Sex toys like silicone dildos and vibrators are plentiful, but you can get your rocks off with homemade dildos too! Use your imagination – there are many household items you can use to masturbate with!

things to masturbate with

When it comes to masturbating, we’re usually given two options: hands or sex toys. Do you ever wish there were other things to masturbate with? How about homemade dildos?

Our hands never let us down—they’re always there when needed. But sometimes, the whole masturbating-with-our-hands routine gets a little dull. It’s normal to want to spice things up. Plus, our hands can’t get deep into the good parts.

We also have toys. And toys are great, but not all of us have one of our own. Maybe you’re scared to buy a new toy because you don’t know which one to get. Perhaps you live at home and are nervous about your parents finding it, or your toy inconveniently ran out of batteries *it happens*.

The good news is that there are plenty of household things to masturbate with! [Read: How to masturbate and experience pleasure in new ways]

A brief history of the dildo

Women’s libidos are ridiculously complex things. They’re not usually consistent, and we can get irrationally horny at the most bizarre and unexpected times. While you may have your significant other there to satisfy you, they won’t always be around.

Of course, it’s not only women that might enjoy a little dildo fun too – this is a toy for all!

Dildos have been around for far longer than you would guess. Go ahead, give it a really good guesstimate, and we’ll bet you’re wrong *unless you’re a history buff*. [Read: 13 must-have couples’ sex toys for naughty first timers]

Okay, okay, we’ll tell you: dildos have been around since the Ice Age. That’s 28,000 years ago!

Man, our ancestors really understood the importance of masturbating. We bet they were also pretty good at making a homemade dildo!

The biggest benefits of masturbation

Self-pleasuring, or masturbation, is touching and rubbing parts of your body for sexual arousal and pleasure. You can explore your own body alone, or you could do mutual masturbation with another person.

Masturbation is extremely common at all ages for both males and females. It’s a healthy way to explore your body, figure out what feels good sexually, and to achieve an orgasm. [Read: Chronic masturbation and how to stop your hands from lingering too often in your pants]

But there are other benefits too.

1. Releases sexual tension

We don’t always have a partner around to fulfill our sexual needs at any given moment. So, all you need is yourself if you want to let some of that sexual tension out.

2. Lets you explore your sexuality on your own

You know the parts of your body that are the most sensitive. By masturbating, you can experiment with the best ways to make yourself feel good – and then share that with your partner.

3. It can be done whether you’re single or in a relationship

Masturbation is for everyone, regardless of whether you’re single or in a relationship. You don’t need to wait to find the perfect person to experience sexual pleasure. [Read: Going solo – The 15 sexy benefits of masturbation]

4. It helps you relax and sleep better

Because masturbation can reduce stress levels, it also helps you relax and get better sleep at night.

5. It releases endorphins which create a sense of well-being

When you have an orgasm, your brain releases neurotransmitters called endorphins. These are the “feel good” hormones that give you a sense of well-being.

Now that we have a brief understanding of why masturbation can be a good thing, let’s talk a walk around your house and pick up the best household things to masturbate with. They’ll certainly leave you with a pleasurable orgasm! [Read: Why do orgasms feel so good?]

Now, we know what you’re thinking, “what things? I don’t feel like using a carrot.”

No one said to start experimenting with vegetables or fruits, unless you really want to. There are other items that can be used as a dildo. Learn how to make your own dildo that’s going to satisfy you.

1. Showerhead

If you’ve seen almost any chick flick, you’ll notice the showerhead being used as a masturbation tool. And, in reality, you can actually use it. That makes it one of the best household things to masturbate with.

If you’re looking for a clitoral vibrator, then a showerhead is your best option. Get yourself comfortable in the shower, turn the water on, and have a good time. [Read: Know how to make shower sex sizzle and have a really good time]

2. Spatula

You can use it to make cake another day. Right now, you’re going to use it to make your own sex toy. The spatula is a great tool to use during foreplay. If you’re getting yourself aroused, either alone or with a partner, take the spatula and spank yourself with it.

