Few things are more empowering than owning your sexual pleasure, and the humble dildo is an excellent way to start. They can be expensive, though, and when we are on a budget, the need calls for some ingenuity.

Luckily, a homemade dildo is excellent for trying sex toys on a budget. Not only are they cheap, but they also have additional benefits you can’t get from commercial sex toys.

Let’s start by looking at how to make one using household items, then how to make a copy of your partner’s penis using a molding kit, then top it off by talking about safety and risk.

 


1. How To Make A Dildo Using Household Items

There are many items available in every home that can be repurposed, and with some creativity, you can create a dildo that’s good enough to get you through the night. Or at least until the husband gets home.

Making one is as simple as taking something with a phallic shape and making it safe to put inside the body. So, let’s have a closer look at some of the best household dildos I stuffed up my vagina and butt over the years!

1. Hairbrushes: Best For Beginners

A hairbrush

Hairbrushes are made of plastics with a remarkably phallic-looking brush handle. They are sturdy, inexpensive, and readily available, making them the perfect DIY dildo!

But it’s good to know a few essential pointers before using this penis hack (Since safety is our number one priority):

  • Use a newer hairbrush. Older brushes tend to have a lot of hair in them, making them awkward to use.
  • You will hold the brush part of the hairbrush. Hence the penetration depth will be limited, but on the other hand, you get a lot of control with hairbrushes. It’s great for reaching those problematic angles that don’t get enough attention.
  • Don’t overwork the brush. Your brush wasn’t designed for this type of business and could snap if you aren’t careful. High-quality brushes generally won’t break, but better be safe than sorry.
  • Make sure you also have a condom available before starting. We also recommend giving the entire hairbrush a good wash first.
  • Pick a hairbrush with a tapered, rounded tip. It makes insertion easier, making it less likely you injure yourself.

Pro tip: If you want to start small, use a toothbrush handle or makeup brush instead.

2. Ice Dildos: Best For Temperature Play!

Ice dildo

This one is not beginner-friendly if it isn’t obvious enough. First, put some water inside a condom and seal it shut with a good knot. Then place the water-filled condom in a freezer until it becomes ice. Voila, you now have your very own ice dildo!

Because it’s ice, it can get a little messy when it starts melting. Have a towel underneath you for easy cleanup.

This homemade sex toy is perfect for temperature play, not only on your genitals but also on other erogenous zones like nipples and inner thighs. However, if you haven’t tried it yet, you shouldn’t start with an ice dildo. You can seriously injure yourself if you aren’t careful!

Pro Tip: If you use a popsicle mold, you can make a DIY sex toy with a convenient handle.

Pro Tip 2: Try using it to enhance oral sex with your partner.

3. Electric Toothbrush: Best Homemade Vibrator!

Electric Toothbrush

An electric toothbrush can add clitoral stimulation instead of only penetrative action. Of course, you can insert the toothbrush piece, too, but it’s better as a stand-in for a Hitachi vibrator than a regular dildo.

Just be careful when using your electric toothbrush this way. It’s not designed to be used as a vibrator, so it can be damaged if you overdo it.

Also, hygiene and condom use are vital for this one. You know where you use the electric toothbrush after your masturbation session, and you probably shouldn’t brush with it anymore if you didn’t clean it properly!

4. Shower Head: Best For Wet Play

Shower Head

Did you know you can use shower heads as vagina toys? With decent water pressure, a shower head will be a great DIY vibrator. Just make sure you use lukewarm water. Never use hot water!

Other things to use as dildos include:

  • Shampoo bottle
  • TV remote control
  • Drumstick
  • Wet toilet paper inside a condom
  • Deodorant bottle.

Pro Tip: Are you looking for homemade BDSM toy ideas? You can use a wooden spoon as a spanking paddle, a sleep mask for sensory play, and an ice cube to punish your slave!

 


2. Using Fruits And Vegetables

Next, let’s move on to the fruit and vegetable section of our guide. If you prefer to watch a video instead of reading this guide, we have an excellent instruction video below:

1. Banana: Best DIY Dildo Overall

A banana

Bananas are the best homemade dildo because the curve makes them capable of G-spot stimulation. And if you prepare them correctly, the banana shouldn’t break inside you. Most importantly, try to pick a banana that’s a few days before ripening because they are significantly firmer than older bananas.

After you pick your banana, wash it well with some soap and water, put a condom on, and masturbate away!

Please note that the banana tip can be a little uncomfortable, and there’s also a slight chance it can rupture the condom. Therefore I recommend filing it a little before putting the condom on.

Even though a banana is relatively firm, it tends to go soft soon after being used like this. However, it should be good enough to get an orgasm or two out of it, though. The curve is also surprisingly effective at hitting the right spots!

