Owning one of those modern-day dildos or other sex toys is pretty cool. But if your finances are not too good or if you are not happy with the size or the material of the dildo, guess what, you can make your own dildo.

That’s right, there are a lot of different ways to get creative with the stuff that you might already have at home. However, there are some guidelines and precautionary measures that you shouldn’t ignore just for the sake of sexual pleasures.

Let us tell you more about making your DIY dildo.

Safety Comes First

Whether you’re having sex with your partner, a total stranger, using regular sex toys or being creative with random items to use them as DIY sex toys, it is important that you do it safe. Here are some important guidelines before you go on making your own dildo at home:

Always Use a Condom

Using a condom will protect you against toxins and bacteria that can cause minor or severe infections. Regardless of what particular item you’re gonna put inside your vagina or butthole, it’s always a good idea to cover it up with a condom.

Use a Lot of Lube

Lube will help eliminate friction or irritation while you’re having a pleasurable moment with yourself. It will also prevent the condom from breaking. Go for one of the water-based lubes as they are more compatible and provide extra glide during sex play.

No Breakable Items

This is something that you can’t ignore. Whatever DIY dildo you’re using, make sure it is an unbreakable item that is preferably made of plastic or rubber. Never use anything that is made of glass, wood or any other breakable material.

Safe and Clean Materials

Regardless how clean or smooth it may look, always make sure to wash any item that you will be inserting in your vagina, butthole or your mouth. It’s a good idea to Google the safety of an item before using it as your DIY dildo.

Length is Important

You do not want anything to be left inside your vagina or butthole, and you end up with a freak accident, right? Whichever DIY didlo you decide to go ahead with, it should have enough length so that a good part of it remains outside at any given time.

Preferably, one-fourth of any item that you’re putting inside, should remain outside.  

Homemade Dildo Ideas

Here are some of the best DIY dildo options that you can try out at home without much of a hassle:

Cucumber

If you haven’t done this before, this might feel weird initially. Putting edibles inside your vagina is something that might take a little time to get used to. Although there are no safety concerns as long as you cover a smooth, ripe cucumber in a condom before having a self-love session.

Banana

A ripe banana can be another great choice for a DIY dildo. Just like the cucumber, wrap it up in a condom, put on some lube and enjoy an orgasmic night.

The best thing about a banana and a cucumber is that these fruits even imitate the shape of an actual penis, and this is why they are often used in adult jokes or humour as well.

Carrot

Carrots are usually thinner than a cucumber, but due to their natural rough skin and shape, they can make great dildos. The length of a carrot is usually good enough to ensure some part of it remains outside. 

Zucchini

Zucchini is a vegetable (in cooking) with a length of around 6-10 inches, the perfect size that for your vaginal or anal masturbation. Just use a condom, apply lube and off you go! 

Make sure you never insert the side of a fruit or a vegetable that sticks to the branch. Always go with the other side.

Brush Handle

This could be either your hairbrush or your makeup brush that has a thick handle and is big enough for safe insertion. However, make sure you clean it well before using it as a dildo.

These brush handles might get regular contact with various chemicals in the shampoo, makeup or cosmetics that you use, which is why cleaning is of utmost importance here.

Shampoo or Mascara Bottle

Why throw away those empty shampoo, conditioner or mascara bottles when you can pleasure yourself using them? Yes, it is true that not all bottles might give you the same sensation that gets you off. 

However, if you feel that a certain bottle has the right shape and size, thoroughly wash it and enjoy the masturbation.

Remote of an Electrical Appliance

The modern-day electronics are all about compact, sleek and stylish designs, and so are their remote controls. If your TV or home theater sound system has a remote that is fairly large in length, well, what are you waiting for? 

Take out the batteries, cover it with a condom and get on with it! 

Detachable Shower Head

Exploring your body while having a shower is just the best feeling, isn’t it? A lot of young girls begin with their self-love encounters in the shower, particularly with those detachable shower heads with adequate water pressure and temperature.

Just make sure the temperature is neither too hot nor too cold, and that you do not have any plumbing issues that might affect water supply. It will be a big turn-off if the water runs out while you’re about to orgasm.

Final Word on Making Your Own Dildo

Before thinking about what you ‘can’ do to make a dildo for pleasurable orgasms, it is important to know what you ‘should not’ do – and that is ignoring the safety measures. Whatever you intend to use, make sure the material is safe and it is thoroughly washed before you put it inside your body.

The aforementioned DIY dildo options can be great, however, this doesn’t mean you can’t get creative with some other tool, accessory or an edible. As long as the material is not too rough, sharp, edgy or built with a breakable material like glass or wood – it’s all good. 

Condom and lube will make it easier and more fun though.. Enjoy! 🙂
