The sex toy industry is a billion-dollar market. Yet some of the very first sex toys we’re exposed to are simple products kept around the house that just need a condom and a can-do attitude to get your engine revving. So if you’re shy about buying a vibrator or can’t afford/can’t wait to purchase a dildo at the moment, there are plenty of DIY sex toys available at your disposal. All you need to do is look around the house.
Before we go through the list, it’s important to note that cleanliness is key! Prior to using any foreign object in/on your vagina or nether regions, it must be sanitized and ideally covered with a condom or used over another layer of fabric. Otherwise, it could cause irritation or abrasions (not at all sexy, folks!) And, for good measure, get in the habit of cleansing anything you use sexually post-game too. Safety first, please!
Check out some of our favorite household sex toys that, if used correctly (and safely), will give you a mind-blowing orgasm.