2. Cucumber: Best For Extended Play Sessions

A cucumber

A cucumber should be a familiar choice for vagina owners interested in fruit dildos. Cucumbers have the right balance between squishiness and firmness, and they come in a broad range of sizes. Plus they aren’t expensive!

A good wash and a condom are good enough to transform the humble cucumber into an instrument of pleasure. The size of the tip might call for some water-based lube, but it’s all up to you.

Cucumbers are great because they don’t go soft quickly. Therefore, a single cucumber session can last a long time.

3. Zucchinis

A zucchini

A common alternative to the cucumber is the zucchini dildo. A zucchini practically works the same way and demands the same preparation processes. Instead of repeating myself, I’ll tell you my favorite way of using it.

Slice a few inches off one end of the zucchini. Hollow out the inside enough to fit in a slim vibrator. Put the entire thing in a condom and vibe away. You can thank me later.

4. Eggplants: Best For Size Queens!

Eggplant

Following the pattern of phallic food is the eggplant. The homemade huge dildo is girthy, smooth, long, and has the right amount of flexibility. The gentle curve and size variation also allow you to choose your own experience.

Preparation and application are the same here. If you feel the need for a little more out of your eggplant, you can carve out the stem end to fit a small vibrator.

Other fruits and vegetables suitable as homemade dildos include carrots and corn on the cob.

Now, let’s jump to something completely different. You see, there are several dildo molding kits available in sex toy stores like Lovehoney. These kits allow you to mold one to the exact shape and size of your partner’s penis. And to be honest, this is the best DIY dildo on this list because it’s completely custom-made!

 


3. Using Penis Molding Kits

A while back, I bought the Clone-A-Willy kit from an online sex toy store, and Tim helped me mold his erect penis with it. The result was fantastic! Now I don’t need a cucumber or hairbrush handle whenever I do a little hand play. This replica of my husband’s cock is more than enough.

The Clone-A-Willy kit

I still remember the first time we added it to our sex life. Tim was on a business trip, and we were on a Skype video call. I could see him naked inside his hotel room, and I felt so aroused looking at his body that I started playing with my nipples underneath my nightgown.

Tim noticed what I was doing and started playing with his cock until it became rock-hard. I took off my nightgown and took out my dildo from the drawer, and began to run it up and down my vagina.

I was wet in seconds!

Now, I held the phone with one hand while the other slowly slipped the dildo inside my pussy. It felt just like Tim’s!

I spread my legs wider and pushed and pulled it inside me while at the same time watching Tim on the phone masturbating. We were both moaning and groaning, and I saw him jerk off as my muscles contracted in a heavenly climax.

Clone-A-Willy finished result

It was unbelievable, and the fact that the dildo didn’t even change its shape (the way Tim’s cock does after he cums) sent a lot of sensations through my body as I pulled it out of my pussy.

How To Use A Penis Molding Kit

A dildo molding kit will generally have 1 or 2 bags of impression material to mold your partner’s penis with, some silicone rubber to make the dildo, and a casting sleeve. Some kits also include a small vibrator that you can stuff inside your homemade sex toys.

The silicone rubber should be completely body-safe, non-allergenic, tasteless, and odorless. Most kits will promise this, but it’s still a good idea to do your research.

Let’s be clear: this is a couple’s project. And your first job is to get him as big and erect as you can. You know what turns him on, so do all your tricks on him. While you’re turning him on, he mixes the mold and lets it set. This process should take around 2-3 minutes. Ideally, he should be rock-hard throughout the setting process.

Me mixing the ingredients with water

Once the mold has been set, he can remove his penis and wash it up. Add in the silicone and let it harden. If you did it correctly, the result should be a firm but flexible silicone dildo copy of your partner’s erect penis.

Doing this with Tim was a lot of fun. There’s enough impression material in the kit for us to make two copies, so there’s some room for mistakes if you’re molding for the first time.

It’s a little messy, but the result is worth it. Plus, there’s a variety of colors to choose from, and some vendors even offer glow-in-the-dark options of different colors.

The whole thing is simple enough to do, and the result is easily worth the price!

How To Safely Use Them?

Note: Any action you take upon the information on this website is strictly at your own risk. Please read our Terms of Service to learn more.

1. Choose Wisely

A dildo is effectively just a glorified thick stick, and your pleasure is mainly dependent on what you do with it. It can’t give you any pleasure only by itself. Hence, choosing a suitable dildo is an essential step. If it’s too big or too small, it won’t work no matter how hard you try.

Pick a color, shape, and size that doesn’t turn you off. Consider other things you’ve put inside you to help you decide on your next dildo. If you haven’t had penetration sex yet and you’re planning on using it to see how it feels, you probably want to start with your fingers or a smaller toy.

2. Lubricant Required

Sex toys, homemade or not, will need lubricant before penetration. And today, there are several varieties available in the market. If you’re unsure about which one to pick, water-based lubricants are generally safe choices. For latex condoms, avoid using oil-based lubricants like coconut oil or olive oil.

