Homemade vaginas can be surprisingly practical and frugal. They can be made out of various materials and can be customized to suit individual needs and preferences.
These homemade sex toys are fun to use, but it is crucial that they are properly cleaned and sanitised before and after every use. This will prevent the spread of bacteria and viruses.
1. Olive oil
Olive oil is body safe and is easily available. It’s perfect for vulva and anal massages, masturbating with fingers or glass or steel toys and oral sex. But be careful using this oil, as it may trigger yeast infections or bacterial vaginosis in some people.
It is also recommended to avoid refined cooking oils like canola or vegetable oil as they contain preservatives that might disrupt the pH and good bacteria in the vagina. Sweet almond oil is another great option because it’s rich in vitamins and might have antiviral properties to fight infection. But if you can’t find sweet almond oil, any vegetable oil with no added preservatives will work fine too.
Coconut oil is an excellent lubricant because it’s naturally moisturizing and might help relieve vaginal dryness. It also has a pH close to the human skin’s (3.8 to 4.5) so it’s very comfortable.
You can also use aloe vera gel, which is a natural skin soothing herb that might help moisturize the skin. It’s also available in most supermarkets and is inexpensive to buy.
2. Lemon juice
There are a lot of home remedies that are supposed to tighten the vulva, but they can be at best ineffective and at worst harmful. One such home remedy is lemon juice, which some women use as a vaginal cleanser.
Lemon juice is acidic, which can help balance the pH levels of the vagina and remove any buildup of sweat or bacteria that might cause a bad smell. It also contains a medicinal ingredient called eugenol, which helps desensitize nerve endings and relieve itching. However, this ingredient is not recommended for direct use on the vulva and labia as it may irritate them.
Another problem with using lemon juice as a vaginal cleanser is that it can lead to yeast infections, especially in cases of sudden acidity caused by a decrease in the amount of lactobacilli (friendly bacteria) in the vulva. Yeast infections are characterized by itching, burning, redness and swelling of the vulva.
To avoid a yeast infection, try washing your lady parts with room-temperature distilled water or tea. You can add herbal ingredients to your wash, such as basil leaves and lavender, to help alleviate itching. You can also add a drop or two of essential oil to the mixture to improve its flavor and potency. For example, oregano oil has antifungal and antibacterial properties, while tea tree oil has antiviral and antibacterial effects.
Whether you’re short on money or don’t wish to invest in a real Fleshlight but want a sex toy that feels like one then the internet has been filled with ingenious DIY pocket pussies. These kink-teasing strokers are made from things found in the kitchen or the grocery store, such as cucumbers and carrots. Alternatively you could hollow out a banana peel and put your penis inside, but it’s more likely to result in a choking sensation that’s not exactly pleasurable.
If you don’t want to eat any of these veggies and you have some time on your hands you could make yourself a homemade vagina out of a balloon. It’s actually quite an ingenious idea if you ask me and a great way to get your fingers into the business of penetration. Just remember that vegetables are covered with bacteria and may cause infections if used incorrectly so it’s a good idea to use a condom and wash the area thoroughly.
Yeast infections are common in the vaginal canal and can cause painful discharge, but did you know that there are all natural ways to cure them? Instead of buying expensive products to kill the fungus, try applying acidophilus capsules as suppositories or using yogurt for 3 – 5 days. You can also douche using potassium sorbate, an over the counter product commonly used in winemaking that is very effective at killing yeast.
4. Egg white
A self-proclaimed cougar coach and dating specialist says that rubbing egg whites over your vulva can lighten the skin and bring back youth. She also claims it boosts sperm and makes the vagina more fertile. While there’s no hard science to support these claims, it’s worth trying out the DIY version of a vagacial (vangina facial) at home.
Another ingredient that you may have lying around the house is shea butter. It’s a natural lubricant that can be used for penetration purposes with the right techniques. It’s better than many commercial lubricants as it doesn’t contain any chemicals or preservatives. However, it doesn’t work as well as a good quality silicone lube.
The only drawback to shea butter is that it can cause irritation if a lot is applied. It’s important to use a small amount and to apply it with great care. Other homemade lubes are olive oil and linseed oil. They both work quite well but a lubricant with a lower pH like coconut or sweet almond oil works even better.
Using vegetables as a sex toy is pretty silly but some people love the idea of thrusting themselves through a gnarly veggie tunnel. Jelly is an excellent lubricant and can be heated for extra pleasure. The best thing about it though is that it’s cheap.
