Dilators are basically a graduated set of shapes that can be inserted into either the vagina or the butt to help you feel at ease with penetration. Dilation sets can also be used following vaginoplasties for gender confirmation surgery. Because dilation is a daily necessity for some, it’s important that you like the kit you’re using! Vibrating dilators can definitely make insertion easier, but non-vibrating and anal dilators can always be paired with a vibrator for added sensation. A little lube can't hurt either!