You can use the other end as a dildo, just make sure that it’s thick enough. [Read: Naughty tips for a sexy spanking]

3. iPhone

Your iPhone does more than you think. Aside from social media and connecting you to friends and family, your iPhone can also act as a vibrator.

The beauty of the iPhone is that you can create your own vibration. Now, it’s not great for clitoral stimulation, though—you may need to send in a complaint to Apple.

4. Back massager

After giving yourself a back massage, why not use the massager as a vibrator. The beauty of the back massager is that it comes with a variety of different settings you can play around with.

If you want a stronger setting, you just hit the switch, and you’ll be that much closer to reaching orgasm. [Read: 15 common household items that can be used sexually]

5. Wii remote

Who thought your WII remote could be so magnificent. All these years you thought the Wii was a waste of time. Well, now you have a reason to love it!

A Wii remote is a pretty good masturbation tool. It vibrates, which is a plus, but find a good game to play it on, or else the vibrations can be a little weak.

6. Electric toothbrush

An electric toothbrush gets the job done. If you enjoy using vibrating dildos, then you’ll like an electric toothbrush.

It gives off a strong vibration, and you’ll be able to insert it inside of you. [Read: The perfect homemade dildos for when the moment strikes]

7. Ice cubes

Aside from masturbation, you can use ice cubes in many different ways when having sex. They’re pretty versatile. If it’s a hot summer day, use an ice cube to cool your genitals off. It’ll give them a tingling sensation that’ll get you in the mood.

8. A pillow

Though a pillow doesn’t vibrate, it does do the trick when you need to grind against something. Plus, it can be used as a prop to help you reach orgasm.

It’s soft, you’re not going to cut yourself, and all you need to do is grind against it. [Read: Pillow humping – how to hump a pillow and the best ways to do it]

9. Washing machine

You can use whatever you’d like when masturbating on top of the washing machine. Whether you use your hands, a real sex toy, or one of the items on the list.

Crank the machine into a spin cycle and take a seat. Let the machine do the rest of the work while you feel the vibrations going up your body.

10. Bathtub faucet

The showerhead is definitely more practical and functional when you’re looking for things to masturbate with, but if you don’t have one, then a bathtub faucet can do the trick.

For women, lay on your back with your legs against the wall as the water hits your clitoris. Just make sure the water isn’t too hot. You don’t want to explain that in the emergency room! [Read: How to finger yourself – 14 ways to touch yourself and start cumming]

11. Banana peel

If you have a male partner who’s into mutual masturbation, give this a try. Men can use the peel as a pretty good replica fleshlight.

Just munch on a banana and use the peel. Cut the tip off the banana, make a small slit, and insert the penis inside. [Read: Mutual masturbation and 14 ways to connect intimately]

12. A towel

Again, if you’re trying out mutual masturbation, this is a great option for a male partner. Take a towel and place it in lukewarm water.

Wring it out and use it to mimic a vagina during masturbation. Sure, it’s not the exact same thing as a vagina, but it’s a different sensation. It’s also one of the easiest things to grab from the list of household things to masturbate with!

13. Immersion blender

Make sure you remove all the blades before using it! But once you do, you have yourself a pretty great dildo. The downside is you’ll need to plug it in before using it if you want the vibrating sensation. [Read: Homemade sex toys for men: the horny guy’s guide to jerking off at home]

14. Hairbrush handle

Ah yes, the classic hairbrush; probably the first dildo some of us experimented with. Don’t use the end with all the bristles. Instead, flip it around and use the head of it to masturbate with. It’s one of the easiest homemade dildos around. You can also use the handle end if it has ridges and is small enough to create a dildo out of. You just need a condom to cover it with, and then use plenty of lube along the way.

If you want to use the bristles, you can run them across your body and feel the sensation go through your inner thighs and bum.

15. Candle

As strange as it might sound, some people look at the wax sitting on their dining room table and wonder what it would feel like to masturbate with.

