Homemade Sex Toys for Men: Creative DIY Pleasure Projects

Let us guess. You’ve forgotten to pack your favorite male sex toy when traveling alone, and now you’re stuck in your hotel room alone with your cock in your hand, wondering if there’s still a chance for a more exciting alone time.

Or perhaps you just want to spice your solo fun without spending money on a top-quality pocket pussy?

Whatever your reason for being here is, you can rest assured to find all your questions answered. One, yes, it’s possible to make your homemade sex toy. And, two, you can take advantage of tons of DIY projects.

The only real limit is your imagination, and budget if a cock tip vibrator is too expensive.

So, buckle up and put your pecker back into your pants (for now). Here are some of our favorite creative DIY homemade male sex toy ideas to spice up your evening.

#1 Sock Pussy

That’s right. If you find yourself separated from your favorite sex toy, you can find a perfect substitute wrapped around your feet. Oh yes, in a matter of seconds, you’ll be able to turn your socks into a terrific homemade masturbator.

What you’ll need:

  • A pair of socks
  • A latex glove
  • Rubber bands
  • Lubricant/condom

DIY Instructions:

  1. Stack your pair of socks together and fold them together (start from the toes and then put them down with the fold underneath).
  2. Put the latex glove inside the sock and ensure it lines the interior.
  3. Secure the sock ends with rubber bands or hair ties and adjust the tightness.
  4. Lube the inside of your sock masturbator - if you don’t have a bought lubricant available, you can use soap or water. You may also use a condom instead.

Et voila! A perfect homemade masturbator made from your socks.

Also, a little pro tip: if you wish to make it feel more realistic, you can use several pairs of socks to create more layers and make it feel softer and tighter.

#2 Rolled Towel Masturbator (Fifi)

Don’t feel like sacrificing your socks? Well, how about the towel?

Indeed, a towel pussy, also known as “fifi” (the term derives from prison slang), is an excellent substitute for pocket pussies, offering incredible sensations.

Its build is similar to a pocket masturbator. However, it has a few twists that, according to some, make it a more lifelike option.

What you’ll need:

  • A towel
  • A latex glove
  • A toothpaste tube (or another cylindrical tube/bottle that fits your cock’s width and length)
  • Rubber bands
  • Lube/condom

DIY Instructions:

  1. Fold a bathroom towel in half lengthwise.
  2. Wrap the glove around the toothpaste tube and place it on one end of the towel - be sure to keep the glove’s cuff outside the towel.
  3. Start rolling the towel around the tube until it looks like an innocent burrito.
  4. Wrap the glove’s cuff around the towel and gently pull the toothpaste tube/water bottle out of the glove.
  5. Secure the ends with rubber bands.
  6. Apply the lube and have fun!

The beauty of towel pussies is that you can use them manually or by lodging them in between the mattress and humping until you come. You can also warm the towel with hot water to make it feel more lifelike.

#3 Ice-Pack Gel Pussy

While socks and towels make excellent homemade sex toys for men, they lack that firm fleshy texture only a real pussy (or a top-quality Fleshlight) has. If you crave that feeling, converting an ice pack into a homemade pocket pussy can be your answer.

It’s soft, it’s fleshy, and it can hold heat for longer to make the experience even more enjoyable.

What you’ll need:

  • 2 reusable gel ice packs
  • A latex glove
  • Rubber bands
  • Lubricant/condom

DIY Instructions:

  1. Take a latex glove and sandwich it between the two ice packs.
  2. Wrap the glove’s cuff around the edges and secure it with rubber bands.
  3. Warm your gel packs under warm water and lube the inside of your gel-pack pussy.

The great thing about an ice-pack homemade masturbator is that it wraps around the cock more firmly, while its fleshy consistency and warmth add a layer of realism to the masturbation experience.

#4 Electric Toothbrush Vibrator

As great as homemade pocket pussies are, your cock isn’t the only thing that requires attention. If you enjoy anal play or anal masturbation, your electric toothbrush can make a fantastic vibrator, especially if you don’t have your anal toy nearby.

