Homemade Sex Toys
By Great Sex Coach Cynthia Perkins, M.Ed.
Almost everyone likes to experiment with homemade sex toys now and then and there's nothing wrong with that.
Even I must admit I dabble with them myself from time to time for something different and naughty.
Some of us never lose our childlike drive to be playful and adventurous; and that my friend is a good thing.
They're easy, convenient and cost effective. My most favorite as a woman and the ones I recommend most often are the cucumber and zucchini.
Both cucumbers and zucchinis are great penis simulators. They are soft and pliable, yet they are firm and hardy enough to handle a good ride.
Additionally, they can be used both vaginally and anally, so for men who enjoy a little back door action, they work quite as well.
Why Homemade Sex Toys?
There's a variety of reasons that people explore the homemade variety. Some are too shy, embarrassed or ashamed to buy the store bought brand. Others are low on funds and looking for something cost free. While others, like myself, simply wish to be a little daring and adventurous. We want to be naughty and kinky or exercise our sexual creativity.
Precautions when Using Homemade Sex Toys
When experimenting with homemade sex toys there are a few things to be aware of. There can be some risks associated with the wrong kind of toy. You want to be sure that you keep safety and hygiene in mind. Otherwise you might end up getting something like pinched skin, raw skin, splinters, irritations, urinary tract infections, or something lost or stuck in the wrong place.
The tissue in the vagina and the anus can be vulnerable to bacteria and toxic ingredients. They are also delicate and can be hurt easily. Be careful with your choices.
Make sure anything you use is cleaned properly and can be easily removed. Be sure to pick items that are non-irritating and won't get stuck. Be very careful with electrical items.
When using vegetables, be sure to wash them thoroughly. They have been all over the country and touched by many people. They've also been in the dirt and may contain bacteria, viruses etc. You should also use organic produce, because all produce that isn't organic is covered with pesticides that you don't want to put onto or into your genitals Alternatively, you could cover the vegetable with a condom, but that takes the fun of it, I think.
Make sure that when using items like a hairbrush and toothbrush they are kept out of reach of children or other people. It's very easy for them to pick up these items without knowing where they've been. Don't leave them out unless you live alone and your boyfriend or husband enjoys knowing that you've used it for the naughty.
With an extremely creative mind and curious spirit just about anything can become a candidate for homemade sex toys, but be sure to use common sense.
Employees from hospital emergency rooms often share their amusing stories with other people about the wild and crazy things they see when patients have gone a little too kinky and must have something removed from the vagina, anus or penis. If it looks dangerous, don't do it. If you think it may get stuck, don't try it. Don't take the risk for a few moments of pleasure.
Here are some of the most common homemade sex toys that can be used with relatively little risk. Most of these are self-explanatory, but I've added a note or two for a couple that may not be so clear.
Homemade Sex Toys for Men
- plantain - peel it and use the skin as a masturbator
- melon - cut a hole in it and go at it (I've been told that this feels almost like the real thing)
- pumpkin - same as melon
- 2 sponges in a plastic cup - place willy between them and pump away
- bar of soap - drill a hole in it and make it wet, then slip on in
- plastic bags - add a little lubricant, slide your johnson inside and stroke it good
Homemade Sex Toys for Women
- vibrating toothbrush - most pleasurable on the hood of the clitoris
- hairbrush handle - rub against the clitoris
- cucumbers or zucchinis- insert and take a ride on the wild side
- carrots - same as cucumber
- balls - rub against them or ride them
- shower head - lay down, spread them legs and enjoy -- the kind you can hold in your hand are best. (what woman hasn't been here?)
Note: The cucumber, zucchinis and carrots are most pleasurable when they are used simultaneously with clitoral stimulation. You or your lover can stimulate the clitoris with a vibrator, or your lover can lick your clitoris while penetrating with the chosen veggie. This can result in some really intense orgasms.
Veggies are also a great way to enjoy some double penetration. Insert one in the vagina, while your partner is penetrating you anally or vice versa. This, too, can give you some out of this world orgasms.
