10 Safe Things You Can Use As A Dildo

Although the sex toy market is huge and still growing daily, many people tend to opt for insertables that weren’t designed for sexual use.

This could be due to many reasons, and we don’t judge here, but let’s say that if you have grabbed something from your local produce or have at least considered buying it so that you can use it in an unconventional way, you are definitely not alone.

I’ve also thought of pleasuring myself with an unconventional dildo and while doing my research for some safe makeshift dildo options, I, unfortunately, ran into some VERY unsafe suggestions that can potentially be super dangerous for a beginner (who also happens to be someone who is likely to search for these kinds of things).

In this article, I will give you a list of ten safe things to use as a dildo as well as a few things you should definitely stay away from for your own health and wellbeing.

And without any further ado, let’s jump right into the article…

safe things to use as a dildo

Hairbrush

Oh, hairbrushes. Have you even been through a teenage experimental phase if you haven’t done the dirty with a hairbrush handle?

A good hairbrush handle can definitely bring you to an orgasm and although it may take a while to figure out your tempo, it is definitely worth a try.

This is also one of the safest tools to use as a makeshift dildo, considering you choose a proper brush and not something sharp that you can potentially hurt yourself with.

Here are the three best hairbrushes to use as a dildo:

All of these brushes can be used with a condom or you can even wrap them up in cling film and spread some coconut oil over them for a good slip.

The only thing I have to mention is that I don’t recommend these hairbrushes for anal because they are not as tapered as an anal toy should be.

If you want to use a hairbrush for anal sex, choose something thinner and tapered like this one from the L3 Store.

Electronic Toothbrush

An electronic toothbrush can not only be a good dildo but also makes for an excellent vibrator and has been there for many people who aren’t in the position to purchase or experiment with sex toys.

These devices are simple and easy to use and can easily take you to an explosive orgasm once you figure out a good way to use them on yourself.

Since they also vibrate, you can use them not only for vaginal but for clitoral and anal pleasure too, although you need to be careful when choosing a good handle, especially for anal play.

Here are a few best electric toothbrushes for masturbation:

When playing with an electric toothbrush, make sure to always wrap it in a condom or cling film (the more layers the better) to provide good protection for the buttons and not damage them with bodily fluids.

Hammer

The handle of a hammer can serve as a good makeshift dildo for beginners because it’s thin, long, and the object is easy to hold and handle.

Try to opt for a silicone or wooden hammer handle and always watch out to purchase one with either a tapered or at least slanted tip for easy insertion and comfortable use.

Here are a few hammer handles that are good for masturbation:

As always, only use them with a condom or a cling film dipped in some sort of body-safe oil or lube for easy insertion and a good slip.

Showerhead

A showerhead is a classic home tool for achieving intense clitoral orgasms and every girl knows that. And if you don’t, you need to try it out, right now!

The handle of a showerhead can also be used as a dildo but you need to make sure that it’s clean and there isn’t even a little bit of rust on it as this could potentially cause some damage, especially if it leads to cuts or abrasions.

Therefore, you can either play it safe and use a condom or a cling film when using a showerhead as a dildo, or simply use it as a tool for clitoral pleasure, which is the preferred and safer option.

Candle

Candles come in all shapes and sizes, which is great because you can pick one that looks like a dildo, pleasure yourself with it, and put it back on the decorative table in your home without anyone suspecting what it actually served you for.

However, when playing with a candle, make sure to always use it with a condom or keep it wrapped inside many layers of cling film because your body heat can actually melt it and cause it to break inside.

Cucumber

Good old cucumber is probably the most used fruit (yes, it’s actually a fruit) for achieving powerful orgasms on a whim when there isn’t anything else around.

And since its composition allows it to be firm, tough, and durable, chances are it won’t break or hurt you so I don’t see the problem with experimenting and figuring out whether this fruit will be the one to get you to a powerful orgasm.

Still, you should be careful with it and always use it with a condom or wrapped inside a cling film as these methods will prevent it from staying inside you if it happens to break by accident.

Banana

Banana (unpeeled only) is another great fruit that can serve the purpose of sexually pleasing you if you don’t have anything else to get the job done.

However, many people have hit and miss experience with this particular fruit and I think that’s because to be able to successfully achieve an orgasm with a banana, you have to cut the hard bit on the tip so that it looks like an uncircumcised penis and be smooth instead of rough and scratchy.

You can actually play with an unpeeled banana without a condom, but using some sort of edible oil like coconut oil as lube is advisable for a more pleasant sensation.

Carrot (or a bunch of carrots)

A carrot can actually make for a pretty satisfying anal toy because it’s slim and tapered at the tip and wider at the bottom.

However, be careful not to lose it inside your body while playing as this can very easily happen. To avoid this, best place the carrot inside a condom so that you can pull it out easier.

Zucchini

Zucchini is basically a smaller cucumber that can make up for another great makeshift dildo. I’d also suggest you try both and see which one works out better for you.

Small eggplants

Aubergine or small eggplant is one of the most satisfactory makeshift dildos on this list. Even though small, they are quite durable and don’t break easily so you can go a bit harder with the eggplant without worrying that it will stay inside your body.

They are also very smooth and although I would recommend you to use them with lube and a condom, you don’t have to if you don’t want to


10 Things You Should Never Use As Dildo

things you should not use as a dildo

As I already mentioned above, while doing the research for this article, I found some pretty sus suggestions that not only scream “uncomfortable” but can be downright dangerous.

Here are ten things you should never try to use as a dildo:

  • Regular toothbrush handle as this one is usually too thin and is not only unsatisfactory but some can be very sharp.
  • The handle of a spoon is also too small and sharp to be pleasurable.
  • The handle of a makeup brush could work if it’s wider but definitely avoid a thin one.
  • The handle of a screwdriver. Need I explain why this is a bad idea?
  • Handle of a razor.
  • Perfume bottles because they could potentially leak and irritate your skin.
  • Shampoos bottles are usually too wide and made out of hard, uncomfortable plastic.
  • Pen or bunch of pens can be incredibly sharp and can also leak ink.
  • Drumsticks are too sharp and can be very uncomfortable and dangerous.
  • Ice can easily cause ice burns and these take a while to heal.

How to Safely Play With Makeshift Dildos

If you are already decided on which object you want to try out as a makeshift dildo, you need to make sure you know how to use it and always stay safe.

Here are a few useful tips on how to safely play with makeshift dildos:

Clean Them Properly

This is an incredibly important step as it reduces the risk of bacteria spreading and infection. Especially if you are using tools such as a hammer (handle) that are typically stored in dirty places or vegetables that tend to have parasites on them.

To make sure you are playing with a clean toy and are not potentially putting your health at risk, try to boil the item (if possible) or simply wash it for several minutes in soap and water.

Use a Condom

Using makeshift dildos with a condom doesn’t only create a barrier between the surface of the toy and your skin to protect you from bacteria but will also make it easy for you to actually pull out the toy if it accidentally slips and stays inside.

Use a Water-Based Lube

If you are not wrapping your toys in cling film or a condom and want to use them raw, try to at least get your hands on a water-based lube.

Putting oils directly on the toy could potentially degrade some materials and it’s ridiculously difficult to clean afterward.

So if you don’t want to deal with all that hassle but you want a nice and slippery feel, water-based lube is the way to go.