However, actual sex toys are made of silicone, which is pretty safe for the human body. So, you might want to cover it with a condom first. [Read: 7 reasons why some women hate their vibrators]

16. Pen or marker

Well, a pen or marker can be used in making a dildo if you are looking for something small to masturbate with. Obviously, it’s not as thick as a real penis, but that doesn’t mean that some people don’t like using it to create some self-pleasure. [Read: Female masturbation – 17 facts about this naughty secret]

17. Mattress

Similar to the pillow option, you can also use your mattress. It’s not uncommon for women to use more than one masturbation technique at the same time. You can touch yourself while simultaneously grinding up and down on your mattress.

18. Blanket

If you want to stick to the bed products when you masturbate, then you can also try using a blanket. You can roll it up like a pillow, and then put it between your legs and do your thing until you get off.

19. Makeup

And you thought that makeup was used just to make yourself more beautiful! Well, it can also be used to make yourself orgasm.

Some women use their lipstick or mascara in place of a vibrator. You can also try a foundation brush handle. Whatever works for you. Although, here’s a reminder to not use them as anal dildos—there’s a possibility that they’ll get lost inside you. [Read: 12 fun ways to masturbate and experience pleasure in a whole new way]

20. Plastic bottle

Plastic bottles don’t just hold soda anymore. You can also use them as a DIY sex toy. Because they have a skinny top to them, they can be inserted quite easily. But you might want to think about using lube and a thick condom as well.

In terms of household things to masturbate with, this one will always be around the house.

21. Tool handle

If you don’t have an extra beer or wine bottle handy, maybe you have a tool laying around your house that you can use. Most tools have a good-sized handle that can be inserted.

This sounds like you would need some condoms and lube to go with it though. [Read: How to masturbate – 14 sexy self-pleasure tips for women]

22. Remote control

Remote controls come in all shapes and sizes and are perfect things to masturbate with. Believe it or not, some even vibrate, like the ones you use for video games.

It’s not exactly the same as a real vibrator, but it’s worth a shot if you have nothing else. Just remember to clean it first and use a condom because they have a LOT of germs on them.

23. Toilet plunger

Now, you might think that masturbation and toilets don’t really go together, but you could use the handle of a plunger if you really feel like it.

It may not be the best choice, but hey, to each their own. Just don’t forget to put a condom over it, because you don’t want to get any splinters if it’s a wooden handle! [Read: Try out some of these sexy solo sex positions]

24. Vegetables

Various vegetables from your fridge, like cucumbers, carrots, and zucchinis, are some simple items with great sex toy potential. Roll a condom on one, apply a little lube, and you have an improvised thick dildo at home.

Just make sure that you pick a fresh one to prevent it from breaking apart during use. Wash it thoroughly to prevent infections.

25. Banana

We mentioned the banana peel, but what about the whole thing? Bananas are cheap with a nice firm texture and are curved like an actual penis. The curve makes it a favorite of most daring ladies out there.

“Serving” suggestion: wrap a towel soaked in hot water around it to warm it up a bit, apply a little bit of lube, and enjoy your fruity phallus. It’s one of the best household things to masturbate with! [Read: Condom types and how they can improve your sex life]

26. Vibrating stuffed toys

Another potential homemade vibrator is your old battery-operated stuffed toy from childhood. If you’re not feeling too weird about humping and climaxing over an old memento of your childhood, that is!

27. Face scrubber/exfoliating machine

A relatively new facial care accessory, a face scrubber features an electronic motor grip with a spinning mount where you attach different kinds of heads.

As an improvised sex toy, it is handy as a clit massager. Just don’t forget to replace the head with a clit-friendly attachment to avoid scraping your fun parts. [Read: Intense orgasms checklist – 11 moves to guarantee one every time]

28. A frozen sausage

Why frozen? Well, a room temperature sausage may not be firm enough to stand all the action of acting as a dildo. In addition, non-frozen sausages may break or ooze out some of their meaty juices into your privates.

With that in mind, make sure you use a condom and avoid using spicy sausages for your own safety. You might also want to tie the end of the condom with a rubber band to make sure you’re not going to spill anything

29. String beads/pearl necklace

Ever wondered what to do with those string bead curtains that went out of style a few decades ago? Or, that pearl necklace you never use?

