When money is tight, it seems sensible to cut corners by preceding luxury. And I’m willing to bet that most individuals consider sex toys a luxury. With the popularity of DIY and the desire to be as environmentally friendly as possible, it may be tempting to attempt making your sex toys at home.
Is it possible to manufacture your sex toys or find them at home? Let’s look at the various alternatives available to you if you’re looking to save money or get a little crafty before getting kinky.
Using Everyday Items As Sex Toys
At the risk of turning every object in the house into a potential sex toy, there are various things you could employ for sexual pleasure.
I should mention that I highly advise against using household objects for penetrative pleasure – in other words, don’t just insert that bottle, comb, or Lego model into yourself because you feel like it.
Okay, so during my first penetrative masturbatory adventures, I utilized fruit and vegetables (carrots, cucumbers, bananas – not cabbages, and pineapples, FYI), but they’re not the safest because they’re perishable. Internal irritations, grazing, or even wounds could result from rough places on the fruit or vegetable’s peel; orbits of the food item could break off and remain inside you.
I’d be tempted to try the trick of filling a condom with water, tying it off (somehow!), and freezing it as the only DIY penetrable I’d be persuaded to try. This reportedly manufactures a condom-covered, fuckable ice dildo. I don’t know anyone who has attempted this, and it appears to be a difficult task to balance in the freezer. We know they’re safe on the inside since it’s simply water and a condom. Please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please.
So, what else around the house could make you happy in your bedroom? Elastic bands could be used as cock rings, either around the penis base or around the scrotum and penis base. Alternatively, create your design using two or three bands.
Hairbands might be better; elastic bands and pubic hair don’t sound like a good match. There’s also the possibility of tying the rounds around the cock / cock and balls too firmly to be safe. If you try it, remove the bands right away if you experience any discomfort, soreness, or discoloration. If you can’t remove the bands quickly or easily, keep some scissors in your nightstand drawer just in case.
If you like to kink things up a notch, a belt might be used as a bondage collar; make sure that a) the belt isn’t too tight and b) it can’t come undone and be pulled much too tight during play. Wrist ties and bondage rope can be replaced by fabric ties (men’s ties or dressing gown belts). There is no quick-release or easy ‘out,’ so be careful with the knots you use, and, as previously stated, keep some scissors nearby in case you need a quick emergency exit.
As you can see, while some home things could be used as sex toys, there are several safety concerns. The built-in protection that most built-for-purpose sex toys have isn’t present in items found around the house because they weren’t designed to be used for intimate enjoyment.
Cut ‘n Shut Sex Toys are a type of sex toy that is designed to be cut and shut.
So, how about using spares or repairs’ from sex toys you currently own? Could you save some of them from the trash or recycling to make a new, fantastic enjoyment gadget?
I’m not sure where, to begin with, but my boyfriend would enjoy building a bucket of sex toys out of LEGO.
Some vibrating cock rings contain a removable bullet vibe that can be used alone to offer clitoral/erogenous zone stimulation, perhaps if/when the ring’s outer material has gotten damaged and needs to be discarded.
Other vibrating cock rings include a covered motor part that isn’t designed to be removed during normal use; it’s not a 2-in-1 sex toy, but you may retrieve it as a last resort before throwing it away.
Motors from vibrators or other vibrating toys are the same way. I wouldn’t use it to stimulate the skin directly, even if the motor doesn’t appear to have any sharp or abrasive edges. Still, it’s conceivable to slip it into a pocket of a strap-on, for example, or into another sex toy with a space to make it into a vibrating toy. For example, you can replace a dildo with a hole in the bottom or a vibrating cock ring with a worn-out motor. Put another way, keep the motor covered with fabric, silicone, or other material to protect your skin.
A broken buckle on a collar or bondage shackles might be replaced with another stitched or glued-on type, and previously chain-linked cuffs could be connected using a double ending trigger clip. I prefer trigger clips to padlocks because they are easier to open quickly. You also do not need to tens about losing your keys with a trigger clip!
Sex Toys 3D Printed
3D printing has exploded in popularity in other industries, but what about sex toys? Is it possible to 3D print sex toys in your own home?
ABS material is commonly used in 3D printing. The same plastic used in various sex shops stock plastic sex toys, and it’s also widely used in children’s toys. It’s a non-toxic, hypoallergenic, and phthalate-free substance.
Items that come out of a 3D printer, on the other hand, are often rough, with excess material on the surfaces, causing abrasions and injury to you whether utilized for external or inside sexual pleasure.
So, how about sanding the extra bits off the toy before using it? Isn’t that a good plan?
No, not at all. Even if you use sandpaper or a file to remove the visible surplus, the way 3D products are constructed (in layers) implies that microscopic flaws and gaps will remain. Yes, even if it appears to be smooth. That means bacteria and yuck will infiltrate such cracks due to close contact. The sex item would be unsanitary and potentially dangerous to use.
To make a non-porous surface, you could coat the 3D printed plastic sex toy in layers of silicone, but each layer would be fairly thin, so it would take a long time to build up.
You’ll also need a 3D printer, ABS plastic, some downloaded sex toy designs, body-safe silicone sealant, a technique to apply it to the item, and time to complete everything. Just thinking about it makes me exhausted (and a lot poorer). No, I don’t believe this is a good technique to produce sex toys at home — at least not right now.
Cloning Your Genitals is a method of cloning your genitals.
There is a different technique to build your sex toys at home, but it will still cost you money. Clone A Willy and Clone A Pussy are brilliant and fun, and the best part is that they function!
These kits include everything you’ll need to create a clone of your or your partner’s genitals, which you can then use together (think double penetration fantasies come to life) when you’re missing them (ugh, they have to go out eventually), or keep on your bedside table so you can wake up and admire it every day.
Please put it on the mantelpiece, surround it with a shrine, and invite all of your neighbors over for a look*.

DIY Dildos: Make Your Sex Toys at Home
Some individuals build proper, body-safe, could-be-sold-in-a-sex-shop silicone dildos at home, but you’ll need the necessary tools. I wouldn’t call it a cost-cutting choice; rather, it’s a more complicated pastime for those who enjoy crafts and sex toys.
To manufacture your sex toys at home, you’ll need to find the correct kind of silicone that can be used intimately without causing any unpleasant reactions in your body. Body-safe platinum cure silicone is available, and a Google search reveals that DIY dildo producers like the Smooth-on brand.
You’ll need a mold to pour the silicone into, and if you use a silicone mold, you might have trouble getting your creation out. You may utilize a mold release or go the simple route and use a plastic mold instead of a silicone one. According to what I’ve read, people have even constructed and used plastic dildo molds built from LEGO bricks.
If you’re interested in creating your dildo, that post also contains useful information and links.
When Do-It-Yourself Dildos Turn Into A Business
Others have even turned their hobby of creating silicone dildos into a company. GODEMICHE began with just one model of Adam dildo but has since expanded to include a wide range of colors and a variety of toys that can be purchased through their professional and slick website. I have a few GODEMICHE dildos of mine own and adore them.
