We know that India is no place for sex toys, so ladies have to come up with some really thrifty, makeshift dildos and sex toys. And these inventions and discoveries are genius, and I think it's for everyone's benefit that we know all these secrets.
We spoke to some women and asked them what they use as makeshift dildos, here are some things that were really interesting!
Side Note: Please make sure that if you use any of these weird discoveries, that the items are sanitized and you should always use a condom, just in case.
"I was 15 and I really wanted a sex toy because you can't do much with your hands after a point. I was bathing and I really just wanted something to put up there, looked around - decided that a toothbrush end would work great and then I went to town. I then tried an electric toothbrush and that's when I learnt I can squirt. So ladies, toothbrushes - normal and electronic - are great makeshift dildos."
"I was just humping a pillow, as you do, and it had honestly become boring and I wanted to experiment, so I took three markers, shoved them in the finger of a glove and went with it. 10/10 would recommend, it was my earliest discoveries but I stand by it."
"I used my phone once. And no, I didn't shove it inside of me, I downloaded an app that makes your phone vibrate for "massages." I just held it around my vagina and let it do its job - very time taking, but worth it. It was easy and clean!"
"I once used a shampoo bottle. I really wanted something big and firm and I thought that a shampoo bottle would work well. It was the standard Sunsilk bottle, not the big one - the medium-sized one. And as difficult as it was to get in, once I was wet it became really easy. But the pleasure wasn't all that great, so it was kind of a failed experiment."
"The real question is what haven't I used. I have used an electronic toothbrush, the end of a hairbrush, cucumbers, bananas, and the list goes on, but I think the best thing I've used is a wine bottle. The top of a standard Sula bottle works brilliantly. Mind you, it was an empty bottle, without the cap and it was cleaned really well. So it was a good time."
"I used the end of an aloe vera gel bottle once. It was shaped like an aloe vera leaf but the end was blunt, so the thickness really helped. Also, the gel inside was kind of cool so the that added to the whole vibe. It was a really smooth bottle so insertion was super easy and it did the job."
"I actually made a thrifty version of anal beads once. I had an abacus that I hadn't used since I was 10 and I thought I could maybe wire something together. So I took out the beads after a lot of breaking and then got a really strong thread. Put in the beads, tied some knots, and then I went for it. Not in the ass, of course - I'm too scared for that. It was in the vagina, and I really liked the experience. I used that quite a few times."
We hope you can use some of these weird makeshift dildos for your next sexy encounter with yourself. Always remember to stay safe though, use lube, condoms and sanitize!
