All men masturbate and there’s nothing to be ashamed about it. And while your hand may do the job just fine, if you can make it more exciting, why not do so?

If you’re looking for a different, more intense experience, why not try your hand at crafting a homemade sex toy for men? There are many different ways to go about this, and chances are you have most of the materials already. We’ll walk you through how to make a homemade sex toy for men including vibrating options, masturbation devices, and even cock rings. The next time you’re looking for a bit of pleasure, you’ll have plenty of options. 

DIY Vibrating Sex Toys

When an ordinary masturbation toy just isn’t enough, it’s time to add a vibration element to your experience. While these may be a bit more involved, the end result will be pure ecstasy. 

Electric toothbrush

We can’t stress this enough but if you use an electric toothbrush, it needs to have a brand new head to it. You cannot use an old toothbrush head and you certainly can’t go between using it for your teeth and your anal pleasure. Your teeth are full of bacteria, and so is your toothbrush. Even if you wrap up your electric toothbrush, there is still a risk of that bacteria causing an infection is a very sensitive area. 

You will also want to place a condom over your electric toothbrush. While the feel of the bristles moving may be a great sensation, it can cause abrasion on your sensitive skin. A condom will add a layer of protection and as long as you use a thin condom, you’ll still be able to feel everything. 

Electric razor

While more commonly used for clitoral stimulation, men can take advantage of an electric razor, and they are more likely to own one, too. Just, please, be sure to remove your blade from your razor. This seems obvious but you would be surprised at how many people jump into a task before thinking clearly. 

You can use the (bladeless) electric razor around the base of your penis and experiment with different pressure points. You can even rim it around the entrance of your anus. 

Vibrating kit

Those that want to go the extra mile in crafting a DIY vibrating sex toy may want to invest a bit of money in the process. Amazingly, the Clone-A-Willy and Balls Vibrator Molding Kit allows you to make a mold out of any penis. This could be yours, if you so wish, or a partner. It is perfect if you have a partner in a long-distance relationship but still want to be close with them. 

Vibrating toys

There are many children’s vibrating toys that can be used for nefarious purposes. Think of the once-popular Tickle-Me Elmo. Just be sure to purchase a new toy and do not simply use a child’s already loved toy.

You can hold yourself against the toy, or move it around as needed. You may want to think about using a condom during this process to eliminate a mess at the end. 

Homemade Masturbation Device

There are many, many different devices you can craft that enhance your masturbation sessions. All are meant to try to closely replicate the feeling of penetration. 


While the term refers to masturbation devices made in prison, you can use this idea at home. Take a towel and wrap it up. Then, place a latex glove through the hole. Thread the glove and then spread the opening back around the towel. The result should be a very firm contraption with a hole in the middle. 

You can use lube with your fifi or try it out with just the latex glove to see what feels best. 

Toilet paper roll

Everyone has a roll of toilet paper in their home and this is an excellent masturbation device. It’s best to use a half roll as this will allow you to grip it better. 

To craft your device, start by removing the inner cardboard tube as this will provide too much chafing. Then, you want to insert a latex glove. This will provide a barrier against the paper so there isn’t too much scratching. Finally, place lube inside the glove for a better sensation. 


You can use common PVC pipe from a hardware store. Just cut it to a preferable length, lube up and please yourself.


To make use of sponges, you will need a few objects. First, you will need a tube such as a plastic bottle or a Pringles can. If you are using a bottle, cut off the top but make sure the edge isn’t jagged. 

Find some sponges and stuff them into the can. You may have to cut them off to fit all in. Be sure to pack the sponges in for maximum pleasure and leave a small hole in the middle. The hole does not have to be too wide as the sponges will compact further with pressure. 

Place a latex glove into the middle of the hole and add some lube. You can then insert your penis and grip the side of the can or bottle for movement. If you don’t have a latex glove, you can also use a condom. 


Chances are you have a box of cornstarch in your pantry and in just a few steps, you can craft your very own homemade sex toy. 

Start by mixing ¼ cup of cornstarch with 100 ml of water. Stir until it is dissolved into the water. Then, add another 100 ml of water and give it a good mix. 

Place the mixture into the microwave for 1 minute. When you take it out, it should be a gel-like consistency. Gently hollow out a hole, put don’t make the hole go all the way to the bottom of the container. If the mixture is too runny and isn’t setting, pop it in the microwave for another 30 seconds. 

Place the cornstarch container into your fridge and leave for an hour. After this, it should be a solid mass, although with a rubbery feeling. Slide the mixture out of the jar. It should hold together. Then, go and have some fun. 

Couch pillows

An old staple, couch pillows work for a reason. They are easy to find, easy to use, and provide enough resistance for a great experience. 

Start by making sure your pillows are clean. You don’t want to ruin the experience and use old, gross pillows. Then, to avoid a huge mess, you will want to use a condom. While you can forego this step, you may find the resulting clean-up to be a pain. Once firmly wrapped, simply position yourself between the pillows. You may have to adjust or use your hands for increased pressure. 