What you’ll need:

  • An electric toothbrush
  • A condom
  • Rubber bands
  • Lubricant

DIY Instructions:

  1. Take your electric toothbrush and wrap the condom around it.
  2. Secure the end with rubber bands to ensure the condom doesn’t slip off the toothbrush.
  3. Lube your homemade vibrator up, turn the vibrations on, and stick it in!

When using your toothbrush for anal play, be sure to lube it properly before inserting it into your anus.

Also, if you don’t have any lube or condom nearby, you can also use it to stimulate your gooch (the area between your balls and butt). Doing that while masturbating will make your cum in a blast!

#5 Pringles Pussy

Finishing the can of Pringles is a joyful yet slightly sad moment. Well, what about finishing IN the can of Pringles? Yup, the next one on the list is a homemade Pringles pussy, the next best thing to a homemade fleshlight.

What you’ll need:

  • An empty Pringles can
  • Two sponges (or more)
  • A latex glove
  • Duct tape
  • Scissors/knife
  • Lubricant/condom

DIY Instructions:

  1. Take an empty Pringles can, remove the lid, and wash it.
  2. Now, take the two sponges and sandwich them inside the can - be sure to leave the space for the glove between them (you can use the trick with a tube wrapped in the glove from earlier).
  3. Stick the latex glove between the sponges with a cuff outside.
  4. Wrap the latex cuff around the can’s opening - use duct tape to secure it in place.
  5. Make a hole in the bottom of the can using a knife or scissors. It will prevent the suction from building up once you start thrusting inside (we don’t want to create a penis pump but a pocket pussy). 
  6. Put on a condom and have fun!

And that’s about it. Who would’ve thought that an empty can of Pringles could give as much fun as a full one? So, the next time you finish eating your crisps, don’t throw away the can.

#6 Banana Peel Sleeve

That’s right, folks! We’re now entering the realm of food-based homemade toys, its own type of fetish kind of male sex toy. And the first one is… drum roll, please… a banana! More specifically, banana peel.

So now, we won’t be turning a banana into a homemade dildo (although that’s also an idea). Instead, we’ll be using its peel to create a sleeve for your dick.

What you’ll need:

  • A banana
  • Lubricant/condom

DIY Instructions:

  1. Eat the banana and leave the peel.
  2. Rinse the banana peel in water and flush the remaining bits.
  3. Shake the peel dry and leave it for a moment.
  4. Put the banana into a microwave and heat it up a bit.
  5. Put on a condom or squeeze some lube into the peel.

With the peel lubed and warm, wrap it around your penis and beat the bishop! Oh, and be careful when heating the peel. You don’t want to end up with a burnt cock, do you?

#7 Watermelon Pussy

Staying in the fruity theme, watermelon is another fruit you can turn into a homemade masturbator. And while it sounds like a bit of a stretch, if you like watermelon and masturbating, you’ll be killing two birds with one stone.

What you’ll need:

    A watermelon

DIY Instructions:

  1. Slice the watermelon in half.
  2. Scoop some watermelon pulp and make a ditch-like slide in the middle to make room for your willy.
  3. Stick your dick inside and have fun!

The good news here is that watermelons are naturally soft and wet, so you won’t need any lubricant. Also, you’d be surprised how realistic a watermelon feels.

Trust us on this one. Whenever you miss the feel of a woman's vagina, a watermelon will provide you with the best DIY sensations.

#8 Soap Hole

If you can’t find anything you’d like to turn into a homemade sex toy in your room, the chances are you’ll find it in your bathroom. For instance, a bar of soap.

What’s new about that - may you ask? After all, who hasn’t used soap as lube to drain the monster before? You won’t be using soap for that this time, though. Instead, we’ll be turning it into a simple masturbation toy.

What you’ll need:

  • A bar of soap
  • Something to drill a hole inside (e.g., a pen)

DIY Instructions:

  1. Take your bar of soap (preferably a new one).
  2. Get the pen (or another tool) and drill the hole through the bar for your penis to fit in - it should be wide enough for your dick to fit but small enough to snug around it.
  3. Wet the soap and get to work!