Sex toy lubricants are thicker, so they stick to the toy or condom longer. So, with your homemade anal toys, you will need to reapply the lube often to stay safe.

3. Condoms Recommended

Certain materials can cause allergic reactions in some people. Hence, unless it’s a body-safe material (ABS plastic, silicone, borosilicate glass, or stainless steel), always use a condom, even for homemade sex toys.

Furthermore, suppose you’re planning on using a homemade sex toy for anal play and vaginal use in the same session. In that case, it’s essential to change the condom to prevent the dildo from transmitting the bacteria from the rectum into the vagina.

Pro Tip: If you have a yeast infection or any other sexually transmitted infection (STI), use a condom at all times. You probably already knew that, but it’s still important to say.

4. Anal vs. Vaginal

Most DIY sex toys are ok for vaginal penetration, but many are unsafe for anal penetration. Most importantly, they need a flared base to prevent them from getting stuck in the rectum.

The above options don’t have flared bases, so don’t stick them in your anus. A hairbrush does have a flared base, but you shouldn’t start with a brush unless you’ve trained your anus to stretch. Even so, you probably shouldn’t use a hairbrush as a DIY anal dildo anyway.

5. Inspect Your DIY Toys

Take some time to do a final check on your homemade sex toy before using it. If you see any sharp edges, don’t use it. Ensure it’s nice and clean, and the condom sufficiently covers it.

If it looks like it won’t fit, don’t force it in. There are many shapes and sizes to choose from, so don’t be discouraged by imperfections or mismatches.

6. Turn Yourself on First

It’s a good idea to start doing something that turns you on before using your homemade sex toy since the wetter you are, the easier the penetration. If you’re not turned on enough, forcing a makeshift dildo on yourself can cause injury!

7. Start Slow

Going through the motions of testing out a new sex toy has always been exciting for me, and every DIY dildo I use goes through the same process.

First, I move the dildo around the vulva and the labia. This teasing always turns me on, and it’s also a final check to ensure everything is safe for entry. It makes the penetration part so much better and safer at the same time.

8. Play with Rhythm and Speed

Because homemade dildos won’t be as rigid as a conventional product, you must be careful how you use them. I’m not saying you should use it at a snail’s pace so it won’t break, but test the speed and rhythm that works for you and have a good feel to it.

When something feels like it’s breaking, please don’t push it!

Instead, remember how fast you were going and pace yourself next time. Nothing is stopping you from getting five bananas ready for a long session, either.

9. Explore Your Depths

Homemade sex toys, especially the vegetable kind, can be excellent tools for testing deep penetration. You can buy cucumbers or zucchini of different lengths to see what feels the best for you. The pleasure spots for deep penetration are different for everybody.

Experiment with depths and angles to find the right spots for you. The sex position you’re in can also change how good deep penetration feels. The usual pain point for deep penetration is when the toy hits the cervix. When this happens, immediately stop what you’re doing, and you can start slow again after the pain has subsided.

10. Add Clitoral Stimulation

We all know that clitoral stimulation feels fantastic, especially when combined with penetration and vibration. Fortunately, you can upgrade your humble vegetable dildo for clitoral stimulation!

Add small vegetables like baby carrots or leafy vegetables like kale onto your homemade vegetable vibrator to give it the extra oomph. It takes a little more effort and a lot of experimentation, but the results are gratifying. Take it from me.

11. Different Sizes for Different Moods

I have a personal collection of sex toys in different sizes. Sometimes, one size isn’t big enough after a couple of minutes. At this point, I would be switching dildos and going back at it. If you’re like me, knowing how to play with sex toys means you can have many in different sizes to play with.

You can swap around with different sizes, shapes, colors, and materials easily without spending a lot of money on expensive sex toys.

 


Are There Any Risks With This DIY Approach?

Homemade dildos can be risky if you don’t prepare them properly. For example, if you don’t wash them well, they can carry harmful bacteria and debris inside your vagina, causing an infection.

Hairbrushes made from wood can have splinters that can puncture the condom and damage the sensitive inner lining of your vagina, so always check for imperfections. Plus, choose something that won’t easily break. Therefore, a glass bottle or something made from wood is not recommended!

In general, homemade dildos are safe if you clean them properly (with warm water and mild soap) and use a condom. Lubrication is also essential. You don’t want to be in an emergency room explaining you inserted a banana into your vagina.

A condom and some common sense are more than enough to keep you in ecstasy and out of the emergency room.

Wrapping Up

When building dildos from household items, your imagination is the limit. We all have our preferences for sex toys, but molding a cock is the way to go if you want something that looks like a real penis. But don’t forget to experiment, too. Try to build one using different items around your house but be careful.

Not everything is safe to put “down there.” There are risks involved, so make sure to know your limits. You don’t want to be the next viral victim of a makeshift anal dildo!