Towel and glove

While we don’t suggest using a fancy guest towel, make sure it is clean and the fluffier, the better. Roll your towel up nice and snug. Then, push a latex glove through the opening. Add some lube to the glove and you can insert yourself into the hole. A tighter wrapped towel will add more pressure and provide an easier way to grip the bundle. 

Bubble wrap

A texture perfect for a lot of purposes, bubble wrap is an excellent homemade masturbation device. Take a layer of bubble wrap and roll it into a bundle. You may want to test it out to see if the material creates too much chafing. If so, either put on a condom or push a latex glove into the opening.

You can choose to either hold the bubble wrap together or use duct tape for a tighter roll.


Pool floaties are meant to go around the arms of children to keep them floating in water. You can use floaties for masturbation toys as they have a small enough hole inside of them. The plastic floaties are made up of can be a bit hard, so it’s best to use either a latex glove or a condom. This will increase the slippery feeling and ensure you don’t get a painful rash from the friction. 


While there are a lot of foods you can use for DIY sex toys for men, watermelon is convenient and has the perfect texture. Start by cutting off the top of a watermelon. Then carve out a small, long hole. You may need to widen the hole slightly as while the watermelon will compact slightly, you don’t want it to be uncomfortable.

Again, you can try placing your penis into the watermelon on its own, or if the sensation is a bit off, use a condom. Hopefully it goes without saying, but once you are done with the watermelon, please don’t eat it. 

Ice pack gel

Ice packs are not actually made out of ice, but a gel material that makes it easier to freeze. You can harness this gel for your own purposes. 

Start by taking an ice pack and opening it up. While you may be able to use the pack itself, if the shape doesn’t permit it, you will need to put the gel substance into a different, wider container. You can certainly try to masturbate with just the gel but for less mess, try using a condom. For a more powerful sensation, try using the gel when it is still cold. You may need to take breaks when doing this, but it may be a sensation you come to enjoy. 

Household Prostate Massager

Your Trusted Source Prostate: Functions, diseases, and tests The prostate gland contributes prostatic fluid to semen. Common problems include an enlarged prostate, prostatitis, and prostate cancer. Find out more. sits just below your bladder but you can actually feel it through the thin wall of your rectum. Stimulating your prostate gland can result in some very pleasurable experiences. However, always be careful when sticking anything inside your body. There are enough horror stories about hospital visits and you don’t want to be caught in an embarrassing situation. 

Go bananas

There’s a reason so many health officials use a banana to demonstrate how to put on a condom. While most likely larger than a penis, it is firm and when used correctly, can certainly take the place of one.

If you ware going to insert a banana into your anus, there are a few safety measures to consider. First, we recommend placing a condom over it. Not only will this provide a more lubricated feeling but it will protect your vulnerable insides from the rough texture of the banana peel. 

Using a banana is also not recommended for anyone who does not have experience with anal play. Bananas are large and unless you have experience with either a penis or an anus dildo inside of you, they should be approached with caution. 


While not all hairbrushes are up to this task, if you have one with a long, thin handle, you can definitely use it as a household sex toy. Again, though, there are certain safety issues to consider. 

Make sure there are no cracks in the hairbrush. Having it break off is the last thing you want. If the hairbrush is made from a flimsy plastic material, it may be best to try something sturdier. 

We also suggest using a condom with the hairbrush for an extra layer of protection against abrasions. 

Felt pen

Those that are new to anal play may be curious, but it’s important to start slowly. Don’t go reaching for that flashlight and instead grab a felt pen. They have the perfect length and are also thin enough for easier insertion.

With a felt pen, as long as you are using the bottom part, you can simply lube it up a bit. However, if you want to, you can also fit a condom over it, first. If you aren’t using a condom, just be sure to wash it with warm soapy water both before and after. 

Wooden spoon

A good old wooden spoon can work wonders for reaching your prostate gland. Make sure the spoon isn’t too old, as you don’t want it to break off. You may also want to purchase a new one for this express purpose. It can be quite embarrassing if someone is over and reaches for your spoon to actually cook with it. 

Again, using a condom over your wooden spoon is recommended. It will provide lubrication and prevent any cuts or tearing.

Pearl necklace

Ok, we are definitely not suggesting that you use an actual pearl necklace in this section. Real pearl necklaces are expensive and there’s a good chance the one you go to use isn’t actually yours. It’s definitely not nice to take another person’s pearl necklace and use it for your own masturbation session. 

You can find an imitation pearl necklace for a very reasonable price and this might be the better option. The one thing you will definitely want to do first, however, is to inspect all the individual beads. Make sure they are connected and there is no risk of them falling apart. Remember, you do not want to have to go to the hospital and explain what has happened. 

DIY Cock Ring

Trusted Source Are Cock Rings Safe? 17 FAQs About Benefits, Risks, Use, and More Cock rings help trap blood in and around the penis during arousal. This can make your erection harder — and slightly larger. It can also delay orgasm and, when you’re ready, result in an intense climax. Curious? Here’s how to find the right fit and other tips for safe use. work to restrict the blood flow around a penis. As a result, your erection will be longer and harder, adding to an increase in sensations. 


