What Household Items Can You Masturbate With?

Masturbation is a pretty popular topic here and for good reason! It’s super normal (and common, actually) and really healthy. Seriously! Good for you for masturbating!

This week on the message boards, I noticed a topic about what to masturbate with. There are some things you just should and should not use, you guys.

Let’s see what you had to say:

sexbabe asked:
“Okay, so I masturbate nearly everyday, but I’m kinda getting bored of just using my hands. Do you have any homemade tricks to make a dildo or a vibrator or something? I’m not old enough to buy sex toys.”

Jenster said:
“If you have a hair brush with a round handle, that works well. Just make sure you wash it well before and after. Some girls also like to use carrots or cucumbers or bananas. Again, just make sure anything you put inside is washed well to avoid infection. I hear some girls use those electric razors for your legs, but I’ve never tried one. Another thing you can buy at your age that vibrates is an electric toothbrush, like a Crest Spinbrush. You can get them relatively cheap. Just hold the back of the brush against your clit and have fun!”

omeglemissy said:
“Well you can use these vegetables and all but the easiest thing that I ended up using for years was actually tubes/bottles. Like roll-on deo or shampoo and cream bottles. Whatever has the shape and for sure you have all the different sizes in house, and it is the least suspicious if you forget it somewhere. Who will ever think you use it to masturbate?”

bettyboop said:
“My brother’s got a little toy called a hexbugnano vibrates like crazy, and you can buy them in any toy shop. I have used modelling clay wrapped tightly in cling film to make all manner and shape of toys. Long, thin, ribbed you can get inspiration from websites with toys for sale. You will need a lube with the cling film, and the clay can break if you are more violent with it than just in/out and again good for me.”

Alrighty. First, let me say congrats for not being shy about masturbation! Masturbating is totally normal and healthy, and it’s not something you should be ashamed of.

But let’s talk about safety. It’s important to be safe because even though you’re not contracting STDs or getting pregnant from masturbating, you can still face some problems especially if you’re using strange objects. You don’t want to get an infection up there!

Please, please, please do not use fruits or vegetables or other food items to masturbate! Sticking any sort of food object in your vagina is just not a good idea.

Getting a vibrator or dildo is definitely the best and safest option if you’re looking to use something other than your hands. Even if you’re not old enough to buy sex toys in a store, you can check online. Shower heads and vibrating toothbrushes are popular options among a lot of people as well. But honestly, it’s best to get something that’s made for masturbating instead of risking getting an infection or injuring yourself by masturbating with something you found in your house.

    I’m currently 13 but i started wayyyyy beforehand, I know, that’s horrible. I have a porn addiction. Anddd I want to try it, instead of just humping my bed. I’ve fingered my self before but it didn’t feel as good what can I do? I have no way to get the thing you all are talking about. All I have is this long bubble container that’s clear. I’m so late:(

  • kinkistarrr87

    Don’t be shy, I started small and gradually put in bigger things, hangers, soda bottles, chair legs. The more it hurts, the deeper it goes and I squirt more. Try it, or have ur bf do it to u. Amazing. Even better blindfolded so u donno what to expect.

    • Gina Luttermoser

      ur so kinky

  • Almostanonymous

    I’ve found that a very good thing to masturbate with is a screwdriver. If you’re young and living with your parents, it’s absolutely perfect. A) You usually don’t need to buy one. Chances are that there’s one somewhere in your home. B) Your parents will never catch you! As long as you’re careful and secretive about it it won’t be noticeable. Tips for using a screwdriver: First off, thoroughly, thoroughly wash it before use. Otherwise you can risk infection, and nobody wants that. And before and during use, I suggest wetting it with water…or more accurately, saliva. And since these vary in sizes, it’s so easy to replace a common dildo. Sure it doesn’t vibrate, but come on. If your in situations such as living with your parents, young, can’t buy sex toys, this can be very useful. AGAIN, WASH THOROUGHLY BEFORE AND AFTER USE.

    I’m nine so I barely know any sex… I used what they suggested to masturbate with but I’ll tell you if I use a electric toothbrush I don’t know were to put it in

    • Anon

      Basically, Like paige says there are three holes, Anus, Vagina and Urethra(pee hole). In that order, Now in the ‘flaps’ where your vagina is, near the top of the flaps there is a clitoris or ‘clit’ If you rub your hand/finger around that area, You should find it and you will feel when you find it, But here is a diagram. http://www.webmd.com/women/female-external-genitalia-vulva

    I use the end of a tooth brush. I live in a household of five so ordering sex toys are hard. The tooth brush is a great thing to use. Bad thing is I was using it in my mothers bed. Had to say it was drool… Do it somewhere else people.

  • swetha
