Etymology 1[edit]

Unclear; possibly an alteration of Italian diletto (delight) or English diddle; compare the use of dildo2, like diddle, as a nonsense syllable in often sexual songs. Compare the spelling dil doul, found in e.g. The Maids Complaint for want of a Dil Doul, a song in the library of Samuel Pepys.

An assortment of dildos.
A woman with a dildo on an Ancient Greek vase from 490 B.C.E..

Noun[edit]

dildo (plural dildos or dildoes)

  1. An artificial phallus (penis) for sexual use.
  2. (derogatory) An idiot, a bore.
    • 1984, Alex Cox, Repo Man, spoken by Otto Maddox (Emilio Estevez):
      I take back cars from dildos who don't pay their bills. Cool huh?
    • 1991, Stephen Fry, The Liar, p. 22:
      ‘Thompson?’ Heydon-Bayley had shrieked. ‘But he's a complete dildo, surely?’¶ ‘I like him,’ said Adrian. ‘He's unusual.’¶ ‘Graceless, you mean. Wooden.’
  3. (derogatory, vulgar, slang) Any device or implement.
    • 2019, Justin Blackburn, The Bisexual Christian Suburban Failure Enlightening Bipolar Blues, page 43:

    • 1910, Forrest Shreve, “The coastal deserts of Jamaica”, in The Plant World: An Illustrated Monthly Journal of Popular Botany, volume 13, pages 129-130:
      The commonest and most conspicuous of the cacti is the "dildoe" (Cereus Swartzii), a columnar form growing to as much as 20 feet in height, a plant the gross physiology of which is probably very similar to that of the sahuaro (Camegiea gigantea).