If you enjoy anal sex, re-use those for sexual purposes as improvised homemade anal beads. Adjust them to your preferred length by cutting and securing the ends – *you don’t want to leave a piece inside you* – and you now have a great homemade toy for anal play. [Read: The craziest and kinkiest sex stories on Reddit]

30. Drumstick

Okay, it might not have the necessary girth you’re looking for, but if you’re in a pickle, a drumstick could do the job! However, do remember this is a very firm instrument, so you’ll need to go steady otherwise you might end up injuring yourself – ouch!

31. Feather duster

Out of all the homemade dildo ideas we’ve mentioned, this one is the most multipurpose. Gently run the feathers over your body to get yourself firmly in the mood. Then, use the handle for the best part of the action.

However, do make sure it’s clean – dust isn’t the best thing to get inside you. [Read: 10 tips to help you open up about your kinky side]

Things to remember before using household objects as makeshift dildos

Before you grab the nearest object and use it for sex, there are some things to remember to spare you from an embarrassing trip to the emergency room.

Even if household objects to masturbate with can be used for a little bit of fun, care should be taken to avoid any accidents or complications.

1. Sterilize objects before and after use

You wouldn’t want to jam a microbe-infested object inside your privates and risk infection. In the same manner, don’t use that same object for its original purpose after using it on your nether regions. Make sure to use soap and water to clean your preferred makeshift toys before and after using them.

Sterilization will help you enjoy playtime longer. Plus, it will prevent any accidents from occurring. [Read: How to have safe sex in every single way possible]

2. Watch out for sharp edges or parts that can break off

Don’t get too excited that you forget to inspect whatever you are using as a homemade dildo! Using household things to masturbate does require a little extra care and attention before you make your choice. Do not use items that might easily break or those with sharp edges.

3. Always use a condom

Everything you use as a homemade dildo should have a condom put over it. This is not just for sanitary purposes. It can also help with the lubrication, so it’ll feel a lot better going in.

You’ll also notice that the feel of the condom will be more familiar than the texture of whatever you’re using. [Read: How to use lubricants to liven up your sex life instantly]

4. The more lifelike, the better

When trying to find items to use as dildos, the more lifelike they are, the better they’re going to work. So when choosing the best product, the one that’s shaped like a man’s ding-dong is going to result in the best feeling.

However, anything that vibrates also works well in terms of household things to masturbate with. [Read: 10 good reasons why women should watch porn]

5. Avoid anything pointy

Anything sharp or pointy could do some serious damage if it winds up hitting your cervix forcefully. Avoid anything that could potentially be uncomfortable or even painful.

6. Don’t get so caught up that you forget your common sense

You have to have some common sense with what you’re putting into your body. Choosing household things to masturbate with can’t just be an instant decision.

Don’t simply use whatever seems like a good idea at the time, because let’s be honest, pretty much anything could get the job done if you’re horny enough. So use your brain and be careful about what you decide to use. [Read: Magic fingers: the sexual art of using your fingers]

7. Avoid glass objects

Bottles used to store perfume, cosmetics, food, and drinks may seem sturdy and fit for the task. But you never know when it might break and injure you while being used.

There are actual cases where people needed surgery to remove glass shards embedded inside their privates after using an improvised glass sex toy. So if you decide to go for the bottle option, make sure it’s plastic.

8. Don’t use anything with the potential for breakage

Anything that could break, avoid. However, you can use a condom over some more fragile things, e.g. a candle.

As long as it’s sturdy, covered, and you don’t get too carried away, you should be good to go. [Read: Sex myths – The commonly accepted sex ‘facts’ that are so wrong]

9. Don’t lose it inside of you

Maybe you like to go deep and if that’s the case, all power to you. However, do you really want to go to the emergency room with a cucumber stuck in your vagina? Probably not.

Don’t go too far and always keep a firm grip on whatever you’re using.

Whenever you feel like masturbating, now you can go for it!

If you don’t have a toy handy and you’re bored of the same routine with your fingers, these household things to masturbate with have you covered.

Now there’s no excuse not to get it on with yourself, and enjoy all the benefits that masturbation brings.
