Is using dildo equivalent to masturbation?

Using a dildo is equivalent to masturbation but not all use of dildo is equivalent to masturbation. If a person is using a dildo to stimulate sexual arousal, then it’s equivalent to masturbation but using dildo can also be for other reasons like:
To enhance sexual pleasure with a partner
Let’s say your partner doesn’t satisfy your sexual libido, you can resort to continuing with libido.
To explore body and sexuality
As part of a sexual plan or treatment.
