Vedo Rialto Review: Realistic Vibrating Dildo

A round of applause for Vedo: The Rialto is a superb realistic vibrating dildo. It’s both body-safe (silicone, not “jelly”!) and STRONG. This brand1 generally makes powerful vibrators, if buzzier ones, so I was hoping the Vedo Rialto would be good… But I didn’t know just how good till I nestled the Rialto’s ridge against my clit and came 15 seconds later — and kept going from there.

This VeDO Rialto review will cover its vibrating functionality and strength vs. other vibrating dildos, how realistic the Rialto dildo looks and feels, and why it’s unique among body-safe silicone toys. Skip to the end for discount code + overall ranking!

Rialto vs. Other Vibrating Dildos

I like realistic dildos a lot. A lot. But till the Vedo Rialto 7 Inch Vibrating Dildo, there haven’t been any good silicone vibrating ones — that’s tragic.

First, why is silicone so important? Bodysafe silicone doesn’t harbor bacteria over time like PVC & TPR/TPE quote-unquote “classic” realistic vibes. If you get an “Exotic Diamond” vibrator, to name one vibrating dildo example, the material’s pores will allow microorganisms to start growing, unlike hydrophobic and sanitizable (=body-safe) silicone. (Not to mention, twist-dial “multispeed vibration” toys are not strong vibrators, comparatively; and are not USB rechargeable, you have to keep buying batteries.) Others to avoid: King Cocks (toxic PVC), American Whopper vibrating dildos (also PVC), Lifelike Lover Classic realistic vibrators (TPE mislabeled as “soft plastic”), Au Naturel “Sensa Feel” dildos (also porous TPE), Doc Johnson Perfect-D (Ultraskyn = PVC and TPE), and more — all those “real feel” vibrators can literally cause infection and burning, besides being weaker than the silicone vibrators I review. The trend is toward safe silicone sex toys for good reason, and our options get better every year — as I discovered last month while unboxing the Vedo Rialto!

I want clean, safe toys that have vibration power. So before the Vedo Rialto, I had to stick bullet vibrators into Vac-u-Holed realistic dongs to make the dildo vibrating. That could be very fun, but also (1) more expensive, (2) more work to clean, (3) the vibes weren’t as strong in the dildo’s head. (The bullet vibrators didn’t reach all the way up into the soft silicone heads!).

Not so for the Vedo Rialto… I’m excited. It’s a semi-realistic dildo with two motors that echo out from the mid-shaft, and still pack a punch in Rialto’s head. Traveling through the big, pronounced corona. (Maybe I’ll just call the Rialto “Power Penis” going forward?) Let’s see Rialto compared against other powerful vibrators / dildos:

Best vibrating dildos lineup - Pillow Talk Sassy, Topher MIchels realistic lifecast silicone by Hankey's Toys with bullet vibrator, Vedo Rialto vibrating dildo, Blush Impressions N5 Impressions N4
Vibrators from left to right, with top power rated on a 10-point scale: Pillow Talk Sassy, 8.25; Hankey’s Toys Topher Michels lifecast with Point Plus bullet vibrator in base, 7.5 at bottom but 6.0 in the head; Vedo Rialto, 7.2; Blush Impressions N5 & also N4, 9.0/10.

In 2019, I’d been glad when Blush Novelties relaunched their Impressions silicone vibrating dildos — because they have a lot of power inside safe silicone too. Here’s a quick compare-contrast between the Vedo Rialto and the 5 Impressions vibrating suction cup dildos by Blush:

  • Realism: Impressions are nonphallic (= not realistic-looking)2; vs. Rialto, semi-realistic, with a realistic head for sure.
  • Suction cups: Impressions dildos have suction cups and are harness compatible; Rialto does not / is not. Honestly, though, 4/5 Impressions vibrators are too hard for me to ride comfortably, hands-free, using those suction cups. (Extra-pressure-lovers may have a different opinion.)
  • Button control: Impressions’ buttons are difficult to operate in 4 of the 5 models (push hard!) & you use one button to cycle through 10 functions (5 steady speeds + 5 patterns). The Rialto wins big here for user-friendly-ness, with easy + and – buttons intensity control, so you can decrease in power quickly. And you never have to flip through patterned rhythms in order to move back to lower steady speeds.
  • Power: Impressions vibes start strong; the Rialto is lower and rumblier at first. The Rialto also lower-powered to finish: Impressions wins the power race, about 20% stronger than the Rialto, and surpassing the Rialto’s strength around its intensity #5 of 6. So here, you have to choose whether you prefer a gentler start (Vedo Rialto), or the highest-speed finish (all Blush Impressions)!

