Firmness Guide

TLDR: We generally recommend starting with Hard for smaller toys, and Medium or Soft for larger toys.

RedFox Toys offers a variety of different toy models in different hardnesses to accommodate a wide variety of tastes and preferences. Trying to decide what firmness is best can be a little overwhelming, so here’s a rundown with general information about the firmness options we have!

We offer Soft, Medium, and Hard as solid firmness options on our dildos. Choosing one of these options means that the entire toy will be cast in a single uniform firmness.

  • Soft (sometimes referred to as “3 firmness”) is the most yielding firmness we have available for dildos. It compresses and bends very easily.
  • Medium (sometimes referred to as “5 firmness”) is the middle ground of our firmness options. It's somewhat more difficult to compress than 3 firmness, but does not bend as much on its own. Some models will still have difficulty standing on their own (due to top-heaviness) but most are more stable than in Soft firmness.
  • Hard (sometimes referred to as "8 firmness") is the hardest firmness that we have available. It is difficult to compress; it springs back to its original shape very quickly when bent and released. In general, it is very unyielding.

A good rule of thumb for selecting firmness is to look at proportions of toys if you are interested in them standing on their own. Models that have a very slender shaft or a large amount of space behind the knot usually will not stand on their own regardless of firmness.
