The purpose of a dildo is really for insertion, either anally or vaginally. You can brush up on your oral skills or you can brush up on your hand job skills. Some dildos have a suction cup base so you can put it on the wall have a good time or you're able to put it in a harness for a strap-on.
The lube that you wanna use depends on the type of toy you own. With a silicone toy you will want to use a water-based lube or oil-based lube. You will not want to use silicone lube on a silicone toy as it breaks down the material.
To wash your toy simply clean it with soap and warm water and let air dry.
Remember to be kind to yourself and get it on!!
