic toys should be able to get high quality body safe toys, too.

There's a pretty wide spectrum as to how dicks can look. I can count on one hand how many real dicks I've liked. Plus people themselves...Are aesthetically boring to look at on just pure body. Faces and such can have a ton of variety. But body types and parts? Not really. Meanwhile the furry universe has near limitless variety. It's rare to find a person attractive in general for me

This is part of the reason I only own fantasy toys atm.
I'd love a realistic human toy in safe materials, although it seems a majority of the ones I have found are way too long for me. I'm also sorta picky as to what a pretty realistic dick looks like, there are very specific things I like and don't like, so it's harder for me in general just because of that. Even the smallest thing is a huge turn off with human toys for me.

I like fantasy toys, dildos and penetratables. Never tried anything that strived for realism.
It's not that I'm against realism, it's just that fantasy seems more appealing, especially since "realistic" toys don't even seem particularly realistic imo.

if I truly wanted something realistic I wouldnt be fantasizing about fucking fictional stuff
super realistic dicks are ok but it's kind of a waste when I can try out funky fun shapes instead. also it seems like most brands make them so hard its like they think you want a rock up your ass.

That's what I love about BD. Their silicone softness! Other toys are so hard. I was interested in a few Tantus models, but I've heard that their toys are quite ridged. Any other brand that comes close I'd Vixen, but all of their toys are so realistic looking. I think they have a few funky colors available though.

There's also Vamp. They have soft silicone and can pour some cool colours. SquarePeg and Silicone Nozzles have soft silicone, too, though not any cool colours.

I don't like realistic non human toys aesthetically..ones that look cartoony are a little better. Realistic human ones I don't mind the looks of mostly. Yet I'm picky. For myself realistic toys with different colored tips, long/extra thin design turn me off. Many of them with the circumsized look do nothing for me. Plus vanilla realistic insertables are often not from safe materials/lack much non-printer texture/when silicone are hard with near no flex/have tapered non prominant tips.
I've sold toys to over 17 different homes.

I actually like real penises and realistic dildos the same way I like fantasy toys. :dukeretro:
I don't have a particular taste for simplistic or abstracts dildos, but it's great that now there's a wider variety of toys for everyone's tastes. I actually only own fantasy and abstracts dildos yet, I had to return the only realistic dildo I had because it was too firm.
But I have to be honest, circumcised penises look weird, and so their dildo counterparts, but they do not repulse me either.

I read an interesting article about the stats of porn hub over this past year, and the results, all based on popular searches and most views, showed a massive shift to fantasy stuff over real life. So I guess we are now less of a niche than we thought. :wink:

Wonder if bd will realize this and go back to the more fantastical designs :0

As for me personally, I like the look of both, really. I just prefer fantasy stuff when it comes to toys because I get the real thing enough as it is already lol. Balls are weird looked ng to me still tho. Toys or real life.

I never liked the realistic toys, because personally I don't like the look of a natural penis. I've talked to several women with a range of sexualities, and I have yet to find a female that likes the look of realistic peen, and many say they don't buy dildos because all of the dildos they've seen are the realistic ones.


Well, I'm as queer as a three-dollar bill, and while I acknowledge that dicks can be funny looking, I also really like them. I have bought "realistic" looking dicks (admittedly, the bigger ones like the Jeff Stryker, Kris Lord, and Squarepeg Mel), but mostly because they were what were on offer at the time.

Sometimes I want to realistic. Not often, but sometimes.
Well, ok. There are rare occasions when I go for realistic HUMAN dildos. But with animal-inspired... i don't really have a problem with realism or fantasy colors. Sometimes I want some funky color or design and other times... I got a fantasy I can't do IRL. There's a lot of fantasies I have that I would never do for real. So the more realistic it looks, the better the fantasy works.

Now, the human penis's,,, yeah, most aren't doing the trick for me. I did get the ultimate fantasy... not so ultimate. But I did find a Vixskin Goodfella that I like. But only because... balls. Not that they are huge or anything but because they're whole, there's no flat back. Hey, score one for even more realism. Most toys with balls have a flat back because well it's easier for them to lay flat. This has whole balls but also a flat base after that. And, well, I like balls, sue me.
But it should be noted with human dildos I only really get them in a specific color... I have erm, a preference which mimics my reality.

So yes and no depending on several factors.

I'm bisexual, but the only reason I don't mind penises on real people is because of my emotional connection to them, the closeness, and the feedback of their pleasure.

I really really don't like the look of them at all, and so I do prefer my toys to be abstract.

Even my more "mainstream" ones were pretty brightly coloured. My first toy was glitter purple with a spiral raise blue, and some blue bulbs. I also had plenty of rampant rabbits, which are not that realistic.

Sadly they're not body safe, and once I tried the softness of BD toys I fell in love. Plus I love the colours BD offers it really is something else other than the more typical colours toys come in, and I really how far away they take them away from looking anything close to real.

Veins are so off putting for me.

It's why I don't like Peirce and Blaze. Since even though they're not super real, it's that little bit too close to nope with skin folds, and veins.

