Household items as sex toys: yes or no?

Household items as sex toys: yes or no?

Household items as sex toys: yes or no?

It's not uncommon to hear of people using all sorts of objects and household items for masturbation purposes. With the eggplant emoji more often used as a phallic symbol than an actual eggplant, it's no surprise that people have admitted to using fruits, vegetables, beauty items, and even electric toothbrushes for their sexual pleasure!

But is it safe to use foreign objects to masturbate with? The simple answer is, probably not. Vibrators, dildos and other sey toys are your best bet for safe sexual play, given they are created using body safe materials that won't harm you or increase risk of infection.

While many objects might resemble your favourite toys, it doesn’t necessarily mean that they are safe to use!

Household objects

Household objects can be potentially dangerous to use, as they may be carrying unwanted bacteria or could be made from materials that are not body safe. It's hard to know whether an object such as a hairbrush might contain toxic chemicals such as vinyl or rubber jelly.

Plus, if it's been lying around in your bedroom or bathroom for months, it's probably best to steer clear due to dust and germs!

Foods

Foods such as cucumbers can cause imbalance to pH levels when inserted inside the vagina. It's best to avoid these, as you simply don't know what they may have been treated with or what fungal infections they could carry!

Likewise, inserting your penis into a banana, watermelon, pie, or anything else you may have in your kitchen, probably isn't the best idea for your general health and wellbeing.

But if you're convinced that you need to try a cucumber as a dildo, or re-live the infamous American Pie moment, be sure to pick up some durable condoms and be careful!

Lubricants

Many people have also dabbled in using common household products as lubricant. Lubricant is an essential product for masturbation and sex, helping to keep things smooth and friction-free. But before you reach for the nearest lube-looking item in your pantry, there's a few things that you should keep in mind first...

  1. Anything oil-based will break down latex condoms, so this is a definite no-no.
  2. Anything that may contain sugar, such as flavoured yoghurt, is not compatible with lady bits!

Shower play

We're all for sexual play in the shower, however it's important to be careful when using shower heads to masturbate (if you have a vagina, that is). Spraying a consistent stream of water from a showerhead into your vagina, can get rid of healthy bacteria and upset the acidic environment.

It's okay in small quantities, though, so just switch things up every now and then!

What you SHOULD use

If you're in need of a new sex toy or lubricant, there is a selection of adult toys out there that are affordable, and will work a lot better than your homemade alternatives! Plus, you don't have to worry about any unwanted infections or health complications.

The Neon Luv G-Spot Vibrator is a super affordable vibrator with silky-smooth material, powerful speeds, and a slightly curved tip for G-spot stimulation. Plus, it's waterproof!

The PDX Fill Her Up is a realistic flesh light with ribbed texture, lifelike features, and safe materials.

Wet Stuff Gold is a best-selling lube that is affordable, extra long-lasting, and has a slight warming sensation.

It's always important to keep your wits about you when introducing anything new in your sex life! And if you're not sure whether something's safe, it's probably best to opt for something that's tried and tested instead!