VeDO Rialto Vibration Quality

You’ve gotta feel the Rialto’s vibrations in your hands to understand. They reverberate. Two motors, working together, putting out strong vibes.3

How do you control the Vedo Rialto? The 6 speeds x 10 functions = 60 total vibration settings! seems like a lot on paper, but you’ll figure out what power levels you enjoy once it’s in your hand. The Rialto’s button control is easy: Press the power on/off button down for 3 seconds to turn on. Then, increase/decrease intensity power with the + and – buttons. You can just stay on the steady vibes, or flip through the 9 patterns4 through quick clicks of the power button. (See a clear image of the 3-button control here.)

As a sex toy expert, I get boxes of vibrators now: “Go through these and see if any are worth carrying!” The new vibrators almost universally bore me. Like: Ugh, more inflexible rabbits that can’t possibly compete with the Nova 2; or Huh, another uninspiring “G-spotter” with no ridge/strong curve and just-OK vibrations. But with the Vedo Rialto: I was instantly impressed.

For clitoral stimulation — because you can use Rialto for either clitoral or G-spot play! — Rialto is feeling like a very good compact wand vibrator to me5 — except it’s a wand whose ridge I can rub off against. Wand massagers are the strongest vibrator category overall, so this is definitely a compliment to Rialto! The power-penis effect is perfect for me. A dick in the hand, plus strong vibrations and a three-for-one ridge texture? Yes, yes, please.

And you should know I want to talk more about Rialto’s phallic head…

Rialto & Realistic Feel

Realistic feel is a big selling point for many users, I totally get that as a phallophile. I’ll start by saying that Rialto isn’t the most real feel — but its vibrating functionality may make up for that, in the end. I’m going to start with the Rialto’s head and work downward…

🤤 It’s got three ridges that, all together, feel so good rubbing up and down against my G-spot. A classic penis-shaped head that sticks out to target and push into the G-spot. Then, the extra 2 lines so you get more pulling effect when you move this vibrating dildo. It’s awesomely fun G-spot stimulation if you like to thrust your dildo! Thrusting vibrating is better than stationary vibrating, in my book. (= My vagina, that is. 😄)

The rest of the shaft is smooth, beyond the ridges. It’s got a slight Coke-bottle figure, so it narrows mid-shaft and then expands outward toward the buttons/handle. Again, there is a curve that’s designed for Gspot stimulation — but which also makes Rialto easier to grip as a clitoral vibrator, with the bottom of the toy angling toward your hand instead of sticking straight out.

The Rialto’s hard motor core makes this a firmer toy. The silicone outside is not soft and realistic either; Vedo’s claim of “real feel softness” on the back of the Rialto box is… not exactly true. It’s not-untrue in Rialto’s head, only: Because the silicone “skin” covering the head isn’t bound to the hard core underneath, and there’s a gap. You can push your fingers into the head. A little. It’s a touch of gentleness. Like “dual density lite,” along the lines of the Fun Factory Stronic Real’s kinda-soft (but not fleshy soft) outside.

Really, the Rialto’s firm ridge makes it a force among G-spot vibrators. It’s a strong amount of pressure. The vibrating functionality in this 7 inch dildo pairs so well with the imposing realistic ridge. On my favorite vibration mode, #3, the Vedo Rialto is rum-rum-rumbling with both motors, giving strong spot vibrating.

Ultimately, if you want a “soft skin feel,” yet 100% body-safe, dildo that carries awesome vibes all throughout the toy, it does not exist yet. Rialto is the best realistic-looking vibrator we have; and dual-density silicone dildos (like my new affordable faves the Luminous line) are the most-realistic-feeling. (See my best realistic toys guide for full info.) One day, the dream may come true: lifelike realistic feel + safe material + strong vibration. In the meantime, I’m getting very satisfied by Rialto (and Sassy and Luminous Stud, all in their turns!).

Vedo Rialto over the RealCock 2 Dirk Ultra Realistic triple-density dildo‘s massive base + “floating testicles.” I can assure you, the Rialto is much easier to move, and has nice vibes — it’s simply not “fleshy” soft.

Speaking of realism, I’m really liking the “flesh tone” color selections Vedo made for for “vanilla” and “mocha” Rialto. They’re not super-white. Not like Vixen’s VixSkin “Vanilla” (IRL photos here) and the BMS Naked Addiction Dual Density, which might make you wonder: “Has this person (or their ancestors) ever seen the sun?” Instead, in Rialto, “Vanilla” (not pictured) might be called “pretty Anglo over here.” Personally, I got the Mocha one because I enjoy not-beige flesh tones. You (and by “you,” I mean “I”) might call it Dulce de Leche too.6 The Pearl Black dildo variant is solid black rather than human Black, however.

Other Rialto Dildo Vibrating Features

The Rialto’s neat box includes the USB charging cord, included to power Rialto’s rechargeable vibrations. This rechargeable dildo has slightly over 2 hours battery life per charge.

