A dilation kit is essentially a set of graduated shapes that slowly increase in size so that you can get acquainted with penetration at a pace that works for your body. While dilators can be used for anyone needing a variety of different sized insertables or dildos, dilation sets are also used following vaginoplasties for gender confirmation surgery. Exercising the vaginal walls by gently introducing insertable shapes prevents atrophy of the walls and muscles surrounding the vaginal canal. Because dilation is a daily necessity for some, it’s important that you like the kit you’re using! Vibrating dilators can make insertion easier, but the non-vibrating shapes can always be paired with a vibrator as well. And as always, lube will help reduce friction!
