Masturbation is enjoyable in and of itself, but sometimes a guy likes to add something different to his penis fun. Clearly, sex toys are one of the go-to options here, but there can be drawbacks. For example, a dude might not have one on hand when he wants one, or they may not fit into his tight budget. That’s where DIY sex toys come in – and as long as attention is paid to ensuring they don’t impact good penis health, the homemade possibility gives a man the opportunity to be creative in his solo-sexual play.
Although it can be invigorating to delve into homemade sex toys, it’s essential to remember the first rule: do no harm. Care always needs to be taken to ensure that using any toy, whether homemade or store-bought, is going to be safe and not harm the equipment – or any other part of the body.
Out of your gourd
Many men who enjoy (or would like to enjoy) a faux vagina toy fall back on a substitute from Nature – the penis-friendly gourd. We’re talking pumpkin, watermelons, honeydew melons, cantaloupes, etc. These gourds are generally large enough to provide the average penis with a vagina-like playground.
To make sexual use of a gourd, carve a hole in it that is big enough around and deep enough to comfortably accommodate the penis – but not so large as to prevent an adequate build-up of friction when thrusting. Smoothing the edge of the rind is also a good idea. Once it has been properly prepared, simply insert the erect member and get down to business.
Some men prefer to lie on their backs and lift the gourd up and down; others favor lying atop the gourd and simulating a more “missionary” approach.
Gourds do tend to be juice and fleshy – and therefore rather messy. Be prepared both to clean up the “work area” and the penis itself. Also note: some penises have very sensitive skin and may react to the juiciness of the gourd flesh.
The world of plastic presents numerous DIY sex opportunities. For example, many men find that simply wrapping bubble wrap around their penis and masturbating brings about a deliriously intense orgasm.
Another popular option is to take a plastic bag and squirt one’s favorite lubricant in it. Let it spread out and cover the whole bag. Once properly lubed, place the penis inside it and thrust away.
Penis rings are very popular in the world of sex toys for men. A man can utilize a DIY version if a professional one is not in reach; however, it’s important to make sure that whatever is used can be easily and quickly removed and that it is not so tight as to cause pain or damage.
Although some men use rubber bands, these can be too constrictive and can also be difficult to remove. A better bet is to use a piece of ribbon and tie it around the organ. This is softer on the skin, allows the user to determine the appropriate degree of tightness and is usually easy to remove.
As stated above, DIY sex toys add greatly to solo penis fun – as long as they’re used properly. Even when used properly, enthusiastic utilization may cause soreness, which requires the application of a top-drawer penis health creme (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil). The best bet is to choose a crème which is loaded with a combination of natural moisturizers that can properly soothe and treat the skin, such as Shea butter (a high-end emollient) and vitamin E (a great natural hydrator). The wise man will make sure the crème also contains vitamin C. The reason? Vitamin C, an aid in collagen production, is an important structural component of blood vessels and is a contributor to firm skin. Keep the skin healthy to ensure greater enjoyment.
