We currently live in a world where people are much more open to learning everything about sex.
That’s amazing and all but while there are some people who are fortunate enough to explore their sexuality without judgment or hassle, there are others who are not so lucky.
It might be because they don’t have a budget to invest in sex toys. Maybe they have decided to put a pause to dating for a while. Or maybe they don’t have the luxury to live alone just yet. Whatever reason that may be, just know that you are not alone and that there are other, more clandestine ways to have an orgasmic time to yourself.
Enter homemade dildos – yup, that’s right. Believe it or not, there are a lot of items within your home that you can use in place of the classic dildo. Together with The Gritty Woman, Cosmopolitan and Bad Girls Bible, we will run down the list for you and see if you have any of these within your reach.

FAQs on Homemade Dildos
Safety Considerations of Homemade Dildos:
You might have noticed by now that all of these household items are not made with body-safe materials, and as such, Bad Girls Bible needs to consider the following so that you can have some fun without the consequences:
- Can it transmit bacteria or cause infection?
- Can it break off?
- Will it cause injury?
Considering the first condition, Bad Girls Bible continues on to say that not a lot of people are hyper-aware that fruit and vegetables carry bacteria even after washing. That is because unlike dildos, these are porous. Meaning fruits and vegetables have holes in them that are invisible to the naked eye and can carry a number of bacteria.
That’s why it is highly encouraged to put a condom onto all of the items in the list. It’s to significantly decrease the risk of infection and injury (in the event it does break off in the middle of masturbating).
This goes for both vaginal and anal holes.
Speaking of anal holes, there are additional aspects to consider. Since the anus is near the colon and lower intestine, you have to ensure that your household item has a flared bottom or else, you will risk it getting stuck inside and cause further complications.
As always, once you use any of these household items for your sexual pleasure, it’s best to throw them away rather than keep them.
Moving on to the second condition. It bears repeating that you need to ensure that your item cannot break easily. We did mention that putting a condom around it can reduce the risk even if it breaks but the reality is, we don’t want to be too complacent and get into trouble later.
It’s always better to be sure of everything before getting started.
On to the final condition, which is rather self-explanatory. But allow us to remind you that if you feel that this particular item may cause you harm, follow your gut and don’t use it.
You are trying out a completely different experience so listening to your body is more than ever before. You are in control and there should be no shame in that.
Before we let you go, we have one more tidbit for you! This comes from personal experience but always – and we mean it, always use lube. Sometimes, we get too eager to get the ball rolling that we become too confident that our holes can take it.
On the contrary, our holes are so prone to injury that caution must be practiced at all times! Additionally, feeling that smooth insertion from the lube provides a much better sensation than putting up with the rough bareness of it all.
So there you have it! A quick and easy to digest article that details the items you can use as homemade dildos and how to use them safely! We hope you like this piece that is made with love and remember – it’s better to be safe than sorry!