The Vedo Rialto is without a doubt my favorite realistic dildo vibrator, but a few things it is NOT. Is it harness compatible? No. Lacking a flared base, it obviously cannot be a suction cup dildo or fit in strapon harnesses. It doesn’t have a remote control, which is good because I have a bad habit of misplacing those things…

Rialto is very much a G-spot dildo, a “vibrator for women,” but should it be counted among prostate toys? For anal play, Rialto’s 7 inch full insertable length is unlikely to slip all the way inside your rectum and round up into the sigmoid bend of the colon,7 but… someone, somewhere, might manage that if they have experience with depth play — so technically I wouldn’t classify Rialto as a prostate massager. (But I would use it on a partner, personally, if he wanted a strong & firm prostate massage.)

You can use any sex lube with Rialto’s smooth silicone, though silicone lubricant is tougher to clean off. Your easiest bet is a thick waterbased lube, especially a clean, glycerin-free one. Like any body-safe silicone sex toy, you do not need to use toy cleaner unless you don’t have access to running water and soap, and toy storage is worry-free because the Rialto’s silicone won’t degrade with time; it can touch other silicone vibrators, no problem.

Rialto Recap & Ranking

I’m struggling to find anything negative about the Vedo Rialto. Wait, here we go: It doesn’t have a flared base, so you cannot use it as a strapon dildo. (OK w/ me, I’m using it on myself too much to find time for that 😄)

Seriously, the Rialto by Vedo Toys is a stand-out. A hole, filled. We’ve needed better vibrating silicone dildos for too damn long. So good, I’m having a whirlwind affair with Rialto still; abandoning all my other vibrators except the Pillow Talk Sassy (best of the G-spot vibrators), the We-Vibe Nova 2 (queen of rabbit vibrators), and my 2 favorite air-pulse clit suction stimulators (because they offer something different than vibration). But it’s not all hole-filling: the powerful vibration makes the Rialto superb as a clit vibrator too, like a wand massager with a phallic head. I’d rank it a 7.2 out of 10 for vibration strength, and a 9.25 / 10 overall product rating for its feel, safety, and orgasmic impact.

So this is a pretty strong vibrator, and a fairly firm G-spotter. If you need a first-time vibrator / don’t currently own any strong sex toys, it may not be up your alley. Also keep in mind that it is harder than an actual erection, so anyone seeking exceptional realism should consider non-vibrating, dual-density silicone first.

Other than that… Do you want a power tool that resembles a penis? Then the Rialto is your dude, with its powerful vibration settings and sweet spot stimulation.

NOTES

  1. Technically, written VēDO, which is extremely frustrating to type. Y’all really needed to add a macron to the brand name??
  2. Except the Impressions N5 is very abstractly phallic. Not coincidentally, the one I ended up using the most.
  3. Vibration speeds #2 and #3 really roll around. That’s out of 6 total steady vibration intensities: Rialto has 6 speed options for all 10 vibration functions (and 1 function out of the 10 is steady vibration; the other 9 are pulsing, rippling, and escalating patterns of vibration). Speed #3 is a favorite of mine: it’s strong but not too high-pitched / buzzy. Vibration speeds #4 and 5 kinda blend together; and speed #6 bumps it up.
  4. Another cool thing? The thrust-like imitation of two vibration patterns. Usually I ignore patterned vibes and go for steady ones, consistent ones that keep it going so I can orgasm consistently too. But the Rialto’s functions #3 and #4 make full use of Rialto’s two separate motors. The bottom motor is rolling along nice and strong, while the motor in the head is pulsing. So that the vibration feels like it’s thrusting in and out. That’s sweet, and something I’ve never experienced in a vibrator before. (Let’s not count the Fun Factory Sundaze, an underwhelming experience. I could tell you that I use the Rialto’s vibration patterns all the time, but, full disclosure, I only use them for a couple minutes, enjoy the pulsing buildup during some (but definitely not all) masturbation sessions, and really do still stick to the Rialto’s consistent, non-patterned vibration intensities to actually reach orgasm.)
  5. I mean, it’s not the Lovense Domi, that thing is 💥 for such a small toy. Strongest rechargeable wand vibrator I own! But it needs lower speeds! You gotta be ready for it!
  6. Some people complain that food names are offensive for flesh-tone colors. I disagree. I love food, and I love sex too, and I see no problem here. You can call me Macadamia and eat me, if I like you. 😛
  7. Located approximately 7 inches inside the butt, where the rectum meets the second sphincter, that curves and turns into the colon. Anal beads need to have a removal loop, and every butt plug should be safely flared, to avoid the need for an embarassing emergency medical extraction. If you’re interested in anal vibrators, I would recommend Vedo’s similarly powerful Bump Plus with Remote Control Anal Plug. Also see All Male Sex Toys’ guide to anal and prostate stimulation!
