The best inflatable dildos 2021

#1 Inflatable suction cup dildo by XR Brands

You’re going to love how this inflatable dildo grows inside you when you turn this 6-inch dildo into an 8-inch dildo while it’s inside you.

It’s made of brown phthalate-free PVC and the pumping is done with a squeeze ball pump that’s attached to the underside of the balls.

This makes it perfect for sitting on while you pump it up as you go and crave more and more size.

This is what I like:

  • Suction cup inflatable dildo
  • Inflates the entire shaft
  • Expands both length and girth
  • Very easy to use and adjust
  • cheap

What I don’t like:

  • Not very realistic looking
  • A little soft when not pumped
  • Made of PVC

Inflatable suction cup dildo conclusion

This is one of only a few inflatable suction cup dildos and the one I prefer over other styles of inflatable dildos. A suction cup style dildo is perfect for solo masturbation and you avoid the tube and pump flapping around when you use it.

Another great thing about this one is the fact the it inflates the entire thing and not just a single area of the shaft which some others do.

Just make sure you can handle it and use plenty of water-based lubrication.

I recommend the inflatable dildo from XR Brands if you want a budget friendly inflatable dildo.

#2 Huge inflatable dildo

The Ram 12-inch inflatable dildo is quite large and it gets huge once pumped to the max.

You can inflate it all the way to 4-inch in diameter which should be enough for you unless you’re in the 0.01% of users who crave for more.

It’s made of phthalate-free latex and you can get it in both black and beige colors.

It does inflate all the way from the base to the head of the dildo.

This is what I like:

  • Huge inflatable dildo
  • Two color options
  • Inflates all the way from base to head

What I don’t like:

  • Made of Latex
  • It really wants to get out when you inflate it

The Ram 12-inch inflatable dong conclusion

I really wish they would make products like this in silicone but I guess that it would break or simply be too hard to pump up.

This is the perfect product if you want to get rammed with a massive dildo that can get so thick inside you that you want.

I recommend the Ram 12-inch inflatable dong if you want to expand your vagina or ass beyond anything natural.

#3 Inflatable knot dildo

This Inflatable knot dildo from Lovehoney is made from silicone (We need more of that) and measures 6-inches in length.

The length does not change when inflated, but the girth at the front of this thing expands like crazy!

You can enjoy it’s normal 4.75-inch girth all the way to a crazy 11-inch girth, all by using the included ball-pump.

This is what I like:

  • High-quality material use
  • Inflatable knot dildo
  • Crazy big girth growth

What I don’t like:

  • A little too short
  • Hard to hold on to it when inflated
  • Might inflate unevenly

Inflatable knot dildo conclusion

I love that they spend the extra money and used silicone instead of other cheaper materials.

But I feel like they cheaped out on size… I wish they would have made it an inch longer and with a wider base for a better grip. The thing is that you get a hole lot of friction when you inflate it inside yourself so moving it back and forth require a bigger grip base.

Other than that, it’s a great knot dildo that can grow to Insane thickness.

I recommend the inflatable knot dildo from Lovehoney if you’re into knot dildos and good quality.

How does an inflatable dildo work?

An inflatable dildo has an expandable chamber inside which is connected to a tube and a pump.

The pump has a valve the lets air in but not out which allows it to fill up the chamber inside the dildo which makes it grow.

You can deflate it by pressing a button on the valve which releases the air and it goes back to its normal size.

You can adjust the size of the dildo by adding or releasing air from it.

Inflatable dildos vs. normal dildos

I’ve written a comprehensive guide to dildos here and know what’s up and down with the different products. You should check it out if I’ve scared you away from getting an inflatable one.

Let’s take a look at some of the pros and cons of the different styles of dildos.

Inflatable dildos

Pros:

  • Expand your holes
  • Build up tightness during masturbation
  • Ability to adjust to the perfect size
  • Great for anal training

Cons:

  • Very few options
  • No/or very limited vibrating options
  • The pump/tube is flapping around during use
  • More expensive

Normal dildos

Pros:

  • 1000’s of options
  • More materials can be used
  • Cheaper
  • No tube/pump hanging off it

Cons:

  • You need several sizes to gradually expand
  • Not ideal for anal or fisting training

There are lots of pros and cons of each style of dildo but remember you’re not limited to one style only. It’s always more fun with more different sex toys to explorer your own or your sex-partners body with.

Ways to enjoy your new huge inflatable dildo

  • Solo sitting – The first product on my list of the best inflatable dildos is ideal for sitting on and gradually work your way up in size as you get closer to climax.
  • Solo – Use it as a normal dildo and pump is bigger and bigger while you use it.
  • Vagina or anal expander – This is where an inflatable dildo really starts to shine, simply put it in and slowly pump it bigger and bigger. You can get inflatable butt-plugs that you can sit on if you want to do long sessions.
  • BDSM – Some of the dildos can get really big and painful if you and/or your sex-partners are into that kind of play.

There are other ways to enjoy them, don’t let this list limit you, use your imagination and explorer your own or others bodies.

Inflatable dildo FAQ

A: This does depend on what you’re going to use it for, but if it’s for simple solo play then get your usual size. It’s much more important to get one with the feature set that you like.

A: I would always recommend silicone, but silicone is not super stretchy and it’s hard to make a dildo that expands evenly when you inflate it. So, you’re left with more expandable materials like latex and PVC.

Just make sure you buy ones without phthalates; all major brands don’t use it so stick with that.

A: Use a thick water-based lube, this will ensure that it doesn’t evaporate too quickly.

The materials used in inflatable dildos is by nature not very easy to make very details hence the reason for them looking nothing like a real cock.

I’ve made a guide to realistic looking dildos if you prefer that.

Final thought about inflatable dildos

Inflatable dildos are very versatile sex toys that can be used in a lot of different ways. It’s just a shame that the options are few and far between and most of them are made of poor-quality materials.

I’ve talking to some people in the sex toy manufacturing industry and they say that it’s about to change. The problem is that most high-quality sex toys are made from silicone, but that’s not ideal for inflatable sex toys.

But you still have some decent options right now that I’m sure you going to enjoy.

I recommend the inflatable suction cup dildo from XR Brands if you want a good product for a good price.
