Just like any consumer product such as watches, blankets or shoes, dildos come in various price ranges. There are expensive, mid-range and cheap dildos.
The cheap dildos are not necessarily the least effective. In fact, they can be just as good as the more expensive varieties. It all depends on the user. Some would actually prefer the cheap dildos because the materials used provide them greater pleasure.
While not too commonly used in the West, the cheapest dildos would be the wooden phallic symbols known in many Asian and African countries. These are used primarily for religious or cultural celebrations, but practical women quickly found a better use for them – personal pleasure.
These wooden phallic symbols give true meaning to the term “woodie.” They are as hard as the hardest erection of the most masculine men. They’re easy enough to maintain. Simple soap and water will do, and they can last for the longest time depending on how the user takes care of this cheap dildo.
Western women who have qualms about using wooden dildos have other options. For those on a tight budget, there are rubber and plastic models. These are basic, no-nonsense dildos with smooth surfaces. They are much cheaper than the silicone or acrylic varieties.
Since they are tools for masturbation, there really is hardly any difference between cheap dildos and expensive dildos. Masturbation is, after all, a subjective experience. The person using the dildo depends more on her imagination to attain orgasm, and less on the tool being used.
