A realistic dildo is lifelike and designed to simulate an actual penis. It may be mounted as a Strap On for use on a male or female partner (for lesbian couples or for heterosexual couples using Pegging in their Dominant/submissive activities). Realistic dildos may also feature designs based on male models, such as Colts Jake Tanner Realistic Dildo.
The realistic dildo lends itself well to roleplaying scenarios. A couple can use it to simulate a threesome or a bound and blindfolded partner can try to guess if she is being penetrated by her partner or the realistic dildo. Suction dildos like the Emperor Brown can be used individually in the shower or by a couple for his or her anal penetration during intercourse.
