THE SEX FILES: Erotic Toy Maker Ylva & Dite Discuss Creating the Perfect Dildo and More

Ylva & Dite are an erotic toy maker based in the Netherlands (don’t ever let it be said I don’t’ search far and wide for that which you desire), the company name derived from DITE, the goddess of love. Ylva is the wild beast of pleasure. With 100% safe design and materials, these handmade pleasure products are second-to-none and so much fun, available in dozens of color combinations not found anywhere else. The company also supplies a wide range of accessories including lubricants, toy cleaners and more, and are branching out soon to new products. I managed a long-distance connection to get the skinny

What made you think to start making dildos?

We have been looking for a new challenge within the retail market, all the time aware of the challenges with retail these days. We’ve had lots of discussions about the development of dildos, but had doubts regarding the subject (we know retail but we didn’t know this specific industry). But we were intrigued by the industry and its challenges. After research, we decided to take a jump into the deep and see if we are able to develop sex toys.

So it was a slow process to get into making dildos, get Ylva & Dite going full steam?

Yes, we started testing, trying, testing, trying and fine tuning; the process took over two years…and a lot of patience. After that time we were satisfied with the quality, the look of the dildos and thought, ‘let’s get this on the market’.

Do you ever think of branching out to making other erotic toys?

For sure. We see our dildos as the first line of products, but are currently developing buttplugs and cockrings. We are also in the early stages of developing vibrators. As we always do, we will keep fine tuning these products and keep looking for more products which are a fit for the industry. If the products fit in our story we will develop them and put them on the market. All in lots of colors, all handmade, all unique and all with Dutch quality.

What prompts the creation of a new dildo design?

There are lots of designs for dildo’s. We are inspired by our surroundings. We can get inspired by the shapes of animals, existing products, futuristic characters. When we start shaping a dildo with the inspiration in the back of our head, the main pillars for development are that the product needs to be pretty, functional, and effective.

What is the main difference, if there is one, between what you make for a woman and what you make for a man?

All our dildos can be used by both genders, therefore we provide them in all colors; it’s been our experience that men choose darker colors, women brighter colors. But next to this choice in colors you’ll see that size does matter. Men choose bigger sizes than women. Most men buying a dildo seem more experienced or like to be challenged. Women look for sizes that are more realistic to the real thing.

As you say on the site, “safety and quality” of what the toys are made out of are your top priority. Do you find you are constantly searching for ever safer materials, new designs, always on the hunt to make the product better and safer even though it’s very safe as it is?

Yes we are. The quality of the raw materials we use is checked constantly. The designs keep getting better and there is always a way to finetune your products. If we see an opportunity to finetune the product, we will.

Do you have a brick and mortar presence or strictly only sell online? Would you ever want a physical store?

We don’t have a physical store yet as we see ourselves mainly as a manufacturer. We provide the stores with our products and we don’t want to compete with them. We do have a showroom within our factory which can be used to showcase our products to clients. We’d like it if we could make it a physical store in which also end-users can touch and feel the product. The store would be more for showcasing than for selling.

What’s coming up for you? Any new designs you can tell us about?

Currently we are fine tuning our buttplugs and our cockrings. This is our main focus when it comes to designing new products. We believe the full collection of buttplugs and cockrings should be finished at the end of the year. In 2020 we will focus more on electronic sextoys like the vibrator.

What size (for men and women) seem to be the most popular?

For women we see that the swan is very popular, the size and the curve give it a great look and feel. The size of the Swan is 18.5cm. This is a realistic size for dildo’s. For men we see that the Anteros and the Helios are popular. Both have a realistic look but also have curves at the right spots. This will give a great feel when it comes to the stimulation of the prostate. The Anteros has a size of 18.5cm and the Helios is our XL model which has a size of 23cm.