While watermelon feels like pussy, the soap resembles more the sensation of lips moving up and down your dick.

So, if you’re a fan of blowjobs (and let’s face it, who isn’t?), drilling a hole through the bar of soap is an excellent substitute without your partner around to give you one.

#9 Toilet Paper Roll Pussy

Is toilet paper the greatest invention ever? Probably yes. But did you know you can use it for more than just wiping? For instance, you can turn it into a simple and budget-friendly pocket pussy!

What you’ll need:

    A toilet paper roll Rubber bands A latex glove Lubricant/condom

DIY Instructions:

  1. Take a toilet paper roll and remove the cardboard tube.
  2. Insert a condom or latex glove inside the now soft, tubeless roll.
  3. Pull the cuff and snap it around the roll, using the rubber band to keep it tight.
  4. Apply the lube or put on a condom and go for a ride.

Trust us, after this, you’ll never look at your toilet paper the same way again…

#10 Squid Stroker

Yup, you’ve read that right… it is possible to turn a squid into a male masturbator sleeve. And yes, we know it sounds extreme. But if you choose to fly where eagles dare (or dive where squids dare), we guarantee the sensations will be worth your bravery.

What you’ll need:

  • A squid that matches your penis size
  • A condom

DIY Instructions:

  1. Head to the store and find a squid that more or less fits your dick size.
  2. At home, chop off the head and innards.
  3. Give it intense cleaning to ensure there are no leftovers inside (you can also heat it a bit in a microwave or warm water).
  4. Put on the condom, throw some lube into the mix, and let’s prepare a stuffed calamari.

So, the next time you crave some calamari, be sure to buy an extra one just in case you’d like to finish your delicious dinner with a poetic crescendo.

DIY Sex Toys: Tips & Precautions

While homemade sex toys for men aren’t usually as realistic as those found in an online sex toy shop (like ours), they can be extremely fun whenever you want to take your solo session to the next level.

However, there are several things you ought to remember before using your DIY masturbators, both when it comes to enhancing your sensations and safety.

Let’s go through some tips on how to make things more safe and intense:

  • Don’t forget the lube. However you wish to play with yourself, whether it’s massaging your prostate or using a DIY pocket pussy, remember to always use enough lube to prevent bruising your penis or anus. Apply a straightforward rule here - there’s no such thing as too much lubricant.
  • Watch out for sharp edges. This one is self-explanatory. Some of the DIY sex toys listed here, for instance, a Pringles can, do have sharp edges that you wouldn’t like to touch your cock. Therefore, always tape such ends with tape or use a glove’s cuff to cover them. Otherwise, you risk a rather uncomfortable visit to the nearest hospital.
  • Watch the temperature. Most of the above toys can be heated up for more lifelike sensations. However, when doing so, be sure not to overdo it. Burning a dick isn’t a fun thing, so be careful when warming your toy before sticking your cock inside.
  • Use condoms or latex gloves. As you’ve noticed, most DIY pocket pussies include a latex glove. Two things to consider here. First, we’d recommend using XL gloves (preferably dentist latex gloves as they are more durable). Secondly, be sure to use a lot of lube or wear a condom - both for safety and experience.
  • Set the mood. Using a homemade masturbator can significantly enhance your masturbation experience. However, setting the right mood is equally essential. So, the next time you want to grease your pipe, dim the lights, light up a candle, and fantasize about your dream girl. In that scenario, even a mere sock masturbator can turn into a real pussy.

Final Thoughts

And that would be a wrap! As you can see, there are tons of homemade sex toys for men you can try out. And trust us when we say this list only scratches this topic.

The truth is that there are no limits to where your imagination takes you here. Just be sure you take a moment to think before you stick your dick in something… unusual.

And remember, as great as such DIY masturbators are, they can’t beat the sensations offered by manufactured sex toys. They do, however, offer a fantastic alternative whenever you want to beat your meat in style.

So, the next time you want to add something extra to your masturbation session, look around. As you can see, even a toilet paper roll or a pair of socks can be turned into an incredible sex toy.