Regular shoelaces are an easy way to craft your own cock ring. Essentially, all you need to do is take a new, clean shoelace, and tie it around your penis. For a more intense sensation, tighten the knot.  

We would recommend tying a knot that is easy to untie, like a bow. If your shoelace knot is too tight, you may need to use scissors to remove it, and that will become a delicate manner. 


If you don’t already have one, head to your local pharmacy and purchase a tensor bandage. They come in all shapes and sizes, and for a cock ring, you want a thinner version. Wrap this around your flaccid penis and use a clip to hold it together. 

As you become erect the bandage will give slightly but not too much as to decrease the sensation. You can also adjust the tightness as you wish. The nice thing about a bandage is that it is very easy to remove so there is no real safety issue.

Hair tie

Hair ties make for perfect DIY cock rings. Inside is an elastic band but outside there is a softer layer for both comfort and protection. Start by finding a hair tie you are comfortable with. Many are meant for women, so you may want to find a plain black one if you are feeling more masculine.

Also note that different hair ties have different elasticity and some may be looser than others. If you find one that is too loose, either purchase a different one or fold it over for a tighter constriction.

Cling wrap

This is another easy to craft homemade sex toy and is perfect but cause almost everybody has a roll of cling wrap in their kitchen. 

Rip off a square of cling wrap and role it together. Try to stretch it as you roll so it remains firmly together. When used like this, cling wrap won’t break.

You can then wrap the cling wrap around your penis. You can use one rope at the base or use multiple ropes up to the tip of your penis. Just leave a bit of the rope loose at the end so you can easily remove it when finished. 

Homemade Sensation Toys

Those who want even more pleasure with their masturbation toys will want to incorporate new sensations. This will add a whole new level to what you are feeling.  

Ice cubes

Ice is a popular sensation as it adds an extreme feeling but is relatively safe. You can really play around with ice cubes. Rub one on and around your penis, and even try rimming your anus with it. Also try using an ice cube, removing it, and then placing it back on again. 

Latex gloves

There is absolutely so much you can experience from a simple latex glove. First, they are key in many masturbation devices. Latex gloves provide a thin barrier so you have a maximum sensation but are protected from abrasive textures. Plus, they make clean-up a lot easier. 

There are plenty of other ways to use latex gloves. If you are someone who likes a bit of spanking, you can take a latex glove, flip it back, and flagellate yourself. 

You can also try using a latex glove in your anus. Cover your hand in the glove and this will allow you to easily insert your fingers, or even your whole hand if you are experienced. 


Sometimes a small enhancement can make a big difference. If you are a fan of traditional masturbatory practices, why not trying a bit of oil when going about your task. Oil is a lovely lubricant that is easy to wash off. 

Coconut oil is a good starting place. You can also try a more elegant option, such as Earthly Body Dare to be Bare Soothing Miracle Oil. Made from tea tree oil and hemp seed, this has a great smell to it and will provide a wonderful sensation. 

Feather duster

It’s always odd how we can tickle other people but we can’t tickle ourselves. But a tickling sensation can be just what you’re looking for, even if you are flying solo. 

A feather duster can provide you with this sensation. Start by using a clean feather duster as you don’t want a bunch of dirt in your sensitive areas. Then, play around. Tease yourself and pay attention to what works where. Take a break and then get back to it.

This is a great foreplay exercise for when you want to prolong the sensation.

Restrain bandages

Another versatile home idea, you can do a lot with bandages. First, you can try wrapping them around your penis as a bit of a DIY cock ring. Bandages can hold tight and their elasticity means there will be pressure as well as flexibility. 

You can also be a bit more creative. Start with a solid object, such as a few pens that are held together by a rubber band. This is too hard of a surface but you can then wrap it in a bandage for a more cushiony feeling. Finally, place everything in a latex glove for easier insertion. 

Faucet jets

Women have long understood the pleasure that faucet jets give but men, too can take advantage of their sensations. Perhaps it’s just that women are more likely to take baths, but there’s nothing stopping a man from getting similar pleasure.

When water shoots out of a faucet, it causes a lot of pressure which you can use to your advantage. You have two choices with this sensation. You can angle yourself face-forward and have the water gently massage your penis. You can also turn backwards and have it angled towards the opening of your anus. It’s best to try around and find a position that works best for you. 

Final Thoughts

If you are left to your own devices, why not get a little creative? Pleasuring yourself is a natural act and everybody does it. For those that are tired of their hand, or want something more creative than a sock, there are many DIY contraptions you can craft. From bundling up a towel to inserting a hairbrush, the possibilities are endless. Whatever you decide on using, be sure to use plenty of lube for both easier penetration and for a better feeling. If you decide on inserting something into your anus, always make sure it can’t easily break off. Finally, try to use new or clean items to prevent the spread of bacteria and infections. Crafting a homemade sex toy for men can be quite fun, especially when you know how much pleasure you will get out of it.
