We could probably write an encyclopedia on the many benefits of masturbation. It can boost your mood, help you fall asleep, teach you new things about your own sexual pleasure, and yeah—orgasms feel freakin’ amazing. Using your hand is one way (of many) to get off, but a lot of penis owners take their solo sessions up a notch with a male masturbator, such as the Fleshlight.
But hey, we get it. Sex toys are expensive. We presume that’s why there are tens of thousands of people Googling some variation of “how to make a pocket pussy” and “DIY Fleshlight” every month—well, that, plus the fact that society still wrongly stigmatizes male masturbation and the use of awesome toys. But we digress. The point is, the internet is teeming with tutorials on how to make your own male masturbator from everyday household items, and we have to say, they’re pretty creative!
Some important takeaways from the hours we spent watching DIY pocket pussy videos (yeah, you’re welcome, readers!): latex gloves, sponges, rolled-up hand towels, rubber bands, and lotion come up a lot. The key with any homemade masturbator is to have a lubed-up sleeve at the core, surrounded by something that’s soft, yet sturdy.
If you’re planning to build your own sex toy, there are a few safety tips to keep in mind, says Kenneth Play, an international sex educator, sex hacker, and creator of the Sex Hacker Pro Series. “Don’t make the rubber band too tight,” he recommends. “If you’re allergic to latex, make sure you don’t use latex gloves. Nitrile Gloves are an alternative option and are usually smoother on the inside.”
Pro tip: if your homemade contraption involves a hand towel, “You can soak the towel you’re using in water, then warm it up in the microwave to avoid that awful chill on your junk,” Play says. “Just be really careful not to make it too hot; do a skin test on your hand before putting it on your nether parts.”
Ready to get crafting? We found some of the most-watched DIY male masturbator videos on YouTube and collected them here. Choose the one that’s right for you based on the products you have on-hand. (Of course, if you’re not especially crafty, you can always this route: “Someone did use a warm grapefruit on me once, and it was spectacular,” Play says.)
