SEX TOY DIY: HOW TO MAKE A DILDO

There are two possible reasons you’re here right now: you’ve stumbled upon this humble blog post and are intrigued enough by the title to delve deeper into the story OR you’d love to masturbate right now, don’t have a sex toy on hand and actually want/need to know how to “make a dildo.” Either way, we’re glad you joined us.

While we would always encourage you to try to use an actual sex toy in your solo or partnered sex sessions for obvious reasons (safety, hygiene, the joys of cool toys, etc.), sometimes that’s just not feasible and you want to get down now. So what’s a gal (guy/person/interplanetary being) to do? Check out the ideas below for making your own dildo.

SAFETY CHECKPOINT! 

When making your own dildo, the four most important things to consider are:

  1. Always use a condom to keep things hygienic and safe
  2. Make sure the object/item you choose is NOT breakable
  3. Make sure the the object/item you choose CAN’T get lost inside you
  4. Lube is very helpful and highly recommended!

Idea #1: Cucumber and a Condom (AKA “Ol Reliable”)

Just like your sex ed teacher taught you, a reasonably fresh, long, and thin-ish vegetable of your choice with a condom on it (which should also be fresh- check those expiration dates, folks!) is the simplest and most efficient way to make yourself a penetrative sex toy. Other veggies and fruits that work well for this include bananas, carrots, and corn on the cob.

Make sure the vegetable isn’t mushy and if you’re going to use it for anal play, observe Safety Rule #3, always leave several inches of the dildo outside of your body or use an object that has a flared base to ensure it doesn’t get lost in your rectum.

Idea #2: Handles

Depending on your preference for size, anything from a hairbrush handle to a baseball bat handle can be a dildo if you want it to be. Safety Rule #1 Don’t be a fool! Wrap your tool! Always!

A non-exhaustive list of handles includes:

  • Toothbrush
  • Hair brush
  • Makeup brush 
  • Spatula 
  • Tennis racquet
  • Hammer
  • Baseball bat

Idea #3: A Long Stemmed Candle

Why this particular dildo idea seems sexier than the rest, I don’t know, but it does. Use the end without the wick. Safety Rule #1: always use a condom. Have I said that yet? 

Idea #4: Electric Toothbrush

We’re moving into new territory here, adding a vibrating element. Use the base of the electric toothbrush against your clitoris for external stimulation or wrap it in a condom and use it as an internal vibrator. Some electric toothbrushes even have multiple settings…(good chills).

Idea #5: “Back Massager”

The Hitachi Magic Wand, the OG of the sex toy world, was born thanks to some smart ladies realizing back and muscle massage wands felt REALLY good on areas other than one’s neck and shoulders. There are still plenty of actual body massagers out there that can be used for clitoral stimulation as well. These are not usually sized to be penetrative, but we felt it was fitting to include them.

Idea #6: Penis Molding Kits

That’s right. This one takes a little more forethought and commitment than rummaging through the crisper drawer and finding a rubber in your bag, but it can be really fun. Kits like Clone-A-Willy create an exact replica of the penis you’re working with. It’s done easily in a few steps, body and lubricant safe, and really quite fun! PLUS, each kit comes with a bullet vibrator that you can insert into your penis replica for even more fun and stimulation!

This is only a short list of ideas for items that you could use to create a homemade dildo, but there are PLENTY of other options. No matter what you choose, the most important thing to remember about making your own dildo are the four safety tips covered at the beginning of this article.

If you’re on the fence about whether you should go forward with making a homemade sex toy, below are some pros and cons to help you decide if you really need that orgasm now or can wait for the UPS driver to bring you a sexy new best friend.

 The Pros & Cons of DIY Dildos
PROS CONS
Discretion: That toothbrush is much easier to hide in plain sight then a manufactured dildo! Not considered truly body-safe: Manufactured sex toys are made out of things like medical grade silicone, ABS plastic, tempered and shatterproof glass, and stainless steel.
Immediacy: Get off with what you've got on hand. Shape: Harder to ensure you won't loose the item inside you.
Cost: You already bought those veggies… might as well get the most out of them! Higher chance of injury or infection: Since these items aren't intended for this, a myriad of things could go wrong, and may even hurt you.
Harder to sanitize: Household objects can be difficult to clean and may be more susceptible to absorbing bacteria.