So BD toys that are not very real looking, really appeal to me.

I actually like the look of Peirce and Blaze. They're close, but it's like an aesthetic upgrade for the natural penis. The veins have been tastefully done to, and not looking all guawdy like the main stream realistic dildos. I think the companies put the excess veining to add texture to the toy, but I'm just not into it.

But yeah, I'm bisexual to. Back when my husband was my boyfriend, he was a little worried that I wasn't attracted to the male genitalia. He only had one gf before me, and he was still a virgin, so he didn't understand female sexuality too much then. I think he had a little fear that I was really a lesbian. But then he heard from most of our female friends who were either straight or bi say the same thing as me, that the penis looks weird, he just accepted the fact.

I adore real dicks - I'll probably gross some people out with these descriptions, but I love the silkiness of the skin, the throb of the blood in the veins, how solid and warm they feel, the overall aesthetic of how they attach to the body (though maybe I've been blessed with only encountering relatively "pretty" penises in my life). But when it comes to dildos...?

Meh.

Maybe it's because I have my fiancé and the flesh and blood thing available whenever I crave it, all the natural attractiveness of the shape with the emotional connection to top it off. But a straight-up, standard human dildo does nothing for me. It doesn't repulse me or gross me out, it just... doesn't do anything. Something like Pearce I almost get into, with the piercing and altered proportions of a human-ish shape but anymore realistic (like the Ultimate Fantasy, or the offerings by other mainstream companies) and I lose interest. I buy these toys for the fantasy aspect, to fulfill my weird little fetishes for monsters and creatures and to offer sensations standard human anatomy just can't provide. Standard, human toys - to me - feel like a subpar imitation of the actual experience.

As for realistic non-human designs and colors? Those I'm more open to. I don't have an issue with "realistic" or even the much-maligned "fleshy" color schemes with toys. In fact, a more natural look can only add to the fantasy - it makes even easier to imagine whatever crazy creature on the other end of that silicone. When it comes to animal-based designs and sculpts, I don't feel particularly strongly either way. Like all the various lifecasts and such - I've yet to see one that I actively want or would consider buying, but the degree of realism present in those doesn't squick me out either.

^^^ what they said kind of. I count myself on the asexual spectrum, so not sure how my view on dicks weighs in compared to the rest.

But human dicks have never been... appealing? to me. Like, some of them look cute I guess, but for the most part they are just kind of fleshy colored mushrooms. I wouldn't call them sexy and hoppin on isn't my first (or even second) notion. But I do find appeal in them when they are connected to someone, and the way I can make them/the person react through that.

So human dick shaped toys do... absolutely nothing for me. I could use a toothbrush holder for the same result with how hard and unyeilding most of them on the market are as well haha.

But while I don't have much sexual attraction to others, I do have a fairly active self sex drive, and my fantasies are more of the fantasy variety. I like something a bit more primal, inhuman, etc and Bad Dragon offers that. Besides that, I think they look pretty attractively, and I wont order a dick that doesn't appeal to me, even if it's supposedly good in use. For me, the fantasy/mental portion is important.

And with fantasy dicks, there is a bunch of focus on how the shape feels and what it does for you. The curves, the girth, the texture - not something you're gonna find in human land.

Plus knots. Knots are great. :stick:

But that's just my two cents!

I just really hate those two models, because the stuff they do have features I personally find off putting in both real penises, and sex toys. However I can understand if people feel they have been done tastefully compared to more "mainstream" toys. They're just really, really not for me.

I'm trying to get over Echo's balls because so many women seem to really like him, and the shaft itself looks fine. So I just think I really don't like any realistic features. The art used to be off putting to me, but that's easier to disconnect to the toy. Since I don't fantasise about it. However if the features are part of the toy, you just can't ignore it in the same way. I am hoping Echo is going to be OK, but Peirce and Blaze are a huge nope for me personally.


I can see why that would be a concern, I think the reason my partner is okay is because he knows how much I enjoy sex with him. Plus I think most of my nerve endings are geared up for penetration. So even though he knows I prefer women, he knows that I love him and are attracted to him.

I'm not put off by my partners penis in the same way as I can be repulsed by random guys. But I can have that feeling of repulsion if I see a random naked guy's penis.

It's also not just about physical features in what you like about a partner. Also my partner is really feminine, and even though he identifies as male, he has a lot of really feminine qualities, and even likes to play women in tabletop RPGs. He was praised at his university for his ability to write from a female perspective too.

But yeah, I do prefer guys with feminine traits as well when I do go for guys... I mean if a guy is really hot, then I'm like wow, I'd go there. Just overall women are more attractive to me.

But bisexuality isn't necessarily equally prefering two or more genders. Plus yeah, many women think penises are weird!

I actually like Echo's balls, they're really small and dainty. I like to play with them before and after toy sessions, and it makes the toy seem more "real" in a way with him. I always refer to my BD toys by name or by gender pronouns because of the intense detail. I feel ya on the Pearce thing, he has balls like whoa. Too much for me, but I can look passed it because the shaft looks good.
